I’m so excited, and scared, and in cloud 9. I’ve known about the ring’s arrival since mid-April, and since then, I’ve been browsing forums, googling things like, “He has the ring! When is he going to propose?!” and “How to deal with anticipation.” Then, I found this lovely little site, and I’ve discovered that there are ladies who in the same boat as me! It’s great to know that I’m not alone in this one! Reading all the posts and seeing the pictures brings me relief, in some strange way. I like reading about the happy feelings of excitement, fear, and anticipation; and then reading the “Finally engaged!” postings. 🙂 I also love looking at pictures of the happily and newly engaged couples and their ring! <3
I only discovered Mr. Monster’s purchase because of a string of “unfortunate events” on his part. First, he tried to get me sized (with that engagement ring!) while I was asleep. I woke up, but realized instantly what he was doing, and pretended to fall back asleep with a twitch and a kick. Then, I found an envelope (billing statement enclosed) from Blue Nile! 🙂 Then, my sister slipped. That’s another story in itself. But yes! Been waiting and wondering about that ring and how he’s going to do it since then. My birthday is coming up in less than 2 weeks. I’m wondering if he’ll do it then… XD
Mr. Monster loves me a lot, and I know he wants this to be special. He’s given me some clues for my birthday. We’re going to be at Disneyland for the first 2 days – that’s where we got together 3.5 years ago. After Disney, we’ll be heading over to San Diego, the the mini-vacation location of our first date! Maybe this year’s birthday is another special birthday… or maybe it’s an even more special birthday… either way, I’m excited that he wants us to take the next step together!
I daydream about the ways he’ll do it… I wonder what the ring looks like…

I’m also in waiting and know how time seems to crawl! Trying to size you while you slept – that’s hilarious! Tell us about the slip by your sister!

I laughed about trying to size while you slept too… poor Mr. E would probably do something along those lines. ^_^ (If I had’nt filled in my ring size on at least three websites, knowing it would default save. Guys are, well, guys. They need some help from time to time. 😉
I’m new to waiting as well and am determined to be (as) patient (as possible). Ha! Welcome!

Good morning, Lovely Lady Bees! 🙂
Thank you for the kind words, welcomes, and patient encouragements! 🙂 I am super excited to be here! Extra happy that I found this site! <3 <3 <3 I felt so much better after letting it all out!
Mr. Monster is also very bad at keeping secrets! I’m surprised he’s been able to keep this one for so long! But I can tell that during those quiet moments that he just sits and has this look on his face… just the way he looks at me… It’s like he’s content. LOL.
As for my sisters’ slip up… I basically walked in on their conversation. They were talking about the ideas Mr. Monster had, and which one they thought was better, more romantic, etc. I walked in at the part where they said, “I can’t wait to see Susie cry when he puts the ring on her finger.” LOL. That’s when everything was confirmed. The night while I slept, and he tried to size my finger, I thought it was just a random circle and he was just trying to size it up for future reference. Sister confirmed what he was actually doing. When I found the envelope from Blue Nile, I actually thought he was buying me another charm for my bracelet. Sister said he bought the ring from BN (so financial statement has to be for that!! XD This whole fiasco makes me love him even more… 🙂
