Thank you EVERYONE for your participation… and patience with my delayed announcement. Of course I wanted everyone to win, but had I sent 100 “you win” emails, that would have caused some problems. Ya’ll are great and winners to me… But for now, let’s cheer for Michelle and Carina as they celebrate their GREAT news!!!



Sorry for the all caps.

No I’m not.


So, my family and I will soon be off to…

Universal Orlando Resort

I am excited for a couple reasons:

  • I have not been to a Universal park since I was able to count my age on one hand… or maybe 3 hands. Um, yeah… a looooong time.
  • We (le family) haven’t been away together for a good escape (besides a long weekend camping, etc..) since… before Lucy was born. In fact, I was pregnant with Lucy. So… over 6 years.
  • Life has been desperately busy. We need to get away from the laundry and chores and errands and make some fun memories, yo.
  • You chose for us to eat at Circus McGurkus Café Stoo-pendus for lunch and Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville for dinner! I LOVE food!

*insert happy mama here*

  • AND… If you read this post here, you may have seen I was asking for your vote on helping us choose some of our adventure. Well, it looks like, per your input… we will definitely be riding The Incredible Hulk coaster and The Revenge of the Mummy! But to be completely honest here… I fully intend to ride them all. Unless my tummy overrides my intent.

Did I ever tell you my husband’s and my first date was bungee jumping?

Do you remember when Laurie (Tip Junkie) and I rode a zip line last summer?

She hit a guy and I got it on video.

In short, I am pretty adventurous. Big, bad g-force? BRING IT. Plus, the thought of Universal and escaping to warm weather makes me feel all brave and silly and stuff.

P.S. That Laurie is going to be there too. I feel some good video footage coming on!!!

Laurie and Me


Enough about me. WHAT ABOUT YOU?!

What is in this for YOU?

I wouldn’t go on and on and on and on about something like this unless there was a way I could share the Awesome… I am giving away two (2) four packs of two-day, two-park tickets to Universal Orlando Resort! Ride The Incredible Hulk Coaster yourself!
