Leaving for our vacation tomorrow. Wish my luck and strength. My hopes are still trying to get up but I’m trying my best to ignore it and enjoy our vacation. I aim to not mention a thing unless he brings it up.

Well, I’m back down to about 12 hours of SIU and most of that was due to being asleep :/ We went to a soccer game yesterday with some other couples and I would not shut up about weddings! I don’t think I was the person who initially brought it up but for the love of God I wouldn’t stop! My SO grew up in England and I had read a thread on the Bee about the difference between UK and US weddings and I just felt like everyone should know about them! Then I continued to bring it up on the drive home. It was ridiculous. ::sigh:: Ok well I’m back on it and I will do better this time!

Please can I join the SIU as a waiting bee?

I’ve picked out my engagement ring with my SO and I can’t seem to shut up about it! 

He’s said he’ll propose between October 2014 and April 2015 and I just need help being quiet until it happens xx

I was pretty good on my visit with my friend, and we had a great time together. I think some of her other friends have talked her ear off about wedding plans and babies, and she is sick of hearing about that stuff.

I leave tomorrow afternoon for my vacation with my SO, and just have this really strong feeling that he could propose. There will be plenty of other things to talk about and enjoy, and I am thrilled to finally get a vacation after years of not being able to afford one. If he doesn’t propose, I’ll still have a great trip, but if he is going to propose, I hope it’s early on in the vacation so I don’t have to keep wondering about it.

So, I’m back! We talked, we went ring shopping, and he bought it that day and its in the house. He wants to talk to my parents before he makes it official and I’m like, go now go now go now!!!! I want my sparkly. I am completely in love with that ring, and my SO as well of course :-P, and its totally not what I thought I would pick out but once I had it on I just knew and now I need to shut it up until he does it. I told him if we went shopping he couldn’t make me wait long, and he said he wouldn’t but I want it right now!!!!! So i need to rejoin this SIUP…

BrownPlaidBook:  probablyweeks, but hopefully not many!! It is a solitaire with a wrap which makes it look like a 3 stone with a split shank. The ctr stone is a 3/4 ct diamond. He spent far more than I expected or needed, but I love it. I will post pictures once I’m engaged. He told me no pictures! Ahhhhh so excited!!

hey guys, I want to join the SIUP this week for sure! I just found out that my boyfriend has picked out a ring that he thinks I will love, and he is planning to propose in the next few months! He has not officially bought the ring yet as he is working to set up a payment plan… But I know it’s coming soon now and I’m so excited and need to SIUP for the next few months until that time comes!
