Happy Friday: When They Saw The Candlelight Processional They Rejoiced With Great Joy

Merry Christmas Eve, my friends! I don’t know about you, but I feel like this is just about exactly the right time to watch the Candlelight Processional. I’m guessing you’re not in Epcot right now and jonesing to wait in a 4-hour line, so YouTube is fine. I myself have seen the show live twice now and find the whole thing just as lovely as the next person, but there’s one particular segment that stands out as a favorite. I rather think it might be your favorite too. It certainly seems to be a hit with Neil Patrick Harris,...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 12/01

It’s trip report time! You can see all the posts in this report here. We pick up the next morning with me bouncing out of bed at 6am and going for a run, because if a trip doesn’t have a race built in you just have to do it yourself. I’ll do a full post on running around the All-Star resorts at a later time. I knocked out three miles before heading back to the room to shower and get ready to roll out.  Finding out my grandmother had died had certainly cast a pall over things, but since...

The Fairest Week In Review: 8/30

Hey guys! I had an amazing long weekend at the wedding of a couple friends, and it was glorious even if I did let my face get a little sunburnt and I didn’t get any running done at all.

Sunday | ran 10.17 miles outside in 1:50 Monday | walked 2.19 miles outside in 35 minutes; 55 minute workout class Tuesday | ran 7.33 miles outside in 1:20 Wednesday | walked 2.3 miles outside in 40 minutes; 55 minute workout class Thursday |...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: 12/07/13

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...

In Which Jenn is the Only Person On Earth with Candlelight Processional Reservations

I’ve mentioned previously that I’m taking my mom to Walt Disney World in December in our first trip together since 1998. Allow me to outline my plan: I organize a trip so amazing that my mom informs my dad that they have been making a mistake all these years, disbelieving my claims that WDW is awesome, and that more trips must be made with all haste. My dad agrees to go to Walt Disney World again in the next year or so. My WDW hotel bill for one trip is reduced to 1/3. Unless we want to get REALLY...
