Wordful Wednesday - Dress Up

Over the last few weeks this is what Lily has been doing with all of her hair accessories.  She has been making her stuffed animals look fabulous.
When I asked to take photos of her masterpiece she was super happy.
This unicorn she won at the fair and the wings she bought herself at the fair.
Can't leave out "sherbet guide" and "U-nie" (her mini unicorn pillow pet).  Yes, she named them all by herself.  :)

Neverland Pirates

They're jolly buccaneers. 
Lily loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  The mermaid & princess episodes are her favorite.

When we went to Disney they were having their flower and garden show going on at Epcot.  When we walked through the butterfly exhibit they were giving the kids a packet of butterfly flowers.  We finally got around to planting them when we came home.  The zinnias are blooming now.  They are soooo pretty.  It's such a nice reminder of out family vacation.

Have you ever spilled anything on your keyboard?  Yeah, I know we all should be more careful.  No drinks near electronics.  I know, I know...but crap happens.

Well, about a month ago I spilled my full glass on Diet Coke on the side of my laptop.  Yes, it got on my keys and at first I thought everything was fine.  My laptop worked ok or so I thought.  Later that night I had 'sticky keys'.  My control key was stuck.  Soooooo frustrating.  I popped off the keys and cleaned them with alcohol and the next morning it seemed all was well.  I seriously thought I was going to have to purchase a new laptop.

Fast forward a few weeks.  We went on vacation and I took my laptop with me.  While downloading my photos one afternoon while on vacation my laptop started acting strange.  I tried typing and it certain keys would not work.  Sigh.  Once I got home, I quickly realized that the control key was stuck again.  Cleaning it was not working.  Half the time the keyboard worked properly and the other half the control key was stuck.  You know how frustrating it is typing when all of a sudden new windows pop open along with other things?  I really thought my laptop was a goner. 

Then I searched keyboard and my laptop info on you-tube and it turns out replacing the keyboard on a Dell Inspiron 1545 is EASY!!  I ordered my keyboard off of ebay for $14.00 shipped and once it arrived it took me less than 10min to replace.  I was very proud of myself.  YAY!

And YES, I have learned my lesson.  I am now drinking out of this....
Perfect use for my Disney Cup.  :)

Wordful Wednesday- Destination

Last week I wrote about how my husband & I went on a getaway.

We flew out at 6am and arrived in Orlando, FL 2.5hrs later.  Not sure if I have ever said this before, but I HATE getting to our destination quickly, but hate take-offs and landings.  I have gotten better, but I am still not fond of it.  
Once we arrived we hit the ground running...we checked in to our hotel went straight to the park.
Yep, we went back to Disney, just the 2 of us.  Our Anniversary was on the 11th of July and we had decided to celebrate by going to Disney.  At first I felt a bit guilty going without my kids, but that feeling wore off quickly.  We had a great time just hanging out trying new things.  Our goal this trip was to eat at different restaurants and go on some rides we had never gone on before and we did just that.  We also decided to go hotel hopping and see what they were like.  You know, things children do not like doing.    We had a blast.

WOW, it's been a while since I posted.  That's because I was working hard so I could go off and have some fun. 

If you follow me on Facebook, you are already aware that I did not have internet access all of last week.  What most people (except a small few) knew was my husband & I took a mini vacation with out the kids.  It was nice to get away by ourselves for a while.

We saw some birds on our getaway...

Any guesses on where we went?  :)
