Long time no blog huh? I know, I know. You know honestly I have been wanting to blog for a while but to be quite honest I have just been so scatter brained lately I figured you all would think I was crazy. Well let's see any huge topics to discuss. So many yet none at all, tell me you know that feeling? Ok, well let me just tell you about the highlight of my summer. LOL I hope I don't lose you.
So this summer I got to take my daughter to Disney World. Now for some this is no big deal but for our household this is HUGE. I planned this along with my cousin months in advance.
As time grew nearer to our trip other family and friends were made of aware. Everyone loved sharing in on the secret. All the while my daughter was under the impression we were going to visit our cousins in Texas. I'm a stinker ain't I?! Well I had to tell her something she was 7 and they are inquisitive. However, I accepted the challenge of keeping this secret! I even bought her a new Mickey Mouse suitcase and a coworker got her Minnie Mouse Pj's and tee hee she missed the subtle hints, she never imagined! She had the calendar marked to countdown the day we leave to go to "Texas."

Her first inkling was oh man, am I in trouble? She looked to me for something and I just had a blank stare. I just told her oooo you better go see why they need you. Hope there is nothing wrong with your seat. So she reluctantly goes over and says..."I'm Hailey" they said oh ok what flight are you on. She answered, "Texas" the attendant says ooooo not today Hailey I'm sorry. She had a look of shock on her face coupled with a look to me as if you say mom this lady has lost her mind. She said no looks like you are going to.... *she pulls out her special ticket*
Bam!!! So everyone around is all like "awww" and smiling loving the moment. My daughter, however, was in a state of disbelief. She looked like she wanted to say 'look lady your are crazy we are headed to Texas.' Instead she stood there letting it soak in and she said to me "Mom we are going to Disney?" I said yes she then said "well when?" I said "umm right now!! This is our flight!" She was stunned and still in shock by this time! It was such a special memory for us both. My child was excited but I tell you what, when they say Disney is magical boy they aren't kidding! She was excited, but when were the ferry boat and she got her first glimpse of the Magic Kingdom I thought she was going to burst from excitement.
|OMG she just saw Magic Kingdom in view|
We had a blast and loved every single moment of it. The best part is when they look at you so intentionally and say" OMG WOW this is the best thank you and you are the best mom ever and I appreciate you." Man there aren't to many things that can top that level of love and appreciation in that moment. All the budgeting I did to make this happen was all worth it!! Disney truly is a place of memories! Memories we will cherish always! Well I will catch you later, I have a few other things to tell you about . Blog ya later!
