I never get home before my SO and he always checks the mail when he gets home. But today I got off work early to go see my dad in the hospital and therefore ended up being the first one home and thought I’d check the mail for him. Grabbed the mail and there’s a ring box in it. I threw the mail back in the box, closed it back up and went on my way. I will NOT snoop and ruin his surprise. But I have to admit I’m excited to know he has it. More excited than I thought I would be even. Now just got to play it cool, right? Lol, yeah I suck at that!!! Wish me luck!

This is totally irrelevent but…
Like a shipping box or legit a ring box?! Why would it just be all loosey goosey in there if its just a legit ring box? I must know!

Shipping package with ring box in it – sorry – it sounded clear in my head lol.

slomotion : I’ve bough several rings via the web through this process and the only shipper thoughtful enough to use a box instead of dropping the ring box in a soft envelope was the one who sent me my engagement ring. Holy cow! As if it’s not scary enough thinking about your ring going through the mail!

darkwater67 : Sooo exciting! I didn’t know I was getting engaged at all which is a good thing cause I would have gone snooping. Can’t even pretend I’d be able to help it. >_<

One of the things that I find most endearing about my SO is that when he gets excited about something all the planning and patience goes out the window. I was cleaning when SO came in in from getting the mail; he was running around yelling he needed a knife or scissors (LOL). He was desperate to get in that package. I turned around and he was standing right there with a shit eating grin on his face. He told me he had something for me and pulled out an amazing ring. Our conversation when about like this:
Him “do you know what this is?”
Me “looks like a ring to me”
Him “yeah, but what KIND of ring?”
Me “a sparkly ring?”
Him (big sigh) “What KIND of sparkly ring?”
Me “a REALLY sparkly ring”
Him “SERIOUSLY DARKWATER?!?! Are you kidding me?”
We were both laughing after that and he looked me dead in the eyes and asked if I would marry him? Right at this moment my young teen daughter walked in and started screaming “OH MY GOD” Over and over. I (of course) said yes, and hugged him again. We were plowed into by said teenager and it was a 3 way hug of happy tears and laughter.
I would have been with him forever without ever getting a ring. He is my person and the only man I could have ever been happy growing old with. I have enjoyed 6 years of being with him and I can’t wait to start the next chapter of our lives together.

WOW! Was not expecting the picture to be so HUGE. The glare makes the stone look yellow 🙁 But it is really a beautiful grey.

So exciting and such a sweet proposal story. I’m sure he had something else planned, but it sounds like it couldn’t have been more perfect. 🙂
My Fiance actually scheduled to pick up my ring from FedEx because he didn’t want me to know it had arrived. (I didn’t know he had ordered it yet, but I knew it was coming soon.)

Congratulations!! My fiance also proposed the day he got the ring in his hand. He just couldn’t wait. It’s adorable how excited they get!
