    HBanan:  congrats!!!

     

    Well i should be able to be pretty good for the bext few days. My mom and I are going on vacation. I’m really hoping my SO will take this opportunity with me out of the house to go talk to my dad (he insists). I really hope it happens this month. He works every weekend in september so we won’t have any time off together that entire month, which means I don’t think it’ll happen in septemeber, and if it doesn’t happen in august then its october, which isn’t that far but seems like forever!!! We’ve already discussed a fall wedding next year and that we want about a year engagement so it has to be soon right?? Lol

    I’m all in over here πŸ™‚ I believe the ring is purchased and now i’m just (not-so) patiently waiting! While I believe the proposal is coming soon, anything to keep my mind off of this, and just let it come as a suprise without any added pressure for my future Fiance, would be helpful. <br /><br />So hey, fellow waiting bees!

    Had a very good weekend, and haven’t mentioned anything.  Yesterday morning I got a call from my son from boot camp a week early.  Totally surprised, although heartbreaking cause he is so homesick.  Then later yesterday went to BF’s house and he told me to go check out one of the closets in his bedroom.  He had worked all morning on cleaning it out completely so it can be my future closet πŸ™‚  Then this morning, he was telling me how he’ll move his office stuff upstairs to his man cave so we can convert it to one of the kids’ bedrooms!  My heart melted, and I think I started crying AGAIN!  Still I haven’t mentioned a word!

    This is genius! I’ve known he has the ring for 3 weeks now and trying to keep mute about it is damn near impossible. Glad to know other bees are here to help. I haven’t talked about anything wedding related in 3 days now! Wahoo. Lets hope he pops the question soon! (For all of us waiting bees)

    It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, so here’s the update! I’ve been doing really well with keeping quiet, but it was a hard day for waiting. Three people I graduated with got married this weekend and my GF’s cousin got engaged this weekend. I’m super excited and happy for them, but it’s making waiting harder because Girlfriend told me that we would be getting engaged around the same time as them! So I’m really trying to just buckle down and get through this month. I know it won’t happen until after we move, so here’s to hoping for September!

    Okay, I had to come out of LurkZone for this one lol.

    Few weeks ago my BF randomly walked me into the jewelry store to have my finger sized. Last week he let me know that he began doing his ring research and knew which ones he liked the best now it’s just a matter of narrowing it down/saving up for it. Yesterday we ran into some people from his old church and introduced me as his gf/soon to be wife πŸ˜€

    It’s happening I just don’t know when. That’s why I’ve been stalking the wedding boards like crazy in effort not to drive everyone around me nuts. Its been such a long road I love him so much.

    Thanks for listening/reading

    This post is so perfect!!! My SO lives up in Oregon, while I am in NorCal. I am going up to visit him in about 2 weeks and I can’t wait, since the last time I saw him was 4th of July weekend. I SOOOO want to get engaged when I’m up there, BUT his cousin is getting married that weekend (hence the reason why I am going up there in the first place). I do not want to be that girl that totally steals a brides thunder by getting engaged 2 days before her wedding. That would not be cool. At all. Anywho, I am very thankful for the site, since it helps me get over myself and be patient πŸ™‚

    I’ve remained quiet. However, he made it very difficult by sending me this picuture:

     I’ve behaved! I swear I have!

    Squirrelz15:  RIGHT? He picked it up a few days ago and is just as excited as I am about it! I’m just sitting here thinking, “don’t send pictures, just put it on my finger!” Lol.

    CEM16:  It’s beautiful!! Hopefully he puts that on your finger soon! My BF recently decided to start calling me Mrs.(HisLastName)…. it’s killing me not to say anything. I know he has the ring, but at least i don’t know what it looks like πŸ™‚ Good luck, lady πŸ™‚

    This is a photo that I took 5 weeks ago (on our 3 year anniversary we went ring “looking” )  I told him this was THE ONE, only I want but in yellow gold (so hard to find right now) .  Went in to work today after my long birthday weekend and had several people look at my left hand. Agony! You bees and my pictures of *my ring*  are helping a ton. 

    Hugs to everyone waiting!
