The last month or so, I’ve really been trying to not focus on getting engaged so much. I’ve made it a point to focus on myself-studying, going on a job interview (and praying like crazy that I get it!!), & hanging out with friends more. In this time, it’s no coincidence that K and I seem to be getting closer and things just seem to be wonderful right now. Last weekend was our annual camping trip and it was amazing. I knew I wasn’t getting a ring or proposal then, but I was ok with that. Well, this past week I flipped by “Say Yes To The Dress”, and made a comment about how I can’t really stand to watch it anymore. To this K says “I don’t get the whole hype about it anyway.” I explain to him that it’s a girl thing and we like to see the different styles of dresses out there, and then he blows me away by saying “Well, you’ll be there soon yourself, so why bother watch other people try on dresses?” Um…what?! I kinda just sat there and continued channel surfing, probably with a look of confusion.
So this brings us to today…the day before our 4 year anniversary. We don’t usually make a big deal out of it, since my birthday is in 3 days. We’ll just usually celebrate the two things together. I just can’t get his comment out of my head today. I don’t want to jump the gun and say he has something up his sleeve for this weekend, but I can’t help but think that we could be getting closer!!! Not to mention the fact that last night at Target he sat in a rocking chair in a nursery set-up and said “Hmm….I could get used to this. When we register for baby stuff, I want the rocking chair.” Really guy….don’t toy with my emotions like this!!!!! Grrr!

Its really nice that he’s talking about wedding stuff! I know it is so easy to let that one comment rule your thoughts. I think it is most likely a step closer to engagement, but don’t drive yourself crazy either. I’ve found that the more I think about those exciting comments, the slower time seems to go. I wonder if he’s noticed that you have been pretty independent lately and he wants to make sure he keeps up with your life and remains a priority. Either way, it sounds like you’ve got a great guy. Good luck with the job and here’s to hoping tomorrow is your day! 🙂

Guys sometimes dont know what to say to our “wedding obsessions” and will make silly comments like that. I definitely woulnd’t worry, especially in your case–it sounds like he has already begun the planning….

Thanks girls! My confusion stems from the fact that I didn’t even think he was anywhere near ready to get engaged, and now he’s making comments about me being “there soon”. Could the tide be turning? haha

Oh I feel you. I just had the “birthday and anniversary in the same week” and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit disappointed. So hard to not go CRAZY!
Good luck on your interview! I’ve got one tomorrow too 🙂 Diamond and “new job” dust to you….
And yes I hope the tide is turning.

Awwww, that’s really cute! I love that he’s dropping random cute comments (hints?)…but I totally understand that it must be driving you nuts, wondering what exactly he means! It does sound like he’s got it on his mind – I’ll be crossing my fingers for you in the next few days. (And happy birthday, by the way!) Just don’t get so fixated that you forget to enjoy the special events and wind up sad if nothing happens. I ruined a vacation that way. 😉
Huge kudos for staying busy and happy – good luck with that job interview!
