Jaxx sisters can be overrated…I was ranting to my older sister recently about not being engaged yet, and she responded oh so supportively by whining that she wished the diamond in her ering were bigger. *headdesk*

@jaxx317 – i have to agree with hoyalawya about the sisters being overrated. my sister doesn’t want to even hear anything about how much i wish my boyfriend would propose already. she just gets annoyed with me when i bring it up. of course, my sister is 21 and doesn’t really care about getting married, so i understand why it’s not something she wants to talk about.

the majority of my friends are either engaged, married or single and NONE of them understand what i am going through with the waiting thing. they all tell me that it will happen. the problem is that when it happened to them they were with their boyfriends for a short period of time and weren’t expecting it. i understand that they want to see me happy, but it’s just not the same when someone who has what you want is giving you advice about waiting when they didn’t have to.

so today i freaked when i got an email from my friend’s maid of honor asking if we would be ok with one of two dates for my friend’s shower. i had wanted to get married by august of next year. now i don’t see that happening and the fact that my friend’s shower might be one of the two dates that i had wanted to get married on, i’m just frustrated and sad. it’s not like i can say, “oh, i’m getting married on such a date and the shower being on that day wouldn’t work for me.”

iggies: I agree with you. My bf told me that his cousin asked him to be in their wedding next Nov., but we are planning on getting married next summer. It may seem like we are trying to up stage them because we aren’t engaged yet and our hypo wedding is before theirs. I am afraid that people will think that we are just trying to get married before them when we do get engaged because we are a few years older and we have been together for longer. But no one knows that we already have a date in mind because how can you announce that when you aren’t engaged?

I just wish that he would propose before anyone else sets a date that will be close to ours.

Or before someone chooses the date that we want.

Ok Count me in! I don’t think my BF is getting tired of me talking but I think he is getting extra suspicious of me finding out his plans  when I talk about rings and stuff. I know its coming soon so if I stop talking about it it might ease his mind more and allow me to be genuinely suprised!

Hi Ladies, can someone explain to me what the Christmas challange entails… my BF and I have been together for over four years and it seems like I am just waiting forever for him to propose.. I must admit I do bring the subject up alot its just so hard not to. We went and picked out rings last month but still nothing.. I am starting to just get really upset about the whole thing. I hate being on his timeline.

This challenge is my kind of thing.  I know I can do this because after I gave him the “deadline”, I haven’t mentioned engagement since.   He does seem to mention it quite often.  Now… I do talk a lot about the wedding.  LOL!!! 

Me:  So, what do you think about this venue for the Day After Brunch?

Mister:  What is this Day After Brunch for? Thanksgiving or Christmas? 

Me:  (rolling my eyes) Dude, seriously, stop playing with me.

Mister:  (laughing) I haven’t even purchased the ring and you’re already planning the wedding.  So much for a small and intimate affair we were going for.  (more laughter)

So, I guess my challenge is to NOT mention anything wedding related to him until after Christmas.  I’ll just write all my ideas here or on my personal wedding blog.  If I need feedback, I’ll for sure bring it to the Hive.

Im on board for the Valentine Challenge! I know i am driving him nuts will all the wedding talk or ring talk but hey a girls a little excited!!! We have gone ring shopping about a month ago and we do have a March 31st deadline so i know it will be on or before then but i think now that we have agreed on a deadline it makes time go by wayyyy slower then what it did before the deadline. Good Luck Ladies

What if we picked out a ring already?  And this was almost 2 years ago… what then? Still silence? It’s so frustrating!  Which I’m sure alll of you guys understand.

Ugh, suppose I’ll try and hide my frustration til Christmas.  Tis the season and all. Tongue out

honestly i wouldn’t be able to last 5 hours without mentioning some aspect of getting engaged/being married/the wedding to my SO, but honestly he brings it up just as often so I think its fair!
