Disney World

Reunited with Lisa after 12 years!
I went to Disney World in January.
By myself.
No family.
No kids.
Just me and an old friend.
It is the BEST way to vacation. I'm telling you. I didn't have to worry about strollers, snacks, entertainment, snotty noses, sticky fingers, complaining, melatonin, extra strength Excedrin. I'm telling you, vacations with the girlfriends are the best kinds.

The proof is in the pictures.

At a karaoke joint. We didn't get to sing. =/

But we rocked the heels.

BIG FOOT 5K with Shan and Nicholette.
Ogden with my friend Shan.

Bear Lake with the sisters. Granted we took our kids camping too, but it was still all about laying out, eating, and reading.
Bear Lake sister camping trip two summers ago.

 Maybe that's why I like going to conferences so much too. I get to leave the stress at home and chill with other professionals for a while.

Shakespeare, writing, and Funny in Farsi with Ashley.

Hello friend, Chris!
There's a manic-ness to our fun here.
The moral of the story:
Girls just wanna have fun. Especially when our day is consumed with spit up and Spongebob on a regular basis.

And isn't that what we do when we read? Take a vacation with our fictional friends? My favorite friends to vacation with are any of Neil Gaiman's characters and currently, I'm vacationing with The Only Alien on the Planet. (Reading it for my students, but loving it all the same). 


  1. Now that looks like a fun time.

  2. When my kids were little I took several vacations without them. Don't get me wrong it was great like you said, no diaper bags, screaming kiddies all those goodies, but I spent most of time worrying about them.:)

  3. I really prefer it. I make a note to chill and not let myself be focused on stress. Sometimes that means I need to enjoy myself away from the children, ya know?

  4. Aaah, a vacation without the kids and the hubby. I've got to try that one day. :)
