My weeks: This week I have been exhausted and my fibro flaring, but it was all for a good reason because last week I was in Disney with my family. I ended up having to take a lot of meds, but had a good time. I got to eat some of my favorite cupcakes in the world, went to Mickey's Christmas Party with awesome parade, show and fireworks. My youngest favorite was Dumbo and meeting Mickey at dinner. My oldest just now is liking roller coasters, so she loved the new Mine train, thunder mountain and goofy coaster. Splash mountain was still a little much for her and she went through space mountain line and then decided not to ride since you are in a seat by yourself.

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. What gorgeous photos. I'm glad you had a lovely time that made your fibro flaring feel worth it. I haven't read the books you've read, but I really want to start The Darkest Minds trilogy.

  2. Aw, looks like you guys had an amazing time at Disney :D So jealous. <3 and so happy for you :) I haven't read any of these books, but they look pretty awesome ;p Hope you will love them all. <3 (those you haven't read yet :)) Happy reading Brandi.

    You've had quite a busy couple of weeks! i hope you'll have an even more fruitful week coming up. :)

  4. Oh wow! Busy busy busy! I am dying to get back to Disney World! We were planning for next year but decided to hold off for another year so we can see the new Frozen ride in 2016! It's going to be such a looooong wait!!

    Seeing your child asleep in the stroller reminds me of me as a kid! I think I did that too during a parade. Might have been the night one!

    Hope you enjoy your reads!
