High Five For Friday!

It’s finally Friday! WOO HOO!
Well not my Friday, I have to work this weekend.Actually now that I think about it.  I don’t have any days off for like the next 10-12 days.Gross. I was supposed to have tomorrow off, but I decided to pick up a shift in Guest Relations back at Epcot.What can I say, I just can’t stay away!  Seriously though, I miss it so much.This will give me a chance to see everyone and get back in more direct contact with guests.YAY!
Then on Sunday I start training for my next program.It’s another Physics program and it’s called Energy and Waves.I’ll give you all the details on it once training is over.

So today I’ve decided to participate in another link up.This one is with Lauren over at From My Grey Desk.She’s super cute and this link up is super fun.

From My Grey Desk

Basically you share your 5 favorite things from the week.
So here we go:
One:  Wednesday I had my first real group of students for the Properties of Motion program.  I say it was my first group because I was totally SOLO!  Yep this one was all me.  It went great, but I felt terrible for the kids because they had been on a bus all night.  Got to Disney at 7:00am and we started right away.They were pretty much checked out by the time we got to our last ride.

Two:  Seeing The Artist was definitely a favorite.  Seriously y’all have to see this movie.
Three:  Until I save just a few more dollars for an Erin Condren planner. I bought myself a temporary one from Target, that I LOVE! (I’ve already got my Erin Condren planner picked out and in my shopping cart.  Just gotta press the confirm button.  Hopefully I’ll be able to buy it next week!)

Still I’m pretty happy with this one.  It’s getting the job done.  For now! 🙂
Four:  My Disney “School Picture” as I’ve been calling it.  It was pretty fun getting primped and pretty for a special picture.  
Who knows one day I might be the CEO of Disney and they’ll use that photo as remember when type thing.
Hey it could happen! 🙂
Five: I’ve gotten a little over 10 new followers over the course of this week.
Thank y’all so much! 
I love hearing/meeting all of you! 🙂

I like this link up.It’s a good way to help you remember all the good things that have happened.Even if you might have had a crappy week.
Hope y’all have a great weekend! 🙂

It’s Ok Thursday and More

Yesterday Suzanne and I saw one of the movies on my list of “Movies to See”.
We saw:

Now before I give you my review I want to warn y’all.
I don’t listen to critics.
At all.
If the critics hate it, chance are I will still like it.
There you have been warned.
Now on to The Artist.
Seriously one of the best movies I’ve seen.
It is so different from any other movie that is out today.
The movie it self is completely silent.
So the music, the costumes, and the actors facial expressions told the story.
You didn’t need any dialogue. 
I can definitely see why this movie has gotten so much attention.
We haven’t had a movie like this in a long time.
That’s not to say this movie is for everyone.
You have to be content with no dialogue and I think that might be hard for some people today.
But I loved it.
Go see it if you have the chance. 
I give it an A+ and will fully support The Academy’s decision to give it Best Picture.
Which I think it should.
Also, I’m watching Midnight in Paris as I type this post.
It too is really good.
See it! 🙂
Especially if you love Hemingway, Piccasso, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dali, and a whole bunch of other famous 20th century artists and writers! 

And now onto a little: Its Ok Thursdays
It’s OK
…..to love your job.
…..to be proud that you’ve blogged everyday this week.
…..to wish you were one of the main characters in your favorite movie.
…..to be excited for April because Titanic is coming to theatres again!
…..to think it’s hilarious when your dog snores.
…..to love all your blog followers! Y’all have been amazing these last few weeks! Thank you!
……to not know what to do with yourself now that you go into work before 8 and are done before 3.What do y’all do when you have an afternoon off?I find that I’m just REALLY lazy!
……to have run out of It’s Ok for one Thursday.
Which I have.  womp womp.So this is where I will leave you!

On the Big Screen

Hello Hello!
Recently I’ve been on a movie kick.Which is not really all that shocking if you know me.I LOVE the movies.
And right now there a few that I am just dying to see!
So on this fine Tuesday, I’m going to share those films with you.

I am DYING to see this!Can it please be Feb 10th already?

This is the history nerd in me coming out.These guys were bad aces during WWII.I’m so glad their story is being told on the big screen!

This looks amazing.I might be going to see this Wednesday afternoon!Plus it has been winning big this awards season.

Source: google.ca via Pascale on Pinterest

I will see pretty much ANYTHING with Katherine Heigl.

This looks like a major tear-jerker and I’m ready!

Again…the history nerd in me is coming out. This too looks like it will be great! 

PS. Ignore that June 2011 at the bottom.It’s coming out next week!No idea why that is there.

