Welcome

If you have found me through Kristen’s link at www.couponingtodisney.com “Welcome”.  If you are one of my regular readers (Welcome back) I am guest blogging on Thursday and Friday for Couponing to Disney while Kristen is on vacation at DISNEY WORLD!

My Blog has been kind of slow for a few months.  I have been super busy.  Recently I decided I wanted a Travel Blog to keep track of my trips and stuff.  I worked on this over last weekend and I am working on getting it all organized.

I have only a few of my Trip Reports organized so far.  I am working on moving the reports from all of my travels to my new travel Blog.  You can find the new Travel Blog at www.lisastripreports.wordpress.com , or you can click the link at the top marked Vacation Trip Reports.  

I love all things Disney, si I started with some of those trip reports.  I love Disney so much I became a Travel Agent before planning my Disney Wedding, I specialize in Disney Vacations.  If you have any Disney Travel questions or would like a quote on a magical vacation email me at TripsbyLisa@gmail.com  and I would be more than happy to help!!

Happy Birthday to ME!

Yesterday was my birthday…I turned OLD!  LOL  Nah not really.  But I am 10 years older then my favorite age ever.  Hmm!  LOL

My Sweetie gave me my Blue Diamond ring…AMAZING!  He also left me a package of my favorite Chocolates and a Sweet Disney Princess Card for me to find. 

We enjoyed a great dinner with my sister, Dad, Brother in Law and Alyssa.  She was all up in the Birthday Action!  Look at those cheeks!

Alyssa gave me a great Tinkerbell snow globe to add to “our” collection.  I also got a new Door mat, and some pictures form my sister.  My Dad gave me a Frying pan to use on the grill, like for veggies and stuff!  It was a great Birthday!

THEN today I got this at work!

SOoOoOo good!  My sweet friend sent it to me.  I was shocked.  She was flipping out since it was supposed to be delivered yesterday.  BUT I adore her and love it so much.  OMG I am on fruit overload.  I will be skipping dinner tonight.  I just can’t stop enjoying this fruit.  It is so fresh!

I also got a bazillion Facebook “Happy Birthday’s” and lots of great cards!  It was a great day!

Oh and Pete and I planned a trip to New York yesterday, yup a GREAT birthday!!!

Forever Family

I am so so Happy for our good friends E & K!  Yesterday they found out that their son’s adoption will be final come June!  He is theirs forever!  They are ecstatic as is his big sister!  Pete and I are so very happy for them all!

Day 8 – November 6, 2009 – Bahamas – Part 1!

Today Pete and I decided we had seen the port of Nassau before and wanted to enjoy some ship time. Laura and Brandon planned a couples massage for the morning and Pete, my Dad and I got extra Alyssa time!

Alyssa and my Dad loved the Top Bunk. We were all lazy this morning.

We got a few more fish extender gifts today. Look at my Dad. In his hand is a pair of slippers shaped like the ship. My sister and I bought these as a gift for him at least 10 years ago. He still has them and only uses them while we are on vacation. People always ask were he got them since they are no longer for sale on the ship.

More modeling of our fish extender gifts. Alyssa still wears the pirate patch around our house. LOL

Posted Image

Pete and I along with Alyssa and my dad headed up to the pool area.

Posted Image

She’s got it…don’t even think about helping her. LOL

Isn’t her cover up adorable. We bought it at the DIsney Store months before our cruise. We bought her so much for this cruise. LOL She is the slightest bit spoiled by Aunt Lisie and Uncle Petey!

We liked to get the elevators with the glass. The center ones.

We got to the pool area. It was breezy, really breezy! Alyssa had fn in the splash zone. But it was really kinda cool.

Look behind Alyssa….The ship is EMPTY on port days!

Posted Image

She is such a dare devil!

Posted Image

She spoted someone with Pizza and wanted a snack. Pete ran to get her some and I got us a table.

Posted Image

We took some pictures as we were eating.

I love when I get kisses with out asking for them.

Posted Image

After two Pieces she was full and we went on a character hunt.

Posted Image

That is my dad chasing her! LOL

We found Goofy!

Posted Image

The crowds were so low that she got in line to see him atleast 3 times. LOL

Posted Image

He sat right down on her level. They had fun playing for a few minutes!

Posted Image

Thankfully this was before she started giving “Doggy kisses” so none of the Characters got licked. LOL

Posted Image

Posted Image

Goofy needed a nap….I know cause she told him so. LOL

Posted Image

The handler had to pull Goofy away! LOL Alyssa was fine. She kept pretending he was still there.

Posted Image

I LOVE this next picture! She is such a ham!

Posted Image

This is the look I got when I told her it was nap time!

Posted Image

Alyssa and I went for a nap. Laura and Brandon finished thier massages around the same time. Laura and Pete headed off for some lunch and my dad and Brandon headed to Atlantis for some afternoon gambling.

Tea Anyone?

Tea Anyone

 

Popeye and Alyssa are enjoying an Early Morning Tea Party on the outside patio of the condo in Ocean City.  How stinking cute it this!  My Dad wil do anything Alyssa wants him too.  he is such a wonderful grandfather!

Day 7 – Cruise Day One – Part 3 or 4!!! November 5, 2009

Day one of the cruise was action packed!

After Dinner we went to the attrium to visit Mickey and Minnie! Mickey had left so we had to settle for Goofy! He kinda scares Alyssa, I think it’s because he is so tall.

I Hate Free Dining at WDW….

LOL…Not really, it is really nice of Disney to give away their dining planing during the hell of the summer, but there is no way I would ever go then!  It is HOT HOT HOT!  Also with the free dining it is crowded!  You couldn’t pay me to go then!

Yesterday Disney released the free dining promotion for the general public.  I was on the phone FOREVER….Hours and Hours on hold to switch the reservations for 3 of my clients.  They saved TONS of money.  One almost $1000!  How awesome!  They all needed summer trips due to school breaks and stuff.  One is a very good friend of mine and I am glad she could save over $600!  But still the heat!  Ugh…LOL

I also found out that there is another good deal out there (40% off) and I switched another client to the Polynesian today!  I am so excited for them!

I am off to write more trip report from November.  Need to get it all done so I can start  my next one!!!
