Once I can figure this thing out and there aren't a million woman having babies I will be able to catch up more!! ps i would love tell my pt's to wait a few minutes while I jump on the boards but the babies unfortunately can't feed themselves yet, and I'm sure I would get fired if I told a woman to hold off on the pushing while I was sitting here trying to pick out which smiley face to post!!:banana:

YAY you must be JESS!!!!! We were wondering if you were ever going to come! I think your patients would totally understand if you explained to them about the boards:lmao: Especially if the woman's in transition... :furious:that would go over really well!:rotfl: Anyways...

Ok so I have a few updates for now, I will post more tonight about it because I am at work without my camera to post pics grrrr! But yesterday was our engagement party! We ended up with a great day, tons of leftover food and only a 1/2 hour of rain. Not too shabby!

Both of our families were over for it and my mom went sooooo overboard with food, we have insane amounts of leftovers in my fridge right now but oh well! The only downside to the day was at the end of the night Dave said to me (which I thought was pretty cute) "I hate having parties because i never spend any time with you" which I couldn't agree with more. Dave and I were both running around all day and didn't even have a moment together:confused3. Oh well, it was a great day! Tons of family came and hung out with us for the afternoon and we had alot of fun.

I have a bunch of pics I can show you guys later too. My aunt sent me a few from her camera and I want to see my moms too!

My MOH (Disney_RN) Jess gave me 2 totally awesome gifts, she got me a Mickey Mouse garter for my something blue! It is so cute and has a 3 pearls on it as a hidden mickey too! It is awesome! And then she found the most amazingly unique gift ever. She got us (well more me then Dave I think lol) a Disney Princess Wedding M&M's Candy Machine filled with Disney Princess Wedding M&M's! It is super cute and I put it on the table yesterday and people kept asking where we found it! Here are the M&m's and here is the dispenser too!

Love the dispenser and the M&Ms. I saw the candy when it came out a while ago how awesome that your friend bought you that as a gift. I probably wouldn't want to eat them because they're so cute, lol :rotfl:

Thanks Vanessa, again I really appriciate it! I was joking that the M&M's are "Bride Diet Approved" the dispenser makes you put a quater in to get some M&M's, so I have to think twice, and it's portion controlled lol! I sorta don't want to eat them eithier though, they are so cute!

Super Cute garter!! I can't wait to see pics from the party! :) Sounds like it was a lot of fun:)

I promise to post some soon, actually I may have a few today now that I think of it... I'm on it!

That is the cutest candy dispenser ever!!! Great gift Jess (and welcome to the boards :goodvibes)

Thanks Shannon, I thought it was super cute too! Pics on the way!

Love the garter! So cute! :)

Thanks Sarah!:goodvibes

That candy dispenser is too cute and I love those M&M's!!!! Awesome gift! Do you know where she found it?

Thanks Adelia, she got it on the M&M's website, they have lots of different disney M&M's now too, I looked at them and saw the baby ones which are super cute too!

Wow, that dispenser is fantastic! Very cool shower gift. :thumbsup2 I love the garter too, very cute. The hidden Mickey is very cute and now you know you're covered for something blue!

Exactly! I have my something blue done, (I am all for checking things off my wedding list lol)

Good idea! We should! Although it may have to be a coffee hour in the afternoon for Stacey because of the time difference:goodvibes. How cool would it be if Oprah found out and flew us to WDW:rolleyes:... a girl can dream right:woohoo:

My dad however relaxed all day and was quiet a lounger lol! He claims he had 4 hamburger...

What a cute idea for the sorority! There are several of the private Disney Bride boards that have formal meets at Disney every few years with planned get-togethers at the parks, etc. Some of them even make custom shirts to match too princess:

Looks like everyone had a great time at your engagement party, looking forward to seeing even more pictures.

I love your garter! It is soooo cute! And the candy machine is a fabulous idea! I have told everyone in my household to keep candy and any other sweets out of my sight until after the big day! The temptation is craziness! And with you and your skittles and M&M's that would be crazy talk in my house! Oh BTW LOOVVEE the favors! They are going to be soo cute and I love the stickers that you got on Etsy! I love Etsy!

Coffee Sundays is a great idea! Me and my BFF who is currently in Scotland going to school have a Wednesday's afternoon / night date! We talk on the webcam and eat good food and maybe drink if necessary! :rotfl2: We should all totally do it! And then wear Oprah shirts and send her a copy of the web chat and then she will have to send us there for sure! :thumbsup2

Hey Sam, we got home from Florida last night and I am still trying to get caught up on 3 weeks of emails and disboard reading. Love the photos from your engagement party. It looks like it was alot of fun. Also love the M&M dispenser. I checked out the website and it is not available at the moment (probably because everyone that saw yours loved and it and ordered one).

Can't wait to read more and check out on how everyone is doing. Talk to you soon.

Ok so this is a totally non-wedding related post, just a warning...

So I have been off the boards for a bit, but it was for a good reason... I ended up quiting my job at the Cadillac dealership (this is my last week) because I am working on buying a dance studio! It is the studio I teach at now in Concord, MA (the really historic area in MA, Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, battle of Lexington and Concord etc etc) so it is a fun town! I am taking over the studio from the owner who is moving to LA this summer, so I will now be a small business owner:goodvibes

The process has been very long (and still not done) but it has stressed me out becuase I hatttttte paperwork and legal stuff, but it is neccessary... So I have been a huge emotional mess because I am a bit overwhelmed with all the changes... I know I sound like a huge whiner... but I never thought I would have all these huge life changes within a year of each other, house, wedding, new career... it sort of just got the better of me.

BUT, now I feel very confident in my choice, my students had their reciatl this past weekend and I was insane leading up to it. Some people have no clue how much work goes into a production with 125 people in it! But they did a great job and it all ended up very well :)

This weekend though I was happy for the new business but also sad, you see I have taught at another studio for the past 4 years and the kids are so important to me, and I had to say goodbye to all of them... I was a mess lol! The moms were all saying how much they will miss me and I was just loisng it. (BTW if anyone is interested you can see the video of my hip hop production number on my facebook page)

Soooo that is where I was and what I have been doing, but I am back now, and trust me by next week you will all be sick of me again lol! I have 2 weeks off between the dealership and summer dance starting so I will be on the boards all day long lol!:goodvibes

Really? That seems strange to me, but I am used to world of dance studios galore here in Boston I guess:confused3. Oh and I learned a fun fact the other night, did you know we are not called "Massachusettsians"... the proper term is "Bay Staters"... weird huh? I never knew that, so there is your trivia for the day I guess lol!

