So get some fastpasses if you can!



I hope you have a great trip!!!!


I hope you are having a fabulous time at DL Cristabel! I would so love to be able to go so often like you now get to do!



What an absolutely AWFUL dream I hope you have a great time and only have wonderfully magical things happen! Be sure to take lots of pics!

Sarah, I miss you! I can't wait to see you, too!

I wanted to wish everyone who is heading to DLR soon a GREAT visit! I'm missing it like crazy. It doesn't help that my dh plays visionsfantastic radio 24/7 on the computer.

So, I've been dreaming and scheming about a way to surprise my family with a WDW trip in January. I'd give it to the kids as their Christmas gift (we normally do one large family gift, which is normally a trip to DLR). Anyway, just in the beginning stages of daydreaming, really, but was curious of any of our DVC members could talk to me about the idea of renting points and how that all works. Since there are 5 in my family, and I don't want to be limited to ASM, I'm thinking a DVC property, might be the way to go??

Any thoughts or advice would be very much appreciated!

Love to all! Hope you all have a great Sunday.
Tyrae, my sister's BF, is trying to surprise Diana with a trip to WDW. I would also love some information on renting points from one of our DVC owners. It would be cheaper for all of us to stay in a studio. It would be Tyrae, Diana, myself and hopefully add one more person to even out the bunch.

Hello everyone.
We had a great time at Disneyland today. The crowds were very low for a summer weekend. The longest line we waited in was for Peter Pan, which was 20 minutes, which we rode in the late afternoon! The only thing was it was unbearably hot! SO HOT.

I bought two more vinylmations and they are very cute!

I also bought a pumpkin spice cupcake with orange frosting. YUM. I'm actually eating it right now. So delicious!

It's late and I'm tired. I'm going to try to do some reading for class tomorrow and then go to bed.

Hi Ladies,

I made 2 pillows for the couch that I moved to my study room. I made another monster but put it on a green pillow. Here is a red pillow I made to go with it:

Tina, that is wonderful! I can't even imagine estimating for that kind of crowd. And your mom sounds like a dynamo.

Anyone remember how many days Capri is going to be at DL?

I was so happy that we sold so many sandwiches, because I was a little nervous that people wouldn't come out in the extreme heat. But I was also a little bummed that I didn't purchase more product, because we could have sold probably 300 more sandwiches today. The problem is that the out of pocket expenses before the event are huge, and last year I had 300 pieces of chicken that didn't sell. So it's really a guessing game as to how much to purchase.

Tina, your mom rocks! What an awesome lady. Is she planning on coming to the Feb trip? Woo hoo on your success this weekend. Didja save a sammie for me? Congratulations! Hope you get some time to recover and rest up this week.

I feel the same way! It is hard to keep up right now. I hope your WDW trip works out. You will have to share all your new found knowledge once you have it, because I am going to be about 2-3 years behind you

Wow! You are amazing. I have done some of those festivals when I did restaurant work years ago. It is crazy!

Good Morning to everyone else. Hope you have a great day. We have our ZipRealty Family bbq today and are having brisket from a local bbq company. I am so ready for it after reading Dave's recipe. Hope it is half as good as Dave's sounds. My darn 6 year old remembers that I told him I would take him to Chuckee Cheese before summer was over and darn if we don't only have 2 days, so guess where I will be going soon. I really hate that place.

Morning all! Well Capri I am sure you won't see this but I am so happy for you and hope you are having a GREAT time! That was a scary dream. I do stuff like that all the time but I am sure it will all be just fine! Go and have a blast and bring back lots of pics!!

Cristabel glad you had fun yesterday! Sounds like a perfect day to go except for the weather!

Sara that is great news that you have all your money almost saved. Wish I could say the same. I still have to buy Shane and the girls passes for Oct!! I am waiting till right before we go though cuz we are still broke from D.C.! Haven't even THOUGHT about Feb yet!

The verdict is STILL out about tonight. I had a pretty good day all day yesterday and then a bad night again so I am really torn. Shane is afraid if I go and then I start feeling bad he doesn't want us ALL to have to leave. He told me I should maybe even take my own car but of course the place we are going is an HOUR a way from our house so like I REALLY want to have to drive MYSELF home if I start feeling bad for a whole hour! NOT! Dang it I wish it was at our local place that was close and I wish it wasn't outside and 4 bands! It would be SO much easier! UGH!

And Dawn I agree I would LOVE not to have stress but in this house it is practically impossible. Since Lynn has come back it is constantly around and with my mental issues telling someone like me NOT to stress is like telling a tree not to be brown. It is not in my nature. That is a big part of my disorder is Anxiety and even though I take medication I just CAN'T not stress no matter how hard I try. And Shane is really bad about NOT caring. He just blows stuff over and let's stuff go and that drives someone like me nuts. I have asked him to deal with my doctor bills so I didn't HAVE to get stressed about it and he did a few times but then he told me he didn't have time to deal with it anymore and I needed to do it!

And as far as Lynn goes it is a constant thing. She is doing something practically daily that stresses BOTH of us out. Most of the time I try to just ignore it but this REALLY ticked me off because the dental people or the doctors or whatever call ME not Shane cuz I am the contact person and he claims he can't deal with it cuz he is "too busy".

So unfortunately I am stuck with it.

But anyway I know what you mean and believe me I want nothing more than to have the next few months go by. February is more exciting to me for more than just the trip Lynn turns 18 and she will be off probation and that means she can move on! Stress over!

Anyway enough of that. As of right now I am hurting so I am just going to wait and see how the rest of the day goes. IF I feel better during the day I may try it but it is not looking very promising.

Anyway I hope everyone else has a good day!!

Take care and talk later!

Nickelback was AWESOME!!!!!!
Then I went to a bar and met a few of the band members from
Saving Abel. It was a great night! They sang happy birthday to my
friend Amber. Then I worked last night.
I am just pooped!!

Dawn ~ Hope you had a good weekend!

Deb ~ Sounds like the concert, and bar time afterward, totally rocked!!

Rochelle ~ Cute pillows. You are so creative.

Kelly ~ Hang in there hon. Hope the hurting stops soon.

Tina ~ Way to go on selling all the sammies, and your mom sounds like such a wonderful person.

Tracey ~ I'll take your DS to Chuck E Cheese for ya! I don't mind it there. Have fun at the BBQ.

Cristabel ~ OMG, your cupcake sounds yummy!!!

Donna ~ How are you feeling??

Michelle ~ Glad to hear your computer is back on the mend so you can get on more often.

January ~ Saw this and thought of you!!! lol Where you at girl????

Everyone else, I hope you are all having a wonderful start to your Monday. Take care. Talk to you soon.

**Oh, is anyone interested in starting the Halloween sign ups early? I was going to wait until this Friday, but if anyone would like me to start them sooner, say the word. That way, we can get names sooner and have more shopping time. It's up to you.

OK, I realize I already mentioned in my previous post about how good this sounds, but darn it the more I think about it, the more my mouth drools!!!!!

I cannot express how much I wish our stupid weather would cool down so I can start some yummy Fall baking!!! I want my kitchen to be filled with the scents of pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

But we have days and days, maybe weeks, of triple digit temps in the forecast, so all that baking will have to wait.

Anyway, hope it was as good as it sounds Cristabel!!
