Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

Ugh, I bet the wind was not good for flying!

Glad you like the TR so far! I hope your trip went well.

I love POP's new room, it looks great!!

That was sweet of your Dad to call ahead!

I love seeing the gates too. I was singing and what-not. Fiance was ready to get out of the car.

The new rooms are so nice!

Well, you have me sold on the new rooms at POP. I was trying to decide whether or not my next solo trip would be worth moderate prices (since I literally only sleep in the room--on the go the rest of the time). You convinced me. I guess I'll pay for a preferred room, though.

Hey Girl! I'm here!! I can't believe you've already updated so much--and you've only been home a few days! What a great start. Your bed on the way down looks SUPER comfy. And it's awesome that yall stuck with eating more healthy and things like that! I can tell that yall both look thinner--esp that pic of your Fiance outside the room! Good job! That's so sweet that your dad called and told them you were just recently engaged--what a good surprise! I can't wait to hear all about your trip!!

We stayed at Pop last month in the 70's section, but didn't get a refurbished room. It looks awesome! I'm excited that you are heading to MK next

LOL No, we were just really antsy to get there! We barely stopped along the way.

The room was nice!

Hey don't make fun of my 20 pics of the bus!

It was definately cold Sunday night!

Hey girl! Of course I've been updating! I'm going through Disney withdrawals and writing this helps keep me sane.

Aw thanks. Eating different has really helped. We also spend time using our Wii Fit Plus we got for Christmas!

It was a great surprise! There's more of them coming up!

I love driving under the WDW arch! It makes the trip so real. How awesome that you got a refurbed room at Pop. I'm hoping that they're all finished by Sept when we stay there again. I love the new bedspreads and the privacy curtain in front of the sink. The new tvs are awesome, but I think I'm going to miss the old tv stand/dresser. There were more shelves and the drawers were bigger. I'm sure it will still be fine though.

I love your "Just Engaged" buttons. So cute! Aren't the bus stops at Pop the greatest? I'm looking forward to reading about your first day at MK!

Yay! You guys made it!!!
That is the best feeling to drive through those arches!!!

Yikes 43 miles of construction...I will need to make a note of this since I am sure it will still be going on by the time we leave!

The engagement pins are adorable! I can't wait to hear about the other surprises you got!!

And the rooms at Pop look really nice! I never knew!

Great TR so far. I'm curious to see how it all turns out for you b/c I know several of my friends were there last week celebrating Spring Break and they said it was SUPER CROWDED.

Congrats on the engagement, too, by the way. You guys make a cute couple...

I'm always bouncing in my seat when we pass under the arch. The girls fight over who has to sit next to me when we get there because on our very first trip DD(15) was next to me and I grabbed her arm in my excitement and accidentally pinched her.
We always go to MK first.

Ok girl, just re-read the update so I could see the pictures...much better than on my phone!

I loveeeee all the Pop pictures...makes me so excited to stay there in July!! What are your feelings on Pop vs. a deluxe? Was it like culture shock?

Of course you went to the MK first! Can't wait for more
