Totally not surprised!I don't think we'll be online much for the next few days
Thanks! Hope you had a happy birthday and Happy Thanksgiving to you!And @pkondz a Belated Happy Thanksgiving to you!
Oh no!I lost my phone
That's a rough situation. Respect to you guys for pulling it off and dealing with it as well as you are! Hopefully some of those questions will start to answer themselves soon.We’re just in this limbo of job land where he’s working 1,200 miles away and do we move? Do we keep doing what we’re doing? Is this permanent? Should he keep an eye open to something down home? It’s complicated.
That's awesome. I mean, totally get your perspective, obviously. But I love the fact that she thinks that much of you and wants you for her dream girls trip.Me, Gia, and her Mom. I mean, if I’m spending that kind of money it’s unlikely I’d do it on a trip withOUT my son and husband, and WITH her mother. BUTTTTTT knowing that’s how she felt just absolutely warmed my heart to no end.
That. Is. Awesome!!!!!I also made JP a sweatshirt that Jimmy had requested I make for him.
This is pretty awesome too! I hope you all enjoyed the movie and that she had a great birthday with all the family and extended family groups!We have opening night tickets to Frozen 2 on Thursday. BECAUSE MOM'S BIRTHDAY IS FRIDAY! I thought about making her a shirt that says FROZEN at 29. HAHAHAH. But we're going to dinner and then all going to see Frozen 2 at a local theater. Got the tickets last week or so. Gia's at her mom's, but her and her mom's family are coming too. And my in laws. What better way to celebrate my angel of a mother than going to see the newest Disney movie with a smorgasbord of people. Because my mom has always operated under the notion that everyone that walks through the door is family.
I think that's a great idea! And I told her it's hard to make plans right now, but I'm hoping we will make a trip around July 4th while Danielle is still working.Just play up the fact that you will be doing more "baby" rides... maybe?
So glad you liked it! We love it, especially JP. He loves "mama Coco".Just thought I’d let you know Michelle that I watched Coco and I loved it! Makes me love the Mexico pavilion even more now
Holy crap. I feel you on this one.Honestly ready for a break.
Actually, no. Maybe because our plans are so tight and we have a little one. But we've kinda stuck with everything we have. Only thing we've manipulated is the party to-do list, and maybe the in-betweener stuff.Any tweaking of the plans recently?
never tried it, but either sounds AMAZING.So, I switched out Boma for Ale & Compass at the Yacht Club. I've never been - any opinions on that?
as a young couple on the trip (our wedding trip), I wish we would've done this. As much as I want to enjoy EVERY MINUTE with my family, having a few moments alone wouldn't hurt.Also am thinking of having one evening where my son and his girlfriend can have dinner on their own, so I may switch things around on the 20th as well...it's just hard for me to leave things alone
OMG I LOVE THOSE! I have 3 separate amazon returns to bring to Kohls tonight.... my wallet is in trouble now!Found the cutest t-shirts at Kohl's yesterday for our trip! They were on sale for $6.99 and I had a 20% off coupon, so great deal. The Mickey one is for me, and the Star Wars ones are for the boys (whoever will wear them )
Well, thank you. Hoping for more concrete answers, soon. Although none of it is easy, just knowing what we can prepare for would be nice. Anything to be together again! It's funny... Jimmy has ALWAYS said "why don't you go take the weekend and fly to see your friend in Disney." or "yall go without me to do this fun thing, I just love it when you get to have fun". and i've always told him no, that I don't WANT to do those things without him. Here I am, finally taking him up on that offer... and he's like "I'm so glad yall are going to have a great time... BUT DONT EVER GO TO DISNEY WITHOUT ME AGAIN" LOL!!!!That's a rough situation. Respect to you guys for pulling it off and dealing with it as well as you are! Hopefully some of those questions will start to answer themselves soon.
Definitely warms my heart to hear that.That's awesome. I mean, totally get your perspective, obviously. But I love the fact that she thinks that much of you and wants you for her dream girls trip.
I get the feeling you'd get along well with my husband.That. Is. Awesome!!!!!
Happy to help!!! Hope you love them.I just ordered my MB decals -- thanks for the links, Michelle!
We are doing about the same. Trying to "wrap up" Christmas so we can also wrap up our trip preparations... as danielle has finals and is sick. Now, I'm sick. We're just hoping no one else gets sick. I spy a lot of claratin and humidifiers in our near future! BUT SO EXCITED WE WILL BE IN DISNEY SO SOON!!!!!This week I'm focusing on getting Christmas cards done and some decorations up here at home. I hope everyone's final plans are coming together. Such a wonderful time of the year, and with a Disney trip as part of it, it's especially exciting!!
A Belated Happy Thanksgiving to you too Liesa! One week from today we will be in Disney! I'm so far behind on everyone's reports but really want to get caught up too. Your new Grand Baby is so precious. I hope your getting lots of hugs and kisses.Happy Thanksgiving, Vanessa! Your plans are all coming right along and things are falling into place- sooooo close now!!! I'm trying to get caught back up after travel and family things (new grandbaby) so will keep my comments short, but I am reading and loved following along!
