LOL agreed – my mom would like to be here as well, I bet.  She keeps making comments about us getting married…I’m like, “Talk to SO, mom!  I’m already on board.”

My mother would. not. shut. up. about us getting engaged (we knew it was close, but weren’t sure when). It came down to the week that we were almost certain he was proposing during, and unbeknownst to me until I came in the house with a ring on, she had bought balloons and champagne to celebrate.

My mom the other day-“I thought bf would come walk with us on the beach at the family reunion to talk about marrying you.”

“O_o? uh. He probably thought you’d drown him, chill out.”

@aithinne:  Yikes, I’d say you definitely win!

My mom is angsty too. She has all kinda of plans and what not, she’s a frugal lady and she’s always telling me how we’ll do it on the cheap, potluck style, etc. I’m her only daughter so I can see how this waiting thing is an exciting time for her

@SarahTee,  @kandykane1,  @Laurenplusalex,  @Tatertot2003: !

Maybe we need a waiting Mom list ๐Ÿ˜‰

My DAD was actually the one waiting for us to “hurry up and get engaged” and said I was “getting long in the tooth” before we were engaged… And I got engaged at 22 (DH was 27).

haha, that’s so funny!

my mom was ready for me to be engaged before i was too! my husband and i had just started to talk about marriage (there was no timeline or anything, but he had given me a promise ring and it was just a “one day…” type of thing) and my mom started bringing home wedding magazines and making plans. i kept telling her that a proposal was still a few years away, but she didn’t believe we’d be able to wait that long. mom’s intuition was right- we picked out rings a few months later and not too long after that, he popped the question, haha.

@Tatertot2003:  Yeah my mom was like, “Are you going to be engaged before you move to AZ?”  She asked this the day after he left to set up the house.  No, mom.  I will not be getting engaged via skype. LOL

Moms, right?

My mom is kind of the opposite. Whenever anyone asks when I’m getting married she’s quick to reply that I have to finish school first (grad school, 3 years from now!). While SO and I go back and forth on the timeline, it irks me that she’s so quick with her own timeline for us.

I can totally commiserate. I’ve had fighting and drama because my mom has been pressuring me (us) to get engaged forever. We’re not even engaged yet and she’s been bugging me to book a venue because it may take up to a yr to get an available date. Geez, what’s the rush??? FYI I’m 31.

You girls are making me laugh! I think my mom definitely should be on the waiting list too! She brings it up all the time during our phone calls. “Oh, was he shopping for a ring? No? It’s almost been four years, I don’t know what the wait is.”


Goodness. You may be on to something here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My mom keeps calling my Boyfriend or Best Friend my husband even though we aren’t close to getting engaged. She keeps telling people he’s her son-in-law and keeps telling him she’ll pay for the wedding if he’ll just propose. I think she’s trying to get rid of me. ๐Ÿ™‚
