Hello. My name is Jessica. And I'm a Disney obsessed, compulsive planner. I have been Disney free for ONE YEAR! (All Chime In) "Hi Jessica!" Let me start off by saying that this is my 2nd attempt at this pre-trip report. The first one wasn't bad or anything, but I have a touch of OCD and forgot to make a second post reserved for links, and just resolved to the fact that this would bother me all PTR long. Whoopsies! Clearly, it's been awhile since I've written a PTR! As this title states, this is a girls only trip. Sorry fellas. Really not, because we're going to have SO. MUCH. FUN! My name is Jessica, I am 25 and work in sales. I'm a Wisconsin native, by way of North Carolina, that was transplanted to New York City. Follow all of that? Haha, well in short, I was born in North Carolina (Asheville area) and moved to Wisconsin with my parents when I was young. A little over a year and a half ago, I got to fulfill a lifelong dream, and move to New York City for work. It was always supposed to be on a short term basis, and I knew that eventually, I had to come back to Wisconsin. It didn't matter, I was hooked, and have been trying to work my way back to New York ever since. I likened leaving New York to a really bad break up. Its a year later, and I still miss New York. Every. Single. Day. If only fantastic and fabulous jobs and apartments just fell out of the sky.... Anyway, this trip report is not about New York (although, there will probably be a few side trips to NY along the way. I REALLY can't stay away for long!) Besides my newfound obsession with New York, I also adore Disney. I was a late bloomer when it comes to Disney. I mean, I watched the movies when I was a kid, but I didn't actually get to go to a park until after I graduated high school. After one, horribly planned, trip to Disneyland, I was hooked! Seriously, the planning was bad. This will be my THIRD trip to Disney World (you know what they say about the third time!) As previously mentioned, I am an obsessive compulsive planner. I LOVE writing trip reports and blogging, LOVE having Disney movie theme nights and really enjoy cooking. On my last trip I picked up a few Disney cook books, and besides regular theme nights, plan to try out a few Disney classics to get us excited for our trip. Who is US, you ask? Well us would be myself and my dear dear BFF, Megan. Her and I met many many moons ago thru a mutual friend of ours and have pretty much been besties ever since. She is a Disney Virgin! This will also be her second time EVER on an airplane! She, like me, is a very type A personality. She loves animals and FOOD. She and I also enjoy a good cocktail (sometimes two!) on a regular to very regular basis. Here are a few pictures of us from a shopping trip this past weekend down in Schaumburg, IL. We visited Ikea (got some super amazing stuff!) and the ever popular Joe's Crab Shack. I promise that I never double fist. Ever. Ok, well, sometimes, when it's a good photo op, I do. Crabby goodness! You will notice that the hair is not pulled back for drinking, but it is for the eating. Eating is SERIOUS business. Up Next...How This Trip Came To Be!
