Right off the bus and already a dismeet Great group shot too. How nice of Emma to make you guys all bracelets. And custom colors too.

I think the one of the 3 of you in front of the castle (must have been taken after Casey's corner) is one of my favorites from you trip. Plus your awesome accessories are showcased.

Curious if you liked CP this time too...

Great photopass pics...just the three of you and also the group.

I love MK first thing in the morning...no crowds, it sparkles like you said and just makes me smile the biggest smile ever.

Uh oh...I'm a little nervous about your review. I did mine and ours was fabulous as always.

Wow - they had the fall decor up already? I'm so used to going in September/October that I expect it to be there. If we ever go at a different time of the year I'm going to wonder why MK looks off.

Yeah for busy days at work - slow ones for me mean extra paperwork/tediousness.

CP is where DH gets the most pictures of me. Not the best all the time, but the most.

I'm finally caught up just in time to fall behind again over the weekend!

Way too much to comment on over the week but I have enjoyed reading it all. I will say that the first thing that popped in my head when I saw your little metal bird was Zazu!

Hi D~! I have not abandoned your TR... crazy week and all but I'm all caught up!

Glad that you had a great Cranfest weekend and scored some very creative crafts with those metal objects. (Side note my MIL used to live in a small town outside Madison and I've been to Madison many times on business. We still have family in Sturgeon bay and Appleton.)

FOtLK and jalapeno cream cheese pretzels, now that's a great afternoon!

Your Lady & The Tramp bag is adorable. I love the colors and the interior fabric complements the outside so nicely. Loved the collar motif for the wallet.

Relaxing with your legs in the water at TL sounds like a great way to spend a hot afternoon. And a great spot for photos. You all took great photos for the photopass person. I kept telling the photopass guy when we were at BB to take close up shots of us, not far away full body shots as I don't want those!!! Argh!! I'll have to edit before I share!!

Ha ha!! V's 90's attire and hair... That was perfect. What? You mean that Mickey jacket is out of style?

We ate at CP for our last breakfast in the park as well. Looking forward to seeing how that went.

WHEW! I am only up to day 7 and that is without reading the remarks.

I can't believe all the dismeets you had! That's awesome. I was leary having my first, but look forward to more.

Love your BB day. We havn'te tried that yet. Maybe next trip.

I'm sorry we missed you all in DHS. It was so funny being behind you. Would never have known it without the headband.

Your friend Christy's dd looks just like her. So, cool she loved ToT How brave!

Some of those food dishes look really good. Especially the desserts.

Thanks! I didn't really like how the shirt I was wearing showed up in the photos... But it's much better on photopass than it is on my camera.

How many days before your trip Liz? I know it's coming rather soon.

Thank you! Well, my calendar is a labor of love - along with my mini-planner... I do both of them in Photoshop - there are about 100 layers in the calendar alone. Most of the pictures are borrowed with permission from Diser Dznefreek... It usually takes me about 1 week of playing with the calendar each time I take a trip, to get our new dates figured in there and all of our plans - but it's a lot of fun and a very handy tool to have - I reference it constantly during the planning stages, and I am usually making edits to it up to a few days before we leave. If you have any other questions, I'd be happy to help you out! I know may others here have been very successful making their own in whatever program they have - Word has been used successfully for sure, and I think there is another program too?

I totally agree - MK in the morning - there is nothing better! And starting off with CP before the park opens... I wish we could do it every day we are there.

Thanks! Emma did a great job on it - literally - I have not taken mine off since we've been home... I need to soon though - or I won't have it for our next trip.

Thanks! LOL Actually - they had JUST put out the fall decorations, because when we were there a few days prior - they weren't up... I was very happy to see it all done before we left, as we LOVE MK with the decorations up.

Yup! We were so happy about this, because when we had been here a few days prior, the decorations weren't up yet. We LOVE MK's fall decor - so we were elated to see this when we walked in that morning!

Oooh fun! We used to go to the MCM (Madison Children's Museum) annual benefit sale every year, when my girls still collected American Girl Dolls - we went last year, not sure if we will go next year or not? It's about a 4 hour drive from my house - but we always have fun!

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

Nothing exciting to report today...

I worked in my sewing room all day yesterday... I finished my custom order bag, and then I spent a few minutes working on my next SUPER SECRET PROJECT... Still so excited about it - it's turning out better than I had hoped!

This morning, I plan to finish the wallet for my custom order... Then I will go back to working on my SSP - if my teeny tiny fabric delivery comes today - I will wash it up quick and hopefully finish the project... I made Alli promise to take it out on a photoshoot. Not sure if that will happen this weekend or not though?

Once I am done with that - I plan to work on V's first custom for our next trip... I have a lot of it done already - so, it's possible I will be able to finish it this weekend - definately next weekend for sure.

I am looking foward to getting some of these half finished projects off my plate... My sewing room is a disaster, because I have a TON of fabric sitting out for all these half done projects. I can't wait to get it all put away.

I hope you all have a marvelous weekend!
