My boyfriend picked up the ring on Tuesday (Which I knew) and I know what it is going to look like since I designed it but have never seen it in real life.  So I go to hang my towel on the closet door this morning after my shower and right there in plain sight is the jewelers bag on the top shelf of the closet.  How do I stop myself from snooping? I can’t stop thinking about it! Deep down I know I don’t want to see it till he proposes as it really is the only “surprise” part of it since I was there when we ordered it, but the control freak in me is wanting to break free and go look to make sure it’s as goregous as I want it to be 🙂 Part of me wants to tell him to hide it when I am not there and do a better job this time!

@mrs ranunculus: Now that’s funny!!!! LOL

For myself I’ve never really gone snooping honestly. I don’t want to find the ring because I’d then be a crazy woman. I think I’ve been involved enough. With the ring shopping, potential date (that isn’t going to happen now), and all the talks/breakdowns. I’d rather not know if he has the ring. Leave a little bit of suprise for me.

We bought the ring together, so I knew it was coming, but he made me wait a month for it. Fiance took a nap one day and I *just* so happened to run across it underneath his sink tucked into a corner. Ooops, my bad ;).

@mrs ranunculus: That is too funny !

I’m engaged & didn’t snoop beforehand, but once I got my ring I was SO curious for whatever reason about how much he spent lol, because I knew he’d just gotten a bonus at work & just couldn’t help myself. Well, thank god I never snooped before I got the ring because I definitely would have found it- he simply stuffed the bag w/ receipt under our dresser. The one I vacuum/clean under at least once a week 🙂

I don’t know if you’d classify this as ‘snooping’, but usually when I’m cleaning and tidying up I’m pretty thorough. J likes to keep reciepts for EVERYTHING. So when I clean and come across one of them I look at it and ask if he needs to keep it (which is how I found out how much he has left to pay off on his Credit Line).

@PrettySedity: Ha–well that’s a good point too. I do think knowing he had gone to a jeweler on his own, or that he actually HAD the ring would make me evern CRAZIER than I already am! Although…again it would be nice to know he was taking steps. I guess it’s a Catch 22. 🙂

DON’T SNOOP!! I wasn’t even expecting a proposal and I went through his texts to find out something his sister said about me…instead I found “Mom, when can we go pick up the ring this weekend?”

BAHHH!! I was so mad at myself for ruining an amazing surprise over something so petty.

@mrs ranunculus: this is hilarious!!!

We both have access to each other’s bank accounts and e-mails….that was really, really hard! 

Luckily, he paid in cash so I couldn’t see anything on email or on his checking. 🙂 He knew I’d snoop!

Nope, I never snoop, but then again I pretty much know everything that goes in my house or where things are. 

My Fiance says that I’m oblivious and actually says he can buy something right under my nose wihtout my realizing.   Ok, so it happened once, he bought a camrea for my Bday and how was I supposed to know what he was up to, he said he was looking at something for a friend at work!

I didn’t snoop around, but I did constantly annoy him with “where’s my ring” so finally he gave up and told me he bought it and showed me the receipt – which I did not want to see. I kind of regret bugging him about it, but at least I now know he is thinking about it doing it soon :-)?? I still haven’t received the ring 🙁

It’s hard to say if I’m happy about this or not Embarassed

He left the ring box out in the open, and he showed it to his friend and his friend’s wife. She recommended I look. I totally looked. And I seriously regretted it.

Sort of.
