DH waited a month until we were in Jamaica on vacation….I don’t know how he didn’t let it slip! I was completely surprised.

Haha, FI proposed the night he picked up the ring from the jeweler’s, he was too afraid he’d lose it if he waited!

A week… would’ve been even sooner but I was out of town. He proposed the very next time he saw me after he bought the ring.

He had it hidden for almost a month and a half!  I had no idea 🙂

6 weeks… because it took that long to come in. He bought the stone and setting seperately and then had to send out the stone to be set. He got the call to pick up the ring on a friday evening when we had plans with friends, contemplated popping the question because he didn’t want to wait but instead popped it the next night because we already had plans to cook a nice dinner and enjoy some wine and a romantic evening. It was perfect, and I’m glad he waited until the next day.

So 6 weeks until he got the ring, 24 hours of it burning a hole in his gym bag (that’s where he hid it haha).
