A Few Random Thoughts/Updates

📚 5 & 10 Reading Update: This past weekend was a little hard, for a change I was not the first one up and we had stuff going on each day. But I got my pages read. I’m really enjoying this. I am further in this book this way than I would be if I tried to just read it.

⚓️ A Disney Cruise with the kids might actually be on the horizon. I’m already thinking about their fish extender and door magnets!

📖 I usually enjoy reading on my Kindle but it seems right now I am on a kick where I only want to read actual books.

📔 Has anyone read Where the Crawdads Sing? I am hearing so many good things about this book, I might have to check it out.

🎃 I am not ready for all this Halloween stuff I am starting to see.

😭 My little man starts kindergarten tomorrow. I can’t handle this. He will be heading off to his first day with his Spider-Man backpack we got him.

Disney is for the Young at Heart

I guess I am considered a Millennial and I do not have children of my own and I love Disney.

For those of you that follow Disney World on social media and the news you may know where I am going with this, for those of you who may not, here is a brief overview. There was recently a woman who had a rant on social media how childless millennials should not be allowed in the parks only families.

Almost all of my trips are childless, with the exception of my most recent. I know what it is like to be there with a tired hot cranky child. (Heck I even know what it’s like to be there with a tired hot cranky adult.). While the kids are not my own I love them like they are and it’s hard I get that. They want everything they see and they don’t understand having to wait in line. Plain and simple Disney is overwhelming to a child, and I get that. And I know as a parent you want you child to have a great time, especially with the prices you pay now days.

When we were there with kids I never once looked at those there without kids and wished I was them and when I am there without kids I never look at the families and wish they would have left their kids at home. Disney is for everyone from the very young to the old. And anyone that goes to Disney should know what they are getting into. I feel like I get more out of Disney now as an adult than I did as a kid. I think now we go more for the food but I love everything about it. I guess I am even worse because not only am I a childless millennial my adult only trips are with my baby boomer parents.

To me Disney is the way to stay young at heart.

Traveling With Minnie Ears

Yesterday I shared my Minnie Ear Obsession with you. Now I have a question for all my fellow Disney loving Minnie ear wearing fans. How do you pack your Minnie ears when traveling? I’ve had a few ideas but none have panned out so far. I don’t want to just “throw” them in a bag but I want them protected too.

A Few Things That Have Been On My Mind

🏝 Each day I inch closer and closer to my return to the Outer Banks. I am so excited. As much as I like going to Disney, Corolla feeds my soul.

⚓️ After watching the Outdaughtered episode where they went on a Disney Cruise, I want to go on another one so bad and I want to take the kids on one.

🍔 I’ve been watching the Great Food Truck Race this summer but could not bring myself to watch the final because I really could not stand either of the two teams competing for the win.

🎬 I have seen Toy Story 4 and The Lion King but have not seen Aladdin yet and honestly I’m kind of torn if I want to see it or not. I did like the other two movies. I will admit I’m a little confused how they will do a Toy Story 5 (if there is going to be one).

👧🏻👦🏻👩🏻👱🏻‍♀️ The kids are growing up so fast. The oldest graduated high school and starts college soon. My boy is starting Kindergarten in a few weeks and the his younger sister will start her last year of Preschool. And their older sister is starting 5th grade. (Proud Auntie Moments)

🥞 Cracker Barrel used to be the one place, while traveling especially, you could depend on a good meal, but they have gone down hill. They need to step it up a little. I can’t stand to go their anymore. And the one that is close to me is the worst one ever.

⭐️ I know what I’m about to say is not going to go over with some people but I don’t care, I’m going to say it anyway. I really wish they were not putting Star Wars Land at Disney World. I feel like it is because of it that the prices keep going up (even on annual passes) and I really could care less to even see what it looks like.

📺 I am currently on a free trail of HBO through Amazon and I watched a few episodes of Big Little Lies and I must say I really don’t understand it. Maybe I haven’t watched enough yet I’m not sure.

Raising Disney Kids

I guess it is a good sign you are helping to raise them to be Disney Loving Kids when the four year old requests to go stay at the Disney Hotel after you pick her up from day care. Melt my heart moment.
