Good morning Bees,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
My reason for this post is… It looks like I won’t be “waiting” much longer!!!
Brick and I were in the car on our way home from seeing friends over the Christmas break and he was stressing (as always) about money, buying a house etc. and he mentioned that he wishes we started saving a lot earlier as he feels like we are so far behind in our timeline. (I love him to death but he worries to dang much, we are hoping to buy a house in the next 3 months so we are on track if you ask me) but anyway back to the important topic…
Seeing this as my chance to get a little bit of info out of him (I couldn’t help myself), I casually asked “well what do you see as our timeline for the next 5 years?” his response went a little something like this “Well we will be engaged next year (2013) obviously and then I don’t mind if we have a short engagement, maybe 6-8 months and then we can start having kids pretty much right away” now I’m surprised I heard anything after “We will be engaged next year obviously” because that’s all that kept replaying in my head! I now know it could be anywhere between now and December but I don’t care.. the love of my life is going to be asking me to marry him THIS YEAR!! Oh happy days!!!
Much love to all the waiting bees out there! And a big congrats to those lucky bees who got Christmas/New Year proposals!

@Brickette: I am with you!!!! We can wait together :P. SO and I were talking timelines and I asked him when he thought was too long for a guy to wait before proposing. His answer was “it has to be before or by the 3rd year. Our 2nd anniversary is this Friday… The wheels in my head began to turn! It’s happening this year too, I know it.
It’s exciting and nervewracking lol. Congrats on the new tip Brickette 🙂

I’m this year too – we’re getting engaged in December! Right now I am having fun looking forward to it, and we’re moving in together in March, so I’ll have lots to do. I bet as it gets closer I might get a little wild though!

Oh I am waiting on 2013 as well!! This sounds like very promising news on your end, if he’s including an engagement, wedding, and kids all within 5 years! I bet he won’t keep you waiting until December 🙂

Oh boy I hope you’re right!! I am already driving myself nuts now with when he might do it and I am actually leaning towards November/December as it is our 7 year anniversary in November and Christmas Eve of ’06 was the first time he said ILY so those months hold a lot of meaning for us.. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you too for EARLY this year 🙂
Its driving me crazy already! (In a good way 😉 )

Congrats 🙂 I’m not sure if it is better to know or not know.. its all I am thinking about these days (although I already was thinking about it before he dropped the hint lol)
OMG that is SO exciting!!! I wouldnt be able to contain my excitement if I were you, I would just have a big smile plastered to my face until he pops the Q!
Congrats 🙂 🙂 is it hard knowing when it will be and then having to wait for it?
Nope not unlucky at all!! I think this year will be one of the best yet! my fingers are crossed for your 2013 proposal too 🙂 🙂 🙂

Aww Congrats! It looks like you’ll be a 2013 bride 😉 My boyfriend & I had one of our “serious discussions” as well for the past few months, especially before we began our long-distance relationship. He told me he intends to propose sometime this year and to be ready for it. He says he doesn’t want 2013 to end without us getting married. Whaa? Seriously? I have noo idea which month he intends to propose, but he’ll be back in town permanently by March. Ahh. I’m with you on the waiting game 🙂 Enjoy & cherish the days before the proposal! Don’t you wish you can actually replay those cute moments? 🙂

Aww, congrats! So exciting!!!
I am with you on this. I know it will be sometime this year (season probably because I actually proposed to him and he said yes but asked me that we not make it official until he get’s a ring for me) Eek! And my birthday AND Valentines Day are next month. Ahasghfbcsdvbghf!!!!!!!!!!
