    my fiance only had the ring like a day before he gave it to me, which was probably smart of him.

    I “accidentally” found it in the bottom of his desk drawer, underneath his tax forms.

    What can I say? I was eager & I’m a major snooper.

    I can’t say I didn’t look for mine, but I didn’t find it.  At one point, I found this box hidden behind a stack of books and was totally excited about it. I waited for my sweetie to get in the shower and checked it.  Turned out to be…the external hard drive.  NOT exciting.  I told him later and his response was “As if I’d hide it somewhere that easy!”

    I knew when it was delivered to our house. We picked it out online together and I answered the door and signed for it. I wanted SO BADLY to open the package and insepct it, but I didn’t. (You know, just to make sure the online retailer was legit!) That would have been obvious… I had to pretend it was just another delivery.

    I’m realizing now that I should have voted “I’ll give you the story”, but I actually voted “No”

    I didn’t find my actual ring, but I found the original ring that Fiance wanted to give me. His grandmother gave him a ring to give me, but it could not be re-sized, and when he has at the jeweler inquiring about it, he found the one that is now my ring. The day before he proposed, I saw his grandma’s ring (he had left it right on his desk!) and thought it was for me (I guess it technically originally was). When he proposed, it made my actual ring even more of a surprise (and a very PLEASANT surprise – no offense to his grandma, but I like my ring MUCH better)

    My guy bought a “cracker jack” ring so I could pick out a real one later- and he left the tag it came on sitting on our computer desk the morning before the proposal.  Being that I had the flu that week and it was a week from valentine’s day I didn’t even think about it again until we got home from our proposal hike in Sedona.  I was utterly clueless despite finding that.

    I didn’t find it!

    He hid it in his lock box where he keeps important legal documents and paperwork!!! 

    He told me once it was in his pocket and he was going to propose but decided to wait since I was stressed with work and school and not having a great day…

    but the day he did, it was perfect!

    this thread is reminding me of bride wars, anyone else??!

    I was there when we bought/ordered it from T&Co., there when we picked it up, and saw it everytime I opened one of our closet doors. That little blue bag just stared me down. lol.

    He hid it in his old porn collection (no, he doesn’t watch them anymore. At least I don’t think so…). How horrible right? I was looking for a DVD and there it was! I put it on and danced around the house for like an hour. Then I guess my sister dropped and hint and he moved it and I never found it again. He hid it in the broken down stereo we had put aside to toss out. I mean, what if I had decided to toss it out? Boys…
