    Love, love, LOVE the engagement story!!!:love:

    I think it's great that he was able to keep the surprise for so long, and what a sweet way to propose. I love the flowers and M&M photo, too. We still need to get that framed, actually!

    Yay! We made it to engagement day! I have to agree with Alicia that this story is just as good the second time around! Now, after this weekend, here's my advice for you. Take in every moment you can! It really does go by too fast and it's all so wonderful so take a moment, look around you, and do your best to remember every detail about the planning and then again on your wedding day! Can't wait to hear about the rest of your trip and planning in your other report! Wish I could do it all again!

    Completely agree! Everyone told me that the day would fly by, but whenever I saw how much time we had our reception booked for, I thought we'd start to get bored. Turns out, I felt like the whole thing was only an hour! Parts of it were a blur, and I still feel like it went by too fast. :rotfl:

    Thank you :goodvibes I can't believe he made it that far into the trip without giving it away :rotfl: That is too sweet he couldn't wait and was too excited and nervous, that is so cute!! We love POP, that is our home away from home at Disney

    Thank you so much :goodvibes

    Thank you :goodvibes We have it sitting around in our tiny home office area, we really need to get that picture framed or at least put it out

    Thank you :cutie:

    Thank you so much for that advice, I just teared up reading that, Its so much planning and I'm worried its going to fly by in a second. I am going to remember your advice and just take a moment during the day to just let it all sink in.

    I will make sure to pull Tim aside at some point and just take a look around and remember the day, the time leading up to the wedding is flying by and Im sure the same will happen once we are there

    Thank you :goodvibes mine is from a Disney Store outlet and Tim's is from Target

    Thank you :goodvibes I am finally back to update, I have been away from the boards as well, glad to have you back :thumbsup2

    Well it’s hard to top engagement day, but we had a couple more days of vacation and we had to celebrate :goodvibes Tim had “Just Engaged” buttons ready for us to wear and I was pretty excited!

    We were off to EPCOT for a second day to spend some more time checking out F&W festival and see anything we missed our first day there. And of course lets start the day with a photopass shoot please!

    [​IMG]

    So the photographer kept saying “turn and kiss each other” but with her heavy accent, Tim and I both kept hearing “Turn and lick each other” So I just had to share our awkward kiss while laughing picture. We decided Stitch in the corner summed up that moment, we couldn’t stop laughing

    [​IMG]

    We were off to ride Test Track and Soarin first, we were able to get on both easily and had a blast! I am so sad we aren’t going to be able to ride Test Track on our honeymoon trip, since it will still be under refurb.

    We headed to Innoventions next to walk around and check out the exhibits, I talked Tim into doing the Great Piggy Bank Adventure. Mainly because the pig is adorable and looks like the piggy bank we have at home to save for WDW trips. This exhibit is really fun even for just 2 adults with no children, we had a great time and the CMs working there were so nice.

    We did a great job saving during the game and worked up an appetite. We headed to WS and stopped in Hawaii to have our favorite, the pork sliders again

    [​IMG]

    And at 11 am, what goes better with that then a Mai Tai

    [​IMG]

    Epcot really is so beautiful, I always have to take a picture of this view

    [​IMG]

    While walking around WS, we decided we needed some dessert. We picked an Italian canola, one of Tim’s favorites

    [​IMG]

    I had to snap a picture, because this Aladdin looks like John Stamos to me :rotfl:

    [​IMG]

    We decided to take a break to sit and relax before our lunch ADR at Chefs. We found a bench over by International Gateway

    Repeat Epcot days are great, because you feel like you can do some stuff you missed the first time aroun. And how exciting that you got to wear your Just Engaged buttons for the first time! Doesn't it feel great having a celebration button on? :goodvibes

    That pork slider still looks so good. I told Alex I have to try that this fall. (If it's there.)

    Now that would make an interesting Photopass picture. :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    I didn't realize how quick your wedding was coming up until you mentioned that Test Track would still be closed. It won't be long now! :thumbsup2

    If you're going to try and top it, Disney is probably your best bet.

    :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    This is a family park. Save those pictures for Universal.

    :sad1: We're going to miss out this summer, too.

    Great PP pics! Love the story behind the kiss/lick photo lol and why Stitch is in the corner.

    We did the Great Piggy Bank Adventure and have to agree that even with two adults it is entertaining.

    Mmm I so want to plan a trip around the F&W festival...all the reports around that time always have yummy treats! I love the pic of the view of Epcot...it captures the park so nicely.

    LOL at your Stitch picture!! So funny!!

    I've never done the Piggybank Adventure! We will have to try it next time. That piggy is cute! Love the family portrait. :laughing:

    MMMM.. food porn! I want that canola!

    OMG. The resemblance between Aladdin and John is uncanny!! Weird...

    You two are my favorites. Love you twinny!

    :rotfl: John Stamos! I can totally see that!

    Aw that's right, TT will be down through Nov 30. I'm REALLY hoping that they open up by Nov 30 and don't push it back, seeing as we'll be getting there Dec 8th. :eek:

    EPCOT a second time is really great, I feel a lot more relaxed :thumbsup2

    I loved wearing the Just Engaged buttons, it was fun to have that little bit of attention :goodvibes

    I hope the pork slider is back it was really my favorite of all the F&W I tried

    Tim wanted to delete the photopass picture, so I added Stitch so we could keep it :rotfl:

    Its only about 2 and a half months away now :eek: time is flying!

    :rotfl::rotfl: So true, that behavior is not tolerated at EPCOT :rotfl:

    If you ever get the chance to plan a trip sometime during F&W you should, its a great time and there is tons of yummy food!!

    You will love the piggy bank adventure, its so cute, plus its a game and we love games!!

    Isn't that so weird?? Jasmine was waving to us after I took the picture, I wanted to yell I love you Uncle Jessie to John Stamos look alike Aladdin but she was blocking him :rotfl:

    We really did have awesome weather the whole trip, it was great :goodvibes

    I'm glad you see it too!! I should have specified John Stamos from Full House era :rotfl:

    Hopefully you will be able to ride and take lots of pictures, it looks like the refurb will be really cool!! :goodvibes

    I was so afraid I was going to be like three updates behind, and I was thrilled when I was only one. :goodvibes

    What a nice day for the newly engaged couple and a great place to spend that day -- Epcot.

    That sandwich from Hawaii looks really, really yummy.

    And despite my dislike of Stitch, that is a great photopass pic. :thumbsup2
