So i know it’s any day, my boyfriend drops a million hints and grins like crazy when he does.

My family has been in on it from the start and my gosh, they are not good at keeping secrets, and my best friend spilled that he picked up the ring.  I’ve also been congratulated by his extended family about us getting engaged.

Boyfriend suggested super a super fancy restaurant for our anniversary this weekend coming up, I suggested a local steakhouse. He is insisting that I dress up for this dinner. But he also got really excited about us going to the local rennaisance festival for the last weekend and me playing his favorite game, o who knows!

I know I’ve seen the ring, I liked the ring, but I have no idea what kind of ring it could be! I only hope he remembered I like colored stones better than diamonds.

How exciting! Keeping the element of suprise, but you still get to be invoked. I like it. Fingers crossed for you. πŸ™‚

We went out to a fancy dinner about 3 weeks ago and we were talking about how his mother and grandmother never visit him, he always has to go there. I asked what would get them to come to us and we agreed they’d travel for our wedding. 

Cue discussion about us getting married all through dinner, on the way home and once we’d gotten into our pjs. We started planning dates and venues and then I asked him if this meant we were getting engaged. 

He said yes and that we’d better start looking for rings. He also asked if he got a ring too, which I thought was so sweet as he wants something to show his commitment also. 

The rings have been ordered, but we’ve agreed to keep it quiet until we can sort out a ‘formal’ proposal. What the hell do you say to propose to someone you’ve already agreed to marry? Haha.

Inamorata, when we were congratulated by his family member, he admitted it was in the works and I specifically stopped him and told him I wanted the surprise.

And squeeze! That’s so exciting.

 

Bbk8, I will definitely let you bees know!! The next couple weeks are going to be fun if it happens this month or not at least! He had been trying to plan a weekend getaway for us for the last weekend, but I couldn’t get off work.

Involved, not invoked!

I mean I guess he could draw a circle on the floor, chant a bit and you could appear in a puff of smoke, but that might be a bit flashy for a proposal. πŸ˜‰

Any day for me!! Boyfriend mentioned around our anniversary is when he’d like to propose… that’s next week. He also asked me to “get my homework done early next week” which was cute and made me want to strangle him. He has the ring (I’ve seen it!). I mentioned to one of my girlfriends that I wanted to know if he’d propose next week and she said “I can neither confirm nor deny” SO SHE KNOWS STUFF

So much excitement going on here!

I had high hopes of being engaged this month (which was also his original plan), but due to some ring problems that he fessed to me, I fear it’s now going to be more of a November occasion. I’m still holding out some hope that everything can be fixed and he have a plan for this month though. Either way, the proposal is definitely happening within a month, or about 5 weeks!

How I’ll wait and not snoop during this time is another matter haha.

Hi everyone, made an account to join in the fun and hear about how everyone’s October’s go down, now I know I need to start wedding planning!

We chose my ring weeks ago, it’s in the house, but it has been hidden from me awaiting a formal proposal! I know this is going to be before our 8 year anniversary (October 30th) because we are going to tell family and friends on that day. Very strange and exciting knowing that it will become ‘official’ sometime in the next two weeks but I have no idea how or when! I know we are away doing work/family stuff on all the weekends, but maybe a nice low key evening proposal is coming?!

Frustrating to have it pushed back, but it is coming! Hang in there. It will be great when it happens. πŸ™‚

I can totally see how that would be (good) weird – it could be around any corner. Heightened state of emotion for the next couple of weeks. πŸ™‚

Exciting though! How are you planning to tell people on the 30th?
