my Future Mother-In-Law told me he had a ring when he didnt propose last xmas, so i kinda knew it was coming on new years. i didnt tell him for a few months, but he was really upset when he found out. it turned out i was still surprised because everything kept going wrong when he tried to do it on new years eve so i figured it wasnt happening that night.

My mom jsut did the same thing. My boyfriend asked my parents or discussed it on Thanksgiving and said it was coming over the holidays. We had JUST the week before had a big long talk about things and he told me we didn’t have the money to get engaged. Turns out that was his “decoy”…
My mom told me because he and I fought over the holiday (mostly due to the stress of being cooped up in a house with my house family for three straight days!) and she was worried that we would have “such a blow out before Christmas that he wouldn’t do it”
Ugh, so disappointing, right? (We are FINE btw! lol)
Then I was again completely thrown off after she told me… and last night opened the mail and found his credit card for the jewelers!!!
COULD THIS BE ANY MORE SPOILED!?
I feel your pain. 🙂

Thanks for all the support ladies! I disappeared from the boards for a bit because of school/work/life in general……………………..
So I didn’t talk to my mom for over a week after this happened – which is strange, because she is my best friend and we talk all the time. She feels horrible – she said she was just so excited she wasn’t even thinking about what she was doing.
I decided not to not tell my “soon-to-be” (ahhh!!) fiancé – because I know that he would be totally crushed – he is a hopeless romantic.
Now that I am over being upset about the surprise being ruined I am getting so so so excited!!
