Stop staring at me Phil! A Vinylmation stalking(with a side of *sparkle*)9/19 TR END!

Hello all my wonderful readers!!! I hope you enjoyed reading our PTR and will enjoy our TR

We visited WDW from October 16th to October 23rd. We stayed at POP Century resort...its by far our favorite Value resort. This was our first time checking out MNSSHP and Tim's first time doing Food & Wine festival...plus his first time there during fall. I have two favorite times at Disney...Fall time and Christmas time..so I was very excited to return during October

Let me introduce the characters of this TR in case you haven't read my PTR (If you want to read that there is a link in my signature, check it out )

Here is a picture before vacation

My name is Shannon...27 years old...working for the state of VA. LOVE all things Disney!! After this trip HM has become my new favorite ride, I used to be terrified of it when I was younger!!

Tim is the cute guy in the picture ....26 years old...works in Child Protective Services for the state of VA. Which means he has a ton of patience. His favorite ride changes every couple minutes but one of his favorites all the time is HM which works out great

We met right here on the DISboards and this was our first trip to WDW together so we were so excited planning, doing theme nights, etc. I think we almost passed out from excitement when we actually made it to Disney property

Our trip was full of fun, but there was one moment that stuck out way above the rest, and that was the fact that Tim is no longer my DBF....but my DF!!!!

Sorry its really difficult to take a picture of the ring and it was with my phone...so not the best quality (dont know why it looks like there some random black dot but there isnt ) ....in person its beautiful and sparkly and just perfect (ok sorry I just couldn't believe what a good job Tim did picking it out and surprising me during the trip!!)

But anyway...I am getting ahead of myself, but honestly I couldn't wait until later in the TR to share the great news I will tell all about the proposal later on

We had such a hard time picking out a title for this TR...there were so many funny stories but difficult to translate into a title. The Vinylmation stalking was one that carried throughout the week and kept us laughing....also the side of sparkle is the engagement
