Obsession Updates

So, Jillian's season of the Bachelorette end"ED" with just that, Ed. I figured as much since they seemed to be "crazy about each other". Kiptyn was my pick, I always pick the runners up. I figure I will be watching him fall in love with Mrs. Wrong, next season! Who knows? We might get another Trista and Ryan!

The new reality show out there is "dating in the dark". Now this is a great experiment but very weird in the same way. If you havent seen this show, I suggest watching it, atleast once. Each week is the same deal, so need to watch over and over. But the basic concept of the show is do looks really matter? The show puts 3 females and 3 males in a very dark room where they can only hear each other and they are to make a connection based on conversation alone. The past 2 weeks have been 2 out of 3 have stayed together. During week 1, the couple that didn't stick it out was based on looks. Last night, the couple that didn't stick it out was based on faith. So 2 out of 3 isn't so bad. I would love to know if they are still together though.

Tonight is The Bachelorette, After the Final Rose! I am excited to hear what is going on now. THEN it is on to Tori & Deans Home Sweet Hollywood's 2 part season finale. Stella's birthday party, will Candi show up?!? (I know she doesn't due to her pitiful letter to her daughter, she wrote on the web...)and all the other drama in their life.

In my "Real WORLD" life is pretty simple. Work is going great. Todd is preparing for his big "grill", the girls are amazing and the bumps arent too bad. =)

Living the Good Life!

So as you dedicated followers know, I have been praying and praying since April for a new way of life.

As much as I loved my job at the zoo, the main stress I was having was from work. SO I have official left my post as the Special Events Coordinator and moved to working for my church as the Children's Ministry Assistant. I have been here for about a week and a half and I absolutly love it. It is relaxing, faith-driven and just what I needed.

I haven't had a whole weekend off yet (I had Ice Cream Safari last weekend as my last zoo event) but boy am I looking forward to that! I miss my friends at the zoo! I miss having fried brownies at my disposal and I certainly miss my animals but I asked God for help and he has put me here, what more could I ask for??

Coming up on the schedule (which has slimmed down alot!) is Flick's on the Bricks Friday night, Market Saturday, Wedding Saturday Night, Church Sunday!

We are also getting ready for a garage sale next weekend!! SO MUCH FUN! Can't Wait!

I will be posting pictures soon of my last day at the zoo! I had a great experience I can't wait to share!

Disney is over :(

It was fabulous though!

I am going to try to give you the best recap without going over my space!

We left on the 4th of July at 10:30p.m. Todd drove until Tallahasse and then I drove from there to the hotel! We arrived at 11:37 a.m. and check-in! To our surprise they had our room ready!! So we got to go and "rest". Madyson was so excited about the pool so we took a dip and it was great! Aubrie kate is a true fish and Madyson was okay, as long as Todd was holding her. We got out of the pool and got ready for our first night in Disney. We knew that Epcot wasn't going to be the kids favorite place, so we researched a head of time and planned the evening out. It started at the Epcot Character Spot where we met the "fab 5". From there we went to "Norway" for dinner with the princesses. After that we headed over to "test track" so Todd could ride! Then we went to The Seas With Nemo and Friends, did that ride, and then did Turtle Talk with Crush. After that we walked "around the world" and watched Illuminations firework show! It was a great start!

On Monday we celebrated mine & Madyson's bday at Chef Mickey's! We again met the "fab 5" then headed over to Magic Kingdom! There we met TONS of characters, Madyson's favorite was Mary Poppins! We rode Dumbo, teacups and other normal kid rides! We took a break in the middle of the day for a nap and another swim at the pool! We returned that night and met Tinkerbell and her fairy friends. It was fabulous! We rode some more rides and watched the spectromagic parade!

On Tuesday we went to Animal Kingdom! We met alot of fun characters here, saw the Lion King Stage show, rode Kilamajaro Safaris, got rained on!, caught the parade and had dinner at Rainforest Cafe! It was great!

On Wednesday we went back to the Magic Kingdom. We rode the rides we didn't get to ride during our last trip, watched the parade, got rained on again, then went back to the hotel and slept through our reservation at 1900 park fare=( we decided to end the night back at magic kingdom to see the fireworks and ride the rest of the rides we hadn't gotten to ride yet! It was so much fun!

On Thursday, we went to Hollywood Studios!~ we went to Playhouse Disney, saw the voyage of the little mermaid, the beauty and the beast show, had lunch, caught High School Musical 3 performance, met characters, rode some rides, ate dinner at the pizza planet, then got in line and waited 2 hours for Fantasmic! It was worth the wait!

On FRIDAY..we went BACK to the Magic Kingdom. We were only there for 2 hours. We had to meet Alice in Wonderland! We went back to the hotel and swam and slept and relaxed. Then we went back to the park at 9pm and rode all of our favorites again!

On Saturday we woke up and played miniture golf, then Madyson and I went to Grand Floridan and to the Disney Wedding Pavillion!

We got back to the hotel, packed up and left! We drove through the night again and got home on Sunday Morning! We spent sunday sleeping!!

enjoy some of my favorite pics
