You will love POR!!! It was beautiful!!! We did not have a river view - but we walked along the river each time going to our room! It is such a pretty property!! the gift shop there is actually really nice - larger than some of the others - and they actually have a nice selection of "adult beverages" - the whole line of Skinny Girl beverages!!

yes - having some "alone" dining time will be good for all involved!! nothing wrong with some separation!

So close now.......................wish mine would come sooner!!
AHH! I'm so excited to go to POR now because of all the wonderful things I'm hearing!
I am very happy about getting some "alone time" dining with my two favorite guys It will be nice to be just US for a few hours a day

I'm excited for your trip in July!!! We will def make a meet up possible this time!!

lol about 30 minutes but I still put them on my suitcases when I go, just in case. I know I live in Florida and all, but sometimes I like to pretend I'm coming from somewhere else. I think they just automatically send those out and don't really look at address. But yeah, I'm not very far away at all. lol

Ahh yes I am not far at all! Besides, Disney is never too far out of the way, especially to meet a friend! And it helps to have months of notice

Busy and still feeling like time is going too slow!

Well, as of right now, I'm at the 19 day mark!! WOOHOO!!! in the teens!!!! I still feel I have so much to do but I really have been getting a lot accomplished. I ordered my mom her ECV from Walker Mobility today, and also ordered my PhotoPass+ today too!! Yay!! I'm almost done stuffing my mousekeeping envelopes, everyone got new shoes, I got some new clothes and now all I need to get is some new luggage, last minute medicines (just in case) and toiletries, and we should be all set! I have all my gratuities aside (as best as I can guess at the moment), my souvenir money aside, and Bolt's "doggy bootcamp" money set aside too. My poor Bolt was at the vet on Thursday getting his annual vaccinations, Rabies shot, and getting Neutered. He was none to happy with me. I don't blame him. His e-collar (a.k.a. the cone of shame) was bothering him so we went out and bought him an alternative to the plastic cone of shame and he is doing much better now.

These next few weeks are going to be busy. Tomorrow, well, rather today, Aiden has a birthday party to go to for his friend Layla, who he asked to be his Valentine lol Then a playdate for Layla and Aiden after and a mommy playdate (except this playdate involves some wine lol). Then Valentines Day on Thursday, going to Tampa next weekend, then the 22nd Aiden has a belt promotion. Then the last week Aiden will be in school, I asked his teacher to give me Aiden's work for the week we will be gone early so we can do it and he won't be behind or lost, so that week we will be doing double the homework. Then Friday, March 1st we drop Bolt off with Paul (the dog trainer/boarder), I get my mani/pedi, checking to make sure the house is clean, bags are packed, Minnie is set, and we will go to sleep and patiently await Daddy to get off of work early on Saturday the 2nd and then it's off to our Happy Place!! yay!!!

So exciting!!

Sounds like everything is coming together!!!

I saw your pics of poor Bolt - he certainly does not look to thrilled!

Okay - feel better knowing that you are definitely close - we will definitely plan for something as it gets closer to July - I am finishing up my current TR and then will go full force with finishing plans for the July trip! and by then, you should be back from your visit to the bubble and keep me busy with living vicariously through your TR till July comes around.............
