I am so excited to be posting a PJ!!! I have to thank all of you for all the great info on this board. I hope my vow renewal PJ will help those planning. So lets start with how we met! We met in Oct. of 1993. I was going into The Gap at the local mall(I had just moved into the area with my parents, I was turning 18) for an interview and DH was working at the entrance as the greeter. I took one look at him and told my mother that is the man I am going to marry! It was so weird, I just knew. He was so handsome and he had me at "hello, welcome to The Gap"!!! We started dating on Feb. 6th 1994. He moved into my parents house(he had a horrible childhood, really tough and was living in his car! My parents let him live in the downstairs bedroom, they loved him the minute they met him too!) after about a month of us dating. Everyone in the family was skeptical and it was a really big problem for a lot of people. I didn't care. We got our own place after about a year. For the first 2 years of our relationship things were tough. We had a rocky relationship but we worked things out. We were in love and knew we would be together forever. The proposal Could you believe I forgot the exact date! I know it was the beginning of Jan. 1997. We were at my cousin's daughters first bday party and he was suppose to propose there.(everyone knew but me!) He chickened out because there were a lot of people there. That night we got home late, it was about 11pm and we were changing to get ready to go eat at a diner. I was sitting on our bed changing my shoes and he comes over to me on one knee and pulls out a box. I thought he was joking and was telling him to stop and hurry up and get changed because I was hungry!!LOL Well he opened the box and there was the ring! He told me how much he loved me and asked me to be his wife. I was so happy, surprised and excited. My parents threw us a fabulous engagement party with all our family and friends. The even hired professional singers to sing our favorite love songs! Then we started to plan our wedding. The First Wedding We were planning a big wedding. We picked a date(June 1998) went to a whole bunch of venues, did tastings, I tried dresses, etc, etc... Well, on June 18th 1997 I found out I was pregnant! We really weren't trying NOT to have a baby so even though it was a surprise, we knew it could happen and we were so excited. Everyone else, not so much! My dad told us to get married right away and we did a month later. We married on July 21st 1997 at the courthouse with 25 of our closest family members and friends. It was at 9am, I was throwing up, it was 100 degrees and we had no plans for a honeymoon! I had no dress, I started showing right away. I actually wore a black and floral baby doll dress. We all went out to breakfast afterwards and DH and I drove down to WDW. We had no plan. We didn't book anything! We ended up at a Best Western in Orlando. We went to MGM, MK, and Epcot and also went to Universal. I was so sick and even threw up at the parks. It wasn't the ideal honeymoon but that was OK. We were just happy to be married! Our family today consists of Myself(32) and DH(35), DD(9 turning 10 the end of this month!) and DS(4), and 2 babies in heaven. Oh, I can't forget our doggie ToTo(she's a Yorkie) I'll post pictures as soon as DH scans them into the computer for me. I didn't have a digital camera back then! Oh gosh I don't even think they were out yet, I'm old! I'll start posting my plans soon.
