I want to start off by apologizing to any bee I may have judged in my head in the past for “getting her hopes up.” This waiting sh!t is harder than I thought! Kudos to us all lol
Ring was ordered in May after a 2-3 month (laid back but focused) search for the perfect stone and setting. He picked it up in June and has had it locked in the safe ever since. I haven’t peeked; our timeline has always been late Summer/early Fall after some summer trips we had planned to meet extended fam, travel together etc. Our last family trip wrapped up over Labor Day weekend so I was super excited this past weekend because it was the first weekend it could happen.
It was a great weekend overall. I did have a PMS breakdown Friday night where I got myself worked up over what I feel has been a lack of affection over the last month or so. Whomp. Whomp. No proposal for me because I was too busy throwing a fit. Saturday was college football so I knew he wouldn’t peel himself away long enough to propose lol. Sunday however, was beautiful! We went to the movies and saw a great film (everyone go see The Butler), we got cupcakes and ate them on a bench on the waterfront, watching the boats float by…the whole romantic, day date nine yards. We grab pizza for dinner and head home to watch the US Open Women’s Final and he goes into his bedroom and yells “close your eyes” My heart stopped. Unfortunately, it was so I wouldn’t look at the TV as the match had already started and he wanted to rewind it for me lol. He apologized immediately saying “oops, I realize what you might have thought” You’re damn right that’s what I thought. *inner scream*
Dunno how much more of this I can take. I know the main piece of advice is going to be “chill, relax, enjoy your life and your man and your relationship and don’t think about it….” I definitely need to hear these things but if any other anxious, excited bees have better advice, I’d prefer that!
