I have been a longtime lurker on the DIS boards for a while now but finally decided to become a member and start a PJ because WE'RE GETTING MARRIED AT DISNEY WORLD! But you already knew that... Onto the important stuff!!


I am a social studies teacher! I love to think about Disney, go to Disney, talk about Disney, etc. When I'm not busy with that or school, I like to read, talk about Harry Potter () watch movies, pretend that I am a good scrapbooker, and sing in my car shamelessly, dancing included.

My favorite Princess is Rapunzel and my two other favorite Disney characters are: Daisy Duck and Remy!


Max graduated with his BA in Political Science in the Summer of 2010. He now works as a loan modifier for a financial company! He loves playing videogames, watching movies, Star Wars, animation, Disney World, and just having fun. Seriously, this guy takes fun pretty seriously.

His favorite characters.. well, are undecided. He simply can't pick! His favorite character (that he can list!) is Donald Duck!

About Us:

We owe everything to our Mommas. My mom and Max's mom worked at the same school for 2 years, and that is how we met! Typically, my mom's teaching department would hold parties where teachers would bring their families and everyone would chat, have fun, etc.

Max and I met at one of these parties when I was 11. We never spoke to each other that night (he was "too cool", and so was I! ) but we later both agreed that we thought the other was cute.

I became good friends with Max's sister and started seeing more of Max. We became friends, starting talking, etc. You know what happens next...

Well, on December 22, 2005, Max sent me a MySpace message telling me he loved me and wanted me to be his girlfriend. After all these years, I felt the same way. I responded and we've been together ever since!! We will be getting married on our 7 year anniversary!

We love just being together, having fun, being silly. We really are best friends and I couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else.

We are lucky enough to get to Disney World pretty often. We live about 2 and a half hours away and are DVC members. Expect lots of mini-TRs from me between now and the wedding!

The Proposal:
A little backstory is in order before I continue with the proposal story.. Max and I have always known that we would get married one day. On October 14th of 2006, Max asked me if I'd marry him one day. I said yes.

Fast forward to October 14, 2010...
Our proposal was perfect and exactly what I wanted. Quiet, and just the two of us. Max picked me up after work to go spend the evening with him and told me there was "something" he needed to put away when we got home. I had no clue what was going on but thought it was weird he announced this. Whatever.

We get home, he goes to put this "something" away.. in the dining room. I follow him because what is he doing?! (Did I mention that sometimes I think I'm Nancy Drew?).. as soon as I see the dining room, I start crying.

On the wall, he printed out a bunch of pictures of us from last 5 years and has the words "Will You Marry Me" printed on sheets on paper.

... Max got down on one knee (and said something sweet that I don't really remember) and asked if I would marry him? I said yes!! We cried, called everyone that we needed to call, changed our Facebooks ().. then ordered pizza and watched a movie!!

It was perfect! My ring is beautiful.. here it is:

I am so happy that Max and I are one step closer to being Mr. and Mrs.!

Well, that's about all I can write today as I need to leave for work soon (I work Part-Time at Hallmark), but I will probably be posting pretty regularly. I have lots of wedding things to show already, and quite a few Disney trips coming up!

Up Next: Our Wedding Plans.. and "You already have a wedding planned in South Florida?!"
AP. DVC. FL Res.
Our Swan and Dolphin Wedding!
