Hi everyone! I posted before but never on the waiting boards…I have been with my boyfriend for over three years (I called him my Fiance in a previous post because I felt silly asking a question about bridesmaids dresses when I am not “officially” engaged yet! ah!)…anyway my boyfriend and I picked out a ring a few months ago, and I had it sized a quarter bigger than my actual size because I have pretty big knuckles. He had me try it on again once he got it back and we thought it was a tiny bit loose. I mentioned that I thought he should send it back to the jeweler to get it in my actual size…welllllllll, I sort of snooped… I went on to his computer and his yahoo mail was up and I saw a receipt from the jeweler about the ring being resized again…in the comment section it said “please resize ring down 1 size and complete by May 14th).. ahhhhhh !!! I thought we were going to get engaged mid-summer, but do you think it will be happening sooner?
I kind of feel guilty that I looked and found that since I know he wants it to be a surprise, and I can’t talk about it to anyone in real life!! What do you all think?!

@Sarahbear: I know I feel like SUCH a terrible person!!! This secret will go with me to the grave minus telling all you bees !!! lol
but may 14th is not symbolic of anything!!! and it’s a monday…so who knows.

He may not be planning to do it on the 14th. My fiance proposed on a day with absolutely no significance. Oooh, now every time he mentions going out you’re going to get nervous and want to get all dressed up ahaha

So bad!! 😉 hehe…
Well, don’t feel bad about snooping and not being surprised. He may not necessarily be proposing on that specific day. He might just want it to be ready so that it will be ready for the next day..or the weekend..etc. So really, you still have no clue when he’ll do it, and it will be a wonderful surprise for you anyway 🙂
But either way…. EEEEE!!! So exciting!! :):)

Maybe he wants it early to show someone before he proposes? Just a thought! Congrats!

@Sarahbear: ah lol you are right, time to go shopping ! 😀
@shinythingsrule: true! We are going away at the end of the month so he may be waiting to do it then, but he is really good at “completely” throwing me off so even after having read that, I still am completely unsure!
@Eulalia: you mean show it to me? just kidding! He has had it for a few months already though, but it could be!
@Rush1986: oh man, i know I really learned my lesson this time…and thank you for the early congrats…i’d say 40% of me still thinks it could happen later and the other 60% is saying obviously its going to be sooner…I am definitely going to do my best to not think about it! (looks like im doing a great job huh lol)
@strawbabies: I was wondering the same thing!!! But it did say somewhere else on the sheet the actual number the ring needed to be sized too, so once I had that reassurance i closed it out immediately!

ah, good luck with this large surprise and weight on your sholders! I had to carry this weight around for a month of so. My fiance and I talked about looking at rings and we ended up finding a few that I really loved and lone and behold a receipt comes in the mail! I asked if I can open it and he said yes even though it was addressed to him. I was expecting a coupon from them in the mail but thought it was strange they addressed it to him. THEY made a huge mistake by mailing him the receipt after they were asked to not send anything by mail and only contact him at work. Then I knew and I felt horrible!!! About a month later we went on a ‘surprise’ trip that I also found out about and on the trip I accidently found the ring box in his backpack when I was trying to find my wallet…I wasn’t too surprised when he proposed that evening but we do tell everyone that I was and leave out the long story. sorry didn’t mean to go into full detail.
It is really exciting knowing already!!! I loved and but I also wished it was a totol surprise.

Bad bee LOL
When I ordered a promise ring for my SO I made sure it got to me before a certian date but I wasn’t planning to give it to him till 2 weeks later. I just wanted to have it so that I wouldn’t have to worry about it and because sometimes things happen that are out of our control and not our fault. Also sometimes there mey be delays with jewellery stores. You always want to give yourself enough time.
So I wouldn’t worry about it, just enjoy every day as it comes 🙂

@I3ee: “but he is really good at “completely” throwing me off so even after having read that, I still am completely unsure!” <– this is a good thing! Haha :). Relax and enjoy the fact that it will be happening sometime during your timeframe, and it will more than likely be a complete surprise!
@kcweddinggirl: Oh no! That sucks that the company messed up and that your SO didn’t hide it on his body or in a better place! I have also found my ring (not finished with the stone though), but will never tell him! My SO is bad at hiding things. It was in his sock drawer! I mean, come on, I do all the damn laundry at our place, LOL!

Its soooo hard not to snoop! i was alone in the house last night foldin laundry and it was SO tough not to tear through the drawers. But at the same time, I want to know if he had moved the ring from his parents house to our house! I want to be prepared for it to happen!
You want to be suprised, but at the same time, its tough not to snoop! I’m a planner by nature so want to ready when it does happen 🙂
Hang in there!
