Like I said, BPDE.
Cheryl, that is just too funny. I have a feeling that bag sold in one of D~'s private auctions for BIG money. Donald probably bought it so he could finally have a bag of D~ since she always has such great Donald bags.

Glad you had a nice trip with your son, it was great that he could join you. I can't believe you found your sunglasses. I am surprised they are able to retrieve those items so quickly, I figured they would only clean out that area every so often.


D~ Love the pictures from 1900 PF, What a great last minute addition to your plans. It is nice to go somewhere new. I think you made a great choice but I didn't realize the menu was so varied. It has been four years since we ate there and the buffet was the same standards as some of the other choices in WDW (thus part of the reason we didn't go back). The girls looked like they were having fun, two sets of sisters

Happy to see Donald out and meeting the folks at Tusker house. I can't believe that Lion was sitting out like that. Suzi must have told him to wave to you guys.

Good luck sorting out your schedule for your bag sewing. I know there are a bunch of happy folks who got a spot on your list and probably some sad folks that wish they had faster internet.

Strange that your "size" is not adjusting to your efforts to work out and eat better. I have no advice but I wanted to say keep it up. Hopefully the Zumba will kick up your metabolism and you will need all new clothes next spring.

I can't believe how close our trip is getting. I have been busy sewing or at least making some shirts. I am thinking of you today as I just finished a Donald shirt for my dad. I will try to put together a little post about our plans for our trip. I really hope I get to have a few Dismeets while we are there.

That Tusker House breakfast looks yummy. Can't wait for our breakfast...five weeks from yesterday, we'll be there. We have late breakfast reservations, so I think we get both breakfast and lunch.

Sorta wish Minnie was at the breakfast. I'm about to finish up a Minnie purse for DGD...will post when it's completed. Maybe today, but no later than this weekend. Gotta clean house. The in-laws are coming this weekend..

Hi D~! That's awesome that your calendar is full for a good long while making your awesome bags. You will be putting a smile on a lot of faces!

I love the Krispy Kreme donuts at TH...that and the Mickey waffles, and sheesh, there are so many choices that are awesome. There's certainly not a shortage of options there.

That baby giraffe is adorable. It looks like he/she is holding a pose just for you.

Have a great day!

Mmmmmm...you're making me hungry! Tusker House is one of my absolute favorite meals in all of Disney. I should clarify...Tusker House Breakfast is Nom Nom Nommylicious. I love their juice and some of the other stuff on the buffet is just awesome! I'm actually a little ashamed that I don't know what those items are. The picture of the 3 of you with Donald is so cute...and Donald is so short!

I also wanted to say here, that I am SOOOOO excited to have a place on your custom order list for next year!!! I know that whatever you come up with will be amazing...as always!

1900 Park Fare looks great. It is on my list for next time. Well...maybe not NEXT time because it might just be Bradey and I. Maybe a girls trip whenever that happens

Oh my that baby giraffe was just absolutely adorable....I wanted the jeep to just stop right there and stay all day...even with Kung Foo Betty beside me. I loved that little thing!

That "special" SerendipiD! bag was HILARIOUS!!!

Speaking of SerendipiD~ bags...the girls and I were perusing your pictures on FB a few nights ago. My girls want bags now! Charity already knows EXACTLY what she wants, and as far as I know...you haven't made this theme yet. I am glad you are booked up for the next year...that gives THEM a year to save! The problem is that they are also saving money for the many cruise souveniers they have requested. Those girls need to get JOBS!

I absolutely Alli's outfit/dress at TH!!!! That is just the cutest!

Whew, finally all caught up after being away for the weekend.

First of all, the BPDE.... I think if I had been drinking something when I saw that, my keyboard would have been ruined!!

Sorry you had just an ok breakfast at O'hana. But the picture is cute and all of you look adorable. I especially loved V's dress.

Ok, what is with Gaston's chest? Looks like they tried to give him big pecks but they look a little more like Man B@@bs to me.

I think my favorite of that PP batch is the one with Goofy covering up the girls faces. I love when the characters play around like that!

The Fairy Godmother bag is awesome as usual.

So, Jim and I are going to check out DQ in a few weeks. I was starting to get a little worried by your experience until you described it as an "80's arcade". Jim is going to be in heaven! He's probably going to think he died and went back to high school.

Don't you just love all of the cute baby stuff at Disney? I'm kind of bummed because there are no babies right now in my family to buy for. Of course my one Cousin just got married, I guess I could do some purchasing for the furture.

1900 Park Fare looks like a lot of fun! The pictures with the Step Sisters are hilarous.

If you didn't get the earrings you wanted, you may want to check out the version made by Arribas Brothers. Here's a link:

Arribas Brothers Mickey Earrings

I have that pair and they have held up extremely well.

Yeah for Donald finally being at TH for you! The food looks really good there and I think I would book it in a second if Pluto was one of the characters.

D, forgive me...I got a little behind.

Hmm....I wonder if they changed the menu at 1900 Park Faire as it never used to be Asian themed from the reviews I've read.

I love the pictures with the Evil Stepsisters...very cute.

I enjoyed visiting GF at Christmas last year...very beautiful. I will never get Mark to stay there (I was lucky to get him through the doors to see the Christmas decorations).

And Tusker House...yum, yum, yum. And hooray for Donald being there.

More great character pictures.

And what a great picture you got of the baby giraffe.

I'm thinking of making a movie night once Jeff and Jeremy leave. They normally are good for that! Hope your day went fast!

Ahh love the baby giraffe! So cute! Glad it was another enjoyable breakfast and that Donald was out for the picture.

