  • Wedding: July 2010

I think I’ll join if no one minds.  πŸ™‚

My Boyfriend or Best Friend took me ring shopping in July at his suggestion.  Well, I felt that gave me free will to begin planning our wedding.  πŸ™‚  Kidding.  But I do have lots of ideas in my head and know what I want.  Now I need the ring so we can tally up the guest list, choose the venue, and get planning!

Uh, since July… nothing.  He’s working on his MBA while working as an engineer 40 hours per week and that’s basically shot his time for any other thought.  Plus, when he took me looking in July, he was astounded by the prices on the rings I chose.  I told him that I would be happy with whatever he was comfortable with, it wasn’t about the ring or cost, and I just wanted to start my life with him.

(I’m 33, never been engaged/married, and no kids.  We’ve been together almost 3 years.  Just typing those 2 sentences have caused my ovaries to shrivel up to the size of raisins.  It’s so time…)

I’ve poked, prodded, joked, etc… and he’s a super good sport considering all of my meddling on the wedding subject.  He says ‘I want to marry you.  It’s going to happen.  Just give me time so I can afford what you want’.  At that, I said ‘Slip a f#%^&*g Lifesaver on my finger!  Lets get on with it!!!!’.  At our ages, I think that if we both know, why wait any longer?

Well, we’ve had movement folks.  One of the jewelers we looked at (where I found THE ring) emailed the Boyfriend or Best Friend telling them about a loose diamond sale they’re having on the 23rd.  Yesterday, he told me about the email and asked if I would like to go with him.  Would I???!!!!!  So, instead of making it to X-mas (because let’s be real… that ain’t happenin’), I’m setting smaller timeline goals with the first one being to keep my mouth zipped until the 23rd.  

Ah, lets see what happens.  πŸ™‚

I’m in too! I’ve been trying really hard not to say anything to my boyfriend about it but it’s so hard no to say sly remarks. I’m hoping by the end of the year I will have a ring!

girls, I think I have to withdraw myself from this challenge… not only have I miserably failed, but J actually said today, “Why don’t we talk about wedding stuff anymore? I miss hearing your ideas and helping you make decisions.”

I was like, “I didn’t want to pressure you about it, and I felt like we spent a lot of our talking time just talking about wedding, and not anything else.”

Him, “But I like talking about that stuff. I love to think about how I get to marry you.”

*sigh* I love this guy. He’s so freaking amazing, and I am so stinking blessed to have him!
