Just Around the River Bend

February 5, 2016

I’m from Flint, MI.  Unless you’ve been at Walt Disney World, immersed in a world of fantasy for the last month, you know that the water in my hometown has not been safe for consumption for well over a year, since the water source was changed from Lake Huron to the Flint River and...

I Believe In Yesterday

January 22, 2016

Last year, I registered for the 2016 Princess Half Marathon Weekend’s Disney Princess 5K.  Typically, I’m all in for the half marathon, but wasn’t totally sure I’d be able to go, since I’ve had to miss PHM for the last two years (pregnancy, weddings, not anything important at all).  Even though half marathon entries...

Paradiso 37, Disney Springs

January 8, 2016

After the Wine & Dine Half Marathon, several restaurants offered discounts or specials to race participants.  One of those was Paradiso 37 at Disney Springs.  In an effort to eat as much as possible during our “Ladies Only” trip, we stopped in and were pleasantly surprised to find absolutely no wait at all.  The...

Hopes & Wishes for runDisney 2016

December 26, 2015

So, I have a little bit of a running addiction.  Initially fueled by runDisney, it has spread far and wide to other races around the country.  I’ve learned a thing or two in my travels.  While no one puts on a better race than runDisney, several others have come very close and have triggered...

Morimoto Asia

December 11, 2015

Sometimes I can be such a nitwit.  Food Network and Cooking Channel are two of my absolute favorite channels to watch.  I have dreams of being a judge on Iron Chef America, enjoying a seafood battle between Masaharu Morimoto and Bobby Flay.  My dream turns into a nightmare when confronted with who I should declare...

Coast to Coast

November 27, 2015

For the second year in a row, I completed runDisney’s Coast to Coast Challenge in the span of one week.  The Coast to Coast Challenge medal is earned by runDisney participants, who complete an endurance race that is half marathon (13.1 miles) or better at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland in the same calendar year. ...

The REAL Animal Kingdom

November 13, 2015
Alligator INSIDE the Magic Kingdom!

Over the weekend, I was enjoying a leisurely stroll through the Magic Kingdom.  Crowd levels were high and it was too warm to exert much energy, especially after participating in two runDisney events.  The decision to slow down and look at all of the details in the park proved to be a good one....

Just Keep Eating

October 30, 2015

Tonight, I had a bag of popcorn for dinner.  Not because I hadn’t gone grocery shopping, but because I didn’t want to cook.  I cook all the time, and am pretty good at it, but I think I’m going on strike for a few days.  Why? I’ve made a list of all of the...

History Repeats Itself

October 16, 2015

This time last year, I was planning to go to the Wine and Dine Half Marathon at Walt Disney World and the Inaugural Avengers Half Marathon at Disneyland.  Well, history is repeating itself, with a few added bonuses.  In a few weeks, I’ll be headed back to Florida for the Wine and Dine Half...

My Disney Experience Tips & Tricks

October 2, 2015
Yellow Magic Band

Our family loves My Disney Experience and the corresponding phone app.  It makes planning a trip to Walt Disney World easier and keeps all of your information in one convenient location. While Disney is always upgrading and improving, there are a few things, in my opinion, missing from the mobile app and the service.  Here...
