It's Been A While


Hello Again!!

It's been a hot minute since I've checked in.  I've started about a half billion posts but haven't published any of them.  I think it's because I owe you a lengthy catch up, but I have no idea where to start.  There has been so much life lived, so many changes, so many new beginnings.  New schools, new job, a new home, and a new adventure, which is actually my reason for popping on here.

If you've been around here for long, you know I love Disney really love it! It started as just a fun, one-day place to visit during our annual beach trip.  Then it transitioned into our favorite place to make family memories. Through the pandemic and seasons that my world was turned upside down, it became an escape.  

All along the way, I've had this crazy idea that I wanted to become a Disney Travel Advisor, but I never had the confidence to take the plunge.  Instead, I just watched from the sidelines and helped friends and family plan their trips...until now!!!  I finally took the leap, joined a travel agency, completed the College of Disney Knowledge, and started my own business.

I can't believe I finally did it.  Nor can I figure out why it took me so long.  It's amazing what a little confidence can do.  

As I have considered a business plan, and specifically marketing tactics, I have decided to use this space to record my travels, review Disney restaurants and hotels, offer tips and tricks, and give you my best advice.  I promise to always be honest and authentic.  Plus, getting back into the routine of blogging will give me an excuse to catch you up on all the chaos in the Watson home. 

I hope you will share my business with your family and friends when you hear of someone planning a trip and that you will follow along on my social channels, which for now will be Facebook and Instagram.  

For the record, my personal Facebook with still be for private use while my business page will be for promotional purposes.  My Instagram squares will become more "additorial" in nature for marketing purposes, but my Instagram Stories will be more organic. This blog will be completely authentic. Authenticity will always be at the core of anything I write or share on here. 

Whether or not you're a Disney fan, we could all use a little magic in our lives.

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
