Countdown to August 2011 (tr link posted)

To anyone new to my family's adventure: WELCOME! To learn a little about us/ where our Disney obsession began, please read my PTR July 2010. If you want to see Disney photos, check out my trip reports.

So Dis friends, today marks four months until we load up and pull out to drive to Disney! Four looonnnngggg months. April. May. June. July.

Top Ten ways to manage the wait (in an order that makes sense to me?!)

10. Finish creating a trip plan for my dear friend's May trip
9. Disney Fridays at school (play theme park tunes at the beginning of class)
8. Window shop at DisneyStore.com and visit the Disney store at least once a month to chat about WDW with a CM
7. Enjoy being an aunt
6. zzzzzzz (okay, this was my cat's addition. No, seriously, he walked on the keyboard and typed the z's.)
5. Shuttle to and cheer at gymnastics practice, soccer practice and soccer games
4. Grade papers until mid-June
3. Sit poolside chatting about Disney with the local stay at home moms (when not listening to a Disney Podcast.)
2. Create a trip binder by discussing all things Disney with DDs and DH
1. Spend time on the Dis with fellow friends waiting for their next trip or reliving their last trip!

Loving your 1st post and can't wait to read more. I am definatly there with you on a lot of your list. I think the main reason I joined the DIS is to talk to other people about Disney and not have them role there eyes at me.
I think I actualy go to the Disney Store to much, is it a bad sign that a few of the CM's know my name and have offered me a job during Christmas?

I do have a couple of friends who love Disney too, but I think I am so over the top some times!

I would be at the Disney Store quite often if it was at my local mall (5 minutes away). Instead, it is at the "big" mall - King of Prussia - apparently, the largest on the East Coast- which is 25 minutes away.

PS - I think it is great that they know you by name!

Hello Please make sure to add in any comments to help me make my two nine year olds extra happy. (If you can remember that long ago...hehe.)

Something that I thought you'd appreciate is that one of my students used the magnets on my board to make a hidden Mickey. Now all of the magnets are hidden Mickeys. The other day, sometime during class, a girl grouped some and wrote "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse." Don't you wish you were in my class?

Hello!
Every time the computer is open, one of my two kittens (they are a year and a half, but I still call them kittens ) walks straight across the keys.

Family Night

I have been super excited for the release of Tangled, and I stopped at Target on my way home and picked it up! They had the blu-ray set for $19.99, and my girlfriend gave me a $5.00 off coupon! (BTW- I will be prepared when we have a blu-ray player - hehe.)

I also picked up some goodies (my girls can't eat popcorn due to braces.)



See those glasses??? Here's a better look...




I made a special stroll to see if Target had any Disney housewares, and I found these on the clearance endcap! They were only....







wait for it...







wait for it...






.74 each! I didn't love the angry Mickey, but the kissing Mickey and Minnie made up for it! (The price didn't hurt either. )


Emma and I set up our candy buffet by using little bowls so everyone could share during the film...





The movie was wonderful, again, and dh chuckled at Max and Pasquel as I thought he would.

I too am sad we will just miss each other! It seems that I am going to miss everyone by only weeks! Just another reason to plan more trips.

What a great night!!!

I ate popcorn when I had braces..shh don't tell haha. The candy is great option though! I bought Tangled on Tues and watched it after work! I was going to show it to the kids on Wed, went to put it in, and noticed it was rated PG (We can only show G at the center) After calming down a crying child..yes way to go Ms. Megan for making promises and not check ratings, we put Hercules in instead which they seemed to enjoy.

I love the glasses! My mom bought me the party mickey head bowls for my birthday! I got a ton of mickey glasswear for Xmas which is packed away now!
