- Wedding: November 2014
Hey fellow bees… it’s been a little while since I’ve posted, but boy have I made some waiting progress!
To recap: My boy and I have been dating a year and a quarter (as of today!), we live together, and we’ve been talking marriage since about month 4. I’m 25, he’s 32. We’re both performers/ actors, not a ton of income but we do okay.
So, updates: It all began with SO’s mom coming to town. They speak to each other in Vietnamese, so I don’t understand most of what they’re saying. While she was visiting, they would wake up early every morning to spend some mom/son time with each other. He was cryptic about what they had discussed.
Later, after she left, he (after a few drinks) told me that A) their main topic of conversation was him proposing(!!!) B) She said if the ring was the only thing holding him up, she has some beautiful family rings we could look at. Apparently her quote was, “don’t keep a wonderful woman like that waiting. She’s amazing, and if you put her off too long you’ll lose her!” and C) He showed her the Wedding Pinterest board that we share (but I mostly pin on, lol). They looked at some of the rings I pinned, and she said she had ones in a similar style, but with better diamonds! Eeep!
The only downside of this is that SO is complaining that ever since he expressed to his mom that he wanted to (eventually) get married to me, she has been putting the pressure on, yo! Like, HARD. He complains about it to me, too. What makes me feel like he’s not totally freaking out, though, is the fact that he always reassures his mom that it’s going to happen, just not right this minute, haha.
Although we don’t have a firm timeline, we have been talking way more openly about specific wedding plans (our friends joke that he’s totally going to be a Groomzilla! Haha). He asked how long it would take me to plan a wedding– I said 9 months- a year. He mentioned a tentative trip to Scotland next year, and suggested it for a honeymoon! That’s the closest I’ve come to a timeline so far, besides the SOON some of you have heard all to many times, I’m sure. 😉
Anyway, thanks for letting me go on in my excitedness! All of this, of course, has made me even more obsessed, gah!!!
