So I think I’m going to try this this week! Actually I’m tired of thinking about wedding stuff myself. I don’t think I bother him too much with stuff (we’re eloping so there aren’t many details), but he has helped me pick a dress, we’ve decided on a venue, ive picked my ring and he’s picked his. I’m going to try and hold off bringing anything else up until he actually proposes. It’s going to be challenging because he’s nosey and I’m a planner

I just found this!!! I am so in. Not sure how I am going to hide my Pinterest Wedding Porn Addiction – but I will try.

Question though – if he has no idea what the Wedding Bee boards are – and therefore has no reaosn to ‘make a face’ can I still surf when he is home? (As long as I keep my mouth shut?)

I’ve been visiting my SO all weekend, and have been trying to keep the pact and HE won’t stop talking about marriage + honeymoon stuff AND of course his fear of commitment. As in, “Oh, it would be so great to go to X for our honeymoon.” 5 min later. “Sorry for talking about honeymoons; don’t mean to lead you on.” Gah. I have no idea what to make of all that. I am just trying to play it cool.

This is so useful since I finally decided on my centerpiece idea last week – created a mock-up and then mass texted the picture to all of my sisters, brother (he’s helping purchase/find the antiques) and my mum. …but seriously, what is *wrong* with me?!

Also the Fiance had to sit there and watch my desperate attempts to create something I liked right on the kitchen table.

Bright side is I am one big step closer?

I’m in again– I was naughty this week! I’m back to the grad school-commuting lifestyle again after a nice long break when I got to be at home with my SO for 6 whole weeks. Now I’m home weekends and at school/my apartment 3 hours from home during the week again. . . and I thought that would make it EASIER to shut it up but nooo. . . it doesn’t. I think about getting engaged all week and then I come home and things pop out of my mouth! AAGH!

I am still thinking about what to say when I do formally bring it up after the 4-year anniversary of when we met (near the end of the month); I feel we need to have a serious conversation about it. I need to know if he wants to get married in the next 2-3 years, like I do, and I need to tell him I feel like our relationship needs to progress, and see what the hold-up is for him. I’m totally chicken of talking about it like that, though, thus the planned time for bringing it up and the attempt to hint less. Hints just pop out of my mouth, though– I seem to have less control than I’d like!

This time it was mentioning that my 92-year-old grandmother, who I visited a few days ago and who has bouts of being off in another world and not knowing what’s going on, as well as times when she is perfectly lucid and observant, noticed the silver and tourmaline ring on my left middle finger and said something about it (“oh, you have a ring!”). Uh, no, it’s a ring I bought myself years ago. :/ My father just said something like that last month, about the same damn ring. And then that made me ask my SO if his family has said things to him about the progression of our relationship, like mine has. They haven’t. And I said it was a good thing his mother hadn’t said anything because when his mother nags him about things he tends to do the opposite! He didn’t take that especially well– I think he was irked by that comment, and it was awkward. Bleh.

So you see how badly I need this pact again! Shutting it up for another week if I possibly can!
