    The Champagne was an extra nice touch. It seemed like perfect timing to have visitors who could witness your good luck. That must have been fun to share it with them.

    :)

    Not much longer at all!!!

    I love Disney Magic!!!

    :rotfl2:

    It really is a lot higher than I thought it would be! Let me know how EMM goes. I almost booked it but went for the After Hours Event at MK.

    You'll be shocked to know I have no earthly idea what a Spark Skirt or a RedBubble is :P

    :scared1:

    Did you get in trouble again with your ***

    Ok this is clearly amazing and I couldn't be happier for you AND I'm a green eyed monster who wonders why by deluxe bed can't even have a runner on it anymore. Oh the dichotomy that is Disney.

    I'm sure @pepperandchips will do you prouder but I'm feeling a little old school with "tub-thumping" recalling the 90's song where I get knocked down and get up again! Or we could go a little risqué and 21st century with menage a roy disney :-)

    Just what the doctor ordered :drinking1

    This may be my favorite picture of yours yet :P Looks like you and the army man just got a wiff of his armpit

    Two of my favorites :lovestruc:lovestruc:lovestruc

    HEY LOOK, IT'S ME! HI, ME! :lovestruc

    Oh, also, hey Ariane. :wave2: And hello to the rest of you who said such nice things about me here! LOVE MY DIS GIRLS, and can't wait to see most of you in May! :grouphug:

    Ari, I am still super bummed that I didn't get to come see that insane suite! :eek: You have the wildest luck, lady. "Pixie Dust: That sh*t is real!"

    Thanks for spotting me in line at SDD and for waiting to say hello! It's always WONDERFUL to "meet" you! (Y'all, Ariane gives amazing hugs for a tiny person!) :hug:

    Every once in awhile I come up with something witty ;)

    I haven't actually seen that so now I have to google! At least Mickey had arms to take off first lol

    It's still not all that bad here in NY, just lots of rain but we're all ready for our trip. Well, ready in the sense of wanting to go; ready in the sense of having everything bought, packed, cleaned, etc, which of course is all me? Nope, not even close :scared1: I am way, way, way behind! I was busy all last weekend and will be out again all day Saturday and part of Sunday which means I'll probably be doing everything like, 48 hours before we leave and cursing all the way :headache:

    It was unbelievable because our luck is usually crap so we were very confused as to what was going on :rotfl2:

    I'm looking forward to the boys riding it too! They both enjoy 7DMT and I feel like Slinky is much better.

    :thanks: Since I haven't gotten around to ordering yet lol I'm just going to wait another few hours until tomorrow!

    Yes! RedBubble and also Tee Public. Sizing is pretty good, although going up a size works a bit better. I like the shirts on both sites better than the traditional Disney Store shirts :)

    :laughing: It was Mickey heads and the boys had them too, except Ricky refused to wear his! I still have them all in our "Disney wear" Rubbermaid containers but I highly doubt I could pay anyone but Steve to wear those again :rolleyes1

    It really was! I was glad we finally saw the CM who checked us in on our last day so we could thank him. I hate saying this, but we felt like the GF CM's were...............a bit "above" CM's at other resorts.............


    Oooh I like that better than mine :thumbsup2

    That's a perfect explanation lmao!

    And now it's 8 for you :cheer2:

    I've considered doing MK EMM before since everyone really likes 7DMT, but I'm the only one who really enjoys PP and WtP. At least with HS we'll (hopefully) ride SDD a few times and Chris loves TSM, plus they can try out Alien Swirling Saucers without me!

    :laughing: I need to PM you our schedule, I'm very bad at messaging!

    I got them yesterday! I ordered 3 different styles and like one, swingstyle, so I have to return the others but I just ordered 2 more :thumbsup2 I got the first ones really quick so hopefully these will come before we leave, too! And btw I heard of them from you :goodvibes

    Very sweet! He was a really sweet older CM, just wish I could remember his name :scratchin All the GF CM's, especially the CL ones, were awesome!