Just stopped in to say that is AMAZING that you are a small business owner and I wish you all the luck!!

I know how you feel about all the major life changes happening all at once. I went through that last year - New house, new car, new job, got engaged... all in the span of like 6 months. It's overwhelming, but then it calms down. I look at it like the bandaid effect. If you get it all over with at once, you have more time to enjoy it all after the dust settles before you're due for another biggie:cutie:

Good Luck with everything!

I have been MIA because of computer difficulties. I will definitely check out your posting on Facebook of the dance. I definitely know what you mean about a lot of changes too while planning a wedding. Although, thankfully all of yours are wonderful changes that are exciting :goodvibes Besides my car accident, Kris also started his business right before we got married. Its always exciting, but a little nerve-wracking too. I can't wait to hear about your adventure!

So I have a small update... I got my wedding shoes!!!!! I am sooo in love with them it's not even funny!

So the inspiration shoe that I was in love with were these Stuart Weitzman's... now I absolutely lovvvvved the shoes, but I did not love the $450 price tag:scared1:! And I am pretty sure your shoes shouldn't cost more then your wedding dress :lmao:! Oh, and Dave would've had a stroke if I bought $450 shoes:rotfl2:.

Anyways, here are the $450 shoes for karma!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/stuartshoe.jpg


So I searched all over the internet for similar shoes that didn't have a 4 1/2'' heel, and came up with these. They are 3'' heels (not too crazy right?) and they were only $78. Thats a heck of a lot less then $450!

Here are the wedding shoes, mom is still not convinced of pink shoes, but she'll let it slide lol!

What do you all think???:confused3

Hey Sam, love the shoes. They are somewhat like mine - with the buckle - but mine were in white.

Here is a photo of my shoes and pink crinnie.

Hey, not sure if you are planning on using a crinnie and if you are planning on dying it pink - but I have one that I used and you are more then welcome to it if you want to use it. It has a velcro waistband so it would fit you. I will forward you some photos.

Ohhh they are really similar, I think I almost got those and had them dyed but them I remembered that I had dyed shoes for a wedding I was in, and the dye ran all over my feet when I walked in dewy grass. I had green toes all week lol! I would love to use your crinny though! I was going to dye one myself, but it could be my something borrowed! I am picking up my dress next week and will see if I need a crinny with it, I don't think I ever tried it with one:confused3 Thanks so much Linda:goodvibes

You girls are a riot! :lmao: I'm not a DISBride (hopefully in the not to far off future, though) but I love reading the planning process you guys do! I'm planning on a DFTW and I'll probably being borrowing a lot of your ideas that you borrowed when it comes around. :goodvibes And congrats on the dance studio! I took dance for 11 years when I was younger. There's a soft spot in my heart for the teachers. Anyway, I look forward to reading your progress about your wedding itself!

As far as using a crinnie goes, I was not going to use one as my gown had one already in it but when I tried on my gown with the crinnie it just gave it alittle more body.

So I have a small update... I got my wedding shoes!!!!! I am sooo in love with them it's not even funny!

So the inspiration shoe that I was in love with were these Stuart Weitzman's... now I absolutely lovvvvved the shoes, but I did not love the $450 price tag:scared1:! And I am pretty sure your shoes shouldn't cost more then your wedding dress :lmao:! Oh, and Dave would've had a stroke if I bought $450 shoes:rotfl2:.

Anyways, here are the $450 shoes for karma!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/stuartshoe.jpg


So I searched all over the internet for similar shoes that didn't have a 4 1/2'' heel, and came up with these. They are 3'' heels (not too crazy right?) and they were only $78. Thats a heck of a lot less then $450!

Here are the wedding shoes, mom is still not convinced of pink shoes, but she'll let it slide lol!

Hi there! I found this a couple of days ago, and I just finished reading all 75 pages! You girls are a riot! :lmao: I'm not a DISBride (hopefully in the not to far off future, though) but I love reading the planning process you guys do! I'm planning on a DFTW and I'll probably being borrowing a lot of your ideas that you borrowed when it comes around. :goodvibes And congrats on the dance studio! I took dance for 11 years when I was younger. There's a soft spot in my heart for the teachers. Anyway, I look forward to reading your progress about your wedding itself! Hope you don't mind my coming aboard the train!:dance3:

WELCOME ABOARD:goodvibes! Thanks for reading my ramblings too! Yay for being a future DisBride, the boards really are amazing with being so incredibly helpful and supportive. When it's time to plan your DFTW you know where to come, everyone here is awesome, and the ideasa you can pick up are so great!

Sam, honestly, I much prefer your shoes to the super pricey ones! :cutie: So, nice work!!

Thanks Anjanette, I think knowing that they are $450 also makes them somehow less appealing if that makes sense:lmao:

It could definately be your something borrowed. Let me know and I will ship it out.

Linda

Thanks Linda your the best :goodvibes

I agree...I like your heels better! Good choice!!

Thanks Heidi, and I figure I could easily wear them again after the wedding.

As far as using a crinnie goes, I was not going to use one as my gown had one already in it but when I tried on my gown with the crinnie it just gave it alittle more body.

Linda

I am going to pick up my dress this week so I will def try if with a crinny beofer I bring it home and let you know:goodvibes!

OMG Sam I love them!!:lovestruc I am still looking for mine but wish I wanted pink ones!!

And yay...30 days till your planning session!! I can't wait...take lots of pics!!

haha, what color are you looking for Mandy? I got these on Zappos and the brand they are "RSVP" has tons of cute dressy styles and colors (and white and ivory too) they are very reasonably priced too:goodvibes

what time is your food tasting again? here is what we did so that we could enjoy all the food-ours was at 2:30 and PS was at 9am. what we did was go to Ohana's for breakfast (my fav!) at like 7:30am. we figured since we would not be eating until 2:30, we needed something or by 1 we would have been famished! PS at 9am, ended at 1-1:30 and then just waited until 2:30 to eat. by then we were starving and able to try everything. OMG at the end we could barely walk and i did not eat again until 1:30 the next day!! you are going to have the best time though! so excited for you and to see pics!!!

