Smile school is stressing me OUT! best de-stressor? a trip to Disney of course! pg 25 p 364

NEW DATES! ALL INFO COMINg SOON!!!!
update: April 21, 2012....our plans listed by daily adventures


Hello! to all my dis buds and hopefully some new friends will join me (so let me know if you drop by!) in some planning fun. This will be my third PTR (continued!!!) After many tears and heart felt discussions DH and I finally agreed on our new dates! and I HAVE PAID it in full! so he cannot change his mind....BUT in the agreement, this will be our last trip for a few years!

my last update is PAGE 25 POST 364--I will be back with our new updates (if anyone out there plans to join along...I don't blame you if you don't as I have not been a very good disser, myself, for quite some time!

So, join me for some planning fun (and help with a catchy title, if you have any ideas)...


The basics of this adventure:
the place: Walt Disney World Resort, of course POP
Time: SATURDAY MAY 12 - MAY 18
FIRST TIME ON DDP--I will need plenty of help getting it down to just five TS (after following TR's for the past three years, so many places I want to try and only 4 to choose from)
cast continued in next post

the cast

Here we are using the Friendship Boats for the first time last year:


First up: Ashton
I have managed to help develop his love for all that is Disney: he loves all the characters, loves to meet them, hug them, high five!, and have his picture taken! (I am really enjoying this part of his life; he was a wonderful surprise angel that we were Blessed with--since he was the only one of the three that was not in our plan. When he came along Danny and I thought we were getting ready to move on to the next phase of our lives together...no small children, adult children, and getting to know one another all over again. But, Ashton had other plans and we are loving the ride! I know Ashton and his love of Disney is one of the reasons Danny keeps agreeing to return to Disney for the past three years).



Danny (DH)
Now, Danny does not share our love of Disney! BUT! he has a wonderful time each and every time we go
If you ask Danny his favorite he will honestly tell you Islands of Adventure at Universal. BUT, he has attractions at Disney that he loves! and he will tell you that unlike US he enjoys each and every park that Disney offers and Disney is the best with quality, design, and MAGIC!

(I know it is not a Disney picture; but, it is one of my favorites of DH from last year and since he poses with Ashton all the time you will see lots of great shots of him along in this PTR--I hope to add a few of my favorite shots from our previous trips as I progress with this PTR)


and than there is yours truly: me, Connie
(not many pics for me to pick from as I am usually the picture taker and not comfortable being in front of the lens)
and yes! almost any pic you catch of me will have these huge out of date sun glasses...I will definatley have to bring contacts and updates shades this year


HOPING, but not thinking it will happen that our son, Dayne 19, will join us again this year. He loves Disney and Universal! he is always wanting to plan a trip and looks forward to the year he can talk a few of his friends into going with him. Last year he brought along a friend and he can't wait to return, too! So, who knows before all is said and done Dayne and possilby Luke may be joining us again this year.
in this picture is Dayne (who would not let me take any pictures of him this past year) and his sister, Gwendolyn (in the green shirt) more about her later.


so, this is our cast this year...I'm sure I will find different pictures to share as we go along!

Who we cannot wait to celebrate with:

This post reserved for (hopefully pics) dis buds we plan to celebrate the magic:

This planned trip came about when several of dis friends started talking about the Wine & Dine marathon in Oct. many are planning to run! although, I am not a runner I have been wanting to meet (face to face -as I feel I know them so well already) them for so long now. I can't wait for Ashton (and me too!) to see WDW dressed up for Halloween (how fun)...many of the dissers I follow have been lucky enough this past year to visit for Halloween and Christmas; and have commented that their children (as well as themselves included) prefer the Halloween party to the Christmas party (I'm holding on to this as I have wanted to visit WDW at Christmas for many of years now but looks to be in our 2013 future).
So, that I know of we will be meeting up with:
(if I get your dis name wrong--I'll come back to fill it in-I'm trying to do this quickly as I am suppose to be getting ready to leave and instead I'm dissing
Kathy and Mark (KatMark) AKL 9/23 and 9/24 and then the CSR 9/25 - 9/29

Mary, Jeff, Avery, & Cayley (MaryAZ) Sep 24-Oct 3rd AKV Kidani

Leanne, Joe, Lindsey, & Josie (leamom2princesses) Sept. 29-Oct. 6 at AKV Kidani

Wendy, Mike, Emily, and Eva (wlwilliams9 ) 9/28-10/4: Pop

Stephanie, Alyan (sp), Lillian (Charlefours) 9/28-10/4: Pop

Kayce, Bella, and friends (kcandbella) 9/28-10/5: ASMu

hopefully, Nickie, Wayne, Miles, and Owen (my2disneyboys) [ I cannot wait to meet Nickie--she is the one who started me posting a few years back and I know Ashton cannot wait to meet her boys]--well, we can't wait to meet ALL our friends! Nickie and Wayne have decided to join us! they will be staying at the POR 9/30/11 - 10/3/11 .

Jill and her friend Lisa will be joining in the fun!!!! AKV 09/30/11 - 10/2/11


I'll be back for more in a bit....I really am not suppose to be dissing at this time, so I'll bid adieu for the moment and re-join you guys later!
Connie

I'm here, Connie. Great start. We have to go to wrestling later this afternoon after my new washing machine is here and installed, but I'll try to think of a title (although I'm not very imaginative with stuff like that).

And Mark and I can't wait to meet you, Danny and Ashton.

I'm here. Now I'm gonna want to try to talk DH into an October trip to meet everyone. Fat chance though since we're going in June. Maybe we can meet up in 2013 at Christmas.

Hello! Lisa
still working on that title....
hoping you and Mary (everyone for that matter) can help with a catchy title, but I'm thinking about it....
thank you for joining me and getting my butt in gear to get this PTR started,
needs lots of help from you guys that dine in the world; if you remember we are CS budget people so this should be a fun experience. We just need to remember Danny and I are both from New Orleans and are food snobs.

Hello! Shannon
Oh! that would be so AWESOME if you guys could figure out a trip in October. I am really hoping Nickie and Wayne will be able to join us. It is going to be so much fun. But, if not planning a trip with you guys for Christmas 2013 would be alot of fun too!.

Hello! Mary

We cannot wait to meet you guys!!! Ashton is so excited to meet with Cayley and AVery, I told him we are going to visit with Crush with you and the girls! I was telling Danny and Jeff & Joe and their drinking adventures he is stoked (he is actually getting excited and can't wait to meet up with all the guys!).

The glasses are prescription, but from the '90's. I had an updated pair and they broke, I love my old lenses they have a rose tone and I can wear day or night. I can't find any new ones like that. I really need to get my contacts updated but you will still see sunglasses on me can't stand the glare so I'm normally sporting them anytime there is any bright light around.