Glad Donald was there to give you some lovin' this time! Great photos of the animals. We got a lot of rear ends last trip! They seem to do it on purpose!
I am very happy that we were able to add 1900 PF to our ADRs, I tend to stay away from resort meals, because they are so hard to work into park days - which leaves our days off... I need to remedy that somehow...

We have much better luck with the animals if we go first thing in the morning.

I am very fortunate, I know that. Sometimes it's very stressful for me - sometimes the hours I have to keep to keep up with my schedule are quite grueling, and it's not always easy when the family is having fun and I have to work. But that being said - I love what I do, and I am so lucky that our financial situation allows me to do this (almost) full-time - that could always change, but for now, I am enjoying it. It's the wonderful comments and the friends I have made on The Dis who spur me on every day and keep me going - I wouldn't be able to continue on with out all the constant cheering I get from all of you.

Tell me about it... Yesterday, we had an "Iron Chef" contest at work - the theme was apples... So, it was all thes ahhhh-mazing desserts... In another life time - I would have taken a full piece of everything to "try"... Yesterday, I took a small bite sized piece of everything to try - and I stuck to the one bite... Well - except for the apple salsa... And for added measure - Victoria and I went for a walk last night. I am trying really hard to focus more on my progress in fitness and how I feel, rather than my progress in how I look - but I really would like to see some visible differences soon. LOL

I also wanted to say, that I went to the Disbou thread and looked at all of your amazing items - they turned out fantastic!!! You are such an amazing seamstress Lois! I had the tab open and I had a bunch of replies all written out - and then one of the girls closed the tab on me - I was not happy. So, I don't want you to think I didn't go look...

They were - however, most of the great ones are on Alli's camera - if she ever comes back to the Dis - maybe she will post them?

It's a great breakfast - and we LOVE doing it before the park opens. Usually we get there a little bit earlier and we can take our time walking back to TH - this time we had to book it though, because we were running later than I like to. But I encourage you to try it - the food is great, and there is sooo much more there than what was on our plates.

As the we headed towards the safari with the swarm of people we heard a guy on his phone saying "you want me to meat you at the safari?! well just look for me among the 100,000 people headed your way" That pretty much summed it up. And we were there on a "low crowd" day
Yes, we had reservations for 8:05 that morning. And we were there promptly at 8:05. We finished up eating just as the park opened, so we went straight to the safari. If you look at a map, TH and the safari are very close to eachother, so I believe we were ahead of the crowds from rope drop. It worked out really well - and I think this will be our game plan every morning that we do TH before the park opens.

I know... I think it's my age - they say it gets harder to lose the older you get, and it's never been easy for me to lose - as I was born with the slowest metabolism ever. I just keep telling myself to continue on, and the results will show eventually - I hope. I am sure they will "woosh" one day and all of a sudden all of my work will show... After all - I am really working myself up in the weights, and I am working out at a higher level than I ever have - so I feel more fit and strong, but well... You know...

I love the mealie pap... Mmmm... I only discovered it this trip, because Kathy mentioned it once in her TR - so I thought I would try it, and it's delicious. Also, that darned banana bread - bread pudding... TDF! Although, I think Disney does more variations of bread pudding than any one on this planet - it gets a little sickening after a while.

I have that pair and they have held up extremely well.
Oooh - I do LOVE those! I saw them online when I got home, but I was unsure of the quality. I think I may have to add them to my next order. Thanks so much for letting me know that - as I wanted something simple that I could wear every day.

I was so happy too! Yah - it would be nice if Pluto was there...

I haven't gone to read the menus for this meal yet... but I could swear it was Asian themed? Egg rolls... Potstickers... Sesame Chicken... Lo Mein... I am pretty sure that's Asian? LOL

More great character pictures.

Yes, that is one of our favorites!

I know - it was adorable! And I was so relieved to see Donald there when we came around the corner.

Thanks! Nah - Donald never really cares about my bags - I don't know why I continue trying? LOL I need to find a character that appreciates my efforts.

************************************************** ********

Yesterday was a really good day at Target. I was super busy and my day went fast - just the way I like it.

This morning - I am quite busy...

I have home made caramel rolls rising in the kitchen... I need to bake them shortly.

I plan to work on my custom order today, but when I break for lunch - I am done for a few days...

This is my big weekend with all my fun co-workers from Target - who also happen to be my Zumba buddies too. Every year, we rent a suite/lodge in Warrens, WI for their huge craft fair called "Cranfest"... My coworkers and I have a blast... This year, we rented a suite at the resort with the water park - so it should be lots of fun... There are 6 of us going this time. Here's my recap post of last year's adventures - for anyone who cares to read about it. LOL ----------> Cranfest 2012

Anyways... We are all excited to be going. Josh and the girls will be home with MM all weekend.

Since I will be "internet-less" - I hope you all have a great weekend! And I will 'see' you all when I get back on Saturday.

Thoughts and prayers going out to all in need.

Day 8 Part B

We had just finished Kiliminjaro Safaris, and what does every person in AK do? Head to EE for FPs...

We had to stop on the way for a few Photopass photos...








The girls and I rode EE countless times as single riders while we waiting for our FP time to come back around - and we have a ride photo for every one of them - however - I am not going to post all of those.

We also double dipped here - the one time we did this, where did didn't give the extra FPs away - we actually used them.




From here, we headed to Rafiki's Planet Watch, because Victoria wanted Rafikit's autograph for her pillowcase... We stopped on the way for more PP photos...




We finally boarded the train, and headed for RPW...




And Victoria was able to get her autograph from Rafiki!




Then we took a walk on our favorite walking path - under the TOL - which really sucks, now that they have that stupid netting up everywhere... Sigh. All of the pictures of that are on Alli's camera... Sorry.

But we were on a mission! There were a few other "must-dos" that we MUST DO in AK on our last AK day... I am sure you all can guess what they are?
