My MOST Magical Moment!!!


My MOST Magical Moment!!!


It was 3:16 in the afternoon on Friday, November 9, 2012 when my phone rang displaying a 407 area code [the MOST magical area code on earth, by the way]!!! I had been wondering what was happening because my phone had been making all sorts of noises for the past half hour or so prior to it ringing. See, I was teaching an online class at the time so I was really focused on what I was doing. So, here’s the thing, when I answered my phone, it was Leanne Jakobowski from Walt Disney World on the line and hearing her voice made my heart skip a beat!!! She was sort of thinking that I might know calls were going out and it was fun, because while I wasn’t sure exactly what was going on with my phone, I knew there weren’t any emergencies because there are special tones for that!

So, we chatted for a few moments and Leanne let me know that her and her team had made their final decisions for the 2013 Moms Panel and I think my heart skipped another beat!!!!!! The next thing she said was that she’d like to invite me to be a 2013 Walt Disney World Moms Panelist and to come down for training next month!!!!!!! I tried really really hard not to blow her eardrums out with my excitement!!!!!!

You guys, I’m seriously over the moon with excitement!!!!!! I have been chasing this dream for so many years and the thought of running down Main Street with a giant butterfly net above my head was looking sort of comical so I just couldn’t be happier to announce to you all that I am officially a 2013 Walt Disney World Moms Panelist!!!!!!!!!!

All of your tweets and Facebook messages since my official announcement last night at 8:03 PM EST absolutely mean the world to me!!!! You must know that I appreciate each and every one of your messages!!! Thank you so very much and I’m going to do my absolute very best to make you all proud!!!!!

P.S. I took the picture above from an ad in the Sunday newspaper two weeks ago!!! I had just started subscribing to it and I just about fell off my chair when I saw that OPI had an actual Pixie Dusted color named “It’s MY Year”!!!!!!! I’m in search for it now because OPI says it’s been discontinued and it REALLY IS my year, so I MUST have it!!!! #AAACK
