I feel like I was just complaining about how early Halloween candy was being sold, and now we're almost a week past it already!

Between the holidays, my friend's wedding, and a few upcoming trips, I think time is going to go pretty quick for me!

Just a little over a week till we can book!!!!

No other real news on the trip-front. Mark hasn't booked the May trip yet, but I think we'll be staying at Old Key West. Ben and I stayed there one night on our last trip, and I really liked it- I'm looking forward to returning there!

By the way, your PTR title is something I should have used for mine. the "wishing a year away" Yes, that is what I did... and I am not quite sure how...but my wish certainly came true. Course... maybe I do know how the year has flown by... been a pretty hectic year. Ah... we will just go with my wish being fulfilled.

I know what you mean! I can't believe it's already a week after Halloween! And true to form, Christmas music started playing at Walmart on Nov. 1st!

I have a lot to do for the rest of the year as well! (Which is fine with me!) I have two weddings, one trip, and the holidays (and baking for the holidays) to keep me busy!
I hope your weekend is going great!

You certainly did have a busy year! Not too surprising that it went so quickly!

I know! Ben has sent an alarm in his phone so we don't forget. I don't think that's a problem.

haha I feel the same way about the "early" holiday spirit! I really love Christmas music and Christmas movies, so it's all good for me (I always look for a good reason to watch the Santa Clause and Elf!) DH can't stand it! He is a bit on the scrooge side! hahaha I'm going to have to get him more into the holidays!

There's already folks with Christmas lights out! I am actually excited... looking forward to putting the tree up.

Neither trip is booked yet! Still waiting on Mark for the May one, and we can't book our October trip till Sunday. But that's less than a week away!

I am itching to plan for May, so I can't wait to get dates...

Time is still ticking along. We can book on Sunday, so that is the short-term goal that is keeping me sane right now

Ben and I spent Sunday at Old Sturbridge Village and had a BLAST! It was actually a little Disney-like in the sense that it is a super well themed place. Neither of us had been since we were little and weren't sure what to expect. Between checking out the old buildings and talking to the 1830s folks who inhabit the village, we spent several hours.

A few pictures of our day:





This was the potter. He was great! A little girl helped him make a pot, it was so cute to watch! All of the trades people were very informative and fascinating. The shoe maker, blacksmiths, cooper (barrel maker), there was also a house in which a real meal was being cooked and we talked to the folks about the cooking methods and food choices as they were eating.

This is the OSV version of a Segway tour



The stilts were TOUGH!


We took this picture because the door blended into the building. And Ben thought I blended into it, too.


Ben didn't see why he'd have to watch his head.


These little cow-guys (who were actually steer, I think) were lovely. I was smitten.




The tinner (as in the guy who works with tin) was the last shop we visited. He was super informative and so, so nice! He was making candlestick holders, and as we left, he gave me one!

(We checked on the way out and these were $8 in the gift shop )

Another highlight of the day was the delicious hot apple cider and snicker doodle cookies. SO GOOD!

We ended the day with an amazing dinner at the Publick House. I'd highly recommend both of these things if you find yourself in Massachusetts

Don't worry, Sunday will be here before you know it! Are you staying at AKL? (Sorry, did you mention where you were staying earlier? I don't remember! )

Aww, Old Sturbridge Village! My parents dragged my sister and I there a couple of times when we were kids, and lets just say, we didn't exactly appreciate it then! I'd love to go again, it looks like fun!

Our home resort is Bay Lake Tower, so that is where we can book 11 months out. We'll try to switch to Boardwalk Villas when the 7 month non-home resort booking opens!

Sturbridge Village was awesome. Ben and I were fascinated by the 18th and 19th century buildings and customs. Pretty much every kid we saw didn't want to be there. If I were a parent (which thankfully to my potential children, I won't be! ), I'd leave 'em home and go check it out myself!

Old Sturbridge Village looks cool...I love stuff like that! I lived in Virginia for a few years and was forever haunting places like Monticello, Mount Vernon, Appomattox Courthouse, and Olde Williamsburg. Good times!

What a fun weekend outing. I love things like that. Great picture too! And... I love how you always manage to dress to blend in with your surroundings

I haven't been to OSV in YEARS! I remember it kind of being like a mini Colonial Williamsburg-- love your pictures! Those cows are precious!
Why do you blend into everything?! Chairs, doors?!
