We are officially back in the real world. All the Disney World magic is gone. It is cold and rainy here. Even though we did get a few sprinkles down in Florida, it was still a 70 degree rain shower as opposed to a 30 degree rain shower.
Yesterday was 40 degrees and I automatically grabbed my winter coat. Pre-Disney, I would have just walked out the door in a light jacket. I am not ready for real world adulting. But I guess Andy has to go to school and laundry has to get done.
You guys, Disney was fantastic. Yeah, it was intense. Lots of walking and waking up early and staying up late. There was also lots of moments of sprinting for the shuttle with sleeping kids. I have a newly discovered old lady hip pain.
But, like I said, so worth it. The boys’ looks of awe and excitement will be implanted in my brain forever.
All the kids, Mike, me, the entire family had such a fun time. My sister in law warned me that after your first trip you’ll start planning your next visit. And I, being the disbeliever that I am, doubted her.
But, shhhh—I am already thinking of what I want to do the next time we go.
Until that next time though, reality.
Cooking, cleaning, laundry, more cleaning, toys everywhere. UGH! Why isn’t there a Magic Band for everyday life?
Luckily I showed you guys how to make this super easy one pot meal with cheese, beer, noodles, and rotisserie chicken over on Instagram before I left. You make a thin cream sauce with beer and honey, toss in the noodles, cover, and cook.
Then you add cheese and chicken—but just buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it up. Then instead of baking the whole thing in the oven for a little bit of crisp, add in my favorite Dry Roasted Chopped Macadamia Nuts from Mauna Loa.
I feel like this dinner can ease anybody back into a life filled with 4 days worth of stinky, sweaty laundry, right?
