    WOW talk about being behind the power curve.. time to revoke my Dis Mom Groupie title. But I will still "like" the Dismoms facebook page just point me in the right direction.

    10+pages back I had to catch up on.. & I still have Kara and Els cruise trippy along with like 3 others I need to catch up on and thank god Jen doesnt do pre trippys or i would be in a load of trouble.

    K going off of the old noggen since it was way to much to quote.. now member Drea has been enjoying her day off pool side with Rita... everyone say hola Rita! Rita brought a friend by too Mo(jito), so bare with me.

    1st thing... you said NO to more Sangria.. why? no seriously why? why would you turn down perfectly good alcohol?

    Poor Timmy glad he's ok was his plastic surgeon as hot as Mc Steamy?

    Congrats on 25yrs togeter Pods & El, glad you finally got a night out together

    .
    dont judge.. maybe she had the extra caraff of sangria and was feeling to sexy for her walking shoes...

    Sawaa, love the flight choice.. and Kara way to take one for the team to bring over balding the beautiful!!!

    I ♥ that you all were there without your kids but watching other peoples kids do the hula hoop. Im lol about Kara and your "JUICE" and owning the hula competetion

    P walked by and saw the new legos and asked about it when I told him where he said we Have to go back there... UM OK.. go talk your dad into it!

    I agree with you El about the other cruises kids programs. But I think thats our fault for "spoiling" them/us with starting with the best cruiseline 1st, DCL has wrecked our idea of kid friendly expectations for life. But not like thats stopping us....

    Timmys got some awesome high kicks, but wow you moms sure can make a gal cry tears down her legs LOL

    Laura so glad to hear you are ok. I was worried we would never see hottie mc hottie again.. jk glad your alright!!!!

    Aww Jen Im so jealous you and Savannah got to have a great time with the rest of the moms.

    I love that you had the park all to yourselves drinking the night away. now THATS how a dis mom does it, closing down the bar..er.. club... err PARK lol.

    Ok (rt hand raised) I promise to not neglect my dismoms again, I promise to be a loyal reader, and always read trippies in a consitant manner, with a drink in hand!

    I absolutely LOVED hanging in France while everyone else was fighting the masses to get out of Epcot. I do think they got a bit concerned when we started hiding behind bushes, and trying to find someplace that we could stay forever!!!

    I think you were trying to say, "It's crowning!!!!!" :rolleyes1

    I don't know what is funnier - Joan giving birth to Vera or Kara doing the macarena! :rotfl2::rotfl2: This update is hysterical. What a great evening in Epcot. Love your idea to take up residence in a little corner of France. Perfect. Isn't it great walking out of the park with no one around. Love that!

    Hey everyone! I have been reallly, REALLY busy since school started between Sean's nonsense and PTA, so I haven't had time to post- but, I have to say....

    OMG!!! :scared1: I KNEW Davy Jones wasn't right, but I couln't think of who else it could be!! Henry the VIII I definitely am NOT!!! :rotfl::rotfl: OFF WITH MY HEAD!! I feel like I'm writing fiction now, lol!

    Sorry for not having a clue- but I'm pretty sure everything else was true! :rotfl: Hopefully, I will be back soon to update our semi-accurate accounting of the latest DISmom trip! :idea:

    I will definitely do it again- it was soooo lovely there at night when we were alone!

    Well, I've given you a BIG break in posts, so you should be able to keep up now, I hope! I seriously bum out when you are MIA, girlfriend!

    Thanks for the bump, we really needed it!

    Nope!! You're good- I'm the one losing MY mind!! :scared: The thing that's weird is, I was REALLY REALLY psyched we got to hear Henry the VIII- I LOVE that song- I used to dance to it in my crib (according to my cousin).

    Have you heard anything yet? Is the pacemaker working better? :hug: Love you too!


    It was all pretty amusing, if ya ask me- don't forget about Evie and her dance- and that won't be the last time we see that behavior on this trip!! :rolleyes1

    I will do my best!! Hoping for tonight or the am. The PTA is CRAZEEEEEE when school starts- I am doing something BIG every day- today was the first easy day I have had. :goodvibes

    :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2: OK!

