EASTER 2020

EASTER 2020

Easter this year was different. Lance and I got all dressed up (like we normally would do) but we had to stay home because of the corona virus. No biggie because we had our own Easter party at home. I made french toast for us and then we spent the rest of the day sipping on mimosas on the back porch while having an impromptu dance party. The best part about being home during a holiday is being able to kick off your shoes when needed. Haha Which makes for a better dance party. 🥂😜💞

ORLANDO FOR HARMONY’S 20th BIRTHDAY 🎂💜🏰

ORLANDO FOR HARMONY’S 20th BIRTHDAY 🎂💜🏰

It was Harmony’s Birthday last week (March 2) and when we celebrate we go BIG! -So a trip to Orlando it was! Nana and I stayed together in a cabin on the same campground as Harmony and her crew. This made meeting up easy. We had a golf cart and could get to all of the Disney attractions via bus or boat. So convenient!

The evening we got in we met up at Rainforest Cafe for the birthday dinner! The next day we all went to Hollywood Studios. Aunt Jenny bossed I mean lead us around. 😜 We stayed in Star Wars: Galaxy Edge most of the time. I’m not a big fan of Star Wars (sorry y’all) but wow it was unreal! I didn’t get too may pictures at this park because I missed Harmony and was spending much needed cousin time with her.

Nana and I had the last day to ourselves. We went to Magic Kingdom! We didn’t go on too many rides but we made sure we didn’t miss a shop in the park. We’ve seen every retail item Disney has to offer.

VALENTINES DAY HOME 2020

VALENTINES DAY HOME 2020

Happy Valentines Day! I love this holiday because it gives me a reason to decorate everything in pink and heart shapes! Of course it’s all about love too but I like to celebrate that on the daily. I think we all need to see some heart shapes and pretty colors in our life this time of year because everything outside is dead and it’s cold. Not exactly the most picturesque scene if you ask me. Lance and I are going to a cooking class this evening to celebrate Valentines Day. We haven’t been out just the two of us in a while so i’m excited!! (we always have our third wheel- Mac lol) And the fun doesn’t end there because we are going to a concert on Sunday!! Whoo! WE. ARE. PUMPED!!
