- Wedding: September 2014
Hey hive!! So I’m at work for my last day before vacation!! Gahhhhh!! Get me outa here!! So ready to hit the road for Margaritas at the Jersey Shore, museums in DC, and big sandwiches in Pittsburgh!!
Sooooo, I’m tring to not get my hopes up, because that potentially leads to disapointment, but the signs are all there, and I’m having a hard time keeping my cool right now.
A little over a month ago we did some serious ring shopping and SO flat out said “So this is for sure the one you want?” When I confirmed he said “Ok, now let’s not bring the topic up again till it’s on your finger. I want you to be surprised.” It was for sale online, and it was the ONLY ONE. Panic.. So, A few days later I clicked the link to look at it (because I wanted to remind myself how pretty it is!!) and it was SOLD. This thing had been there for MONTHS. I got nosey (/crazy), and looked at the time stamp when it was sold. It was when I was vacationing on Cape May without SO. Hmmmm, sure could be a coincidence I suppose…
We’re taking two short road trip vacations over the next two weeks, annnnd tuesday is my thirtieth birthday (ugh, thirty! noooooooo!!! shakes fist at sky). Every single year before my birthday he asks me to send him a link to my wishlist.com account and ALWAYS uses it to get me a gift. 100% of the time, every time. He also generally asks me where I’d like to go eat for my birthday. This year however, it’s all a big secret. I actually told him a few weeks ago “hey, there’s nothing on my wishlist account right now, do you need me to update it and send you the link?” Nope, apparently he’s “got this”.. hmmm.
We’ve talked a LOT in the past about getting married in September of 2014. As unromantic as it is, mostly this is because we’ll be done paying off one of our cars, and we thought it would be beneficial to start a marriage on a strong financial note. We’ve also talked about being engaged for at least a year to save and plan. That would mean getting engaged this September.
Is this the part where number four on your friendly neighborhood waiting list makes her departure? I feel like all signs point to yes, so I’m trying not to think about it. If it’s a no I don’t want to be disapointed. We’ll see I suppose. will make a post birthday update!!
