Disney World

A Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The month of December got away from me completely… seriously, I don’t know where it went.  Actually, I don’t know where this entire year went. I am having a hard time grasping that it is 2014.

Anyway, I apologize for being so MIA this month.  We left Christmas Day to go to Disney World and Universal Studios and just returned yesterday.  Between that, Christmas, my birthday which was earlier this month, my nieces’ birthdays, and all the other holiday festivities, I couldn’t seem to find the time to sit down and write a post.

One of my goals for the New Year is to be more consistent on that though!  But for now, I thought I would share a few of the highlights from this month:

Got an updated pic with my two favorite toddlers.  I just can’t get enough of them!

We went to Enchanted Airlie here in town for my birthday which was on the 13th.  We try to go every year— I love seeing all the lights.  It’s very romantic. <3

After we visited Enchanted Airlie, we went to Carrabba’s for my birthday dinner.  My friend is a waitress there and she snapped this picture of us for me!

Another friend took this picture of us in front of the Christmas tree at church.  I was going to use this for our Christmas card, but I was a slacker and never got around to ordering the cards. Oh well!

We got to ring in the New Year at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.  It was a once-in-a-lifetime chance!  I loved every minute of it, but I will never do that again.  It was crazy crowded the entire week were there.  But I can mark that one off the bucket list!

Hope you have had a wonderful holiday! I would love to hear about it!

High Five for Friday!

Hey y’all! I’m linking up with Lauren at www.thelaurenelizabeth.com for High Five for Friday! And I sure am glad it is Friday! Here is what I’ve been up to this week:

1. Last Friday night, the ladies at my church had a retreat at Fort Caswell. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and worship.

2. Saturday night was “date night.” We went to dinner and then saw Gravity in IMAX 3D. It was the first movie we’ve seen since we got an IMAX here in Wilmington, and I don’t usually like 3D (it gives me a headache). But this movie was perfect for it! The movie itself was really good too!1384119_10100552759981766_2026105886_n

3. On Sunday, my family had lunch together and had a planning meeting for our trip to Disney World… My dad takes trip planning very seriously lol.1384331_10100553211437046_221635232_n

4. I am hooked on puzzles. At the ladies’ retreat, several of us worked on a puzzle, and I got hooked. Mom, my sister, and I started one on Sunday, which my mom ended up finishing that night, and now I am working on my own (1000 pieces… yeah, I might be busy for a few days…)

5. We have a new “neighbor.” This kitty has been showing up on our doorstop every so often this week and the other night, Linux got a glimpse of him and just stared out the window for about half an hour watching him. It was hilarious because the cat wasn’t even remotely worried about Linux, but Linux was whining and fussing (I’m pretty sure he wanted to play with the cat haha!)
