  • Wedding: July 2018

I’m starting to get a little detective-happy with my waiting game.  Last night I was writing in my journal about it (because that’s how I keep myself from talking about it constantly with my SO, friends, family) and realized it will probably happen before mid-July.  

For one, it’ll definitely happen this summer, due to other conversations we’ve had.  He has my ring size (we went to the jeweler’s together) and Pinterest board.  He asked my parents two weeks ago.   But then the following occurred:

I need to move in with him for a month this summer because my lease is ending earlier than my next lease starts.  We saw a self-help book and were making fun of it, I think it was called “How to move in with your boyfriend and not break up with him.”  We were talking about how we were moving in together in mid-July and he says something like “How to move in with your fiancée….”  I pointed out the word slip and he just grinned at me.

Then, my mom texted me and said she’s going camping this weekend and won’t have service but if anything happens, wink wink nudge nudge ring emoji, I better tell her before I post it on social media.  

The SO and I are going on a trip to a nearby big city with his parents this weekend.

Furthermore, my parents are coming to visit me at the end of July, and they told me to invite his parents too.  And then called back a few days later and said, oh, and your grandmother will come too.  Do they know something I don’t know?  

So, that’s what I’ve got.  Maybe it’ll happen this weekend on our trip with his parents, but I doubt it.  Maybe it’ll happen before July 15 when we move in together — he tried to convince me to go to hiking in the Rockies with him on a weekend in July and I couldn’t work that out financially, and he was bemoaning the fact that he didn’t have enough days off to do something ‘really special’ this summer.  But we’ll still presumably do something together that weekend.  Or maybe it’ll happen at the dinner with our families — though I hope it happens before then!

Okay I am now 99.5% sure that it is happening next weekend!!! It’s technically June, so it doesn’t apply to this specific topic, but eep! 

 

My SO took me shopping today to buy a cocktail dress for the dinner we are going to. He told me we are going to dinner at 6:30, but leaving to go somewhere else at 10:30am that I’m not allowed to know any more details about. He said I won’t even know where I am when I get there, because he will be blindfolding me. He has been EXTREMELY tight lipped on any other details. If I ask any questions, he says “I have planned everything, don’t worry at all”. Why does a week feel so far away!

Okay, so it just dawned on me that today might be the day! EEP! His mom is coming from Virginia for dinner and he has told me to meet him on the pier by our house…which we call “our spot.” I could be setting myself up for total disappointment, but it just all feels so amazingly fishy!!

I can’t tell if my SO is trying to throw me off, but he keeps saying I have to wait and it’s not now, but soon. UGH.

lavenderlady:  Well I asked today if he thought it would be before or after my parents visited in late July and he said “well, that depends on a couple of things…” then said, “fuck, I shouldn’t say any of this.  Probably after.”  So, maybe he’s trying to throw me off, but I’m going to assume he isn’t and go with it happening in August.  I’m actually really glad I asked because I was getting way too obsessed with waiting for it and thinking about it.  Now I can just lie back and enjoy our relationship as it is without constantly anticipating a proposal.  If it happens sooner, I guess I’ll just be pleasantly surprised.

lagavulin:  ah I can relate to this! I was obsessing over the idea that my SO might propose on our trip to France in June (next week!) but he flat out told me it would be September. I feel so much more at ease now, and I think I’ll be able to enjoy France a lot more because I can put it out of my mind. That’s a particularly good thing as it happens, because the air traffic controller strikes might mean we can’t even go..!

blah this “any day now” thing actually stinks. I am totally questioning next week now. My SO told me that next week isn’t the proposal, and he is just planning something special because we haven’t done anything nice in a while and I deserve it for being a wonderful girlfriend. He has literally never been so secretive or planned something like this, so it’s hard to think it’s not the proposal. But now i’m thinking I was wrong.

SO got the drawings back from the jeweller this week for my E-ring! He didn’t want to show me, but when telling me the measurements I realised the setting was too high (I wear gloves everyday) so he showed me the basket design to see where it could go lower. And oh my gosh it is stunning! I had picked three style for him to chose from and it looks like he went for a mixture of two of them and it is perfect! A little sad the suprise is ruined, but now I’m even more excited and impatient to get it and call my amazing man Fiance. I’ll be joining the June thread and keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed!

I really hope it’s just throwing all of us off!  It’d be lovely to get engaged early enough in the summer to enjoy the engagement before I go abroad.

I brainstormed about what he might mean by “depends on a few things,” and I think it’s to do with where we go on trips during his weekends off this summer.  I’m sure he wants to propose somewhere exciting.  So maybe it would have been Denver if we’d gotten tickets for June, but I decided it was too expensive.  Starting to regret thinking that now…it’d be great to get engaged on top of a mountain!

I thought he was going to propose this weekend for a brief second. We were with his parents and he pulled me aside and suggested we go for a walk through Grant Park.  I thought, whoa, is this it? I thought for sure he didn’t have the ring yet, and it’d be August… But then his parents joined the conversation and we decided to check out the hotel rooftop bar instead.  It was probably nothing, but my heart definitely skipped a beat, there!

Mushface, has the something-special happened yet?

lagavulin:  The something special is this coming Saturday! I feel like this HAS to be it. He took off of work and we are boarding the dog because it is “an all day event”. We went to buy a brand new outfit because the restaurant we are going to has a dress code. He told me I have to be blindfolded on our way out in the morning so I am completely surprised. But today he flat out said “I am not proposing this weekend!” and keeps saying it will still be July like we had previously anticipated. I am usually REALLY good at calling his bluff, but he is making me second guess my intuition! I’m trying not to get my hopes up in case this isn’t it, but I feel like all signs point to yes!

mushface:  Sounds promising indeed! Regardless, just enjoy the lead up to Saturday and then enjoy the moment of just being with him then. 

All the best and keep us updated!
