Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I went to the post office the other day to mail out my "Blog Prize" to Erin and I saw these stamps... They caught my eye and I thought they were the cutest stamps I had seen in a LONG LONG TIME!!!

and this!!!....


And last but not least... this one...

I remember being small.. and always.. always waiting for Sunday nights when "THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISNEY" came on... I loved watching The apple dumpling gang, or That Darn Cat, or Escape to Witch Mountain and if we were ever so lucky.. possibly a showing of Cinderella.... I was captivated... I loved all the creation and talent of things I never thought I would see or touch in my life time. However; I finally did it.. in 2004 we went to Disney World.. We had friends that moved to FL and worked there! Not only did we get into ALL the parks for FREE.. my hubby's uncle gave us FREE TICKETS to fly down and back!!! To me.. I was in awe!!! I would FINALLY touch Cinderella's castle.. after many many Sunday's of watching Tinker belle fly over it... I no longer had to be jealous. Ü
I know that some can't or don't see the "aweeee" in Disney.. and that's ok.. I had a CRAPPY CRAPPY childhood... and seriously don't remember to much of it... but I remember the "ESCAPE" on Sunday nights into a world of mystery.. and fantasy....( and I still hear the snide remarks of my mother.. "Why can't any of you be talented and make me millions like these kids"... yeah.. money was her life... )

However... my kiddos are going again this FEB... I hope they have the time of their lives. They will get to hug Mickey again.. and meet up with my dear friend in FL... I'll still be home in the cold.. brrrrrr.... Oh well... I was going to CRASH their fun and fly to FL too... but I figured... they are truly old enough for me to let go.. a little... Gosh.. My daughter will be in College in a year!!! I don't WANT to let go... Time flies sooooooooooo fast!!!

Oh.. I made the yummies supper last night.. super quick.. super easy!!! Hubby loves seafood/chicken Fettuccine Alfredo from a restaurant here in town... I seriously don't enjoy this restaurant.. I think the atmosphere is stuffy... so I said.. Why don't I make you your own.. He was game...

So here's what I did...
I went and bought scallops and shrimp.. ( Lobster was WAY out of the question cause of price).
Cooked those all in butter with garlic ( yes I'm a bit Paula Deen here and I used a WHOLE stick of butter)
Meanwhile...
I was boiling two boxes of Fettuccine
Cut three chicken breasts in half to thin them out and grilled them on the grill.
I boiled a bag of broccoli in the process...

Once everything was cooked... I chopped up the broccoli into smaller pieces.. chopped the chicken up and added them to the drained noodles... then I added THREE jars of already made Alfredo sauce ( I have no problem making my own sauce.. this was just in my cupboard ---I was shopping at home first)... mixed that up well and heated it up.... VOILA!! My portion was ready...
After I scooped out the already made dinner I then added the scallops and shrimp with butter to my hubbies.. and a little for my son... Let's just say.. EVERYONE was STUFFED!!! and it was yummy... I think that was a QUICK 30 minute meal.. hands down.. Ü
Here's a picture of my portion...


And here is what I'm reading...


Someone asked for reviews of the books that I have read... I have no problem doing that!! I'll leave a couple review for tomorrow!!!

I LOVE the wonderful world of disney! I used to look foward to it on sunday nights too....then they switched it to saturday nights and I was sooooo upset :(

OOO I also loved the Wonderful World of Disney. OO and I loved Escape to Witch Mountain...you must be about my age. My childhood escape was Tv and Books. My parents were young when I was born and so I grew up with them. Sometimes I was more adult than they were espcially when they fought about everything. They are still married which is a miracle and they still argue and fight over everything....but yes I have fond memories of waiting each week for the Wonderful World of Disney because it did provide an escape from my life.

I's really so sorry, Terri that your childhood was so horrid. But, I am glad you had your Disney escape.

But, I truly believe your lack of good parents has made you strive to be the fantastic mother you are!!!! Way to survive and overcome, Terri! You should be so proud of yourself!!!

Sorry I haven't been blogging lately, I've been in a bit of a funk these past few days.

I agree, those are the cutests stamps. I've bought two books of them so far. LOL. I would love to go to Disney World one day and hope to do so when Maiya is a little older. At least old enough to remember that she went. :P Maybe in a few years.

And that seafood/chicken fettuccine Alfredo looks yummy. :)
