    First things First- I want to say sorry it has taken me sooo long to start this. It seems that ever since we returned home there has been constant chaos and one thing after another.

    At first, my plan was to edit all my pictures before I started my TR.. well I'm only at 200 and we have like 900.. soo I guess I'm going to edit as we go. I don't change all the pictures, but I like to make them look the best that they can.. its an annoying habit. Plus, I don't plan on posting all the pictures.. soo hopefully this will make it quicker.

    These last couple weekends, DH and I have been constantly going. Over the weekend, we watched his 3 siblings all weekend while his mom was up north at a job interview. They have the internet.. but like theres time to sit down and type. pfff.:laughing:

    For those of you that are just joining.. I'll give a little intro of DH and I. If you'd like you can read my PTR. (There's a link on my signature)

    :ccat:Me-Hola!:wave2: I'm Jen! I'm 25 years young.. though I feel old. ;) I'm still a full time student graduating in Spring 2011 for secondary Education.. only 3 more semesters! YIPPY! I won't get into the fact that I've been going since Fall2002 and I'm still not graduated.. we will just skip that part. hehe As for Disney, I have always loved it. Growing up, I loved all the disney movies and held a special place in my heart. My family and I went to Disney World 1 time- but we only visited MK and we didn't stay onsite.. so I don't consider it visiting WDW per say. hehe I feel in love and always wanted to go back.

    :eeyore:DH-Austin but best known as Austy. He an huge UFC fan, and loves playing guitar. He likes to write songs and lyrics.. but not always together and he rarely remembers them later. hehe He also loves fishing! Which just kind of happened over the past 2 years. Growing up, DH only went to FL once, and never to Disney World.


    DH and I have been together for 7 years (YESTERDAY!! June 7th:lovestruc) but we celebrated it early obviously.. from May 19th-25th)

    Our first trip was Jan. 2005. He liked it a lot. and loveddd Florida.

    And we got married last summer 2008.
    [​IMG]
    So I can truly say now.. Happy 1 Year Anniversary.. although it does sound weird because its not 1 year it 7.. hehe so I've been saying Happy 1 Year Wedding Anniversary! hehe

    Ok- for the trip- we were going to celebrate our 1 year Anniversary.. because originally we were suppose to go for our honeymoon last summer and things happened and we had to post pone the trip. We still went to Mackinac Island.. which was very nice! But not as nice as Disney World in Florida. hehe

    Ok I'm going to post this.. and then start on the night before we left. idk if will get to WDW or not the first post.. but we made it.. don't worry! :rotfl:

    Hey guys- I wanted to repost the "return" posting from my PTR.. So that way anyone that is just joining will get a little fill on the trip. So some of you might of already read this.


    We're finally home. and we had a great time of course! Actually I'm not sad to leave Disney World- I was really sad to leave Florida- just because of how much DH and I love it there and want to live there. But with all the rain- the constant running back and forth- being cooped up in our room a lot- not being able to swim much- and so forth- made it less sad to leave.. I was mostly sad when we left MK and my DH said "Bye Magic Kingdom" and I said awww..

    There was A LOT of rain and it kind of messed up our schedule but we tried to make the best of it and appreciated the nonrainy weather when it was here. I was talking to this lady in line and she said she comes this time every year and it never rains that bad.. soo I guess we just got lucky.. But on a good note, with rain in all- DH and I had a great time! He told me many times throughout this week that this was the best vacation he has ever been on. We both loved the dining plan, most of out food places, and the stress of not having to worry about food money was awesome! hehe DH said he was thankful for all the planning I did- because our trip was great. So I'm happy! Plus, I was surprised with how long our days seemed. They didn't seem like they rushed AT ALL.. it was weird.. but great!

    We did most of the things we wanted- multiple times.. there was only a few things we didn't get to do because of weather. When I start my trip report- I'll give a my thoughts on Pop Century and a few other things..

    But just for fun I'll let you all know- My favorite ride was Soarin!!! It was the first time I ever rode it and only got to ride it once this trip.. but it was amazing.. and we were placed in the FRONT seat.. idk if that makes a difference but it was GREATTT! Ok let me load all my pics and edit them and then I'll get started!

    I did take pictures of all my food.. I think.. hehe and I took many pictures of scenery and such and I ended up with like 800 maybe.. idk but even though I felt like I was taking pictures constantly.. it didn't feel like a lot but I hear so many others taking like 2000 pictures.. but I tried! hehe I think in the future I won't take as many pictures of the attractions and things.. because I already have them.. but I want more pictures of DH and I.