Thanksgiving was fun but exhausting. We ended up with 41 for diner and since it was such a beautiful day we spent most of it outside. It was a fun filled weekend that started with Cousins Karaoke on Wednesday night. Some of our group did the Turkey run on Thanksgiving morning before we gathered for a late lunch. Some ended Thanksgiving with some pre-Black Friday shopping. Friday had groups splitting up again but that night we all went to the lights at the Zoo. Saturday we went to LSU to absorb some of the gameday excitement and to see Jimmy walk down Victory Hill with the team. LSU invites prior team players to do this at each home game. No one had tickets to the game so we rushed back home to watch it. Our house guest all headed back home on Sunday morning and I've been trying to get caught back up since then.How did your Thanksgiving celebration go?? I'm sure it was wonderful having all the friends and family, but probably exhausting too. We had a great family weekend with T-Giving dinner at my mom's on Thursday, with my in-laws on Friday, and I just hosted brunch for my youngest son's confirmation this morning . Honestly ready for a break. Have a lot of driving to do tomorrow to get DS19 back to college. Then I can be in full-fledged Disney excitement! Just 18 days to go!!
I'm still trying to get back to normal and put up Christmas decorations. Very little packing has been done so far.Best of luck this week getting the house back to normal, and getting your packing on!!!
Love the shirts! The shirt I'm wearing to MVMCP came from Kohls.Found the cutest t-shirts at Kohl's yesterday for our trip! They were on sale for $6.99 and I had a 20% off coupon, so great deal. The Mickey one is for me, and the Star Wars ones are for the boys (whoever will wear them )
That was a very busy Thanksgiving. I can't even imagine that much snow. Glad you were able to get some decals ordered. I have a reminder to order some after we get back for my very short trip in January to drop Danielle off for DCP.I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family, friends & food! I drove my DD#3 to Richmond, VA for a field hockey tournament and we met up with another family and had our turkey dinner at Cracker Barrel! TBH, I didn't hate it! The food and value were pretty decent, and no prep or clean-up! We drove back home (upstate NY) on Sunday. Yep, straight into the heart of Winter Storm Ezekiel. Between the volume on the first part of the journey and the weather on the second half of the journey, it took us over 12 hours. Hope to never repeat that experience! My little town of Glenville had its 10 minutes of fame being mentioned on The Weather Channel for receiving the highest snow accumulation of the storm -- lucky us. Good news is there was a Snow Day on Monday, so we could sleep in. I can't believe how close our trip is! Two weeks from tomorrow we arrive! I just ordered my MB decals -- thanks for the links, Michelle! I also ordered some inexpensive Christmas ears and will save the ears and decals as surprises. Last week I picked up some cheap-o decorations at the dollar store that I'll probably just toss when we leave but will make the villa feel festive. This week I'm focusing on getting Christmas cards done and some decorations up here at home. I hope everyone's final plans are coming together. Such a wonderful time of the year, and with a Disney trip as part of it, it's especially exciting!!
How can you not???Do you every play the "this time next week" when your getting real close to a Disney trip.
Ugh. That game isn't as fun.We like to do this and then once we're back is the sad look back at what we were doing "this time last week".
What???? How is that possible! Yesterday you were a month away!On this day next week we will be IN DISNEY!!!!
I sooo get this!When we were looking at flights I was looking for a direct flight that got us there as early as possible so we could spend some time in a park so flying out at 6 am seemed to be the best choice. Now that we have to actually think about what time we need to wake up on Saturday morning to get there it doesn't look as good.
That's not bad at all.So far it looks like the highs will be in the low to mid 70s and the lows in the 50s.
Probably working and wishing I was with you guys in Disney.What will you be doing 1 week from today?
Your day sounds so fun! It's hard to share your kids and grand kids once they get married. Hopefully next year it will be your turn to have them on Christmas.1 week from today I will be going to the Santa Christmas dinner with my grandson and family at our local golf club. Early christmas celebrations as my daughter, her husband and grandson are headed to Denmark for Christmas to celebrate with the other side of their family this year
Very rewarding! I hope y'all sell lots of cookies. Hopefully everyone comes to mass hungry.One week from today I'll be setting up a Christmas cookie table in our church's vestibule. It's a fundraiser for our teens (including my youngest) who do a mission trip to Appalachia each summer. They do construction projects for homeowners in the area. So Saturday will be spent baking cookies, and we'll sell them after the masses on Sunday. Hoping it will be successful!
Glad to hear I'm not the only crazy one.How can you not???
True! It's right up there with the "Tracigal Express".Ugh. That game isn't as fun.
The time is really going fast now.What???? How is that possible! Yesterday you were a month away!
I know you do. I just hope we don't have any issues and get there really late.I sooo get this!
Fingers crossed is stays that way.That's not bad at all.
I tried to get you to come.Probably working and wishing I was with you guys in Disney.
Glad to hear I'm not the only crazy one.
yup.True! It's right up there with the "Tracigal Express".
Good!The time is really going fast now.
I'm sure everything will be fine.I know you do. I just hope we don't have any issues and get there really late.
You didn't try hard enough. I did not get my airline ticket in the mail.I tried to get you to come.
Good luck. Seriously.This will be our first test to see if we can make rope drop with a 2 year old.
OMG! A rare day off!What will you be doing next Sunday?
