for me to join the hive.
Hi Ladies, first post here, you all seem like such a supportive bunch. I was going to hold off joining for at least another week. Then I got the sign it was time. Which sign you ask? You’d like to make guesses for a long first post and so you can all get to know the story at once? Why didn’t you just say so?
Was it when SO asked what it would take to get me to move in and I told him a ring and a date? No that was in February.
Was it that SO let it slip one night that he was 99.9% sure he wanted to marry me? No, that was also in Feburary after I punched him in the face. (He was teaching me to fight. He swears it didn’t hurt at all and was so proud that I actually managed to hit him. 😀 )
Maybe it was because I accidentally sent a bunch of engagement ring pictures to him on the instant messanger at work when I meant to send them to a co-worker who was looking? Umm….no, but a story for another time, perhaps. (“Sweetie, I’m serious they wern’t for me!! I don’t like round diamonds, I swear!!!”)
Perhaps it was because SO let me send him pictures of all my favorite rings and explain at length and in detail about what I liked and didn’t like about them? Sorry that’s still not it, exciting though, no?
How about the time SO told me things were in the works and I need to not ask questions because he wanted to suprise me and I aways ruin suprises…(guilty!)? Was that it? We’re getting pretty hot, here. it wasn’t then that I decided to stop lurking, but that was about when I started feeling like I might belong here.
Give up? OK, I’ll tell you. This week I started saving pictures of my favorite wedding things on my work computer. That’s it that’s when I knew it was time to join the hive. Because I’m a little younger or he’s a little older, I don’t have friends who are in the marrying age yet and his friends are all already married. Who am I supposed to gush to about the fabulousness of 100layercake? Or share the great poem that perfectly explains how I feel about Mr Eucie C?
Well you all seem like such a supportive bunch and I was really hoping you ladies would be as excited to get to know me as I have been in evesdropping on all your posts the last few months. What do you think hive, am I in? Am I officially waiting?
