Breathe…. in… out… in (repeat)

Out of all the Wedding Stuff that us gals know so well

From the time you played dress up as a tiny girl… right thru to today and ALL the visions you have in your head (or pinned on PINTEREST)

THIS hon, is the ONE & ONLY thing a man gets to do.

Let him do it as he sees fit…

He LOVES YOU, he wants to make it special for you…


(Infact it is frickin’ amazing, as you probably won’t be one of the many woman who get a “Non-Proposal” like soooo many of us do)

So put it out of your mind…

It is gonna happen (Yipee !!)

And soon (Yipee !!)

And on a Weekend, no doubt in some special way (Double-Yipee !!)

Try to stay calm, try to relax

Keep up your health & beauty routine (manicures)

Read Mr Bee’s Plan if you need encouragement thru this time…

It is GOING TO HAPPEN (Yipee !! some more)

So remember,

Breathe… in… out… in (repeat)

I’m in an extremely similar situation, so I know exactly what you mean. Wating definitely sucks, but it sounds like your SO is planning something really special for you. How exciting!

@This Time Round:  I needed to hear this right now, so thanks πŸ™‚

TO @WannaBeeMrsB:  & @alsgirl:  lol, glad my words were good for both of you.



TO alsgirl: You said… Not in June, and BEFORE September.

So that means July or August.  That is exactly 22 Days from now (first of July) and then just a short window of 62 Days (31 + 31)

Which means in a maximum of 84 Days… you will be an ENGAGED LADY

(Altho to be fair, I’d give the guy Labour Day Weekend too… as it is a long weekend… and overlaps… so add on another 2 Days = 86 Days)

Hon, think of it like the BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER…

Get yourself some markers, and a couple of calendar pages, and start crossing off the days !!

Lol, could be your “secret” bit of fun.

AND you can use the squares to also plan out things you want to do during the countdown… to pass the time quicker.

Check out Pinterest they have these really cool lists such as “100 Things to Do this Summer”

Read a Book – Sleep Outdoors – Catch a Firefly – Run in a Sprinkler – Go to a Fair – Eat Cotton Cady… anyhow you get the idea.

Well the date isn’t aribitrary if it means something to him. It is his engagement as well. Chill out and relax, it will happen.

Your waiting is almost over! This is exciting! I’d download a countdown app for my phone and put in the last day is could possibly happen – see how soon it is! And then watch as it becomes less and less time, lol. And the best part is that you’ll know it’s going to happen /before/ that end date, so whatever the countdown says you actually have less time than that :3

(I did this and put in for my next anniversary, which is currently 301 days away :3 somewhat less exciting XD)


I’m sure your guy knows that you don’t want an elaborate proposal but that doesn’t mean he isn’t arranging for it to be special in some way! Perhaps he’s booked to take you somewhere or there’s another event or anything really. Or maybe it’s just a day he feel comfortable with – engagment is big for him too πŸ˜€


Anyway I definitely don’t think you’re being so *insert adjective here*, I can imagine it’s massively frustrating, but it’s also super duper exciting! Best of luck to you ^^

Here is my stance on the situation… from the moment we get engaged us women plan everything. Sure, we ask our fiance for their opinion, but we have our own specific vision for our big day. Guys get this one thing to have control over and he has his own vision for how he wants it to go. Trust me, if he is putting this much thought into it then it is going to be awesome. Just sit back and breathe. You have the rest of your lives ahead of you.

@alsgirl: You’ve only been dating a year and a half. He is only 22 & just finished school, just got a job. He told you a just few months ago that he didn’t feel mature enough to get married! You’ve shared in a prior post that his parents think you are “pushy”.

You  kept asking for a ring so he finally ordered a ring. However clearly he isn’t quite ready to give it to you. He’s trying to slow the train down a bit… obviously!

Think backing off him a bit will serve you better.  You’ve been posting a bunch about this over the last few months, he’s not quite on the same page. You don’t want to end up married and have him say later that he married you because he felt pressured.  Which seems like a real possibility!  Sorry hon!  Best wishes.

I know exactly how you feel, except my ring has been hiding somewhere in the house for over two weeks, our anniversary is the end of this month, so that better be the date he’s waiting for. Or I’m going to find that ring and wear it when he isn’t home. I’m going insane!
