Yes, I did know. We discussed everything openly, picked the ring together, and decided to propose to each other on the same day, which turned out to be this past Chrismas day, curled up in front of the fireplace, with his family. 🙂 He got there first, but I still did my proposal too!

My ring came hidden in this lego spaceship he built:

And my proposal was accomplished through this spoon I slipped into his piece of cake post-Christmas dinner:

FutureWife517 Aw thank you! He was nervous about it so I had to turn it into a competition! Our terms were that the proposal-race officially started the moment we pulled into the driveway of his parents’ place! If I hadn’t known it was happening ahead of time I probably would have fainted, lol, so it’s a good thing. We were both nervous enough this way!

@FutureWife517:  I knew that he was thinking about it because he suggested going to look at rings.  However I had no idea how soon it was happening.  The same day we went to look at rings he went out later alone and bought one (which I didn’t know) and then proposed less than a week later.  I wasn’t expecting that at all, I thought we’d talk about it more/go ring searching a few more times.

Here it is! (Not the best picture, but oh well)

@FutureWife517:  I kinda knew since we had discussed marriage and chosen a wedding date after looking at rings and finding the one I loved, but he kept me guessing because he actually bought it that very day but told me to keep looking. He played it like he hadn’t bought anything and that we should keep shopping around. Almost a month later, after looking in stores and online and not finding anything I liked better, I guess he knew he had made the right purchase. He bought the ring on 12-13-12, proposed on 1-12-13 and we are getting married on 11-12-13. 

Here is my beauty. She is a 0.48ct G, VS1, Triple Ex H&A center stone with a halo and micropave band with 16 peekaboo diamonds.

@FutureWife517:  Thanks!  And I agree – I was glad it worked out that way, so I had no idea it was happening.  I got to be surprised and got to lead my fiance in the right direction as far as rings go (I don’t wear any jewerly, so I had no idea what I wanted and he had no idea what to get me).

I knew because he kept talking about it and we picked out my ring and booked our venue before he proposed ( the ring took awhile to make). I didn’t know the “when” so I was surprised on Thursday!

sorry so big! We had discussed marriage pretty extensively, and I knew he was going to propose, but had NO idea when. Anyways, a few months later my fmil and I planned to throw him a suprise party for graduating from his flight school. Turns out he knew about it the whole time and it was really a party for me! He made a movie about our relationship with our baby pictures then random videos of us. He made this lovely speech in front of both our families & I said yes! Whoop!

I cried like a freaking baby! Much harder than I thought I would lol.

I didn’t have ANY idea! I thought I was going to have to wait at LEAST 6 or 8 months more than I did!

I kind of knew he was going to propose because we had been talking about it for a few months, I just didn’t know when.
