Ok I am in!! (OMG, did I need this!)
Only my bridesmaids and my mother know we have decided to get married and have gotten into the planning bit, so they have to hear about it constantly while i am waiting for him to ask so I can tell the world!! I can’t stop bugging him either…(which is probably why he hasn’t asked already!!)

Ahhhh! West Side Story! Love it! It’s totally perfect for this thread.
I’m still on the pact and doing great! I’ve been keeping myself busy as well – signing up for a sports team, some other work-related extra curriculars and whatnot. Maybe it will help Christmas come faster…. 😉

I’m back in because after returning from Hawaii, where we talked extensively about the future, i need a break from myself! My timeline was reconfirmed, so there is NO need to mention wedding stuff until March 26, 2013….so that’s the goal, but at least doing the pact lets me break it up into one week increments. So count me in, please!

okay, i am in!
I”m literally the worst, because I look at weddings all morning, every morning at work. We always talk guest list and logistics.

I’m in!! He promises that we will be engaged by the end of the year. Last night he slipped out and said December. I promise not to mention an engagement or a ring or marriage…for that matter.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: thanks! though, I need a demerit. I spent a lot of time on the bee and pinterest looking at weTding related stuff last night in front of SO. i even TOLD him that this is going to get me a demerit but that I didn’t even care. Something about PMS just makes my brain explode with marriage/engagement/wedding fever! Like… to the point I can’t sleep!

I did SO GOOD last night. I was on the verge of having a bad waiting day. Just when I was starting to think sour, evil thoghts I decided to look upon my baby. I was going to let the first thing he did decide how I would treat him for the rest of the night. And he pointed a roll of aluminum at me like he was chalaging me to a sword fight. I burst out laughing and my mood lightened up so much….Until on HIMYM (how i met your mother) Barney Proposed to Quin. It was a big to-do and I think my SO snapped.
SO: Is that what you’re gonna do, hunnie? You gonna plan everything out and tell me what to do?
I knew he was opening the door. So I took the advice I had seen here and told him.
Me: No…this is your show.”
…….Just please make sure I look pretty (so I know to do my nails at least! Maybe blow out my hair.)
SO: See, I can’t do that.
Me: You can’t give me anything?
Me: ok … I believe you…. I believe you.
Smoochies. I told him i would marry him without a ring, that I just need him to ask the question. He rightly called Bullshit. That he said that he already told me he wants to marry me, that I am the one who wants a ring. But that is because we need the 2 years to get our affairs in order! I caved… I caved and said “Is that so wrong? Does that make me bad?” and he said “No.”
We dropped the subject and started talking about other stuff. He didn’t even want me to leave the Kitchen to keep talking to him. That he wanted me to keep me company…I mean, How lucky am I?
He loves me. He wants to marry me. He wants to do right by me. And he is going to give me what I want because he loves me.
I love this man.. So yeah, shutting it up…

SO is making this so hard. He keeps dropping hints and waiting for my reaction. He keeps saying all these crazy and ridiculous ways he plans on purposing, and it gets so hard to just smile and be like “whatever you want to do…this is your show”
Now he was just being all sneaky with the computer so I asked him what he was doing, and he just said “it’s part of your big surprise” and he was talking to my best friend. Ah these last 3 months are going to be hard. I did good though and just passed it off after he said everything even though all I want to do is ask 100 questions.
Good luck everyone stay strong!

I’m in. I’ve been good about not bringing it up, but when he brought it up recently I made a complete idiot of myself.
Good luck ladies!

@linssi: The TV is talking to us! I swear I don’t have to say anything. Eventually something will be said on the TV that is exactly what I am thinking…and my SO knows it too!
@Regina Phalange: Zip it! Zip it Good! Zip it UP, You know you should!
@ravenxwonder: “It’s your show…” That’s what we just gotta keep on saying.

I am in ladies! I need something to “officially” keep me from blurting out stupid naggy stuff (especially after a few drinks – you know how it is!). We are moving in with each other a week on Monday which is a big step (been together 3 years and 3 months so feels like the right time) and my SO wanted to see how living with each other goes before we get engaged. So… I just need to concentrate on moving and being happy and seeing what happens. Here goes shutting up! x
