I had no idea that love bugs bit. This makes me like them even less.

Happy Elf. Thanks for joining in. Girls trips are so much. Looks like you have a trip coming up in a couple months.

Dover was so bad last night that you had to escape to AC. Did you have a good time? I bet there were some interesting sights there.

BCV is my #2 dream resort so I'm down for tonssss of pictures, please! And, I'm really liking the title of this report...did I mention I have a list of all the drinks I'd like to try while I'm in the World again in a few weeks? Seems like we'll all get along pretty well here...
Kristen! Thanks so much for joining in. I hope our TR keeps you entertained until you leave in 15 days. WOOT!

BCV really lived up to the hype. I loved being so close to Epcot and I loved the customer service. The studio was also very nice, as were all the pools. Lots of plusses to that resort.

I have to agree that Walmart is a darn good reflection of what is going on in the rest of the community. I live 30 minutes from Dover and everything here was teaming with race fans too.

I can attest to the fact that she got a lot of shoes in that bag! It was unreal. She had ALL her clothes and ALL her shoes in there. My suitcase looked like a dinosaur compared to hers and I couldn't have fit all that stuff in there.

Wonderful Introduction Cynthia. All your pictures are fabulous! So glad everything fell into place for you to be the west part of our clan.


I hope it stops raining there soon!

Old Friend!!!!! I'm so glad you made it! I've missed you since the last TR ended! I think you're right - this TR is filling up at record speed (at least for me). It should be a challenge to keep up!

Are you getting excited for your Fall trip????

Oh there were tweaks...traded out heels for tennis shoes and keens and I actually did wash it all and then repack it but yeah, that did help. It WAS wrinkly though. Did you miss all the ironing I did? Oh wait, you were RUNNING. About 1000% more ironing than I ever do at home, that's for sure.

Which would be zero.

I actually live in Magnolia, so unless I try to go some place, it's not that bad. I never try to escape on race weekend, but alway seem too. Last year's May race was Disney. This year I had to settle for AC with the girls. It was fun acting like I was young again.

Stranger! where have you been???? I haven't seen you on the boards for awhile. How exciting that you have an upcoming trip! I hope your trip to the airport is a lot better than that one you had a few years ago. Can't believe I remember that!

Come to think of it, that ironing board was out quite a bit!

Less than a month to go! WOOT! In some ways I really miss my summer trips and in other ways, well....I don't! Mostly because of the heat. I have gotten to be a heat wimp. I wait all winter for it to get warm and then complain about it all summer. YUP!

I think Magnolia is such a cute little town. Well, actually, it might not be that little anymore since I haven't passed through in quite a while.

Any opportunity to act young is alright in my book. Sounds like a great place to go with the girls!

Happy Dog! Sounds like you have been a busy lady, so thanks for stopping by.

So is that what the drink was called? A Can in a can in a can drink? Ummmm...OK......Cynthia forgot to tell us the name or we would have laughed over that. All I know is that a blender was high on the priority list of things to bring. Thank goodness Christine decided to add one to her owner's locker. We got lots of looks (stares) when we took that blender to the pool. No worries - its WAS plastic!

Yes, I am a self professed dork.

Sometimes it's as simple as playing around with your alignment and the line breaks till it flows. If you don't force the line breaks it can get wonky.

I also find that using the rotating tickers help free up space instead of the single ones.
