- Wedding: September 2012
Hello, Hive!! I’m so excited to have joined this website, though I feel a bit premature in writing. See, I’m not engaged….yet.
My boyfriend (Mr. Big Truck) and I just celebrated our 3-year anniversary this past week, July 20th, 2011. Big milestone for us, I feel, as we’ve had our ups and downs, especially this past year. Also, this is the longest relationship I’ve ever had. I’m prone to boredom and constantly need change, so for him to have kept me interested for this long is something to brag about!
Anyway, I digress. So we’re not engaged yet, but the search for the ring has begun! We’ve been talking engagement for many months, now. The actual act of ring shopping/buying has been put on the backburner more times than I can count, however. Primarily because Mr. Big Truck spent quite a bit of money recently and bought a house for us .
He’s been living there on his own for several months, and I’ve told him that I won’t move in with him until we’re at least engaged (per my parent’s wishes). So recently he’s been saying it’s time for us to get engaged, get married, and start a family together… All of which I’m VERY excited about!
I am CONSUMED with all things wedding, at this point. Which drives my friends crazy because I’m not even engaged yet! But I stumbled upon this site and immediately fell in love with it. I joined as a member and swore I wouldn’t write or do anything UNTIL I was engaged, that way, I’d feel more like one of the Hive.
But I couldn’t help myself! I’m on this site for hours on end reading blogs, looking at wedding gowns and photos and rings and DIY tricks and WHOO! It’s sensory overload!
So while I’m not quite in the club yet (one day this finger will get it’s ring!), I’d just like to say hello and hopefully update with our progression from time to time.
Until that big proposal day comes, I’m forced to continue to obnoxiously troll every wedding gown/engagement ring/photog site the internet has to offer, until I can finally post some pics of my own goodies!
Happy Hiving to you all
