I hope you guys will understand why I'm so happy...dh hoards money, so I always have a secret fund for vacation. I just added it all up and I have so many universal gift cards, the envelope is stretched...and because they are gift card, we have no choice but to use them. Ha on him and his frugality. He can't say no to any of my ideas for spending money so he can bite me...onward to portofino!!! Yay!

Mac's the best to go to HHN with. Of course, she might say the same about me (I'm a screamer, haha). I spent most of my week in Florida with Mac in 2011 and it was one of my best trips!

Glad you are now have a phone again. I'm thinking of upgrading too, when my contract expires next month. Any big differences between the 4 and 5?

Happy Monday all! Heat advisory today and the next few days. Can you say hot? Even the dog doesn't want to stay outside that much.

I bet you don't feel lost now. I don't know about anyone else but I can't live without my iPhone unless I'm on vacation.

I have had iPhones since the first release day. Boy they have come a long way.

I've met quite a few of my online friends over the course of the past ten years. In fact, the lady I go to the parks with is an online friend that became almost family over the course of the years.

My invisible friends are sometimes kinder than my real friends.

Faster, thinner, better display, better camera(s). I'm still getting used to the display cause the colors are more vibrant or something. Especially yellow. That's the only big difference I notice. The first list is selling points on Apple's website lol

Hi guys! May be a silly question..

When the park first opens.... do you wait at ticket gates or are you allowed in the park to get in line for rides? I'm referring to both WDW and UO please.

Believe it or not, I have had nine two-week holidays to Florida, doing theme parks every day, and I've never been there at opening time :O I've always went with family who are a bit more chilled but this time I'm going with my best friend who is up for early rises to get to parks early (for the first few days at least!).

Any helps/tips would be fab! Thanks guys
