Oh no... It's not almost over yet - we may be on the last day, but I still have a TON more updates to post and my "Now n' Thens"... I bet it will be closer to November before I finish.


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

Yesterday morning - I had to rush off to meet my cousin for breakfast.
D~
I am sorry that the shut down is affecting you guys. I hope Josh is able to get back to work real soon!

I am so glad to hear you still have quite a bit left on your TR. I do so enjoy reading it every night!

How exciting you got to meet up with your cousin! I'm so glad you had a nice time.

LOVE the SM pictures!

Grrr... We had the ride to ourselves - thankfully, because I took lots of pictures (no flash though).

I may have some exciting news soon!
I can't ride Space Mtn at all - it scares the crapola out of me... I do not like dark coasters at all.

Oooh - can't wait to hear! I hope it's the news I am hoping for.

Love COP! My favorite part is watching the dog, he's so cute!
CP is great - I did very well not overloading on the food this time, and I was much more comfortable on the entire trip. It's so easy to go over board when everything is so good.

COP is the best - can't do WDW with out it.

I sure hope you get a chance to try it on your next trip.

You will love it- I promise!

Oh yes it is Four Parks, One World... I have it in my car - and I play it all the time... I am just afraid I will get into an accident while it's playing, then the paramedics will come to rescue me and wonder what that crazy music is that's playing in my car. LOL

Thanks!!! I am very excited about them - but I think I will wait to show them until I start my next PTR - as hard as that is for me to do.

Yup - and then I will start my next PTR... So, no worries - I will always give everyone something to read. Personally - I have more fun writing PTRs.

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

So, yesterday was interesting - and it didn't go exactly as planned.

I got a late start in my sewing room... I was goofing off a little bit too much on the computer... Trying to work out some kinks in our next trip... Sigh.

Then I worked out (good girl)...

Then, finally - I made it to my sewing room - only an hour later than I like to.

As I was laying out the pattern for my current custom, my phone rang... It was Target... Uh-oh.... "Are you coming in?" "No...???" LOL "Am I supposed to?" "Yup - you were supposed to be here 1.5 hours ago..." "I was???" "Ooops, sorry... I will be there asap..." Crap... Crap, crap, crap...

Showered, dressed, ran out the door... No lunch (and I won't get to have a break either, since my shift will be shorter than 4 hours... Sigh)... I got there with only 2 hours leff of my shift... If I would have known my shift was so short - I would have just told them I wasn't coming, because it makes NO SENSE for me to drive 30 min each way for the 2 hour shift I ended up working. But, the nice person I am, I offered to stay later - so they let me work an extra hour to make up for it.

The great part about this... I have today off - ROFL...

I cut out the rest of my custom order when I got home last night - so I am all ready to work on it today...

Victoria has her next custom all drawn out for me... I do believe I've created a monster. LOL

I also need to start working on my auction item... As the 3rd Thursday is ONE week from today... My auctions always sneek up on me.

So, that's about all for today... I WILL have last week's custom order posted shortly - I was having PC issues yesterday, so Josh woke early this morning and fixed them for me. Such a great guy!!!! I will also have an update for you all shortly too...

Have a fantastic day everyone!!!!

Pinocchio's Blue Fairy UPB set

I really love this bag - It turned out fantastic, I think the Blue Fairy applique is one of my best appliques yet... I know I've said this before - but faces are super hard to do, and I think this one turned out pretty good.

Day 9 Part D

So, as we - all of us - My girls and I, and Bernadette and family were walking to Monster's Inc Laugh Floor - we happened upon Push.

For those of you who didn't read my last TR - Victoria searched high and low for him and we never found him on our last trip.

Well, here he was, right in front of us - so we had to stop...

I know Bernadette has this whole encounter on video - I wish I could post it for you... but maybe some day she can email it to me and I can add it here?

Anyways... We were all crowded around Push...

The conversation started off with Victoria saying "Hi Push!"... And Push was soooo excited that Victoria knew his name!!!!


Then Victoria told Push she had some garbage for him... He freaked out and told her "I LOVE GARBAGE!!!!" So, she put her chewed piece of gum into his trash compartment (ROFL... Chewed gum - ONLY my child would do that ). Push told her that it tasted like boogers... He went on and on about the booger tasting gum...




Then he turned to me (ME!) and told me he liked my headband... He asked me if he could try it on... So, I took it off my head and put it on his... He wheeled around screaming/singing, spinning around and showing off my headband... It was very cute!


It was then that he noticed Victoria had a headband too - and he proceeded to ask her if he could try her headband on too... I don't think she let him??? I can't remember now...


Then he went to Victoria and begged her for a hug...


Victoria tried to get Emma to give him a hug - but Emma wanted nothing to do with him... She also tried for Lizzy...




So, Victoria made Allison give him a hug...


So, PUSH made Victoria give him another hug... He was awfully touchy feely this morning...


And finally - he made Victoria pose for a picture with him...


Push was so FUNNY! We just love PUSH!!!!!!

Love the Blue Fairy Bag! It looks like you guys had a great time with Push. I am ashamed to say, I learned about Push AFTER our last trip. Our 2 year old would have loved him! I am determined to find him this year. Is he always in that part of tomorrow land or do you have to look for him?

Love the Blue Fairy bag!

Can't wait to see what you make for the next auction. I will not be bidding this time as I will be having too much fun in Disney!!

What an awesome interaction with Push! Where you able to spot his friend? I hope you do get a copy of the video because I would love to see it.

I love the Bue Fairy bag. It turned out so well. Sorry about the mixup with your schedule. Our schedules are posted on line ,so it's easy to see when and where we're supposed to work. Sounds like you guys had a great encounter with Push. He's so funny. Sadly, we didn't get to see him on our trip this year.

The Blue Fairy bag is awesome D~. You certainly do have a way to make the faces come alive!

Love the Push story! I never noticed him at the park this trip, though I could have walked right by him. I am aware of him, just have never seen him in action.

Well, we did it! Waiting to hear from Disney....should know something in a few weeks.

That is too funny. I usually play it in my car as well. I just claim it's one of Jonah's CDs.

ETA: I am so jealous you all got to meet PUSH! I hope you can add the video.

I mentioned the Blue Fairy and DH had to see it. He thought it was cool. Unfortunately, due to other reading I have done, I can't look at the Blue Fairy the same way most Disney Fans do.

That being said: I still love the bag...and the Pinoccio ears on the wallet was perfect!

Still don't get how Target can not make sure the employees have a definite copy of the schedule.
