Oooh I won something! πŸ˜€

He’s been bringing it up a lot more lately so I thought I’d try to get something out of him – I’ll admit I’ve been a little naughty but I now have a 3 month time frame for when it’s going to happen πŸ˜‰ somewhere this winter – which is from June 1 to Sep 1 (my birthday) here. 


So now I’m going to have to figure out how to shut it up for at least another 3 months! Since starting the SIUP I went from mentioning it like once an hour to once a week so it’s definitely helping πŸ™‚

I need to join the pact for this week! πŸ™‚ I’m in! I’m feeling like my proposal might come in early June, so I need to really shut it up until then! He already knows what style ring I would like, so I need to just zip it!

I’m fairly newly waiting but I think it’s already time to join the pact! My BFF is planning her wedding and my Boyfriend or Best Friend is very sweet & talks to me about the planning and stuff. This sometimes leads to us talking about our future wedding. I *think* he’s saving for a ring (I saw he saved a couple pics of rings from my pinterest and we NEVER go out to fancy places anymore so he’s either saving or has a drug habit I’m not aware of!). It’s all making me a little crazy and for my OWN sanity, I have to stop thinking about it!! So my Pact includes not talking to ANYONE in my life about “my wedding”. Thankfully, I’ll have you all. πŸ™‚

This is going to be a hard week! I’ve been pretty good at SIUP so far, but I’m visiting my SO for a long weekend, and it’s harder when we’re around each other all the time. Yesterday he brought up where he might want to get married and how many of his family to invite, so of course I talked about it too. We had a good conversation, but ever since then, I’ve been itching to talk about it MORE. 


I’m trying to hold strong! Grrr. Can only respond to what he brings up. Talk about books and movies. Not weddings, not weddings.

Here we go again…even though my Boyfriend or Best Friend is meeting my silence with counter-attacks of wedding talk and hinting. He must have figured out my new “technique”.

I’m in, again!  A few weeks ago, I promised that I wouldn’t bring it up for 6 months!!!  I really hope I get a proposal by September…If not, I don’t know how long I’ll be able stay quiet.  He wants to move in to my house but I told him I’d like to be engaged first.  His apartment lease is up June/July.  I really really really really hope he does it before then.  Only time will tell.  Until then, I’m going to SIU!

I’m a new-bee here, but I definitely need to join in on this pact.  I can’t stop thinking about marriage, which leads me to want to talk about the future with my Boyfriend or Best Friend allllll the time.  I need to just stop!!

I’m also a new-bee here and I too need to join this pact. I actually do need to have a discussion with my bf about the future and where we’re headed but I’ve been bringing up the subject waaay too much recently and it’s not doing any good. For the time being (possibly forever) no proposal is coming my way. So I’ve decided to completely drop the subject for the next few months and spend more time focusing on other things/goals than are important to me. I need a break from it all.

I’ve been fairly good recently, until I had a dream on Saturday night about a proposal. I talk in my sleep so next morning he asked me what I was going on about :-/

I’m trying to make an extra effort not to mention anything until after our anniversary on the 29th..!
