DisBroad What! What?

You may have noticed by now with my hints along the sidebar over there ------>
that I am totes in the club! I am a DisBroad! We are a group of great gals who love Disney!

Except for one thing... I have only ever been to Disney once, and it was half my life ago...

What?!

So how did *I* get to be a DisBroad? Here we go...

At the beginning of the year I was talking to a couple of my imaginary friends Patty and April. We have been online friends for over five years (wow, what a trip eh girls?). You have heard of them if you have been following this blog since the beginning.  Patty was a RunDisney fanatic and she had recently recruited April to do her first Princess Half Marathon. They were hitting the recruiting pretty hard and well... it didn't take much to talk me into a group trip February 2014!

I need a girl's trip so bad I will run 13.1 miles to get one! Wait... what? Run? I don't run! What was I thinking?

So I did what I had to do and I started running... and running... and here I am (when I am not injured which is like... all the time...) running!

Enter Disney. It is my goal to get the kids to Disney in 2014. I just couldn't make it happen this year. But I have such a great Disney network now that they (and you!) can help us get there right? So stick with me and let's find the Disney magic together!

You can read a little more about me on my family blog.

For short, I have five kids, ages 5, 5, 3, 2 and 1. I am one busy lady! In addition my daughter has special needs due to a brain and spine malformation. She is one of a kind and pretty darn awesome. I love to watch her inch stones and how she influences others which is why I journal in my other blog.

I love my husband, reality TV and being a mom and that's about as much as I have time for. There will be plenty of time for other hobbies (and sleeping) later right? Right?!

In my spare time (ha!) I call myself Colorfully Twisted and I make custom ornaments and jewelry and I am just gearing up for a busy couple of ornament making months. I will have a Princess 2014 ornament hanging on my tree next year!

My blog is mainly running focused but the DisBroads and I have a little something in the works to help you to follow along in my Disney journey. (As well as keep up with a whole host of other things!) Stay posted and keep up with the DisBroads on FaceBook.

I am looking forward to sharing a lot of my running and Disney firsts with you!
