    I'm going to guess one of the monorail resorts because I know you didn't have park hoppers.

    Is Maxy-Moose taking lessons from Mo's dog? :lmao::lmao::lmao:

    Quick drive by about the bracelets/necklaces. Miss B LOVED them! She bought one for herself and one for her BFF last trip and is looking towards buying another one this trip.

    Besides being cool (made of paper and all that) she LOVES the story associated with it. She is my...um ... crunchy girl. The fact that Disney recycles all that paper and sends it to third world countries for the women there to earn a living making these things makes her smile every time she wears it.

    She and her BFF tried to duplicate them...epic fail!

    Nice new avatar photo! :)

    We've been seated at that exact same table before and although I liked being close to the buffet, when they had the little princess parade (at breakfast) it was crowded and you couldn't get food. I know, first world problems!! :lmao:

    That Cinderella at Akershus didn't have a bright beautiful smile. Perhaps she was not feeling it! Those meatballs look good - especially the green beans. (I'm a green bean fiend!) Was that a rice pudding dessert with the raspberry drizzle? Everything looks yummy!

    Oh no!! You are in a hurry to get somewhere.... I see an issue coming up. :scared:

    This was a really cool bag to make - I have never made anything from AiW, so it was just cool to work with the Cheshire Cat! I love the colors of this bag and how it turned out... I especially love that I did the striped fabric as the trim on the front pocket - it turned out really neat.

    :woohoo: I foresee a super story coming our way... So you and the girls had to be somewhere importantpopcorn::

    Don't you just love those sudden downpours! At least it was warm outside and you'd dry off quick. But it's crazy when you aren't near any shelter and everyone is trying to get to cover...

    Pretty wild that you have the 3 moms of triplets posting on your TR. I think that might be a disboards record.

    As for your question: Does it let you enter 3 cards still? Yes, it let me enter 3 cards (and I probably could have added more). You entered each one individually and then it would refresh the page. I have a feeling I mistyped one of the numbers for the 3rd card so it didn't register. Honestly I wasn't paying too much attention and I figured it would bring me to a confirmation screen but it just processed the order. Of course this was the new site so who knows.....

    Yeah, I had never heard of this before. Those beads are really pretty. My DD's Girl Scout troop made these last year for a project about Kenya to show how some of the women there make money buy making goods for sale in the US. It took them FOREVER to make just a few beads for display and they were not the pretty (we used the oriental trading catalog). Such a neat idea. I'm sure V will enjoy her bracelets.

    Love the pictures of V trying on all the hats in epcot. And you should have just worn that hat on the plane if it didn't fit in your suitcase. I still like your hair accessories better. Akershus lunch looks absolutely delicious. We have never been for lunch but have done the breakfast a few times. We will be going to a late breakfast there in Oct but now I wish it was lunch. I didn't like the look of the new princess dresses (I'm not big on change) when they first came out but now they are growing on me, that is all of them except Aurora. Her dress just doesn't seem very royal. I think the skirt needs to be fuller and the color looks a little flat.

    Glad you got the girls to pose with the princesses. Did you get to meet Mulan?

    Where are you guys headed? You are such a tease!!!

    I hope MM got all his homework done. :teacher: How do your girls carry those books home. They must be 20 lbs each.

    :worship: I could stare at this picture all day. It must take you forever to make all those stitches of various width. Simply amazing. This bag is just the cutest. I love the tail and the striped pocket is a very nice detail. The little wallet is a great accessory. And that lining fabric looks familiar, I think I know where you got it. Your mind must be constantly planning and designing.

    I LOVE your beautiful bags! I couldn't find anywhere to post about them at the link, so thought I would tell you here! :confused3 They are RIGHT up my alley. Did I miss where you sell them? I would love some more information on them! :p I carry so many bags as a teacher and try to incorporate Disney at every chance I can! :)

    Love the pictures of the food especially the Beef Sandwich. Do they still have the Assorted Smoked Fish and Herring? :tongue:

    I would put your bags up against Vera Bradley Bags any day. :thumbsup2

    Love the Cheshire bag D! The colors really POP!!!:thumbsup2

    I never did make it back over to the African outpost to get my bracelet. I should have just bought one when I looked the first time but I couldn't decide which one I wanted the most and DD was hot and ready to move on. :confused3
    Oh well, add it to the list for next year!:lmao:

    I feel like I'm just constantly going right now. Yesterday I left home at 8 am and basically didn't get home until 8:30 pm!! In between that whole time I was only home for about 3 hours total (and not all at once!) But that's ok today was a drop off, pick up only day!! Oh and I worked on some room parent stuff while the kids were in school so that was good.

