Woot! I’m in! I’ve been doing pretty good even though BFF’s bridal shower is this weekend and I’m in full crafting mode. SO has been so awesome lately. We went to the Pomona Art Walk to see my friend’s art show and I was just so glad I found someone who is not only WILLING to go to things like that with me, but actually enjoys them. I think the SIUP is helping me just really enjoy where our relationship is right now. hile I do look forward to being his wife someday, I am really loving being his girlfriend right now.

I’m trying VERY hard not to bomb on the Pact this week. 

 

This weekend, we attended a couples shower for good friends. After we left, I asked my boyfriend what he thought of it.  He said “it was cool. Definitely makes me excited for when that’s us.”  As he should know by now, if you give me an inch i’ll take a mile, and I took that as my oppertunity to get him to take me to look at dresses :-p (he humors me with this weekly, I’m just not allowed to try on).

 

Compounding my difficulties, we are both big fans of “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” on TLC, and everytime we watch it I sit and moan about how much I want a “blingy” dress….and everytime he says back “then call that Sondra Celli lady and see what her wait list is like!”

 

So he’s really not helping me out with shutting up. 

 

This week will be especially hard becuase he took it upon himself to tell me he’s going to the jeweler on Thursday or Friday during work.

My So doesn’t know about the pact, but he’s still testing my limits by mentioning marriage and rings at which time i change the subject. lol It is defintely reducing stress for him tho so sign me back up this week! 🙂

I’m in again! I did a good job last week even though I was feeling down last night. I seem to be going through waves of “at peace” and anxious/depressed every few days.

I did really well this week. considering I just threw my friend’s Bridal Shower on Saturday. it’s so hard to Shut it up, when I’ve been helping my friend plan her wedding for the past 8 months. I’ll be glad when her day in june is over. so weddings won’t be on my mind so much.

@Mz_HyProfyl:  We’re in the same boat! My BFF’s shower is this weekend and she’s getting married June 1. I’ll be SOOO glad when it’s over. Well…. I’ll have a break anyway. She’s having a big reception in October and I’m helping with that too 😛

Sign me up for this week as well! This is my third SIUP week, and I’m doing well! I also noticed that my SO is the one bringing it up now. Since I started this three weeks ago, he told me that he has a “proposal date set in stone whether he talks to my dad or not and to not worry, b/c it’s within my timeline (of 2013).” Yay!
