I’m sure the news is still pretty fresh in your brain. With some time and some of the natural business life throws at you I’m sure you’ll find yourself forgetting more and more often. And I’m sure if he’s been with you ring shopping he has an idea of what you would love. Kudos to him for being on the ball. πŸ™‚ I know it’s tought forgetting about something once you hear it. It’s kinda like when someone says, “Don’t think about how you’re breathing,” then that’s all you can think about. πŸ™‚

I’m sure you’ll do fine. Hopefully he does it sooner rather than later. πŸ™‚

@nashanta:I was here once upon a time all excited knowing he actually has the ring and here i am 7mnths later and i’m still waiting… Frown I even got a chance to see the diamond to be set in the ring… I really don’t see the point having it there collecting dust sigh… 

I really hope you don’t have to go through what I am and he does it sooner than later…

@nashanta: My fiance had my ring for four months before proposing and said he was just trying to find the perfect time to propose. He actually managed to surprise me in the end and it was all worth it.

And it will be for you too.

At least you a. know it’s coming and b. know that he knows what sort of ring you want.

Oh my gosh… I remember EXACTLY what this was like. My fiance and I have been together since high school, so the topic of marriage had come up quite a few times. When we realized we were ready, I started looking at rings and giving him a few ideas of what I liked. Then I find out he went shopping with my sister and they bought one together. I also found out that same day he had talked to my dad about it. So, in my mind I thought… oh it’s coming soon!!! 

I’m not an easy one to surprise… it’s not always that I go SEARCHING for answers, but I’m very attentive and pick up on details people drop on mistake. With that being said, he knew he couldn’t plan an all out proposal because I would instantly know.

That all happened in February… we got engaged in June. At first I thought “Ohhh he’s gonna propose on Valentines Day… that’s so typical… he’s going to KNOW that i know…” then that came and passed… then I thought “Ok… he’s gonna propose on my birthday… still typical, but ok” then that came and passed… after my bday, i kind of forgot about it and let it go. Dang if he didn’t pull it off on a typical Sunday afternoon at my dad’s during a game of poker. I wouldn’t change it for the world πŸ™‚

@nashanta:  Yes, it was definitely worth it πŸ™‚  In my case, he wanted to hike me up to some waterfalls in the mountains that were snowed in until May.  It was beautiful, and I’m glad he waited for it.  As an added bonus, he had fully paid it off by that time too πŸ™‚

@claireos:

@nashanta:  I totally feel your pain.   I know there is a ring in the house, and I think I’ve seen the box.  (but I chickened out before I opened it.)   I don’t think my acting skills are sufficient enough to pull off that kind of emotion  Surprised.  Anyways, the suspense is killing me too.   I haven’t been able to forget about it.   I’m beginning to kick myself because long ago, I told Mr Iris, who is famously undemonstrative in his emotions, that I expect real emotion for a few key events in life.   Engagement was the first, followed by wedding day, and arrival of any flower buds.   Now I’m getting impatient and I think he’s waiting for me to not expect it, so I’ll be surprised.   (Told you, my acting skills are not up to par….)   ***big sigh***  I’ll kepp you posted.   I hope you get your heartfelt proposal soon.

P.S.  On a brighter note, I noticed him looking at some of my rings and trying to see which of his fingers they fit on.   Is it wrong to tell him 5 1/2?   lol

On a completely unrelated note, you look absolutely stunning in your green dress.   I don’t think your SO will wait for too long.  Wink

Oh, I feel all of you girls, I swear I was about to post a thread with the same title. Seems we’re all stuck in the same boat. Mrs Iris — I’m from Ottawa! πŸ™‚ Nice to meet you, fellow Canuck!

Mr and I went shopping for the ring together, as he wanted to be sure about my taste, how it would actually look on my hand, but also because I’m interested in a channel set band, and apparently those shouldn’t be sized down so drastically to my teeny finger (size 4), but rather made to fit. The center stone will be princess, but he’s going to surprise me on size etc, and of course wants to surprise me with the proposal.

I know he has the paperwork on the specific ring he chose somewhere in the house, but he asked me not to look at it, because it would break his heart! Aw. Of course I haven’t, but its sooo hard! I know the jeweller got the diamond in yesterday, so Mr Pants is going to look at it today, and assuming all goes well, it will be mounted and he should have the ring in his possession very shortly. Eeek! OMG. Its KILLING me.

I know he won’t keep the ring in our house (too tempting for Mrs Pants), which is definitely a good idea, but I am SO impatient to wear that ring and be able to share the wonderful news! We have been secretly looking into venues and options for spring/summer 2012, but we’re waiting to make the formal announcement when I actually have a ring.

At least I know his head is in the same place as mine for a wedding date, so I’m hopeful that I won’t have to wait too long for that beauty! He can’t usually wait to give me a Christmas gift, (LOL) so I’m hopeful the same will be true about my ring!

All the best in waiting OP, pre-congrats, and hope you get the proposal you are hoping for πŸ™‚
