i guess I would have a different idea of bacon in a cup.... but that's another story. I'm so glad that Kara found her girl crush. From the photos she seems wonderful.

Yup Kara needs mittens or she will be skinless from scratching...get well soon

Glad that you and Timmy have a trip planned. I really want to do that with each of my girls. BUmmer on Sean's school. Happy to hear it is making progress. Big hugs for the court date--I know it is just a techinicality but still ugh for court.
Loving the updates!

I love staying at VWL, actually I love staying at all the different resorts. But what I really like about staying at VWL is renting bikes and cruising around the camp grounds. Last time we did that I came back early to do laundry or something and Rob and Sarah almost ran into a couple of teenage deer with their bikes. I do not know who was more shocked, the deer or the humans. Rob said it happened so quickly he did not even have time to snap a shot (and he is like you with his camera, it is always attached to his body).

A personal medical update on me, I went back in for surgery on my hand yesterday and the doc removed the hardware he put in when I crushed the finger bone. The bone healed nicely (but a bit crooked now) but one the screws was poking into a tendon which was creating issues. All is good now.

I'm glad your surgery went well, Kate! I have a question- how did he know they were teenage deer? Did they dye the top of their hair pink and were they walking and texting?

Kara try some Benadryl,that stops the itching if very bad. I know from experience!

Right now living large at AKL, loving every minute except for being stuck on SM & walking down the mountain! Not as bad as you would think!

Yep, pink hair and Ipods/Iphones. I really do not know how he knew, I assume they no longer had their fawn spots but were still small. That is a good question.

Another side note, I had to kick a student out of my class this week for disruptive behavior and foul language. Scary for me and the other students; he left yelling, well, I cannot write it here but it ended in "you" as he walked out of the door. I filed a report and he is no longer on my classlist so hopefully he will not be back. I love my job but sometimes I just want to stay home and hide. On a happy note, the other 34 students in this class are awesome. And I have the next four days to stay home and destress (medical leave and the weekend). Bring on the wine.

And now for the real story....

"That Miss Ellen, she CRAZY!" - a quote from my Ally. And she knows what she's talkin about!!!

So we kicked Cammie and Joan out to go see Villains and believe me, it made it a lot easier to get showered with only two in the room instead of all 4 of us. Although I must admit that 4 women sharing a room wasn't nearly as crazy as I thought it would be.....

We stood outside and said our goodbyes to the Magic.....





Then our goodbyes to Atlantis...





Then our goodbyes to our cabin as we decided to head out and cause some trouble....

Ellen said goodbye to her sanity, trying to imitate the Cinderella mosaic.....



Cause...."That Miss Ellen, she CRAZY!"

Then it was time to head to the District to see my sweetie....



"That Miss Ellen, she STILL Crazy!!!"

And yes, this is when it happened........

It was the birth of Pauldo in the Skyline lounge.....



Of course, all I wanted to know was....
WHERE'S ALEX?????

I ordered my new favorite drink of all time, a martini called "OohLaLa" and I received a Pauldo "OohLaLa."



We tried to put on brave faces, hoping our Alex would return soon.....



And then..... the girl of my dreams.... came through that door....

And gave me this.



No freakin idea what it was but it was NASTY!!!!! I tried to order something different, but my girl Alex soon whisked it away and made me a REAL OohLaLa.....

And yes, Ellen, she did say, "Dees ees not OohLaLa. OohLaLa ees martini, does THEES look like martini?"

She had me at "Dees."

Before long, Cammie and Joan met up with us (yeah, like they had trouble finding us! ) and we headed down to dinner.....

Tonight we would be dining in Enchanted Garden....



For my appetizer I had....
North Atlantic Lobster Ravioli - with roasted garlic and sweet basil in a light tomato broth.





Somebody ordered....
Thyme and Garlic Brioche - filled with Chanterelle, Hedgehog and Black Trumpet Mushrooms and Leek Stew in a light buttermilk cream.



We pretty much shared everything, and it was all delicious!!!

Someone ordered the....
Pan-seared Sea Bass - with Saffron and fennel risotto with a sweet chili glaze for their entree.



And someone ordered the....
Caramelized Sea Scallops - with roasted asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes, and pearl pasta, garnished with caramelized leeks and veal jus reduction.



And soon, word spread that the DISmoms were on board. Because we were greeted by the chef!!!!!



Does anyone know WHY he came out to our table? Was it to ask us to leave and we had our photo taken with him first? Or was he just smitten with the DISmoms?????

Dessert....



And of course you know what comes next......

Napkin hats!!!!!!!

That is a really great picture of you Ellen. My only question is why do you have a ring of sausages on your arm? Well, at least that is what it looks like to me. Or else it is a really big bracelet.

It's actually a floating camera strap, for underwater cameras..... I have one just like it and love it because you can never lose it! Now I'll always think of it as a ring of sausages!!!

Yeah, all caught up here!
How fun to see the Magic in port, that must have been so awesome.
And all your other adventures were just too funny. Love the Pauldo and Alex drinks too.

Not gonna lie, I was cracking up while I was reading your updates this morning.

That Miss Ellen strikes again!

And the Oh La La. "Dees aint no martini!". That is the strangest looking martini I have ever seen. Thank goodness your savior bartender came along. Sounds like not a minute too soon. I will remember to look her up when we cruise next year. I hope she is still there.

Dinner looks amazing! Yum!
