Since its our anniversary week, I have decided to post some special memories surrounding our engagement, wedding & honeymoon! Hope you enjoy!
RJ & I got engaged on June 13, 2011. We had been together since February 14, 2008 (he picked that day because it was "easy to remember") & never taken vacation with each other! I just graduated from nursing school that May, and he told me he was taking me a graduation vacation to my favorite place in the whole world..DISNEY WORLD, of course. Told y'all I loved Disney ;).
We spent the first day just walking around after arriving. We grabbed some takeout from Olive Garden & he said he was going to set it up outside on the patio for dinner while I unpacked. I thought nothing of it because it wasn't unusual for him to want to sit outside to eat. I came outside & the food was all set up for us. We ate & just chatted about how excited I was to be there & what we would be getting into the next few days!
The sun began to set at this point & he asked me if I wanted to dance. I was still so clueless at this point..silly girl. Guess I didn't want to get my hopes up in case nothing happened! I didn't realize it, but he had done research and perfectly timed what time the fireworks went off at the Magic Kingdom & he made a playlist of love songs. At the exact moment that the fireworks were going off, Taylor Swifts "Love Story" started playing. He started his whole speech, which sadly I can't even remember now because I was in such shock. He got down on one knee & proposed! I got down to his level & said "are you serious!?" then proceeded to ask if he had already asked my parents & he said yes! We called our parents & the rest of our family & began the celebrations!

Of course we went to the Magic Kingdom, & I made him pay for all the pics they took of us, naturally. How can you not when you're in DISNEY!
|It was so hot & I was a sweaty mess but who cares because I'M ENGAGED!|
And we may or may not have gotten matching shirts made to celebrate the occassion...
And the rest is history! Of course I started planning while we were there & he so sweetly bought me all the wedding magazines at the airport which I know cost an arm & a leg-haha. It was an amazing trip & a perfect engagement. He did everything I would have ever wanted & I'm so glad I finally wrote it all down so I can remember it for years to come & Harper can read exactly how it happened from my words!
