I'm finally here, TK! Five days before you leave!

I so enjoyed reading all your travel plans and will enjoy living vicariously through your trip even more! It sounds completely blissful!

The Wendy costume is so cute! Great job on that!

So glad to hear you like the Merrells and you know they will work!

I think we have the same taste in snack ideas! Almost all the same things you've mentioned wanting to try are all the same things I've missed or would like to sample. Oh, except a dole whip! I've never had one of those either, or a Mickey bar!

What protein bars do you like? Mackenzie and I really like the Balance bars and the new one's we REALLY like are the think thin bars. No sugar, but sugar alcohols, doesn't spike your insulin levels, which in turn doesn't put the fat on! The body is a funny thing when it comes to processed sugar. Not that I never have it, but while I'm losing this weight I'm very careful to avoid it 98% of the time. It's the #1 killer to any person's weight loss success.

Ooo, we've got to get you to try a Dole Whip. They're like heaven in a cup. My favorite is the Pineapple Dole Whip Float. It is soooo refreshing on a hot day!

I don't know if I have seen the Think Thin bars. I'll have to look for them the next time I'm at a store.

I like a couple different kinds for different things. Larabars (which are vegan) are a great snack. And my toddler loves them, which is awesome. I like Clif Bars as a breakfast, and I got a couple of those for my trip in case I'm hungry on the airplane. I don't eat a big breakfast, so they're enough for breakfast (sometimes even too much) or they can tide me over pretty well in lieu of a meal if need be. I also eat the MetRx bars, which are a full meal replacement bar. They really help me lose weight, because I'll substitute a meal with the bar, but I do get sick of that eventually. Out of all of those, the Clif Bars are probably my favorite, because they're organic and don't taste overly processed.

Bet you didn't know you were going to get that whole diatribe, huh?

4 Days and 4 Ways...

in which I woke up in a total panic.

1. OMG. My trip is four days away.

2. When will I find the time to pack?

3. Do I have everything I need?

4. WHEN WILL I FIND THE TIME TO PACK?????



So I woke up this morning a bit panicked. Not that I didn't know it was coming, obviously, but I am really getting down to the wire here. I've spent this morning dumping memory cards and trying to decide whether or not I need a spare with me.

There are some items that aren't on my packing list and I keep forgetting to write them down. I think I'm just going to go grab them...you know what, I'm putting it here. Jack Sparrow fabric backpack and Imagineer's Guide to the Magic Kingdom.

Ha! There!

If it's on the DIS, I have to remember. I've pretty much got my outfits worked out and did laundry yesterday. It's just a matter this morning of making sure that my...ahem...unmentionables are dry enough to pack.

I think I've already mentioned that I have a wedding shower today which I'm really excited for. I've know my friend since we were four years old, so it's pretty cool to be part of this and the fact that we are still friends after all these years!

As a result, I totally had to paint my toes last night, because they were hideous! My nail polish was chipping off. Bad, bad, bad TK. So my Absolutely Alice (sparkly blue nail polish that OPI based on Alice in Wonderland) had to go, and I introduce you to...



I'm All Ears! One of the newer OPI Disney colors. I think it's a Minnie Mouse collection? One of my friends bought the color for me, as she knows I'm going to Disney and just wanted to give me a little surprised. So sweet! And I love that I have a totally new color for this trip.

Looks red in the photo but it's more of a sparkly fuchsia. Not my typical M.O. for nail color, but honestly, reminds me a LOT of my mom. And I'm thinking that's pretty cool.

So I'm off dear friends. To pack and organize and get my act together.

But before I go, let's do the four day dance!






Update: I am packed except for last minute items. Woo hoo!!!!!!

Hope you had/are having fun at the shower. I LOVE the nail polish. I got my done Thursday night with The Color of Minnie, a nice Minnie red.

I can't believe how close you are, which means I'm right behind you. Hope all your "unmentionables" are dry enough to pack

Those are the new shoes! I've been wearing them around the house and they're pretty nice.

The shower was great. And I really mean it. Sometimes showers make you groan inside, but this one was a lot of fun.

Yay! We are both sporting Minnie colors.

Isn't it neat when you can measure your trip and how close it's getting by someone else's? Well, this DIS friend leaves in so many days, so I leave then. So much fun to count down!

And oddly enough, the umentionables were fine, but a couple pair of jean shorts are KILLING me. I'm hoping they'll be dry enough by tomorrow as I think they're pretty much my last clothing items.

Bummer! Thanks for the heads up.

Nope. They know Mama is going away from Thursday to Sunday. That's pretty much it.

Thank you! It is soooo pink. Like, PINK. LOL But I like it. Sometimes it's good to go out of your comfort zone and have something different.

I did, it was wonderful. I'm so looking forward to the wedding now.
