It is time to see who can make it to the end of the week without a single peep about Rings/engagement/wedding/marraige to their SO’s.
Here are the rules/exceptions:
This is only good for our SO’s. But If you are feeling the need to ‘Shut It Up’ infront of other people then please share.
If our SO’s mention Rings/engagement/wedding/marraige first then we have the right to respond, but for Pete’s sake, Be Cool About It!
My SO and I just got back from a wedding on Saturday and my birthday this sunday. Not a word out of my mouth about Rings/engagement/wedding/marraige! Woohoo! We looked great and I was smoking Hawt at the wedding, and so was my SO. We had a great weekend.
But here sit he tuff part. Our 5th Anniversary is this sunday and I want to make it to the end of the week with some dignity. We have had amazing progress and I think he knows the ring he wants to get me but i know him buying the ring and a proposal is still 3-5 months away so I have to be cool.
This week my wonderful SO is taking me to see Incubus & Linkin Park at Jones beach with our friends that just got married. Super cool. He also convinced me to take the next day off, which worked out well because it turns up an awesome auditon is that day and I just became free to attend it. WOOHOO.
Then Sunday, the Anniversay. I work in Central Park and am taking him to a sweet little spot in the Rambles overlooking Bethesda Fountain for a picknic. To get there he is going to have to pass the area him and I want to have our wedding cerimony (Belvadere Castle & The Shakespeare Garden). I wont be with him and will be meeting him at the spot. I will have chalk markings to let him know which way to go. He’s getting the food and I am getting the wine and desert.
Wish me luck and good luck to all the bees who want to ‘Shut It Up!’

@Sapphire-Dreamer: Happy belated birthday! It sounds like you have a ton of stuff going on this weekend, which will be awesome and challenging at the same time! Your anniversary idea sounds so sweet and fun!
This week I FINALLY GET TO SEE MY SO AGAIN! It’s been six weeks since I last saw him, and 12 weeks since we began our summer LDR. We’re both ready for it to be over. I’m much better about not bringing up engagement stuff when I’m with him versus when we’re apart and I don’t get to talk to him as much as I’d like to. I’m flying down to meet him in Lafayette for a few days, and then we’re going to Destin for a long weekend! I can’t wait!

I am so glad this is starting today – we were at the mall over the weekend. Bad place for waiting bees. BAD. We had a mini “discussion” (ahem) after the third jewelry store we passed without him saying a word. Then he dipped me in the mall… It was cute and romantical and we went on about our day, lol. I am going to shut up this week about anything marriage related!

Im joining in on this. I didn’t bring up anything engagement related this past weekend — hmm well no serious discussions anyway but I did drop few major hints I wonder if those count? lol
Well this week I promise myself and to all of you bees i will say nothing. zero. zip!!

yes. I am in the this pact. Hanging out with married friends may be awesome an subliminal message even though i’m sure that’s NOT why you picked them for the concert, just sayin’…also GREAT marriage spot, belvedere castle is soooo romantic and the shakespeare garden is just perfect.

My SO made me promise to “trust him” and not bring it up for ONE MONTH! Ugh.. So I will gladly join the pact!

@Sapphire-Dreamer: I’m in! My ring might be getting delivered this week (eek!) and I have got to just shut up and stay cool for however long it takes him to pop the question. Good luck!!! And happy anniversary

@Sweetheartchic: My SO has asked me to trust him as well. So I am doing my best. That mean, to me, putting my faith in him and the knowledge that he DOES want to marry me. And last night we was so sweet to me.
We can do it!
@discodance: Thanks for the wishes! Its great that you will get to spend time with your SO after so long w/o him.
@mrs_pudding_pop: He dipped you in the mall? Like to kiss? THAT IS SO SWEET! I was thinking of thinking of an excusse for us to go to the mall so we pass by stores, but I am too afraid

@fingerscrossed: lol. I didn’t know they were coming until the recent groom told me at his wedding they were going. I do not think we are going together but we may be coming back together. But yes, hanging out with married people is good for my SO I think.
@crosscountry09: Oh the real waiting has begun! You can do it. Just be cool and keep it sexy. That’s my advice for always. When in doubt, look Hawt & keep it sexy.

I’m defintely joining this. Even though SO told me to show him rings I liked, I’m not saying a word wedding/marriage/ring related for the next week after our extensive two talks both Thursday and Friday night.
Plus on top of it, we had a WONDERFUL weekend together & we didn’t even do anything special. He put up shelves around the house, we cooked together all weekend, we watched a hilarious movie, went out one night for drinks, we just REALLY enjoyed each other companies & I think it was because we finally had these talks and we both now know we are on the exact same page, no less or no more, and it feels great. He said to me several times this weekend, “This was a really good weekend, I really enjoyed myself.” I felt the exact same way. There is comfort in knowing your partner is just as ready as you, you can sit down and relax, enjoy the ride. I even got in the shower this morning with an erasable message on the mirror, “I love you baby, have a good day!” So sweet.
Point is though, I’m going to enjoy the ride for a bit. If he brings it up, okay, I’ll talk. Otherwise, I’m keeping quiet!

Shutting it! Of course I won’t see him much this week, which will make it way easier.
Post # 13
I’m in!! I didn’t mention it today at all! So I’m ready to do it for a whole week!! (hopefully) Good luck ladies!

I’m in! I’m in a good place with this waiting thing finally, and so now that I’m feeling much more sure that he’s on the same page, I hope I can keep quiet for a little while, enjoy things, and just let everything take it’s course.

Good luck! I need to join, haha. I’ve got weddings on the brain. We just attended a weekend of wedding festivities. After the wedding, a group went out, where my SO proceeded to tell me all about how the DJ at our wedding will be better and how he’s going to personally transcribe a song-by-song playlist for the guy. I can’t stand the waiting! I held my tongue and didn’t say anything, but just had happy thoughts on the inside that he actually DOES think about our future wedding. =) Ok, back to keeping mouth shut.

@Sapphire-Dreamer: I agree, it is just really hard for me to believe things unless they are actually happening. Also I know he hasn’t bought a ring yet. It is really hard not to bring it up because we started planning for 11/02/13.
You’re right though. We CAN do it. That is why we have the Bee (to vent).
