I can't quote on my iPhone (fat fingers), but wanted to say you are about 40 minutes from us...we're in Carol Stream.

Thanks for joining in!

Your DD sounds like she would have been very helpful when we were house hunting! That's hilarious! I bet she and Maddie would be thick as thieves!

Hope you enjoy the TR!

I know exactly where that is! My college roommate worked at a video store in Carol Stream on breaks, and her boyfriend was from there too. Her family and my DH's godfather live in Winfield. Small world!

I just stumbled on your TR and saw you were from my neck of the woods, so I read a little (you're about 50 miles from me, if you're in Plainfield). I'm a reality show nut too, from way back - so I kept reading. Then I saw your reveal video and it was adorable, so I'm in for this TR.

We had to live in a hotel for a month back in 2009 when we were between an apartment and the closing date on our condo; it actually wasn't too bad. It wasn't too good, but it wasn't too bad. However, I do NOT want to do that again! I thought DBF and I were going to go nuts in that small space with both of us trying to work around the other person and their schedule; it was definitely a trial by fire!

I tend to lurk a lot more than comment, but I'll be here reading for sure!

Oh, dear God no! That's even worse than the Cubs.

I'm about 80 miles from Cincinnati.

Whoa, whoa, whoa - nothing wrong with a Cardinals fan, now!

Cardinals and the White Sox -- the worse. Leave my Cubbies alone though...they've not won a World Series in over 100 years and probably won't in the next 20 years either.

I'M HERE! I'M HERE!
I think you know how I feel about my MIL coming on our last trip from my TR. Can't wait to see how that turns out for you!
Maddie and my girls would get along great. Pink, purple, and sparkle? YES!
I am amazed that you were able to pull off a trip in the middle of moving chaos! You've got talent and a love of WDW for sure!

I'm joining in! The surprise video was adorable! That must have been one stressful time for you and DH. I couldn't imagine moving and than going to Disney the next day!

Add another Cub's fan. You do have to give all cubs fan's one thing and that is loyalty, we are definitely not jumping on as a fan for the wins.

Thanks for joining in! Hotel living is ok. Not something I care to do again, but not crying into my Cheerios every morning either. It is a small space, but she's 5 so she doesn't take up too much room

I couldn't agree more. I often try to decide which fans are worse--Cardinals or Sox. Sadly, I'm surrounded by both.

DH and I both really want to get to Cincinnati for a game one of these days. The ballpark looks beautiful!

Thanks! It's the one thing that people seems to really notice from the last report, so I figured it had to be my "thing"

I choose to believe Theo. 5 year plan Kathy. and, they've won 6 of 10! What's going on with Samardja's hair though? You'd think a Notre Dame boy would know better than to look like a bad 70s adult film star.

Yay!! I'm glad you're here!! I was actually thinking of you and your MiL during the trip! It wasn't that bad, but it wasn't great. I bet our girls would be fast friends. The trip is what got us through the moving. With out that light at the end of the tunnel I may have lost my mind!

Welcome! Thanks for joining in! It was stressful, but a WDW vacation was the best motivator. We kept telling each other "just get through this and then we're going on vacation" It became our mantra
