hssweethearts2013 :  Yup! My love is picking up my ring on December 11 from the designer, and then he’ll have to get it insured and such before proposing. We’ve agreed that it’ll be sometime between January and June of next year (I don’t want a holiday proposal – it’s just not my style) and he’ll tell me what day he plans on proposing because he knows it’ll drive me nuts otherwise. 

But for now, I’m jsut waiting… and cooking a lot to keep my mind busy! And researching cooking hardware… yeah, I’m really trying to keep myself busy! 

Congrats on your waiting, bee!

I am in the same situation. Back in August we had a serious talk about being engaged before 2016 is up. I know the ring is currently being made at the jewelers as I type and I am super excited and impatient. I have no idea what his plans are. I wish the jeweler would hurry up already haha. 

I originally thought it would be Xmas, but he said something to me that made me think otherwise. (plus I don’t think he would want to get engaged on his birthday). So, I feel it MAY happen before Xmas, assuming he gets the ring soon.

 

Early congrats!!!

hssweethearts2013 :  Thank you!! I did design my ring, with my guy and our amazing designer. Once he talked to me, he understood exactly what I wanted and so it worked out really well.

I love pinterest!! Part of how I deal with waiting and stress is to do a TON of research on whatever we’re doing next/wedding stuff, even though we haven’t made any wedding decisions yet. It’s worked out really well – I found the best place to buy a car, the ring, I’m researching places to live outside of our city, kitchen tools… the list goes on, but the more I look, the more deals I find, lol. SO loves that!

Yes! I’m in the anticipation stage now: I found a receipt for a ring (his fault, he left a mess of things from his pockets on the counter while he was doing laundry one day and I happened to see it, then I buried it back in the paper pile and I’m pretending I have no clue) and then I later found the ring (in our safe, where I assumed it would be if there was one lol). That was in early October, so now that it’s almost December and still nothing I’m in a state of keeping my nails on point and wondering every time we go out if today is the day!

He seems to be in the giddy-can’t-wait-to-pop-the-question stage because he keeps making hints and jokes, and trying to get me to discuss details of potentially having a wedding next year. I just keep shooting back with “honey, I can’t start planning if we aren’t engaged!” But he keeps assuring me that we WILL be married next year!

hssweethearts2013 :  I am in the same boat! SO and I agreed this passed October 2016 to be engaged no later than April 2017. Late October we went to a Jewelrey Store and picked out 2 rings. Well, my snoopy self found the ring box–HE HAS IT laughing I don’t know which ring he got(I didnt open the box, i want to be somewhat surprised). but I. Am. Dying. Sometime between now and April I will have my ring, and this is the hardest thing ive ever had to do, lol! I am just being EXTRA lovey and going above and beyond around the house hoping it will nudge him a bit lmao. Happy Waiting Bee. it’s just around the corner 🙂

Similar situation here. He’s proposing before the end of the year. He had me pick the family ring that I like (I did). I’m guessing that he has it w him now and that he’ll want to propose before we head home for the holidays (once we’re there, we don’t have anymore alone time – traditional sleeping arrangements there til we’re married). So I guess he’ll propose in the next 2.5wks. So soon. Can’t believe it’s the end of the year already.

Same situation for me too! Our anniversary is in January and I know he purchased the ring. I have no idea when it’ll be… I am hoping for our anniversary! Best wishes love. I know it’s hard waiting!
