Oh, you're definitely a Gator!

And I saw your note in the post about programs...I didn't have any and no one seemed to notice!

I was beginning to think you disappeared on us. Glad you are back! How have you been? Did you find a solution to the caramel apples or some other yummy treat? I am sure you will come up with an amazing idea. Rice krispie treats are always fun!

Princess Marathon Weekend Plans!

Happy Fat Tuesday lovelies!

I don’t have a wedding related update today but I am here to fill you in our plans for our Disney Princess Marathon Weekend!!

I’m so pumped but nervous at the same time.. I haven’t run in awhile. Thankfully we’re only doing the 5k so we should be okay.. but still! We do the run/walk/Galloway method—love it!

So, here it is:

Friday: my mom, daddy, and I are leaving first thing in the morning! It will take us about 2.5 hours to get to the Happiest Place on Earth!
As soon as we arrive, we’re hitting the race expo! I’m so so so excited to see all of the merchandise here and just get HYPE about the race!

We don’t have anything else planned as I know how crazy and time consuming the race expos can be. So, after we’re done shopping (my poor pookie will have to find something to do while my mom and I break the bank…) we’re heading over to AK Kidani to check in! It’s one of the race resorts and we get complimentary transportation to the 5k the next morning.

We have an ADR at Boatwright’s at POR for Friday evening! We wanted to try something new and really liked this menu.. I’ll review in my mini-TR!

Saturday: 5k day!! We will be getting up probably around 4:30 or 5am to get ready and catch the bus to EPCOT. I’m so excited!

The Princess Marathon is a BIG deal in terms of costumes, or so I’ve heard. Apparently, the majority of women DO dress up for the races! We decided we’d keep it simple and wear tutus.

Faith Fact: I danced from age 4-18 so I have a TON of dance costumes (saving them for my own dress up purposes and for a possible little baby girl!). We dragged those out from under my bed and went to town!

At first we thought we’d wear full on costumes (totally kidding—this was never a possibility but we wanted to try them on and be silly)

Here’s mom being Belle:

And, here I am as Princess Peach (not a dance costume):


Pretty, huh?

Then we decided we’d keep it simple and just wear tutus…



Oh, and here’s the cat.. she’s not running but she wanted to wear a tutu too.. :

We’ll be wearing shorts and running attire but I’m so thrilled to be wearing this tutu too!

Back to the plans:
We’ll run/walk/crawl the race, I’ll update Facebook (holla!) and text my twin/fellow marathon love Shannon.

After, we’ll head back to AKL Kidani to get cleaned up before we hit the parks!! We aren’t sure which one to go to yet.. we know we’re going to skip MK since Max and I were just there but haven’t narrowed down the decision any further.

We have an ADR at 5:30 at Jiko so we’ll either leave the park and go back later or just cancel the reservation sometime this week in case we’re worried about park time!

Sunday: Up early for a hair trial with Beaute Speciale! They’re coming from 8-10am to make me look beautiful, dahling! Let’s hope they can!

I’m using the same hair inspiration picture from before and crossing my fingers it turns out the way I’m hoping.

After, we’ll check out (so sad!) and grab lunch at Mimi’s Café (off-property) before heading home. We LOVE Mimi’s Café. There are none around us so we always stop by when we’re in Orlando!

I appreciate any pixie dust you can send our way for the 5k!

Also, I need MAJOR pixie dust for my Modern Middle East midterm on Thursday! I’m freaking out yet can’t bring myself to study… bad!

Thanks for reading along everyone! I’ll post a mini-TR upon our return!

-So glad it's not just me with all the old dance costumes! And hey, I have that same shirt from Threadless!

-I love the expression on your cat's face

-Mmm...Mimi's Cafe. I miss them! Have a carrot muffin for me?

-Good luck and sending lots and lots of pixie dust! You're a smart cookie and you're going to do just fine!

Oh, I can't wait to see the results of your hair trial! I'm supremely jealous that you are local and get the dry run

You are going to do SO great at the 5K! It's so cool that you and your Mom get the chance to do that together. And having all of those awesome dance outfits to chose from, NICE! I just started training for my own that I will be running in April, but there is no dress up. You've inspired me though, maybe I'll just show up in my own tutu

OMG, I'm dying over the princess kitty picture!

You and your mom are so cute! I think you'll look adorable with your tutus running. Have fun together.

Yay for AK, I love it there now. It is my new fave place, so relaxing.

Good luck on your midterm, I'm sure you'll rock it.

Love the costumes! People definitely dress up to race! You'll see everything from full out costumes, to just plain running clothes. I'm so jealous you're going to be wearing tutus!!! I want to wear one so badly, but the friend I'm running with won't wear one. It was pulling teeth to get her to wear a tiara! Maybe I'll see you there!
