    Where are you from?
    Sis and I were born in Miami, but when we were 4 1/2, we moved to TN and when we were 6, moved to Ohio. Been in Central Ohio ever since! We are kind of misfits - not city, not country. Everyone always thinks we are from someplace else.

    What's your occupation?
    No paid employment. Hope to be a stay-at-home wife and mother. Sis and I do have our own website and make custom dolls. I also hand-embroider military patch repros (Disney-designs included! :) ). Make Tolkien-themed souvenirs, etc.

    What is your first memory of the parks?
    Oh, Mom and Dad had resident passes, so we grew up going all the time during our first 4 years in FLA. We went again, once, when we were 13 and got to go to MK and Epcot. Haven't been to a park since, but are really dreaming to get to Epcot one time! Mostly remember getting pictures and autographs of characters from those first four years! Still have the autograph books! and pen!

    Favorite snack or merch to buy at Disney?
    Sis and I have special diet restrictions from being preemies, so we can't really eat a lot of "out" food. Typically, we take bagels to eat as snacks, and that is our fun eating splurge! Something we look forward to eating on vacation. We love to buy stuff from the Goofy Candy Company in Disney Springs to bring back for friends!

    What was/is your favorite subject in school?
    We were homeschooled, so subjects were not something we were totally in to. I am not a natural-born speller, and don't care for math much. Love art, but not classes. Took 8 weeks of art classes and didn't do art for another 8 years. I would say, music lessons were my all-time favorite. Piano lessons (not done at my own insistence, either) were life-changing to me, and I still love to play.

    Who is your favorite celebrity?
    Can't boil that down to one . . . but Dale Evans would be at the top! What an amazing lady.

    What did you do this week?
    Painted part of the living room. We have been having a massive year of house work. After living here 20 years, it seems like tons needs to be worked on/replaced/repaired/redone, etc. In between Dad's CATScans and surgeries, we have been trying to get as much done as possible. Have more painting, more wall plastering, and serious crawl-space-attic work to do in the next couple of week.

    And finally, tag one DPFer and tell them something you like about them!

    Oh, so many have been really nice on here! Summerskin was super nice to surprise me with a ZAP right after Dad's last surgery, and it really was an amazing kindness to brighten life around here! Akarih is always so friendly,too! purplemandms is amazingly friendly, too!

    What a fun game! I'm enjoying learning so much about all these DPF Community Members

    Where are you from?

    I am born and raised and still living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada (or close enough). Most people don't know that Toronto it's self is large, but what makes it so very big for the people who come to visit is the whole of the GTA (or Greater Toronto Area) that is there to explore!

    What's your occupation?

    Currently I work in Accounts Payable for a medium sized company, and I am also in school to get my accounting degree!

    What is your first memory of the parks?

    My first memory of the parks is a hard one since I have a few from the same trip. My grandparents had a place in Florida and on one of our trips out to see them they too My sister, My Mother, and I (my dad had to stay home for work) to Disney World. I remember my Sister crying because she couldn't go on Big Thunder Mountain with my Mother and I. I remember my Grandmother pushing us to the front of the line on the Haunted Mansion, through the crowded queue because my Grandfather was supposed to be waiting for us in front of the queue and since he wasn't there she assumed he was in the queue, and once we were at the front she was sure he was already inside. I was terrified through the stretching room and on the doom buggies, as was my sister, and after our trauma we found my Grandfather sitting on a bench by the entrance, waiting for us to come because he had been in the washroom when we originally arrived. Funny that now the Haunted Mansion is my favourite attraction. I also remember Chef Mickey's, as a fun and exciting meal.

    Favorite snack or merch to buy at Disney?

    Well of course Pins are a favourite merch, but I also love all the cute Disney Clothes (even though with 40% exchange I can't buy anything :(). My favourite foods are numerous and mostly treats (since I am gluten-free). I love the Citrus Swirl Ice Cream in Magic Kingdom, the Gluten-Free Red Velvet Cup Cake at Sprinkles in Disney Springs, and the Gluten-Free Beignets at Port Orleans: French Quarter!

    What was/is your favorite subject in school?

    I have always loved History, especially Mythology. Nothing like a good story of Magic to get you going.....anybody else with me?

    Who is your favorite celebrity?

    I can't say I have one favourite celebrity, and I often change them around depending on the day and the way I'm feeling. Top four of the day are Sebastian Stan, Andrew Cooper, Richard Armitage, and Troy Baker.

    What did you do this week?

    This past week wasn't very interesting. I worked, went home and studied, and went to my class on Saturday morning. I also "received" some pin mail on Wednesday, but the mail carrier didn't leave the key for the Parcel Locker in our community mail box, so I am now waiting for the key to arrive!

    And finally, tag one DPFer and tell them something you like about them!

    Well I forgot to do this originally but since I can only choose one, I will tag @Tokaji and I like your warm and welcoming spirit, plus all the chatting we get done helps me get through the work days when they are slow! Also @akarih you are such a kind and sweet individual. I happen to know what is on it's way in the mail for you! I hope you get it soon!

    What is your first memory of the parks? I was six and the night before we left for WDW I fell off a small ladder trying to get our cat out of a tree.

You can see in every photo we took that my wrist is dangling or I'm holding it. That's some Disney dedication!
