Angela Lansbury’s 91st Birthday

Today is Angela Lansbury’s 91st birthday! Mrs. Lansbury is an inspiration. Elegant, kind-hearted, talented, and classy. I love her. Of course, she sings the theme song of my favorite Disney princess movie as well as the delightfully motherly Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast, but I adore her mostly because of her role in Murder, She…

KATIE & MARK ARE MARRIED!

Mark and Katie got married today!!! The ceremony was like a fairy tale and I cried several times. The reception was a party! I’m so excited for Katie and Mark. They complement each other well and are a great example of true, supportive love. Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness together ❤ Some of…

Riding in Cars With Dogs 

Mia is funny. She gets SO excited about riding in the car, but after about two minutes she starts feeling anxious. She paces in the back seat and whines nervously for the rest of the drive. It’s super annoying, haha. But I get it. I feel anxious when I’m out of control, too!  I know…

Tug-of-War

Today was really, really good because I got to spend time with a lot of people that I love. My parents are back in town for a little bit (!!) so we had a special a daughter-parent lunch date. I don’t get to spend time with just the two of them and me very often. Then this…

Sleep

It’s been a long day and I never got to recover from the long day yesterday so I’m still pretty worn out. Tonight we shot Messy Mondays for the first time in over a month. We are all rusty so it took a little longer than usual, but we got it done. Josh will edit in…

The Dumbest Little Bummer

The dumbest little bummer about being back from vacation is having to make my own food again. I can’t be the only one who feels this way when they get back from a trip! Surely there are others who get used to the eating out and then the subsequent bummer that is meal planning after vacation. Disney has…

Day of Rest

Part of why our trip to Disney World is so long is because we knew I’d be taking everything at a slower pace, due to my low energy levels. Because of this, we built in designated Rest Days when I’d just stay at the hotel room to get some extra sleep and recharge. That has been…

fulfilling today’s obligations 

today was a very long day on the road – Josh and I just checked into a hotel and we’re bushed! so I’m just writing this on my phone instead of pulling out the laptop.. just a tiny post to fulfill my daily blogging obligations.  Time for sleep. See y’all tomorrow! 

Buck Up

Sometimes things don’t go as planned. When that happens, you’ve got two options: you can either buck up and make the best of your new situation, or you can buck against the change and throw a tantrum. I think there are situations in which it’s appropriate to stick to your guns and make things right, but when small,…

Blue

I’m sad today. I’m not feeling sick anymore (YAY) but emotionally, I’m just.. blue. It’s times like these that I have to remind myself that sadness is okay. I don’t have to be happy all the time. I don’t have to find a silver lining every time I’m feeling down. I’m not saying that I want to wallow, but…
