Taking Our (PassPorter) Friendship to the Next Level

As with many others on the boards, a few of us have become close over the years. We all 'met' on here and share common interests (other than Disney, but that being a main interest of course). Then we started following one another's TRs, then came texting & Facebook. And then thanks to Skype we all 'met' in person this past summer. We have monthly "Girl's Night In" via Skype and I look forward to it each month. And now we are "Taking Our Friendship to the Next Level" and meeting in person! The title came to me from a co-worker as we 'took our friendship to the next level' by going out for happy hour/girl's night out and not just being work friends, so there you have it.

And now for the details:

Who: Dawn (dsteiny23), Linny (Linnyad), Melissa (honeybee723) & Me/Kelly (OhToodles!)
What: FINALLY getting together in person
Where: Atlantic City, NJ; Showboat Casino
When: Sunday, March 3 - Tuesday, March 5
Why: See 'what' & the title to this PTR/TR!



I will actually be coming in on Saturday, March 2 and staying with Dawn and her wonderful boys. Then we will all be meeting Sunday am at Showboat. Linny has been our tour guide and has helped us with making decisions. We're still working on final details, but all we really want to do is spend time together!

Sounds like it will be a great weekend!!
Did you get the short straw, though, in being the one tasked with the TR?

I had noticed your countdown, Kelly, and am so glad we get to peek in at the fun via this report! I'm so glad you're all getting together and I have no doubt these are life-long bonds you are forming.

How exciting! I remember those moments when I met PassPorter friends for the first time and it is such a wonderful moment.

Hmmmm? Don't ever know why that could be. Did you notice I wasn't jumping up and down with my hand raised? Kelly is super woman for being able to juggle two of these babies at the same time.

Okay, so even though I wasn't watching Walt's One Man's Dream on my laptop, I did, however, get a little tear in my eye when I started reading it. Oh Lord I hope this isn't a sign of what's to come when we get together. I'm wanting way more laughs than tears (happy tears that is) with you girls.

Okay...I guess if you really really want us too. (That's my whiney voice just so you know). Thanks for getting this thing started Kelly, and I'm getting ready to add my countdown to my siggie right now.

Yay!! That sounds like a whole lot of fun. Girls trips with PP friends are the best! I am so glad you girls worked something out to make it happen.

Melissa, I am sure there will be tears. Of course, happy tears like you said, but they will be there. Just wait till you read my last day, once I get it posted. Not too mention when we finally met up in the airport arriving. Forgetaboutit!
