@Bettyboo1982:  how exciting! 

I actually had a lot of progress this weekend! My SO talked to his parents this week, and everything went great. That was supposed to be as much as we discuss a proposal until it happens, but yesterday he told me about a conversation him and his mom had over text. His mom asked him if he really really loved me, and when he told her that he does very much she said “good enough for me, lets do this” and said that they love me too 🙂 I cried when he told me. Also, Im pretty sure that he is buying a ring this week but I’m not sure which day he’s going!

That sounds promising!! Well I THINK there was progress:

 

 

 

bf got a phone call off a local number (I saw the number) wouldn’t answer it in front of me, and said it was just gonna be PPI or something, they left a voicemail (definagly not PPI then!) and he waited until we weren’t together to listen to It. 

 

Quick search of the number on google said it was the jewellers my ring is in… 

 

Oh and I noticed when I saw his phone again he had convienantly deleted the missed call and the VM…

 

sooooo… I don’t wanna get too carried away but I did have butterfly’s yesterday thinking ‘is this it?! Is it actually coming!!’

@Bettyboo1982:  Yeah it’s getting super exciting! Almost there :). We went to look at rings about 6 months ago, and have been doing research together so he knows what I like. He’s excited to pick it out on his own, though!

@Bettyboo1982:   Lol that has made me laugh, I Have become a Bit of a detective myself- I thought I was going crazy To be honest! 

 

well… Again I could have this all wrong- but he has just randomly come and said to me were not making any plans for this Frida. (Thought this was a bit odd as we’re away over the weekend for our friends birthday so I wouldn’t have made plans for Friday anyway as I’d be packing etc) 

 

fingers crossed!

Mr Tea heard from the guy making my ring! The diamond he originally thought he wanted was used in another piece because he took too long (ahem..) deciding BUT he came back with a diamond the same weight, better clarity and color and same price! YAY!

The setting is made, so just not-so-patiently waiting for it to be finished! Mr Tea won’t hang on to it for long, he’s already getting antsy. So hopefully, next few weeks?!

Guh, weekends kinda suck in this house (specifically Sundays) BF is currently playing his mmo game cause it’s “guild night” and we definitely couldn’t miss that >. >

Okay, I’m not actually as bitter about it as that last sentence would suggest XD but it can be extremely frustrating, and up until recently was the cause of the majority of our issues, hurr.

 

Still, we’ve been very happy and giggly recently, it’s nice 🙂 really looking forward to our little getaway to florence which isless than a month now! (and I know the e word is an impossibility so no pressure).

 

Lots of girls here seem to be taking big steps forward. How exciting! Good luck to all of you 😀

I’m mostly waiting so far as waiting for the proposal I know is happening, but it was a really good weekend.

Last night he told me I was the most amazing girlfriend and will be an even more amazing wife. Right now, he’s discussing with his best friend (who just proposed to his girlfriend) how to propose to me.

So. You know 😀

I of course responded by creating multiple inspiration boards for the wedding I’ve been planning for months already haha.

Not so much progress but SO reiterated how lucky he feels to have me as his girlfriend… he’s not ready yet though 🙁 Friday night I called him Mr Lovely and he replied and you “Mrs…err Miss”…I grinned and he said “Miss for now” in a tone to say “whoa now, hold your horses”…yet he tells me his visions of our future.  Feels like 2 steps forwards and 1 step back at the moment.

Friday SO approved the 3D rendering of the ring!

Originally when we came up with our (new and improved!) timeline, I suggested a specific week that we could get engaged during. It was really good timing because we’d be able to visit our families in person and then be on vacation right after. I also thought SO might want to wait a few weeks after the ring arrives.

But then we were talking about it yesterday because I wanted to know what our story was–are we telling people that we mutually decided on a week to get engaged? And he said that I was the one who picked that, it doesn’t have to be then. I mentioned that it seemed the most practical time, and I figured he wouldn’t want to ask right after getting the ring. He was like “well it seems dumb to wait if I already have the ring.” sooo engagement might happen as soon as the ring comes in, which could be in like 3 weeks!

Wow loads of progress..what I like to see!!! 🙂 

 

this Saturday we went and met our ring designer and picked out some stones! SO has been left to descriptions inscription and the order will be placed in September so we get it in time for Christmas! She said they usually come early….so I’m hoping he proposes earlier than christmas. I’m not even sure where Christmas came from…I think he said it once as a joke but now it’s kinda been agreed haha! 

 

Im sooooooo excited!!!!

@pineapplez17:  I love the deciding on the story bit haha! 

We have the same dilemma….SO doesn’t want people to know I designed the ring…he wants to take all of the credit and people to think he surprised me haha!! I originally worried and said he could pick a ring himself…but he actually just wants everyone to think he designed this awesome ring by himself so people think he’s romantic!! Men!
