I’m a long time lurker of the waiting board, but a first time poster I’m one of the very fortunate bees that got a Christmas proposal!
Boyfriend or Best Friend (now fiance!) and I have been together for 8 and 1/2 years, and I had been dropping some not so subtle hints about engagement. To all the bees that are still waiting….trust me I totally feel your pain, but my one bit of advice is to back off! It worked for me, and I’m totally surprised it did. I know how tough backing off is, but it’s totally worth it in the end.
My guy popped the question on Christmas Eve in front of both of our parents I was opening his gifts and then got to one that was a Christmas tree ornament that said “Our First Christmas”. I looked at him totally clueless since it obviously wasn’t. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was so shocked! The only other person that knew was my dad. Here is a picture of the ring:
The setting is by Simon G. and exactly what I was looking for. The center stone is 1.01 ct and the total weight of the ring is 1.60 ct.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement!!

@JerseyGirl85: 8.5 years together is definitely a long time! (And I thought the 5.5 years I’ve been with my fiance was a long time.) I’m glad you got your Christmas proposal … The ring is beautiful!
Congratulations and welcome! Have fun posting!
