@ChristineMarie5711:  Hi, welcome! I’m also 23 and I got engaged at the 3.5 year mark, one week after my birthday, and learned that FH had the ring for 3 months before that, lol. You have a huge family! I don’t but FH has a slightly bigger family than me (they are all over the world though – most of them still in Europe).

It’s great that you are going to be a nurse. I have so much respect for nurses – the real healers in my opinion!

Welcome to the bee and I hope you get your ring soon enough!

@ChristineMarie5711:  Well we’re aiming for February 2015 since we would love a winter wedding (hopefully with snow!) and that’s a good time of the year for our guests to fly in. We’re not having a destination wedding, but most of our family (except parents) live far enough away that they’ll have to fly here. We only have a very small guest list – like 40 people including some kids.

I hope the nursing works out for you! FH and I are becoming teachers, and right now we just give music lessons to kids. It’s good practice.

Hi and welcome to the hive!! 🙂 Hopefully it won’t be too much longer until he asks!! 🙂 It’s exciting, isn’t it!? My SO has the ring too and I think I might be an engaged bee next week EEEEEEEK!!! 🙂

I didn’t come from a big family, it was just me, my sister and my parents who are still married. But I have three boys and my SO has two girls and a boy so there are 8 of us altogether and I wouldn’t change it for anything!! 🙂

@ChristineMarie5711:  well I hope he doesn’t keep you waiting too long! Have you seen the ring? Did y’all shop for it together or did he pick it out? My SO went shopping with my dad (cute!) and I didn’t really have any say but I was okay with that, I wanted whatever he chose for me.

@ChristineMarie5711:  My SO showed me the ring the day he bought it–I think it was excitement/wanted to make sure I liked it because he picked it out all on his own lol. Now it’s killing me cause it sits in the closet. gahh!

Yes they have a good relationship, my parents love him 🙂 His parents adore me, it’s good all around and everybody is on board with us getting engaged 🙂
