DISNEY!!!

THEE moment they've been waiting for...stood in line for an hour, had to wake Ash up when we finally got to meet the most important couple in all of Disney!!
Character lunch at Crystal Palace...one of MANY familiar faces

Daddy got picked by Belle herself, to be her BEAST...lol
DISNEY!



Belle and her fans


Ashlee and Haylee lovin' their new ears...


Our first trip ever with the girls. We wanted to wait until both girls were old enough to actually enjoy it and remember it! It cost a fortune for just ONE day at the park, for a family of FOUR, so we wanted to make it count!

We stayed at Francine and Bryan's condo in Kissimmee...fabulous time...gorgeous, HOT weather, but I'm not complaining...although we did pick the hottest day to hit Disney (111 heat index)...definitely can't wait to return!

Lunch Bunch


Today is my mom's actual birthday, so since I had a half day, we took her to lunch on the Waterfront...HOPED to sit outside...no such luck, it's been raining most of the week. No problem, inside is fine...get this rain out of the way now so we can have nice weather for our Dewey vaca....

FACEBOOK FRENZY?! I think NOT....

Ok, I'll be the first to admit I was skeptical about joining FB. I wanted nothing to do with this, nor did I have time to do it...but, a far away friend sent me an invite to join, so I decided to join and give it a whirl, since just about everyone I knew was jumping on the FB train!


At first it was great...a bit addicting. I found old friends, relatives, old classmates, old boyfriends...and it was fun to catch up and see what everyone was up to...share pics, etc.


NOW, I'm about 3/4 of the way to the point of dogging the whole thing...flat out canceling for good! I am finding it to be more of a nuisance than anything else. You have to be careful what you say, what you post, etc...or people just take things way too personally or read into things the wrong way (I can honestly say I've had it happen to me!) Maybe it's letting people in TOO much into your life..?!


Anyway, I stumbled upon this article and it's RIGHT ON...it's titled 15 REASON TO QUIT FACEBOOK. Every point, I laughed and thought, EXACTLY!

So...had to share...http://www.switched.com/2009/04/16/15-reasons-to-quit-facebook/
