I'm convinced this is how all vacations should start.

Drink, preferrably rum. Good company, preferabbly as Disney obsessed as you are. A quiet place, the resort of your choice.

Ahhhh.....

Now, since I'll be at CBR in October, you two are going to have to remind me again closer to time exactly where you got those nommy rum drinks! Because believe you me--Disney with no kids=consumption of nommy rum-laced anything.

Thanks! And Tink, since I made those CBR reservations today, I have had the song, "Kokomo" in my head ever since. I think it's gone, look at the reservation papers, and start humming it all over again. . .

I'm so in! And since I'm planning my own no-kids, girlfriend, surprise (to my BFF) trip in December, I'm taking notes. We're staying at OKW, but I've already written down to start with a relaxing drink, preferably with rum!

I'm having sooo much fun planning a trip that she has no idea about and that I will present her with triumphantly on her birthday, December 12. (And we'll be there 7 days later!)

That sounds awesome! Good for you.

And feel free to take notes. I do have one thing...well, I have several things to say about this vacation, but in regard to the relaxing girlfriend time...we did it up right.

Hi to both of you, new to you your TR. I'm loving it though!! You guys are so much fun. I love the banter back and forth!! Ok so I had to laugh when you mentioned Kokomo!! When I was in preschool (yes I remember back to preschool, can't remember what happened yesterday but I can remember when I was in preschool!!) my best friend at the time used to sing that song constantly, we didn't actually know all the words so we just started making stuff up!! I love how you kept it a secret, very sneaky!! I've never stayed at CBR but it seems like a nice resort!! And those drinks look amazing!! Can't wait to read more!!

And yes, we do banter very well.

I don't know whether or not to laugh or cry at the fact that you were singing that in preschool. I was so much older when that song came out.

It is a very, very nice resort. And those drinks were amazing.

A Mini Update

Hey everyone! Sorry for the slight hiatus! Tink and I are just in the process of working out who's going to write what chapters, and it's possible I may be taking over for a little bit. Once we get everything settled, I'll let you all know!

Schnazzy...Say It With Me: Schna-zzy!

When last we left our daring duo, they were daring. They were a duo.

Perhaps, they were even...a hungry duo.

You know what, forget that, we were starving! Tink and I enjoyed our room, got settled and decided to get ready for dinner. But we weren't just going to tidy up a bit, oh no. We were going to be schnazzy.

Say it with me. Schna-zzy.

I'd even bought a special dress for the occasion. No joke. TK in a dress. Not a pirate one, people. A very schnazzy dress. From...where else? Kohl's. And it was on sale! And for how good it looked on, it should have been a sin, that price. I love Kohl's. Anyway, we were getting ourselves all purdied up and although we were quite, quite early, we decided to head out. I must say, we looked quite good in all our finery.

- I love this photo of Tink. She's beautiful and radiating I am happy and relaxed.

- Something about that Mickey head with that dress seems wrong. Very, very wrong.

And if you know where we are when these photos were taken, keep it to yourself. I'm working up the element of surprise here.

We made our way over to the bus stop, and waited...not too long, I think...for the Magic Kingdom bus. From there, we took the monorail to the Grand Floridian, but not before Tink snapped a few photos.





We did a little shop/browse and I purchased a little sumpin' for a certain DISer who shall remain nameless. You know who you are, and I was so excited when I found that for you!

I wandered (with Tink LOL) over into Basin and I must say, I loved it!!! My journal says, "Can I take half the store?" And that's honestly how I felt. At this point, I was so hungry, I didn't trust myself to shop judiciously. Not in that store. Tink and I decided we would come back another time at really get our shop on.

And just so you know that I do think of you all at random moments, I looked at the Mickey head soap and immediately thought of you, CP. I could even picture in my mind the photo you posted on your trip report of that particular souvie. Nuts, huh? I'm so visual, it's amazing what triggers me.

Now, before we'd left the hotel, we decided to put our birthday buttons on our purses. Boy, did we get lots of happy birthdays, and not just from cast members, from other guests as well!

When we were leaving Basin, the CM wished us a happy birthday, and as I thanked her, I said, don't worry, we'll be back! A prevalent theme amongst guests wishing us a happy birthday was jokingly asking us if we were 18...or turning 21...again. I just laughed. Tease all you want, people. I'm celebrating my birthday with my dearest friend who's also celebrating her birthday. My dear DIS twin, Tink. It was really a wonderful feeling.

Hunger is ruling us both at this point. We're trying our best to kill time before dinner, but we're not entirely succeeding. Apparently, a Cadbury chocolate bar, some airplane snack food, and two Pina CoLavas does not sustain us.

Back onto the monorail we head to our destination. Which I will not yet reveal.

I do have to say, we tried to kill some more time in the shops in this hotel, when we spotted something so wonderful. So amazing. So awesome that it threw me into a fit of giggles, whereupon I exclaimed, "TINK! You have to take a picture of this for Jackie and tell her that her husband needs to buy it."

CP, in light of our recent MNSSHP convos, I find this to be absolutely hilarious.



So, know, my dear, that you were thought of not once, but twice this evening.

Eventually, we can't kill anymore time. Hunger has us in its evil grasp. We decide to take our chances and head over to the restaurant early in case we can get in.


Up Next - Where are we eating?
