(The Rest of) The Magic Kingdom

Finally, it was time for my favorite ride, the Haunted Mansion.  Keith and I were able to get away for a bit for this.  About halfway through, in the cemetery, the ride stopped! And stayed stopped for about 10 minutes or so. Not a big deal to me, since it was the first quiet moment I had had in awhile! ;)

We tried to find the rest of the group - turns out they were on It's a Small World...  
Keith and I got in line, and as we got close to getting on, we saw everybody else get off! It was a nice ride too, except for that damn song. ;)

We took a walk over to Adventureland to check out Pirates of the Caribbean.
That was a lot of fun, but the kids weren't too impressed with the dark parts of the ride.
 Colin did see someone who he just HAD to meet:

We headed to Casey's for dinner. The kids were in meltdown stages by this point, so our plan was to head back to the hotel.  However, we could see Cinderella's castle from the window of the restaurant.  The kids loved watching it change colors, so we headed over there when we were done eating.  We arrived just in time to see the show, Dream Along with Mickey.  The kids were enthralled, so we also stayed for the fireworks.

I absolutely loved the show and the fireworks. The kids, especially Colin, still talk about how much they loved the fireworks display. Peter Pan fought Captain Hook during the show, and the kids love to re-enact it at home.  We watch the video of the fireworks from time to time on my phone.  I think this was my favorite part of the entire trip. (That, and seeing Connor's face when he first got to meet Mickey Mouse!)

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 …
