Well, the waiting is officially killing me. I’ve been on a diet for the past two weeks, and its helping me with my waiting stress. The ring is officially here. Mr P has been torturing me since he ordered it. (He thinks its funny to see me waiting, and I feel like its just plain torture.) He originally told me Valentines Day, but decided that he’d rather do it on another day (too cliche? I don’t really care what the date is as long as it happens!)
So, I’m down 11lbs on the scale, mostly water weight I’m sure, but still nice, and I’m sure Mr P appreciates it.
Heres hoping to a proposal this weekend. I will now shamelessly share with you my pending beauty 🙂 Sorry the picture is so huge!
Anyone else awaiting an iminent proposal? How are you taking it?

Congrats! The waiting sucks! Right there with ya!!!
my SO has the ring….he doesn’t know I know…
This is his quote from yesterday’s email when we were discussing something stupid, I think he’s trying to throw me off…..He’s already talked to my 10 year old daughter!!!:
“Yeah I know. you want to be at least engaged. It’s still going to take a little while, but like I said it’ll happen.”

@MsBaker that ring is GORGEOUS!!! So beautiful I love it!! So exciting that he’s got the ring!! heres hoping a proposal is right around the corner, like this weekend!! And I need to know your diet secret! That is phenomenal! Congrats on your amazingly dedicated diet skills and upcoming engagement!
As for me, I can’t say I am waiting for an imminent proposal… Well I know one is coming and he says soon, but who knows what that means! Everyone seems to think he’s already started the process of buying a ring, so I hope they are right! Until then I’m just enjoying the last of my waiting days (hopefully!)

- Wedding: March 2014 - Brazil Room
It sounds like our guys have the same sense of humor! Mine has the ring and teases me constantly about it. “Oh I went into the safe today and looked at your ring!” “I told my coworker about how I’m going to propose!” “I marked the proposal date on the calendar but it’s not going to be January or February and no peaking at my calendar!”. He even blindfolded me when the ring came in and had me try it on so he knew that it fit. Then… back in the box it went (that was 3 months ago).
He didn’t want us to start planning our wedding until he proposed, but now he’s started picking groomsmen and asking them without thinking about bridal party numbers and he’s just ahead of himself all over the place.
I’m also dieting! But you’re ahead of me… I’ve only lost 6lbs so far.

I wish I had your patience. Waiting is driving me bonkers! About the diet thing, I’ve been using myfitnesspal (which i’ve done in the past). My heaviest weight is somewhere above 200 (upwards of 220 i suspect… although i never weighed at that weight and only have pictures, and my first step on a scale was 196) I’ve dieted in chunks over the last few years, and I’m down to 142. I try really hard not to eat what I shouldn’t (i’m a baker… not all that easy, ugh) but i’ve had the motivation of looking super hot for the proposal, so thats helped with the willpower. i LOVE to have soup for lunch, and im good in the kitchen so that helps. if you want some soupy ideas, let me know! i’m a wealth of non-yucky tasting good food! (100 cal for a bowl of hearty warm soup… deffffinitely helps!)

That is torture! They do sound very alike. He confirmed my size like 3 times in one week. He told me when he ordered it. Then he told me the day it came in. He told me that he locked it in his filing cabinet at work. Just last night he says “I thought for sure by now you’d start trying to figure out how I’m going to do it.” It’s the one thing in life that they know they can tease us about and we have to put up with it! haha.
Getting ahead of himself isnt a bad thing. That just means he has wedding bells on the brain, and that can only lead to one thing! Proposal! 🙂
And you’re doing great on your diet. I failed to mention that I had the worlds nastiest flu last week, so I ate almost nothing. Not so nice at the time, but great for the scale after the fact!

Oh I am not that patient! I just decided the sooner I stop worrying, the sooner it will come! But it is really killing me not knowing where’s at in the whole thing haha. I have heard of that! Several of my friends said they really liked it! I would LOVE to be 142!! That is amazing, you’ve got to be so proud!! Congratulations, that is such an accomplishment! I’m a home baker myself and the only thing that’s stopping me from eating all these cupcakes is the fact that I will physically get sick haha. Good and bad! You are going to be looking sensationally hot for your proposal!!! Oh soup yes! That is has been my main food lately, I love soup, especially when it’s so cold out! If you feel like sharing your secrets, please PM me! I’m tired of chicken and rice haha. (Wow I use a lot of !!!)

Agh the wait is killing me as well. I don’t know if he’s bought the ring yet, but we’ve already booked the venue and are looking into photographers!! It’s so hard not being able to tell our friends and family the news!
I want to wear my ring! And tell my family/friends!! He says he’s going to propose by June…but I’m like WTH??? I can’t wait that long!! He thinks it needs to be a perfect proposal, but I’d rather it just be spontaneous!

I know he got the ring about a week ago, and he told me that the proposal was going to be no later than Feb 20.
I asked him, “is it going to be ON Feb 20?” he said no. So… no later than Feb 19! Supposedly he has a plan, and already knows exactly how it will happen. Aeeee! We’ve been doing a lot of planning and like others have said, I’m dying to “go public” and really get this show on the road – especially since July 20 is our date!

Meeeee toooooo! He just told me that he’s paid off half the ring last week. And we talked and agreed that he will propose by Fall. I’ve been talking about wedding crap a lot the last couple of days though :X It may be time to join the Shut it Up Pact… UGH lol I just want to be able to talk about this stuff with him and our friends without feeling like a wierdo haha

The last little bit of the wait is the worst part! My SO hasn’t bought the ring yet but there has been some very serious ring talk (styles, sizes, all that jazz) and we’ve already talked basic wedding plans. I know he plans on proposing in the next 2-3 months but I don’t get any more details because he wants a little “magic” in the proposal.
I’ve been good for the most part up until now, but now that I know it’s just around the corner I feel like I can’t stop thinking about it! Sometimes I think we’d all be better off if our guys would just surprise us and skip all this anticipation 😛
