Hey Joni! I finally made it over and I'm all caught up with your updates. I LOVE the TR so far - it is so much fun to read and I feel like I'm right there with you!

I love stopping at Cracker Barrel on the way to Florida. When I would go on vacation with my grandparents (and even now when we drive down with them) we always stop there.

Ok, what kind of restaurant doesn't serve sodas? Being a non-orange juice drinker, I would have had a really hard time! I can't do without my diet coke!

I'm interested to hear what was making you sad - I hope it's nothing too bad!

Yeah! Another Joni trip report! I can't belive I missed the fact that you had a trip planned for this summer while reading your last report. As always you report is making me LOL

The pack mule story cracked me up. When we stayed at the BWV in March my parents picked my daugher up the Wednesday before we arrived on Friday when she was released from her college lacrosse spring break travel trip in West Palm. They took her to their house in Naples for two days, and then brought her to us in Orlando where they all stayed with us for the first two days of our trip. My dad is cheap about tipping and did not want to pay a bellhop to take all their crap in the car to our room. Once they opened the trunk, and I saw all the junk, I said I would tip the bellhop as I was not a pack mule! I ended up tipping their bellhop as well as our ME person.

I am also loving all the HP references. Yes, I am a HP nerd too. Can't wait to hear what you thought of RP. We are staying there in December to get FOL and early entry before we move over to VWL.

Can't wait to hear more and gald your eye is better.

Enjoyed a great March 2011 trip staying at the Boardwalk.
Enjoyed a great December 2011 trip to our home resort VWL with a short visit to see Harry Potter.
Enjoyed a great October 2012 trip at BLT.
Enjoyed a last minute surprise trip to Disneyland February 2013.
Enjoyed a great October 2013 trip to Saratoga Springs with our daughter and her college friends

Coming over from your PTR! I love your updates so far! I think it's very cool that you were able to catch the twins filming a commercial.
I know it's still far off, but I can't wait to see how John reacted to AKL!

Life Update!

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for reading along on my TR! I'm so sorry I haven't posted an update lately! John and I have been very busy. We are currently in the process of buying a house () and getting ready for John to deploy (). I hope I haven't lost any of my readers! I promise I will be back tomorrow to reply to everyone's comments and post the next update. You're gonna want to read this one, because there's a little bit of a surprise coming up!

Just to tide you over until I post more random and crazy trip pictures, here's our new house!

Okay, see y'all tomorrow with a great update, I promise!

Girl, you are hilarious! I don't read many TRs and usually just lurk, but this I'm subbing to.

I'm from GA, and live in the coouuntryy! When I was younger I had an accent so thick I practically needed a translator. Not sure what happened to it. I just sort of lost it over time. It pops out real quick when I'm around someone else with an accent though.

While I live in GA now, I grew up in SC..Columbia to be exact. I saw the Cracker Barrel photo and knew which one ya'll visited. LOL! And the Palmetto trees..loved the photos. Don't see them around here.

For us the halfway point is in GA. Seems wrong to be halfway to WDW and still be in your home state. I totally get what you are saying about hitting the FL border though. You just want to be there, and like you it is still 3 hrs. ahead of us. Of course at that point I feel like I'm making progress because I'm no longer in GA. For all the folks that responded about traveling from MS and AL. I really feel for ya'll. My sister lived in Ocala for a short while. One time we travelled with our kids from her house to visit our mom who lives in SW Miss. Holy cow! I thought we'd never get out of FL.

I was practically rolling in the floor at your description of Butterbeer. That was hilarious. Elton John singing you a song he wrote about the first time you had Butterbeer. LOL!!! I'm one of the few people in the universe who isn't in to Harry Potter at all. I do like reading people's reports of the WWoHP though. It seems like a neat place to visit just from a themeing perspective. Maybe I'll get around to visiting it one day.

Well I'm in for the long haul. Can't wait to read more!

Love the new house - what a great buy!

That's sad about John having to leave again - enjoy spending some quality time with him before he goes.

Joni, the new house is beautiful! I know it's not trip related, but I hope you will post some more pictures of it! I love home pictures! Congrats to you and John! I'm so sorry he'll he deploying soon, but at least you've got a new project to occupy your mind and your time while he's away.
