Wow, Ms. Kat! She will be a knock out in that dress!!

She will certainly take your boys breath away when she walks down that aisle.

No worries, life catches up with us. I understand this allllllll to well.

So glad you were able to get the ADR's the way you wanted them for Cape May, I'm still hemming and hawing about this one.

What a beautiful dress, Kathy!

Kathy, please don't be cross with me if I go silent over the next four weeks. I don't know how much "decent" internet access we will have and I will try to catch up with all my threads but not sure I will have time to answer much.

Wow Kathy, I just read through your PTR, and again "wow" congrats on your son's engagement. It looks like I am going to miss you at CSR next month, my friend and I don't arrive until the 26th. I am heading back to CSR for my 5th stay, and cannot wait!

It was a great day, Amanda. It really is a very nice zoo (and NOT too big).

They are the sweetest kids, and very polite too!

Loved my winnings...I'm already looking at Disney bags online.

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!?!?
Thanks, Lisa. I love the dress too...now if they only had it!

The animals were really active (well, except the polar bear because he was too darn hot).

Barry and Bambi did well with their brood.

Thanks, Camille. Mark will be an awesome Grandpa...because he'll be able to send them home.

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
Alisha loved my choice of dress, but I've not been able to find it at any store.

Yes, I plan on getting a Dooney when we are at Disney.

Madison is a great big sister.

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!
Thank you, Queen. I love a DIS meet and so glad that I've met DISer's who live nearby. I hope your DIS meet goes (went) well.

Isn't that a cute Buzz shirt? I wonder where he got it.

LOVE LOVE LOVE unexpected money. Especially when I get to spend it on ME!

That dress is gorgeous! The first dress was very pretty, but I immediately thought it looked very uncomfortable and a bride needs to be comfy. There is alot of standing, sitting, and dancing going on. This dress looks much better in that respect! And I like the true white color better too. She will be beautiful!

No worries Kathy about the PTR stuff... you are a very busy (and popular) woman!!!

Take care!
Thanks, Brenda. Now, if I could only pick one Disney bag...I found three I'd love to have.

As you know by now, I'm all over your PTR.

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.
Thanks, Ann. I like all of our plans thus far, and LOVE my CP for breakfast.

Shannon and Tim make such a cute couple too...so glad they met here on the DIS.

Starbucks gets more expensive, their help leaves a lot to be desired. I wish I could fall in love with someone else's coffee, but so far I've not been able to.

Too cool that you had a dismeet. The kiddos are too cute!
It was HOT at the zoo, but there are a lot of trees for shad.

We had a fun time at the DISmeet.

Love the zoo- Always great when you can do a day trip like that. A little bit of Disney goes a long way.
I've always liked the lighter purple shades--lavender and lilac.

It was a fun meet with Barry, Bambi and the kids.

Great DIS meet! Looks like a fun time all around!

Love your dress you chose for the wedding!
You have a GREAT zoo, and we've already decided to make it a yearly trip (now, if I could just win $900 on the way home every trip it would be perfect!).

Thanks...I hope I can find the dress.

Ryder is just adorable and has such a sweet smiel.

Disney bag for Kathy and the rest for more fun Disney stuff.

Absolutely...and he did NOT leave a crumb.

It was our pleasure Kathy! We had a great time an really need to do that more often!

I agree...I hope it's not so far between for the next visit.


She loves being a big sister!

And a great one she is.


That was actually a gift from Kathy when he was born. He picked it out that day, so we let him wear it.

He wanted to make Auntie Kathy happy by wearing the outfit...actually, Mark picked it out when we bought it.

I was there too you know.
Yeah, but you aren't as cute as Ryder.

I guess it is your $900 to do with what you please, but I'd be putting that into the Disney vacation fund.
Andy, those wild animals were tame compared to Barry.

Oh, trust me, most of it is going to the Disney fund...Dooney is part of Disney you know!

Looks like a great time and fun DISmeet with Barry and family! And congrats on the $900 win!! Talk about a day trip paying off............
thanks, Marv. It was great fun and the weather was terrific. We ended up missing most of the bad weather on the way home.

It was a great day trip paying off.

It was a fun DISmeet, Glenn. And we avoided the IRS; my ticket was under $600, and Mark's was a ticket for $100 and then he had chips from blackjack for the rest...we went and cashed in everything separately.

Glad you got to meet Barry, Bambi, Madison, Evan and Ryder. Getting a bonus at the casino is

We will be here when you can update.
You've been a busy girl so I am glad I slowed this thing down (although I'm pretty sure I said from the beginning it would be a slow moving PTR) so you could catch up easier.

It was fun seeing Barry and Evan for a second time and meeting the rest of the family.

We're going to live on the wild side. It'll give me more room for Disney snacks. We finally got our airfare booked since we decided to add another day. Our flight is due to land a little after 10am. So, you may see some random gal staring you down at the ME. Just ignore her lol.
Hi, stranger...I've missed you around here. It's been at least five years since we've been to Cape May for dinner so anxiously looking forward to going back. No ADR's? I don't know if I could do that. If that "random gal" is staring me down, you better say hello.

Tell her to leave plenty of time to get into the dress. My friend got married and had a dress with a lace up back. We lost track of time as we were chatting before the ceremony. The next thing we knew we were jumping into our dresses and helping her lace up her dress as quickly as possible. We didn't leave hardly any time for some bride with her bridesmaids photos!
Thanks, Kelly. I will be sure to pass on that info to her. She has to have her "girl time."

Amanda, they are besides themselve about the house. The new sofas are being delivered at 2 or 3 and Alisha will be waiting for them while Mark is signing all the paperwork. I will pass on your congrats.

She will be a beautiful bride, even if she were in a papersack.

Thanks; I just wish real life would slow down a tad (well, not getting to my vacation time slow down, but you know what I mean).

I just want those crab legs...I could care less about the rest of the food at the buffet.

I believe Alisha will be stunning and she has a great figure too.

Hi, my friend. I'm glad you found me. Actually, we aren't at CSR next month, but OKW. We're at CSR for Mark's surprise 60th in December and we can't wait to be home. But I'm sorry we will miss you in any event.

Suz, that is too funny. I liked the first dress too, but it just wasn't "doing it" for me. It was beautiful, but just not what I had pictured Alisha going with. This new dress just has her written all over it and I think she will look stunning. I do have to remember to ask her if she is getting a veil or what...lI keep forgetting.


Okay, I think I'm all caught up on replies. I'm starving so I'm going to go out and get some lunch and I'll do an update this afternoon.
