    Hey There!

    I'm back with another Pre-Trip Report. :banana:

    How This Trip Came to Be:

    My last two trips I was planning were postponed. The first one was going to be in September 2009, I wasn't able to go because I had gastric banding surgery at the end of August. Then Jen & I were planning a make up trip for January 2010 and money issues just got into the way and I had to cancel. It really broke my heart, especially since I had to cancel on Jen. Well...turns out that we came into some unexpected money and I can swing a shorter trip then originally planned in January. Bad news? Jen & I had already canceled everything and she won't be able to join me. :guilty: I totally understand though, I'd just like to see her again!

    The Dates:

    Saturday January 16th - Tuesday January 19th. Much, much shorter than I had originally planned with Jen but I'm just happy to be getting to Disney at all.

    The Resort:

    Pop Century. This breaks my heart just a teeny bit. I was really excited about staying at POFQ with Jen but that is not in the cards for this shorter, cheaper trip.

    The Cast:

    Me, Leslie or LL on the DIS. I'm 27, originally from Maine but have been living in Massachusetts for the last three years. I'm married to a wonderful man, Marc. I'm obsessed with planning Disney trips and on any given day have at least three future trip ideas running around in my brain.


    This was taken tonight after I had my haircut. :laughing:


    Marc & I, a few weeks ago.

    And that's it...

    or is it?


    JEN! :yay:

    Yep! When I told Jen I could swing a January trip afterall, she decided that she would not be joining me since she had canceled her time off request and since we were planning on going in October together, she was just going to focus on that.

    Until her husband, Phillip, pointed out that with my shorter trip she already had that Monday & Tuesday off and that she should just go with me! THANK YOU PHILLIP!

    When Jen told me that, I had tears in my eyes. I am so happy that she can join me and that I can see her again. :hug:


    Jen in September.


    Jen & I in May 2009.

    You people play with my mind too much!

    We're on.
    We're off.
    We're here.
    We're there.

    Do you not realize I have my own head games to take care of???

    The Disney Devil and Dave Ramsey have each chosen a shoulder to sit on and jump and down on about my slightly possible March trip with a friend.

    You can swing it.
    No you can't.
    Just two nights.
    Two nights will turn into four.
    You'll probably get a code.
    Flights are expensive.
    Maybe they'll go down.

    They're driving me nuts, :eek:
    so how am I supposed to handle your ups and downs and ons and offs, too, girl???


    I'm in. :cool1: :cheer2:
    And Page 1, at that!

    And how nice of me to let you stay at my Pop, too, right? :dance3:
    You forgot that part. :)

    LL!!! and Jen!!! That is just soooo cool that you get to go together after all!!! I am just so happy for you what great fun and luck!!!!

    :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes

    LL, your hair style looks extremely flattering! Did you straighten it? Did your hair dresser do that? the layers, etc. enhance your face, looks great. I am really impressed the difference is dramatic! Your weightloss is apparent! All in all it will come with time, and that is awesome that you are making such progress! The hair style really makes it noticeable...I have naturally curly hair, and I straighten mine no problem... That style looks so different on you, really stylish and you look very pretty! :hug:

    I am so excited to hear all about your plans!!!!!! :yay:

    Hey LL! What fantastic news! I'm glad you hear that Jen will be joining you after all. :thumbsup2 When I saw the title I was wondering if Jen would somehow come along. Sounds like you two are having fun already planning this all out. Looking forward to itinerary 1.0.

    Thanks! I can really notice the weight loss now, even from pictures that were taken in October. :thumbsup2

    Oh, I am still thanking Prince P! I was so thrilled when you said you would be able to join me! :banana: The sad thing is that I didn't even remember that you had those days off either. :laughing:



    Thanks! It's not looking as cute today but isn't that always the way? :rotfl2:

    Thanks for joining in!

    Thanks CP. I'm thrilled with the way my haircut came out yesterday.

    We truly are looking fabulous! :thumbsup2

    Thanks, I'm so happy that I can make this trip work out.

    Thank you! I think we are both feeling really good.

    Oh, you crack me up MeMom! That is how I feel and it's all floating around my head. :rotfl2:

    I wouldn't be sad if you kicked us out of your Pop and we had to stay at Port Orleans....:rolleyes1 :rotfl:

    Thank you so much! Yes, the hair stylist straightened it yesterday after my cut. Today I let it curl again just to see how it'd look but I'm liking the straighter hairdo. The hairdresser actually told me I had beautiful hair yesterday, NO hairdresser has ever said that to me they usually just tell me how crappy my hair is. :rotfl2:

    Oh yes, we are having lots of fun!

    Prince P is a Prince for sure! This will be such a sweet trip no matter how short!

    Thank you! I'm feeling fantastic!
