Epcot, Part Two

Before we head over to the World Showcase, I almost forgot! 
While the grandparents and aunt took the kids to Canada:



 Keith and I were able to try:

It was such a super-cool ride! I had wanted to try it the last time I was here (for work, back in 2006), but I was 6 months pregnant with Connor, so I couldn't. It was amazing, and I'd love to do it again.

After we were finished, we headed over to find the family.

We visited Canada, and then met with some friends:





Probably the closest I will get to France.
I did get some good-smelling lavender lotion though.



We had a yummy lunch at Liberty Inn, the kids particularly enjoyed the band that was playing before and then for a little while during lunch.  (Lunch also was our respite from the torrential downpour that just happened to come shortly after we entered the building.)


We rode the boat across the lake a couple of times...


We visited with Belle
(BEFORE the Beast came out because we knew how well that would go over with our little princess).

We stopped off at Germany for a beer:

No trip to Epcot would be complete with a stop in Mexico to see Donald:

and Mommy getting peed on two times***

After dinner, we found a place to sit and watch IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth:



After the show, we started to head back to the bus.
It was sprinkling a little, and the line for Test Track was short.


Keith ran in to do that, while the rest of us waited (wetly) outside.
 The rain began to pour, so it we hurried to the bus stop.

All in all, our first park visit went great!

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

I saw …

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.



The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