Sam i forgot to tell you ages ago!

You once said that you can do the meanest Key Lime Pie.... well missy... im afraid i will need to try this pie sometime.

I had my first Key Lime Pie about 1 month ago.

I found one in a supermarket- took it to a party, and i was the only one who ate it. And i ate the whole flipping thing.

I, since then, have become a Key Lime Pie addict. I even have become an addict of the 'Key Lime Cheesecake'.

I will openly admit that i have eaten more than 1 key lime pie whole in one session. (first, i will take a little, then take 1/4, then another slice, then give up and just eat the whole damn thing!)

I love it!!

I must try yours!!

hehheee thats all i wanted to say!

Hope your having a great time!! Thinking of ya!!

Thanks, I'm about to start the TR :)

Can I tell you im a bit upset that our vacations didnt collide? I come home and you left...and you were in NY for my wedding and we didnt see eachother :(

So we must do a gtg soon. Im dying to get vin to MA so we have a mission
Have a wonderful and safe time!

Ohh yes! We must plan a visit :) I was sad we didnt overlap too:eek:

Sam & Dave!!

Have a great time in Disney! Dont forget to take a ton of piccys!

If this trip is anything like the last - its sure going to be a blast!!

thanks Stace! I am uploading as we speak to start the TR

Hey, I just spent my whole sunday afternoon reading your PJ, everything sounds great I will be keeping up with this one!

Can't believe you're off to WDW again and you didn't even finish the last trip report! :rotfl2:

Hope you have a great time.

Aww thanks Davey! My DF has a beer stein that says Davey on it, he lived with 2 other David's in college (so one was David, one was Dave and he was Davey) and when they all graduated Dave made him a beer stein with his nickname on it lol!

Sam i forgot to tell you ages ago!

You once said that you can do the meanest Key Lime Pie.... well missy... im afraid i will need to try this pie sometime.

I had my first Key Lime Pie about 1 month ago.

I found one in a supermarket- took it to a party, and i was the only one who ate it. And i ate the whole flipping thing.

I, since then, have become a Key Lime Pie addict. I even have become an addict of the 'Key Lime Cheesecake'.

I will openly admit that i have eaten more than 1 key lime pie whole in one session. (first, i will take a little, then take 1/4, then another slice, then give up and just eat the whole damn thing!)

I love it!!

I must try yours!!

hehheee thats all i wanted to say!

Hope your having a great time!! Thinking of ya!!

Ohhh nice, my recipe is really easy. And super quick! Sometimes I even like to make a raspberry sauce to pour over it with a little whipped cream! Here is my dear:goodvibes

Easy Key Lime Pie:

5 egg yolks, beaten
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup key lime juice
1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Combine the egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Mix well. Pour into unbaked graham cracker shell.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool. Top with whipped topping and garnish with lime slices if desired.


Raspberry Sauce:

2 cups raspberry preserves
1 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice

mix together and blend in blender until smooth


ENJOY :)

OK First off, I am freaking out a bit that my ticker says less then 6 months to go:eek:

Anyways, sorry I have been MIA (again) the studio is eating up my life, but I have a good amount of students enrolled now, so the next 2 weeks will be crazy but then I can settle into a routine of teaching everyday (and being on here everyday again:goodvibes)

So without further ado... The TR is about to begin!

We woke up bright and early for our 7am flight out of Logan, we had a pretty uneventful flight and trip to the hotel (which is always nice). We stayed at the Marriott Cyrprus Harbour by Sea World with DM, DD, DB, DF and I. It was a nice relaxing hotel and since we had a 2 bedroom villa it gave everyone space to do their own thing. I do not have any pics of the hotel though (I know Bad Diser, but I will make it up with PS pics).

The first day we just relaxed by the pool, had a Mai Tai with lunch (hey it's vacation right!) and took a quick nap before dinner at DTD. Our dinner at EOS and WP (everyone picked and we ate outside) was wonderful as always. I had my rigatoni bolognese which is fabulous if you have never had it! Then it was back to the hotel for a swim and then bedtime :) Nothing overly exciting happened, just got to enjoy the Florida sunshine with the fam! Oh but I did create a bit of a monster with my mother and the Basin Store in DTD, I think she spent more then I did was trying all the soaps at the sink lol! But it gave me some good ideas for her X-Mas gift thats for sure! I also bought my Tables in Wonderland card, while thinking about our wedding trip, I realized that the DP wasn't really worth it for us since Dave doesn't eat desserts, so we decided to go the TIW route and figured we would save more $$ that way, and it would allow us to get apps and drinks which is nice :)

The next day Dave and I hit up AK in the morning (gotta love the AP's for DFTW!), we did all the fun stuff, EE twice, KRR twice, KS, and dinosaur. We also managed to see King Louie and Baloo and Flick (who I hadn't seen before so I was happy!)

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010026.jpg

Then we headed to Flame Tree BBQ for lunch and had a yummy salad with BBQ chicken on it (and used the TIW card) and I had Key Lime Pie for dessert (Dave had a Bud Light for dessert lol) I had never eaten here before and really enjoyed it, very quick service and very fresh food. And the key lime pie was yummy!

After that it was about time to head back, it was noon and unbearably hot so we decide to call it a day at AK and go for a swim :) This was a good call because I was a bit ill from the sun that day, so a rest and a cool swim was just what I needed to perk up again:goodvibes. On this trip we used the pool all the time, I read 3 books in a week while sitting and walking around in the pool which is rare, but soooooo wonderful to do. I love reading on vacation:goodvibes

So we swam and hung with the family playing rummikub by the pool, took naps and went to Bongo's in DTD for supper. Bongo's is one of my familys faves! It is a Cuban restaurant run by Gloria Estefan and family, but the food is wonderful and very authentic. Since we live in MA not FL it is pretty rare to find awesome Cuban food, and since we are Cuban it is our fave, so Bongos is always a stop for us! Then we were in the gift shop and I found the Bongos Cookbook for sale, so I bought it up for DD for X-Mas (I am one of those weirdo's who does their Christmas shopping in the summer lol) so I did my little happy dance ----> like this:dance3: and hid the bag with the book in my purse so DD wouldn't see it lol!

