The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/22

Hi guys! Time for another glorious trip report, highlighting our time in the Disneyland Resort. For the sake of flow, this report will be written by Jenn with Moon popping in for notes – don’t worry, these will be clearly delineated. As with my last trip report, a lot of food reviews will be held for a later post, so stay tuned for that. Hope you enjoy! To read all the posts in this report, click here. 

I hadn’t planned on doing a full day’s report for our travel day home. No one likes traveling home. Especially west coast to east coast; you pretty much lose an entire day.

Heck, I can’t even fall back on the always post-worthy tradition of complaining. Everything went fine. No problems driving to the airport. Both flights were on time and landed early. We had plenty of breathing room when it came to making our connection. Moon’s boyfriend picked us up from the airport in his sweet, sweet minivan, dropped me off at my car, and I got to go home. We didn’t even experience weather-related problems, and Maryland had recently been hit by snow, so we could have.

And yet here I am, and it is because of these photos. Let Moon explain.

MOON: On the flight home, I noticed a degradation of Jenn’s posture and mood… This warranted proper photographic documentation.

 Says it all, no?

The trip report proper is over – but we’re not done quite yet! Tune in next week for everyone’s favorite post: the food review.

The Fairest Week In Review: 1/27

JENN:  Sooooo… we’re back.

MOON:   So….. We’re back, yeah.

JENN: It’s cold here. I want to go back to Disneyland. 🙁

MOON: I want to burrow in a volcano.

JENN: That sounds delightful. You have always wanted to go to Hawaii.

MOON: I hate adjusting to life after a trip. Especially when the temperature difference is 75 degrees.

JENN: Indeed. I’m actually looking at hostel prices in various European countries in the hopes of further delaying the onset of real life.

MOON: If you could go to any COLD country right now, where would you go?

JENN: Cold? Norway. It’s on my shortlist. The springs are hot, the men are tall, and the horses have mohawks.

Sweet, sweet mohawks. (Source)

MOON: You propose a strong argument for Norway.

JENN: I do. But Dublin would be cheaper and I like the cadence of their speech, so the jury’s still out.

MOON: I’d be nearby in Denmark.

JENN: They do have Tivoli. I learned that in Number the Stars! Good book.

MOON: So, what of last week shall we discuss? We had a lot going onnnn.

JENN: We did! We’ll have a race recap and Disneyland recaps later this week, of course.

MOON: Of course.

JENN: But now that we’re back, have you been for a run since?

MOON: Yes!


MOON: I went for a short 5K the morning after we returned. Worked on speed, did well! It was cold.

JENN: Outside?! Lordy.

MOON: I didn’t run outside, haha! But, I had to walk there from my apartment… >_>

JENN: Bad enough. I went for a run on Thursday and gave myself the option of stopping early… naturally I had a GREAT run.

MOON: Yay!

JENN: It was awesome, but I was like WHERE WAS THIS ENERGY DURING THE RACE?!

MOON: Probably still sleeping.

JENN: This is a good point. The Wine and Dine Half in November will be at night. FINALLY, people start to do things in accordance with my internal clock.

MOON: Is this happening on a Saturday or a Sunday? I’ll probably forget ANYWAY, BUT…

JENN: Haha, I’m pretty sure it’ll be a Sunday as per usual. Any good music during your run?

MOON: I kept my playlist from the Tinker Bell Half going. I was hoping I could relive past glory to keep me motivated while running, cold, on the saaaad treadmill. It worked!

JENN: Nice! I listened to “Touch the Sky” from Brave for two hours/11.5 miles on loop. What can I say? I’m as strong as the sea is stormy.

MOON: Haaaa, very good! I believe we had a Twitter conversation going on about this.

JENN: Yes, you suggested that people dare us to try to run for X amount of time ONLY listening to Y song. I am intrigued. And a little scared… Let me just say right now that I DON’T DO LINKIN PARK.

MOON: Same, don’t give me that. It’s gotta be BALLSY, people, or we’re not doing this!

JENN: So let’s hear it, no doubt vast and untapped readership! Hit us in the comments!

And on that note: roundup. I am now EXTRA behind on my blog reading, so as always, if you have a post you’d think I’d like don’t hesitate to comment with the link.
