When do you know you need a vacation?
Is it the strange dreams you have about work but also combine high school friends you haven’t talked to in 10+ years? The fact you can’t for the life of you remember the date? How about no amount of coffee does the trick? For Disney specific trips, does the sound of even your least fav background loop make you homesick?
Are we there yet?
Well, almost. I’m just about a month out of a lovely girls trip to Walt Disney World for Wine & Dine weekend. (Do we hear the angels singing?)
This always seem to be a pretty popular weekend to be in Florida (especially if you are from the Northeast because a lot of students and teachers have Thursday & Friday off). In fact, this will be the fourth time in the past few years I’ve headed down. It was never for the marathon, and was mostly for Food & Wine. Now, it’s less about F&W but more about friends and early Christmas celebrating!
Speaking of… since Alex of Practically Imperfect will be there too (separate trips, same time-ish), we thought it would be fun to chit chat about our trips on both blogs on the same days. (Even though, if we go back to the “do we need a vacation” quiz, I totally messed up which day we were going to start this. Oops.)
So why am I returning to Wine & Dine this year? Well, I had such a blast with Katherine last year that when the opportunity popped up to go with her again and a few more people — I couldn’t say no. Plus the opportunity to stay at a new resort? (Art of Animation!) AND see the Osborne Lights and the parks all decked out for the holidays? I’m getting the chills just thinking about it.
See? The decision making was all pretty simple. (Too bad we aren’t mindreaders and couldn’t make it back for one last spin on Maelstrom or Backlot Tour, though. Oh well. We can’t win them all.)
In the next few weeks, Alex and I will be counting down to our trips with a fun few posts along the way! Be sure to check out her site for more. She’s the best!
Now, before I sign off, a few pictures from last year’s trip:
