Isn’t waiting the greatest?!! ::rolls eyes::

For real though, I hope you don’t let the stress of waiting ruin your birthday celebration!!

Try to remain calm and breathe. Keep reminding yourself that it’s your birthday and you should be happy for being alive another day. I hope this helps. If not have a few drinks and forget about everything else.

First- Happy Birthday!!!

It’s so hard (for me, at least) to not analyze everything and wonder about every opportunity for a proposal. I think if you’re in the final stages of waiting and know your guy is “working on” stuff then this is expected. Just don’t let it consume you, especially not on your birthday! I know you’ll be so busy and having such a great time that nothing will get you down this weekend. Enjoy your Birthday and check in with us on Monday!

Ohh I am having the same thoughts my birthday is thursday and normally he is driving me up the wall batty asking me what i want what he should do on and on (although generally i find out that is all a front because he throws the best birthdays!) but he hasn’t been doing that so I can’t help but think/hope based on that and a few other clues that it could be happening soon. of course…i have been wrong on this matter before! lol

My birthday was last week and I thought there was a possiblity that it could happen, but it didn’t. The waiting and anticipating is tough! I keep telling myself that it will happen when it is supposed to happen…not always helpful but I tell myself that anyway.

Hey! Happy birthday!

I know how you feel about analyzing everything… We’re getting engaged by the end of this year (2 days!!! Ah!!!!) and we had a big trip to Disney World planned (we got back Dec. 17th). My dream proposal would happen there. He even told me that it wasn’t going to happen there because he wanted COMPLETE control of the proposal. Of course, I took this as he was just wanting to throw me off therefore gaining the “control” back. Haha! Twisted mind I have, eh? Plus, everyone thought he was going to so they fueled that idea into my head as well… Well, it finally hit me when we were there that he wasn’t going to do it and I got upset. I had to get over it because I wanted to enjoy my vacation.

Also, since I know we’re getting engaged within the next few days, I started analyzing everything again. We just can’t help it! Well, then he started doing things to make me think he was going to propose just to teach me a lesson. He told me, “Don’t think about it, just wait for it and enjoy it when it happens” (well, no duh, sweetie! haha.) I have to admit, he was right… *Dang!* I have stopped, well… lessened my analyzing and it is MUCH better!

That is what I recommend. Just worry about enjoying your birthday because the disappointment isn’t worth it… I know… easier said than done!
