So Becca and I got our hair done this week, at the same salon that i found when we first moved here. The Bamboo Salon. (LOVE it there) Libby and Miranda are the two stylists. Libby is the owner and Miranda’s mother. They are both excellent with hair color and cuts. This is a Paul Mitchell Salon, and they carry a full arrangement of products. Any way, both of us were due for highlights, so we both made appointments. Mine was Wednesday and Becca was yesterday, Thursday. So when we went to go pick up Becca, Carson and I went in. Well Miranda was working on highlights on another customer while Becca was getting her haircut.
Libby mentions that I could help the customer Miranda is working on, you see she is turning 21 on Sunday and wants to do a scavenger hunt in Magic Kingdom. That is how this whole thing started.
So I got to talking to Nicole, the girl in Miranda’s chair. She is turning 21 on Sunday, in the Disney College program, from South Jersey, earned her degree in Engineering, her favorite number is 7 and her favorite princess is Ariel. Well I started asking questions, like you know about the phones in the park that you can listen to conversations on, right? And no she didn’t. So I decided I would go ahead and put together a scavenger hunt of 21 things for her 21st birthday. She asked for a things included, like 7 of something, and she wanted the teams to have to collect some things.
So after much research, a few hours, and some great fun this is what we sent her:
