Last Friday, Wayne forwarded me an email from Disney Destinations with the subject line: “Your Disney Vacation Is Amost Here, Horton Family!” I wanted to just let out a big ol’ girly-girl squeal right there in my office!! If my boss hadn’t been around, I probably would have!
Still no openings to the Spirit of Aloha Luau during our visit or a morning opening to move our BBBoutique appointment. I just know that we are going to be able to do these two things eventually. I can feel it!
I’ve started my packing list, but I haven’t checked it twice. What do you think the very first thing on my list is? Any guesses? I’ll tell you: sun screen! The Horton’s are a very fair clan and there is only one of us that is already sporting a “tan” – if you want to call it that – and that’s Wayne-o! One leg is browner than the other! We call it the “UPS Man Tan.” Ha! And you mean I have to walk around with him looking like that at Disney?! Oh, well. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I’m considering an airbrush tan myself before the big trip. I’ll let you know what I decide later.
Looks like you all ganged up on me and sided with Wayne, so I’ve decided to take the laptop! Even though I never got the cute little Vera Bradley tote to carry it in!
Call us crazy, but except for a scheduled character supper, our big birthday party on Tuesday, and a promised visit to the “beach” at the Beach and Yacht Club Resort (where Wayne and I stayed at our first Disney visit twelve years ago…), we really don’t have any “plans.” We’re flying by the seat of our pants and I love it. No pressure. Just pure enjoyment.
Baby Girl has racked up on some birthday money!! She has $140 to spend! Now, I know that probably won’t go that far at Disney, but I’ve bought her her very own “wallet” to keep in my purse during our trip so that she can spend it on whatever she wants. She’s excited about that!
Besides the chocolate birthday cake, do you know what else I’m looking forward to eating? I am SOOO wanting one of those Eskimo Pie thingies that’s in the shape of Mickey’s head. I’m all about some ice-cream and I haven’t fasted and walked my you-know-what-off these past five months not to enjoy it, either!
Disney, here we come!!
