I don’t know about a holiday one, but definitely by the end of January. We will finish picking out our ring tomorrow and then we have to wait for it to come in and for him to decide how/when to do it. So I’d say a post-holiday proposal is coming my way ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope that you see bling in the near future, as well!! Good luck! Let us know!!

Well, I thought I was sure. I thought it would be a christmas proposal, but then my SO spilled the beans that he’s having a couple of upgrades done to my ring and that he’s dropping it off thursday (yesterday) and I made some comment asking how long the upgrades would take and he said he didn’t know. I kind of let my baffled disappointment show and was like “oh so it could take until january” and he said “well i dont think that long” and i said “but you don’t know” and he said “no, i dont” and then got all sad and mopey. When I asked what was wrong he spilled beans again and said “well i was planning on proposing before christmas but I guess I didn’t think about the upgrades possibly taking a long time and now I’m sad.”

so basically I kind of ruined it. So I said “oh, you never know, it might not take long at all, it might only take a day or so, it’ll be ok, i’m sorry for stressing you out. Just ask how long it will take when you bring it in.”

So I said “how long did they say it would take?” and he said “I’m not telling you.” So it’s a huge guessing game at this point. If it takes a couple days I might get a christmas proposal, if it takes weeks then maybe an anniversary one (feb. 4th)…or, he might not base it on how long it takes at all– he may want to change his plans entirely to reinstate the element of surprise? Either way, DRIVING ME INSANE!

So basically the ring we bought is from an estate sale. It has nice accent diamonds for the halo, but the diamonds on the split shank sides are SI-1, SI-2, and I-1’s. No big deal, but he wanted to have all the SI’s and I’s replaced with VS1’s. He ordered the diamonds and they were to arrive yesterday– he dropped off the ring yesterday– anyone know how long it takes a jewelry store to replace diamonds in a ring around the holidays? We talkin’ a day or two? Or weeks? (edit: im not sure i really want anyone to answer this if they really know)

I hope you get your proposal! I’m hoping for a christmas proposal still.

I’m not getting proposed to this holiday season, but I know that my SO will be buying the setting we chose the week after Christmas and will probably be having our stone set early January!!

I’ve been led to believe that a holiday proposal is coming for me – My bf *finally* talked to my parents over Thanksgiving.  My dad saw how much the waiting was killing me and gave me a heads up that it should be coming before the end of the year.

I know my mom took me out to sneakily get me sized (this was about a week and a half ago) and the ring (his grandmothers) is in his hometown where we will be celebrating Christmas.  I don’t know how long it would take to get something sized…and if he really is planning something, he is doing a massively good job at hiding it.  I’ve noticed nothing whatsoever out of the ordinary or suspicious.  He’s said he wants to really surprise me – I have no idea what to expect, but I am trying hard not to get my hopes up too much.  It’s still pretty exciting though!

Knowing he’s talked to my parents, and the ring is being sized is enough for me – at least I know things are moving in the right direction.

I am!  or at least I think I am.  Everything is checked off – he has the ring (since august ๐Ÿ™ ), he talked to my dad, and talked to his mom.  I think he’s just waiting for our annual hockey game on thursday – it was our first date ๐Ÿ˜‰


good luck ladies!

Well, I’m hoping so! He asked my momma and they had a wonderful conversation that he won’t tell me anything about.

We have gone ring shopping and picked out “the one” a couple weeks ago, so we’ll see! I’m betting New Years Eve will be it for me!

He’s told me that I shouldn’t expect it this year, but I’m hoping he’s just trying to throw me off the scent.  I know it’s coming soon, at the very least.  It would definitely make sense.  He’s told me that he’ll probably propose on a special day… but that’s not especially helpful because we have several upcoming special days: Christmas, the eight-year-anniversary of our first official meeting (Dec. 26), New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, our first dating anniversary (and we don’t actually have an anniversary of the second time we started dating, since it just kind of happened), the renaissance festival (every weekend of April and May)…

I’m thinking sometime in the next month is very likely for me! Isn’t it kind of weird to think that you’re actually at this point? Like I’ve spent my whole life with marriage seeming so far off, and if everything goes according to plan, it will be here before I know it!
