Two women…four parks…one weekend

Yippie-ki-yo-ki-yay! I’m out of here at 1 today (at the expense of my lunch hour). Our plane should touch ground at 6:20 pm. I’d love to be on property by 7:30. Needless to say, Erin and I are stoked about the weekend getaway. At first, the only toiletries I packed were a toothbrush and deodorant. Horrified that it looked like I was packing for a one-night-stand, I swung by CVS before work and picked a trial size toothpaste (was going to bum some from Erin), two razors and a trial size of shaving cream. Also bought replacement batteries for my Magical Moments Pin.

My hair still looks fantastic from yesterday. I wish I had the wherewithal to blow it out every morning like they do at the Salon. But I’d rather sleep in an extra 45 minutes. Wearing a kicky pink and blue WDW t-shirt and capri jeans (size 8 and baggy…yay!) and my Strawberry Shortcake socks. Of course, all the world sees of the socks are the pink band around the top. But I (and now you) know that they’re festooned with strawberries and a big pic of Strawberry Shortcake. Yes, I am almost 31 years old.

Mood: Excited. About the TRIP, you perv!
Work docket: The community guide will never end. Hot properties once I get the ($#&%# ads to convert. Also have some August housekeeping to do on the site.
Afternoon: Meet Erin at Mom’s at 1:30. Drive to Pacifico Airport Parking. Flight out at 3:55 pm.
Evening: Arrive in Orlando at 6:20. Mears shuttle to All Star Music. Dinner at the Magic Kingdom. Hopefully an e-ride night, and then off to Pleasure Island to close the joint.
Saturday: Animal Kingdom, Epcot (to preview the new Mission:Space attraction!), Downtown Disney and Pleasure Island.
Sunday: MGM and maybe another trip to DtD. Mears picks us up at 2:00…flight out of Orlando at 4ish. Back home at 7ish. Hope to be in apartment before David goes to work. 🙂

(ads still not #($&# converted…one more try)

ANd now…the Friday Five!

1. What time do you wake up on weekday mornings?
Alarm goes off at 3:30ish. I try to be out of bed before 4.

2. Do you sleep in on the weekends? How late?
Absolutely! Depending on how late I stay up, I’ll sleep in until 9:30. But my eyes will always open at 5:30 am. I just have to slam them shut again.

3. Aside from waking up, what is the first thing you do in the morning?
Use the loo and get weighed.

4. How long does it take to get ready for your day?
If I shower and blow out my hair the night before, and know what I’m wearing, I can be out of the apartment in about 20 minutes. If none of the above happens, it takes me about 45 minutes.

5. When possible, what is your favorite place to go for breakfast?
Since our Perkins closed, I’ve become quite a fan of Old Country Buffet.
