around 10 the night before. Are you on the first shuttle in the morning???? I'm sure I'll be up by 6 or so that morning so I'll be the one aimlessly wandering the halls of the hotel trying to make the clock move faster.....
Y'all flying or driving? We'll be there pretty early at the hotel. We're taking the train overnight, getting in at about 10am I think it is on the 25th. We're renting a car so not doing the shuttle like we'd thought. Hubby is dropping us off at the port with luggage, etc. then taking rental car back. Then he's taking the car rental shuttle to meet up with us. Can't wait until all the logistics is over and we're kicking back with a drink o' the day.

So I need to know, McSparklesons? Or real name?
Oh, McSparklesons for sure!!! Of course, you will have to be-dazzle your shirts or something to go with the name!!!

poor Ally, therapy will help her get over the embarassment it might cause but really you need to do McSparklsons. That is AWESOME!!! no worse than some of the names my lovely father has thought up over the years and yes he always used them much to my horror. I turned out okay (LOL!)

Laura! I'm That would even be better - Kara to get them back for their Non-sparkly attitudes, Don't say anything to Jeff and Ally, just get ahead of them, and tell the CMs your names are Griswold!!!

Seriously, it needs to be the McSParklesons. Threaten Ally. Tell her you will slip them a $50 to play Bon Jovi while you are introduced and that you and Jeff will headbang and sing WORSE than the car ride. I'd bet she would switch her vote.

The McSparklesons is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO unique in cute. You have to do it!

And while not as McSparkly, Griswolds certainly would fit our family too..... we even have a Cousin Eddie....on Jeff's side of course.....

Oh my. That would up her therapy by at least a year, but would be soooo worth it!!! I'm thinking a little Bohemian Rhapsody, Waynes World style, would certainly have her on a therapist's couch by the time she's a teenager......

Actually, the reason McSparklesons is out is that Jeff doesn't want to be all sparkly. I'm thinking his tip toe shoes won't be very comfortable for our introduction.....

We are driving in on Friday - sadly Fridays are very busy days for Jeff at work so I don't know that he will be able to get out of there by 1. I'm thinking we will be on the road by 2 and we're looking at about an 8 hour drive. Our original plan was to stay with friends in Jacksonville, but it's cheaper to stay at the Radisson and park for free than to pay to park at the port, so we are seeing all our Jax friends on that Saturday we get back instead. So we probably won't be in before 10...... But that might be best anyway, the more tired I am when we get there, the easier I can sleep hopefully. Otherwise I will be like a little kid and won't sleep a wind that night!!! Either way I'm sure I'll be up no later than 6am, even though our shuttle doesn't leave until 10am!!!

That makes 2 of us!!!! Four if you count Jeff and Ally, and I'm sure they're are a little nervous. Mommy can be a loose cannon at times, so who knows what she'll do!!! There's also the Snoresalot family. After all, I accuse Jeff of snoring all the time, yet when he's out of town Ally tells me that I snore. Now, I do not believe it for a second.....

16 DAYS!!!!!!

I am seriously stressing right now!!! I've been waiting for one of the DIS designers to get back to me with a design she was working on for my FE gifts, and she's not responding!!! She sent me the rough draft and then when I PM'd her my final list of names, she stopped replying. I'm worried about her, thinking something has happened...... And of course scrambling now to figure out what to do for my gifts!!!!

Luckily, I PM'd another designer who seems to have saved the day!!!!! Thank you ******!!!!! And tjbaggot, hope everything is okay!

However, this has prompted me to try my hand at my OWN designs and they look pretty good! Just something else Disney related to keep me from working during the day, right? But for anyone who is interested, I followed the instructions that one of the designers posted in the Creative Disigns thread, on how to personalize designs using Word, and it works great!!!! I may be doing my own scrapbook pages this way!!!

I tried to post what I did, but I can't figure out how to upload a word document.....

AND, last night was Fashion Show Part 1. I tried on all my shorts/skirts/dresses from last year. So do you think I can drop 20 lbs in the next 15 days???? Actually, it's so funny how the body changes. I'm at my heaviest weight ever, yet things fit that didn't fit before because everything seems to have, er, uh, shifted? From what I am hearing though, I just don't need that many shorts, right? We have 3 days at sea so I've got my swim suit cover ups to wear around the ship during the day over my suit, and then my dinner clothes. I've got a couple skorts for the islands, and then comfy clothes to bum around CC. Am I right????? Or will I want to change after dinner each night? We have the late dinner seating.......

Right now I have 5 pairs of capris can be dressed up or down, 3 skorts, 3 shorts, 2 pool coverups, swimsuits, 5 casual dresses for dinner, 2 dressy dresses, a couple of sweaters, one sweatshirt just in case.....pirate clothes........

I bought my "formal" dress for $20 when it was 75% off at Dillards!! Cha ching!!!! Love when that happens! It's a royal blue Calvin Klein halter style that falls just above the knee. And funny that Ally chose a royal blue long gown that I found online, customer made for her size for ..... $19.99 - double cha ching!!!!!! We both found some strappy silver SPARKLY sandals for dress up, because, well........... Yes, we will be SPARKLY!!!!!!

Then semi formal night I'm wearing black, Ally is wearing A gorgous black/cream gown that "spins" for her. Nothing better than a little girl twirling a big skirt!!!!

And for Palo, I'm wearing a dress I have had for YEARS that I still love and just never get to wear (and it FITS!!!!).

Just got Ally and I some comfy flops last night, new brand competing with Rainbows, that are made out of yoga mats!!!! A bazillion times more comfortable than rainbows!...... so I'm trying to consolidate shoes..... hoping to just bring sneakers, dressy heels, not so dressy heels, flats, 17 pairs of flops (more or less.....)....... the crocs are staying at home this trip, although they seemed so sad last night when they were left behind in the closet...... it's like they were calling out to me, "but we're doing Disney!!!, you ALWAYS take us to Disney!!!"......but they are just too big to pack and I don't think I'll need walking shoes like that. If so, the sneakers will suffice......

Aside from her dinner clothes, Ally will be packed very comfortable this trip. I have a feeling she will want to hang with her new BFFs in the kids club, so there's no point in dressing her "cute" each day when she'll just want to be comfortable. So sad that my baby is growing out of that stage. In previous Disney trips, I've coordinated our outfits for each day so that we don't all clash in photos, but I'm thinking those days are gone.....

And Stein Mart had the best selection of dresses for any ocassion - formal, semi, casual...... LOVE Stein Mart!!!! And jewelry? Ladies, if you need great costume jewelry CHEAP, hit Stein Mart!!!! I got the cutest SPARKLY earrings there.......... of course I did......

Jeff has a new suit, shirts, 3 ties........ and shorts and shirts. It's soooo easy for men to pack, right??????

And..... THE PASSPORT ARRIVED YESTERDAY!!!!!! Along with the new social security card, and the duplicate birth certificate! So Jeff will be well documented. So for all of you who were starting to pack, thinking you might be taking Jeff's place, I'm so very sorry. It's not you, it's.... well, you get the idea.
