Instagram Friday: Aww Gawrsh

As I’ve mentioned before, I was at Disney World this past weekend.  I had a great time!  I’ve got posts coming up shortly about where I stayed and the parks I visited.  This week’s Instagram Friday makes me laugh every time I see the picture.


That’s me and Goofy.  Now, I haven’t been to Disney since I was in the first grade, so I was extremely excited to meet some of the characters.  So on my last day, I was on line to meet Goofy.  My kid was on line for a ride with his dad so it was just me taking pictures with him.  That is was he did when he first saw me 🙂  We had a good time for the few minutes I had.  Rubbing his ears, telling me how pretty I am, you know, the usual.  Overall, I had an amazing time, even though it was only for a few days.


Instagram Friday: The Most Magical Place On Earth

I’m excited about this week’s Instagram Friday.  It’s a sneak peek as to what I will be doing this weekend.


As you are reading this, I am currently sitting in an airport waiting to board a flight.  Where am I going?  Disney!!!!!  I haven’t been there since I was in first grade.  First grade!!  I’m soooo excited!!!

One of my boys goes with his family a bunch of times a year, and this time around, they asked if I can join them since dad will be busy at a softball tournament.  My response?  “Um, heck yea!!”  Then I asked my hubby {not that I needed permission, but you know…I thought it would be nice to let him know my plans}.

I will make sure to take tons of pictures and do a recap.  What I ate, rides, etc.  I also plan on doing a “What I Packed For A Weekend At Disney” post.  I was looking through Pinterest, and there wasn’t much.  Lots of extended stay stuff, but not a weekend.  Especially during this time of year.

Anyone have any recommendations for rides, restaurants, shops, etc.?  I don’t remember much from the last time I went, but I’m sure everything is different now.

Have a good weekend everyone!!

Instagram Friday: Happy Meaty New Year!

The first Instagram Friday of the year.  Of course, it has to be New Year related right?


That’s Meaty.  He’s my in-laws’ dog.  Any chance my mother in law, sister in law, and I can dress him up, we take it.  He lets us torture him as long as we give him a treat afterwards.  For New Year’s, we took off his regular collar and put on a bow tie.  we felt it needed a little something more, so my mother in law whipped up a white collar and a shirt bib in a matter of minutes using felt and velcro.  Isn’t he the cutest thing?!?  Of course, I may be a little biased.

Instagram Friday: Knock Knock! Whooo Whoose There?

I was pretty clever with my title huh?  If you haven’t figured it out yet, I was an owl for Halloween.

My Halloween was fun.  A food filled party in my classroom followed by trick or treating with one of my kiddos (not mine, just someone special who I’ve worked with since he was 5…hes now 12) and a lovely dinner party with his family and friends.  I’m stuffed and sluggish today, so I’m really looking forward to sleeping in a little and cleaning up the mess I made while making my costume.

Have a good weekend!

P.S. I should probably state that I was not approached or compensated by Instagram.  This is just a reason for me to take more pictures as I live life.  “Be in the moment.”
