- Wedding: October 2013
A branch off the lack of a Christmas proposal thread I started last week, I thought a full blown ventfest would be needed at this point.
Even though I didn’t get a proposal over the holiday season as I was hoping, I have more progress to report. Boyfriend (of almost 4 years) woke me up this morning at 9:30 (after knowing I hadn’t gone to sleep until about 5:30 since I work late) because he was so excited to give me a surprise. Apparently he couldn’t wait for me to wake up on my own. His impatience is cute though, and his surprise was amazing, he bought me a laptop. (Obviously a ring would have been my #1 pick, but I digress…) After being overly “lovey” and cute all day, he told me tonight in front of 2 of his best friends that 2012 will be the year that we get engaged. Of course I had to push his buttons a little bit and say how he would probably wait until this time next year and he laughed, but then he assured me it wouldn’t be quite that long. He also promised to take me ring browsing beforehand so I can pick out a selection from which to choose so as to be sure I’m going to love the ring.
So yes, not quite what I had in mind as compared to about a month ago or so, but very exciting nonetheless. If all goes according to plan, 2012 will be the year I become engaged, and 2013 will be the year we get married. 🙂
Anyone else need to vent? Have any promising news?
