~*Disney World*~

Cody and I had a great time at Disney. I took almost 1000 pictures.
I wanted to share some of my favorite photos. The Animal Kingdom : The tree on Oasis Island.  Pictures can not justify how awesome this tree is to see in person. IMG_7310 IMG_7374 IMG_7272IMG_7311 IMG_7385 Hollywood Studios :
This park was beautiful. The style of the buildings and colors. It had a very "Art Deco" feel.
I really enjoyed this park. There was a lot of fun things to do here. The Hollywood Tower Hotel was my favorite ride.IMG_7413 IMG_7433 IMG_7477 IMG_7488IMG_7505IMG_7487IMG_7416IMG_7418>br? Epcot :
This park was my least favorite. It's great if you love food and want to eat different things from different countries.
I rode Mission Space which gave me Motion Sickness. I usually can ride anything. Not that ride.
The park was pretty and I got some nice photos.
IMG_7577 IMG_7574 IMG_7621 IMG_7620IMG_7568IMG_7682 Magic Kingdom:
True Disney. I felt like I was instantly filled with happiness when I entered this park. Even though I enjoyed the rides at Hollywood Studios better, I loved the magic and happiness of Magic Kingdom. Plus I got my picture taken with the White Rabbit!!! That made my day.

Our hotel we stayed at was also amazing. I hadn't slept that good in months. We were very sad to come home back to our stressful lives. It was a well worth the money. We can't wait to go back. I could post more and more pictures and go on and on, but I will spare everyone. lol ;)



Cody & I decided to bite the bullet and get the VISA card out. We really wanted to go on vacation together before he went to boot camp. I haven't been to Disney World since I was 4 years old. I have only faded memories of "It's A Small World After All" and "Pirates of The Caribbean"!

It will be nice to have a break from work and the stress of showing our house every other day. We will be gone for 7 days, so my blog will be neglected all next week. We are driving down, so not all that time will be spent at the park. Sadly all the cheaper places to stay at the park were taken. We had to spend more then we wanted too on the vacation. We will be staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Be back next week! :)

4 Movies

4 movies {#3}

1. Population 436 - Every once in awhile I enjoy a scary movie. This movie was about a small town that always had the same population of "436". A census employee went to check out the town and figure out the mystery. It was a lame movie. I hated the ending and wish I hadn't wasted 2 hours of my life watching it. lol  2 Stars

2. The International - I love Clive Owen. :) This was a very high-paced edge of your seat movie.  4 Stars

3. Beverly Hills Chihuahua - Stupid. I only watched it because I have a chihuahua.  It had some humor in it.  I think that was what kept me watching the whole thing.  2 Stars

4. Neverwas - A movie based on a fairy tale . It was okay. The story was different and held my interest.  3 Stars


Inspiration: IKEA Lack Shelves & Photo Frame Collages

I love floating LACK shelves from IKEA. I also love the look of picture frame collages on a wall when it is done right. Here is some images I love...

Design Board - Paris Theme

When I started this design board for Danielle I found all kinds of black, white and pink bedding sets I loved. I found myself NOT wanting to do pink for this design though. I stuck with mainly black & white decor and selected the yellow wall color as the backdrop for the room. I think the wall color gives the room a sophisticated look. Where pink would give it a more childish feel.

Hopefully Danielle is inspired by my design! If she didn't want to do yellow, she could easily do about any wall color she wanted if she stuck with black and white accessories.

Happy Decorating!

Twilight Inspired Bathroom

Today I was searching the web for inspiration and stumbled across this cute bathroom by The Mosaic Queen. I have been kinda stressed this week and not feeling very creative. This bathroom cheered me up a bit...


I love how she used the UNG DRILL frames from IKEA to dress up her plain bathroom mirror! What a cute idea! {I might have to steal that one! Spray paint it HOT PINK!!} Please visit her blog to view more photos and read more about her bathroom. {HERE}
