I don't think you should have any problem. I carried around a lightweight fleece in mine, and that was adult size.

The pocket along the stap isn't huge, but it's just the right size to carry around your room key, cash, eye drops, fast passes, that kind of thing. It just makes it so easy to get to that stuff. I also love the two side pockets. There is one with a velcro closure, and that one was perfect for my sunglasses, and the other meshy one was great for a poncho or a compact umbrella.

Made our ADR's this morning -- good heavens, I wasn't that stressed out taking my college boards! I didn't get everything I wanted when I wanted, and really had to rearrange things on the fly. But I think I am done. I need to take few hours, do some actual work, and then go back and check everything. I just cannot look at it anymore.

We are going to MNSSHP on 9/29. As mentioned, all three girls are dressing up as fairies (DD's are ages 3, 8, and 13, but the 13-year-old is being a good sport about dressing up).

I cannot wait. I just can't get too pumped up right now after two hours of ADR heck.

Anyway, we're going to Disney World!

It's actually on Wednesday. Hopefully it'll go well, and I'll go to work in a good mood. Thanks for the fingers and toes...

Excellent! That will be awesome for me, not having to dig through everything else to get to it.

I have back up plans in my head for different days, so I'm hoping if we don't get something I wanted, I'll pull out of my memory something else.

Wish me luck.

I'm glad your thirteen year old is being a good sport! I know that's a tough age...I remember it.

Although, you can tell her your almost thirty something friend from the DIS would love to dress as a fairy.

Heck, I just want the cool wings.

Then, again, maybe you shouldn't tell her. I'm sure I'll seem ancient and so not cool.

You're going to love the Baggalini!!

We got it for our last trip and just loved, loved, loved it!! And my husband carried it most of the time, and thought it was very comfortable and manageable. So I hope you love it as much as we do.

Oh, thank you for your review! That's good to know, and I'm glad to hear your husband liked it as well. My husband is very much a "have backpack, will travel" kind of guy. Although I'm sure if I begged him, he'd carry the Vera for me, I think he'll feel more masculine with the black baggalini.

I was bummed about the Vera because it was such an adorable print in person. But you know what, I love my red cargo sling, so I'm lucky to have that.

Ugh. ADR day. I just wish it wasn't a day I worked. I know I can get on there at 600am (online) though, so that's what I'll do.

I know, our trips are so close and yet so far!!!! It's a big bummer to me, I would love to have met you in person.

However, it's an excellent reason to go back.

Thank you, thank you for telling us about the great deal you got on the baggalini!! I've been planning to buy one for the trip, but was having a hard time plunking down full price for it. I just ordered one in Khaki, and even found the $10 off coupon code you mentioned. You're the best!!

You're welcome!

I rarely, rarely, rarely if ever pay full price for anything. I am all about internet shopping, free shipping and returns, and coupon codes.

I'm so glad I was able to help someone else get what they wanted. And it's exciting that so many of you are excited about this bag. It really gives me high hopes!!!

"Life Is A Great Big Canvas...Throw All The Paint On It You Can."

I can't take credit for that quote, that's Danny Kaye.

A very wise, and entertaining man. Who also said, "To travel is to take a journey into yourself."

Ponder on that whilst we have the most drive by of updates.

I just have a couple of things to share. I hope you're not all groaning with the rapid fire updates, but I promise I'll make it quick.

The first custom tank has been made. And it's not something I previously discussed. But I am very excited about it.

And it wouldn't be a TK PTR without a headless shot, so here goes.



And for those of you who don't want to stare intently at my chest trying to decipher that cute design, here it is.



I'm debating when in the trip I'm going to wear this. Maybe to breakfast at Chef Mickey's. I think it'd be a hoot. I'm actually quite fond of the white background on the black tank. I think it makes it stand out a bit more.

And I have something else to show you. I didn't take a lot of photos. I hope you can tell what it is.



Yup. Those are the tie dye Mickey shirts. We've been working on them for the past two nights, separating the tasks out, and tonight we did the actual dye.

Pray for them.

Please. I'm so worried. I have to say, the boys shirts looked great during the process, but I'm a little worried about the integrity of my Mickey head.

And now that I've written that, I realize how silly that sounds.

I'm a little touch slap happy.

I think it's tie dye paint fumes.

I'm definitely going to make my Peter Pan one, and I have another one up my sleeve that makes me laugh hysterically. Whether or not everyone else finds it funny...

The shirt is adorable, and I really like it on the dark tee. It really stands out that way.

I had read a hint about the tye dyed shirts if the Mickey head doesn't "pop" enough. If you need a bit more white around them, just use one of those clorox bleach pens to outline the edge a bit.

I thought it would be a nice change from plain white.

OMG! Thank you so much for posting that!!!! That is a great idea, and I'm sure it'll help.

Jen, let me know if you want me to design one for you. I'm not on the DISigns board, but I enjoy dabbling in it.

They're still soaking right now. I hesitate to take them apart yet. I think I'll wait for DS' naptime.
