2. I hang out over on the Beach Club thread. They had a meet sometime back and they had "flat place name here" attending. It was so cute and they looked like they had fun doing it! Brandi, take a great picture of yourself dressed for a Disney day where we would meet up at The Ditch. Blow it up large like two feet tall. Mail it to one of us. When we take pictures you will be there! We can even buy you a drink....umm we will probably be more than happy to drink it for you too!

What does everyone think? I would be happy to buy a round and put "flat Brandi" in a perfect place for a picture.

Tracy brought her flat DH Mark to a Give Kids The World Meet & Greet at an AKV Grand Villa last year!!! He had lots of fun (at least we think he did! )

Naturally I had not posted or subscribed to it It was a completed report and I have not been able to find it. If anyone knows the one I am talking about I would love a link. I didn't get past the first couple of items they sampled.

I will continue to try and find it.

Happy Wednesday to everyone!

Ann
I do recall seeing several reviews, but I never subscribed to any. I think I took lots of pictures of the offerings. I'll have to see if I can find them and post some here. I thought I'd be much more organized once I went from 35mm to digital. I'm still just as bad!!!

Cabana Bar and Beach Club samples:






The 2nd night was held indoors due to rain (and lots of it!) Equally enjoyable, indoors and out!

















Cabana's Crab Eggrolls:











These are all the photos I could find -- I was sure I took more than that, but maybe not! I'll have to do better this year! (Elin, I know you'll get some amazing photos )

Thanks for the photos, Laura. Got a few butterflies in my tummy thinking about being there in about 164 days!

Out of curiosity, how dressed up do people get for this? When we do Party for the Senses we usually get gussied up a bit.

And you know me well, my friend... if there is food and/or drink involved I will be taking pictures!

I also like the idea of Flat Brandi! A good sized head shot of you and David could be attached to a paint stirrer or ruler for easy placement in any photo op!

Elin, I would say most guests dressed in "resort casual". How you would dress for PFTS would be appropriate here too, depending on the weather of course. We will be indoors for the 1-hour seminar at Swan, then out on the Causeway (between the 2 resorts) from 5:30 till 9.

I am so looking forward to it, but there will be a sadness too -- it will mean another F&W trip is coming to an end. (I guess we won't stay sad for too long though - that *Drink to the End of the World* trip will be just around the corner!!! )


Flat Brandi & David -- I love it!! We've got to do it! JD works for Sherwin-Williams so we have plenty of paint stirrers here ()!! All we need is for Miss Brandi to send us the head shot! (What do you say Brandi? )

I'm sure there's something out there that will do the job! Let us know.

I need to figure out how to print your picture. My printer is a dinosaur -- black-ink-only HP Officejet 330! (There are very few places that still stock the refill cartridge!) I believe JD's printer can print the photo. Otherwise, I may need to come up with Plan B!!
