    I have already given up TV! I haven’t had cable in over 6.5 years. I have Netflix and I watch youtube regularly, if that counts, I suppose. If I had to give something else up it would be certain foods. I am already dieting to lose weight/get healthier (and in prep for engagement/wedding pics ;D) so it wouldn’t be hard to give some more stuff up completely.

    Looks like the formatting is fixed now ๐Ÿ™‚

    I could easily give up lima beans ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hey – it was an option!

    Assuuuuuming the choices are delectable ones, probably beer. I enjoy it and I’d miss it, but I wouldn’t be heartbroken.


    I tried to think of what could be ‘other’, and thought of clothing, accessories, and realized I could never give up jeans of comfy sweatpants.. or makeup, or high heels. I’d give up wine before mascara!

    ElephantAndTheFlea:  Me too! I’m such a “cut the cord” snob! The BF had cable when we met, but I got him on board pretty quickly. Neither of us could go back to paying for TV!

    I’m excited to be on the list and feel like others are in my situation! My friends are all either married or single and think I’m nuts. 

    He said he’s picked out the ring and he’s planning to propose this summer! It didn’t sound like he had bought it yet, but I do think he’s planning on getting one of the rose gold morganites from deBebians I showed him in January! He said it takes 3 weeks, so I should plan on this summer (which is the deBebians timeline!).  YAY!

    I chose alcohol,although I kinda cheated a bit since I havnt had a drink in 5 years! 


    Holding strong at 32! I’m so hoping it will be soon. We have just moved and are living on our own now. I stumbled across the ring box in the process of moving, used all of my willpower to close the drawer and walk away without peeping! 

    And congrats to all the newly engaged bee’s!

    I chose alcohol, but that’s a bit of a cheat option as I don’t drink to begin with haha.

    Oooo 122 one of my luck numbers! any number with 22 is my lucky number though haha 

    i voted that I would get rid of tv, I have had it the last few years but for years before that I didn’t have it didnt have netflix either so I went without any shows! I think I have finally convinced my SO to get rid of cable because we can stream anything we want online.
