Default Bought the ring... now to pop the question

I went on Wednesday to go look, I was there for about 15 minutes, pretty quick and painless. I figured after 8-1/2 years its about time, ya know?

We went through some pretty rough shit this past year but we came out of it all still together and closer than we ever were before. I gotta come up with an idea or something unique to actually pop the question. I have a spot picked out. Its called the 501 Lookout. Its on SR-501 here in PA. I have a pic of it on my phone, I'll post it tomorrow. Phone gets crappy service here at the house.

Anyways, here's the ring. She made me promise that I didnt spent over $1K but it ended up being around $1,300. No big deal though.

Anybody got some good, unique ideas for the whole "popping the question" thing?

Thats awesome Mr. Ferguson! Congrats! As far as popping the question, I cant help you much with that, I did it totally different than the norm.

There you go, throw her off so it will be a surprise when you ask her. I did that with my wife, I had decided to ask her months before I did and I had the ring and everything and the whole time I dropped little hints like I wasnt interested in getting married and all that jazz so it totally blew her mind when I gave her the ring, she had no clue I had it.

I never officially proposed since I was so nervous I was speechless. I, too, completely shocked my wife. We started dating on New Year's Eve, and after about 8 yrs, I figured I was ready. We hadn't talked about it -- except her dropping hints, etc, but we never did any shopping. I bought costume jewelry for $15, and we went out to dinner (on New Year's Eve). I handed her a jewelry type box, and when she opened it, her jaw went to the floor. She said, "Is this what I think it is"? I said, "Yeah". So, it all worked out. Congrats. Nice ring.

I decided the day before that I was going to pop the question, I got online went to Shaneco.com and found the diamond I wanted and got a presentation setting and had it overnighted. We went on a picnic dinner date we were just talking and what not she went to the car for something and when she came back I popped the question I did the whole one knee and everything!
