The shut it up pact works! Magick is real! Who the heck would have thought I would be writing this!
I was I was having crazy thoughts. I was even thinking of saying something dumb. But just as I was telling myself “why? Don’t say anything that isn’t going to be positive.” Then the TV said everything I needed. Some new sitcome about a wedding band and I off-handedly mentioned how rare it is to see wedding bands. Most weddings we have seen were from DJ-IPOD, and he said how he had people who would do it, and that lead to us performing at our own reception. Just fanciful thoughts. I was COOL about it though, I PROMISE! I was trying to change the subject.
Then he told me he bought my Ivory bee ring (from Etsy). He then told me he thought he found something (a ring!) that I would like. I was freaking out because I have been saying I will know he is serious about it when he ask me again what it is that I like. And here is is…ASKING ME WHAT I LIKE! I asked him if he wanted me to see what he was thinking about. He said he didn’t know, but he didn’t want me not to like it. I told him whatever he wanted to get me was wonderful as long as he was asking me to be his wife. He knew I wanted a blue stone so I asked what store was he thinking of. He mentioned a brick and mortar store and I suggested he get my Sapphire online and the setting in the store. He asked me to email him and so I, like the cool chick I am… waited until the just now. All I was thinking of all day was running to tell you bees!
So now I have to Shut-It-Up at least until the new year…Just give him time…He needs time…
Holy crap I am so excited!!

That is so exciting! So happy to hear he brought up the ring on his own! Means he is definately thinking and planning. Do you suspect it will happen soon?
I hope it happens before the end of the year for you! Seems like the shut it up pact does In fact work.
I also saw something that got my hopes up a bit today at my SOs apartment. He had a guidebook for buying diamond rings laying out on his desk. I think this means hes also planning as well!

Girlllllllll this is exciting news! It’s happening, it’s really happening. No need to pinch yourself. But much need to shut-it-up and let your SO do his thang. Waiting is a b*tch but at least you know there’s not long to go until IT happens! Squeeeeeeeee!

@biochic75: Thats so great that you spotted that! woohoo for us! Actually, I don’t expect it to happen “girl soon” (the next few WEEKS). I expect it to happen “guy soon” (the next few MONTHS). I think my actual guestimation of before the Spring Equinox is still realistic. But I think it will be easier for him to plan and save AND have more control, because instead of saving a ridiculous amount for a ring that hard to find, he can save a little bit, get an awesome stone, then save a little bit more and get a great setting. And who knows, he may even invite me shop with him one day? I am not counting on it though, because he told me he wants it to be a surprise. This is new because he has never surprised me with anything in our whole relationship, but I am excited for it!! A few months ago I posted about how waiting should be called ‘Recourtship’ because we are re-evaluating our relationship, and coming out on the WINNING side. (Winning!)
It is so real right now. And I feel like it can happen as soon as the Winter Solstice or New Years. But dag nabit I have to be COOL MAN…real cooooool *snap, snap…*
But yeah, I am going to get my nails done today at lunch.
