My African themed life

It started on Black Friday.

That's when I found out we were staying at The Animal Kingdom Lodge for marathon weekend.

My VP spent Christmas IN Africa, which I soon discovered is the new place to take vacations. Since finding that out, I heard from a few people who have taken trips there recently.

 My boss gave me a gorgeous ornament made in Africa, from a charity her mom works with.

Then I made dining reservations at Tusker House for the day after the marathon- I hear it's amazing! (Remember, Runger is a real thing. A Buffet is perfect AND I can take pictures with characters without being sweaty with my medal? Even better!) That's in Africa in The Animal Kingdom Theme Park.


This is also where I will be going on an African safari in the closest I ever plan on getting to the real thing.

I don't know if a trip to Africa is ever going to be high on my list of things to do, so why not the next best thing? The Disney version is more my speed anyway. Can't wait to share how it all goes!

Do you notice patterns in your life?

  1. It is funny when you start noticing patterns!! I really do want to go to Africa someday... That ornament is gorgeous!! Oooh, I can't wait to hear what you think about the Animal Kingdom Lodge - I'm very intrigued by it. Can you really see animals from your window? Have such a great time!!

    1. Right?! Maybe one day. . .

      Of course! I think AKL will warrant a post on it's own. Apparently you can tour the restaurants and whatnot. Will definitely report back!

  3. The first time I did the WDWCP I started noticing Florida everywhere when waiting to find out if I got accepted. Even the Boy Scout popcorn was from Florida!
