Black pepper is super spicy around here along with pepperoni pizza in my family

Well ladies lOok at what the cat dragged in!! . I'm so glad I haven't missed much yet. I am still plodding away on my sad cracked screen phone ( why? Oh because I didn't get one of those ultra cool iPhone cases ya'"ll have) and still no computer though I hope to have that back this weekend.)

Have you ever posted on here at length from your phone ? It's painful. I am waaay ahead of my keyboard! Anyhow I missed you gals!

For those not in the know I do get to make a cameo later on! Just busted my way in and made myself a DisMom! And I am actually official too-I have the button to prove it!!! (thanks Laura!!!). I did not, however, have
A tiara...but being the semi-red headed stepsister of the group...not sure if I've earned that yet! (lol)

I'm so looking forward to reading!!

I will admit it, I am a DISmoms’ groupie, vacationing vicariously through DISmoms’ trip reports. I anxiously wait for tickers to be added to each one of the DISmoms postings knowing I will soon be laughing my head off at the antics of the wild and crazy women.

Umm, perhaps I should say, I am not a stalker just a bored middle-aged lady who is too busy to create her own DISmoms group but still has the desire to travel with friends who do not call me “Mommy” or “Sarah’s Mom”. Although, in reality, I love being called "Mommy" and "Sarah's Mom".

So here is my question to all of you groupies, do you spend as much time on Facebook as you do on Disboards? I know I do not.

Great update ladies!!!! Love the DIS mom pins! So cute!

Love the 2BR villa at the BW and the view is spectacular. OK - I REALLY need to stay there for F&W 2012 (because I won't be going for 2011 - boo hoo!)

Tequila and water works - I think I would fit right in as one your strays!

I consider myself a Dismom groupie also!I love these reports & I would love to do a girls trip sometime! I spend lots more time here than on my FB page!

I had talked with Ellen on the phone a handful of time and never spoken to Evie or Joan before except thru the wonders of Facebook so it was a mystery what everyone was going to be like...insert scary music here......So when I saw them it was like seeing family that you hadn't seen in year. Litterally Joan and I jumped hugging for like five minutes. Ellen just stood there--laughing at me I thought and then I realized she was soooo happy we all got a long.

I think I had the avacado 'rita. I had never had one before. How you ask could one not have a 'rita in the ditch when they are wolrd know? My family is the answer. Seriously, we hit the 3 amigos ride but the kids were melting down last October and there was no hope for me to go in. Darn family! Oh well I knew I was coming back. I like the avacado. It was really smooth and the hybiscus salt was AWESOME! I will say the shrimp in the shot glass was spicy, but then again we consider black pepper an exotic spice in Minnesoder. Seemed like it went so fast but we flew out of there on a mission to get back to BWVs to meet Lonnie and to award all of the moms the covetted DISmom pin.

(got a ton of questions what the deal with that special pin was--highly recommend creating a pin if are doing an extened day trip. Shirts are great but this is something that you can wear every day...zazzle has a great site for them )
Once back at BWV, the fun continued. I think I started the trip off right by making everyone laugh with the goodies I pulled out of my bag..cups, pins, chocolate, special treats galore...GO GIRL!!! I knew I was with the best girls ever because they got my teen-aged boy sense of humor (yup..i'm a teenaged boy when it comes to humor some times...LOL
Now I know Miss Ellen has wonderful photos to share with us and I am grateful for that because even though I had two cameras with me I didn't mangage to take but a hand ful of photos. But the ones I have are AWESOME!
Yes, I have plenty of photos- I'll try to update this morning-

We all loved the pins SO MUCH!! They were a GREAT idea! And the goodie bags were awesome- especially the tassles...

Well, it's about time!! That really stinks about your computer and your phone- if you take it to an Apple store, they can fix the cracked screen. You have an iphone, right? Anyway- hope you have your computer back this weekend- we all miss YOU, TOO!!!

Geez- I had no idea you liked us so much!! We like you too!! But can I answer your question, even though I'm clearly not a groupie? I just wanted to say i spend waaaaaaay more time on the DIS than FB- I have so much more fun here, usually!

I really, REALLY enjoyed that view, MEK- it was so cool to just leave the door open and here the music all the time. LOVED IT!!! Seeing the pics makes me REALLY miss it!

Let's find Lonnie!!

So we had to leave and get back to BWV, because we knew Lonnie would be arriving soon- AND they had texted me that our room was ready. On the way....



Look! They're inside, too!!







He was new since my last visit-





I was VERY intrigued by this-



and REALLy wanted to go in to check it out, but I knew that Lonnie was almost here, and I figured I had PLENTY of time to go back that weekend...

Soon we were checking out the villa and the view!











I can totally see why a Boardwalk view is one of the MOST desired views out there- and lucky us, we got it at 7 months with non-BW points! Inside was pretty, too-

the studio portion of the 2bdrm-













The living area-











Cont'd next post-

Let's find Lonnie!! cont'd

And then the master-













As you can see, our luggage arrived, and I made a call to get my Owner's Locker. Laura gave us all pins, and these adorable cups filled with candy and tassles... well....tassles for some of us. But sometimes, what happens on a DISmom trip, STAYS on a DISmom trip...so there will be no pics of THAT!!

Kara, however, planned on making full use of ME time with Laura's GO GIRL...



And Laura did her best Tin Man impersonation...



Oh...MAN!!! Minnie Soder lake girls are PREPARED!!! We ran down to get Lonnie & all her BOOZE, because Lonnie was going to stock us up! On the way down, as we zig zagged through the hallways (because we weren't quite sure where we were, yet!)-



So, SO happy to see Lonnie! And WOW she came prepared!! We got a bellman to help us haul the luggage & massive amounts of cocktailing supplies up to our villa, and minutes later...we were out on the balcony, toasting to 5 days of crazeee DISmom fun!!









Don't you LOVE the glasses? Lonnie brought THOSE, too!

Up next- we're goin back to EPCOT- to have dinner with the HOT WAITERS at Tutto Italia...right, Kara??

The villa is gorgeous and i am encouraged to hear you were able to get it at 7months! If anything could tear me from the Beach Club, it might be BW.

Love those DIS Mom pins and tiaras. Ahh, the waiters of World Showcase. . I believe our carefully conducted research concluded Via Napoli to have the best "selection.".

I have to say, it is a very different feel from BCV- but I do like it alot, and am glad we added on there (although BCV will always be our favorite, too). Nice to have another place to stay in that EPCOT area, ya know?

And the waiters....hmmmm....we'll see.....
