Just a small update for today,

We have decided that one day in Disney we are all going to wear Boston Celtics shirts. So sometime between now and then I need to get myself a celtics shirt!

I also have to add that Kaden has requested to ride the Tomorrowland Indy Speedway. He had a license from last year that we lost and we really wants to get a new one!

Also we have decided that the rope drop that we want to make is going to be at Magic Kingdom. We have heard so many good things about it and have decided that this is the one we would really like to see!

I'm going to try to get back later today with some more info about each cast member and what we like about each park!

New and Improved ADRs

So I am back with an update! We changed around our ADRs! This is what we had originally scheduled;
Monday The Royal Table for 7:05pm.
Tuesday Crystal Palace at 6:15pm.
Wednesday we have a breakfast ADR for The Tusker House at 9:25am.
Friday Chef Mickeyís at 8:25am.

So our new and improved ADR schedule is as follows;

Monday- Mama Melrose in DHS at 3:45pm. This ADR also came with a pass to Fantasmic at 7pm. So now when we book our flights we are going to try to book early so that we can go to MK in the morning and then DHS in the afternoon but we still donít know for sure. We DO know that DHS has EMH this night so we are set for that!

Tuesday we have an ADR for Crystal Palace at 6:15pm. This one did not change.

Wednesday we have an ADR for Cinderellaís Royal Table at 8:25am!!!!!! Yes we are going to be able to go into MK before it opens! I am SO SO SO excited for this one! I canít wait to get my unobstructed picture of the castle!

Thursday we have an ADR for the Tusker house at 9:15am.

Friday we have Chef Mickeyís at 8:25am. This one is the other that didnít change.

So as you can see we now have 5 ADRs, one for each day of the week. We added in Mama Melrose and switched around some of the other ones that we had! Getting so excited for this trip! Really wishing it wasnít 129 days away!

THose sound like great ADR changes! I just love going into MK when it's empty - they always have the PHotopass photographers on main street before they open, so if you are doing Photopass, don't forget to have a picture taken with out the crowds.

Love your ADR changes! I've not tried some of them, so excited to hear about them (after you experience them, of course!)!

However, I will state, based on your ADRs -- there's a possibility we'll bump shoulders at least once. I do have a couple of similar ADRs, but I checked, we won't be dining near each other at them. They're either for different meals or days (or different meals on different days).

I have never been in the park before it opens. So I'll have to live vicariously through all those who do get those picture-perfect shots! (We're not big breakfast people -- especially DH.)

Exciting News!

I have exciting news!!

But first let me explain my weekend to you all. Friday night I had taken off work and I ran some errands then dismissed two of my cheerleaders from school and we were off to the hotel. The competition was two hours away so we stayed both Friday and Saturday. Friday night we all went out to dinner at Chillis. Imagine the look on their faces when we walked in on a packed Friday night and said “Party of 17 please!” But we all split up and got 4 different tables.

Saturday was the competition. It was a LONG day. We checked in at 1130am, preformed at about 3pm, and awards were at 10pm. We were the second to perform of 80 and we had to wait all day!! But finally awards came around. They got to our category, and announced our rival as Second place! We got so excited and all held hands! And first place goes to…………………………….




















Another team. My girls were so bummed. Some cried. I was heartbroken and couldn’t figure out what happened. Turns out something we did was considered illegal and it cost us 5 points. We then stayed at the hotel that night and I got a wonderful gift from my girls. They gave me a personal notepad, my favorite candy, gift cards to American Eagle and iTunes. It was thoughtful and so cute.





SO I bet your wondering why the title is “Exciting News” huh. Well, they have these things called “bids” and we got one! Basically what that means is that our team did well enough for the judges to notice us and feel that we were good enough to move on even though we didn’t place!! So after all that we are moving on afterall!! Our next competition is November 19th and if we win there, we go to Disney! So we are still in the running!!

Please keep the thoughts coming we could use all the good vibes we can get! And as always I will keep you all updated!
