Wrapped in toilet paper, stuffed into one of those mini ziplock bags, and placed in the map pocket on the back of the driver’s seat.

For some reason, I think that is hilarious and he gets annoyed that I include that much detail in the story.  That ring was one my family had. Not an heirloom, but we had it. So he fished it out of my jewelry tangle — and the toilet paper and the ziplock (for spare buttons) were the closest things on hand for him to put it in. It sat in the car like that for for months.  The fact that I was tearing the house apart looking for it was part of how we had the the conversation about proposing. (We traded that ring in for a credit towards my real ring.)

Well, right now it’s hiding in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

I’m in Oklahoma City, which is about two hours away, so I’m pretty sure he knows it’s safe there πŸ˜€

The trunk of his car, and then at the bottom of his backpack… He was super sneaky πŸ˜‰

He proposed the day he picked up the ring, but still had to hide it until the actual proposal.

When he picked me up in his car, it was in a little storage space in the dashboard. If I’d been on that side of the car I probably would have seen the box, but since he put my stuff in the trunk and I got into the passenger side, it was safe.

When we got out of the car, he put the ring box under his sweater in his ARMPIT! He told me it would’ve bulged in a jean pocket, and he wasn’t wearing a jacket, so it was the only place to put it.

I never saw him take it out of either hiding place, it was just magically in his hands when he got down on one knee. Sneaky, sneaky!

These are such great stories!

Fiance hid it in his flag display case at home, inside the American flag for a few weeks before he proposed (Army guy).  He always told me that’s where he was going to hide it, but I thought he was joking around.  I contemplated looking in it a few times, but then got scared that it really was in there and I didn’t want to ruin the surprise!

I almost found it while we were on vacation (the day before he proposed).  He lost his sunglasses and I was fishing around in his carry-on bag trying to find them.  He got realllly mad at me for looking in there.. now I know why! πŸ™‚

In his pocket πŸ™‚ One morning, he just felt he couldn’t possibly wait another minute to propose, so he went out at 9 a.m. and bought the ring. Four hours later, he proposed! πŸ™‚

He hid it in a safe deposit box πŸ™‚ Had it for 4 months before he proposed! We were planning a trip to CA but we never went and he said that the week prior to that he took it out to propose on the trip. He said then that he hid it in his back pack his underware drawer and sock drawer and sometimes take it to work when he knew was going to do some major cleaning lol! He would mix it up LOL! Finally he ended up taking it back to the safe deposit box until our next trip to CA πŸ™‚

My fiance has this little box that is almost like a jewelry box for an engraved pocket watch. He also puts cash in there that we both use. I have no idea why he would have hidden it in there. I went in several times to get cash out. Luckily, I never saw the ring inside. lol

In his hiking pack which he took on the trip with us when he propossed. He also hid in a MEC bag at the very begining which was very suspicious since he said he didnt go to the city but I knew he had because of his shopping bag he tried to hide from me.
