Why?

Because it's my pre trip report and I can.

And also, because given that 44 seconds of footage, and the news of the Fantasyland expansion, I am super pumped for this trip and I just want to do something fun every day until we leave. So even if I can't do a full on post, I'll still post the picture and the quote.

And you may all feel free to drool. Perhaps keep a spare towel by the keyboards so I don't get blamed for having fried your computers. You have been forewarned.







"Son, I'm Captain Jack Sparrow. Savvy?"






I'll give you all a moment.

Moment taken.....! Good golly that's one hot pirate.....

Drooling has commenced (just as long as I don't also cut a tooth like Smileybug....)

Now, on to official pre trip report business.

I love my hair. I really couldn't stop looking at it last night, running my fingers through it, the whole deal. The trip to salon was well worth it. She spent over an hour cutting my hair and styling it, and we discussed what she was doing, what products to use to achieve the same look. Honestly, even though expensive, it was totally worth it. You just can't beat that kind of service and that kind of quality, you really can't.

Anyway, the big kicker will be if I can style it myself at home. I'll let you all know how that goes later today. I do have to say, because it's so much shorter, I think it's going to take me even less time in the morning once I get the hang of it, and that's a huge plus. Anything that looks cute, like a real style, and doesn't take me time in the morning, well heck, sign me up! That and the fact that I've wanted this style for so long and never had the guts until now, well it just feels like an affirmation. In the words of Mia in the Princess Diaries (books, not film), perhaps I am on my way to self-actualization after all.
SO happy that you love it so much! I'll bet it looks great!



Quote:
I also have Realityland coming from interlibrary loan, so I'm really looking forward to reading that as well. And they didn't have a Birnbaum's guide (why ever not???) so I'll be requesting that as well.
I don't know but I"m starting to think it's a library conspiracy.... It's like if you want it, you have to buy it (or, then again, perhaps a Birnbaum conspiracy!). I love that book. It's just pure Disney and a good "fix" in between trips!


Quote:
Today, I'll be working on the bathroom (and my bedroom if I have time), which will lend itself to taking a look at our travel toiletries and seeing if we need any items to be replenished before we leave.
Little itty bitty travel sized stuff!!!!......Woo hoo!!..... I love these so much that I posted pics of my stash on my last PTR. Target and Walmart usually have big sections of bins just chock full of mini-anything you might possibly need to travel!


Quote:
Of course, my excitement factor is increasing rapidly. The closer we get to this trip, the more excited I get.

.....
I'm so excited FOR you!!! Gosh....pirates, hair, travel-size stuff, and an almost-here trip.... This has been a great post!

First, thank you SO much!

I just can't think of a better way to start my day than with a cup of cofefe

and Jack.

Sigh.

I am so happy you love your haircut! And admire your bravery for a totally new style, it must be freeing.

I'm so curious about these costumes of yours, can't wait for more details!

All in all you are BUSY! Good, cleansing, happy busy. Good things.

Oh, hello, Jack -- thanks for swaggering over to brighten my dismal school day.

TK, your new haircut sounds very fun and stylish -- can't wait to see it in person soon!

You will like those two Meg Cabot books -- fun, light, quick reads -- like fluffy, yummy cupcakes for your brain!

Ah, I am getting to the point where I simply cannot wait for our vacations to begin.

I'm glad that you like your hair cut. I'm even happier that I get to see it without a huge mickey head covering it!

Now I'm even more excited, because this is going to look totally cute when it grows out. Good point!!

Quote:
How's that for some fuzzy math? Love the daily picture and quote, but can you keep it up until the movie comes out?
Alright, everyone, you heard it here.

If I begin a thread solely devoted to this after I finish this ptr, will you all follow me there?

Quote:
Add me to the list of 21 Jump Street fans, he was beautiful then too. You'll love Realityland - that was a great read. You should also look for "Mousejunkies" by Bill Burke, it was pretty funny.
I'll have to look up Mousejunkies, thanks!

Quote:
I'm way ahead of you on the travel toiletries - mine are already packed.
Wow!

