Life Is Like a Box of Chocolates . . .

. . . you never know what you're gonna get.  Especially when KJ's been messing around with your camera.  She has her own brand new camera purposely bought for Disney but she somehow still manages to leave a few surprises on my memory stick: 

Obviously she's quite excited about Disney and has been reading up on her Disney facts.  Did you know that 6 of the 7 Dwarfs have a parking lot named after them in the Magic Kingdom?  Doc is the only one who does not.  Disney folks were afraid park visitors would get Parking "Doc" confused with Boat "Dock."  And this is what I've come home to a couple of times this week:  

I like to call this one "Rasta Trix Goes Disney"  -- looks like a bunch of nasty dreds on her head. 

She looks positively thrilled, doesn't she???

And here we have T's dorm stuff taking over the guest room.  She worked all day yesterday so we met for dinner and then a quick Wal-mart run for some health & beauty stuff and other miscellaneous stupidness:

These are a couple of crafts T made for her room:  A smaller version of the chicken wire jewelry holder she made for her bedroom room here at home, mason jars spray painted with chalkboard paint for pens, pencils, make-up brushes (I think she's got some burlap or twine or something to still go on the jars).  I have no idea what she plans to do with that bottle she painted blue.  Maybe just for decoration?  A pop of color??

Each dorm is different and the newer ones they've built this summer @ Ole Miss are gorgeous!  We've been hearing horror stories from friends and seen some photos on instagram of dad's trying to build shelving units or bookcases (how are you going to get that in your car?  Wouldn't you rather assemble when you get there?).  T lucked out because her dorm is older and the entire one wall is full of built-ins (times 2) . . . a hanging closet, a desk, a set of built in drawers and storage all across the top.  She doesn't need to bring bookcases, storage or anything like that.  While the newer dorms already had them, we did have to buy the fridge and micro and her roomie is bring the TV and her mom offered to buy a rug for their room.  I've chatted with both Bess and her mom and we are so looking forward to meeting!  I think the girls are going to be a GREAT match and have an AWESOME year!!  Whoop!  Whoop!
