My Disney Adventure

This past weekend, my family met up at the Happiest Place on Earth, in sunny Southern California. It seems I enjoy visiting Disneyland almost as much now as I did when I was a kid. My three favorite things about this past adventure:

1. Laughing with my family

2. Taking pictures with the characters (especially the Princesses)

3. Tower of Terror (@ California Adventure)

Inspirational Music: Amy Grant - Better Than A Hallelujah

This song is beautiful...the idea that our simple actions are pleasing to God.

Here's Amy Grant on "Hallelujah"...

"It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased."
— C.S. Lewis (Weight of Glory and Other Addresses)

Sailor-wife images

I went on to look around for some cute images and they had a handful of them that were fit for a sailor-wife, such as myself. Take a look...

Inspirational Music: Brandon Heath - Give Me Your Eyes

The chorus of this song says it all:

Give me your eyes for just one second
Give me your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me your love for humanity
Give me your arms for the broken-hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me your heart for the once forgotten
Give me your eyes so I can see

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

Victoria's Secret + Navy = Must Have!

Victoria's Secret has an entire Pink Collegiate collection, including a few pieces for those in the armed forces (Army and Navy). So, of course I love the Navy collection!!

I've included a couple of the tees if only they'd just go on sale :)

You've gotta...

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth."

Cute Nautical Prints

Look at these adorable nautical prints...

I'm not sure where I found them online, but they were too cute not to share :)

Cute Cufflinks

I was online looking for a classy yet personalized gift for a friend, and I've often heard that cufflinks are great for such gifts. In fact, they're a great statement piece. Anyway, I got distracted and began searching for nautical-themed cufflinks.

Here are a few cute sets from; they're pricey but a great idea (now I just need to find them on the cheap!)
