It's pretty much a normal tutu, with strips of tulle, but there is satin ribbon sewn to the end of each strip of tulle. I like it because the ribbon weighs down the tulle some and helps it not to be so poofy. It took her quite a bit of time to make it, so if you ever happen to inquire about one, just know to start the process early!
Thats exactly what I don't like about regular tutus!!

I think it just depends on the person. Apparently they meant neither since they supposedly named it after a train line in New York. Still like to think they named it after a Star Trek or James Bond character than a subway line even if they say otherwise.

Heads up to those who are going to be in Q's main path. Be careful this thing packs quiet a wallop. Were not even in the bad area and the snow was ridiculous.

It took about one hour approximately (when I got out of my test it didn't seem to have been snowing that long judging by the random patch of not snowed on ground) for my car to get this much snow on it:

We're in a Princess Room too! I agree - just felt fitting for the event. Plus, I'm not sure my boyfriend would ever agree on a normal trip

Thanks! Yep, it's about 24 hours. Last year when we drove with the girls we were able to make it to Florence, SC the first day. We're hoping to make it a bit further, stay overnight and then get up early and drive the rest of the way tomorrow.

So, I'll be here all day with nothing to do but chat while hubby drives.

I'm also in a Royal room at POR. What time are you getting on the bus to go to the race? I'll be at the bus stop at 3.

I hope that everyone leaving today will have a safe trip down.

I hope all sicknesses and aches and pains have disappeared for everyone, and that we can all enjoy a healthy trip. Hoping that anyone in the storm's path doesn't have their travel plans hindered. I'm leaving home in about a half hour to make my way to the airport. I can't wait to get on the plane so I can take a nap; I stayed up way too late last night.

Safe travels, everyone! Hopefully, I'll be able to run into some of you along the way over the weekend. Have a great race, princesses!

Getting ready to get to the airport. Resisting the urge to wear the tiara now.

Safe travels everyone. Orlando here we come.

You all were a chatting group yesterday.
Many thanks to all for the get well wishes and pixie dust. I feel about 75% better today. I've already had a piece of toast and juice this morning.

DH covered for me yesterday and took care of himself, so today I need to finish his costume. He had to by, by himself, to the fabric store and pick up some trim to finish it.

Hope all the winter storms pass quickly and you all are able to get on your flights to Florida.

At the airport! Flights on time. Taking the taxi was the best decision I've made in a while. I-70 wasn't plowed at all and I had to watch him unfog the windows several times on the way there.

There are days like these where I would love to know where the money that should be going to the DOT is going.

The weekend's forecast is still "tentative" for Boston-- here's hoping Q is too exhausted by Sun to leave much snow at the airport!

I realizes that due to the slightly earlier start time and being in a earlier corral, we start almost 30mins earlier than last year! Last year we got on the bus at BC at 3:45 and barely made it to the corrals by the Elite start (due to the long slow walk). Do we think it will be better this year, or do I really need to back up our whole plan by 30 mins this year?
