Looks like that was one super great day filled with lots of fun. I've never tried the pick a pearl but may have to on the next trip!

I love her pics too and her recaps are great; shoulda done that all the way through! The sandwich resort? Oh Oh Oh! BLT; duh. Yeah, I knew that. I think the Contemporary looks like a big taoster, so I was confused.

I have a love/hate relationship with the last day of any WDW trip. At the time, I am usually ready to go home and get back to real life; especially on this trip because I was away from my kids. But once I'm back in real life, I look back and really wish I was still there in WDW! Writing the TR with MEK has been awesome! To see it come to an end is very sad for me because I don't know when my next trip will be!

I have a pick-a-pearl problem; I'M ADDICTED! Way back when, there was a pick-a-pearl place in AK and I watched a lady pull out an 8mm BLUE pearl and I am not on the quest to find one too! I have no idea if it's even possible any more (no idea what kind of pearls are possible to find) but I love the ladies in Japan and picking a pearl there!

Pearls!

Before I head to bed, I'll atleast give you the pearls!



I believe mine is on bottom and MEK's in on top. My pearl was slightly larger, but I like the pink color hers has. If I could have afforded it, I would have put mine in a gold setting (to match the golden pearl).

Hey Jennifer:

Thanks so much for doing replies yesterday. I had church followed by a band concert followed by a super bowl party. Not sure why, but something I drank last night totally did not agree with me. I am swearing off alcohol until the May trip!

I did not realize our pearls were so different in color. I really do like my pearl and I think I will wear it when I go back in May!

Those are really nice pearls, I picked a pearl at Sea World in the 80's. I had it mounted in a ring.

Nooo! Can't be coming to the end of your TR, what will I read?

They really are pretty. I forgot we both had them mounted the same way. Of course, I forgot a lot of things about that night!

Never fear - I will drag out our last day for a little while. I took a TON of pictures. Probably because it was the last day!

Me too. I am always ready to go home, and look back everyday wishing I was there.

And I"m so with you on it being so much harder because I don't know when mine will be either I'm averaging about one every 4 years or so, and that's so hard to wait for!!

Oh my - 1 trip every 4 years?!

I was averaging 2 a year and even managed to do 4 trips one year! If it weren't for those pesky kids...

It seems that I average a trip every 2 or 3 years. I would like to go more often, but DH does not like Disney as well as I do.

Yep, we do. When we bought in I didn't know much about the re-sale market, or even asking to buy an older property from Disney. We are very happy with Kidani though, so no regrets! Our future add-on will most likely be at a different resort though, I'd venture to say the BW is a high contender for that, or if we love BLT as much that will also be in the running.

Great re-cap! I really like that idea, I might have to steal it. Also, beautiful pearls! I was on the pick a pearl thread last night and saw a few settings that I liked...I want to do a ring I think...we'll see what I like in person and if Joe says yes! (hey, it's cheaper than a Dooney, right????)

Sadly, I am bumping my own TR so I can come back and find it easier tonight. Be back with replies after I EAT!

with you MEK and your bumping.


I believe you have now officially sold me on pick a pearl. Adding it to my WS to-do list. Lord knows I spend enough time there. I'm excited to have something new to do!

Do they have a lot of different settings?

I usually prepare myself mentally for whatever my length of stay is and then I, too, am usually ready to go by the time its my last day. But on my trip with Jen I could easily have stayed a couple more days because I really liked the pace we were going at and the things we were doing. I think 5 nights is really a good length for a girls trip.

Oh My - I feel bad for you guys on the west coast. I love knowing I'm only a 2hr flight from Orlando. It makes me feel so much closer.

Don't listen to her - she is such a show off! The other thing Jen failed to mention is that her family trips are usually nice "short" 10 days trips.

That's where the girl's trips come in handy. For the DH who doesn't want to go every year. That's how Denny is. He could average once every 18 to 24 months but if the trips are closer than a year he starts saying, "This place is getting boring. I've done everything".

I have a feeling you will like BW more than BLT. IDK - I could be wrong. So far I have only stayed at Kidani, VWL, and SSR and I liked all those rooms better than BLT. I'm kind-of glad I don't own there because I just didn't love the studio. I wanted too. I think Kidani is my favorite so far. I can't wait to see how I think BCV and BWV compare.

I had NO idea there is a pick a pearl thread. What will they think of next? And - Yes - Definitely cheaper than a Dooney and a great little souvie!

Cool! Then I am going as your paparazzi so I can capture the event with digital images! It really is a fun activity because those girls makes it hysterical.

And, yes, they have tons of different settings. I basically picked the simplest, least expensive setting because I was in no shape to make any difficult decisions and I knew it would work on the silver chain I have. I honestly thought the settings were somewhat overpriced, but you are paying for the show and the convenience.
