After nearly a year and a half of waiting I can now say with confidence that all of the waiting was worth it!
He proposed on our Disney vacation, after eating dinner at an amazing restaraunt. I had been crossing my fingers for the proposal to happen on that day, and could have even accurately predicted when we would be engaged within a few hours. Even knowing that it came as a total shock! I was having such a good time all day and he had been so relaxed that I had pushed engagement out of my mind. He had even added a few fake tip-offs throughout the day to try to throw me off (almost not dressing up for dinner, not proposing at the first photographer we ran into, etc.).
Bees, he did everything perfectly. My emerald cut ring from Blue Nile is everything I hoped it would be, he said my full name, and even did it in front of a photographer! I was so shocked that he had to remind me to actually put my ring on after he gave it to me, I just kept holding it and staring at it. 🙂
The whole trip was magical and I actually teared up on the last day, it was so hard to go home after such a perfect trip.
Thank you ladies for helping me so much during my waiting. Some days it was so hard and it felt like this impossible burden, but knowing that there were others out there like me made things so much easier. Like I said, the wait is worth it! 😀

@Audrey2: Thank you! I’ve been on the list since last January, I’m excited I get to bump so many girls up. 🙂
Thanks everybody! The kicker to me was that my FI told me that if he hadn’t been waiting for this specific vacation he would have proposed 8-10 MONTHS ago! He said that waiting was really hard for him too, because so many times he wanted to explain it to me but couldn’t.