    What a fun update! I actually understand how the girls feel like ok I've seen you a few times already don't need another picture. But that's great they thought of their feelings!!

    That Cheshire bag is great!!!

    I like how bright and colorful it is!

    I love it! He is studying from the same English book we have.

    I agree I carry bags and bags and bags within bags. My grading is well-traveled - eventually it even gets done...eventually.

    I also tried to quote how you despise hills, but lost that quote somehow - hills - what are those? I have read about them, but here is the desert I have begun to believe that those are a myth.

    Hi Mo!

    I did post a link below and I saw that you saw it. So, just saying hi!

    Hahaha!!! How is your trip planning going? I need to stop by your PTR and catch up.

    It was very good - but the roll that it was on was perfect for the sandwich.

    I belive so? I am not 100% certain, since we were on the dining plan.

    I totally understand - it's great to see you here! You can always just say hi -and not comment on anything. :thumbsup2

    • Thank you - we had so much fun wearing it. I get to wear my Donald bag today, because BFF hasn't seen it in person today... It's all I can do to not grab my ears to go with it - but we are going grocery shopping - so it's hardly the appropriate time to wear them. But I miss having all the gear on - it's so fun!

      It was such a bummer, but the desserts were good. LOL

      Thank you... I hope she sees this... She has been swamped with school work for the last couple of days... and this weekend she is swamped with friends and a babysitting job.

      Yah... Sigh...

      I posted a link below - I even quoted it, so you all could find it just in case.

      We really enoyed it!
    No worries... I stop into your PTR occasionally, I will see you there too.

    Here's the link again for anyone who needs it.

    Yah - they are so fun! V wants to eat there for breakfast AND dinner next trip. LOL

    Yah - they are really cool! Well, we enjoyed lunch - but if everyone likes breakfast - I can only imagine that we would like that too. LOL

    I couldn't grab all the quotes from your message because they were with in mine, but maybe.... LOL I will be posting an update this morning - I hope I have the time to anyways.

    Mr. MM is a crazy guy... Aside from the fact that he was on the furniture - the books should have been in school with the girls. :rolleyes1

    I can only imagine how hard they would be to make! Bravo to dd for trying though.

    Thanks - it was about 4 years overdue. LOL

    Hahaha... That is a serious issue - I totally agree.

    I think she wasn't smiling because the girls openly stated they didn't need a picture with her, then she insisted and the girls were like "OK, fine...." Hahaha - poor Cindy - probably never had that problem before?

    Yes that was the rice pudding!!! IT was soooooo good - I think that's my favorite, but we loved the apple cake too. Scrumptious!

    Ummmm.... Yah... Sigh...

    Thanks Kathy!

    Thanks Raina!

    Thanks! No problem... It's kind of easy to miss because it's just a little kiosk.

    Hi Sheila! Yah - isn't that the way it always goes?

    Yah - that downpour was crazy - it lasted at least 15 minutes!


    Got it! SOmetimes I am slow. Hahahaha

    That is so cool - I can only imagine how hard they must be to make - and they must be messy too?

    LOL about the hat... I probably would have - if it had been closer to halloween.

    Yah... I am not sure I like the new princess look... It's a bit too modern for me. I don't like change either.

    Yes we did... I have photos coming on my PP Cd...

    Gotta keep people reading somehow... LOL

    I don't know - they are crazy heavy - that's for sure. Not only that, but they lug them around school all day. It's so funny, because on Wednesdays when they meet me at Target after school - the first thing they do is dump both their backpacks into a cart and they push them around the store until I get off of work. LOL They are super heavy!

    Thanks Liz - that really means a lot! Yes - you are right - I've been hoarding that fabric since Charlotte last year - you were with me when I bought it! :thumbsup2 That was such a fun trip - I miss you all! :hug:

    Hi there! Welcome! And thank you! :)

    Hahaha - probably? I don't go near herring - so I am not sure. LOL

    Awww... Thank you!

    Thanks Tasha!!! I am so happy to see you here more frequently!!! The girls and I miss you!

    Bummer - yes, next year... I have an update involving you coming up shortly (today or tomorrow).

    Hahaha! YOu are so dedicated! I don't know how you all keep up - I can barely do it myself. Thanks so much!

    Wow! I just don't know how you do it?

