    Well...next year is the cruise, so that one is a little different, and ya never know about what will happen after that! :goodvibes Ya know, when I got my points, I asked a LOT of girlfriends if they wanted to come with me- and none of them could go- except, of course, my Lonnie! :love: But I asked her first anyway, so that was good! But Joan was also asked- and a year later, after me talking about it non-stop, she was IN! And two years later, Evie said yes!! :banana: I had asked her originally, too! So you never know what maight happen with those girls of yours- keep at 'em! Maybe we will ALL be there in 2013! :thumbsup2

    HI!! So happy you're so excited about our trippie!! :goodvibes

    Betsy is GREAT!! She did the 5th grade directory for me this year-they were staying across the lake at BC- we texted back & forth while we were there and even saw them walking around the BW one morning when we were hangin out on our balcony! Did you see her? How was Destination D? It looks like you had a very different vacay from us, tho!

    Here we are!! Hi Tracy!! I'm so happy you're here! I'm having fun reading about your trip, too!!

    YAY! Thanks for reading!

    I think I can help a little there....:goodvibes

    We were getting hungry, and Joan couldn't resist a stop in one of her favorites (that she had missed out on her last trip)- for a yummy lamb wrap from Tangierine Cafe-

    [​IMG]

    She was a happy girl!! Evie & I were holding out for Crab Tostadas in the Ditch, though- that was what WE were craving!! So, we went on, seeing yet another character from a Bug's Life in the World Showcase-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He was cool!! We passed by Japan, and admired the Bonsai-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They are amazing, and truly only there for F&G- on Monday morning, they were gone. We stopped in Italy quickly, and I made a purchase, a Vino t-shirt that these CMs shipped back to the BW for me-

    [​IMG]

    How cute are they? Next came Germany....and we couldn't resist a peek into you-know-where....

    [​IMG]

    YUM.... pure soft gooey caramel surrounded by chocolate-

    [​IMG]

    This is what my crazy son Tyler had when I left him on his own with Timmy in Epcot that day last trip-

    [​IMG]

    This is what I would end up bringing home for DH this time-

    [​IMG]

    Tyler also enjoyed this last time-

    [​IMG]

    I also brought home some of these....

    [​IMG]

    We didn't buy anything this trip, we were just preselecting what we would get later. Which is REALLY hard to do, by the way!! But Evie and I were REALLY looking forward to those Crab Tostadas!! We looked in the Christmas shop, and shook our heads at the pickle tree-

    [​IMG]

    LIES!!! ALL LIES!!!! :rotfl: We thought these were cute, plus they made us think of Cammie & Amanda-

    [​IMG]

    Right past Germany were these cuties-

    [​IMG]

    LOVE the bubbles!!!

    [​IMG]

    We were getting closer to the Ditch, but not there yet!

    [​IMG]

    And closer....looked for the dragon, but saw these guys instead-

    [​IMG]

    That's ok- the Dragon is spectacular, but these pandas are so adorable!! Definitely one of my faves.

    Finally, we made it to Mexico!! The Mariachi was there to welcome us!!

    [​IMG]

    Up next- FINALLY made it to the Ditch- but what are we going to eat???

    Fortunately, DISmoms understand the principal behind the necklaces- teenage boys, not so much! :headache:

    We like openeing the slushie stand!! We just would like to open it earlier!!


    No kidding!! Slushies!! It's what for breakfast!! Get with it Disney!! Yea- very cool character opportunities that Pixar weekend. I heard on the Podcast that there were a TON in the exhibit area-

    Hi! I'm so happy you liked the Cupcake report- I really need to finish it in the next day or two! The necklace thing was a nightmare on that trip- NOT the FUN part, for sure!

    This is no joke- I see a petition coming!

    See? Already have one signature at least!

    Princess Evie’s screen name should be … PrincessEvie. Because she looks like a real princess. :goodvibes

    That's true, you were....hmmm...well, I'm the leader, and I was the one dragging you around to all the drinks, so you were pretty much helpless! Blame me!

    HEY! Hormones or not, it was HOT! The 12 pm policy stinks! Don't they know it's always 5:00 somewhere?

    Yea- we don't waste any time- I remember that last year!!

    That's true! Who wants beer when you can have Grey Goose goodness??:cloud9:

    HEY! They deserved it! I think they rollled open a full MINUTE after 12!!

    Wasn't it snowing when you left Minnesoder for our trip?? Well, the heat is arriving here today...but hopefully not the 101 degrees you got-

    Hey girlfriend!!! How was your trip? I'm so glad you're here!! :hug: Yes- the butterfly was from IABL, I think she was Miss Moth or something like that-

    :rotfl: Not at what you wrote but at what I am about to write.

