Thoughts of the Day

- I do not see the fun and excitement in Twitter. A friend of mine has been bugging me to sign up forever, so I finally did, and yeah. I'm just really not getting why its so big and fabulous for me to use. I think I'll stick to facebook. Its much easier.

- I was happy to read a friends post today about comparing herself to the world and not ever living up to worldly standards. I'd link up to it but again, I'm blog-illiterate and have no idea how to do that. Not that I would wish it on anyone, but its nice to know I'm not alone in the world in feeling not up to the worlds standards of what I "should" be. But as she points out, that is NOT whats important. What is important is knowing we are daughters of Heavenly Father and he made us just the way we are for a reason, and more importantly....he is not finished with us yet. Thats what matters most.

- In my planning for Disneyland I have set myself 2 goals. First goal, save $1000 by August. Second goal, is a personal one that I will disclose at a later date. The money goal, however, might need to be revised which will be easier after child support starts rolling in (come stuff. lets get a move on!) and this is because I was looking at ticket prices...and about died. for a 2 day hopper pass for kids 3 - 9 it was like $150! So JUST tickets alone for all 4 of us would be almost $650 (the adult passes were like $180 or somethin). Ouch is all I can say. So that and gas to drive there would take the entire thousand. bueno.


  1. Not sure if they have them available in Utah or not... but Costco should have discounted Dland tickets. They won't be park-hoppers, but in the summer, with 3 kids, you probably won't have time to park-hop anyway (ps. the best time for a dland trip, if you can, is from Oct-Feb). Another saver... don't go with a Disney hotel. There are PLENTY of nice hotels just across the street from the park that are very decently priced. And they're within walking distance, so no need to worry about parking fees. And you can plan on spending about $10-15 per person, per meal... at the park. Don't think outside the park is cheaper, it's not. You're better off eating in the park. And save your souvenir money for inside the park also... you'll get ripped off outside. Just some helpful hints from one that LOVESSSSS Disneyland!! I'm so jealous!!!

  2. Stick with me Kim - I'm a Disneyland MASTER!! :)

  3. Haha thanks Betsy! I'm now officially counting on you to find some bang up deals for us! :)
