We're All MAD here! SPAZZ hands, cupcakes, booze, and running...GSC Feb. 2015 PTR

Hmm, What color for this report?!?

I could be completely MAD and type in rainbow every time, but even I don't have that much time!

For those of you that don't know me, I'm a serial Pre-trip and trip reporter (hence the huge list in my signature!).

My name is Karen and I'm a 41 year old mother of 3, homeschooler of just 1 now!(wah! they are growing up to fast!), runner, and I run my own petsitting business. Rey is my husband, I've stopped counting the years we've been together, 23?? Dylan is 19, Dallas is 18, and Savannah is 13. I've converted my whole family to my Disneyloving ways but this trip is solo! It will be my first solo trip! I've done smaller trips with just Rey and just Savannah but this time it's just me, myself and I! I should still post a photo of my family, I would feel bad if I didn't.



I just got back from running the Princess Half Marathon, my first half marathon.



SPAZZ HANDS!! That's what we call Spirit fingers and Jazz hands. If you have no clue what I'm talking about, start here:
Jazz hands or Spirit fingers? The great debate.

We have settled on Spazz hands after calling them jazzirit hands for a while as well...and I reserve the right to call them whatever I want in the future...you never know, I might have an epiphany after a few drinks and come up with an even better name.

Savannah & a friend came with me to the PHM. We had a fantastic trip!!! Yes, I wore the tiara nearly the whole time.


I knew going into the half marathon this year that in 2015 I would want to do the Glass Slipper Challenge (10K and the half). If you want to read more about my Princess Half trip, you can read about it here:

"The WILDEST Ride in the Wilderness!" Princess Half Marathon TR/Feb. 2014

Sooooo, this trip I am CRAZYEXCITED to get some time to myself to run! and drink! and eat cupcakes! I will NOT be alone, however! First and foremost, I am sharing a room with my sisterfromanothermister, Nicole. Or Dum. Or Jazzirit. Or Dumjazz. You can call her any of these things. I'm not being mean, she's going to be TweedleDum and I'm going to be TweedleDee for the 10K. I didn't make her pick Dum, I swear.

Here she is in a lovely selfie, showing off the shirts we are wearing in the parks after the 10K. Yes, I'm a pillow-stuffed Cheshire cat!

AND...when I uploaded the photo, photobucket decided it should be upside down. I could have easily fixed this, but we're all MAD here, so I didn't...





I crack myself up.

I'm sure you can tell that there's a bit of an Alice in Wonderland theme going on. Why, you ask? It's a PRINCESS HALF MARATHON. Well, because I want to, naturally! More explanation on this later!

Nicole and I are sharing the room with another runner that Nicole knows. Her name is Lindy...and I can only remember her name by thinking CINDY (Cinderella) and THEN switching the C to an L.

We are planning on mucho fun and craziness for the weekend and are also going to do a cupcake crawl with Tammie and some other cupcake runners! You can find more info about that here:
PHM 2015-In Pursuit of Cupcakes While Running in Glass Slippers

Oh, I'm a photographer, so there will be MANY photos, I like to update my PTR's with plans for the trip as well as whatever is going on in my life right now and definitely my training as well. I have a way of just going on and on...and a really bad habit of putting EVERYTHING in my intro. Ah well! That's how I roll!

I should stop now before I tell you my whole life story...

Dear Dee,

I'M FIRST.

SPAZZ JAZZIRIT

Love, Dum

Edited: Becasue I really wanted to be FIRST and so didn't read before I replied. Thanks for the upside selfie picture. I mean that's about how I take selfies- so it's pretty accurate.

Also, do you watch Always Sunny in Philidelpia? Awesome, funny show.. they call the sister "Sweet D". I think I am christening you that. "Sweet D"

SPAZZZ-A-JAZZIRIT!!!!!!!!!!

(can you see me running across the room while I scream that flailing my arms?!?! Good, b/c I'm not really doing that. I don't want my family to commit me. They don't need much more proof at this point.

Sweet D. Cute. Now I'm going to have to go watch it.

I'm.so.crazy.excited! Is it 10 months yet?!?!?!? (said in my best little kid are-we-there-yet voice)

If you have Netflix- all seasons are on there.. it's about the most inapporpriate show ever. And wildly hilarious.

I AM going to do a post today. I think I pulled myself out of my funk.

Haha, I seriously doubt it's the most inappropriate show ever...I have watched just about everything. Game of thrones? I don't blink an eye at inappropriate stuff!

YAY for getting out of the funk! You are fast, I stay in them for months.

Tweedle-Throwback-Thursday! Nicole had posted a shot of her with the Tweedles and I thought I would find the one shot I have with them and do the same!

Nicole & I are dressing as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum for the Enchanted 10K, if you missed that.



That was 2008, my first trip every to WDW, at MNSSHP.

I'm pretty excited to be Tweedles with Nicole. Ok, pretty excited is kind of an understatement!

Our costumes are already being worked on and we are going to be the cutest Tweedles you have ever seen. We will have to work on our poses, I suppose!

Another from 2008, my friend (who took us to WDW and began my obsession with Disney!) and I...


you'll have to excuse the photo quality, these are both from 2008 before I got my camera and got serious about photography. In fact, that 2008 trip is what pushed me into photography (I was really unhappy with the fireworks photos from this trip)

Dee and Dum will be very cute! I love rawthreads! Are those the shirts that you will be wearing as a part of your costume?
