welcome to our world! it seems we are all coming back from various trips so you will see more of us on here. as always feel free to strike up any conversation or add to one already started. we'll talk about anything....one conversation we had dealt with shoes...and it wasn't started by one of the princesses!

to the SSC! We always love having more people join us, and it's also good to have another PA guy join the crew. (You hear that ladies? If you want a SSC Guy, your best odds come from a trip to PA. )

Silly Diva. We've had much more than just ONE conversation about shoes in the history of this group. Somehow it seems like a reoccurring topic.

Speaking of which, I think it's about due for another appearance. Since weather is warming up it's that time of year when your footwear can start to move away from the practical into the more fun varieties.

ok was trying not to scare all the newbies right off the bat with talks of shoes!
and yes I do believe it is time for new walking shoes before I go to FL next month.

and as for the *ahem* "party" depending on who the players are will tell you the direction it will go...which I'm guessing is south
The housewarming was really fun..A lot more people came than I thought and a few ended up staying the night due to impairment of one sort or another...lol. Im sorry you couldn't come but hopefully one day you can come by for drinks and hang out. LOLOLOL on the "partay"...listen, usually my parties end up going south so I wont be surprised in the least. Its more fun that way usually, anyway... If I don't see you in May, I guess it will be October?? Do you know if the other Diva is going? I would hate to miss out on the fun while you are there! IM just going to head down a few days before the 13th to Disney, then do the wedding and then a couple days more at disney and come back on the 16th.

I can host it, or if someone wants to try and earn some free stuff, they can host it. Im celebrating my b-day at the time also so I would love to get a suite of some sort. Actually Im real out of the loop for the Oct meetup so maybe I should the facts on that first, but worse case, I can host.

Don't worry... there isn't really a loop that extends outside the Houston area right now. The 2 Houston 's offered to plan the thing, so other then a date I don't even know much right now. (honestly, I'm kinda expecting to not hear a whole lot till the summer when 1/2 the duo get a little bit more breathing room in available time).

Anybody else thinking they may end up getting a suite someplace? (DVC anyone? ) I know I'll probably be getting a 1bdrm unit over at Bonnett Creek, but I'm pretty sure that wouldn't be a good location if nothing more than being really hard for those traveling via Disney Transport not having a good way to get there or back.

We will be on the planning as we get a bit closer! I will probably rent a DVC room, I always do. I should probably start seeing what is available! How many of us will there be, do we have a tally anywhere on who is coming? I usually rent a studio, but if someone wanted to coordinate with me on the room the 1 bedrooms are a nice size and then we could host from there.

I know I'll be there... but I've got my timeshare to stay at. I'm also guessing the will be there.... but he's got his always available room. I don't think we've gotten anywhere close to a headcount yet on who's gonna be in attendance yet.

Uh, I just showed up to welcome all newbies. I can say that the Pyrate probably started the shoe conversation. As for the October trip, me and my SO will probably still be in town. Looking forward to meeting some new peeps.

We are easily distracted.

I will probably have a suite. I am going to be in Clearwater during the trip time so will come over on the weekend and have a suite and a car. Feel free to post and I will gladly accept crashers.

A headcount on those even anticipating on coming would be good. That will help decide on who needs to book rooms. I am willing but I will be living on the gulf coast and need time to plan.

Oh and welcome to the newbies who have shown up as of late. . .We have meet planned for the middle of October. Please feel free to join up. We welcome all those wanting to meet new people. Oh and my BF can help with Starwood room discounts if anyone is interested.

My US/IOA passport is burning a hole in my pocket. . .need friends willing to go. My BF is not into it. I go when I can but prefer to not do solo. Hopefully, some of the DISmeet crowd will want a day trip.

Man I would need to win the lotto or Britt would have to get a REALLY great paying job. haha. I don't see either of those happening so unless someone want's to volunteer to bankroll the trip as a wedding gift we won't be down until December 2012 or sometime next year.

I have the weekend marked off on my vacation calendar. I'm thinking about staying at the BW, maybe renting points?

Darcy, good news that you can make it. A trip to WDW isn't the same without meeting you for a drink or two.


As for the meet, I am looking forward to meeting everyone. It's going to be a blast. Hope everyone has a great weekend. What does everyone have planned?
I have a bit to do around my house, then help DS plan his birthday party. Tonight will be spent enjoying some wine. I might even open the bottle I brought back from my vacation last weekend. Hope everyone has a great day.

I'm definitely not holding my breath. Thing's aren't looking too good at the moment honestly. We'll see though I guess. Got some irons in the fire a bit further back east(Dallas/Ft. Worth and Houston to be specific) so we'll see what happens.
