What I'm Loving Wednesday

Today I'm loving...


my nieces
and the way they sing to me their "Good Morning Song" every morning...makes waking up so much better.


that it's Wednesday
with the expansion and the changes at work, there's not enough hours in my day anymore.


there's no class this Saturday
Finally a day I can sleep in past 6am; and spend the day with my little monsters; or just hang out and do nothing.


that in 16 days I'm going to visit one of my bestfriends and hang out with Mickey. :)


and lastly, the bartender who's going to make me my Martini after work.

A friend of mine gave me this bottle of Acqua Panna water to try this past weekend. Since it's all he talks about and drinks, I thought I'd give it a try. Honestly, I don't know a thing about water, other than you must drink atleast 8 glasses a day.  So I decided to do some research on this brand.
This is what I found on this Acqua Panna brand on wikipedia...
Acqua Panna is an italian brand of bottled water.It's name is from the Villa Panna in the hills of Tuscany, where the natural spring was first discovered.The Acqua Panna source is located 3,700 feet high in the Apennine Mountains of Tuscany, to the north of Florence. In the 16th century the powerful ruling family of the Medici's in Florence, owned the spring and it was fenced off as private property. The family had fresh drinking water from this preserved natural spring, as for many other unclaimed springs were contaminated with animal waste. This brand now belongs to San Pellegrino, which is owned by NestlĂ©. Nestle distributes the natural water into Europe & North America. Acqua Panna has become the exclusive bottled beverage at many luxury establishments.

After I was done with this bottle of Acqua Panna, I went to the grocery and purchased another bottle at $2.29 which is crazy if you ask me, but then again, I'll spend $5 on a cup of coffee everyday; Yea I know, I'm crazy... Anyway, I then had Zephyrhills, Mountain Valley Spring Water, and Fiji water and compared them all.
I say Fiji water tastes best!

It's Happy Tuesday...


It's Happy Tuesday!

Disney Trip

Here are pictures from our Disney Trip.
It was the girl's first time at Disney, they're excitement was priceless.

We started our trip with the Character Breakfast at Cape May Cafe...
Perfect morning until arrival at the resort where Layla tripped and fell on the concrete scraping her forehead, nose, and cheek. :(  

After breakfast, we spent the day shopping and exploring at Downtown Disney

We stayed at the Nick Hotel, and the girls got to meet Pablo and SpongeBob

 Not even cold weather can keep these girls out of the pool...
Water temp was 80 degrees

  And they're ready for Magic Kingdom

A few bumps here and there but it was an amazing trip.
Can't wait for next year!

Starbucks- I think I'm in Love...

I was never really a coffee drinker, in fact I didn't have my first starbucks hot coffee till about 2 years ago. Everytime I went to Starbucks, I always ordered the same thing, Caramel Frappucino. Perhaps  I just didn't know what to order, or the fact that I'm not one to order new things kept me from indulging my taste buds.... And then one day, I ordered a Caramel Macchiatto & I was hooked. :) 

Last year December, I decided that for the new year, I would try a different coffee every month from the menu. So far this is what I've tried...

My Starbucks addictions by month:
December: Peppermint Mocha
January: White Chocolate Mocha
February: Cinnamon Dolce Latte

Looking forward to my March addiction.
