{Five on Friday // Disney World}

Friday, February 27, 2015

Happy Friday!! Is it just me or has it been a long week? Even with the snow days we've had it just seems to drag! Anyhow, I am glad that it's Friday.

Joining in for Five on Friday. And today it's all about Disney World!!!

Flights are bought and the pups boarding reservation has been made...just making it all that much more real! Mason has been begging us to go on a plane for the longest. He's going to flip!!!!

We are staying at Coronado Springs Resort and so excited about it. All of the pictures online are amazing. And the pools? Oh my, the pools! Going to be the best place to relax after long days at the park. It also has a 24 hour fitness area. Nate and I are going to need that. I have a feeling it's not going to be so easy to eat healthy. And besides, we'll be at Disney!!!!!!! But, who knows...the 12+ miles they say you walk in a day may be all the exercise we need.

We got the 5-day tickets with a dining plan! Our magic bands have also been ordered!! And guess what? I didn't go with pink. Surprise, right? I ordered a red one. When I think about Disney World I just see red! So I went with a red band.

Keeping this a secret from Mason has been the hardest. We have slipped a couple of times and had to cover it up. We were successful, but I am not sure how we'll go another 86 days without spilling the beans! We do not plan on telling him until Friday May 22nd after his Pre-K graduation!! Then we'll only have to hear the "are we leaving yet" question on Saturday and then we're off! 

How has your week been? Any weekend plans?

Linking up with Emily for A Grateful Heart

With the weather this past week I can't help but be grateful for working at home. We've had rain, sleet, and snow the last 3 days and they say there is more to come. Before I worked at home I would worry myself sick the days leading up to a predicted snow storm. Even though it was imminent a storm was brewing and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it I would worry. And I mean to the point where I got migraines and would be nauseous.

I do not drive in these conditions...not at all. Texas isn't ever prepared for our once a year ice storms and neither are the crazies out on the roads. It's just not worth it to attempt to drive anywhere. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't feel guilty about missing work. And I would hardly be able to enjoy an ice snow day with my boys because I would be thinking about missing work. Yeah, no fun at all.

So, I am very, very grateful that I work at home. Yes, that means I still have to work with the rest of Texas shuts down. But, it also means no more stress and worry and I can actually enjoy my day and my boys being home with me. 

What are you grateful for this week?

{Texas Tuesday // The Magnolia // Waco Texas}

Happy Texas Tuesday friends!! 

What is Texas Tuesday? A chance for you to show off the awesomeness that is TEXAS!! You can blog about anything; restaurants, vacation spots, venues, concerts, your hometown, shops, fashion, sports, etc. The linkup is not limited to Texans, we just ask that the post is about Texas.

Hall Around Texas

I haven't talked about our Valentine's Day on the blog yet...because I wanted to save it for Texas Tuesday. Saturday morning we woke up and Nate said, "Let's go to Waco after our gym classes today" and by go-to-Waco I knew that he meant THE MAGNOLIA!!! Fixer Upper is our absolute favorite show and we just adore Chip and JoAnna Gaines! 

Nate went to his 8:30 Body Shred class and I went to my 10:30 Zumba class and then rushed home to get ready!

Waco is only about an hour and 10 minutes from our house. Not a bad drive at all. We went straight to The Magnolia Market and found that almost everyone in Texas had the same idea as us! There were people everywhere! It was so hard to look around at anything because you were shoulder to shoulder with people, but it was just cool to be there. I could have bought one of everything in there. The decor and everything was definitely what you see on the show {Fixer Upper}. I just love JoAnna's style and wish I could hire her to Fixer Upper us a house! ha.

After visiting Magnolia Market we tried to find Magnolia Farms..but had no luck! And we were all starving so we sought out for food. We tried going to George's {a Waco staple}, but both parking lots were completely full. We circled through twice, but figured if the parking lots were that bad that they had to be packed to the gills inside. So we trucked along and ended up at Buffalo Wild Wings. It was okay. 

After lunch we went to Cabelas and did a little shopping.

It was the best day!  

Have you ever been to Waco? George's Bar/Grill? The Magnolia Market? Do you watch Fixer Upper?
