OK I am getting sappy here Please ignore this first part, just had to say thank you to some people who made my weekend one of the best ones ever.
Very first I have to give some props and to Princess Buttercup and Westley who are two of the most incredible, generous people I have ever known. You guys both did so much for me this weekend and took care of the business while I was out playing... thank you! I'm so glad I know you. I'm so glad that good people do exist!!
Speaking of good people, Brerrbit1, who is one of the best and saved the day (and night) many times this weekend. I'm so glad that you fell into our group last year. You're the type of person that I never thought actually existed! It was great hanging out with you again. Thanks for tolerating me.
And of course dontbecheekin who keeps me sane, I don't know what I'd do with her, and Maseca, who is the most wonderful new-old addition to my life - and also for being so truthful with me.... MrMainstreet who I don't see often enough and bring the crazy to the table and of course StitchTT6 who brings the... well, this is a family board so I'll just smile and now. Thank you all for making my weekend so much crazy fun.
And Disneyballerina, I'm sad I didn't get to hang out with you more often. I hope you enjoyed your "free" weekend! You are so sweet and nice and thank you for telling me the good news I can't wait to hang out with you again! And earkid and Mr. Earkid (great to actually hang w/you) and to Matt and Michelle, who I didn't see enough of!
This was a crazy and great weekend. Sadly, I didn't really meet a lot of new people, nor did I get to talk to the old people I hardly see... it was hard to breathe at that noon meet. But it was so awesome to see so many people! And it sounds like everyone had a great time!! Sunday was planned so perfectly. I'm so glad MiceChat and Disneyland and all youse guys are a part of my life!
And all my photo editing and resizing programs are on my old hard drive, so I had to cobble together a few programs to even try to make these manageable... So they aren't the best quality or the tightest shots. Sorry.
Saturday was a gorgeous SoCal day....
I spent most of it with Chris and we ate at the Blue Bayou. The flying dutchman cookie boat? OMG, TDF!!! He has a pic of me holding it. The best dessert EVER!! They also gave us pirate hats (the children's menu) which we HAD to wear all weekend!
We ran up Tarzan's Treehouse to burn off our lunch.
We rode some rides and stuff. My memory is so horrible!!
Mickey, Goofy and Pluto were riding on the Jungle Cruise. (The line went upstairs instead of through the whole downstairs queue. I'd never seen it like that on the off season)
Off to the DMCA meet, where I only took 1 picture! Mmm, Mali-Boomer Sunset!
Thanks to the general awsomness of PB and W, the Grand California was the hotel of the night! We stopped by there so I could get my key to move my car.
The room was small but nice, and the beds were SO comfortable and toasty warm!!!
Then it was back to Disneyland, where we rode more rides (I KNOW!!). I rode Space, yes, the third time ever. Look who's the brave girl now!
We are the 2 in the very back that you can't see at all
Dinnertime and we choose the Bengal BarBeQue. Line was long and slow as usual, but we made it to the Fireworks meet only a few minutes late! Yay!
I met some new people, like pen and inkwell, and I think maybe Kwgrlup? and two other people who I don't think are on MC? It was fun watching the weather balloons, especially the one dipping and looping. Of course the fireworks were canceled. Early to the bar? OKAY!!!
Also noticed these for the first time... I like em, though the blue and army green clash. But Peter Pan and Wendy! Yay!!
I have no Hearthstone pics! (I know, what?!). But once the alcohol was flowing at the Lost Bar... the camera came out....
Group self portrait...
So good to see Katie!!!
Peter Petrelli was there! you can't tell it's him... I thought it was better to not get a head on shot.
Then we stumbled on to our hotel rooms, with Chris taking the brunt of it. Marcie (SP) was with us too! It was a fun, fun day and a crazy night. Who knew Sunday would be even BETTER???
Sunday's coming up next....