Up next Day 3, a Disney Day with the family :)

yey! You started your TR!

I'm glad that you've got students enrolled and that things will settle down soon.
I ain't gonna lie, reading a book (or 3!) by the pool sounds like an awesome vacation :thumbsup2
I must admit I have never been to Bongos, I will have to try it sometime since a real Cuban recommends it :)

Ohh I love WGP's too! The cafe on the marketplace side is to die for too!

The keyt lime pie is actually one of those things you can bring to a party and say you just "whipped it up" and you wont be lying... it is so flippin easy and yummy! Let me know how it turns out:goodvibes

Its good to hear that things are going so well at the studio; its always a lot of work when you are first getting into a business but once things get going you get settled into a routine :dance3:

Animal Kingdom is always so hot with all that vegetation; I always whine going there when its hot :rotfl: I've heard lots of great things about Bongos, my dad loves the food there. I'm like you I do Christmas shopping all year and keep a box with gifts in my closet. I think its a great way to find some cool stuff that you might not be able to find near Christmas.

From what I have heard, he is usually hanging out at the AK at Rafiki's planet watch. You have to ride the train over there, btu once you do there are usually a few charcters with no lines :)

He would be cute at a recpetion too, maybe have him and Pinnocchio!

YAY Sam's back again! Glad things are going well at the school and that it sounds like you had an awesome PS trip... can't wait for the rest of the TR!

HI Vanessa! Yea, I am one of those people that needs routine, without it I am a nut lol!

Day 3... TYPHOON LAGOON DAY!!!

My personal favorite water park at WDW btw! SO we woke up nice and early... well I woke up early and had to wake people lol! I am sure they appriciated it in the end :rotfl2:. We packed a full cooler of sandwichs, fruit, drinks and chips and headed to TL. We got there right after 9 when they opened and headed over by the Shark Tank and got ourselves a nice cabana (score for waking up early). After we settled in we decided to take dip with the sharks. Dave, my brother Alexander and I all lined up, got our snorkles and headed to line up for our turn. Well I put the mask over my face and it started to burn a bit... strange but I ignored it... so we went for our swim and it was nice and cool just like MA ocean water lol! I saw lots of fish and the shark was my buddy. It swam underneath me the whole way across... when I stopped, it stopped, when I moved it moved too... very starnge but fun to watch. Well I made it to the opposite end and took off my mask. While waiting for Dave to finish his swim, my face really started to burn. It turned bright red and blotchy!! I was freaking out, so of course I left Dave and ran to my mother lol! Moms always know what to do:lmao:. I didnt want to go to first aid bc I was afraid they would tell me to stay out of the sun or something... hello I was at TL! Soooooo not an option. So I dealt with the burning for the next hour until it went away... I did not swim with the sharks again that day...

Ok, so now on to the non-burnt part of the day aka "the fun part", we went on all the water slides and the water coaster too (soo fun btw). Hung in the wave pool, and rode on the water monorail aka the lazy river for hours! It was so refreshing. Also, we all took at least a 1/2 hour nap at TL at different times. It felt great!

So around 5pm we decide to call it a day and head out. We make it to the giant gift shop and the skys open up and it is pouring rain! Within a minute a voice comes on the loadspeaker saying lighting was close and TL was closed until further notice. Well rememeber we were leaving at this point anyways, so no biggie to us. Well this is the funniest, weirdest thing I have ever seen at WDW... everyone starts running to the parking lot... with towels over their heads! Come on people your at a water park, your already wet, what is the tiny towel gonna do for ya!! It was too funny, we were all cracking up at this. We were all just out of the lazy river anyways so we just walked to the car normally and yes, we were soaked by the time we got there, but we already were, so what difference did it make!

That night we all napped and then Dave took my mom and I to the Premium Outlets for a little shopping! We didnt find a ton of stuff (also idnt have a ton of $$ lol), but I did snag a few X-Mas gifts for Dave from the Disney outlet. A cute Grumpy T for me, and a pair of really nice white slacks from Ann Taylor Loft (I love that store).

When we got back to the hotel we were still too tired to swim again so Dave and I hung at the bar and had some Mai Tai's, Pina Coladas, and Mudslides! And yes, that was our dinner that night lol, hey its vacation right:lmao:!

Up next, Day 4 our PS!! Lots of pics I promise:goodvibes

(I really like the Wet n Wild Disco H20 too... its so funny!)

The burning was probs made a little worse with the salty water at the shark pool, but hopefully it got better!

It sounds like you finished TL off right, nothing better than to end your day with drinks after a day in the pool!!!

Canít believe youíre less than 6 months away!!!

Ummm... Mudslides and Mai Tai's for dinner?? I'm going to go back and look at that family tree.... we have to be related :lmao::lmao:

Would you believe I've never been to TL? We live close to the "Water Park Capitol of the World" (yes, why the largest concentration of waterparks in the world is in the middle of Wisconsin where they can't be used 9 months out of the year is beyond me...) so we go to water parks all the time for "weekend-cations" (yes I made that word up), so I never want to go to one on a real vacation... but it sounds so nice and relaxing.

I've had that reaction to the chemicals they use to clean the masks before. I'm not sure what it is... but some guy in the caribbean told me to use a palm leaf instead, and it works wonders.

08-26-2009, 01:47 PM
Hey just got up on the trip. First let me say as I worked there for 4 years and am now a seasonal worker for TL im sorry for the burning of the mask. they cleaning the mask in solution for 10 mins and rinse with water for 2 mins. its keeps them clean but cant promise all the solution with be removed, plus the salt water can irritate it as well. so for next time if you feel burning just rinse the mask in cold water and then rinse your face. it should go away. and dont ever ever be afraid to go to first aid, they are RN's. its free and they wont ever tell you to stay out of the sun. unless your burnt like a lobster then they say get some sun screen and try some shade for a while. hee hee
But what you said about everyone running for the parking lot in the rain just brought back some FUNNY memories! we all would say the same thing too, your at a water park and your already wet. :rotfl2:

but glad you had fun!!! looking forward to your planning session!!!:surfweb:

Hey Sam,

I've been reading your PJ when I can, but clearly never commented before (or else I would've subscribed)--Shame on Me! Unfortunately for me I was sent home from work today w/ the flu and am out for 7 days...Fortunate for DIS reading-- I was able to get caught up w/ all your recent happenings!! :woohoo:Yea!!

