Would you look at this?

I LIVE HERE. Okay well not technically. It's about 45 minutes up the road but I PRACTICALLY LIVE HERE! It's God's grace. It makes no sense that we move from one ocean to the other when I love the ocean as much as I do. Maybe this is not everyone's idea of paradise, but it is mine. Sigh. 

We went to Cape Canaveral yesterday and I just had to share that (instagram) photo. That's real life, a real place you can go, not a joke, not far away, not photoshopped. God floors me every time I think about it. 

Today's Top Two Tuesday topic is random fact about me. Last time I let you guys know that I took 4 years of French and 8 of piano and my skill in both were lacking, and then about how much I love the grocery store. But, I'm random by nature so it will be easy to do two more.

1. I am not a fan of the Disney... Well, to be clear, that would be Disneyland or World. I say that because we're going there today, as the Sarge has never been. I'm not sure I love the company but I know I don't love the theme parks. Living so close to Disney World, though, we got some tickets on the low low (like, the free low) and are braving Disney. This is a good time of year to do it. But Disney forces four things on me that I don't tolerate well :: 1. People forcing their tired (or just plain irritating) kids to do things they're not fond of (think the pics of kids sobbing while Mickey is giving the peace sign). :: 2. People who hate their jobs and/or said kids who have to fake it and fail miserably. :: 3. Crowds. I have terrible anxiety but that is the reason we're going now (and in the middle of the week). and 4. RUDE PEOPLE. Vacationing people are hands down the rudest people I have ever met, and that goes for just about anywhere. and 5. overpriced snacks, but that's not their fault... it's consumerism lol. And no, I'm not a cynic. Not really. I just know what I like and what stresses me out. So, say a little prayer for me that I don't have a psychotic break. At least I don't have kids. (whew).

And now that I don't have any more readers....

2. I make all our bread. There's a neutral random fact if there ever was one. You may find the occasional french loaf if I'm making bruschetta for a crowd, but for the most part, I craft all our bread. Sometimes, we don't eat much bread because it's a hundred thirty-seven degrees in Florida and the last thing I want is an oven on, but it stands. No grocery store carbs for us. (at least not in the form of bread. but that's beside the point.)

love, me

  1. I'm in California and a bit older than you and we used to go to Disneyland all the time as a kid. Once I was a Mom we would go once every few years and even though I have fond memories of Disneyland (back in the day with those E-coupons) I totally agree with all that you said. Last time for me was 1996. I just can't afford it now.
