Today’s my birthday and my boyfriend has been telling me he’s “so excited” to give me my gift for days now. I kept wondering if it was the e-ring that was delivered last week. He asked if we could stay up until midnight last night for him to give them to me. But we’re old fogeys now and couldn’t stay up until then. 😉 So he gave me the gift before we went to sleep. Aaaaaaaand he got me a Michael Kors purse and made me a video! Basically, he took photos of himself in different spots around town with different backgrounds and wrote things like “our first date”, “our first kiss”, “the first time I let you pay for dinner” :), and “our first ‘I love you'”. And he set it to the song “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. My heart just melted. 🙂
So despite all the anxiety that waiting brings, I feel SO good about us and how much we love and care for each other. Plus there’s the added excited of “omg, if he did this for my birthday, what’s he doing for the proposal?!”.
In the next month, we’re throwing our joint birthday party, taking a two week trip to France, and celebrating our anniversary. So excited about all the occasions we have to celebrate!

Awww that is very sweet!! I remeber seeing a proposal with a similar video… it made me tear up for how sweet it is. Things like these makes the waiting worthwhile.

@mojitolady: Aw he’s definitely a keeper! Happy birthday! My SO has always been a great gift-giver, regardless if I’m hoping its a ring or not. Its amazing coming out of a relationship where my ex hardly acknowledged my birthday and “doesn’t do” Christmas gifts. Not that I’m materialistic, but I appreciate the thought that goes in to every gift I get. I’ll be eager to hear your proposal story when you get it! These are nice reminders that being “miserable” while waiting is silly. Its not like they aren’t loving us in the meantime!

Thank you for the birthday wishes! He is pretty awesome and he knows it too. This morning, when I woke up, he sang me the “happy birthday” song in bed. 🙂 In semi-related news, I think I know what ring he bought me because I’ve been stalking the “Recently Purchased” pages of Blue Nile.
