Meghan- Have a wonderful weekend at Niagara with DH!


I'm officially PAID IN FULL!!!!!! Exactly 6 weeks from today I will be last minute packing to get us ready to hit the road- hopefully!
I have Jason ALMOST talked into leaving Thursday afternoon. If we leave Thursday late afternoon we can get in a few hours of driving, stop overnight and get a good night's rest, and hopefully arrive to Disney late afternoon/early evening on Friday. That way Saturday will be a full day of Disney!!! If we leave early Friday morning like he wants to do we won't arrive until Saturday afternoon. I want the full day Saturday since it's the last Star Wars Weekend. I already have off Thursday and DH could get in a half day and would just have to leave work a little early. The kids have school and I could either send them for the half day or just let them stay home Thursday and start their vacation with me.
Thanks Kim! We haven't done anything big for our anniversary in quite a few years. I am honestly looking forward to sleeping in later than 7am and not having a little boy join me in bed at 2:30am.

Leave on Thursday!!!! You'll want to get as much time at Star Wars Weekends as possible.

If I mentioned it to DH, he would have no trouble planning on it. Granted...he fell in love with the build-your-own-droids at the Star Wars store....and bought two.
He's not a die hard Star Wars fan but he's excited to be there for it- I think mainly because DS is such a huge Star Wars kid!

DH is just not a 16 hour drive to Florida or Florida June heat and humidity fan.

Enjoy the uninterrupted sleep!!!! It's funny the things we look forward to once we become moms.

I am SOOOOO in vacation mode!!!! I have exactly 23 more work days until my much needed break!!!!

I bought myself some comfy crocs http://www.crocs.com/on/demandware.s...-Show?q=meleen Not the cutest but they are comfy and I'll be doing lots of walking so comfort takes precedence over fashion. I also pre-ordered my photopass and made myself a little list of toiletries and such that I need to get yet!

Did I mention that I am SOOOOO ready for this vacation!!!!

cute crocs! Mine are just regular flip flop looking...just got a new solid black pair, and last time we were at Disney got the Blue and Pink ones with Mickey heads punched in the strap! LOOOVE those!!! I know you are sooooo ready!!!! go get those tiny toiletries girl!!!
I usually do a pop up hamper every year and put it in our biggest suitcase..but I was looking at some Vera Bradley stuff and their big laundry bag looks like it would work too...and i could roll it up to pack it...Any one use it for that yet?

I love the crocs!

Thanks to everyone for their support re:the new job . I think I've decided to go with the nanny share, as it's the most secure for me right at the moment. I declined the second offer, as the job is a 40 to 50 minute drive away from where I live and they needed me for 10 months. I have another interview this upcoming Sunday, so we'll see.

How is everyone? The weather is boiling here.

Well, I have some news! I've accepted a job It's the nanny share position, which is the best job for me . Starting Sept 3, I'll be taking care of two 1 year old boys. The current contract will last a year, with the chance to renew it afterwards.

My vacation was approved as well, so I'll be visiting WDW next May

The weather here is awful. SNOW in May!!! ridiculous. And I'm having a garage sale too. People are tough though, they still come out and shop! It's supposed to warm into the low 70s next week, which is what it should be!

Glad you finalized the job and get your vacation!!

We are trying to plan our Alaska excursions - it's hard, because we want to do so many things, and they are not cheap! Both our kids are "adults" so it's more expensive now too for that reason. Then again, I don't have plans to do this again, so if we can swing it, we're doing as much as we can!

I'm doing my 30 days til Disney happy dance!!!

We're definitely leaving Thursday instead of Friday. Poor DH didn't stand a chance once the kids got to him. I'm thinking about booking a room only ressie for Friday night since our package doesn't start until Saturday. Budget wise I may book a value but it might be easier to check out and back in Sat at CBR. We want to get in as much park time Saturday as possible at DHS for Star Wars Weekends. I have to think on that one but I guess I better think quickly before rooms are gone.

I'm lucky any of my clothes are clean, let alone wrinkle free!
I don't do the whole thinking thing!
