It’s Official: We Have Created A Disney Monster

I love my kiddos with all my heart and I have loved making Disney Memories with them. I never dreamt when I told the youngest we couldn’t go to Disney until “No Dippers at Disney” (she was fighting potty training bad and kept asking to go to Disney) what we were about to create. She is the one that asks all the time when are we going back. And talks about what rides she will and will not ride next time. We have one of the blankets from Disney that has park icons on it, one day she put it over our heads and said “it’s like Disney World at night”. She will randomly show up at dinner with her Minnie ear headband on, I think we have created a Disney Monster.

My Little Disney Monster (right before COVID shut down, her last trip).

Back In Business

Last week I got a new phone and I feel like I am back in business now. My old phone was giving me so many problems I couldn’t have the app downloaded to post and I couldn’t have pictures to upload. But I am locked and loaded now so to speak.

First Step

Last week I took my first step toward sailing with Mickey again. I got my first round of the COVID Vaccine. Castaway Cay I miss you and I hope to be back as soon as I can.

Missing Holiday Tradition During to COVID

This weekend would probably have been the weekend we were on our now annual Disney Christmas Cruise (until COVID and 2020 of course). Which means today would have been our Castaway Cay Day. I am actually missing cruising more than I thought I would. I can’t wait to set sail again once all this is over. I never dreamed I would be a person to love the open sea but on a Disney Cruise I do. I love falling asleep with the waves hitting the side of the ship. And to top it off Castaway Cay is amazing. Hopefully next year I can sail again with Mickey, Santa, and all their friends.

Christmas Movies, Music, and Reads

Christmas Movies:

We are roughly a month into the Christmas Movies so I thought I would share with you the ones I have liked so far.

Hallmark Channel:

🎄 Never Kiss A Man In A Christmas Sweater

🎄 Christmas With The Darlings

🎄 One Royal Holiday

Hallmark Movies and Mysteries:

🎄 The Christmas Doctor

🎄 Deliver by Christmas

🎄 The Christmas Ring

I am not completely sold on the Lifetime Movies but I did like The Yule Blog one.

On a side note: I love White Christmas but have not watched it yet this holiday season. But I have never seen Miracle on 34th Street or It’s a Wonderful Life. Maybe 2020 will have to be the year. 😷

Christmas Music:

I am not a huge fan of Carrie Underwood’s but I have been listening to her new Christmas album some and I will admit she can belt out the hymns. On a side note nobody sings White Christmas like Bing Crosby. Guess you know my favorite Christmas song and album now.

The Friendship List by Susan Mallory

While I am not completely done reading this book yet. It has been a great summertime read. I’ve enjoyed the characters and their friendship, and the adventure of this book. I’m really looking forward to see how it finally ends.

Catching Up

I hope everyone is staying safe and happy. While COVID has forced me to slow down in my personal life (which in some ways I’m thankful for) it has made my work life busier and busier.

One thing for sure I am becoming more of a homebody. I love coming home from work putting my nightgown on and staying in. And I’m going to be doing more of it very soon. My dad is getting ready to have knee replacement surgery. Even more lazy nightgown time. I hoping in the upcoming weeks I will get back into the reading grove I was in.

Stay safe and happy. And thanks for reading.
