@prettyinpink11: first off, yay!! you’re sooo close, i’m so happy for you! love your ring choice too!! 🙂
Progress for me has actually been happening, and it’s Mr. H who’s been dropping the hints!
-A few weeks ago, Mr. H was reading his FB newsfeed and there was an article that popped up about DeBeers; apparently they were price gouging severely or something. Anyway, I told him that when the time comes, if he doesn’t use one of the heirloom rings his mom and sister offered (which, as of Thanksgiving, he hadn’t ever seen), that he didn’t need to worry about spending 10 grand on a ring. I told him to think about white sapphire or white topaz; just as sparkly, wayyyy less money. He said, “Well, I really appreciate you looking out for my bank account…but you should know that it’s safe to say you’re getting a diamond. Well 2…well it’s 3.” Then we started looking at men’s wedding bands. 🙂 The fact that he said what kind of ring it was leads me to believe he’s got it already or at least has it picked out!
-Last week we were watching a documentary on food; how it affects your health, etc. We’re super picky, label-reading, organic if we can, “those people,” type eaters. So I was saying how when we have kids I want our kids to eat clean foods; they start off as a blank slate without junk. He agreed; I told him that he’s going to be a really amazing dad one day. He said that I am going to be an amazing mom, but then he added, “and, you’re going to be an amazing wife.” 🙂
-He’s been bringing up “big ticket” subjects (things you’d want to make sure you discuss before marriage). In the last week we’ve talked about money and how we’ll handle bills when we’re married. We’ve talked about where we’re going to live, how long until we have kids and how many, etc.
I’M SO EXCITEDDDDDDDDDDDDDD because I think it’s coming pretty soon…hell, maybe even tomorrow. I asked him what we’re doing for NYE and all I get is, “It’s in the making…” Yay for 2014; no matter if it happens January 1st or December 31st, this is our year!