    When Sarah was 6ish, she and Rob ran into our Mayor (small town, same Mayor for many, many years, awesome guy) and stopped to chat. When Sar and Rob left the Mayor Sarah asked her dad, "Are the Mayor's daughters princesses?" Later Rob was telling Mayor Ken the story and he said, "They are to me."

    Thanks for the morning entertainment. Must leave now and head upstairs to strip the wood in the bathroom.

    That slushie stand really infuriates me with their later opening! :sad2: We were forced to go and get a glass of champagne first :rotfl2:
    LOVE those crab tostadas.....and I ask for the Valentina hot sauce to put on them too! :cloud9: I think we may have been one of the last to be served tostadas in there :scared1: as it seems they are only serving guacamole and salsa now.....or something like that, right Christine? :confused3 :sad1:
    Love all of the Pixar peeps walking around :goodvibes

    Aaahhhhh.... the Ditch....the haven from the heat and hole in the wall with all things good and tequila driven....we bellied up to our favorite bar, and were greeted HOLA from our favorite bartender in WDW- Bulmaro- who remembered me from my last visit here in OCTOBER!!!! LOVE BULMARO!!!!

    [​IMG]

    A minute later, I was served a perfect and refreshing, ever-so-slightly-spicy jalepeno rita.

    Hellooooooooo Rita!
    [​IMG]

    Evie & Joan were given a sample to try-

    [​IMG]

    And decided on Avocado Ritas- which, we found out, are the Rita with the most alcohol (until I got an extra shot in mine;))

    [​IMG]

    And then we ordered the food we had been dreaming of- Crab Tostadas.


    Umm....no we didn't....because they are no longer on the menu.


    WHAT??????!!!!!!!???????

    Seriously- no more cooking in the Ditch. Only the cold stuff is left- salsa, guac & ceviche (which is called Shrimp Cocktail on the menu & is now a little different than before- in a good way). We were SOOOOO BUMMED! :sad: The bartenders don't seem too happy about it, either- neither do ANY of the patrons- so we collectively complained (very nicely) to the manager. You know- maybe if enough people cry to her about the lack of crab in the ditch she'll be able to convince the Disney dining Nazis to bring the FREAKIN TOSTADAS BACK!!!

    Anyway, the ceviche looks like this-

    [​IMG]

    Bigger shrimp in a bigger glass- it was delicious! The guac is like this-

    [​IMG]

    And just as we were diiging in, there was a tap on my shoulder, and all h*** broke loose! Laura and Kara were there!!! I have to say, I completely burst into tears- I was so excited to meet Laura- really and truly excited!! And Kara? Well....


    I really, really love Kara. She is without a doubt one of the best people I have EVER been lucky enough to know. We are like peas & carrots, me & Kara. :lovestruc Joan says she & I just "clique"- we have a special thing. I agree. So I got the HUGEST, TIGHTEST hug from my favorite axe-weilding girlfriend, and then....

    [​IMG]

    and-

    [​IMG]

    5 DISmoms down...one to go!

    I LOVE it!!!! She will too!! Great anecdote!

    Hey- how was your day stripping? Just the same ol' same ol' ? :rotfl2: (Sorry, I couldn't resist!).


    Yea- you must have been. I am VERY jealous!!

    And forced to drink champagne? How AWFUL!! We had that problem on another night- double fisted no less! It was the WORST! ;)


    :rotfl2::rotfl2: Ole & Sven are trouble makers! :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    I cannot wait for those slushies & a blood orange margarita!! The posse looks pretty darn good in the Ditch!:cool1:

    Too bad about the food being gone, although the ceviche looks pretty good.

    You all look so happy together...it's nice to see. I will, however, totally cop to my envy of you all!

    I'm reading karaboo's trip report from her Eastern cruise. She's a hoot. I can see why you and she get along so well.

    I have never been in that particular bar....how is this possible? :confused3 I am now adding this stop to our Epcot visit in July. Which margarita did you like the best there?

    I miss my DISmoms!!!! Love you guys! I'll try to add my take on events (like how you took the long way around WS to get to the Ditch. I think Laura and I hurdled toddlers and anyone bending over to tie their shoes, as we took a LEFT when we entered via the International Gateway and heading to Mexico.... Just sayin.....

    La Cava posted on their facebook page that the tostadas are coming back!! Definitely for Food and Wine and possibly "forever.". :yay: Sorry you didn't get to have them...guess you need to go back!!

    So the avocado 'rita has the most alcohol? I am definitely trying that one next time! ;)

    Isn't it great how the DIS has brought so many friends together? :goodvibes

    Kara- i love your top. Looks nice and cool and so cute!!'
