After a very roller coaster week last week when I thought for sure it was going to happen for my birthday next week and then feeling crushed when I thought it wasn’t going to happen, I’m back to being pretty sure it is!!
-An accidental phone call from the jeweler to my cell phone asking for him. I had gotten bummed because I then received an email from them a week later advertising a big sale so then I thought maybe that’s why they were calling. One of the bees made a good point that they haven’t called about any sales before so why now.
-He suggested taking me to a meaningful place for my birthday where he told me he loved me for the first time on my birthday two years ago
-He’s being very affectionate and loving. He always is but somehow it seems like more than usual. I will just catch him looking at me lovingly at random times. I’ll ask him why he’s looking at me like that and he says “I just love you”
-He told me he can’t wait to give me my birthday present. Well, I asked for boots and I know he bought them. He actually showed me the box all wrapped up already. I’m thinking, “Really? You can’t wait to give me boots?” We always do presents first before going out to celebrate so if he didn’t have one for me I would have been highly suspicious.
-He has been bringing up our future more. He’s always referring to when we get our place (we don’t live together yet, chose not to until we get engaged), our future kids, etc.
-We had lunch with my dad the other day. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary except when my dad gave my SO a hug goodbye he said to him “Let me know how it goes!” There wasn’t anything I could think of that this would apply to that we talked about at lunch.
-I spoke to my dad on Tuesday to tell him to have a great vacation. He will be out of town for my birthday. He said “You are going to have a terrific birthday, I know it.” Kind of a weird statement from him. He would normally just say to have fun and he will call me then. He sounded so matter of fact, as if he knew something I don’t know.
With all of these things put together and just my gut feeling I’m pretty sure I’m getting engaged a week from tomorrow!! I have decided to be happy and excited even if it doesn’t happen then because I know it will be soon. In the meantime this is going to be such a loooong week!!
