Hey the holidays ARE stressful. There are so many expectations to be met and family drama and shopping anxiety, and that’s without even considering the fact that there might be pre-engagement stress as well! It happens to the best of us. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Smile

Holidays are stressful enough, but when you add in waiting it’s a pure nightmare!!!  I call that stage ‘Limbo’ where you’re planning on getting married, you’ve both agreed to it (basically, despite the ring and proposal situation) but you just can’t DO anything yet!!  I feel for ya sweetie, but thankfully you went ring shopping which means it is coming!!  Try not to stress about it, the more you think (overthink, rethink, dwell, obsess, etc.) the more likely you’ll be to ruin it for yourself.  Try to enjoy life as it is, and ‘forget’ that a proposal is coming.  It’ll be worth it in the end, I promise Smile

@mcklough: I had almost an identical experience and it was so stressful to both me and the SO.  Take everything one day at a time.  Remind yourself as much as you can that your SO is worth the wait (as agonizing as the wait is).  I also had a heart-to-heart with my SO when we were both in the “right mood” just to be sure he knew I wasn’t freaking out AT him.  Being a girl can be tough!  Hang in there and do your best to keep smiling 🙂  (And, keep your girlfriends close, because they are lifesavers!)
