I think I’m in the final stretch, too! The diamond is purchased, ring is designed, he’s talked to my parents…nothing holding him back! Going on 4 years. It’s time!
These weekly manicures are getting expensive. Phew!

He flat out told me he’s paying for the ring tomorrow and it has to be sent out for resizing. It’ll be back for pickup on our sons birthday December 8th so could be Christmas or NYE… I have no idea he’s pretty quiet about his plan and the timing but he did say he hopes to propose before the end of the year. I wonder why he ‘hopes’ lol.

I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks now but thought it’s time to join! My SO has basically told me it will happen on 5th December. Bless him, he can’t keep a secret but I’m also partially to blame as he kept dropping hints and I ended up interrogating him…!

He ordered the ring TODAY. He had been worried about finances of buying a ring and then started talking about wanting to get me a laptop for Christmas. Then he stopped and was like “wait…if I can buy you a laptop I can sure as heck get an engagement ring” and ordered the one we picked out right away. It should be here first week of Dec so….we shall see!!!!

- Wedding: September 2016 - Hunting Hill Mansion
I’m trying not to get my hopes up for Christmas because I was told “January” BUT — if I could choose my proposal — I would love for it to happen during our annual Longwood Gardens trip around Christmas time. It’s just so beautiful there!!
I would be beyond thrilled for it to happen a little early but I don’t want to think of it as even close to a possibility to avoid any disappointment. So I keep saying to myself: “January, January, January!!”
I haven’t come across any clues yet, but I know that I won’t be getting my permanent ring for my proposal, as we still have a ways to go in saving up for it. I am excited to see what my gemstone stand-in will look like because that will be a total surprise! 🙂

Last night we were at his Dad’s Birthday party, he was across the room and I mouthed “I love you” to him, and he mouthed back “I love you too”. We do this thing where we go “Proooovveee it” and the other usually just laughs it off or sweeps in for a kiss. Last night I mouthed “provveee it” and he mouthed back “Give me a few weeks!” It took all I could to not start squealing right there haha. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him!

My SO has been acting very strange lately. One of our friends brought up a party on the 13th that they are having and he gave me a funny look and said “we’ll check our calendar and let you know!” The party is located in another city from where we are.
Later in the car he was like “are you ready to go all the way to the party?” all I said was “I think we are free.” He seemed to dwell on this date a few times later that evening so I feel like something is up…hmmmm

My SO got the ring a couple of weeks ago and we are going on holidays over Christmas to his hometown… I’m quite sure it will happen on the trip, but it’s so hard to keep quiet about it! Especially when he brings up wedding stuff…argh!

Didn’t know where to post this exactly and I don’t want to start a thread so whatever!
I was talking with SO last night about some jewelry I plan on setting for myself next year and blathering on about it. At a certain point he brought up the engagement ring and said
“It’s a little nerve-racking, I worry about if I’ll get it right.” (Speaking in reference to designing it on his own with only Pinterest pictures to use.)
To which I replied
“Don’t worry about it! I’m sure it will be beautiful. You have a good eye for style. (Pause) Besides, if it’s really terrible I’ll just tell you no and throw the ring on the ground.”
I think I found my joke a little funnier than he did. Lol. He made a nervous sigh and I assured him I was just playing with him. I just thought it was so sweet he takes it seriously and cares about it being awesome. He’s been acting a bit more nervous than usual, however that could also just be the holidays too, since he doesn’t care for the busyness of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Now hopefully I’ll be able to wear the ring sometime in thenext five and a half weeks!
