Throw back Thursday, Disney World

Over the weekend MacGyver and I found this great estate sale.  One of those rare ones where you can actually pick through boxes and shit.  It was amazing and I bought a green hall water pitcher.  When I brought the pitcher home and put it in the sink to wash it, I realized there was something inside.

Disney Tickets!

And there were 4 of them.

From 2001

In July of 2001 a Disney ticket sold for 48 dollars plus tax.

Seventeen years later, a Disney World ticket will cost you $116.09!  I wonder if they’ll let me use these tickets today?  Probably not.

Tell me something you bought in 2001 and what you paid for it.

Rockin the mullet way before Billy Ray

Last Monday my mom sent me this picture with a message that said ‘here’s a pic for throwback Thursday.’

throwback thursday

I showed it to MacGyver who immediately said, ‘does she know today is Monday?’ and I said, ‘that’s just how we do things.’

That’s me on the left, sporting the almost mullet before mullet’s were even a thing because I’m cool like that.  I’m not sure what my mom was thinking with my hair, or my sister and brother’s bowl cut’s, but dayum our bangs were on point.  Also, as an fyi, my brother and I are not wearing lip gloss, we just have some seriously moist lips.

My hair is much lighter now due to chemical intervention but it’s still bone straight and fine.  It’s usually pretty easy to style my hair, I just blow dry it and go, except, I live in Florida.  Here’s one word for you, humidity.  I walk out with straight styled hair and end up looking like a chia pet in 60 seconds flat and that’s on a good day.  Every. Damn. Day.


Happy Thursday.

Throwback Thursday, It’s not just four walls, it’s memories

Good Morning and hello from Englewood.


I tried to get this picture just as the sun rose because it’s an absolutely beautiful morning but I was just having my morning coffee and well, priorities.

Anywho, we are still moving.  Yes, still.  I think we only have about one more truck load and then I can begin the process of cleaning the old place and we can relax until tomorrow when we close on the new one.  Then we have to move all of our things from the one room and the garage into the house but I’m pretty sure we’ll be saving all that fun stuff til next weekend.

I’m exhausted.  Oh and also, this is my arm.


It’s a nice arm, and it has served me well.  Hank loves it, especially when I use it to pet him.  However, after moving for the past few days, dropping a sofa, a china hutch and two boxes on it, this is what my arm looks like now.

It’s a mangled mess.

I have to admit, I’m struggling this morning.  Not physically but mentally.  It’s hard to let go of something that brought you so much joy, even if the new place is bigger, has more water behind it and room to grow.  I’m sure we’ll make some wonderful memories in the new place too but I will always be fond of this one.

So long Frances street, hello Dona Drive.


If you know me, you know I can’t wait to decorate.  My pinterest boards are jammin right now.

In honor of throw back Thursday, tell me something you miss and why.