    Also, I officially know that DH is a disney world lover now! Because he said many times during this trip- "we will just have to come back sooner than we thought because of the rain- thats a good enough reason to come back right?" and "we need to try and come back this winter" and "yes i love disney, this place is awesome.. except for DHS- I hate that place" hehe

    OK Soo.. I am going to try and RETYPE my first post of the night before and day we left. Hopefully it will work this time.

    The night before, was actually not that bad. When Austy got home from work we went and bought any last minute thing. I didn't really have to pack because I spent most of the day packing. DH just checked over everything and made sure "I" packed everything he needed/wanted, besides bathroom stuff. After dinner and shopping.. I layed around and reread all of our trip plans, then we watch part of the WDW travel planning DVD, and part of Sleeping Beauty before we both feel asleep. Now I was really surprised with how easy we both fell asleep. But I think that it wasn't as hard because we weren't leaving that morning, we we weren't super nervous about flying yet.

    The next morning--
    DH got up at 5:30am, I made his lunch and coffee, and whisked him off to work.;) While I laid back down and tried to make myself fall back asleep. After laying there for almost an hour I told myself- look if you get up now the day is going to be even slower, and you are going to be so tired tonight.. and we were going to be flying at night and wouldn't get there til 1130pm. Around 7am I finally fell back asleep and was awake again by 8am.. so I said FINE I'll get up.

    My bro came over bright and early because the UFC game was coming out for Xbox360 today (conviently on the same day we were leaving for Disney and DH insisted on me picking it up and him taking it to Florida..pff:laughing:).
    So he picked me up and luckily it wasn't busy at all when they opened and there weren't a lot of people there at all. I guess usually there are for new popular games. I was the 2nd one to pick up mine and we were out the door.

    The day wasn't to bad because my bro visited me for a bit but the whole time we talked about Florida, Disney World, flying.. etc.. soo it didn't really help. After he left, I posted on dis, loved my doggy who I was going to miss terribly, listened to dtuneslive gadget all day, and waiting for DH to get out work.

    Finally 3pm, DH was leaving work.. so I was cooking dinner. I wanted to make something really easy and fast because I didn't feel like cooking, eating or anything I wanted to LEAVE! hehe So I made hamburger helper- the sloppy joe flavored one.. which sounds really gross and I thought eww when DH picked it out but its actually good. so thankgoodness for HH when you need it. When arrived home- it was 4pm.. we had to leave for the airport around 5pm. So we ate, he took a quick shower- I packed his bathroom stuff.. then my dad arrived- we left around 5pm.. we got the airport by 5:30pm. Our flight was at 7:15pm. Now granted we didn't need to be there and hour in a half early.. but they do recommend that and I don't fly at night so I had NO idea how busy it would be. So after we got in, went through security, went to the bathroom, DH had a guiness and a shot of something to calm his nerves.. we went and sat down.. waiting patiently for our plane..

    Hello gum.. and fillings.. pff. I hate those. ugh
    (Notice how my hair is calm, straight and silky.. this will be the last you will see of this.. hehe and its not my fault).

    Yes they are.. its like when we arrive at the airport I told DH- we are officially on vacation.. and then you sit down and wait and I'm like.. ok maybe not.. because flying is the worst!

    :cutie:thank you!


    Yes waiting is the worst. It feels like- you get there- you're waiting.. you board the plane- you sit more.. still waiting to arrive.. its just a bunch of waiting around.. hehe

    and yes.. my hair doesn't like humdity. My hair naturally wavy.. which I love but its like.. if it rains of humid or anything of the sort- I can't wear it straight. If I do straighten it.. its just goes curly. pff. and it didn't help that it was wet and stuff the whole time. hehe

    YAY! Welcome! and Thank you! :goodvibes

    So when I left off, we were sitting at the airport waiting for our flight.

    As I was sitting there- I went to the bathroom like 3 times along with Austin. I hate using the bathrooms on the plane and plus I was nervous. NOT as nervous as I thought I was going to be. I was actually more nervous sitting at home.. I had an upset stomach all day.

    As I was walking to the bathroom- I glanced over and thought I recognized a these 2 people sitting there. They looked like people I knew in high school and I knew that they got married. But I haven't seen her since high school. I didn't want to stare.. so I just went on my merry little way. hehe

    As we were boarding the plane- DH and I sat down and I glanced up and they were standing in the seat in front of us.. IT WAS THEM! I was soo excited to see them! We both immediately said hello but we didn't talk much after that. Its to hard to talk when on a plane because between the noises of the airplane, and the loud but wonderful fan blowing down on me.. its hard to hear. Plus, I was to busy trying to relax and not panic and make sure my DH was ok. So needless to say.. if I could of talked to them the whole flight I would of loved to.. they seemed like they were fine.. they had headphones on but also talked the whole time. DH and I spent most of the time listening the the convenient XM radio..( omgosh I love.. I want it..) and looking out the window. I kept trying to go to sleep.. but it wasn't happening this time..

