Magical Monday: 50's Prime Time Cafe'

It has been a hot minute since I blogged about Disney World.  I promise to do better...I really do.  I actually have an update on our 2018 trip to share, but first things first...the last time I wrote, I left you with the promise of a review of Disney's 50's Prime Time Cafe.

This fun little restaurant is located in Hollywood Studios and is one Table Credit for anyone on a Disney Dining Plan. While it was one of the best meals we had during our trip, it was also the most stressful.  They were running almost 45 minutes behind on the reservation times, and someone cut to the front of the check-in line, which made the wait longer as she had a large family and was extremely particular!

Despite that little hick-up, it was well worth the wait.  It's a fun restaurant themed like a 1950's Hollywood  home.   The decor and furniture are truly from the era and I saw several treasures that I remember from my grandmother's house growing up.  The atmosphere is super fun too.  The waiters are your "cousins" and they fuss at you to eat your vegetables and keep your elbows off the table!

We apparently asked our "cousin" for too many refills because he brought us a gallon of sweet tea and two giant straws to sip it through.  Ha!  As for the food, it was great!  I had the roast beef, which was as good as homemade!  Eric had the sampler with a pork chop, meatloaf, and fried chicken.  The sides were along the same lines as Cracker Barrel.

For dessert I got the apple pie...oh my goodness, y'all! Eric got a brownie a la mode and it was to so, so yummy!  Despite the long wait time to be seated, it really was a wonderful meal in a fantastic atmosphere.  I think the kids would get a kick out of the old decorations...and the "cousins" could even help convince them to eat!  We'll be back for sure!

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
