archaeobride:  if it makes you feel any better, I also had a weak moment this morning and was in the drawer basically like… 

 

It’s SO pretty, sigh. Now I’m twice as impatient, haha. Also twice as excited to actually get to wear it (it’s totally perfect! He did so well!) and call myself engaged, so there’s that for an upside. 

In sum, if it makes us awful people, we’ll have to be awful people together. 😉 And really, if they didn’t want us to find the rings, they would have hidden them better (my bf left the drawer it’s in hanging open this am, for goodness sake!).

laisa:  Ha! I feel soooo much better now! Thank you! It is always nice knowing you are not alone in your “naughtiness.” I will keep my fingers crossed for you that it happens sooner as opposed to later!

Hello bee’s! 

Congrats to all those recently engaged! Ive been a bit quiet lately as I’ve been putting all my energy into finding a house,and it has paid off! We move next week! Our first house together, completely alone, just the 2 of us! He had told me after our anniversary that he wouldn’t propose while we were still living with his parents,so now he has no reason not to! Fingers crossed it is soon.

i think he has the ring.. Our housewarming party is today, and he told me to make sure my nails looked nice. So it could be as early as today!

if not today, my birthday is on Tuesday. And if not then, we are going away the first weekend in May.

i am honestly crawling out of my skin with excitement!

Well, I am fairly certain it was going to happen last night. Before we left, his 10 year old daughter said “Ok, give me a hug. Oh, and tell me what happens!” Then she gave me a big smile and a thumbs up. Then, after we were already in the car, he kept forgetting things and had to run back into the house twice! He was obviously nervous, but in a cute way. There were also at least half a dozen perfect opportunities for him to do it. For instance, we went to a play at the small community theatre and they were doing “red carpet” photos. How perfect would that have been?!? It wasn’t a massive crowd or anything and there would have been someone already taking pictures! We really enjoyed the play, and afterwards I asked “what did you feel like doing now?” I thought he was going to suggest we go for a walk or go somewhere else, and he just said “I thought we were just going to go home?”

I am pretty sure if he was just going to do it at home he could have just done it Thursday night when I got there. I already told him that I didn’t need a big fancy proposal. I told him I would be happy if he did it at the airport as soon as I got off the plane! We ended up going to the dive bar next to the theatre and had a good time, but no proposal. When we got home he went to bed and immediately fell asleep. Also, the box that contained the ring box is now on top of his desk and it is empty, so I am pretty sure he had the ring with him last night. Either he chickened out or changed his mind (not about marrying me, I know that isn’t the issue, but about actually proposing that night). I already stressed to him that I would love it if a proposal happened as soon as I arrived so we could spend as much time together in person as a newly engaged couple, and now it is the day before I leave. Ugh! If he does end up asking me tonight I will still be super elated, but I am kind of annoyed right now! I hope I didn’t jinx myself by peaking at the ring (and prancing around the bedroom while wearing it) yesterday morning while he was at work.

I’m officially in! Some may remember my story/posts but I’ve been waiting on my guy to catch up and be ready for 2 1/2 years now and we’re creeping on 5 years this year. Well, he bought a ring!!!  Not sure how long he’s going to make me wait but I’m hoping its soon.

UPDATE: I am engaged! He was going to do it last night, but ended up doing it this morning. It was a beautiful, sunny day and we went for a walk in the park over looking the river. He told me how much he loved me and how certain he was about wanting to be with me, and proposed! It was very low key, but that was fine with me. I said “Of course!” I am so happy to finally be able to move forward with this next part of our lives!

I will post ring pictures soon! We are watching a movie now 😊.