    So we landed in Atlanta.. which took 2 hours.. this irriated me because if we would to fly nonstop it only takes 2 1/2 hours to get there.. no we just flew to Atlanta.. had to wait 35 mins.. and then fly a little over an hour more.. WTHeck! This is the first time we ever flew with it being a 1 stop flight. and left me tell you.. I HATED IT! When I got off the first flight.. I felt pretty good.. my ears popped a little but by the time we got on the second plane.. they were all clear.

    For as big as it is.. we got to our destination pretty quick.. but DH and I were winy.. I was starving.. he was tired.. we both hated flying.. We didn't want to get back on.. it was getting late.. OK maybe we were being babies.. but since we both were its ok. So even though DH wanted me to wait to buy anything.. idk why.. because the stores would be closed (I thought) by the time we got to Orlando, I went to the store bought DH some salt and vinegar chips, me some crackers, a diet coke to share and some gummies.


    Which I actually wanted to add really quick- I remember asking if we were allowed to take food through security- in our luggage and in our carryon. Many people I talked to said no- they won't let you take it in your carryon- and you're not suppose to have it on the plane. (except what you buy after you cross security). My mom said- she took crackers and stuff with her in her carryon and she was fine.
    So I put all my food that was for the room in my luggage- thinking it might be a little easier to sneak.. hehe I actually called airtran and they lady said we could take food on our carryon.. but I wanted to be safe.


    But as I was saying.. once we ate the food waiting and on the plane.. we both felt MUCHO better. and we both said sorry about 10 times for being crabby. I also want to say- maybe this is airtran.. but they have A LOT of choices for drinks now.. and even though you still only get the pretzels.. both flights there and back.. we were offered more drinks and stuff.. they didn't use to do that. and all that is free. My mom said when she flew with spirit in Jan. They didn't offer anything for free anymore.

    So the second flight was just like the first.. except it felt longer and it gave me a headache and my ears were clogged.. mostly my left one. (which is funny.. last time it was my right).

    So we get off the plane and we were EXCITEDDD because we were in Orlando.. no more flying for a week! BUT it was raining like cats and dogs.. downpouring...

    So we finally find the ME center.. it took like 2 minutes to go through.. there was like no one around at 11:30pm..hehe So we go out.. and I see the wonderful ME BUT I was excited.. I thought they have TV's! Well we get on..
    [​IMG]
    Its awesome.. I love the seats.. and they are comfy.. WAY better then the planes.. no one is on it either! hehe It's like we have our own personal bus! hehe Then the bus driver tells us we will be leaving in about 30 mins.. and it will take like 40 mins+ to get there because of rain!! GRRR This is DH at that point-:mad: and here's me:sad1:..hehe we were both soo exhausted and sleepy. The flight takes soo much out of us. So I tried to pass some time and we took a picture. You can see how tired we were here.
    [​IMG]

    Actually it didn't take that long to wait.. only 1 other family came on.
    We left.. even though the ride might of been 40 mins. It didn't seem like it.. and I was comfy.. practically falling asleep on the way there. So we arrive.. still raining.. We go to the front desk.. we were the last ones to check in for the night and they had everything all set to go. They gave us everything and told us how to get there.. OF COURSE WE WERE WAY ON THE OTHER SIDE!

    So we walk out the side door.. walk through the parking lot.. walk passed and through some buildings.. finally finding our building.. while being soaked.. It seriously sucked! Really bad.
    BUT WE finally made it.. and DH said "Stop we have to take our first picture before we go in". hehe This was originally my idea.. but I was so tired I forgot. All I was thinking about was bed time. hehe
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I won't get into the room right now.. but I will say.. OMGosh.. the beds were soo comfy. I slept like a rock.

    I swear.. we did have fun in our trip.. it doesn't sound like it from this.. but the plane rides are always the worst.

    Plane rides are the worst, but I am glad that you made it to Orlando safely! Atlanta can be a bear of an airport to catch connecting flights! Did you have to walk far?

    Love the pictures of you and Austin at the door of your room! You are finally there is written so plainly on your faces! :laughing:
