Relaxed and Romanced...

Just got back yesterday from an 8 day vacation. I know, who the heck can take an 8 day vacation. More importantly, who can survive one? Evidently I had more staying power than I knew because I made it with flying colors.

Went to Florida for the B.F.s 30 year high school reunion. Now before you do the math, it was his 30 year, not mine. :-D We left on Wednesday morning, flew directly to Orlando and were whisked away from the airport in a minivan belonging to his brother which also contained his three children. Five kids and three adults crammed into a sardine can and we were outnumbered by sticky fingered midgets.

Thursday we took B.F.s 10 year old and my 5 year old daughter's to Disney World. I had never been. My daughter had also never been. It truly is the most magical place on earth! Took the train in from the parking lot, hopped on the sky train over to the park and then began taking pictures like we were Asian tourists. We made it all of the way to Cinderella's castle when I noticed the B.F. was a little pale and shaky. I was worried he might be getting sick, when he put is arm around me and I could feel him quivering like jello . His daughter was poised to take our picture when he reached into his pocket and pulled out a small, blue box. Yes, he proposed to me in front of Cinderella's castle. How romantic! I was also very relieved that he wasn't sick, just nervous! His color picked up pretty quickly and the rest of the day was a lot more relaxed. Too funny!!

We are working on the venue but are going for the short engagement. Aiming for 9/10/11 just for grins. No, I am NOT pregnant. LOL!!!


  1. SHUT. UP.


    And how sweet! I had also thought of 11/11/11 because it will be almost and my 5th year dating anniversary. Word to the wise though, everyone does it, so start looking to book NOW. :)

  2. Switch it to 11/11/11. I'll be in town then! :)
    And it was very hard to keep your secret while you were away.
    AND, show them the ring!!!!!

  3. AAAHHH I'm so happy for you! Congrats. I'm hoping to go to Disney next summer with my kids as they have never gone. Of course I can't live anywhere near one so I have to figure out all the bla bla but how fun. Welcome back!
