What a year it's been!

Today is the 1 year anniversary of my blog, "A Disney Moms Thoughts"! It's been a fun year, to say the least! As I mentioned in my blogorail introduction, I started this in hopes of attending the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration in 2011. But that didn't happen...

I didn't get to attend the Celebration, which was this weekend, but I have made some wonderful friends along the way though this blog, facebook and twitter! Special thanks to Beth at Pursuing the Magic for including me in the Magical Blogorail! I have "met" some amazing Disney friends through all the blogorail blogs: Blue, Red, Green and Yellow. It's crazy how much we all have in common- jobs, colleges, home states, family make up, etc- but it's Disney that brings us all together. That's what I love about Disney. It brings people together. It makes people slow down and appreciate the small things. It makes people smile!

Along with the Magical Blogorail, I've been asked to be a writer for weekly column on another Disney Blog! It hasn't been "officially announced" yet, so I'll hold of on the details, but I'm very excited about this opportunity! Stay tuned...

Looking back over the past year, there have been so many great memories through this blog. I'll highlight a few of my favorites for you.

5. Memories of our experience at Harmony Barber Shop in 2008. I haven't even written about our experience in 2010 because it was so disappointing!

6. And a memory from the past year that has nothing to do with Disney... Auburn won the Football National Championship!

I look forward to many more memories, ideas, tips and thoughts in the future! Thanks for sticking around!

  4. Thanks ladies!! I'm excited to be a part of such a wonderful community!

    So are you a Diva? ;) I'm hoping that makes sense.

  6. Sarah, Yes ma'am, I'm a "Diva!" I'll assume you are too?!

  7. What happened in 2010 at the barber shop? I read your 2008 entry and it sounded like every other article/post I have read. I've been really excited to get my kids hair cut while we're there and it'll be my daughters first. Maybe I shouldn't be getting my hopes up??

    Here is a small taste of what happened during our 2010 barber shop experience.
    If you go, try your best not to get the same lady we did- Barbara from Indianapolis, IN. Look back at our 2008 experience and use that lady or use the man that is in usually in the shop. I've only heard great things about those two.
    Barbara was the most unfriendly cast member I've ever encountered. After I posted my day 2 recap, I had several friends on FB and this blog comment about bad experiences with her as well. No personality, eager to get through with each haircut, didn't talk and barely smiled. She didn't do what we wanted and my son left with a butchered hair cut and he had jacked up hair in most of our photos of his first trip to WDW...

  9. Thanks so much for your response...I've never met a cast member like that...and you had 2 in one day? That's sad....
