Agh, you've got a month (at least) before the tree has to be up, but we need our TR fix right now.

Wait a second. First you walk right past without stopping for a GGS, then you don't feel like shopping?

Who are you really? And what have you done with the real Jacquie???

You're right! Absolutely gorgeous!

And the castle in the background is nice too. (Glad to see you're still referring to it as 'your' castle... and I posted the pic to prove it not that long ago.)

Gotta get that shot. Which makes me wonder something.

I know you guys get your pedis before the trip in preparation for sandal wear... but there's got to be at least a small part of you that thinks, "And we better get done 'cause you know we're going to take the foot picture."

She should have bought them anyway! Loosen the band a little... don't wear 'em too long... whatever. I like 'em.

You are so right. One of my fave memories is when we stumbled upon DiVine at AK. We saw a bunch of people standing around looking at "nothing" so we stopped too. Of course after a few seconds we spotted her... but so many people rushed by and never even noticed her.

I looked at the picture first and wondered, "What is she doing?" As soon as you said "who dat", it was a perfect fit.

Thanks Kathy!

You and me both girl! Isn't it cute? She bought it at Winners (your TJ Maxx) Can't forget the foot picture....ever!

Thanks Dawn!

You are too kind,..thank you so much She was hilarious! I said to Shanleigh, now there's a princess with attitude, gave her a wave and we were off!

No, no I don't. It must be up no later than next Sunday...it's my thing I just love putting on the fire and only having the tree lit...it just makes me happy. People call me freaky and make fun of me but I'm ok with that.

Wait a second. First you walk right past without stopping for a GGS, then you don't feel like shopping?

Who are you really? And what have you done with the real Jacquie???


Something is not right in the universe when those two things happen! She's around here somewhere, probably dusting off the Christmas orgnaments to get the decorating started

As long as it's not me that has to do the dancing.


Remember the 'ol sayin....dance like no ones watchin

Well, when you compare it to the age of the universe... you're pretty much right on time.



You're right! Absolutely gorgeous!

And the castle in the background is nice too. (Glad to see you're still referring to it as 'your' castle... and I posted the pic to prove it not that long ago.)


yes....I do have proof thanks to you that it's my castle....I will keep that forever on the off chance someone tries to challenge it!

Oh, there you are Jacquie.



Yup...back...nothing to fear!
Gotta get that shot. Which makes me wonder something.

I know you guys get your pedis before the trip in preparation for sandal wear... but there's got to be at least a small part of you that thinks, "And we better get done 'cause you know we're going to take the foot picture."


You found out our secret! You have to have great looking tootsie's for the Peoplemover....I'll make sure Ruby and the girls know about this before your next trip

She should have bought them anyway! Loosen the band a little... don't wear 'em too long... whatever. I like 'em.


She agrees with you and kicks herself that she didn't get at least one!

You are so right. One of my fave memories is when we stumbled upon DiVine at AK. We saw a bunch of people standing around looking at "nothing" so we stopped too. Of course after a few seconds we spotted her... but so many people rushed by and never even noticed her.


I always find it funny when first timers come back and I ask them questions and they look at me like I have rocks in my head. Makes me cringe when they said "oh there was no time for that"...isn't that what vacation is all about?

I looked at the picture first and wondered, "What is she doing?" As soon as you said "who dat", it was a perfect fit.


It was one of those laugh out loud moments that made you laugh out loud hours later....priceless!

Staying tuned. Thanks for the chapter!

I promise it will be done before next weekend!

Thank you so much! We had a great time yesterday at my sisters! It was wonderful!

I need it in my life too...too bad I've only ever seen it in Epcot I can't wait for our next trip cause that's definitely on the list of things to drink!

So true....it burns so much even tho you have sunscreen on! We'll be more careful next time that's for sure

Great update!

Yay for more vacation!

Glad Shanleigh took a night off from studying to enjoy her birthday. How is she liking the University?

Sounds like a great night of celebrating your birthday with family and surprises!

MK is my favorite park...just something about that feeling on Main St! Loveeeeee the pics of you and Shanleigh in front of the castle, just beautiful! Love her shirt in the pic too....looks like a coral color, very pretty.

What a lovely MK morning! It's my favorite park, and I could happily spend at least a few hours there every day.

Great photos of the two of you--love your shirt!

Happy belated birthday to both of you lovely ladies. I hope that they were filled with laughter and love.

Princess T....."who dat?" Oh my.

Love the update. That's a great shot that you took of the castle. Nice composition.

I love your Canadian T. That's really cute.

Love the People Mover. After missing it all together on my last few trips, I finally rode it in October. Yeah!

Sounds like a very nice MK morning. There's nothing quite like Main Street.

The gardens in the park really are so pretty, and they make the castle look even greater. It is shameful to see families rushing from one land to the other, never slowing down to take in all the little details.

Your PP pictures in front of the castle are great!

Great morning at MK! I love the PP pictures in front of the castle. Definitely a fantastic way to start a day.
Some day I want to meet Tiana because she sounds so interesting in every report I've heard about her.

Happy Belated Birthday to you and Shanleigh~I'm so sorry I missed you both!

The MK update was wonderful though, you both just looked so happy and content. I agree WS is my favorite but Main Street, USA definitely holds a special place in my heart too.

Thanks for choosing us instead of the Christmas tree this time- looking forward to more!!!

Carla

We put ours up on Saturday during the snowstorm...it was perfect when we had all the lights off and the front blinds open watching the snow fall...bring on the season!

Hey, I wonder if we'll end up there at the same time next December

Shan said they've never had it but she will keep her eyes open and let you know if any comes in!

She is loving University....her last paper she got a 98% ... currently she holds the highest mark in the class! I'm just a little proud of her

We had a great time celebrating our birthdays...and I really need to post a picture of the special cake I had made for her!

Isn't that shirt gorgeous. She bought it at Winners (where she works) and I was amazed at how many CM's asked her where she bought it! I do have to say tho, it wasn't the easiest thing to wash with those fringes

I'm with ya girl, it's right up there for me too! I love to grab a bench in Liberty Square by the Christmas Shop and just take it all in!

Thank you so much...it was part of the Canadian Olympic line of clothing!

Thanks for the birthday wishes...we had a great few days!

Coming from you my friend, that's an amazing compliment! Thank you so much\

I bought that shirt a couple of years ago when the 2010 Olympic clothes were out and I just love it!

Glad you made it on this last trip!

I agree, there is something about walking down that street that is like nothing else in the world!

I feel so bad for people who think they have to try and do everything and see everything and they miss everything around them!

Thanks

Hey girl....look for it the next time your in The Bay...not sure if they still have them but that's where I got it!

It was a great way to start the day and I've stopped thinking "oh we'll get a picture later" and we never did so now when we think about it we do it!

We've never actually met her but just listening to her ... it's on our list for next time!

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"][COLOR="blue"]Hey there friend! Thank you so much for the b-day wishes!

Yup, completely agree, my two fav places too!

The tree went up this past Saturday during our first snowstorm of the season...one thing off the list!

Great job, Shanleigh! I'm sure she will continue to do great in school, very impressive!

Yes! I would love to see a picture of the cake you made...I cannot bake to save my life!

Too funny her own coworkers asked her where she got her shirt from...haha.
