I knew pretty much everything… except when he went to pick it up, ha!  We went to the store three times… the first time was to pick out what I liked.  I had 2 in mind, but I couldn’t stop thinking about one of them, so we went back again a few weeks later and I made my decision which one I wanted.  He didn’t give any hints to which one he was going to get, but I knew he would get the one I couldn’t stop talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰  The third time was after he had just gotten a big promotion and I went w/ him to the store, but I wasn’t allowed in the room w/ the consultant so DUH I knew they were discussing finances.   He wouldn’t tell me what they talked about etc but he did tell him he told the lady when he would need it by.  We had talked about how I wanted him to propose w/ some of my family around, b/c I don’t see them that often, and we were going away in about a month so I figured it was coming then.  He picked up the ring a few days before we went on our weekend trip and I didn’t know he got it, but assumed.  He proposed the next day when we were at my family’s cabin… ๐Ÿ™‚  It was so nice to share it with my family even though I knew it was coming.

I had no clue at all. My Fiance and I had been together 6 years but we always talked about getting engaged once I was finished my internship. So we never went ring shopping and every time I brought up weddings he would shrug it off and say thats a long ways away. So when he proposed I was utterly shocked as it came a year earlier than we had always talked about. IT was a great surprise.

Yup. I was programming an address in the GPS and saw the adress of the jewler. I tried to put it out of my mind, but I knew!

Congrats! 

I had no idea at all that my Fiance bought a ring and had no idea that the proposal was coming.  We pretty much knew we would get married.  We openly talked about marriage and being engaged, but never really set a time line.  I was actually nervous that I’d have to be the one to propose one day because I didn’t think he’d have the nerve to do it.  It took him a very long time to ask me to be his girlfriend (poor thing, he gets so nervous!) so I figured it would be nearly impossible for him to ask me to marry him.  I had absolutely no idea that he bought a ring.  He went with his mom to pick it out and even asked my parents for their blessing.  I was clueless the whole time!

The artist who made my ring called me to congratulate me on getting engaged….an entire month before my fiance proposed. He didn’t know that I wasn’t asked yet so needless to say I knew a proposal was coming! Oops!

I didn’t think we’d get engaged as quickly as we did and I certainly didn’t expect a ring.  I was 19 and pregnant and he was just getting his business really underway.  I had no idea that his mother offered him the family stone.  I was shocked when I received it and consider myself extremely loved by his parents since they gave the family stone to us.

I actually went and picked it out with him. He was a little disappointed that I knew what it looked like though. We went to look in late August (I think) and the salesman mentioned something about the clearance price ending on it at the end of that week. Soo that made it kind of obvious..but I pretended like I wasn’t listening. He had it for a whole 7 months before he proposed!

I had no idea… thank god!!  Because he bought the ring in August and didn’t propose until NYE!  He’s a good secret keeper I guess, although he said it was hard for him to not tell me because I’m his best friend.  ๐Ÿ™‚  He can be quite sweet sometimes.

I had no idea.  His family and him discussed it for over a month.  Everyone knew except for me.

  I did know when he got my ring. We went ring shopping a year before he actually bought the ring. I found two styles that I absolutely fell in love with. He told me that he wouldn’t choose either of those, because he wanted to choose my ring. Right after Thanksgiving, my mom spilled the beans that he had gotten the diamond from her. We came back home in July and we were going to go to an outdoor play that night. He said he had to drop me off at home because he had some special business to take care of with his dad. That was a major hint!

  He then proposed in August. He surprised me by coming into town when I wasn’t expecting him. He proposed with one of the rings that I fell in love with :-).

Yep I knew, just didn’t know for sure if it was going to happen when thought was. We had went to go get my earrings he had gotten me couple of years before and looked at rings.  This was a week before my birthday!

That week from when we looked at ring til the day of my birthday was on pins and needles.  And yep I got the ring that I loved for my birthday.

I didn’t know he bought a ring, but we had been together for 5 years and I had a hunch. the hunch was so strong that the day before my birthday, I painted my nails just in case ๐Ÿ™‚

he did not propose, and we went out of town as planned for that weekend. I chided myself for assuming so much and told myself I should not be so disappointed. I should consider myself lucky I have such a great boyfriend and not worry about it!

the day we got back from our trip, he waited for me to put my suitcase down and then proposed! it turns out he chickened out and decided he wanted to do it in the privacy of our home. it was kind of perfect– he completely caught me off guard and so it was a surprise after all!

I knew he was looking because we had looked together. But he kept hinting that he wouldnt make a purchase until spring. Before Christmas we went to all of these jewlers together, and he was asking tons of questions but  little did i know he had already bought the ring. That really threw me off and i was so surprised when it actually happened!
