Thank you for all the well-wishes for Allan! your support of us warms my heart...it's a work in progress, but he's determined so hoping for some good news out of this in the end....we will see what the fall and a summer of intense PT/OT brings!
I soooooo wish we could go to WDW right now! With DH off for the last almost 6 months, it would have been perfect to just get away, unfortunately the funds aren't there right now January 2015 is looking so far away! maybe I'll have to push it up to Oct/ Nov 2014 ...but really in the larger scheme of things, January is usually cheaper, and by the time Oct 2014 rolls around there would only be 3 months to wait, and longer to save .... so Jan/Feb might still be the timeframe.
I'll enjoy my weekend with Allan and keep saving for our big vacation a little at a time.

YEAH for PAS! so excited for her, and can't wait to hear about her trip.

Linda!! WOW 19 days at Disney World -- jealous!!! That's alot of resort hopping, good thing WDW makes it so easy! the longest I stayed at WDW was in Sept 2009 for 12 days...... Sept 1-12, 2009...... club level, Animal Kingdom Lodge. While it was a great trip, it was very hot, and probablly a day or two too long!
I find 9/10 days with travel just about perfect for everything I want to do.....but must include Universal in that time now too

All this talk about Mcgriddles have me wanting to try one, but every time I think of it, I balk at the amount of calories that must be in that thing! It sure sounds yummy though!

Have a happy Friday everyone!

You're right 19 days is a rather long time ..... but it isn't my longest trip .... that would be the time when I was there and just kept changing my return flight and of course POP always had a room for me. My family was sure that I was no longer on vacation .... that I'd just gotten a job and moved there!

DD and I plan to just take it easy and relax .... lots of resort pool time. She's had a hard couple of years therefore this mama has had a hard time!

Always thinking of you and Allan .... it might be a long slow process but I believe it will happen!

hey guys.... all this talk about Mickey D's had to look up the calories..

Overall calories not as bad (don't look at the fat or sodium content though)

SEC McGriddle 550 Calories
BEC McGriddle 460 Calories

Miss, told myself I wouldn't bug her.... so trying to keep to my word. And kids at this age just ignore you if they want...they wouldn't turn off the phone in case they get some REALLY important text (not Mom's )

Plus they gotta instagram, check FB, etc.

Yeah, let's us now how that worked out... and it's a friday... a double whammy for trolling the food/spirits aisles...

Then non MK area...
Sci-Fi - lunch or dinner
Coral Reef - lunch or dinner
Sounds good to me! Especially since you'll be staying so close, it'll be very convenient. After switching back to the Epcot area, I decided we should raincheck Artist Point/Cali Grill until we're up for MK again (and finally staying at CR, I know we'll be there at some point.)

My poor computer(s). I wind up having 10+ browser tabs open at once -- on both Firefox and Chrome. I'm surprised these things don't start spewing smoke.

Okay, we're SET! My trip to the store netted us the following snacks: two pounds of organic strawberries, a bag of kettle corn, fresh baked pretzel sticks and a block of cheddar. (I bought a bunch of golden beets and yellow squash but I think we can safely exclude those from the snacking. )

I shouldn't boast too much about walking in and out with nothing today... the hubbo stopped in and brought back 3 bottles yesterday evening.

melissa Your ADRs look good to me but then I always plan most of mine based on where we are staying except for our in the park ones.

GG

Your Trip plans look Great!

AS of now I am thinking more F&W is the way to go

Heather It has been brutal up here today we are suppose to reach 99 and with the humidity it will feel like 105 :faint. Good news is the heat wave is going to end by Sunday temps next week in the mid 80's

As you may remember my trip was suppose to be F&W but the "maybe" wedding plans canceled that. Well now it looks like the wedding might not happen until next Feb. And with my luck it'll probably be the weekend of the Dis DL Diva trip!

As for F&W I just love eating my way around the world!!!

This will be our first F&W trip as of now it is 2 lunches and one dinner of eating around the world. I hope we can fit all the booths that we want to try in.

Oh no I hope the dates are not during the Diva Trip.

Speaking about weddings, I go to FB and what do I read......my Ddil or do I say ex dil posted she remarried yesterday. Just 2 days shy of the 4 year anniversary of Jason's death. I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach. I knew she was living with this guy and haven't talked to her in a few months but geez Louise not the best way of finding out and It was the timing being so close to Jason's Angel day that really got me.
