So, I’ve posted before that I knew that my SO bought my dream ring – and I always seem to find out things I shouldn’t. For instance, I knew he bought the ring because he had logged into paypal on my phone (months ago, mind you) and when he paid on Etsy, I got a notification that flashed up on my phone that said “You’ve made a payment to….” I swore myself to NEVER tell him, because I knew he’d be heartbroken.
WELL – it happened again today. I decided to go home for lunch & when I opened up our screen door, wedged inbetween the handle and the door frame was an envelope with a perfect little box inside. I freaked. I was going to go inside and make a sandwich but I got so antsy, excited and freaked out (that he would come home for it) that I left, put the packaged back in the door and bolted. LOL.
Now, my dilemma is this: I get off an hour before him. I don’t know what to do! I thought about running to the store, or doing something like that to ensure that he gets home before me but I need a good plan, one that doesn’t seem suspicious.
I am freaking out right now, in a good way. We head to MEXICO on Thursday and I’m not sure I can contain my excitement…
For those Bee’s that knew about the engagement (when they weren’t supposed to) did you feel like the “moment” was ruined? Were you still surprised?

@FutureMrsM87: Its’ not ruined, just tell him that he got a package, and move on. It’s only ruined if you let it be. 🙂 Have fun in Mexico!
If it’s really bothering you, then go to the mall for a last minute purchase for the trip. One can never have enough window shopping time. 🙂

I think you’re excitement right now is a good indication that your proposal has definitely not been ruined and you’ll be suitably over excited when it happens 🙂
But I have absolutely no idea what you think should do right now! Wish you loads of luck though x

Thanks Ladies! I am super excited & I don’t want him to know that I knew he got a packaged because he knows that I’m so curious that I would ask questions or find out what it is.
I think a diversion to the store is a good idea. I’ll linger around there as much as I can, even though I don’t need anything right now!
@MaidMarian – good point, I am over the moon excited. I can’t imagine that when he actually proposes that there won’t be a whole new wave excitement. I always dreamed of a surprise proposal where I had no clue, but I guess that’s not how it’s meant to be! 🙂

@FutureMrsM87: Go shopping for some travel snacks this afternoon!
Yeek, that is exciting!!! You’re so lucky! 🙂
Have a good trip! (and don’t eat raw veggies in Mexico. . . I speak from experience!)

@FutureMrsM87: I think after work you need to go to the store and get a new dress for your Mexico trip or some better sunscreen. Oh and perhaps a nice pair of flip flops. That should keep you busy until he comes home 😉

@FutureMrsM87: Do you ever work late? Say you’re working late.
Or (unless you have something planned already), text him and be like “I got the urge to cook ________, I’m stopping at the store after work to pick up ingredients”.
Or “I need to pick up some last minute things for Mexico, I will be home late.. going to X store.. do you need anything?”
Just make sure it doesn’t sound out of character lol.

@FutureMrsM87: I knew he ordered the ring (because I helped design it), but I wasn’t supposed to know when it arrived. And I totally found out (he thinks he was sneaky, so I’ll never tell!). I also found the box (I wasn’t sure if he was keeping it at work), but I was good and didn’t peak at the ring. Also, I thought he might possibly do it a certain day, but I was still surprised when he actually did it!
Also, there’s always the surprise of what he’ll actually say! Don’t worry, your proposal will still be amazing, even if you know it’s coming!

also, definitely go out to the store or something after work so he can properly hide your ring before you get home!

@Creiddylad That’s a good idea! I need to get some magazines too!
@megz06 I bought SO much sunscreen the other day, but I do need a new pair of flip flops.. Hmm, good thinking!
@canarydiamond We work at the same place! So I could stay late and work, but we aren’t allowed to get OT this time of year, so he would definitely think it was fishy. I like the dinner plan, brilliant!
@pineapplez17 You sound just like me! If I told him I accidentally found it, he would totally think I was snooping.
Thanks everyone! I’m going to the store to get snacks, magazines, a new pair of flip flops and possibly dinner (if I can think of what to make LOL)… Thanks for keeping my sane.
I hope in a week or so, I’lll have a proposal story to post!
