I have some new purchases that I will post tommoro night,

if anyone gets a chance please check out this link, It is from Britain's got Talent and this group were on Saturday night past. Definitely gave me one of those tingly goosebump moments! I loved the Wolfe family link from Nikki's trip report and even though this isn't at all Disney related thought I'd share probably one of the most amazing talent's i've ever seen...

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

Just a quick question. I see you are an irish dance teacher, and are going to DW right around the 4th. The Dolphin is booked so we are staying at the swan because of a dance competition. Is this why you are going? If so how big is this thing?

I can answer part of your question. The Nationals for Irish dance are being held at the Swan and Dolphin at that time. If people don't stay at either of the hotels, they're charged $50 at the door. So....pretty much everyone competing will be staying at those hotels. Get ready for lots of dancing and lots of curly hair!

Love your countdown calendar! I like the notepad at the top, ripping off the days as they go by is always more fun

Thanks ladies! I'm pleased with it for a first attempt! we really did have a fun evening although my dad was baffled that we were sitting in the house making a calendar for fun! he's a very busy outdoors person!

Glad you liked it! I really hope they win the overall competition! Cirque...on my to-do list!

Hi, I didn't even know the American National C'ships were on until Meghan (post below) let me know...the type of dancing I do in Ireland is basically the same but more traditional in that we are not allowed wigs, faketan, makeup on U13's etc...and a few other small differences, but I am hoping to drop by and see some of the team dancing which appears to be on Monday 5th...

would you be interested in seeing the dancing or just wondering about busy-ness/crowd levels?

That's a stiff cover charge!!! thanks for the info, will need to add that to the budget if we can find time to drop by! but clashes with our Magic Kingdom day so not sure of the practicalities yet!

This is my first countdown calendar and would have loved the mickey heads but we don't have Home depot and I wasn't about to start cutting out 100 mickey heads! but as you say ripping off the days will be fun!

The glue and glitter were flowing a little too freely, as can be seen on the ceiling shot! but was definitely a fun evening! plus cutting and sticking makes me feel like i'm back in school!

Heading off on Saturday for a hen party in Glasgow, Scotland...we are going a tour on a party bus on Saturday night which involves entertainment and games on a doubledecker bus and stops at 4 different bars and nightclubs and a free shot in each one! and on Sunday its cocktails in TGI Fridays! and lots of shopping and maybe spa time in between, so I will be MIA all weekend!

Got some nice items for the hen weekend which thought would post up...








Me and my sister had a lovely day shopping in Belfast on Sunday and as well as some hen stuff attire I also got some new holiday items!!!

The Havainna's as per the advice of previous posts (thanks for all the footwear comments!), coudn't find Reef's so my choice was made a bit easier! thought white would get dirty too easily, and red mightn't match all my pink items so went with these...




Got a new bikini, can never have too many of those! don't know how practical a bikini will be in wet n' wild etc will prob need to get a new swimsuit too!




These were on special offer and my curly mop will definitely need all these in the Florida heat! The Venus is in case I get so frustrated I just decide to shave it all off!


My first pair of shorts this year



They should go nicely with my mum's wee surprise for trying hard in my exams...




This is to match my a striped red and white tank and was thinking might try and find a sailor mickey or minnie and stick them on?




And me and mum have loved reading through these in the past week, such nice bedtime reading material! love the fact that my mum is as obsessed as I am!

Love all of your purchases! Everything is so cute!! It sounds like you're going to have an exciting weekend. Enjoy!

I have the UG for 2010 adn the Hidden Magic book too. They are both great!

The Nationals for Irish dance are being held from July 3rd-July 7th. I actually just looked at their website and there is a $100 fee per person if you're not staying at the Swan/Dolphin (which is now sold out). It looks like they had to set aside rooms at the YC/BC, CSR and the BWI for competitors as well. I don't think you'll want to stop by and watch!
