Although I’m already married my husband surprised me with my dream setting. He bought the rose gold white gold version on accident (I wanted yellow gold white gold) and while I really liked the rose gold version I wore it for a few days and it wasn’t me. That and my stone didn’t look quite right in it (the halo had really white diamonds and made my center look dark in comparision). So I had it sent out to be reset in the yellow and white gold version (which has yellow diamonds, so my stone will look better) and I’ve been anxiously waiting for it to return for the last two weeks! I’m crossing my fingers it comes today!

@ohhbitty:  It takes a special women to be a military wife. My hat is off to you!

There are now words to how crazy I am right now!!!!! Im happy other people are in the same boat we leave on vacation in 5 weeks and Im 95% sure he is proposing. I also think the ring is in my house but he is crafty because I have no clue where it could be! We did a little online and window shopping so he could get a since of what I like but its almost clompletely in his hands! 

I just cant wait to get it any marry the love of my life

@ohhbitty:  B would apply to me because I had no idea he had bought a ring, or was even shopping for one.

not sure if you are trying to imply that because i am not a “military wife/fiance” that I can’t possibly understand what its like to be impatient. Although, being impatient would apply to any woman who has gone shoppping with their soon to be Fiance or any woman who knows there is a ring.

I have a friend that is a military wife, so I know how hard it can be for her. I also work with someone whose son is in the military. So don’t think I don’t understand that our life is a bit more difficult than others.

@ohhbitty:  waited 8.5 years, I was pretty crazy.  If it hadn’t been my birthday present I probably would have gone ape shit.

I thought I was the only one…we agreed to get married in July and started planning shortly afterwards.  Although we both saw it as being engaged, many of my friends and family didn’t think it was “offical” or “real” despite the fact that I have already purchased my dress and put deposits down on the venue, caterer, photographer, and florist.  That is the most hurtful part.  I know he has the ring, I put it on when he’s not around.  I keep telling him that I just want to wear my ring already but he keeps saying that he wants to plan something special and that I won’t ever see it coming.  It’s just frustrating!  DO IT ALREADY!!!

We’re fully into wedding planning and I still don’t have the ring…we’ve picked it out, he knows what to get, but I’m just waiting…WAITING lol  I’m not superficial at all but there is something about just having people look at you and know that you’re getting married soon that is so exciting ๐Ÿ™‚

@ohhbitty:  I waited 6 and a half months and just about lost my mind! But trust me, it’s all worth it ๐Ÿ˜‰ as hard as it is, try and enjoy this time because once the proposal is over, that’s it! and it’s a really special moment.

I suddenly realised the other day that after all those years of imagining and dreaming of being proposed to, I (hopefully!) won’t experience it again! and it was a strange feeling.. each moment is special so try and treasure them all ๐Ÿ™‚

@FutureDrAtkins:  bahaha I just spat my coffee out! I am trying not to go bat shit insane waiting but I am teetering on the brink. I keep trying to tell myself that you don’t get some kind of fog horn warning you “proposal in five minutes enjoy your last few moments of this time” it will pop up and happen and be over before I know it and then the moment is gone forever…I really want to enjoy this time!

I am going insane. He ordered the ring in December. I have no idea what it will be like / where he ordered it /whether it’s ready. My timeline is before my 30th bday in June. He’s just told me he’s away with work for 3 wks up until the day before my bday. He’s told my friend all his plans and she is keeping the secret, all I know is it will be while I am 29!!!! Aargh!! Literally been working out any possible dates it could be!!
