    Okay after all our FB fun, I am back to catch up ;)

    I have two Earl of Sandwich coupons for a free sandwich with the purchase of any sandwich and fountain beverage (from the Entertainment Book) if anyone wants them. Just PM me and I will be happy to mail them :goodvibes

    Koh1977 - I was surprised to see CR and Poly at 30% too...you NEED to go for it ::yes:: As for the walk from GW vs BLT, seriously maybe a minute or two more, that's it. We REALLY loved being able to walk back and forth to the MK. But like MAGIC said, I live in FL, so I have the tropical scenery all year round.

    Linda - I am going to try my best to get up there this fall ::yes:: I honestly dont like going in the summer as it is just toooo HOT for me!

    Ginny - thanks for the hug, hopefully we will know something this week and be done with this emotional roller coaster once and for all.

    Miss - hope you had fun dying eggs today :) I hope Miss M is feeling better and her cough is settling down. I really hope we are renewing our passes, you KNOW I want to spend an intoxicating night with you :drinking1

    Janet - I am sure you and Sam are having a BLAST :cool1: I use Flickr to upload photos, so I am sure it is different than most who use Photobucket. But if you text me some pics, I will be sure to upload them for you ::yes::

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Hi ladies! Just got the kiddos off to bed, it was a lovely day here. Sunny and about 10 celcius. We went for an evening stroll and to the park. DD4 was running kicking her soccer ball and took a header on the sidewalk though!:crazy2: Just a minor goose egg, just in time for Easter!;)

    Wow I have been trying to get the My Disney Experience App to work right on our iPad, what a pain. :badpc: I give up I think. I just hope they don't try to implement it before our trip and we miss out on something. :confused3

    Melissa: I was just catching up on your blog, what a time you have had lately. Hugs. I am so glad to hear that all your hard work with Steven's diet has made a difference, what a great job you are doing. :worship: I really admire all you have done and continue to do. Congrats on the website!:thumbsup2

    Miss: I know what you mean about the AP's. We were going to get them in September, but then changed our minds. Duh. Oh well, moving on right? I am sure you will figure out if they are right for you guys. I hope we made the right choice too!:thumbsup2 Hope Miss M feels better soon.

    Thanks for the kind words about my parents. It is nice to know there is support here.:grouphug:

    Jen :)

    Taxes tomorrow!! Woohoo! Fun! (Not really, but we have someone else who does them, so I can't complain much.)

    Made this pepperoni pull apart bread that was pretty good for dinner tonight. Banana pudding poke cake for dessert tomorrow. I love Pinterest! :)

    Koh1977, I answered your Poly GV Vs. CR Tower question on the CR thread:)

    Of course, I LOVE your photos, Melissa!

    Today is a great day for packing, Jeanette;)

    I'm going to make some ADRs today:surfweb:. BoG won't be one of them since that fills up at 180 days, unless you like eating dinner at 9:30. Happy Easter and a Happy April to all!

    Happy Easter to all of my beautiful RC friends who are celebrating today!!!

    With DH and the girls being Greek, we celebrate the Orthodox Easter, which doesn't happen to be until May this year.:scared1:
    Usually, they are pretty close together or sometimes on the same day. My girls are being pretty good about not getting Easter baskets today though. ::yes::

    Off to church!!! Have a great Sunday! :goodvibes

    I love DH's dining idea. I know my DD would LOVE that over the 'adult' food I'm serving today, and it would save me a lot of trouble. Now you've got me thinking about a dinner change!:rotfl:

    Be safe tonight and if you're not going to pack much, in honor of Deena, you can do your toiletry shopping at Basin and in honor of my DD, your clothing shopping at TrenD.

    Hi my RC ladies....hope those of you celebrating had a lovely Easter. I asked this over on the BC thread, but I am sure you guys can help me out with some advice too. I am going to copy what I asked over there...

    "Hello everyone...hope you all had a lovely Easter Sunday! I have a question for everyone. Just today on the old WDW site (which is the only one we can get ) It finally popped up that I could do online check in. I started going through the motions to do it, but then it kicked me back out of it. I was going to try again tonight, but my question is this.

    Does it really matter if I don't do the online check in? We are staying CL, so I wasn't sure if it was really necessary. Is the check in at CL part of the experience? But I do wonder about making the requests with the online check in. Will we get the daybed with us being five? If a full balcony is important should I do the online check in and request that?

    Any advice is appreciated."


    Thanks all!!

    Jen
