Okay, so my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were talking last night when all of a sudden he decides that he has to make a drive home to help his parents move their things from their old house to their storage unit while their new house is being built. Welllll….that is all and well, but when I offered to come with him to help make the move easier he outright refused to have me come along which isn’t like him at all. He kept repeating himself saying, “My parents wouldn’t want you to come move their things while you’re still on vacation…la di da di dah….” His home town is about 7 hours away from our school and happens to be located just downtown where his parents are moving, which is close by the jewlery place where we had first looked at rings about 4 months ago.
Then, later on that night I asked him when he would be back and he replied about a week or so, which unlike him is pretty vague. A few minutes later I brought up a possibility of taking a short trip before we begin our last year in grad school (thankyouJesus!) 😉 suggesting that we do something when he returns just for fun. He responded favorably and said we should go camping to a place nearby–which happens to be the perfect place to propose–as I have joked about a while back when we visited about a month or two ago.
Well, as we discussed our camping situation I asked if I should also call a few of our close friends to invite them to join us, however, he immediately said, “No, no, let’s just do this you and me.” Again, hopefully I’m not overanalyzing this, but he and I always love to have our friends around when we go hiking, sightseeing, camping, fishing, drinking, etc… but he seemed pretty sure that he wanted it to be ONLY a trip for us.
So, what I am thinking is that perhaps shortly after this labor day over the weeked Friday or Saturday that he might propose. I’ve never been more certain in my life, but I don’t want to jinx anything either. When he mentioned the camping trip with just us two I kind of smiled and that’s when I thought maybe this is it??!?!?! 🙂

Just a quick update–My Boyfriend or Best Friend is still at home helping his parents and I’m just waiting around bored and anxious…Well, today we spoke on the phone and just made the usual small talk except he admitted to going to the jewlery store! 🙁 He continued to say that the ring we picked out wasn’t available but might be in the near future (what the reps told him). After hearing this I have to admit I’m SO beyond heartbroken…
However, my Boyfriend or Best Friend continued to say that we should go to the store together later next month while we’re home for his friends weddings…
I’m just like, I don’t care about the ring, I just want the proposal (even without the ring!) *Sigh* I didn’t even talk to my best friend about this because I didn’t want to excite anyone other than myself…So far only you (who are reading) and my mom knew I let myself get so excited…
It’s really a sad place to be in because I was SO excited and thought maybe this is it. Why is he doing this? Is he unsure? Am I over analyzing things? 🙁 Do you think he’s messing with me or is it not the right time yet? 🙁

Are you sure he’s not just throwing you off because he thinks you might have figured it out due to his behavior? There are plenty of women that have been COMPLETELY thrown off because their SO knew they figured it out and wanted to shake things up a bit. Something to think about…
If not, at least you guys are going to be looking for the new engagement ring, if, in fact, it had been purchased by someone other than him. Either way, it sounds like a win-win situation to me. He either tricked you into believing he didn’t have the ring OR you guys will be looking for it really soon. 🙂 Good luck to you and enjoy your camping trip.

I think you’re right. He’s most likely on to me. For example, I asked him what plans he had for this weekend because a couple of friends of ours wanted to put together a movie/drinks night at their house and he quickly said, “Oh, no plans this weekend, but next weekend is out of the question.” So…I am thinking he’s still keeping with his plan 🙂
Even though I’m SO totally excited I’ve been really trying my best to act like I don’t know a thing and haven’t bothered him about his plans other than asking once about going to our friends place.
Oh, and the weird part is that I am so beyond sure that our friends (the girl at least) knows that he’s got the ring or is close to.
We will see what happens! 🙂 I’ll keep you posted, and thank you for the luck on the trip!

Update! Obviously it’s been a while, but I wanted to share some news. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I ordered the ring about a week ago and have 2 weeks to wait to pick it up!!! 🙂 We talked about when he would pop the question and decided that it would be sometime before we head home from school to visit my mom and brothers! 😀 I am so excited to be engaged to my Boyfriend or Best Friend and am SO effing antsy!!!
Hopefully in 2-3 weeks I’ll have a picture to post for you bees! 🙂
