We went to see the balloons get filled last year. It is amazing to see just how big they really are but honestly not worth the crowds for me.

Plus it means I can plan my 2013 Disney trips around an academic calendar instead of randomly making reservations when I want to go and seeing if work can work with it. It was killing me as a compulsive planner to be unsure of whether the plans would be viable or would have to move/be made last minute.
(Thinking w the dvc aps being such a cheap upgrade I might even be able to talk dh into a quick may trip for star wars or garden festival after the end of spring semester ...)

Speaking of last minute plans hope we hear from val soon now that tltorrez is settled!
I'm glad you found stable employment! I know you wanted to come back stateside but that will happen when it's meant to be.

Morning all!!! Hope everyone is happy and healthy!

I'm now at 18 days. I didn't get anything done last night as it was our straightening for the cleaning lady night. It should be a quiet day at work, which means I'll be trying to not tweak our ADRs.

Maybe I'll take my unofficial guide with me.

Happy Birthday Bronwyn!!!

So it is really hard to get caught up in the last minute planning and excitement, when I dont know what is going on. It is looking more and more likely that either I will go solo on our original week or we will go the week before. I will try to comment more so you know I am alive. . Good news is tomorrow I am shopping with DB and then we have Thanksgiving, more shopping on Friday and then OSU vs Michigan on Saturday, so I will be busy the next few days.
I miss your daily presence and I hate that your DH's boss is not seeing the bigger picture.

I hope you can both go the week before, you could both really do with the break!

I'm beyond envious of all of you single digit dancers!!



Good morning everyone! Hope all is well and everyone is prepping for the big Turkey Day.

Today we have to go apply for our marriage license. One of the least fun and exciting parts of all of this, haha.

We have gone to NYC for our anniversary the last few years to see the Christmas decorations and whatnot. But last years crowds did me in. We got there around 9am and was ready to leave by 330pm

I'm not. This is how you know you've hit panic stage - the numbers are now decreasing way too quickly! (need an emoticon for running around in circles with your hair on fire!)

Happy Birthday Bronwyn!! I bet you guys are super excited for Saturday!!

Morning all!!! Last night we changed DS2's crib to a toddler bed (the front comes off), he slept GREAT in it, thank goodness! He was so excited to have it that way. We also got Brave from Redbox and watched that last. I liked it, the boys not much. The first bear part scared them worse than the other one, luckily it didn't cause any bad dreams.

Hope everyone is ready for thanksgiving and doesn't have trouble finding any last minute things. Luckily I only have to make dessert for Thursday, but on Saturday I'm doing a turkey breast, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce (others are doing potatoes and veggies). I went to Williams Sonoma to get the Apple Spice turkey brine to try for the first time on a recommendation. Hopefully it's good. Anyone else trying a new recipe for the big meal?

A couple friend of ours came up last year on a Saturday to go shopping at the holiday village in Bryant Park then we walked over to see the tree in Rockafeller Center.

I hate crowds, and the crowd by Saks across from the trees gave my friend Kate a HUGE panic attack. It was a huge mass of people. Completely shoulder to shoulder. It's exhausting.

If you get time to come up this year, there are a couple of holiday shopping villages. Union Square, Bryant Park and there's one in South Street Seaport. They are larger versions of the one next to City Hall in Philly.

Have you been to Macy's in Philly? (Old Wanamaker building?). If not go see the light show and the organist!

That would be a GREAT emoticon to have! I totally sympathize with your panic.
