Sorry ladies! Minor family drama kept me away, but of course I couldn’t give up the WB addiction for long! 😉
All is well on this end of town – and perhaps some news! My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I went out to a nice, impromptu, romantical-type dinner last week! I’m sure the waiter loved being a fly on the wall for this conversation.
We were hashing out details of the engagement!
The Boyfriend or Best Friend and I shared some love over samosas, and a few fears on both of our parts. A few things came out of this:
1.) It’s happening within the year.
2.) It’s happening after his brother’s wedding (May)
3.) It’s happening after he meets my folks (July)
So I will be waiting a while! However, there is nothing more calming than the sheepish smile he gave when he said I have “nothing to worry about”. We had a very serious discussion about some religious issues which may crop up between our families and our future child and how we would tackle them.
We are doing great, and the family drama is over as well. We’re off on our first tropical vacation this coming Thursday, and planning another getaway in April to California, except that one will include his mom. 🙂
I see we have some graduates – so congratulations ladies! And those of us STILL waiting?
We’ll get there. 🙂

Heh. Your boyfriend’s “nothing to worry about” comment reminds me of when I had a similar conversation with my fiance. After I had a bit of a freak out over how long I’d have to wait, he finally looked at me and said, “God, I’m gonna propose eventually! Geez.” Months later, I found out that he had already met with a jeweler at the time of that conversation.

Thanks! We’re finally at a point where we can comfortably joke about it happening and the off-the-wall ideas he has for it. I’m glad to be back.
Though, I must admit, I received some of the fabric from India for my wedding lehenga… it’s sitting in his spare room, and though he hasn’t asked about it, I know he knows what it is! >:)

See? Smooth sailing now and just time to sit back, relax and enjoy this special phase in your lives.
The man’s most likely saving $$ and he’s taking a logical approach. I like it!
I think you having the talk is and was a very smart thing to do. Don’t you feel better now?
Btw, welcome back!
