Oh Sheree, I'm bummed this is over. I hope you start a PTR!

We are also booked for MEA now! The April trip most likely isn't going to happen but we should be able to swing October. It probably will just be a girls only trip. I hope to arrive on the 17th so we definitely have to meet up.

Love all of your souvies!

I'll just say I got a few things in that DVC gift shop too!

About those dates in OCT.,
We are looking at a couple for that month.
12th/17th or 26th/31st....
Um, I'm going to say you should go with the earlier dates! Please???

Cute souvies. I have two of those soaps. Love all the DVC stuff.

Congrats on the small contract at OKW!

There was something else I wanted to say, but....DRAT.....I can't remember what.

Anyway - loved you TR. Can't wait to read all about Europe.

It does have some weird quirks like making sure you put stuff in the trash and then emptying. Troubleshooting can be a little weird, Enjoy!!!!!!
I love the Basin stuff - the soaps were mostly gifts. I have a few things, but sometimes I don't want to use them. Have to get over that.
I did not sign up for the 1 on 1. Do you have to buy it from Apple to get that? I got mine at Best Buy. I could use some lessons for sure. We've had the iMac for a while, and have iPhones and DH has the iPad, but I still feel a little ignorant. I know I'm not utilizing a third of what these devices can do!
I'm excited about getting a few more points. In the long run, DH says we should get 100 more at EACH place we own!! He's trying to catch Anita I think!! I'd just like to have enough to stay in a 1BR for a week at least once a year. It's tough for us to go more than that, but I could see doing HHI or Vero too.

Thanks Leslie!!! I'll get on it soon - just working on a title. That's always my big hold-up.

Yay for October!!! We will HAVE to find each other!!! We are planning to book our resort on Monday which is our 11 month date, so I'll at least know where we're staying for the moment. We may move it on our 7 month date in March. Of course, we'll be in touch between now and then!!

Mine too! When I was coming up with my last one I actually texted Jackie to see if she thought it was DIS appropriate and she loved it. So that is what I went with!

I can't believe you finished this while I was gone. Did you not want me at the farewell party?



Your pictures from the balcony on your last day are GORGEOUS! Really really nice!

Love all your souvies, especially the necklace set from AKL. That is really pretty!

I'm in shock that you get to go to Disney AND Europe! Lucky you! I can't wait to hear all about your October plans too!

Now, come on, I just really finished it yesterday, and you were already home!! The farewell party is still going on - it takes me a while to start the PTR, so this gets to keep on going!! I want you at all my parties!

Thanks on the pictures - I love sunrise and sunset pictures.

I think I'm in shock that I get to go to Europe and Disney too. We are trying to save money to pay for Europe so Christmas is going to be spare. I'm going to try to work my Pampered Chef business more between now and March for extra money too. But the WDW trip will not be too pricey. (It really can't be after we do Europe!!) We have enough DVC points for our room (a studio) and we will drive so that is relatively inexpensive. I'm pretty sure we will not be doing the DDP and only do one or two TS meals. I'm anxious to hear how you did the F&W on your trip. It's the park tickets that get us.

Hurray for more points!

Love all of your souvenirs -- you bought some great stuff! I have debated getting an iphone just so I could have a castle case for it.

Sherrie - I am almost certain you could go to the Apple Store and sign up for the one on one.

Almost as many points as Anita? Good luck with that!

All I can say about HHI is that late October member rate is so good you don't need points!

Good to know. It would be worth my while to know how to use my new toy!!
I'll never catch up with Anita, I'm sure! I can't afford the maintenance fees on that many points!

Where can I find the member rate? Is it on the DVC member site?

I think that's just another good reason to get an iphone! Add it to the list!!

As fond as we are of Pop, we have stayed deluxe enough to know that it would be really easy to be spoiled to the nicer places.

Animal Kingdom Lodge - Jambo - I LOVE THIS RESORT!!!! I don't care what anyone says about it being far away from parks. It is so beautiful and relaxing, and has so much to offer, it just doesn't matter. I really enjoyed the restaurants, Boma and the Mara (would still like to try Jiko) and the gift shop is one of the best on property. The theme is amazing!!!! The pool is great, the slide is perfect for my kids, the animals - nuf said...
Totally agree - love this place!
Sitting out on the balcony in the morning made it a bit harder to want to leave the resort to go to a park.

Epcot - crazy crowded, but so beautiful with Flower and Garden going on! Spring break might not be the best time to go there, but we enjoyed it.
I so much enjoy a spring trip after a dreary TN winter. I have a room booked for March, but I am 95% sure I am going to be cancelling, which will make me .



I've wanted a monorail to go around my little tree for a couple of years. Will December be the trip I get it?
