The countdown begins...
In about 3 weeks Mike, Arden, Mom and I will be on a plane heading to Disney World.WHOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!! We have been planning this trip since March, well actually it has been in the works for almost 2 years, but it didn't pan out. A couple of years ago, I booked a trip, paid the deposit and had everything set with the travel agent for a trip in November 2006. But that spring, they changed the school calendar from an entire week off at Thanksgiving, to just 3 days off and that meant I was going to have to miss 6 days of school and I just couldn't do it, so I cancelled.
We decided to take this trip to celebrate Arden's 5th birthday. Her actual birthday is Sept. 12th, so she always looks forward to the fair because she knows her birthday is coming. But this year, instead of looking forward to just the fair, she has something a little larger to be excited about. Actually, I think I am more excited about it than she is because as most of you know, I am a little girl in a grown up's body. I have been to DW about 5 times and the last time I went I was 16 and there is no need to go into how looooong ago that was.
Of course, there will still be a birthday blowout here! I ordered the entire collection of HSM birthday supplies from Birthday Express and it came last week. It is going to be sooo cute. (I know, I know you all can't believe that she is having a High School Musical birthday party.) They also have a HSM Pep Rally every day at MGM Studios, so she is about to die over that! Mom got her the Gabriella dress, shoes, microphone, earrings, necklace, lab coat etc. so she can dress up for her party and for Halloween. Killed 2 birds with that one!
I just had to share my excitement with all of you. I have tried not to think about the trip too much until just now, because it was sooo far away and there wasn't anything to get excited about. But now, it is definitely in view and I can't wait!!!! Just hearing the Mickey Mouse song gives me goose bumps and takes me back to my childhood. I can't wait to see Arden's face when she sees Cinderella's Castle. She is going to FREAK!!!!!!!!
