Disney Mug Tuesday- Mickey Mug

This week we are talking about my favorite mouse. I don’t have very many mugs with Mickey on them but I do have. a few. When you go to Disney world your are surrounded by all things Mickey which is great. Some of my favorite memories was meeting this guy in Epcot. The first time you see Mickey at Disney World is very surreal. You see pics and videos of other people but until you are right there beside him and hugging him it is a different ballgame.

As you can see we met Mickey a few times but each time was just as magical. I am so looking forward to seeing this mouse in 2018.

For now I will just drink out of this mug.

Disney Mug Tuesday- Princess Castle Mug

When you are a dad of girls you trade in the obsession of superheros and take up reality that your kids are into everything princess. From crowns and dresses to the shoes and make up, all my girls want to do is be a princess. They are so cute so it is not really that hard for them.

When we were in Disney World we met a lot of princesses. We even had a few meals with some of them. My girls were in awe of them and never knew what to say.

Here are some of the princesses they met.

When I got this cool mug my kids kept fighting over it. So I kept it for myself. Check it out.

 

#MedalMonday- Disney Virtual Race- July

It has been a hot minute since I posted a Medal Monday so I recently completed my time for the July Disney Virtual Race and wanted to share my medal for the month.

This month I really hopped back on the track and treadmill. I have not really ran this hard since the Charlotte Marathon event last November so it has been since to work my distance back up and to get me ready for the races and competitions I have coming in 2018.

Disney Mug Tuesday- Spider-Man Homecoming Mug

Who is excited about the new Spider-Man movie opening this weekend?

I know I will going this weekend to see it. I am a huge Marvel fan and when I saw this mug at The Disney Store, I knew I had to have it. The eyes change when warm liquid is in the mug for added amazing. Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite characters and I have been excited about this upcoming movie since I saw the web slinger in Captain America: Civil War.

Are you going to see it? I will be bringing my mug with me.

Happy Tuesday!

Disney Mug Tuesday- Waking Goofy

This weeks mug tells exactly how I feel this morning. I really don’t want to wake up and go to work today. I have no idea why the early part of the week I feel like a zombie.

One of the things I love about this much is that not only does it feature Goofy, who is my favorite, but the cool saying on the side. When were at Disney I made sure to meet him as many times as I could.

#MedalMonday- Disney Virtual Race- June

I said a couple of weeks back that I have found a new love for virtual races. They are fun to do and you can do them on your time. There is not crowd of people to fight though so really can go your own pace.

I found out that Disney has its own virtual race series going on this summer. So I checked it out. I mean I love running and I REALLY love Disney so this was a no brainer.

I signed up for the whole entire series and I ran my first one Tuesday to wrap up the month of June’s 5k. I am really excited to have done this race and it features one of my favorite characters and that is Pluto!

My Perfect Father’s Day

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.
