The wedding plans all look great! I say if you want cupcakes, you should have them! And - wow - to the jeweler screwing up like that!!!! Glad it got you a lower price, but WOW.

I don't think you're weird for not caring about the cake. I didn't care about mine, either, and my mom SO cared about it. So I told her she could buy it and pick whatever she wanted (as long as the colors worked with what I wanted). Done deal!

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

First, I think that you and Bob are a gorgeous couple. As a person who rebuffed and then married her best friend several years later, I love your story.

Your dress is beautiful!! You look stunning (and so young!) in it.

I also hate being the center of attention (my showers were borderline painful), but having Bob with you should take a bunch of the pressure off. Just remember that everyone who attends loves you guys and are excited to share your day.

I've worked in restaurants for years, and from a catering perspective the cupcakes will actually be easier for the staff to make and serve, so I don't think you should have a problem getting them to agree to that. People love cupcakes, I think if that's what you want then you should have it.

And, if you're thinking about getting some vinylmation for the big day-they're on sale on the Disney Store's website right now.

Can't wait to read more!
uhm, ok, I pretty much love you, so thank you for all that! I'm REALLY happy to have lurkers come out of lurkdom! I so enjoy writing these, and seeing everyone makes it that much better! Sorry Ive lamed out lately, not much to write, or its not perfect in my head yet lol! stick around though, its bound to get interesting with bdays,and holidays coming up!

One year ago

Been having a rough time lately.. lots of fights with the future hubs, not handling back to school well (me), BUSY with work, not sure what to do wedding wise, etc..... So I started thinking, what with my a few of my Dis family going to WDW this week, or now living there, where was I a year ago?

One year ago, I was in Disney World with my future matron of honor and one of my bff Michele. I started my day at DAK and ended with Ohana! (to read about it some more, go here and here !

One year ago I had Ohana for dinner... man do i wish I had Ohana for dinner tonight!

One year ago I was NOT engaged to my bff, but man was I HOPING he would pop the question while in WDW!

One year ago, my baby boy was entering kindergarten!

One year ago my baby girl was still in elementary school !

One year ago, I was a nanny, and it was my bosses birthday today!

One year ago my sister was NOT pregnant and due next week!

One year ago, I had WAY more mental issues than I do now! (goooooo therapy!)

One year ago I was just 30. Not 31, just 30.

One year ago I had a silver Chrysler mini van.

One year ago i thought I knew it all, now I know its good to let other people know things too!

One year ago seems like a lifetime ago, yet days lately are flying by faster than ever!

Thank you all for sticking around or just joining in. My life is an adventure, and I'm glad to have you all in it!


Hopefully I'll have a fun post soon... not sure what to write about next? May just start the Disney portion, not that I have much!

I have put NO thought into anything Disney or Wedding related at all. All big things are booked, and now I kinda have no clue where to start with other stuff

You are just stressed out right now with new school routine, working a lot and planning a wedding. It is totally normal.


Just don't forget to breathe and enjoy your wedding planning. It really can be a lot of fun

It's amazing what a difference a year can make! Some good, some not so good, but in the end, it all comes out in the wash (so said my Bama!)

We have been pretty hectic here as well, and I blame it on school. Having hte summer to be lazy then snapping back into reality really makes for a hard transition!

Have you booked you meals yet? I am assuming you are going Deluxe again?

Since I don't really have any wedding stuff to share with you, I figured i'll start with the PTR portion!


Who: US!
What:Disney familymoon!
Where:
When: January 27-Feb 4 ( not nearly enough time, but I guess I can't complain!)
Why: HONEYMOON!


So, here's the deal... WE CRAY CRAY! For some reason, we thought it would be a good idea to leave for Disney the day after our wedding. Why cray cray you ask? Because we are DRIVING! Yeah, not sure how or why we thought we would have the energy to drive to Disney the day after our BIG DAY, but we did, and now it's all booked and planned, and well, that's that! PRAY for us!

On a bright side, we got a new mini van! well, a new used mini van, which is better on gas, and actually has working heating/air! and not all dinged up! and TONS of room! I plan on packing the van up the weekend before, or earlier that week, before it gets overly stressful! Good idea? I figure between all the other vehicles from family we can use theirs to transport stuff to our wedding!


http://s965.photobucket.com/albums/ae136/Inkedupdisneymomma/For%20Disney%202013%20PTR%20WPJ/?action=view&current=101.jpg[IMG]

It's not as "fancy" as our last one, but the last one looked and was a POS! So far, I love this one and how it drives! I bet we will miss the DVD player on the way down though.. or not at all? Jack's got and itouch and Kayla has an iphone, not to mention her lap top, our ipad, and both have a DS...so, I think coupled with homework, books, and crafts, we will be just fine!

