I knew it was in his filing cabinet for a month, the surprise was worth the self control

Mine should be here in a couple weeks. I picked out the stone, size, setting and know what it will look like but we ordered it online so I’ve never seen it in person. I’m sure I will be the one home when it is delivered but I’m going to have to force myself not to open it. I don’t want to see it or put it on until he proposes. He is going to hide it and I will refrain from looking because I don’t want to see it until that special moment. It’s gonna be hard but so worth the wait.

I know what my ring is going to be which means waiting is hard core killing me. I have seen it online but when I receive the shipment i won’t be allowed to see it until he proposes which could be 4 months from now (literally). :/

You have more self control than I would be able to have. Fingers crossed that he proposes soon!

peonytuliplove:  I’m with you ! Haha. He just ordered mine !!

I HAVE to see it when it comes, to make sure everything is good with it.  I’ll be the one signing for it when it comes anyway 😉

I know exactly how you feel!! I just got engaged 2.5 weeks ago, but I knew the ring was in our house for at least 2 months before he asked. I was realllly tempted at times, but I didn’t go snooping around for it. Since you already know he has the ring and is planning on proposing, just wait!! It would suck to know that he is proposing AND know what the ring looks like before the special moment.

How cruel. I would’ve sneaked a peak. And by peak, I mean put it on my finger and take a million pictures.

Argh! Totally with you, except I have no idea where mine is. I just know that it’s been in the house for two weeks. I’ve had to resist the urge to go hunting, so hard!

Fingers crossed that your proposal happens soon!

My FH will probably boobytrap mine. He knows I have no patience.

Haha you are amazing! I wouldn’t have that self control- bf has to hide it. I actually did find it twice, but just handed him the box without looking. I was able to control myself for those few seconds each time but there’s no way I could just have it there in the open the whole time!

I snooped! Lol but my fiance showed me my ring before he purchased it because I wanted a sapphire halo and we weren’t able to see one in person yet. once I knew he bought it tho, I started “cleaning” more areas of the house for a clue. Lol it didn’t ruin anything, I think the only difference is I didn’t cry like I thought I was going too because I knew it was coming. 

If you don’t know what it looks like though! I would wait!!!
