I have to admit it to someone without my SO finding out and it has to be here because I know my mum will spill the beans haha I posted on here a few weeks ago that we were ordering my ring, it is being custom made and should take about a month and a half to finish – we will have it fully paid off in 2 weeks. I have no idea when I get it, it could be next month it could be at Christmas (I LOVE Christmas) I just dont know.
BUT I was super naughty yesterday when my SO was in the shower I checked his calendar and yep there it was RING FINISHED 27/07/13. So I know he will have it from the 27th onwards.
How do you cope if the ring is in your house!!?? I think I am going to go crazy, I have exams in 7 weeks so I know I wont get it unitl after then (well I hope or else I wont study one bit lol) and he cant show it to me finished (which we are both dying to see) because I think I will cry if he doesnt let me keep it.
Thanks for letting me vent !!

@littlemissbossy: It’s super hard I know, the anticipation and excitement is overwhelming!! My ring has been in the house for over a month now and I’ve stayed strong and not looked at it!! I gave in to a tiny temptation once and tried it on to check the size, but I did it with the lights off and my eyes closed the entire time…..I know, I’m a weirdo! Even though you know what your ring is going to look like, it’ll still take your breath away when you see it being offered to you by your SO. Here are two things to keep in mind the next time you’re tempted to snoop:
1. When I asked my SO if he was going to hide it, he said if I looked at it, it would be my problem. I realized he was right, I want that complete moment where this man I love so much asks me be his wife and gives me the ring. I’d only be cheating myself if I snooped further.
2. The proposal is as much his as it is yours, it’s a significant moment in a man’s life. Let him do it when and how he wants to, and let him have that moment of making you so happy.
Stay strong and congratulations!!

@littlemissbossy: My SO has had the ring since Feb. It’s hard, but in the end, it will be worth it to give them that moment they want. Just focus on exams and then practice that elusive patience.

My FI tested me by leaving the ring bag on the kitchen table when I was home alone!! I totally snooped, but he had taken the box (and ring) out of the bag… sneaky FI!!

We are date twins littlemissbossy!! That will be our 8 year anniversary. He ordered my ring two days ago and it is killing me just knowing that it will ship and I won’t know it. i really think it is natural for waiting bees to want to snoop. I agree that you will not be able to stop thinking about it now.
