Aloha ladies from the beautiful island of Maui! We will be having a very non-traditional Thanksgiving! Eating at the famous Duke's Beach House (he was consider the father of surfing). Looking forward to macadamia nut crushed fresh fish of the day! Yep - no turkey! They actually do offer it on the menu today but I prefer their fish. Best of all - no cooking!

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

I agree that Violet is adorable.

Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? I have a few last minute things to get at Fresh and Easy tomorrow (because they are like fresh and easy ) and we will be all set for the big feast.
I stared right at those 8 balls because I had never noticed them before. If I had only looked a little lower! I'm hoping to get a trip in next month and I will find that monkey!

Sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving. Today Sarah and I said next year we are going to the Thanksgiving dinner at the Disneyland Hotel.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! In less than 10 hours, I'll be on my way to WDW. I think I'm finally done packing everything but the backpack. Need my glasses that I'm wearing and stuff like that to go in there still. I'M TOO EXCITED TO SLEEP!!!!!!!

Catch you all on the flip side!

Happy Black Friday, ladies!! If you are out braving the crowds, I hope you find some awesome deals.
No shopping for me today. I've got to pack because as soon as Ruben gets home from work, we are leaving for California for the weekend. Going to visit his parents, and also get in a day at Universal.


Lisa, have a magical trip!!!

Bridget, sounds like a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving.

Oh Man Bridget that sounds awesome!! Have a blast.

Trudi mom and I are going to be buying our Regan tickets hopefully this week so I will let you know.

Beth have a blast at Univ and visiting the family. We went one time for Grinchmas and it was a blast and we were actually going to do it on this trip but it is SO expensive we opted to just go the museum and sight see instead. Have a blast!!

Today the girls and I are going with my parents to a museum here in town that has a Norman Rockwell exhibit. I love his work and am looking forward to it!

Tomorrow the girls are going with their dad to see Breaking Dawn and mom and I are going to do a little xmas shopping.

That's bout it for us. Hope everyone else is enjoying their holiday!

I just have to say that I love your Black Friday deals!! I wasn't brave enough to venture out to the stores but I did do some online shopping. They had a few sales here to keep us this side of the border but nothing too amazing.

Our little town has had a couple of exciting weeks. We have a small, old 24hour diner that is a great place to go after being out at the bars all night but it's also recently been picked for quite a few movies. The latest movie is starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter for anyone that doesn't know) He's been very approachable and awesome to his fans. He's been spotted at Tim Hortons mostly My brother got to meet him which is pretty cool!

Time to do some catching up! It's been a while. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and aren't getting trampled at the stores on Black Friday. We have something similar the day after Christmas called Boxing Day. I think some people try to take that title literally.

Lisa, I hope you have a magical time in WDW!

Beth, I hope you have a great weekend with family and Universal.

Angie that's really exciting about Daniel being in your town. Hopefully you get to run into him at some point! The most exciting I've seen recently (and it wasn't THAT exciting) is Xibit's tour bus last weekend in Calgary. Boy that man doesn't like to be discreet! His face was plastered all over that thing!

I saw Breaking Dawn last weekend, and again on Wednesday. I loved it! Nice twist at the end, which I wasn't expecting.

This weekend I think we are going to set up Christmas. I know it's still a bit early, but I didn't get to set up at all last year, since we were moving, so now I am really itching to do it. I just hope it warms up enough to get lights on the house!

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a good Thanksgiving weekend. My kids and husband have been sick, but everyone was finally feeling well enough today that we ventured out to this place in Seattle (Ballard) I have been wanting to try. It's called Hot Cakes and the lady who runs it used to be a chocolatier for Theo's Chocolates. Anyway, their specialty is chocolate lava cakes and they also have pocket pies, chocolate and caramel sipping drinks, shakes etc. and butter beer! It is a fun place. Their products are all organic and they have gluten free and vegan options for those that want that. Anyway, that was my Saturday adventure.

Lisa - hope you are having a great time at WDW!

Kelly - I love Norman Rockwell's work. Hope you enjoy the museum!

Beth - hope you are enjoying Universal with your family.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend!

Pam that sounds amazing! Hope it was yummy!

Thanks about the museum. It was really neat. Not only seeing Rockwell but also the rest of the art!

Can't believe the kids week off is already basically over. Today we are just doing grocery shopping and chores and we started watching our xmas movies.

Katy starts practice again for comp cheer tomorrow. SOOO not looking forward to that again. I was loving having a break. Ah well never ends LOL.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Hello, ladies! I hope everyone had a good weekend!
We got home earlier today from Cali. It was nice. Quick, but fun. We enjoyed our day at Universal. I'll post some pics on FB tomorrow probably.

The only downside... I got sick!! I started feeling it late Saturday night, before we left the park. Now, I have a headache, my eyes hurt (of all things!), and a sore throat. A few chills, too. I am not gonna lie. I'm a bit freaked out. I have 11 days to get well, before our WA trip. I've put so much planning into it, I'd hate to have it ruined now. So, I am drinking lots of water, and tea. Taking Airborne and Zinc. Tomorrow when the kids are in school, I'll try to rest. I guess that's all I can do!


I'm off to finish unpacking. Just wanted to pop in and say hello.

Thanks, Bridget! Goodness, it is quiet around this thread...


Just a quick reminder, if you signed up for the stocking exchange, the mail by date is this Friday.
Also, if you are interested in the Christmas card exchange, send me your name/address by this Friday and I will add you to the list. We don't have very many yet, only around 15 so don't think by signing up it means you'll be sending out 70 cards!! But, it's fun to get a few extra cards in the mail to display.

Hello Ladies!
It is really slow around here and I know it is when I am able to keep up! I'm guessing everyone is busy with holiday stuff, work etc...

Our move is temporarily unscheduled so I am going a bit crazy. We had to move our loan and don't know when it will close just yet. Hoping for some resolve to day. In the meantime, we are 95% packed, as we were scheduled to move this Friday originally. I'm not sure who is having more anxiety over the choas, my dog or my husband. Neither are very happy right now!

I did however accomplish all my Xmas shopping the week of Thanksgiving, so that feels darn good to have that crossed of my list. It is a lot easier as the kids get older and want more expensive items.

I am looking forward to Nathan and I's short little disney trip next month, but feel really reluctant to plan on too much, since I don't know what the fast pass situation will be, nor the RSR strategy at that time...I guess we will just wing it. Maybe Laurie will give me her tips and strategies, since they leave the day after we arrive.

OK, off to go get kids ready for school.

T

Hello, everyone! Er.... um, anyone?? lol

Tracey, sorry you are in limbo with your move. But, at least you got all your shopping done early. That's one less thing to stress about!