Sounds like you have a Beautiful wedding on its way! And CONGRATS on the STUDIO from one dancer to another!!! That's an absolutely wonderful opportunity, but definitely a lot of work. I'm sure you'll be AWESOME! :goodvibes
oh and GO SOX! :cheer2:

haha thanks, I swear I am only coodinated inside a dance studio! Outside in the real world I trip over air on a regular basis lol!

This is SOOO true. It's a dancer thing. My husband calls me the most coordinated klutz he's ever met (b/w tripping over my own feet, spilling things, knocking things over, you get the picture). :lmao: He still doesn't understand how I could be so coordinated when I was in the studio/performed/ was a professional. I say- It's a balance-- Extra coordinated in one "world" & completely lacking in the other aka the "real" world. :cutie:

Haha Sam it sounds like you had a really fun time. I can't wait to read about the PS! First off, I :lovestruc Rummikub. My grandmother (Oma) always had it, and we play all the time, especially when she comes over, and definitely by the pool! :) Secondly I totally agree about people being silly in the parking lot and the rain. My favorite is when you go to the gym and see people drive around the lot trying to get a closer spot. Hello!! You're going to the gym to workout and burn calories. Walk a little! :rotfl:

I'm glad the studio is coming along. That must be so awesome. And yes, it is totally acceptable, and a requirement, to have alcoholic beverages as a meal while on vacation.

PS Anyone else notice that all the characters have the same foot position in the pictures (with one foot pointed?)

Hello Sam,

sorry to but in your TR but I have done it I have booked an engagment photo shoot at Epcot I just wondered where did you meet your photographer as I can not see it on her map

But I am so excited about it thank you so much for the information on it I havent told Dave though I am thinking of keeping it a secret but I am terrible at secrets lol


Leanne x x x

You are allowed to but in anytime Leanne! I am so excited your doing E-Pics in Epcot, they really were awesome to do. We met our photographer at the International Gateway in the WS between France and the UK. You can get there by walking through the BW, BC or YC hotel area. Also, we just walked in the front and told them where we needed to be and they let us right in, so no worries if you cant find it or get there in time, just go in and tell the CM at Guest relations what is happening and where you need to get to :)

I am terrible at secrets too, but Jenny kept her honeymoon shoot a secret so it can happen! Keep me posted Leanne:goodvibes

Yay sam, I'm all caught up on your TR. It seems like you had a great trip so far! I love TL also! I have never tried Bongos either, and now it is on my to do list! Can't wait to read more!!!!:goodvibes

I am ready to read your too Stacey!! Yes, Bongos is super yummy, try it for sure:goodvibes

Wow I've missed a lot! The trip sounds great so far, can't wait to read the rest! So cute that the shark was your exit buddy!!!!

haha he was an exit buddy lol! I wonder if maybe he liked the shadow I was casting on the bottom of the tank... or he just liked my bathing suit lol!

Sam! Welcome back! Just catching up on everything and I am loving your pictures from AK! Makes me that much more excited to be going there in a few weeks! Glad to hear things are going well with the studio!

You must be getting so excited Heather 3 weeks!!!! Thanks so much, you uys will have a blast!

Hey just got up on the trip. First let me say as I worked there for 4 years and am now a seasonal worker for TL im sorry for the burning of the mask. they cleaning the mask in solution for 10 mins and rinse with water for 2 mins. its keeps them clean but cant promise all the solution with be removed, plus the salt water can irritate it as well. so for next time if you feel burning just rinse the mask in cold water and then rinse your face. it should go away. and dont ever ever be afraid to go to first aid, they are RN's. its free and they wont ever tell you to stay out of the sun. unless your burnt like a lobster then they say get some sun screen and try some shade for a while. hee hee
But what you said about everyone running for the parking lot in the rain just brought back some FUNNY memories! we all would say the same thing too, your at a water park and your already wet.

but glad you had fun!!! looking forward to your planning session!!!:surfweb:

Glad you can relate, it is very weird to see. It was like the water would somehow make you melt like in the Wizard of Oz :lmao: And if I ever have face burn again I promise I will see the RN at Disney:goodvibes

i want to go to the premium outlets!! Seriously! Were going to the woodbury next weekend and i cant wait!

and the face mask burning must have stunk. It could have been an allergic reaction...but still- next time dont get embarassed okay? It could have been worse :(:hug:

The outlets are alot of fun, hit or miss though. We have a few outlet malls by us... but no WDW outlet:sad1:

I just saw your Epcot e-pics posted on another thread...they are so gorgeous! Now I am going to have to read all 80 pages of your PJ!!!:goodvibes

haha thanks :goodvibes and welcome!

Hey Sam,

I've been reading your PJ when I can, but clearly never commented before (or else I would've subscribed)--Shame on Me! Unfortunately for me I was sent home from work today w/ the flu and am out for 7 days...Fortunate for DIS reading-- I was able to get caught up w/ all your recent happenings!! :woohoo:Yea!!

