Today starts the rain and wind from Hurricane Matthew.  It started as a cat 5 Hurricane and is now a cat 3 while hitting the east coast of Florida.  I will include some pictures from below for Florida damage and NC rain.

Falling into October


So excited about the fall.  I know it’s been “fall” since the 22nd, but I’m just now starting to see the leaves changing colors and falling.  The first day of fall in NC, our high was in the 60s and it was cloudy, so it came in right on time.  The beautiful colors are just awesome in this area and I love the mountains in NC as well.  Check out this wonderful picture from our Asheville trip in 2011.  Asheville Mtns


The other thing that is my super favorite thing,…… pumpkin spice ANYTHING!  All in favor say I…well typing I is ok too!

New Name or no new name??

I’ve been toying with making a new name for the blog. Some people say this makes them think of different things than what I’m trying to portray.  What do you think?

Right now I have, others I’ve thought of but are taken are:

and a few more that are variations, but nothing is exciting me. 🙁

December Vacation Destination

It’s been decided and for those of you that know my son, please don’t spill the beans, it’s a SURPRISE!

We are going to FLORIDA!  My husband is from Florida and has been dying to take our son to Disney, Legoland and the other theme parks!  I’m excited about visiting again and especially during a cold month for us in NC.  One of the things I love about my job, is that I always get a week off at Christmas, so that I can prepare presents, and decorate, and then take down decorations also and clean up the Christmas morning aftermath 🙂  So this year, we will be on our way to the sunny FL.

Here are some links of the places I hope to go with the family.  Which ones would you recommend and why?  What park or event was your favorite and why?


SeaWorld Orlando

Magic Kingdom

made the move to…… and

I hope this will be a great change for me and the blog. I’ve wanted to make the switch for a long time, just haven’t been able to do it until now.  I hope to blog more regularly maybe even have guest bloggers one day!  Blogging is a hobby right now, but one day, maybe one day, it’ll be so much more!  Anyone that would like to help me tweak my site, I’d be much appreciative!  Hope you all have a wonderful day!
