    We had our first trip to Disney in September 2005. We'd had a lazy day that morning and then I surprised him: I'd booked La Nouba at 6pm and Rainforest Cafe for 8.30pm. He loved them both and so did I!!! La Nouba was absolutely amazing, so much going on at once - had no idea where to look :laughing: Had a yummy meal at RC and a couple of drinks in the very funky flash glasses - which amused me for hours & they still work now!! :thumbsup2 We then did an hour of shopping and got a taxi back to the resort. We were staying in a deluxe room at the Wilderness Lodge and had a lovely view of the lagoon and the walkway to the boat taxi - reminded me of Dawson's Creek so I loved it!!! Anyway, after we got back I put my slippers on and went to the loo and Den said he was just nipping out and I thought 'Where on earth is he going at midnight???' :confused3 Then after about 10 mins, my mobile rang and it was Den telling me to open the doors and come out on to the balcony (I thought I'd locked him out there or something :laughing: ) He was stood on the boat dock and told me to meet him down there :confused3 Ok I said, whilst trying to find the bug spray!! (How romantic!! lol )

    I felt like I was on Fear Factor LMAO I had to walk through the garden areas and along the path in the pitch black listening to all the bug noises and please bare in mind that I hate bugs, spiders, snakes, those little lizard things and they were all there in the bushes ready to just pounce on me! :scared: But I did it and met up with him on the dock, he took me to the end of it and sat me on the bench - I still didn't have a clue what was going on, thought he might have hired a boat as a surprise or something - no idea what was coming next.

    Then he walked over with a 'Cinderella' style cushion and got down on one knee (Tissues please! :lovestruc ) On the cushion there was a tiara which he placed on my head, and a Stitch teddy holding a ring (I adore stitch!!!) and he had wrote a poem about 'Princess Joanne' and read it to me and then asked me to marry him, I said yes :love: (More tissues please :cloud9: )

    I can't decide what im looking forward to the most *** everything is so wonderful over there! Every part of the wedding and those two weeks is going to be great :cloud9:

    You're alot more organised than me, my dress doesnt come in until the start of august :sick: but Im trying to stay as calm as possible about it by stressing about other things :lmao: I've got loads and loads to do!

    Paying for it is a total pain isnt it! Wish disney offered free weddings, now theres a magical idea ;) :rotfl:

    We were thinking of doing the sand ceremony too, but we might be switching to the hand tying one or the rose ceremony, too many decisions! :confused:

    Thankyou sweetheart! :hug: Hows you? and hows married life??

    Im excited but really stressed out at the same time *** Ive got loads to do, but i'll get there in the end - once Im on the plane i'll be ok, I hope! :laughing:

    I've still got some of your pics saved so I can show Randy a couple of shots that Id love to have - that one of you both upstairs infront of the chandelier at the GF is to die for *faints* I would have copied your FHM shot but I dont want to make DF regret the marriage so soon by waving my tree trunk thighs at him :lmao: :lmao: ;)

    Married life is fantabulous... I should have done it years ago! (Oh yeah... I did... urm..... :rotfl: ) I have finally gotten around to ordering our prints today to shove in an album which can go in a drawer never to see the light of day again!! We're currently going through 'itchyfeetitis' We're not happy unless we have a trip somewhere in the pipeline but alas, we've decided to be grown up and responsible, and skip another trip this year in favour of paying the VISA off once and for all :rolleyes: Watch this space though!!

    Dinner on the Grand 1, and then a dessert party for just the 2 of you sounds absolutely sensational *swoons* You are going to have THE most amazing time. Are you having any kind of reception over here once you get home?!

    Glad you are happy honey!! :goodvibes Shove them in a drawer, are you insane!!! :scared1: If I had your pics, I would be plastering them all over my walls, the car, hanging them around my neck and sticking one on the dog just for good luck! :cutie:

    Awww, skipping a trip is no good - but I know what you mean though, we're saving like mad and are so gonna go over budget, but it'll all be worth it - thats what I keep telling myself anyway :laughing: We probably wont get another trip for at least 5 years while we are paying it all off :sick:

    Thankyou :hug: It's gonna be fab! I think we are just having starters & a main course on the boat, then scoffing the desserts at the party ;) I've got to make up for being on a crash diet :laughing:

    Yeah, we're gonna have a little party. Not sure of all the ins & outs of it yet because Im trying to just concentrate on the wedding now that its so close.

    I cant believe you've been married for over 3 months, that has gone sooo fast :scared1:
