::You're going back AGAIN?!? Our February Family Trip! HOUSE update 4/1!!!::



We're back, again!!! For those of you who haven't read my previous trip reports (check out my siggie!), I just very recently finished up our First Anniversary Trip Report, RIGHT before we left for this trip!! When we were getting ready to leave, I heard OVER and OVER, "You're going BACK to Disney????? You were just there!" Yes, we were. My parents and my DH and myself got season passes back in October, so yes, we have gotten our use and money's worth out of them already! And we're not done yet!!

I feel like I've introduced myself over and over, but just in case, I'll do it again!

I'm Hillary, 26 years old, graduate student living in Augusta, Georgia. I'm graduating in May with my Master's in Education, for School Counseling. I'm currently interning as a counselor at a local middle school and I'm just in love with it. I love the people I work with and the kids there. I truly love going to work every day!!

DH-Andy. Also 26 (as of yesterday!), works as a Network Administrator (aka computer geek) for the Department of Energy.

I have been going to Disney since I was like 3, we had season passes a few times when I was in middle/high school, so I grew up in a Disney family. My family had a camper for many years, and again now, so many of my trips were spent at Fort Wilderness Campground. It's "home" to me.

DH had never been to Disney, until May 2007. We went with my parents over Mother's Day weekend to Fort Wilderness, knowing we'd be back in December for our HONEYMOON at Wilderness Lodge!!! Our honeymoon TR is in my siggie! Then, after we got home I began planning our anniversary trip for the following December!! We stayed a week this past December at All Star Sports, Old Key West, and Pop! Before that though, we spent my mom's birthday at Disney, and also went to MNNSHP, a first for us! All great trips. And then we were just there in February, for a random, Fort Wilderness trip!! Lots of fun!!

I mentioned in my previous TR that I did not take a ton of pictures, as usual. We relaxed a good bit, and I just didn't pressure myself to catch everything in pictures. But I still have a good many, and look forward to sharing it all with you again! I love writing these trip reports, and having everyone else enjoy them and read along with me!

And just as a visual, our cast of characters...

Me and DH (from our anniversary trip)



and my parents!






And just on a personal note, as I've written about in my previous TR, DH and I very recently bought a house!! We actually close on it tommorow (Monday) morning! So we've been very busy with that, which is why I'm just now starting this TR, typically I'd have started already! I've been packing all weekend, we don't actually start moving though until Sunday, so I'm about to go crazy with anticipation. So, this will occupy me some! But just wanted to throw that out there, since I probably wont be as fast with the updates as usual!

Thanks for reading in advance! First installment coming next!

Thanks SO much for joining in everyone!!! I'm so glad I have interested readers-I'll try not to keep you waiting too long. And actually, I had typed out most of the first installment the other night, and then something happened and it didn't post. I was SO MAD, that's what I get for not typing it in Word first. I just haven't had a chance to re-do it yet!! I will soon, I promise!!

The closing yesterday went fabulous, much faster and easier than I imagined!! I'm SO ready to move now, Sunday morning cannot get here fast enough!! But luckily, I guess, its a BUSY week, I've been busy at work, had a meeting at school last night and then class tommorow night, so this week will fly by, and then we're going to Charleston, SC for a wedding all day Saturday so that will help. I've been packing all evening, our little apartment is beginning to look sad and empty, but at least I'm feeling more accomplished! I still have a loooong way to go, but I'm getting there!!

Thanks again for reading and being patient with me!!
