Hey Christen! Congratulations to your nephew! I hope the dates work out with minimal interruptions for current plans. You have a great attitude about it thought if you need to do back to back long drives.

That YouTube video with the room at POR and the pocket door, are the bathrooms that big or was that a handicap accessible room? They really are quite nice.

Still thinking about the Starbucks thing??

Hope you are having a great weekend!!

I'm not sure if that room was standard or accessible… I guess I need to do some more research!!!

Thank you!!! I know! I've got a lot on the horizon for our trip! I'm so excited! I just wish my real life would slow down so I could focus on Disney for a minute!!!

Hope to have an update tonight or tomorrow!

Welcome back! Oh… I mean, it's GOOD to be back!

Okay, so packages have been released- YAY!!! Of course, that just makes the decisions harder! My DH and I haven't decided on a resort quite yet… But when I sent him the quote from our TA (The fantastic Jenn!) his first response was "Well, let's book POR." REALLY?? Well, I haven't decided for sure, but it looks like we may be over there for this trip, which is REALLY exciting for me!

Now, I have been in my homestate dealing with some family issues on my side and we got to see my DH's family. Without going into the details, there was a bit of a fight over something REALLY silly. We try hard to keep boundaries in place, but apparently this one boundary is just something that my in-laws cannot respect. So, as of right NOW, they aren't going to be coming with us on our trip. Perhaps it is all for the best!

We talked to our nephew and his bride to be and apparently their spring break falls MUCH later than usual (and later than what I found online!!) so it looks like our trip will not be effected in anyway. But we still will have two back to back trips, since their wedding will now be at the end of March. Oh well. We will make it work! I gave the bride-to-be a lot of helpful advice about planning and such. Of course, this is her big day, so I was careful to not step on any toes!! I just wanted to make sure her day runs smoothly.

Oh and my BFF SBPrincess (I think that's her name on here) won't be able to join us on our trip. Her husband will be doing a dual enrollment and the two colleges he will be attending have different spring break dates! Can you believe that?! Jerks!

Okay, so that's my update for now. Trust me- we have to get the ball rolling on some ACTUALLY planning soon!!

I am wanting to make our reservations too but just not 100% on our plans. Something about making that reservation makes the wait to go back a tad
better.

Thanks! I'm tired of the crazy! Good thing you seem to have such a good relationship with your mama and your new extended family!

I'm going to do a quick "real life" update with some pictures from our trip home!

First we got to see our bestest friends Shelley and Brian! The girls were SO happy to see Uncle Brian. (Although, somehow we missed getting any pictures with Shelley! )


We also saw my grandfather, who is the girls' great grandfather. He has lung cancer and Alzheimer's. I am the POA for PawPaw, so I have to go and visit him quite often!


While we were in the South, we got to go to Cow Appreciation day at CFA!! YUM!


And we went swimming with some friends!

Your girls are too cute. It is so nice for them to see their Great Grandpa. Sorry to hear about his illnesses.

Thank you! It's hard on us because we are so far away, but we make it work as much as possible. The good thing is, when he saw he girls, he instantly lit up and was so happy!
