Reasons he's not grumpy this time:

- It's just our family of four this time (last time was a GG with all my in-laws - his family; which was fine with me, but not so much fine with him). My best friend, her fiance and my adorable goddaughter may be joining us we hope, but we have travelled with them before in Europe and we travel very well together

- The money for this trip was his gift to me for our 15th anniversary in December 2008 (because I was whining about going on vacation )

- We'll be able to do what we want, how we want, when we want this time. THAT is a huge part of his non-grumpiness, I'm sure

- We had a lot of fun last year at WDW. We loved the weather, loved the parks, loved the hotel and just generally had a great time

Trust me, if MY dh can be "ungrumpified", your dh can become a happy camper - I promise!

We're actually going to WDW in the first week of May. Our June trip was supposed to be to Disneyland but that's been postponed for now because of changing conference dates.

I know what you mean about pictures being like pulling teeth. It took a lot of convincing to get my brother to be in the photos... PLUS he was really sick on the day of the session so he got a gold star for being such a good sport! Then we let him go back to the Poly and sleep on a hammock until we had to leave.

What a wonderful anniversary gift!! When is your anniversary? When is your trip? Ha, so many questions! You should start a PTR! It's really fun, and quite addictive once you get going.

I guess I don't really blame him for being grumpy about traveling w/ other people. I really enjoy going w/ a few number of people, otherwise it gets to be such a hassle in attempting to please everyone -- especially when they insist you all stay together like my family does. DH has already stated he refuses to go back to WDW w/ my family. I don't mind, b/c ITA!!! It's so difficult to find compatible traveling companions. I hope your best friend and her family will be able to come along. That sounds like fun!

I'll have to check out the Passporter the next time I'm at the bookstore. I absolutely love spending countless of hours pouring over the WDW travel books. It's such a fun waste of time!

Oh no, I hadn't seen that you pp your DL trip. I'm heading over to your PTR now to get up to speed. Bummer! But, yay that your WDW is a little sooner than I thought.

Aw, your poor brother. Being sick at WDW would be awful! But what a trooper. I saw some of your session pics on your PTR and they turned out really well. I wish I could convince Aaron to do that. Hmmm...maybe some day?

Oh, and sleeping on a hammock at the Poly sounds REALLY good right about now...stupid Mondays!!

Diet Update...

Weekly Weight Loss: 2 lbs
Total Weight Loss: 4 lbs
Days Spent Exercising: 3

I am really fortunate that I lost 2 pounds this week. I was doing really well at the start of the week. The weather was really nice, and we were able to FINALLY go outside and walk on our favorite trail. It much more enjoyable than walking the track at the YMCA. We walked about 4 miles on Monday and then on Tuesday. Unfortunately, the weather turned icky by Wednesday and we didn't workout again until Sunday night. Whoops! Not to mention, I kind of gorged myself on Valentine's Day. I fell off the wagon and ate Wendy's, which kind of made me sick and I couldn't even finish it. For dinner, we went to Carrabba's and I ate WAY too much there. Oh, it was so good though!! I still have managed to just drink 12 oz of Dr. Pepper per day. So, that's something -- right? I'm really hoping I can stay focused this week.

Happy Valentine's Day

I'm not really a big fan of Valentine's Day -- for several reasons. I don't really think that there needs to be one day that we devote to showing that we love our significant other. That should be done EVERY day. Although, I must admit I really enjoy getting gifts from Aaron on V-Day.

It's also a difficult time of year for me and my family. My Dad passed away six years ago last Thursday (2/12). The first V-Day Aaron and I ever spent together was at a funeral home, at my Dad's viewing. Needless to say, it's a hard time to deal with -- regardless of the years that have past.

Aaron has always been very supportive in making the day special, without going over the top. This is something I really appreciate, especially as I find myself getting grumpy over during this time. We decided to spend the day up in Indianapolis. We went to the "Half Price Bookstore" -- which we love. Aaron found a lot of great deals, me...not so much. We had dinner at Carrabba's, which is our favorite Italian restaurant. Mmm, so good! We also did a bit more shopping and came home to watch "V for Vendetta".

He also decided to feed my pin addiction this year! He got me five different pins, which I really enjoyed. I'm always impressed b/c he really acts like he hates all things Disney, yet he did such a great job picking these out!











He also got me some flowers -- Gerber Daisies are my favorite!

Yes, it really was an amazing anniversary gift! I woke up to a bottle of my favourite champagne surrounded by cash in the middle of the kitchen table with a chocolate rose (that Bernard Callebaut store is just too darn close lol). I just sort of looked at it, then asked him what store he robbed After he stopped laughing, he told me that the money was for me to plan a vacation again - because I had so much fun planning and enjoying the vacation last time. Oh, our anniversary is December 28 and that was our 15th

As for a PTR, I think I'd rather do a TR, but I've never done one before and some of the TRs I've read (including yours) are very well-written! It's a bit intimidating to think about writing one

Yes, the "staying all together in one big lump o' people" thing got old quickly We had the best time the last two days of the vacation - when we simply told everyone which park we were going to and then we just went there without waiting kwim?

Thank you, yes, I hope they will be able to join us too - we miss them, they live WAY too far away (just outside of London, UK)

Check it out, it's neat! I really like all the pockets at the back and the way they've organized the restaurant and ride information - very easy to reference!

to you for this sad time of year. to your dh for being able to cheer you up some with his thoughtful gifts.

We don't "do" Valentine's Day - at all LOL We celebrate any other day BUT V-Day - yeah, we're rebellious like that

Great job on the diet!!

I'm sorry to hear about your February story; that's so sweet that he's so supportive, though. What a fab guy to buy you those pins!!

