Billy Goats on a Leash & Shower Poof Prom Dresses: My Life in a Legacybox

My mama has been videotaping me since the day I was born. She’s always been a documenter, scrapbooker, life-bio-keeper.  That’s how she rolls. She was blogging when blogging wasn’t cool. Seriously, here is a soundless video of my parents holding me as a newborn baby in the hospital, in all my 10 lb, 6 ounce glory. Yes, I was a giant newborn. I added a little muzak to spice it up a bit. YOU GUYS!! HOW COOL IS THAT???? Almost 40 year old footage from my birth in 1977 that’s now … [Read more...]

Another Shrektacular New Year at the Opryland Hotel!

After lots of internet searching and travel planning, we decided to once again visit the Opryland Hotel for another New Years Eve with Shrek and the Dreamworks crew.   You just cannot beat it for entertainment for kids in the 4-6 year old age group.  It has so much to do and the place is just so huge that you don’t have to leave for anything.  I love a good no-driving vacation.   We bought the package deal again this year so that included tickets to ICE, breakfast with Shrek, character … [Read more...]
