Too Many Eggs In One Basket

I have a confession...

As much as I LOVE to cook and experiment...I can't boil an egg to save my life. Or cook rice (without the assistance of a rice cooker). There. You now know what keeps me up at night (joke).

With Easter gone, I'm often left to figure out what to do with all the eggs. I mean, I love eggs...but only so much. I usually ask my sister to boil them for me because I always either under cook them, or over cook them...or tear them to shreds trying to peel them. I am the person that goes in the grocery store and buys the eggs that are already boiled and peeled because I suck lol.

And yes, I've tried every method on Pinterest (including the oven baked ones) and still I manage to not get it quite right. I'm OK with this mostly. Tonight, out of somewhere around 24 eggs, I only managed to mangle like 4...I ate one.

Anyways, on Easter I never made it around to dying the eggs so I left 18 home and still managed to bring home at least another dozen. I ate some for…

Disneyland!

In an amazing twist of fate, I was able to go visit one of the most magical places on Earth! I had never been to any Disney park! People always looked at me crazy when I said that, but now I can't say it anymore. We grew up poor. I'm not ashamed to admit that. It is the driving force behind me working to be able to do some of the things I wasn't able to do as a child, so there.

I. Did. Not. Take. My. Child. Why? Well, because I didn't want to buy a full price ticket to fly her to California and two because my sister and I needed some bonding time. Again, I had never been, so I wanted to see what I would be getting myself into when I take her later, to the Florida parks.

I. Had. A. Ball! It really is impossible to have a bad attitude. Even when you are being ran over by strollers and motorized wheelchairs and waiting in impossibly long lines. The atmosphere is remarkable! The weather was perfect!

What did I love?
The rides. Hyperspace Mountain (INSANE), Toy Story Mania …
