A small black JEWELRY BOX!
OMG ladies…I am totally freaking out. I am here in Canada, visiting my guy for a while. After we got unofficially engaged at Christmas, I’ve been very good and haven’t pestered him about getting the ring reset, or when he might give it to me. He’s dropped some hints that made me think he had the ring in his posession, but I promised myself I wouldn’t go looking for it – I want to be surprised.
I arrived yesterday, and today I was doing some work around the apartment while he is at work – I went to put away some of his laundry, and lo and behold, in the corner of his underwear drawer, there it was – the little black box.
I am doing my best to show restraint and NOT open the darn thing. There were so many things that didn’t go as planned when we talked over christmas, and I really let the waiting blues get the best of me, so now I am trying desparately just to be patient. I really want the first time I see the ring to be when he is actually proposing. Of course I am dying to know if my ring is actually inside it, but I can’t imagine what else it would be. (And of course, there is a not so small part of me that just wants to put it on right now and prance around the house all day!)
I don’t know how I am going to get anything done, knowing that little box is in the other room! I can hardly think about anything else! I’m just so excited – hopefully by the time I have to head home next Thursday, I’ll have that sparkly thing on my finger, and more importantly will finally be able to tell people I am engaged!
I think instead I am going to try to focus on making my nails look extra nice this week!

That box would have been open and if there was a ring in there it would have gone straight onto my finger! Good for you in showing restraint! LOL.

Distract yourself! You will be so glad you didn’t open it if he really is asking you this week. That way it will be a total surprise!
