Lots going on around here these days. We agreed we really would like to work it out so we could go to WDW this year.
Dh came home yesterday and said he had asked for and was approved for the vacation days.
I changed a few things around, and started working on a plan. I wanted to figure it out so furlough or not, it would be possible.
I called CRO today, and the plan is: 2 nights WL, 5 nights YC. I've paid about 1/2 the total at this point, so I think it should work out!!

Hi Peeps!!

Deena, Hiii!!! Oh with the week Ive had several slushies would be the perfect remedy!! When you get a chance to get your pix off you can post them here so we can all drool.

Wookie: Its hard to accept when our kids get older and seeing the signs of it...t was hard for me to accept my DS with a beard& detested it & but it grew on me. When I mentioned I didnt like it he came back with mom you arent exactly the type of women Im trying to appeal to And for your excitement! I know you all love Comic Con (we dont know too much about it but as we are big fans of the Big Bang Theory and seen them intereviewed there).

Dani, you know l love your idea of your mommy and me trip&

Koh, as someone who has never had a dole whip, one with spiced rum sounds even more decadent&

Jen, you are not boring! You are making plans to surprise the girls again & bet you are making special T-shirts again too& funny, I just watched the video of your last trip (going thru PMs)& loved it. Every time you mentioned AG, I think about Sam and how much she loved first her bitty baby and then her AG dolls&its brings back so many memories!

Miss, our young Miss M will be happy no matter what resort you are at& you and DH will see to it that it is special.

Ginny, So happy the trip is coming together for you ... great split with WL and YC.

Waving to everyone else
Kids have radar like that, we all understand that... Its so wonderful to have you back and hear that life is a little less stressful...great to hear DS is okay. Love the fact you are planning this surprise for your DH& will the folks you are working with also have a photographer to capture it?? How romantic..

DH can make a snack run...there will be no more changing on this trip... Sarah had a hand in this one ... 'nuff said.

Sooo Pas, will you be changing the title of your PTR??

I'm now back safe and sound from my Dis DL Diva trip! We really had a wonderful time .... so many lovely ladies.

The Sunday before the trip DD was playing softball and managed to break her finger. After a trip to urgent care and a large splint she was referred to an Ortho surgeon. The tip of the finger seems to be just hanging there. He gave her a new little plastic splint which she has to wear for the next 6 weeks. Then he'll take another look to see if it has healed .... if it has she'll only need to wear the splint at night for another 6 weeks .... if not surgery, pins to hold it in place. Think good thoughts everyone!

So all the above explains why we didn't do all the meals and activities on the Diva trip. We both had a lot of fun and plan to do it again next year. I had signed up for the Scavenger Hunt but DD hadn't since she wasn't going to be there that day but due to her injury she arrived one day earlier. Some of the wonderful Divas invited her to spend the time with them while I did the hunt. My team came in 4th place ... just one spot out of winning a prize.

The Redneck themed Meet n Greet party was a great time to meet everyone. Some great outfits and lots of laughs. My outfit was just jeans and a plaid shirt so no prize for me.

We did several of the TS meals ... I think my favorite was Big Thunder BBQ. I did the dinner at Storytellers Cafe the first night before DD was there. It was a little hard walking into dinner with 24 ladies who you've never met ... I am shy .... but everyone was very friendly.

There were 60+ Divas on the trip but not everyone attended each event. I loved how you got to pick and choose what you wanted to do so you all weren't stuck at the hip to the whole group.

We've already started planning for next year .... Feb 26th thru Mar 2nd!

Thanks Christine for posting the picture of my hunt team!!!

Interesting fact about the Divas .... the first trip was to WDW. Beth, our fearless leader was living in MI. She posted her idea on the Dis for a ladies only trip to WDW ... there were about 40 ladies that year. She then moved to Arizona and started the trips to DL.

I really want to join you on one! Maybe I can talk DH into letting JUST me do it next year-- it's not a long trip, and I think if it was just me, I could keep costs manageable. 26 Feb to March 2-- that's only 5 days! A prefect small getaway, and I sure could use some girl time, and I'd love to see what's happened to DL since 1990 never know, it might be something I can swing, we shall see!

Ok, once again I'm way behind, but wanted to comment on the d ad b bags. I always looked at them and said no, but I did break down in DL a couple of years ago and purchased the vintage wristlet

Oh Dani! I hope you can make this work, I bet it would be a wonderful trip for you and your little Lily.

I went to Flower and Garden today!!! What a treat!! I'm totally loving the new booths in the World Showcase!! The new slushie in France was amazing, I loved the potato pancake over by Germany, and China had the most amazing candied strawberries!! We tried some other stuff, but I need to get my camera out to see what everything was. The slushies (yes multiple) fogged my memory

Not much else is new here. Keeping busy and playing in the parks! I hope everyone is doing well!!
Deena: Thanks for your super mini F&G report! It sound great food wise!!

How did I miss that this is another surprise trip? How cool! I wonder if they make I'm going to Disney World shirts that would fit the American Girls :
IHeart: Ok, I am glad I am not the only one who has a DH that can be reduced to tears! And thanks...you have given me an idea to ponder with that American Girl Disney shirt thing!!

Aw thanks Janet about the video, you are sweet to remember it. When I feel down I will watch it. I know I do talk about these dolls too much but I am amazed that they love them even more than I thought they would.


And I concurr on the texting...what did we ever do without it?
Janet: I don't text yet...DH wants me to get an Iphone, but I keep holding out. Scared I will become an addict!!

Why don't you start following this year's thread. Hop on and introduce yourself ... they will welcome you and make you feel wanted. Right now the discussion is about t shirts for next year ... I personally don't care what color shirt is picked so I'm fine with whatever color they decide on. Also there is some talk about where to eat .... again I'm open to anything.
