I'm getting my hair cut today!

I found this lovely voucher in my stocking on Christmas Day:

(I know, its backwards)

Here is a before picture:

It's not the best picture but you get the idea of how long it is now....

packing for the cp

Yikes! Exactly 2 weeks from today I will be all checked in for the Disney College Program! (and since it is 9PM there, I will have a full belly from dinner with my madre at O'hana :D)
I really hate packing (but not as much as I hate unpacking!) so I'm not really looking forward to this part. But on the positive side...I love lists, and packing lists are important so you don't forget anything. So here is my packing list for the DCP:

On-boarding paperwork

Disney notebook/journal (my brother got me an extra cute one for Christmas!!)



White board/ markers




Pillows (and cases!)

2 blankets

Digital photo frame (with loaded up memory card)

Printed photos

Jewelry tree

Jewelry (and cleaner)

CLOTHES! (I dont' want this post to be twelve years long so I wont go into detail about what clothes I am bringing)

Charlie (the bear that Alex and I made together hehe)

Shoes - tennis, dress and slippers (or flip-flops...whatever you call them!)

Wireless router

Laptop (charger and case too!)

Cell phone (and charger)

Kindle (charger and case too!)

Camera (charger and case too!)

Ipod (charger and case too!)

Combo lock for locker in closet

Laundry hamper (will buy there)


Toiletries (some I will buy there, some I will bring)

Hair ties





I'm sure that there are some things I am missing right now and some other things that will find their way into my suitcase once I start packing -- but this is a big chunk of it.

Since I am flying to Orlando, I will be fitting everything into 2 (possibly 3) roller bags. I will add to this list if I remember anything else that I think will be super helpful to have down there!

merry christmas

Merry Christmas!

I'm currently sitting on the couch, watching the fire burn (on TV, we don't have a fireplace haha), enjoying a cup of coffee and waiting for the boys to wake up and see what Santa brought!

After presents we will head to my mom and Ed's house to have breakfast and head to the movie theatre!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

disney to-do list

Time is flying by. With 18 days left until my check-in day (and because I was inspired by Lisa's blog) I thought I would post a list of things that I want to do while in Disney for a semester:
1. Trade for the Minnie Mouse vinylmation
2. Pick a pearl at Epcot (and put it in something pretty)
3. Drink around the world
4. Ride EVERY ride, see EVERY show, and watch EVERY parade
5.Take a picture with every character
6. Create a little book of my sketches from the Animation Academy at HS
7. Take a backstage tour
8. Introduce myself to at least one person working in Disney special events or weddings
9. Visit every hotel on property
10. Make life-long friends (cheesy, I know)
There are a few more but if I added them, my list wouldn't end at a "nice" number like 10, 15 or 20 and that would drive me a little crazy. So I might add to this later, I might not! :)


I haven't updated my blog in forever! I do have some posts lined up though, so I will work on getting those posted very soon :)

Only 2 days til Christmas!
