Nope, he kept it well-hidden. But it also might have been because we do not live together.

I didnt find it but he told me he hid it in a shoe box. That would have been the last place I checked too!

I had been going online looking for vintage rings and he got the impression “somehow” that he was not going to be able to find the right ring on his own. So we went shopping. We found the right ring but we left the store without him buying it so I didn’t know if he got it or when he would give it to me.

I wouldn’t have looked anyway, but he proposed about a day after it came in. He told me he had plans to wait another week or so, but was too excited. I loved it and it meant that I didn’t see it coming (it was a Thursday night.)

Nope, I never found it! He told me after he proposed that he had kept it hidden in his golf bag! (obviously I wouldn’t look there) πŸ™‚

I looked for it, but didn’t find it. Found out later that he hid it in his Mom’s sock drawer at her house!

Nope he never had the ring in the apartment but he had the receipt that I knew. I searched everywhere for that freaking thing! Turns out he tapped it on the bottom back half of his dresser, you not only had to take out the 2 dresser drawers but also remove a little piece of cardboard to get to it. He did an awesome job finding it but thats because he knew I’d be looking πŸ˜‰

Nope, but probably only b/c he got too excited and gave it to me on the day he got it πŸ™‚

Yep, he had it in the middle console in the truck.  Doh!  Good thing because, shh, it wasn’t my style.  Was able to adjust and then be “excited” when he gave it to me.  I love him so I’m happy but, man, he missed all the hints and direct “I really don’t like yellow gold” comments.

I didnt find the ring per se but found photos of it at my sisters house since she helped him pick it out in HER sock drawer lol! He didnt actually bring it home till the day he proposed, and he had to have his boss drive him across town to get it since we were in the middle of the worst snowstorm in 50 years here and he has a mustang that slides in the snow πŸ™‚

I didn’t find the ring itself because he proposed the day it came in the mail (he ordered it offline and had it shipped to his office), but I knew exactly what was coming!  He inadvertently left his gmail open on my laptop, and I suspected he had been ring shopping because he had recently asked me for a lot of specific input regarding engagement rings.  

I just couldn’t resist!  I was just way too curious as to whether he had bought a ring, or if he was just asking me questions about what I liked again.  I found the email confirmation complete with pictures and I was so excited!  I didn’t let him know I was on to him though, because he was set on surprising me.

He was hiding it well, but on our flight to go on vacation, I felt something hard in his pocket.  I realized what it was right away but I didn’t let on at all πŸ™‚
