Week in Florida and March WIPocalypse Post

Okay, I am officially in love with Disney World! I wish we could have spent more time in the parks Overall we had a good vacation. It could have been a lot better, but still trying to be positive, it could have been worse. We had wonderful weather... Not too hot, not humid at all, only one day with rain or even the threat of rain. Definitely positives.

We also learned a lot about what to do next time to get more bang for our buck and more time to have fun. We went with friends who had purchased a week in a timeshare so we had to rent a car, which is VERY expensive in Florida. We would definitely stay in one of the Disney resorts next time and get a park-hopper package and a food package. But since they payed for the timeshare, we didn't have to spend any money on lodging, only the car. So it was a definite positive.

They also had a friend with a son who works for Disney, so we got into Epcot for free one day. Certainly a positive! 

And this is our new friend Joann. We immediately hit it off and enjoyed our time with her so much. Positive, positive, positive!

Did I mention how much we enjoyed Epcot and Magic Kingdom!? My mother never would have believed that I would wear mouse ears all day in public. But I did, for three days! As soon as we entered the park and saw other people with the ears, I just felt the magic! 

And then I got to meet Tinkerbell, and Rapunzel, and Elsa and Anna, and Snow White! SNOW WHITE!!!!

We also saw so many cool birds. One of my favorites was this guy who visited us during one of our lunches at the parks.

So, in my efforts to be positive, I am not going to post about the negatives of the trip. Instead, I am going to mention that on the days that were not so wonderful, I got some stitching done. Got to work on a second small for the month, so the positive of the negative days, is that I am back on track to make 12 smalls for cards this year. Should be able to finish this in the next day or two.

One more positive to share. With our vacation and the time needed to prepare for it, I did not get to work on my BAP WIPocalypse, Lobo, every day. But the positive is that on the days I did have time to work on it, I got in more than my 50 stitch minimum goal. So since the last check in I got in a total of 1470 stitches. And that positive makes me very happy. Here's where I was...

And here is where I am now...

Do you see that eye starting to form? Makes me happy. And the steady progress makes me feel positive about this BAP. And here is a link for more information about the WIPocalypse SAL that is hosted by the wonderful Measi.

Well, thank you for visiting. I guess I have to deal with one negative... must prepare to go back to work tomorrow. Boo! But the DH and I are already talking about planning our next trip down to Disney, so I leave with that positive thought to look forward to :-)
