sounds exciting!!

One year after being with my SO my lease was up and I was moving. SO was helping me move. His mom called him and he told her that he was helping me move. SO’s mother asked if we were moving in together,….sadly he had to tell her no.

That’s so exciting and wonderful that your SO’s mum wants to be involved and approves πŸ™‚

After my SO told his mum that he’s ready to start planning to get engaged she spent an entire evening searching for rings that she thought I might like. She’s always been so loving and understanding towards me. It’s such a wonderful feeling.

Yes! My future grandparents in law (is that even a thing?). We had gone to visit on vacation so I could meet my FFIL’s side of the family. The grandparents were missionaries and just truly amazing people. I had known them for about two days when the grandfather pulls my Fiance aside and tell him ” Son, you have to put a ring on that girls finger, she’s one in a million, you need to hurry up before someone else takes her!” (I of course eavesdropped and heard it all, Bees I was so flattered I cried, I was so honored that they thought that of me). My Fiance later on tells me all embarrassed what went on. Then during dinner time, his whole family ganged up on him, it was hilarious! I have never seen my Fiance be so uncomfortable and turn so red lol. It was during that trip that I became a waiting bee officially, so yes, my Fiance family pretty much whole handedly pushed our engagement (not me! I am proud to say I did not pressure… except for my pintrest page, that was out of hand a year before this happened lol)

@qwerty2k1:  It is so amazing to know that they think so well of you that they want you to be a permanent part of their family. That is truly priceless. This is so exciting for you!!! Congrats!

Oh yes…

 

A little over one year into SOs and I’s relationship, he was on vacation with his parents and I was supposed to meet up with them for the weekend (he went the whole week) in Arizona.  SO told me that one night his mom literally took off her engagement ring and tried to give it to him!  I was so flattered!  He of course told her no, that not only were we not ready to get engaged yet but that he wouldn’t take her ring, he’d get something that was all mine.  His mom even went so far as to tell him she’d have it reset for him.  So funny…

 

Then not this past Christmas, but the one before, his mom had me TRY ON said engagement ring.  She has like 4 other rings because of all her anniversary rings.  It was fun, the boys were out playing pool so it was just me and his mom and his sister.  I know she pushed it a little bit with SO that night.

 

Last Christmas was the funniest.  We had both our parents together and his mom really started pushing the topic.  It was a whole uncomfortable afternoon of our families telling us we should get engaged.

 

I had already told him before Christmas that I wanted to be engaged by June and he agreed, so I was trying to get everyone to calm the F down.  Future Mother-In-Law even locked SO and her in a room together and we could hear her basically telling him to grow up and propose.

 

She’s really wonderful though, I’m happy to have her rooting for us!

@qwerty2k1:  We took her to a store we had already looked at to show her a ring I fell in love with. Actually, my SO’s mum, dad AND brother all came with us to see this ring. It was quite funny but also very heart warming that they all wanted to be a part of our special decision πŸ™‚ the whole family is so loving and supportive of our relationship (way more so than my family) it just makes everything so much easier!

I really hope it happens a lot sooner for you than you’re expecting! It’s so exciting!

@qwerty2k1:  LOL. LOVE that your SO’s mom said that!  For what it’s worth, my SO’s mom (and later, his sisters too) said pretty much the same thing to my SO/now FIANCE (Teehee!)…and he popped the question on our four-year anniversary. 

 

Best part was, both his mom and his super proper and well-mannered 83-year old grandma’s response to our engagement was along the lines of “so you finally figured it out, huh?”  

 

Not only was it hilarious in the moment, it felt GREAT to have the back-up from his mom and Grandma. πŸ™‚

@qwerty2k1:  Right!! It opened the conversation, and I didnt prod it! That night he was all cute and adorable…. “soooo that was awkward…. so what do you think about that? would you say yes if I asked, like, sometime soonish? I know I have to talk to your dad first and all, but my family kinda has a point and well you know, I love you…” For that five minute conversation he turned into a shy 5 year olds who has a crush on a classmate.

@qwerty2k1:  haha very cute! I love my SO’s mother too, it’s so nice to hear about people who love their FMIL’s when there are so many horror stories out there!

My SO’s mother loves to talk about her future grandchildren and often shows me the things she’s saved from her sons childhood for her grandchildren, which I think is so lovely. She also recently bought me a beautiful potted plant for my birthday and made sure to point out to everyone the plant was nicknamed ‘mother-in-laws tongue’ haha I loved it! It definitely feels nice to have so much support for our relationship from both families πŸ™‚

Aww you are sooo lucky that your SO’s mother is nice to you. All my future “in-laws” (SO’s mom+stepdad and SO’s dad+stepmom are pretty much trashy-classless-rude-mean-nightmares and I wish there was a tactful way for them to NOT be there for our future wedding, as we know they will do something horrendously offensive haha.

That is seriously so awesome that they’re rooting for you give them a big hug next time you see his family- how nice of them πŸ™‚
