I was putting away his clothes one fine morning last December and I found a bag in his closet from the jeweler I had found a ring I fell in love dwith!!
The hunt was on, I then tore apart the house until I found it…it was the least I could to contain my excitement (and keep my secret) until he proposed about a week later!!
Is there anything you have done you don’t think you will ever tell your FI?!

I knew about my ring too and I am never planning on telling him because he thinks he pulled off a huge surprise!!

Haha, I knew about it as well. Well he told me that he had it but I went through his suitcase when he was visiting and found that he had it on him. Took a long time to propose though because he wanted to make it special and do it on our big vacation.

My FI convinced me he didn’t get the ring, it was terrible and I (as usual) bought it- until the FedEx man showed up wanting the signature of a 21+ year old with a photo i.d.

I knew about my ring, too, and I didn’t tell him until like a year later, but he was so sad when he found ou I had known! I shouldn’t have told him!

@mouse – I’m glad you said that, I had been considering telling him but now I don’t think I ever will!

I knew about his surprise too, but I’d never tell him. He and my sister were in cahoots and I saw her out the window from my room running something to his car (I was away on business in the same city my sister lives in, he drove up to surprise me and she was taking me out to dinner to keep me out of my room while he set everything up).
Longest dinner of my LIFE!

I didn’t know about my ring but I have something I won’t be telling my FI for a while.
Christmas morning I was trying to wake him up and started to feel bad that I hadn’t gotten him enough for Christmas so I ran downstairs and was going to write him a “gift certificate” for a chandelier for his guitar room (I had been looking for one and couldn’t find one I liked) but I thought that was lame so I jumped on ticketmaster and got him two tickets to see Gov’t Mule I printed them out right before he walked down the stairs. I felt like such a loser but it was his favorite Christmas gift and he’s clueless!

FI proposed on vacation and I was getting something in our suitcase while he was showering one night and felt the ring box in a pants pocket. This was on day 2 or 3 of the vacation and he didn’t propose until day 10, so I had to wait for a while. I told him about it a couple of months later and he wasn’t too upset. We tell each other everything so I can’t imagine hiding something like that from him.

I knew the weekend he was going to propose. He had planned a surprise birthday weekend so I was already suspicious, but then I heard a conversation he tried to have in code with his friend. They never said ring, engaged, propose or anything wedding related but I just knew they were talking about him proposing. Even though I knew it was going to happen, I was still caught off guard when he asked. I don’t think I will tell him I knew though, he seemed so proud of himself for pulling off a great weekend.

I had smart lipo done on my lower stomach after diet and exercise didn’t get rid of the very last, teeny tiny little bit (i had ONE pound of fat removed….one stupid pound!)…i didn’t tell him b/c he was deployed at the time and i wanted him to be all surprised by my smokin’ hotness =]. Now i feel like too much time has elapsed to fess up! It’s been like, 2 years! I know he’d be okay with it though–he knows i want a mommy makeover in like, 10 years, and he’s 100% on board if it’s what i want.

I knew he was going to propose, and when, because my sister SUCKS and ruined it for me. I never told him, though and never will! He was SO proud of himself for “surprising” me. :/
Stupid sister. I WANTED to be surprised.

My MOH told me he was going to propose and that he’d bought a ring. There is no reason he ever needs to know that 🙂

I like how everyone’s story (but mine!) is ring-related, lol
