My bf told me my gift is our trip to Disney this Christmas/New Years.  It made me think that I’m not getting a ring.  (Disney is pricey!)  Hmm…I’ll go crazy with you!  lol  Anywho, I hope it happens for you.  🙂

I think that if he got a ring, wouldn’t he lie to you? Wouldn’t he set a limit to keep you off track? this would drive me nuts.

I have zero words of wisdom. I’ve become a crazy person the last few weeks. But I’ll go crazy waiting to find out with you!!!

it definitely could be that! that’s exciting 🙂

I have been asking about setting limits too because we are thinking of going to vegas in february, and he hasn’t said anything either, but I don’t think it’s coming for christmas in my case.  i just think he wants a big gift. lol

It’s exciting, but try not to get your hopes up so you can enjoy Christmas no matter what!

Last year my now-fiance did a box in a box in a box in a box… with a ring box inside. I was sweating, breathing heavily and shaking like a leaf!!!  My stomach was in my throat!!!

 

 

It was a ring, alright!  

 

… from Juicy couture.  A big, black, amazing statement ring that I absolutely love and has absolutely nothing to do with engagement.

@KristenGotMarried: omg! Don’t get me wrong, I love Juicy and anything Juicy is an AWESOME gift, but did he HAVE to do the box in a box in a box deal?? I would’ve strangled him!! 😀

@KristenGotMarried: OH MY GOD! I would have CRIED!!! And then would have been excited. An old boyfriend did that to my gram once, back in the 50’s. Her whole family was watching and hoping. She got to the last box. It was a manicure set. LOL.

oooOOOooo @T-Rex:, I would be wondering, too!

@T-Rex: I think a lot of us have been where you are at!  The anticipation is soo nerve racking!  If they only knew!!! I really think they have no idea what that stuff does to a girl.  Wishing you the best of luck and remember- there is New Years shortly after! Sometimes they really love throw you off. Enjoy the holidays : )

@MisfitPrincess:  He was “paying me back” for me doing it to him the year before… but with a NETBOOK.  I used a freaking COMPUTER… did he have to choose a ring box!!!??  I still give him shit about it.

 

I loved/hated the anticipation before we got engaged.  Every big event/trip/date I’d wonder… and wonder… and wonder.  And just when I stopped wondering and didn’t expect it at all, it happened.  Just like everyone says.

@KristenGotMarried:  Something similiar happened to me also.  On our 2 year anniversary he took me back to the same restaurant we met at and I saw a box in his pocket.  I was excited and anxious.  At the end of dinner we exchanged gifts.  He gave me the box and he was quiet… it was from the store that I knew he would get the ring at…. I thought it was weird that he was quiet and I opened it… and it was a………….. necklace…. beautiful necklace… but necklace :/   I thanked him for it, wore it and left it at that.  He really had no clue that I was bummed.  About 6 months later, on a day that I worked, a night I felt rushed and had to get to his house which is not close, he wanted to take me to dinner (another place)… and then to the beach… that night was the proposal!  I think I told him recently how I felt upset the night of the necklace…. he was sooo sorry : )  I told him it wasn’t his fault, it was just tough because I thought it was something else.
