Thank you! I’ll show some of her birthday in the next video. I gave her an interesting gift :rotfl:


Happy birthday, Nina!!! Great video--and also brave! :laughing: Mine would have probably come out completely inedible :rotfl:
Thank you! They were not as edible as they looked:rotfl:

I have a few life & planning updates so look out for an update this weekend about those! I’m so excited they announced the first HHN house. It’s given me a lot of hope about our HHN trip this year & made me want to start planning. & I know it wasn’t a big surprise but I love Beetlejuice!

For now enjoy this weekend vlog from the last weekend:

    I'm so excited! And thank you! I haven't been able to do much planning, but even just starting to look at hotels is nice.

    An Actual Travel Update

    It’s time for an actual travel update! :cheer2:

    As of April 1st, New York state no longer requires a quarantine period or testing to leave and re-enter the state. So we’re now officially able to travel! This coupled with the first HHN 30 announcement is really great news.

    I’ve pushed my requested vacation time to the second weekend of HHN into the third & have started looking at hotels. We won’t be staying in one hotel the whole time as we usually move around between Disney & Universal, but I’m already looking at booking Royal Pacific as we usually do. We also will be getting our Universal AP’s again since the cost evens out. And I’ve already made some plans with my friend Michelle (who you may remember from the HHN 27 TR) to meet up at Disney. So I’m very excited that the event will proceed at least semi normally this year.

    I also got a new car this week! There’s much more technology than my old car had (because that car had none :rotfl: ) but I think I’m getting the hang of it.

    I also may have gotten the idea after the quarantine requirements were lifted to possibly take a little trip to Florida in May too, but I haven’t planned anything yet. :scratchin (I did book flights though...lol) I probably won’t talk about it till I’m there in my vlogs (I want it to be a surprise & I want to make sure it actually happens) but I will give planning updates on here.

    & finally enjoy some pictures of Elvis :rotfl: (I tried bribing him with treats to stay still).

    I heard this news and wondered who would be booking trips now lol!! This is great for you guys. Just hoping everyone is able to stay safe. But the US is doing so well with vaccines so hopefully will be ok!! I'm so excited for you to finally get planning!

    Travel Update & New Video!

    We are on a roll for travel updates lately...

    565528
    (Idk why but this gif made me laugh so hard :lmao:).

    First of all I have booked some hotels for May!

    :cheer2:

    For this trip we were trying to do a little bit of a shorter trip (like have the weekend then go), but expanded it by a day to go to Tampa for a comedy show Josh wants to see first. (I haven't booked anything for that portion yet). However right now the way the flights are we arrive the day of the show and have to drive there. Josh doesn't think that's a big deal, but I feel like that might be too much for one day. However if we fly in the day before we will literally just get there and be going to bed (the only flight is later in the day whereas the other two days have morning flights and we're booking with Southwest because I have leftover credit from last year). So I'm not sure it's worth it to stay the extra night, and if we expand it into the day before it'll be just as long as our regular trips.

    So I'm weighing my options with that. I don't mind being there longer, but I'm not sure it makes sense since hotels were already a little harder to come by and we'd have to switch them around again. September was much easier and I'm all booked hotel-wise for that trip too. :rotfl:

    Also we have the first HHN speculation map!

    565523

    I did talk about it in my last vlog, but for those that haven't seen it yet I thought I'd post it. I'm most excited about Beetlejuice and Haunting of Hill House, but I'm curious to know more about the original houses since they all sound good too. I also have to watch Creepshow and I think I heard that Texas Chainsaw house would be based on the 3-D one which I've never seen. (Though I have a feeling that will be my least favorite house).

    And I got my hair done this weekend! I went to a new salon, and she completely fixed the color (the salon I was going to before kind of messed it up last time and it looked like I had 4 different colors in my hair but I'm not sure how because I've been going there for years and doing the same thing every time). I'm going to reveal my new hair in Wednesday's vlog!

    Other than that I guess we're just getting ready for Easter by baking bunny cookies. :rotfl:

    & here's my newest video!

    It's so exciting to be reading about travel plans again!!! It's a tough call about extending the trip or not...I'm more in the camp of not wanting to rush around and really do too much on the first day of vacation because if you get exhausted it might put a damper on things for the next day...but then...I'm old lol so. I just think it would be nice if you have to fly in at night...maybe to just get a hotel on the way to Tampa to crash for a nice relaxing night...? Maybe that's just me lol
