Not Engaged Yet

Vegas update

Hi ladies! So, the Vegas update is this:

E-rings: 0
# of conversations about E-rings: 1

BF is in full planning mode. His exact quote "It could be tomorrow, it could be a month from now, but definitely in the next few months."

I appreciate that he's obviously put so much thought into it. He reiterated again that he does NOT want my help with designing the ring (fine by me). For many reasons, which I won't go into here, I'd like us to get married in Feb/March 2012. If that means we have a five month engagement, then so be it... 

So all-in-all, I'm happy we had the conversation and glad that he didn't ask me anytime after Friday at 7pm because I was either drunk or hungover the rest of the weekend (and at times, both drunk AND hungover).

Patient pants being put on in 3...2....1... :)

    Sounds like you guys had a great time!  I'm glad that you're feeling good with where you are and that you had a convo with him.

    How exciting!! Now remember, he's lying and it won't be until next year or the diamond is still being mined in Uganda (did I make that up?) and their turtle delivery system is quite slow.. ;)

    FI was mentioning next spring. I'm a bit apprehensive about it since it's May 16th and we've barely seen any spring-like weather here...Sealed

    That is so exciting. Don't you feel a little bit of piece of mind now? :) Hugs to you, now we're both in the same patiently (anxiously) waiting boat. 

    Let's do the happy dance!

    Well, that talk sounds exciting.

    Is it weird that I actually want you to get engaged soon?  Like, when I think of who on TK I'd want to get engaged next, it's definitely you. 

    Sorry, I know I'm random.

    Skippy- I think you, Nursey, and CU should all get engaged on the same day! Like all the girls did this weekend! LOL

    I'd be into that.  I'm pretty good at predicting these things.  Although I will say, I had dreams that Cate got engaged about 2 months before she actually did.

    Oh well...as they say in HP, reading tea leaves is not an exact science.

    <div>Oh my, that is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said to me! I also hope NurseyK gets in on the engagement action :) I'd love to hear a more specific 'prediction' though, if you've got one. You should start a sticky thread where you predict everyone's engagement dates and then we can fill them in with the real ones when they happen!</div><div>
    </div><div>BF and I have had 'timelines' before but him telling me it would be in the next 'few' months will make it just a bit easier to relax and not think it's coming any minute. I do have to say that I've decided (as long as it's ok with him) that I still want to get married in Feb/March 2012 even if we do only have 4-5 months to plan, and even if we have to get married on a Friday or Sunday.</div><div>
    </div><div>PS I told BF I wanted an engagement pony but I'm allergic to horses so he has to clone a real pony and adjust it's DNA so that it doesn't make me sneeze to death. I'm thinking that should take him 2-5 years. <The previous statement is fiction></div>

    CU, as long as you have some flexibility with dates and venues, planning an AZ wedding in 5 months or less is totally doable! :)

    I agree this is the best thread I've read in awhile.

    That is so nice of you, Nursey, to allow me to have my own day before yours!  Since that was so generous of you, I don't mind if you take the whole year. <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-laughing.gif" border="0" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" />
