Hi, friends! It’s been a while. A lot of curveballs came my way! A big one came in the form of Photobucket- I had worked so hard to upload all my photos so nicely onto Photobucket, only for them to change their policies and charge several hundred dollars to link photos from their site to my blog. Yikes. What a mess. I’m still fixing a lot of broken links, but I’m working on it! (Comment if you see any photos I might have missed!) I’m going to host a lot of my photos directly on WordPress from now on, and store the rest on Flickr.
My other major curveball you probably saw if you follow me on Instagram. My beloved home attraction, the Great Movie Ride, closed its doors after nearly twenty-nine years. We only had a month of warning, which meant we all had to switch it into high gear to close out the attraction and immediately go to our new locations. I only had about twelve hours between walking out of Movie Ride for the last time and starting on my day one of training at my new location. It was so much happening at once, and honestly it was really emotional. I spent three and a half years at this attraction and loved it, and I loved the people there. It was a huge change to lose the attraction, the work, and the people all at once. I’m now a safari guide at Kilimanjaro Safaris, and I like it well enough. It will never be GMR, but it’s a good job. I’m looking into some other places within the company as well- I think it might be time to move into a backstage area of the company rather than being front line. But it was a lot to handle at one time.
Now add to that that I was doing three shows simultaneously. I did a cabaret called It’s a Date in June, I did Heathers in September, and I did a production of Evil Dead: The Musical in October. So between everything going on, I barely had time to breathe, much less blog!
Now that things are calming down (I’m feeling more settled at Safaris and I’m only working on one show), I’m ready to work on my blog and my YouTube channel again!! I’m going to aim to post new videos on Mondays and Fridays, but I might pop up with more videos as interesting things happen. I’m also planning on spilling all the beans on the shows I’ve been in recently, as well as talking about my sewing projects, Disney, fashion, books, weight loss, and beauty stuff! I love talking to people, so feel free to comment or get in touch with me on Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, or Tumblr! Let’s be friends!
Here it is, kids- my first official Youtube video! It’s a scary world on the Youtube, but it’s exciting. I figured the easiest thing to start with was a tag about myself. I guess? I’m not sure. This will definitely take some getting used to though!

It’s been a slightly unorthodox Christmas- I introduced @shaneinscoisrad to my beloved family tradition of Christmas Eve Swedish meatballs on the 22nd, I baked all the cookies on the 23rd, I blew up banks and had pizza with @skipperkimberly on Christmas Eve, and today I Mugsi’d it up before going to sing in Candlelight. And it’s been great, and I had a hidden Mickey on my collar and Jodi Benson winked at me, so I’d sat this had been a successful Christmas so far. #candlelight2016 (at American Garden Theater -Epcot)
Same, Holiday Garbage Snowman. Same.

I’ve been pretty quiet on the instagram front as of late; if you know me in real life you might know about some of the tough stuff I’ve been dealing with as of late. But things are calming down, 2016 is almost over, and I’m starting to feel like myself again, so please enjoy this photo of me posing like an idiot at the Icon Oscars last week.
Who knew it would be so hard to take selfies when there’s a 14″ height difference? But I’m so happy that five months ago this adorable man asked me out. I love him so much! (at Epcot – Walt Disney World)
