Hello ladies! I am so excited to finally join the board!
A little background about me… I’ve been a lurker for longer than I care to admit (cough:over a year:cough) and I absolutely love the camaraderie and support of this community. I know how difficult it is to read the newbee intros, so I’m going to make it as organized as I can… J
Who I am: 23, redhead, easy-going, happy, full time special ed teacher, and part time masters student.
Who we are together: My love and I have been together for over 5 years. He is 27, athletic, sweet, funny, and makes me smile with the little things he does. We have tons of fun together no matter what we’re doing, and we get along great. People ask me all the time where the bling is and are mostly surprised when I tell them that I’m the reason there hasn’t been an engagement. I told my love that I wanted to graduate with my masters before getting engaged- one big project at a time is how I see it.
Why join now: Well, I’ve been addicted to WB for over a year now but decided against registering until now. I knew if I registered I would be spending even more time on WB instead of doing homework. I told myself that it would be ok for me to join in October of this year because that wouldn’t be so far from a proposal, but I got busy and will now finally have time. Also, I just noticed the waiting list this week and realized that I wanted to be a part of it before an engagement!!
Where we are: In September my love asked me for my “dream rings” word document (he happened upon it 2 years ago when he was using my computer—oops!), which I gladly sent to him. That night he also sat me on his lap and we browsed through several pages of engagement rings online. I went by myself to a jewelry store to try some rings on, and gave him an updated list of my top three (he wanted as much input as he could get). I’m not expecting a proposal until after my graduation in May, which is perfect!
Sorry that was so long! I just feel like I know you all so well, and I am so excited to be a part of this group!
