I'm all caught up! Your plans sound great for September & December. I loooove Yachtsman. I really like the shirts you found, too- especially the Dumbo one.

I'm getting caught up Kathy! Wow, that dress is absolutely gorgeous. I love the sweeping skirt and the uplift in the front. So classy! (Coincidently, I just did a post in my PTR for my youngest sons wedding and in comparison my mother of the bride dress was rather uhh...uninspiring next to yours! )

Love the Ts! Especially the Dumbo shirt.

[QUOTE=jenseib;45711636]that dress is gorgeous...and much better than a lot of the "mom" dresses I often see.

Thanks, Jen. I can't wait to see it in person.

This will be our first trip to Yachtsman and I am really looking forward to it.

Thank you. I'm going to go subscribe to your PTR (I don't think I have up to now) and will catch up on it tomorrow (I want to do a quick DIS meet update and then head to bed...it's been a long day.

DIS Meet

As I posted earlier in the week, we had a DIS meet in Milwaukee today. First, Mark and I drove to the Milwaukee County Zoo. It's been over 30 years since we were there, and it is a really great zoo. A few of the animals we saw:







A VERY happy man:



My favorite:



















From there, it was off to Mo's Irish Pub to meet Barry (FreezinRafiki), and his beautiful family -- Bambi, his wife, and their three children--Madison, Evan and the newest addition, Ryder.

We had a great meal and a great visit. As we all know, no DIS meet actually happened unless there is proof. So here you go:







And last, but not least, the whole gang:



Barry and family, thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet up with us. We had a great time and hope we don't have to wait another year to see you guys. Have a great trip to Florida.

After we left the group, Mark and I stopped at Pottowami Casino where between the two of us we proceeded to win $900. Can you say HELLO NEW DISNEY PURSE???????

We then stopped at the Premium Outlet Mall and got Mark a new pair of dress shoes before he heads to Vegas on Friday for a trade show.

Tomorrow we are going to see Mark's mom, and I promise a DISNEY update tomorrow.

First off, love the dress! I'm with Jen, it doesn't look anything like any of the mother of the bride dresses I'm used to seeing.

Second, it looks like you two got to see some great animals at the zoo. I so wish our zoo was nice like that instead of being run down and in a not-so-great part of town.

Third, yay for the Dis Meet! Aren't those kids of Barry and Bambi, the cutest ever!?!?

Gorgeous dress for the wedding Kathy! I hope that it passes approval from the bride, 'cause you're gonna look stunning in it!

Woo HOo! Congrats on the big win! Are you getting a Dooney?

Great pics from the DisMeet! That's an adorable baby they've got, and I love the pic of Madison feeding Ryder

Great pics from the zoo Kathy! There is nothing like a Dis-meet and I think the thing I love the most is ... we can have them anywhere As a matter of fact, we're having one next weekend at pkondz and can't wait! It's been a year and a half since we've seen them so we're definitely overdue!

The kids are so cute!! I love the little one's Buzz shirt....too cute!

Girl....don't you love when unexpected money comes your way! I'm a firm believer when that happens to not ever use it on something you need but on something you want that you would never buy yourself otherwise! SO happy for you hon!

Day 6 is off to a great start! Are those pictures from your trip last fall? I love the fall decorations! I can't wait to go back to see them.



CP for breakfast... SO good.

How cool about the engaged couple and them meeting here on dis!!!

6 days an no starbucks Actually, I am learning to live without it. I still love the coffee and will make it at home... but our local starbucks... It is so gross They pull the shots and let them sit... the acid goes through the roof on them then... the coffee always is then bitter. If I do go (and believe me.. I still do ) I will order things with half the pumps..cause one pump to them is like a half cup. I have wrote in to corporate to complain... and I have had my share of free drink coupons... but really... there is only so many free drinks that I want.. What I WANT is for them to make a cup of coffee right.
