Welcome!

And aww, I’m sorry! I completely understand your wanting it to be a surprise. Maybe his mom realized her mistake as soon as the words left her mouth, but she couldn’t really backtrack without it looking even worse. As hard as it is to not think about, force yourself to push the impending proposal from your mind. You may know it’s coming, but you don’t know how or when! πŸ™‚ 

I am actually in the same boat… I was with my guy at his dads house while they did some work in the garage, and I heard his dad tell him “I saw the picture of the ring you sent me.” Then everything got really quiet. I am trying to pretend I heard nothing… But now he is asking if I wanna go away this weekend and where want to go… We shall see!

@FutureMrsRosser:  Welcome to the bee!! πŸ™‚ that is such a beautiful ring you picked out! And congratulations on the soon-to-happen (hopefully) proposal! It’s unfortunate his mother let it slip but I think it goes to show how excited she is to have you join her family officially. Good luck waiting, it’s an exciting (and anxiety inducing) time haha

 

@FutureMrsRosser:  I am so with you on the always making plans! I organise everything for my SO and I. I even told him that he would have to start taking me on dates so that it’ll seem normal and I won’t get all suspicious and potentially ruin the surprise when he does decide to pop the question. Haha, oh boys! And check, got my nails done too! πŸ˜‰

@FutureMrsRosser:  Haha. If she didn’t ruin it for you, the big “This ring has sold on March 19” would have. πŸ˜€

Welcome to the Bee!  You knew he was going to buy the ring so I wouldn’t feel like your surprise is ruined!  Besides, he may have something special planned months from now so you will still be surprised! Good luck!

@FutureMrsRosser:  I feel you. Not because I accidentally found out, but because I picked it out and he handed me his CC and told me to order it. Then I got it the day it came in the mail and even though I was so excited I felt like I missed out on the surprise. So like a normal crazy person I wore the ring all that day until he came home from work at 11pm and then put it back in the box and gave it to him. We went out for a drink and I confessed that I wanted it so bad and had been wearing it all day. He proceeded to not give it to me for almost a solid week. I was starting to foam at the mouth. lol. Then I started to feel like he didn’t really want to give it to me and questioning everything (cause I’m a dipstick sometimes), but one day he said let’s go to the river and I thought “Crap, this is it”. So we went for the walk and ran into my ex, who I HATE and his wife. Well yeah, that totally made me forget about the ring. We continued walking up this creek and I’m trying to figure out where to put my foot for my next step and there was that box right in front of my face and AHHHHHH surprise! It was beautiful and special without the secrecy and total surprise every woman dreams of.

Beautiful ring!!!! It sucks that his mum told you he bought it, but he may not have a plan of proposing for a few months! So, the actual proposal could be a surprise πŸ™‚

Aww, congratulations! If it makes you feel any better I accidently found the receipt AND the ring (the receipt while looking for my checkbook in our “important papers” file and the ring while putting some laundry away. Yeah, my FI is not good at hiding things, ha!) and I still had to wait almost two months for a proposal. It sounds like we have similar stories! At least you’ll definitely be surprised- and relieved- when it finally happens!
