We are back from our trip and I am slowly catching up.

I love the Peter Pan outfit!

Looks like the family had a fun time with the game, although it looks like the girls had more fun with the chairs.

Hooray for a DIS meet coming up.

Happy Birthday, Charity.

Love the magnets...very cute.

Thanks, that is our dining room actually. I had to go back and look at the photos after you comment...the wall color is not actually that "textured"...that is shadows from our chandelier.

So, I noticed something missing from the last pictures. Where's Jillian's Mickey Head? I was checking out what character each person picked and noticed her's missing.
Good eye!!! Actually, the graphic for Jillian's mickey head printed out very pixelated. I have to have the Dis-igner re-do it for me. Jillian's is Donald Duck sliding down the Aqua Duck. Will try to remember to post a picture when we get it done.

An EPIC Dismeet!!!

Why is it becoming so difficult for me to keep up on here? I feel like I have fallen so behind on the threads I follow, and I even feel a disconnect from my own PTR right now. Work has been TOO BUSY, and it is seriously cramping my Dis style! Thank you friends for sticking around!

Yesterday was our big Dismeet in Knoxville. I am SO GLAD I was able to sort things out at work so that I could go!!!

I left the house around 7:30 yesterday morning, because I had one little errand to run for my friend Cheekypoppins. She wanted me to pick up a gift to give Ariana from her. I was on the road by 8 am. I hit a TON of fog about halfway there, but made it at EXACTLY 11:30, our meeting time. So far Ariana was the only one there, so I was able to give her the gift from Cheeky.

Opening it:



And the gift...



What??? A bagel and a banana??? You have to know Cheeky to appreciate this gift. She nicknames everyone. When at Disney, Ariana eats a bagel and a banana for breakfast every morning, so Cheeky's nickname for her is Ariana Bagel-nana! And, there may have been a gift card from Cheeky tucked into the bag as well.

Before long, the rest of the group arrived. It was so great to see everyone. I was lucky enough to have met them all before...except D~'s hubby. Can I just say, that he was SUCH a good sport yesterday! He was very friendly, and just took all our Disney craziness in stride!

We were seated for lunch, and soon bread service arrived:



Our server was kind enough to take pictures of our motley crew:



We had such a great time catching up and just visiting. Here is D~ with Lidian's daughter:



Ariana had just gotten back from a visit to the World, and she brought something to show us...



A magic band!! Yeah, we are Disney geeks... we had to pass it around and ooh and aaah over it.

Lunch came. I got the Fish and Chips:



There were more fries under the fish. The empty spot in the basket would have been where the cole slaw was...the cole slow that I promptly removed and placed far away from the rest of the yumminess.

Since we were eating at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch dessert was a MUST!



Lumch was delicious and fun...then it was time to move on to MORE FUN! Where to?

The Disney Store of course!!!



It was fun to walk around in there. They had mostly little kid clothes and toys. I was a bit disapointed. I am VERY spoiled by our store in Nashville, it has lots of dishes, adult clothes, etc....and it is an outlet! I did buy one shirt for either of the girls to wear...for $4.99! Can you believe I got something Disney for so cheap? Of course, I forgot to take a picture of it before I had Brian stash it in the Disney tote in the attic. It is being saved for the cruise.

After leaving the Disney Store we just wandered around the mall for a while....mostly looking for D~'s hubby, who would get tired of all the Disney chatter, and just disappear on us from time to time.

We did do one thing that was fun and hilarious...we all crammed into a photo booth together:



Soon it was time to say goodbye, as Ariana and I had long drives home that afternoon. Before we left, we had one more group photo taken:



It was a great day, and I was SO GLAD I got to go!!!

Girl, I know all about our "real life" cutting into our "Dis life". I haven't had time to do much in the way of Dising lately. Yay for the fun Dismeet! Lacey has mentioned that the Knoxville Disney Store didn't have as much adult stuff. That's too bad. Uhhh, excuse me, us adults like Disney too!

Love Cheeky's gift to Ariana...so perfect for her.

Looks like you all had a great time.

I totally forgot Lacey lives in Knoxville! I will have to try to remember that next time we do any sort of Dis-meet in the area. Would she be interested in meeting us crazy Dis-ers?

Charity had a great birthday. On the actual day of her birthday we all went out to lunch AND she is now spending the whole week with grandparents out of state.

We went into NO flip-flop stores...but you better believe we had a conversation about her and Suzi dragging you around to all the flip-flop stores at MOA! Soooo....I think as payback, you need to drag the two of them around to EVERY CAMERA SHOP you know of in the greater Chicago area!!! But of course, you didn't get that idea from moi...

And yes, Josh was such a good sport. Genuinely good people, he and D~!

Did you get the pictures I sent to your email account? It was my pleasure to pass on some Cheeky pixie dust to our friend Bagel-Nana!

That photo booth idea came from D~ and her DH! It was so much fun! One of these days, when I make it up to a Chicago meet, I want to meet you and Mark too!!!

Weekly Disney Activity #7

This is going to be a boring activity update...mainly because my kids are out of town this week with my parents. Brian has to do school work all evening tonight...so what is a Disney loving Mommy to do????

THIS is what a Disney loving Mommy is going to do...all by myself:



And just to keep with the theme, I am going to have one of these, too:



It will be a mini, and I will be doing a little bit of extra exercise to allow for it...

But yeah...

I am NOT gonna let a little alone-ness stop me from my weekly cruise countdown activity!!!
