@MissAmethyst: Oh no! Try to not be bummed about your 18 year old cousin getting engaged before you–Honestly, in this day, seems a little young to be getting engaged IMO. Just know that when it happens for you it’ll be when the time is right!
Congrats again on your engagement!
Thanks for you encouragement–I remember when I struggled to shut it up for days at a time/week as well. Now I simply don’t even want to talk about it anymore lol!
Can’t wait to hear your proposal story, because it does sound like it’ll be ‘very soon’! How exciting!
I don’t think that you broke the pact at all. Good job keeping it quiet!
SO is expected to graduate in April BUT….He was supposed to graduate in Dec 2012……and the idea was always that he’d graduate, we’d move, get engaged, married, etc….but it really set me up for a let down so to speak because obviously, I thought we’d at least be engaged by now and we it could be further away. My goal is to be free of expectations of the future. I will check to see if you posted your other thread-but do you mean they want you to wait or want you do get married asap?
You are in! Welcome to the shut it up pact!
I’ve heard of a lot of bees doing something similar to this as far as hinting for the ring they would like
Hopefully you can narrow down a cut or style that you prefer to make it easier on your guy!
Day 32 I think–I do not remember if I had time to check in yesterday (I think I did!). Busy at work for me and it makes it more challenging to check in.
SO is being pretty strict lately about wanting to watch his ‘diet’ and that’s the big update in our lives right now lol. For the first time yesterday I made speghetti squash in place of pasta and made a bolognese sauce that I got out of cooking light-It was very tasty! I’m just trying to enjoy the time that we have together as it seems that SO could be leaving for his internship soon, however, we do not have a set ‘date’ for him to depart, could be at any moment, and all I can really do at this point is relish the small moments.
For the most part-It’s the first weekend after the holidays and I’m *hoping* for a relaxing weekend, but, we have more friends to check in with that we didn’t get to see for Xmas. LOL.
How’s everyone else doing?!?!?
