Guess who’s Back, Back Again (an Update)

Hi friends, long time no see! I’m sure you’ve been wondering where I’ve gone. I took a bit of a break. I was feeling uninspired to write, and rather than force topics I decided to step back, give myself a breather, and come back when I was ready. And boy am I ready! I have tons of updates on our Disney trip, my spring and summer wardrobe, fitness journey, and some life decisions that my husband and I have decided on that I will write about in a separate post.

For now, I figured I would just give a general update on what I have been up to these past 3 weeks! Before I get into that I’ll give you a quick update on my fitness journey since I was supposed to update at week 4. Spoiler alert, I only worked out about 2 more times since then. Its bad, guys. Not only did I loose motivation to blog, I also lost motivation to work out. I’m determined to complete my 4 weeks of BBG though, so I am starting fresh this week, and will (hopefully) have a real workout update for you by the end of May!

April 7-13th

Some exciting Disney bookings happened this week to offset a not so great week at work. Many changes are happening that I won’t get into on here, but it definitely has me re-evaluating what I want to do and what my purpose in life is. I’m holding off on making any major job changes right now, but a change may be coming.

Hint, hint

April 14-20th

School vacation happened (again!) I know, it feels like I JUST wrote about school vacation, but it happened again in April. Since it was a bit warmer this time around and I was solo, I tried to get us out of the house as much as possible. I worked for two of the 5 days they were out and then it was Legoland, Plaster Funtime, and a meeting with the Easter Bunny!

Nailed it!

We also went to Target more times then I can count (not unusual) and then celebrated Easter with family and friends.

April 21-27th

That leads us to right about here where it’s been mostly just life happenings of taking the kids to their activities, parties, working, keeping up with piles of laundry. The normal adult things. I also pondered and am still pondering another Disney booking of flights for our trip. Mr Colored in pretty and I have gone back and forth on whether to try driving to save $1,000’s of dollars or just book the flights. I’d like to believe I can do a 20 hour or so road trip with two kids and my husband, but I also know me, and know that I’m an instant gratification kind of gal. Whatever is going to get me there the fastest is generally what I would lean toward. I am also aware that we are going right around Christmas so saving money would be ideal, but we also don’t plan to go crazy with presents for the kids. I’m still thinking about it, but know my time is limited if we do decide to book flights!

Oh and the biggest thing this week was WE SAW ENDGAME!!! I cried, I won’t spoil it since this is opening weekend and people may not have seen it, but I cried. Maybe I’ll do a movie review once enough time has passed.

I won’t show you the after 🙈 #hotmessexpress

So there ya have it. My life over the last 3 weeks. Nothing crazy which I’m thankful for, just a longing to keep it real with myself and know when I shouldn’t force myself to do something my heart isn’t into.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be taking the rest of the day to prepare for Game of Thrones. If you know, you know.

A representation of me, probably after Game of Thrones.

Bye for now!

Hi! My name is Nicole and I am a 30-something born and raised Boston girl who is in love with all things Disney. I am the wife of a less enthusiastic Disney fan who supports my addiction, and the mother of two mildly obsessed Disney toddlers. When I'm not watching Toy Story, Beauty and The Beast, or Aladdin for the thousandth time, I enjoy shopping, recreational ballet and planning anything from birthday parties to trips to Disney. I hope you enjoy my tidbits on how I adult while letting the magic of Disney peak through!
