HAPPY! runDisney and Cruise prepping

After having the last two weeks of 2012 off, I am having a hard time even thinking of what this next week has in store for me. I know I will be going 150mph. Not due to having two weeks off.....it's due to me having this Friday and the following week off.

Here is why I have Friday off:
Only a runDisney freak can truly relate to the joyful feeling I got when I received the email with the above subject line. I stopped breathing and continued reading Congratulations! You are among a select group of qualified applicants who get to enjoy a special opportunity, tied to the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna.

Um....YEAH! This girl was chosen to be part of the runDisney Marathon Weekend meet-up. On Friday morning, I will be running alongside of Olympians and Hollywood stars. You can read more about it by clicking here and follow us on twitter with the hashtag #WDWMarathonMeetUp on Friday morning.

On Saturday morning, I will be running the Disney World Half Marathon with my best friend Keri and old roomate/good friend Tara. We will be dressing alike, as Team Minnie in the outfit below. I sit here and wonder if this is the reason that Gabe decided to run an additional 13 miles, running the 20th Anniversary Disney World Marathon....so I wouldn't dress him as Mickey Mouse.
After the running is over with, I will be relaxing with Keri on a 5 night Carnival Cruise. This is our annual tradition, taking a girls cruise in January. Keri and I have been best friends since we were 7 years old. A few years back, we decided to stop exchanging Christmas gifts and put the money we would have spent on each other towards a cruise. This is our annual tradition and I cannot wait to get my umbrella drink on next week!
The day I get back from sea, Gabe and I will be spending our anniversary together, for the first time. Although we have been together for three years, ironically enough this will be the first time we have been in the same country together on our special day. Year one, we crossed paths as I was coming back into the country from our girls cruise as he was leaving the country for a surf trip in Costa. Year two I was in the Bahamas on a cruise. This year, I get back from the cruise on the morning of our anniversary. Since I don't have an official photo of us celebrating our anniversary, this one will have to make do:
My upcoming week is nuts! Do you have anything special planned? What drink should I order first on the cruise ship?
