    Thanks Melissa for posting for me :goodvibes

    Hard to tell from pic, but shower goes all the way across width of wall, took out tub, and made a steam shower.

    Marie, & Janet you'll appreciate this, looked at all the bath & body places for eucalyptus oil, and finally found some at Shoppers Drugmart :rolleyes: go figure!!

    So ironic to see this! My MIL was just out visiting and complaining about trying to find eucalyptus oil. We were walking back to my house as she was telling me and my neighbor overheard... then offered MIL four HUGE branches of their eucalyptus tree. MIL was like a kid in the candy store - cut the branches and let them dry, then took the leaves off. She can't wait to throw them in her tub with some lavender.

    I love the way our garage smells now!!!!:goodvibes

    The site looks great!! I love the pics of your mil. She has such a beautiful smile. Praying that she is totally out of the woods soon.

    I dread Joey starting driver's ed. The friend, that I work with, has a daughter in it right now. She has a couple of weeks, or maybe a month, of classes every night for 2 hours before they get into a car to drive.

    Well they are just silly heads then. You would make a great Mom's Panel member.

    Congrats on the upcoming wedding!!

    I love the pics, especially the black cabinets.


    I'm here, I just haven't had the energy to post. I have read a few posts here and there. I've been trying to get a mountain of laundry done and get some cleaning done. I swear, I don't know where all these clothes came from. I bought 36 new clothes hangers today, and I have a feeling that won't be enough to get all of the clothes hung up. The inlaws left Friday afternoon to have a weekend away. I made Mexican cornbread for dinner and then baked 5 dozen orange cookies. It would have been 6 dozen, but my silly head thought it was an awesome idea to bake the first dozen on wax paper. Tomorrow we'll go over to my sister's house, since it is her birthday, for lunch. We're going to have homemade chili and queso and the white chocolate raspberry bundt cake I bought her from Nothing Bundt Cake.

    Nothing new on my 2014 WDW trip. Since I am not the only one in control of this ressie, I will probably not have any changes in the resort. The dates of August 29 - Sept 1. Honestly, I'm as excited about my friend showing me the places they film "The Walking Dead" as I am going to WDW. Well, I'm going to get back to laundry.

    Sue the bathroom looks and sounds wonderful, especially the steam shower Your Own little Spa:cloud9:

    4 days out and I'm still changing! :rotfl2: The boys desperately want their Poly time, so I changed to YC/Poly split. Big shocker for us to end up back at our 2 faves. :lovestruc

    The weirdest thing is that I will now have 5 sets of MagicBands. I got two from the YC CL/GF CL split, plus we got a random set that appears to be connected to a long canceled stay. Now it says there will be two new sets from the current split at our resorts upon check in :confused3

    Love the reno pics Sue M. Great job!!!!!

    Two weeks sjs314!!! :banana::banana::banana:

    I think it has good staying power. I love, love, love the grounds of the GF. Plus a refurbed room! :thumbsup2


    :scratchin Changes don't work, but a cancel/rebook will. ;) You leave that ressie alone though! AKL will be perfect for you and Bob. pixiedust:

    I just don't understand why the system can't see that I already have so many. :confused3

    :flower3: Happy Sunday

    Congrats on your FINAL COUNTDOWN! I hear the song in my head now!

    We LOVED YC and I'm sure the YC/Poly split will be awesome.!

    Congrats on a week!
    I ALMOST fell victim to a lofty dream of CR-MK View yesterday but eventually decided I'd rather save the money and hold off on MK view until both girls are older... oldest DD has been begging to do WL and I think there's enough stuff to look at around the hotel to entertain youngest DD. We took oldest DD to WL when she was 17 months and she spent the better part of the trip staring at bushes and watching people, so I think WL has enough to entertain the to-be 14 month old. ((or so I am co :scratchinnvincing myself!))

    On the bright side, I have two tentative trips to start planning for in the future! :woohoo: My extended family is looking to do Disney in '15 (non-Disney hotel on property) and DH's MIL is itching to go back in '16 when the two grandbabies are 3 (my nephew is 2 months younger than DD) (probably Disney hotel) ((I know 3 means they cost but since that family doesn't get a chance to do Disney much, they wanted to wait until nephew was old enough to start to really enjoy it))
