It's gray and raining outside and I'm sitting at my computer, wearing the Mickey ears from the photo. It helps me bring a little bit of the Disney Magic into my day when I need it.

Not too much is going on wedding-wise. I think I may try calling DFTW again today. I'm trying to find where I read that Wishes weddings can start talking to them at 24 months now. Was it the boards or Passporter's Guide? Guess I've got some research cut out for me.

Thought I'd share a photo from trick-or-treating. I decided to throw together a costume at the last minute. I was a tacky tourist. Hee hee. Couldn't find my pin lanyard or the fanny pack or the additional buttons that I know are in the house somewhere.



And no, I'm not usually quite so pink. I was trying to look sunburned. And no, I don't usually wear blue eyeshadow, badly applied.

Knowing what I want is a little bit of a problem because the answer is "everything"! I don't think we'll go so far as the glass coach but Mickey and Minnie are on the "must have" list.

Wayne and I had a "wedding meeting" last night. Since it's past the 24-month mark we needed to make some decisions.

It's definitely Wishes.
It's definitely Wedding Pavilion at noon.
Our first choice of reception sites is LSS, and second choice is the Wonders Lounge. We're also going to look at the ballroom spaces in the Contemporary.

I just got off the phone with Debbie at DFTW. She took all of our information and preferences and stuff and we should be hearing from a Coordinator in a couple days!!!

I don't think I mentioned here that Wayne and I have settled on some sites. We're set on November 1, 2012. We definitely want the Wedding Pavilion.

For our reception, we've narrowed down to three sites and we probably won't make a decision until we can go see them.

First choice is the Living Seas Salon.

Second choice is a little strange and I think we may be the first to use it for a wedding: The Wonders Retreat Lounge in the old Wonders of Life Pavilion in Epcot.









Third choice is the ballroom at the Contemporary-- I think it's called the Nutcracker Ballroom #3 and it opens onto the Nutcracker Courtyard.



This is the only picture I've seen, and it's on the DFTW website but I like how bright it is, that it opens to an outside spot and that it seems pretty neutral (tan and black carpet).

The benefit to the Contemporary over the Epcot sites is that I could use an outside photographer and that it's a short trip on the monorail from the Wedding Pavilion. I want to see it in person though...

Aww you'll be getting married on my one year anniversary. If we are down there I'll have to lurk your wedding. Those reception sites look so wonderful. I especially love wonder's retreat. It looks so great!

Any excuse will do, right Laura? There's a DFTW open house in March. I may have to try to get down there for that!

If you're down there, lurk away! I am really loving the Wonders Lounge... it's such a quirky and whimsical room. I really want to see it in person and see how they'd set it up for a wedding.

I'm a stay-at-home-mom for the time being. You'd think I would be home for the call from DFTW right? I was out running errands ONE day this week and that's when they called! So I responded to the initial email they sent with all the PDF documents and said that I am sure they're swamped with the holiday this week and all but can we schedule a time for the call and I will make sure I'm home to answer the phone.

(I gave them the landline instead of my cell because my cell drops calls ALL. THE. TIME.)

So I'll be talking to Diane from DFTW on Monday morning. I am so excited I can barely contain myself.

Absolutely nothing is officially scheduled until 16 months out-- which kinda sucks-- but we are "pencilled in".

Last night, right before I went to bed, I checked Facebook and found that our wedding pictures have a featured post on The Disney Wedding Blog!!!! Squeeeeee! I wasn't sure if Carly would use us or not since our pictures weren't taken in WDW but there we are. I don't think my family and friends get my excitement over it but that's okay... I'm fine with being a dork all on my own (well, Wayne is pretty psyched too!) .

Juli and Wayne Engagement pictures feature.
