16 days to go…we’re starting to pack and I’m looking for a backpack. I’m trying to find something suitable to wear all week at WDW.

Here’s what we need to carry:

  • sunglass cases
  • Headache/pain meds/first aid
  • water bottle
  • a hoodie or 2
  • Possibly an extra pair of sneakers
  • My camera

I’ve been on the Oakley site for what seems like weeks, but it’s only been like 2 days.



On the top of my “wants” list right now is this bad boy. (Remember, you can chip in and I’ll cook for you if you come visit!)


So. I got an iPad Pro 9.7. I preordered it. Rose gold. And a pencil.

I love them!!! Absolutely. I use them for work, I use them almost more than I use my MacBook Pro. Imagine to my surprise a few weeks ago when I got to work and opened it up and there was a crack in my screen. A small crack. But a crack none the less.

I was very upset. We went to the Apple Store and Jeremy talked to them, and they decided NOT to use my AppleCare for such a small crack in my screen. But they would just replace it for free!!!!! How cool.

I had been looking for a case, and felt like I should just buckle down and get one to protect my new iPad. And here is what I found: iPad Pro 9.7 Case – MoKo Ultra Slim Lightweight Smart-shell Stand Cover with Translucent Frosted Back Protector for Apple iPad Pro 9.7″

The iPad locks when the cover closes. It wraps around to a standing position.

I got the rose gold and it matches very nicely. It’s is protective and feels nice to the touch. So far I haven’t had any issues with the case getting dirty. It has stayed pretty clean.


Here is a question I get often from Jess:

How are you so warm?!?!

I honestly couldn’t tell you.


Last week I got the garden tilled and put on my weed killer. I’ve got to go through and gather up the little patches of grass that rooted before I could get it out. We’re going to make a trip out to the greenhouse to get some ready to go plants. I have spent the last couple months trying to start my own and they just don’t seem to take very well. It is quite saddening. 

In other, yet related, news, I added another blueberry bush to the group of berries and another kiwi. I am hoping this kiwi will get the other one to produce fruit. However, even if it doesn’t, they are lovely plants. Very green and leafy. This makes 2 raspberries, 3 blackberries, 2 blueberries, 2 cherries, 2 kiwis, and about 15 strawberries. I am really hoping to get some amazing berries this year!
