TGI Friday (finally). It was a long post holiday, five-whole-days, crazy busy week. Whew. Today, I'm linking up with the DC Trifecta for Friday Five.
Today's Topic: Five Things I Like About My Favorite City.
|Pirates of the Caribbean|
Being a little bit of a rule breaker anyway, I went with my favorite place instead. It's our tried and true...the one place we've visited more than any other (except for the beach and that doesn't count) --- Disney World. Yes, I know it's not technically a city, but still a very magical place all its own. It is also Disney marathon weekend and thus this post is somewhat appropriate.
Five Favorite Things at Disney
1. I always enjoyed just sitting on a bench and people-watching (aka resting) while one of my kids napped in the stroller. For years, we communicated by Walkie-Talkie, life before cell phones people! On one particular occasion, I heard the hubs voice coming across the Walkie Talkie. He was talking to a stranger and proceeded to threaten to kick said stranger's boo-tay (I cleaned this up) over at Peter Pan because he was talking inappropriately on our channel. The hubs was just protecting our kids from bad language I guess. Hee hee...oh, the irony!
3. I'll ride anything. Hands down, my all-time favorite is Tower of Terror. It's the best ride ever, but followed very closely by Expedition Everest. The scariest? Dinosaur!
5. The very FIRST race I ever signed up for was the WDW half marathon. I'm not sure anything else but Disney would have given me the courage and motivation to hit that registration button. Up until this point, I was a mostly treadmill runner (except for a weekend run with my dog). I had no idea what I was doing! Eek! Bib? Timing Device? Corrals? Huh?? At the very last minute I ran a local 5k just to get an idea of what to do. I'll be forever grateful to Disney for starting me on this crazy, wild, addictive journey called running.
