Orient Beach, St. Martin

This is Orient Beach in St. Martin. It is on the French side of the island and is clothing optional. It is a gorgeous beach. The water was getting a bit rough because a storm was moving in. Normally there are no waves.

Toy Story Mania ceiling

This is the checkerboard on the ceiling of Disneys newest attraction/ride Toy Story Mania. It is soooooo much fun. I don't usually wait longer than 30 minutes for any ride but this one I waited 45 and 50 minutes to was that much fun!

If it's Thursday it must be school night

I'm off on a new adventure....Medical Coding School. It will be alot of work. The brain doesn't absorb as much as it used to and it is harder the older you get. But I have a great opportunity to take the class working for the college, so I'm going for it.

Sesame Street lunch at Beaches Boscobel

On our tour of Beaches Boscobel, they decided to give us the full character meal treatment. When we walked into this gorgeous restaurant this is what we saw

Bert and Ernie stopped by on their way to another event. Cookie monster was in the kitchen baking cookies with the kids, for real. It's one of the activities they have in the kids camp.

Then in came Grove, Zoe, Elmo and Abby Cadabby

I have to say that seven grown women became 5 year olds. We were up dancing with them and the excitement level was high. Big smiles all around. The character also do a singing and dancing show. Now imagine how excited small children would be.

The food was excellent too. They usually do this for breakfast but because it was lunch we were treated to steak and shrimp, yum.

Thank you to the GM and the Sales Mgr. for a great lunch and visit to your resort, it's top notch.

My bananas

Well now the pictures show up but not the text.
These are growing on my banana tree in my yard. I don't know when I'm supposed to pick them though. I might have to make banana daquiris!

This is my kitty Tequila

She's 16 years old. She was our first baby. I was testing out mobile photo blogging and finally got it to work.

I have to give props to Skechers the shoe company. I bought a pair of cute mary jane type sneakers. They had material(like the shoe shown) by the toes and both shoes wore out by the little toe. I was so upset because I only had them 8 months and got many compliments on them. I called up customer service and they told me to send them back and they would replace them.....yippee!!!!

Well the sent me a letter saying that style is no longer But I could pick another pair....yippee! This is the new shoe I picked.
Great customer service!!!!! Two thumbs up!

Welcome to Moe's

Ever been to Moe's Southwest Grill? They make your mexican food with what you want on it. And the items have very catchy names. When you walk in you're greeted with "Welcome to Moe's" in various tones depending on who and how many times they've had to say it during their shift, lol

I highly recommend it!

I'm going to Jamaica, mon

This is where I'll be staying July 10-13. Sandals Grande Ocho Rios. I have been invited by Sandals to go on a site inspection tour of their four facilities in Ocho Rios. There might even be a Sesame Street character lunch at the Beaches resort, yay.

And they serve my favorite rum, Appleton. I see lots of umbrella Appleton drinks that weekend.

Got the dresser!

Look how beautiful it is, it is in excellent shape. It is real wood not pressed board and it says it's Brazilian wood. Austin is thrilled with it and so am I for $80.00!
I really like Craigslist!

We took the mirror off to get it home and now that it sits in front of his window the mirror won't fit so we're going to hang it on the wall.

Clean up first!

I am looking for a light colored, 6 draw wood dresser for my sons room. He has this wicker thing that is falling apart. We went to furniture stores and the lowest price we could find was $289.00 plus tax, then $40 delivery charge.

So I decided to look on, what a wonderful site. You can literally find everything and anything. I think I found the perfect dresser not far from me and only $80, keep you fingers crossed that it's not sold.

But my original rant was that people take pictures of the items but they don't take stuff off the top of the furniture and worse than that, they have dirty underwear laying on the floor and the lampshade was all crooked. No way in hell would I even think to buy something from those pigs. At least clean up the area first before you take the picture.

Permission to come aboard?

We were out boating in the Gulf around Boca Grande, FL when a Zodiac watercraft came flying towards us with a blue light flashing. Now I had seen the Coast Guard cutter anchored so I assumed they were after some drug smugglers or evil doers. Nope they came right up to us. They were down from St. Petersburg and just checking out things in the Gulf.

They did a safety inspection, made sure we had enough live vests for everyone
on board. They were really nice, knowledgable fun guys.

This was taken from a Mouseboat (a little two seater) from Old Key West resort to Downtown Disney. I was told it was a "controlled burn" which meant the fire dept. started it and was controlling it so they wouldn't have wild fires in the area.

As we got closer ash started raining down on us.

Here's the Leggo dragon from the other side

Space shuttle

When I was at Walt Disney World over the weekend I got to see the space shuttle launch. I only got one good picture because nobody could figure out where it was going to show up in the sky and there was a big brush fire burning also.
