Yeah!! The trip report has started!

I can imaine how hard it must have been to set off that morning saying goodbye to Marc. At least you were leaving for Disney, right?

Totally makes sense!

Great start so far! Glad the flight went well, I don't like flying by myself either!

OK, your first update made me cry...at what? Not you crying on the way to the airport. not you crying at your quick goodbye to Marc. Not you crying when Marc sent you a sweet text.
















I cried at the image in my mind of you pulling up in ME and seeing Jen waiting for you! That is soooooo exiciting!!!!! Lucky you LL have been a part of both of the gnomie meets so far!

Great beginning! What a sweet story...I bet it was hard leaving your DH at the airport. Goodbyes stink. Great pics of DTD! My kids love the legos statues, and my DS wants to know how he can get THAT job!

for leaving Marc at the airport. I know what that feels like and its not fun!

I seriously got goosebumps when you saw Jen across the parking lot. I'm a weirdo.

I have been meaning to tell you that I SO love your TR title....Megan and I love that movie, and LOVE that part exactly!!! Whenever we have a rainy day here, we have this cute little banter back and forth between us reciting the words of that part of the movie....."Tut, tut.....looks like rain!!!" SO everytime I see your TR title, I get this warm fuzzy in my heart thinking about that....just wanted to share!!!!

I have a quick question about ASMu that I am going to PM you!
Awww, I'm glad you get warm fuzzies from my TR title!

I bet it was hard to leave Marc! Mike travels often for work so I'm used to him being gone, but one time I volunteered as a camp councelor for a week and I had to leave. I was a mess being away. It's so much easier for him to leave!!
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.

I am impressed - I'm not sure I could have gone on my own like that. I know you had company for most of it, but it's still a big step. I just wish you'd had better weather!

Can't wait for more!
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.

AGGGHH! That stinks that you lost some of your pins!

Um, Jen, you took all those pics of the inside of Goofy's, but no pictures of the pretzel rods that you made???

And then, when I thought I was all finished tearing up, I teared up again as you spotted Jen in the parking lot!

Okay, I am ready for the next part.
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.

I cannot wait to see the Celebrate decorations, the sign from DTD has me super excited.

Love Goofy's-can almost taste the pretzel rods, is it wrong that I am not going until August and I already know what I will order on them.
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.

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

I'm sorry to hear about all the rain. One of my Disney trips was like that and it was definitely challenging!

Great start! I can't wait for more...
Thanks for joining in! It is challenging with the rain but I really did try to make the best out of it.

Yay, you're finally meeting Jen!! Can't wait to hear more!!!
Absence does make the heart grow fonder, I am firm believer of that.
It was so exciting meeting Jen!

LL...what a great update! THis being one of the first times you would be away from Marc for such a long time I know was very hard for you, but I know you made the most of it and as many have said absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Well woman you have inspired me...I am not going to let you get this TR done before mine so I'm going to update tomorrow while I have nothing to do all day WOOT!! So I'm off to upload pictures to my photobucket...although I really like your setup...maybe I should use that instead LOL!
WOOT! 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!

Paula
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!

Weird on ME. I always have to go to the desk too. Hmmm... maybe they were expediting b/c it was a holiday week? Oh dear, now I don't know what to do when I get there. This is the kind of stuff I stress about.

Oh and at the image of you racing the Dad w/ four suitcases and then surging ahead when his kid trips! For the record hope the kid is ok.

Jen- you got some lovely shots of Downtown Disney! By any chance do you check out the Tren-D store?

Ok I could totally hear the swelling music in my head as the ME bus pulls up and LL sees Jen for the first time.

More, please!!
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.

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.

The Goofy's Candy Company pictures are good. Pretzel rods are the perfect mix of salty and sweet. Jill said we're going to spend more time in there creating yummy concoctions this time.

Have you caught up on sleep, and are you fully detoxed back into the real world now? It usually takes several days. I'm always doing the 'This time last week, we were....' thing until the last second, and then I truly feel like I'm back in the real world when my week is up and I can no longer play that game.

Of course, I then start looking ahead to the next trip and playing 'Six months from no, we'll be.....'.
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.

Can't wait for more!
I sometimes get a little teary when I say goodbye to my parents when they are leaving on vacation.

Jen, great pics of a virtually empty Goofy's. I can't wait to make some treats there. Yummy!
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.

Love the update- can't wait to read about your first meet w/Jen! I got a big grin on my face to picture her waiting there for you!!!

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!

You are off to a great start! 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!
