So I have two dates that I think SO is going to propose pretty definitely for sure. For those Bees who also KNEW, did you still enjoy the proposal? Were you still surprised at all by how he did it or anything? Also, were you able to adapt an appropriately “surprised face” or did he find out you knew beforehand?

Yup. At one point, I knew almost down to the minute (granted, that was 2 minutes before). I still loved it and was giggly and giddy the whole time. He knew that I knew, so I didn’t have to pretend to be surprised.

@Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug: I know what weekend but it’s 4 days and he could suprise me and do it earlier. I know he’s getting the ring in 2 days ( on monday!!!!!!!!!) and that weekend we are going camping with both of our families. So I’m assuming it’s that weekend. EEEKKK! I can’t even wait lol

I knew the exact day he was going to propose and yes, it was super exciting… He knew that I knew so I didn’t have to act surprised. Honestly though, I was just so happy/giddy it was as if he had surprised me! 🙂 Congrats in advance!

I figured it would happen while we were on our road trip vacation. There was one stop that I thought was a bit more likely than any other location. When we got there, like @mepayne, I kind of knew down to the minute- I could see the ring box protruding from his pocket. Was it still special? YES! Did I still cry? You bet. Was it still perfect? Absolutely. Is it still “surprising” because it’s a unique and lovely moment? Yup! You don’t know what your SO will say, and you don’t know how he will lead into it. Even though I knew it was coming, my favorite part of the story is how my DH segued into the proposal and the whole awkward/lovey excitement that we both felt.
FWIW, I’ve played it off all along that it was a complete surprise though- he has no idea I had a hunch. I lie through my teeth when people ask if I knew because it’s more important to me that he feels like all his planning was a success 🙂

I knew it was one of two days. I didn’t know when during the day until minutes/seconds before. 🙂
