Hey! Mary
I hope you are able to change your March trip; how fun to be able to go the same time as Leanne and her girls. I should be working on plannning my cruise excursions (just have not been as excited about it as the Disney trip)...Danny asked me last night what excursions have it narrowed it down to?!?

I might have to do and OT post here and get some thoughts from you guys; that might help bring some excitement back into the cruise.

more your way for your changes!

If you go to HP early in the morning and it looks TOO crowded, hit up the rest of the park and head back mid day. That is what we did and we literally were able to walk on to EVERYTHING! I won't give away too much, but Forbidden Journey might just be the coolest attraction I have ever been on. But then again we are huge Potter fans!

Oh and glad my tip on the TA hours helped you! October should be released soon! Happy planning! Can't wait to hear more!
Reese, we went to IOA in April; it was not opened yet. I am a huge HP fan! as is both of my older children. Danny loves IOA and I can't wait to see WWOHP. If you don't mind can you let me know when the TA hours for Oct come out. The link I had was only for the Sep hours...TIA

I will definitely keep an eye and let you know if I see the Oct TA hours come out. I'm thinking in the next 2 weeks tops.

I made all of mine online last time and it let me do the 180+10. As long as you have your reservation number, you should be fine. Now you can even reserve Fantasmic packages and stuff like that online.

Plans look great so far! I think we will overlap a lot!

OT: cruise celebrating 25 years!

I hope you guys don't mind but I really need to build my excitement for the cruise Danny and I are going on this coming May. We are booked out of New Orleans on the Carnival Triumph for seven days. We will be visiting Key West, Freeport, and Nassau Bahamas. It will be just the two of us, I will be leaving Ashton for the first time (for seven days--I leave him for a night or two but never this long). I know we are going to have a wonderful time and to be celebrating such a momentous occassion.

So, I thought if I shared with you guys and got your thoughts on things I know it will help build the excitement. Danny is happy and excited but just no fun to discuss things like you guys

Yesterday, Old Navy was having a 25% off sale so I ordered a few things.
I purchased a top, two pair of bermuda shorts, and a sun dress; when they come in I'll take pictures to share with you guys. Last week mom and I went ride to the outlets in MS and I bought two tops at Ann Taylor. Last Sept I purchased three pair of shorts from the Gap (I had gotten them for only $10--boy, am I sorry that I did not get all five colors that day). Instead of buying a new dress I decided I am just going to wear the same dress I wore to Dayne's graduation.

When my new stuff comes in I'll pull out the matching outfits and shot some pics to see what you guys think. All I have left to purchase is a swimsuit.

Last year one of the young girls in our neighborhood had on this really cute haltertop type suit and I fell in love. Her's was deep red and black; I can't find that one (she got it from Walmart) I did find a white and black one very similiar to it; I need to suck it up and go try one on (I hate swimsuit shopping). If I could copy and paste the image I may post it here. My last two swimsuits are a few years old from Macy's and I just feel it is time for something new. I just bought Danny a new one from JCP a few weeks ago, and a few T's. He may need a few more T's but all in all he is all set. He like to wear polos and my Mom buys him three new ones every year for Christmas and his bday so he has enough to choose from.

I am hoping I like the sun dress and thinking I may purchase two more in different colors to wear on the ship; and I figure whatever I wear in May I can wear again in Sept for our trip at WDW.

Next up some thoughts on the excursions I am thinking about (unless, you tell me you don't care and don't want to hear about it)

I'd love to hear about your cruise plans!

Vacation shopping is the BEST!! Swimsuit shopping? Not so much!

I am trying to spring clean around here, yesterday I wanted to move the bookcase/computer desk into Ashton's room. But, it would not fit in the hall to get to his room. So, it got cleaned, rearranged, and placed right back where it was; but, re orangized!

So, a little bit ago I started to go through my closet (this is going to take me DAYS ) but, I did find two dresses I forgot I had. Actually, three dresses I have a red one like the black one.

Here is the one I wore to Dayne's graduation
I was planning to wear this the night of the Captain's dinner
here are the other two:this one is solid black

this has white polk a dots
close up

the last two are long dresses; thinking they may be nice to wear to dinner in the dining room. The red one has wider strapes a bit wider than the first dress.

Oh Lordy, I get all flustered even reading about Spring cleaning and cleaning out closets. I started cleaning out our closet this time last year and it seemed to take me forever to get it finished. Now, we have boxes stacked everywhere that are full of wedding stuff so there's no need to even think about Spring cleaning.

How great that you found the dresses in your closet! Looks like you won't have to be doing as much shopping for yourself as you thought.

Can't wait to read all about your cruise plans.
