Great pics from Chefs, we are trying it for the first time in September. Bummer that we'll be missing Remy since he's not in the restaurant after 6:00 pm.

I'll keep an eye out for Andreas though

I wish Bunny was still available, I saw your photo of him before and hoped to find him in September. I have a thing for stuffed bunnies

LL, I was just thinking of you and your trip report title on the way back from DTD tonight. I haven't told you how much I like it! Quotes from Pooh are always so unique and charming. I love them!
Pure genius on your part......

So let me get this straight. You met my future husband and didn't get a picture? I will have to look for him in September!

Spaceship Earth pancakes. I love those silly things that just make you crack up for no reason.

Ugh about the rain. It looks so nice and cozy in Chefs. Isn't the croque monsieur delish? Yum-o. Wish I had one now. I made the onion soup at home a few weeks back. Not as good but still yummy!!

Sorry about the bunny.

Looking forward to more!!

On behalf of Canadians all across this great Country I say "Thank You!" I saw the O Canada show for the first time in January and I even felt more patriotic than I had in a really long time! We ended up buying the Four Parks, one world Cd which includes the song and I tear up every time I listen to it!
Yes, that is exactly how I felt with meeting Jen! I bought the Four Parks, One World CD and I am loving it!

AND the room looks great! Glad the travel part went off well, looking forward to hearing about the pins, if they came back, etc., and just loved reading about Chef's! We have lunch there, too! Can't wait!

Also laughed that so many readers were already counting light fixture photos!!!!

We are determined!

Your first day is shaping up despite the rain!!!!
Oh yes, the pin story is coming up in the next installment or the one after that!

I am ALMOST done uploading my pictures and once they are all uploaded I am going to count them. I'm interested to see how many I took.

I am really hoping to read a few more updates before I leave, cause I know I will never catch up again when I get home!
I am planning to do another update today and maybe one tomorrow.

I was a little worried about the food but it was very good and very yummy. I think they'd have something even for the pickiest eaters!
Thanks on the title, I am quite fond of it.

I love your light fixtures, the photos are brilliant!

How disappointing about the bunny... I will share my new thought on toys, I am a pack rat - I save everything and anything that touches my heart or has a memory attached. I also do not like to throw anything out because I or someone paid good hard earned dollars for it. Well as I have moved there has been a need to scale down. I now take pictures of things I at one point couldn't part with. I now have the memory locked up in that photo. It's nice that you have the photo and that can still speak to you the way the little bunny did.

I have many pictures of Disney toys I'd love to have but couldn't justify (for example French Minnie - I love her little pink beret!) If I had the pic available here I'd post it.

Anyhooooo - thank you again for sharing your trip with us ! Loving it!!
Oh, I love your theory on the pictures of things you love. That is a wonderful way to think of it! I am not a pack rat so that is a good solution for me!

I'm so sorry your beloved bathrobed bunny was no where to be found.

Remy looks so cool!
He was cool. I'm almost over the bunny not being there but shhhh don't tell Marc.

Chef's was very yummy. I highly recommend it for lunch! I'm sure dinner would be delish too.

You are welcome for being so quick. Even though I said I was going to milk this out, I find myself too excited to go slow.

I am so glad you like it. I really do. I like to have my titles be around Disney movies and such.

I know! I feel like such a failure. I should have asked him to pose with Jen. You must look for him and immediately propose. Dangle that green card in front of him.

Yes! That is the name of it! Thank you for that. You made the onion soup? Marc makes a mean french onion soup maybe I will put that on the menus for our Disney Dinner!

The Light Fixture Challenge: Results!

So I have spent my afternoon counting light fixture pictures. I counted twice so I know I am accurate.

To recap, these are the guesses.

Charleston Princess: 153

2xcited2sleep: 260

pooh'smate: 223

IluvXU: 212

NotSoEvilStepmother: 316

Millie12591: 215

MinnieNurse: 97

Jennifer48: 315

princess&her4princes: 117

MaryAz: 189

cjackearl: 178

addictedtothemouse: 281

Diamondintheruff: 181

If U Had Wings: 288

MEK: 150

Tnkrbelle565: 123

wigdoutdismom: 111

brookelizabeth: 368

Happydog: 188

GusGus (Marc):79

jenjolt: 134

kschafer: 227

trixiequilts: 413

roxychica7: 152

belle8306: 321

The rules were whoever had the closest guess WITHOUT going over the number of light fixture photos taken. Make sense? I hope so because everytime I start to overthink it, I get confused. Also it was the number of pictures taken not how many different light fixtures I photographed. I did not count Jen's light fixture photos because she took those on her own. I did count Mom's light fixture photos because I either took them or told her to take them so that counts.

I didn't count pictures as such as this one....because the purpose of the photograph wasn't the light fixture.


But I did count this photo because clearly the focus of the picture is the light fixture.


The Grand Total of Light Fixtures Photos I took were.....

193!!

The winner is.......


MaryAz with her guess of 189!!


If you PM me your address, I have a little prize for you!

I have to say....I'm actually surprised I didn't take more.

Yay! Congrats to the winner!! Wow, 193 is still a lot, but I wonder how many light fixtures are actually in Disney...now that would be a heck of a challenge!

Wow. 193 pictures. And that is when hampered by rain and foot trouble. Will you be posting all 193? And does the fact that you've counted mean that your photos are all organized and that you're ready to let the updates rip?

Wow....What impresses me most is not that your took 193 pictures of light fixtures, but that you actually took the time to count them all so soon after your return. Pretty impressive and executed like a true Disney fanatic!
