Oh I wish I was close enough to my trip to begin packing! I would love to jump in the car right now and drive down.

I would SO love to drive down right now. Even though it takes 2 days to get there, I don't care lol I would leave right this minute if I could It is really funny because I told my mom that I had started packing, and she told me that my grandmother started packing that very same day! I guess she is excited to go too!

So things have been crazy busy around here lately! I haven't hardly been on. I would like to say

Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends

and

Happy Independence Day (I think that's what the 4th of July is called lol) to my American friends!

Yes, both of these are a little late, but better late than never, right?

I hope to get a couple of proper updates posted in the next couple of days. I have been working, getting things ready for the trip, there has been lots of family time, and Matt has had a ton of baseball lately (including a tournament where he won MVP!).

See y'all real soon!

Hello Krysten! I just started reading along but I had to say, that is so COOL that you had a Disney wedding. I'm gonna read all of this PTR and then read all about your wedding.

Have fun at AKL, I'd like to stay there one day. From what I've heard on the DIS, there's a lot of fun activities there!

Thanks for coming by! Our wedding really was better than anything I could have hoped for! I am really excited about AKL, it looks so beautiful and relaxing!

So it is finally time for an update!

I didn't have a big list of things to buy for this trip (unlike my last trip!). But one of the things on my list was new rechargeable batteries for my camera. I have had my camera for probably five years now, and I'm planning on buying a new one at some point, but it is just not high on my list of priorities right now. The batteries that originally came with the camera won't hold a charge anymore and if I use disposable batteries, I can take a couple of pictures, and then they are toast! So I have looked at a couple of places, and didn't find anything worth buying. My DH and I were at a local outlet mall yesterday because he needed some shoes, and they had a Sony store, so I went in, just to see if they had anything (my camera is a Sony). I ended up buying these



I got 4 batteries, with the charger, and a charger for the car, all for $39.99 CDN, which was half off the regular price! I was quite happy lol


In other news, my countdown says 1 month and 3 days until my trip!! Work has been stressing me out lately, and I am in desperate need of a vacation, so I can hardly wait!!


And here is a random picture for the day

This is one of my favourite pictures from our last trip. It is my little brother with Minnie at the Illuminations Grand Gathering Dinner - which I highly recommend!!

The batteries are one that I also forget to charge before I go somewhere. Way to be prepared!

lol Thanks! I always plan on taking more pictures than I could possibly need, so batteries are pretty important lol We are staying at a new (to us) resort this trip so I have no pictures of it yet! And I love photos, and I scrapbook, so they will come in handy!

Love your PTR so far

I went back and skimmed through your wedding report, your wedding was truly beautiful! Your gown looks amazing (as did you).

Really hope you do a TR for this trip!

So we did some more (yes more!) shopping last night, and I think we should be done now lol

Last night, we went to the states to the outlet mall, and to the UnderArmor store. We love UnderArmor, and it is so much cheaper at the outlet mall than any stores right where we live, so that is where we usually go. So here are a couple of pictures of what I got.




And here are the pictures of a couple of things we bought last week.

We all got matching t-shirts that we are going to wear on our travel day. We don't usually do the matching thing but we thought we would test it out haha And the shirts were cheap and really cute, so how could we resist?



And we also all got matching pj's (we almost always get new pj's for trips, not sure why, just something we do) and we all loved the same pair, so… lol here they are

The shirts.

Detail on the bottom of the pants.


Now that we have everything we're buying, the trip feels even closer! Less than a month to go!

I'm always up for shopping pics! Great UnderArmour T!

I can relate to the "new jammies" for a trip. I haven't gotten mine yet for this trip...hmmm better get on that!
