I know exactly how you feel. 95% sure I have 9 weeks left to the proposal date, which is killer. The only reason I am that sure of the date is there are too many weird things that point towards a proposal. 8/8 is the date we’re hiking a 14er and the mountains are a huge part of our life so I couldn’t imagine him doing anywhere else. He doesn’t have that day off – he had to ask for it off. He has a day off 2 days later but refuses to switch the date. 8 is his favorite/lucky number. All signs point to that date. 

Anyway, my SO is a teacher as well but has a summer job. He gets paid each month for the teaching job, even in the summer, so essentially he has 2x the income. Anyway, I keep counting down to the day, but it hit me today – this is HUGE! I’ve been waiting my whole life for this event and it won’t seem real until the ring is on my finger. But I wonder the same things as you…how will I feel? Will I cry (duh, I definitely will)? What will he say? How exactly is he going to do it. 

Thankfully I have a lot going on in the next two months. I plan on buying a new car, which I have been saving up for for years. I’m just hoping to stay busy so I don’t go too crazy. 

Don’t worry – you aren’t psycho for gathering ideas for your wedding. I do it too!!

You are definitely not alone! I am not allowed to ask anything else about my ring or the proposal (we are still a long ways away) but I did ask SO to make sure that my nails are done, I’m dressed at least decently and that I have makeup on. Not that hard since I usually dress cute and wear makeup when we go on a “date night” but the nails are a somewhat new thing. We’ll see how he handles making sure mine are done without tipping me off πŸ™‚

I have always made fun of my best freind for wearing sweatpants when her husband proposed but then when it was my turn, i was in workout clothes!! I also knew he had the ring, but he decided to propose earlier than when we going to a romantic wine tasting etc etc when i would have looked nice! My ring is pink so I told my aunt i would wear pink until he proposed lol Happy waiting! I know it’s hard!

@MissCrystalBall:  I’m feeling the same way!  SO said it’s going to happen before my business trip at the end of July but after my birthday since he plans to ask my dad’s blessing next weekend.  I have a six week range where my little nails better be polished and my hair needs to beahve πŸ˜‰  Unfortunately, like 3 nails broke suddenly last week, so I’m back to the drawing board with them.


Maybe polishing our nails on a regular basis will help?  πŸ˜‰

I totally feel ya on this one. I believe my SO will be proposing ~July 20 (our 4 year anniversary) ..sooooooo far away. And I got to pick out the ring, so it makes it worse. He hasnt paid it off yet but said it will be soon..i just cant seem to find anything else to concentrate on. Its stressful actually. I have been waiting my ENTIRE life for this. Now, knowing it is close, makes me very anxious. I have been painting my nails every few days (or however long it takes for them to chip) for 2 months now. And he has noticed.. and he knows why lol
