Well, here I go... my attempt to start my Disney Wedding Planning Journal! I have read so many fabulous PJs and TRs, so I wanted to contribute to the club also! I am a little intimidated, but I will try to do my best! Where is all started! Jared and I met in 1999 while working at Kmart together. I would love to say it was love at first sight, but no! I was a senior in high school and he was attending a local community college. He just didnt hit my radar, but I am pretty sure I hit his! My first impression of Jared was as "the thin, squirrelly, outgoing comedian guy that worked in the sporting goods department". I didn't pay much attention due to senior year activities, until I found him waiting for me by my car after work one evening, looking quite nervous... very out of his character. He asked me if I would like to go to see a movie with him that evening, and feeling his nervousness I said yes! Our first date was that very evening. He took me to see the great, new movie at the time: The Sixth Sense . if that tells you anything! After that night, I wasnt too interested still, but I could tell he was. He called me frequently each week for the next few months, and we went on little dinner and movie dates every couple of weeks, but I wasnt head-over-heels .yet! HE WAS! Then it happened! It was early January 2000, (our first date The Sixth Sense date had been in August 1999) and we were on one of our little friendly dates when we decided to go to Wal-Mart dont ask me why! We were playing around with the fun kids toys in the toy aisle and I came across a fabulous Eeyore Plush that sang a dreary song! I loved it so much that I was tickled to tears! Jared was very delighted by my obsession over this Eeyore and he referred to it frequently after that night. Before that he didnt realize my passion for all things Disney, but he received a little taste that day. During our next date, he told me he had a present to give me and low-and-behold, it was the Dreary Eeyore that I fell in love with. From that point on we had an obsession with Eeyore! Anytime we saw anything Eeyore we had to buy it it got so bad that our families joined in. We developed quite a collection of Eeyore memorabilia over the next few months and then one Eeyore item caught my attention. On our first Christmas as a couple (2000), everyone close to us was aware of our sudden Eeyore thing, and they must have all shopped at the Disney Store that year because I received four of the same mini-Eeyore-snowglobe. Then I fell in love with Disney mini-snowglobes and to this day I now have over 300 of them. Yes, I have an overwhelming collection of Disney snowglobes. After all of this rambling I promise I have a point. Disney has been a part of my life since I was a child, but it is a huge part of Jareds and my relationship. In 2003, we finally saved enough money to make our first trip to Walt Disney World We loved it so much we have been back every year since. He proposed to me at Disney World in August of 2005, one of the happiest days of my life. I was very surprised and caught off guard. He popped the question as we were flying around the Magic Kingdom on the back of Dumbo! Yes, he proposed to me while riding Dumbo the Flying Elephant! As we where imagining our wedding, we could not think of any place more perfect than to be married at Walt Disney World. So in June 2008, Jared and I will be married at Disneys Sea Breeze Point, witnessed by a small group of family and friends. I hope you enjoy reading about our wedding preparations throughout the next several months! I know it will be my Year of a Million Dreams!
