Update #10: Seeking the Spirit of Norway In More Ways Than One - Part 2

May 12th, 2012

Turns out, while we were on the Maelstrom, Dave had taken it upon himself to purchase not ONE, but THREE School Breads for our eating pleasure.

SO MUCH FOOD HOLY COW. I seriously didn't realize how much we ate this day.

Of course, knowing me, you should know that sharing these was not something I was willing to do.




Now please, stop drooling. Y'all look foolish.

I know, "That's the pot calling the kettle black then isn't it?"

Yeahh. Whatever. Judge me, it's fine.

I'm Frumpy and I know it.

I WORK OUT! (not.)


And I didn't share one bit!

Just kidding, I shared a little.

We all NOM'd (it's totally a word) on our School Bread while we watched Illuminations! It was quite the magical experience.

After we discovered new frontiers, we headed over to Mouse Gear, where I bought a stuffed Figment for Sarah.

Jess and I found this WALL of pillow pets, which was very tempting.

We headed out of the park and caught a bus back to Saratoga Springs.

Here are Jess' purchases/pin trades for the day:

Dave was tired, but the rest of us decided to go swimming. We all changed and headed down to the quiet pool in Congress Park.

Well hello there, welcome to my pool...

I loved that quiet pool! Whenever we went down it was virtually EMPTY, and the fountains and Downtown Disney view were perfect. It was amazing.

Jess and I chilled in the hot tub and she caught up on her trip journal. We met some people who came over and they were really nice. They loved our Frump shirts! It was a very relaxing end to the night.

Here is some Saratogian nighttime beauty:

QUIET: Frumps at Work.

Trip journaling is very serious business.

We headed back after about an hour and I took a shower and went to bed.

I could really go for some caramel right now! I agree, it would be so fabulous to just be able to swim in that stuff. That is probably what it's like in heaven.

You guys are brave to fight the lines for Maelstrom! But it's not to be missed, so I understand! At least you got rewarded with schoolbread at the end. LUCKY! I still have never tried that stuff and I have no idea why. Don't worry, I'll be changing that in February!

Your hot tub time sounds so relaxing. I love hot tubs. I bet they are even better while in the most perfect place on Earth!

I would love one of those replicas of Cinderella’s Castle. Actually, make that two.

These food pictures from Karamell Kuche are KILLING me.

School bread AND Illuminations. That is awesome.

I LOVE the necklace you got Jess!

That's a total ringer for a new sign to put on a door! Maybe you guys could make one and Jess could put it on her dorm door!
Whenever I'm in trouble, I turn to the Disney Bouncing Heads.

We went to Epcot on Monday and I kept joking to my husband that we had to be sure to ride Maelstrom as it is the best ride in all of WDW. Then we had to pass it up because we weren't done with our margaritas...so sad.

I also made a deer face going on Spaceship Earth. It was so funny when the video of my future started...I was cracking up. You guys should try it. (Assuming you haven't.)

Why oh why am I not on the Maelstrom RIGHT NOW?

Holy cow, yall really did eat a TON that day! Lord.

Kristen, that picture with all the school breads cracked me up!

Trip reporting is such serious business that you must take notes WHILST relaxing in the hot tub. It's a well known fact.

Finally!! I have been waiting for an update on this one for a while I know you both are busy with school so Thank You! (Jess, how did auditions go?)

I love Norway and the Maelstrom. "You are not the first to pass this vay" <3

All that school bread looks so yummy.

Those tiaras are so cute, I might pick one up in January.

School bread!!!! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways....

Very pretty photos of Saratoga Springs...we're considering that for our home DVC resort. It seems like such a peaceful, relaxing, resort...like it would be very nice to come home to at the end of a busy day of "Disneying". And the view of DTD is gorgeous!!

Great update!!

Oh dear. You go on vacation for two weeks and then have a few other things happen and it is virtually IMPOSSIBLE to get caught up on the DIS. This comment will likely be very long, and cover everything from the birth of man to the zombie apocalypse....

I am also always in the mood for WPE. At there four times in one trip once. And every meal was better than the last.

Their mac and cheese is seriously the best. However, way back in the day (at the dawn of time), it was different. Seriously, the cheese was like bright orange. Who knows what the deal was with that. Tasted amazing though.

I have to get the four cheese pesto pizza next time. Pesto is amahzing!

Dangit. I thought you were talking about the 90's grunge band. My bad.

Nice going freaking out the CM for the dancing people pin. I would expect no less from you guys.

I am impressed by that selection of pillow pets. I think one is going to have to come home with me in November....

OMG those quote pillows! AHHHHHHHH!!!!

You guys look so cute in your hot pink matching Minnie tanks.

Crystal Palace breakfast is pretty excellent. And you're right, the sole reason to go there is for the puffed french toast.

Peter Pan has always been my Mom's favorite ride, so it holds a very special place in my heart. You can't go wrong riding that.

Double Dumbo. Say that three times fast. Double Dumbo, Double Dumbo, Double Dumbo.

I can't wait to take my nephew Joaquin to the new Dumbo, if only to see him try to get the peanut out of the ground. Because you know he will try.

Who doesn't love Bean Bunny?

Haunted Mansion....ring....garbage can.....check.

Doin' the creep on Mary Poppins. Excellent.

Wow, who knew that frump could potentially be offensive. Good thing that it worked out in the end.

Nutella is my favorite food of life. I've been eating it since I was a wee one, because in Belgium (where my mom is from) it flows freely. No joke, like at restaurants, they have it in containers like JAM!! Like little jam Nutella packets.

I love that the Orange Bird is represented again at Sunshine Tree Terrace. Somewhere in my house I have an original orange bird orange cup. Like, the cup shaped like an orange.

Good thing you got back together with your puppet pals. I would have been worried if you didn't.

Norman Jr.! You guys have to take him home....

Remember, you may get wet on the Maelstrom....and potentially get accosted by a troll.

Wow, mega talented, trip journaling while sitting in the hot tub.

Next we headed to Karamell Kuche, because we just ate, so it seemed logical to eat again.
Yeah, this is my general mindset while in Disney. In the outside world, I'm all "come on Lia, you don't need that snack..." and at Disney, as soon as my stomach starts to feel less full it's like I have this instant "Must eat more" mechanism in my body that goes off.

AWWWYEAAAAH Maelstrom!!!! Thank God you were able to get on it! Last time, I was barely even able to walk into the surrounding area due to insane guest demand for this attraction.

THREE School Breads? Sounds like you had a School Bread-athon. I'm sure no one was mad.

OMG I am so sleepy right now and I just want to dive into a pile of those pillow pets. WANT.

HAHAHA That serious business photo of Jess journaling while hot tubbing is too funny. Oh I love you guys.

I am just drooling over the Karamell Kuche pictures! I think I've just picked out 3 or 8 things I really need to try.

What does school bread taste similar too? Is it filled with the custard?
