couple on couch date night at home

We’re currently on day 14 of our CoronaVirus lockdown. Anyone know what day of the week it is? Cause I’ve been wearing the same pair of yoga pants for 3 days straight, our extra quarantine snacks are long gone and it’s possible that I may have forgotten how to drive a car. Seriously, I don’t even know where my keys are.

But I’m starting to think we might need to adjust to our new normal for longer than I had anticipated. Our schools here in PA just extended the closures until mid April, and chances are it could be longer than that. So some of the normal things we used to take for granted may need to… well, adapt.

To be fair, Disney has an amazing product to offer, and they know it. And no matter how expensive it gets, people still flock there with wallets open wide and a smile on their face. And I’m right there with them wearing my Disney tee and Mickey ears. So as long as people are willing to pay the prices they charge we won’t be seeing any major drop in price any time soon.

Boy Zip lining in costa rica

Costa Rica is not remotely lacking in adventurous opportunities. Most of them I wouldn’t touch with a 10 foot pole, because I’m a wuss (a casual walk through the rainforest in the dark? No thanks!).

pasta in glass jar

There’s just something about the transition from the Christmas season to the New Year that puts the drive in me to make all things new and clean and organized. Wether I follow through or not is another issue, but at least the desire is there. So while I’m feeling motivated, I’m starting with my kitchen. Or more specifically my pantry.

Welcome Friends!

Hi! My name is Kim. I’m the mom of 3 boys, the wife to 1 husband, and the driver of a 2013 Toyota Sienna. I love Jesus and my family, I have an obsession with getting a good deal, and if I had it my way I’d spend every weekend at Disney World trying a new food shaped like a Disney character.
