Celebrating Comfort and Joy ~ Early December 2012 *UPDATED 11/25*(LifeUpdate 11/28)

A Little bit about the trip and the reason for the title.

We are celebrating comfort of staying at DVC for the first time as members.

We are also celebrating Joy, my mom and dad will be making Guest apperances as they will be down at the same time as us. (Last Year, my sister gave my parents a week at Disney, Resort Only, for Christmas. My mom picked the week of her birthday.) I am taking Mom, whose name is Joy, for her 65th birthday to the Tea at the Grand Floridian.

We are very excited for this trip. It's our first trip during Christmastime.

Judy! Aww thank you.

Thank you, I loved making it of course my mom and sister helped some.

Awww, I am so excited that we are going in December. I got a teaser when we did a family reunion trip in 2003 Thanksgiving week and that was it, I wanted to be there one year in December.

Thank you, Im so lucky to have a DH who loves Disney too and wants to see Annabelle love it as well.

Ok I do have another goal in mind before we leave for our trip and I figure if I post it here, I will make myself accountable!

I want to lose 33 pounds... I have a little over 6 months to achieve this, so if I really buckle down maybe I can.

I will be honest and say I can not stop drinking soda or cut out all my sweets... that would never work for me.

My plan is to tho
1) Cut way back on my soda and drink more water.
2) Eat better in general, more veggies and fruits, less processed foods
3) Do Zumba on the Kinect while Annabelle naps
4) Be more active in general, less sitting around more walking around

Hopefully this will help me slowly lose weight over time.



I will be doing updates on how I am doing, maybe every other week.

No real update just trying to keep busy so I do not freak out, half the state of Virginia including the county I live in is under a tornado watch and I HATE storms! If you live in an area under severe weather alert please be careful and if not please pray for those who are.

Although I am worried. I am very thankful I live in actual house and not a trailer now.

Praying for those under alert!
