Congratulations on getting another cruise booked. We loved Galveston and think we need to give this some more time at some point in the future.

I need to join in on that TR to get ideas for ours! I think she forgot about the figure that she wanted to order, I'll check.

We've been looking for things out of Galveston too. We booked a dummy cruise before getting off of the trip so we'll be researching where to go for probably next year. However, DH wants to be on the Fantasy and i'm not sure if the Fantasy leaves out of Galveston.

But how awesome! I guess this means both you and Fran loved this past cruise!
It should be really nice, and not too far to go for us. I need to look into airfare and stuff. I had a great time. I think she liked it that she could rest in the room while I did things and she didn't feel like she was depriving me.

Congrats on the new cruise booking. Hope things are well with you.
And to boot, when I came home from the dentist today there was a 60lb package about 3 1/2 feet tall and another smaller package on the doorstep!

Things are better, I think they will continue to look up! (insert crossing fingers smiley here).

We are cruiseaholics, so while we don't have another planned, I spend my time reading cruise reports.

Love your bag!
Sorry that you don't have a cruise planned. I will try to keep the updates coming!

No it's not, but even closer is our trip to WDW. I was afraid that I might have to cancel yet another trip, but this morning, as we watched stuff about the Grand Opening of the new Fantasyland, she asked about when our dates were and told me to look into dinner at Be Our Guest.

This evening was formal night so we wanted to go to the show and had to get dressed up.

I’d heard a lot about the Golden Mickeys, but only enough to know that it was an Academy Awards themed show where they roll out the red carpet and interview guests as they approach.



I won’t give it away for anyone who hasn’t seen it, but it was a cute show. Definitely with the Disney touch.







Thankfully they don’t allow photography during the show, so you don’t have to watch all those pesky fruit loop screens in front of you in the theater. After the show we took a couple photos. This one with Mickey came out OK,



We took a couple other photos, these were the ones that we bought that came out pretty OK







[Continued in next post]

[Continued from Previous Post]

Then it was time for dinner









We both started off with the Caramelized Bay scallops served on a bed of leeks and sundried tomato risotto. I had the rest of my Sancerre from the previous night to accompany the first two courses.



We both had the Broccoli and Maytag Blue Cheese Soup mine was sans the Chopped Walnuts



Finally a good picture of the two of us!



Some shots of the room









Fran went with the Oven Roasted Tom Turkey Breast with Green Beans, Sweet Mashed Potatoes, Rosemary Stuffing, Giblet Gravy and Cranberry Relish.



I went with the Yachtsman Steakhouse Grilled NY Strip. So far this has been my least favorite entrée. There was nothing wrong with it, just nothing special. I prefer a Rib Eye Cut, or Skirt Steak, I find both more flavorful than the NY. But the potato was really good when smothered in sour cream and butter.



I ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir from Bogle to go with this course, and was able to bring that forward to the next night for dinner.

Then they brought the dessert menu





I went with the trio of Crème Brulee, The Golden Chocolate Award and Raspberry Cheesecake



We came home to our towel animals





I was too tired for a bath tonight, and just went to sleep.

I love your dress and the photos have come out really nice. Your photos of dinner have given me an idea. I normally have the steak on this menu, but I am not overly keen on potatoes. I think next time I will ask if I can have the risotto from your appetizer with the steak.

Fran looks great in the tux and you look so pretty in that dress. Sounds like things are settling back down to normal at home again; after the trip.

I love that the CMs kept having fun with the towel animals.

My heart sunk when you said the next trip might be canceled. I'm glad she seems interested.

Glad you got to a show. I really enjoyed all of them. Tritons looks so beautiful. You both look fantastic

Thanks! The risotto was pretty good, not as good as Palo, but it was still tasty. I think that would work!

Thank you very much. I always think she looks great in her tux, but then again I am biased! Not completely normal, but still better than a couple days ago.

My heart is still sunken, but I'm hoping that everything perks up a little before the trip.

I didn't see the D23 Magazine, what was on the cover? I'll have to take a look at it!

This is what was in the 60lb box



It goes on the back of this (which incidentally is arriving sometime today).

What an amazing car. When I still lived in Germany, I would steward at a classic car rally every year from when I was about 16. This was so much fun and I loved seeing all the beautiful cars.

It is the magazine with Wreck It Ralph cover and they have a whole spread about Destination D and the picture of our group at the Studios.