I know what you’re probably thinking.That is the most random assortment of movies EVER.Well it is.I love all kinds of movies and I will see just about everything.I don’t listen to critics at all.If I like it that is all that matters.And this is yet another reason why I would make some lucky guy a super great girlfriend. I would be willing to see whatever movie he wanted to see!Ha. Just kidding. But seriously.
Alrighty well I suppose this is where I leave you for now.Until tomorrow that is, when you get to see everything I’ve been drooling over on Pinterest this week!Get excited!I’ve got some good ones this week!


A New Addition, a Date, and Pictures!

Happy Monday pretty friends!
This was my first weekend that had fallen on the actual weekend.Reminds me of being back in school and I must say:I LOVE IT! 
My weekend was probably one of the most eventful I’ve ever had!Why you ask?
Well for starts we got a new addition to our little family.
I am pleased to introduce:

Harry Winston! 
If you are wondering if we named him after THE Harry Winston as in…
“She’s got the 6-carat Harry Winston, on her boney, unpolished finger.”
(name the movie)  
Then you are CORRECT!
Yes, we now have a dog!
Officially he belongs to my roommate Sara, but of course we will all be taking care of him.
We rescued him from a shelter so he’s already house broken, doesn’t bark, listens well! 
Bah he’s just perfect! 🙂
Expect to see a lot of him on here from now on! 
Next: On Saturday, I went on a date!
Now this was my first date in….well forever!
Seriously FOREVER!
We’ll call him A for now.
We didn’t do anything super special.
It was very casual and fun.
We had drinks at one of the Disney hotels and then we were supposed to watch the fireworks at Epcot.
But we got so distracted just talking that we completely forgot about the fireworks.  
We sat in the same spot talking for over 3 1/2 hours!
It was perfect!
We just got to know each other better. 
And guess what?!
We’re going to dinner on Tuesday! 
Sunday was spent getting to know Harry better and just relaxing.
Pretty good weekend if you ask me.
Ok so now for my year in pictures update!
(Jessica over at Lovely Little Things does a collage type thing to introduce her pictures and I love it so I’m stealing the idea from her! If you haven’t met her, go do it now! She’s super fun! )

Toodles, Photobucket


For days now I’ve been promising y’all more on my new job!
Well I finally have the time to sit and actually tell y’all all about it!
First up:

That’s my training group.
We’re a mixture of Interns and Cross U’s.
(Cross U means that those people already have a job elsewhere with Disney and they are Y.E.S facilitators on the side)
We all learned a program called, Properties of Motion.
It’s a Physics program.
Now let me just say, I hate Physics.
It was the only class in college that I ever dropped.
So when I found out I was going to be teaching not just one but two different Physics programs I kinda freaked out a little.
Nonetheless, I went in on my first day excited and eager to learn.
First day was easy peasy.
Went in and actually took the program then did some housekeeping stuff in the main office.
Days 2-5 were all about learning the actual program.
We get to take the students on Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom.
At each attraction we go over a different topic in Physics.
Space Mountain it’s all about potential/kinetic energy and speed, velocity and acceleration.
Splash Mountain covers Indirect Measurement.
And finally Pirates covers Pneumatics and Hydraulics using our Audio Animatronics.
We keep it as simple as possible.  We’re not there to teach the kids just show them how what they have already learned in their Science classes are applied in real work situations.
IE. How our Imagineers have to use Physics in the creation of our attraction at Disney.
The Y.E.S. programs number one goal is for the students to HAVE FUN. 

I can’t tell you how much fun I had on the last day.It was my check out day and I had a group of 8th graders from a school here in Orlando.They were so great!They were smart, they listened, they answered all my questions.I couldn’t have asked for  better first group.Now I know this won’t be the case all the time.But it was definitely a great start! 
I LOVE IT!It has brought together two of my favorite things: teaching and Disney and I could not be happier with it.
Up next I get to learn Energy and Waves (another Physics program also done at the Magic Kingdom).And the last program I’ll learn is called Millennium Cultures.This one is at Epcot in the World Showcase and is a History program (Thank god!)
Well there ya have it.I love my job and could not be happier right now! 
I hope you all are as happy with your lives right now as I am.If you’re not, go out and do something about it. Find something you love doing and do it. You won’t regret it.I promise!
Have a great Sunday! 🙂

It’s Ok Thursday!

