Are most people taking their own alcohol onboard? I am hoping to pick some up on the Friday night after our flight - from looking at google maps there seems to be a large Walmart near the hotel we are staying in, so will do that, get some dinner, then collapse into bed exhausted!
PJ Day!!! Awesome!

I always bring my own. Easier and I am always guaranteed the drink I like. I buy the liter bottles of Stoli Vanil, then bring my own cup and use the Diet Coke from the fountain. Tastes like cream soda!

Of course, I still do buy cocktails at dinner and in Wavebands/Diversions. No, I don't have a drinking problem. I just *sound* like a lush. HAHAHA.

I had to chuckle when starting to catch up here...

Had our first trip to our new Trader Joe's in our area.

And then afterwards to Costco. They had one of the "rotating vendors" set up near the milk dept that was sampling "frozen concoctions". It was three bags for just under $18 and even without the alcohol, the ones I sampled tasted good.

Just now took out the bags to google it: http://www.ltblender.com/

And on the back of the bag:

"Imported from Galveston Island, TX" LOL!!!!

These look very simple to buy your bottle of tequila, rum, Malibu, etc -- mix in your cabin, and store in your fridge. I asked how many servings, and was told 16 servings.... but that's 4 ounces. So I figured really 8 servings if I am realistic.

Might be an option for those not ashamed to have a stash of fruity drinks in your cabin. The screw top cap looks to be sturdy as well. Looking at their website they seem to be $7.99 each and we paid under $6 each at Costco. Plus, they can be packed in my luggage - just bring the alcohol on separately in carryon.

Hubby was with me, he thought three was enough. They leave my Costco on Sunday so I might be making a sneaky trip back....

My new best friend!!



I see a pre-dinner cocktail hour in the Promenade lounge developing!! Me and my girls love that lounge before dinner because they always have live music and it's near the dining rooms.
Vodka drinkers, UNITE! I wish they had Absolut Peppar on board. That makes the best Bloody Mary...

Kirbo, my DH doesn't drink either. I always tell everyone that I married my designated driver.

Mine very rarely does either. Two is about my limit.

Believe it or not one of the BEST Bloody Marys I've ever had was at the Animal Kingdom Rainforest Cafe during brunch. It had some kind of cajun spices and home made potato chips as the garnish on top. It was a drink and an appetizer!

Yep! And I think they knew we were taking it either way. I just said unexcused absences, withdraw her so I can homeschool, whatever. I knew the law that she's not even required to attend kindergarten in our state because of her date of birth. The big question is being able to return into that program, which I foresee no issues with academically on that test. But because we DID start kindergarten, we are supposed to have "regular attendance".

Cranberry, Pineapple, Malibu. Prefer it to be "half Malibu, half fruit juices" and hope I get a friendly bartender.

Just because I don't drink, don't worry about me thinking anything of any of you drinking

I budget an enormous amount each month for Costco . But it's an hour away, so I can only go once a month . I can happily spend two hours there.

Much more useful than prince charming!

My DH doesn't drink either. We're so boring now

For those playing around with graphics, remember we have our DISigner forum here with folks more than happy to help create unique designs for you! Some also have blanks you can personalize or they can. There are literally zillions of beautiful designs out there! (okay, maybe not zillions, but you get the idea)

Here's the "Meet the DISigner" thread of various folks along with their shareware sites:

Here is an example of making a request and someone filling it on that thread (each DISigner has a certain way they like requests, so look at their thread):
