Well, whether I get the Photopass CD or not (right now, I'm leaning toward not), I'll have my camera, too, so we can just annoy each other with our cameras

It got a bit better. I spent four hours () last night watching a documentary about the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, and then another two on the bonus features I'm a huge Freddy fan, so that made me happy. I also made cake yesterday

I know, I can't wait! These eleven and a half weeks are going to kill me with impatience

Yeah I definitely need to see Hallowishes! It's villain themed, right? I'll probably love it, I LOVE the villains!!! I love Halloween, almost as much as Christmas, I really hope we get to go in October next year!
I forgot to send you a PM about it last night, so I'll do it in just a minute You may want to look into the nursing homes around your area and see if any of them have a free program linked to employment with their facility. That's how I got started, because I just didn't have the money to pay for the class at the community college near my house. But yeah, I'll send you a PM

Yes, it's villain-themed You can look it up on YouTube if you like, but it's just not the same, you know? None of their fireworks shows on YouTube are like watching them in person I hope you guys do, too!

I definitely want to eat there on my next trip! I love the Patina Group, they have my favorite restaurants in LA/OC, Vegas, I just read the review from Jack at allears.net and it sounds wonderful!

I really don't know. I looked at their menu and didn't see anything that really grabbed my attention, so I'm not sure yet We'll see

75 more days!

My airfare has gone up $80 in the last couple of weeks. Southwest is advertising a sale from Chicago to Florida cities, but I don't think they've updated the pricing yet, since it was still the same. I'm hoping it'll go down, either through a sale or a ding fare, as I can't afford $580 for my airfare. That's over half of the cost of my whole payment to Disney

In other news, I got the bags I ordered. I took a picture the day they came so I could post it, but I forgot.


The purple one is my park bag and the black and white one is my laptop bag. I'm very happy with my laptop bag, and I'm going to bring a small backpack with to the parks in case I get tired of the tote bag.


And this is the bath and body stuff I've picked up for the trip (and a random Netflix movie). The black net thing is a laundry bag. I don't plan on doing laundry while I'm there, but it'll come in handy to keep my things separated after I've worn them. It's body wash, shampoo/conditioner, hand soap, deodorant, laundry bag, loofah, toothpaste, and toothbrush, all from Dollar Tree

I also picked up some fabric to make a skirt for a Halloween costume. I'm going to make it sometime in the next couple of weeks, and will buy a couple things for it, but that's about it.

Aside from that, nothing much is happening in terms of my trip. Since Disney put up pricing for 2011 packages, my best friend and I looked at what we want to do for next year. We're planning on going down on Halloween and staying until the day after the first MVMCP, as long as they're not too far apart. We want to hit both parties and the F&WF. It's fairly expensive, but we have over a year to plan and save for it. So, yeah. I'll be starting a new PTR once I come back in October

But anyway Not starting that until October or November at the earliest.

You and I are in the same boat.....er....airplane. I'm still waiting on DH to book his ticket before I can do anything about mine! In the meantime, the prices are going up....

Yeah, I'm so afraid of my fare going even higher If it goes above $600, I think I may have to see if I can squeeze into a narrow chair, but I know my belly would spill over, which, on Southwest, is cause for being asked to leave the plane if it's full. I hope your DH books soon I plan on booking mine with the paycheck after this one (two weeks from Friday), so hopefully it won't be too pricey I have no credit cards, so this entire trip is cash.

Cash is KING! That means that you'll have no debt or bills to come home to at the end of the holiday!

Oh, I know, and I'm very happy about that... It's just that now I don't know if I can afford my airfare because I'm only paying cash and I'm worried that if I wait too long, it'll go even higher

Our airfare was only 335 round trip for BOTH of us until I decided to add an extra day and it made it 640 dollars. That's what I get for booking the airfare so early. Oh well, live and learn.

PS I love the dollar tree! I get a lot of my household items there on a regular basis.

Oh be sure to post pictures of the skirt you make! I am going to make a tote bag for my trip but I have at least 3 other sewing projects to get done before I make mine. 4 if I dont want to show up empty handed to my cousin when we see her on our trip.

I love the purple bag, too I'm hoping it won't be too heavy to carry around all week, which is why I'm going to bring a small backpack. My dad found one of the little nylon Where Dreams Come True bags at a garage sale and got it for me, and it's in good condition, so that's the other bag I'll be bringing.

What airline are you guys flying? That early price is amazing, but yeah, shooting up to $640 because of one day sucks If you guys are flying Southwest, you may want to take a look at their Chicago to Florida sale and see if your dates are included in it. You may be able to get a credit

I definitely will It's just still a sheet of fabric at the moment That's the only thing I'm really making. I'm buying the top for it from Old Navy and the shoes from Payless. I can fix things, but I can't really sew, so my mom's going to teach me (even though her sewing machine is 30 years old and isn't similar to most new machines). What projects are you working on?
