Hi Everyone!! I've been lurking on these boards for awhile now and now that we are planning our own wedding, I thought I would start (attempt) a PJ! I am certainly not as tech savvy as most of you so I may need some help along the way! About Us: I am Tricia (28), DF is Josh (30), we are both from and currently live in Connecticut! We've been dating for 6.5 years and recently got engaged on 8/6/11. We were set up on a blind date with friends on New Years Day 2005 and have been inseperable ever since! We bought our house together last July (2010) and got a chocolate lab puppy we adore, named Goonie this past April! Our ties to Disney: My family belongs to DVC, and I grew up going to Disney once or twice a year since I was little. For awhile I went through a period when I thought I was "too cool" for Disney since all my friends mocked me for going so much, but I still never passed up a trip to go! Josh hadn't been to Disney since he was little when we first started dating, and this to me was madness! Luckily we could use the DVC points to go on vacation, so I took him back in 2006 for our first official vacation together. Seeing his reaction as he walked back into the Magic Kingdom was priceless and all the things he got so excited to see made my heart melt! We've been going back every year since, and even tried Disneyland in 2007, and Disney's Hilton Head resort in 2009. We can't wait to take our future kiddos! The Proposal: Being the impatient planner that I am, I've been waiting what seems like for-ev-er for Josh to pop the question! My birthday was 8/7 and I dropped a few hints to him that it would make a great birthday if he would ask me to be his wife! We were having a family cookout the night before since my actual birthday was on Sunday this year, so when we woke up Saturday morning, he told me he was going to make me breakfast in bed. I got so excited it might happen, but I also tried to keep calm since I'd gotten myself excited before and it hadn't happened (6 and a 1/2 years... haha). After we had breakfast he told me he was going to give me my present then too. He came back in the room with our pup and handed me the ring box, right there in bed, in my pj's, he proposed!! I am very outgoing but also get nervous in front of a lot of people so I was so happy he did it in such a simple, personal and intimate way! Only 5 days after we got engaged, I found myself on the phone with Disney giving our contact information and waiting for a coordinator to be assigned!!