    I did do pretty good with that one, didn't I?? However I do like @Terra Nova guy's #looliquor too :laughing:

    I was very happy to see @Elevationist again and I cannot wait to hang out with her and all of you in May :banana:

    I think if it had been the ONLY pixiedust: I may have cried, but at that point I was just too giddy over anything "extra" that happened :goodvibes

    As an old person who still isn't quite sure why hashtags exist or how to use them, I am honored :cool1:

    She IS for sure!!!

    Wait wait, did you tell me once before that you live by me?? I can't remember! Are you in Hyde Park? I've been to Apple Pie Bakery, it's fantastic! I've also eaten dinner at the CIA quite a few times and always enjoy it. I totally understand about the cakes and they were absolutely gorgeous; this is also going back about 20 years FYI :oops: It was just so..............well, they were so BEAUTIFUL, and so CHOCOLATEY, and then they didn't take like Duncan Hines :rotfl:

    Right? If you don't like it, don't give your attractions acronyms we're going to love using!

    As much as we absolutely loved and are thankful for ALL the pixie dust, I'm sure we met our quotient for the next 15 years of Disney lol. And I don't think I would have eaten any of it (which I didn't), but I felt bad not giving Brandon any since he was looking at it with such longing!

    I saw that when I started reading your new TR; you're my sweet drink sister :hug:

    Wow, now THAT'S what I call a no-wait! Too bad it doesn't happen on FOP yet :rolleyes:

    Looking forward to meeting you too!

    :worship: and there is still one tiny, tiny bit to go :thumbsup2 nothing that doesn't happen to others but it was still a nice surprise!

    If all goes well it's going to happen! I'm already booked at WL, just need to make my flights. However since I've done 0 planning for our family DL trip in April except for booking our DL resort for part of the trip, I figure I need to work on that first or risk a revolt here...........

    I was very sad to miss Thanksgiving last year as we loved being there for the holiday in 2015 and 2016, so while the reason we can go is because Ricky's still out of basketball :( I'm excited, and so is everyone else. I honestly think going over Thanksgiving is my favorite time to visit!

    :laughing: So I mentioned earlier I ordered 3 different styles and like one, Swing Style. I have to return the others and quickly ordered 2 more this evening which will hopefully come before we leave!

    This was an extremely awesome additional surprise :goodvibes

    I'm right there with ya, G :thumbsup2

    Oh, ok lol! Completely understand! Nothing wrong with waiting!

    Whoo :banana: Just wish I didn't have 3 weeks left of things to do :bitelip:

    It's like the world is off it's axis, right? I asked him if he wanted to come to Universal with us or stay back at the resort and he actually said he wants to do Universal, and is excited about HS EMM. I mean this could change at the drop of a hat but for now, I'll take it!

    @Elevationist is so fun to talk to and hang with, I'm really looking forward to spending more than a few minutes with her on our EPIC trip in May and tossing back a few with her :drinking1

    It really made the day, and yes I was happy Cathy was there when it came :) She only lives about 50 minutes from me but between her working full time, her 4 kids and then my schedule we don't get together much. Her and Brandon had also had a bit of a rough trip; they weren't even supposed to be there anymore but he got a double ear infection a few days before so they couldn't fly home, and then she sprained her ankle in MK :( So it was nice we got to hang out.

    And then you'll be right behind me! Which is awesome except for the fact that we're missing each other again :headache:

    Will do! I have to call you and fill you in on my ship tour, also :hyper2:

    That's adorable. Maybe I'll buy you a matching sparkle skirt and then get us matching RedBubble shirts for May :D

    My *** always gets me in trouble..............

    That's because they're selling all the runners so they can give pixiedust: to folks like me :snooty:

    Now that's in my head! I'm jumping up and down, pumping my fist. Something else we can do in May if we're lucky enough to have a cool band playing during F&G :laughing: And yes, I WILL jump up and down. And sing.

