Alright guys I am in need of some thoughs
 
Here is the deal...I am going to propse to my girl whenever I get the ring in stock at the jewlers.

I need some opinions on how to do it. She doesn't want anything traditional, so gimme some options people because I have none. The one I had would have been good but the ring wasn't in on time so I had to scrap it.

I took her to Connecticut for Spring Break to visit with my family and show her where I grew up. Well, if I had the ring I had a plan to get my niece and nephew to distract here playing around and the have my nephew run up to her and tap her on the leg getting her to turn around and give her something (with the ring inside) and then I would tap her on the other side to get her to turn towards me so i could ask her.

That would have been bad ass but the damn jewler is taking forever, It is like they have to mine the freaking gold in Zambia or some sh** and bring it over here on a damn donkey. :mad:

So any options/opinions would be great.

for a complete suprise:

you could do like this, steam open a box of cracker jacks, and put the wring at the top with a note. then glue it back together. gave it to her when they were watching a movie, and say can you open this i'm gonna go get a few drinks. then watch from the kitchen as she opens the package, and walk in just as she realizes.

downside ... sticky engagement wring.

For a more romantic thing:

you could go online and find a nice hotel in a city or small town (whichever you prefer) close to you(hour or two). take a trip up there a few days before and make arangements to have the room filed with flowers/chocolate/wine/candels ect.

tell her you want to go on a little road trip on a saterday morning and comletely suprise her with the room, dinner ect. and if at any point when your driving she asks where your going, tell her your parents house, and just make fun of her till she stops asking.

I could come up with somemore if you want ... I'm a romantic cause i love bitchs :D

This is an acronym I learned in the Corps: KISS-
Keep It Simple Stupid. It's all according to Murphy's Law, which is, whatever you think will go according to plan, won't.

Trust me, the women will be talking about the actual wedding, not how you proposed. The only real criteria is romantic, bent on one knee, and eye contact. I also recommend some wine in the mix because it'll loosen the two of you up a bit, making it less awkward. Another must is a familiar place the two of you feel more comfortable in. If you decide to take her somewhere you never been to before, you'd better go scout it out for a few days. You never know. It's better than asking for directions or standing on the sidewalk trying to find something to do. When I got engaged, I took my wife to a little scenic town in CA that was tucked away from everything. Jullian, CA. It's surrounded by mountains, and is not in the least bit "modern". Bet your A$$ I scoped it out twice before I brought her!! (btw, 2 hour drive through the mountains) When I brought her I was able to give her an unbelievable time because I knew what was going on, where to go, ect. We stayed in a bed and breakfast that was pretty expensive, but elegant and most importantly private.

Jenn wanted it traditional so I just took her to a very nice park that we were at on our first 4th of july(years ago)....Anyway there was a little wooden bridge that I stopped her in the middle of,told her I loved her,and then popped the question..She LOVED it.

I'm sure there is some activity that the two of you like to do together. Just do that, whatever it is. Not only will she remember but it will be your thing forever. Not that that may be a good thing. :p

I am leaning towards something like the first one that hardgain mentioned. Problem is that she doesnt like crackerjacks. Maybe I can figure something out there.

Dave's bridge was good, problem is there is nothing scenic around me, I am at the college end of Orlando. Disney is a possibility but like I said, she doesn't want traditional.

0311, I have to disagree, she is going to have to tell people how it happened and it if isn't interesting enough she could get pretty angry.

you could always attach the wring to your pants zipper and when .... nevermind this is too serious to joke about.

what types of food does she like, or clothing, you can put it in with something like that.

this isnt the same, but i gave a gf a huge teddy bear once, and put the gold chain and charm around its neck. it took her a good 5 minutes to realize it was there. I like the suddle (sp?) stuff.

in another direction, and this is a little off topic but have you asked her parents permission? I dont know your situation, but if she is close with them, alot of parents and women love that crap ... and they may have some insight also. perhaps they could play a part in it.

I hope she isn't that superficial!! It really shouldn't get her mad. Wow! In that case, how's about you take her to a baseball game and have the announcer ask the question. Or better yet, attach the message to the back of a airplane...
WILL YOU MARRY ME??
Have you checked out having an airplane trace smoke through the air?

Actually Hard that is how I gave her the christmas present I got her, a necklace and matching earing, all put on the bear.

It isn't that she is superficial, she just likes originality (which I am not).

Actually I am going to be doing this next weekend when her parents are in town. Good thng too because her dad is a big redneck with a whole lot of guns, so it is better that he ask any questions here rather then within reach of his guns. I really hope he doesn't ask anything that I should not be a truthfull as possiblew about...I am a horrible lair.
