A Few of My Favorite Things, A Race, & Scrapbook Pages Too!


This TR is going to be a little different than other trip reports. One of the things I enjoy most about planning at trip to WDW is thinking about all the things that I looking most forward to. My plan for this TR is to start off getting us to WDW and then switch from we did this, then we did this to going back through my PTR list of the things I was looking most forward to on my trip and reflect on those things& and then get us home again.


My Favorite Things:

26. Mickey Bar
25. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
24. Boma/Animal Kingdom Lodge
23. Tower of Terror (ToT)
22. Fall Funnel Cake at Sleepy Hollow
21. PeopleMover
20. Be Our Guest (BOG)
19. Caribbean Beach Resort
18. Fall Decorations & Stroll down Main Street
17. New Test Track
16. Tusker House
15. Philharmagic
14. Villain Party
13. Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Nobody faint! I FINALLY got this TR completed and Tammie - it's beautiful. I'm so proud of you and what you accomplished and the inspiration you've provided for others, as Susan stated in your TR, is real!

Your final thoughts are spot on and you've graciously embraced all the triumphs and adversities provided to you through this experience.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger... WAY TO GO!!!

OMG...I did pass out for a second when I saw who posted!

Been missing you my friend and wish we would have had the moment at the finish line that I was dreaming off. But all things happen for a purpose...still it does not make it hurt any less.

Are you ready to find out what doesn't kill will make you stronger?

Thank you for sharing that TR! I absolutely loved how you layed it all out & am completely awed by your ability to get that many scrap pages done so soon. I have completely ONE from my W&D race in November. (it's in my Nov Wine & Dine TR) and nothing else.

I cried reading your race journey- it brought back the memories of my own. It was such a long, hard battle for me to cross that finish line & the journey it took to get there..... I cried like a baby when I crossed the finish. You can see in my finish line pictures I'm just bawling.....

It's a amazing journey isn't it? One we should all be so proud of! Congrats -belated- on ToT.. and FANTASTIC job on the scrappages- I really enjoyed looking at all those (I think I own every single one of those kits, btw!)

That is the great thing about going digital...I actually get pages done. I tend to have sleep issues and between midnight and 5 am I get a lot done. I was determined to have this album done when the TR was done!

Thank you...I have shed way too many tears over this whole trip. I too cried like a baby, I just wish I would have gotten a great finish line shot. I really need to go and look through all the race pictures but just really have not felt like it. I know how I felt...I don't think those emotions will ever leave. What a great feeling to accomplish the goal you set out to do...

It's a amazing journey isn't it? One we should all be so proud of! Congrats -belated- on ToT.. and FANTASTIC job on the scrappages- I really enjoyed looking at all those (I think I own every single one of those kits, btw!)
Nicole...I hope this gave you some idea what to expect for ToT. I am so excited for you! And will be cheering you on in your next race!
