    I was suprised when it was done but I knew that it was coming.  My husband had the ring for about a year before we got engaged.

    I knew it was coming eventually and guessed it would be on my bday weekend. He pulled a fast one on me and proposed a month before ๐Ÿ™‚ It was great though.

    I knew it was coming, I was with him when he bought the ring. I didn’t know when at first, but he let the cat out of the bag with his comments about things that weekend.

    Not really surprised at the timing of the proposal. We had already looked at rings before.. i kind of picked it out actually ๐Ÿ™‚ It was our 10 year anniversary when he proposed so i kind of thought he would then…

    HOW he did it was a surprise though. He made a photo book of “us through the years”..pics of us from 10 years ago till now and when i went to each page he said a favorite memory at that time in our relationship. it was soo cute and the tears were flowing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ummm I was not surprised that he proposed, or that he proposed in Mexico. I was a little surprised that he did it the first night, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kind of…..we had looked rings and decided when we were going to get married. But the timing totally surprised me.

    I knew we were going to get engaged but I didn’t know when – I started to figure it out the morning of but even at that, I was still overwhelmed when he got down on one knee and pulled the ring out of his pocket…

    Maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised because we had made it clear we were heading in that direction and I had just moved and found a job where he was at and we had been dating a number of years.  But I was still surprised and was happy that I was surprised.  I guess he had dropped a few hints like ‘you’re sure you don’t care about a ring’ and talking about the future a lot more.  I just kinda thought he’s seriously thinking about it.

    I knew it was coming–he started acting fidgety. Plus, i knew it’d be within the 2 week time frame he got back from Iraq =]. Then we went and picked out the setting!

    I knew it was coming but after so many “I wonder if” moments, I really tried to stop thinking about it.  I’ll admit I had a fleeting “I wonder” moment as were driving to Red Rock Canyon for a hike, but shoved it aside because I didn’t want to ruin the day.  Little did I know that was EXACTLY why we were going for a hike.

    i was kind of suprised. i had no reason not to be, other than a gut feeling. we didn’t talk about it, or go ring shopping, or talk about the ring or anything. he didn’t talk me anywhere fancy. we went camping, with my family, which is normal and something i love doing. i think i was at the point where everything we did, i thought “this could be it!” but i tried to convince myself that it wasn’t going to happen then because i was waiting for our dating year anniversary, and he tricked me, it happened to be on our anniversary of the day we met, which was a month before we started dating. so it was a bit of a surprise, and i was glad. i didn’t want to know.

    We knew we were getting married summer of 2010, but there wasn’t a formal proposal at first. I tought he was going to propose in the summer, so I was totally surprise when he proposed on our 8 month anniversary while we were walking our dog.
