Meet Me Monday: Obsessed

Good morning! Did the past weekend go by far too fast for you too? We got snow on Saturday which made the whole weekend feel weird. Snow shouldn’t happen in April!

Today’s Meet Me Monday question is, “What is something you’re obsessed with?”

I am interested in a fair number of things but incredibly passionate about very few. The closest I could come to a full-blown obsession is my feelings about Disney World. As long as I can remember, I’ve loved Disney music and movies and since our marriage almost 8 (whaaaaat?!) years ago, Brian and I have vacationed at Disney World in Florida every year. Each vacation has looked different; we’ve had short, long, on-property, off-property, extended family, just the two of us, indulgent, and thrifty trips over the years.

Our trips look so much different now than they did before we had kids but we’re thrilled to introduce our love of Disney to our offspring. Ben is already looking forward to going back in May.

(Low Res, my apologies) Our 2015 Disney vacation family portrait. We get our photo taken in the same place every year and I love that the photos show our family growing from just the two of us, to being pregnant with Ben and Teddy and now the boys as they get bigger.

How about you? Do you share my Disney infatuation? Do you love reading? Collecting stamps? What is your obsession?

Meet Me Monday: Destress

We’ve made it to another Monday!

Today’s Meet Me Monday question is: What do you do to destress?

There’s nothing as calming for me to close the shades a little and crawling into bed to enjoy the silence

I recently learned that I’m an ISFJ personality type and like most introverted people, I need to withdraw to recharge and destress, which is a little hard to do with my little guys running around the house. When there’s another adult around to watch the boys, I like to hide in my room. Just 30 minutes of laying on my bed and reading or playing with my phone is enough to give me a boost to make it through the day.

How about you? What do you do to relax and get rid of stress?

Meet Me Monday: Funny Video

As an exercise to prompt myself to write more often, I’m going to start posting answers to conversation starter like questions every Monday. If you feel inspired, join on in by commenting or posting on your own site!

This week’s question: What was the last funny video you watched? 

I watched this video of Morgan Freeman doing a dramatic reading of the lyrics to Justin Beiber’s “Love Yourself” earlier this week and was giggling to myself the whole time. Enjoy!
