On Vacation...

Hello Loves!!

Sorry its been so quiet around here- Im trying desperately to get ready for the holidays. Am I the only one they intensely snook up on this year?
I have big plans for some great posts next week but sadly this week I've really dropped the ball with all of my link-ups.

To top it all off- We leave today for Wisconsin!! I didn't schedule any posts for while we were gone but I didn't want to leave you all high and dry-
So I'm re-sharing some pictures I used in a guest post over at Kassi's blog Truly Lovely...

This was one of my favorite posts I've ever done and I didn't want any of you to miss out if you didn't get a chance to see it over on her blog!
So enjoy!

Before we get started... if you haven't been paying attention- this, in a nutshell, is my life.




Oh, hey Disney Junior Live on Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I actually make a living as a performer for the Walt Disney company. I sing and dance for the greatest audiences EVER- Mickey loving preschoolers and babies!! 

Any hoo! I often get a bit of a backlash from non Floridians when I tell them Christmas is my favorite. I get a whole lot of "You don't even know Christmas if you haven't had a white Christmas!" To that, I say bite me! :) As much as I would LOVE a white Christmas, there are things I get where I live that certainly make up for my lack of snow...
I'm smiling just telling you all about this. Hi, my name is Nerd.

One of these amazing things I'm referring to-
The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights!
This display that so many technicians work tirelessly to put up at Disney Hollywood Studios every year is one of my favorite Christmas things ever. Once it opens up, I make it a point to walk through after work as often as time allows. On one of those trips, I brought my camera a long so I could share the experience with all of you! So here you go... If you can't make it to Disney this Holiday season, I wanted to bring a little piece of the magic to all of you! I hope it warms your heart like it always does mine.






This is one of my favorite nativity scenes. It's life size but I never think it's over the top. Tasteful and beautiful!




How cool is this? There's fake snow blowing, Christmas music blaring, hot chocolate being served, and periodically, the lights "dance" to the music in a perfectly programmed display of awesome!








My favorite thing about it- walking through and seeing families experiencing it together. From the very young to the very old, everyone walks around amazed and happy! I absolutely adore it.

I hope you all loved these as much as I do! Have a lovely weekend and I'll be seeing you all on your blogs when I get back into town! Oh right... that will be the week leading into Christmas...

Hey, 2012! You ready for us?

Those pictures are BEAUTIFUL! I am jealous that you get to experience that every year! Thanks so much for sharing and don't worry...it doesn't really snow in Texas either and I still think Christmas is still just fabulous!

We went in 2008 to see the dancing lights and it was AMAZING! I could have sat there all night (ok, so I did but I could have spent all night, every night there)! One of these times, I'll get down there again for it. After all, I do still have a 6-day pass :-)
