@blueberries123:  It is the hardest part. He probably just has something special planned, and doesn’t want to ruin the surprise by talking about it. In the meantime, keep your nails pretty and try to focus your attention elsewhere Smile

@blueberries123:  I totally understand- we booked our venues & photographer before he got the ring as well & it does make it awkward to explain to friends/family. It is frustrating but let me tell you that as soon as you stop thinking about it – that’s when it’ll show up. I started painting my nails weekly (which i almost never do) & he noticed and my ring showed up less than a month later!  

Go get yourself some new books, take up baking (those cupcakes look yummy) or knitting, do all that crap you did as a little girl that you don’t have time for now (long bubble baths, diy face masks, deep condition your hair)… It’s all about keeping your mind elsewhere- especially since it sounds like you’re very close!

The most important part is underway, which is his intention to marry you. You set a date, and booked the church — that is something to be excited about! However, waiting for a ring is really difficult, but I imagine that he just wants everything to be “perfect” in his eyes, and because it’s such a sentimental moment you will remember for the rest of your life, he wants to make sure that he does it in the “correct” way, at the “correct” time.

Sometimes these things are out of his control.  If your ring is being made right now, or resized, or whatever, there is absolutely nothing he can do to make it go faster.  He’s probably just as antsy as you to get engaged formally right now.

This exact same thing happened to me when I got engaged! In the end my ring wasn’t even in for my engagement party because the jewlery store he purchased it from made a mistake! I was so beyond frustrated but when the ring finally came it was SO worth the wait ๐Ÿ™‚

@blueberries123:  YAY! Light at the end of the tunnel is so good! I cannot wait for you!!

Things are going well! We have chosen the date June 7 2014 and booked a family farm to have our reception at. I will start doing other things like looking for a dress (!!!!) in the new year. We have so much time that we will just get through the holidays and go from there !

I hope you are doing well!!!

@blueberries123:  Has it happened yet? I am waiting as well, even though the ring has been picked out as well and the date set (by me) :).
