Oh, I am going to need your support! This weekend my SO and I will be heading to his younger sister’s wedding. My SO will actually be officiating the ceremony! I know already that I am going to lose it. I am going to bawl like a baby, because it is going to be so incredibly beautiful. I am deeply happy for the happy couple, and I believe that this is going a wonderful weekend.
But when we get back, I think I am going to be a wreck!
To give some background, my SO and I have been together for almost 2 years, and our timeline for getting engaged is sometime this summer. I am pretty sure that he has the ring in his possession now. Several months ago we both unexpectedly fell in love with his grandmother’s heirloom ring, and now if I am piecing together some subtle clues correctly, I think it has been resized and may now be in his possession. However, I told my SO that he would be a bad brother if he proposed so soon before his sister’s wedding and stole some of her thunder. To which he responded, “Are you kidding?! I plan to do it from the altar during the ceremony!” Silly, silly boy.
But this is the last hurdle. This is the last step. Come June 2nd, my proposal and engagement will officially be imminent! And I think I may go out of my mind with excitement! I am already getting jumpy, thinking with every turn, “Could this be? Is this it?!” Though I have been on Waiting Bee for awhile now, I feel like I am now really a waiting Waiting Bee!
Bees, as all of your dreaming and hoping started to come even closer and closer to being a reality, how did you contain your excitement? How do you not read into every moment? How did you Shut It Up and let it happen? How did you patiently wait, Waiting Bees?

Clearly, I’m no longer waiting 😉 but my best advice is just not to read into every little thing too much. If he starts telling you how much he loves you and how beautiful you are, etc. try to just listen to what he’s saying and not start the whole “OMG this is IT!!” conversation in your head. I know it’s hard! But if you over analyze every little thing, you’ll miss out on those sweet moments that he may just be wanting to do something special for you “just because” or tell you how wonderful you are “just because” and not to lead up to the proposal. This season of waiting is such a short one and will be gone before you know it! Just breathe easy and try to cherish it…because once that ring is on your finger, things will get crazy!! 🙂 Most importantly, don’t rush him…let him plan the perfect proposal and then you can plan the perfect wedding! 🙂 Congratulations on the upcoming engagement! It will be wonderful!

Exciting, indeed!!! You’ve got more to go on than I do, but my SO and I recently discussed a summer 2014 wedding (wherein he actually said, “we don’t have to wait until summer”, I responded “well, something has to happen first”, he said “I know” calm and cool like a cucumber) so a proposal has got to be coming REALLY soon. I could be going crazy but I’ve decided that nothing good comes from it. Of course, special weekends away it’s hard to not be a little more anxious, but I don’t want to spoil his surprise or set myself up for disappointment.
On that note, we’re going away this weekend just the two of us. I’m focusing on the great time we’re going to have, with or without proposal!
I think we/waiting ladies should just revel in the excitement and enjoy it… this is (hopefully) a once in a lifetime experience and I want to bask in it!

Haha! I know the day my SO will propose on ( we picked it together and it is SOON now) and even with knowing I m getting really excited! The nice thing is that I can tell him how excited i am and we look forward to it together. But he said that he is planning a surprise, and the guy is the shy geek type first relationship and all, so I have absolutely NO idea what he is planning lol I cant wait to see this other side of him lol! I just asked him to be not too public or too big but I dont think I have to worry 🙂
