So far, so good – and last night I was telling my SO about the Beagle Rescue video on YouTube and how sweet and adorable I think beagles are. He agreed and said they were the ideal dog πŸ™‚ Then I sighed and said, “it will be a loooooong time before I can get a dog, but I really do want one someday” and he responded that he’s anxious to accomplish a certain career/financial goal that he has this year because it would “fix a lot of things for us”. Of course weddings and beagle puppies immediately popped in my mind but I just kiddingly said, “This year? better hurry, the year’s almost over!” then changed the subject…

Ooh, I’m in! Although I admittedly kind of have my hopes up for a Christmas or New Years engagement…

I’m in. I actually had made a goal of not bringing it up until after our anniversary in January. We hit a rough patch before, and I will feel better about discussing it once we’ve enjoyed this new high in our relationship for awhile.

I’m totally in! I may have to come here to vent every now and then [every day? ha let’s hope not!], but I’m in. I’ll probably still look at wedding stuff/ring porn, but my goal is to not say anything to my SO. 

Now that’s not to say I won’t talk about it with my fellow Bees, my mom, my friends, my coworkers … πŸ™‚

Alright. I’m ready. Let’s do this!

This sounds like a great idea- although I may only finish it cause the SO and I just got into in a few days ago about not having a ring yet. Wait, this challage is ONLY not mentioning it to the guy right? So I can still vent here?  I just might be able to do this πŸ™‚

 

Although, I did just get off the phone with said SO, and now he’s talking about us going to visit his fam for X-mas. First thought the popped in my head was of course ring related. Not that I dont want to see them, but we see them a few times a year as is… and my finger is cold Wink

@MissPine: I think I saw the same beagle video.  And we have a beagle mutt at home already.  I agree they are the ideal dog.  And the video made me really want another one!  Luckily they are based out of LA so I couldn’t go get one right away. Is this it: http://wimp.com/researchdogs/ Since I saw it I really want a girl beagle so we have a “matched set.” Good job changing the subject, it can be really hard.

I had been doing a good job keeping my mouth shut, but he kept on bringing up my waiting for some reason. He wasn’t bringing up getting married, he was bringing up ME waiting for him to propose.  He did it 4 times in the last 2 days and I finally said, “You know, in case you didn’t notice, I’m not the one bringing it up.  You have brought it up the last four times.”  The cool thing was because of this pact, I knew for sure I had not brought it up.  I’m getting so good at this.  I may be able to do it!

I am going to do this too, my SO told me yesterday, that he put a deposit on a ring!!! I will try not to think about it or talk to him about it, I  think I will be spending more time on this site for encouragement, comradery, and venting.

 

: ) Hugs ladies and thanks for all of the encouragement.

 

@MisfitPrincess: I m going to try and not look at ring porn also.

Okay, I lost, just a little over a day in. My brother called and said he got his ‘FI’ a “shut her up ring” – his words not mine. Anyway, it cost a pretty penny. I was telling this to my SO, and he gets this look on his face about the price- I asked what he would feel okay with spending on my ring- and he replys, “I don’t know, 2- maybe 300” 

 

WHAT???? Ya, I kinda lost it. You cant even get a plain plat band for that! (Gold looks horrable on my asain skin tone). I should mention, we are not broke, not just starting out, are doing alright in savings- and hell, just spent like 2 grand new gameing computers/up grades.  I’m gonna just believe he was just trying to throw me off.

Engagement and/or rings haven’t come up in my household in over a week, it is SUCH a relief…  I just completely ignore the jewelry commercials on tv now, he’ll poke fun at them and I end up looking up from what I’m doing and I’m like “huh?” cause I’m not even watching. We went to a party on Saturday with some friends we haven’t seen in a while and THANK GOD no one brought anything up.

I also haven’t looked at any ring porn, although it is starting to get very difficult, lol! I bought myself a pretty cocktail ring on Friday in an attempt to satiate my needs, hehe πŸ˜€

AHh this is going to be hard, but I really need the challenge. My SO and I have had multiple conversations over the last couple of months basically saying that he isn’t ready for engagment until he got a new job and things were more secure. Well….today was the first day of his new job! A very good and better paying job. I can’t help but wonder how long it will be now that this piece of the puzzle is in place. I don’t want to pressure him, so I think keeping quiet about a ring is best. Now I just need to get my friends and coworkers on with this challenge! They are the instigators….always asking when it will happen!
