    Haha! Sorry, I got a bit distracted with doing my pseudo-TOC on the first page of my PTR. Hmm...maybe I should've said I was working on something really important at work. :rotfl: That's a good one!

    He's definitely in my top 5 actors (him, Jimmy Stewart, David Niven, Humphrey Bogart & Hugh Grant). I love old movies -- especially when Cary Grant is in them! Do you have a favorite movie of his? I have so many...

    "The Philadelphia Story"
    "Father Goose"
    "Bishop's Wife"
    "I Was a Male War Bride"
    "Holiday"

    Okay, that list could go on and on.

    The last day of finals are May 15th. So I really only have two weeks left of classes then that week of finals AND I'M DONE! :woohoo: Tell DH good luck with summer classes. I did that one year and it was so hard to be motivated.

    I promised myself I would NOT buy anymore pins until our trip. HA...that obviously did NOT work very well. I just bought two new pins off eBay...and I LOVE them!!!

    I went at the parasol lady when I dressed up for MNSSHP party last year. I just HAD to have this pin!

    Aaron and I have been watching out for this one for awhile. It usually sells for about $40-50. I found it for $34 and snatched it up. I really like the Pieces of History Pins.

    AND...

    I participated in the spring pin exchange here on DIS. I did two exchanges and got four different pins.

    Sorry it's so small, don't have a bigger picture of it.

    Wait, are you done for the semester or done with your degree? Congrats are in order, either way! Thanks, DH definitely needs it. He's suffering from some major senioritis. I'm sure he'll be fine. It's just rough having classes EVERYDAY during the summer. At least it's only for 7 weeks!

    Done for the semester. End of December is when I'm done with my degree. :woohoo: I hate senioritis. :headache:

    Wow, those pins are pretty cool! I love the parasol lady one from the HM!

    I love the monorail pins!!:goodvibes

    And thanks so much for outlining the DVC point rental process. We might consider doing that in the future, it doesn't look as complicated as I thought it would be!

    Cool pins! I am slightly addicted myself...I had a little spurt where I got addicted to ebay and the hidden Mickey pins but luckily I haven't bought any in a while (though I do admit to looking at them. A lot. :laughing:).

    Amen to the last one. I am so glad you found your wallet, err should I say your wallet found you? I would love the VWL, of course I think i would love any of the deluxe or DvC resorts.

    They have about 12 or so in that HM series. I love them all!!! I just saw the bride one...too cute!

    Just think...this time next week you'll be at WDW Lynn!!!! :goodvibes

    Ooh, only one semester left -- good luck!! It will be here before you know it. Do you know what you'll do after you graduate?

    Thanks...I'm such a pin addict! I would hate to know how much I've spent on all of them. :rolleyes1

    The monorail is one of my favorite things to collect! There are just SO many of them, it makes it kind of hard.

    No problem! You should definitely look into renting points some time. You can save A LOT of money staying deluxe. :thumbsup2

    Haha, I understand the eBay addiction. I always tell myself I'm not going to buy anymore for awhile. Then, I wander on eBay and find what I think is a good deal that I simply cannot pass up. It's definitely an illness!!

    Is it amazing what prayer can do for you? I've had so many times when I felt so awful and then I just say a little prayer and I feel so much better. It truly is a great and wonderful thing!

    Yes! The wallet certainly found me. I was really amazed that nothing had been used and everything was still in its place. I was very blessed!

    You should try to rent DVC points some time. Although, maybe you should wait to see how it goes for me first...just in case. ::crosses fingers:: No, I'm sure it will be fine.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!! The weather here was AMAZING (sunny and 80's!!!). I went to some yard sales with my mom and mother-in-law. I LOVE to yard sale!! Some times I don't find much, and other times I find a TON of stuff! Either way, I love digging through other peoples junk. :lmao: We stopped at this one and they were selling three pins (see below) for only $1/each! AWESOME!! We struck up a conversation with the people who were running it and they were big Disney fans too (not pin traders, though). Of course, I had to share all about the DIS and the other Disney websites I frequent. I always LOVE to meet other Disney fanatics! :goodvibes

    Here are the pins I found (I plan on using them as traders):

    The third is Snow White surrounded by the seven dwarfs. I can't find it on Pin Pics. I'll post a picture of it when I get home.

    Here's another one of my yard sale finds. I love to collect anything donkey related. Yes, donkey! I love them!!! I know a lot of people probably find this extremely odd and downright strange. But that's okay, I'm eccentric! :rolleyes1

    It's a donkey planter! I got it for $1. It looked a bit...rough. It just needed some TLC.
    [​IMG]

    AFTER - I painted it and added some fake flowers!
    [​IMG]

    It now resides in my office b/c DH did NOT want it in the house. :confused3 I'm not sure why, I think it's really quite lovely.

    Thanks! I was so excited to find it. I think I may have acted a little too excited and freaked out the person who was doing the yard sale. Oh well, I'm sure she was happy to get rid of it. It was so fun painting it, too.

    Yeah, seriously! That's why I love going to yard sales...you just never know what you're going to find. :thumbsup2

    Thanks! To trade pins at all? It's so fun...and seriously addictive!!

    :banana::woohoo::banana::woohoo:

    My sister and I were talking last night and we both really want to plan another Christmas time trip to WDW. So, we've decided we're going to go either the first or second week of December!!!!!!!!!! :dance3: Here are the dates we're looking at:

    November 29 - December 4
    December 6 - 11 -- We'd be there for my birthday (December 10)

    We're going to try to rent DVC points and stay at a studio. Here's our resort preference:

    AKV -- 40 pt (value), 45 pt (standard)
    BWV -- 45 pt (standard)
    OKW -- 40 pt

    YAY! I am so excited!!! :woohoo: Early December is my absolute FAVORITE time to visit WDW. The decor is stunning, and the crowds are practically non-existent. It's a great time to go.

    You really need to! It's simply gorgeous that time of year. The best part is definitely the Osborne Spectacle of Lights -- amazing!! Even Aaron thought it was pretty cool...which of course, speaks volumes. :rotfl:

    :dance3:

    I am really looking forward to it! I originally tried to sucker...er, I mean convince Aaron to go in December but his class schedule conflicted. BOO! Now, I get to go twice this year. :yay:
