I just need to vent for a minute.
Okay, so if you recall from my previous posts. Boyfriend or Best Friend told me we’d be engaged by the end of the summer and to set up engagement pictures for the fall. The date was set (no deposit down yet)
Well.. some complications with the ring had arose and he finally told me about that 2 weeks + ago, he also told me had the ring, and that he would contact the photographer to set up a meeting to sign the contract and such.
Well…. The pictures are scheduled for October 21st. He said he has a meeting scheduled for some Wednesday before the pictures… which leaves the 5th, 12th, and 19th.. But….
WE’RE STILL NOT ENGAGED THOUGH!
I told him he better not do it day of the pictures, or day before. Also that I didn’t want it in front of a billion people (not my style, I’m too much an introvert.)
Well this uocoming weekend is completely booked with activities with friends and volunteering with the youth group we help out with. I thought it was going to happen last Friday. He had a whole date planned out. Well it didn’t. He said he wasn’t even planning on doing it then. Why the romantic date then?!
I flat out told him today that I’m really stressed out and starting to feel silly that these freaking pictures are two and half weeks away, and I’m still sans ring!
UGH! A couple weeks ago I was content again to wait…. now I’m freaking out!
Thanks for listening/ reading my rant. I feel better now.

Wow!!! Well… maybe it will be this weekend! Obviously he is planning something special for you or he would have already done it. Good luck! Keep us updated 🙂

I was thinking: ‘How cool if he asks during the shoot’ and then I read I told him he better not do it day of the pictures hahaha. He knows what you want and he has the ring, take a deep breath and think he’ll do it any second.

@aprose: Thanks! I’m glad I’m not being crazy! It’s good to hear that someone else would be going crazy too, if they were in my situation! lol
@Hbomb84: AHHHH! I’m freaking out! I know!! I hope it does happen this weekend! I’m just sick of thinking it could happen every weekend, or everytime we hang out… and it doesn’t. I guess I’m just sick of the dissapointment. I know he is planning something awesome, it’s just hard. Thanks for the reminder though 🙂
@Coffee cup: LOL It would be really cool if that happened… getting it on camera by a professional… but I just already feel so silly planning all this and not having a ring. Like I’m going to go and get my makeup done at Sephora in a week to prepare for the pictures. I’m going to feel so silly not having a ring and telling the makeup artist “It’s for my engagement pictures, but we’re not engaged yet!” haha 😀 I just want some time to bask in the engagement glow a little while before the pictures. I want to enjoy every minute and not feel rushed

Awww I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said “I wish he’d do it already!” I’m sorry that you’re feeling this way, just try and think about the feeling of actually when it happens. It will be GREAT! I’m confident it will be soon.

At first I was gonna say “don’t worry, it’ll happen soon and when you least expect it.” But then I thought twice and realized I’d be doing exactly what you’re doing. 🙂 It’s very exciting though. I know you said you have plans with people, but there is always the chance he could do it after you got home. Or he could take you out somewhere after hanging out with everyone and do something privately.There are so many possibilities! 🙂

Well he is cutting it close, but I think you need to let go and let him do what he feels is right. Also I agree what if he does it during the pics? Then you can have some true emotion of the proposal captured it will be beautiful. I think the closer he does it to the day of the pics the more you are still on that “I just got engaged high” Dont stress to much and just be happy in knowing that you wont be waiting to much longer.

@happy2bee: Thanks. I know it’ll happen soon too. I’m trying to focus on the excitement of it happening, rather than the disapointment that it hasn’t happened yet. Aw I can’t wait for when it happens for you too!
@claireos: I’m hoping it’ll be this weekend, despite our plans! There ARE so many possibilites. 😀
@organizedbride11: Yeah, I am letting go. It’s just so hard because I like to be in control of everything, and I don’t have any control… I don’t even know when the photographer meeting is! I was thinking about that too (about having the engagement close to the pictures) It will probably be more joyful… rather than having the pictures several months after the fact. That’s a good point, I’m glad you brought it up! 😀

I’d be freaking out too, BUT, is it possible that he is going to talk to the photographer and propose AT the shoot so you can get it on camera? I think he is making you panic on purpose so he can surprise you when you least expect it.

Wow, I don’t know which is harder….having a firm date (i.e. engagement photos appointment) or having no date! I’m gonna go with no date 🙂 But I definitley understand how you feel. Anticipation on 100 thousand trillion!
Hold on a little longer!!!

It looks like he may want the photographer to capture the moment..
