    Yes I did have the bisque!!!! Yummy!!!

    I also had this.....

    Ya know? It was all good. Nothing was bad about the food, but like Ellen said, it was all so rich and creamy and HEAVY.......

    Glad I tried Narcoosee's but I wouldn't race back there again.

    And our server???? Applebee's at best..... :rolleyes:

    It was very nice though to just step outside for fireworks and the ELP (never saw it called that before!!!!) and the ambiance was nice there, sitting out over the water.

    What WAS the deal with that family behind us??? The dad was throwing a BIG hissy fit over something..... the poor kids were mortified. I'm guessing he was just trying to get something free?

So that means....VACATION TIME!!!!!!! 2 nights in NYC, 1 night in LBI (the beach, our favorite in NJ), a couple of nights home for packing, and then off to a week in HHI at the Disney resort!!! :woohoo: AND......we just booked a 9 night cruise on that gorgeous ship I toured last week, the Explorer of the Seas!! :woohoo::woohoo: AND....we booked an AFT cabin on the 10th deck so we're going to have one of those HUGE decks I saw!!!! :woohoo: :woohoo: Anyway.....I hope to update everyone today or at the latest tomorrow morning- I know you are all looking forward to hearing about our big DISmeet! :thumbsup2

    And KARA- the house looks AMAZING, you have been working your BUTT off, and it really shows!! I hope I'll see it in person someday...:goodvibes AND....I fogot about that guy at the next table.

    Loving the fun times you ladies have! My two adult DDs(28 and 24) and I are going to Disney for FD and F&W and to visit my DS who will be on the College Program so many drinks we will "tried":dance3:
    My son is actually going to be at the Cleveland Indians game tonight against the Yankees. It is ARod's 35th birthday and they are hoping to see him hit the big 600! CC is also scheduled to pitch--don't know what kind of reception he will get back in Cleveland:rolleyes1 We got to see him when he was minor league back with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers in Niles, Ohio, some years back!

    Ellen - you are one lucky person. With the Dismom Mojo going on, the wonderful trips you get to take, the friends who you go with and who take you with to tour a cruise ship, the DH and sons you have. :worship: You have it going girl!!!!!

    Congrats to your friend Paul. What an amazing thing to do.

    And also congrats on booking the cruise. Looks amazing. Wish we could get ships here in the middle of the US like that. But I don't think the Mississippi River could handle that though. :rotfl:

    Kara - BEAUTIFUL home. Wow, to not even see it until you already owned it. How very wonderful for you to be so lucky to have a DH pick out such a wonderful home. Hope you get to stay there for a while before any more moves.

    Looking forward to more updates when you can!

    Those suites were really nice. The price tag for them....not so much!!:rotfl: Are you excited for OBX?

    I didn't hear it on the podcast- it's a blog he wrote about his predictions for DCL of which he says he is 75% certain. I can't even begin to say how happy I would be about it. It would be like having Disney in my backyard- and the DREAM to boot!! We thought about booking it for August next year and then going to Vero for a few nights to make a weeklong vacation out of it. But we have no desire to go to the Bahamas (I've been 2x on other cruises and once to Sandals, and other than going back to Sandals, not really wanting to go back on any ships). I am waiting for bigger itineraries on the Dream- Bermuda or New England/Canada would be AWESOME!!!!!:banana:

    Sorry I didn't get to say goodbye to you guys last night- we were late getting to Timmy's baseball party and kind of rushed out! Can't believe Paul is going to do it AGAIN in Panama City in 2011!!! Go PAUL!!!!:cheer2:

    What kind of job are you starting? Congratulations! I would be sooooo much happier if we could go on that cruise during an off-peak time- August is top dollar, no special offers and no discounts- but you could go in May or the fall when there is alot of discounting available on all these NY cruises. We are sucking it up because we feel the vacationing with the kids clock ticking, and we really can only vacation with them in August and November. Tax season takes up the spring, and then comes baseball season until the end of July. It's limiting. At this point we have been going full-tilt for quite a while and we are exhausted....the idea of driving 1/2 an hour and starting a vacation with no other travel hassles is immensely appealing. Can't wait to park it in one of the lounge chairs on that great big AFT deck!:cloud9:

    Yes- I feel the same way- I am waaaaay behind on my subscriptions!! Paul DID finish in 13 hours, 58 seconds- and is looking forward to doing it again next November.

    Mornin Rosie! Hey! Now I'm jealous of all YOUR vacations!! :goodvibes

    The beginning of August next summer. Sean will stay home and go to daycamp while Sheree & Henry stay here.

    Hi Mickmom!! How exciting to be going to WDW with your adult daughters and CM son!! :banana: I hope he enjoys the college program- I certainly wish I had known abot it when I was in college!!

    I hope he enjoyed last night's game! Isn't CC ENORMOUS? I saw part of the game while at Timmy's baseball party last night- saw A Rod nearly get that birthday homerun he was looking for...

    Thanks, Chris! I do feel very lucky to be living my life...I am always grateful to be surrounded by such wonderful people. :hug: And marrying Pods was the best, best decision I ever made. I AM a lucky girl!:goodvibes Thanks!