    OK THIS wins!!! I want to change my TR title!

    Or we realized he's holding #stinkycheese

    :grouphug:

    Hi you :wave:

    Me neither!!!!

    First of all, we NEED that saying on shirts - maybe for our cruise :sail:
    Second, I know! I would have loved to have you come after we left HS but we were wiped, if your job could have only left things alone and allowed you one more stinkin' day! Maybe someone will get upgraded in May :P

    Aw :goodvibes Let's keep things in perspective though, I'm short but not tiny. I love the compliment though :love:

    The swingstyle is the only one I wear. I do have a flutter cut which is pretty cute but the swing is so flattering and girly and makes any park outfit look like you put some effort into it, not that you needed it. :)
    Oh and around Black Friday they will have some big sale, or some buy 3 get one free thing, which isn't cheap if you think about it but you'll use them forever.

    That is very clever too!

    Hopefully someone will be upgraded and we can all share the suite for some nighttime libations. :drinking1x 30

    I am in Hyde Park! Don't worry, we call those supermodel cakes- pretty and shiny, nothing on the inside! :P
    The Culinary actually sends TONS of students to Disney, so whenever you eat at a Signature restaurant, you're eating the work of our grads! A taste of home, right?:rotfl:

    That sounds awesome, I didn’t realize you all were going in to DL in April, I have been 1x only when Jack was 8 so a long time ago. Andi and I keep toying with the idea, however, it is way more expensive for us to go there than WDW. Flights are so high from here! I will be excited to hear more about that trip as well!

    I hadn't heard of sparkleskirts until you mentioned them, so I went to look at the website. OMG, they're so cute!

    I love odwalla lemonade in general, but I have a serious weakness for all cherry lemonade. But I don't do alcohol (I'd fall asleep on the next ride. :faint:) Is the puree like actual puree puree or is that another kind of alcohol? I'm sure I'll get charged the full $10 even if it's a virgin, won't I?

    hmmmm, maybe the champagne had something to do with that! But it def isn't a thrill ride.

    Yum! And this is hilarious! You def look like this was NOT your first drink/

    Such wishful thinking! I love it.

    I like this theory, I think we should all go with that!

    I ordered one flutter cut and then a hiker chic; the flutter was cute but something just didn't "sit" right which is why I'm sending that one back, but it wasn't bad! The hiker chic - :sad2:
    lol one can hope!

    I'm in Wappingers :wave:

    OMG that's a perfect description. Everyone loved when they were delivered and it was great having the relationship with the school; we got to eat lunch up there often too. It's just, well, I guess I ain't fancy :rotfl2:

    This doesn't surprise me at all! And we eat at lots of signatures so I bet I've tasted the creations of some local CIA grads!

    Surprisingly, flights to CA over spring break are less than to Fl over Thanksgiving!
    I was out there in 1995 lol, before California Adventure existed :rolleyes1 But Steve and the boys haven't been. I'm very excited! At this point it looks like we're also spending a couple days in San Diego and of course, Hollywood :tiptoe:

    I'd never heard of them until @chunkymonkey mentioned them, I just can't remember if that was in person or on the boards :) But since I often wear athletic skorts in the parks (said the most non-athletic person EVER) I figured these would work for me!

    They are! Can't wait to wear mine IN EIGHT DAYS; I'll try to post pictures of the ones I got before I go :)

    Hmm, it wasn't like, chunks of berry so maybe not actual puree, but I don't think it's another kind of alcohol. I'm not sure if they'd charge you full price without the alcohol :scratchin but it's worth a try!

    :laughing: It wasn't, but I think I was probably in the middle of saying something!

    Well that would certainly be easy for us to sing since we wouldn't have to actually.................sing :rockband:

    What a thoughtful surprise champagne and those strawberry's look heavenly.
    Glad to hear you liked SDD it looks like fun.
    I was wondering about the Alien Saucers because the teacups make me :sick:
