Hi everyone! I have been lurking around the boards for several months. I came across them one day while searching for pricing information on DFTWs. I never dreamed of posting, but it seems like a great place to put down my thoughts and get feedback about some of my wedding ideas. Of course, DF had to give me a nudge since I can be almost painfully shy. Anyway, let me introduce myself and DF. My name is Sharli, my mom has always called me "charliegirl". I just turned 36 this past August. I work for Ernst & Young in the HR department, however, I just happened into the job. I actually went to school for Fashion Merchandising. I love fashion, even if I can't always afford what I like. DF's name is Shane. He is 35, 6 months younger than me. He is a technician for AT&T. He likes sports, but mostly baseball. He grew up in California, so he's been to DisneyLand a million times but never to WDW. About Us: We live in Dallas, TX and met through friends three days after my birthday. DF likes to say I was delivered to his doorstep because I came to his place one night with a friend of a friend so we could all go out together (there were 4 of us). He must have changed his clothes 4 or 5 times before deciding what to wear. We ended up hitting it off and started hanging out with each other. We officially became BF/GF in January of 2010, funny because I didn't even know we were officially dating. The Proposal It was a pretty simple proposal, but DF completely surprised me! We had been talking about getting married for a long time. Actually, DF has been talking about marriage since shortly after we first met. Anyway, I'd been having a pretty bad week and he asked me if I wanted to go see Chicago: The Musical that Friday (August 17th, the weekend before my birthday). It's one of my favorites, so of course I said yes. We had dinner and went to see the show. When we got home I went in the bedroom to change my clothes. (I always do this. It's the first thing I do whenever I get home and know I won't be going anywhere else.) When I came out of the bedroom and back into the living room, DF was holding a dozen red roses. I said, "Aww, roses! Where'd those come from?!!" He told me he'd hidden them in the laundry room. I said thank you, told him they were beautiful and gave him a kiss. Then I started to read the card. As I was reading the card he got down on his knee and began telling me all these sweet things. I remember them vaguely, most of it is a blur. He pulled out the ring box and asked me if I would marry him. I said yes and he placed the ring on my finger. I do remember saying, "I can't believe you're proposing and I'm standing here in my pjs!!" He kept asking me if I had any idea and I assured him I had none. That's pretty much it. Pictures to come.
