So our countdown until the 'start of the school year' has FINALLY finished! (Woohoo!) My two oldest kiddos are back in school and loving it. I still have my two youngest kiddos at home though of course. Over the last couple of weeks, my 3 yr. old has managed to conquer potty training.... and life has gotten a bit easier for me now that he has 'mastered the potty!' Yay!

But now our family is starting a NEW COUNTDOWN --- till our first ever trip to Disney World! We are leaving VERY soon and we are only taking our two oldest (leaving the 3 yr. old and 1 yr. old with grandparents for a week). To say we are EXCITED would be the understatement of the century! You would probably laugh your heads off if you knew how much research I've done - trying to learn everything I can about the parks! WAHAHAHA.... I am such a nerd! I know it! But.... until I started looking into WDW - I didn't even realize that there are 4 parks to see! (And 2 water parks to boot!)

Woohoo!!!!!! If any of you have last minute 'tips' for me.... let me know SOON!
Hey.... so check out my superstar husband up above here out playing golf and 'hobb-nobbing' with some of the players from the Portland Trailblazers Basketball team! LOL! I really don't have a clear idea about how the invite happened.... I just know that Matt was in heaven! Hee hee hee.... Matt is on the far left - right next to Trailblazer player: Brandon Roy. And on the far right is another Trailblazer: Martell Webster. Obviously the guys in the middle are NOT basketball players..... (LOL!) just other business guys like my hubby.

In other news.... Kim Broedelet has a lovely new kit out TODAY (25% off for a limited time) called 'SPRING PASSION.'

This kit is full of beautiful papers and gorgeous 'springy' elements! You can go grab a kit sampler over on Kim's blog today.... and if you want to - you can download a QP I've put together for you as well! Hope you can find a use for it.

Here is the download link:

Hope you are all having a great week. And I'll be posting a bit more before our WDW trip... so keep those tips coming if you have 'em! Thx! MWAH!

Disney world sound like so much fun! you'll have a blast I'm sure. My husband and I just went to Florida this June, and we loved it. I really don't have tips for you tho. Just don't go when its too hot like we did! :)

Ohhh! I'm jealous (in a good way) - I really want to get my family to Disney as my oldest is already 12 and won't be interested much longer... I eagerly await your Disney update and the better prepared you are the better the trip should go. You sound prepared (understatement?!). Thanks for visiting myblog!

Beautiful kit TFS. I hope you have fun on your Disney trip! I live in FL 45 min from Orlando. I am sad to say I do not have any tips because most the time we visit it is only for a few hours which was prior to the baby. The baby is too young to go yet but I am counting down the time till we can go with him! HAVE FUN

Hey Beth! I'm jealous about Disney World - that's one place I haven't been yet but I do want to go! My sister & her family went last summer and had a fantastic time, as I'm sure you will.

I have been there twice and each time we had to go to The Hoop Dee Doo Revue. It is a great time! It is a little expensive but worth every single penny! The first time we went once and the second time we went twice because we loved it so much the first time! Even the children will love it. It is just wonderful! Don't forget to go to It's A Small World. That is just gorgeous. Country Bear Jamboree is awesome for children and adults. If you want to know about anything please feel free to email me! I get so excited talking about it. LOL! I went twice in a year and a half and want to go again so bad! We didn't even have any children with us. LOL! Oh, thanks so much for the freebie too! LOL!
