Stop by when you can!!

That's great that Alli is wanting to try something new. I could never do it!!

I've loved all the pictures I've seen of FOTLK. We saw Nemo in 2009 but missed Lion King. Hopefully will make it next year!!

Ahhhh!! Of course I'd love the Lady bag!! The colors are very pretty together!! Looks great!!

Hello,

Hubby to Sewdisney here. She asked me to get on here to give you her apologies because she won't be visiting this site for at least several days - she had emergency surgery today. She said she is sure she would love your "creations" and she is sorry she won't be commenting on them any time soon. She says to keep up the fantastic work and she is looking forward to getting back on here.

Thank you.

D - Love the Lion King Show. Miss the days when Midori would get picked to participate in the kids dance around near the end of the show. To old now... Cant believe I am saying DD is to old for something. OMG, she going to be 14 in 9 days.

Tell Alli I said Good Job on having the guts to at least try new things. Whether she continues for the rest of her life or not, she is still a brave girl to at least try it.
I will do that - thank you.

Nini
Yah- the animals are cool - I just don't know where I am going to display them? The bird is quite heavy.

LOL - I seriously NEED new spoons for my set - we are down to 8 tea spoons. The sad part is - I bet $100 if I go back to our old house - I will find them buried in the yard... The girls used to love digging in the dirt with them.

Thanks! I was so excited to get one... Normally, that is something I would walk away from, because I couldn't make up my mind - so I am glad I was able to make a decision.

Glad you liked the photos. Bummer about the pretzel... but there are so many things to eat there that are delicious - I am sure you have a favorite.

Yah - I can see where you probably wouldn't enjoy them then... There are the sweet cream cheese pretzels in MK though at the Lunching Pad... Which are a bit better IMO.

Love the little "animals" I've seen them somewhere around here. I think at the balloon festival I went to in VT in June. Pretty cool.
Thanks!

Really? You've seen them elsewhere??? Cool!!! I know this guy is from WI, and he didn't appear to travel much - so I doubt it was him in VT. But maybe?

They have all sorts of fun stuff like this made by local artists and crafters. I haven't been in about 5 years though.
You should go check it out! I love going to craft fairs!

Thank you! I love doing the patterned exterior, if I can find a subtle print - like you said. I feel like if the prints are too much - then it takes away from the applique...

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

Well, I worked all day in my sewing room yesterday... Overall - it was a good day. I was able to get in an hour on one of my side projects too, so that was nice.

Then, I had to run to town to pick up the girls... Alli had an appointment. Afterwards, we went to Goodwill - Victoria wanted to get an outfit for "back to the 90's" for Homecoming week... So, we found her a pair of HIGH waisted Guess jeans - a tee shirt and a coordinating sweater... She plans to borrow Josh's fanny pack and my thick soled sandals. I was laughing hysterically while she was trying all of this on... She couldn't believe the zipper was about 18" long.

Josh met me in town and took the girls home.

I went to Target and hung out in Starbucks... I had a water and a Greek yogert to tide me over.

Then I had my Zumba class... I like it more and more each week - and each week I sweat more and more too... So maybe I am getting somethign out of it? It's so much fun to go with my coworkers though!

Then I came home and had leftover chili for dinner and straight to bed.

I will be working in my sewing room all day today.

I hope you each have a wonderful day!

Day 8 Part D

The girls and I napped in our room until 3:30, then we boarded a bus at 4pm... Oh yes... One more must-do to cram into the end of our trip...

Yup... Since we had WPF&M passes, we had to try out Typhoon Lagoon...



Photobomber...




I found a chair to put in at the edge of the Crush n' Gusher pool, while the girls went for a ride. I did not want to spend the $$ on a locker this time, as I was starting to run "short" on funds. In all reality - I had the funds, but I was hoping for a few more souvenirs for myself. So, I opted to put my feet in the water, and hold on to our bag myself.

This was my view:




The girls really liked this water coaster - but they did not like having to haul their tubes up themselves.

So, they headed to the wave pool. I decided to stay put... After about 30 minutes of waiting for them to come back, I made my way over to the wave pool to try to find them...

Um yah - not happenin'.

Do you see them?


How about this one?


Or this one? I did find a Photopass photographer though...


It's best if you take the advice of the boueys... Just sayin'... :whistle:


So, I took up residence on one of the rock benches near shore - which, as I found out very shortly - are almost consumed with water when the tide rolls in. So, as I sat there, through wave after wave - I decided that I kind of liked my spot, as the water up to my knees at times was very refreshing.

Eventually, Victoria spotted me... So I grabbed the Photopass photographer, and he was kind enough to snap a few photos. Now, normally - I would NOT post photos of myself in a swimsuit, but amazingly, these photos are actually quite good... And some of my favorite Photopass pictures from the trip.








After that - Victoria went back near Alli, and they played F.O.R.E.V.E.R. in the wave pool. They had no interest in doing anything else in TL - which was fine with me, after a hot morning/early afternoon in AK - I was more than happy just to sit there enjoying the water on my legs.




Right before we left, we were able to grab Alli for a Photopass picture too.


We left Typhoon Lagoon at 6:30 - the park closed at 7. We all decided that on the next trip - we must do a full day at TL! This was a FUN park and we were only able to do 2 things.

This time we were prepared for the crappy shared bus with DTD, and we rode all. the. way. around. to FQ.

The girls and I showered and changed, then we went down to the food court for dinner.

V had spaghetti and meatballs.
Alli and I split a large pepperoni pizza.


Both were very good.

Our good CM friend - Santos - entertained. We sill love Santos. He is our friend on FB now - so we keep in touch. Santos also went back and personally made the girls some beignets for dessert... While he was back there - V snuck back to take a picture...


Santos makes the BEST beignets! And he even left us a note on them!


For dessert - I had one of FQ's icecream cookie sandwiches... WOW! These things are MAMMOTH!!!! I only ate the top half. LOL


Then, it was almost time for another Dismeet... My sewing friend Tricia (whose Disname also happens to be Tricia) and her DH (Bill) came to FQ to meet with us. It was great meeting them, and fun to hear all about their trip. Not the best picture - but please just let me think it's the angle of the camera, and not the pizza/icecream cookie I'd just eatn.


We went back to our room and prepped for our final full WDW day... We were in bed by 10:30.

I'm so glad you are enjoying Zumba! Good for you for hanging in there, it's a good workout.

I am not sure if we are going for sure, this is the first year in "forever" that we aren't definitely going. Our school district cancelled the dates for the annual teachers conference and so the kids don't have those days off anymore.

I already said it on FB, but I LOVE the lady UPB. You are so good at picking patterns and colors! I am so excited.........

Whereabouts in Kentucky is it? Can't be too terribly far from my part of Kentucky (right across the river from Cincinnati). I love a good craft festival. Unfortunately, we already have plans for this weekend. Plus we have Disney in 3 1/2 weeks. However, maybe next year.

It's worth it. It's on the right hand side of the park. Good show. Dunno if we're going to have time to do it this trip. I think we'll only be at AK for about six hours this trip. DD and DGD are attending MNNSHP that night.

Great update, D. LOVE the photopass pictures...you all look great.

Even though we don't do water parks anymore (no elevators, remember?), we always loved Typhoon Lagoon more than Blizzard Beach.

Another DIS meet!
