Your ring is beautiful!

I really don’t think you stole his thunder; i.e., it’s not like your milk ring “proposal” was better (more dramatic/romantic) than the one he planned for you, right? And it’s not like you forced him to propose. I think if anything, it probably made him really excited to know how excited you were to marry him! 

It’s absolutely normal to see the crazy, over the top surprise proposals and get kind of a twinge if your own wasn’t like that (mine certainly wasn’t lol!). But truthfully…a lot of guys–even really great guys!–are not like that. Either they just aren’t that creative/romantic, or they’re so nervous about asking you to be theirs forever that just the words “Will you marry me” are a huge deal. 

You have years to come for him to do amazing, take your breath away things for you–a proposal is just one aspect of your entire lives together. So try not to worry about it too much.

im sure you didnt steal anybody’s thunder. Unlike my sister who text me in the middle of dinner on the day h2b proposed ‘did he propose yet?’ lol i went mad at her when i got back home then to make matters worse she announced her pregnancy (despite knowing she was pregnant for ages) at our engagement celebration *rolls eyes* sisters eh? 

I think that your milk ring proposal may have just confirmed what he was thinking (I dont think a guy would propose unless he was pretty sure he would get a yes) Knowing that you were both on the same page so to speak probably made things ten times easier for him

Ring is beautiful and I actually think this is an incredibly cute and touching story from two very obviously in love people.

I don’t think you stole his thunder! I think the milk ring bit makes the story so cute! My Fiance and I had a similar joke going with a ring pop and he almost tried to propose with one of those as a joke. Your ring is absolutely stunning by the way!

I knew the exact day he was going to propose yet he still managed to surprise in the details. Look he could have done anything he wanted and he could have laughed in your face rather than the cute milk ring. He loves you and thus he is what you need. There is no thunder to steal, it is about both of you not just one or the other. Be happy– you are getting married!
