Talking Two castles, f&w, Boo to You and a babymoon! Our oct 2012 pre-trippie!

Hello. I'm Anna and I work at home. I've been married for six years to a great guy named Kenny; hence the username.

Last year was a rough year for us, capped off with an infertility diagnosis. But we refuse to give up and our RE (Reproductive Endocriniologist) has given us some real hope. We are also celebrating my husband's promotion! I am one proud wife!

So, after some false starts, we are going to pick up where we left off last fall and try again. We're going to do the trip we wanted to do last fall. Our trip is Oct. 25-Nov. 2. We are planning to stay three days off property outside of Universal and also visit Sea World. I want to visit the Orlando Prime Outlet Mall. I looove shopping!

On the 28, we will be heading to WDW for five days to stay at the new Art of Animation Resort in the Little Mermaid Room. For this part, we have 4 day PH tickets and DXDP.

We are hoping to just cut loose and have some fun, but are also hoping for the best. *fingers crossed.*

Here's a recent pic of me:

I bleached out my dark hair. It was dyed jet black....a visual remnant of infertility.

And here is my hubby with his other baby. lol

So I'll keep you updated. I have my own youtube channel and if anyone is interested, I can provide a link. I will be vlogging on our trip.

Till next time, have a magical day!

So after tweaking our plans, this is what I have come up with:

Oct. 25--flight to MCO
dinner at Citywalk. I'm not sure where yet. Kenny likes Jimmy Buffet, so maybe Margaritaville. But we may find some neat unknown place on the way.

Oct. 26--Seaworld day. I've never been to SW and have always wanted to see it.
Mythos that evening, along with another visit to WWOHP. Kenny wants to see Jurassic Park. I want to see the Dr. Seuss area. It looks really cute.

While we're staying off-property, I want to check out the Orlando Prime Outlet Mall and see how much damage I can do. lol. I am putting money back just for shopping there. I want to visit the Coach outlet and CCO (a makeup outlet). Believe it or not, I'm a very smart shopper; I can take a set amount and get a ton of stuff.
Oct. 27--Universal Studios day. We plan to see Shrek and The Simpsons ride. He'll ride roller coasters. I want to get photos of the park.
That evening, we have our first Disney dinner reservations at House of Blues at 7 p.m. We will have our Downtown Disney night then.

Oct. 28--We leave our hotel and check into Art of Animation Resort.

Magic Kingdom morning
Crystal Palace 9:35
Yachtsman Steakhouse 5:45 p.m.
Fantasmic and Disney Studios EMH night

Oct. 29--
AK EMH morning
Boma 10:50 a.m.
California Grill 9:15 p.m. (Wishes!)

Oct. 30--
Epcot EMH morning
Akershus 9:35 a.m.
Rose and Crown 7:50 p.m. (Illuminations....I hope we get a table)

Oct. 31--
Ohana 10:35 a.m. I have a headband and lei that matches Lilo's!
Chef Mickey's 6:20 p.m.
I think I'm going as Minnie. I have a pair of black leggings with a cute plaid skirt and a sparkly Minnie mouse ears. He'll go as himself. Or maybe a Mouseketeer.

Nov. 1--The start of National Epilepsy Awareness month. I will have on purple because that's our color. I have had Epilepsy for 16 years and although the journey through treatment has been rough, I wouldn't change a thing.

This is our last full day at WDW. We will be relaxing a lot and we will go back to Epcot one last time before we go. It's my favorite park.

Via Napoli 2 p.m.
Jiko 8:05

Nov. 2--
Cape May 9:35

Go home

So that's what I have so far. I'll keep you updated. Have a magical day!

I note about my youtube videos...my travel dates change frequently due to TTC and circumstances beyond my control. As it stands now, we are going Oct. 25-Nov. 2 to Universal/WDW as a couple and I may go to Disneyland before the end of the year before I have my possible fertility surgery.

Tuesday, I go in for my MRI for fertility and am hoping for some good news there. *crosses fingers* Before we go, I have to have my mother take up my pants....again. (She's a seamstress part time. She enjoys doing it so I don't have to buy new clothes all the time.) I've lost quite a bit of weight in the past year and keep needing to take up my clothes. lol.

I had the MRI today and it was scary, but doable. Now just to wait for the results....

I purchased my flights today with gift cards from my boss and some I had saved up. Also put a camera on layaway for our trip! All in all, I got a lot done!

The results are in and they are......


Oh I was so happy!!!! I cried for two days. Happy tears.

We have decided to do room only instead at AoA since a travel company I do contract work for is picking up the tab for food and tickets!!!! So it actually works out much better!!!!!

I'll keep you updated as things develop....
