Not your average suburban mom. I’m more your typical, normal, commonplace, everyday, garden-variety suburban mom. With a thesaurus.

"Luke, if I'm your sister we are in trouble."

Little Miss Independent in the airport.

Facebook Status:  After a week of traveling I have concluded that music is not the only universal language; B.O. communicates pretty clearly as well.

I'm baaaaack! And I need to apologize because I was a big fat liar when I said I was working on a project and couldn't blog.  There was no project.  What I was really doing was spending a week getting my Disney groove on with the offspring. (Not The Offspring.)(My offspring.)(Who are just like the band.)(Except for the whole So-Cal punk thing.)(But they are Pretty Fly.)

I was going to be truthful about my truancy, but apparently you shouldn't announce to the internets when you are going to be out of town, even if you have a strongly worded anti-burgle disclaimer accompanying that information, because it won't be enough to satisfy your husband who is all "why don't you just post our address and code to the garage as well as the exact dates and times of our absence just to help the robbers out more?" because he doesn't trust humanity.  Probably he hasn't seen the Ebay commercial yet, which clearly proves no one would break into your home and steal your stuff like they did ours a few years ago.  So, thanks burglars for creating a world where I am forced to lie about visiting the happiest place on the face of the earth unless you are a child who has eaten crap for three days straight and is so tired and overwhelmed you are literally flailing on the cement lamenting that you have to see the stupid parade in the hot sun because the hubster is a tad paranoid after the aforementioned thievery.

Mulch, Sweat, and Shears - Bandscaping at it's finest.
Can't you totally see me doing this job?

So.  I totally went to Disney World this past week.  It was incredible.  I have officially drunk (drinked?)(drank?)(Help, Kelly G!) the Disney Kool-Aid.  I could spend forever there.  In fact, I've decided that if I wasn't a SAHM then I would be in an awesome 80's cover band that plays in random spots around the Disney parks.

The quick summary before I write other nonsensical more detailed posts about the trip:

This is our cabin.  We stayed with Esther and Ezra
while our next door neighbors (A.K.A. The Grandparents)
hosted Eve and Hosanna.

We stayed in the cabins at Fort Wilderness.  Best.Choice.Ever.  It was really nice to have our own kitchen and a separate bedroom for the kiddos.  We were also smack in the middle of acres and acres of forest, which was a nice change of pace from the craziness of the parks.  Plus we got to take a ferry to Magic Kingdom, so, yeah, I'm on a boat.

We visited Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Typhoon Lagoon.  My favorite was Epcot; I could spend an entire week just taking my time and seeing everything there.  (But I'll probably skip Mission:Space next time I'm there.)(Because the barf bag I had to carry around due to motion sickness totally didn't go with my outfit.)

And I totally met Pooh.  Don't be too jealous.  Also? Mary Poppins, Mulan, Donald freaking Duck, and Gepetto. So, yeah, it's kind of like I know people.

But the ultimate highlight of our trip?

This photo can't contain all the awesome that is me and the hubs fulfilling our Star Wars dreams.  Except that we are posing as siblings here, which is mildly disturbing.  More disturbing?  You can get this image on sheets.  Star Wars photo bedding = romance.


  1. I'm on a boat! I got my flippy floppies! I'm glad you guys had an awesome time. And Star Wars sheets would totally rock!

    1. I freaking love that song, but I had to post the "made for television" version on my blog for the youngster readers ;-)

      Thanks, our trip was incredible. And *rest assured* (giggle) you can order your own set of Star Wars photo bedding if you want. Christmas is coming up ... ;-)

  2. That Star Wars pic has no equal. :). By the way, "drunk" is the one you want.

    1. Thank you - I should have known you would know :)

  3. That Stars Wars pic looks freakin' REAL, man!!! Glad you had fun. Looking forward to catching up on the trip report!

    1. Stephanie! I've missed you :) The hubby nailed that picture, right?
