Birthday engagement! :)
Posted: Sep 6, 2009 3:32 PM

Yay, I get to join all the "officially engaged" ladies now! :)

He proposed yesterday, we were celebrating my bday and since he lives 2 hrs away right now he came to spend the day with me and at one point we were at "our spot" at the beach and next thing I know, I turn around and my FH (HEHE) was down on one knee! :) The whole thing was very "us" and very funny and romantic the way it all unfolded but it still hasnt quite hit me yet I dont think...

Almost feels weird because I think I expected something to feel different or, I dont know just SOMEthing.. But even though Im happy/excited and its so nice to hear everyone congratulate US finally and all, its still "me and him" in my mind and I dont FEEL engaged or as if something big has happened.. Not sure if Im making sense but did anyone else feel like that?? I think I just have to get in the mood by doing some dress shopping or something lol.

Congratulations!! How exciting :)

Your feeling of feeling "normal" is normal LOL. It comes to show that the ring and the engagement is not really a big deal so to speak. When my FH proposed I was happy and glowing and all of that but I still felt the same as before. Nothing has changed lol. I'm sure when I get married the same thing will happen. Once you start planning for the wedding and such you will get moments of excitements ;) When is your big day?

Thanks ladies! Cheetah, were hoping for end of may sometime..at least thats the plan for now. And thanks for reassuring me that Im "normal" for feeling normal lol..

FoundTrueLove, sounds like my story lol. I knew he had the ring (in fact thats when I first signed up for brides.com and made my first post about that lol) but the excitement and anxiousness went away reeeaaal quick for me, not even sure why. I just settled to just having fun with my BOYFRIEND because I knew whenever he decided to propose that would be the end of that as we know it, lol. Not that I think it wont be fun right now but now $$ is on our mind all the time and I doubt Ill be able to push wedding stuff out of my mind for a "just us" day/evening too often!!

Congratulations! It's such a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

Don't worry if you dont' immediately feel engaged, it will come. Each time you call him your fiance, or someone congratulates you, or you start actively planning the wedding, it will feel more real and then suddenly being engaged just feels normal. ;)

Oh my gosh.. I feel like I could be reading my own post! First of all, my birthday was Sept 8 (just a couple weeks ago) and I got engaged on my birthday too!

And I know exactly how you feel.. I kept telling people "I know I'm engaged.. but I keep forgetting I'm getting married!" It feels surreal I guess.. It took me a while to get used to it! Everywhere I go people I barely know are saying "congrats!" or "let me see the ring!" Its so fun. I haven't done anything planning-related, yet. I'd like to go dress shopping. But because we're waiting until I'm mostly done with school, our wedding isn't until 2011.. So I kind of feel like I'm "pushing" it by going in to psycho-planning-mode!

Anyway.. CONGRATULATIONS!! It just gets better from here! :)
