I will first start off with my username. My bf has been talking about an engagement and I always say it is far far away. He always responds with, “No hunny. Just one far.” The other day he told me that he had everything planned out and had been looking at rings. He says he is waiting on my parents to be ready. (I am 18 and he is 19) We plan on me finishing college before we get married. (Which is my dads only requirement) My mom was going to give him a wedding set that was given to my dad many years ago. (He is a police officer and a little old lady found the set. Nobody claimed them so he brought them home.) My mom said she wanted him to have them for when he was ready. He knows all of this about my parents.
I have a very simple promise ring that I love. One day he said that I had a ring. Naturally I said that I know and that it is on my finger. He smiled and said, “No, you have a new ring.”
The other day we were talking about Christmas. It is impossible for us to keep anything from each other and we always spill the beans about what we are getting each other. He told me what he was getting me. A new Vera Bradley, Tickets to an Atlanta Falcons game (our favorite team) on New Years Day, and a mysterious gift that he plans on hiding. I kept at him about it and he was willing to give in. He seemed sad and I asked why. He said that he really wanted this to be a surprise and it ment a lot to him. I gave in and told him I wouldn’t bother him about it.
Talking about and engagement and starting a family is an everyday thing for us now. We have always been very open about this from day one. We have been together for almost 5 years now. We were 13 when we started dating. 4/4/2007. We knew the first day that we would spend our lives together. He has stopped spending as much time with his guy friends and we are doing a lot more together. He has also started to save money like crazy. My nanna could POSSIBLY be buying a house for us. (A possible foreclosure that lives above her. She hates the people and has made a comment that she would like us to live there and would buy it if it sold for taxes owed) He always checks on the status of the house and talks about us moving in together. We know that it is highly unlikely that we will get the house and talk about other places to live. We each have land of our own.
I think it will happen on Christmas or when we go to Atlanta. I’m worried that I am reading too far into things and it won’t be for a while. (Which I am perfectly fine with waiting. He knows that I am ready and that it is up to him to decide when. I do not want to pressure him into anything.) I never dreamed of my wedding when I was little. It is all just now starting to hit me. I can’t help to look at dresses and wedding related things. Am I crazy or am I about to become a Future Mrs. N?
