Memory Maker Photo Service at Walt Disney World Another addition to Disney's MyMagic+ has arrived. Disney's Memory Maker replaces the Photopass+ that was introduced just over a year ago!

So....let's get the skinny on this new product:

What DOES it include:

It includes the Digital Download of allllll of your photos taken while you are at Walt Disney World.
(the ONLY exception to this, is that it has a 3 day window. So you *really* need to order it before you leave home!)

It includes your attraction photos (Splash Mountain, Expedition Everest, etc)
your dining photos (Chef Mickey's, 1900 Park Fare, etc)
 and all of your Photopass Photographer photos during your Walt Disney World vacation.

How much is it:

What does it NOT include:
 This is the important thing to note:
 It does NOT include a CD.
It DOES include the digital download, but if you want the CD, you will need to add that to your My Disney Experience account, as the CD add-on. ($9.95)

It does NOT include the photo gallery/stock images.
That will be an additional $30 charge.

 So, if you want the CD, you will need to add that.
If you want the photo gallery/stock images, you will need to add those.

Otherwise, the $149 will just about cover all of your Disney Photopass needs.

Celebrating 14 years of Chapman

14 years ago sweet little Chapman made our family complete.

I knew after we lost Elijah, that my heart couldn't take much more.

Through a very tender, sick, volatile, fragile pregnancy, many times, I prayed to God...if *you* think we are finished...then we can be finished...but please let this little guy make it!

And He did.
And this cute little personality-filled kid was a fighter, and wow! I'm glad he was!

Someone was telling me this morning at church "wow...he is just SO much like Scott"
and it hit me.

It all came rushing back.

The sweetest memory.

His Aunt Kendall used to talk to my belly, while I was on bedrest..and she would say "I hope you grow up to be as great as my little brother!"

She adored her little brother so much.

And just today, (I am not sure why I have blocked that memory from my mind!) but it all came back to me.

And 14 years later, I think she is on her way to getting her wish!

And I know she's still just as proud!

So....Chappy Birthday!!!

Meaningful Beauty testing! 

So, I was chosen by Influenster to test the new Meaningful Beauty.

First off, let me start with this.

I have awful skin!

I am so very self conscience about it.

And so anytime I can try something new...I try it. After all, what can it hurt!

I must say...I love how this stuff feels on my face. I apply it first thing in the morning, after washing my face, and it feels so clean! And smooth.

Alot of reviews I read, said that they like it in the evening, but I truly love it in the morning. So, to each her own :)

Anyways, I won't yet do a before/after post...because I am only about a week or so in....but I do LOVE how it makes my face look.

And that says A LOT from me!

Can you look them in the eye?

I was in the waiting room of our Orthodontist's office Friday morning, and I watched a teenager frantically typing on her phone.

Her fingers were pressing so hard, and so quickly, I thought she might crack the phone in half.

Her mom was glancing over her shoulder.....NOT so inconspicuously.

And just as the frustrated media maven was slowing her roll, the mom grabbed her fingers, as if to catch her quick attention.

She said to her "Be careful before you post that. One day, you just might have to look her in the eye!"

The girl stopped.
Phone in the lap.

Silence for a minute.

I just wanted to reach over and give that mom a high five.


In an effort to live life to the fullest, I will admit, I am a Social Media junkie.

I love facebook for all of it's wonderful qualities.

I love connecting with my crazies on twitter, and I love the constant family photo album, and throwback thursdays that instagram can provide.


And I say it with almost a shout in my voice---

None of it is meant to be a blanket you can hide under, when you feel the urge to slam someone, and their character---in an open, public forum, as if you will never have to face them in public.

2013 wins the award, for being the year of Social Media mud-slinging.

And yet, it happened again.

The happenings of this weekend, with the Alabama (oh wait! We lost! We weren't even playing! And I am still a fan of MY team...and I don't give a flip-flop about the other teams!!!) SEC Championship game.

I was going to the game, regardless of who was playing, and so I knew going into it...I would be an Alabama fan, if we were on the field or not.
After all....they do receive hefty chunk of our family budget.

If you *know* me, you know I am always here to have a good time, or I won't be here at all.

I don't do rude (or atleast not intentionally).

I don't do mean-spirited.

I will have fun with it. Or I won't have it at all.
I am sorry that other people can't have a light-heart and spirit about things.
And I am sorry that people take a ball-game so seriously that they are totally ok with losing friendships over it.
That's a shame.

I was on a date / work weekend with my hubby and tons of friends...yet, the words rude, tacky, and no-class were tossed around in my honor.

And the problem with that, yeah, the visual image of those negative things you say....they never go away.

So, in conclusion, take a mom's careful---ADULT---
"Be careful before you post that. One day, you just might have to look her in the eye!"
