sooo saturday evening i went out to dinner with my SO. we went back to his house and were hanging out with some friends. i wanted to change out of my going out clothes so i went upstairs to his dresser to grab a t shirt. i wasn’t snooping, just searching for one closer to my size. long story short i found a box from a local jeweler hidden under a pile. it wasn’t very well hidden either. i did NOT open it. if it is a ring i wouldnt want to ruin it for myself. we’ve talked about what i wanted (white gold or platinum, princess cut, pave band) but other than that i kindof figured i’d let him do his thing. we also talked about a timeline of getting engaged in the spring. we’ve talked about how i’d want to be suprised etc.
soooo…..I DID NOT LOOK! i stuck it back in, grabbed a shirt and jetted outta there. i know it could be necklace as some people have pointed out recently on threads but i’m going to go ahead and continue thinking it’s a ring and if i get disappointed so be it. we are going on vacation at the end of this month and a lot of my family thinks he’s going to do it then. i honestly thought he’d wait until next spring or summer so that’d be a big suprise if he did it sooner. i also think that he would not do it on vacation because i’d expect it. anyway eeeeeeeek. i am not telling any of my family or friends about this because if it does take him a while to propose i don’t want them to be pestering me about it. so hopefully he does it soon. i DID go to the website of the jeweler and browse around at their rings haha. exciting timessssss. that is all enjoy your weekends everyone! over here on the east coast it’s a beautiful day

Either way, if it’s a ring or another piece of jewelry, it will be awesome because you’ll be getting a nice piece of jewelry!
I would try not to get your hopes up too much for the vacation; I did that and when we didn’t get engaged it kinda ruined the vacation for me. Just try and enjoy yourself and if anything happens it’s a bonus!

gah, stories like this make me want to snoop hard core through my SO’s drawers. I mean… I do need to do laundry today. lol
that’s so exciting! i hope it’s something beautiful, even if it isn’t a ring.

That’s a great attitude to have 🙂
It’s funny how there seems to be a pattern of guys hiding rings in draws and with clothes 🙂 That is where I found mine too!

@burnie217: That is super exciting!!!!! I just want to say… and I know this is awful… I would totally sneak a peak, just so I know what I was getting into. I happen to have read that story the other day about the girl getting the necklace and it broke my heart!
But, if you can stand it, then good for you! I found a ring box as well, and I HAD to look. I had a little moment of OMG! to WHY DID I OPEN THAT?! to I’m glad I did! Hehe… let us know what you decide… or if he gives it to you! 🙂

TAKE IT FROM ME, don’t expect it to be a ring. I did when I found a box hidden in the house and it was disasterous. I ruined my birthday for myself 🙁

we’ve talked about our timeline pretty well in detail and we plan on getting engaged in the next, probably 8 mos or so. i don’t think he’d propose on our vacation, too predicatable. i’m in a good waiting spot right now. i’d like to be engaged but i’m by no means upset about where we’re at in our relationship or how things are progressing. if he doesn’t do it soon i’ll be fine with it. barring any major life events as long as he hits somewhere near the timelines we’ve discussed i’ll be fine. if he doesn’t we can discuss at that time. also, if it’s not a ring, i’ll be ok too. it is fun to think about though!

Good for you for not looking! I don’t think I could have resisted the temptation 😛
I hope it is your Ering!

Wow, I don’t think I could have resisted looking! Good for you, and for not getting your hopes up too high for your vaca. Maybe he told you spring, so he could pop the question this winter and give you the surprise you wanted =). I’m happy for you and the good spot you’re in!
