This is so exciting for you!! I’m in the same boat, I’m the kind of girl that goes for what she wants and makes it happen, now it’s totally in his control & it’s killing me! ha ha

We had the ring made and he picked it up MONTHS ago! I’ve definitely had a re-think about if what we ordered was what I really wanted and if I wanted something else, particularly after seeing all of the amazing rings here!! I too have decided that the original is definitely what I want…I just want it so it’s MINE…does that make sense?

What you do know, is that it’s on it’s way…very exciting. I know it sounds weird but try to have fun waiting for it..I’ve been trying to keep myself busy with constant manicures and lots of jogs after work to keep myself looking good for any photos πŸ˜‰

Good luck! I hope your happily ever after is sooner than you think!!

First, LOVE your screen name – a throwback to Friends. It always cracked me up. Second, I feel for you. I’m in a similar situation and it’s driving me crazy. My SO asked for my dad’s blessing months ago and he has all the info on the ring I want so all I can do is sit back and wait. I hate not having any control but this is one situation that can’t be helped. Mr. Bee’s Plan is about all I can do! I’m glad you were able to talk to your SO and he was so understanding about how you feel. You are very lucky. Hopefully it happens soon for you!

@Regina Phalange: Hooray for your impending engagement! πŸ™‚ And, yes, I totally felt like this while I was waiting. I hate surprises, and it drove me nuts that Fiance had all the control and I had no idea when or where the proposal was coming. I drove him crazy asking for the smallest hints or details, haha. It took sheer force of will for me to finally just back down and accept that I was gonna be totally in the dark about this one. It was so hard to do, but so worth it when he finally did propose.

“I talked to him about my feelings and he said he would give me a one-month heads up. :)”  Haha!  I love that!  You two seem to really get each other so good for you for talking to him and an early Congratulations πŸ™‚

I agree with trying not to press for details, Mr TKR seemed upset on the weekend – he really, really wants to do it in his own time with his own plan…no involvement or questioning from me. I have put myself on an engagement talking ‘ban’ until after my birthday in August. It’s driving me nuts but I’m super glad I found this outlet

I hear ya, waiting when you know it is “close” can seem soooo long.

Good idea to work Mr Bee’s plan, it’ll keep you busy in the meantime.

Lol, I just thought of something, your Boyfriend or Best Friend said he’d give you a heads-up a month out… hmmm, thinking that “What is your ring size” might be all that you ever get (guys are kind of mysterious when it comes to such things… and down the road he might say… “hey I did you give you a heads-up I asked your ring size”… ) and inevitably us girls go…

DUH, I missed it.

Congratulations, and try to relax it’ll be happen in good time (and his way), and I promise it’ll be wonderful.
