Funtastic Walt Disney World

Disney World is the happiest place on earth! It is world-famous consists of four Theme parks ( Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park), two Water Parks (Disney Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney Blizzard Beach Water Park), with over 25 Resort Hotel properties.

In the picture is the beautiful Magic Kingdom Park! Me and the hubs went on our vacation on April 16, 2017. We purchased the hopper tickets for all the parks. We were scheduled to go on a cruise, so we did a day in Disney. I wish we could have had more time to fully enjoy the park. . We had a wonderful day of fun. I suggest to stay a week to fully enjoy all the parks to get your money’s worth. The fireworks were at  9 pm that night and the fireworks were so magical. Very spectacular- it is amazing and such a fabulous way to end the day.

Some info

– there are lots of shuttle buses to pick you up in the parking lot from your car to the front gate

– there were no long lines for purchasing tickets that morning at 9 am, only at security check lines

– I recommend buying the fast passes to not wait in long lines, you can bypass the lines for $60 each

– Download the Disney app for wait times and map for navigating around the park too.

Get your Disney package!

The food was good, the facilities were clean too. Staff was very nice and helpful with navigating with ease.

We had so much fun at Disney World and can’t wait to go back soon! I hope you enjoyed my information on the park.

Motorcycle Travels

Me and my husband are new owners of a motorcycle. A 1600 Yamaha Midnight. It may be a mid-life crisis LOL.

The verdict is still out on that! We are empty nesters now and need to fill the wind in our hair these days. We love to go on a spontaneous roadtrip.

I am enjoying being able to get away on it, just me and hubs together. No tags alongs. The tunes are blasting and riding the open road is so relaxing and refreshing. There is nothing like it. We try riding as much as we can, work permitting that is. Stay tuned for more motorcycle travels as summer gets here.


Oh, The Places We’ll Go

Hold my hand darling, the world awaits!

My bucket list consists of many big and small adventures along the way. The beaches, sand and sunsets with my hunny are my favorite things to do together. A beach girl at heart. It is easy to get so caught up in making a living, that you never make a life. I have to remind my husband of that a lot. We love to gaze at the sunsets together and travel as often as we can. Whether it be a last minute road trip, a Caribbean cruise or fly somewhere for vacation .

I am also on a journey to healthy living with my husband. We are committed to living healthy as we age together. I am on a path to share with you about learning to have self love to take care of yourself daily. It starts with you and loving yourself enough to make good choices for your everyday life. It is a life style, not the next big weight loss fad that is trending, but an everyday healthy lifestyle.

Join me on my journey to living my bucket list adventures!

Your Friend, Julia Lansdell

Shake up your summer

High Blood Pressure (hypertension)

I had high blood pressure in January 2019 while I was at my appointment to donate blood at my local blood bank. It showed 140/ 105. Say what? So, I left the facility and went to my general practitioner to get it checked out. Yep, the nurse checked it and it was high again. So, I was diagnosed with High Blood Pressure. I was put on medicine to take everyday. Heart disease does run in my family. My dad passed away at the young age of 68 with it on October 29, 2018. He had a stent put in his heart and had 2 triple bi-pass surgeries. I decided that this was no disease to play around with. I would get educated and start on a healthy living journey to take care of myself and my body. I have started exercising everyday and trying to eat right too.

My health is now priority. I check my blood pressure daily and take my pill at the same time everyday. Thankful, that I was able to get diagnosed and treat it before something happened to me. Please see the chart below to see where your blood pressure is at…

Be prepared on the go!

What To Know Before You Go On Your Caribbean Cruise

A cruise to the Bahamas had been on my bucket list for awhile. So, on April 16, 2017, me and my hubs went on the Carnival Liberty Cruise Ship for the first time on our much needed vacation .

The room we purchased was one with a balcony that we was recommended by a friend. It was so worth it to upgrade to a balcony for an extra $300. I highly recommend it too. You have the balcony for privacy to sit to view the beautiful blue ocean in peace and quiet and to take it all in. It was so relaxing and just being there with my husband for some needed relaxation is just what we needed to escape life for a couple of days together. There no wifi out in the middle of the ocean unless you purchase a international wifi package between the United States waters and the Bahamas. It was so nice to us to unplug from the cellphones.

Some info

  • wifi was $5 for the package
  • soda packages called bottomless bubbles can be purchased at the Lobby, Casino, and Pool Bars for $8.50 per day and kids are $5.95 a day
  • No plastic bottles allowed, only cans are allowed onboard
  • Spas & Hair Salons are additional packages that can be purchased
  • Fitness classes are additional packages
  • Gift shops are onboard to shop til you drop

We ported at Bahamas the next morning. There are many beaches to visit, and things to do and visit too, but we stayed downtown for the day. We had a fun day off the ship with a carriage ride around downtown of Nassau was perfect for sight seeing with my hubs. We bought my 25th year anniversary ring at the International Diamond store there. It’s a souvenir that I will cherish forever. At the Hard Rock Cafe, we ate lunch. It was time to board the Liberty ship again, we spent all day in downtown area.

Dinner time on the ship has so many choices to choose from from a burger stand, to a buffet line for fine dining. We ended up trying all them before we left the ship.

There is a big theatre screen on the upper deck, it was relaxing to watch a movie at night and to be able to stare up at the stars together too. So romantic LOL. We loved it.

We shopped on board in the gift shops, went to an 80’s concert. We are 80’s kids that we grew up that era, so we loved it. Overall the cruise is just what we needed and encourage anyone to cruise once and see if it’s for you. Some do get sea sick, so pack some dramamine, just in case you need it. The ship did sway some and we had to adjust to it. Thankfully, we didn’t get sea sick.

It was an awesome cruise! I am now addicted to cruising. 🛳❤️

Self care is essential for healthy living

I am participating in an International project called, I love me! It is about loving yourself, all of your flaws. Self care is essential to good health. You are unique and only one of you. God didn’t create us be like everyone else, but to stand out and just be yourself. It has taken me years to have confidence in myself. My scars are a part of who I am, from almost dying from my childhood chicken pox at the age of 9. God had a plan for my life that day. Every wrinkle that I have earned too, This gray hair that I keep colored too, LOL. You just be YOU! Everyone is special in their own unique way.

From being bullied at school from my scars on my face from my child sickness, had to learn to live with being rejected and talked about because I looked different from everyone. I did have multiple surgeries during my teen age years to get my face and scars flattened. I learned through it all that God is the only one that I have to worry about. He made me to stand out in a world that says you must be perfect. Be your own amazing self!
