I have been seeing so many stressed and annoyed “Waiting” posts… I just wanted to throw some positive vibes out there and share some cute things my SO has said lately, and hear some of your excited/ happy waiting stories!
My SO today texted me on his break at work to ask what I was up to, and I told him “Oh, planning your proposal.” (We’re racing to see who will propose first!)
He responded “I love how you’re so straight-forward with it.”
I told him “I’m excited. I want to marry you and I don’t want to pretend otherwise.”
He texted back: “Lol I can’t wait either. We have a lot to do!”
Maybe it doesn’t excite you ladies as much as it excites me, but just that little conversation alluding to getting married had me blushing and smiling and just all-around feeling thrilled (: I can’t wait to propose/ be proposed to, plan out our big day, marry the man of my dreams and live the rest of my life by his side.
I think I’m finally just at that point where I’m deliriously happy that I know my wait is almost over!
Any other excited Waiting Bees?

I’m excited, too. My SO is still on the fence about it, but I feel totally comfortable that the right thing will happen. I am so thankful to have such a good guy and I just enjoy being with him! Thanks for the good vibes!

Oh my gosh that is so adorable!
My SO is away this weekend and he just called me, and mentioned that he had been looking at rings today in a mall! I could not be more surprised, I’m still in shock a couple of hours later. We’ve had a timeline talk and everything, but we decided to get engaged early 2013 so I’m surprised he’s already on it! And actually, the most surprising thing is that he’s in a mall, because that is very out of character, lol. And I was definitely expecting to get some unique artisan ring off of Etsy! That would actually be amazing, but I’m happy either way 😉

I’m very happy most days but there are certainly some days where I feel frustrated and wishing he’d just go ahead and pull the trigger so we can stop hypothetically talking about everything and start actually making real plans. I’m very lucky to have such an amazing man in my life and I truly hope this really is IT because life with him would be wonderful. My timeline is by our second anniversary and not too far away, I really hope he sticks to it!

*raises hand* Me! I’m just excited about where we are in our relationship and where we are going. We just celebrated our two year anniversary and he’s bought the ring!! Sure I won’t get it until 2013 but I know it’s because he wants to propose in on our trip to Vegas and make it incredibly special so I really don’t mind waiting.
@Britk: Aww you and your SO are so sweet!

I’m with you ladies, I’m just having a good time waiting to see what he’ll come up with next. I’m pretty convinced that what I envision in my head as a romantic well thought out proposal just won’t happen, Not that he doesn’t love me dearly, he just doesn’t have THAT kind of imagination and I have promised that from here on out he’s on his own with the whole engagement ring thing.
He loves to randomly text things to me about marriage and it makes me smile when he does, but it’s not something I can share with non-bees because they don’t get it!
Example of random weekday morning text….
SO: Let’s get married on a beach.
Me: West facing at sunset.
SO: Keys or Caymans.
Me: You’re call but we don’t invite “The Joan”. (his fathers evil, evil GF)
SO: No Joan, your choice on where.
Looks like it’s all planned and without “The Joan”.
Thanks for letting me share!
@MrsSnowMountain: I was looking for an Etsy type out of the norm ring as well, even sent him the links but he’s sort of traditional and wants the diamond ering. As long as it’s shiny I’m not going to be picky 🙂

My SO pretty much says something every day about making me his fiance, and how he can’t wait. He also says how much he wants to get married and grow old with me, and how he will never let me go. 🙂
We’re that super annoying couple who can’t keep their hands off each other in public. 😛
We haven’t started looking at rings yet (although he’s hinted that he wants my input on it a few times), and we have plans to visit his parents and my parents this summer. I know that he can’t really propose until after that happens, and until he gets a ring, so I’m just enjoying his company and our relationship. We have so much fun together and he spoils me ridiculously.

fivedogsrule Aw you guys are adorable! And wheeee, Etsy! The thing is, my Boyfriend or Best Friend is not traditional at ALL, and we have both jokingly and explicitly said no diamonds. I think he just has nooo clue where the first place to start looking is, so hw went to the mall, lol clueless man. I’ll have to at least make him aware of the existance of other options 😉

Eek! I love your stories! It sounds like we all have some very lucky guys 😉 Kidding, I know I feel like the lucky one here. And thank you, @ilaz and @Miss Circe! I think my SO is the sweetest thing (:

Yay for positive energy!
I’m also in a very good place with my SO. I got the ball rolling last weekend, and we had a really sweet and frank conversation that led to both of us saying we want to marry each other sometime in the next couple years! We both *knew*, but we’d never explicitely laid it out there, so that was super exciting.
Also, I accidentally saw a convo he had with his best friend (he asked me to check something on his computer and it was right there… whoops) telling him about the talk we had and that “this is it!”
Loving love these days.

@Britk: Yay! A happy waiting post!
I do know what you mean, I’m having a great time enjoying the last bit of BF/GF events before its Fiance and then WIFE. He just makes me happy, and it doesn’t have to be about weddings.
We can watch tv and he just looks at me and gives me a cheesy smile and a “hi lil snail” and I can’t help but light up! Ah! 😀
Sorry to gush but I am just soo madly in love with him!

@Miss T-Rex – ME TOO! HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!
We are one of those cuddle on the chouch couples. He went to a party by himself a few months ago and came home to tell me that everyone was asking for me. That we are “JOEANDGV” and not “Joe” and “GV” to these ppl. I said I don’t care as long as its u&i2gether.

As much as I hate my job, this is actually the happiest I’ve been in a really, really long time, and my SO is definitely the reason. Our relationship is just so easy. I’m not constantly struggling to keep it afloat like I was used to doing before. He loves me and I love him. No games. No drama. Just love. 🙂
I’m also really happy because we’re moving in together next week and I feel like I’ve been waiting for July for an eternity! June dragged on, and it didn’t help that I was in a car accident halfway through the month. I’m okay and so is the car, but it was just not what I needed right now. Things were going too well, I guess. Karma had to knock me down a peg. haha

You know, I woke up this morning thinking to myself that being this happy can not be real. I have had made bad choices in my younger years with the wrong men and I ended up a single mom.
Now I am married to such an amazing man who went from being a bachlor to a full time husband and dad over night. He does anything and everything to keeps us safe and happy. I want nothing more then to do the same for him.
We are soon going to TTC, bought our house, had a wonderful wedding and honeymoon a few months ago. We both have jobs. I can truly say I have nothing to complain about.
It is scary sometimes that I am this happy!

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice: I agree, my past relationships had so much drama and I struggled so much to be happy. When I met my Darling Husband I thought that something was up because it was just to easy. Even our arguements where easy and done with so much respect. I thought this was not the norm but all along, this was actually how it should be.
