Beauty and the Beach ~ Deluxe Edition

Here we are!! I FINALLY figured out a title (thanks to DizneyDawn!) and got this PTR going!!
If you followed my TR from Dec. 2009, you know who we are.

But for those who don't,
I am Sheree, the uber planner in the family. I used to think I was organized, but then I had kids. I had only been to Disneyland twice as a kid (once at 2 and once at 15) until after I married DH. He brought me to WDW with his family in 1999 and I've been back 6 times since!! Little did he know on that first trip how hooked I'd be!! By day I work as a judicial law clerk (attorney for a judge) and by night, I'm super mom! Okay, just kidding. I am a mom to two beautiful girls and a cute dog. I enjoy scrapbooking, reading, watching sports (Hockey, Baseball and Figure Skating) and all things Disney!!

My DH is, however, super dad!! He spent part of his childhood living in FL, so he was there more often. He works two jobs, and
makes fun of my Disney obsession, but is usually the driving force behind our trips! He loves cars, football and his wife and daughters!!

DD9 ~ Sarah ~ she is my mini-me. She looks just like I did as a kid. She is in 3rd grade, smart as a whip, loves gymnastics, dancing, and she plays softball. She is growing up so fast, I have to keep taking her to WDW to keep her young!! I think her favorite character is Tinkerbell.

DD7 ~ Paige ~ A little spitfire!! She is in 1st grade and loves reading! She's in her third year of dance, also does gymnastics and always has a funny response. Sometimes she doesn't even realize she's so funny! She has always loved Belle (which I think is cool because Belle is a big reader!).

So that's us! This trip came to be last December. We were at the Bay Lake Tower from December 6 - 10 before going on a 3 day Disney Cruise with DH's family. We decided to take the bounceback offer in our room for 40% off Deluxe!!!
We had been invited by my SIL to join them for a week at their timeshare at Cocoa Beach in August 2010. We have a hard time going to FL and not adding a stop at Mickey's place, so we booked for a few days before our scheduled beach trip.
For more details, you can check out my TR in my siggie.

I felt the need to start this PTR TODAY because we are at 100 days out!! We can double digit dance tomorrow!!!

Here's the basics:
The four of us (no extended family with us at WDW!)
4 nights at the Beach Club (Std. room)
July 28 - August 1
Right now we have DDP and 3 day park hopper tickets. But of course, we're planning some changes to that!
I've got my ADRs and will share them with you all soon.
Flights are booked (YAY! No Driving!)

We're planning to rent a car at WDW and drive to the beach after our stay at the Beach Club.

Details will be coming...stay tuned!!!

Yes Shawna i'm in a group on the boards and it's great. Just slowly working toward a 15-20 lb loss. We have a thread over on W.I.S.H. I think there's a link in dizneydawn's sig. When you have a 5 lb loss she sends the palm tree.
Wigd - really hoping to meet Teena! I've read a lot from and about her on the yc/bc threads.

Thanks Shawna! I have been drinking a lot more water. I don't drink much soda anyway. But just adding water and watching food intake, trying to eat healthier. It's going okay so far. I have pretty low expectations and am not trying to change everything at once. I'll keep you updated. My boss told me the other day to go buy new pants because mine looked too big! I was thrilled!!!

We're a long way from summer despite the gorgeous weather! Our school ends on June 10. Paige is already in summer wardrobe mode. She hates socks and would go barefoot everywhere if I let her!
We have gymnastics and dance until about that time too.

Thanks, it was fun. Hopefully you'll get to MOA and we can meet too! It's only 20 minutes from my house. I watched a bit of the Pixar Story. pretty cool.

I am going to go with the large VB backpack this year...hopefully it will help distribute the weight!
Thanks for the info. I'm still debating!! Wish I could get one for $30. Then I'd get one for sure. If I do, I'll remember not to make it too heavy!

to the DIS and to the PTR! You're never too late around here.

I have found a plastic bin and started to pile stuff in it today. So far all that's in there are the fans, my journal, a notebook Sarah wants to use for a journal and the Hidden Mickey's book. It's about all I could do today. I have this crappy sinus headache and scratchy throat. I even took a nap! That's something I haven't done since, well the last time I was sick probably! DH and the girls were at the beach for a couple hours, but then storms moved in. It's been raining most of the afternoon. Would have been a great day to go see TS3, but I wouldn't have enjoyed it with my headache. We are going for sure before our trip!!

Hope your headache goes away soon and you feel better!

I have been filling a plastic bin today, too. I didn't get much farther than you.
