So what a weekend. We had so much fun together. Friday night we went to a rehearsal cookout for some friends that were getting married and then Saturday went to the wedding and reception. We had so much fun. We sat with some of his good guy friends and their wives and he and I were talking about what we want at our wedding and he had quite a few ideas. He even made a comment to his friend who would actually be in our wedding, he told him that he was thinking about black tuxes. My Boyfriend or Best Friend also made a comment about how he wanted the slide show and all that. Then Sunday he went thru the pictures I have saved on my laptop and said that he wanted to use a bunch of those and then asked if I still had a bunch of pictures on our other computer and I told him yes. He said that he would get some pictures from his mom and grandma too. He just had so many things to say about ours that it got me excited.
So my question is this. How long do they usually hang on to the ring before they actually give it to you? He hasn’t gone to get it yet, but that’s ok. I am pretty sure it will be by October 3rd. I was hoping he would have gone Friday but he had to work all day and I wasn’t going to ask about it.
I just wonder if he does buy it by October 3rd, would he really wait till March to give it to me???

Well I hope, in your case, that he doesn’t make you wait til March. But at least he seems to want to talk about the wedding, so that’s always a good sign. And maybe he’ll be one of those guys who just can’t keep it to himself for too long!

oh boy i hope he doesn’t wait! it’s possible that he will… i can tell you my experience though. my guy was so excited to give me the ring he held on to it less than a week! he planned to hold on to it for 2 months… so if your guy is anything like mine you won’t be waiting too long! i’ll cross my fingers for you 🙂

It’s hard to tell if he would hold onto until our trip in March. I hope he doesn’t. I know it would be great and romantic if he proposed while we were in the Carribean but I would be a nervous wreck. I would be afraid of where he put the ring. I pack for all of our trips and I pack the carryon. He wouldn’t be able to put it in his pocket because I would see it going thru security. I know he wants to make it special. I would love a fall proposal with something sweet like putting it on the stick of a caramel apple or something like that. Just simple and sweet. He isn’t a very patient person so I don’t know if he will be able to wait. Also, I am the one who puts all the laundry away and so I don’t know where he would hide it unless he took it to his grandma’s or mom’s house. Who knows! At least I should feel good about knowing that it’s coming soon. Right??

@waitingprincess- I hope he doesn’t wait either! My bf has dropped HEAVY hints about proposing on our Oct trip to mexico and I’m scared of the same things! What if he loses the ring? What if it gets stolen? What if he’s so nervous about proposing he doesn’t enjoy the first half of our vacation? I wish boys would just forget the theatrics and pop the question! 🙂 How did your chicken n’ pie go over last night?

<span style=”font-size: small; font-family: Times New Roman;”>The chicken and pie went over very very well. So well, that I don’t have any leftover chicken and there is only a little over a 1/4 of the pie left. I think he liked it. I even sent a piece of pie with him for in his lunch today. He definitely liked it.
<span style=”font-size: small; font-family: Times New Roman;”>I sure hope he does it soon. I really don’t want him to wait till March. I don’t need a big fancy proposal, plain and simple is good for me. I would rather he did it out of the blue one day. If he waits till March then he knows I will be expecting it to happen then. I don’t want that. I want to be totally caught off guard. I don’t know how to hint at him that I would prefer he didn’t do it while on our trip. There would be too much tension and I would hate to have something happen to the ring while on our way there. Plus I want to be able to tell everyone right away, especially my kids. They are going to be so excited.
<span style=”font-size: small; font-family: Times New Roman;”>I think that I still have my guard up a little though. I want to get super excited about all this but I don’t want to get my hopes up and have it not happen. He hasn’t even bought the ring yet. I know he hasn’t because I went visited the one I want yesterday and it looked super lonely in the store. I am very hopeful that with all the talk he was doing that it truly means he’s going to but you know what they say about all talk and no show. We will see.
<span style=”font-size: small; font-family: Times New Roman;”>Yeah, the little icky pessimist reared it’s ugly head right there. Grrrrrr!!