So, as I said, we cray! On the plus side, Jophia are ALSO leaving the day after, so we will have the entire trip with them! Sadly though, they are leaving much earlier than we are! Seeing as Joe will drive the whole way, that makes sense!

This year, I plan on driving the first leg of the trip! If you recall last year, Bob driving first was NOT a good idea! (click the link) Hopefully I will be on a high from the day before and the fun ahead, and hopefully me driving first, during the day, will give Bob time to sleep some more and just rest up after our awesome wedding!

We are hoping to be on the road by 11/12, same as last years goal! As of now we plan on driving straight through, not sure if this will work, but if it doesn't, hopefully we can find a place to stop for the night! Actually, Bob and I haven't really discussed it all now that I think about it! So, I'll get back to you on that :D

If we don't stop, we anticipate an early arrival of around 9/10 a.m. Last year we were very lucky and our room was ready when we got there! I was VERY happy about that! I wanted a shower so bad, and it was great to be able to go unpack and unwind right away!

If this happens, I would really like to go right to EOS for lunch:hy per:

I love that place, may even be my favorite. Just sayin.



After filling our bellies with that yumminess we will head over to Epcot! Today will be an easy day, it HAS to be! Whatever we do, we do! No stress, just soaking in the love and fun!

Originally we planned on a first night dinner with Jophia. But due to her newer diet restrictions, and general lack of love for the option, it will just be the four of us.

So where does one eat on the first night of their Disney Familymoon?



Why, Biergarten OF COURSE! Bob loved it here last trip, and the kids did too! It really is a fun place, and the food isn't bad! Great way to start the the trip off! We really will miss Jophia here though! Bob was REALLY looking forward to drinking with Joe lol!

After dinner, we are heading back to the room! No if's and or buts! The next morning we have a fairly early ADR at new to Bob, but oldie but goody to us restaurant!

Quick fly-bye before we leave in less than 10 hours.

As someone else said, remember to BREATHE and to enjoy the planning of your wedding. It will ALL work out.

Plans to start the Disneymoon sound great. And, yes, you best start the driving this time around.

See you in two weeks...don't update too much while I'm gone.

Very cool start to your Familymoon! I absolutely love POFQ!

If we didn't book our rooms already I might have tried driving this time....MAYBE! It's a good 24 hour drive for me though....yikes, I don't know if I could take 24 hours of are we there yet...

We will be in WDW the same time Jan 31 to Feb 10, how cool! We will be AKL Kidani Village.

Enjoy planning, can't wait to hear more....maybe our paths will meet at a park or restaurant one of the days.

We live just over the border from Port Huron Michigan in Canada.
Dismeet would be so cool... I will be reading your report to see what park and or restaurant you will be at to maybe try to organize one. I know you will be very busy, since it's your Disneymoon . But it would be cool to meet you and Your family.
Happy planning!

I think you will be on such a high from your wedding, leaving next day won't be too bad. good idea having yourself drive first

Your new car looks great




P.S. You might want to edit the pic with your license plate on it. Lot of crazies in the world, even on the dis

Oldie but goody, but new to Bob

So although we are going to a park on the day we arrive, I am choosing to believe that day 2 is the first "real" park day I call it Disney logic.... I'm sure you all have your own form of Disney logic as well!

Today is full of NEW! To Bob, AND one for all of us!

The first new is one for Bob!

Breakfast at Chef Mickeys! Sadly, Jophia will not be joining for this one either We did not eat here in 2011, as we didn't love it in 2009, but since we skipped last trip, I figured we'd try it again on this one, and it lets Bob try a new place/experience! It really has been fun in the past, but long, and not so great food.... Hoping for an amazing experience!

Some CM of the past!

2008- Our first time


2009- our second time



After CM we will be going to Magic Kingdom! It is KILLLING me that we aren't going the first night!

No plans for this day, we never usually have a plan. I suppose I'll be checking out the new Fantasyland along with every other idiot lol! Maybe I'll be smarter than that and just hot up our must do's? I'll make that list later!

After having an awesome day, we will have a new first for ALL of us, including Jophia!

Be Our Guest!

No pics, but I was able to snag an ADR with NO issue, other than the 2 hours it took to get through on opening day



So that's our first day! I am SOOOOOO looking forward to hanging with Jophia, and experiencing my happy place at cooler temps! I'm thinking we will get much more done than in years past, and we've gotten a LOT done in that dang heat!


Next up, Day 3 and some favorites!
