My SO and I were talking the other day and he asked me when I wanted to have our kids. I told him that we would have to be married first and I would like a year married before kids came along. We’re 27 and I would like to have the first one on or before 30 so it doesn’t leave us much time. He said he wanted that too and we started to talk about when we shoud get married and I said spring 2012, which sounded good to him too. So then we talked about getting engaged and I said I wanted it to happen by August since that’s would be our 7 year anniversary and I don’t want to wait longer than that. He said okay and he would take my mom shopping with him since she knows what I like. I know it’s weird he would take my mom instead of me but I think he wants it to be a total surprise for me. So, it’ wasn’t much progress on waiting but it was something. Just wanted to share with your ladies. Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving 🙂
Sorry, didn’t realize how long this got:/

I think that’s great news. Discussing timelines and making plans are huge steps in the waiting process. I agree with Peepstobee sounds like you both have great communication between you, and I’m sure your mom will do a swell job!

Thanks ladies 🙂 My mom and I have looked at styles on the net and a little bit in stores so she knows what I like and don’t like. He knows that my only real “rule” is that it not be yellow gold. No offense to anyone who may have a yellow gold ring, it’s just not my particular style. Other than that I would prefer a round diamond but that isn’t set in stone. I would love any ring from him.
