Walt Disney World

I am so excited. Last week I was going through Disney World With Draws, you Disney lovers (Ani) know what I mean. I requested a quote from The Magic For Lessfor a mini vacation. 5 nights, 4 park days, two travel days, in the Value season. When Jessica (my travel agent of choice) emailed me back the deal was great, we are talking less then $700 per person including Food, Hotel, transportation from Airport to Hotel & Back and Park admission. So I Thought real hard and drafted an email to Pete asking him if he would go with me. Now he has told me time and time again he had no interest in Disney World (atleast until he had kids), so I had also thought up a back up plan of getting my friend Crystal and Dakoda to go. He would be free everywhere since he is only two. Well Pete surprised when he wrote this back “I would be honored to accompany you to the Magic Kingdom, since it is your favorite place in the world”. Well I almost fell off my chair. A. He agreed to go & B. He called it the “Magic Kingdom” instead if “Disneyland”. I have been correcting him for years as to the difference of Disneyland (California) and Disney World (Florida). He learned (or picked up on) all on his own I guess that the Magic Kingdom was in the Florida parks. So I am excited beyond belief! We are going February 1-6. I prefer January, but we are going to Arizona this year for Christmas and the week after so January was pushing it. I have been in February before and loved it, nice and cool, low crowds etc. Now I am budgeting like a mad women to afford this trip. Arizona is going to take us for a pretty penny and the Disney trip needs to be paid in full before Christmas. I can do it though. I know I can. Then I can save spending money all of January after Christmas and Arizona are over.

Guess Where We Are Going???

Wonderful Weekend

I had a wonderful weekend. Saturday Crystal and I went up to Nikki’s house in PA. It was a good day. We went to eat and the kids played and we looked through all these old funny pictures from our wild days. We did actually have some, parties, drinking, etc. It was fun to remember! Here is a Video of Dakoda giving us the eyes and some pictures of the kids:

With this ring………. Ok Ok , I am not enga…

With this ring……….

Ok Ok , I am not engaged or married. My sister and I were sorting through things of my mom’s and we found her jewlery box. We split up the stuff evenly and I found these BEAUTIFUL RINGS! They were my Great Grandmothers wedding set from her first marriage to my Grandmother’s father. I never met him because he died when my grandmother was only 3. I did know and love my grandmother’s step father though! SO anyways we found these dirty grimy old rings and I set to cleaning them up. I did a pretty good job and I love them! LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I am trying to talk Pete into using them when we get married. He isn’t sure and wants to buy me my own new rings, but I worry if they will ever be as pretty! I would like to replace the diamond with a princess cut stone, and then it would truly be the perfect ring!

Harper’s Ferry This weekend has been a very full …

Harper’s Ferry

This weekend has been a very full one! We went to the movies, we saw the Desent and it scared the bejeasus our of me. We also went to the mall, Walmart, Target, The eye doctor, out to dinner and to Harper’s Ferry, WV. My cousin lives there and it is only about an hour drive from Baltimore. We had great ribs and frozen custard a few blocks from the water and we walked around and checked things out, Pete has never been to WV. It was fun just being together. We do so much talking while driving in the car! My dad thanks it’s nuts we commute together because it is a bit out of my way, but we do it because we like the 10 minutes or so we have in the mornings and afternoons to just talk. You can’t do much else in the car and there are no distractions. but anyways it was all in all a good weekend, but now I am tired! LOL Here are some pictures:




This week has been NUTS! All this week it has bee…

This week has been NUTS!

All this week it has been crazy at work. Which is a good thing since the busier we are the bigger my paycheck it! I just don’t have much down time at work to post and my computer is wonky at home right now until out phone lines get fixed. Although I am kinda liking not having the phone ring all the time. LOL

Weekend Shower This Weekend we went to New Jersey…

Weekend Shower

This Weekend we went to New Jersey for a Baby shower for Pete’s friends E & K. They just adopted a sweet Baby Girl. Well actually like 2 months ago. She is beautiful. I can’t post any pictures of her until the adoption is final. Weird rules, but hey!


They have suffered infertility for 4 years, this is a dream come true for them. They got so many great gifts. I am jealous, I want a shower, I have planned so many of them and attended so many of them in the past two years, I want a turn! We had a great weekend though, it is good to visit friends! For the shower one of the gifts K’s mom got her was a Cabagge Patch Kid. K wants to go through the “Adoption” process of the CPK with J when she is 4 or so. K thinks it will be great to have her learn about adoption since adoption brought this great little girl to E & K’s family’s.

Here are some other pictures from the shower, this is Pete’s namesake and godson, Reese. He is getting SO very big! He was a tiny baby when he was born, just over 5 pounds. He is very expresive and seems to like Pete right well! I love the look on his little face in the picture of them together. Every time I see Pete around kids the alarm on my biological (alarm) clock goes off. I can’t wait tosee him with our kids! I know he will be great!
