I can’t believe it’s already Friday again! I’m not really sure where the week has gone?! I swear it flew by!
Disney This Week
This week we had an overnight stay at Boulder Ridge Villas at the Wilderness Lodge. It was a short and quick visit but the kids had so much fun!
We also spent a couple evening hours at Hollywood Studios and then Magic Kingdom the following morning.
Crowds have definitely increased at the parks. You can noticeably tell a difference even from January to this month and I anticipate that crowds are only going to remain steady or continue to increase as we approach historically busier times of the year: Spring Break, Easter break, Summer vacations, the 50th Anniversary, etc.
I think we’re getting a lot of West-Coasters visiting right now because they’re really missing Disneyland. I also think a lot of Northerners are cold and just ready for some sunshine.
Walt Disney World is open and available and a place where people are wearing masks and we all know Disney is implementing higher cleaning standards and social distancing, etc. So I totally see why someone would choose to vacation at Walt Disney World right now vs somewhere else where they’re not sure what the “rules” or standards are.
Other Happenings This Week
In my non-Disney life (LOL) this week, it’s been relatively quiet. I focused a lot of my spare time on trying to clean up around the house.
I am perpetually behind on keeping up with housework so I’m trying to consciously carve out a little bit of time each week to actually dedicate to mopping or vacuuming or cleaning the bathroom.
I don’t know if you are like me in that sense but I am not very domestic and I struggle with keeping up with those things. It’s actually funny whenever I get a message or comment that says “how do you do it all?!” or “you must have great time management skills!” LOLOLOL. I SWEAR I DO NOT DO IT ALL NOR DO I HAVE GREAT TIME MANAGEMENT SKILLS.
Rather, I do a few things really well and then I skimp on — or completely ignore — a lot of other things.
It’s very much give-or-take for me. I focus on what I have the energy to-do and the things that bring me joy and then the other things I kind of push to the back burner until I can’t take it anymore and then I tackle them.
I shared a little bit of house stuff on Instagram stories this week! I never know if I should share that kind of stuff; when I do I usually get a lot of positive feedback so maybe I will try to put together some additional room tours here on the blog so that photos and links for items are easily accessible.
Let me know if you’d have interest in that!
I do love Disney so so much but I also have a big space in my creative soul for decorating the house or doing projects around the house. I actually was a home decor blogger wayyyy before I ever blogged about Disney!
So sharing that aspect of my life is also something that fills my cup creatively!
OKAY SO. ON TO THE MOST IMPORTANT TOPIC.
I’m thinking about starting Poldark. Am I cheating on Outlander if I start Poldark?! Will Jamie Fraser still be my tv boyfriend? Will I still dream of touching the stones and traveling back in time to Scotland!?
I’ve gone back-and-forth on starting Poldark. Like will I still be Outlander obsessed? Is it going to live-up to Outlander?! The consensus of what I’ve read online so far is basically like if you love Outlander you’re gonna love Poldark and right now we are in the midst of droughtlander. SOOOOO I think I’m diving in!!
Also, no I haven’t read the Outlander books yet. I have a goal to read more this year but I’m struggling to actually find the time. I know some people would say “well read at night instead of watching TV” — unfortunately my brain doesn’t work that way HAHA! By the time the evening comes I feel like mush and I literally just want to binge out on tv.
I don’t know if you’re like that too but my best work is done in the morning.
ANYWAYS if you’ve watched Poldark before let me know if you love it! Also are you an Outlander fan too?! I know like 25% of my audience is also obsessed!
OR is there another show that you’re watching that you think I’d love? I’d love to hear from you in the comments. I really enjoy these casual posts where I can kind of just talk about whatever is on my mind for the week. 🙂
