Mr. Tacos brought up my “$20 ring” I paid $25 to get sized… and that reminded me I haven’t seen it in a while. I always kept those in my jewelry box, but to be certain I checked around the counter, under the microwave, under the couch, in my makeup case, in my purse, in my car, at work, under the bed, inside the drawer, EVERYWHERE. I need to check the suitcase I brought with me to Christmas, but I am 99.9% sure I wore the ring at the airport.
So while it *might* be good planning on his part, it’s also possible I lost it! I never lose jewelry though!
Here’s hoping I… find it?

Well, I’m hoping that he knows where it is!

Alright!! I hope it means he finds it!!
Funny story – my Fiance stole my David Yurman ring to have my ering sized which I obviously didn’t notice b/c it was way too big for my finger and I never wore it! So for the first few days we were engaged I wore my e-ring on my middle finger so it wouldn’t fall off 🙂

Um, YEAH! I told him I couldn’t find it so he said to check my purse – NOPE! When I left I asked him to look for it. I’m not too excited because of the timeframe I was given… which would be after September. But weird, and a little sad if it’s gone as a result of my negligence.

Oh i’m so sorry! But you know what, I bet it will turn up! One time I lost a ring and tore my house apart searching for it. Two weeks later my printer jammed… it was INSIDE the printer! My cat had batted it off the table and onto the floor (printer was on the floor) and into the printer. sigh. lol. Just to say, you’d be surprised where things turn up!

Hmmmmmmmmmm MAYBE he brought it up because he has it and wanted to slyly let you know?

It was weird because the context of the conversation had nothing to do with the ring, that’s why I got a red flag on it. Well, if he “finds” it in a place I’ve looked I’ll act dumb. If I don’t find it at all I’ll be sad! This was the big deal ring, it was the one which was styled the same way I want my engagement ring and also the one we had sized together so I could let him know my ring size! We’ll see!

I’m sure you will find it. I lost my class ring from high school back in my junior year and last year while going somewhere with my little 4 year old sister she pulled it out of her purse. She said “Here Sissy! It’s your ring.” I couldn’t believe that she had found it! She said it was in her room, which makes sense since that was my room in high school. Just relax, it will pop up…mine did 5 years later!

EEEEeeeee!!!!! I hope you…find it?!?!?!? No, seriously, either way – I hope it turns up. It would be so great if his “timetable” was running a little ahead of schedule!
On an unrelated note – yesterday I lost my diamond earring. I was frantically searching the house. I had given up and was ready to call our insurance agency when my Dear Dear Husband came up to me with a shiny little stud!!!! Turns out, my cat had batted it UNDER our rug. I had checked the rug over and over and over again – but not under it! Crazy kitties!

My FH did that to me. He took my class ring to get the size. (I don’t really wear rings so it’s the only one I have.) Apparently he had it for over a week. I did notice that it wasn’t in it’s usual spot (on my desk), but at the time I thought i had just misplaced it. I’m so absent minded/ditzy that I didn’t realize what was going on! In fact, I didn’t catch ANY hints. I guess he’s lucky I’m so oblivious! hahahahaha

Do guys really drop hints when they are planning on proposing? It seems counter-productive, but I’m thinking that is the trend based on some of the posts.

I think they do, but not on purpose… It’s hard to be sneaky!

Mine dropped major hints. The weekend after he bought my ring (and the week before he proposed…) he said/did the following:
– commented on my gold earrings …he said he heard gold was in style lately (my ering is platinum and has gold in it, too)
– looked at my diamond tennis bracelet and commented how small the diamonds are
– commented on the size of other women’s rings at a cocktail party
– commented about the average size of engagement rings these days
One comment wouldn’t have tipped me off, but everything together….He was never very good at keeping secrets : )
