Hellllllllloooooo, my pets!
Am visiting you from Lake Buena Vista, FL. Am thoroughly ensconced at the Port Orleans French Quarter for the past few days.
My BFF showed up last night from Tampa and we drank/laughed/guffawed our night away(making mucho fun of the husbando) at Downtown Disney. We ate at the House of Blues (where Lamb of God was playing that night. I've never seen so many black t-shirted kids in my life. One dorky kid had a white tee on, no doubt he was beat up at some point.)
After buying too many goodies to take home to the kids, we headed back to the hotel via the shuttle boat (wheeee!) for more wine and an old fashioned girly chit-chat. (The husband pretended not to listen.)
The husband went to his conference/tour this a.m at 5:30 am (WHY, LORD, WHYYYY?). Star then had MAJOR a scratching problemo and kept me up. We sat in the dark and giggled until almost 7, wondering if she contracted scabies or some equally itchy condition. (at 5:45 am no less, so I'M IN NO MOOD FOR FRIVOLITY.)
Had HUGE shopping day at the FLORIDA MALL with the BFF, and am suffering because of it. OY! My debit card! Went a little nutso at the GAP, Nordstrom, and Express. I bought oodles of turtlenecks, cardigans, and warm wooly skirts since who else will buy them? It's 85 F here, people! And the cashmere was DIRT CHEAP! Hurrah! I made the BFF buy an adorable purse
Took Star to Panera Bread for a yummy lunch and post-shopping re-cap. Had such a fabulous time just hanging out and talking with her. We then went back to the hotel to change and show off our purchases to the husband. We took a leisurely (okay, we were hot and sweaty) stroll throughout the resort and then sent the husband off to his dinner with his buds. S. and I went to Capt. Jacks for dins, where we scarfed down crabcakes, shrimp cocktail, margaritas, clam chowda, and a yummy dip. The BFF then dragged me to buy a mouse-ear shaped ice cube maker and a pillow for my bed. Too cute!
After heading back to the hotel (yet again) Star left to go home and we hugged, sniffled and promised to email. Waaaaaah! Went back to my room and got into my new Victoria Secret jammies and vegged. Was a lovely day, fighting the crowds, eating too much and giggling over the tourists poor fashion choices. It's really hard to have my BFF live so far away, but I'm soooo lucky to have seen her three times this year, AND we are heading back to FL this January, (mark it down, Star!) so it won't be long until we are together again.
Must get organized for tomorrow as the husband is making me go on some VIP Disney tour of all the bloody parks. Am looking forward to getting to EPCOT because the International Food & Wine Festival is going on. Whoo-weeeeee!
