@LastGirlStanding:  Congrats! Sounds like an exciting time for you. 

I have no good advice for the wait though. Good luck.

How awesome!  I would be bouncing off walls had I known my engagement was coming… I am happy I had no idea! LOL

Can’t wait to see a picture 🙂

Yay!  He’s going to have the ring!  If it makes you feel better, because we had mine custom ordered as well, I had to try on the ring when it arrived with my eyes closed to make sure it fit.  And then I had to give it back!  It was about 3 weeks from when it arrived to when he asked.  I’m still amazed that I knew where he was hiding it, and I managed not to look.

@LastGirlStanding:  eeee! That’s so exciting!! It sucks that is wasn’t ready yet but it wievens such a surprise when he does propose and that beautiful ring can finally find its home on your finger!!! I’m in a similar place as you, as we ordered the ring mid-may…even though the place put a different “date promised” on the reciept (so she said) since I helped pick the ring out. It HAS to be coming somewhere around that date and I’ve got ants in my pants already! Ou can’t wait to see what your ring looks like and hear about your proposal!!!!

You are so lucky he’s not waiting long! FI waited for about a month from when he picked it up (which I knew when) to when he proposed. Even harder was that when he brought it home, he had me try it on to make sure it fit properly. I wish I had my eyes closed, cause I seriously did not want to take it off. We didn’t live together until we were engaged, but I was over at his place enough to have had plenty of time to look for it. Proud to say, I was a good girl and didn’t snoop.

@LastGirlStanding:  It was only because it was SO important to him.  Oh, and he really got me the day before he actually proposed.  Little box, wanted to get me something special before we drove up to his parents for the charity dinner event…..absolutely to die for beautiful black pearl earrings.  It didn’t occur to him that I’d think it was the ring!  It was that moment of Oh…  followed by Oh holy crap, those are gorgeous! 

And although I hate to admit it, he DID have to pry my hand open to get the ring off me when I tried it on.  I had my eyes closed, but my hand was clenched tight and I had my other hand wrapped around it!
