They are in the middle of doing something that is disney related but im not sure if she is keeping it a secret for now til its done or what but once she has a break from it I will try to get her to write one.

    I loved your story. It was so great!!! I would so love to do something like this with DH's family or mine. We've never taken vacations together since I've been married so it would be nice for us to do something like that.

    I hope that you truly have a very memorable and fun vacation. I'm sure your family will love it!

    I had the pleasure of meeting a lovely young woman today when I brought my DS to "an office in RI". ;) When I went to pay her co-worker with my Disney Visa, the woman held it up to the lovely young woman, whose eyes lit up as only a Disney lover's eyes can at someone else's credit card. :laughing: Of course, we started a conversation, and she declared herself a Disney freak, as am I! One thing led to another, and she mentioned this thread, and I'm assuming she's one of the "kids" in the story!

    She also showed me her VERY COOL new Minnie on her ankle. :thumbsup2 ("Mom" knows about this, right? :scared1: )

    I read the first page or so...a wonderful story!...and found the place where lyinninpa explains she's Amy from RI (which was good, because I was getting :confused: ). Thanks Amy's DD, for pointing it out to me. And it was a pleasure meeting you! See you in 6 months. :laughing:

    Just finished reading this fun thread. A little disappointed that this didn't lead to a TR:worried: , but nonetheless really enjoyed the read. It was very nice to have some family members chime in. :love: the tat.

    A very :grouphug: :hug: :hug: family of nine. Thanks for sharing this story. As you can see, it has inspired many towards surprising others. Sharing the magic is a wonderful thing.

    thanks again

    Mary! As soon as I started reading your post I knew you were talking about my Gf Liz!!! She is always telling me when she meets "disney freaks" or when someone has a Disney credit card but she never told me she met someone from the dis!!! When she gets home from work im gonna have to talk to her about that one lol. Just for the record im Amys DS, Liz is my girlfriend :P. A couple days after she got her tattoo she bought me one for my b-day and I got Mickey on my wrist!! Take care!!!!

    I've been planning a Fortune Cookie surprise, but couldn't figure out what to say on the fortunes. I searched on here and found this. I am so excited and can't wait to reveal our surprise in October!!!!!

    Believe it or not, I'm just now seeing these posts! :eek: I didn't subscribe to threads back then, but I just came across a link to this thread that I posted on another board way back when. Love the fortune cookie tattoo! Not sure Liz still works at that office these days, or if you're both still together, but it was fun to see your posts, even if it is almost 4 years later!
