I tell you, it seems like everyone is sick! This week, it is my turn It is just a sinus infection, but man is it painful! I never realized how much I bend down during the day, until I did it with pain and pressure in my face! We mommas do too much bending down! Hope everyone in your house is getting healthy!
Thank you!! I love people's castle shot pics to watch kids grow up! The first two times we took D, I couldn't get a castle shot of him without my 100,000 closest friends in it too!

Oh goodness, I hope you are feeling better!! You're right. . .we do do too much bending down! D is recovering, and the weather days we've had off have helped that! They just prescribed Brian another medicine. . .pretty sure this is the 5th antibiotic. Hoping this one kicks all the way in!! I hope all of y'all get well and stay well!

We love that totem pole! I have pics there from last year, and I'm excited to get some for comparison from this year! Plus, you have to rub Humphrey's nose to get the trip started off right! That was a great idea your mom had!!

Are you going to be writing a TR for this trip (I"m sorry if you've mentioned that and I missed it).
No worries--you've had a lot on your plate!! Thanks for taking the time to catch up! We really did have good holidays! It was a lot of fun! Yep, we hit 9 weeks out today...I can't believe it! I will definitely be writing a trip report. . .complete with all of my eating indulgences! I hope you'll read along!! I hope everything's looking up for you!!

Thanks, everyone, for reading along!! I will be back tomorrow with another update!!

Day 3 Dining!!

Ahhhh. . .another chapter devoted to my food plans! These are the things I think about while sweating it out on the treadmill!

We don’t have an ADR for breakfast this morning, so we will probably grab something in the Lounge or use a snack credit (or both!).

For lunch, we are headed to a first for us, Liberty Tree Tavern!



Brian & I went there for dinner in 2004, before MVMCP, when it was still a character meal. I ate the salad, and the dressing made me sick before we could even make it very far out of the restaurant. Note to self: no salad!!

We decided to make another go at this one, after seeing lots of yummalicious pics and updates on the dining board. I am not sure what I will eat—maybe the turkey dinner? But I KNOW I will be having the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake!!! Oh yes, it will be mine!!

I plan to use up lots of my snack credits this day to get some snacks (“Mickey Munchies”, as D calls Rice Krispie treats) to have to take with us! And what’s an MK day without a Mickey bar?

For dinner, we are closing out the day with one of our family’s MOST favorites!! ‘Ohana!!

I L-O-V-E this meal!! Love it, love it, love it!!







My favorite part is the wings. I have no idea why, but they are terrific! We all like the food here (especially D, since they bring him chicken nuggets), and we were thrilled that it could close out our last park day!

I think that will definitely be enough food to cap off our day!

We are doing dinner, and I will mourn not getting to try the ooey gooey toffee cake...maybe it is not too late to change our ADR to lunch...

I L-O-V-E this meal!! Love it, love it, love it!!

Yours is the third post in 2 days that I have seen about 'Ohana dinner, now I am trying to figure out how we could swing it, but I don't want to cancel any of our other meals! I guess we will just have to go back VERY soon! HA! Now if I could only convince my DH...
I will not change my ADR's, I will not change my ADR's, I will not change my ADR's....

MLK Weekend!

I do so love a long weekend! As I mentioned before, it came at the end of a weird week!

Heres how that week played out. . .on Monday, D was sick, so he and I were home from school. We had TONS of rain, so school was closed Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday, we went back to school, only to be let out at 1 pm, due to impending snow. On Friday, we were out of school due to snow! Definitely my kind of week!!

Now, please understand that we dont do snow here. So any snow we get AT ALL usually gets us out of school. I feel like I have to put that disclaimer in, since some of you probably live where you get lots of snow, and youre going to look at these pics, and think WHAT?!

Our snow:



D in our snow:





It took me 10 minutes to get him dressed to go out. He took 10 steps onto the deck, I snapped a few pics, and he said, Momma, this is the coldest, wettest winter I has ever seen. I dont like it. Lets go in. Yep. Our 5 minute snow adventure!

