Hi everyone! I know it's been almost a week since I posted, but we were hanging with the Big Cheese down in Orlando. We really had a fabulous time and thought I'd recap just a little for everyone. If you have any questions about Disney, please feel free to ask. I learned a lot about how everything works in wonderland while I was there.

We stayed at The Contemporary, and it was so worth it. The room was awesome, the pool was great and being that close to everything was extremely convenient. We loved riding the Monorail and my favorite park was The Magic Kingdom.

We didn't rush to the park each morning, because the little man (and we) were tired every morning and I let him sleep in. We would get to the parks around 9:00 - 10:00 and stay until 3:00 or 4:00, then we went back to the hotel and hung out at the pool and at the lake. A couple of nights we went back out around 8:00 to catch fireworks and parades. The little man got into the pin trading, because his cousins had them - so my four-year-old was walking around Disney with his little pin lanyard and about $50 worth of pins stuck to it. It was so cute.

We roasted marshmallows on the lake beach at night and watched a couple of the outside movies they played by the pool. The week went by so fast and about 7 hours into our drive home, the little guy started screaming for Mickey. He wanted to go back.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
