oh man, I’m not going to risk going through ANYTHING at J’s once I know he has a ring. I’d rather be surprised and not betray his trust. πŸ™‚

Whoa!  That’s exactly what I probably would have done in the same situation!

However just a little tip – once you find the ring you’ll never have that ‘surprise’ when he proposes.  It’ll be like you ruined your own surprise!  Of course if you already know what the ring looks like that might not be an issue but if I had known that FI had the ring and then I found it, I would have been upset with myself later for ruining my surprise – there aren’t enough good surprises these days!

Hang in there!!!

Murder and mayhem would have ensued if my guy did that to me! Brava for not tearing the house apart – you definately deserve your "true" proposal moment.

Patience is key missy! I never got a surprise with my ring because my fiance and I designed it together. However, I got 2 proposals from him, the first one was without the ring (when he felt it was the right time and lovey dovey feelings were flowing), and the second one was with the ring.

Mind you, I do not regret the way we did things.

Did your bf tell you to NOT look for the ring?

oooh geez! haha, that’s almost mean of him to tease you like that! if it was me, i definitely would have gone looking too! in fact, i went on a ring hunt yesterday, even though he hadn’t said anything about it, just because i had a feeling it might be here….and lo and behold, i found it! i didn’t look though, just saw a bag from a jeweller. so i know it’s there but still haven’t seen it, and the surprise when i do get it will be (partially…but shhh he doesn’t need to know) genuine! πŸ™‚

I had a suspicion the ring had landed and poked around a little bit was unsuccessful, which was probably for the better…The good news is you probably won’t have to wait too much longer since I’ve heard that once they have the ring in hand, it burns a hole in a boy’s pocket…Good luck, try to be patient, it will be totally worth the wait!

PS- that is kinda mean of your BF to say it’s in the house…good grief, does he expect you NOT to look for it?!?!?

Wow.  This is really going to take some self restraint for you to NOT hunt for it but I’d seriously try to not do that.  Don’t ruin the surprise!

This is going to be so cool, so just immerse yourself in other things until it happens and it will! 

How about doing stuff to take your mind off of it?  A bit of reading?  Taking up a ne hobby?  Going to the gym and working out so hard that the last thing you’d wanna do at home is go thru stuff or use more energy? 

This is so gonna be worth your wait.  Crossing my fingers for you and know it will be oh so wonderful when it happens.  πŸ™‚

Maybe he expects for you to look for it as part of the proposal? Because I’m damned sure as soon as M said that I would have shot turning everything upside down like a kid at Christmas looking for his/her favorite Christmas gift! (BTW welcome to the board, you’re going to love it here!!)… I would wait until he got back around and tell him you want to play a game of hot and cold (if you get close to it you’re hot, far from it you’re cold)….

forgot to say that i LOVE your name!! i just named my blog after being a frugalista yesterday!!

I so know where you are coming from!!! My ring is a family heirloom from my fiancee’s side. He’s had it in his possession for years and showed it to me about two months after we started dating. Later, when I moved in with him, it drove me nut knowing that it was just laying there waiting for me in his bedside table drawer. I may have looked at it a few times and maybe tried it on too…

so I guess I’m trying to say that find you find yourself out of patience and in the middle of a search for it, you’re not alone! πŸ™‚

oh man that is so mean!!! lol. i am with lovehim – i knew the ring was in the house, except i even knew where it was, but i still didn’t snoop, and he didn’t know i knew. i don’t plan on ever telling him because i think he’d be sad he didn’t pull off a huge surprise. i would be so mad if he had told me though, and i probably would have looked for it as well!!

i’m hoping he gives it to you very very soon πŸ™‚
