When You Wish Upon A Star

With all the sickness and crud around these parts, we are very diligently wishing on a star for some sunshine and warmer weather.  It'll be here before we know.  I can't even believe that baseball sign-ups have already started!  Normally, I don't like to wish away the seasons, but I could use some Vitamin D in my life.  Anyone else?

To perk our spirits, we told the kids about our trip to Disney World!!  Doesn't Eli look thrilled? Ha!  Ok, ok.  The truth is, he already knew, but we busted out the Mickey ears nonetheless.  This will be our first time staying on Disney property, and we made our hotel reservations within the 180 day window for planning for our dining reservations as well!

We can't book our Fast Passes until April 19th, so all the details have yet to be ironed out.  For now, our agenda looks like this:

Sunday: Resort Pool and Downtown Disney - Dinner at T-Rex Cafe
Monday: Magic Kingdom - Dinner with Pooh And Friends at The Crystal Palace
Tuesday: Epcot - Dinner with the Princesses at Arkershus Hall
Wednesday: Hollywood Studios /Breakfast at Polynesian Resort with Lilo and Stitch 
Thursday: Animal Kingdom - lunch at Tusker House with Donald and Safari Mickey
Friday: Magic Kingdom - Breakfast at Chef Mickey with the Fab. Five!!

We still have two "sit-down" meals we can use along with our "quick-service" meals each day and a snack for each day.  I doubt we'll be hardcore on planning those out since we try to be flexible and around the kids because you just never know.

As for Fast Passes, we get three a day and then unlimited floating passes once we use the third.  We can reserve the first three for each day on April 19th.  Of course nothing is final yet, but I have my heart set on a few.  More on that later….

Oh, and I just dropped the first of our outfits off to be monogrammed!!!  It's getting real, ya'll!


  1. I didn't know you were staying there this time!! I will have to hear these details!! I would love to go, but there is no way we are making a plan until griffin finally gets over his fear of people in costumes!!! Ugh

    And by the way- we need a get together. Period.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