Sounds like you have a Beautiful wedding on its way! And CONGRATS on the STUDIO from one dancer to another!!! That's an absolutely wonderful opportunity, but definitely a lot of work. I'm sure you'll be AWESOME! :goodvibes
oh and GO SOX! :cheer2:

This is SOOO true. It's a dancer thing. My husband calls me the most coordinated klutz he's ever met (b/w tripping over my own feet, spilling things, knocking things over, you get the picture). :lmao: He still doesn't understand how I could be so coordinated when I was in the studio/performed/ was a professional. I say- It's a balance-- Extra coordinated in one "world" & completely lacking in the other aka the "real" world. :cutie:

Ok a fellow clumsy dancer who loves the Sox! We could be sisters lol! Last night I went to a bachalorette party for my BM Kim who is getting married and she had us all take a pole dancing class... I was fine learning the steps, but making them not so ballet-y was weird. I felt like I was cheating on my art lol! Then leaving the studio I fell on the pavement bbc I missed a step... dancers are not graceful in the real world at all:lmao: (Oh and everyone laughed at me when I asked the instructor if shoes were allowed in the studio:lmao:)

I actually pointed out your cake to DF at our PS, and he remembered it bc I have made him watch the WE special like 5 times lol! Hope your feeling better soon, I was out for a week with the flu in March and it turned into pneumonia so take cafe and rest up:sick:

Haha Sam it sounds like you had a really fun time. I can't wait to read about the PS! First off, I Rummikub. My grandmother (Oma) always had it, and we play all the time, especially when she comes over, and definitely by the pool! Secondly I totally agree about people being silly in the parking lot and the rain. My favorite is when you go to the gym and see people drive around the lot trying to get a closer spot. Hello!! You're going to the gym to workout and burn calories. Walk a little!

I'm glad the studio is coming along. That must be so awesome. And yes, it is totally acceptable, and a requirement, to have alcoholic beverages as a meal while on vacation.

PS Anyone else notice that all the characters have the same foot position in the pictures (with one foot pointed?)

haha thats exactly the same lol! People are so werd sometimes lol! hmmm now that you mention it, that is strange. My guess is that most characters are female anyways so maybe they just stand ike that out of comfort??? Any CM's out there know?

I got Dave addicted to Rummikub a few years ago and now he is always asking to play:goodvibes

Day 4, The Loooooooooong awaited planning session!

So of course true to form, I was awake and super chipper by 7am and ready to leave by 8! Come on, I had been waiting for this planning session for a while now, of course I was excited! We arrived at the GF and drove over to Francs, parked our lovely Dodge Chager and showed my DB the way to the pool at the GF (he was soooo not into the planning part of the day, he did join in for the menu tasting though). Now Dave hadn't seen the WP up close or inside and since there was a rehersal listed on the WP events board for 10am that day we decied to try and sneak a peek. Well it was wide open so we went in and Dave was totally pysched for our (my) choice in ceremony locations.

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010027.jpg

The Poly, our fave resort! Cannot wait to stay there!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010030.jpg

Dave and my dad even took a stroll down the aisle... which they were not too thrilled that I caught on film lol!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010031.jpg

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010036.jpg

After that we were let into Francs by Marion our WP, all I have to say is if any of you DisBrides get Marion, you are lucky! She is fantastic and really gives you her honest opinion about things. If we suggested something she would tell us how it would fit into the day and if she didnt think it would fit, rather then just saying "no" she would explain her reasoning and offer alternatives. It was a wonderful planning session.

Here are the folks listening intently...

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010037.jpg

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010040.jpg

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010042.jpg

...Then they got annoyed by my picture taking so I cooled it down for a bit lol!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010043.jpg

We started by going overour planning checklists and seeing what we had and hadn't done yet. I loved this because it was nice to see where we were planning wise and budget the next 5 months of time. We went through all the transportation options, rehersal dinner options, and day of choices. Man oh man are there a lot of choices! We still haven't seen our BEO yet but as of now we have made a few choices that we really want to happen, and a few we are not too sure of. So we will see when things come back from DFTW.

After we went over the logistics with Marion we had our cake tasting! I was sooooo looking forward to this as I am a huge cake fan! We had 4 cake flavors and 9 fillings. Since my dad is allergic to nuts we had to be a bit careful with the cake stuff. Here is the pic of our options!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010045.jpg

And we decided on... drum roll please... 3 kinds lol!

We are going to have the 3 tier 50 person Mickeys Wave Cake with silver Mickeys on it, and a sheet cake in the kitchen. with the number of people we have we would have needed a 5-6 tier cake which is wayyyyy bigger then we need, especially since Dave doesnt even eat cake! So we decided on Yellow cake with Tropical Mousse (my fave, it is sooooo good), red velvet cake with buttercream, and marble cake with Baileys Mousse. I am so excited for the cake it was so yummy at the tasting!

I will leave you all there for now as I have to go meet my mom, but I will update more later with the rest of the PS report:goodvibes

Sounds like you had a great time at your planning session. Kind of makes me jealous as we never had one. We did our sessions over the phone which was fine, we decided to add anything that we thought sounded good and then remove it later. When you see your BEO you will have a much better understanding of what things cost and what you can cut. Can't wait for further updates.

Thanks Sam! I'm feeling much better today! Yea! The pole dancing class sounds like so much fun. I've never done one (too chicken) & basically I can imagine myself saying to the instructor, "Oh what if we just took this pole and attached it to the wall rather than the ceiling so I can do some plies!" :rotfl: You poor thing for falling while leavng..once again something I would do..ok have done. :rotfl2:

So glad you saw the cake...I'm dying to know what they're charging for it! ;)

It's SOOO good you have a good relationship w/ your planner! It makes such a difference as the wedding draws near. My planner was really good about explaining things too & giving his honest opinion of what's worth it and what's not based on our objectives. Sounds like you're in good hands! :goodvibes

My brother has a nut allergy as well so it's always a little more complicated, but Disney is SOOO good about it. (and we instantly rejected the almond cake & amaretto mousse as I'm sure you did! )

Your cake sounds Delish! We had red velvet for our middle tier as well...we ate it at our farewell brunch-- it was YUM! And the Bailey's!! I LOVED the Bailey's at our PS (in the end we didn't go w/ it though...oh well) What flavor are you doing for the sheet cake??

That's too cute about Dave heading to the pool. I bet Kris would have loved that option if I would have let him :rotfl: I have a picture of him holding his head in Franc's being super over dramatic about the long day~ lol.

Marion is fantastic!!!! She was our planner too and the best thing about her is that she is honest and straightforward. She helped us stay on budget and gave her real opinion on the pros and cons of things. Having her as our planner was amazing and I know you won't be disappointed either! :bride:

The cake choices sound delicious and I can't wait to read more :surfweb:

You guys are absolutely hilarious. I read this (and only this one) in about three days and finally finished it this morning.

