Hello my lovely bees!
I’ve been lurking around the hive for some time, and am super excited to let you all know that I am OFFICIALLY a bee in waiting!
My boyfriend – we’ll call him K – and I have been together for 3.5 years, and have been talking marriage for the last 6 or so months. It’s to the point that we both know we’re going to marry each other, it’s simply a matter of time until it becomes “official.” We’ve looked at rings, narrowed it down and even though the final ring will be a surprise, he has a good idea of what I’d like. It’s only a matter of time! We talk about our future all the time, and he has on more than one occasion elluded to the fact that he’s been planning his proposal.
Technically I think I’ve been waiting for a few months already, but here’s my little story to explain why I’m so excited NOW!
A couple months ago, while we were at a jeweler checking out some rings, the sales lady asked us when we were going to get engaged. K said, “Within a year.” I was satisfied with that, secretly hoping it would happen sooner rather than later. But last night, we were walking into the mall to go see a movie, and I had joked in the car about trying on rings while we were here, because I might have changed my mind in terms of what I want in a ring. (I haven’t really, but in the beginning of this process I liked so many I just couldn’t make up my mind! So we joke now about how I am always changing my mind.) Something came up about how much longer I can change my mind, and he said, “Probably not much longer. Maybe I’m planning to save money when I get my first couple of paychecks. Maybe I already have a separate account set up for it.” And I said, “Really?” and he said, “Maaaybeeeee.” Which means yes!
He just got a new job, after not having one for a couple of months, so I knew even though he has savings, that he wouldn’t feel comfortable buying a ring until he had a new job. Luckily, we’ve decided on moissanite so it won’t be breaking the bank! Is anyone else out there impatiently waiting for there moissy beauty?! Show me pictures of the one you want!
I seriously can’t wait. I just wanted to share my excitement with all of you who understand! Feel free to post some moissanite porn since I’ll probably be stalking pictures of rings until he pops the big question. Or share proposal stories! Or anything waiting related! I want to hear it all!
EEEEKKKKKK I’M SO EXCITED!
