bulma :  I don’t know how my soon to be sister in law did it, but she had her wedding three months after she got engaged 😳 I hope he doesn’t expect something like that but he’s a butthead and won’t give me any kind of hint for a proposal timeline.

A few weeks ago my boyfriend picked a day in October for us to buy the ring, and this week he decided to move that date up. We are buying a ring. Soon. Three weeks soon. If I thought I was crazy before, I don’t even know how crazy I’ll be waiting for the ring to come in and for him to propose! πŸ™ƒ

bulma :  Oooh, the ring topic.. whenever I hint anything (like, saying something about a ring a friend wears) the conversation goes like:

‘Look at her r-”  

‘None of your business, woman.’

‘But, you -‘

‘I am not listening. I know your taste.’

But he does not! πŸ˜€ He has a horrible taste in picking out jewellry for me! And as he refuses to even ask my mom, my sister, best friend (who’s a goldsmith ffs!) or anybody what I like, this was going to be a mess. We agreed that the proposal should be a surprise at all, so (and I feel so clever cool ) I made an etsy-favorite-list and told him, as soon as he’s interested in buying a ring, he could orientate on those. And OMG he looked at the list immediatly and we talked about rings, stones and he even said what he pictured me with (so he actually thought about a ring! HA!). I was so surprised that he did exactly know what I liked, every other jewellery he ever picked out for me was… ehem. Not so much my taste. Overall he seemed to be partial to the idea of a list I can update whenever I like. 

(And he really really liked my favorite ring, although I’d kill him, if he got me a ring this expensive. But it’s… so… pretty… *MUST STARE AT IT*)

I’m so excited! I’m really sure this is happening as soon as it comes to christmas and our 4-year ann in Feb. I love snow! We had our first kiss in heavy snowfall, I even own snowflake-earrings. And every year, we go to a christmas market in a castle yard, with fire, candles, torches and light everywhere. It’s soooo romantic there. He knows that everytime I’m there I kind of melt away. The snow and all the lights… AAAAH!

Aaaaah. I promised myself I wouldn’t be crazy today – major fail!

I was OK until I checked Facebook while my bf  (sigh 😦) was driving. Of course another engagement status and I yelped.  The couple had been dating for not even 10 months. I just am struggling and he couldn’t understand.  I am ready yet he’s immature so holding it up.


 He apologises for not meeting my expectations but intentions and actions are far removed. My hope for a 2017 wedding us fading fast.

I promised myself to not be crazy (at least to him πŸ€“) the whole time he was away… Oops. Not one, but two engagements and a beautiful beautiful wedding later I may have sent him a text alerting him to such things and letting him know that these things were making me rather envious. Whoops πŸ˜‚ 

On the bright side, his reply was ‘don’t worry and don’t be too sad! Keep trucking along and it’ll happen to you soon 😁’ 

but he’s been saying soon since my original crazy breakdown last October, so πŸ™ˆ I won’t hold my breath.
