Those handwarmers are adorable! I'll have to get some of those if we really go next NYE.

I meant to say, I'll be shocked if all of Fantasyland isn't open. We saw almost all of it in Oct except for BOG and there have been soft previews of that as well since then so I think you will be golden!

It would be wrong if you didn't buy Brave. Nice excuse to snap it up though!

I haven't seen Brave yet, but I've heard such good things about it!!! And YES I especially love that Merida has a mess of curly hair (to which I can completely relate!!)

I love Target...and COMPLETELY missed that Disney holiday section the last time we were there!!! Hmm...I'm thinking we may need to make a trip to Target soon...

I am stopping at Costco on the way home from work today and now I think I need to swing by Target as well. I love those socks. I have to get a pair!

And I want a pair of those slippers too.

We've not yet seen Brave, but I hope to rent it and see it Thanksgiving weekend.
The handwarmers are pretty darn cute... and they come in lots of characters/ and combos-like Mickey & Minnie...
& the Slipper socks are nice & toasty...

Brave is quite good... it just isn't the traditional princess love story... Merida's triplet brothers are absolutely adorable... and a little impish...

Can I go next NYE too?...

I am pretty much counting on it... but you know... until I actually see it... I'll be a teeny bit nervous...

It would be wrong if you didn't buy Brave. Nice excuse to snap it up though!
It's nice to have a rationale behind these purchases (not that I need one... but it's nice to be able to justify...

Yes I definitely think you need a trip to Target soon... the thing with them is that they go through merchandise quickly but then they're sure to get something new in that's good pretty quickly... I've found out that if I see something I want to snap it up as soon as I see it...

Yep you need them...sigh... you can pick up adult beverages at your Costco too... you don't have the archaic PA state store laws...

Hey Patricia!

Great finds at Target, getting that Christmas mojo going already! Brave looks like a very cool movie, love the tie-in with your DD and the pictures of you and her. LESS THAN TWO WEEKS TO GOOOO!!!!!!

And thank you to Jenn for that list - totally borrowing from that, thank you for saving me from building one from scratch

Hey Mike... I'm glad you all are on track for your trip...

Brave is awesome... I hope we get to see Merida at the park... last I heard she is doing a meet and greet...

As of today we are down to 11 days... we're heading to single digits...

11 Days till Disney Go Time... (and 2 days till single digits... )

....and 4 Days till Thanksgiving... I Thanksgiving...


Well I haven't exactly packed yet but I am starting to collect toiletries and whatnots...

more on the whatnots... it turns out our local drugstore (Walgreens... I'm not sure if they're national or just regional) has become a mini Dis holiday store...

so I picked up a couple more fun things to take...






And my favorites...These light up and "snow" flies about when you turn them on....







As a precursor to Thanksgiving, Eric and I went out for a little "pie" before seeing a movie last night...

We're both huge pie fans... both sweet and savory and with the cupcake craze... it's nice for a change to find a place dedicated to pie....

Magpie...










Smoked Gouda Butternut Squash... this was soooo good... there was squash and spinach and a creamy cheese sauce throughout.... and a little bit of crust... I started to eat and then took the photo... it was prettier before my fork got to it...




Eric's Chicken Pot Pie... also good... I just preferred mine....




and then what I was really waiting for...the sweet pie....




Eric had Carmel Apple...it was really good-flaky crust, well cooked apples...sweet but not too sweet...



but this... This was EPIC




Bourbon Butterscotch ... imagine creme brulee... but an American version in a pie crust.... It was amazing.... the filling was creamy and lush... and the crust was really flaky.... and there was awesome coffee to go with it...a Philadelphia home grown coffee company... La Colombe... really great stuff... This trumps Starbucks when I can get it...

So completely and happily full ...

Afterwords ... we went to see this



(Funny in the photo... the lit up clock face behind me shows up in the Photo...)


It was excellent...and educational and emotional... not light entertainment by any means but really worth seeing.

...Daniel Day Lewis did a great job of portaying a Lincoln who was a very, very good man but also a very human man... Sally Field kept Mary Todd Lincoln from becoming a caricature... Tommy Lee Jones...well the whole cast was just amazing... I have a need to see the Lincoln Memorial soon...


(There were also previews for the upcoming Hitchcock film starring Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock... It looks like it focuses on the making of Psycho... It looks like a must see...

Also has anyone seen the preview for Les Miserables with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway? Wow... another must see...

Best wishes to everyone with Thanksgiving Preparations /and or any traveling...

I'll update again when we get into single digits...

Walgreens does always have cute Disney merchandise! I always forget about checking there for little whatnots!

An entire restaurant devoted to pie??? Awesome. Your meal there looks so good!!

Wow - It never occured to me that Pa Costcos would not have liquor. That really STINKS! I love Costco's liquor store. They don't have an extensive selection, but what they do have is priced really well and they even have wine tasting on the weekends.

How did I miss this update yesterday????????????? I was off and on the DIS a bagillion times. Now I can't see your food porn pictures and I am SO disappointed.

Glad you enjoyed the movie! Sounds really good.

I noticed that Walgreen's had some really cute Disney Halloween merchandise. I haven't perused the Christmas stuff yet, but I guess I need to.

Okay, where is this Magpie place??? I have to make a vacation out of it just to go there! YUM!!!

Love the little light up snow blowy things....very cute and not park prices

There are SO many great movies out and coming soon that I want to see. Our nearest theater is an hour away and I never get to see them until they come out on DVD or pay per view. Lincoln looks good and Les Mis looks amazing! But anything with those two would be amazing

Almost single digits – Whoohoo! And yes, our Walgreens goes totally Disney at the holidays too so it must be national.

Loved the pie excursion, how very cool. DW would love the dessert pie you chose, she loves crème brûlée. Lincoln looks really good but we’ll probably wait to see it on blue ray. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. Hopkins as Hitchcock aye, that would be interesting.

Good luck with your Thanksgiving prep also! We just got news last night that DW's aunt is coming to town tomorrow and will be staying at our house while we're at WDW. It is a good thing but has caught us a bit off guard - lol

Ooohhh...I really want to see Brave! I've heard so many great things! I'll have to pick it up this weekend.

Target always has the cutest Disney things. I wish we lived closer to one....

But, we do have a Walgreens! I'll have to make a trip there tomorrow!

Yum! Those pies look delish!

Yay for almost being in single digits!!!
