It’s here and it’s making me crazy. I know what it looks like, so I’m not going to snoop or anything. I’m trying to act all cool to my SO. (I think I’m doing pretty a good job). I know he brought it home today and I haven’t mentioned even one single word about it. But, man, am I going nuts on the inside.
Someone distract me!

That’s so exciting. You must be strong to resist the urge to snoop! It’s coming soon though!

@coffeeeeee: Ohhh get out of the house! lol! I wouldn’t be able to be in the house alone. I’d be all over that, walking around with it on my hand and all! My SO will have my ring on Oct. 1st. I’m going to be very busy that week tho! We are going camping so between working all day and then packing at night. And I believe he is only working days that week( I think he is scared to leave it home without him there haha)
Good luck! Can’t wait to hear your story!! When do you think he is going to do it?

Hehe, last night we were at a concert together and he said out of the blue “Ok, I’ll show it to you and you can try it on, but I’m not going to tell you when!” (meaning when he’s going to propose). I”m so proud of myself that I didn’t bring it up. I’m not generally not good at keeping my mouth shut, so I was pretty pleased he brought it up first.
So we got home at like 1 am and he took it out. I think he was worried I wasn’t going to like it, even though we picked it out together! So I got to put it on for like 30 seconds before he took it back. I LOVEEEEE IT. it’s so sparkly. I have to say, I never thought I would have such a sparkly engagement ring! ahhhh, i want to wear it all the time already! But I will be patient and let him do it on his terms. I think it will happen pretty soon because we already have a date less than a year away and we want to start telling our friends! (family all already know)

I feel your pain Coffeeeeee!! We picked out my e-ring on Saturday. He still needs to go pick it up as they need to change the prongs to fit the diamond cut.
It’s driving me CRAZY!!! I’m so excited and so in love with the ring that I can’t wait to get it. He too wants to surprise me and is taking every advantage to torture me on the subject LOL.
I know I have to wait at least 2 weeks before it’s ready for us and that is what’s keeping me cool. Once I know he has it I WILL GOOO NUTS!!!!! Hope he doesn’t wait too long!
Please let us know when he does pop the question and the ring!! Congratulations!!

Mine was in his apartment for MONTHS before we got engaged! I was not as self controlled as you and totally asked him about it lol

Maybe tonight when he gets home from class? I have no idea. We have plans tomorrow night with friends. So I think it will either be tonight or Thursday or maybe not until the weekend? AHHHHH i’m so excited. I can’t do anything but stare off into space imagining when/where/how it will happen! This is not good for my productivity.

@coffeeeeee: That’s cruel ! 🙂 No way would that ring have left my finger once it was on there. You have remarkable restraint and self-control!!
I’d have kept the ring and told him he could borrow it for the “official” proposal, lol.
Congrats! Can’t wait for pics!!

@Sunfire: Haha, yeah i suppose i could have done that…
Ok, I can’t say that I didn’t look for it this morning. Even though I already saw it/tried it on etc. I just want to stare at it! But I couldn’t find it.

Haha, he told me where he “hid” it. RIGHT IN PLAIN SIGHT on the bookshelf. How did i not see it? I had it on for like 20 minutes this evening. 😀 But then I put it back like a good girl.
He also told me, not to worry about it and he’ll do it when it feels right. Not after a crappy day at work or when we’re both exhausted. So I’m thinking this weekend? We don’t have any plans on Saturday…
Ok, no more masterminding the situation. I’m letting him do it on his own terms!
