So I had an interesting little convo with SO last night, but first, some backstory: while cleaning our room a few weeks ago, I found a creased-up printout of several random dates. Handwritten next to them was the word “proposal.” I went to the calendar to see what the significance of these dates are, and figured out that they’re all Saturdays where my SO is off work and my daughter is with her father — in other words, weekends that would be perfect for a romantic, surprise proposal! One of the dates is this Saturday, the 10th. I got really excited about the whole spreadsheet but since it has dates throughout the next six months on it and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have a ring yet, I figured my proposal wouldn’t be coming any time soon.
So, the conversation: last night I asked him if we had any plans for Saturday, because there’s a restaurant downtown I really like and haven’t been to in a while and I’d like to go. He said no, no plans, so I brought up the restaurant idea. He said, well, maybe. I got a little annoyed, haha. I said, what do you mean, maybe? We haven’t been there in forever, we have nothing to do Saturday, and I really want to go! He said, just maybe, babe, and gave me a little grin. Like he had a secret.
Now I’m wondering if he does have something planned for Saturday…he always told me it would be a complete surprise and I’d never see it coming. I definitely wouldn’t see this coming! It’s way too early in the timeline!
I know I’m probably getting my hopes up, but there’s nothing wrong with that, right? 🙂 We’ll have a good weekend regardless. I just thought I’d share and see what you all think!

Ohh, I’m crossing my fingers for you that that little grin of his is a sign! Even if it’s not this Saturday, it really seems that it will be happening soon =)

Well, I was sort of right… turns out Saturday was the day he would have done it if his original proposal plan hadn’t gotten wrecked (long story short, he had tried to involve a bunch of people in the surprise and they ended up bailing, which ruined his original plan). Anyway, we DID go to the mall on Saturday to visit the ring I picked out months ago, haha! He’s trying to find a jeweler who can make a replica for cheaper (the store at the mall wants $4k for a 1 carat white gold ring — ridiculous!) but I still enjoyed going back and putting it on a second time! He did tell me that we’ll definitely be engaged by the time our 2-year anniversary comes around, which is at the end of May, so at least I only have 5 months at most to wait! I’m so excited!
