Target had some cute PJs for the tween girls and adults on clearance last night when I was there!!! I was there stocking up on household items (I Love those Sales) a sick addiction I have...anyway, a few cruise items ended up in my cart and low and behold $300 later I was leaving Target!

We now have enough toothpaste, toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing tablets etc for a year.

We really should be miles people, but we just fly whatever is cheapest, and htat's usually Southwest for us.

Companies will search forums for their names and check whats being said against employee manifests. If you are caught saying something slanderish, you are dismissed on the spot.

Also I was just sick of going out with certain friends or sitting at work and having friends say did you see what so and so said on FB? I'm like is that all you have to talk about?!

And there was one women who I used to work with who was on maternity leave - when she had her baby, she was updating her status 10 - 15 times a day. Constantly writing on mutual friends walls, playing the games, inviting people to tak quizzes. People were saying at work that when she came back it wouldn't be the baby she missed, it would be FB! She kept saying oh (baby's name) has just smiled! When I saw them, I just kept thinking why don't you spend time with the baby and take photos of that instead of sitting on a computer/phone etc telling the world?

Sorry to go on and on there, it just drives me nuts! as you have probably figured out!
Wow!

We've never been to Florida or WDW, it's just too expensive for us. If we want to cruise DCL, and we do, we need to find the cheapest way to do it

I just looked at the OGT rates, they are about $300 less than we're paying for an inside when taking into account our OBB OBC and 10% discount. I'd rather have the window and cheaper rate, but we'd also have to cancel our airfare booked through DCL, and they aren't offering it from our area anymore, and we'd lose our deposit, so it would end up being more.

But I do wish they'd just drop the rate and refund us

Guess I have to either 1) stop reading posts from my phone app or 2) Start wearing my granny glasses so I can see what I'm reading!
I get confused all the time. Especially when I have to read 5 pages to get caught up.

That would be so much fun.

Are you taking bets on it

We haven't had the "cute shoe" discussion on this EBTA thread like we had on our WBTA thread, Noel! What was the record number of pairs shoes someone brought on WBTA, like 13 or 15?

We are going to try to get by with 2-3 pairs of shoes each and one checked bag each.

Still super happy you two are onboard again! I still have my pink boa to buy!!

Just celebrating having the same first name he said, Of course could have been that it was a hot day and the beer was ice cold.
Awesome!! That is such a cool story on meeting Jimmy.

My dream concert to attend would be one on my beloved St John. He has done a private concert at the Westin there before (a company retreat had rented out the resort) but from what people said, lots of people arrived in dinghies in the bay to listen. Ahhhh, I could only imagine.

Have you ever been to one of his concerts in Vegas? It's like the entire strip is wearing coconut bras and grass skirts.

Hubby has already traded off the day we think he might be having a concert near us this spring (just in case.... going off the rumors) Amazed he got a weekend day traded off so quickly. I think he just knew I would go either way with or without him

I have plans to hit Target later today to pick up a few things. I'm sure my final bill will be similar. I also make a point to always pick up a $50 Disney gift card to apply to my on board account using my Target Red Debit card I get 5% off.

Personally I love to travel to new places, so much stuff to photograph and see

Ditto, we have enjoyed looking through your beautiful pics - you have a real talent!
Never to early to start that LOL but nah the brand of the camera is unimportant, the best camera you have is the one that you have with you.

It's just matter of using what you have and knowing the limitations. It's what you have between the ears that counts not the camera. But of course a good camera can help in poor conditions.

Thank you for the kind words on my photography. I enjoy it a lot, to go out and make pictures.

The worldwide photo walks are fun, to know that at the same day there are 10'ths of thousands of photographers out capturing great photos.

I'm a big fan of Scott Kelby. If he not checked out Kelbytraining.com he should (I got some 24hrs free passes to the site if he or anyone else is interested, there are loads of great video courses up there by some awesome photographers like Lindsey Adler, Mooose Petersen, Peter Hurley, Rick Sammon, Tim Wallace and of course Scott himself to just mention some of the many instructors they have. Not all courses are about taking photos but also courses in how to use Photoshop (by for example Lesa Snider, love that gal) and Lightroom.

So a photowalk on the ship would be something I'm up to and if needed I'm willing to be the "walk leader".

We are not sure what to do now - we would obviously lose our deposit but still get £200 back. Or pay an extra £220 for a ocean view - but not sure if that's worth it? Hmmmmm need to get thinking

We loved going away before but since getting a SLR, we love it even more so. Get a real buzz going to new places and photographing them

We're going to cancel our 11C GTY and rebook the OGT rate. I think the £220 extra for a window is still worth it - it's not like we had a particular room # anyway. For a shorter cruise it might not be worth it, but for 14 nights, it definitely is (to us anyway)
