Congrats to you engaged bees!! My SO finally said last night that he will stop doing fake proposals with junk around the house since he knows that I don’t want to hear another proposal unless it’s the real thing. Makes me think I’m getting close to the actual proposal since he was having so much fun with that.

So I too think it’s coming! My birthday is this week and Christmas is in two weeks. We’ve both found a beautiful setting as well as a beautiful stone. We also recently had a very interesting conversation when he asked me what I wanted for my birthday to which I sent a emoticon of pizza, beer and an engagement ring and he said he’ll consider my recommendations. Now I’m patiently impatiently waiting without trying to get my hopes up because who knows what will happen. Yikes!!

Congrats to the newly engaged bees!!! 🙂

My boyfriend does this game where he tells me you will be wearing the ring by when X happens… (Meaning he will have already proposed!!!) He told me a while ago that “you will be wearing the ring when we go to X destination summer 2015”, then he told me “you will be wearing the ring on our trip to Paris” (February) yesterday i couldnt resist and asked him if i will be wearing the ring during holidays because we are invited to several parties!! and he said i will be wearing the for holidays but not from the beginning of holidays!! So i guess he is planning to propose sometime between Christmas and New Years!!! I am so so so excited!!!

For us waiting for a proposal within the holidays… not much waiting to do anymore!!! 2 WEEKS till Christmas!!! 🙂 🙂

I’ll join in…pretty new here, but I think my proposal is coming either this weekend or the week of Christmas.

We are going to DC this weekend to visit friends and then we are going to Disney with his family leaving the 20th.  If it doesn’t happen this weekend, I think it will be at Disney the night we are doing dinner by ourselves.  I know he has talked to my dad and I know my mom knows the plans but she won’t tell me anything and it’s driving me nuts.

We’ve talked marriage a lot and even wedding ideas, but he is very quiet on proposal and rings, etc…  I’m pretty sure he has the ring but I wanted no part in picking it (love the idea of it being something he specifically picked for me) so the proposal will also include first look at the ring!

Anyone have any updates? I’d like to hear some good news.

As the year is quickly coming to a close I’m doubting it will happen for me by New Years. SO is pretty bad at hiding things from me and has never been able to surprise me. I haven’t noticed anything different and I still don’t think he’s actually started on the ring reset yet, still trying to pick a setting from what I gather. I’m adjusting my expectations. I gotta admit, since about April/May I haven’t dealt with any sad or negative thoughts about it until today when I was scheduling out our holiday parties and visits the next couple weeks and saw how little free time we have and that the year is almost over. I have a touch of holiday blues about it. I know I need to get over myself.

So someone please, share some good news! I want to know other couples are getting their happy moment!

My boyfriend and I had a painful discussion in September of this year that his promise of asking this year wasn’t going to be kept because of how our year went. We lost his dad and he lost his job and was jobless for almost five months and could barely afford to feed himself and then in September I bought a condo and we moved in together and he told me that with the move and the job loss I shouldn’t be expecting anything, I was disappointed but I know it’s been a super tight money year for both of us.

I’m excited to hear all the holiday proposal stories though! I would have wanted a Christmas Proposal if I could have had one this year!

I’ve kinda lurked here unregistered for a while, so jelly over engagement and wedding stuff but not really close to anything like that myself. But just recently my BF of over four years has been acting a little…off…and I found out by accident from my dad that they have been talking and meeting a LOT without telling me. I know he’s got the ring, and has had it for about three years now but I was the one telling him we weren’t quite ready yet. I told him earlier this year if he could wheedle my dad into giving his blessing he could ask me (mostly a stalling tactic until my SO could finally get around to buying a house) but a few months ago I caught myself feeling antsy.  

This MIGHT be nothing, but he asked me to take off work this coming Thursday so we could go to the neighboring city and visit the zoo, museums, a certain restaurant, all things *I* love and often have to talk him into. He usually leaves planning outings up to me and then he does all the driving, and he never EVER takes off workweek days, so the way he is trying to play it super casual while taking charge is making me suspicious. I hinted a while ago that I really wanted to go see the Christmas lights at the botanical garden since we didn’t make it last year, and that it would be “so romantic”, and he made a point of saying Thursday could be a good day to do it. 

So I don’t knoowww. Being a type-A over-planner and HATING most surprises that I can’t control, I’m having a really hard time not asking him questions, but if this is it, then I don’t want to stress him out anymore than I know he’ll already be stressing. Argh and eek!
