    I'm here, can't believe this is on page 3 already! :scared1: Great start, I love all of your Jasmine stuff! :lovestruc I also love the dining review system, and how you're going to breakdown all of the cupcakes...this TR is going to be intense! :banana:

    Love the music selection.
    So 2000 was middle school for you huh? Sigh... I am such an old lady... Which I new at the point that I had a former student as a teaching intern, while she was getting her Masters, five years ago... sigh...

    Excellent start to the trip. Love that the food pictures started with your bowl of Trix .... But what about a food rating :-)

    Can't wait for the next update!

    I'm usually a lurker on these things, but I just had to join in. I didn't catch onto your last one til near the end, but just loved it. You and John are just too cute. I'm also planning a cupcake crawl for my trip in Sept, so I'm really excited to see what you tried and how you liked them:thumbsup2

    Yay you're on your way!! I love this whole sountrack idea, by the way. It's sheer genius.

    I love your outlet shirt! And your pins! And your Jasmine merch! And the Castle blanket...okay I love it all. Probably should have just said that instead of rambling and using excessive exclamatory punctuation...ah well. :rolleyes1:

    I have that milk. Organic food junkies! :thumbsup2

    Your dogs are SO CUTE. I work at a Kennel, so I'm a huge dog lover!

    Talk about a catchy song and title for this trip! I swear that song is going to be stuck in my head for the next week. CURSE YOU, JONI! ;) And what is the movie with Mr. Johnny Depp playing in the background? I feel as if I've never seen it.

    Because it's later, PARTY FOR PROCRASTINATION! party: I think it's pretty funny how an English High School Teacher is a procrastinator (ironic?), if only I had more teachers like you.

    Love your trip journal and matching pen! Also, I totally think we should pin trade someday because... well... I have pins, you have really cool pins, you give me one of your really cool pins and I give you one of mine. Everyone's happy! :teeth:

    So glad to hear you enjoyed The Help, one of my favorite books (I actually read it for English class, which I kept a solid A in throughout the year, which I told you just because...) and I finally got to watch the movie a few weeks ago, just as AMAZING! Especially when they shove in Emma Stone to play Skeeter :goodvibes But I gotta say, Viola Davis should've won the Academy Award for Best Actress over Meryl Streep (I swear, she owned that movie!) Sorry, rant over. But I swear, more scandalous than all these crazy gossip about Emily Maynard (total crap IMO).

    Anyways, your dogs are so adorable! Puppy dog eyes plus Disney blanket... oh, I need to look away (Animal Love :lovestruck:) ! :cloud9: Oh and yeah, silly Joni, Trix are for kids! (see what I did there?) I'm feeling very nostalgic today.

    Yay for being on the road! I think it's so sweet your mom called you because she was nervous about how getting to Disney would be. First Timers, so precious (Ugh, now you've got me saying it! (; ) :thumbsup2 to listening to Linkin Park in the car! I had a small little obsession with them last year and their song, Shadow of the Day still remains to be one of my favorites, but Hybrid Theory, great album right there.

    Can't wait to read about the rest of your drive down to the World! :mickeyjum

    I'm so excited!!!! Your back and your writing... Yes, It's a fabulous day!!!
    I love your music idea... That's going to be some much fun. I love music it makes everything better.

    I'm going to Raleigh/Durham, NC the 24th of August to visit my cousin, it's her 50th Birthday party. I'm so excited... I've never been, :banana: It's for a long weekend plus we're going to spend a couple of days in Wilmington too. Really I think somewhere on the beach in Wilmington. :confused3 I'm just along for the ride... But I can't wait...

    Our favorite place to stay in Disney is Beach Club and Yacht Club. :love: We love the convience of walking to Epcot or DHS... Plus the whole resort is just fabulous!!! We have also found that staying 10 days is a must... (even though it doesn't happen everytime) Then you get to spend lots of time just enjoying everything and not having to hurry through it all.

    Thank you so much for sharing your trip report...

    I finally finished mine that I took with my 18 year old daughter and my neice during spring break. We had lots of fun.

    Looking forward for lots more updates..

    Count me in! This trip report (especially the restaurant rating themed to "Ratatouille") seems pretty interesting.

    I rushed over here and you're already up to 4 pages!

    Sounds like a good start! I'm not liking the foreboding about bad driving- but I am guessing since this was the best trip ever it can't be that bad!

    New trip report! I follow all of your trip reports. Kudos to your husband who makes me feel better because I know I'm not the only "manly" man who loves Disney. haha Thank goodness my entire family feel the same way, so it's all good.:cool2:

    Woohooo you've started! I can't wait to hear all the stories from your latest Disney adventure. :yay:

    I LOVE the rating systems. Oh I can already feel the hunger pangs coming on.

    Girl, let me tell you something you got so lucky to find a guy who not only constantly wants to go to Disney but buys you princess notebooks and other fabulous Disney items. That is basically my dream. I can't with guys that don't get my Disney obsession.

    KSJDLKSDJLSD AWW THE PUPPY DOG EYES! It's so hard to leave them!

    I have been trying to give up soda... both diet and regular... it is NOT EASY. And by that I mean impossible. I just love it too much.

    HAHA oh man Linkin Park absolutely reminds me of 6th grade dances. That is too funny.

    Can't wait for more!

    I looove your reports! I think I may have commented on one like years ago...(probably not years...more like months, but you get the picture!) I just wanted to come out of lurker status and say hi!! I'm joining in on your new TR, and am LOVING it so far!!
    Your dog is sooo cute! She doesn't look spoiled at all! hahaha
    I love your idea with the food reviews, and I can't wait to read about your cupcakes!! I LOVE cupcakes!!
    Your mom is cute!! I can't wait to read about your time with her! That is such a special time I know she will never forget!!
    I would love to take my mom to Disney, too! I never got to go to Disney as a kid, either, but I'm obsessed now, like you are! haha
    I like your $1.99 shirt! Very nice!:thumbsup2
    I can't wait to read more!

    I am in and so stoked to read more!!! I saw on twitter you started this and it made me happy:cool1:

    I hope you have recovered from your lack of rest. That is a loooong time to stay at Disney. The max I could ever do is 7 nights and even that was pushing it.

    I am editing this because I just read more and have more to say.

    I LOOOVE your pups!! What breed are they? I have a cockapoo and they look very similar (look in PTR listed on the bottom and there is a pic of her).

    LOL about the Diet DP. I love diet pop as well, even though I know I shouldn't drink it and just drink water.

    I have been waiting for you to start this one. I have loved all your other ones and this one will help me get more excited for my trip. :cool1:

    My cats do the same thing your dogs do right before I leave. Makes me feel bad too, but knowing your leaving for Disney definitely helps. Can't wait to read more. popcorn::
