Pretty much what is above. I just KNOW that my SO picked my ring up when we went to his parents for dinner the other night. His mum is not great at keeping secrets lol and I saw her pointing at her finger a couple of times and making excited faces lol then she took SO into her room before we left and THEN when we got home, he had to “do something” in the garage while I went upstairs haha.
He doesn’t know I know, I think they really though they were being very sly about the whole thing god love them!
I already know which ring it is, we chose it together but i’m dying to see it in real life and try it on and make sure it fits and is everythin i’ve dreamed of.
I don’t think he will propose for a couple of weeks or months, we’re just about to move and have lots of other things going on, I have a feeling he’ll wait until we’re all settled down or on our 5 year anniversary on the 25th of next month 🙂
I don’t think i’ll go snooping, I want the proposal to still have some mystery and all of the excitement of getting the ring. It’s so hard though!!
just curious as to what you girls would do.. Or if you’ve been in a similar situation, what did you do??

@FutureMrsRosser: don’t look! I was in a similar situation and as tempted as I was to look, I stopped myself. I casually looked in a few spots, but he hid it so well! I’m glad I didn’t find it!

I think you will regret it if you look. It will be even more special if you wait. 🙂

I know I’d try to be strong, but in the end I would look for it and wear it when he wasn’t home!
It just can’t help myself 🙂

Please don’t look!! I did and i regret it sooo much!!
I suspected it was in the house and although i wasn’t actively trying to find it i just tried one place it might have been and it was. Then i went back to that place to open the box because i couldn’t resist. It was bad of me and knowing it was there but he hadn’t asked yet made me crazyy. Luckily it wasn’t for long because he proposed that night but i really wish i had been surprised.

Do you guys live together? Because if it was my house/garage too, I would totally snoop until I found the ring, do a little happy dance, and try it on before putting it back in it’s hiding spot. I know that’s the wrong answer and most bees are going to tell you to not spoil the surprise and that it’s awful to snoop, but you asked what I would do – and I know from experience that I have zero willpower in situations like this, haha!

I’d prob go look for it 🙂 couldn’t contain myself!

That’s a better hiding job than my guy first came up with. He left the box on the middle of his desk in our shared home office XD!!!
I sat on my hands in misery!
As soon as he got home I chewed him out about that temptation and had him go and actually hide it somewhere. I didn’t look for it but he did a good job the second time, I didn’t see it again until he proposed!
Was it worth it… absolutely!

O my! i have zero willpower, i would of snopped! FH and i picked out ring together so i knew what i looked like, and i even went with him to pick it from jewerler when it was ready, so i knew it was coming, just didnt know when i would get it!
So, if it was me, i would look. But, if you want to be surprised, dont snoop!

@FutureMrsRosser: Don’t look, you’ll regret it. I didn’t find the actual ring, but found a receipt. I felt quilty for looking at it, even though I accidentally found it while doing laundry. Also, it only had payment info. on it…BUT I still felt guilty. I’m in the same boat…I know it’s coming soon but don’t know when.

Are you asking what I would do, or what you should do?
Because what you should do is stay well away and put it from your mind.
And what I would do is don a set of spy-goggles and sneak in there all ninja-style to snoop.
Yeah… good luck with that.

I totally looked when I knew my Fiance had my ring in the house. He didn’t even hide it somewhere good… It was literally in the first place I looked (top drawer of dresser). I slammed the drawer shut and ran downstairs… but went back up like 2 minutes later to take a peek. I couldn’t help it!! It definitely did not ruin the moment when he proposed, but he still has no idea that I saw it before he officially gave it to me, lol.
**I picked out my own ring (Blue Nile), so I knew what it looked like as well. I just wanted to see it sparkle in real life!

Don’t look at it!! If this were me, I would also tell my SO that I knew that ring was in the garage, and he’d better move it soon because it was too tempting!

I knew when the ring arrived. I looked everywhere and couldn’t find it. I confessed to my Fiance at night that I have been snooping. He laughed really hard and told me exactly where the box was. Once I knew where it was, I didn’t go near it. It is something we laugh about now. I used to be a control freak who had to know where everything is 🙂

I would look! I actually did look when that same thing happened to me. He left it in a totally obvious place then went out of town for two weeks, and I even TOLD him that I would go snooping if he left it there, but he did anyway. So, I never told him that I looked, and he never asked.. But I don’t really regret it.
Just being honest!
