@MrsWe:  I know, I have to get used to it myself! I got a couple messages that were pretty rude and uncalled for (I mean, , is someone’s life really that bad that they have to be such a bitch on the internet?!). I’m usually pretty tough and have a don’t give a shit attitude but I have posted so much on here about my relationship and stuff that I decided to just start fresh. And since we’re hoping to get married in Hawaii Laughing I figured it was a fitting username!

 

Thanks! I will update for sure *if* it happens.

@EmilyJoy:  I’m having the WORST time not saying anything!! I looked at venues this morning (he asked me to) and I pretty much planned our entire wedding right after that but I’m trying so hard not to say anything. For once in my life I need to play it cool!

 

I swear though, if after all this with his mom and asking me to look at venues, if he doesn’t propose we will have some serious issues.

ETA: I was a horrible waiting bee this morning though… I planned everything. The ceremony location, the reception location, my hair style, the dinner, the cake, the invitations and a possible date.

It’s not looking good ladies… Last night I ended up going to bed alone (I wasn’t feeling good) and he came up later, which is fine, but then he woke up a couple hours later and said he felt like he was having an anxiety attack!! Then this morning I was getting ready for work and he was awake watching TV, which never happens. I leave the house at 6:30 and he doesn’t leave until 2 hours later so he’s usually sleeping. I asked him if he was ok and he just snapped “I don’t know babe” at me.

Not good!!!

@PenguinLove:  Ohh I know how you feel ๐Ÿ™ it will happen though.

At my job interview today, one of the candidates started talking about her wedding planning! It really was the last thing I wanted to hear.

(I’m waiting for the all-important phone call right now. Eek.)

@MrsWe:  well that got confusing fast!! lol

Givemecouture was my old account… I changed the name to something random (which is where the vanillabean bit comes in). I changed the name so that it can no longer be searched. That account is deactivated so I can’t post from it and no one can message me, etc.

This account (orchidaloha) is my only account that I will be using.

Small update from me…. I was tidying the kitchen this morning and I moved his wallet and I saw a receipt… from BIRKS!!! I didn’t look at it. I just panicked a little and put his wallet back.

I know he was looking at getting a new watch from there but if he had bought it , he definitely would have shown it to me. He got new shades yesterday and showed them to me so there’s no way he would have forgotten to show me a watch.

No longer waiting!!!! It’s so weird to say that!!! Just wanted to say a huge thank you to all you fellow waiters for all of your experiences, chat and support! I will see you ‘on the other side’! Hahaha or something ๐Ÿ˜‰ although I think its going to take some time to shake the habits-I can openly talk about married now! It’s so weird! Good weird but still, weird. Keep waiting patiently bees, it will come ๐Ÿ™‚ my one bit of advice, let him own the proposal (If he’s proposing), he’ll be so proud of himself!!!

@orchidaloha:  Holy mackerel! Your SO is acting very weird, and then you found a receipt from a jewelry store!! I hope it’s going to happen soon so you don’t have to be on pins and needles anymore! I’m also glad I popped back in on this thread in time to see how you got a new account and name. That SUCKS that people were being vile to you about things you’ve posted. . . what morons. Undecided

 

I have something semi-weird to report. I don’t know if I’d posted on this thread about how a few weeks ago, in my birthday card, my SO wrote some lovely things about looking forward to spending the coming year with me, etc. etc., and that it will hopefully include “some fun surprises!” He has never written such a thing in any card to me before. This came a couple weeks after he inquired in detail about the size of the stone in my new RHR, and some conversations about when we should get married, rings and sharing of ring designs I like. 

 

So, to get to the point, he and I are taking a vacation together to one of our favorite romantic places at the end of May. I’m SUPER looking forward to it because grad school is so intense right now and I’m doing a summer internship that will keep me doing the same stupid commuting home on weekends thing as I do when school is in session, and do I ever need a break. Anyway, for a little while, when my SO and I were planning the vacation (right at the beginning of all the when-should-we-get-married and ring talk), he acted utterly and completely normal about it. Twice now, when I have brought up the vacation lately, he’s gotten strangely silent and stared off into space before responding. I could be reading into it too much, but it almost seems like he’s tense or mildly worried about the vacation for some reason. That odd behavior of course does not help my very serious attempts to NOT expect anything to happen during the vacation! 

 

Anyone have insight/similar situations to share?
