Well now that I found out he has been in contact with the jewelry store he said he doesn’t know how I’m going to be patient for a few months.  So….I guess it’s getting close!  Yay for months ๐Ÿ™‚ Right now I’m just super excited and trying to pinch myself because this cannot be real!

@rawrrrrr:  I’m with you!!! Know its coming and I know it will be this year, but no idea when. Lately I have felt a real calm come over me though…like I just know more and more as each day passes that my man will be my husband, and I will be his wife and we will never leave each other’s side. The wait hasn’t been hard for me lately. If I still don’t have a ring on my finger in six or eight months I may be singing a different tune…but for now I’m good.

I think the wait is coming to an end for me! I’ve been with SO for nearly 6.5 years now and I will be very surprised if he hasn’t proposed before the end of June! But we’ll see! I’m pretty calm about it these days. 

He has the ering, ordered my matching wedding band this week, asked all the days I’m planning to be away soon (for work etc), plus I got into my masters starting in January and I think he wants to be married before then!

@rawrrrrr:  I hear you!  I know the ring was ordered this week (eeeekk!!) and SO knows that I am definitely not good with huge surprises…I’m a classic, type A personality, ultra planner who plans absolutely everything.  He knew I’d probably hit the roof if he proposed without dropping any hints…so he told me to expect a big surprise between April 1 and April 12 ๐Ÿ™‚  That way he can still make it a surprise and I am prepared for whatever he plans on doing!

Boyfriend told me his timeline for engagement would be now through june. Which you’d think would make me happy, but I just feel crazier. haha

I believe it is happening the first weekend of April, as he kind of gave it away.

He gave me a timeline of in the next 50 days (about 45 now). The anticipation would be killing me but finishing school is consuming my life.

@rawrrrrr:  yes!!! I think July. I told him I’m moving to a new place and he said “just don’t get a Year lease… find a month to month”. (I won’t move in until we are engaged.) He also told me we are going to celebrate our 2.5 anniversary in London and it’ll be “life-changing”. Ahhh!!! What could it mean?! Lol my best friend also told me that he knows where hes getting the ring already. 3.5 more months and I can’t wait!!!

We just put the last payment on my e-ring and I know it’s ready to pick up now. Our 6 year anniversary is in June and I just have the feeling he’s going to do it in May. I need to make an engagment advent calendar, haha.

I know its very, very close. Im not sure if its in June during our anniversary or sooner. He is going next week to ask for my hand in marriage from my dad. I’m so nervous I just drop everything lately and can barely stand up! While there in my hometown, im going to start looking at venues though.

I don’t even know if the ring is here! lol I live alone and he works two jobs so im not around him enough to see super obvious signs. 

I just love him so much. I fell asleep on him last night, while we sat in his car, listening to complete silence. I knew how much I loved him when I listened to him snoring and smiled. I used to get mad at my ex for his snoring, but he’s so different. Can’t wait to share my life with him. ๐Ÿ™‚

I know it’s very close.  We’re really just waiting for a ring at this point.  He ordered it in January, then called them late February and they said they got it in but something was wrong with it and it needed to be sent back.  Still don’t have it Frown.  My guess is as soon as he has the ring he will do it.  We had planned on already being engaged by this point.  Waiting for the ring and neither of us having control over it really sucks.

Ooo How exciting!!

I heard Boyfriend or Best Friend say “diamond” to his mom on the phone – I purposely tried not to listen to the convo…but I’m fairly certain he doesn’t have the ring yet. I also heard him talking to his parents and they asked if I was there and he was like “yeah but its fine” so they may have been having some proposal talk…not sure?

I think it’s happening on our 10 yr anniv (mid May)! I wanted it to happen by the end of April but I also wanted the proposal to include family, or have them be there that night to celebrate but they don’t live in state..so we would need to be on a trip or they would need to come here but my parents dont know Boyfriend or Best Friend and I live together…so I doubt Boyfriend or Best Friend would find a way to surprise me that they were visiting. We are flying to the state where our parents live “because he wants to see them once before the summer (we won’t be able to go there again together before sept) and because he “wants to celebrate our anniv with them” we have never celebrated any anniversaries with our family before so it is very suspicious!!

But I’ll be thrilled to have a memony of our anniv be so special (since I would have liked to get married on our ten yr anniversary) so this way the date will be preserved somehow..and I’ll be thrilled to be in our hometown and maybe gush over it/celebrate with friends the next day ๐Ÿ™‚
