Oh, that’s totally annoying! One weekend last year, during my really itchy waiting period, we went on a day trip to a nearby town. We wanted to just spend the day having fun together, exploring, and de-stressing (b/c the whole engagement thing had been putting some stress on our relationship lately). Well, about halfway through the afternoon we walked into a hotel in the town square and walked smack into a wedding party all lining up together. We headed out and down the street, and here come the bride and groom riding along happily in a horse drawn carriage. We just looked at each other and I forget what Fiance, then-BF said, but it was totally awkward and nearly ruined the mood of our little afternoon getaway. Boo…

That’s hilarious but not at the same time…  I had been waiting for years….our really close friends got engaged, both younger than us and hadn’t been together as long.  Then a couple days later we leave to go to another friend’s wedding and we had to cross the border.  Here’s the conversation:

Border Guard:  How do you know each other?

Me:  Um….we live together???

BG:  Where are you going?

Me:  Eventually to Manitoba.

BG:  Why?

Me:  My friend is getting married and we’re going to the wedding.

BG:  Well when’s your turn.

Me as I turn to the SO:  Excellent question…

@Gwen von D – Thats gotta suck! I hate moments like that – its always awkward when e-ring ads come on TV or people getting married on TV shows.

@HoyaLawya2010 OMG that happened to us a couple of months ago but they were doing their photos on the pier next to where we were having a picnic dinner and we both just sat they silent for like 20 mins while they did their photos and watched.

@NYE Gal LOL! What did SO say to your comment!?

Yes, always awkward when the ring commercials come on–but I really do hope he is listening to them!!! Hopefully all of the signs are a good thing and it is going to happen for you soon!

I know what you mean, I love it when my facebook adds all relate to rings, weddings, or babies. I don’t even have the ring yet!
