BACK IT UP!

Well if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been away from my blog for a few weeks. I mentioned I was going to Disney – but I never intended to be gone as long as I was! It just so happens that my computer stopped working – some error saying Windows wouldn’t load. Come to find out the hard drive went bad and we lost all of our photos, files, and everything else we had ever saved to our computer.

Please friends… BACK UP YOUR FILES! I might as well have thrown all of my pictures away because now they are GONE! Thank goodness I have a lot of them posted on my blog or Facebook, but I still lost a lot of files.

In all of this I have placed an external hard drive at the top of my list of ‘things to buy!’ Remember to back up your files OFTEN to an external hard drive, discs, flash drives, or an online storage site.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am happy to be back and I have a lot of things to share! I actually think the break was much needed because I was having a creative block around the time my computer had the hard drive death. I’m filled with ideas now and getting ready to start planning Mason’s 2nd Birthday Party – Pirate Style!

Here are some of our pictures from Disney-

There is plenty more where these came from .. I'll be sharing more on our Disney trip next week.

Enjoy,

A Moms Clothing Dilemma

We are going to be going to Disney in a week and I have no clothes to wear! After freeing my closet of clothes I haven’t worn in months, clothes that don’t fit, and clothes I have owned since High School. (Scream!) I have little to nothing left. I’m hoping the selection just seems so small because I have quite a bit of dirty laundry….

As if that is not a big enough dilemma - here in Florida we are already seeing temperatures in the 90s which means short wearing weather is upon us. I really don’t want to fill my closet with a bunch of plain t-shirts and shorts. Oh the decisions.

My biggest fear is that I haven’t really thought about style, fashion, or clothes in the past three years! After having the boys I couldn’t find the time to enter a mall – nor did I want to see the size I would be wearing! After loosing almost 10 pounds over the past few months – I’m ready!! But do I really have to buy from the ‘women’s’ department? That slightly freaks me out. I’m only 23 – I don’t want to shop in women’s – my grandma and mom shop there!

After browsing the web here are some of my inspirations -
