Hey Queen -

I hate the time change too. I have to get up at 5am, so its a real kick in the butt. The first morning I never heard my alarm for the first 1/2 hour. I thought it broke!

WOOT WOOT on the airmiles! that is awesome!!!!! What a great way to get a free ticket!

I will try and get a post together this weekend but I am out tonight, most of tomorrow and breakfast with my Winnipeg Dis-friends on Sunday which we cannot wait for!!! We are so excited to meet all our new friends

I had to share some exciting news though...for our Canadian friends they all know about airmiles.ca and how we love to collect them! Well I had enough points to buy one 7 day park pass! What made it even better was that they had a special which was "get a 7 day pass for the price of a 3 day". It wasn't a significant difference in the amount of airmiles ( I think maybe 25), but hey, better in my account than theirs I am torn between waiting and seeing if I can accumulate enough for another one (I need 2250 and I have 1357). I think I will wait and see!

I hope to squeeze in another report this weekend....maybe Sunday afternoon after our Dis-meet
I am looking forward to Sunday as well!!
I am also an avid collector of airmiles!!!!!
And I don't mean to burst your bubble but do you know that for 2200 airmiles you can fly somewhere in Canada like Toronto or Calgary return which means that those airmiles could be worth about 400-700 bucks depending where you go. How much does the 7 day pass actually cost in dollars? Make sure you do your math before you use your airmiles for them!
We only use our airmiles for flights, hotels and car rentals. We find we get more bang for our buck to use the airmiles that way.
Good luck with figuring it out!!
We also have the BMO Mastercard so that flights cost 25% less airmiles than needed at either peek time or off season time and we find its really worth it.
I don't even use that card. I just have it!!

Anyway, have a great Friday night!
I'm done the full time job for the week and have a couple salon clients and then the weekend is mine!!!

Debbie

We will be there from Aug. 17 - 26 so we overlap by a few days. Maybe we will run into each other. We are staying in a family suite at ASMu for the first time. What did you and Jasmine think of the resort?

Looking forward to more!

Kelly
Hi Kelly, thanks so much for joining us!!

I am tired to the "you're going again" speech, why do people think we care what they think We love what we love and that's all that matters

If you see us, please stop us and say hello!!! We absolutely love ASMu....it was the first resort we stayed at when Jasmine was 6 so we have wonderful memories....I watched her grow up throughout our trips at that resort! I peeked in a few windows of the family suites and they look great....2 bathrooms, you gotta love that!!

Thank you again for following along!!!

Hey Mary Ellen!!

I love that you thought it was broken...I could hardly sleep that night for fear of missing my alarm too

I love my airmiles! They have paid for more park passes than I can remember! Then when we arrive I just add on 3 more days and we're good to go....love it!

I went out for dinner with a couple of my girlfriends last night to a restaurant that accepts the airmiles card and they both don't have a card so I got their miles too We're really looking forward to our Dis-meet! I promise an update tomorrow afternoon!

I doubt it, but I think I'll at least try Me, my grandparents, my brother, my uncle, and my parents are all going camping over Memorial Day weekend, so I might try to talk to her about it then! One good thing is that last weekend when I was visiting them I was in the hot tub with my step-dad and my mom and my step-dad promised me as soon as I graduate from college he will pay in full for me to go to Disney!!!! I'm excited! That means I only have to wait another year and a half!!!! I'm having a garage sale and I'm hoping that I can make some money and i'll put all of it in my trip fund! I never got your pm I made sure it was enabled! Can't wait for your update and to hear all about your Dis meet!

Hi! Had a lot of fun at the Winnipeg Dis meet today! Only sorry I didn't get much of a chance to chat with everybody. Kinda tough when you're at a long table. I gotta admit that I was reeeeeaaaaal curious if Snow white would be able to finish that huge apple pancake!
