Long Time No See

Well, well, well, I know what you're thinking "now why don't she write?" lol. Let me first apologize for not checking-in the last few months. Then, let me just say that this has been the craziest year I can remember (and I don't necessarily mean that in a good way).

Since we last talked, I worked a lot in April, we had an acquaintance of ours, aka the moron, and her teen daughter stay with us for about a month (what was suppose to be two weeks turned into four...pretty much the last half of April and first half of May. I was so not surprised either), my daddy finally got back to work after his motorcycle accident, I fell in love and one of my best girl friends got married! Holly cow that was a long sentence.

Ok, so lets brake it down a little (I will try to keep this short and sweet):

The Moron; This is a really long story, I'm sure I will get to it at some point but at the moment I will just say THANK GOD THAT BITCH IS OUT OF OUR HOUSE!!!! However, her daughter, "Sunshine", was a true joy to get to know and I will miss her!

Ok moving on, Daddy; I know I didn't mention much about this earlier but my daddy was in a motorcycle accident at the first of the year, he walked away from it with what seemed like very little injury. Of course the next few days he started to notice more and more that hurt, and since the ER they took him to did a half ass job of checking him over (a 50something year old man on a motorcycle gets hit by a truck and flies over the hood and you take him at his word that "he's ok"...more morons!) he had to go back. Anyway, another long story short, he had to have surgery on his hand and was unable to work for about three months. Now I love my daddy, and I'm very grateful that he was not hurt more than he was. However, having him sitting around the house with nothing to do but worry about money for three months is just not fun for anyone. Thankfully he has since gone back to work, hand is doing just fine and we are all happier now! lol

I fell in love; wow, well this is a biggy...I will post separately about this in a little bit, there is a lot I want to share.

My best friend's wedding; Dottie, one of my best friends, finally got married the the other day. She was stunning! And though I'm not a big fan of marriage, I think these two actually have a chance...cause if he hasn't left her yet, he'll stick through anything! lol. But for real, love to you both and congrats!

So I think we're kind of all caught up now. But don't worry, I will fill in more juicy details later. At the moment I was just wanting to get back here and touch base. I hope all is well with all of you and I'll be back soon :)

Oh and P.S. I might be moving to Savannah, GA!

A Monster's Life For Me

Sorry I haven't been posting a lot lately, life has been pretty busy the last few weeks, but overall good.

Anyway, the last week or so I have really been working on some arts and crafts. I have made several things but most of all I have customized a couple Monster High dolls and have made some jewelry and clothes for them as well! I finally got them listed today so I thought I would share here.

I have added a link to my Etsy shop, CherrysPassions, on my blog as well so you can easily take a quick peak at what I have for sale :)

I hope you are all having a great week!

Let The Memories Begin!

The most wonderful, exciting, magical place on earth?...I'd have to say that would be Walt Disney World!!! I know, I haven't been around the world and seen or done everything, but I can't imagine any place better in this world than the escape from it that you get in Walt's!

I don't try to hide it; I'm just a big kid sometimes (as both adults and children tell me lol). I love going to Disney World, I love everything about it from the parking lots to the characters's all so magical and such a relief from our hum-drum depressing world.

A couple of my girl friends and I had planned a girls trip to Disney for this spring. We all needed a little escape, one without kids or husbands or anything but us and Disney, and more than just a day trip. So this past week we got a room at Disney's All-Star Music Resort for 3 nights! I love staying on property at Disney, it just removes the last little bit of the world's stress by us not having to drive anywhere...just take the bus...what more do you need! So 4 days, 3 nights on property at Disney World; 2 full days at the parks, all 4 parks, plus several very special events, Downtown Disney and a drive through Celebration, FL with two of my best friends! What an amazing week!

On top of just being able to go to the parks, my friend Alice not only planned the whole trip she also paid for us all to attend the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dinner Party at the Magic Kingdom and the Supercalifragilistic Character Breakfast at Disney's Grand Floridain Resort and Spa! Two events that none of us had ever done before, and let me tell you they were both unbelievably magical!

Well now, enough talking, here are a few pictures from our trip!

Man what a great trip! Of course I was totally dead by the end of legs haven't hurt that much in a long time. I finally had a day to recoup today, and as much as I didn't want our time at Disney to end I am glad to be getting things back to normal after such a long month.

...I'm already planning my next trip though ;) I can't wait to go back!
