    My dear TK...every picture of me from here on out will be in said perfect hoodie...so you'll be seeing plenty of it!! ( I was freezing in Disney LOL) However I did take a few pics of it to show it more up close for my souvie chapter!!!

    I figure by the time I'm done with my trip report it will be time for me to start the PTR for me and Paula's trip and then write the trip report (with her input) and then I'll be starting my PTR for Gnomefest...I can see an unending cycle forming...I like it...not sure what Prince Phillip will think LOL

    Thanks Jen!!!! I have been anticipating your update all day

    Can I tell you how excited I am to meet Nobby this week? I can't freaking wait. I was a little worried he wasn't able to exit his "carrying vehicle" while in DTD but his 1st visit button is wonderful!

    So did people give you weird looks with Nobby? Or were they happy to talk to him? :rotfl2: :rotfl:

    I love that Nobby got a First Visit pin -- what a fantastic CM!!! :rotfl:

    I want a Disney hoodie, but have never gotten around to needing one in June. ;) I proudly wave my Southern Weather Pansy flag right along with you, Jen!!!

    I do have one of those see-through pouches -- mine has Tinkerbell on it and I loved it last June. :thumbsup2

    That's so awesome that Nobby got his own First Visit pin!! I'm jealous! Don't worry Jen, I spent a long time picking out a hoodie on our first night too! I think I walked through the Main Street Emporium about 12 times before I settled on a few to try on! And then I finally chose one after getting stuck on two....;) I love it when you get to the resort and your room is all ready! What good luck you had! :)

    It was 30% off your next stay for specific dates!!! Nobby did some seriously flirting that night I tell you LOL

    People loved Nobby, I don't remember any weird looks they thought he was great and wanted to know what we were up to!! He really made meals and character greets a lot less awkward for me because they were mesmorized by him.

    YAY for another Southern Weather Pansy and no I don't see how you would ever need one in June in Florida LOL!!!! Don't you just love that see-through pouch its glorious!

    I will try to do more updating sometime today! I go back to being a real teacher today LOL...we have a lecture and I have to start getting my students ready for their exam on Friday...that means making a study guide today LOL and making lots of copies LOL!
    Oh yes I had a lot of good luck throughout this whole trip, but more on that later! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who takes my hoodie decision so very seriously LOL!!!

    Jen

    WELCOME BACK!!!!!pixiedust: pixiedust: pixiedust: pixiedust: pixiedust:

    I totally took a DIS break for about 10 days. I think I was starting to lose touch with reality because I was spending too much time here!!! Plus, I really needed to get some work down around the house ( I redid my upstairs bathroom). Plus, I marched in the inaugural parade last week.


    Anyway - I love the start to your trip report. I can't wait to go home and look at your pictures. Sounds like Nobby made a great travel companion. Sorry, you had such cold weather. I was thinking of you when I heard how cold it was! BRRRRHHHHH!


    Can't wait to read more!
