@awolfpaw:  to visit Europe of take a dance class or burn some bras  <— lol I actually laughed when I read that! 

Oooo good luck on the trip!!! πŸ™‚  I don’t know if I have any advice on how to deal with all of those emotions all at one time.  Just know you’re not alone.  I saw on one of your other posts that you and your bf have been together for about 4.5 years.  That’s about the same amount of time Fiance and I were together before we got engaged.  Just know that your life doesn’t stop because you’d be getting engaged/married.  You can still visit Europe and burn bras even with an Fiance.  πŸ™‚ 

As far as your mom, hmmm, I don’t really know how to bring it up, but if it’s important to you that he talks to her first, I’d find a way to tell him that.  Good luck!! I’m excited for you!

Maybe you can say that you were talking about marriage/weddings, and she casually mentioned that she would really like to know before he proposed to you, and it would make her very happy.

@awolfpaw:  wow, i didn’t even think about how life would change after we got engaged, good one to bring that up. I know you want to move forward & things will be fine. Just breathe & enjoy the moment, I know once things get rolling , you’ll have little time to process much. (from what I’ve read anyways lol) good luck!!!!

@awolfpaw:  Hey girl, congrats! I think my boyfriend is going to propose this weekend in Milwaukee on a trip with his fam -we’re proposal twinsies (hopefully)!

At first I kinda wanted him to ask my parents’ blessing, not because I think I need their permission, but because it’s a nice gesture. But he thinks that makes me seem like cattle being trading, so he declined to ask to them, which I understand. I ended up just telling my parents that we looked at rings this past weekend cuz I was so excited! You could just tell your mom. But if you really want him to tell her then you should make up some cousin or aquaintence who just got engaged and how you thought it was so sweet that her fiance asked her mom first, or something. Or like what a scandal it was that the guy didn’t ask her parents.

And I second what @SimpleGifts says, you should definitely visit Europe with your mister! And make him take a dance class to prepare for your first dance at the wedding! And let’s be real, I’m sure he would be happy for you to get rid of your bras by burning or any other means πŸ˜‰

Oooh, he worked so hard to surprise you! I fully get your suddenly feeling like you haven’t lived enough yet. It will pass, and your life and adventures aren’t ending, this just means they will all include your SO, which is much better IMO.

@awolfpaw:  Getting engaged / married doesn’t stop you from burning bras, actually your hubby might like that LOL You will have time to do everything you wanna do in life as a married woman too. Don’t stress the stuff. Just enjoy all that comes your way. It is your life and don’t worry if someone mey get upset.

If all reasoning fails and you still feel like this, do what I do – have a glass of wine πŸ™‚

That idea of bringing up someone else as a way to mention telling you mom is great! It’s so natural to be nervous, I would not worry about it. Good luck!

Pretty nails. Enjoy your stay in Chicago. I hope you come back with a ring but, after reading your post, it seems that you will be happy either way. Good luck!
