Ive been stalking these boards for quite some time now, but this is my first ever post. My live in boyfriend of 3 years has been dropping hints about proposing like crazy for the past 6 months. He spilled the beans on the weekend and told me he’s bought the ring! Hes even told me ecactly where in our house it is “hidden.” why would he do this? Its driving me nuts! I want to have the self control to not take a peek and be patient, but its so hard!! He has planned a romantic getaway for us in 2 weeks and I am almost positive it will happen then!! I’m going crazy knowing all this!

How exciting! I knew before my Fiance proposed that he was going to do it (knew he had a ring and walked in on him asking my dad for permission, haha). So exciting for you though! Get a nice manicure and enjoy the anticipation 🙂

oh man, good luck with the self control thing! haha. When my husband bought the ring, we lived together. He hid it somewhere in the house and gave me no clues. Then he left for 2 months for a deployment. I tore that house UP looking for that ring! and never found it… haha. But i tried…

Yay!!! That is so exciting! And I have no self-control. My husband had me in the car with him when he picked up my ring. (I always told him to have the ring sized before he proposed, so I didn’t have to take it off) So out he comes with a lovely little ring box. And what does he do? Sticks it in the glove box in front of me and grins all the way home, while I impatiently hammer him with questions, lol.
Definitely get a nice manicure before your romantic getaway! So exciting!

when my Mr. proposed to me, I of course had very crappy nails and no clue he was going to propose. I was oblivious to the fact he had cooked a scheme to do it at Disney. yeah, grungy nails, really short, no polish. gorgeous ring though. I felt horrible walking through Disney with my rough garden hands (we had just thrown sod on a clients yard) that had a bright, shiny new ring on it. My Mr. just kissed my hands and said it shows I’m good with my hands 🙂

Congrats, that’s super exciting!!! Have control 🙂 It’ll be worth it in 2 weeks, and he deserves the right to see your face the first time you see the ring.

Congratulations! That is so exciting! I had no idea my Fiance was going to propose when he did but luckily my nails still looked good because we were on vacation, lol. Try not to peek, it will be so special when you see the ring for the first time. Not just for you but for him too.

Thanks so much for your responses! (and advice for getting my nails done!) the comments on him deserving to see my face the first time I see the ring is what has kept me from peeking! Hopefully I don’t have to wait too much longer. 🙂
