Our Trip to Disney World

What are your plans for spring break? In order to avoid the crazy airport security lines and drunk college kids in hotel hallways, we decided to push our trip forward, and last week we went to Orlando. Because I’m obviously a very smart person, I didn’t realize my daughter would miss four days from school, and then after one week back at school—BAM!—miss another five because of spring break.

So yeah, even though I’m way behind on my day job and writing, I thought I’d take a minute to stop by and blog. [*whispers so her boss won’t hear*] Productivity, schproductivity, right?

The good news is that we had a fabulous time. My family lives in Brazil and my husband’s family in Switzerland, so rarely these days do we travel somewhere where we don’t get to see any family members. We made a point to go on this little trip with Scarlett before her baby sister or brother comes along. And yeah, I know it’ll be awhile (five months and three days—not that I’m counting or anything), but I wanted to cash in the second-trimester energy boost I’m supposed to experience.

I’m sharing some pictures with you, including the one with Pluto. We waited a whole hour in line, in the cold, for a picture with him because Scarlett insisted. Okay, so it came time came to take a picture, and of course she wanted nothing to do with Pluto. I think the picture speaks for itself. :)


I hope everyone is having a much more productive day than I am!

Take care,


  1. What a good idea to cash in on your second trimester energy boost. Never thought of that one.

    But I love it when the nesting instinct kicks in towards the end. Got tons of cleaning done then.

    Bless you. Roll on delivery day, at exactly the right time.

    1. Thanks, Maria!
      I must say I feel better now, less tired :D
      We intend to move to a bigger house in a couple of months, so I'll welcome the nesting instinct if it shows up, lol. Hugs!
