Does anyone else find it ironic/somewhat comical that I possibly gave myself a concussion on the day I was switched from my mom’s good insurance to my own that only covers ‘catastrophic events?’ No? Just me?



(The door frame leading to our upstairs is much lower than we’re used to. Joe and I have both bonked our heads on it a handful of times, but I hit my head extra hard last night and have some symptoms of a concussion this morning. Fun!)


Now let’s just hope I feel better by Friday! I’m sure I will.

Also, can we talk for a second about Jojo’s poor decision last night on the Bachelorette finale? Whyyyy, Jojo, whyyy?!

Shout-out to the Disney GIF app for existing.

ps. Yes, friends and family – if my head still hurts when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll go get checked out.


Bibbidi Bobbidi Birthday!

A few days ago I learned that Joe’s mom and sister are taking our niece to Disney World for her birthday, which of course resulted in me bombarding them with info, info, and more info. I’m so excited for them, and wish I was able to take a couple days off of work to tag along! I may or may not have basically planned their entire trip in 30 minutes. I really would make an excellent Disney Vacation Planner, just sayin’.

Anyway! As soon as the big details were determined (hotel, which parks which days, etc.) Joe and I decided we would gift our pink loving, princess loving niece a princess-y experience at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! What better way to remember your first trip to Disney World, right? 🙂

Unfortunately there were no available spots at Magic Kingdom for they day they’ll be in that park, but I’ll be calling errrrrrr’day to see if anyone has cancelled…avoiding the 3 hour detour that comes with traveling to and from Disney Springs.) Sigh.

Of course I also had to make a special certificate/invitation type thing to send in preparation for their trip, and I’m quite happy with how it turned out, so I’m sharing it with all of you in case you want one for the princess in your life…and if you need help changing out information – I could probably have that arranged 😉

Eep! I’m seriously so excited for them. I can’t wait to be able to bring our children for the first time – it’ll be so great. But in the meantime, Joe and I will just have to keep going on our own…no complaints there!


nightmare fuel…

It’s Halloween-time! That means I should have nightmares of ghosts, goblins, and maybe everything that happened on this week’s episode of American Horror Story, right?

Not quite.

“Nothing is more wonderful than the imagination, for in a moment, you can experience a beautiful fantasy or an exciting adventure. But beware, nothing is more powerful than the imagination, for it can also expand your greatest fears into an overwhelming nightmare. Are the powers of Mickey’s incredible imagination strong enough and bright enough to withstand the evil forces that invade Mickey’s dream?”

Oh, Fantasmic. It’s like you know me.

In case you hadn’t caught on by now, I love Disney World. So when I started having (essentially) nightmares about what could go wrong with our December trip, I was caught a little off guard! Who’d’ve thought that Disney trip excitement would manifest itself so negatively?! Sigh. Over the past few weeks I’ve found myself waking up after Joe has left for work, super anxious/upset/worried because I had just woken up from a dream where:

  1. It’s the end of our second day in the parks and I realize we have yet to ride ANY rides for some reason (I’ve had this dream 3 times now…)
  2. We forgot to get our ‘just married’ buttons (okay so this one wouldn’t be the end of the world)
  3. Terrorists of some sort have taken over Cinderella’s castle – while we were eating dinner there
  4. Fantasmic was cancelled (we have reservations for the VIP dinner experience at Brown Derby)
  5. We were trapped on Aladdin’s Flying Carpets and had to stay in our carpet overnight
  6. Dole Whips no longer existed

Our trip is on my mind pretty much 24/7, so I guess it makes sense that it also infiltrates my dreams, and the likelihood of any of the dreams coming true is slim to none…but goodness, brain – enough is enough! 😛

Despite these ridiculous dreams, I get butterflies in my stomach pretty much any time I think about going to Disney with Joe, and then giddy about the impending birthday surprises I have up my sleeve (bwahaha) — I can’t explain it, I get excited about going with my friends and family, but nothing like how I’m feeling about going with Joe. Maybe it just means I married the right person 😉  – but for now Disney on Ice will have to fill the Disney void in my life, while we anxiously wait for the next two months to go by!
