I've been lurking long for while both here and on your Dining Report, but I wanted to come out of hiding and say hello!

I love how much fun you and your daughter seem to have together! That's the kind of relationship I hope to have with DD6 someday.

Thanks for the link to Dean's book. I'm always on the lookout for a great Disney read, I'm sure I'll order it soon.

Looking forward to hearing more!

I squealed when I saw you posted this! I just cannot imagine the excitement that must have been flowing, following that surprise. Wow, wow, wow.

Thank you for showing us the windows and door! I must check them out next time now that I know what's there.

This is just amazing.

Ahhh Brenda, I'm so excited to hear all about the DS tour! It sounds absolutely amazing and I love the reaction pictures, I would have reacted the same way!

I'm ashamed to say I've never met the mayor, even though he seems a bit too frisky I'll have to find him next time

I stay FAR away from the Dooney's for that exact reason. I could easily talk myself into buying one. I'm going to crack soon I know it, they are just SO pretty. I LOVE the one you picked out! I think I'd get the most use out of one that size.

Uuuuugggggghhhhhhh!!!!! Please hurry with the next post!

Cute Dooney you selected. I shop the same way. Rationalize and overanalyze every purchase. I'm always checking return policies for my buyers remorse selections.

Um, that mayor is something else. He's kind of lucky you're so good natured.

Are you all FB friends or is there some super exclusive FB group? I always see people reference FB and get slighly jealous Maybe I should get my butt out of lurker mode and start posting ;-)

Brenda, thanks for the update. I look forward to seeing the big reveal. Those pictures with the Mayor were cracking me up. He sure did look feisty!!!

Bahaha, love that first PP photo. Too cute. Hide your eyes children!!

Goodness that Mayor Weaver does love you, no doubt.


This whole thing is just incredible Brenda. I mean there's pixie dust and then there's PIXIE DUST!!!!
That is the holy grail right there.

Haha, good luck trying to dance like Barb there Dean.

No hate mail here AT ALL. I actually love the build and we're at least at the crux of it all now, so YAY!!! I think I would be so overwhelmed I would be all over the place in my head.

You're so naughty leaving it there

I bet you know and noticed more things in your DS visit than I took in during my stay

No joke, that is exactly what my kids look like when they head out the door to school...

DS had to ask me to put his backpack on him this morning because he was too bundled up and couldn't maneuver it. I took pictures of them walking to school today in the snow, not to happy to go back after the 2 1/2 weeks vacation.

When we were posing on Main Street the following moments were captured by our lovely PP photographer:

Love it! I ordered the book on Amazon yesterday, even the reviews made me tear up. This one is going to be a tear jerker I can tell!

The Mayor was once again getting friendly. He tried to pull off the ole kiss on the lips but I narrowly avoided that by my turning my cheek. That was close!

Cheeky! We didn't spend much time on Main Street when went last time, I am looking forward to exploring it more and meeting all of the characters! They look like so much fun!

I believe this is an accurate representation

I think I would have fainted! So exciting!

Beautiful! I have been eyeing a certain D&B bag, but I can't pull the trigger.

Continued Next Post
Can't wait for more of the Castle Suite! Take your time on writing it in several installments, spreads out the things I can put off doing to read TR's.

I read your Plaza review and remember your excitement, but it was so good to see it again. You look like a giddy kid who just got a bag of candy...and who could blame you.

Love all the photos with all of the celebrities.

I can't wait until you rally get into this DS tour.

Yay, so exciting and what a perfect picture to leave on! You have had such a great day up to now. I can imagine how you wanted to see and hear everything whilst in there, it really is a once in a lifetime experience.

Ridiculously excited for the next part.

Oh man, what a flirtatious mayor!

AHHHH I actually had popped over to the Dining Review to read that part, but it's still so exciting to hear about!

I also have a hard time picking among all the different Dooney patterns, but you picked a great one! My mom got a little bag in that pattern as well. I love the carousel and the balloons.

That is such a beautiful mosaic and I am very excited to see what comes next! Such awesome VIP treatment, too. I would expect nothing less from the Mayor of Main Street's true love. Does his jurisdiction reach the castle or is that all Cindy?