    After we leisurely left Epcot, in all its nighttime solitude and glory, we walked back to BWV...which doesn't suck, either-

    [​IMG]

    Ok, well, that's not all the BW, but it IS what you see on the way. The moon was breaking through the clouds-

    [​IMG]

    Hmmm....hope those clouds are gone by the morning- we were going to have PRIME viewing of the Space Shuttle on Monday if they did! The fun was everywhere we turned, loads of activity at the BW-

    [​IMG]

    That guy must have just been starting- there is always a big crowd around the entertainers, because they are AWESOME!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This guy looked lonely-

    [​IMG]

    Sorry, dude- I left my hoopsters at home. See ya in the fall! Some moms went up to the villa to get- a sweater? Some me time? I forget at this point, but hopefully they will fill us in. I DO know it was chilly, and I was very happy they brought back a sweater for me. :goodvibes The rest of us thought we would go into Big River Grill and hunt down Ship-

    [​IMG]

    But he wasn't working. And the bartender was VERY busy, so after sitting there for 10 minutes, we walked out to sit on the BW instead and wait for the rest of the moms. They were doing something up there over those Big River umbrellas-

    [​IMG]

    When we were all together again, we walked over the bridge to have another drink and appetizer. Ya see, we HAD to go to Blue Zoo. HAD to. It's MANDATORY.

    [​IMG]

    We all sat at the bar and ordered- I personally, along with Kara,HAD TO try the cocktail recommended to us by Tracey (Manntra)- the Serenity-

    [​IMG]

    I found this on the web-Kristin Cooper (is) the creator of Serenity that had won a contest sponsored by the vodka importer for best mixed drink. Serenity was a mix of cucumber vodka, elderflower liquor, strawberry, basil, rosemary, lime, pineapple and just a touch of rock candy syrup.

    Here she is when she was serving us our drinks-

    [​IMG]

    That was one CRAZY cocktail!! Really yummy, VERRRRRRRY unique. Very glad I tried it- someone else (Lonnie, I think) had this drink which may have been a Mojito?

    [​IMG]

    I believe there were also some ZOOberries had, but I don't have that pic- too far at the other end of the bar, I guess. And I personally can say that the Zooberry is delicious- I had one the last time, when I was here with Pods and we forgot to bring a credit card and had JUST enough cash to pay the check (although Blue Zoo DOES take TIW, they DON'T take KTTW!).

    But the REAL reason we HAD TO come to Blue Zoo? The worshippable scallop appetizer-

    [​IMG]

    :worship: No-JOKE! Best appetizer at WDW- Teppan Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops - Served with a braised beef short rib, & silky cauliflower puree. - $14.00

    We all agreed this was the BEST! Sooooo different, such an unexpected combo, sooooo delicious! I actually made this over the weekend (we had our annual Seafood gig- so I made enough for 19 adults, and served it family style on a huge platter. I started the day before meking this dish- and it was REALLY worth the time- except I screwed up and got wet scallops- which you can't sear- you need DRY scallops, which I should have gotten when I picked up my sushi tuna at the Westfield Fish Market. :headache:) Here's a link to the recipe in case you have a spare 12 hours....http://www.swandolphin.com/recipeclub/0404.html. ANYWAY...back to our evening-

    in the next post!

    Lonnie & I were involved in a VERY deep conversation, so I can't really say what all the rest were doing at Blue Zoo, but eventually we left the bar and this was who came home with us. A SUPAHSTAH-

    [​IMG]

    AN ITSK-

    [​IMG]

    And, of course, 3 monkeys-

    Here we come....

    [​IMG]

    Walkin down the street....

    [​IMG]

    Get the funniest looks from...

    [​IMG]

    Everyone we meet! Hey hey we're the Monkees!! And people say we monkey around....

    [​IMG]

    Well....those people would be right! We definitely monkey around!! I just LOVE me some monkeys!!:lovestruc Especially THESE monkeys!:love: And see? I just KNEW Davy Jones was a part of our night! :rolleyes1

    Anywho.....back in the villa, we (some of us) were quick to put on our jammies-

    [​IMG]

    hang out for just a little while, and then hit the glorious sack.

    DONE! FINALLY!! Day 4 up next!:banana: It's DANCIN time for DISMOMS!!!!:dance3::dance3:

    Oh - that Serenity is SO delish!!!!!!! Yum! Makes me want to be a bartender. Seriously! I was just thinking the other night how I would like to take a bartender course. May not be the best idea because I would probably have to taste EVERYTHING! :rolleyes1

    Kuddos to you making those scallops. They sound wonderful!
