My boyfriend of 2 yrs and a half has been waiting since June for me to decide on a ring..and I only decided in October, believe it or not!! Man is it ever hard to find the right ring! So my wait is a little my fault too…I have to admit. Plus I don’t want a Holiday engagement since I want it to be private and romantic..and he feels the same way And..hum..I somehow slipped that getting engaged for Xmas is too cliché..and he might of really read a lot into that lil slip up, since I don’t really care anymore.
We were cuddling last night and he happened to mention that the ring is GORGEOUS and that I’ll absolutely love it!! How cruel is that?? He said he had planned something special, too =) He looked pretty proud of himself.
My parents live 5 hours away so he’s waiting until New Year’s to ask my father for my hand…and then my mom-in-law slipped out that he has something planned for us in January!! And then she winked!! I can’t believe it’s going to really happen!
I’m so relieved!! And I can now enjoy the holidays…
I’ve been lurking on the boards for a while and I totally know how everyone feels…and I really hope he does propose in Jan.!! I can’t stand the wait anymore!!! I want to be his wife
Good luck to all of you — I’m sure a lot of you will have holiday proposals!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you…as long as you keep yours crossed for me too! =)

Aww this is a really cute story. I think if I had to choose I’ll also chose a January proposal. Puts less pressure on the holidays plus you get something to look forward to after the holidays.
But its not up to me so….
Oh welcome to the hive btw, and be sure to joing the waiting list, if only to get your name crossed off in a couple weeks!

I’m sure anytime is the perfect time when the love of your life gets on one knee and FINALLY says those 4 words we’ve all been waiting for
@picturemeurs: Thanks for the welcome! As for the timing — I know what you mean! doesn’t it suck to not have any control on when it’s going to happen? I absolutely hate not knowing what’s going on…but I think that’s why he told me about the ring already
@AmyDee: Pics will definitely be here on the board when the time comes!!
@cincity75: Congrats on your engagement!! I envy you! I can’t wait to be in your shoes in January =) Good luck with all of your planning! And I wish you the most beautiful wedding..I’m sure the xmas eve proposal must of made your night even more magical
@Solome: 2 months? Me too! He’s had it for maybe 2 weeks now and it’ll be 2 months in January that he’s had it. I wonder if he sneeks a peek at it once in a while in secret? hihi The wait is killing me..I can’t stop thinking about it!

My boyfriend was WAY obvious about putting a ring on layaway after Christmas this year. He wont admit to it b/c I told him to not tell me even if I ask…but he did it right in front of me! I was just on the other side of the store! So I will be engaged sometime within the next year! I’m SO excited!!! 🙂
