Ok, long story short, he’s had the ring for a couple of weeks now. I thought he was going to do it on our 4th of July trip to see his friends. Nope. Then I thought last weekend. He wanted to go “walk Red Rocks”. That to me was lets go hike and see nature and all that stuff. To him it meant lets go run the stairs and work out. Needless to say, I got duped into a horrific work out that almost made me throw up and pass out. Thanks babe! I just feel like I need to say yes to everyone of his off the wall plans because it might just be “the moment”. I will say though it has been leading us on some random crazy adventures which have been fun (minus the almost puking and passing out ).
Well this weekend we are headed up to Breckenridge to do some hiking and shopping during the day and then going in to Vail to stay the night and have dinner at a very fancy restaurant that we both love. Could this finally be it? Part of me has thought that he would wait to do it in the mountains. We are huge fans of the mountains out here (big snowboarders in the winter). He originally told me a couple of months back (after spilling the beans about asking my dads permission) that he wanted to do it on the slopes when we went up for a weekend of snowboarding but he didn’t want to wait until November to do it. So I am left wondering if this could really be it. The only other date I can think of would be our 2 year anniversary which is coming up in a couple of weeks. The day falls on a Tuesday though and I wouldn’t see him proposing during the week.
We’ll see, Vail can be very romantic. Especially in the evening. Here’s hoping that my wait is over!!!! What do you ladies think? I am starting to think that I am over analyzing everything…..

@Soon2BeBee: You probably are over thinking everything, but that’s part of the fun,right? Just try to relax and enjoy the crazy, it’ll be surprising no matter what, and you’ll be as happy as a clam soon.

I know! I hope it is but I am not going to get amped up over it and then be sad if it doesn’t. I don’t want to spoil the weekend with a sour sttitude over it. I need to keep telling myself that HE HAS THE RING. Unless some horrific even happens that splits us up, it’s going to happen and it’s going to happen soon. I see a lot of bees on here whose SO held onto their ring for MONTHS before propsing. I’ve only waited a couple of weeks so far. I have no room to complain!

I’m sure you will have so much fun on your trip! That’s hilarious about your SO making your “hike” a workout…that’s like my SO. He goes so fast and it kind of makes it less fun for me. I want to go and hike at a comfortable pace and enjoy the views and meditate and look at the ground for animals, insects, and fungi…lol. Not rush up a mountain at 10k feet where my sea-level residing lungs and I hyperventilate ;p. Maybe you will come home with a proposal this time:).

@Marry Jane I am pretty sure he didn’t mention the work out portion because he knew I would more than likely decline lol. It’s hard enough running stairs but running stairs at that elevation is ridiculous! I’m like you, I want to check out the views/scenery and watch for animals, get away from all of the people and find some secluded spots. Nope! We had to be right where everyone else was. Imagine my embarrasment when I was bent over a trash can almost puking and all of these other people were practically in a bootcamp style work out class…. Each time we went for another round of stairs I kept thinking in my head “wedding, wedding, wedding”. If I wasn’t going to get a ring out of the day I was definitely going to use it as a shape up day for the eventual wedding lol….
