    Yup. At one point, I knew almost down to the minute (granted, that was 2 minutes before). I still loved it and was giggly and giddy the whole time. He knew that I knew, so I didn’t have to pretend to be surprised.

    @Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug:   I know what weekend but it’s 4 days and he could suprise me and do it earlier. I know he’s getting the ring in 2 days ( on monday!!!!!!!!!)  and that weekend we are going camping with both of our families. So I’m assuming it’s that weekend. EEEKKK! I can’t even wait lol

    I knew the exact day he was going to propose and yes, it was super exciting… He knew that I knew so I didn’t have to act surprised. Honestly though, I was just so happy/giddy it was as if he had surprised me! 🙂 Congrats in advance!

    I figured it would happen while we were on our road trip vacation. There was one stop that I thought was a bit more likely than any other location. When we got there, like @mepayne, I kind of knew down to the minute- I could see the ring box protruding from his pocket. Was it still special? YES! Did I still cry? You bet. Was it still perfect? Absolutely. Is it still “surprising” because it’s a unique and lovely moment? Yup! You don’t know what your SO will say, and you don’t know how he will lead into it. Even though I knew it was coming, my favorite part of the story is how my Darling Husband segued into the proposal and the whole awkward/lovey excitement that we both felt.

    FWIW, I’ve played it off all along that it was a complete surprise though- he has no idea I had a hunch. I lie through my teeth when people ask if I knew because it’s more important to me that he feels like all his planning was a success 🙂

    I knew it was one of two days. I didn’t know when during the day until minutes/seconds before. 🙂
