This post is solely a way for me to let everything out and distract me from spilling the news about recent engagement plans. So, my sig oth and I ordered my custom e-ring last week, which is due to be delivered by our 5th anniversary (in two weeks). I’m very excited about it but I haven’t told anyone, not even my closest friends. It’s really tough to keep it to myself and the wait is even more brutal. We spend a lot of time with his family and they often like to tease about us getting married soon but it’s never anything serious or direct. We spent Easter weekend with them and the topic was particularly brought up more often than usual this weekend (by his mom, grandma and sister). My bf and I already decided we were going to surprise everyone with the news after the proposal, (which will also be private per my request), so I know he didn’t tell his family anything yet. It’s like they can SENSE it. I really want to tell them but I can’t just yet. I was sitting in the backyard by myself today and his mom walked out and first thing she said is “so, when are you guys getting married?” This is the first time she bluntly asks me the question. I was caught off guard and quickly replied “probably next year….uh, April fools!” Ugh whyyyy.
Since I know it’s coming soon, I’m having the most DIFFICULT time not saying anything or giving any clues away to anyone. Especially when they question me about it! I love my bf’s mom and family so I REALLY am bursting to tell her that it’s coming sooner than she expects. It’s looking like it’s going to be an even bigger surprise than we anticipated since she seems so eager about the topic recently. It’s good to have this forum space to tell people about our engagement plans, without having anyone that actually knows me personally find out about it yet; otherwise, I’m going to accidentally burst out with the news. I swear it feels like every day we wait for the e-ring to be delivered, feels like another year.
Anyone else dealing with something similar? How are you holding it together!? Feel free to fess up and decompress like I just did. Idk if I can make it another 2 weeks lol
