I don't think we look hungover- I felt fine, I drank a gallon of water before bed!!
Up to date on the pics now. You guys look great! (no hint of a hangover) and I Love the new dresses. Very pretty.

I have to stay that I am surprised the wine tasting was so inexpensive. Having never been to any F&W events, I figured everything extra was pricey. But that is one meager serving of wine. Howsabout a real glass of wine?

I am thinking of purchasing the canon rebel because I've read/heard a bunch of good things about it. I'm surprised the screen went black on you. I'm glad its OK.

F&W, A DISmeet and the Devil wears Sparkly Ears takes Pods to Club Cool!

The rain was pretty heavy for a bit, so we waited it out in the FC before going out to eat the world!!! Our first stop was Ireland for the Lobster & Scallop Fisherman's Pie-



Sorry, took a bite first, shame on me! This was delish- lots of seafood, and who doesn't love mashers? We shared a Guinness. And we had the great joy and pleasure of timing it all with an Off-Kilter performance. Who, when you've left your kids at home, you actually get to sit down and WATCH!!! They are AWESOME!!!!





Next was Greece, we had Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki and a white wine-(sorry i forget which one!)



I love that sauce, I could eat it on a tire and it would taste great! Also had Spanokopita, which was crunchy, flaky and yummy-



And right then, it started to POUR!!!! And so we huddled under the F&W retail kiosk along with a hundred other people- what a riot!! And DH started complaining about the rain- and I was like, you have GOT to be kidding! This is WDW!! Helloooooo??? I was just here for monsoon week of May '09 and THIS is NOTHING compared to THAT!!! Besides, now that I had my DVC extra special rain gear jacket, I was well protected from the deluge, so the rain is no problem, Mon!!

Soon it slowed to a drizzle, plus our wine and food ran out, so we braved the elements and headed to Brazil & Argentina to snarf down a Grilled pork Skewer , a grilled beef skewer with chimichurri (WOW), and a Leblon Frozen Caipirinha. All were delicious, but I have no pics because of the drizzle- sorry! Anyway, it was time for us to take a little stroll over to the front gates- because we were havin' a DISmeet!! Karajeboo & DD Ally were on their way via monorail from MK and would be arriving any second!!
A little backround- Kara is one of my DISmom pals....she is actually a woman who I invited to stay in our AKV concierge room last May, even though I had never met her before...well, except for here, on the DIS. Her husband Jeff is I think STILL convinced I am an ax murderer just waiting for the right moment to bring her to her unfortunate demise....well, we'll just have to see, because we're doing another DISmom trip this May, so there IS still a chance...MWA-AH-HA-HA!

Pods waits-


Ahem...anyway, I was really excited because today I'd be seeing not just Kara (who HAS to be one of the funniest people on any forum ANYWHERE) but also her darling daughter, Ally!!! I couldn't wait! After all, so far I had only ever met Ally-on-a-stick, and well, quite frankly, she's just so one dimensional. Although still entertaining! (If you haven't read the DISmom TR, you are probably thinking I'm crazy right about now, if so, I apologize).

Here they are, the Sparkly Girls at long last!!





This was the last thing these two were doing before heading home- so we were very honored we got to spend this time with them. Of course, Ally IS Kara's child, cute as can be, sweet as can be....with a bit of a devilish twist! We whisper to her that Pods has never been to Club Cool before...so guess who was leading the charge!

""Oh sure, Mr Pods, I just love this Beverly and so will YOU!"







Ohhhh...that was hilarious!! That little cutie was so SMOOTH!

Sadly, the laughter died a little too soon, because it was time for the Sparkly girls to hit the road-





Awww...don't be that sad! They were coming back the next weekend!! It was time for us to go too...to check-in at OKW. But would we ever find the car in the ginormous EPCOT lot????



You betcha, Baby!!!

Well, that's it for now, i think- we do LEAVE in the morning for vacation, and although I am packed, I still have three thousand details to address today. Please remember to say a prayer tonight before bed and again in the morning tomorrow that Sean comes with us!!! Because we really and truly won't know if he's going until he gets out of the van at the airport.....

Ellen

Thank-you- glad we don't look like crap!

I really like my rebel- I got the xsi because it had more mega-pixels and was faster- also offers more than the regular rebel to grow into. The screen went back because of all the humidity and temperature difference between our room (which we like c-c-c-c-cold) and outside. It all was fine, though!!

What a great final update before you leave on vacation. Please tell me that Sean goes with you! My fingers are crossed and my prayers have been said.

And that Ally.....so cute, yet so sly....Seriously, was that the first time pods ever drank the Beverly? Haha ....priceless.

Have a MOST EXCELLENT VACATION. Can't wait to read two TR's when you get home!

Hi! We are having a great time- Kidani is amazing- I wish we were here the whole week!!! Lots of animals outside our room, and the kids all just had fun at the pool. Now headed to the arcade then DHS and Boma for dinner.

And how 'bout them Yankees!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the prayers- we are so glad Sean is here and enjoying himself!!!
