That Banshee Stole My Turkey So I Ate Him

So, if ya’ll were expecting a wonderful post about what I’m grateful for today, you are about to be HORRIBLY let down. Instead, I’m sitting here wondering why the hell my neighbors decided it was a good idea to start setting off fireworks on the golf course behind my house. It’s very safe to say

I Want Adventure in the Great Wide Somewhere

I’m very excited to announce that my sister is coming to visit! My older sister, Shannon, has informed me that she’ll be coming down for a mini vacation next month and I couldn’t be more excited to see her. It’s been a little over two years since the last time she came down to visit

I Can Be My Own Damn Valentine

In my 32 years on this earth, I have only ever had one real Valentine and even then I can’t really count that. You probably wonder what on earth I could mean by “real” and why I’m not counting it – I will gladly break it down for you. Sophomore Year, High School: I’m dating

There’s Finally A Magic Band That Matches My Soul

I remember when Walt Disney World first started rolling out Magic Bands. It was the year I moved to Florida and subsequently became a Passholder. Upon completing my sign-up for my pass I was instructed to choose a Magic Band. I was totally opposed to them for no real reason. Part of me didn’t really

2018 Epcot Festival of the Arts; or, I’m Just Going to Eat Everything

I’m so excited that Disney decided to bring back the International Festival of the Arts for another year. More so that they decided to run the event all week rather than just three days… kind of. In 2017 for the inaugural event, Disney only ran the event three days a week- Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: The 25th Walt Disney World Marathon

There’s a lot to be said about running a marathon. As most know, it’s not my most favorite thing in the world. Erica loves them but I’m perfectly okay with running my half marathons and calling it a day. Yet, the Walt Disney World Marathon holds a special place in my heart because it was

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: Half Marathon

If it wasn’t clear from the 5k and 10k recap, it was freezing cold for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and Saturday was no exception. I am typically a huge proponent of the “nothing new on race day” rule when it comes to running. This means that you should stick to what you’ve done

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: 5k and 10k

Another RunDisney race weekend has come! (Well, it was last weekend but I’m a slacker) As we all know, it is the first and largest race weekend for RunDisney of the year and certainly one of the craziest. The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is home to four races and two challenges. Naturally, as I

WDW Marathon Weekend; or, A Tale of Three Dinosaurs

The time has come for another Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. Specifically, the 25th running of the full marathon, coupled with the 5th anniversary of the Dopey Challenge and (if we’re being realistic) the 20th running of the Half Marathon. Refer to last year’s nonsense for what I mean by that. We attended the expo

My Apology Letter to 2017

Hey there 2017. We’ve come to an end and I feel like I owe you a bit of an apology. You see, 2016 really sucked. Like, hard. I feel like you’ll find very few people who may disagree with that fact. Even the people that loved it, secretly hated everything about it. As a result,