Quote:
My 5 year old packed her suitcase already. All tshirts, no bottoms and no bathing suits - that would be an interesting vacation! I'm impatiently waiting - 11 more days!


I can't get over how she packed her suitcase. I shudder to think how my son would pack his. Although I can tell you, pretty much every day now, he wants to wear a "colored" shirt. That's what he calls his Mickey tie dyes. Am I soooo lucky, or what?

By the by, I've really enjoyed chatting with you here. Do you want to plan a tentative meet?

That sure is one hot pirate.

I soooo can't wait for MNSSHP to see my DH dressed up again. Talk about drooling. Now I'll have to fend off the DIS friends we're meeting.

I am very lucky, though, my interlibrary loan is pretty quick.

No need to thank me, my dear. I'd like to pretend what I did was selfless, but to the contrary.

I love posting pictures of Jack.

It is quite freeing, but today I got a little nervous. I had some trouble styling it, since it's my first time. I think perhaps I didn't use enough root lifter. I had a fair amount of mousse going. Let me tell you, this is a whole new world for a girl who barely used hair spray. Anyway, once I figure out the product and how to blow dry it perfectly, I think I'll be okay.

Due to my frustration, however, I was able to replicate my hair to the picture I have of the actress who plays Alice Cullen...complete with headband and everything. It is so stinkin' cute.

I'm a little nervous about DS' and my mom's. I'm definitely going to need some help from DH for those.

I needed some light reads, and her books are so great for that. I've been reading these very, very heavy vampire novels, and they started to actually get to me. To the point where they put me in a bad mood. I needed some chick lit.

Me, too. I know I don't talk about it because it's a surprise, but I'm so excited about my costume! I can't wait for you guys to see it. I hope my hair is a teensy bit longer by then...it so doesn't go anymore. Although.... I just thought of something that might help. Hmmm.

You know what's funny? I use the word savvy all the time. And my mother and I will use it in normal conversation with each other. Along with aye, and do we have an accord.

Yes.

We're a touch off, but in a good way.

You live in Florida, right? If we could work in a trip to Disney, I'd consider it.

Wowsa! You are one busy little bee...err...pirate.

Your library must have a really good Disney section, my former library didn't have ANY. I had to get them ALL on inter-library loan. Pffft!

I am DYING to see your haircut. I actually got mine cut and highlighted today. I feel like a new woman! It's amazing what a little bit of pampering can do for yourself.

I'd love to meet up, I'm hoping I get to see you Sunday night at the Rose & Crown. Our ADR is for 4:50, so I might be a little too early for you.
And we are doing the Halloween party Tuesday night, so no crazy Pirates ride for me with the DIS gang. What time are you guys going to be at the GF spa? I might be able to sneak over that way, if its in the afternoon. (we are staying at the Poly, so a little walk on the beach, and I disappear for a while, maybe no one will notice.) Other than that, I don't think your non-planned plans jibed much with our "don't mess with mom's plan" plans. I'll have to go back and look again, but I'm pretty much on Mommy duty the whole week- it took me 8 years to get DH back to Disney World, I'm hoping it won't take that long again. I need to make it easy for him. But, I'll be hanging around the Rose and Crown looking for you - I may not know what your face looks like, but now I know what your hair looks like!

OKay, I just went back and looked at your plans from months ago. Are you still planning on hitting the Tambu lounge Wednesday afternoon? This might be a resort day for us, if I can convince the kids that the Volcano slide is just as good as Blizzard Beach. If thats the case, I could definately work that out.

Ah headbands. I headbands. Nothing fixes bad hair the way they do. Or at least my bad hair! I don't love the pinching behind the ears though. I am so dying to see the hair!

which one's? I am starting to get vampired (and werewolfed, shapeshiftered, telepathiced OUT!) but of course don't have the heart to tell DSD that.

TK, I am so glad that you are loving your new haircut. I so wish I could see it in person. I had my haircut like that once before and loved it. I am thinking I may do it again before my vacation.


Do you watch True Blood? If you do then did you realize that Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) is the real life son of Stellan Skarsgard who played Bootstrap Bill in POTC and he was also Bill Anderson in Mama Mia.
