still no power at my house though, I'm at my IL's house today. should be fun replacing everything in our fridge and freezer!
just glad your okay! also depending on how long the power was out the freezer stuff can still be safe. http://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Even...ezer/index.asp

quick update


My power came back on last night! We're still with my IL's the next town over, headed back this afternoon. Bummed that we'll have to trash all of the perishable food in our fridge and freezer, but very grateful that we didn't have any damage to our home!

Disney update- DH found out about star wars weekend. He was watching random youtube videos with Alexis and came across one from star wars weekend last year. The dates were in the background, so I assumed he saw and put 2 and 2 together. I was wrong But I said "did you notice what the dates were" and then he slowly realized why I had asked! He's so excited and thought it was sweet I was surprising him.

Did everyone see that they announced the celebrities for this year? I forget their names, but Darth Maul and Boba Fett will be there the weekend we're there!

I like that trip binder! I may have to "borrow" some ideas from you! And we are driving down too! I didn't even think about cute signs for the car windows- that may be added to my "borrowing" list too! Your really getting close!

Your planning binders are absolutely awesome! You are very creative!

I am glad to hear that your home didn't have any damage and glad that power came back on.
This Spring weather has been CRAZY!!! Tornadoes, softball sized hail and monsoon style rains. I really hope we are done for awhile.

Thanks! Most of the stuff I got off the creative boards here, and then added stickers here and there I have most of the planning stuff memorized (like what day we're going to which park, ADRS, etc), but I think it's pretty, even though I don't look at it much!

I need to reprint some of the pages too because I was trying to get different ADRs and I got some I like better than the originals

that stuff is actually for the window at our resort! I saw a thread a few months ago about decorating your windows/doors and thought it was a cute idea! I "borrowed" a whole bunch of paint samples from home depot. They have disney paint and all the paint samples have colored mickey heads on them, cut them out and voilà! pretty window!

however, now that you say that I might use some for the car windows too!
