    Sorry to be MIA- but here's a quick update before I go on my cruise TOMORROW!!!! :banana:

    On Saturday night, we were having dinner at one of our favorites, Sanaa. I want to say this was my 5th time here, and I am happy to say that I have NEVER been disappointed! We arrived a few minutes early, and went outside briefly at Kidani while we waited for our buzzer...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We also walked around inside, checking out the world's coolest bathrooms and whatever else was down there-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Minutes later we were seated, and Kara got busy right away-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Amazingly, we stopped talking long enough to order! Of COURSE we got the bread service-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I LOVE getting the bread service for more than 2, because you get ALL the dips! And as far as the bread goes, we got Onion Kulcha, Paneer Paratha & Naan- although I am VEY partial to the first two, I really, REALLY love them. We also got some salads-

    [​IMG]

    Just for all of us to have a small taste of each. We were also flying the friendly skies this evening...

    [​IMG]

    Although one of us had a Pinotage- yummmm-

    [​IMG]

    For our main courses, most of us had slow cooked in gravy stuff, and the rest had the sustainable fish-

    [​IMG]

    Both Laura and I tried the newer item, which is a Spicy Durban Shrimp. And let me just say, to those Indian cuisine fans out there who have complained that this food is too Disney-fied and doesn't have enough heat....this Durban stuff is your answer. HOT HOT HOT!!! I was fine with it (although I actually do prefer the shrimp in green curry) but for Laura it was a little over the top, so I asked the server to bring her the green curry instead- which she really liked soooo much better! The short ribs & chicken were both TDF, as always! The sustainable fish was arctic char, described as Today’s Sustainable Fish
    with Shrimp and Scallops served with seasonal Vegetables
    in a light Curry Broth Market Price-

    [​IMG]

    Light and delicious as always! We were all enjoying ourselves-

    [​IMG]

    Some of us having their own special fun-

    Cont'd next post-

    I'm not a seafood eater at all, but the wine flight looks wonderful.

    Have a great time Ellen! I really hope I can count on you for a full report of RCI. I have never been and I'm hoping when the kids are a bit older we will be able to give it a try.

    Also dying to know how the stripper pole works out for ya.....;)

    Have a BLAST!!! LOVE San Fran- you will too!!!

    I promise I will- I know it's so helpful for us umm.....DISgeeks....to hear about how another line measures up compared to our beloved DCL! I think we are going to really, really enjoy all the cool things on the ship- like ice skating, mini golf, roller blading, rock climbing.... and 9 nights instead of 7? There's NOTHING wrong with that!! :yay:

    Looks like you certainly had lots of fun. None of that food looked good to me, too colorless! Kind of brown & grey!

    Have a safe, fun trip.

    Great videos! Love the dancing. :banana:
    A question I often have had, how did DISmom trips start? I have read all the trip reviews but - who came up with the idea in the beginning, what prompt the creation of a yearly trip, how did you choose your name, etc.?

    It has been kind of quiet this week so I thought I would share some news. This is a happy week for us, Disney trip in a couple of days and :banana: my daughter had her braces removed. She is one excited child. She has been wearing them since March 2009. Sorry the pictures are so large, I am still trying to learn Photobucket. At least now I can upload and download.

    :lmao: Before leaving the orthodontist’s office they gave her a goody bag filled with sticky candies, gum and popcorn. And yes, she chewed the entire pack of gum in one day.

    In 2008 Ellen and Lonnie did a girls only trip to WDW. Then in 2009, Ellen PM'd me on the DIS and asked if I wanted to join them since they had the room already covered by her DVC points. Ellen and I met by reading each other's TRs but we had never REALLY met, or even talked by phone.

    She was like, "this might sound really weird, but I admire you so much from afar that I would be honored by your presence......" OK, not exactly, but don't ruin it for me.... Besides, she is gone this week so maybe she'll never notice! :rotfl2:

    But really, she did just kinda throw it out there. I mentioned it to Jeff and he said, "You are a 20/20 episode waiting to happen....." :rotfl2:

    Then Ellen and Cammie had met at a rest stop somewhere up in their neick of the woods, and so Cammie was invited too.

    I had met Cammie for lunch at MK around Christmas time (maybe NOvember 2008?) and she and I had originally met on another DIS thread, plus we followed each other's TRs.

    Since I lived in Florida, I tried to plan a weekend in WDW whenever one of my DISbuds was there with their families, so I could meet everyone!

    I met friends from MA, TN, TX, MN, IL and England!!!!!

    And then when Ellen and I first met (with my suitcase in my hand like a vagabond), it was love at first sight!!!! :love:

    And since then, I've done a very good job of spending her DVC points every year! :rotfl2:

    Kate, your daughter looks beautiful!!! So grown up! My Ally will be getting braces soon. She has to lose 2 more teeth first, but our next ortho appt is December and I have a feeling that the braces will be scheduled at that time..... :sad2:
