As far as our Disney tripI think I tricked my DH into upgrading to the DlxDDP. Last night, well really this morning, we were laying down to bed at 1 AM. He said, "Happy Valentine's" and I said, "Happy Valentine's and thanks for the Valentine's Day present of upgrading to the DlxDDP." When he didn't say "no" I took that as him agreeing to what I said. WOO HOO!! Le Cellier

Thanks to the DSs really wanting SAB everything else is pretty much set in stone. We're booked 9/9-9/14 at the GV BC room.

I've actually wanted to stay there since I saw the Samantha Brown Hotels episode from the YC/BC. I just wish I could find it on line somewhere and watch it. I'm almost afraid I will love it, then I will be torn between two loves.

Me too!! You know what else would be cool? To post wedding pictures. Hmmm...I know my wedding album is the storage unit, but I bet the mil has some pics from the DH's senior prom and from our wedding.

So while looking for my prom and cake pictures, I found something totally Disney related......

Andrew's first trip to WDW!



Look at the Castle!



Now if that wasn't a blast from the past, I go back even further.....

My senior prom was the day before my 18th birthday, so my mom and my friends had this cake made and presented to me at the prom, I had no clue and was totally embarrased as the whole prom sang Happy Birthday to me

My cake did in fact have a Disney aspect to it, I used to collect the Dalmatian figurines, but as you can see I have a secret obsession....well not so secret most people know about it



Now I am not posting the posed pics taken because well, I don't care for either of the people I went to my proms with (one was the abusive bf, and one was my ex-h). But here is a picture of me before I left for my senior prom, birthday balloons and all, a smile would have been nice




And just for good measure....my senior photo, that was 20 YEARS AGO

I am loving your photos all. I don't do photobucket, so there will be no retro pics of me!

Love the pics Melissa!

These prom pics bring back a funny memory for me. My little brother's best friend's GF dumped him the day before prom. I had been out of HS for a few years already, but I told him I'd go with him so he wouldn't miss out. I wasn't shelling out big bux for this, so I hit the thrift store and found a really cute slinky black dress to wear. Only problem was that long and pastel was in that year. Since I was older, nobody knew me, and I was very obviously inappropriately dressed, by the end of the night the rumor mill had me as the hooker he had hired as his date.

Good times.

OMG, that is hilarious!!!! You are such a good person to do that for him, but that story is classic!!! My mom had a good one too....on of her older brothers married a woman with the same first name as her, so when she was in high school everyone was whispering and pointing at her saying that Judy Alterman was pregnant, well it was obviously my aunt and not her, but still a funny story.

oh my, that is too funny!! I guess you could take it as a compliment they thought you were so pretty someone would do anything, including pay, to have you by their side. For some odd reason, it makes me think of the movie "Can't Buy Me Love".

Thanks. I have a couple more from that trip. My mom thinks it was in 1981. That was the trip where we drove from Texas to Florida with three kids in a two door orange Datsun. When we got to a parking lot of I'm assuming the T&TC (from the way my mom describes it), her and my dad said we were just looking at Disney World from the parking lot. All three of us starting crying and saying things like, "But we don't want to look at it from a stupid parking lot. We want to go into Disney World." This continued from the car to the ticket counter, to the ferry, all the way into walking into the Magic Kingdom. My mom said that we did not stop until we saw the castle.

I have one from Christmas week 1984 where my dad was wearing a parka. I just remember being at MK and it being so cold and every line was an hour!

OMG!!! I'm gonna have to go to my dads house this weekend and find our first trip to Disney pics!!

We actually have video from our first visit (1985) which my dad took with his high tech (at the time) video camera! The thing was huge and still had reels of film. He had them transferred to DVD several years ago, but I love watching those videos....you could see way back when, I just "got" Disney.

Well, time to turn in...I spent the evening actually catching up on DVR from back in October!!!!

DH has a rare day off tomorrow...and you know what he's doing...he's having DD6 get a day off from Kindergarten and he's taking her shoe shopping!! Her favorite past time. He feels that he doesn't spend enough time with her (DD8 is a MAJOR daddy's girl), so he set aside the day for her...she is so excited!!!