The weekend was full of lots of fun! The sun finally came out, we celebrated 60 days out, and we got to spend lots of time together!

I also got in touch with The Perfect Gift (Shirley) for some trip surprises! Hoping to finalize that this week!

I hope all of you had a wonderful long weekend as well!!

Hi Brooke!
I was rolling from the laughter at your snow because here in North Alabama we are the same way! Our schools closed also - it's so funny!
I also ordered last week from The Perfect Gift - Kevin was so helpful and I left a comment to Shirley on her fb page about his helpfulness. I haven't commented much on your PTR but I have been reading along. Hard to believe it's getting so close! We are so excited to be sailing the Dream again.
Are you going to join the FE? I have been working on our gifts for it - my DS and I enjoy it so much! So fun to leave surprises for other cruisers!
Have a great week!

Bette

I know! He is a hoot. . .and not a fan of the massive amounts of snow we got! I don't know what he'd do if we lived somewhere where it actually snowed!!

It is pretty funny about the snow. . .though I love my snow days! We have them built in to the calendar (through extra time), so if we don't use them, it's like we "lose" days.

I can't believe our cruises are so close!! Aren't the people at Perfect Gift so nice? I am so excited to see the stuff!! And I know my guys are going to be surprised!

I don't think we are going to do the FE this time. They are adding a bunch of stuff for us at work, and I don't think I have time to get anything together. I know you all will have a blast, though!! It's such an awesome idea!!

I hope your week is wonderful as well!!

Update coming below!! Have a rockin' day, everyone! And thanks for reading!!

60 day countdown!!

I cant believe we are now under 60 days! Less than TWO MONTHS from today (January 23rd ), and we will be in WDW!! (As we like to say here, Lord willing, and the creek dont rise! )

We did a sort of crazy celebration for our 60 days! Due to the nutso weather we had last week (and the fact that D & I only went to school ONE day, and it let out early), we had a bit of cabin fever. Brian came home Friday after work, and said, Get ready and lets go to Chuys!

I am NOT a quick get-readyer. I wish I was. However, it is just not to be. I knew I had to get that done so we could get there before there was a huge wait. So I slapped some makeup on and threw on a hatremember that and be merciful about the pics!

When we got there, the wait was 45-50 minutes. The hostess said, if someone is getting up from a table in the bar area, you could tackle them and take the table! So, we went in there to table-stalk! Finally, a couple about my parents age realized what we were doing (it could have been because of the youngish Dad guy with 2 kids and his wife and inlaws who was trying to put a football block on me to move me away from my already-stalked-out spot. . .what was he thinking!? ). Anyway. . .they paid and slid out of the booth and blocked it until we could get in there!

We had already decided that this would be our 60-day celebration (at 62 days, but whos counting?). So, here we are. . .celebrating!





We had a great dinner and then went to visit my brother, SIL, and my niece!

Fast forward to Sunday, January 20! Our REAL 60 day date! We had a great day together! The sun finally came out, so we did what any good cabin-fevered family would do. . .we went to Target!

First, though, I had to celebrate with my Sunday morning coffee mug from my FAVORITE PLACE:



We also hung up the 60 day square:



AND I made the next-to-last payment on our trip! YAY!! AND I had the BEST CM ever on the phone! He was awesome, and he even did a little cheer for my 60 day date!!

We also got D some shorts for the trip this weekend, and scored a coupon for a few more!

Yay for 60 days!! SO ready for it to be here!!

My philosophy exactly. NOTHING adds insult to injury like a messy house after a trip to WDW. On top of all the laundry that needs to be cleaned and put away, who needs to add dishes to PDD (post Disney depression)?

Less than 60 days!! So exciting I cannot eat the salad at LTT either, I think it has something to do with onions for me though. I love your little snow adventure lol Poor guy looks awfully cold - and we don't even call that snow here
