It does sound promising, but at the same time you just never know with boys.  They are tricky things!! And even if you have talked to them, sometimes they dont know just how much we think of proposals every time they do this to us.  Hopefully that IS what the surprise will be, otherwise I know it will hurt, and I honestly dont think they know how bad that hurts. But just remember to have fun, enjoy the moment, and love the fact that you have a caring boyfriend who is trying to please you with fun surprises! He will make a great husband one day! He is yours and even if the ring doesnt come right now, the boy is still there πŸ™‚

@BlueRidgeMere: “How do you calm ‘er down?”

Uh, I don’t! I can’t! I bug the crap out of him but he never reveals :). I’ve tried to convince myself it won’t happen until 2011 since I know he hasn’t talked to my parents and is still saving. But since he said “within a year.” every bday and holiday and special occaision between now and next August is going to make my head explode. And I’m sure I’ll be trying to hide some unwarranted dissappointment when a surprise turns out not to be a proposal. I mean, a KitchenAid mixer is great, but my thought would be, that’s something you put on a registry!

@BlueRidgeMere: that sounds so promising! Sounds like the combination of good communication, Mr Bee’s plan, and e-chicken is working πŸ˜‰

I hope it’s this weekend. I know it’s hard not to get your hopes up. And guys are tricky. I hope mine is up to something too, but he’s revealed NOTHING. And it didn’t help that we’re going to “beach town” this weekend, he’ll be meeting one of my good friends for dinner one of the nights. And she said “Oh I’ll just DIE if he proposes to you on your trip to beach town!”. *sigh* I know she’s excited, but it’s SO HARD not to get your hopes up! I tried to explain that I have no reason to believe he’s even close to proposing.

But it sounds like your guy may be closer than you think!

Maybe he’s a ninja. Maybe he’s just surprising you with something else.  Either way, it sounds like he’s doing something very sweet and you have a lot to look forward to.

Good Luck! I had no idea when my Fiance asked my parents and I didn’t think he could be extra sneaky either but he was!

It sounds VERY promising. Just remember this: Whatever it ends up being, even if it’s not a proposal, he spent time planning something very special for you and that whatever it is should be appreciated just the same. That helped me try to keep disapointment at bay once or twice!

Good luck! he sounds so sweet! I really hope this is it for you, but don’t get your hopes up, just in case, and then it will be an even better suprise if it does happen.

What ever it is, just remember you have a great guy who wants to marry you some day!

Okay, my mother taught me something very, very valuable. “The only gifts acceptable from a man are diamonds, gold, and precious gems.” In other words, you buy me a kitchenaid mixer and I’ma throw it at your face. My friend Anna says it more eloquently as “if it plugs in it’s not a present and it better not be given on an important day.” All of that just meaning that if he’s buying you kitchen items they should def. not be considered a ‘gift’ and if he knows what’s good for him, he’ll provide sparkly, shiny presents. So, if you really want a new ipod, either get it yourself or ask him to give it to you as a non-present, non-surprise. Otherwise, instill my mother’s wisdom.

LOL @ making your own homemade porno or sex tape…..I really hope that’s not your big surprise!  I’m so excited for you, and I hope you get what you’re wanting, but whatever the surprise turns out to be your bf sounds adorable!  Good luck, and I can’t wait to hear how it all goes down (lol, bad choice of words perhaps).

I hope it’s a wonderful surprise, whatever it ends up being. Those certainly are mysterious hints . . . and none of the possibilities that come to my mind are all that clean either. Porno ideed. Tee hee.

I agree with the KitchenAid comments. If it plugs in, it’s not a good present for an important occassion. The only time I ever thought my boyfriend was proposing to me was my most recent birthday. He sat me down in a chair in front of his family, told me to close my eyes, and I heard him leave the room. My heart was pounding so hard I thought everyone could hear it because I knew it HAD to be an engagement ring.

Lo and behold, I felt a hugely heavy box being placed in my lap. Yeah, no ring. It was an electric miter saw I had been obsessing over at Home Depot. Granted, I REALLY wanted that saw, but it was a real letdown. He still doesn’t know what made me so grumpy.