Also, the new dress is gorgeous, the favors are awesome, and you are one very crafty lady! I'm going to be subscribing to this so I can keep up with your plans, I hope you don't mind :goodvibes: I hope the rest of the planning goes smoothly!

yummm caaaakkkeee.

We chose red velvet with buttercream too! We were at a BBQ place yesterday and they had red velvet cake by the slice on display and I just kept thinking of the cake tasting ::drool::

I love red velvet, its so tough to find up north... guess I'll just have to come back to FL lol!

Thanks Sam! I'm feeling much better today! Yea! The pole dancing class sounds like so much fun. I've never done one (too chicken) & basically I can imagine myself saying to the instructor, "Oh what if we just took this pole and attached it to the wall rather than the ceiling so I can do some plies!" :rotfl: You poor thing for falling while leavng..once again something I would do..ok have done. :rotfl2:

haha, I was a bit lost in the class, but it was fun anyways. I was ready for some nice pliesby the end though :rotfl:

So glad you saw the cake...I'm dying to know what they're charging for it! ;)

I bet it's really popular now since it looks amazing in the display area!

It's SOOO good you have a good relationship w/ your planner! It makes such a difference as the wedding draws near. My planner was really good about explaining things too & giving his honest opinion of what's worth it and what's not based on our objectives. Sounds like you're in good hands! :goodvibes

I am so in love with our planner, she was so awesome to work with, and she really seems to know how to calm peoples nerves and keep things on track, which I am positive will come in handy lol!

My brother has a nut allergy as well so it's always a little more complicated, but Disney is SOOO good about it. (and we instantly rejected the almond cake & amaretto mousse as I'm sure you did! )

Yea, we didnt even try those flavors, I mentioned the allergy to my WP's assistant and she made sure they were not offered whic was nice. My dad and I loved the tropical mousse though so he was happy and didnt feel "left out".

Your cake sounds Delish! We had red velvet for our middle tier as well...we ate it at our farewell brunch-- it was YUM! And the Bailey's!! I LOVED the Bailey's at our PS (in the end we didn't go w/ it though...oh well) What flavor are you doing for the sheet cake??

I have been craving our cakes for the past 2 months now lol! I wish WDWcould ship them here for my b-day next week!

That's too cute about Dave heading to the pool. I bet Kris would have loved that option if I would have let him :rotfl: I have a picture of him holding his head in Franc's being super over dramatic about the long day~ lol.

Marion is fantastic!!!! She was our planner too and the best thing about her is that she is honest and straightforward. She helped us stay on budget and gave her real opinion on the pros and cons of things. Having her as our planner was amazing and I know you won't be disappointed either! :bride:

The cake choices sound delicious and I can't wait to read more :surfweb:

Actually it was y brother who went to the pool, I made Dave stay with me... but Laura taught him the handy phrase "I have no preference on that" instead of saying "I don't care, you pick" lol!!! Marion was fantastic, she made us feel so comortable and really knows how to keep us all in line (which is key with my crazy fam lol!)

Hey Sam, everything sounds great and the cake sounds yummy. We also had a layer with the tropical mouse - it was the best. Looking forward to more planning.

Linda

I didnt know you had it too, it seems like a floavor people eithier love or hate, I thought it was absolutly amazing! So unique and tasty!

That cake looks sooo yummy. And it must be a Sam thing, I love tropical flavors. I can't wait for the tropical mousse!

Oh it is a Sam thing, you will love it. Its like mango, pineapple and heaven all mixed up!

Sam your cake sounds delicious. I might have to crash just for a piece! Yumm...

I love that you keep taking pictures of stuff, very funny. It sounds like spending a day with Ryan's family. It takes forever to get somewhere because we have to stop every foot for a picture...

Crash away! haha oh yea, I am a bit of a picture nut, but I was very good in the parks during this trip, Dave and I agreed to relax on the pics and just enjoy (man was that hard for me to do btw!)

yummm cake! now im hungry and lunch is not a few more hours! so not fair. hee hee

I know cake is addicting! I want some more now lol!

sam-i miss u!!! i am sure you have been busy with the dance studio but wanted to drop by and say hi! hope all is well!

Yup, you guessed it, I have totally underestimated the amount of time and energy in running a studio. It is very rewarding and I love it, but the first month has run me ragged. Also, I was a BM in one of my BM's weddings last week, so I feel like I havent stopped for a minute all month. I am now in a nice managable schedule so hopefully I can update regularly now (fingers crossed)

Ok ladies and gents, after almost a whole month away (GASP!!!!!) I am learning how to manage the studio, my fiance, and most importantly my time. For the last month I feel like I havent stopped at all, I have been insanly crazy busy with studio stuff.

Here is a quick update of a few things that I have been working on:

I booked my dance company dancers a performance at the pre-game of the Boston Celtics game in January... 2 weeks before the wedding.... yup I'm officially insane lol!

I painted the studio, bought new equipment and best of all successfully enrolled 110 students! I still have a few small classes I need to fill, but the area that the studio is in has lots of kids that play soccer until the end of Oct, and the old owner said once soccer ends I should get more students which is great!

One of my BM's got married last week and I was a BM, it was a fun wedding but crazy busy leading up to it. I had lots of things to get ready for and do. I am really glad Dave and I dont have to go to any more weddings until our own lol! :goodvibes

Now onto wedding planning:

My wedding dress is on the cover of Modern Bride this month! I think it's pretty cool that it's on the cover of MB during my birthday month.. must be a good sign right!

I am working on invited and will post a pic once they are done, but our WP's assist. said they should go out for a destination wedding about 3-4 montsh before the event.

My shower is Sunday Nov 15th, no surprises (I am not a huge surprise fan lol), but my mom and MOH's will not tell me anything about the shower besides that it is on 11/15! I am so antsy to find out the details lol! (See why I am not good at surprises lol)

I am patiently waiting for my first BEO... ok... I'm not waiting patiently lol... good thing I other things to keep me busy:rotfl:

I am starting to figure out some ideas for the wedding itself, and will def be askign for opinions in the next few weeks from you lovely ladies and gents!

Now back to the TR!!!!

