June 24 - 27th: The calm before the storm

I posted on Twitter on Wednesday:
HOW THE CRAP IS IT ONLY WEDNESDAY?! CAN'T IT AT LEAST BE FRIDAY ALREADY?!
(btw, I will be posting tweets from moi throughout the TR is that font)

Seriously, this week DRRRRRRAGGGGGED. I was in camp all week and it wasn’t like I was bored. I just REALLY wanted the week to be over and done with. I COULDN’T WAIT FOR DISNEY. And the DISmeet. BUT MOSTLY DISNEY CAUSE LET’S BE REAL NOW. I kept counting down the days and it seemed like no time had passed. Y U DO THIS TO MOI DISNEY.

Our week was pretty much boring. Except when Mum almost had a heart attack at work because her name wasn’t on the list of “approved” people for the package she took. So basically she almost died. Everything is fine though. She got two emails saying that they got her letter and stuff and I guess they forgot her name or something...??? And I guess they didn’t know when she faxed the papers in? Who knows. BUT EVERYTHING IS COOL GUYS. She got approved so it’s official!!!!!

I swear to God we spent most of our week at the dump. No lie. They are only open on Saturdays and Tuesdays and between those two days, we went there 8 times. And our car was PACKED full with crap we were getting rid of. Basically, we are hoarders.

And we had PILES of stuff in our basement and we had to hire some people to get rid of all of it. They came Wednesday night and they did a great job.

Like I said. HOARDERS.

On Thursday, I took the day off from camp and Mum didn’t go to work because we had a ton of stuff to do and our realtor was coming. So we cleaned the house and I took my Disney pins out from the lots I got on ebay. I took 13 (mum’s lucky number) and put some on my lanyard and then some in a little pouch that has vintage cameras all over it that I got in Washington D.C. Plus I got my Snow White notebook all ready and put it in my backpack. Priorities, dudes. So much more important than a clean house so we don’t look like pigs when the realtor takes pictures. Just sayin’.

TRADERS!


And how awesome is my Snow White notebook?! I’m in love with it.




After we finished up cleaning the house, we got ready and waited for the realtor to come.

He came, took some pictures, and Mum filled out some paperwork. And our house will go up tomorrow so fingers crossed!!!

While Mum was talking to our realtor, I was busy taking selfies with our cats. Cause I am a freak.

Moi and Figaro.


With Meeko!


You’re welcome. I’m sure y’all wanted to see those. I mean, I could include all 20 or so selfies I took with them, but I’m sure you guys are all set. For now. MUAHAHHAHA. And plus I look awful with no makeup on so there’s that.

Anyways…

After our realtor left, we headed out, went to the post office and the bank, got dinner, and then had a mini shopping spree at Hot Topic. It’s not moi’s fault that they have Disney tank tops and leggings. So I got the Peter Pan tank top and the Kiss the Girl leggings with Ariel and Eric. Perfection, if you ask moi. It’s not like I needed more Disney clothes but they were there. And I wanted them. So yeah. And plus they had a sign with upcoming Disney designs and the Aristocats were included on there, which is like awesome. If they have a tank top of Marie, I will die and become five again.

We also went to Best Buy and got a new GPS cause our old one just died.

Then we headed home and chillaxed.

GUYS TOMORROW IS FRIDAY!!!!

So jealous you got the Pan tank top. My HT didn't have my size. I'm going to a diff mall tomorrow and I hope they have that one and Mike tank.

I never understand why times go by SO slow when you're waiting for the trip and then once you're there, it zooms right on by. No fair!

Have a great trip!! Looking forward to live tweets.

I know! It is ridiculous. Like, you wait forever for a trip and then it is done before you know it.
Thank you! And what is your Twitter name?

June 28th: The start of the NE DISmeet!

On Friday, I went to camp and we had a game show and I crushed all of those counselors and other children with the Disney questions. And when I say crushed them, I was the only one who knew where Its a small world originated. Which is a stupid question to ask, cause come on now. What child would know that?! One of the counselors beat me and said the Chicago World’s Fair. Yeah, I don’t think so. Moi being the walking Disney history book and all, got that question right and had the most points. WHAT NOW.

Anyways…

After camp, I had my guitar lesson and then we headed to the DISmeet! I was so excited. So was Mum. But mostly moi.

And I was one of the official photographers for the event, and for the whole(ish) weekend. So I took A TON of pictures. I won’t bore you with them though so I will only post the limit of 25 and that’s that.

Of course, we missed the street the event was on so we had to take a u-turn but we made it there in no time. We parked like 500 miles away from the building and then we had to get everything out of the car because we were donating jewelry and some bags for door prizes and silent auctions.

Once we got everything out of the car, we headed inside.

