He gave me a promise ring a few weeks ago for our anniversary, saying he didn’t want to propose in the summer. Tonight he told me the engagement ring is being set (stone is a family heirloom). So hopefully this fall!

Meeeeeeeee πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Found out he has been shopping for a ring, or already has a ring. I do know he hasn’t spoken to my dad yet, but I know it’s coming soon!

UPDATE; So I was convinced it was going to be July.  All we’re waiting on is the ring that is being custom made to be delivered.  He started the process in April.  We have even got to the point where we were talking past proposal, onto wedding and have even set a date.  And the ring STILL didn’t arrive.  He’s been really good at keeping me in the loop (his part of the bargain for getting it custom made rather than me picking it – which is what I wanted)

Well July is officially over.  And the past few days it all got a bit too much for me.  I am hormonal anyway, but I’ve been a wreck, and when he told  me Thursday that it still hadn’t been dispatched  had to face that it wasn’t going to be this weekend, and it definately wasn’t going to be July!!  However, as if by some miracle, the ring designer emailed today.  It’s going to have its final polish Monday and is going to be dispatched on special delivery to his work next week.

So here we are!  The count down in on, this time next week I will no longer be a waiting bee.  AND I CAN’T WAIT!!

Me! πŸ˜€ He has the ring and has said in the next three months (Sep, Oct, Nov) but he’s determined to keep it a surprise so I don’t know whether it’s likely to be sooner or later. Three months seems like such a small amount of time but then November feels ages away! Lol.

I am expecting it in September for our anniversary! I know he’s been ring shopping and has talked to my parents. BUT I don’t know if he actually picked out a ring yet. I’m betting he will ask on our aniversary.

This is my very first post!  I’ve been reading the “waiting” posts for a few weeks trying to keep my sanity, but at times the waiting gets the best of me!  Our story:  SO and I are both in our 40’s, my SO has never been married.  We’ve been together for a wonderful 2.5 years.  We began discussing the topic of marriage about a year ago. 

Fast forward to a month ago when were discussing SO moving in with me.  His job is changing so now it will be realistic for us to live together (previously his commute would’ve been awful).  He plans to move in around November of this year.  I made a comment that our moving in together should come along with a particular piece of “sparkly hardware”  ;o)

I followed up with some pictures and he became very interested in the specifics of what I wanted and what websites had the settings I liked.  I found the exact setting at two local stores and I know he called both to speak to them.  He said he couldn’t wait to buy me the ring I loved and see it on my finger  We also saw someone we know in the jewelery business last week and he made an offhand comment that “he should’ve bought a diamond from them”.  So I know we’re getting close!

My birthday is in a month so that might be a proposal possibility, but regardless it should happen before November.  YAY!

So happy to speak aloud about this – I’m trying so hard not to bring it up to my boyfriend (but sometimes I can’t help myself).

I’m expecting it by the end of the year!  Our financial situation has been the major hold up, but I recently got a great job and we will be moving back to CT, which is where our family is and where we’d like to get married (we’ve been living in TN and thought we would be in CO next because of his job, but it turns out we are headed back to CT).  The timing is all really great!  I’m trying not to get my hopes up for something in the next 1-2 months because he’s been telling me “soon” for a year and a half…but I outright told him that I’d like to do it before the end of the year, and we both agreed that we want to get married before we leave CT again, which will be in 1.5-2 years.  So now I’m just waiting…and trying to get the motivation to work out preemptively in the meantime! πŸ™‚

he asked for my dad’s blessing while we were on a cruise to the bahamas in march.

he purchased the ring in early april, and recieved it in late april.

he had it sized two weeks ago.

the ring sits in his safe in the nightstand. just a few feet from my head. everynight. LOL!


we have discussed all aspects. guest list, decor, suits, food.<br />we even visited a venue on a whim (on mothers day), but ididn’t like it.<br />we just set a date today!!!


i have a slight idea when i think he will propose, but i’m trying to put it out of my head so i don’t get disappointed if it doesn’t happen.

Hey fellow bees, I’m officially back on this list!! BF was ready on our 3rd yr anniversary (which was early Oct this yr) but he was having a hard time finding a good job back then. I didn’t even want to mention it by then cause I didn’t want to hurt his feelings…

Now he’s settled on this great job that he loves and I knew that he booked the ring alreadyyyyyyyy!!! We all agreed that I should be involved in selecting the ring since I will be the one wearing it lol…so he lets me took a look when he picked online. The ring looks absolutely amazing and i’ve been so excited since i saw it haha…
