    @FutureMrsRosser:  don’t look! I was in a similar situation and as tempted as I was to look, I stopped myself. I casually looked in a few spots, but he hid it so well! I’m glad I didn’t find it!

    I think you will regret it if you look. It will be even more special if you wait. πŸ™‚

    I know I’d try to be strong, but in the end I would look for it and wear it when he wasn’t home! 

    It just can’t help myself πŸ™‚

    Please don’t look!! I did and i regret it sooo much!!


    I suspected it was in the house and although i wasn’t actively trying to find it i just tried one place it might have been and it was. Then i went back to that place to open the box because i couldn’t resist. It was bad of me and knowing it was there but he hadn’t asked yet made me crazyy. Luckily it wasn’t for long because he proposed that night but i really wish i had been surprised.

    Do you guys live together? Because if it was my house/garage too, I would totally snoop until I found the ring, do a little happy dance, and try it on before putting it back in it’s hiding spot. I know that’s the wrong answer and most bees are going to tell you to not spoil the surprise and that it’s awful to snoop, but you asked what I would do – and I know from experience that I have zero willpower in situations like this, haha!

    That’s a better hiding job than my guy first came up with. He left the box on the middle of his desk in our shared home office XD!!!

    I sat on my hands in misery!

    As soon as he got home I chewed him out about that temptation and had him go and actually hide it somewhere. I didn’t look for it but he did a good job the second time, I didn’t see it again until he proposed!

    Was it worth it… absolutely!

    O my! i have zero willpower, i would of snopped! FH and i picked out ring together so i knew what i looked like, and i even went with him to pick it from jewerler when it was ready, so i knew it was coming, just didnt know when i would get it!

    So, if it was me, i would look. But, if you want to be surprised, dont snoop!

    @FutureMrsRosser:  Don’t look, you’ll regret it. I didn’t find the actual ring, but found a receipt. I felt quilty for looking at it, even though I accidentally found it while doing laundry. Also, it only had payment info. on it…BUT I still felt guilty. I’m in the same boat…I know it’s coming soon but don’t know when.

    Are you asking what I would do, or what you should do?


    Because what you should do is stay well away and put it from your mind.


    And what I would do is don a set of spy-goggles and sneak in there all ninja-style to snoop.


    Yeah… good luck with that.

    I totally looked when I knew my Fiance had my ring in the house. He didn’t even hide it somewhere good… It was literally in the first place I looked (top drawer of dresser). I slammed the drawer shut and ran downstairs… but went back up like 2 minutes later to take a peek. I couldn’t help it!! It definitely did not ruin the moment when he proposed, but he still has no idea that I saw it before he officially gave it to me, lol.

    **I picked out my own ring (Blue Nile), so I knew what it looked like as well. I just wanted to see it sparkle in real life!

    Don’t look at it!! If this were me, I would also tell my SO that I knew that ring was in the garage, and he’d better move it soon because it was too tempting!

    I knew when the ring arrived. I looked everywhere and couldn’t find it. I confessed to my Fiance at night that I have been snooping. He laughed really hard and told me exactly where the box was. Once I knew where it was, I didn’t go near it. It is something we laugh about now. I used to be a control freak who had to know where everything is πŸ™‚

    I would look!  I actually did look when that same thing happened to me.  He left it in a totally obvious place then went out of town for two weeks, and I even TOLD him that I would go snooping if he left it there, but he did anyway.  So, I never told him that I looked, and he never asked.. But I don’t really regret it.