On the door, they had a big green eye, and for some reason, that picture won’t upload. I hate Imageshack sometimes.

We headed straight for the registration table and got our lanyards and other stuff.

The room was decorated SO well.




It was all Monsters University themed and it was just so cute. MOI LOVED IT.






We walked around for a minute and checked everything out. Then we saw Kaelea and Kevin, who you might remember from the NJ DISmeet back in April. We sat down and talked to them for a few.



My awesome nametag.


We got up and checked out the door prizes and the silent auction stuff and OMG there were some AMAZING silent auction items, including a walking/photo tour at AK with Dustin. I would die for two reasons: 1. Animal Kingdom, duh, and 2. Um… let’s just say it doesn’t have to do with AK. Or photography. Or walking… MOVING ON.

One of the silent auction items was this amazing chair that was painted at a middle school. We would have bid for it but we are kinda, um, MOVING TO FLORIDA, and don’t need more stuff.


They had some AWESOME door prizes too including MGM MGM MGM. LOVE LOVE LOVE.


We sat back down at our table for a while and chatted with Kevin and Kaelea and our other tablemates, Matt and his mom, who just went on the Backstage Magic ABD, so we talked about that. And the whole Grand California issue they had. If you have not heard about that, basically, the water just stopped for HOURS. At a deluxe. Yeah… um Disneyland Hotel all da way.

We also chatted with Kathy for a while and gave her the big news and she was so happy for us!

During all of this, we played DIS bingo and since we were one of the first 10 people to fill up their whole card, we got prizes! They had lithographs and bags. AWESOME SAUCE.

I went around and took some pictures for a while and got my exercise for the week. True fact.





Pretty soon, it was dinnertime and there was a big rumbly in my tummbly. SO MOI NEEDED FOOD. LIKE I ALWAYS DO.

This was my plate o’ food. Aka YUMMO.


After we finished up dinner, we burned off the calories by checking out more silent auction stuff they put out, including THIS. TWINNNNNN.


AND HOW CUTE IS THIS. DYING.


TWIN.


Then we noticed dessert and there was a MU cake that was ADORABLE. I was trying to take a picture of it with my flash on and Teresa was standing right next to moi. My camera flash went off and she was so scared, that it was funny. She was like “I saw this light and didn’t know what it was!” I felt so bad!

Ok, maybe it doesn’t sound as funny now. BE THAT WAY.

We put more calories back on. And I had cake after.


After we FINALLY finished eating, we started trivia and our table was the Tasty Kakers cause we had the winner and I think the second place champions of the Tasty Kake (yes, kake) eating contest. WINNING.

All of the teams.


And dudes and dudettes, I swear to God I have never laughed so hard in my life during trivia. Mum was practically crying. Thank you Matt, for The Big Dump. And that is all I will say about that…

We came in second place so BOO YA! We got prizes which were the same from the bingo but we got different bags and lithographs.

And that was pretty much it for Friday night’s events. We drove home after it ended and got home at about 11. We had to get up early on Saturday CAUSE OF REASONS.

***

And just to let y'all know, I will not be posting the second half of the DISmeet as we have a lot to do to get ready for FLORIDA! And plus I have to try to get some rest since we have to be up bright and early (won't happen). I will see you wonderful people when we get back!!!!!

I would legitimately go and rip those Mike wall decorations off the wall and put them in my bag. No. Freaking. Lie.
Even if it means stalking it at the end of the night they would HAVE TO go home with me because LOOK AT MIKE. All the MU decorations. I can't. That little flag UGH

Is this Sofia backpack in your possession? Because it should be. Cuz then in January we can be princess backpack twins


STITCH + ICE CREAM

So here I was thinking to myself ..... what is different about Meg ?? She looks different, but I can't put my finger on it ...

And then I realized - you got your braces off !! They might have been off for a while and I never noticed because I'm so observant and all.

I hope you have a great trip !! Can't wait to see your photos !!

I'm late buy I'm in. Ohhh moving to Orlando SCORE! What a great mom to move for ya. Just think Fl. residents passes that you can make payments on. FYI for your mom, this from a friend who did the same thing, registering(?) your car there is $$$. Can't wait on reading more about the trip and the move. Good luck on selling the house and have fun getting ready. Time to do a countdown chain.

I wanted to. Badly. The DISmeet police would be after moi though.

Even if it means stalking it at the end of the night they would HAVE TO go home with me because LOOK AT MIKE. All the MU decorations. I can't. That little flag UGH

That little flag that we will be using in January?!

No it isn’t. IDK WHY.

STITCH + ICE CREAM

Knew you would love it.

And what is this delicious red velvet looking type thing?!?
It was like a cake roll or something, idk.

We did! Oh yeah there will be photos. In three days I took 1500. #DSLRproblems
