Although, one of my coworkers DID say when I mentioned Disney "You HAVE to stay on site or the trip isn't worth it!" So she MIGHT be a confidant!
Oh yes... a new best friend!!!

So an "OH MY GOSH, MY LIFE IS CRAZY!!" update! haha…

I don't think I ever shared on here, but we did get Cortlyn a Merida dress from Target!! She LOVES it!



Did I mention my awesome backpack score from earlier this summer? Quick recap incase I didn't! I scored a backpack for $1.50 that had Minnie Mouse on it as well as a "Walt Disney World" tag. Came home and googled and sure enough, it is a bag that is sold AT WDW for $40! Not a great shot of it, but you get the idea:


Can you see the tag on the right? On the other side of the "Minnie" it has the WDW logo!


We went to the County Fair today! Jenn, I thought of you! They had a tractor pull earlier this week!! I had a minor medical emergency… I think I didn't drink enough fluids for the heat and I passed out. Luckily there were EMT's close by, and everything checked out, but I have a few pictures before I brought the day to an end!


Catie LOVED the Carousel!!


Cortlyn loved this bouncy/slide!


They had a fake Dumbo- and Cortlyn didn't even want to ride it because it was NOT Dumbo! And not-Dumbo was SUPER HOT! I had to sit Catie on my lap, because it was almost too hot for ME to sit in!



So, this was a nice little trial run of the rides with Catie. She loved them, so we should be alllll good for November!

Great scores. The dress is so cute. And wow, has Cortlyn's hair gotten so long.

That backpack is a g reat deal....where did you find it at. I love finding stuff like that...make up for all the times I over pay for stuff.

It always seems like county fairs and tractor pulling go hand in hand. I hate when a pull is at a fair because Claire then wants to go ride the rides and play...I dopn't want to spend that money on crap. Once a year at our fair is fine, but every couple of weeks gets old.
I love that they had a fake dumbo though.

Well, you know… when the ONLY place that can cut your hair is Disney, hair is bound to get really long! I actually need to think about making a ressie for that shop!

We have a second hand store called Once Upon a Child. It's a chain, so you may have one near you. They don't pay much to take stuff, but you can get GREAT deals!

Oh my goodness... Cortlyn is adorable... She is just the perfect age for Princess!!!

I so wish that when Rae was 5 and 6 and 7 and on and on... I would have taken her to Disney!!!! The first time I took her she was 12... So the Princess dressing up was long gone... But the good thing is that she still hasn't out grown Princess and she loves everything Disney!!!!

Cortlyn is going to have a blast... I can't wait for your TRIP REPORT... Looks like the trip to County Fair was lots of fun... Looks like they loved the rides...

I love Cortlyn's Minnie Back Pack... So cute.. What a fabulous model....

Carolyn

I'm glad that I am taking the girls young. A lot of friends say they want to wait until their kids can remember, but I think that just loses some of the magic. Cortlyn LIVES for Princess dresses. Although, she's not very impressed with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge. She wears too many pants for Cortlyn's liking!

She does look really cute! I can't wait to see what dresses she picks to take to WDW in a few months. I'm going to have to limit her!!

Cortlyn was having NONE of that fake stuff! she was okay with things that are more generic, but that Fake Dumbo was it for her!!

Just FYI… THIS week marks the double digits… I can't wait to do my double digit dance!!!!!

I talked to Cortlyn, and she wants to have her hair cut while we are there again. I think I'll let them cut a good bit off this time. I go back and forth with Catie, but I think I'm going to wait to have her's cut. It's just so short and if they messed it up at all, I'd never forgive them. If she is anything like Cortlyn, she will have a head FULL of hair by 2.5, so it won't be too big of a deal to put it her first hair cut for a while.

I've also decided that on thanksgiving, we may do an Ice Cream for Dinner night! I know the girls would love that! I want to go to the Boardwalk area and hang out, so I'm thinking we'll go do that and head to Beaches and Cream for "dinner." Of course, that all depends on how well they eat their veggies at Whispering Canyon!

Any more rumors on BOG?? I'd like to get a dinner ressie there on Wednesday, but I would be willing to skip/move The Plaza on Monday. I have been reading that it's going to be 2 QS and 2 TS. Depending on that, we may just pay out of pocket and Corey and I will split something and I'll have the girls share something as well. I can only imagine that lunch here will be REALLY crowded during that time, since it will be so new, so I don't think I'll risk doing a lunch there. Plus… using TWO quick service credits?!?! What is that about?!?!!?

No recent BOG rumors. Supposedly they will open for ADRs 8/28 but nobody knows for what dates. And I think the 2 credit thing was proven wrong.

Congrats on the double digit dance!

First woo hoo on the double digit dance!!!

and yeah, I think that 2 credit non-sense was a rumor started by that one FB page. They posted that BOG would be 2 credits the same day that Le Cellier was confirmed to be 2 credits for lunch. I think there was a miscommunication.
But I do think that come August 28th, the ADR will be open, whether or not that will include Thanksgiving week is up in the air, but I would guess yes.

And of course you need to get Cort's hair cut! That's the only place she gets her hair cut!

Oh and Beaches n cream for dinner... yum!

Well GOOD! I still doubt we'd try to do lunch, but knowing it wouldn't be 2 credits is crazy for a QS!!
