It Was My Blog's Birthday

Two years ago (yesterday) I started this blog.
And while I am not the most consistent of bloggers I have to say I've loved having a place to share my thoughts and experiences.  
It's always fun to look back on the 278 (now 289) posts I've written over the past two years and see how far I've come.
So since I've been MIA for the last month I think I'll give you a massive life update.
I hope to get back into posting everyday during the week.
Here we go:

WORK
Work is going amazing.  
Seriously I could not be happier with the direction my work life is going.
I am one of Epcot Guest Relations newest Disney Trainers!
This is a big deal y'all.
Being a Disney Trainer means that my leadership team trusts me enough to teach all the new Guest Relations Cast Members to work in our area. 
I'm someone that other GR Cast Members can come to with questions, concerns, pretty much anything.
It's an even bigger deal because I am not even officially statused "full time" to Guest Relations.
I'm just a TA (meaning I'm on a temporary assignment).
But it also means that it's only a matter of time before I'm officially full time.
Because I highly doubt they would make me a Trainer if full time wasn't somewhere in my future!
So keep your fingers crossed for me! :)

LIFE IN GENERAL
Life in general is going ok.

Here are a few highlights.

1.  I took a hug break from blogging after my cousin's wedding at the beginning of October.
Just got out of the swing of things. 
But the wedding was beautiful and so fun!




2.  I got a kitten!  
After I Beau got adopted I was super sad and I knew I needed another pet.
But with my work schedule being so inconsistent I knew I needed pet that is a little more independent.
So a kitten was PURRFECT. (lol)
I am pleased to introduce Sadie.

She has more fun playing in plastic sacks and boxes then with the toys I bought her.


Sadie decided I wasn't giving her enough attention.




I fell completely in love with her when I saw her at the animal shelter.
She curled right up in my lap and started purring.
She's 4 months old, so still a kitten.
And she is such a mess.
She's constantly attacking anything that moves, she puts herself in the most inconvenient places, and of course I'm totally obsessed with her.
Only drawback?
I'm seriously allergic to her.
I have to wash my hands all the time and vacuum like every other day.
Call me crazy, but I don't care. 
I need her and I love her.
I'm willing to occasionally be sneezy to have her around.


3. One of the reasons I have to have her around is because of my roommate situation.
I know I've told y'all about the roommate situation before (you can read it here if you so choose).
By no means has the situation gotten bad, I get along just fine with my roommates.
But I wouldn't go so far as to say we're friends.
We never hang out and sometimes days go by before I see any of them.
So having Sadie has kept me from being too lonely.


4. Big changes are arriving at Disney and I got to expierence one of them last week.
The Magic Kingdom's new Fantasyland is finally going to have its grand opening on December 6th.
And we cast members got to have a preview of the new area.
And y'all......IT IS AMAZING!
If you are a fan of Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid then you need to get your booty to Disney World sometime after December 6th.
Here are a few photos I snapped.
Here is the Beast's Library in Enchanted Tales with Belle.


Prince Eric's Castle


A couple of my favorite scenes in Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid


Gaston's Tavern


I really needed to see this too.
I have lost the Disney magic and needed to get it back.
And boy did I!
I felt like a little girl again.  It was so exciting to see some of my favorite movies really and truly brought to life before my eyes.
Hopefully I'll be getting even more of my Disney magic back this Thursday when my friend Jordan and I have a Disney day, complete with breakfast a Disney hotel and all the character meet and greets you could possibly think of!

Well y'all, thats all the major news in my little old life.
You'll be seeing a lot more of me from now on!

Have a great Tuesday!

Oh and HAPPY ELECTION DAY!
