Don’t Wanna

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hampton Hotels. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you ever have days where you just don’t want to live in the realities of life?

I do.

Like today. I’m sure some of you have noticed that I was absent much of the weekend – due to a lack of available, working computers in our household – and today, when I should be hitting it hard? Yeah, I’m not. Total dilly-dallying over here. That’s me.

Joey and I have been talking about how much we just want to “get away.” Not that we don’t love our children. Not that we aren’t incredibly blessed. But I just want to sleep. Sleep until I want to get up. Sleep until my eyes open 100% on their own. Sleep until I feel like I couldn’t possibly sleep another wink for at least 12 hours.

Unfortunately, even if you offered to take my kids for an entire weekend, I wouldn’t sleep. I would stay up late enjoying being alone with my hubby. Watching movies, laughing at each other, surfing the Internet, you know. Then I’d get up before I was ready the next morning to make the most of my day. And when I got my children back at the end of the week, I would very likely be just as tired, maybe MORE tired than I was when it began.

This coming weekend is Labor Day and I was hoping to get away – even if my kiddoes came along. Doesn’t look like that’s going to happen either.

But today in my not blogging time on the Internet, I did find this Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes. Hampton Inn and Hotels are giving away an ENTIRE hotel for a weekend. That’s 100 rooms. Can you imagine? What a party! (Although, I don’t foresee that doing anything to help me get over this exhaustion.)


Even if you don’t win that CRAZY first prize, every day one person will win a hotel room for a weekend plus three rooms for friends!

So, if you win, will you take me?Click Here

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
