It feels that way!!

I was really disappointed it was on a Saturday, but now I have 17 hours, so I'm almost done!

TSO was awesome! I went with Charles, Kailyn, and my best friend. Charles, unfortunately, was sick (this is a trend when we go see them...) and I had to keep poking him because I could see him drifting off once in a while and the last thing I wanted was to have the woman on the other side of him suddenly have this 6'5" guy asleep on her. Other than that, it was an awesome show!
Aah, yes, good old PD.

I'm sure 'lady on the other side' appreciated you keeping Charles awake.

Maybe she can get you a good deal on a cruise.

Brandi is in full swing. I think Trent is already overwhelmed. I told him just to let her do whatever she wants, and he can show up when and where she tells him to. That way he won't be asking stupid questions or stressing over things he can't do anything about.

Thanks. I know Magic Kingdom is especially lovely right now with all of the holiday decor. I miss it, too, but plans are already being formulated for next December.

It has not happened yet. I won't count my chickens before they are hatched. Trent has dated perfectly nice girls, but he has some quirky ideas about certain things, and if someone thinks differently than he does on those particular things, it's pretty much done. Some I agree on and he should stand firm, but on some, he needs to compromise more. Just my opinion. I am guessing that Brandi is the one he feels good about, and he finally said 'okay' to the idea of marriage. I think they are shooting for May, if all falls correctly into place. I don't have any doubts about her, but it's Trent that can be a bit (a LOT) hard-headed. We'll see...

So, yes, Trent may be a little hard headed...
I'd much rather him be cautious and make certain everything is right before taking such a big step.
There must be something very special about Brandi! She is getting a really great guy!
We think Trent is the best ever!
I can't wait to get to know her....

Somehow, I have never managed to see Move It Shake It Celebrate It in its entirety. Just bits and pieces.

Cool that you saw friends from home!

Congratuations To Trent and Brandi!
You are too funny with your advice to him to just let her plan. Probly a wise course for a headstrong fella. What he doesn't know about he won't butt heads with her on, right?
I'll toast them with my first Dole Whip, in just 11 days!

Sounds like how one of my girls would "remind" me of something. Sorry my "elephant memory" is filled up. lol

I'll give him an A-. He's pretty good...except for an oversized mouth occasionally, and the hard head.

Let's make that a B+, now that I think about it.

The girls love that parade. It's nice when it is not so crowded that the street dancing isn't hazardous. Sometimes, it gets a little too crowded and crazy around the characters.

We had discussed at church crossing paths with these friends while we were there, but throughout the trip, as we were mesaaging each other, we would be at different parks, or one would have just left a resort as the other was arriving, etc. Finally, we managed to be in the same park on the same day without needing to be anywhere special. We have a friend who is down there now working in the College Program, and it's funny on FB to see that we are all often 'liking' her statuses and pictures.

Yes, it will be best for him to let her do the decision making. They did decide together that they are not doing tuxes, but they are going more casual. Whatever color the girls' dresses are, the guys will wear ties in that color. They are looking at casual venues, which I am super thrilled about, because as pretty as I think elegant things are, they are not my comfort zone as far as being in them. They are going to check into some farm settings this week, so I hope one of those pans out.

You will send us trip pictures, won't you?

I defer to her often. When she reminds me, then I'm all "Oh yeah, I remember."

I saw the good news on FB and I meant to text you - congrats! Tell Trent I said that, as well. I know you are happy he's happy. Can't wait to hear about upcoming wedding news (and eventually news of my grandbabies!)

I'm still way behind, but trying to get caught back up.

Congrats to Trent and Brandi! You're so lucky you have a new family member to introduce Disney to. There's nothing I love more that showing Disney to someone for the first time.

I notice in some of the parade pics the crowds along the sidewalk look pretty light. Was it too hot for people to stand and watch? I know when we went in summer I sure didn't want to stand in the sun and watch it.


By the way, how old are Trent and Brandi? Just curious...

I was just telling a girl that Ray works with this very thing. She was saying how she'd never been, and she's single and didn't want to go by herself, and thought it would look silly to go without kids. I said, "Are you crazy?? You'd have a blast! It's not just for kids. And I'd love to do a solo trip one day! No one to try to please or accommodate - just me in Disney doing whatever my heart desired....."
They both seem happy, so that's very good. Since they are 'older' they won't have a lot of years of playing around when it comes to baby planning. The ideal is to have a few years to mesh as a couple and then start thinking about children, but when you wait until later to marry, there is a bit more of a time factor. I will, of course, look forward to more sweet little ones to add to our family fun!

I don't think I would want to go solo, but I like solo time for taking pictures within a family or friend trip. I don't have a problem at all going with just adults, though. I like going with our friend, Kay, because we go at a different pace and see different things, and I would love going with just Jill for 2-3 days so that she could do whatever she wanted and really soak up some rest time. Even though I enjoy/would enjoy those times, I am always happier with my little girls around.

They are thinking about a Disney Cruise, so she'll be the one teaching us when it comes to that! I hope she really falls in love with Disney if they really do that.

Our friend who is a CM in WDW now posted resort hopping pictures yesterday, and one was riding the stick horses at Whispering Canyon.

We would love to have you for a Disney party sometime. Let us know your next trip dates, if you plan to drive through Nashville, and we'll do another Hippo Meet!

It did look light, but those were taken from the travel path of the parade, not the stop path. The people who were really going to stop and join in were up in the hub. From where I was taking pictures, those were just people who were okay with watching it go by, and then they were going to be moving on, like we were.

Trent is 28, and Brandi just celebrated her 30th. She was hoping to get the ring on her birthday, which is why my mean son waited until after midnight to give it to her. He did want to be predictable. Jill and I both told her she needs to get use to it, because life with Trent is certainly unpredictable.