    I know - after Cindy left - I told them "I think you hurt her feelings" - LOL So, they weren't as vocal about their grumblings after that - they just stood up - took the required picture - then sat back down to eat. LOL

    Thanks Sandra!

    Thank you!

    Hahaha... The worst part is that the books were supposed to be at school with the girls... Sigh.

    I can't imagine...

    Hahaha... Well you can come visit me and walk my hills... I will set up my lawn chair and watch. LOL I hate walking them - they are getting easier, but they are just soooo steep!

    Thanks! We love MM!

    Thank you very much!


    Well - I finished my custom order for the week yesterday... WHOOT!

    Then I dug into my auction bag for next week - can you believe it's the 3rd THurs already? Craziness! I know exactly what I am doing - but I realized I didn't have the right color of fabric on hand - so now I have to make a JoAnn's run. I did start with what I did have though - so that's good... I am just making this bag in a little bit of a backwards order than normal. :rolleyes1

    I made beef stroganoff for dinner last night - it was delicious!

    Today is friday - for those of you who are newcomers... That means it's grocery shopping day for me. I do dabble a little bit in couponing - some weeks I am better than others. Some of the $$ saved does go into my trip fund - so my grocery shopping is DIRECTLY related to my trips. LOL

    I always grocery shop with my BFF - and we usually make a day out of it. We have a lot of fun and we shop well together. :woohoo:

    So, when I am done here - I will work out and get ready to shop. I like to get to the stores early, because I don't like to fight crowds when I am checking out - it drives me crazy!

    I hope you all have a fantastic day!!!

    D~ <--- Sorry - no outtakes today...

    Just a side note before I start... I had to go back in my phone and grab the time stamp from my texts for this portion... It was a bit crazy. And this update only has ONE important picture.

    If you'll remember, we had just left WS via Friendship boat from Morocco. I had texted Suzi that we had just boarded that boat at 1:29pm.

    From there, we hit Club Cool...

    We exited the park via the Monorail - according to my text to Suzi - at 2:12pm.

    We rode the Monorail to the TTC - it was there that we discovered we must EXIT the Monorail station to get to the other platform for the Resort Monorail. Sigh... It was soooo HOT!!! And the monorail was there... So we booked it down the ramp and up the next one. Phew!!! We made it!

    **** Why are we in such a hurry??? Well... Suzi and clan are leaving Disney today - and we CANNOT let her leave with out saying goodbye. :guilty: As we were traveling - they were already at the ME stop awaiting their bus. :scared:

    So, we boarded the Monorail... And we sat there... And we sat there.... And we sat there... I sent Suzi a text at 2:22pm "Stuck at TTC... Where can I find you?"

    And we sat there... And we sat there... And we sat there... Seriously?

    The doors kept opening - then closing, then opening, then closing... Grrr...

    Finally - the girls and I had enough... We blew that popsicle stand! As much as it was too hot to walk - we would miss Suzi if we didn't go now...

    As we were walking off the Monorail platform - guess who we bump into... It's Diser Taryn... Remember - she's the one who I ran into after our LAST Monorail fiasco - on our way to CRT... Now, I didn' think about this then - but I have given it some thought since we have been home... I don't think it was us who was causing all the Monorail issues... Taryn was very nearby for all of them - so I think it was her. :scratchin :rotfl2:

    Taryn was on her way to the Poly as well - she was scheduled for the same ME bus as Suzi... PERFECT!!!

    So, I sent Suzi a text at 2:34... "hold the ME bus - Taryn is coming too" - Hahaha... Not sure if Suzi knew who Taryn was? LOL

    Finally - Finally made it to the Poly!!! I couldn't believe how long it took!

    But we were able to say goodbye to Suzi, Bradey and Sara... And we even lucked out with an (almost) proper Dismeet with Taryn.

    I thought we took pictures, but unless Taryn has them - there aren't any. :(

    As we left Suzi... I did turn around and sneak one photo of them going across to the ME bus... So sad... The girls and I were going to miss having her in Disney with us.


    When we finished saying goodbye to Suzi... The girls and I headed into Captain Cooks in the Poly...

    We decided to hang out in the air for a while, top off our bodies with some ice water and eat our melted Napoleons from France. They weren't very good after all that HOT traveling. And certainly not as good as I remembered them.

    From there - we took the Monorail to MK... We stalled again - but this time, we had nowhere to be, so we just waited it out.

    Will we ever get off the Monorail? Will we ever make it back to our resort? Or are we just destined to spend the rest of our trip on the Monorail?
