So, SO bought the ring, and is hopefully picking it up this weekend… AAAAH 🙂
If you haven’t read my other post (my first post!) you don’t already know that I am the biggest surprise ruiner!!!! Sorry, I just can’t help myself… I don’t like to be kept in the dark, so give me somethinggg!! Haha, that being said, I knew he went shopping & have been given a timeline of “before Christmas.” But even with that, I am going insaneeeeeee!!! It’s like a dog with a treat that is 2 feet away, but it’s not allowed to have it.. YET! Needless to say, I have started a countdown to Christmas starting 2 days ago at 45 days… down to 43.. lol, I am suffering here!!!
And if you haven’t read my other post, you will also not know that SO and I have been together for over 6.5 years(high school sweeties), so it’s been a long time coming!! He knows I hate cliche proposals (no offense, I’m sorry — it’s just not “us”), so it won’t be at a dinner somewhere, my upcoming birthday, or on Christmas.. (so I guess technically I don’t have 43 days lol). But anyways, from him I am expecting something way out of the ordinary. See, SO is extremely creative. He builds things & has become a great woodworker. Someday I’ll post a link to all his beautiful creations.. google won’t turn up the link unfortunately, but I’ll post spme pics! Point being, I expect something crazy from him & cannot wait… It’s driving me insane!! Either way, though, something crazy or something not so crazy, I will be sooooo excited! I seriously hope he doesn’t make me wait 43 more days, though, or I might not make it! I did take the challenge, but I’ve already broken it a few times =( but I am trying my best. It’s only been a few slip ups & I try to end it quickly… Hey, with that treat right in front of me, it’s hard not to!!
Anyone else expecting a proposal by Christmas?? And how is everyone doing on their Christmas challenge??!
Don’t mind the picture sizes.. it was hard to rescale them proportionately lol! That was all entirely hand-carved by my sweetheart.. isn’t he talented?!

Wow, how exciting!! Can’t wait to hear the story when it does happen. Yes, your man it talented. That box is just beatiful!! I’m expecting a proposal by Christmas too but I’m not sure if that wishful thinking on my part. Had the talk with my man a month ago and we are going ring shopping this weekend. That’s when I plan to tell him my timeline in more detail. Hopefully, it all works out. I’ll post something either way on Monday. Not doing the christmas challange but if my SO confirms that a proposal is on the way then I’ll keep my mouth shut. : )

@desertgirl – That’s awesome!! Have you been ring shopping together before? SO & I went in March for our 6-year anniversary and I had such an amazing time looking with him.. it was just another great experience to add to our story 🙂 Have fun & I hope you get an engagement too!!!!!!

That box is amazing! Your future Fiance is very talented!
Looks like you’re in the home stretch before the ring is on your finger! Not too much longer for you hopefully! 🙂
I’m doing alright with my Christmas challenge – although I will be absolutely shocked if there’s an actual proposal any time before the new year. I finally found out the plans for the ring (he’s getting an heirloom ring from his Grandmother – but he doesn’t even have it in his possession yet!) Right now, I am hoping that he will have “the talk” with my parents over Thanksgiving weekend, and that he will get the ring when we go to his familys place for Christmas. We won’t be together for New Years (we’re in a LDR right now) so I am expecting/hoping for a proposal before my birthday which is the end of March.

That box is so cute. Sounds like things are coming together nicely for you and alot of other bees this holiday season.
I’m soooo excited for Christmas but I’m not really expecting anything sparkly ( although that will be a nice surprise). I think I’ll start really being on the look out from New Year’s.
Uhm Christmas challenge. Sigh. I’m doing semi well. A few days ago I saw a girl in the mall taking out pictures of her hand, and I had to rope the poor man into going a little closer to see what her ring looked like. It was very pretty btw.
