Happy Meme Monday: Monday After Easter

We’ve had a nice weekend, with church on Saturday, a nice gathering on Sunday for the kids and today my son turns 9 years old – let’s not give up now on the sweets! Anyone else kids into Mario Brothers?! It’s the ‘it’ theme around here right now and I have to say, I’m not complaining. I loved Nintendo as a kid and that was my favorite game to play.

I love this Easter meme here, and I will add that arriving to church this time of year also means arriving at least one hour prior to find parking. And that waking up on the Monday after Easter Sunday is like waking up from a short sugar coma.

Reblog Wednesday: The Miracle Of The Notre Dame Fire — Traditional Catholic Femininity 🌹🙏🌹

I believe you are already aware of this no matter your religious beliefs, on Monday, April 15, 2019 the Notre-Dame de Paris (Our Lady Of Paris) Cathedral experienced a devastating fire. The 850 year old cathedral has been given many different restoration time frames – a professor of medieval cathedrals stating it would take about two decades to complete. It has also been said they will be closing it for about 5 to 6 years following the fire as it has weakened the cathedral. As of today there have been donations pouring in for the restoration, nearly $1 billion dollars.

In this combination of photos, flames and smoke rise as the spire on the Notre Dame Cathedral collapses during a fire in Paris, Monday, April 15, 2019. 

The post I share with you today from Trad Cat Fem brings you in great detail the history of the Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral. I invite you to read as I found it to be so informative, seeing before and after the fire pictures from inside the cathedral, and seeing pictures of the real Crown of Thorns that have been saved from the fire.

Happy Meme Monday: Easter Egg Hunt

I can’t remember a time when my kids found what they were looking for after I told them exactly  where they can find it. Because when it comes to finding things, everyone seems to be unable to find it, unless you place it on  their hands. Yes, it’s that  bad. Does this happen in your home with your spouse or kids?! Is finding things now considered an art or talent of some sort?!

Happy Meme Monday: Future Husband Says

The truth shall set you free – or so they say! The reality of it all is that no family is perfect. We either have outside noise, or the noise is coming from our own homes, seeking perfection is unrealistic. My family is far from it and this meme here is just a reminder of what we must keep in mind pre and post wedding.

The Journey Continues: Toy Story 4 + Toy Story Land

Our family is excited for Toy Story 4 to be released June 21st. I’m also overjoyed to know that director Josh Cooley has confirmed that the late comedian Don Rickels, the voice of Mr. Potato Head is still part of the franchise with this fourth installment. There are a few new characters, faces and voices like actors Keanu Reeves, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Micheal Key and Tony Hale as ‘Forky’ – Bonnie’s new friend and toy. If you’re a fan of the franchise, you don’t want to miss the trailer!

Also, if you have a chance to visit Walt Disney World, go ahead and head over to Hollywood Studios’ Toy Story Land. It debuted on June 30, 2018 and still has guests lining up to ride Slinky Dog Dash, Alien Swirling Saucers and snacking at Woody’s Lunch Box. Toy Story Land is meant to be a ‘toys-eye-view’ from Andy’s backyard. Unfortunately for that reason, there is very little shade throughout which can be refreshing on a hot Orlando day. If you go, be sure to wear sunscreen, take an umbrella or a hat to keep cool.

Are you a fan of Toy Story, which is your favorite so far – I’d love to know!

Six Dollar Store Essentials For Disney Trip

Six Dollar Store Essentials For Disney Trip

I want to share with you these items that I consider to be essential  for any Disney trip / vacation. The best part of all is that they can all  be purchased from the Dollar Store.

This bottle caddy – I found this one on Amazon which also looks great. The plastic gets hooked onto the top part of any water bottle and it can be carried around your neck or across your body. The kids love carrying this and when they don’t – it happens, simply place the water bottle in the backpack.

You want to take rain ponchos because you just never  know if it’ll rain – these are from Amazon, and small trash bags these are from Amazon. The children are constantly snacking at the parks and there isn’t always a trash bin around, simple start to fill up a bag, and as soon as a trash bin is in sight, simply toss the bag away! The children will also snack in the car on the way to Disney World, and all the trash in placed in these small bags. Also, yes I would agree, these are not  the best in quality, but again, this will keep you dry, and considering the overpriced ponchos being sold at the parks, you can’t  beat the price!

2018-08-10 16.31.18

These pop-up hampers – this 2 pack is from Amazon. I will usually purchase two, one for myself and my husband and the other for the children. When we arrive to our rooms, I’ll set these up in a corner. Then when it’s time to pack up and go, we simply pack these in our vehicle. It makes going back home so much more enjoyable. I get home, the clothes are in the hampers, put them in the laundry room, wash, and done!  No more dirty clothes mixed in with clean clothes.

2018-08-09 23.06.04

If you’re planning to stay longer than a few days – say 3 days, I’d suggest not over packing instead take your own detergent and wash clothes. The Disney resorts have self service laundry facilities on property. Just so you know, if purchasing detergent from the vending machine they offer are a single-use packet for $1 each. This bottle is enough for about three to four loads, which is more than plenty. On this day / trip, there was only this brand, but the Dollar Store carries other known brands such as Tide and Gain.

2018-08-09 23.06.19

And lastly, little ones enjoy all things glow in the dark, so these are perfect for the night time Happily Ever After show at Magic Kingdom or  any other fireworks and nighttime spectaculars at Disney World.

Do you have any must haves or essentials you take on your trip to Disney World? Please share!

Reblog Wednesday: How to Set Boundaries with a Toxic Person — MakeItUltra™ Psychology

It’s rather a bit unsettling to think of the need to cut ties with someone. At times they’re friendships or even a family member. As I continue to grow, I’ve realized what I want, what I will accept and will not tolerate in friendships and overall relationships. I believe this to be an internal battle also because I was taught to love thy neighbor, to accept people as they are, and to love in the dimension of the cross. But what happens when others no longer serve a positive purpose in my life, when they no longer lift me, but rather break me. Please, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely believe we will have our moments with others when we will disagree, and we’ll forgive one another and move on. But what if this is recurring and happening constantly?! What if I consider myself a good friend and yet have come to realize a friendship in my life isn’t reciprocating the same level of love and respect for our friendship. You know, that one sided friendship, do you cut ties, do you call it quits or do you continue to accept their behavior?!

This week I bring you this wonderful post on the matter by the very talented Dr. Perry over at Make It Ultra. He lists a few suggestions he uses in his practice on how to create healthy boundaries with others. He first mentions to be honest with the other person about your feelings, not adding to the negativity and not fearing the loss of a relationship that just feeds you negativity. If you haven’t read the full post, please stop by his blog!
