Congrats on getting your RE license! I got mine last year and have been working part time and mostly working from home. I've now realized how hard it is trying to only work part time and all of the fees involved with the business are drowning me So I might put mine inactive for a little while until I can go to work full time. I'm sure you will love it! It's a good, flexible business, good luck!!!!

Um, yeah, I could have told you that wearing gloves is a must! I never tried RIT dye, we used dye from Dharma Trading Co. online, it is VERY brilliant...but, you MUST leave it to set for 24 hours! Believe me, I know the torture, I watch the clock, but it has to be done. I promise you will be rewarded for your patience with bright, dark, tie dye! I'm glad your mickeyhead came out well. We always have good luck with ours as well, but my friend is the queen of baste stitching, so I think that's why!

I will have to check out the Apples to Apples! We have the Jr. and regular version, but a Disney version?!?!? that sounds great!

Congrats on your license!!!

Thanks! I'm definitely learning how expensive it is! I am actually working as a team with my best friend so I'm hoping we can work out a good system and split the duties. We already have a few people wanting to use us just waiting to get that official license in the mail!

My hands are finally back to normal I'll have to look up that dye. I just don't know if I have enough patience to wait that long.

Our new stroller is AMAZING! Even Isaac who is almost 7 can ride in it. It's so easy to push, and very light for a double stroller. I highly recommend it!

Thanks for the review of Apples to Apples. That sounds like something we'd enjoy playing.

We LOVE our Apples to Apples. It's a lot of fun with the whole family. Even Violet (2) has fun looking at our discard cards.

A few new purchases for the trip :)

Hey guys, it has been a crazy busy summer so far and I can't believe it's July! I've had Disney in the back of mind the whole time though and I've found some really great stuff for our trip. Here's a few pics of some of the things I've bought.


I bought these at the Disney Store. They are really cute and have water and glitter going up the sides. I'll keep these in our room and let the kids use them there. Cost: Under $3 each.



Next up are:
Lady, Minnie & Perry for $5 each from the Disney Store. I plan to give these to the kids when we get on the plane.

Hand Pump Misters. I bought these for $2.50 each at Target. I haven't tested them out yet, but they look like they'll get the job done to me

Sunglasses from the Dollar Bin at Target

Phineas & Ferb toy from the Disney Store for $2.97. I plan to have some surprises for the kids a few of the mornings and this will be one of them for DS.

I'll work on pics of the many Disney shirts that I've been buying. I'm always on the lookout for deals and sales. I also took advantage of the online Disney Store sale yesterday and got some clearance items with an Extra 40% off!!

Hi! Joining in. We are going in October as well. Congratulations on your RE license!

Just wanted to say my kiddos have done the passports (homemade) and Kim Possible missions and loved them. This year I would like to make Food & Wine passports to try to get them to taste foods from different countries and they really want to do another Kim Possible mission!

Can't wait to hear more!

Thanks and Welcome!

Great idea about the Food & Wine Passports. I haven't heard that one yet!

Disney Clothes!

So I have been watching the clearance and sales racks very closely and I almost have enough Disney clothes for the whole family to wear something Disney every day!

The most successful spot for me has been Wal-Mart. I have gotten several T-shirts there for only $5!
Here is one of my favorites....Lady & the Tramp


Like this one too! Again only $5!


Got this one from the Disney Store for DD. I think it was $9.


This is for DS. It's from the Disney Store too. I'm thinking it was around $5.


Lots more to come later!

I like that one too! I saw it at the Disney Store and made myself wait to buy it because it wasn't on sale. I went back the next week and it was in the clearance section

ADR & MNSSHP Changes

I knew it was bound to happen. At exactly 180 days out (Easter Sunday) I got up at the break of dawn and made my ADRs only to change them about 80 days later. I was very happy with the restaurants and times I got, so why did I change them you ask? Well, my best friend lives in Orlando and when I told her we were going to MNSSHP on Thursday the 27th of October, she said that her boys wouldn't have school that next day. She said a lot of the schools let the kids out the Friday before Halloween. The more I thought about it, the more I was scared that a lot of locals would hit that Thursday party since there was no school the next day, and it was a cheaper ticket. So I changed it to Tuesday. Thankfully, I haven't bought my tickets yet. So it took a few switching around of ADRs but in the end I got exactly what I wanted just on different days.
