Wow! Mom’s a little excited much? Maybe it’s just a decoy. Have you talked to your SO yet?

I’d be livid. It’s not her place to ruin his surprise. I’d call her and let her know that….i mean, SERIOUSLY?! Who does that?!

Awwww…. it sucks that the surprise was ruined but your mom is probably super-excited and since I generally HATE surprises, I can see my mom thinking she was being helpful by telling me.  Super exciting though!!

maybe it’s a trick and it’s coming this weekend instead? here’s hoping! otherwise, don’t be too bummed. i found out a lot of stuff i wasn’t supposed to know beforehand and it didn’t take away from the moment.

AWWW…bummer!  But hey, at least he’s proposing right?!

I know that totally ruined the surprise though 🙁 I mean, I know she must be excited, but she should have thought before she told you!

Awe – that sucks!!!!!!

If you tell him he might change the plans a bit and even if you don’t it will still be perfect!

Im so sorry your surprise was ruined 🙁  I also wouldnt let him know you know.

I made a point to tell my dad that when my Darling Husband asked him permission NOT to tell my mom, not because she would tell me but because I would know just be talking to her something was up.

It sucks that he already bought his ticket, I probably wouldn’t tell him you know unless it will really be hard not to since he would most like want to change his plans then and changing a plane ticket can be very expensive…

I agree, your mom should not have done that, very unfair of her and definitely ruined the surprise element of the proposal…But I was say, the proposal will be AMAZING even if it’s not a surprise, and it’s so sweet that he went to all this effort to make your proposal so special…That’s definitely a cheering-up thought, as is the thought that you will be engaged in (fingers crossed) one month!

I’m so sorry she ruined the surprise!!! 🙁 It might not be a bad idea to talk to him about it, though. As much as it might upset him, I’m sure that in the long run he’d rather give you a proposal that surprises you and makes you happy than one that might make you upset because it reminds you that the surprise was blown.

OR maybe he’s throwing HER the red herring, knowing she’d tell you?

Either way, even if you know where and on what day, you still don’t know HOW he’s going to do it, so at least there will be something of a surprise, and it will still be exciting to make it official!

Hah! I would actually WANT my mom to ruin it for me. I like to know and she knows I like to know Laughing She was good though – she knew a few days before I did and she later told me it as my DAD who had trouble holding on to the secret!

Oh my!  I’m so sorry you had to go through that!  I’m sure that your heart sank…


But look on the bright side…you’re getting engaged!
