Disney Fantasy Cruise-- Day 1 and 2

I'm back.... with about 2500 more pictures on my phone than before from our amazing summer family vacay cruising with Disney!! I'll spare you about 1500 pictures but here are 'just a few' shots from our first two days.

I always get nervous with travel from Canada to the US with travel delays so we came in on the Friday night, spent the night in a hotel close to the airport and headed down to Port Canaveral the next day.

We aren't at all excited.

We headed in... met my parents who were joining us on the cruise and had a wonderful lunch before exploring the ship a bit.

First up... lunch and ice cream... #priorities

Then we were off to the Oceaneer's Club and Lab where we explored the week's activities on the ship.

Disney is like me... all about the details.

Happy #11 my love.

Still at the lab. These kids did not want to leave.

The sail away party with Mickey and the gang was soooo much fun!

We went to the show (Disney has the most magical, broadway-esque shows) and to take a picture with  Belle when I made the discovery that they had put us in the first seating for dinner-and it was past dinner time (my travel agent told us we had the second seating). We were so bummed at missing an awesome dinner on our first night and had to grab sandwiches at the pool. #firstworldproblems #butreallythough

Little Miss enjoyed sitting at the pool and watching a movie and dripping her second ice cream cone of the day on me...

Bright and early the next morning!

Breakfast selfie with the brightest morning person ever #mamaneedscaffeine

A quick convo about life.

We took long walks along the ship every morning.

And did lots of pool time

There were mysteries to solve all around the ship for the kids with their tickets and mystery books. 
Sidenote, that's not coffee in his mug.

We got all dressed up for our first night of dinner. Disney dinners are awesome.

We also took C to a dance party with Goofy before turning in for the night.... two days done- five more to go!!!

Show and Tell Tuesday- Guilty Pleasures

 Okay so for Show & Tell Tuesday with Andrea this was an easy one.... as apparent I  have 'just a few' guilty pleasures...

Chocolate... especially if it's in the brownie format-- a dense rich chocolate cake might be my very favourite thing of all time.

Yeah... I've cut back-- but I adore a good sale. Online shopping has not been good to my bank account. 

I don't drink during the week unless it's a special occasion but come weekends, I usually have a glass of wine or three. 

These days there are some later nights here as I'm getting my summer reading on... not to be confused with constructive reading by any means whatsoever.  And I adore reading other blogs!

And then when I read, I sleep in just a bit. I will be very sad when I have to wake up earlier come September. 

I have a love/hate relationship with The Bachelor. I mean I love it but I hate myself for loving it!

Yeah and my phone! 

In other news, I'm not huge on tobacco or caffeine #small blessings right?

What are your guilty pleasures?

Weekending in August

Good morning, lovelies! This week will be a busy one, preparing for our family coming and getting ready for our little vacay but we did not let it stop us from have a fun-filled busy, weekend.

- Hosted our neighbourhood happy hour on Friday. Every couple weeks someone takes a turn hosting happy hour in the summer. The guests bring their drink and an appetizer. It's a great way to end the busy week but it's definitely more than one hour-- some guests left here close to 11!

- made zucchini bread (a and me) and went for a bike ride (D & C)

- visited my high school friend, Sonya and her family for sushi, a walk through the Harbourfront, a quick view of the West African festival, the most beautiful sushi, gelato and great conversation. 

- slept in on Sunday--- actually we slept in on Saturday too.

- the girls had swimming lessons

- went to Cavalia-- a horse and acrobatic show touted 'Best Show Ever'. There's a reason for that. I cannot say enough good things about the show!

- dined at a restaurant where they took 45 minutes to bring our meal and then they didn't even bring my main. A said that the waiter said sorry and made a mistake though so I should forgive him. #doingsomethingright

- went for ice cream since I just had a soggy Ceasar salad for my main. 

And just like that, it's Monday again!!

 This kid dominates sashimi

She took a very short, very expensive little nap.
