    Ok, so somebody has a BOG ADR they're going to cancel. 8:40 at night on our resort day. Do I try to snag it or just stick with what we have and do BOG for lunch?

    If you want to eat there I would try to snag it. You can always cancel if you change your mind

    I think they are too funny.

    No, but that just means we have a chance at almost 1/2 a billion dollar pot.

    WOOT!! Happy Birthday!! Turning 30 didn't bother me. It was turning 30, 2 months and 2 days before my DH that bothered me. He kept saying that he had to agree with what I wanted during that time because he had to respect his elders, and would offer to buy me Depends. In turn, I would offer to blend his food into baby food and buy him Huggies.

    Honestly, with as crazy as the housing market is in CA, I don't see how anyone can afford to live there. I thought it was here was bad, but I know it's nothing like it is in CA. Even a mobile home in my boys district (where they wouldn't have to change schools within the same ISD) is about $1,200 a month. My DH and I didn't have a big wedding at all. I think less than 75 people were there, no meal, or dancing. We had family there, at the end we were married, and that's all that truly matters. I'm sure they will have a beautiful wedding, even if it isn't an over the top David Tutera master peice.

    Well, at least it wasn't a grass snake.

    The crickets are driving me nuts right now.

    I'm glad y'all are having such a great time and loving the BC.

    Making an ADR at Yak & Yeti was really the only thing my DH asked for on this trip. He loved the lettuce cups so much that he has to eat there again. I know it's an app, but I wish we could get it for an entree on the basic DDP, because it is what I would get.

    I don't think I have seen a full episode of that show. I get the same way with shows though. I remember the night of the last episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The DH was a fast food asst. manager at the time and worked nights, so I had to tape the show (this was before DVR's). I pushed record on the VCR in our bedroom, kept the door open (so I would know when it was over), and went into the livingroom with the DSs. When I heard the music at the end of the show, I started crying. Then when I finally watch the episode with my DH, I cried nearly the entire time.

    I went to work today with the DH. He didn't feel well, so I drove for him. We had to go to the store, before we headed home for the night. We passed a house that had a cage near the road and a sign that said, "Shih Tzu Puppies". They had two in a pack and play. The DH went up first and was talking to the couple and I finally went up. The man gave the female puppy to me and the puppy started licking my face. The man and woman looked at me like I had three heads. They said out of everyone that had stopped by, I was the only one she showed interest in and the only one she kissed. We're wearing the fil and mil down on getting one. Well I mean the fil really because the mil was ready for one to come home as soon as I sent her a pic. If you can't see my FB page here's a pic of the sweet Ewok looking baby....

    TGIF everyone! I was wondering if I could pick yalls brains.. Our 5th anniversary trip is coming up in Sept staying at BWI. I have all my ADRs but I wanted to do something special for DH like something small daily you know what I mean?

    I lost my 9-5 job ( Im also a Disney TA) so money is limited, but I thought maybe yall could help me come up with some small things (7) that I could surprise him with.

    I thought maybe waking him up each morning with his coffee and a card and in the card would announce whatever special thing it would be or letting it be a surprise..

    Any thoughts? remember money is limited..TIA!!

    I do have a friend making a basket to be delivered on our first day and I plan on bringing rose petals, champagne and tea lights for our anniversary day so that means I still need something for 5 days!

    It's funny you say that, because that's exactly what I was thinking.

    Honestly, if they had been cheaper, I think we would have had one last night. Last night, while we were eating dinner, the mil whisper to me across the table wanting to know how much they were. When I told her $275, she said that she couldn't do that right now. I said, "well we can see if we buy both if they'll come down a little and we can pay for one of them." I think she's really thinking about it. We'll get one sooner or later. Now I just know the key to getting a dog, while living here, is to try and get a shih tzu since my mil can't resist them.

    If my brain would wake up, I could probably think of some more ideas. The only thing I can think of right now is to sit on the beach at the Poly, have some Lapu Lapus while watching the fireworks.

    Morning Friends!

    Jenny - sounds like you guys are having a blast. I am missing the beach club!

    Miss E - we have those nasty creepy crawlers. I almost had a heart attack the first time I saw one. I was sure we were being invaded by aliens! Yuck!

    GG - is it bad that I already planted the Disney wedding seed with 14 yo dd? Lol. Is it worse that she said no? :-(

    Wookie - what a darling puppy! We have a ****zu mix. He is only 5 lbs full grown which is smaller than they usually are. I am not really a dog person but our little "tiger" captured my heart! Bonus - he doesn't shed!

    Blue - love pas's idea of campfire. You could do s'mores followed by a walk on the boardwalk! What about one of the special tours one day?

    My QOTD - if you had 8 or so hours on property with two of your best girlfriends, how would u spend it? Most of the rest of our trip revolves around Epcot so looking for something different. Roughly I am thinking a couple hours at the spa followed by a trip to MK And lunch at BoG. But I am looking for other ideas. One GF is a Disney lover; the other not so much but she is super easy going. We all love to shop so maybe DD? Throw me some ideas!

    Hi to all of my Rc pals I didn't mention! Thinking of you all!

    basket - do we overlap at all??? 9/29-10/2???

    And yes, I think DTD is a great idea!!!

    My BFF and I are going to keep to a pretty tight schedule, especially since we've got the Halloween Party, but we will really be focusing in Epcot for Food & Wine!

    Oh, and both of my girls have already had the Disney Wedding idea planted....right now, they both agree to it. :goodvibes

    Maybe start out at the GF spa, followed by the GF afternoon tea, and then spend the rest of it at the MK.

    OMG that puppy is just ADORABLE!!! and I thought my pug was the cutest thing ever!!

    Well I booked a carriage ride at 8 one night from POR

    We have one day that we are sleeping in and swimming at our resort BWI, I figured we could walk over to Hurricane Hannahs @ BC for their lobster roll and rent a mouseboat for 30-45 min, then shower and head to DQ since we have free tickets (DH a gamer) and we have to meet

    Booked behind the seeds tour at epcot (DH loves that sort of thing, Ill be bored but Ill paste a smile on my face, Im actually practicing now, lol)

    I love the idea of the campfire at BC typically what time do they start? Maybe after that we can go get a few cocktails on the boardwalk

    On our anniversary I have planned champagne, rose petals and tea lights

    I decided for our last day I will surprise DH with Breakfast in bed from in room dining!

    You guys are terrific thanks so much!!

    You guys are amazing!!

    Miss & MM, we used to get some HUGE centipedes in our basement apt in Brooklyn... and they do move FAST!! One time DH was not home... there were 4 merrily zipping along on the walls... there was me spraying massively all the while being grossed out...finally stopped them in their tracks ... when DH came home he had to clean them off the walll... I simply couldn't not do it.!

    Dani, DS and DH liked to watch the show.. I only did a few times. There are always reruns and DVDs to watch :hug:

    YES!! That's how we got an Ohana ressie one year... our own Magic was on the lookout and snagged it for me.. Do it!! :)

    I caved and bought Photopass +. I figured since we are eating at Chef Mickey's and 1900PF, and my BFF will be taking DS on the thrill rides we will get our money's worth.

    That is absolutely the cutest little pup!!!! That kind of reminds me of my dog when she was a puppy. She turned 15 on Dec 15 and passed away on April 29...I miss her so much!! :sad: She was a Shih Tzu/Pekinese mix.
