“We lay there and looked up at the night sky and she told me about stars called blue squares and red swirls and I told her I'd never heard of them. Of course not, she said, the really important stuff they never tell you. You have to imagine it on your own.”
First Park You Ever Went To:
Magic Kingdom in WDW in 1989
I was 9 months old the first time I went to a Disney park, and since then I have gone once sometimes twice a year to Disneyland or Disney World!
So lucky my momma loves it and got me hooked :)
Riding Big Thunder Mountain on our April 2013 trip!
Favorite Mountain Attraction (Splash, Space or Thunder):
My favorite mountain attraction is probably Big Thunder Mountain.
That was my definitely favorite ride when I was younger, as soon as I was tall enough to experience it! My mom’s favorite is Space mountain, so we often had fun running back and forth to both of them during our trips to the parks.
Day 1: FavoritePark
My favorite park would have to be EPCOT.
I love the music, food, drinks, smells and the atmosphere there. I also really love just hanging out around World Showcase, and Illuminations is my favorite show. I think for me that park isn’t about the rides, it’s about the atmosphere and that makes it my favorite. If we were going to base it on rides it’d be a whole different story. I also love that the monorail comes through the park. The history of EPCOT and what Walt Disney originally wanted it to be is also very interesting.
Give me a brat from Germany, a margarita from Mexico (although they don’t go too well together, haha) and a good spot to watch Illuminations and I am one happy happy girl.
My boyfriend, Donny, and I at the Japan Pavilion picking out oysters
I got the best present I could ever ask for this holiday season…
I found out that I can graduate from UNC this spring :), with just one more class to take! I also found out that I got the job at PFA and I couldn’t be happier!!
For the last few months I had kind of been in a rut, thinking it would be at least a year before I would finally be done with school and feel “like an adult.” I have also been at the same job for 7 years, and it’s time to work at a place where I can move up.
I bought a FitBit One yesterday and am pretty excited to see how it’s information motivates me. The goal is to burn an additional 500 calories a day (on top of my BMR which is 1954) to loose around a pound a week. I really like the food I eat, and I don’t want to diet or change my eating habits a lot. I don’t eat big portions, but I do enjoy the occasional chocolate chip muffin or slice of pizza…and I don’t want to change that haha. So this little gadget will tell me calories burned (including BMR), how much sleep I get, how many steps I take and stairs I climb, etc. Then it allows me to set goals and I get badges for reaching them! Too cool!
I leave for visit my sister in WDW here in a couple days, so I’m really psyched to see how many miles I am actually walking when we are there, and how many extra calories that burns!
I’m pretty happy with my weight, but it’s time to shape up and drop a couple pounds in the process. Can’t wait to start my new job either, and frame my diploma :) oh man! Exciting things coming!
Waiting until midnight so I can register for my spring semester classes! They are filling up quickly so this is the best way to go about it I suppose.
Tomorrow is Halloween…
going to go see Skrillex & Knife Party!
Ugh, be midnight already!
dum de dum…
Holy cannoli! Had such a wonderful time in Disneyland…as always :)
We spent Friday, Saturday, Sunday in the parks and then went to LA/Hollywood/Santa Monica Pier/Venice Beach on Monday and then finished up our trip back in the parks on Tuesday! I’ve been uploading pictures all day so I’ll post those soon!
Cars Land is amazing! So were all the other changes in California Adventure.
Ahh, I can’t wait to go back!
