    Cross #126 off the list — I am officially engaged!

    We’d eaten at this taqueria on the south side of Chicago for lunch and then gone into Wicker Park to shop and have some coffee at Wormhole. I went to the bathroom in Wormhole and came out and he was on his phone freaking out … and told me we had to go back to the taqueria because he accidentally threw away something very important. It was in a little pouch in his pocket and he’d apparently put it in the trash bin thinking it was a folded up receipt. Soooo we uber all the way back to the south side. It had already been through the trash compacter so he had to spend half an hour digging through the garbage with this guy named Irvine. But he found it! And proposed later, after hours in Millennium Park after we’d just been to see The Book of Mormon. It was absolutely perfect and I cannot wait to marry him.

    Congratulations as well to all the other bees who got engaged last week! <3

    Ok ladies – I think it’s happening this week!! Wednesday is our 2 year anniversary and he has a really special dinner planned and has been kind of vague about the plans. I’m trying not to get too excited, in case it doesn’t happen, but if he doesn’t do it then I have no idea when he will!

    lagavulin :  LOVE your ring! Gorgous! I’ve always wanted a oval ring, too. Stone would be a gem. I wonder if I’ll end up with that. Hehe. 

    All the best in the wedding planning process. 

    mrs.akjp :  Keep me on the list, please. However, just FYI – SO said proposal will occur within September. Fingers crossed for me as I’ve been waiting quite a while! Our relationship is just shy of a decade! 

    All the best for ALL waiting Bess! I have my fingers crossed for you all!

    We’re just shy of 5 so I picked 3-4. Hoping we get to 5 engaged. Mainly for symmetry; we started dating almost exactly 5 years afterwe met, and I love when things match 🙂

    thorncastle :  you just made me think about it, and my SO and I are in the exact same boat. Met 5 years before dating and will be close to 5 years together when we get engaged!!

    Just celebrated our 7 year anniversary! We’re doing a 7-day celebration (tiny things each day) and I have a feeling he’s going to ask at the end of it. I guess we’ll see!
