    Lol, I really think about those pancakes way more often than I should! We usually have such good luck with flights too, but while it was a little annoying, it was definitely much better that the generator went before we started crossing the ocean, so maybe we were lucky after all ;). It was definitely cool to see him, he was there for the opening of a new restaurant and he had done an appearance at a festival in town. Although I wouldn't say meet, so much as followed down the streets of Waikiki, and man he is fast! :lmao:

    It really is one of the most beautiful places and the weather is perfect. :) Oh man, I dream about those pancakes, they were unbelievable :lovestruc. I'm glad I could help and the tripadvisor forums were a really good resource too.

    He was really terrible, but I still think it was worth it for the banana bread pudding, so good! I may attempt to make that at home one day...when I'm not on a diet that is :rolleyes:. The cruise was really nice, and you are so close to the fireworks, and we didn't have any problems with it being too smokey either. They book up super fast though, I've never been able to get them calling on my own. Yeah, I felt really bad, I know he hates to fly, and it was a little scary, and I don't think I'm getting him on a flight that long again in a while!

    It is really beautiful there and definitely worth the flight. :goodvibes

    Thanks! We had a really great time :goodvibes. That is awesome! The location is perfect, I'm sure you'll love it. It was really great to be in the middle of everything. We went to Oahu and the Big Island, but I think next time I'd do Oahu and Maui. We didn't like how isolated and back to nature the Big Island was :laughing:. I've heard Kauai is beautiful! It's really easy to get between islands, you take a short flight. From Oahu to the Big Island it was around 30-45 minutes, but felt much shorter. I'm pretty sure Kauai has it's own International airport too, so you can fly into Oahu, take the interisland flight to Kauai and fly home from Kauai :thumbsup2.

    Thanks so much! The Tiger exhibit is one of my favorite things at AK, it's in Asia, near Kali River rapids, it's called the Maharajah Jungle Trek. There are also bats and some other animals, but the best part is the tigers, and since the exhibit is all glass, they are usually pretty close. Just don't wait too late in the day because I think they may close it a little before park closing. Hawaii is really a gorgeous place! Lol, it was definitely a fun experience and I think you gotta try it at least once. ;)

    Thanks Marissa! We really had a great time! Glad to help, I knew you and a few other girls were planning Hawaii honeymoons so I wanted to be sure to at least get a few tips out there. You'll have an awesome time! :goodvibes

    Wow what terrible service at Ohana, I've heard of other people having problems as well but its always been fine when i've been.

    You are right about 6 people on the firework cruise being the perfect number, I did it back in 2007 and there was meant to be 10 of us but 4 didn't show up and I was very glad.

    I'd love to go to Hawaii.

    We were really shocked, but we'd give it another chance...I loved that bread pudding!

    I don't know why, but for some reason I thought 10-12 would fit, and there really was no way it would have worked. I could have been completely wrong about the number though.

    Hawaii is really a beautiful place, you should definitely try to go one day. :)

    I just wanted to thank everyone that nominated us. The past two weeks have been really difficult, one of our cats was diagnosed with FIP and we are just devastated, he is only 7 months old. We are trying to stay optimistic and do the best we can for him, but the prognosis for that disease is not good. So we are just hoping he can beat the odds.

    We are both really touched by the nomination, it was nice to have some good news.

    Congrats to all the other nominees, it was great to see so many disbrides on there!

    Oh no, I am so sorry to hear about your cat. I have three cats, and I know how important they are to our little family, and I am sure yours is the same to you. I really hope everything works out for him, and that he gets better soon:goodvibes

    I'm glad that you have something to help cheer you both up right now :goodvibes Congrats on the nomination

    So sorry to hear about your cat. I know how important pets are!! Just love him and treat him well and you may be surprised that he pulls through. We recently went through this with one of our dogs and he stayed strong long after everyone said he would be gone. I think it was because of the love we gave him. Keep optimistic!!!

    Congrats on your nomination!!!

    I'm pretty sure this is the info, it's called Magic Nails.

    One of my friends had a car, so we drove there and it didn't seem to take that long to get there. We all felt that they did a really nice job with our nails. Hope that helps!

    Thanks girls for the congrats and sympathy. He is doing a lot better this week and we are just trying to stay optimistic. There is a medicine that has in a few cases been shown to help. We had to order it from Europe since it is not approved in the US. So we are hoping that it may help him.

    In the meantime though, we are spoiling him rotten and just trying to make the most of each day. He has been wonderful and such a little trooper.

    I'm so glad to hear that things are looking up. My childhood dog was diagnosed with liver cancer years ago and the vet said she only had 2-3 months to live. We also ordered a product from Europe and she lived for more than a year after, far exceeding the doctor's prognosis. I hope that the medication you ordered helps your kitty!!

    Also, congrats on the Best Decor win! :goodvibes

    Hello
    I and new to dis boards and I just wanted to let you know your TR and PJ is the reason I started even looking at Dis Boards. In addition I had originally planed on having our reception at the contemporary, but after seeing pictures of your reception I completely changed my mind and now we are set on the Grand Floridian. Your wedding was just beautiful.