It’s finally Thursday!  Which means it’s my very last day of training!Tomorrow I’ll have real live students to teach.
Oh and just FYI tomorrow will be the day you get to hear all about the new job! Figured it would make more sense to do it at the end of training rather than at the beginning or in the middle.
So for today I’m linking up (once again) for:
Its Ok Thursdays

It’s OK:
….to listen to the same song about 50 times in one day.  Seriously click the play button NOW this song is AMAZING:

….to wait till all you are bathing suit bottoms to wear as underwear before you do laundry.
…..to love the fact that you have a wear a costume (aka uniform) to work because you don’t have to pick out what to wear to work.  
…..to watch both channels that are showing reruns of Friends.  (I kept switching back and forth as I typed this.)
…..to love my new hair cut some days and not love it others.(What do yall think?)

…..to really want an Erin Condren planner but cringe when you think about spending $50 on one.
They look so amazing though…I think I’m starting to cave.
…..to be excited about my date tonight!  Yes I said DATE..as in with a boy! 🙂
….to be annoyed/excited that President Obama is giving some big important speech tomorrow at the Magic Kingdom.  
(Annoyed because his visit is completely messing with my schedule tomorrow and excited because..it’s the President of the United States! How can I not be excited that he’s gonna be in the same place as me.)
So today I’m off work at like 12:45pm.  
Thank goodness.
So I’m planning on getting a jump start on some posts that I have planned tomorrow afternoon.
That’s the plan anyway.
We’ll see how it actually works out.
See if I had that Erin Condren planner…blogging and my life in general would be a lot more organized.


I Was Tagged and Got an Award!

So I rarely post on Sundays but two fun things were passed on to me, so I felt a Sunday post was in order! (Sorry its posted kinda late. I’ve been up since 5:00am!)
Jessica over at Lovely Little Things did two things this week that made me smile!
First: She tagged me this fun blogger game.Second: She nominated me for the Liebster Blog award.How sweet is that! 
So here goes with the first item:

The Blogger Game:
The Rules

1. You must post the rules.
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
4. Tag eleven people and link them on your post
5. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

Eleven Fun Facts:
1. I used to have my belly button pierced but one day I lost one of the little balls and after just 2 days it closed up. Now I’m too scared to get it re-pierced.
2.  Cheesey mini-series based on the British aristocracy are some of my favorite things to watch.
3.  Cream Cheese and potato chips is one of my favorite snacks.
4.  If my nails are painted (finger or toe) and one chips, I HAVE to take all the polish off and then repaint them. It bothers me to have chipped nails. A LOT.
5.  I hate to cook  but when I do…it’s really good. I wish I liked to do it more.
6.  I hate folding laundry and emptying the dishwasher.
7.  I get totally grossed out by crickets.  They give me the hibby-jibbies.
8.  One of these days I want to attend an awards show!
9.  I can drink caffeine at any time of the day.  Even right before bed.
10.  I was in 4-H for and showed a rabbit named Nala.  She won!
11.  I twist my right arm in a complete circle.  

Here are my Questions from Jessica:

1. How did you choose your blog name?
I got the name from the Dr. Suess book and figured it was appropriate since I had a ton of new and exciting things ahead of me when I started this blog.  
It is still completely true since I’m still unsure of what the future will bring.

2. If you could change your name what would you change it to?
I’m actually really happy with my name, but if I absolutely HAD to change it.
I would change it to something old fashion like Adelaide.  Victoria is up there too!

3. What’s your favorite book?
I have more than just one. And honestly I couldn’t pick just one.
So I’m gonna go with everything written by Judith McNaught. 

4. What are 3 adjectives that best describe you?
Kind, loyal, and outgoing.
5. What blog (only one!) inspires you the most?
Yikes, just one!
I think it would have to be one of the first blogs I started reading:
If you’ve never met Jenni go check out her blog! It’s amazing! 🙂

6. What is your favorite room in your house/apartment and why?
I would go with my living room because I LOVE our couch! 
The roommates and I spend most of our time here.  It’s just so cozy!

7. If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life which one would you pick?
Taco Cabana- Which doesn’t exist in Florida.  

8. If you could have one which would you choose – someone who does all of your cooking or someone who does all of your cleaning?
Someone who does all my cooking! Hands down.

9. You just won the lottery. First thing you’d do?
Pay off my student loans.
Then go to Europe.

10. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Drove to Kansas with my friend Taylor my freshman year of college.
I know it doesn’t sound that crazy, but I didn’t tell my parents I was doing it.
Eventually I did.

11. What is your life motto?

If you can dream it, you can do it.Thank you Walt Disney.

