Wow - your running outfits are super cute - great idea to do that. I am so impressed that you are running two races. Granted, I only run when chased so I am impressed with anyone that enjoys/is good at running.

That picture of Belle is definitely creepy - it's like your iphone stitched together 2 pictures and the cutoff point was right where her hand was for the first pic

That's great that Rob noticed you and called out to you and you had a nice spur of the moment DISmeet!

Ugh, never fun when you go too long without eating and start to feel sick! Glad you had your ADR to rely on! All your character pics are so cute!!

The Candleight Processional looks so nice! It must have been so cool having Sigourney Weaver as the narrator!

Ah love all your pics of the lights! One day I will be there to see them myself! When I went last January I JUST missed them.

Good luck with your race!!!

Great updates!

I love your photos of the YC Christmas decorations -- they put them up shortly after we left, so we missed out. The village is so cool --- we are slowly building one, but we just don't have room!!

SAI lunch looks good -- I love avocado, so those tacos look pretty perfect.

Fun DIS meet!!

And that Belle photo is crazy!!!

YOU ARE IN DISNEY RIGHT NOW. WHAT WHAT. That's awesome. I've been stalking all the merchandise from the Expo and I want everything. It's almost motivating me to start running...almost.

Haha we also were the first ones in the Animation building over Thanksgiving. Hehe whoops.

Ahh your Olaf looks amazing! I really really hope I can draw him at some point. He's one of my favorite characters ever.

I got that mug with hot chocolate, it's so adorable.

We have a Cinderella Castle for our Christmas village, but that's it since they are pretty pricey.

I really wish I could have seen the Beach Club gingerbread carousel! Your pictures are great!

Oh my gosh...what happened in that photo?! Regardless, I'm really loving the signed Vinylmation. It looks so cool.

AHH ROB IN THE NO DANCING SHIRT! So awesome that you guys got to meet!

I'm sorry that I'm soooooo late to the party! But I just read through your whole TR!! - and I LOVED every bit of it! Seeing all of your pics of WDW at Christmastime, gahhh! Totally awesome and making me super excited for our next trip! It sounds like you and your parents had such a magical time.

And yay for being in Disney RIGHT NOW!! I hope your race went well! I can't wait to hear about it! And I can't wait to hear when you are going back... if you decide to do the Wine & Dine half marathon, that's when we'll be there!

How cool that you got to draw Olaf!! Yours came out great!

Love the Chrismas mug!

Such cute pics with Belle and Alice! Minus the creepy iphone moment, how does that even happen!

YAY for a dismeet with Rob

Just followed you on IG, I can't wait to hear about the race!!

Thank you! I loved how they came out! And spoiler alert, they held up great!

I'm one of those weirdos who actually likes to run

Super eerie! I've never seen my phone do that!

I'm so happy he saw me! It was a wonderful first DISmeet!

Ahh its the worst, and it always seems to happen to me once a trip, I just get too distracted! The characters made it all better, they were all wonderful!

Its a fabulous show! I highly recommend it, its so festive and magical!

You have to go at Christmas sometime! It's SO magical!

Aww that's a bummer, they were fabulous over at the YC! I can understand, villages take up so much space. I have all of my houses crammed onto a sofa table.

Me too, its my absolute favorite and yes those tacos were perfect!

That photo is super creepy, I need to stop looking at it, its weirding me out but I can't help it

You totally should start running! RunDisney events were my motivation and it totally exceeded my expectations! Everything at the expo was so cute, I almost went broke

We will start a trend, everyone will start running there instead of TSM

Thank you! He was super fun to draw, and so doable. He's the only one I have hung up in my office.

I used it all the time at home, definitely worth the purchase!

Oooh I'm so jealous of your village Castle! That must look so cool!

Thank you! The carousel might have been my favorite of all the deluxe resorts we toured, it was so cool that it worked!

I love my vinylmation, he's on my desk at work, I love being able to see all the signatures all the time.

So happy I ran into him!

Welcome! And thank you so much I've really enjoyed writing it!

WDW at Christmas is the absolute best! You guys will have an amazing time!

Eventually I will get to my trip report from this past trip! I had such a wonderful time and it was SO magical and fun! I want to do Wine and Dine SO bad! Registration opens soon so I need to decide asap.

So cute and so worth the money, I used it so much in December!

Belle and Alice were both so adorable, I'm so glad I got to meet them!

So fun to meet Rob, I felt like I met a celebrity or something haha.

I can't wait to share about the race! It was so magical, I loved every second of it!

I'm Home!

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates. I've been home since last Tuesday (really early Wednesday) and I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to update!

My Mom and I had a magical trip and I can't wait to share it with all of you. The Glass Slipper Challenge exceeded my expectations and I had the most magical and fabulous two races EVER!

For now here's a picture at the finish line with all my bling!
