    I love weddings!

    I want babies!

    My SO rocks, I just wanna be with my SO forever!

    The ring has been purchased! WHERE IS MY BLING!!

    I do NOT want to deal with wedding drama. Being SOs is awesome.

    MissZ31:  having running water definitely makes life easier. If you don’t you will need to bring with you all the water you will need for drinking and cooking(do not forget for cooking as well). That said, vault toilets you don’t need special parts fro. Its literally a toilet on top of a hole in the ground. So you will have a place to sit. Its kinda like a porta potty. the more primitive can be fun because you have more alone and get to enjoy the quiet. But conveniece definitely has its perks. Feel free to ask me any questions. I have done most types of camping at some point in my life.

    I kinda failed at this pact, but I really feel that if I wasn’t a part of this pact I wouldn’t shut up about it. So I try not to give myself to hard of a time with my slip ups!!

    BrownPlaidBook:  that’s so exciting for his brother and soon to be Fiance. That’s awesome that you can tell someone about your ideal ring without breaking the pact. I’m glad you are able to enjoy your waiting time 🙂

    Well, I for one can’t wait for the new pact to begin, I need a fresh start! I was looking on When Geeks Wed last night and showed my SO a few things I thought were fun/unique. We watched a proposal video on there and he said the guy must have had a big budget to do that so I said, “You just have to have connections and you can get people to help you out if you tell them you are going to propose to your GF” And he was like, “Oh is that how you do it? Dropping hints, huh?!” I was like “No! I’m just saything that’s probably what that guy did”  

    Also, with my birthday coming up he asked me to create a wishlist cause he is very hit or miss if left to his own devices. Of course I put my dream ring on there… but I put a lot of other stuff on there too because I know he won’t be proposing for my birthday. But at least if it stays on the list he won’t have to ask me about it later and it truely will be a surprise whenever he is ready to pop the question!

    I mostly followed the pact. The most shcking part was I actually followed the wedding show mandate, which I thought would be the hardest! My only violation was asking if I needed to sign for any packages this week, as I am on break and the Boyfriend or Best Friend works all day. Sadly, I do not think that the ring will arrive on the original date promised.. Fighting disappointment, because I know it’s the price to pay when one uses a custom vendor.

    @Squirrelz15: Don’t feel too bad about slip ups! Keeping busy helped me immensly.

    Vanderpants: any recommendations for wedding shows? On netflix maybe? 

     yes i’m trying to keep busy. Though not to busy because I want to spend time with my SO before he heads out of town for almost a week. I need to SIUP though because I really think he’s planning to do it before he leaves for his trip. EEP!!

    BrownPlaidBook:  I’ve done really well for once.  We are going out tonight to celebrate his dad’s estate finally closing….so no more lawyers :)…..so tonight will be hard, but I’ve refused to mention it lately so hopefully I’ll stick to that after a glass or two of wine.  Probably not, but I’ll try.

    Squirrelz15:  Yay!!! Here’s hoping! 

    Well, my favorites on Netflix are Four Weddings, Say Yes to the Dress, and SYttD: Atlanta. If you get cable, TLC does a Friday Night Bride Night special every week. I used to always binge watch that with my girlfriends.

    spazzychica:  When he asked what  I wanted for ym birthday I said “You know what I want.” He said ” I know. A ring. Now what else.”

    He knows me too well.

    Squirrelz15:  I’ve been watching Bridezillas and Say Yes to the Dress. I like Four Weddings but it seems so unfair to pair up a 10k wedding to a 100k wedding. Now I’m not saying there is anything wrong with a cheaper wedding. But most likely a wedding where there is a family style buffet vs a served surf and turf meal, who is more likely to get points in that category( depending on how it tastes)?
