He was 7th in line to pick and I was 8th and he just took him! Just like that! and he doesn't even LIKE the Saints!
I have 3 fantasy football teams.....but only one is for money. Dh doesn't even have one this year I was 3rd pick in the money league. It's a lot of fun!

Is it expensive? We just don't have a way to get a rental car back to the airport so we can't rent from there.
Apparently there's not that many drop fees in Florida, so you might want to check out renting at the airport and dropping off the car in the World.

I'm doing something similar to you, taking ME in, then picking up in DisneyWorld, and either doing two one-ways to Port Canaveral and back or possibly just renting for the whole week (starting in the middle of my trip), and parking at the port ... at the moment the latter seems cheaper so that's what I have pencilled in at the moment. I haven't been yet, but I've gathered that most of the major players are represented in DisneyWorld ... here's what I've discovered by stalking the transportation boards regarding rental car locations in Lake Buena Vista ... I might have gotten it from a sticky in the Transportation Board, can't remember.
  • Alamo at the Dolphin
  • Avis near DTD
  • Budget- Doubletree near DTD (M03)
  • Dollar - Wyndham Lake Buena Vista near DTD
  • Hertz - Shades of Green
  • and Enterprise will pick you up and take you to their Royal Plaza Hotel location which is near DTD.

Plus there's the Walt Disney World Car Care Center ... or another name that has a bunch of C's in it ... think I have the name wrong.

Unfortunately it does seem that some of the better rates are available at MCO rather than down in the World, so if you can snag those without paying any one-way fees, it might be to your benefit ... unfortunately for me renting the extra 5 days to pick up at the airport seems to erase any savings that might be had by renting @ MCO.

Yeah, I bought glass ones on sale a while back but I'm a little nervous about taking them in the suitcase and shuffling the tree for our split stay.

Wanted to share, I don't know if Big Lots is a nationwide chain or if they even have the same things store to store but our Big Lots near us has Disney princess dresses. I didn't look closely at the price, well, cause I'm sure my boys would t wear them, lol. But if you have one near you it might be worth checking out.

In other (non-disney) news DS6 seems to be getting a cold so we decided to not go to the pumpkin patch today. I have no idea when we'll go now since the weather is supposed o be cold and rainy tomorrow and every weekend this month is super busy (but at least it will help in my countdown to our trip).

In Disney news, Walmart is starting to put out their Christmas stuff and they have a lot of the window clings (both the regular ones and the thicker gel ones). I still have to figure out whether I'm going to decorate the window or not. DH seems to think its not worth it but I want to do it. Maybe just a few clings and a string of lights. lol

Good morning DisFriends!


Lazy day here- trying to find hardware to make a treasure chest look pirate like. I figured if my daughter is going to love princesses we need to balance it out with some pirates! I thought it would be a cute idea to hold her "jewels" (necklaces, bracelets, tiaras) Plus I got this cute Jack Sparrow pretend play set (hat, pirate rings, gold coins, sword....)

Pumpkin festival tomorrow and last day of staycation

Busy day today! Soccer games this morning, then the pumpkin patch afterwards. We are doing our Cinderella movie night tonight. I'm going to try my hand at pumpkin stuffed shells (but I have cheese ravioli as backup), white chocolate mice (strawberries), and I found these Ready-to-Bake Cinderella slipper cookies at our grocery store. Should be a fun day. It's our last (hopefully) hot day, as the temperatures drop to the 60's tomorrow!

I feel lost! I haven't been on the forum in what feels like forever (but is probably only 4-5 days), and I have so much to catch up on!

Hello! I was thinking about you the other day. How is the job going? And life in general?

What a rubbish game last night.

Braves played terrible but that Umpire was wrong to call an infield fly. I have never seen a situation like that at the Braves ever, you never see bad behaviour but the fans were frustrated. I was not a happy bunny last night.

Which pump is your DS on? I was on the Animas one originally, and now I'm on OmniPod. My pump warranty is about to expire, so I'm looking at pumps again in case I find one I want to switch to?

I think that's it.
Buckeye football tonight! I'll be leaving Cleveland to drive to Columbus in a couple hours. Plus...Columbus has a Disney store and Cleveland doesn't, so I might do a little shopping while I'm there!

I'm not very creative or crafty - I might just use plain envelopes and write "Thank You" on them. :/
