A fun post for you all…
As waiting ladies we have all said or done something in the process of waiting that we cringe at or would rather forget. I’m going to list a few of mine. List me yours, there’s no judgement here!….
1) Metaphoically speaking- When (trying) to explain how I was feeling to my SO about waiting, I likened waiting to “me standing by the door ready to leave for a party and him still getting ready”
and describing my worries that he might miss the timeline set I said “It’s like q-ing for an amazing ride at a theme park and getting to the front of the q after being there for-EVER-er and then being told it’s broken down and you have to wait some more”!
2) I use any silly excuse, like for a resturant/vacation reservation for example, to book it under Mr and Mrs…… I then act innocently suprised when they mention it with an, oh how could they get that wrong look!
3) I’m not overweight but after a big meal or a big week of eating/socialising my stomach pops out. I’m not averst to prending that its our baby bump. (makes me feel better too!)
4) I sometimes slip a non engagement ring on my ring finger and wonder what my real ring will look like.
Ok girls, your turn!

Lol you are funny. Especially with the imaginary bump. When I’ve had a tipple, there’s no stopping my tongue from spitting out some lousy, ill-prepared nonsense about weddings, waiting or rings. My drinking has cut back substantially, as I’d like to grasp my nonsense and keep contained. Though I can conjure no specific example of my silliness, I feel your pain.

@WaitingweddingBE: I do the baby bump too!! J calls it the ‘budha gut’, lol.
Hmmm… Things I’ve done… Well, like OmigoshesGrrrl I too have had moments here I had a few too many and my mouth wouldn’t stop. But my brain is thinking, ‘Shut up, shut UP, SHUT UP!’ It’s like my mouth and brain are two separate entities. Thankfully though, J opens up a lot when he’s had a few as well.
*note to self: buy J’s favorite wine tonight… Muahahahahahahaaaa!*

I’m guilty of number 4, but only when I’m sure he won’t see me… secretly hoping he would.
Also, I feel a need to correct anyone who calls me his wife or he my husband, to let him know it embarasses me that it’s not true.

haha I love this post!!! I have done all of the above (minus the baby bump, too self conscious for that)
Anytime he talks about us needing something new for the kitchen or house, I say we should wait and register for that! =)
Or when I hear ANOTHER friend is engaged I just say “lucky girl!” =)
I will comment about how our wedding will go, I love it when he actually chimes in on this!

It’s not so much a “freak-out”, but there’s a very good chance the proposal will happen when we go on a bf-initiated and bf-planned mini-holiday to a very romantic city in just under two weeks’ time, and I’ve just this second plucked some teeny tiny unnoticable hairs from my left hand fingers (TMI I know! :P) in preparation for eventual ring photo ops! – and that’s even knowing that the actual ering we have both designed and ordered won’t be ready and delivered from the US for at least three weeks/a month! (I know he was looking at stand-in cute rings so it’s still a definite possibility that he will propose before it arrives)
What a nutcase 😀
