@killerQueen13  i started yesterday too! I have been with my SO for 2.5 years and have lived with him for 1.5.  He already bought the ring and picked it up (we picked it out together) and its driving me insane! so I decided to start mr bee’s plan yesterday and I’m ‘rewarding” myself for everyday I go without bringing it up HA.. yesterday I went and got pedicures with the girls.  Working out I think will help a lot!  I feel like I need to have constant plans or else I think about it and get all down which in turn causes pointless arguments.  I’ve read other posts that say to focus on you etc, much easier said than done!  Good luck!  Hopefully other ppl comment with more ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

Lets see….I’ve been going to work out class twice a week. I have been calling my friends or trying to see at least one of them once a week. I have become obsessed with keeping my nails done and trying to look decent every day (instead of like, yoga pants and a t-shirt).

I’m trying to be spontanious and to plan date nights for us. I have a bunch of DIY projects for around the house. I’m trying to save money.

I dont know, i’m just trying to make myself happy instead of the horror that is waiting lol.

Yeah defo just trying to keep busy and always having something to do keeps your mind off the waiting and overthinking the chance of a future proposal! I just started the plan 2 days ago as well and I’m painting my nails and curling my hair, don’t know if its being noticed though lol!x

Omg!  I think we’re strategy twins!  I definitely went shopping by myself for red lipstick yesterday and come home with new nailpolish (typical me).  Btw, the nail polish I got is more of a shallac and I love it! Definitely recommend!

I’m doing the fake tanning lotion, trying to work out 4-5 times a week, wearing cute clothes, actually doing stuff to my hair and now I’m looking for a new hobby.

We’ve been dating for 7.5 years, but only living together for 1 (we started living together in July).  We dated in high school, so idk if those early years really count, haha.

I need to go shopping for some new clothes, but I want to lose 5 more pounds.  Possible? 

He’s noticed somewhat, definitely given me more compliments.  I need to keep up on my Bee visits though.  You all are so inspiring!  It helps me stay motivated ๐Ÿ™‚

KillerQueen13: Thanks, hopefully he is! just about to re-paint my nails again too.  Takes a lot of upkept lol!


BadaBingBling: I’ve been going out with my SO for just over 6.5 years since school as well! As far as I’m concerned the early years count as much as any other, you get to know someone very well in that time, and you grow and mature together.  Although I do think it makes him a little more comfortable with you the way things are and harder to shake things over to the next level, I don’t know if you would  agree?

Can’t believe your working out so much! need to take a leaf out of your book!

BadaBingBling is right you are so inspirational! I only found this site a couple of days ago and its so amazing for my motivation!

I LOVE the idea of mr. bee’s plan! It’s so frustrating not having anyone to talk to about the torture of waiting. All of my friends are either single or in new relationships. It’s so great to have a sounding board to relieve my stress. Mr. Bee’s plan has been like a shining light for me. I never even thought about doing it, but now it makes perfect sense. I am definitely up for working out more (just think how the e-pics will look!) and I am debating changing up my hair. I like it wavy, SO likes it straight, but it’s about me for a change! I am definitely going to start having more girls’ nights and maybe picking up a new hobby. I just need to find one that doesn’t cost too much or requires too much equipment. I am terrible at painting my nails, so that’s a no. Thinking about going to buy some new lipstick and eyeshadow for date night tonight Wink

  • Wedding: July 2013

I think I know when my SO plans to propose (8/8/2012) and it’s going to be a LONG 3 months! However, I’m thankful it’s summer because there is so much to do. But here’s my plan:

1. Keep volunteering and getting more involved with the community 

2. Keep in touch with my friends even though they live a few towns over

3. Focus on my photography (ha, pun intended) and learn how to use my new filters 

4. Start looking for a “new” car in July 

5. After buying a car, start saving for a new camera! 

6. Get outside every chance I can and do some gardening. 

Hopefully this waiting period goes quickly for everyone!

I’m *hopefully* getting close to no longer waiting. BUT that being said, I think continuing to invest in yourself is a great thing no matter what stage your relationship is at, so I’ve been trying to build some good habits that I want to keep up even after we get engaged/married.

Here’s what I’ve been doing:

  • Running 
  • Baking (bonus: keeps the boy extra happy)
  • Painting our dining room
  • Cleaning out my closet/donating clothes I no longer wear
  • Painting my nails regulary
  • Having weekly dates with my girlfriends or sisters
  • Planting the garden

I’m really looking forward to summer…it’s so much easier to stay busy without even thinking about it.

Oh my god i have so much gardening to do this weekend.  If you waitng bees were around me i would invite you over for drinks and to help!!

Volunteering is a great idea.  We are sending our puppy away for training (he will be gone 2 months!) so i have to find something to fill the time i usually spent with him! AH!

@killerQueen13  Its for hunting retreival.  So he will be my SO’s hunting buddy and retrieve ducks for him.  Its physically exhausting training, and very detail specific so i guess so they have to work with him every day.  I will be able to visit but thats it!!
