On another note, I've been very busy training for my first 5K race, my friend (who also has 3 little boys) and I have to decided to get off our hiney's and get our bodies (or what is left of them!! LOL!) in shape and I've always wanted to run, so here goes nothing. I'm not a runner (ran in early HS, but it's been 20 years!) so this is a big deal and I'm not one to exercise, other than walking, so I'm proud to say I've been training for a month now and sticking to it. My legs already feel stronger and so far, I'm enjoying it. Our race is 5/17, so I've got just over a month to get to where I need to be....say a prayer I can do it!!

I just noticed my ticker now says less that 5 months until my trip!! It's going to fly by these next few months...between planning, school getting out and summer, it will be here before I know it. I can't wait!! Thanks for reading along!!

Happy birthday, Todd!!!

Good for you, training for the race! That is awesome!!!

Less than five months?? Yippee!!

Nope, nothing special tonight, both boys had baseball practice, so we were split, DH being with DS13 and me with DS8. We had a dinner for family on Friday. DS got to pick the menu and open gifts from grandparents & aunts and uncles. In lieu of a big party with his friends this year, he opted for new bedroom furniture instead. He graduated from bunk beds to a queen, so he's in heaven!

I hope Todd's birthday celebration went well!

That will be me in a few years trying to figure out which way to go with which boy!! LOL!! Your DS bedroom furniture sounds so grown up, how nice, a great gift!! Todd had a nice little family celebration, itw as caotic, as anything is in our house these days with three little boys......

You're right Leighan, we do have a lot of birthdays! But unfortunately, we're not done! Cole will be 2 on 6/27, so one more to go!! LOL!! Ethan is in November, then Lucas in December, mine in January and then Todd.....and it starts all over.....heehee!! Thanks for your being proud of me for my training....it's tough but I'm SO glad I'm sticking with it, this is the longest I've stuck to anything and I'm pretty proud of myself. There are always a million excuses as to why I can't find time, but it's time I found time for myself, too. Which is a very hard thing to do as a Mom....as you well know!!! I hope I stick to it..it's been a great outlet for me, as well.

13 more hours!!! You better go pack girlie! Are you going to sneak in a quick TR within your TR so we can hear all about it? Pleeaaasseee? Have a wonderful time and safe travels!!!

Hope to update more later...off to Gymnastics for Lucas but Todd is home late toinght, so maybe after the kids go to bed. Hope you're all well!!!

Purchases to date....

Now I know my trip is over 4 months away, but I've been busy picking some things up for it....better to be prepared, right?

I made some purchases last night through Disneyshopping.com, they had some great sales plus I got a 25% off code, even off sale stuff, so figured I'd see if I could get some things. They had adults tshirts 3 for $20! I thought I would surprise Mom & Jodi with a little gift when we got there, not sure they will wear them to the parks or not, but even for bed, they are fun and the price was right!!

This is what I got for Mom...


Here is Jodi's....she's not a traditional kind of girl, so thought this was fitting for her....


and for myself....thought this was cute!


I also found some cute Mickey sweatshirts on clearance and decided to pick them up for the boys, these will be given to them when I get home from my trip. Saves me (a lot!) of money while on vacation, they are Disney and thought it was a nice inexpensive way to let them know Mommy was thinking of them while she was gone. I'll probably get them all something else small while there. They were only $6.99 on clearance!!


I also have picked myself up my 1st Vera Bradley bag for my trip....I bought the mini hipster in the Kennsington pattern, I thought it would match with most outfits (brown and black toned). Even though it's the mini version, it's fits SO much....I tried it out on a quick trip to Boston with my Mom about a month ago. It fits all the essentials...camera, cell phone, money, credit cards, sunglasses, chapstick, small bottle of sunscreen, gum...what else does a Mom need? Especially a Mom without kids on vacation!! I got this Ebay for about $15, bargain, huh?!!


And last but not least....my friend, LL, mentioned on her PTR that a store here in MA had Crocs on sale for $10 a pair!! So I made a quick trip out to see what was left....I ended up with these...not my first choice, but they have grown on me and thought they would look cute with capris, especially!! And although I haven't worn them out and about, in the house they were super comfy!! I have a pair of brown mary janes I bought for my 1st family trip and loved them, I wore them on my last two trips and loved them for Disney, they are pretty warn out at this point, so I may need to see whatelse I can find before September. Aren't they cute?


That's it so far, but off to a great start, huh? That's all for now....I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

I love the Crocs you got! Those will look very cute with capris. I have been eyeing that style for awhile now.

I had some kids I had to buy souvenirs for when I went in 2005. I ended up getting some stuffed animals on clearance at the Disney Store along with some towels and they never knew any different! Plus I didn't have to lug home souvenirs.

The tees are super cute! I love them, especially the Tink one for you.

Ooops. Too obsessed for my own good. Love the t-shirt you got for yourself. Score on the sweatshirts for the kids. I love your crocs- they're adorable! I didn't end up shopping yesterday but I think I may now...

Congrats on signing up for your 1st 5k. Before you know it, you will be coming up with excuses to do Disney races - LOL!

The only races I have ever done were Disney races, and to be honest, the main (ok, only!) reason I signed up was because it was yet another Disney experience! Nothing like having yet another excuse to take a trip to WDW!!!
