Snow day here today. HURRAY.

Today I am working on a pillowcase order, picking fabrics for the Disney Jr. Dress and fabrics for a launch.

I also want to rearrange some kitchen cabinets.

I also need to work on the appliqué for 7 months.

Also need to finalize the stroller rental for February.

An actual trip update here…..

I found an awesome rental rate for a Minivan for our trip in February. If you remember I was lamenting the cost of transfers to and from the port. Well I found a minivan for $380 with tax.

I am always leary of sites that don't give you the company you are dealing with but Hotwire promised the car rental agency was in the airport. Low and behold it was Alamo. I am a very happy Momma.

so we leave in under 40 days and nothing is done. I think I will only be doing one or 2 things for Sami. C is reusing her things though I may do a frozen shirt for her. I am having 2 things made for J.

I have some sewing to do this weekend so I hope to have some things this weekend and I need to try on Sami's dresses to see what fits still.

My life has gone insane

So on the trip update

I ordered our Annual Passes last night.
The car is rented.

I have the idea for the fish extender kids gifts.

I have an idea for 2 dresses for Sami

Good thing I have things coming for J and I ordered our fish extender.

I need to get C some capris and shorts for the trip.

Today I am ordering our stroller and our owners lockers.

I have 3 pillowcases and a blanket are on my project table. Hoping to finish them all by Friday.

Hope everyone has a fabulous day. I have some pictures I need to post. Hopefully this week.

Glad to see you are busy... I don't know how you do it all?

How many days until your next trip?

Around 32 days. I just have been focusing on a few other aspects of my life believe it or not.

I have been focusing on my health and fitness and getting J more services and correcting his ankle problem.

I am really trying to find more balance.

Oh trust me - I know you've been busy. I am so proud of you! I can really see the changes in the pictures you've been posting.

So, do you have a goal for before your next trip? And most importantly - do you have a goal for after you return?

I hope you are able to get what you need for J.

My goal for our trip is to enjoy it but not over eat. Also on the boat I am going to make sure I do at least 3 laps a day on the running deck. I am also debating doing the Castaway Cay 5K if G will watch the littles. I may see if C wants to do it. If I maintain on vacay great.

In March I am running a 21 day challenge for the new program coming out so my goal is to loose about 10-15lbs with that before our April trip.

I am trying to figure out a way to bring my shakes with me so I can do that still for breakfast.

Thanks for noticing the changes. I have decided this needs to be the most important things I do for me. More than the sewing which de-stresses me.

Right now I am in a holding pattern with J but we shall see how things go.

So I finally reserved our stroller and scheduled our owners lockers.

I still have to do FE gifts (I am thinking pillowcases with names for the kids) Kind of stumped for the adults.

I am also going to do Magnets for everyone.

I need to call and request a car seat for our rental.

Going to try Sami's dresses on her for this trip. In addition to making 2 new ones but we have some adorable Minnie Clothes from D that match boys made by the fabulous Jennifer from Princess Pie Boutique that will fit now. Yes my baby is wearing 12-18 month clothing.

Also Need to do a Frozen shirt for C and a pillowcase.

See it is turning into crunch time here under one month it is the return of the crazy lists and there is a launch in 2 weeks.

Okay so how about a few pictures.

This is Sami at 7 months


and this is why I am so behind I decided to make my health my utmost priority and I hated our pictures from our October trip.



Hope you all have a fabulous day. I will have some pictures of projects tonight too.
