The one who started it - DIS ladies do DLR
Well, I never said I wasn't insane. I just don't want them thinking that

Evil Clowns? Mickey Mouse? Divas? And turning 40!? Be afraid, be very afraid!

I'm all dressed up with nowhere to go,
Walkin' with a dead man over my shoulder.
Waiting for an invitation to arrive,
Goin' to a party where no one's still alive.
It's a dead man's party
Who could ask for more
Everybody's comin', leave your body at the door
Leave your body and soul at the door . . .

Hello everyone out there in trip report land.
According to the ticker in my signature, I am now exactly one month away from my birthday/Halloween trip so I thought it might be fun to get started on a pre-trip report.

I am really looking forward to this trip. Anyone who knows me even a little bit, knows I love Halloween. It's my favorite time of the year. Which makes Fall my favorite season, and October my favorite month. In addition to Halloween, my birthday is also in October.
Now, as I've gotten older, birthdays have become less and less of a big deal to me. This year? I'm turning............(gasp)... 40. Yep, the big Four-Oh.

I haven't decided if this is going to be an issue for me yet or not. Is 40 when people are supposed to have some sort of mid-life, self-reflective, life changing epiphany? Or is that when you turn 50? I can never remember. See, the memory is already starting to go....
In any case, I thought what better way to celebrate such a milestone event in my life than with a trip to Disneyland! Can't worry about anything too deep when your screaming your lungs out on Splash Mountain or Tower of Terror, right?

So off to Disney it is. Well, not right this minute, but soon. In the meantime, I hope you will join me in celebrating the best holiday ever. Oh yeah, and the fact that I'm getting old.
Get comfy, grab some pizza and beer. (yes, I realize it's only 9 a.m., but haven't you heard; it's 5 o'clock somewhere.)

Help yourself to a sweet treat, and welcome aboard!

And you are....?? Introducing who's going on this trip.
Where are we going and what the heck are we doing?? Day one plans.
Who's ready to party with Mickey?! Day two plans.
Park time!! Day three plans.
Now it's time to say good bye. Day four plans.

And you are....? (Introductions)

They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
The Addams Family.

Okay, time for introductions. First up...ME!

My name is Beth. I am a SAHM to four wonderful kids, Adam, Noelle, Lindsey and Hannah, and married to my high school sweetheart, Ruben.
I've been on the DIS since 2005, and as you can see from my post count, I talk way too much.
I'm also lucky enough to be part of a group nicknamed the "DIS Divas". Back in 2008, myself and a bunch of other DIS ladies got together to take a trip to Disneyland. Total strangers who met on the internet, deciding to take a vacation together. Pretty much everything you warn your kids not to do.
It was a blast and has since become an annual event. For the next Diva trip, which is in February 2012, we already have over 60 ladies signed up to go. The trip is open to all females age 18 and up, so if you are interested, take a peek:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2754704 It's really a lot of fun, and the Divas are a great group of ladies.

Anyway, here I am enjoying a fruity drink at Trader Sam's this past summer. Apparently I felt this was a fancy drink, because I appear to have my pinky finger raised.

For this trip, I will be leaving my loving family behind. (Aaaahhhh! Mommy guilt!) The kids are growing up, and missing school is more of a challenge, so my husband has agreed to take off work and be home with them while I go play. Why yes, I do think he's wonderful. I will miss them all, but we have a family trip planned for July 2012 so they have that to look forward to.
Even though they won't be with me this time, here is a photo of the loves of my life:

Although my family won't be there, a girl can't celebrate her birthday alone, so alone I shall not be! I've got wonderful friends who have agreed to join me for some Halloween fun that weekend. It's been far too long since I've seen some of them because we all met through the DIS Diva trips, and live in different parts of the U.S. and Canada. It's going to be great to see them again!

Without further ado, introducing, my friends, partners in crime, and fellow Divas:







Mary Jo/Mary Jo








Hmmm, hopefully I didn't leave anyone out. But there ya have it, the cast of characters for this adventure.
Up next..... what the heck are we doing and where are we going?