Since you seem to be my top pin collecting friend, can you rec anywhere to get an inexpensive lanyard? I need one for DF; I found Belle and Cinderella lanyards yesterday for DM & myself..for $1.00 at Michael's!! DH already has one, so I need to find a good price on one for DF...

Wow, what a great and funny way to present the gift! I would have thrown the money in our bed and rolled in it a few times. I totally would, too. Congrats on celebrating your 15th anniversary!! Aaron and I are planning to celebrate our 3rd in June.

Thanks for the compliments. This is actually my second attempt at a PTR. I started one for our October trip, and then just forgot about it. Now, I've gotten sucked in. Plus, I love to write and it's kind of like an escape for me. You should try it, or at least do a TR. You will already have at least one reader in me!

YES! It really gets old...and frustrating. My biggest complaint is slow walking. I walk at an obscene pace while I'm at WDW. So, I'm constantly having to stop and wait for everyone. It drives me nuts. I know, I need to be more patient and calm about it. But really, it annoys me!

Oh wow, I thought I had it bad because my best friend lives in Utah (I'm in Indiana). How did you guys meet? I really hope it works out for you guys. What a fun trip that would be!

Ooh, I like the idea of the pockets. I really love the idea of being organized. Unfortunately, I'm not so big on the practice of it.

Thank you!! It's something that I assumed would get easier to deal with as time progresses. However, it has not. I think you just learn to cope with it in better ways and do the best you can to handle it. There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss him.

HA! I kind of like the rebellion of it. But, if celebrating it means DH will get me pins...well, I kind of want to go along with it.

Thanks!!! It's been hard, but I'm determined.

Yeah, February definitely became a difficult month 6 years ago. But, DH does a wonderful job in supporting me and helping me get through it. My sister actually came over on Thursday and we watched "Bachelor Mother" together and ate take-out. It was a nice way to spend the evening.

You know, I still use the same lanyard that I got when I first started trading (2007 - not too long ago). I always talk about how I'm going to get a new one, but I never do. I've seen non-Disney ones on eBay for a decent price. But, I don't think you'll be able to beat $1 b/c of shipping. Are you going to use it for trading?

I thought about rolling around in it, then realized that I'd be laughing so loudly I would've woken our children a bit too early An early congratulations to you and Aaron

Oh yes, the slow walking bugged me too Luckily, my boys walk as quickly as I do - we walk together quite often and they've just grown up walking quickly thanks to me Now, dh on the other hand, well he's just learnt over the years that he needs to catch up to us

What is "Bachelor Mother?" I haven't heard of that movie!

I'm just using the lanyards for our DIS board lime green Mickey heads. I'm doing my best to wait up for pin trading after law school; too pricey for me right now and I know I'd be addicted quickly!

Hugs... I'm sorry Valentine's is so rough for you.

I absolutely LOVE the Half Price Bookstore though! I'm a huge reader and growing up my mom used to let me pick out a book every time we went. And that's so sweet of your DH to get those pins for you. The Happy Easter one is soooo cute!

That's so funny! I can just imagine if you woke your kids up to you rolling around in a bunch of money. "Mommy, where did you get ALL that money? And why are you rolling around in it?!?"

It definitely sounds like you got the better end of that situation! How old is your goddaughter? My BFF is having a little girl in July, and I can't wait until we can all plan a trip to Disney together. It will be so fun!

You'll have to let me know how it works for you. Right now, I'm just using a folder to keep all my stuff together. I have a lot of stuff on my computer, but I'm more of an electric copy type of gal -- until the trip rolls around of course. Although, all I have taken care of is our hotel. We don't do ADRs so it makes things a bit easier to deal with.

"Bachelor Mother" is an older move with David Niven and Ginger Rogers. She finds this baby on a door step and everyone believes the baby is hers. And of course, David Niven plays the love interest. I had never seen it before, but now it's one of my favorites! I have a love for old movies. My all-time favorite is "It's a Wonderful Life". I love anything with Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Katharine Hepburn, etc...My boss likes to joke that I'm a 60 year old trapped in a 26 year old's body.

Oh, cool! I think I might try the lime green Mickey head thing too. After all, I've become OBSESSED with DIS as of late. You should check eBay, they had a bunch of different types of lanyards that should work for DF. I saw a bunch for $1, but I didn't notice the shipping cost.

You are VERY smart to not get involved in pin trading until after law school. It's extremely addictive. I'm a total junkie!!

Thank you! I'm so glad that I have Aaron in my life. He really does provide me with such strength and support -- even when I'm not so nice. Which is hardly ever, b/c I'm really a wonderful person. And deeply sarcastic too.

What kind of books do you read? Isn't that store great?! You can find some really amazing deals there. I snagged a copy of "Gone with the Wind" for only $1! I also love looking at their history section.

Budget

It's about time I posted our (tentative) budget. As a pin trader, I'm sure this is bound to change. But, it's a good place to start.

LODGING = $332.16
Pop Century (standard) - $55.36*6 nights = $332.16

AIRFARE = $360.00 (projected)
Hoping to get a great deal with Southwest.

RENTAL CAR = $150.00 (projected)
Again, hoping for a great code through Mousesavers.com.

TICKETS = $471.00
All tickets will be purchased on UnderCoverTourist.com, unless UO comes out w/ a great deal (like the $84.95 one two years ago).

WDW
We're currently debating on two types of tickets for Aaron. I'm not sure if we want non-expiring days for him.
6 day park hopper = $272.00
6 day park hopper w/ no expiration = $348.00

Universal Orlando
2 Park Unlimited Admission - $99.95*2 = $199.00
