    I wanted to get that Water bottle, but I never made it in there after work yesterday. Good for you for getting the green bottle and for finding a sale. Last week I got each of my four nephews a shirt there for about $3.00 each. Then I got myself a tink shirt for $4.50. Gotta love it!
    I hope the next two weeks go fast for you!

    Good deals on the tees! Our store didn't have any adult tees on clearance but I did get Caitlin one of the boys tees for $3:lmao: (Last year when we were there people were guessing she was 12!) And thank you! We hope the next 2 weeks go fast too! Actually they should because we'll be really busy! We are doing 2 garage sales to raise $ for our "Relay for Life" team on top of all our usual stuff.

    Yeah the classics are the best :thumbsup2 I think Cars was pretty good but I just wasn't into Bolt & Wall.E as much, they def lack the quality of the classics :( I know six days is much more exciting but my DBFF is flying out as we speak , so that is much more exiting to me . I guess I look at her trip just as you do mine . LOL Having any kind of Disney trip planned is exciting though :thumbsup2

    We are at the 12 day mark! Woohoo! ::MinnieMo We just called and added the DDP so now the entire trip is OFFICIALLY paid off! :cool1: I hate that the full amount is due at 45 days out so we just wait to closer to the trip to add the DDP and let the money sit in the bank just a wee bit longer. I could have waited til 3 days prior but I want to do the online checkin at 10 days out and I thought it might be too hard to add the DDP after we had checked in. So now everything is paid for and we just have to hope the next 12 days hurry by!:rolleyes1

    I think that's smart to wait to add the dining plan. That's one thing I like about DVC - you don't have to pay for it until checkin. 12 days - WOW - so close, so close!

    For the past two days we had 80+ degree weather here in Michigan!:cool1: Having blue skies and sunshine has made us even more eager for our trip! Yesterday in preparation for our trip I planned a little suprise outing for Workaholic and myself. (Caitlin had to work) I decided to take him somewhere we could enjoy the lovely day :)and he could practice using his new camera. Where did we go? We visited one of the gems of the Detroit area. We have a membership to this place we love it so much! We went to the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. The village just reopened last weekend for the season so it was our first visit back. DH loved using that camera and with all the pics he took he should now be a pro!:rotfl: It just so happened that it was "Day out with Thomas the Tank Engine Day" so the place was packed with preschoolers. They all looked so cute in their railroad garb! Anyway we had a fun time and enjoyed the sunny day. IF you ever find yourself in the Detroit area it is a must see place! When Caitlin came home we continued with our Disney Film Fest and watched Ratatouille. DH had never seen it so that was his pick. I have to admit all the rats around food kind of freaks me out :scared1: but it is a sort of cute movie.

    That leads us to today! Guess what today is? Yep! 10 days!!!!:dance3: So first thing this morning I did the online check-in! It is very simple and uneventful to use and doesn't really make me feel any closer to being there BUT it was something new to try. I have a lot to do today so goodbye and see ya real soon!

    Hey we must live so close, I just took my girls to the Henry Ford Museum. They get a kick out of the wiener mobile. lol
    Anyways I started reading your report but had to skip to the end cuz 5:45am will be coming way too fast but I cant wait to finish it tomorrow! Oh and you will LOVE CBR, over POP I think, and cant wait to read about it when you get back! Have fun and think of us Michiganders because Im sure this gorgeous weather wont last here!! lol

    Ok I said I was going to bed but I kept reading and I saw you chose POFQ instead. That is our favorite place!!! And the beignets are sooooooooo good. Have fun!!

    How cool someone from Michigan:thumbsup2

    Keep on reading we changed resorts 4 times!!!:lmao:

    I think most of the phone calls to the WDW reservation hotline these past few months were from me :lmao:


    We will keep our fingers crossed for you that the weather will stay nice and warm! It is supposed to continue on until Monday so at least we got a couple days :woohoo:

    Yay for the Single Digit Dance!!!:mickeyjum:mickeyjum:mickeyjum I see Caitlin told you all she "officially" made the Dean's List. I already told ya'll that but she was worried her grades wouldn't be what she expected and that I would "jinx it".:rotfl: So now it is official since she has her report card! Her dad and I couldn't be prouder. She is smart and beautiful both inside and out!
