Avengers Assemble…Almost

May 15, 2015

I cannot believe the Avengers Half Marathon has yet to sell out.  There it sits, at 72% capacity a month after registration opened, while the Wine and Dine Half Marathon sold out in under an hour.  While the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge, 5K & 10K races have sold out, this is still MUCH slower than...

Supercalifragelistic Side Dishes

May 1, 2015

Side dishes. Without them, a meal isn’t complete, but no one ever talks about them.  Who wants only steak?  It’s just a big slab-o-meat until you add potatoes, and then it becomes a meal.  A meal without a side dish is like Mulan without Mushu, Aladdin sans Abu, or Ariel minus Flounder.  Sometimes, the...

Preposterous Peanut Problems

April 17, 2015

After church a couple of weeks ago, someone gave our daughter a piece of candy.  It was a miniature peanut butter cup.  Typically, our daughter avoids peanut butter; she just doesn’t like it.  But this particular Sunday was Easter.  Candy flowed from the children’s classrooms like water from Splash Mountain.  My husband opened it...

Supercalifragilistic Snacks

April 3, 2015
Red Velvet Cupcake

It’s no secret that I think Disney World has some of the best food offered, and that is one of the reasons our family frequents the parks so often.  There are a number of items so good that stand above the rest.  If you are planning a visit, be sure these items are on...

After I dried off and got some sleep, I had a great day at the parks. Can't wait until this year's race!

Thirty five minutes.  That is how long it took for the 2015 Wine and Dine Half Marathon to sell out.  The Luck of the Irish was not with everyone on St. Patrick’s Day this year.  Shenanigans. My husband and I share office space at home and we both have computers, so I used two...

Fast & Furious

This weekend is runDisney’s Princess Half Marathon.  I have not attended since 2013, and frankly, I’m a bit jealous of those headed to Walt Disney World right now.  Running has become my respite, and it’s been so cold in Michigan that the only running I do involves chasing small children around the house.  Not...

And She Looks Just Like Me

February 6, 2015
Meeting Princess Tiana

I have been a Disney fan my entire life.  Long before visiting the parks, each movie and show I watched on television or at the movie theaters told stories that influenced every part of my life.  From Mufasa bellowing, “Remember who you are,” to Hercules striving to “Go the Distance,” these movies taught me...

Magic Minus What?

January 23, 2015

When traveling to Disney World there is a great number of things you will always find at the parks, including Mickey, Minnie and other magical surprises.  Did you know there are a number of things that are not available, can’t be purchased or not allowed at the parks? Gum There is no gum sold...

How To Make a Disney Vacation Magical for OTHER Guests

January 9, 2015
Disney 2011 288

It’s 2015.  The list of things I plan to accomplish this year includes committing at least one random act of kindness weekly.  As I spent some time thinking about how I would do this, (filling someone’s gas tank, buying stamps for the next person in line at the post office, handing out ice cream...

For Auld Lang Syne, My Dear

For Auld Lang Syne, My Dear

Auld Lang Syne…who the devil really knows the words to that song?  Legend says that it was never actually intended to be a holiday song, but was played by a band between sets in the 1920s at a New Year’s Eve party, just as the clock struck midnight and became tradition.  Auld Lang Syne...
