An Interview with the Vacationers



That's me and DH at my birthday dinner.

Q: So what do you do for a living?

A: Well, I am a Nanny and I love my job. I consider myself a SAHM in-training! I have my degree in Early Childhood Education but after 4 years of school and a short time spent teaching, I decided the education field wasn't for me. Oops!

DH works as a Design Analyst for a insurance software company. He is also going to school part-time for his MBA and will graduate in December of this year!

Q: What do you enjoy to do in your free time?

A: My main hobbies are scrapbooking, vacation planning, and reading. I also enjoy cooking and baking, watching movies, and I have recently begun a adventure in sewing (more on that in my GAD project).

DH loves video games. He is a Nintendo loyal. He even recently began a blog about his adventures while playing. He doesn't have much free time between working full time and taking classes and any free time he has is usually spent playing the Wii. I've never met anyone as good at playing video games as him but then again, he has had 20+ years of practice.

We Booked the Trip!



I was over on the CSR board today and saw 2 posts about CSR being booked for the times they were wanting to go. I wasn't taking ANY chances! I called and they only had king rooms available but that's exactly what I wanted so . The CM made it seem like there weren't very many rooms left at all! Phew!

DH walked in the door from work while I was on the phone with Disney and I quietly whispered to him that I was booking our trip and he got a big smile on his face! Oh the reasons why I love him...

Disney actually had a fantastic deal on the airfare. It was $40.00 less than what I saw on AirTran's website. Plus, because I purchased Trip Insurance as well, if we need to cancel or reschedule the trip because of the weather (which can be unpredictable at that time) it is covered! Plus, if a special comes out (I.E. FREE Dining, it can still be applied! )

Now, I have just a little over a month to get my ADR's in place. April 5 is my 180 mark! Any suggestions would be wonderful!! I have many places in mind already and I will be posting my selections as the time draws nearer.

Thanks and Thank You! I saw pictures of your baby boy and he is so adorable I showed a few of your favorites to my DH and he said "Awwww". You are so close to your trip, I am excited to hear how it goes!

I just thought I would share a quick story. This morning we met DH's parents and aunt & uncle for breakfast. We told them that we were going to Disney again in October and my DFIL just shook his head and said "Why don't you go to Disneyland or something?" He just DOESN"T understand! I did say "...but we are going to Michigan in June!" I don't want to have to explain myself. No one in my family has the Disney Bug like I do, at least I DIS!

Oooh! I have recently just discovered PTRs and TRs and needless to say - I'm hooked! We are probably going in October as well, so your title caught my attention for sure! We will be traveling with my cousin and her family as well, so as soon as I read your first entry, well, I knew we'd have a lot in common - now if I could just nail them all down with dates, we could book! We are soooo hoping for Free Dining to come around as well, that would be awesome.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks! When I first found out about the DIS, I went BONKERS! Free Dining would be amazing! It just ends up being the best deal. The percentage off the room would be great but you can't beat FREE food!

I'm rooting for you to get some dates set! GO girl!

P.S. Epcot is my favorite too! I can't wait for Food & Wine Festival!

Grrr, isn't that frustrating when people say that? My grandparents used to say that all the time..."you're going to Disney World AGAIN? Don't you get sick of it?" Ummm, no!

Thanks for stopping by! I know! I don't feel I should have to explain myself. It's something I enjoy doing, I look forward to it and I enjoy every minute of my time when I am there!

P.S. The WDW shirt your parents and sister picked up for you on their trip is the same shirt I bought for DH for Christmas! Also, read my next post. Thanks!
