Once again it is time to see how long we can *Audience play-back* SHUT-IT-UP!
That’s right! The once a week game show where we see how long these lovely bees can keep their mouth shut and not mention anything ring/engagement/wedding/marriage related to their SO’s or anyone else highly significant in their lives (ie: mom’s, BFFs, Coworkers, ect.)
Last week was a special 3 way tie! The winners are MYSELF (@Sapphire-Dreamer), @EvenAngelsFall & @stillwaiting88: Hurrah for us! Congrats ladies for lasting a whole 7 days w/o a mention of anything ring/engagement/wedding/marriage related! Woohoo, Let’s give ’em a round of applause, guys! *applause* And to commemorate the the friendship we use the on the BEE to get us through the bad waiting days and share our Good days. Because we know that sometimes that’s what gets us through the day, until it is our day…*Tear*.
For this accomplishment we present you with the triple bee friendship bracelet!
Now before we get this week’s game started lets go over the rules of our lovely game:
Here are the rules/exceptions:
This is only good for our SO’s. But If you are feeling the need to ‘Shut It Up’ in front of other people then please share.
If our SO’s mention Rings/engagement/wedding/marriage first then we have the right to respond, but for Pete’s sake, Be Cool About It!
If your SO catches you:
Watching a wedding show
Surfing wedding porn on Pintrest
On the Bee Boards
And he makes a face, let’s think of that as a 1/2 point deduction. (There will be no actual points, just a joke)
So practice stealth bees! And good luck!

Congrats!!! This will be my third week attempting 100% success on this pact. Last week, I had a great week, only to screw it up right at the last minute… but something good came out of it. I feel so much more confident in this week and the following to come. I’ll be here to support the other bees too!

I need to do better this week. I have had really hard time keeping my mouth shut (See Update/ How to deal with waiting resentment?).
I am 75% sure that he’s going to pop the question next weekend on vacation so I need to sit tight until then at least.

- Wedding: November 2014 - Historic cinema
I think I need to join in this week…and every week! :/
We had a talk the other week and he asked me if we can get through the rest of this year and then “we’ll see” next year.
Since then every film, tv show, Facebook post has been wedding related and I can’t keep my trap shut!
So, am in it to win it! :p

Haha, congrats to the bees who kept their traps shut! I sucked terribly this week… going to try and be better about it this week.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Congratulations to last week’s winners! I am game to try it out this week! My SO and I are in a LDR, so I’ll have a somewhat easier time when it comes to surfing WeddingBee/Pinterest. My difficulty lies in shutting my mouth when we’re on the phone at night/texting throughout the day! (And trust me, it’s a lot harder than it seems when a proposal is all I seem to be thinking about lately.)
The good/bad news is I KNOW for a FACT that my proposal will not be happening anytime in September since I won’t be seeing him again until Columbus Day in Oct. So that should make it just a little easier for me to Shut It Up! Right??? :/

Nice work ladies! I’m going to give this another shot, SO and I ended up squeezing in some ring shopping that turned out to be highly succesful. We had a great experience and the store is having a diamond event in November that I’m hoping SO will go to. 🙂

I already messed up this week… and it blew up in my face!! 🙁
Which is why the rest of you bees should “shut it up!” Maybe I can go the rest of the week without slipping up. Sigh.

@HeartsandSparkles: I tried to get it all out of my system yesterday (which blew up in my face also). Hopefully I can just sit tight this week.

I wanna play again!!! This week has been ESPECIALLY hard so I need the accountability. Here’s to another successful week 🙂 We can do it ladies….

Maybe next week. I blew it already LOL

I am really going to try to do this. My only concern is that we are leaving for a four day trip tomorrow to celebrate our 9th anniversary (which was actually 2 weeks ago) and I hoping for something special to happen. So I will cross my fingers and shut my mouth all week….hopefully.

I’m definately in for this week. I blew it last Thursday but have been really good these last few days with the exception of mentioning about babies tonight. But it was a short statement and I believe things are ok with that. I do need some major accountability if I’m going to give it my all and give him a chance to propose without mr bothering him before the date in which I’m willing to walk

@Sweetheartchic: Nothing good ever comes of me bringing it up, I feel like that is the only thing we fight about. Now that it is out of our systems, let’s be good the rest of the week!
@stillwaiting88: You can do it!! I believe in you!
