We are off on a 5 week trip around Europe in a few weeks (YAY!) and while we are away we will both have birthdays. My boy was asking last night what I wanted for my birthday and I just looked at him and said “Well, we are going around Europe so thats going to cost a lot PLUS I have a pretty big present coming to me too.”
He has had my engagement ring since March so he had better be planning to give it to me at some stage in the 5 weeks away!
He definately knew what I was getting at and he thankfully just laughed.

LOL! that is awesome. That is pretty much what I said when we went on our trip that we got engaged at. Later I found out that he had to rush to call my dad for my hand (we live far away, no time ot ask in person) and hurry up the jewler who was custom making my ring just to be able to ask me on our trip. He said he knew he would be in trouble if we went home not engaged. LOL

haha Nothing like a trip to spur them into action!!
I dont think he even realises the amount of trouble he will be in if he doesn’t propose on the trip! I dont think I can deal with the questions of everyone who is expecting it to happen!

Ugh. I just got back from a romantic little vacation with my SO and right before we left I/we figured out that the ring would not be ready (well really the stone picked out…he already has the ring! ..a little hurtful because if he really wanted it to be ready, I feel like he would have figured out a way to do it like @bestbuddies:‘s guy did). Wahh….So especially upsetting because I kept telling people that this is probably the vacation! So it’s embarrassing to come back without anything! My parents were pretty shocked actually. Oh well..
Ok that was my little rant, haha.
But soooo super exciting for you! And also, anytime I have a bday/Xmas/V-Day/Easter/WHATEVER coming up and he asks what I would like, I always just give him the look that says it all:
“You know very damn well what I want”

@CupcakeLove: I am very jealous of your trip, you’ll have a great time regardless but for his sake I hope he does! 😉
@shinythingsrule: Aww! *hugs* 🙁

@shinythingsrule: aww so sorry he didn’t do it on your trip!! Thats exactly what I am worried about – EVERYONE knows he has a ring (he told everyone – not me!) and so everyone has assumed it will happen.
If it doesnt happen I will be so embarassed because i dont want to deal with the ‘looks’ from people
