Josh spent 2 months in Kissimmee, FL with his Aunt Terri and Uncle Steve (Dalton, Paiton, Carter) interning at the City of Kissimmee Parks and Recreation Department. I was busy at home working at 2 restaurants and planned a trip to to Kissimmee to see Josh over the 4th of July weekend. Josh had planned the whole weekend and I was so excited to see him. We planned on going to Disney World on Friday, the beach Saturday and Sunday, shopping till we dropped on Monday, it was going to be perfect. Instead, we spent some of Friday at Disney World, Saturday and Sunday in the hospital, Monday on the couch, and Some light shopping on Tuesday before I left to go back to Holland. Here is the story.....
Friday we woke up and went to Disney with Steve, Terri, Dalton, Paiton, and Carter. After spending the morning on rides, Josh, Steve, and Dalton went on Space Mountain one last time. This time was not so fun though and Steve lost his Oakley sunglasses. While Steve and Terri spent some time looking for the glasses, Josh, myself, and the kids went and looked around various shops. While in the Space Mountain shop, unknowingly to me, Josh made a Mickey Mouse necklace (this will come into play later).
We went for lunch and Josh was starting to not feel too well, he didn't eat but after sitting for a while felt good enough to get up and walk again. We made our way to another part of the park and on our way we passed by Cinderella's Castle. I was walking ahead of Josh and I felt something around my neck. I turned around to see what was going on and noticed a Mickey Mouse head on a necklace. I flipped the necklace around and read what was inscribed on the back, it said
"Marry Me July 1, 2011"
I turned around to look at Josh and he was down on one knee, with a little blue velvet box holding the most perfect diamond ring! All I remember is throwing my hands up over my mouth and gasping for air. There I stood in front of Cinderella's Castle with my best friend down on one knee! How perfect is that?! To make it even more perfect, there was no one within 20 ft of us in both directions. It's like the crowd parted and made a spotlight for the most perfect moment of my life. I don't even remember what he said, I just remember him putting the ring on my finger and him hugging me! It was perfect! We were engaged and not less than a minute later, it started to rain. This rain was a foreshadowing of the next couple of days! I was the happiest person in the whole park but little did I know, Josh was feeling sicker and sicker. We spent the next couple of hours moseying around the park before Josh had to stop and sit down. He was in so much pain and we eventually had to leave the park earlier then we were planning on. Once we got home Josh immediately went to sleep and by 7am he was in so much pain we had to go to the ER. Josh was admitted from the ER and needed and appendectomy. I spent the next 10 hours in the waiting room as Josh waited in pre-op for 8 hours. He spent the night in the hospital where I stayed and slept in the chair next to him. The rest of the vacation was spent in the recovery room and then recovering on the couch. We did not end up going to the beach or shopping as much as I had hoped, I didn't get to lay out and embrace the Florida sun but this mini-vacation was the best of my life!

Picking my wedding dress from Best for Bride was completely painless. I was a little discouraged at first and wasn't loving the dress. Everyone wanted me to choose when the sales associate Natalia asked me if I had tried on a certain dress. When I responded "no", she told me to try it on and that it was going to be my dress. She was right!! I was crying before I left the changeroom, and once my mom and wedding party saw it and started crying I knew I had found the dress. I kept losing weight leading up until the wedding and alterations was great, fitting the dress exactly how I wanted it. When I walked down the aisle and my husband started to cry I knew then just how perfect the dress was. Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day!!!!
Sorry I have taken so long.

We had a wonderful experience. I came in to find a dress for my niece's wedding and I found the perfect dress and the girls were great to alter it. I came back a month later and and it was altered wonderfully and I can't say enough. They are very friendly and accommodating and we've had everything. Everything has been great, has been wonderful.
Wonderful, thank you.
