    Wow! Lots of action these past two weeks! Congratulations, bees!

    As for the poll, Fiance is not the romantic kind. Either he’ll probably just take me out to a restaurant and ask or he could do it while on the toilet. Who knows? I wouldn’t mind and don’t expect anything elaborate lol. Planning of anything is mostly left to me. I just hope that when we he proposes (no matter how unromantic the fashion) that he does it somewhere pretty. Pictures would be nice, but I think thats unlikely.

    My nails are never painted so that isn’t a factor but I would like him on one knee.

    Still #35… Expecting it in September or October now, but I know he’s saving money actively and he keeps talking about the incoming proposal πŸ™‚ How he can’t wait, as soon as he has the money, so excited to do it, has ideas on how he’s gonna do it, etc. We weren’t on different pages before, but it seems we’re in the same paragraph now πŸ˜‰ He seems so excited and I am too!

    I do my own nails so they’re pretty much always done and looking pretty good, and of course I want him down on one knee! I’d love for it to be in front of our closest friends at a big party of some sort! I’m hoping for Halloween secretly πŸ˜‰

    • Wedding: September 2017

    We have 3 dogs and I’d love for them to be incorporated and I’d love for someone to take pictures. I was hoping it was going to be at Mount Rushmore, a couple weeks ago, I don’t know how he could possible beat that view πŸ˜‰ but I hope he tries!

    I work at a hospital as a tech, so my nails have to be short and no gel polish. Regular polish I chip as soon as I leave the house so I’ve given up on my nails looking good!

    mrs.akjp:  weeellll, I wanted it in April, but things didn’t go as planned lol. I’m happy whenever, and with how he’s talking, it will definitely be before halloween, but if he’s gonna wait that long (either because he wants to or it takes that long to have enough for my ring) he’d better make it good! πŸ˜‰

    That someone is there to video record or photograph it and he gets down on ones knee. Bonus- him saying sweet things versus just asking the question. 

    My ex didn’t do any of those and I always felt jipped with that proposal.

    Congrats to the engaged bees!!!

    I want to be added to the list!!!

    I’m with my man for 3 and a half years (I’m 2 months short of 24, he’s one year older than me). I proposed that he’d propose last September and I’m waiting since then. I thought it would be pointless for me to join when my proposal is just around the corner since he has told me a month ago that the jeweler has his moissanite already (we agreed on it both but I’ve never seen it and he accidentaly told me that he already has it), but I came to a realisation yesterday that it won’t happen on out trip to Sardinia next week because he still doesn’t have the ring! I have some mourning to do on that, hopes completely shattered… The waiting is always picking at my brain, I can’t even concentrate at work and I spend 30% of my time on these boards!

    My ideal proposal is in a nice scenery place, completely just the two of us, he says some sweet romantic words to me and is romantic AF, gets down on one knee and pops the question – PERFECT!
