{I have an embarrassingly deep love of disney}
I snapped these while we were on the rocking ferris wheel in california adventure on our last disney trip. half of us screaming in terror/motion sickness and half of us screaming with delight. brittany of course being the loudest.
a memory I will never forget.


how does one acquire wit?

I feel like all this sitting at a desk all day+winter has sucked what little I had out of me. 
anyone know where I can round up some more?

for real though.


how bad do you want it?

I feel like I need to give my health quest a name… a name and an end date. well, not so much an end date since this is a long term pursuit, but rather a point for evaluation. so I’m calling it healthy 2012 (in honor of J who chants "healthy 2012" every time we go to the gym) and I’m reviewing my first set of goals 3/31/12, which is rapidly approaching. hitting some bumps in the road has caused me to spend a good portion of time asking myself 


 is it worth: 10 more painful crunches, one less thin mint, a slightly hungry feeling in my stomach?
 the answer has always resoundingly been YES. every time I feel tempted to be lazy I ask myself how badly do I want this and it pushes me. this concept is spilling over and now I find myself approaching everything this way. it's given me somewhat of a new lease on life. I am giving myself permission to control my own choices, to hold only myself responsible for the consequences of my actions. there is no one to blame but myself for failure so it's time to find out what I'm made of. these fitness goals have become a reflection of something much bigger. am I going to be the kind of person who accomplishes what she sets out to do to the best of her ability or am I going to continue skating along never reaching higher?

 this health quest is looking suspiciously like figuring out who I am. 
and I’m liking it.


secret's out

yes, I love social media. I enjoy clinking through facebook, sending random (mostly dumb) thoughts out to the universe via twitter, & snapping shots on my life and documenting it with instagram. it's fun for me to put myself out there and see/share with others.

maybe its not your thing, that's fine. to each his own, I get it, but if it's not your thing for one reason or another it doesn't automatically make you too cool for school.

there I said it.


in case you needed to know

breakfast is best when eaten...
in your christmas jams.
with a princess bowl and a fancy spoon,
with a high level of eyes closed concentration/enjoyment,
with peanut butter and toast of course,
and topped with some thoughtful cartoon watching. 


hang onto your hats

this here is the wildest longest ride post in the wilderness history
so weird.
there is this fun room in belle's library where lumiere will tell you what disney character you are/look most like. britty was tinkerbelle just like her aunt kaite! it was surprisingly accurate. 
brittany got a bit of everyone's frozen banana in exchange for a snuggle.
old iPhone was a lifesaver when brittany was too short for the big kids rides
there was a lot of dancing about of course
and some tired babies
ok! this was amazing. spencer got selected from a big crowd (I was jumping up and down practically tossing him in the jedi master's face, because I was not about to let him miss out) to have "jedi" training and fight darth vader. it was the cutest/most awesome thing ever. I love disney so much, haha. 
on day two the whole family wore our disney shirts compliments of the jensen family. haha we looked pretty cool!
of course there had to be some sword fighting too.
disney with family is honestly one of my most favorite things on the planet. I was in absolute heaven. can't wait for J and I to take our own family to the happiest place on earth one day.
