So last night I was on the phone with my Boyfriend or Best Friend and we were talking about our upcoming vacation next week to North Carolina. Talking about vacations got me thinking about possibly planning our next one which would be in September for our one year anniversary.
Now, to give some back story, about a month or two ago, Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were at a restaurant just having great conversation like usual. When out of the blue, he asked me if I would like to go somewhere out of town to celebrate our anniversary in September. I was very surprised that he brought it up because I mean, September is still several months away! And if we did go somewhere, it would have to just be a weekend trip only, as neither of us would be able to get the time off so soon after our June trip to North Carolina. So it’s not like we would have to plan months in advance for it. Planning a weekend trip is pretty easy.
Anyway, we kicked around some ideas and then I said something like “Well, we have plenty of time to decide, we can figure it out later what we want to do.” He agreed and we dropped the subject.
Fast forward to last night. I mention our one year anniversary and how it’s coming up in like three months. I started kicking around ideas again, just for fun.
When Boyfriend or Best Friend drops this on me. “Actually, I’ve decided that I will plan everything. And you can’t help in any way or ask any questions about it. It’s a secret. You’re not gonna know ANYTHING about what we’re doing to celebrate our anniversary.”
I was kind of speechless. I said, “Wait, so we’re not planning this together?? What happened? A few months ago, we were talking about planning together and coming up with ideas.”
Boyfriend or Best Friend said, “I know but I changed my mind. I want to surprise you and I’m now in charge of planning what we’ll do. And you can’t ask any more questions about it becuase you will get nothing out of me! Nope. NOTHING!” Then he started chuckling.
I said to him, “You know that you refusing to tell me anything is going to drive me crazy? Can you at least tell me if we’ll be going out of town on a trip or if we’re just staying home??”
And he started laughing again. He said “Nope! You will know NOTHING!” Then he started faking this evil laugh like they do in the movies.
Lol! Anyway. After this conversation, I started thinking. What if he’s planning to propose?! I have no idea. But how do I keep myself from getting my hopes up? I’m afraid that he’ll plan this amazing anniversary date/trip without a proposal but I’ll still be disappointed because part of me was hoping/expecting a ring. How do I stop myself from doing that??
