So, this weekend, I decided I was finally going to clean our closet. I look up at the the top shelf on “his side” and think “wow, there’s just a shoebox up there. I could totally put one of these big boxes of summer things up there!” I probably shouldn’t have looked in the box, but I seriously just thought it was a pair of his shoes, or unimportant odds and ends. So I open it. Business cards, wires, random paperwork… so I figure I’ll just ask him later where he wants to put this stuff. And then I see it. A ring box. I had a feeling that he’d bought one already, but I didn’t have proof until that moment. I actually asked myself outloud, “do I really want to look?……..” And then finally I said “……….yes. Yes I do.” And I looked. And let me tell you, it’s so freaking pretty. I couldn’t imagine a prettier ring (I’ll wait to share details for when I actually have it on my finger). He must have gotten help from one of my friends, because it’s exactly what I would pick out.
I had to check again this morning after he went to work, to be sure that it wasn’t a dream.
Obviously, I’m never ever going to tell him that I found it. I’ll just casually ask him if I can put stuff on that shelf so he can rehid it. But it’s weird, I sort of thought finding the ring would make me more anxious, but instead I’m just feeling very calm about the whole thing… although I’m sure I’ll feel differently when few months have passed without a proposal 🙂
I just had to tell SOMEBODY!!

That is exciting!! There is a ring hidden in my apartment somewhere and I have yet to find it. That is good because honestly, I don’t want to ruin the surprise. I bet you are dying to know when he is going to propose. Do you have any idea? Did you have a timeline? I think my boyfriend will be proposing in the next month or so, most likely in March but I’m not positive.

@shirasagi: I think it’s going to happen this March, based on the timeline he gave me. Looks like we’re timeline twins!!
@mrshersch74: I was a little concerned about what he was going to pick out, so the fact that I know he got a good one makes me relax a little. Not that the ring is what’s really important to me, but it’s nice to have one you like 🙂 I don’t think I’ll regret looking, mostly because I wouldn’t have been able to sleep until I got to see the inside of that box! I would feel worse about it if I had gone snooping on purpose. Besides, the proposal itself will still be surprise, which is the important part 🙂

So, I went to “visit” it this morning before I went to work and it’s gone! He noticed that I had moved some stuff around in the closet yesterday, so maybe he decided to pick a better hiding spot?

Yay! Congratulations! Can’t wait to see pictures!!
I “visit” my wedding band way more than I would like to admit. Fiance picked on me the first time I did it and now I wait until he’s gone to bust open the safe and stare at that pretty little eternity band!
