EMMA!

I read your last TR only a few days ago so I couldn't comment on it. I L-O-V-E-D it. Your writing style is fabulous! At first I thought that it would be weird reading a TR with pictures of faces cropped out and such but your TR is by far one of my favorites!

I love how you take pictures with your AG dolls. I always wanted an AG doll when I was younger (specifically Molly, because I had glasses as a kid!) but I never got one. I feel like I get to have a little bit of AG in my life via your posts. I also bring a "friend" with me too ... a little pink bunny named Bailey. He has been on vacations with my family for the past 5 years or so and I always love taking pictures with him in them!

Though this is "old" new, congratulations on your AP scores! I was in awe! I only got 6 credits for scoring a 4 on my English exam. The other ones were ... an embarrassment, haha. I can't believe you took so many and still did so well!

Definitely waiting for your next installment ...

Beaches and Cream looked to be a great start to your WDW trip. I really want to get over there and try it on one of my next visits.

Did you enjoy your POR room? Did you have one of the rooms with the trundle bed? We stayed in the mansion section a few years ago and enjoyed it (but not the oodles of bus stops).

I am looking forward to reading about your park experiences this time.

BTW...you do a great job with your updo's. I can only imagine how difficult they are to do on yourself.

Yummy.............burgers from B&C. We love No Way Jose, but make ours all vanilla ice cream, I love chocolate, but it is too rich with all the toppings. We try to go our first day at WDW.

POR AB is so much fun, it is so tranquil and lush.

AG doll pictures are too cute. My middle DD had one, Molly. The Pleasant Co started in WI, they have a big sale every year near Madison WI. We never bought anything on a discount. lol. DD is now 25, but I still stop at the AG store in Chicago on each visit.

Hello all!

This is my first post from my brand new dorm room!!

I just wanted to post & say I won't have an update until Monday (possibly later!). I'll try for sooner, but the freshman orientation schedule is pretty packed!

I gotta run - breakfast is in ten minutes - but I'll reply to all your nice posts & get the update up (with some fun tales from World Showcase) as soon as I can!

Congratulations on starting your college experience Emma! It will be a blast and you will get to experience so many new and wonderful things. I remember when I started university and what a challenging and wonderful experience it was.

Don't be afraid to make lots of friends and try new things, that is what university is for!

Hello Emma. I haven't read all of this TR yet, but I just finished the last one a week ago! I just wanted to subscribe, say hi and I approve of your snobbish behavior...especially in regards to Universal.

So I found you on another trip report and have just caught up on your last report and this one. I am also 18 and really can't believe that you write sooooo beautifully. I just love your writing style and will continue reading.

elena05...I would definitely recommend checking out Beaches n' Cream!

BeautyluvsBeast...I'm glad you enjoyed the hair-straightening-potions! Some of them are expensive, though! I'm running out of Biosilk and those big bottles can be over $30! My mom can get it cheaper online somewhere, so I'll have to wait for her to buy it...

Lifelong_dreamer...Yeah...I love my little towel hippo!

ObsessedwithWDW...aww! Thank you so much!

HKinDC...I'm sure your Samantha would like to come out of "hibernation!" I put most of my dolls in "hibernation" while I'm away at college, but Felicity I brought with me! She likes her new shelf very much!

KathyRN137...I always wanted Dart to be a marine biologist (I kinda wanted to be one when I was a kid...), but photographer would be a good alternative!

Louise-Montreal...oooo! I love book recommendations! I will definitley be looking those up in the library ASAP!

Sleeping*Beauty...lol...Aramis said that our server was "kinda cute."

LISAMWDW...

Thank you!!!

ChrisLei...I like that...Emma the Enabler!

celerystalker...When we were at Beaches n' Cream, there were groups of THREE ordering Kitchen Sinks, but I would think six would the perfect number to finish it!

Flossbolna...Welcome and I'm so glad you're liking it!

From the back of your head, you remind me SO much of my dance teacher! I should see if I have a picture of the back of her head for comparison.
My mom would be glad to hear that...the photos of the back of me are supposed to look like anybody else!

(I'm not a dance teacher, though, just to let you know! )

disneyeeyorefan...Nope! The waitress still hasn't contacted Aramis...I don't think she will!

Also, not only have you convinced me to spend $$ on hair products, but I may end up going out for ice cream tonight! Either you're an excellent salesperson, or I am a complete sucker.
Maybe I should change my major...do I belong in marketing instead of engineering?

MissMichelle...welcome aboard!

mariacj...I'm so glad you're enjoying it!

abbybeth...ugh...We straightened then curled my hair for graduation and it took forever!

IwasatWDWforamonth...Thanks!

BriarRosie...you ARE lucky to have straight hair!

burly...Welcome!

Nicole786...Beaches n' Cream is definitely very yummy!

donnajean17, RachelNinja...I should get the next update up tonight!

princessjv...We did get a room with a trundle bed, and it was really nice. And we did enjoy our woodsy POR room. It was perfectly comfortable, everything worked well, and the themeing is just as nice as in any other resort. You had to walk through the parking lot to get to the bus stops, but the buses came quickly...we never waited more than 15 minutes!

lol! That has happened to me in other trip reports...and especially when I look over on the Disney Dining Food Pictures thread!

jwwi...I've heard about that big AG sale, but we've never been able to get to it!

Lifelong_dreamer, mla1977, Hedy, ChrisLei, and LISAMWDW...Thanks for the all the good wishes, everybody. You're so sweet! College life can get pretty hectic, and it's nice to have the DIS to come back to!

sunny04 and razzberryblitz...Welcome!

With luck, I'll have an update tonight~

Hi Emma-

I just wanted to let you know that I love reading your reports! I already read Confessions and was so excited to find that you were working on your new one! I love that your AG dolls get to go with you. I have to leave my Molly home - my DF doesn't get it. He saw the pics of your girls in the bathing suits and he wanted to know if I was looking at strange, new porn! I told him all about the photo ops you have with your girls, and he looked at Molly on her shelf and rolled his eyes and shook his head. He's a guy and just doesn't get it!

My Nana would. Her AG Doll goes with her when she travels! And in her spare time she knits sweaters for her! (But right now she has to concentrate on my wedding gown!)

Good luck in college and I think it's awesome that you're going for engineering!
