The ring should be here the week of the 13th and then it’ll be sometime between then and Thanksgiving! I just want to sleep this week away!

sparklez11909 :  I’m getting a Moissy too. I’m definitely worried about the warmness but I don’t know if I’d be able to give it back to him once I decide that it’s fine! It’s silly but I’m totally nervous about the proposal, too

  • Wedding: September 2018

It wasn’t this past weekend, so now I don’t know. Which I guess is the point. 

I’m irrationally annoyed right now. We’re basically engaged anyway and I feel like we’re just pretending like we’re not. We have our honeymoon booked, but we’re not engaged which feels really silly. (We were planning a trip next year then decided that it would make a good honeymoon.) So the honeymoon is planned, but I can’t start planning the wedding because I’m not engaged. 

I know I’m getting married before the end of next year, which is the important part, and that makes me much luckier than most of the people here. He’s awesome and I’m not upset at him or anythign like that. But I feel really silly about the way we’re going about this.

impatient1 :  I know how you feel. You just want to start planning the wedding but you don’t feel justified because you haven’t even crossed that first line yet… the engagement! I am in the same position. Hopefully not for much longer though as my BF has been dropping hints for this Friday!

Literally any day now and for you, it could be the same! Try not to let negative feelings ruin the magic & excitement of him trying to find the perfect time! xo

We had to pick out another ring but it’s a better one the we decided on. He hasn’t purchased it yet but i don’t think I will get it until after the new year.

My 30th birthday is early next year. I don’t know why i have this feeling that he will do it then. I wasn’t expecting a proposal this year. I’m just going to have to suck it up until then.

I know I should be happy that it’s coming.. but my situation was that he had started working with this designer like at least from September. She finally found a diamond that basically matched what I wanted beginning of October and it took 3 weeks to arrive. He saw it and didn’t think the diamond was sparkly enough (it was a VS2). So, she had to find him another diamond and told him it should take about a week or so.. fast forward, it has been almost 3 weeks again, and it still has not arrived. I’m frustrated to say the least, but at the same time, I feel irrational about it. I know that it’s coming, but I’m someone who would prefer you tell me a much longer time frame, or don’t tell me a time frame.. don’t tell me 2 weeks and it ends up being 4. Tell me 4 weeks so that if it comes earlier, then I wouldn’t be anxiously waiting. So now it’s going to take another 2-3 weeks to design and make the ring. I don’t understand the process, but she is a friend of a friend’s and I know this is her side gig. Part of me regrets not asking him to go to another place but sigh, whatever. PS. I have never seen this diamond so I don’t know.. it probably could have been fine with me! Sorry, rant over.

Well he bought the ring! We went and picked it out together, and then the next day he randomly had “to go get gas” so I think he went and bought it.  We’re travelling back near our college where we met for Thanksgiving, and I think he might do it there!

The custom ring is ready for pickup today or tomorrow!! Tomorrow, SO mentioned he’s taking the day off. I’m working tomorrow, then we’ve got a phone call with a planner, then we’re going to a concert with his family. Sunday, we’re visiting the venue, and the day after Thanksgiving, I’m dress shopping with a friend. I hope I have the ring by Thanksgiving so I don’t go ring-less to a bridal shop, but as I told SO earlier, I can just wear my college ring instead. Am anxiously awaiting though! Lotioning up my hands and knitting and netflixing and working out to quell the waiting period!
