….But he did surprise me with a Dyson. So at least the carpets are cleaner now! LOL.
Now I’m hoping for our vacation in Mexico next month, which we will be there for my 27th birthday. Here is hoping! Till then… vacumning 🙂

Have you discussed a proposal timeline at all?

Can you believe how much dirt it picks up?? I was slightly amazed and slightly disgusted all at the same time!!! I emptied the canister and made my SO vacumn our bedroom just so he could see how much dirt it picks up compared to our old one. That was my excitement for our anniversary there. Vacuming together LOL.

@KatyElle: Yes – he knows 8 years is my limit. Last we talked about it I got the ” I’ve surprised you with everything else in our relationship, why wouldn’t I surprise you with an engagement” so I am hoping it’s soon-ish! He is a gatekeeper with surprises, he was going to take me to Vegas this weekend before it fell through and I had NO idea about it until after the fact on Saturday. So whenever the proposal happens, I am sure it will be a big shock!

Oh my gosh I actually squealed when I got my Dyson.. aren’t they wonderful?? It makes vacuuming a bit more fun.. I definitely vacuum way more with my Dyson!
Hope it happens in Mexico girl! 🙂

I love my dyson too, they are amazing! But I probably would have been a little bummed about it being an anniversary gift. Then again, I got a Kitchen Aid Mixer for our 9th valentine’s day together…which was awesome, but not what I was really hoping for.
I guess I am also guilty of doing this, I bought my SO a toaster oven for our second Christmas together because he really likes toast and needed one. I was so stoked, he was a little less excited.
Here’s to dating men with practical gifts in mind! Hope your vacation goes well and perhaps the proposal will happen then!

Wow – I commend you on your wonderfully positive attitude – that will go far in your future marriage 🙂 Those Dysons are strong enough to vacuum up a ring! Be on the lookout before anniversary #8! Here’s hoping your next practical gift will be round and shiny 🙂

You know you’re getting older when vacuums excite you. Hopefully you get your proposal in Mexico!

Congrats on your Dyson (I am personally a Kirby girl, lol). Your attitude is so commendable! How do you do it? Seriously?! I am getting to 2.5 years and already feeling resentful. Anyways, I am keeping my fingers crossed for you while you are in Mexico!!

@HeartsandSparkles: I have my moments, trust me! I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t have my days! But I’m hopeful 🙂

LOL. I will have my fingers crossed for you… and I am very jealous – I’ve always wanted a Dyson!

If he wants to surprise you perhaps you are mistaken in thinking that it will happen at such a predictable time. If it had happened tonight he would not have been able to surprise you! I think it will happen before your birthday. 🙂
