@bnsp09: Don’t worry! I was sort of in the same position. We had the reception place booked a couple of months before I got the ring. As for the surprise? Amazingly, I was. Long story short. He had to pay for his car inspection, and it ended up being a lot cheaper than he thought. I told him to go to the place I’ve gone to for years. Where he had been going seemed to raise the price by a lot each time. It turned out that he paid less than $100, where he thought it was going to be a few hundred dollars. I kidded him and said he could put more money down on the ring then.  Turns out he was close enough to paying it off that he did right after picking up the car.

We ended up going to the shore that same weekend, and he wanted to give me my Easter present. We ended up going to the bench where we had had one of our deep talks right before becoming a couple. Going to the bench was my idea. He had asked if I wanted to stay home or go into town. Even sitting on the bench I had no idea what was about to happen! It wasn’t until he was down on one knee that I figured everything out. So yes, it’s defintely possible to be surprised.

I wouldn’t worry about it! Its clear your sister had good intentions as you were in agony in the waiting process, and if you feel relieved now that you know a ring is on the way, then it makes you feel better about yourself.

I’m sure the proposal will still be a surprise in the where/what/when, you just have validation that you now know it will happen some time soon (lucky you!!)

honestly, you’ve been buggging your sister so much I can’t blame her for spilling the beans.  Take a deep breath and RELAX!  It will happen when it happens.  Don’t tell him you knew–and you will def be suprised if you just stop worrying about it and let it happen. 

I knew that we had the ring, and even kind of guessed that that would be the day. but it was still a surprise seeing HOW he did it.  Don’t worry about it–the less you think about it the more natural your response is going to be and you might even let yourself be surprised!
