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

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!!!

Oh I’ve realized thanks to the Bee that I’m in good company! Hopefully your wait is almost over!
OOOOH can’t wait to see pics! xoxo
It sure does, thank you <3
And looks like your wait is longer than mine, I think I only have about 22 days left hopefully! Unless he prolongs my agony… I’ll hope for a peaceful wait for you and I can’t wait to hear the proposal story!!!
Oh no, I wan’t implying anything about military life, I really meant most of that jokingly about how you were saying how “patient you were..” And DUH! Of course you were patient, you didnt know about the ring! Its a whole different world once you know its real life and there.. lol but no I didnt mean that offensively.. I would never imply that my life is harder than others.. We all have our struggles in life and I would never compare mine to someone elses. <3
Congratulations! I’ll have to go read your engagement story! <3
Oh no. Isn’t that the worst? I go back and forth on whether or not I’m truly engaged or not.. Sometimes S/O and I will make a fiance joke here or there but really we mostly just say boyfriend and girlfriend. Every now and then when he gets territorial he will throw a “DOES HE KNOW YOU’RE ENGAGED?!” out there.. lmao but for the most part its been a total secret. I’m dying to let it all out.. I hope you get your proposal soon.. I’ll be looking for it in the feed. <3

Oh remember when I said I felt like everyone around me was getting engaged this year?
YEP. Best friend got engaged tonight.
Ugh. I’m the worst for feeling how I do. I’m so happy for her but I want my time to shine. 🙁

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 🙂

@ohhbitty: I waited 6 and a half months and just about lost my mind! But trust me, it’s all worth it 😉 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 🙂

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!

Yep I went nuts and tried so hard to focus on everything but the ring but it didn’t work…. I’m okay now though because I got it on Tuesday 🙂

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!!
