Courtney....I am always amazed at people who try to plan a wedding and close on a house all within the same week and they are all stressed out You're story kind of reminded me of that. Glad everything worked out and you're all moved in...its a beautiful house! What does Maddie think of it? Is the backyard fenced in for her? Do you have a pool?

Wow, I can't believe the delay. One time I was flying to Florida and our plane was struck by lightning. We had to land in Atlanta and they had no idea how they were going to get us to Florida. We ended up being there most of the day and they finally found a plane for us.

Can't wait to hear more!

Courtney, I am from B'ham, born and raised. I lived in NOLA for a couple of years. I have been going to NOLA all my life...since I was a little girl (my mom had friends that lived there), SO NOLA has always been my second home and my home at one time. I still consider it home...very much so.

I'm sorry you got stuck at the airport. We are so lucky to live within driving distance of Orlando. 3 1/2 hours and we're there! It does seem to take longer to get there than it does to get back . Congratulations on your beautiful house! Give Maddie a kiss for me.

Hello! Great Trip report so far! Your house is beautiful! I went to Disney with my husband (in 1997) the year before we got married and he had also only been there once. We had the time of our lives and I'm happy we experienced it together before our children came along. Now we have a 4 year old daughter and a 6 year old son and we go to Disney every year. This June my husband and I got to go to Disney for a long weekend, just the two of us and we are going again just the two of us in Aug (for another long weekend) but not doing any parks. We hang by the pool and enjoy some nice dinners just the two of us.
I can't wait to hear about your trip!

Our family on our Feb 2007 Disney Cruise

I love your house!! It's beautiful! We just closed on our house June 1! I don't see how you already have so much unpacked and decorate!!! We still have boxes everywhere.

When did you make it to Orlando??? Can't wait to hear more!

Subscribing, love what you wrote so far. Your new home is beautiful. Sorry you got stuck at the airport, how awful. I know you feel with recital week craziness as we go through that every year with DD7 since she was 3 years old. She takes Ballet, Tap and Jazz and it is alot of work that week with costumes and practicing and then finally the recital. Sure glad to have a short break from that. Anyway looking forward to rest of your trip report. You are such a cute couple.

Ya know, I have never been stuck in an airport or had plans change on me, miss a flight, got delayed. (Knock on wood) The airport Gods are on my side. I feel bad that you got delayed, I can't wait to hear how it turns out.
Thank you so much! It is such a pain to buy/sell/move. All of it-- PAIN! I'm in this house for a while! It'll take us years to outgrow it. We went from 1275 sq. feet to this one being 2106... So, we are enjoying the extra space-- but I'm sure in a few years we'll outgrow it, but I'm certainly enjoying being settled for now!

Can you rub some of that airport pixie dust on me please???? I wish!

Thank you! I'm so glad I didn't have a nervous breakdown from the month of May to June! It was very stressful! Maddie did not like it at first... She was very unsure. She's just like me... Nervous. Garbage truck days, you'd think the world was ending. She sits and shakes. She hates that noise. I'm like "Maddie- since when had the garbage truck gotten you???" Never, she just freaks out! But, now, she's adjusted quite well! She did jump off the bed one day and hurt her arm b/c she slid on the wood floors which she wasn't used to. She hasn't done that again! The yard is fenced, but we don't have a pool... I think we'll do a patio of some sort back there--- it's a pretty good size in the back!

And OMGracious- how scary! I can't believe your plane got struck with lightening! That would have been the end of flying for me!

Do you go to NOLA for Mardi Gras? It gets kinda wild-- that's the time I actually try to stay away =)

I'm so glad you are enjoying it! Reading other people's helped plan mine so much... I hope some of the things that I write about will help you too!
I'll tell Ryan you liked his shirt... I don't even know where he got that from, but of course, everyone thought we were from Canada! I'm like, not even close... Hear me talk and you'll know we are from way further south!

Thank you so much! Recitals are crazy, but they are so much fun! I'm actually glad we're on a break now-- but only till mid-august! But it's nice to be able to go home and do stuff around the house!
