    I got that exact same stereo to my DH for an early Christmas gift! It's a great stereo.

    Yay for finding a car rental deal! I still have to look at rentals for our trip to my SIL's wedding. I hope we find one too!

    Thanks! I'm hoping that I'll find out even lower. I keep stalking the rental car sites and crossing my fingers. :goodvibes

    Thanks! I did wind up finding some really cute things (and great deals!!). I'll post pictures tonight.

    Aw, thanks. I can't believe it's been three years already. Time really does fly by!

    Heck yeah!! The extra money will help feed my pin addiction. :thumbsup2

    I found some really cute stuff! I even branched out and bought a few pairs of shorts. That is a pretty big deal for me. I really hate wearing shorts, but they were so cute I couldn't pass them up. :thumbsup2

    It pays to be a stalker...it took me awhile to find the cheaper rates. I really think I'll be able to find something even cheaper, too. :goodvibes You know, using an off-site rental company isn't terrible...at least it's not that far away.

    Thank you!!

    Thanks!! Ha, I just can't stop buying pins! It's so addictive!!!!

    Btw, I can't believe you guys leave in just two weeks. I bet you guys are really excited. Hope you have a blast!!

    Ooh, nice! It really is a cool stereo. It sounds great, and I just LOVE to finally be able to use my iPod in my car. VERY NICE!!! I originally got it to use while I workout, and well...I kind of fell off the wagon. :sad2:

    Good luck finding a good deal. You should checkout this page on Mousesavers. They have awesome codes that should work nationwide. :goodvibes

    So, I've always declared my disdain for all things Vera Bradley. For some reason, I never found the appeal. I thought they looked a bit...country. Lately, though, I've started eyeing people's VB bags and found myself really coveting them. Then of course, after reading some PTR/TR (Lynn's and Autumnpalm) and seeing their cute VB bags...I caved. I HAD to buy one. I was going back and forth between a backsack or a tote. I though the backsack might be better for the parks, but I really LOVE the totes. This is what I wound up with.........

    It's the Vera Bradley Petal Pink tote, and I LOVE IT!! I hope it won't be too bulky in the parks. But, I figure it will be fine. Plus, I think it's really cute -- which of course, it the main priority. :rolleyes1

    Hey!! Can't wait to hear all about your trip...especially Tau's birthday party and Goofys.

    Thanks...three years really isn't that long, but it does feel like it to me.

    Thanks! I really like it -- especially the color. I just hope it won't be too cumbersome to schlep through the parks.

    Uh oh, you caved and bought a VB?! Be forewarned, they are almost as addicting as pins! :lmao: The tote is one of my favorite styles. Great choice!

    Haha...I'm quickly realizing just how addicting they can be. I just bought another one! :rolleyes1 I just won on eBay for $20 (including shipping). GREAT! Just what I need, another thing to be addicted to. :lmao:

    Thanks! Do you have a picture on your PTR? If so, I totally missed it. What kind did you get?

    I just happened to be perusing eBay -- something I know I shouldn't be doing, especially at work. I happened to do a quick search on Vera Bradley...you know, just to see what kind of stuff came up. BIG MISTAKE! I bought another one -- and it's a tote, too. My rationale for this is they are two different colors and different style totes. :sad2: AND...this one is smaller, and it has a zipper enclosure. So see, it's completely different and of course I just HAD to buy it. Without further ado, may I present my newest VB bag...

    Oooh, I love that bag. Not sure how I missed it on your PTR. Very, very cute!! Where'd you get it?

    Haha, we totally should be! Although, not that I need more encouragement to go and buy even more bags. I showed the one to Aaron and you should've seen his face. He's like, "Noooooooo!! You went and got all country!" :rotfl2::lmao: Psh, besides marrying me he has no taste. :rotfl:

    Ha, no wonder Tim doesn't mind VB. I just need to work that angle w/ Aaron and he'll appreciate them more. Great idea!! :thumbsup2

    I just found out that you can FINALLY make ADRs online. WOO!!!!!!!!! I decided to check to see if I could find anything available for breakfast at Ohana's during the week. The CM I spoke w/ on the phone said no, but I was able to find one online! :woohoo: I also changed our WCC and CM ADRs. Here's are current ADRs:

    Monday - Ohana's at 7:30AM

    Tuesday - WCC at 9PM (It's late, but it will work much better than the 7ish one I previously had but cancelled.)

    Thursday - Chef Mickey's at 7:25AM I might drop it all together and just do Ohana's. What do you guys think? Should we do both CM and Ohana's for breakfast? Which is better?

    hahaha see, what did I tell you?! That is so funny you got another one. I have a Little Betsy too. :rolleyes1 Funny thing about VB for me is that I was NEVER a purse girl at all, I'd usually just shove stuff in my pockets...well now I have a whole mess of them. I'll buy a new one and say it's my last one for a while...yeah, that works real well. :rolleyes:

    And thanks for the info on making ADRs online!

    How cool is online ADRs?

    I've never been to either Ohana's or CM, but we are going to CM on our trip. I'll be able to give you an opinion then!

    I think Ohana is better for breakfast IMO!
