First Week of Advent 2016 : Hope

Welcome to the season of Advent! Advent comes from the Latin adventus and means "coming." The main event is the coming, or birth, of Jesus our Savior. As the saints of old anticipated the coming of Christ with great expectation, we, too, eagerly await His return. So follow along as my family and I go along on the journey of Advent. If you would like a reminder of what Advent is like here is the last blog post of Advent from last year.


Welcome to the first week of 2016 Advent season. "A single thread of hope is a powerful thing." Hope is to trust in, wait for, look for, or desire something or someone; or to expect something beneficial in the future. So what does hope mean in advent season?

17 Before 2017 + 17 Words for 2017: My Bullet Journal Collection

There are only 20 something days until January 1, 2017! This year has been amazing, but there are a few things that I want to get done before the beginning of the year. Boho Berry inspired me to do this collection in my bullet journal. The collection is called 17 Before 2017. I, then, also decided to do 17 Words for 2017.


And while it is a little late for some people to do. I happen to work best with as little time left because then it pushes me to not procrastinate. So this set up was perfect for me. So yes, I have a few things marked off but that's actually really great for me.

Disney Addict Christmas Gifts

"And a very merry Christmas to you!" Nephew Fred - Donald Duck wishes his uncle who has found the Christmas spirit finally a wonderful Christmas. Disney Addicts are interesting people. People who have grown up don't understand our obsession with animated movies that little children watch. They don't understand our numerous Disney trips. But that's okay. If you have one of those people in your life this list is for you!


So what is the best way to approach what to buy? Where to shop? And what are some popular items? All this is answered in this post!

Thanksgiving 2016 Survey

Thursday, November 24, is Thanksgiving in the U.S. We observe this holiday to be thankful for the harvest and for the survival of this country. This is day is mostly families getting together, and quite honestly, eating. Some families say what they are most thankful for, while some families plan out their Black Friday shopping together.



So here is some interesting facts about me. I hope you enjoy this look into my life!


Disney Transportation Options + My Favorite!

One of the biggest perks to me about staying on property at Disney World? Parking my car and not moving it until the end of our trip! It's nothing like a trip to the beach, or to the mountains where you still have to drive everywhere. Disney has the service for you! Now I know some people still drive their cars to the park, even if they stay on property. I'm not really sure why they would do that. You aren't saving time, and it doesn't have near the excitement and experience as Disney Transportation.



So what are the different Disney transportation options? Where can you use certain ones at?

Christmas 2016 Planning

When the last trick or treater goes to sleep, that's when my Christmas season starts. I'm one of those people. Yes, I love Thanksgiving but I keep that confined to my dining room, kitchen, and nook. Those stay decorated for Thanksgiving until Thanksgiving night and then they are overhauled in tinsel, sprigs, and bells. But I have several things already planned out for this holiday season.


From Flylady to The Container Store, to Etsy, to YouTube, and to Pinterest,this is how I have prepared for the holiday season, including Thanksgiving! How in the world have all of these companies helped me prep for the holidays? I'm breaking it down one by one!

Tea Time With Hunter ... Well Wait

Even I am intrigued as to what he has to say.

4 Things Not To Miss At Disney During the Holidays!

My absolute favorite time of year is all around us! Why not experience that Magic of Disney during the holidays?! I promise that you will not regret it! I do recommend making a holiday trip a short one so you do not miss out on the fun going on in your community! But the Christmas celebration at Disney World just can't be beat!



I know others have things that they think can't be missed at Disney during the holidays, but these are mine. These are the ones that give me goosebumps; the ones that I have very fond memories attached to them. We are all different in that respect.

Engagement Story - Frankie & Hunter

What's Mickey without Minnie,
What's Piglet without Pooh,
What's Donald without Daisy,
That's me without you.

Welcome Foolish Mortals to our Engagement Story!





Waking up on my birthday was already different. I was on the RV with Frankie at homecoming. Frankie and I both have a strong passionate love for Alabama football. Homecoming is a big deal to me because this was the school I graduated from with undergrad and masters (soon Ph.D.) But Frankie had something special in mind for my birthday, something I never saw coming.

Yolo: You Only Live Once Be Drug Free Homeschool Edition

Week before last was Red Ribbon Week. I remember doing Red Ribbon Week while I was in school. They would give out red ribbon stickers, saying how drug free was the way to be. However, my children are homeschooled. I wanted them to know the same importance of being drug free even though it is our household environment, and that's understood. I do not even allow people to smoke/vape at my house.


The two tutors/nannies were actually the ones to decide to do a Red Ribbon Week during the homeschooling week. They set up to figure out ways so that the kids could have fun and learn at the same time. Especially in today's time with drug use being so high, no child should not find out the dangers and setbacks that drugs can cause. They came up with five awesome days for Red Ribbon Week:

October 2016 Disney Haul

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Mine has been busy here at Disney World. It is the Food & Wine Half Marathon, and this has been the best marathon weekend I've ever had. We took things pretty easy, didn't rush. Granted we were here just last weekend as well for my family's reunion. Which brings me to today's post. This is my Disney Haul from last weekend with my family it is just the stuff I bought for myself.





I will try to add prices and such. I do have receipts and everything. However, I cannot link to the actual product, but I will link to what shop I bought the item at in Disney World. I did not buy a lot for myself this time
