We’ve been doing the Dave Ramsey plan for a couple of years now. (If you’re not familiar with his financial genius, this is a fantastic get-out-of-debt-save-your-pennies plan).
For a while, we’ve been tucking away dollars and cents. My dream has been to take my kids back to Disneyworld. I was hunting around the Internet a month or two ago and just for fun, searched “last minute Disney cruises” because first of all, I’m fun and second of all, I like to live on the wild side. Just call me Goofy. Hehe.
Well, lo and behold, I found something. There were only a couple of spots left and it was deeply discounted (like 70%). Plus, my toddler doesn’t turn 3 for a few more weeks, so she’s practically free. It’s sailing the week of Thanksgiving.
And in SEVEN days (after an extremely long road trip) we’ll be on it (squeeeeelllll) because we’re opening our Christmas cruise present early!
Unless we get The Swine Flu. Or scabies. I think we can still go with lice. But I might need to check.
Basically, barring a major health crisis and a severe THAT family disaster (which sadly isn’t even that far-fetched these days), we’ll be dining with Mickey and eating butter shaped like his head.
I’ll be scheduling some posts while we’re gone and will update with pictures of me weeping at the site of Cinderella (because she’s totally real) when we return.
But mainly, I just wanted y’all to know that dreams do come true.
And piggy banks totally rock.
This will be our first family cruise, any tips?
Back to reality~
Waking up to clearance Halloween masks is very scary.
But the mask really does bring out the blue in Cinderella’s eyes. Dontchathink?
P.S. Did you know bad guys like waffles? They are people too.
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
