The Fairest Week In Review: 12/30

Another just-Jenn WIR, guys. I’m so sorry about teasing you with last week’s return of the dynamic duo, but SOMEBODY is on a road trip with her boyfriend. (The somebody in question is Moon.) She tells me she went for a run in Tennessee and will do a post on it, so we will forgive her her absence. 😉 As for my running last week… ehhhh. Well. It’s better than last year. Last year I didn’t run at ALL in the week between Christmas and New Year’s. This year I am at least getting miles in. But they suck....

The Fairest Week In Review: 12/23

JENN: Let’s start by noting that we finally got around to putting together our flights for the Tinker Bell Half, and I’m super excited! MOON: We are flying to LA, whhhat! JENN: And our flight out is even nonstop. Unprecedented! MOON: The cares weren’t too steep either. I mean fares. JENN: Indeed. MOON: Quite. JENN: Yes. Overall, I think it’s an auspicious beginning. MOON: So… tell me about your week. I hear there was a muscle injury? JENN: 🙁 Yeah. MOON: I’m so sorry. Did you walk today? JENN: Yeah, today was just a walk. See, on Thursday I...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: Restaurant Reviews – 12/04 & 12/05

The trip report concludes (waaah noooo!!) with Jenn’s final round of restaurant reviews. Click here to see all the posts for this trip report.  ‘Kay, so, I think for the most part I covered the counter service food in the reports themselves, but there is much to be said about table service restaurants. We had one per day, so strap in, kids! How do we start this culinary tour of Walt Disney World? Why, with a little place you may have heard of on top of the Contemporary called the California Grill. And yes, we got a Magic Kingdom-side...

The trip report continues! Click here to see all the posts for this report. As a note: I’m glossing over my food experiences here, but don’t worry – I’ll be doing a full food post or two later on. My very last page of vacation day notes. My last trip report day. Waaaah. At least I have a couple posts’ worth of food reviews… after which I’ll really be depressed. The wake-up bugle was at 6:45AM this morning because I wanted to give us time to check our luggage without impacting our schedule. When we left we found our...

The trip report continues! Click here to see all the posts for this report. As a note: I’m glossing over my food experiences here, but don’t worry – I’ll be doing a full food post or two later on. Our last full day. Booo. It’s funny how you can start getting bummed out over the end of your vacation before it, y’know, ends. Anyway. We were up early again, and I ate the other half of last night’s grilled veggie sandwich for breakfast while my mom got ready to go. We were out the door by 7:45 and at...

The Fairest Week In Review: 12/16

JENN: LOOK WHO I FOOOOOOUND MOON:  GIIIIIIRRRRLLLLL Reunited! WITH HATS. JENN: WOO! Moon has been running! MOON: Affirmative! JENN: So how’s your new training era been going? MOON: Well, typically training is always a downer in the winter for me. You know… it’s cold, no sun, every day is blue. So I made myself promise to run every day for a week at least to try and get back into my normal routine. I think it worked pretty well. This week I plan to do at least one long run. JENN: Have you been running outside or treadmilling it?...

The trip report continues! Click here to see all the posts for this report. As a note: I’m glossing over my food experiences here, but don’t worry – I’ll be doing a full food post or two later on. I was surprisingly merciful after our late night and set the alarm for 7:30 instead of 7AM. My mom hopped in the shower while I brought up Animal Kingdom showtimes on the My Disney Experience app, which was being cooperative. I wanted to catch the bird show and the Nemo musical, but the times were a little at odds. I...

The trip report continues! Click here to see all the posts for this report. As a note: I’m glossing over my food experiences here, but don’t worry – I’ll be doing a full food post or two later on. We got up at 7AM for our first full vacation day. Epcot was on the docket, but first we wanted to tell someone about the open door snafu from the night before. (Etymologist’s note: you should look up the origin of the word “snafu.” Never fails to make me laugh.) So we swung through the lobby on our way to...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: 12/04/13

TRIP REPORT TIIIIIIIIIIME. I’m talking about this trip! ‘K, so, before I start, I want to note that I will be glossing over the food experiences. Don’t worry – after the trip report is all done I’ll be doing a food post. Maybe a couple! This trip report starts with me waking up at 2AM, because I am completely incapable of sleeping well the night before a flight. This night was no different, with the added spice of two text messages from Southwest: one saying that our flight had been postponed by an hour, and then one immediately following...

The Fairest Week in Review: 12/10

In the immortal words of Marvin the Paranoid Android: Oh GOD I’m so depressed. In other words, I flew home from Walt Disney World on Sunday, and now I’m falling into the tired, inevitable old cliche: constantly thinking things like “Yesterday at this time, I was eating breakfast with Tigger.” “Yesterday at this time I was walking past Spaceship Earth.” Three days ago, I was setting the Magic Kingdom on fire. And then I forgot to close out my spreadsheet on my computer, so when I got to work this morning and turned on my monitor it was THERE,...
