Brenda just read the first 50 pages... The Bills game is out of hand at least your report is enjoyable...

Ha ha! I'm pathetically slow, that's for sure. I am trying to simultaneously keep my dining review going as well.

I'm glad you know what the bend and snap is!! I thought I may have to insert a reference to the movie but then if I did it wouldn't matter since they wouldn't know anyway!

December will be mostly Dismeets because of a group of us that are going for some fun together. I'm fortunate to pick up a few more Dismeets from folks outside the dining boards as well. We're definitely blessed to be able to do this.

I love that Em sat down and colored with the kids. I enjoy coloring myself.

Great pictures at the Writers Shop and throught the Studios (those clouds didn't look so good though).

I'm so glad we got a few minutes together before Mark and I headed to the airport on Sunday. Thanks again for the goodie bag and, more importantly, the hug and friendship.

What a lovely update! Sometimes those moments in Disney that are the best are those that don't translate well into a trip report! Lol.

Sounds lovely! And a carrot cake cookie is always a good thing!! Wasn't my favorite treat, but I'd have it again!

So glad that you guys are off having a blast in Disney right now!! So awesome that we got to meet up and I can't wait to hear all about everything!

Wed. August 21, 2013: Day 6, Part 4

It was at this point in the day that I felt fully justified in moseying over to the Writer’s Stop for one of those legendary carrot cake cookies. Plus it kept us in the a/c and out of trouble. It was un-crowded in the little shop so it was no problem getting a small bistro table to relax and enjoy browsing the books. Added bonus was the wonderful smell of coffee!!

I remember that afternoon with no lines, no rides, no characters, and no crowds as one of my favorite times of the entire trip. It was so wonderfully relaxing but better still was spending time with my baby. As I wrote in my notes and recall now, sometimes it’s the simple moments of shared laughter and a few tears that create the most memorable of times.

That's all for the next 10 days since we leave in exactly 5 hours and 45 minutes. I'll be posting some photos and such on Facebook so any FB pals can have a preview of what is to come.

What - they have books at the Writer's Stop, too? This is the first I've heard about books. It has always been the goodies that make the trip reports.

DH and I had a very relaxed trip last week. It was the first time in all the years of going to WDW that we stopped to watch the shows and other events that happened as we walked by them, and skipped all but a few rides. We caught the castle show for the first time ever and DH wondered when they started having that show. I told him it had been there forever, he just never wanted to see it. That fp+ for TSMM was golden. But all in all, we went on maybe 8 rides, and it was wonderful. The biggest development was that DH really does like having an ADR after all, instead of always being "spontaneous."

I hope you had a great trip.

Hi Brenda! Got a little behind because of finals, but I hope you are having a fabulous trip in WDW!

I LOVE coloring. I colored a Duffy in August while my sister met Alice and it was one of the most relaxing parts of my trip.

I hope you guys tried the drawing class! Normally I only draw stick figures but I have done it the past few trips and I really enjoy it.

That sounds like a great afternoon at the Writer's Stop. I'm not really a carrot cake person but I've heard so many things about that cookie!

Thanks guys for keeping up. We are still in WDW for 3 more days. We've had some great meets and my Dis ladies that I am traveling with have been fabulous! Updates to follow upon our return next week.

This holiday season at Disney is just so amazingly beautiful.

Hmm, now you two sure do look familiar.

Brenda, obviously I have to take a moment here to thank you SO VERY MUCH for spending some of your busy schedule with me. I will never be able to repay you for the amazing Illuminations Cruise and it was such a supreme pleasure to meet and spend time with you and Em. I will never forget it.

Getting back to this TR, I just love the statement about the little moments that mean so much. I've learned to not race from ride to ride and show to show and just enjoy the Disney moments, and the recent trip was all about that for me.

And YAY, I actually got to see a Bo photo happening!!!!!

I am so bad at this Dis thing. I was surprise that I wasn't further behind. For a moment I forgot you were in the world. I knew you were there due to the fact that when I say a message I thought you were back. It wasn't you though. Enjoy your last two days (I think that is what you have left.) Any ways look forward to hearing about your trips.