    Next August- we'll be celebrating our 25th anniversary....:lovestruc

    A keeping room is also called a hearth room, or what some might call a den. It's a small cozy sitting room off the kitchen. Made popular in big open "farmhouse style" kitchens. But I like your idea better!!! :rotfl2:

    Actually I think she was 12. WAit, that's the marrying age here in SC...... :lmao:

    We were all very happy to be walking down Main st, USA, in hot pusuit of EMH and DISpeeps...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We did stop to take a group pic with a photopass photographer, and....I didn't buy it because it was AWFUL!!! How can the photopass photographers not be better photographers??? Sometimes I really wonder...Anyway, I was texting back and forth with both MEK & Manntra, and we were all right in front of the castle...but we couldn't find each other!!! It was crazy! There was hardly anyone there, yet we couldn't find each other!!! Well, eventually, we seemed to all find one another...WHAT A RELIEF!!! I was really, REALLY looking forward to seeing them, MEK for the second time, since we had already met at Friendly's a few months before, and Manntra- I couldn't WAIT to see her for the first time!! MEK's group was a little tired and seemed like they wanted to head back, so after MEK's Denny took a few bad photos of us, :rotfl:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    they retreated back to WLV. Tracey and her friend, however, were easily convinced to hang with us and hit some rides! :yay: First was BL-

    [​IMG]

    I tried to take everyone's posted pics when we got off, first Pam & me-

    [​IMG]

    the elusive Manntra & friend-

    [​IMG]

    Cammie & Joan-

    [​IMG]

    :rotfl: Wow, Buzz lightyear really CHANGED those girls! Must have been the lasers!!! :rotfl:

    We walked over through FL, stopped a for a ride on Snow White, which Tracy, her pal & I squished into one car for...:rotfl:, hit IASW, headed over to the Haunted Mansion, and of course had to drag Kara to, she is one frightened fritter!!!

    [​IMG]

    I think we also went on BTMRR...and then decided to call it a night...I think...sorry about the fuzzy details and fuzzy photos, didn't have my big camera that night...on the way out of the park, I remembered I wanted to take this photo as we were passing by the castle...

    [​IMG]

    It made the night extra wonderful to see both MEK & Manntra in the park. Nice to meet Denny, he seemed very sweet, but I am glad for their family's sake that MEK is the photographer in the family, and not him! Sad we didn't spend more time together, but we'll fix that next year! And I am so, sooo happy Tracy & her friend decided to walk around with us for a while- Tracy is just so witty, and such a genuinely nice person- I hope we run into each other many, many more times in WDW!!!!

    Soon we were back at BCV, Kara, Joan & I having our nightcap and conversation til 1 am as usual...:rolleyes:

    Next up- Flower & Garden and Kara, Joan and I have our FAVORITE meal of the vacation!!!

    I can't BELIEVE you missed my show!!! :scared1: :rotfl2: So frustrating when you miss a meet by minutes....

    I did enjoy the calamari- it was not topped with giardenera, it was pepperocini sliced up. But calamari ALWAYS makes me too full to have anything else, I should have known better. At home it's not a problem, because I just bring my dinner home and have it the next day. :goodvibes One of my favorite restaurants around here, Mojave Grill, makes the BEST calamari- they actually batter and fry the jalepeno slices they serve with it. :worship: YUMMMMMM!!!!

    Hope your boss liked the Yankees pics!:goodvibes Maybe now he'll be more supportive of your DISing on company time! :rotfl: HEY! A girl's gotta DIS when a girl's gotta DIS!

    I saw them setting up for that last week!! GO NIKKI!!!! OMG- it was SO HOT! How did you DO it?

    I'm glad you had such a wonderful server at your Narcoosees dinner- I can see where that would make for a much more enjoyable night. Our server just didn't have any polish, there was nothing special about her- I seriously can see her serving coffee refills and slingin has at a coffee shop. That's it!:laughing:

    Thank you! I'll be working at Macy's in Woodbridge. It's an on call position so I won't be getting a lot of hours until 4th quarter but it's a foot in the door (and good discounts! :thumbsup2 ). We are lucky that we can go places most times of year. The only time we can't go anywhere is from Thanksgiving to mid January. Can't wait to read the trip reports that will be upcoming from you as well as the rest of this one!

    Another Dis meet! Very cool even with the fuzzy pic. :laughing:

    Hi Ladies! Your meal at Narcossee's looks fab! :thumbsup2 I'm not sure if I could deal with all the rich sauces, either. I love the idea of sitting out on the deck to view the ELP and Wishes, though.

    Ellen!!! Love the RCL tour - thanks! I'm getting really excited for mine in Oct. My Regional VP got booked in a balcony - not bad for FREE!!! Our is midship ocean view, which I'm happy with - especially cuz they'll share their balcony! I will be sure to take lots of pics. I'm excited for your upcoming trips!!! You should write a travel column!

    What's with all those people jumping in to your castle shots?:confused3 They should have cleared main street for the DIS moms!

    Awwww it was so nice to finally meet you too Ellen!! :hug: I can tell from the short time I spent with all of you that your days together must have been a blast! Your energy and love of all beverages to be found are inspiring!! :worship: I am sure we will meet again and again....as I told MEK we have our Kool-Aid contracts until the year 2057 or so :rotfl2: Oh and that ride on SW I don't think I have ever held my breath that long :rotfl: Wow I really had my game face on in BL!!! I am uber competitive!! :laughing:

    Kara--- BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL HOME!!! :goodvibes Love all of your color on your walls and your shower reminds me of the one bedroom at Kidani!! I am such a wimp when it comes to color on my walls :sad2: I end up using a lot of accents instead.

    And Ellen again.....wow with the trips!! I knew you were going to book a cruise on that ship!! How could you resist?!! No airfare to worry about! Where does it sail...maybe you mentioned it before?

    Tracy
