@Missmorningglory: 

Nah, you’re not. I think we all go through phases where all we want to do is snoop.

I especially hate it when you KNOW there’s something in the other room, and you can hear it taunting you… ‘Gwwwennn….. I’m over here Gwen. You know you wanna take a peek at me. Just a little one. I won’t tell J, I promise. It’ll be between you and me…. He’ll never have to know. Come on… One peek won’t hurt.’

GAH!

I know J doesn’t have a ring yet, but he leaves his receipts laying around in our computer room, so it’s difficult to see them sit there and not go through them. There was only one time I snooped through them, but I was tidying up the room because his parents were coming to visit for a few days. I just happened to glance at one of them, and it was the balance of his Line of Credit (he’s trying to pay that down so that he can put the cost of a ring on it).

I snooped one other time in his bathroom, but I paid the price for that one… I got locked inside! And I had to be at work in less than 15 minutes!! The door knob is wonky on his bathroom, and I got stuck in there for a good 10 minutes. Boy, did I ever learn my lesson. Haven’t snooped since. Damn karma *shakes fist*

Gwen.

I so totally snooped, and I regret it still to this day. I had a feeling it was coming, but then saw a set of emails back and forth from the jeweler (a family friend of Fiance who happens to be an independent jeweler). I think I would have known it was coming anyway, but after seeing the emails I knew for sure it was. I had a guilty conscience, so I confessed, which did not make him very happy, but he got over it and went ahead with his plan anyway! We’ve been engaged for almost 6 months now and I don’t think he even remembers that I snooped!

P.S. I’m the type of person that unwraps then re-wraps Christmas presents because I can’t stand the suspense!

Don’t snoop anymore!! Let him surprise you the way he wants to. The proposal is just as important to him as you- don’t ruin it by figuring out everything ahead of time.

I was pretty certain that he got the ring the day that he did, but as it was coming close to the Christmas season, he tried to throw me off the scent by insisting he had been Christmas shopping.  I couldn’t help but peek into “his” closet in the office (we each have a closet in the house that we hide our presents in) and saw the bag from the jewelry store.  I’m not going to lie – I did a little happy dance. 

For days afterwords, I would open the closet door to take a peek at the bag, but I refused to open it to see the ring – I chose to keep that moment for when he proposed.  I am so glad that I did because the proposal still came as a complete surprise.  Yes, even though I knew the ring had been purchased, he chose to propose when I was least expecting it, and the ring (and the proposal itself) was even better and more perfect than I could have ever imagined.

πŸ˜‰ Just try to keep the snooping to a minimum, now that you’ve had confirmation.

That’s so exciting that he has the ring coming now!

I try not to snoop, because I like being surprised. πŸ™‚

If me and my guy didn’t live apart, I would be trying so hard not to snoop. I’m visiting him right now…and I admit I looked around for some confirmation…but nothing. I’m starting to wonder if he has the ring at all. >.>

@Missmorningglory: HA! I think my SO would love if I just said “So, we’re engaged now, right?” I think it’d take all the pressure off him Tongue out
