Seriously. I am honestly going to explode if I don’t!
Boyfriend has the ring. I know exactly where it is and how to get to it, but I’ve been a good roomie and haven’t looked at it without his permission. I’ve seen it twice (once right after we picked it up) and it really is perfect for me. It was one of the rings (last one to be exact) that I tried on when we went ring shopping and he said he could see my face light up when it was on my hand – neither of us thought that would happen since I’m not a big fan of rings or jewelry. He made the final call though and he couldn’t have done any better.
He goes to talk with my parents tomorrow night. I’m not a huge fan of the tradition, but it was important to him and I’ve always felt like the proposal process should be done on his terms (for us personally). So I helped him figure out what to say to my mom on the phone when he called to see about stopping by to speak with them – she, by the way, had no idea I was in the room (lol!)
So, basically, it could happen at any point after tomorrow night!!!!
And now I feel slightly better and less likely to cave completely and text my best friend about it all!

So exciting! I also knew when my FI had the ring and had a feeling about when he was going to propose (although he didn’t know that). I found it SO MUCH HARDER to wait once I knew it was happening..so good luck! Try and keep yourself as busy as possible and DON’T talk about it to your SO at all. Let him surprise you!

@nber0815: Lol! I’m actually quite calm at the moment. I think its because he is taking another step towards actually proposing. We figured out earlier this year that he hadn’t proposed yet because he was just scared of the process and had no idea what he was doing – that’s when I offered up the idea of baby steps (first you talk about marriage, then you look at rings online, then you look in the store, then you pick a store you like most, then you go and see them in person, etc.).
He still doesn’t know how to propose. I told him I would say yes no matter what, but he feels very strongly that he wants to at least try to do something sweet. I told him he should start a list of places or things that are important to us/me/him and then try to figure it out from there. No clue if he has actually done that though.
His parents had the best advice though: don’t throw the ring at her. True story, his dad was so nervous about proposing to his mom that he kind of threw it at her. Makes for an amazing story now though!

@LoggerHead91207: I’m sure he’ll come up with something great! FI had a plan to propose at the top of a mountain we climbed..but bad weather foiled that plan, so he ended up proposing along a river in VT where we had pulled over to take pictures. He got so nervous he just couldn’t wait for a better moment. Which is adorable. And it now means we have a NEW place that’s important to us 🙂
