Here is this week’s Waiting/Engaged List! Let us know if you would like to be added to the waiting list, if you have an engagement to add to the list that is not on here, if you have a date correction to your engagement blurb, or anything else!
Funny story… my SO and I were driving home from work and somehow ended up talking about this list. He knows I make it every week and he asked how long I’ve been doing it for. I made a comment about how I didn’t feel like writing up the list that night and he asked why don’t I have someone else do it. I told him I probably could, but that it’s sort of a tradition that the list keeper does not pass along her duties until she becomes engaged. He smiled and I’ve now got my fingers crossed that he helps me hurry along the process of no longer being list keeper! (Although he JUST asked me what I’m typing and when I told him it was the list he just rolled his eyes and walked away! Ugh!)

deathbydesign: On 2/18, while having dinner one night during a vacation in Mexico, deathbydesign’s SO called over a violinist to play for her and then had the waiter surprise her with not an entree, but a ring instead!
TankGirl: On 2/18, after a surprise of flowers, dinner, and dessert, TankGirl’s (now) fiance added to the surprises when he asked her to marry him on their two year anniversary!
MsFoxxy: MsFoxxy didn’t realize she was carrying her own engagement ring in her suitcase while on the way to her cruise out of San Juan until on 2/14 (while touring a resort in St. Thomas for a possible destination wedding location), her SO pulled the ring out of his camera bag and got down on one knee!
soyjoy222: On 2/19 while soyjoy222 was getting ready to go out to dinner, her SO interrupted her and told her to sit down on the bed and close her eyes. When she opened them her new Fiance was on one knee in front of her with a ring and a reason to celebrate!
cortneyc: On 2/20 (?) while at the “happiest place on Earth”, cortneyc became one of the happiest women on Earth when her new Fiance proposed in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle at Disneyland (and even had a Disney photographer there to capture the moment)!
MissSawyer: On 2/20 (?) while having a belated Valentine’s Day dinner at home, MissSawyer’s boyfriend capped it off with a proposal at the dinner table!
Ms.Aum: On 2/21, Ms.Aum had a “presidential engagement” when her new Fiance surprised her with a proposal on President’s Day!
SadieBee: On 2/24 during a local hike, what could have been an otherwise miserable day (cold, overcast, and with the smell of manure in the air!) turned into a memorable one when SadieBee’s SO gave her a ring for a belated birthday present!
rufflesandlace: On 3/6, rufflesandlace was entirely surprised when her proposal came just 3 months into officially waiting!
Mrs.GreatBrittain: On 3/12, Mrs.GreatBrittain and her (now) Fiance stopped by the beach in her hometown to watch the sunrise, which just so happened to bring with it a proposal while they sat blanketed in the sand!
nikkiinmass: After feeling letdown that she received a Pandora bead instead of a ring for her birthday, on 3/12 nikkiinmass was shocked to find that her SO had decided to propose after all and just wanted it to be the perfect surprise!
fishylove: For her birthday on 3/12, fishylove was taken on an unexpected outing to a hot tub overlooking a lake, where she found rose petals, candles, cider, strawberries, and her man with a ring and a proposal!
HisIrishPrincess: On 3/14 (?), HisIrishPrincess got a surprise when her SO arrived in town earlier than she had thought and took her out for a romantic dinner after spending the weekend together. After dessert, he dropped to one knee in the middle of the restaurant (which unbeknownst to them, just so happened to be the same exact place where her brother proposed to his wife)!
RoRoRo: On 3/18, RoRoRo thought she was going out to dinner and to pick up tickets for the symphony with her boyfriend. While stopping to supposedly pick up their tickets (at the same place where they had their first date), RoRoRo discovered a photographer snapping pictures of them as her boyfriend asked her to become his wife!
TineTine07: On 3/19, TineTine07’s man dropped to one knee in front of the fireplace at the Marine Club Library in San Francisco. He topped it off with a “proposal” to her daughter with a necklace when he asked her to accept him into her life too!
LadySapphire: On 3/20, while hiking at Silver Falls and capturing some pictures near a beautiful waterfall, LadySapphire giggled as her SO dropped to one knee once they reached the top of their hike!
mg1363: On 3/21 (?), mg1363 was at home listening to Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love” when her man couldn’t wait a day longer and ran upstairs to grab the ring and propose right there and then!
MrsCajun: On 3/18 MrsCajun became engaged to the love of her life!
mlb032488: On 3/27, while celebrating her birthday and her anniversary at home with friends and family, mlb032488 blew out the candles on her cupcakes and then turned around to find her SO down on one knee! He accidentally set off his car alarm before asking her to marry him!
stateline: On 4/2, stateline’s SO enlisted the help of many people and organized a flash mob to do a surprise dance for her while he sang “Marry You” and proposed!
Oneeleven: On 3/31, Oneeleven and her (now!) fiance went for a hike in the hills and stopped for a picnic lunch. She asked him to pass her her sandwich, but instead she got a ring and a proposal!
picturemeurs: On 4/3, picturemeurs thought a proposal might be coming that day but then got slightly annoyed when her boyfriend decided to take her fishing. However, her annoyance turned to joy when he reeled in not an ugly fish, but a beautiful ring instead!
darlingdeer: On 4/7, darlingdeer’s SO asked her to run out to grab lunch. When she returned home, he was missing but a scavenger hunt was left behind! After following all 8 clues, she ended up at the park where he was waiting to propose!
wclaire: On 4/8, shortly after discussing first dance songs for their wedding one day, wclaire returned from the bathroom to find Train’s song “Marry Me” playing as her SO dropped to one knee!
playingdaisy: On 4/9, playingdaisy’s SO asked her to come to brunch with him, followed by a walk in Central Park and a performance at Lincoln Center. Arriving at the park, playingdaisy suggested they rent a rowboat, and she ended up getting a proposal on the water as her SO’s best friend took pictures from the shore!
chasesgirl: On 4/15, chasesgirl was treated to a romantic dinner on the roof of her church where her best friends served dinner and sang her and her man’s special song. The evening ended with a proposal at sunset!
As always waiting ladies… wishing you luck that your engagements will happen sooner than you think!
