The guy on Main Street was Scoop. The news reporter. I had just ran into you when he came up and grabbed your arm and started walking with you. I thought it was a fun interaction. Marissa and I had just seen the Lady Suffragette and the Fire Chief drove by while we were with Scoop. I guess the Mayor was somewhere across the street. I really enjoyed the Main Street characters.

Looks like you guys had some wonderful meet and greets that last day! Awesome too that you had two unplanned DIS meets.

I'v never seen that guy on Main Street before. I really need to spend more time there rather than run right past to get to the other lands!

Holy Schmoley, I had some catching up to do!! But I am all caught up now. No way can I comment on EVERYTHING, but here are a few thoughts I jotted down as I scrolled:

*your dress is beyond FABULOUS!!! OMGoodness, you look absolutely stunning in it! Great job on the dress, and A did a great job photographing you! Does Josh like to keep photos of you on his personage? Because those are gorgeous!

*the ride photos from Buzz and Space Mountain are hilarious! Ya'll are awesome!

*LOVE the PUSH experience you had! Buggar gum!!!

*the delighted look on Alice's face while observing V's headband is so cute! Can I just make a side comment about the headbands? They are adorable, truly they are! But every time you refer to them as "headgear" I can only think of the contraptions folks used to wear with braces years ago...think Darla from Finding Nemo!

I forgot to mention in one of your last updates that I'm so glad you had such a good meet with "Push." We had one back in 2011 (I think that was the year of Mark's surgery) and it was so much fun.

Love the pictures with the Fairy Godmother...isn't she the best?

And great photos with Merida as well.

Glad you got to have some additional time with your DIS buddies.

What luck that everyone made it back in time to meet Merida. How great that you met Erin and little V again. Sounds like you had a good time together.

Today we got this winters first snow. We got almost 2 inch of snow so I'm very happy that I got my tires on the car changed last week so I can drive now.

Yeah for extra supplies. And for something coming out well. I revisited a WIP and after a couple of lines of stitching decided it was not up to snuff (and it totally isn't) and am now piecing together another. So, I'm actually sewing!

Can't wait to see what the auction piece is. I've got no ideas from the teaser pictures on FB.

Big V and Little V being friends is so cute.

Little V's dress is just precious! Kudos to Erin!

Boy, that Fairy Godmother is a good sport standing out in the heat in that outfit. Eesh. All of the characters wear pretty heavy clothing though now that I think about it.

That guy is Scoop Sanderson The Main Street Gazette reporter. Aren't the Characters of Main Street fun?

How sweet that Big V had Little V sign the back of her pillow.

Sorry you woke up so sore! Hope you were able to get the pain under control. Glad you got so much done one your auction bag.

I had to do the 3 hour with Sarah also and it did suck!!

So I went in this morning for my glucose test. They told me to eat a half a sandwich with a glass of milk at 10 pm last night so I did. I got to the lab and had my first draw at 8 am. Then I had to wait. This number had to come back under 95 and well it didn't. So they called the rest of the test off (hadn't given me the drink yet, had to wait for the first result). I was sent home and am now waiting to hear back from my Dr. so I can schedule an appointment with a nutritionist. I was able to get my lab result on line and my number was 100. So I'm hoping that since my number wasn't too far over where it needed to be we'll be able to control it by diet. I'll keep everyone posted on what happens. Thank you!

Sounds like you had a good sewing day. Good job on the applique stitching!

I am sorry your shoulders are so sore. That’s why I hate working out – it HURTS! Please be careful and try not to overdo it.

How wonderful you were able to meet up again with Erin. I’m glad you had such a good interaction with TFGM.

Looks like someone had some “ga-ga” eyes over Bert, Andrew Bition, Scoop, whoever he is!

How sweet that Big V had Little V sign her pillowcase. I bet that made Little V feel quite special.

Ladylyons, I hope the nutritionist is able to get everything under control. Please keep us updated.

You have so many dismeets that we need to create a queue for people to greet YOU! That's awesome that you were able to meet up with Shannon, and Erin and little V.

We've always had great interaction with the Fairy Godmother. She's so delightful and typically there's short lines to see her. Merida is a new favorite of ours.

That Citizen of Main Street dude (Andrew?) looks like a lot of fun. I've not seen him before. At least he made you laugh. That is a great photo of you with him.

Just a thought.

<ETA> Changing my guess. I think it's Main Street Character Andrew Bition.

Just downloaded the Character Locator from Kenny the Pirate, and that's what it looks like.
Well - I knew that Shannon had told me who he was - but I couldn't remember and I didn't write it down. LOL

Your trip is coming quickly... Any updates on your furlough status? I've been thinking of you.

I know she does - but she has been so busy... between her honors classes and all her other homework - not to mention, she took a few photo shoots (3 sets of Senior pictures) and she has a family photo shoot coming up next weekend... She is a busy girl!

Yes Shannon! Now I remember! He was the only MS character we saw - but you are right - I forgot he just walked up to me and grabbed my arm and started walking with me... LOL So glad we ran into you one more time before we left - I like this picture much better!

We did have a great last day - it was a FULL one!

I had never seen any of the Main Street characters prior to this either - I wasn't quite sure who they were?

TFGM was just awesome! She is so sweet! And we loved Merida too... I can't remember what the conversation was with her - but we were there for a little while.

And of course - I loved meeting all of my Dis friends - they add so much to my trips... and so far, the girls have loved all of them and formed their own friendships with them... Which is really cool.

Snow... Yikes... Not looking forward to it - but it's that time of year - the weather is starting to turn colder here too... I hope it stays away until AFTER Thanksgiving. LOL

You'll have to seek out the Main Street characters... I plan to on our next trip - they seem so fun!

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

I finished my auction bag yesterday - YAY!!! I had every intention of making a wallet with it, but then I got sidetraced by ANOTHER Super Secret Project... This will be a FUN one... But it may take me YEARS to finish.

I am still a bit sore from my new work out - but today is my next day scheduled for it - so I need to do it before I head out to Target for the day.

Last night, I made eggplant parmesan for dinner - I've never made eggplant in my life before, we were all shocked that it turned out really well.

We watched Para-Norman last night... Interesting movie... Not sure that it's appropriate for little kids though - even though it's a cartoon.

I hope to have pictures of my newest bag posted today... as long as it's light enough to take pictures before I have to leave for work.

Have a great day everyone!

Taking a few minutes from my busy work day to catch up.
LOVE the bags!!
Shame someone stole A's jacket. Had that happen once. I just don't get how people could do mean things.
your interaction with Push was so cute!
We love the Main Street Characters, we also have fun interacting with them.
Sorry that your workout has left you sore.
Another Secret Project that could take years???? Ugh, we will have to wait and see what it is.

Back to work I go. Have a great day!!