My goodness yet another long blog post.  I’m on a roll here! 
Well  hope you have a great weekend friends! 🙂 

A Year in Pictures

One of my NYRs (New Years Resolutions) is to take one picture for every day of 2012.
My best friend and I are doing it together.  She’s done way better than I have though.She has actually posted one picture a day.I, on the other hand, posted days 10, 11, and 12 all in the same day (ie. last night at around 10:23pm).Fail.That is not how it is supposed to work, but hey as long as it gets done, I’m happy.
But I figured since most of us are not friends on Facebook I would do one post a week where I share those pictures with you guys
So without further ado here are pictures from January 1-12, 2012:
1/1/12- Celebrating the New Year at Epcot!

 1/2/12: My cousin Candis came to Orlando and treated me to an amazing dinner at the Polynesian hotel.
 1/3/12: This was the forecast in Florida on the 3rd.  It was FREEZING!
1/4/12:  This was our last official day as Guest Relations interns.
And it is tradition for the interns to take pictures and bring them in a frame to put on the “Intern Wall.”
Jord and made this!
It’s a collage of pictures taken throughout our whole internship!

1/5/12:  Ok Bojangles is my best friend Abby’s absolute FAVORITE place to eat.
Seriously, the girl is obsessed.  
And when we live here in Orlando together she was constantly complaining that there was no Bojangles in FL.
I was driving around trying to find a bank and I found THIS instead.
Naturally I had to snap a picture and send it to her.
I think this has finally convinced her to move back to FL! 

 1/6/12: Brunch with some great girls in Celebration, FL. (ie. my future home).
 1/7/12: Last D-pin ceremony of my internship!
1/8/12: This was the position I was in for most of the day.
Thank you Netflix and your Watch Instantly feature.
I was watching The Kennedy’s.
(That reminds me, I need to finish that). 
1/9/12: I have officially joined the Bare Minerals family.
1/10/12:  Birthday dinner for my friend Amber at one of the best restaurants on Disney property, Ohana. 
1/11/12:  These are sandwiched from one of the funnest little shops I’ve ever been to.
It’s called Pom Poms Tea Shop.
I will def be returning to this place soon.

 1/12/12:  I love movies! Seriously they are my favorite things in the world.
Yesterday I saw New Years Eve.
It was cute. You’re typical romantic comedy.
Zac Efron and Josh Duhmal were my favorite parts! 🙂
Oh and speaking of movies, it is time for my FAVORITE season.
 As I type this, I’m watching the Critics Choice Awards and it is totally getting me super excited for the Golden Globes on Sunday! 
The clothes, the celebrities, the montages….EVERYTHING.
I love it! 
Alrighty well this is an embarrassingly long post, so I’m gonna leave it at that.
I hope y’all have an AMAZING weekend!
My first day of my new job is Saturday and I could not be more excited! 🙂 
Wish me luck!


Oh How Pinteresting and a Confession

Ok, I have a confession.
Not a serious confession, but a confession none the less.
I want one of these babies:

I’ve been pretty happy with the phone I have because I can check Facebook, my email, and it have navigation.But not anymore.I want something bigger and better.Now I just need to figure out how to get my mom on board with it!(Yes my mommy still pays for my cell phone because it’s cheaper than being on my own plan.)
I want to be able to blog from my phone, I want apps, I want Netflix, I want Instagram, and I want Facetime.
I have a MAC and I LOVE it and will never go to anything else.So I can only assume that the same can be said of the Iphone.For those of you who have Iphones, what are your thoughts?

Now on to the real reason I’m blogging today.

Here they are:

Ok so blogger is acting really weird and I’m getting frustrated.
As you can see the spacing of this last part is all stupid.
So till tomorrow!
Can’t wait to see all the great things the rest of you have pinned!

See now it’s deciding to work. Lame.Love you all! 🙂

Before I Kick It

Hello lovely friends!
So this is day three of my whole week off and I’ve already come to the decision that I could never not work.(If I had kids this would probably be different)But on the whole if I were to not work..I’d get super bored.Don’t get me wrong, one of my favorite things to do is lay in bed all day.But that is all I would want to do it for.  A DAY.Then I’d need somewhere to go, something to do.Something that would make money, not make me spend moneyYep, I’m definitely a working kinda girl.
Well that’s my rant for the day.
On to more interesting things:
Recently on Pinterest, Bucket List pictures have been floating around.Of course I had to start a whole new pin board dedicated to just that and let me tell you, there are a TON of them.So instead of sharing them all with y’all, I’m going to share my top ten:

Some of them are pretty doable, others…..not so much. But hey, that’s what a Bucket List is for right?!There are a few things on my list that I’ve already done! 🙂
So go check out the rest of my list here and tell me: 
What’s on your Bucket List?

PS. One of my favorite bloggers, Michelle from The Vintage Apple is having one amazing giveaway! She’s reached 1000 followers AND has a new very sassy blog layout! So go check it out here!

Till tomorrow! 🙂
