  • Wedding: October 2019

We got the ring. I got a sneak of it (and a few photos, heh!), and ahhh! I am beyond excited and anxious! We are leaving for vacation Tuesday, and we have 3 days before my family arrives! My birthday is also Oct 1, but I keep going back and forth on whether he will find it selfish to propose while on a family vacation! He is also very shy and doesn’t love attention. But I can’t wait for the day he officially asks! 

Honestly, I wouldn’t care if he asked while we were just sitting in the car or something! I am just so anxious (and excited!)

  • Wedding: September 2019

Okay..so..he and my best friend are currently talking about plans for a proposal! I told them to not even talk to me about anything. Not timeline, not nothing. Before I did that though he told me that it will be in the next 3 months. 

Also, I went to the mall to visit the ring we picked out together and get sized. I also put the ring on and took pictures of it on my hand! Now I can sneak a peek at it whenever I want and not drive him nuts hahaha.

Happy waiting bees!

It’s close enough to October/November, right?! I Finished grad school, passed my boards, and got a job in the past 4 months. I thought it was coming over the summer but I’ve had him include me on the very basics of his plan (two month time frame, he’s been back to the jeweler) because after 9 years (4 waiting) I just can’t handle the secrecy. It should be happening before Thanksgiving!

becks90 :  My most recent update is that this Saturday we went to a place a couple of hours away to design my ring, picked out the diamond and ordered the setting and today I have literally just ordered his engagement ring, because we decided we wanted him to have one. I have no idea when he will ask. The ring will take about 4 weeks. He is either going to be so excited it happens straight away after he has it or he will wait until nearer Xmas time to keep me hanging on as a “surprise” which is stupid as we have agreed to get married and ordered the rings together but he may want it to make more impact.

When we initially started talking about a timeline for getting engaged, my boyfriend said before this year ends. While I hope it’ll be in the next few months, we have had some unexpected financial things come up and that took a toll on my ring fund, so I’m not going to be shocked if it ends up being the beginning of next year :/

The proposal is definitely coming soon, hopefully! We talked about having a September 2018 wedding, and SO discussed his preference for a short engagement. I know he’s been looking at jewelry artists online, and we’ve talked about the styles of ring I’d like…still not sure when it’ll happen. Either way, I’m excited and thankful for this new evolving season of life!

We talked about rings yesterday. He told me how important it is to him that he pay cash for my ring because since we plan to combine our finances he doesn’t want me paying for my ring. That’s cool with me. I would’ve taken it as a sign that he’s putting it off if I wasnt positive that this is what he wants (plus he makes good money, is great with budgeting, and has a good savings lol) he told me that he absolutely does not want me to spend a lot on a ring for him and we looked at things he might like. I’m getting excited because he loves the holidays and I’m sure that I won’t have to wait past New Year’s Day.

He asked his Mum to look out for opal rings that I might like! <3 (They are very close and she is amazing!)

becks90 :  Oh I will! I’m so excited. 🙂 It probably won’t be for a few months still, but it feels so much closer than it did, now!
