Disney as an Adults-Only Destination... YES!

Today we are snuggled in just waiting to lose power while hurricane Sandy approaches.

But just a week ago I was at Walt Disney World to preview the New Fantasyland, and I'm channeling those warm memories as I write this.

I was invited for a media tour of the New Fantasyland expansion that has taken place in Magic Kingdom. I was invited to bring the family but we just couldn't work it out with our schedules.

So, I went alone.

YES I DID!

And?

It was awwwwesome! (I totally sang that)

I was actually down there with a group of bloggers, many of whom I've had the chance to get to know over the years and others I had the pleasure to get to know. You see most of them couldn't work it out to bring their families and we realized...

We could go on all the roller coasters our kids refuse to go on!

Like the Rockin Roller Coaster!

Partay like Rock Stars at Hollywood Studios dude.

We also realized it was the International Food and Wine Festival at EPCOT.

OMG!?!

If this isn't the best reason to visit Disney without kids, than I don't know what is.

Yummy Mummy Drink

All of the countries have exotic food offerings and unique drinks that range in price between $5 and $15.

It was such a fun way to experience Disney. Something very new to me and something I want to do again with my husband and possibly for a girl's weekend.

Who's in??

Of course the highlight was being able to be one of the firsts to experience the New Fantasyland. But that needs a post all to itself.

For now, start planning your adult Disney trip and let me know if you need any tips.

New Year, New 'Tude

Some things have me stressed out already just 5 days into the new year. But nothing that compares to what a few friends of mine are dealing with.

I was catching up with my brother yesterday and we were chatting about just how lucky we both really are. Sure we have things that stress us out, but even at the very worst....

say I lose my job, have to leave our home, whatever I imagine my worst to be...

at least I have my health and my kids health.

I have my family, good friends, lots of love and joy.

I have my mind,  I have peace.

And then my brother said something really brilliant,

"I'm going to spend more time being thankful for the things I have TODAY because life is too short to worry about the things I might lose tomorrow."

I have no idea if that is original or not.

I just liked it.

And I want to live it.

Every day.

What are you focused on as we start the new year? I'd love to hear about something really inspiring.

It's not that I don't love my kids....

I know what you are thinking, "What kind of mother starts out a statement like that?" Let me explain...

This past weekend I got to enjoy the pleasure of taking care of no one...but myself.
I went up to a friend's cabin in the Poconos and enjoyed time with my college friends. No twins, no husband, no internet.

For the first time in a long time my first thought was not about the Twofer, what they were doing, or what I can feed them for breakfast.
It was about ME for an entire weekend.


The only whining I heard was from the wind outside.

The only fight I witnessed was between my friend, and the cork stuck in the bottle of wine.

I ate my good 60% chocolate without hiding behind a door (I'm not wasting good chocolate on the Twofer).

And I swore like a sailor and loved it.

Getting there I was so Scary, that when my friend bought her kids "trip gifts" I actually said, "My gift to the twins is that I actually come back from the trip".

But by the end of the weekend I had softened. I actually came home Sunday a changed woman. Unplugged, de-stressed, and ready to take on the mound of laundry and the backlog of emails without hardly a palpitation.

And, dare I say, I came back a little less scary.

With that, I'll do a quick Let it Go on Tuesday. Today I'm letting go of:
1. The pressure to celebrate 10 years of marriage in a BIG way when all we really want to do is go out for a great meal and watch a movie.

2. The fear I have watching the twins riding a horse that is trotting...with no hands!

3. The fact that there are only 24 hours in a day and I need to sleep for at least 7 of those.

What are you letting go of?

A good friend is....

Just a few I realized after this weekend but I might have to make this a regular piece in this blog. I am so lucky.

A good friend is...

Someone you can hang with after not seeing each other for 3 years without skipping a beat.

Someone who packs up all her daughter's really cool clothes and shoes for your girls and saves you about $300.

Someone who buys you 3 dozen NY bagels because you can't get anything like it at home.

Freezer full of bagels

Need I say more?

Anyone else have a good one?
