My few weeks:
Hey! I am back! I had a great trip to disney with my family. My older daughter is trying all sorts of new stuff, and loves thunder mountain to no end. My youngest was sad that her favorite, the Ariel Under the Sea was closed for refurb but she settled for dumbo and the goofy coaster. I was a little sad that I thought my favorite cupcake in the world was gone from Contempo, but the strawberry one had the same icing and cake, I just had to scoop out the strawberry filling. We focused a little more on pin trading and the sorcerers of magic kingdom than before but still did lots of rides, caught the parade, ate some wonderful food. I am on my cane this week from my fibro, and it has been crazy because we got an ice storm and oldest daughter was home from school all week.

What are you reading? Any of my books new to you or have you read any of my books? If so, what did you think?
Also, feel free to link up your blog and mailbox post.


  1. OOoh nice! We're still planning our Disney trip for next year when the Frozen opens up! I SO hope the Ariel ride is open at that time! I've been DYING to ride that ever since I heard it was real! For ages I just remember watching the simulation on the old DVD and now that I know that the ride is REAL I must must must ride it!!!

    Glad you had a fun time with the family! I am soooo looking forward to when we go!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by then!

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I've not been to Disney. Ever! I've been to Orlando 4 times in my life, but my family or whoever I'm with always does Universal. If I had kids of my own, I'm sure that I'd take them to Disney. Maybe I should get with my sister and brother about taking their kids. I'm about to read Fire & Flood soon and if I really like it I'll get Salt & Storm. Hope you had a great week!

    Here's my STS--->

  4. I really need to go back and finish "Gameboard of the Gods". Happy reading!
