The last and only other post I wrote had to do with him wanting to get married in a year. I was very kind in explaining that there isn’t a ring so stop saying things like that. Yesterday I decided to clean. I know what you’re thinking and NO I didn’t find it. However apparently I came close. When he walked in the door he noticed I had unpacked the boxes that had been sitting in a closet for the last 2 years. He flipped, asked me “did you find it.”
Um, did I find what.
“Are you just pretending you didn’t?” Once again, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT. Then it hit me, the man knew I would never expect him to hide something so important in the house so he did. I am fairly certain he’s had the ring since December so I assume that at this point he has a plan for asking me. It is taking every ounce of will power to prevent myself from ripping this house apart. I don’t want to find it, I don’t want to know what it looks like or anything, and yet….. Knowing it’s here is killing me. I have a friend that offered to come and find it just so she can look at it (apparently crazy is contagious) and tell me if I’ll like it.
So here I am STARING at the closet. Maybe he moved it. Maybe he didn’t move it knowing I didn’t find it cleaning the whole freakin closet so why would I find it now. I figured if anyone would understand the fight within myself it would be all the wonderful ladies here that are going through this right now, or have in the past. I will not search for it. I will not search for it. I wonder if it’s in a box or something else that’s harder to pin point as “it”. No, I need to stop it. I will not search for it. I refuse to tear apart the house looking for it. Anyone else go through this? Was it as hard to not search as it is for me?

I was not a waiting bee, and didn’t see my engagement coming.
BUT. If I had known there was a ring in my house, I would be damned if I didn’t find it and try to see it. Seriously. I am one of THOSE girls. You can’t tell me you’ve gotten me presents, because I will FIND THEM. Christmas is a nightmare for most people and my family. I’m not good with surprises.
You are a brave woman for not digging through that closet. Honestly, I say do NOT look for it. Let it be a surprise, and don’t ruin it. I am talking from experience, YEARS worth of peeking at my presents. Do not ruin this one for yourself!!!

LMAO- I remember when I found the actual ring box in his pants pocket…. I wanted to be surprised (even though I wanted to be sure that there was a ring in there) so I left it alone. My misery was put out soon though because he proposed a few hours later….. Now if I knew he had it for MONTHS, I would go crazy- what is he waiting on?

Oh my gods! Do they make ring sniffing animals, like pigs and truffles?!

@Tunacupcakes: That is the best idea I have ever heard.
@armychica06: I HAVE NO IDEA!! I was thinking that it was going to be in Feb then march came, then april. Honestly I think he’s waiting for nice weather. Only my SO would be waiting on something so simple.
Also, I pretty sure it’s the ring his father gave his mother, and it’s from the 1800. I am trying not to Hulk out and rip every thing out of that closet and take pictures of it on my finger. Alas, he won’t want to marry me if I let the crazy out. So tempting.
I will not search for it, I will not search for it……

HHAHAHHAHA i was THAT girl too – i knew the day Fiance brought the ring home, because he immediately went down to the basement which is just ODD. He ended up putting it in a briefcase he has that locks. I swear though, if there was a way to open that briefcase without him knowing I would have found the way.

Wow that would drive me nuts to know it’s in the house!! But I agree with @.twist.: that you should let him surprise you. When you look back on this moment, it’ll be very special to remember how he organized and waited before he proposed. On the other hand though, if it’s an accident, there’s nothing you can do about it (just like how it happened to @armychica06: )
Can’t wait to find out the rest of this story!!

I actually found my ring the day before he proposed to me. My fiance hid it in his drawer on the night stand and I was putting clothes away. He left it out in the open!!! *shakes head* Of course he doesn’t know that I found it…and I was still in shock when he proposed to me the next day.

My fiance ordered my ring right under my nose. I even signed for the package it came in and had no idea. He orders things for his computer and his car all the time so I never even thought twice about him receiving a package. After he proposed, he told me that I had signed for the package and I asked him what he had told me was in the box. Apparently, I never even asked which he said made it easy because he didn’t have to lie to me. It was definitey for the better that I was so oblivious, I would have gone crazy knowing it was in the house.

This is hilarious!!! I feel like I would be you in that situation. I mean who hides the ring in the hooooooouse. I already snoop in hiding spots and I want to find something soooo bad lmao Just to know it’s REAL and it’s there just waiting. I would be cool with that. Man…you’re a better woman than me…I want to tell you to search for it 🙂 Hahaha but I know you dont want to and youll be happier if it’s a suprise 🙂 It must be coming super soon! How exciting omgggg 😀

There is a ring hidden somewhere in my house too. Actually, we live in an apartment so there are only so many places he could have hidden. Yes, I’ve looked. I’m ashamed to say it! But I looked hard enough (and never found it) to have given up now, which is a good thing. It doesn’t haunt me anymore! I will just be patient and wait until he surprises me with it, hopefully sooner rather than later! I hope you don’t have to wait long to see it!!

Oh jeez I’m behind! It came at christmas!! There are pictures on weddingbee but I don’t know how to post a link.
I found out It was hiding in the closet. When I cleaned it out I guess I was inches from finding it. He thought I had, but no. It’s his grandmother’s ring. I love it!

hahahahahaha I’m willing to bet he moved it. I tore the house apart every chance I got for MONTHS once I accidentally saw the order confirmation on his computer. He moved it around, between his car and his sister’s place. My friends all told me it’d be at his mom’s house, they were close enough.
@Tunacupcakes: I should train my dog to do that!

Hahaha, congratulations! My Fiance knows me too well – the diamond was just sitting there for me to stare at every day. Then the ring. Torture. But.. I would have found it.
