T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Cutest Babe Turns 1

Ok – so – fair warning – this week’s post is not at all Disney-related – but it IS related to something I LOVE SO MUCH – my NIECE!

She turned 1 this past week, and while we don’t live close to them, I have loved watching her grow during our visits:

This post may not be Disney related, but my sister in law is training her early to love Disney – which explains these amazing milestone month stickers with Disney Princesses on them!

Clearly Ariel is alraedy her favorite Disney Princess!

…Bet you can’t guess who got her that Minnie Mouse headband for Christmas…OK – it was ME! Gotta start them early, am I right?

My son LOVES his “baby cousin Hailey” so much – and as I type this we are on our way to my brother and sister in law’s house, and can’t wait to celebrate with her tomorrow at her party!

Hope everyone has a great weekend – I know I will!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – In My Happy Place With My People

This week’s post is not really about Disney – but it IS about what I find to be one of the Happiest Places On Earth – curled up on my couch with not only my boys, but my best friend and her family, too! They are here to visit this weekend, and I am SO GLAD to see them – they live about 7 hours away in Virginia, and we while we visit each other often and FaceTime and text a lot, it’s still hard to be away from her and her family so much! Luckily, we have this time together now:

This is the first time they are here in the summer since we moved to our new house – so getting to see the kids enjoy the pool and backyard has been a real treat for me – this is what it’s all about – family and friends. It’s what makes the tantrums and juggling and working so hard worth it

Lovin’ life right now – TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Practicing Gratitude

Normally on Fridays I like to bring you a fun, lighthearted look at something fun and Disney-themed with these TGIF pic posts- but this week I gotta say – I am having trouble coming up with something fun to post – in light of the destruction that has been happening all over – fires, floods, earthquakes – and most recently – Hurricane Irma who spun her way through Florida earlier this week leaving destruction and devastation in her path

I am not going to comment on the Hurricane specifically – other than to say I hope everyone staying at/working at/living near Disney World and every other place effected is safe and sound and able to move forward

Luckily – myself and my family were not personally effected by the hurricane or other natural disasters that have recently plagued our planet – and for that I am so grateful. Blessed beyond words to not have to go through that – and it just makes me even more eager to practice gratitude daily – something I always try to do. This week’s pictures are brought to you by the things I am most grateful for:

Gratitude2Gratitude1

My son, my husband, my dog, friends/family, health, a stable job, a home, laughter, hugs and kisses – these are the things I am grateful for today, everyday – always.

TGIF – and to those affected by Irma and the rest of the problems of the country/world – stay strong, and search for that glimmer of hope – it may be small, but it’s there

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  xmas16-2

I may not be celebrating Christmas Day at Walt Disney World this year, but I am lucky enough to have done so a few years back – it was the best Christmas of all time – until my son came along, of course!

xmas16-3

Now it’s all about him, and watching him grow and learn to enjoy the holiday – from Santa, to presents, to traditions, to the true meaning of the holiday – I have the honor of getting to teach him all about all of it!

xmas16

From my little family to you and yours – Merry Christmas – may your day be merry, bright, and full of love and laughter!

TGIF! And here’s hoping Santa is good to you all! Now if you will excuse me – there are some Christmas Cookies calling my name…

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Celebrating TEN YEARS With My Love

Warning: This post is not strictly Disney related, and it is also a bit lovey-dovey. There. You’ve been warned. That being said, I couldn’t NOT post about this milestone though – as it’s not every day you celebrate TEN YEARS of togetherness with the man of your dreams

We met in college, and have been inseperable ever since – even surviving over 2 years of it being a long distance relationship

We got engaged in February 2009

…And married in June 2010

With a honeymoon at Walt Disney World (naturally!)

But Disney isn’t the only place we go together – we’ve been on several cruises – because what’s better than lounging in the sun with a delicious cocktail? Not much, that’s for sure!

Ok, so there were several trips to Disney – but what do you expect from a Disney Addict like me?

And what would a family be without a dog? This little guy is not so little anymore – he’s almost 4 and weighs 80 pounds now! We named him Walter – after Mr. Disney, of course!

This little guy has been our greatest achievement thus far, for sure – he amazes us every day!

FB_IMG_1456753032079

He’s now 16 months old, and he runs around and is so close to talking – and we cannot WAIT to introduce him to the magic that is Walt Disney World!

My man and I have been through a LOT in the past ten years – some of it bad, most of it good – and all of it memorable! I cannot wait to make many more decades worth of memories with this man – including trips to Walt Disney World (among other things, ha)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fun In The Sun!

This week I am writing to you from beautiful Cape Cod – where my family and I are enjoying a much needed vacation, and we are loving every minute of it! We rented a house here with my best friend from college and her husband and their daughter, and it has been an amazing time!

Here’s some highlights from our trip so far:

I know I mostly write about Disney and how amazing it is there – but let’s face it, a Disney family vacation every year probably won’t ever be in our budget – and we want to make sure our little guy gets to experience a variety of activities and places. So until he is old enough to ride Space Mountain, we will take him other places – like the beaches of Cape Cod!

I’m grateful to have such great friends and family and the ability to take time off to spend with them – hope you get the chance to do the same, be it at Disney or wherever!

TGIF!
