Begin Again

And so begin the chronicles of my (Jessica's) life at Disney:

About a week ago, I arrived back in sunny Orlando, and it's like I never left. I can still navigate around town, in the dark much less, without my GPS, and I'm a little ecstatic about that to say the least. I'm not quite as pitiful as I was last time I came down here :)

Thursday, I officially started work as a Fairy-Godmother-in-Training in Cinderella's castle!! As if all my dreams werent already coming true now, they put me in one of the world's most recognized landmarks and I get to play with hair and makeup all day long. Score. My outfit is pretty legit this time- you can actually tell that I have a feminine form, so I'm pretty psyched about that. Here's just a sneak preview...maybe someday I'll post a picture of me actually being a fairy godmother. We'll see. Or maybe we won't.

I've already spent a couple days doing princess' hair and makeup and nails. I've even gotten some tips so far...the money kind for all you smart alecks out there.

I'm rooming with a girl, Megan, that I've known since elementary school. It's been great living with her so far - she's a character attendant and I don't envy her job one bit. She has to be able to cut off character's lines and not be influenced by crying, pathetic children whose lives she's just ruined. No fun.

Speaking of no fun, David's the opposite. Last year, I came down to Disney all by my lonesome, but this year, David came down to intern as a character. It's really nice to have someone I know to go to the parks with and hang out with in my rather sparse spare time, but nonetheless, he's a barrel of laughs and we're gonna have so much fun this semester.


Also, don't worry. My love for Prince Caspian hasn't wavered in my absence.

But don't worry - I haven't forgotten about all of you. Some of the best parts of my week thus far have been talking to people, and you know who you are, from home. I really miss you guys, but thank goodness for cell phones/texting/Skype. What lifesavers.

Miss you and love you,

Boom, Boom, Pow

Ok. We know. We've been baaaaaad.
It's been over a month since our last blog.
But absence makes the heart grow in reality, the time lapse in our blogs is for your betterment. You're welcome.

Buter got married. And we were there.

But first, we were there for her bachelorette party. There was Mongolian bbq, chocolate fondue fountain, chick flicks and presents. Scandalous, I know.

A week later, she got married, like we alluded to just a paragraph before.

I (Jessica) was fortunate enough to be asked to be Buterface's maid of honor, and Erika, Kate, and Adam made it up the day after to join me for the wedding.

It was a super classy and we were so happy to see one of our best friends get married.

And Erin's niece and nephew were SO cute walking down the aisle!!! They were Erika's favorite part :)

At the reception, things happened.

#1 - Adam did not dance and we were all aghast.
#2 - Boobs McGee was 26. Shocking. (note, she's the one wearing the pink dress...)

#3 - We sat with James Grant and it was great!! Holla!!
#4 - At each table, there was symbol of Erin and Matt's love - let's just say that in reference to our symbol, they'll have a great time "playing putt-putt" on their honeymoon.
#5 - Kate and Adam got closer. Not sure if I was ok with that...or that either of them were either ;)
#6 - Erin and Matt made out a lot. Gross.
#7 - They played Boom, Boom, Pow, Low, and Gimme More all at our request, though they tried to put up a fight.

And that's that.

We also got together with Jamar and Alison and Kate a couple days after the wedding and were able to hang out and have dinner and smell a guy who had used waaaaay too much cologne. Yikes.

That's pretty much it on our end. Well, almost. I started writing a book for Kate and Erika and it's sooooo good (aka, pretty cheesy, but intriguing), that I'll probably post a couple chapters at a time on my blog, hopefully get noticed by someone who wants to make it into a real book (and a movie to boot) and live happily ever after.

Get excited.

Love always,
Jessica and Erika
