4 MONTHS!!!!


I'm so excited especially since we original started to plan this trip before our little girl was born.


Alright, I need help... I have a hard time making up my mind (all the time). Everyone knows about the Tea with mom and how I want to do something special since her actual birthday so..... Should I order the Chocolate Slipper Dessert or the Mini - Castle Cake??



In other news, we started Potty Training today... please pray and wish pixie dust for me and DD. I really hope that this will work.

for 4 months!!! I'm telling ya, it's gonna go by so fast!!

I've seen pictures of the Slipper, but not the Castle. Is it cool, cause I think a Castle cake would be awesome! Not that I don't love chocolate, but that shoe is A LOT of chocolate!

Good luck with potty training! We had no success when we tried earlier in the summer, so we're gonna give it another shot next week! Let me know if you have any tips!

Congrats on the milestone.

I wish I could help with the dessert, but I never heard of either of them. That being said, there are few things on this planet, that chocolate doesn't improve.

I'm getting ready to post pictures of both.

Thanks. I will let you know how it goes we had a few accidents this morning but I am hoping for a good evening. I give her stickers as her reward for going and we have a chart in the bathroom. Good Luck to you as well!

I am hoping to do both a life update and a Disney update tomorrow. Hopefully Annabelle will do a good nap so I can.

We will start with a life update! Its been busy around our house with birthdays, a wedding, and projects in the house. Plus last week my filling fell out the same one that did last month so now I have to get a crown and the price is well.... It is what it is, we are going to wait until we get our quote from the insurance just so we can dispute it with them if it changes and then I will be getting it done next month. Also, Potty Training did not go well and got to a point where she would scream if we tried to put her on so we are taking a break. We went to a wedding for DH's cousin at the beginning of the month and I want to share some of the pictures that the photographer of the wedding sent me of Annabelle.

With another little boy at the wedding




With her cousin


With her cousin and Papaw








That's all of the wedding and we had a good time.

I am going to contiue in the next post because I have more pictures and I don't want to run out of space.

House project

I will not bore you all with all the house projects we have been doing. I thought you would like to see Annabelle's Bathroom which is Pooh and we recently finished!!! Woohoo!!!!!

Here is one of my niece and mom while we were working on it






























Hope you like it! Sorry there are so many pictures but to get everything I had to take a lot because its a small bathroom so I can only back up so far. Plus its the first time I really am getting to decorate a house of ours so I am excited! It definately feels like a home not just a house.

I will be back later today to do a Disney update and maybe even Day 2.

Disney Update!!!

We got DD an autograph book or I should say found!





Anyone recognize that??

That is actually James' (DH) from when he was a kid and he tore out the pages he used when he was little lol so now DD will use it this trip.

I have mine from then too and its exactly the same except mine still has the autographs in it.



Also Disney related just not to this trip lol. My nieces were at Disney's Vero Beach resort and sent me a picture of an adoptable turtle I wish I could call and apodt it just cuz of the name.

Day 2 Plans

Day 2

Get up probably around 7:30, eat breakfast in the room and get ready.

Head to DHS by walking.

Meet a few characters.
possibly do Disney Jr (but maybe not, DD didnt like this last trip)
maybe do Beauty and Beast live on Stage.

Start heading to GF by 12:30 at the latest
Arrive look around and explore while waiting for DNana and DPopPop.
Mom and I check in and have Tea
DD, DH, and DPopPop go get lunch and whatever else.

After Tea, meet back up.

In no particular order
See DNana and DPopPop room at BLT
Get a Picture with the Mickey's Statue at the Contemporary (Hopefully all of us including DNana and DPopPop)
Look @ the Contemporary Christmas Decorations

Head back to HS and see the Osbourne Lights and F! if we didn't the night before, if we did head to MK to see Wishes. Dinner in there somewhere.

Back to the room for the night.

New Bags!!!!

I am so excited. I ordered new duffel bags for DD and myself for this trip because DD didn't have a suitcase/bag of her own and my suitcase/duffel bad I had gotten eaten by a mouse as a bed for her mouse babies at the last house. Oh how thankful I am to no longer be dealing with a mouse/mice. I love love our new home. The other reason is we are now 99.9 % sure we are driving and taking the truck so I need to be able to smush around the bag to get them to fit so duffels are better than suitcases.

Here is DD's bag




My bag



and a picture for fun (DD took it)

Just a quick update... DD and I are going for a quick trip Wednesday - Friday to visit my best friend and her son (5 months older than DD) in Statesville, NC. Please pray for us as we travel this is the first trip just the two of us. It is also the first trip I have taking by myself (only adult) since I have gotten married and I'm nervous about the drive.

Your kids are so adorable!!

Love the autograph book. I was about to get bummed that I had bought DD's earlier because I thought the one you posted was a new retro style book! Nope, you got the real deal.

Re: Desserts. Wouldn't be able to pick! They both look so beautiful and YUMMY!
