Hoarding!

If you knew me in real life, you would know that I throw everything away.  Not because I don’t care, but because I feel that an uncluttered home really calms me down.

Yother day I found this piece of paper. 


I’ve been holding onto it because of the super cute cartoon of Dumbo at the top.


When I flip the paper over, I realized it was from 2007! I’ve been caring around this piece of paper for nine years.


So I finally took a few pictures of cute little Dumbo, and threw it away. Hoarding resolved.

Shutterfly

I made 4 Shutterfly photo albums of Bubba’s first year.  A 0 to 3 months album, 3 to 6 months album etc …

I wanted to make more, but I’m really lazy, and these photo books to be kind of expensive.

But now I really wish I made more, because Bubba loves looking at them.

She always takes my hand, pulls me into my bedroom, points at the bookshelf, and says “baby!”  (meaning “I want to look at the baby books”)

How can you say no to that?

Bubba @ Epcot (DVC Member Lounge

It was my first time at the DVC member lounge inside Epcot.

I loved it!

The entrance is kind of hidden, since you have to go inside the figment store to get there. And the figment store is pretty much hidden behind the ride.

Free unlimited soda, air-conditioning, cozy seats, in a really large area for Bubba to run around in.  I hope they’ll make more lounges in different theme parks.

My car decals

For no reason at all, I’ve decided to share my car details:

I bought little Domo here at Epcot about five years ago.  I saved it until I got my new car (2 years ago).  It’s kind of embarrassing because I actually have no idea who don’t know actually is.  I just think he’s really cute.


This next ones also a little embarrassing, I don’t mind when other people have those stick figure families, but I was swore that I would never ever have one.  Then I found this on sale at Disney for a dollar.  I could not resist.  

It’s cracking pretty badly, so I don’t think it will last much longer.


I bought this little beauty on our honeymoon in 2013.  It also looks a little worn, but I’ll be back in Hawaii in a month!  I’m pretty sure I bought it at Walmart in Hawaii. Yes, I’m the weirdo that goes to Walmart on her honeymoon in Hawaii.


I recently saw this on someone’s car at the Magic Kingdom. I googled it and found it on WWE shop.com.

Like I said, I always swore and I would never have a stick figure on my car… But this might be an exception.  I wish the mom was getting the RKO!

Rtic cups rule!

My husband loves finding deals on Amazon. I feel like we could probably retire right now if Amazon didn’t exist.

However, I occasion he does buy something that’s super useful.  Like this cool silver cup.

I think the namebrand version is Yeti.  I believe Walmart has a version as well.  The brand that he bought for me from Amazon is Rtic   (A play on the word “arctic”).

I made a smoothie last night at 7 PM. It was just fruit with a bunch of ice cubes.

This morning at 9 AM the little tiny chunks of shaved ice we’re still chunks of shaved ice.

And now it’s almost 4 PM, and the ice is still chunky.

Now let me preface these findings with the fact that this cup and smoothie has been in the fridge the entire time. However normal ice in the fridge doesn’t last almost 20 hours.

I think the cup was about 15 bucks. Totally worth it.

Tarzan is hot!

Before Hurricane Matthew comes tomorrow, Bubba and I went to Animal Kingdom for a few hours today.

I figured it would be really un-crowded. And I was right!

As we turned left from the tree of life right where Camp Minnie Mickey used to be, Tarzan was just hanging out all by himself.  He’s never around!  I think the only time I ever saw him out was at a Mickey’s Not So Scary party about 8 years ago.

I was excited to see him… Bubba, not so much.

Ha ha ha, she so scared of him. It’s hilarious.

This little Tarzan loincloth makes me laugh a little bit, because you know how they just gave Jasmine a whole new costume?  No more bellydancing pans and a little bra top, she’s all covered up now.  Yet Tarzan is pretty much naked.

Yee-haw!

DIY color toy

I can’t take any credit for this DIY project. This was all my crafty mom.

But it seems easy enough:


It’s just a bunch of eggs in a carton!  And, for some reason, 2 random orange golf balls.


I’m guessing she bought these wooden eggs at a craft store, like Michael’s or Joann.

Then, she just painted the eggs, and the inside of the paper egg carton.

Once in a while, I’ll take the eggs out of the carton and just leave them in a pile right by the empty egg carton.  Bubba always puts them away perfectly!

Those wooden eggs are pretty heavy though.  Now that Bubba can throw things more than 2 inches in front of her, I have to keep them away from the TV and other breakable things. She doesn’t throw things very often, but you know kids, they be crazy.
