It's an Essenza Home Fragrance Candle (vanilla bean) and I got it at Costco in a package of 4 Essenza candles with different scents. Of course this one is my favorite. You know that smell they pump out of Gibson Girl as you walk by? That's how this candle smells......and I mean exactly the same. My hubby and I were just talking about how much it smells like the icecream shop on Main Street just a few days ago. It's a little piece of Disney that I can enjoy when I'm not in the parks. It does tend to make me crave icecream though.

Yeah, and I know where I'd put the bullseye.

He is the bestest ever, and he's just so humble about it too.

I can't believe that between the time I checked this morning and now that y'all have not only started a new thread, but that you are also 6 days in already!

Hope that it's been a good day!

No truer words have been spoken!

I just find it so funny that of all the CM plaids at DL, we seem to run into him (waiting or looking for "his" bigwig) everytime we are in the parks!

And yes Capri, Bree is tan, she started at the tanning booth to prepare for Palm Springs over Spring Break and now gets sun whenever she can to keep the glow. And yes, I have lectured her about sun damage, but I did it too up until about 5 years ago, so I know how it is. And TWINS? Of course we are, except the thirty pound & twenty five year age difference!

I was thinking that a group of us Washingtonians, plus our Canuck friend, should all meet up at Wild Waves/Enchanted Village. They have good deals all the time (but we have Annual Passes), so it wouldn't be too bad, or you can get group pricing with 12 tickets or more, ordered 2 weeks in advance for $20 each. What do you all think of that idea? We love to spend the day there, and it is pretty good for a wide range of ages, and hey, they have a beer garden too!
Don't forget about us Oregonians! I'm up for it, or down for it, or dialed in, whatever.

And if they time it right, they can have it at Disney! What happens if you go into labor in the parks?

Fresh and Easy is a chain store that is owned by a big English grocery company. They came into soCal (and maybe some other areas) a couple of years ago hoping to become the "next big thing." so far, they haven't been. I have one up the street and have never been in it. I guess I should go and check it out.

No silly--it wouldn't be meat because Beth doesn't like to handle raw meat! Only cooked meat--and that wouldn't go with ice cream!

I seriously want ice cream now. And cupcakes.

We should drag Laurie and Beth to Gibson Girl and MAKE them stand and line and get ice cream.
I think we should make them stand in line and order for "ALL" of us while we stand back and giggle.

I know someone on the previous thread (I tried to find the post ) had asked what this "Tech. Sgt. Stephanie Brennan, 412th Logistics Test Squadron F-22 Raptor logistics test and evaluation noncommissioned officer in charge" means? So here goes my rank is Technical (Tech for short) Sergeant. I am assigned to the 412th Logistics Test Squadron. This squadron looks at the latest in aircraft systems while in a developmental stage. We get to see the systems before the rest of the Air Force by doing so we're able to fix any problems that we find before the systems are released to the Air Force as a whole. Specifially I work with the F-22 aircraft also known as Raptor. Logistics test and evaluation is the testing, documenting and evaluating the new systems. Noncommisioned officer in charge is that I'm the 'boss' of the enlisted members within my section. By the way I don't like the term boss but it's better than 'in charge'. I hope that makes sense and I didn't confuse anyone further.
Steph: that makes more sense, but now I have more questions if you have time and are allowed to answer. some of these are things I've always wanted to know (I know--I'm weird).

What is noncommissioned versus enlisted?

Do you have engineering training to do your job? Or do you oversee engineers? I've recently become more interested because my BFF is a pilot and she and her boyfriend have recently started an aviation fastener company. Not that I will ever fly in a small plane. No way--no how.

I would say its more like a Trader Joe's. They sell very few other brands, and sell their own brand as well. They concentrate on fresh foods. They also have a lot of ready to go things that are really yummy. I find them to be really cheap with certain things. Stay away from the dessert case. You can go broke there.

LIKE I SAID--HAVE NEVER BEEN THERE, BUT DON'T THEY ALSO SELL A LOT OF PRE-PREPARED MEALS AND SUCH? THE IDEA BEING YOU CAN STOP BY AND PICK UP DINNER ON THE WAY HOME AND JUST HEAT IT UP?

Come on June, hurry up.

AGREED.

My local Fresh and Easy used to do all the bagging for us until recently. But they still do most of the bagging for me.


WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED?

Actually, I'd totally take everyone's order and money, and happily wait in line just for the fun of seeing the person's reaction when I order like 20 sundaes.

How's your face feeling? I hope you're doing better. Looks like you all had a great time.

Noncommissioned is enlisted, I'm just the one in charge (see there's the word I don't like ) of the rest of the enlisted. The main reason is that I outrank them, the secondary reason is that I have the most experience (of the enlisted members) in this job.

I don't have engineering training but I have been trained on avionics systems for multiple aircraft. I have worked flight controls, navigation, communication, Radar, etc. In my current job I do work with engineers. As funny as it sounds, engineers (stereotypically speaking now) tend to see their part of the aircraft (ie what they've designed, work one, etc). When I work with them it's my one of office's jobs to explain how the systems integrate and don't just operate alone.

Now that I've bored you all to tears; I'll tell you that I hate to fly.... The worst thing is when they tell me that my plane is being delayed to maintenance. I just want them to say the plane is delayed...I do not want to know it's maintenance.


Oh and is it February yet!!!!! I'm ready to go....

According to my DD-almost 14, the baby gets a lifetime pass to DL. But I think someone else on here said that was just a rumor. But she is bound and determined to do it, just to make sure!

I did see that, and at first I thought, "Why is Cheryl sneering? She doesn't look very happy!" But then I remembered.

Of course I remembered. So I am just waiting for someone to take one for the team and then we can do the fun "pools" and such. Come on, you know you want to do a DIVA baby shower.

And I was wondering about your lip. Thought the pic taker caught you in a speaking moment or something.

Well, if she ever gets to that point, give me a call. I'm just up the street and want to be there when that happens.

Poor Cheryl and her lip. I felt so bad for her. But she is a trooper and didn't complain.

I am hoping Donna posts a pic from the Hearthstone. And a big thank you to her for my gift...it was a split of Rosa Regale, so sweet of her. Thanks again, Donna

So, who's having the baby? Katie already had a turn and some of us are too old.
