Longtime lurker here, but I've been mostly silent since I have yet to get, well, officially engaged (though we've been together for 3 1/2 years and living together for 2 1/2). One step closer today as my future FI and I went and picked out a ring over Thanksgiving! I'm so excited but we're waiting to tell family/friend until it's official, so I thought I'd share on the boards.
Now it's just a waiting game-- he's hidden the ring (I kept wanting to try it on) and I'm waiting on him to legitimately ask me to marry him. Looking forward to planning our fabulous Vegas wedding! Thanks for all of the wonderful inspiration/ideas so far!
