Sounds fun!

1.) I’m number 18.

2.) I’ve been on the list for 10 months (How did that happen?!)

3.) We’ve been together coming up on 5 years. 

4.) I’m waiting because his plan for his proposal apparently requires it to be warm out, so he said it would be any time between May & August.  (Eeeeek! )

5.) Oops, answered this in #4!

 

Shout out to MsMamaBear since she was one of the two people who welcomed me to the bee back in the day!

 

ETA:  Bonus Question:  We’re both 21.

This is my first time on the list (I’m last!)
We’ve been together 1 year, 11 months and 18 days.
I’m waiting because I love him! I’m waiting because we live together and I want to keep our life together… Permanently!
I think we’ll be engaged very very soon…. Weeks, maybe? *fingers crossed*

1. I’m # 176
2. I’ve been on the list for a week or so now, but I’ve been waiting since December.
3. I’ve been with my SO for 1.5 years.
4. I’m waiting because we have had discussions that have led to the agreement that we’re ready for the next step!
5. It should be sometime between May-August!

I shout out to Tunacupcakes, because we have a lot in common, she gives great advice, and she’s so nice! ๐Ÿ™‚

1. I’m #24

2. I’ve been on the list for about 6 months, I think.

3. We’ve been together since August of 2009.

4. I’m waiting because of lack of funds on the ring front. First the SO lost his job, then got a new one, then had some major bills pop up, then we moved, then we had to move AGAIN a week later, then we had more major bills from paying on three places at once. I’m at my wit’s end. I told him just to do it and we can get the ring later.

5. I really have no idea when it will happen.  He has been saying “next month” since last October, so who knows! I do know that he is actively speaking with the ring designer right now, though, and has put down a deposit.

 

I don’t really have anyone to shout out to since I’ve been avoiding the Bee, hoping that if I wasn’t looking at this stuff every day, I wouldn’t get upset about waiting. It’s not really working.

Fun idea!

1. Currently 58.  Ironically, there were 158 on the list when I asked to be on it (and I was put at 169 then, pre-list culling).

2. Joined list 5 months ago, 12/6 list when LetsGoPens was posting.  First found bee and posted 8 months ago.

3. 3 years in about 2 weeks!

4. He moves slowly and takes things one at a time!  Now that he’s got a new job, I’m moved in and the kitchen renovation is over, we’re starting to look at rings.  First trip planned this Saturday!

5. Sigh.  End of summer is my best guess, maybe in August?  Need to find a ring, buy a ring, wait for the ring, wait for a proposal.

Bonus:

6. Ages: I am 31, he is 35.

@Torrid:  I’m trying just to go with the flow since it’s SO close!  Sometimes I can’t help doing a happy dance when no one’s looking because I know it’s coming.  Lol!

1. I’m 27 on the list (groan) 

2. I’ve been on the list since September 5, 2010 (though I lurked from about June ’10, and joined in August, I didn’t request to be added to the list until then) 

3. Been w/ my SO going on four years (anni on July 3rd) 

4. Idk why exactly I’m waiting, there are a myriad of reasons, most of which boil down to him “just not being ready yet” (siiiiiiiiigh w/ an eye roll) 

5. Optimistic answer? This year. Pessimistic answer? Next year. (booo)  

Shout out to my neighbors kentuckygirl and Miss Co-Pilot, though I must second 

@MissBoPeep:‘s shout out to MsMamaBear, as she was very welcoming to me as well. As are/were most of the ladies, of course. And I joined under littlemissmango’s reign as listkeeper.

3. A bit over 6 years together and soooo happy!

4. Right now I’m waiting for him to get the stone cut, buy a setting for it, and propose!
