Very exciting that's going to be weird seeing your new surname on your passport :-) *exciting* and although its a lot of things to do plus wedding planning both are going to be so amazing that its got to be worth it :-D

My fella just won some money on the roulette so we just put another £50 in the food pot, £20 in my savings pot and his kept the other £50 to get himself some decent flip flops/sandals for the holiday! Now we just need to win our bets on the horses today and that's more money towards the holiday :-D

Something rather funny happened today, I was out at our local leisure area and we have a Hollywood bowl there, I called a cab so we could go home and this is how it went!

Cab firm: "hello where would you like your taxi to collect you from?"

Me: "Hollywood studios please"

Cab firm: "I'm sorry where?"

Me: "Hollywood.......bowl, I'm so sorry I meant Hollywood bowl"

Cab firm: laughter "it's ok you made me laugh at least"

I was soooo embarrassed, forget the term baby brain! I have Disney brain LOL

Thought I'd post a little update, we have finally booked and paid for the Gatwick flyer and the extra baggage for the way home :-) so now all we need is the insurance, Visa's, and our photopass plus :-D feels good to have ticked a couple of things off of the list!!

Also at work we had someone come over from one of the other nurseries, turn out they are going out on the 2nd for 2 weeks, and we fly out on the 3rd for 2 weeks, small world indeed! No doubt we will but into each other out there, considering everyone I've been I have bumped into someone I know!

No visa needed for the US.

You will love Discovery Cove, we have done it twice (the second time my daughter did the 'Trainer for a Day') and its so peaceful and quiet. Enjoy!

My bad ESTA! Not visa lol

I'm soooo excited to be doing discovery cove! The last time we went I couldn't afford it as I had been off sick the year prior to going with a fractured spine and degenerative disc disease! This time it's all booked and paid for! The excitement is practically uncontrollable! I think I'm driving everyone insane with my countdown haha!

Ok so pretty much everything is sorted, insurance, ESTA's approved for all three of us, extra luggage for the flight home, Gatwick flyer booked both ways and with extra luggage on the way back, spare batteries for my camera bought!

The only things left to do now is:
Buy some more clothes, toiletries, footwear etc
Get some more sd cards for the camera
But the photopass plus
And lastly change up our £'s - $'s

Nearly done with just 39 days to go or 30 working days which sounds much better :-D

Wow to think I last posted at 39 days to go!

I now have 11! Omg! Everything is pretty much sorted! Had some hassle at the weekend to do with our discovery cove tickets but that seems to be sorted now, I shall be calling kenwood travel tomorrow just to triple check!!!!

All we have left to do is change our dollars up on Saturday. Me and my mum are also getting our hair done tomorrow and waxing done on Saturday then that's it, apart from packing we are all set! Everything is bought, and ready! :-) I'm soooo excited and I look forward to hopefully doing a live trip report whilst I'm out there :-D

Fantastic! Hope you do a full tr when you are back.
I know they always come around really quick but it never feels that way until the last week or two!

I love doing all the pre-hol preparations and appointments x

Oh I will it'll make it more fun afterwards, I can sit and reminisce!

Slightly upset as my hairdresser cancelled on us for the 3rd time in 2 weeks and now cannot do it before the holiday! Now I'm very stuck and worried as it looks horrible, and I cannot afford he salon prices! I could cry! What a downer it's put on mine and my mums mood!!

oh that's a shame,i'm sure all the fun of Disney will soon make you forget about that!

although for me at least my hair is something I like to get done but on holiday I almost always wear it tied back anyway so it wouldn't make all that much difference
