So I posted last night about how my SO’s mom gave me some hints about my birthday gift from SO that is leading me to believe he MAY propose.
Well, tonight I went over to MY mother’s house and had a long talk with her about it all. After talking with her…It dawned on me…”Wait a minute….He’s not propsing. I he couldn’t be. He promised me that before he proposed, he would talk to you and ask your permission to marry me. And I know you wouldn’t be able to keep it a secret if he did that!” (my dad passed away when I was 11). Well, all of a sudden, she broke out in this HUGE grin and started looking around. I literaly grabbed her by the collar of her shirt and was like “MOTHER!!!! TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOWWWWW!!!!!”
But she INSISTS that he has not done that….She was only laughing because she didnt think I would want something so old fashioned like that to be done. So now I’m even MORE confused!
But even if he doesn’t propose, I won’t be dissapointed. Seems like whatever he has in store for me is going to be awesome no matter what!

You never know though! My mom has the WORST time keeping a secret. She even tried to ask me “What is a Garmin?” to ‘throw me off’ right after she bought one for me for Christmas–i know she knew what it was!!
Anyway, I overheard my SO asking my mom (she has the family diamond, so he had to ask both parents). And then a week later my mom’s best friend said “I though for sure SO came home with you last weekend to ask for the diamond! But your mom said he didn’t…weird.”
So for this, my mom was able to keep it a secret from me AND from her best friend. And I thought for sure she wouldn’t be able to. Something like this that would be such a surprise, I’m sure your mother would be able to hide it from you.
Either way, enjoy the weekend and keep us updated!

@MrsT2b: that was hilarious! Good thing I didn’t have my coffee or I would have spat it out too….

Yeah I agree its possible she’s just being sneaky too. But just incase I would focus on enjoying the birthday whatever the surprise may be.

Awww, don’t put your Mom in that position! DH asked both of my parents together and they just completely avoided all contact with me from that moment until the proposal. I was like “Why won’t my Mom call me back??”
