Life in the Green House

I blog at Life In The Green House, Green because it's our last name, not because of a reduced carbon footprint. I started blogging to keep everyone up-to-date once my daughter arrived and it has since become much more. In essence the blog is a snapshot of our life, an extension of my need to talk all day long. I'm saved by His grace, a wife and mother, incurably southern, blonder than nature intended and a lover of all things caffeinated. 

disney recap, magic kingdom

Friday was our last full day at Disney and our last park day. I really wanted it to be magical from start to finish, so BK woke up to a dress from Cinderella herself and an invitation to dinner at the castle. I planned for us to be at Magic Kingdom on our last day at Disney ....more

disney recap, chef mickey’s and our day “off”

If you know me, you know I’m not really good at being still. I don’t really have “off” days, I don’t take naps, I don’t sit down much, I just love to go and do. So even though we penciled in an “off” day at Disney, I’m not sure that anyone really believed we’d take the day off and relax at the room ....more

disney recap, animal kingdom

Our first full day at Disney was spent at Animal Kingdom. Did I mention our last visit to Disney World was mid-June and Animal Kingdom was possibly the most humid day this Alabama girl has ever experienced? And we live in what feels like 100% humidity on a regular basis ....more

disney world, 2015

We had the best trip to sunny Orlando to meet Mickey and his gang this past week. Early on, we decided that we wanted my mom to tag along for an extra set of hands, it’s always better to outnumber the children on a trip to Disney World, right? Then, we invited Allen’s family and they decided to join us as well! ...more

what’s up, April?

We packed April full of all the things we love. Like birthday parties and celebrating and family and friends and good food. We’re sad to see it go, but ready for May and summer and all the things...more
