The reason I'm so excited....well, besides the obvious, is that I didn't quite make my goal for last week. I was so dissappointed in myself for not making goal yesterday, but today I get up and was pleasantly surprised by not only making my goal (over by .75 of a lb.) but hitting my 60 lb. mark too!! Weight is a funny thing, it seems like just when I think I'm not getting anywhere, all of a sudden the body decides to finally get with the program.
CONGRATULATIONS LADY!!!! YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!

Congratulations on reaching your goal! That is fantastic and what motivation to keep up the great work!

Wow you are so organised with your pins and pressed pennies

Your bag looks pretty good too - love bags with lots of pockets! Is it a shoulder bag?

I think you will love CSR. It is such a beautiful resort. I love all the mods. You can can't go wrong with any of them.

Cute bagallini!

Your pins are adorable. I have to admit, I am so tired right now that I just skimmed your update, but I promise I will read it in detail tomorrow. I just had to stop in and say WOOOOOOOOOT and YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOH!
No worries girl! You'll read when you can. And thank you for your words of congrats!!

This was just my experiences last Sept. I will be bringing the pennies again in Nov.
Thank you, again sweet, Dis sis. Ooooo, penny ideas.....Okay! I promise to keep them in our luggage. I'm thinking there's a funny story there. Advice noted and filed away for the trip! Thank you!

I am so glad that you saw what we did in the Coronado back in 2000 when we first stayed there and that you now love it as much as we do.

Love the pins.
I truly appreciate your support, Ms. Kat.
I'm so glad we did too!! It's such a beautiful place to come home to at the end of a long park day. I can't imagine having a resort we love more.
I thought the pins were cute too, but they are for trading so they are perfect.

I love how we all have that in common, isn't it great we all have people here who totally understand our crazy planning methods?!? And if they don't.....well, they hide it well!

OMGosh! Steve/Nebo!! Thank you so much! I'm working really hard to hit my goal of a 100 lb. by next May.
I'm still reading your TR. I know the big event is just around the corner, huh? Loved hearing Smidgy on video this time around.

Thank you Lana, I'm hoping to hit my next short term goal (70 lb. lost= kg 31.75) by Thanksgiving!!

Wow you are so organised with your pins and pressed pennies

I don't know about that, but I try to find little ways to keep things together or to find an easier way to do things for the trip. The Dis is always full of great ideas and if I find a good one that works for us and it helps keep me busy during my year or two of planning, then all the better!

Your bag looks pretty good too - love bags with lots of pockets! Is it a shoulder bag?
Looooove my baggallini messenger. I get it in the rip stop nylon so it's not as heavy as the crinkle. It's a cross body bag actually, usually a lot easier to carry than a shoulder bag, less cumbersome than a full on backpack.

We already love CSR, stayed there last time. And thank you on the bag, it's the only one I've found so far that makes sense, and trust me I've looked. Still do, you never know when you'll find another really great bag!!

No funny story, just drama. Basically DH almost missed our flight because of them.

He had the treadmill last Friday and it was good!! His Dr said that we really don't need to worry about his PSA readings. That although it is high that they aren't that high and the follow up with urology is merely a formality. He has started getting his energy back so I am hoping that it has just been a really long lasting virus. Thank you for asking.

Yikes! Over pennies?!? How silly. I've taken them before and I'm pretty sure I always leave them in the suitcases because I don't want the added weight when I'm lugging around the big backpack.

Michele, I'm so glad to hear this. I've been thinking about you and hubby, been praying for y'all.

Finding Nebo is still the greatest Pixar film, whoops, sorry, Nemo, happens all the time and yes, life was brutat whent hat movie came out, but it could be worse, can you imagine being named Elmo when that doll was a big hit?

But anyway, Nemo was the best Pixar,,, but I still think the best DIsney movie is The Lion King, that's my all time fave.

It's funny you say this because I was just saying the same thing on the way home from the movie.
Finding Nemo is my favorite Pixar movie made yet. I was emotional when seeing it because my son finished his last day of grade school on the same day we saw the movie. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney. Loved me some Lion King though, there were so many that Disney produced during that era that I love dearly. Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King.....it didn't get much better than that until Pixar started out with Toy Story.

I can only imagine how brutal that time was for you, Nebo/Nemo. Poor Nebo.
