Just when I think my little girls could not surprise me anymore, they do. I had a great Father’s Day and thanks to my girls and my amazing wife, I was showered with love the entire day.
I woke up to “Happy Father’s Day” from K-Dub, which was followed by lots of hugs and kisses. After we got dressed they handed me their homemade cards. Nothing is better then a homemade card.
I was taken to my favorite breakfast spot which is Stacks in Waxhaw. If you ever go I suggest you go early as the line can get crazy. We stuffed our faces with pancakes, French toast, and hash browns and bacon. So good and so worth it!
After breakfast went on our usual Sunday Target run to get some things for the week and my wife bought me some new clothes. When we got home, I left with K-Dub and went to see Cars 3. It was a great time with just the two of us. I spoiled her with candy and popcorn and she soaked up every minute with me.
When we got home we went swimming for a couple of hours at the neighborhood pool and then went home where I made my famous Mac and cheese with fried squash and cornbread. It was yummy! Then I was treated to Pelican’s Snowcones in Waxhaw. This place is so good. They over 50 flavors and it is very affordable. I got cherry margarita and blue raspberry. So good.
I loved my Father’s Day. I got to spend it with my girls who I love more then anything in this world. Being a dad is the best job I could ask for and one that I never take for granted.
Everyone knows that Pandora is the new and hottest thing at Disney World right now. I have not had the chance to experience this yet but from what I read on the blogs and seen on the videos, and heard from people is that it is a really cool place and worth the long lines. The lines for the two rides are anywhere from 200 to 250 minute waits. That is crazy.
I knew that when this place opened there was going to be cool merchandise to go with it. So when Pandora opened I found this cool mug on the Disney Parks app and had to have it. It os the Floating Mountains Mug.
I am so excited to visit this cool place next April and experience it in person but for now I can just sit back with this mug and have a little bit of Pandora at home.
I recently got some new mugs from the Disney store and one that I am most proud about is this R2D2 mug. I have seen this mug mug floating around Instagram the past couple of months and I have not been able to find it. Being the Star Wars fan that I am I kept looking and it finally came available the other week to by.
My favorite thing about this mug is the not only does it look like R2D2 but it holds a lot of coffee. This is good cause this morning I am having one of those “I must have coffee NOW” moments.
I am a huge Star Wars fan and I really thing Disney buying them was the greatest thing. Next April I am running The Dark Side Half Marathon. I registered last month and I need to make my reservations soon.
Anyways, Happy Disney Mug Tuesday!
One of my favorite things about Disney is that they also own Marvel. I am a huge fan of The Marvel Cinematic Universe and I love all the movies. My favorite Avenger is Captain America.
I wish that Disney World had the Marvel superhero there like they do at Disneyland. Maybe one day I will make it out there and see them and also ride that new Guardians of the Galaxy ride. I hear it is fun and the youtube videos are incredible.
It also helps that this mug hold over 16 oz of coffee cause I need all the coffee I can get.
You might have seen this mug on my Instagram page or on my Facebook but it is one of my favorite mugs cause it s so cool looking. One of my favorite Disney movies is the OG herself Snow White. It is just a classic. I tried letting K-Dub watch it but the Evil Queen scared the crap out of her.
It was also really cool when we were at Disney we met the same Snow White twice and she was so nice. She even recognized us the second time we met.
Also The Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train was in fact K-Dub’s first ever rollercoaster.
So about two weeks ago we made a trip to the Disney Store. One of my favorite stores obviously. I had some left over gift cards from Disney World and wanted to use them. So of course we could not go with putting K-Dub in her princess dress.
I went straight for the mugs. They had a lot of good ones and I ended up buying three. Picking out a new mug is a hard decision as some of them were pretty cool. Then I realized that I do not own a single mug with Mickey Mouse on it. How can I be a true Disney fan without a Mickey Mouse mug? So after getting over my epiphany I found two I really liked but ended up making my decision based on the amount of coffee I could pour in the mug. So I chose this one.
I love this mug and it is a great addition to my collection. Happy Tuesday!
