Sarah: Thanks for the compliment, but this weekend didn't turn out the bestest. It all looked good on paper, but I just did too much, and none of it great. Trying too hard to be a good mom for me can end up leaving me feel like the exact opposite. And DH and I are grating on eachother to boot. SIGH...I seriously need a girls weekend away. Any of you up for a girls weekend? LOL!
yes girls weekend.however I doubt hubs will ever let me leave again..ds4 was apparently a handful

You are an amazing rcer yourself my friend

Just popping in to say "HI!" to everyone!!

I'm enjoying reading about everyone's resort changes! We had to make a quick trip to GA this past weekend to visit my DH's family. And this week will have lots of travelling as well so I won't be around much again. I can't wait to see how many more changes are made by the time I'm able to catch up.

If you get a chance try Sanaa .... our new favorite! My DD and I just never got our money's worth out of Boma so one trip we decided to give Sanaa a try. It is now a must do on every trip. We share the bread service and then split the slow cooked entree.

Also if your girls like to swim both pools are great .... also the water play area at Kidani looks like lots of fun. AK is my favorite warm weather resort and WL is my favorite winter one.

But we all know AK won't stick .... wonder where you will actually check in???

I wonder too!!!

But, I'm happy to be booked somewhere I won't worry about affording, but still offering the amenities that my family wants.

If I can afford more later....

Congrats! At least for now

As if I don't have enough going on in my brain with this upcoming trip, my youngest DD informed last night what she really wants for her sweet 16. She said she doesn't want a huge party like I threw her sister, instead, she wants 10 days at the Poly because that is her "dream" resort. DH & I just looked at her. All I was thinking is, great, I can't even make up my mind on next summer's trip and she's already throwing me a curve ball for the summer after that . I turned to DH & asked, should we switch from WL to a moderate in order to start saving for the following summer's Poly trip? Both girls and DH, in sync, yelled "NO"...it was actually pretty funny but honestly, I can't help but wonder now .

Good morning lovely ladies! Hellooooo everyone.

Sheesh, I take a little break and I miss all the excitement.

Candace, o' Candace... You are flippin' hilarious. AKL sounds LOVELY! (Until it goes kaput, of course. )

Hey Miss! I just finally canceled my BWI ressie so it looks verrrry good for us to be resort buddies!

Mousemommy - AKL I kinda hope this one sticks for you. It seems perfect. Lodge-y like the WL and yet something new.

Yes, Lodgy - like completing the lodge tour on our AP's...I think it's got a nice ring to it.

I've actually talked myself into AKL to be honest....here's the rundown...I would really like Poly or YC but I want a plain old GV room, but neither are available under the military discount right now...so, I had settled on BC...close enough, right??? But wasn't like

AKL - it's on our list....thought I would have to do SV, but as I've said before, I'm not paying an extra $500+ for a view that I am honestly going to look at once...there are tons of viewing opportunities all over the place and if we want to see the animals, they'll be there. Plus, lets not forget AKL's high incidence of upgrades (which I am not expecting, and don't care if I get, but hey, it could happen)

With the pool view room, we get less expensive accommodations with all of our desired amenities.

Go AKL!!!!

Oh, and my ticker is down into the 4 months!!!

As of right now, I'm going to keep the WL BUT I do have until February to make a switch on the pin code so I don't know.... . I do know if I make any changes, I'm not saying a word to the family...they're about to commit me
