Wednesday - its that time... time to Hodgepodge!!

1. The USA will mark Columbus Day on Monday, October 14th this year...what's something you need or want to explore (literally or metaphorically speaking)?

I need AND want to explore Disney World & all the new things that's been there since I've been there last in 2000...

13 years since I've been there.

I was a young, energetic young lady last time I was there.
Now I'd probably be the one who needs to sit down a lot & complain about how big the park is.

Nahhh... tell me Belle is around the corner & I'm knocking people out of my way & getting a PR for the fastest mile ever!

If I ever make it to the Be Our Guest Restaurant, I'll push all the tables out of the way & do a ball room dance right there in this room...
I'd probably never leave unless I got kicked out anyways...

2. The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, or Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty...who do you most love to hate?

My mother would ground me if I didn't say The Wicked Witch of the West...

but when I was little, that green faced woman scared the bee-geez out of me...
& then seeing "Wicked", it made me love her...

So its a love/hate relationship anyways

If you've never seen Wicked... find it... see it...


3. Is open-mindedness a virtue?

I refuse to answer this question because I don't like it...
(see what I did there?) ;)

4. How often do you weigh yourself?

Any time I want to be depressed

Isn't this the normal reaction when you get on a scale?
It is for me...

5. Costa Rica was recently named the happiest country in the world on The Happy Planet Index.  What's the happiest country in the world to you, and what makes it so?

The only country I've been in is the good ole USA...  I know happy people here.  So I guess we're doing OK.

I'd say England though... because they have William & Kate & Prince Harry...

AND they have Harry Potter!

6. Besides The Bible, what is one book you think should be mandatory reading for every high school student?

Heck, I don't remember what books were mandatory reading for me when I was in high school...

I say let them pick anything that they enjoy... let them enjoy reading however it works for them

its still reading...

7. I went shopping at some nearby outlets last week, and while I was there, I picked up a couple of Christmas gifts. How about you? Have you started your holiday shopping yet?

I actually have picked up a few Christmas gifts already.  I even had to start writing my Christmas list because I've picked up that many gifts... I'm super proud of myself.

But I know I'll still be out in a panic on Christmas Eve as stores are closing to pick something up... its tradition...

So by Christmas time, I should be FIT & in shape! :)

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I can't believe it... today, the little twin girls I held a few minutes after they were born... they are 9 years old today... I can't believe it... Double Digits next year...

ZOOMMMMMMM... that's time flying by

Happy Birthday to my nieces Sophia & Madi

Look at them... 9 years ago...


  1. Happy Birthday to the twins! This is weird...WE WERE AT DISNEY IN 2000!!! What if we were there at the SAME TIME??? (ha, ha!)

  2. I was at Disney in 2000 too. But I've been back since then. We didn't eat at that restaurant but we did have breakfast with the princesses and my daughter (16 at the time) had her picture with Belle and even has it with her at college. You just can't get enough Belle I guess.

  3. Ugh - I've been getting panicky feelings about Christmas, especially because I was going to make some gifts. Guess I should figure that out in a hurry shouldn't I?

  4. Happy birthday to the twins. Today is my sister's birthday and we have stopped counting unless it is backwards.

  5. We are headed to Disney in about 10 days -- can't wait!
    I would hope everyone would read "The Secret Garden".
    Happy WW!

  6. I was able to explore Disney World last year for two days and in December I get to go again, my husband has a conference to attend!
    I saw Wicked for my 60th Birthday present. This year I saw The Wizard of Oz on stage. I was in London two years ago and I can't wait to get back. Would love to spend a year living there. Happy Birthday to the twins, they are adorable!

  7. Your nieces are adorable! My niece will be 10 at the end of November! She's already acting like she's 13, i wonder how thats gonna go. ;) Anyway I love the clips you shared.

  8. oh i too want to go to Disneyworld some day, i have been to Disneyland a billion times.

  9. A BIG Happy Birthday to your nieces! Time definitely does fly! I joke with my girls all the time that I'm half-way to DEAD! ;)
