    Me and and my lovely boyfriend were engaged on Friday evening - we had been discussing it for a while (we had picked a ring during Christmas) and even booked a wedding planning trip to WDW for October :rotfl2: (what can I say Virgin had a flight sale on :rotfl: )

    I came home from work on Friday and Henry said to get in the car as we were going away - he said he had already packed my things. We set off in the car and he put on a cd he had made of all my favourite disney songs for me to listen too - the Little Mermaid, Enchanted, High School Musicial etc, by the point I was already crying :sad: with joy though!

    We drove for about an hour and then reached Whinstone Lodge - a new development of 5 luxury lodges and a bistro restaurant (here is their website they have come nice photos on there http://www.whinstoneview.com/Welcome.html).

    We pulled up to our lodge, and got out, Henry said all my clothes were inside :confused3 (I was very confused by this point)

    Here is our lodge

    and the views from the lodge

    When we got inside all my clothes were unpacked (two suitcases full as Henry didnt know what to bring :lmao: ), and there was champagne and flowers:

    Henry then sat me down and proposed - I said yes of course! Here is my ring :goodvibes

    and some more photos of the interior of the lodge

    We then went for dinner at the Bistro on the grounds, which was lovely

    and then drank the rest of our champagne in our outdoor hot tub!

    and Bettys tea room for lunch

    We then had another lovely night in the lodge (and hot tub!) on Saturday night before returning on Sunday :sad:

    Were planning on a December 2010 WDW wedding :goodvibes , both families are very excited so we just need the exchange rate too pick up!:rotfl:

    Congratulations. I wish the news would talk about happy events like this instead of its usual doom and gloom.
