So exciting.  Just enjoy this time.  Since he is clearly excited about it and moving in the right direction, leave the topic alone unless he brings it up.  Sounds like he has some awesome plans and you’ll both probably enjoy it more if you are surprised!  If he asks you to get up super early to go on a hot air balloon ride, do it!!! πŸ˜€

InspieLass:  I’m going to be a teeny bit of a downer – My advice is as promising as everything sounds, try to enjoy the trip as it is.  If you’re constantly thinking ‘is it going to be now?’ you’ll miss everything else (and be really really disappointed if for some reason it doesn’t happen.

I was with DH for 8.5 years before he proposed, I was ‘waiting’ for 6.  I ruined a lot of great things for myself constantly wondering if it would be today.  Guys can be funny.  DH got super excited about his present for me for our 5th anniversary telling me that I’d love it, no way I wouldn’t like it and so on.  We’d talked about getting married quite a few times, he’d moved cross country with me the year before….he bought me pillows.  Really nice pillows…but they were pillows.

I definitely agree with MsGinkgo and was in the same position so I will also be cautiously excited for you! πŸ™‚ Have a great time on your trip regardless. Oh, and my bff and I were waiting at the same time and got engaged 1 month apart! I think our fiances knew that they had to keep the engagements close together to avoid any kind of mental breakdowns from one of us haha. πŸ˜‰ If she’s not currently waiting you might be driving her a little nuts so good call coming to the bee!

Ha your story made me existed so I can only imagine how you feel! You’ve got to be cool though! I’m sure he’s both existed and stressed out right about now so if you started acting anyway other than the normal amount of exited for what admittedly sound like an awesome trip you might tip him off. The best part is how he clearly is trying to surprise you so let him damn it lol! 

MsGinkgo: Okay the pilllow story made me laugh, although at the time I’m sure it was anything but funny. I hope you gave him a good wack with it

InspieLass:  I agree with others…don’t get yourself TOO excited just incase it isn’t what he’s planning. You wouldn’t want to be disappointed in a nice trip if it doesn’t. But I agree with you that it definitely sounds like a possibility!

My suggestion on the nails is to make plans with a friend. Then it doesn’t look like it’s just you wanting to get them done…but a friend wanted you to go with her! πŸ™‚

Good luck and keep us posted!!
