Hi. After a self-imposed DIS hiatus after my last trip, I'm back and ready to start planning my next Disney adventure. I'm Leslie, known as LL on the DIS. I'm 29, married to Marc, originally from Maine but living in Massachusetts for the last 4 years. I love to read, take photos, Sex and the City, Dexter and have been known to be crafty as in crafts. My traveling partner is my husband, Marc. Age 30, has a great sense of humor, indulges my Disney-mania, loves music and cooking. I have been to Disney 9 times, FIVE times since September 2008, Marc has been twice in that time, three times total. After my January trip of this year, I put myself on a self-imposed Disney hiatus. I told myself NO more Disney trips in 2011, so that I could focus on my weight loss and some financial goals. Things have been going well. Marc & I have been able to pay some of our debts off, not done but a lot closer. Plus we have been kicking butt on the weight loss front. We both of the Realize Band (gastric band) that has helped us to lose a combined 250lbs in almost two years. Since my January trip I have lost almost 40lbs myself. Marc & I on our first Disney trip together, September 2008. September 2010. A picture of us last month. We've come a long way in our weight loss and financial goals and to celebrate our 3rd Wedding Anniversary this week, we have decided to give ourselves a Disney Trip! But, it's going to be a very different trip for us. Normally we just wing the financial aspect of it and this time we want to be well prepared and know exactly what we are spending on this trip, from Trip Notebooks to Park Tickets. I hope you will join us for all the planning fun. **There have been changes to our trip!
