So on Friday night the Boyfriend or Best Friend and I had a bit of a fight over the engagment, specifically all the pressure people are putting on him. He was right though, people are putting way too much pressure on him and it’s not fair. He said that I deserved the best and that he is working on it and to just be patient a bit longer. My cousin’s wedding is at the end of next month and he said that there is no way I am going without something on my finger! I’m soooo excited that it will be happening soon. I know it won’t bother my cousin to get engaged so close to the wedding since they are some of the ones that keep asking when I am getting engaged.
Hopefully have some great news for you ladies soon. How was everyone else’s weekend?

Wow, how exciting for you that it’s happening so soon! But now that you have a time frame I think it’s best to not ask about it, and if anyone you speak to is rpessuring him tell them to knock it off too!
I’m not waiting, opposite end actually – the wedding is scarily close, so much to do! This weekend we purchased thank you gifts and cards for the bridal party and our parents, our cake topper arrived, I bought some honeymoon clothes and my jewelry for the wedding day, and I finished the thank you cards for our shower gifts!

@wishingonadream04:Yay it sounds like the engagement is coming in the next month or so!! Our weekend has been awesome! Yesterday we went and helped rebuild the family cabin’s deck…and today we watched our beloved SF giants lose against the Astros, grilled some delicious pork w/ salad…now we are watching ourselves some Jersey Shore on DVR as I have a glass of vino….
I believe my proposal is coming in the next month or two….hopefully we both have good news soon!!!

Sounds like a great weekend! I don’t get why others have to pressure the man. I mean us girlfriends give enough pressure lol. This happened to my brother. It was really hard on him and made it feel more like a chore than special. In the end though he delivered an awesome proposal. I think he had to show everyone up lol. I’m sure your man will make it extra special for you:)
I too had a good weekend. We have a new time-line of it being in the Fall. Boyfriend or Best Friend says before October. We’ll see…As I just said it’s a NEW time-line since the summer time-line didn’t work out.
Oh and thanks to these boards I had a talk with the Boyfriend or Best Friend about this engagement being more of a team decision that we should talk about rather than keep a surprise. We decided to keep the ring a surprise instead:) He told me that he plans to buy the ring next weekend while the kids and I are out of town. Crossing my fingers but not holding my breath.

@QuinnLynn7: Oh wow he’s buying your ring next week?? I’ll be on the lookout for your proposal pretty darn soon then. I’m pretty sure my guy doesn’t have the ring yet. i think it would torture me more if I knew he had it. Good luck and I think he’ll pick out the perfect ring for you 🙂
