More in 2020

Sorry we are already a few days into the new year and I am just now getting to posting. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year. My time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve was a whirlwind. And I rang in the new year and the first few days of 2020 a little under the weather and just plum exhausted. Yesterday was the first day I really felt like I was headed in the right direction and I spent it with my cousin (who got engaged at Disney World in October) at a local Bridal Show. That was a real eye opener and it confirmed my decision that when I find my Prince Charming we are getting married on a Disney Cruise. The big weddings are great for some people but not for me. But I’m getting away from the point of this post. I have decided in 2020 I want MORE.

Happy New Year: 2018 In Review A Year Of Firsts

I was so excited I was going to post this on Monday (New Year’s Eve) but then life had other plans, so here it is better late then never my 2018 in review. 2018 was a year of firsts for me, not all good.

๐ŸŽ‰ First Disney Cruise

๐ŸŽ‰ First ER visit (for both me and the three year old)

๐ŸŽ‰ First visit to Frankenmuth Michigan

๐ŸŽ‰ First visit to Gulf Shoes Alabama

๐ŸŽ‰ First Candlelight Processional at EPCOT

๐ŸŽ‰ First time calling in sick to work in the 8 years I’ve worked there

๐ŸŽ‰ First Christmas we didn’t put a tree up or lights outside


2015 where have you gone? It is hard to believe tomorrow is already the first day of 2016. Here is a look back at my 2015. 
I traveled to 3 new states; Louisiana, Mississippi, and Michigan. In those three states I visited a few cities; New Orleans, West Monroe, Natchez, Grand Rapids, and Holland. I even tried some new foods; fried catfish, wilted salad, beignets, and a dole whip. 
Little Baby Girl E was born this year. I got a bonus trip to Disney World where I got to see the Osborne Lights for the first time and the castle all in lights. All in all 2015 was a good year. I canโ€™t wait to see what 2016 has to bring! And if everything goes as planned another trip to Disney will be on the plate in 2016, the first of hopefully many for my little J and E.

2014 Where Have You Gone?

It’s hard to believe that is less than two weeks we will be counting down till the stroke of midnight and the New Year will be upon us.  This year has actually been a pretty good year.  I turned 30 this year which I celebrated by going to Disney World.  The kids moved from South Dakota to home, now there are just a short drive away.  I have loved every moment I have been able to spend with them since they moved back and look forward to many more to come.  I got to go back to my beloved Outer Banks, and got to introduce it to someone new.  I got to spend a week in Florida in November.  I got to see Garth Brooks in concert, which was amazing.  I still have a few extra pounds to lose and to find my “career” but I can do that next year.  I hope all of you had a good 2014, it’s hard to believe it’s almost over.  Hopefully 2015 will be a great year for everyone.
