    Awww, I'm glad you get warm fuzzies from my TR title! :goodvibes

    I'm itching to write more even though I said I was going to take this slow. I know it's because I am on vacation and a little on the bored side. :lmao:

    It was a really big step and I had some moments on the trip where I didn't think it was a good idea but after the entire trip I am really glad that I did it. :goodvibes

    I totally cried at the airport, I felt like such a fool but that I guess that is just who I am.

    Stay tuned on the pins, I have a funny story to tell you later on in the day.

    You might be lucky and get another update today. So far Marc and I have been doing the, "I don't know what do you want to do" game all morning. :lmao:

    I really liked the Celebrate Decorations. I love the happy Mickey Ear balloons all over the place, they just make you smile.

    Thanks for joining in! It is challenging with the rain but I really did try to make the best out of it.

    Absence does make the heart grow fonder, I am firm believer of that.
    It was so exciting meeting Jen!

    There are lots and lots of happy moments to report. :thumbsup2

    Thanks! I still need to catch up on your report!

    WOOT! :lmao: It was hard being away from Marc, I realized what a rock he is for me but I did have fun. It was just a different kind of trip but that doesn't mean it was bad at all!

    I love the way I setup my smugmug account. So much easier to sort the pictures by day!

    Thanks. I'm a wimp too. I cry at the silliest things. You know what really gets me...those hallmark commercials during the hallmark movies. Even though I have seen most of them for years and years, I still cry!

    I agree about Southwest, it's just a great airline. And funny too! I forgot to say how one of the flight attendants was pretending to be a galloping horse as we landed. HEEEEEEE-LARIOUS!

    I never thought to bring a DVD player either but I did really enjoy having it on the way down. Especially since I was able to drool over Edward Cullen for two hours. :lmao:

    The lady met me right at the part where you go into line for the ME Desk and pointed me right to the bus line, so I am sure you won't have to stress over it too much.

    The kid who tripped was just fine. I wasn't trying to race him, really. He was making it a competition. Then he tried to get in line with all of his luggage and the CM did not like that at all. :lmao:
    Well put, MeMom. There was a bit of the magic missing but I am glad that I did do this trip.

    I have not caught up on sleep yet. I am not completely detoxed yet either. I did find myself yesterday playing the, a week ago I was in DHS game. :rotfl2:

    I sometimes get a little teary when I say goodbye to my parents when they are leaving on vacation. :lmao:

    Marc does that too! Starts watching me instead of the movie when he thinks I am going to cry.

    Oh, MEK. I am not going to give away information like that! You have to wait until the next update. :laughing:

    Exactly. I was going to Disney so it wasn't all sad!

    It was my first time flying by myself so it was a little scary!

    Hehehe. Thanks, Katie. I've had a blast meeting two of the gnomies so far!

    The adventures are quite fun! I can't wait to write some more.

    Goodbyes do stink! That would be a really cool job!

    :lmao: You are not a weirdo!! It was very surreal seeing her for the first time.

    I might just do an update later today, we'll see. Depends on if we decide to do anything or not.

    I do have the best husband, he's so good to me.

    We did have an amazing time despite the rain!

    I got so excited thinking about leaving for the airport and checking into my SW flight in Sept!! And even for next month- we're flying w/them to Florida.

    Can't wait for the next one! popcorn::

    You are off to a great start! :thumbsup2 We took our DVD player on our last trip and I was so glad that we had it on the plane. It made the time go by really fast. I am sorry about your pins though!

    It was so awesome that the timing worked our perfectly. I was so excited to meet her!

    I really do have a prince of a husband, he's the best.

    It does make the time go by really fast. I was a little bummed about the pins but have a funny story about losing them later on in the first day.

    Friday May 22nd - Day 1. Part 2.

    Finally, the ME bus was pulling into All Star Music and I could see Jen waiting for me in the parking lot. It was really weird finally seeing her in person, I had to remind myself even though we have been talking online for months and on the phone that I hadn't actually met her yet. It truly felt like I was meeting a longtime friend for a trip and not a "stranger".

    I made my way off of the bus and patiently waited for my carry-on luggage. Jen was walking towards me and I'm pretty sure I waved to her like a dork. I got my luggage and headed over to her. It was not awkward at all! It was so easy and we fell into a comfortable pattern with each other. At least I did, maybe Jen thought I was a giant weirdo but I was comfortable from the start.

    Jen had already checked us in and our room was ready. Originally when I booked this trip, I had requested the Broadway Section because if you can remember from 1,000's of trip changes, Marc & I were going to drive down. We had thought the Broadway section would be nice and close to the parking lot since we'd drive to the parks. Jen & I had agreed that we would take any room available that was ready. At first she was assigned a room in the Country Fair section but she decided to ask about Broadway and there was a room! Yay!

    We hopped into Jen's car and drove to the Broadway section. We were in Building 8, Room 8061 on the third floor. I do have the room number, right Jen? :laughing: We had a corner room which I liked a lot since we only had one shared wall. I was a little concerned for when Jen left with her car because it was a L O N G haul to the Main Hall of ASMu and the bus stops but that was a few days away.

    We were greeted by a Mickey Head towel and by a little tweet tweet bird.

    I liked the room, it was very clean. The set up was very similar to Pop Century but I was struck that the room seemed a lot smaller than the room we had at Pop in September.

    I took the bed closer to the door and window because it was closer to the AC Unit. :rotfl: This New Englander is not used to the Florida heat like Jen!

    I find these next two pictures amusing. The first one is Jen's, the second one mine...we even take similar pictures! :rotfl2:

    You can see from that picture that it was wet out, but I don't think it had rained on us at this point.

    I spent a lot of time pondering the bathroom wallpaper. It was like they tried to make the people in it look like famous singers...ala Elvis, Frank Sinatra, etc...but not completely like them. It seriously provided lots of time of pondering for me. There was a definitely a Buddy Holly thrown in there too but I don't think he made it in this picture. I kept meaning to take more pictures of it but never did.

    I think it's a beauty!

    A truly horrible picture of the neat-o coat rack. I loved this rack, it was very convenient. Jen and I both agreed though that the red just didn't go with the overly blue motif of the room.

    I have shown you the room pictures in the order that I took them, you can tell that I was bouncing all over the place. I guess I was excited to check out the different aspects of the room. :rolleyes:

    We didn't stay in the room too long, Jen changed into her matching Fairy T-Shirt. I was already wearing mine. It was time to head out to our first park and our lunch ADR at.....

    I love the colors in the room. DS really wants to try this resort because he likes the looks of the pool. I may have to give in. Thanks for the update, I can sleep tonight now!

    Yeay! I am so glad that you and Jen were instantly comfortable with each other -- which I knew you would be!!!

    The room and outside decor are neat! I wish I had a Mickey coat rack at home! However, I would not want all those eyes on me while I was in the bathroom! :eek: :lmao:

    One light fixture -- how many more to go? ;)

    Ooooh! I like the Broadway section of ASMusic! That room looks really cute and I love the theatre-like billboards outside the window! That is cool! I stayed there once with my mum when I was 14, but we were in the Calypso section and I never really checked out the others...I like the little coat-hook too but you're right, the red doesn't really match!

    Looking forward to hearing about your Epcot lunch! :)

    What a cliffhanger! I can't wait to hear about your lunch. And your waiter. ;)

    I can't say I'm a fan of that bathroom wallpaper. Very busy... it almost gives me a headache.

    But overall All Stars looks neat. I've never been there!

    More, please. popcorn::
