Oh geez, I missed toenail flicking last year? Gross. Please tell me that wasn't from THIS group of Divas.

I'm getting so excited for this trip. I can't wait to meet all of you pretty ladies.

Bridgette (BB Bear! ) and I had a great time at dinner. She is such a doll. I can't wait til we hang out again. She's feeling a bit better and I told her all the well wishes everyone sent her. She's been so busy with school and being sick. Poor thing.

I had 1 drink at dinner, and geez, I'm wiped out! I'm going to get ready for bed and go ready Harry Potter.

Love you Divas!

Or we could do a breakfast at Ariels too, right? That might be fun with all the princesses, although probably kind of expensive, right?

Heck, we could all have a great time having breakfast anywhere while considering tighter budgets. We could even meet up at Mimi's or even McDonalds if we want to, as long as we're together.

Love you Divas!

So glad you had a nice time with Bridgette.
We really enjoyed meeting her and hanging out for several hours on her birthday last month. She fits right in with us. Enjoy your reading Miss Courtney!

Yes, I agree with everything you said.

Bridgette - is your internet fixed yet? I miss you on the boards, girl!

Have we heard from Katie&MattsMom? (I'm so sorry I forgot her real name). I hope she is ok after her surgery.

This all sounds lovely!

I am 100% doing PFF again, followed by a group ride on IASW. Think Friday morning will work again?



Oh, and I am cracking up over some of the comments. That's all I'm saying.
Amy, maybe give Ariel's another shot with a different group.

House of Blues

I called today to get the info.

The gospel brunch is Sunday at 10 and 12:30. It's $38 per person which includes tax and tip. The menu is awesome and can be found here: http://www.houseofblues.com/venues/c...spelbrunch.php


They have tables that will fit a group of 14. If we need more than that, you have to go through their events planner, but it can be done.
The only potential problem I see is when you call to reserve it, you are reserving an assigned seat at a table. So the entire group needs to be booked at once.

Meaning, if we called in and made our reservations separately, we would not be guaranteed to sit near each other. It's just like booking show tickets, since you are reserving assigned seats, you want to book them all at once she said.

You have to pay at the time of booking which means one person would have to put the entire reservation of how ever many want to go x $38 on their credit card. Ummmm, not sure who here could do that. I know I cannot afford to.

Anyway, just wanted to pass along the info I gathered today. It sounds nice. Just not sure how we'd make the reservation.........

Speaking of, the pizza party was one of my favorite things of the whole weekend (as was the tiara wearing, girl bonding experience at PFF). I simply cannot wait to see what the Diva planning committee has up their sleeves for us this year!
I was lucky enough to sit at the same table as the toenail flicker. Thanks for the warning, friends!!!
Anyway, Linda, I was sitting there when your sweet girl was chatting her up. I thought to myself that she was such a nice, genuine person. I was meaning to tell you, but never got the chance. Job well done, mom!

A few of us had breakfast at Riverbelle Terrace on the last trip. They have one of my favorite breakfasts, andat about $9 a plate, the price can't be beat. Plus there's tons of seating there, so I vote for brakfast at RBT for one of the mornings.

I'm so glad you two had a nice time together. Have I mentioned how sad I am that no Divas live near me?

Good Morning all!

Wish I could say I enjoyed the walk down memory lane last night. Capri's account of it did make me laugh, but visuals left me .

I love the idea of the Gospel lunch, but see the problem with the reservations. Also, I need to get crackalackin on doing something about Club 33 seats. I have a few spots that I want to do a contest for. I'm not sure people are going to want to miss the HOB brunch though, so we might have to change the day time for that. Anyway, I'll start thinking about what I want to do, so that we can vote, and get that firmed up on the schedule.

Opening night of the girls trip was my favorite memory of the whole experience.


What i found appealing about the girls only trip is the ability to do whatever you want.
If you wanted to spend the morning shopping, because you never get to with your kids... You can!

If you wanted to try one of the nicer resturants that your family hasn't been to because it's too expensive for a group to go...You can!

If you want to go for drinks and appetizers late at night ...You can!

If you want to ride your favorite 3 times in a row..You can!

If you want to sit and eat ice cream and watch people go by...You can!

It's wonderful to have options to pick from but the best thing is not having things you *have* to do.

It's all up to you what this trip is or isn't.
And if You asked 5 different people who went on the last trip...they would have a wide and varied collection of memories and things they did.

The girl's only trip is a wonderful experience of mutual freedom and fun.

And as great as the experiences are.. it's the people who make this trip so special.
You will find that some people you talked to online, you may not click with in person. Or people that you never talked to online because of time differences..you become great friends with. And if you are really lucky..you will make a few friends that will translate from this online thread into your everyday life. Meaning that you bond on levels other than disneyland.

I, too, LOVED the SH. I was about melted and had to pee since we were running around so much, but it was fantastic

If you want to move the Club 33 meal, just let me know and I'll change it on the schedule.






Morning ladies!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

How about a late-ish breakfast at RBT on Saturday. Say, maybe around 10:00. That way those who want to enjoy the morning in the park, collecting FPs, etc. can do that, and those who want to sleep in, can do so also.
