Sometimes I'd rather live in VMK than in real life!

Mr. and Mrs. Weak Sauce Go the Distance (a completed Disneymoon TR!)
Welcome to my DISNEYMOON trip report! It's really insane that throughout my TRs, I have gone from using DBF, DFi, and now DH when referring to my guy!
A few things you should know about us:
1. I'm Rachel, a 27-year old English Language Arts and math middle school teacher. He's Howard, a 26-year old multimedia/audiovisual technician at his former college. We don't like being the center of attention, and neither of us dance very well even though I like spontaneously breaking out into dance (just not in front of a huge group of people!).
Haha, I look like I'm doing the robot! Howard is not sure what to do!
2. We live to eat as opposed to eating to live. Seriously, food is just plain ol' GOOD! Now that we're married, our plan is to eat out only once a month because we want to save money. On top of that, having our own kitchen and going to buy our own groceries means that we have so many options at our fingertips for so much less! For example, I made chicken and cheese quesadillas served with homemade guacamole and salsa yesterday. There's absolutely NO need to ever get quesadillas from restaurants ever again!
This was during cocktail hour. We were separate from everyone else since we spent time to take photos with the bridal party. We got a plate of some of the hor d'ouvres in the bridal suite.
3. We enjoy being wacky and goofy with each other. We are very entertained by our silly antics, and we can crack up about almost anything. Case in point, we are watching episodes of 24 right now because Jack Bauer is just awesome (I only recently got hooked!), but we make the show even more awesome by adding in our own lines for the characters in the midst of watching it! There were clearly a million things that were great about this trip, and I can't wait to share just a fraction of them with you (cuz well, I decided to forego the whole trip journal thing and relax instead!).
Having the best man sign our marriage license as one of our witnesses.
Before I end this brief introduction, I just wanted to explain the trip report title. Howard and I were so excited to be back to Disney so quickly since our last trip (we went in April with my parents and younger brother). We had plans to get to the parks for rope drop and then return to the resort for a nap before heading back out at night. We purposely bought annual passes since the cost of our April trip tickets plus 7-day park hoppers for our honeymoon was actually MORE than annual passes (and you gotta love all the discounts with APs!). Well, the stress from planning the wedding and the wedding itself apparently took a toll on us because we were EXHAUSTED and ended up sleeping a ton! We couldn't push ourselves like we usually do during our trips because there was no way we'd last for the rest of the week. We started saying that we were "weak sauce" (I have students who use that phrase). As for the "go the distance" part of it, we actually heard the song from Hercules being played during our trip a few times! It's THE song that Howard had to sing in our church's 2008 coffeehouse before we got back together. I loved watching him, and I really knew I wanted to get back together with him. Later on, I'll even have a video of when we heard it while walking in Downtown Disney!
I know I didn't give much in terms of details, but at this point, all you need to know is that Howard's my best friend, and I was very ready to start our first adventure, just the two of us!
One of my favorite photos from our photographers because it just captures the happiness that we're finally married and the relief that the ceremony is done!
