It's almost time to visit the Mouse!

Mickey Mouse that is! We leave in 2 days to head down to Orlando and Walt Disney World. We still haven't told the girls we are doing too Disney, want it to be a surprise and them not pester us until we go. So far so good, they both think we are going to Florida to visit their grandpa. He lives just a few hours away from Disney.

We have found the perfect way to surprise them! We were shopping at Walmart the other day and found these cute gift bags shaped like Cinderellas castle. On the front they have doors that open and inside is several of the princesses. Score! Inside we will put some Disney tshirts we bought before xmas at a good deal, their autograph books, pens, some cameras and a few other knick knacks! I can't wait to see their faces when they figure out we are going to Disney!

We are driving down to Tifton Ga on Thurs and then Friday morning getting up and driving the last 4 hours to Orlando. We are staying at Coronado Springs Resort, it's so beautiful. I will be sure to share tons of pictures when we get back.

Have a great week everyone!

May Showers Bring May Flowers?

I know that isn't correct, but all we have had is May showers since May started. Yesterday we were so lucky to have a F2 tornado hit Madison/Huntsville. First of all, we are ok, there was no damage to our house or property. Others not so lucky, several people in our neighborhood lost trees in the winds/storm yesterday. The ones here were snapped off rather than uprooted like many others. We have had so much rain that even 18 ft pine trees were uprooted! Yesterdays storm wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been, but it was scary.

Other news, it's May, the busy month of holidays and celebrations! We'll start off with Mothers Day later this week, my birthday next week on Friday, we leave for our Disney trip on the 21st and then celebrate our 9th Anniversary on the 27th of this month. Poor hubby lol I think my car and our trip will be the presents received. I am excited about the trip though, only 2 weeks to go and we'll be in beautiful Orlando for 8 days! We still haven't told the girls yet, so trying to figure out when we will. I am trying to think of some surprise...right now Jess thinks we are going to see our FIL who lives in Venice, a couple hours from Disney.

I am also in the 2 week wait (2ww) and those who understand that, know what I mean. I will hopefully know around 18th one way or the other. Fingers crossed.

Stay tuned!
