My SO and I live together and since I work from home I always get the mail and just deal with whatever comes in, including all of his mail. Well I opened the letter that had his credit card from a jewelry store!!! So excited! haha
I’m not really ‘waiting’ per se, we know we’re getting married next year, as do our families, we have looked a venues and have a guest list drafted… so I guess I’m just waiting for the ring and the announcement to everyone else.
He wishes that I hadn’t seen it since he really, really wants this to be a surprise. Oh well!

Oh no! He can still surprise you with the time, the ring, and the way he does it, though!

@GreenEyedMoon: I agree! I really should just stop snooping around. I can’t help it hehe

That’s funny to read right now, because i’m taking a break from going through the scads of paper/mail that my bf has lying on the table, trying to cull down the mess and organize it while he’s gone for a few days. (He saves everything from important tax documents to Dunkin Donut receipts in this mess.) I hadn’t been looking at the credit card statements beyond a “yup credit card + date” just like the electric bill was “yup electric bill + date” but now I’m sure I won’t be able to resist peeking!

@kay01: Mine does the same thing, keeps every useless receipt! I am trying to get him to put them in a specific spot when comes home and empties his pockets instead of all over the place.
He just came home and opened the letter with this huge smirk on his face. LOL He loves that he’s got all the control in this situation.

I went to design my ring with FI at the jeweller’s and he still managed to surprise me. He had the stupidest excuse too! I knew he was meeting the jeweller that morning and when we met up later he told me he didn’t like the diamond’s they selected. How did I fall for that?!
My FI isn’t a good liar, or terribly creative so I’m sure you’ll be surprised too!
