Try to keep busy and your mind off of it as much as possible (as impossible that may seem) to keep your sanity!

I agree! Keep busy and keep your mind off it!

I voted random day but thats not exactly accurate. We had a trip to Mexico planned for my birthday and he did it on the first day of the trip (which was not my birthday). So it was kinda for vacation, kinda for my birthday, and 100% awesome 🙂
Good luck waiting… it will be worth it!

Uhm….try a really intense cardio workout..you won’t have time to think if you’re breathing hard enough with your iPod in…or try sudoku or something, or reading a book. Something that takes you away from “reality” or makes you really focus and think. Or cleaning! hardcore cleaning usually takes my mind to a whole other place lol. A scary place, but a place nontheless. lol.
Oh, and pre-congrats and try not to explode! haha

Go shopping, hang out with the girls, watch some old dvd’s.. Whatever you do just don’t burst.

Yeah, so exciting. My Fiance proposed at Christmas Eve. That was after saying he was going to do it on my B-day. Then someone ruined it. Then it was going to be a Disney World. Then someone ruined it. He did not want anyone to tell him when to do it, so everytime someone mentioned it he put it off. So I hope that it all comes true.

My 26th B-Day falls on a Saturday this year, which we all know does not come around too often. My Boyfriend or Best Friend knew what day of the week my b-day was on before I even looked it up. ‘m praying that is when it will happen. Can’t get my hopes up though because I can’t take the let down AGAIN!

I was a random day…we had just gotten back from vacation and he proposed! It was by far the best day of my life!
To keep yourself busy, tire yourself out! I like the intense cardio workout! That will help to keep you on the go go go and make you crash at night so that your mind isn’t wandering all over the place! Do you own a house? Start a project that you’ve been meaning to work on.
Clean out your closet! When do we ever have time to try on every article of clothing in our closets and decide what to keep or give away?? That can definitely take a full day for me! I see you’re in NYC – take a trip to a nearby beach for the day. This weekend is supposed to be hot, hot, hot in the northeast! Do you like to read? Get lost in a really good book in Central Park if you don’t want to get away!
I hope those help, and good luck when the day comes! Happy Birthday :o)

TWo peas and all you ladies: I don’t know what I’d do without my bees! I am on the elliptical now! Been sweatin it out for a few weeks but I love these other suggestions.
I’m also painting my nails a lot and gonna try a self tanner soon (no sun for me). Gonna do it the hard and slow way. Exfoliate. Mosturize. Apply. Wait. And the gradual kind.
Cleaning out closet and apt is next on my list too! Hoping I only have a 4 day wait! Xoxo
Sd I hope you get your saturday bday proposal too!! Xoxo
