Is there life outside of Disney? If so, I don't want to know about it.

I won a disney vacation!

I am typically a lurker, but decided to share some exciting news on the boards. I entered a contest on a blog called Mr. Food for a 5 day/4 night vacation and won!! I can't believe I won! All expenses are paid, including airfare, and a gift card is included for expenses. I am going with my best friend and her children. We are waiting to tell the children (10yo girl and 12 yo boy) until a week before our vacation! Can't wait to see their faces. We do not know when we are going, waiting to be contacted from someone at Disney. I was too excited and needed to share with others who would appreciate my excitement over this prize!

Awesome news, Nicole! Congratulations!

I just need to win the lottery in order to have enough time off and money for my Disney fixes. That's all.
