Wooo Hooo someone who understands me lol. I just wish we had a Kroger closer to us that double dollars :/ When we lived in Bay City I was able to save sooo much $$ that way and practically walk out with a cart full for $20

It is sooo much harder now with 3 kids and Disney constantly on the brain

haircut- we last took my ds at 9 months. U wanted to get his hair cut but he didt have any. So now he is 2 years and I am still saving his first haircut for harmony. Thankfully we are just a couple months away. And thankfully his hair is curly because this haircut is long overdue
he was our easiest last trip. I have a Moby too and it definitely was helpful at times. I'd consider taking a stroller from home. It really made the airport easier. You've got carryons and jackets and bags to entertain the kids and tickets out and it's just easier not to have to carry the kids too. You can roll your stroller all the way down the gate ramp and the agents them put it under the plane as you board and it's back out there waitin for you when you step off.
I'm originally from Detroit, DH is from Midland and now we are pretty much right in the middle of the "mitten"! Aww your DS sounds like mine now lol. I'm dying to do something special for him since the girls are doing BBB that day as well but I guess we'll have to wait on it. It's funny you mention that his hair is curly because so is mine and I'm almost 100% sure he has inherited it (the girls didn't). I too was bald until I was nearly two but after that my little curls made up for it! Be sure to save his little curlys , it'll be soo cute to take him in for his first cut!


Thanks for the tip about the stroller. I plan on taking our double combi and moby as well.

Can't wait to hear about your wild Disney dream! lol
There are some really good sites, I can send you some if you like For me its more about having the time to do it

Yay for 20 days!!! We are down to 21 now and I still can't get over it. I'm secretly already planning another trip for the end of this year hehe. I'll post about the dream in a bit!

Sooo I am having some REALLY crazy Disney dreams lately guys! Have any of you ever had this happen before your trip? LOL just wild and they seem sooo real First one was kind of wacky really. We had arrived at POP and had gotten a room on the top floor facing the pool...of course I was complaining because I have requested a ground level room. For some reason that night 2 of my old high school friends apparently tagged along with me and DH and the kids were all in the pool. My friends and I went out to dinner, though I'm not really sure where? Our waitress was mean and had told me that I could not order dessert!! Now, this really made me angry so I had to call a manager over (yep, told you its nuts lol). I ended up getting about 3 plates full of desserts in the end. As the waitress was clearing the tables she made a comment about me not eating all of my food (thank you fear of DxDP !) and refused to box up my desserts for me. What a meanie she was. So, in the end I ended up back at POP to find my DD Violette floating away in the pool still with DH sleeping in the room. I think I woke up scared after that part....

The dream I had last night was a little strange as well. We had arrived at MK for our CRT lunch and everything was going just lovely until all of the food came. It came all at once, ice cream, dinner, etc. I couldn't eat for some reason and then when the princesses came out my camera didn't work and neither did my phone. I was trying to take pictures of the food for my dining reviews and it wouldn't work no matter what I tried! Ugggh I was beyond angry and began yelling at DH (cause of course its all his fault LOL). At this point my 3 year old decides to start running off to get to the princesses. Ughhh...what a nightmare! To make it even worse they never came to our table and by the time I got back from chasing Violette my food was gone. So, no princesses, no food and no pictures! We ended up leaving CRT and since I was still hungry I was able to walk over to LTT and get right in. I was by myself with PJ for this lunch but still never got to eat for whatever reason. Then DH came in with someone else baby telling me to look at how cute she was and that her parents let him hold her. STRANGE.

So who knows what tonight will bring for dreams. Maybe this time I'll actually be able to eat something.

Ughhh typed up a big post and then deleted it! DARN!

Well we are down to 17 days now and I am totally excited I have gotten some color from going to the tanner and have also made it back to my pre preggo weight!

I have also convinced my Sister to go to WDW in October!!!! We are going to most likely do a long weekend with only the two of us sometime around my Bday I told Lily and she told me "WHAT? NO! Thats not fair, you are too OLD to go that much!". LOL. Ohhhh no no no sweetie! I'm not too old for WDW dang it! I'm just so thrilled at this since she has never been either. No one in my family "gets" it and I'm totally hoping to make her understand Disney

Well my 3 year old is feeling the need to throw her toys from her room down the stairs at the moment, excuse me :D

No rain here but it's been a long, cold winter that's for sure. Yesterday felt good to actually be able to wear just a thicker sweatshirt outside though. What I'm looking forward to the most is just getting out of the house for longer than a trip up to the grocery store, running errands, etc.

I can officially "check in" online in 3 days if I want to I don't think I am going to do it though since I'd really like to get my request of a ground level, pool facing room

We are warmer up to the 50's but with the rain still need our winter coats and hoods...umbrella's are useless here with the way the wind has been blowing too!
I'm thinking about doing on-line, but got preferred and want 4th floor away from the pools...don't like having people walking on my head or the pool noise at night!

Hi!! I'm from the facebook group too!
We will be at MK on April 3rd as well, and staying at Pop on just that night. Time is going fast and slow all at the same time. I want it to be here, but I have a few things to finish up. But I know I still have 15 days before we leave, so I haven't even started a few things. I am almost completely packed though.
You have the cutest kids! I hope you do a TR as well.

lol, we are just the opposite with room preference! We are preferred as well but with the double stroller I just think it'd be so much easier to be ground level. Noise? Hehe...maybe some day I'll know what its like w/o it but at this point in my life noise is a good thing. It's when it gets too quiet around here that I begin to worry

I am pretty much packed and good to go here! Getting SOOO excited! let me know if you decide to do online check in. A part of me really wants to do it but...just not sure.

I think I'm going to do on-line, figure if nothing else I'll hopefully be in the shorter check in line! we are at 9 days until we leave for GA and 12 until we get to Disney!! so will be doing on-line checking in on the 19th!

mailing my box to POP tomorrow, everything is washed, just have to pack the suitcases, all my shopping and running around is done ! will probably pack on monday, get my house clean, change sheets on Friday...always love coming home to clean sheets after a trip!

looking forward to meeting up with you all at POP or in Epcot on the 2nd!
