Most of you know my background, but just real quick: I have a promise ring on my finger, but call my SO my fiance, we both agreed to it. However, he wants to formally propose with a nicer ring (I was more than okay with this. . .)
Anyhow. . .my SO and I went out for dinner and dessert and he told me, “If you don’t mention anything about weddings, I’ll propose in about a month.” I told him that’s utter silliness, that he’ll tell me he “changed his mind” etc., etc. He said, “If I said it, I will do it.”
Sooo. . .one month!? O_O Uhm. He has really bad sense of time, however. He think he did laundry 3 days ago when it was weeks ago. LOL! I wonder if he’ll remember. . .or if he has the ring already. . .
On top of all of this excitement, his parents offered to pay for the entire wedding. Uhh. . .wow! I was saving up so we could afford a nice wedding, but I’m going to work, school, etc. and have been too busy to really make arrangements or think about it.

@CupcakeLove: I talk about marriage often because he’s the one who drug me out to California to be with him. I have a wonderful job and all, but marriage would make me feel more complete, ya know? Sometimes I get really upset and frustrated with him that he hasn’t done it yet so sometimes our wedding talk isn’t productive.
And like I said, his sense of time is horrific. He told me if I don’t talk about marriage for an entire month he’ll propose because he thinks I talk about it every other day. I probably discuss it once every few weeks, and sometimes its his mother that brings it up to me, not me! So, he thinks he hears it more often than he does. I work and am very busy, marriage isn’t on my mind every other day to begin with! Sometimes I don’t think about it for the longest time!
But I do like talking about it. 😛 So when I want to, I go to his mom cause she’s just as excited!

@cali_cat: You have NO idea! Right now I’m busting my butt and working O.T. to get the things we want. . .wedding included plus about to go back to school. That really takes a load off of my shoulders. I really can’t believe they offered!

@katiebeary: Wow!! thats amazing, you really have something to look forward to!!! Make sure you don’t mention it, don’t even talk to his mom about it. We’re very similar in the fact that our FMIL’s are almost more excited as we are! The only diff is I have no timeline and my wedding wont be paid for…haha Count your blessings chicka!!

@Sminthy: I haven’t mentioned it to anyone other than you girls! I’m afriad his mother would blab to my SO about it lol. . .
I didn’t have a timeline for a very long time. I felt frustrated and hurt because I moved out of state for him! And to find better job opportunities, of course. 😛 I was saving, “knowing” that I would have to pay for my entire wedding by myself (or nearly so. . .) and I guess perhaps his parents knew that it would take me a long time to save so much money because their son has other priorities for us money-wise. . .so they offered?! Not sure. But that was beyond generous of them.
