Hi Mary Ellen!

I'm disappointed too, we are missing each other by a hair I agree, when we went in January and didn't do the breaks in the afternoon, I missed it terribly!

I am hoping to get the next five days up Saturday.....no I will get them up Saturday!!! I am taking my car in for an oil change at 930am then it will be home to post

Another week almost over...isn't it funny how we wish them away and then when we actually get to WDW we want time to stand still

Jasmine and I are heading down to Grand Forks ND for the day on Sunday! I was hoping to leave Saturday and stay the night, but Jasmine picked up a shift at work and that comes first! I am going to take the car for an oil change on Saturday morning and then I will get home and post our next 5 days!!!

I am trying to get together a list of things I need (ok want ) in the states. I love Target, have I mentioned that before, I love Target! I have quite the list for that store already! The first thing on my list is an over-the-door shoe organizer....because someone (moi) left it on the back of the door last August at ASMu....didn't realize until I was unpacking when we got home! I also want those 3-in1 Purex laundry sheets...has anyone used those? They just seem so handy!

Jasmine wants to hit Kohl's, Pacsun and TJ Maxx. She informed me today she hardly has any tops does she forget I do her laundry I should have taken a picture of her face when I told her we're taking one suitcase each and I'll just do laundry at the end of the first week. My friend Diamondintheruff taught me all about doing laundry and drinking by the pool...I need to perfect my style

We will also hit Bath and Body Works....they did open a store at one of our malls here, however, they don't have the variety that the states have, so I need to stock up

Still haven't booked flights yet, but I'm really leaning towards that Delta flight that leaves Winnipeg at 11am and arrives in Orlando at 520something. I love the idea of not picking up our luggage and going through customs, never mind not being at the airport at 4am We will see though, you'd be surprised the lengths I'll go to save a few bucks on airfare!!!

I hope you are all having a great week and I promise a post on Saturday!!!

Not having a Target minutes from your house seems so wrong! Our house is set nicely between 2, which I and visit far more often than I should

I've used the 3-in-1 sheets and they work pretty well. I'd think they would be perfect for vacation since it would be so easy to pack!

Have fun on your big shopping excursion!

When we arrive at Target, I feel like I should get down on my hands and knees and kiss the floor.....it is wrong that I don't have one here I go aisle by aisle...looking at everything!!!

Good to know about the sheets, I just thought they would be so much easier to pack that liquid laundry soap and dryer sheets

Think of us on Sunday....stores open at noon!!!!

We practically live at Target. There are three of them considerably close to the house.

Rumour has it that Target is eyeing expansion to Canada. Pooksma can only hope.

Thank you!

I have to admit, I'm a tad jealous

I said I would have the next five days up today and I am keeping to my word I thought I would actually have it up earlier today, but when I took the car in for it's oil change they asked if I wanted them to repair the recall too! Silly me, I forgot my car had a recall for the steering column. The only time we ever noticed this problem was when Jasmine was learning how to parallel park for her road test, but really, who parallel parks after that, certainly not I

Needless to say what I thought would be a half an hour turned into over an hour...but no biggy, hit the service station to fill up, then hit the grocery store. Now it's time to get this post together!



Thursday, Sep 23

EPCOT

We will ride all our fav's...TT, SE, MS, and Soarin (goes without saying)
We have dinner at Les Chefs des France this evening so I think we will actually head back to the hotel closer to noon on this day, swim, shower and change to get back so we can do some of WS before dinner and do some more after dinner. Jasmine and I will stay for Illuninations and I, of course, will enjoy it with a Grey Goose Slushie!!


Friday, Sep 24

Magic Kingdom

We will start the day in Fantasyland! We both love the rides here, I think it makes us both think of how much we enjoyed this when Jasmine was little! What will be interesting is to see if I can get Jasmine on IASW.... We usually exit going towards Tomorrowland and I'm sure Jasmine will want one ride on SM before heading back to the hotel.

This was originally the evening I had booked Narcoosee's.....but I changed my mind I know I know, it's a sickness, I'm always looking at changing our ADR's. I was reading some dining reviews and Flying Fish sounds delicious, we've never been to the Boardwalk ever, so I booked Flying Fish!!! That potato encrusted red snapper was calling my name, never mind the white chocolate peach creme brule..


Saturday Sep 25

DHS

We will do the usual here, go straight to TSM, grab FP's, jump in the standby line, after that back to ToT, RnRC, GMR (this is more for me) and then we'll play it by ear. Now I know I haven't actually added it, but it's a given that we will shop everyday before leaving the parks!

For dinner this evening, we will try another place we've never been before....Captain's Grille and the Yacht Club....very excited to try this.


Sunday Sep 26

DTD/Pool Day
I felt by this point in the trip, we could have a bit of a sleep in today then we are going to head to Kona Cafe for breakfast! We have always wanted to try it out so I will pay OOP for this instead of using a TS credit. From the Poly, we will head to DTD, so a little shopping, then head back to the hotel for some pool time.

Dinner this evening will be at Flying Fish Cafe....we are both very excited about this. We will go early and check out the Boardwalk. Maybe one day we'll be lucky enough to stay here!




I'm having a bit of a moment here, I'm missing the paper where I had the rest of our days. I thought I put them all in my binder, but clearly I'm loosing my mind

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! Bon Jovi is here this evening and I can honestly say I'm really happy I didn't get tickets. It's at our outdoor stadium and we've had thunderstorms all day today! Jasmine works pretty close to the stadium so she's thinking she'll drive by on her way home from work!

Your plans sound great! As for changing your mind on adrs...well you know I COMPLETELY understand! I have changed adrs and resorts so many times Dale can't keep up

I'll be looking forward to hearing about Flying Fish since we've never been there!

As for Jasmine and IASW..she's going to get a break since it will be down for a rehab. I'm so bummed we'll miss it but Caitlin and her dad well not so much

Just think in 2months you'll be back!

I have to say....I went to Target yesterday and was thinking about you and realized how nuts I'd go if I didn't have them close by.

Thanks for the heads up on IASW...guess we'll have to do Philharmagic a few times to get out of the heat

Can't believe it's 2 months today

Thanks Denise!

Turns out we didn't need to see him, we could sit in the backyard and hear him We live about 10 minute drive from the venue and we could hear it perfectly, at first I thought someone was having a party with their music a little loud, then I realized it was Kid Rock...after him we knew it was Bon Jovi, so we set up camp and enjoyed!!!

Thanks!

I'm glad you fully understand my love for that store! Jasmine just jumped into the shower and we have plans to be on the road by 9 for store opening at noon....I never know how the border is going to be so I'd rather be early than late

Hi Queen! I'm all caught up! Your plans look great. I would have loved listening to that concert. I hope you have a great shopping trip. I love Target as well. I have to stay out of there though because I spend too much of my precious Disney money there.

I FINALLY made it to the post office yesterday so Jas' card is in the mail!

Have a great, safe trip!
