Disney Cruise!

Life seems like a crazy jumble this morning. Today, I turn 30 years old. Today, uncertainty is running through the Gulf Coast regarding Tropical Storm Isaac. Today, I have several friends (including myself) who are trying to figure out what to do regarding upcoming vacations. I don’t like uncertainty. Ugh.

So instead, I’m going to keep my mind off of it and I’m going to think of a wonderful thought….any merry little thought? Yeah…I’ve been listening to Disney music! Hah!

My happy thought for the day? Our upcoming Disney Cruise!! I feel as if I’ve been counting down to this cruise for EVER! We are travelling with my husband’s parents to New York where we’ll board the Disney Magic for Canada!


I have a countdown on my phone that I look at every day! I’ve never been to New York so I’m excited and scared all at the same time! I cannot wait!! :0)


I love this ship and can’t wait to be on board!

Anyone ever heard of Fish Extenders? Well, I spent hours a few weeks ago creating my Fish Extender gifts for our cruise!


I don’t think I realized the HUGE undertaking I was putting myself through! The Cajun Cookin’ paper bag cookbooks were very time consuming but I had a lot of fun with them! :0)


I decided that since we are going to Canada and I’m Cajun which are descendant of the Acadians (got that?) I’d bring everyone a little piece of home!


Mini serving size of Tony Chachere and Tabasco sauce!


Each room’s bag includes: a Mardi Gras Fleur de Lis necklace, a Fleur de Lis cookie cutter, a Cajun Cookin cookbook made out of brown paper bags, mini travel size Tobassco/Tony’s seasoning, and something I found at Target that is not remotely Cajun – Duncan Hines icing flavor powder!  :0)


Ready to go!

I also shopped and shopped and shopped for MONTHS for my cruise semi-formal night dress. I couldn’t find ANYTHING I liked and I tried on what felt like a million dresses! I finally decided on this one! Yay!


…..and just because I thought this was funny!! Have you seen the McKayla is not impressed Tumblr account? Go check it out if not! Hah!


Winners of the Sweat Pink Shoelaces are Christine from We Run Disney and Lisa from Run Fast Mama! Incidentally, both are Run Disney fans! Yay!

Send your mailing address to: and I’ll get the shoelaces out to you this week! :0)
