Steph and Tom's PJ!1/3/10-WP/WHR/AAP/ITALY-We won Best Love Story! Thanks for voting.

Hello. Well since I officially have a date I am excited to start my PJ!

I am Stephanie and I am from Brooklyn, NY. I am a Litigation Patent and Pharmaceutical Paralegal in Manhattan. My fiancee is Tom. He works in Sales (shoes! how lucky am I!) We have been together for a little over 3 years.

How We Met
One night some people from work decided to go out to the bar called No Idea Bar in Manhattan. They have what is called a name night and if your name is posted on the chalk board behind the bar you drink for free all night. My friend from work name is Eleftherios-Teddy for short-and since most people do not have the name Eleftherios he was the only one in the bar drinking for free. He invited some of his friends to meet us at the bar. Tom and him have been friends since they were kids. Tom walks in and I thought he was cute but thought nothing of it. Believe it or not he was actually there to meet one of my other co-workers. Obviously that didn't work out. So we started talking at the bar and would go out to smoke a cigarette together (no smoking allowed in NY Bars) when we wanted to smoke. He and his friends were going to another bar and invited me to fo. We ended up hanging out really late and he asked me for my number. He called me a few days later and the following week we went on our first date. The rest is history.


The Proposal

We have been going to Disney the past couple of years for NYE. So we arrive in the park at 10:00 am. We immediately go to Pirates of the Carribean (DF is a HUGE fan). Of course they have a Jack Sparrow performing. Tom was the only adult who became a Pirate Apprentice!
(Have pics at home, post later). So he told me later he was thinking about doing it then but decided against it. So we walked around the park all day with the ring in his jeans pocket. He was trying to find the perfect time to propose. He was going to do the whole castle proposal but wanted something a little different. At one point, he was on his phone so I went into his pocket to grab chapstick (i always do that) and he swiped my hand away and said it was in my purse. I almost ruined the surprise as the ring box was in that pocket! Later on through the day, I noticed he looked a little weird. I asked if everything was ok, you look strange. He said he was fine. I choked it up as he was nervous about going on Roller Coasters. ( He hates them and I love them and make him go on with me!) We also went on Big Thunder Railroad in which he was freaking out more b/c he was terrified the ring would fall out! I of course did not know this. He really wanted to do it early enough so I could call my parents and friends. Of course it did not work out that way. Finally at like 2:00 am, (Yea for extra magic hours!) we see Mickey and Minnie at Sir MIckey's with a Photo Pass set up. They were there last year at that time and Tom and I kept walking through there as the night progressed. He would tell me that he wanted to stop to smoke a cigarette (since smoking section is right there). I of course had no clue he was waiting for Mickey and Minnie to come out. Anyway we get online and as we join the line we hear the Cast Member say that "Mickey and Minnie are leaving in 8 mins." I was upset and all Tom said was I hope we get to get our picture taken before they go away. We were about 6 people back and lucky for us the family in front of us decided on a group picture. : So we get up there, start taking pictures. Tom told me later he was debating whether or not to do it then since we were probably the last ones to see Mickey and Minnie since they were leaving. He decided screw it because this is what he really wanted to do and hoped the people online would understand. You can see Tom was nervous right before her proposed. I turn to hug Mickey and I hear Tom say "Let's take one more." I turn around and there he is on his knee with the ring! I was in total Shock! We of course talked about it and I even mentioned to my BFF it might happen but I really did not think he would do it in Disney. It was the sweetest proposal ever.

[/SIZE] [/IMG] After Here is us right after

My DF even got a huge bruise on his knee (post pictures soon) from going down so quickly! After about a minute of me being shocked, I finally said yes! Everyone online to see Mickey and Minnie started to clap.Minnie Mouse was actually shaking! Even better is the fact that the photopass guy got the entire proposal!!! It was so sweet and romantic.

Here is my ring


So now we are planning our 1/3/10 DFTW! So excited and will keep everyone posted with details.

Thanks! I am so excited to really get into planning. I basically know exactly what I want but I am sure it will change a little. I just reserved the date. Waiting on menu prices and then going from there! I started reading your PJ (keep having to stop b/c I am at work) lol and so excited for you! I love that he used the chocolate slipper to propose. So sweet!