Ok, we just finished up our PS and had a bit of downtime until our menu tasting. So what else do we do but pose for pics outside of Francs lol!

This is how my folks felt after the PS lol!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010051.jpg

Totally broke lol! They are quiet the charcters lol!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010052.jpg

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010053.jpg

Then we headed off the the GF to find my brother Alexander. He was at the pool... and bit shocked. He went to the bar and ordered a water... then was charged $6.50! He had no clue what else to do so he paid it. He bought Evian lol!!!!! I couldnt stop laughing! Guys huh!

Next we went to Basin White (of course) in the GF and then packed into the car and went to the BW for the tasting. When we got there we saw this...

And then tried for about 10 mins to take a picture of it with us lol! It kept flashing different events for the day so it was tough work:lmao: So after that, since we still had an hour before food time, I wanted to show my folks the BW area since they had never been. We started walking and the sky turned black... I mean totally black... and it started pouring rain! We were stuck under the awning for the ADH and were peeking in, and a guy came over an said it wasnt open yet. We said we knew we were just peeking since we were getting married there and my folks hadnt seen it yet... well whaddayknow he let is in to look around!

My parents loved it and were so happy we choose a fun location! Then we went back out to wait and a security officer came by and she offered to drive me to the BW and let them know we were runnign late. So I hoped in the golf cart and off we went, she was so nice and said she hates seeing people stuck in the rain.:goodvibes Gotta love the disney magic!

Once we all finally got to the BWCC (a bit wetter and later then expected) we met William our waiter for the day, and Joe the executive chef and the other chef (I cannot remeber her name right now) and of course Marion (aka Wonder Woman). We headed into Marvin Gardens and saw our table all set up fancy-like and pretty! Each place setting had a different napkin fold at it and we were told to pick one. Well we only saw 7/8 folds because my brother came in, sat down, and put the napkin on his lap lol! We kept teasing him about being too anxious to eat the rest of the trip lol! We ended up choosing the tuxedo fold

Then came the food, William would bring out a dish, explain it, and eithier plate it for us, or serve us. I felt like royalty! The only thing that was a bit strange was having Marion and our chefs not eating... they just watched us east and took notes. We had so much food though I felt badly that they couldnt join us! I did ask a few times if they wanted to eat though... maybe its a DFTW policy to not eat with the bride/groom :confused3.

First up we tried the 2 apps, a meatball wrapped in blu cheese and bacon, and a wonton cup filled with chicken, mangos and plantains. I loved both of these the meat was salty and the wonton was sweet so they complimented each other very well! Unfortunatly we didnt take pics of these because we were so hungry I forgot:rotfl2:

Here is the yummy applewood bacon smoked pasta salad for the rehersal dinner:

So yummy, Dave loves pasta salad so he was pysched!

Next up was the mixed salad with dried cranberries and sunflower seeds, I liked it alot and the cranberries gave it a very New England touch:goodvibes

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010065.jpg

and the low-fat zinfendel dressing and low-fat ranch dressing, both yummy too!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010066.jpg

Next was the main course, on the left was pork tenderloin, the middle was horseradish crusted prime rib with a sweet onion demi-galze, and on the right was a 2 pepper rubbed prime rib with a merlot demi-glaze. Garlic Mashed potatoes and olive oil rubbed fresh veggies.

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010067.jpg

We loved both the meats and are going to have them both at a carving station with both demi-glazes on the side. And I asked for applesauce with the pork (Marion laughed and said that how she likes pork too lol), the chefs got all "chefy" and started talking about making some apple-brandy-chutney for it, when I spoke up and said that just plain old Mott's applesauce was better... At least Marion agreed lol!

The potatoes were incredible, so creamy and not too garlicky but so yummy!
The veggies were really good too, not mushy, still crisp and very flavorful!

Then came dessert, we were trying mini creme brulees and mini key lime pie tarts... I was so caught up and happy to see them that I forgot to take any pics until I was almost done... so sorry about the 1/2 eaten pic lol!

http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j175/tiggersam00/P1010070.jpg

Oh and I almost forgot, since my DF is bizare and doesnt eat sweets he is not eating wedding cake. So I will be feeding him a wedding sandwich! At the beginning of the tasting session the chef asked if he likes turkey, ham or roast beef... he said "Yes"... we all laughed... but then they made him and awesome sandwich with all 3 meats, cheeses and mayo! He was in heaven!

Here is his sandwich, and then me feeding it too him for practice... it was so big I needed 2 hands!

I'm glad things are getting settled into a routine at the studio; how exciting about booking the dance appearance at the game :dance3:

Love the shot of your parents outside Franck's, I think we can all relate to that feeling with Disney :rotfl: The food is making me very hungry; the pasta and the meat looking especially yummy.

When I saw the tart I thought you were going to say that you were going to use that to feed Dave since I remembered you mentioning that he didn't like cake before. How wrong I was :rotfl2: I wasn't sure how serious you were about the sandwich, but I thought it looked super cute in the photos and extra yummy! So, I must know where did the sandwich idea come from compared to some other dessert? There has to be a story in there somewhere :goodvibes

Ahhh the broke DFTW feeling lol! I think I will be feeling that fo a few more months lol! Oh well!

Ok, sandwich story. One day while talking about the wedding we got to the topic of cakes. My mother said Dave should just eat a bite for pics and such, I said I wouldnt force him if he doesnt want to eat it. So I asked him "what if you could eat your favorite food instead of cake?" So he asked if he could have a sandwich. We all laughed about it, but somewhere down the line it got funnier the more we thought about it, so I finally said "Why not!" and thus a wedding sandwich was born!

There was also some discussion with Linda and her DH Sheldon about a meatloaf/mashed potato cake lol!

Hey! We are just beginning to plan our Disney wedding. We are having an escape collection wedding. My sister made the initial call to one of disney's wedding specialists and they said they'd return the call in one to two business days. I am wondering if you can help me and let me know how long it takes to secure a date with them? We are trying for June 2010. Also, give me the lowdown on all the abbreviations (ex. what does DF mean and PS...)

Thanks!! I love your dress and all the details..you have given me SOO many ideas.

P.S. I'm originally from MA, displaced in NY right now (UGHH). I love the SOX AND PATS WOOT:yay:
