Another shopping trip!

So my sister worked for Ann Taylor for a little while as a manager and I completely fell in love with their clothes. She gets an awesome discount but she's leaving their company for another so it was the last weekend I could abuse her discount. Here's the loot!








I can't tell you how much I love this dress.






This skirt but in light blue denim rather than white.

I also got a pair of distressed dark blue denim bermudas that I can't seem to find on the site.

I saved a boatload of money with my sister's discount and then also an extra 15% because my sister had me apply for the Ann Taylor credit card. I need a credit card like I need another hole in the head but the limit is low and it'll be good to have. I do love their clothes.

In other Disney news, I want to buy MNSSHP tickets but they're not online yet. What's up with that?

Awesome pre-trippie so far! I just got caught up... sounds like you are going to have an amazing trip! You and Joe are so cute and I didn't realize that he is an aspiring director... very cool! Love what you bought on your shopping trip, I am heading to the website to look at that dress for myself, it is adorable!!!

What time do you plan to make your Ohana reservation? You could always eat at Ohana (which is one of my faves, btw!) and then head out to the beach with a pineapple drink and watch the fireworks there. They can be seen really well from the beach and the music is piped in out there.

Thanks! Yes, Joe is big into movies. He's working hard on his latest project; it's his first feature length film!

I fell in love with that dress as soon as I saw it. Everything I picked up was so brightly colored, I love it all!

I think I'm going to make my Ohana reservation around 8-ish. That is a good idea! I have to wait until the park hours are out to know for definite when everything will be going on.

I look for every excuse that I can find to drink pineapples at Ohana! We were there last year towards the end of September and I think Wishes was at 9, of course it could be different this year.

I'm thinking it'll be around 9 or 10. How long does dinner usually take there? Maybe I should schedule it a little bit earlier to be on the safe side. And I love pineapples so I'm sure I'll love that drink

I think they are called a Lapu Lapu, but I can never remember for sure. They are yummy! After the first if you want another, you can order just the drink to put in your pineapple (a little cheaper this way). It took a long time to get our table at Ohana, but once we sat down I think it only took about an hour or so to eat. They bring the food out right away.

I thought we would skip Ohana on the next trip but now that I am thinking about it we have to have a reservation here!!!

I just looked it up to see if it mentioned the Lapu Lapu; it doesn't on the menu page but I'll take your word for it. The DIS does not give it a favorable review. That won't stop me from trying it though!

Cute, Cute clothes and shoes!! I especially love the dress. I've become a dress addict! I'm hoping the weather will be super nice and I can wear dresses at Disney some nights!

I'm hoping for near 90 during the day and 70s at night. I'll take all the hot weather I can get because the last time I was down in Orlando, there was a cold front. 50 degree weather all week, 60 if I was lucky!

And I love, love, love that dress!!!!

MNSSHP and Chef's de France

I just got our MNSSHP tickets for 9/22! I'm so excited! I've heard this party is an awesome time! I was thinking about dressing up but I don't think I have the time or patience to make a costume. I definitely want some Halloween themed Mickey ears though!

On a completely different topic, has anyone ever eaten at Chefs de France? I'm not very big on French food (they eat snails for goodness sake!) but I'm a big fan of Ratatouille and really would like to see Remy. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: I just saw that Remy will only be there until September 5. I'm gonna just miss him!

YAY!!! MNSSHP is a lot of fun. I went in 2006. I didn't dress up...just wore orange and black layered t's. You'll have so much fun. The parade is just so cute!

Have you been to MVMCP or P&PP? I had a blast at both of those but I hear MNSSHP is the best of all 3. I'm planning on doing something like that too: making Halloween shirts or wearing Halloween colors. Plus my ears!
