Can't wait to read more. Have fun tonight!
Boy Kari...that was hilarious how you found them there!!! It was great meeting you! You will appear in Day 6 of my trippie!!!

Hey COURTNEY!!! Haven't gotten through all the pages yet, but GREAT start to your trip report! It was SO MUCH FUN meeting you and Ryan -
Dana laughed all week about Tower of Terror and your "Oh no! What SHALL we DO?!"

I am going to PM you my email address - can you email me those two photos in an attachment? Thanks so much!

Give Ryan a hug for us - I will catch up on my reading in the next few days!!

What a FANTASTIC TR! Your new house is amazing, and I absolutely LOVE your new hair color. I don't think it looks black - I think it looks very dark brown, which is just how I want mine but no one can seem to do it exactly right! Your wedding pictures are great too. All in all, just a super-dreamy report!

Thanks so much for sharing with us, and I can't wait to read more!!

Hi Courtney! I'm usually a bit of a "lurker" but just had to come out of hiding! Am loving your trip report -you and Ryan are so sweet and funny, you remind me of my husband and me! We got married in the Disney wedding pavillion last year and are totally aching to go back! You are bringing back all the happy memories. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of Pop Century, as we are booked to go there next year for the first time!!!!

PS we have two "children" as well - 2 spaniels, Milly and Wilbur. They're hands down the cutest dogs in England!! We were really disappointed this year - we went to Disneyland LA instead of WDW for a change, and they don't sell any pet gifts there like they do in Florida, so we had to come home empty handed We've been home three days now and they still haven't forgiven us.

Hi Courtney!
I followed the link from DM's trip report. I must say your house is gorgeous! I have an afinity for Louisiana, always have, even though I'm a California Girl!
I, also love your dark hair. It really makes your features pop! It's a keeper, IMO! Oh and you and your DH are just too cute for words!

My DD Maddie is getting a kick outta your furbaby, named Maddie as well!

Looking forward to your next installment!

Can you say JEALOUS???? How awesome! Do you have an annual pass?
Alas, no. It's still quite the expense. We save up for a trip and go. We just went this year, and we're planning to go next year. But, we usually go every 2-4 years.

Sometimes while talking to him he will speak English and french and have us all looking at him like he has two heads, LOL. My youngest, Lexie and I were just down there last week to help my Momma celebrate her birthday and I had to bring back some community coffee (it's all my DH drinks) and of course all the spices and sauces you can only get from down there, kwim? While we were shopping Lexie noticed a can that said turtle and she asked what it was, and my Daddy said "it's turtle soup baby" She got a funny look on her face and then said "PawPaw, I didn't know turtles ate soup, I need to get some for Speedy" ( her pet turtle ) My Daddy, being the best PawPaw a girl could have didn't want to tell her the truth so he said "okay, Baby we'll get your turtle some soup" ........ only in Louisiana could this have happened, LOL.

anyway, thought I would share that with you since you are a fellow Cajun.

looking forward to more, and hope you are having a great weekend !!
Hahahaha! Totally understand.... Only in La, for sure! So cute! I'm definitely a fellow Cajun!

Can't stay away! Getting prepared for our August trip.. but unlike you, my pictures are still sitting in the camera from 3years ago, 2years ago, one year ago.. I think you get the "picture" !
I'm so glad you're not lurking anymore!!!! Welcome! And thank you so much!

He was really good--- We actually only stayed for a few songs then went ride some rides! It's at our local amusement park and it was so hot just sitting out there--- so we did a few coasters--- nothing compared to the WDW rides though!

The house looks GORGEOUS, Courtney! I ADORE your bedroom! What type of furniture is that? We are getting ready to redo our bedroom & bath. I can't wait to go furniture shopping!!!

Yeah, I thought you get a kick out of that! Tell him wearing a hat makes you go bald faster!
DH wears the same hat on our trips and I make him take it off for some of the pictures.
