Which means I have largish expenses in my near future (like a wedding, and hopefully a very short honeymoon-sadly not Disney since my fiance doesn't have any vacation time until after the new year and we plan to marry in early December). He wants to go on a cruise sometime next year, so I suppose I could still end up at Disney then....
Congrats dear...I know you must be beyond Disney happy!

He is a very social person, though, so paring down his side of the guest list could be difficult. There is a very small chance we might move it up to 10/11/12, but I am not sure we will be able to get everything set up quite that quick, so we will see

I hate coming back, but at least you have your birthday weekend to look forward to, and help with the post-Disney depression!
Congratulations! Plentyof Fish huh? Never heard of that one but I think I may have to take a look!

I just returned from Disney last night and had a fantastic time. Was able to sneak in some adult time and explored EPCOT for places to enjoy adult beverages.

For now it is back to reality and work. School is starting this week and I haven't done anything to prepare.

I am getting ready for my long needed birthday week in a few weeks. I am getting away for a nice relaxing long weekend. I can't believe I soon will be 29.

I hope that anyone is in the path of the storm stays safe. Have a great Monday!
CT, it was great seeing you on Friday. Wish we could have gotten together some more. Your mom is a riot. You are just a younger version of her. LOL. Had a great time at the wine bar. Can't wait to see you in October.

I personally don't need a bartender, since I have my Private stash of Rum
however I think you should stick around because you're cool, plus as long as you're here serving up drinks, people stay away from me rum

Something that makes packing more tolerable? Beer.


Something that make packing more difficult? Beer...

And I still managed to wrap and pack dishes... Although that was before I finished the first one.

I'm saving the 2 bottles of unopened wine for after the move... I think I'll need it.


Also, for those of you that live out near Lancaster, I went to spend the day with one of my best friends from college... Here's my question, why is it such a tourist hub? Having lived so close my whole life, I just don't get it...

We did have a great time. In October we will have more time to hang out. The wine bar is a great place to hang out, even though it was pouring. It was so good to see the both of you!

Consider yourself "signed up". I'll add your name to the list keeping track of everyone on the first post. You can always reference that post if you get lost around here for a bit since I'm trying ot keep it updated with any details as they are decided upon.

Beyond that.... We'll be using that list to PM details and contact info closer to the date so that we can actually meet up.

Congrats! Guess that means We'll have to change you from a to a now, doesn't it?

And I THINK we can excuse your lack of Disney trips with this news.

So I'm thinking the SSC can take credit for this successful hookup as well. If I recall correctly, we were the ones who helped push you to actually take a shot when you were talking about blowing off the date.

to the SSC! Always love having new people join us. Go ahead, pull up a chair, and order a drink and our bartender will be right with you. In the meantime, feel free to jump into the conversation around here. We can be pretty random, but it can be a TON of fun!

It's the Amish. People seem to think those backward black-wearing people are interesting enough to go and see and buy their stuff.

Beyond that, There are the outlets. That's about all I can figure.

So far so good with school. I've done a 5 paragraph essay for my English class(finished and submitted it yesterday in 2.5 hours and it's not due until tonight ), a reading assignment and practice test for Theater, and 3 section quizzes for math(which I aced! ). Let's see if I can keep up this pace all semester. If I can I should have no issues passing! *crosses fingers*
