Today is Wendy's birthday. Yay Wendy!! To celebrate, the CT for WM[squared] is having this fun blog template train. I'm addicted to templates, so I'm pretty excited about it!
Before getting to the template, we're all sharing our favorite birthday memory. When I was young, I had a birthday party every year. After 7th grade, I didn't really do anything special, maybe going out to dinner. But this past December, I spent my birthday at Disney World!! If you've seen my blog or layouts before, you already know I'm crazy addicted to Disney. I was SO excited to be spending my actual birthday AT Disney! I knew it would be magical! Unfortunately, I got sick late in the trip, so I wasn't feeling that great on my birthday, but I pushed through it, haha! My birthday was the start of Christmas week, so it was the first day the crowds were insane during our trip, so it was probably stupid to go to the Magic Kingdom that day. But, if I haven't mentioned it yet, it was my birthday, and darn it, I was going to spend it near the castle, sick or not, crowded or not! I was jumping for joy that I was there! Here's proof! ;)
We got there when the park opened, and did as much as we could before the crowds got awful. THIS is what I mean by awful:
Around noon (when that pic was taken), we walked back to the train station and decided to just sit there and wait for the parade, which started at 3. It was a long wait, but we didn't feel like dealing with the crowds & I really wanted to see the Christmas parade (I had already seen it during the Christmas party, but I wanted to see it during the day, mostly to get better pics!) After the awesome parade, we left to go back to the room. My absolute FAVORITE restaurant at Disney is LeCellier, and the one thing I wanted to do this trip was to eat there on my bday. This is one of the hardest places to get reservations for on Disney property, and I was SO excited when I got them! I still wasn't feeling well during dinner, so I hardly ate what I had been looking forward to for months. Oh well. :( I still was happy I was there, here's a layout I did about celebrating my bday at LeCellier, using Wendy's collab with Jennifer Barrette, It's Gonna Be A Happy New Year.
We were supposed to go back to the Magic Kingdom after dinner to see my favorite parade, Spectromagic, but I was too sick. Instead, we watched Illuminations from our room. We were staying at the Boardwalk, and had an amazing view of the Eifel Tower. We actually watched Illuminations from our room a few times because the view was fantastic!
Even though I was sick, I still had a wonderful birthday, and nothing could compare to being at Disney on your birthday!!
Well, now that you've made it through my long story, you earned your prize, haha! Here's my template! Just click the image to download. :) Then head on over to Jennifer's blog to grab the next template!
