Well, hey there!

So I’ve decided to start a blog.  Because I NEED to add something to my to do list.  And please don’t tell my husband because he might murder me if he realizes that I’ve added another project to my already way overloaded plate.  But I think I need this.  To contain all of my crazy ideas and give me an outlet to share the fun things I find and do. 

I’m a stay at home mom who never stays home, with two bright and energetic girls.  One is a sweet and sensitive lady and the other is pure diva.  Their antics and activities have us going all day long.  I tend to overload myself with stuff to do.  I’m a die-hard DIYer.  I never can understand paying for something that I can do myself.  This often leads to lots of half finished projects and an occasional really cool completed one. 

So.  About me and what you will find on this scatterbrained blog:

I love all things Disney and I plan everything, including Disney trips, with military precision.  So expect lots of information on planning Disney trips. 

I love photography but don’t spend nearly enough time taking pictures, so I hope to do more here. 

I love crafting, although it is sort of a deep dark secret.  I’m a closeted crafter.  I don’t scrap.  But I want to have scrapbooks.  I do make fun decorative door wreaths which is my current fave.  I’ve even sold a few to friends.

I wish I could successfully homeschool my children, but I don’t have the patience for it.  And I really fear that I would do my kids an injustice becuase I am ill equipped to teach.  And I do like them getting the social interaction and real-world learning by going out into the world each day.  But this summer I plan on “home summer camp.”  Is that a thing?  Now it is!

I’m a runner and a yogi.  I looove working out and have tried it all.  Triathlons, marathons, P90X, Insanity, Barre work outs, etc.  Of course, I mostly work out so I can eat.  Because I fancy myself a foodie.

I’m from Louisiana and now live in Texas.  I’m VERY southern. So I’m full of “y’alls” and gravy and crawfish.  I love to eat and drink wine.  And secretly wish I could grow grapes in Napa.  Once upon a time I was a lawyer.  I am SO glad I’m not anymore. That’s a whole post of its own.  My husband is a lovely man who more frequently than not bears the brunt of my ire because I’m impatient and demanding.  Which I got from being a lawyer.  I love to be busy, learn, and create.  I want my children to love to be busy, learn, and create.  I want them to be happy and fulfilled.  Just like I am.

There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to contain me and my nutty ideas.

Here we go, y’all!
