Very VERY nice!!

You should put all the addresses of people you need to send postcards to, along with the stamps in the sleeve.

Disney just makes us all better people! Even if it's only for a little while.

...MORE DECORATING IDEAS

So, you guys know how I've been looking for a little table top tree to take to WDW right? Well today I had to go to Target and Walmart to pick up a few things and they have their CHRISTMAS decorations two aisles down from their HALLOWEEN decorations!!! (So sad..everyone forgets about turkey day!) Anyway....of course with me loving Christmas as much as I do I went over to check out the goods. I got EXTREMELY excited when I saw 2 foot with lights Christmas trees. One was the disney princesses and was all pink, the other was tinkerbell and it was purple. Oh, this was at Target btw...I ended up talking myself out of purchasing the tree. #1 I couldn't decide which one to get. #2 I have a 5 year old little boy. This trip is about him and not me!! And if he had to chose he would NOT chose a pink or purple tree. So, I went to Walmart and they too had little disney trees. Still 2 foot but they didn't have lights. They were green but they were still either tinkerbell or the princesses. So, I talked myself out of that too. HOWEVER, while I was there I found some little mini round "Cars" and "Pirates of the carribean" ornaments that would look great on mini tree. That way it would be about my son and he would LOVE that tree!! I picked them up and now all I have to do is hold onto them until we pull the Christmas decoration from the attic and I can find (hopefully) my little table top tree. If not, I 'm just going to have to buy one.

Anyway, to make a long story even longer. I REALLY liked the girlie trees!!! Maybe I'll just buy one to put in my house??? Sounds good right???

58 days and counting!!!!

Hi!!! I'm glad you are enjoying my pretrip. I feel that I am boring everyone to tears!!

We REALLY like the Sci-Fi. It was the one place I was most nervous about last visit but it turned out great. The atmosphere was like nothing we've ever experienced before and the food and service was wonderful. I think everyone should try it once!

Looks like your trip is coming up soon too!!!

Hi Vandyfan! I think you are going to LOVE POFQ! It's a small romantic resort that we fell in love with on our honeymoon. I suggesting the horse drawn carriage ride. ( I think you have to schedule it through WDWPLAY) It runs by the river and is SO romantic. There is a BEAUTIFUL courtyard on the grounds that have benches where you can just sit and enjoy the atmosphere. If you are really lucky on a clear night sometimes you can see the fireworks from DTD "new years eve" celebration they have every night. The boat to DTD is GREAT! Especially in the evening. The ride usually takes about 20 mins I believe.

I hope you enjoy your stay!! Keep me updated! If you have any more questions just ask!!

COUNTDOWN UPDATE!!!

50 DAYS 'TILL DISNEY!!!

We are about to be under the 50 day mark! I've been trying to read on here about what the weather is like in Orlando the first part of December. It sounds like it's alot like Alabama..but even more unpredicitible. Usually by the first of December we are pretty settled into our jeans and sweatshirts...but not always. I think it was last Thanksgiving, I was wearing shorts to get the Christmas lights up!

Anyway...this whole weight loss thing isn't really going the way I hoped. I'm not GAINING..but I'm not losing to much either. I've been working alot lately and it's very hard for me to plan to eat healthy when I'm at work. I've found that usually nurses don't eat very healthy...especially those of us that work evening or night shift. I'm still working on it though. I still have 50 days!

I did find some shorts on sale at gap.com. I bought them. We will see how they fit. I also bought a couple of pairs of jeans. What I need now is some long sleeved t-shirts. I have plenty of regular tshirts..but I don't have any LS. (I'm not usually a tshirt wearing kind of gal...UNTIL we go to disney!)

Anyway..those of you who have been in WDW in December...what on earth did you pack? I figure I will pack 5 oufits for each person. A nice mixture of shorts and pants. Our last day at POFQ we are planning to sleep in and then head over to DTD. I am planning to go down and wash clothes and repack them for the next half of our vacation. We usually do laundry anyway on one of our "sleep in days" It just makes things easier. What do you guys think? That way I don't have to pack 10 days worth of clothes!! (I can't BELIEVE I'm trying to condense my packing!)

Sorry for the babbling...these are the things that are running through my head right now.

Have a great weekend!

I'm not far behind
55 days
1333 hours
79996 minutes
4799812 seconds

As far as the packing thing.....I'm a little unsure about that also...but What I've heard is LAYER!! I'll prob take 1-2 pairs of shorts but stick mostly with my khaki's.....wear t-shirts/tanks and take sweatshirts for the evenings

We may do laundry sometime that week too

I'm just so excited to be there during the holidays ...I don't really care

Yeah, Layering will probably be best. I know at nightfall those sweatshirts will come in handy.

I like your countdown...let's see what mine looks like. (knowing me it will probably be wrong..math is NOT my thing....)
50 days

72,000 mins
