    Well I am getting pressure to start this thing so here goes!

    Friday, February 13th

    Right after school, me, DF and the whole family raced, and I mean raced, home to get in the van to hit the road!

    I'll spare you the details on the 20 hr. ride down....but we did have Roy Roger's for dinner (because they only seem to have them on the Jersey TPKE! :)

    Saturday, February 14th (Valentine's!)

    We have Denny's for breakfast in Georgia (love Denny's) and even love it more because it had WiFi!!

    Drive, drive, drive, and finally....we reach Orlando!!!

    Check into our timeshare...Sheraton Vistana (cannot rave about this place anymore...its beautiful!) I go to check in...and we find out that we are in a different section of the resort...um OK. I was taken aback because our place was in the newest portion and they were putting us in one of the oldest. When I asked why this was, the guy said that they were letting returning owners check out their new updates! :banana: So we were in a new model with all new everything! (I will have to post those pics later because I can't find them)

    So we unpack, throw on shorts....but DF forgot his shorts at home! He had to wear my dad's for that first day! :rotfl2:

    So we wanted to check out the YCG and Ariel's because DF had never seen it. Here are some pics, as well as my sis trying to take "engagement photos."

    Love it even more

    OK enough already...
    [​IMG]

    Now onto to Ariel's

    He really liked the light, airy feeling if the place. I don't want to post many pics....you gals know what it looks like...

    [​IMG]

    I LOVE the chandeliers...
    [​IMG]

    Now I want to try to create centerpieces to reflect the beauty of those chandeliers.....if you have suggestions, please share!

    After, we went to Walmart and DTD...grabbed some dinner and crashed....

    To be continued.....

    Day 2, Sunday - First Full Day!!

    So off to the Magic Kingdom!!! We redeem our Wedding APs and my parents go and buy theirs. Then they gave us Just Engaged and I'm Celebrating! buttons.

    We decided to wait for the front of the monorail because Matt hadn't been there in 10 years and had never done it.

    My sister's flash is so bright that I often am quinting in the pics...

    After, that we headed to Tom Sawyer's Island...but we did not find anything :| :)

    We headed to Fantasyland and took in Peter Pan and Philharmagic. In the meantime, we sent my Dad and bro to go get Fast Passes for Buzz Lightyear. When they returned, my dad has a chocolate ring around his mouth......he denied have a premium bar...yea right!

    Onto Tomorrowland!

    Then the People Mover...
    [​IMG]

    We hit up the Starlight Cafe and it was packed!! Oh, and we know why....Pecos Bill's was closed :|

    It was still yummy!

    Well we decided that we want to head out and go to EPCOT at this point so we walked towards the exit, taking in the shops and such.

    Matt peers over and sees this in a window...
    [​IMG]

    So pretty! He actually goes in the store an buys it!!!

    [​IMG]
    OK, so maybe he didn't buy it...but a girl can dream right?

    So we hop on the monorail and head to EPCOT!
    [​IMG]

    We take in Spaceship Earth and then head to the Innoventions to get our free photo with our Disney Visa's. Mickey and Minnie had so much fun with Matt and I and made him get down on one knee! I will try and scan that photo later...

    Well since we were there, we decided to take in the little Segway intro. It was really cool and I think we will have to take in a tour on our honeymoon!

    He wasn't willing to drop a mere $25,000.00 on a breakable castle? Seriously? Dump him. :rotfl:
