So, ive been reading up on some posts, and thought maybe I should introduce myself. Not that I have a lot to say but I’ll give you my story.
I’m as you probably guessed, “in waiting” mode, and like the rest of you, it’s driving me bananas.
Mr Fox and I met in April of this year and have an excellent relationship, it has its ups and it has it downs, but we always manage to fix our problems respectfully and come out stronger each time. He works in real estate, and I am a graduate gemologist and own my own company, I have 2 kids from a previous relationship and Mr Fox is great with them. I wouldnt have it any other way!
I didnt realize I was “in waiting” until about 2 weeks ago when we were talking about getting christmas gifts for each other… since it’s our first christmas together I wanted a better feel for what would be a good gift for him… so I decided on a blackberry playbook for him and gave him a couple clues… I told him all I wanted for christmas was a pair of socks, since I really couldnt think of anything else I wanted or needed, he’s always spoiled me, so I have everything really, not to mention I make enough to spoil myself from time to time… anywayyyyy he took it upon himself to pick something out all by himself, and the clues he gave me were “white, I’ll use it everyday, baseball, and wave breaker” I told my mom and my best friend who happens to be my cousin, and we all pretty much decided it was gonna an Engagement Ring. So here I am, waiting for my special moment, I can hardly wait. I just have one question; since I’m not supposed to know, (he thinks I have no clue) how do I let him know what kind of ring I want?? Anyone else having this issue?
Sorry for the long post!

Welcome and congrats on your pending engagment!
Now, don’t psyce yourself out too much. Many of us have done that and ruined perfectly good events. (For a great example, go see me “Ring Box in The Cereal Box ” saga)
I don’t want to be a negative nancy, so I’ll cross my fingers, toes, and everything else for a happy xmas engagement!!

Oh I get where you’re coming from, its happened to me once before with a previous ex-fiance… but the cute part is, he took me and my daughters out for dinner one day at Montanas, its one of my favourite places to eat when the kids are around cause the kids can colour on the paper tablecloth. well he started a game of hangman with me…. guess what he wrote?
” I can see myself marrying you” it was quite possibly the sweetest thing ever, I almost cried… But I was actually a little to shocked to cry…. I never expected it… either way, I’m in love with this man even if we never got engaged or married, he’s the one I want to spend the rest of my days with! 🙂

@foxybride: Out of curiosity how do baseball and wave breaker point to an engagement ring?

Welcome. I waited 4.5 years. While I never use to want to get married. My wants changed about 2 years ago, so I guess I waited 2 years 🙂

Welcome to the bees! It sounds promising with those clues but it is always best to keep it to yourself…and try not to let your imagination run away.
However, I think you’ve got a good chance of it being an e-ring!!! Yay. Keep us posted.
