Our Magical Disney Engagement: The Finale {pic heavy}

So, I had the opportunity to meet every.single.princess during the rountable!  Here are a few shots...

I don’t know what I was thinking that night, but every princess left a subtle hint:

• Sleeping Beauty said, “ You are going to have sweet dreams tonight!”

• Belle said, “ I need your beau to train my beast!”

• Ariel said, “ This night will be out of this world!”

• Snow White said, “Has your prince been in the diamond mine with my dwarfs.”

• Cinderella said, “Dreams Do Come True!”

As apparent as they were I did not give any of them a second thought… I just assumed that they were in character and it was a part of the act! LOL! Silly me!

After my last snapshot with the princesses, I finally sat down to enjoy my dinner. Within moments, my wonderful Robert turned to me and said…

“Every princess has flowers…. And every princess has a tiara… What else does every princess have?”

I said, “A prince.” He laughed and got down on one knee and said, “I found your slipper and it is the perfect fit!” He slipped the glass slipper on my foot and began to sing “You are So Beautiful to Me “ in his loving, soothing and soulful voice!” He is an awesome singer… All the lights in the castle were turned down and the spotlight was on our table!

Once completed the song… He said, “You are a perfect fit in my life… My life is the better because of you.... (and some other stuff that I cannot recall no matter how hard I try)! Will you marry me? I fought the tears and the sudden feeling of fainting and let out a screech on that had been lying dormant on the inside of me for the past four years!!! Yes! Yes! Yes!

The knight then delivered the ring on beautiful platter with a dome that was covered in diamonds… The ring rested on a rose petal inside of another miniature glass slipper that read, “Melanie and Robert 11.24.12!” How amazing!!! He placed the ring on my finger and I got up to embrace him…. As I embraced him I held my left hand to get a view of the ring. It was gorgeous and everything that I could have desired and more! I screamed again as I fought to keep my knees steady!!! LOL!

There was a thunderous round of applause in the castle and we immediately toasted to our engagement! Someone came over the loudspeaker at the castle and declared that Lord Robert and Princess Melanie had just been engaged!

My appetite was non-existent at this point and Robert definitely understood why… But, the proposal was not over!!!

He rushed me to the front of the castle to our front row seats to watch the fireworks show… It was nothing short of spectacular!!!!! You have not seen a firework show until you have seen one @ Disney!!! It is the best ever!!!

After the fireworks show we returned to the castle so that we could settle our tickets… As we waited outside, his sister and brother-in-law gifted us with bride and groom Mickey and Minnie ears with our names engraved on the back in gold!!! Hence our wedding colors are crème and gold!

The rest of the night we floated through the park enjoying the scenery and the rides… Nothing enthused me like before though…

I had just witnessed my dream come true, Our Magical Disney Engagement!
