My SO is super good at keeping surprises. Suuuper good. It annoys me but it’s also good. BUT he brings up our wedding, our future kids, etc. ALL THE FREAKIN’ TIME, probably once or twice every other day. While I can’t really complain about it because I love that he brings it up, it just takes me out of the ability to even try the shut it up pact.

Aww that’s a cute slip up. πŸ™‚

My Fiance (then Boyfriend or Best Friend, obviously) accidently told me which ring he’d chosen for me. Not directly, but I knew that of the 5 settings we’d picked together, only ONE came in rose gold. He’d accidently selected it in RG and added it to his shopping cart and couldn’t figure out why the price was higher! He didn’t know that I had figured it out, and I bit my tongue literally to keep from shrieking in excitement when he let that slip because it was my fav setting!!

@LiliKitty:  Yep.

My SO is a friggin’ vault when he needs to be. I also can’t attempt the shut it up pact because he’s the one to always bring it up!

Ohh that must mean its coming ! Woo! 

 About 6 months ago my SO said ” would you kill me if I proposed to u on front of our families” I said no not at all. Every holiday I was expecting it after he said that. Then about a few weeks ago he tells me ” I’m setting up a camping trip for both of our families to come with us” eeee!!!

I think that was a real slip up. I think they like seeing us get super excited because then it builds up their self-esteem. I think they also want us to know it is coming so it easier on them because both can prepare emotionally. I bet you will get engaged very soon!

My SO says things like soon your initials will be J.A.H. or last night how he wanted to have kids before 30 and I reminded him he was 27 and we aren’t getting married till next September so he will be 28 and it takes months to concieve (sometimes) and 9 months to cook. He basically just talks all the time about ‘when we get married’.

He wants it to be a surprise though so he won’t tell me anything, but prepares me that we are going to be married soon!

He came home from the football game on Sunday a little tipsy, and blurted out that he’s “having trouble finding the right oval diamond to fit with the JB Star setting” I picked out months ago. Whoops! Good thing I LOVE my setting πŸ™‚ And who would have thought it would be hard to find a great oval diamond? Apparently the jewler has been getting a bunch in and he’s shot them all down.

I’m no longer waiting, but I wanted to share my story πŸ™‚


Fiance plays guitar, and one day he innocently started playing something out in the living room.


I literally IMMEDIATELY recognized it as the song “Marry Me” by Train…and I started singing it quietly…and he tells me now that at the time he was freaking out that he’d given himself away.


And he had, but then I was trying SO HARD not to let on that I now suspected he’d propose with that song…


One day, in the car, I almost started singing the song…but I caught myself and was like “Maaaar…y had a little lamb!!!” to throw him off.


We laugh a lot about this now.

@houstonwhodat:  OK, Im all for finding clues…but just wanted to tell you not to get your hopes up πŸ™ We all have done it and it sucks!! Would hate to see you in the same position Wondering if he has given you any other hints besides the mustache thing?? Sorry, Im not trying to be a Debbie Downer πŸ™

I know for myself I try to find the hidden meaning in everything from him saying he needs to get a haircut for a date we had planned to catching him glancing in jewlery store windows. Both could mean nothing, but I tend to set myself for failure by thinking its SOMETHING!! EPIC FAIL every time

My Fiance slipped up when I asked him who would see the ring first (besides him and I) and he said his parents. They were picking us up from where we were staying on our anniversary. I pointed out he slipped up, and he tried to pretend he was confused and misunderstood the question. But I was right and he proposed on our anniversary πŸ™‚
