With True Love's Kiss, the Spell Shall Break!

So I haven't dropped off the face of the earth! I've just been... Frozen for a little while...

See what I did there?




Okay, okay, joking aside- I think I almost completely forgot about this blog. Why? Well, because I had to put my Disney dreams on hold for a little bit while I did some... job hunting.

Yes, it does seem like I've gone through an awful lot of jobs since I first started this blog back in 2011 (wow, has it really been that long already?!). Thing is, not only was I 19 when I started, I was working in a lot of different part-time retail positions. Now, though, I've finally found myself a perfect full-time job! This is the first time that I've gotten myself a decent-paying job that comes along with benefits (not counting a horrible warehouse job I had to endure a few years ago). Point is, I'm working at a bank now, and my husband and I finally have a steady income.

A lot really has changed since I went on my hiatus from the last countdown (I believe I was counting down to when we were going to move to Florida), so I guess I had better explain the new situation!

First, I'm planning a Disney vacation again! Next March is our 5th wedding anniversary, so we decided that we'd like to spend it in the most magical (and our favorite) place on earth: Walt Disney World! I'm starting my trip planning and money-saving now, so we have just about a year to go before we're "home" again.

Another new little tidbit is the newest addition to our family... we adopted a kitten! Her name is Athena, and she's my little fuzzy shadow. My poor little girl was found abandoned in an apartment with her mother and brother and given to a pet shelter. We got her when she was only a few weeks old (she's 4 1/2 months now), and my has she grown!



Anyway, this vacation's going to be a bit longer, now that I know what to expect and I can save up money better. We're (finally) going to be visiting Universal together- I can't wait to go and see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! I've been waiting to go since they first announced it, but last trip I didn't have enough money to go to both Universal and Disney. This time, though, I'm making a point of doing everything.

Now that all that is out of the way... I'm trying to decide what this trip's countdown should be! Any suggestions are more than welcome- perhaps another weekly movie countdown? Or maybe I'll go with Disney characters again. We'll see- as for right now, I'll be updating the blog with any news over the next few days, so keep an eye out!


Also, anyone excited for Frozen Fever? I'm going to see Cinderella this Thursday!
