I’ve never been a patient person, but this is driving me batty! My guy and I are ‘getting engaged’ soon, which basically means the only thing holding us back from ‘being engaged’ is saving for the ring. He is starting a new job next week and will be making enough money at that point to put money aside for the ring that I picked out (I actually picked out 2 very different ones, one I secretly liked more and he picked the same one). I know exactly what I’m getting, I just don’t know exactly WHEN hahaha. I’m not really interested in a surprise or romantic proposal, as much as I love reading all of your stories, it’s just not me. We’re simple people, we don’t go out to fancy places, we’d much rather spend an evening at home with our dog watching TV…I have a feeling that once the ring comes in (it’ll be a special order) we’ll just be engaged with no questions LOL. Also, we’re planning on a VERY small ceremony with a Justice of the Peace or a trip to city hall, and then next year celebrating with a BBQ type ‘reception’ in a town park. No frills, because that’s just not our style (again, as much as I absolutely LOVE seeing your pics and ideas!!). Every day I look at pictures of my soon to be ring and envision it on my finger and I’m pretty sure that is NOT helping me LOL. Anyhoo, I’m waiting waiting waiting (as patiently as I can, but we both now I’m chomping at the bit and he thinks it’s amusing) and can’t wait to post pics for everyone!!! How did you all get through THIS part???
