Wifey Travels

The past few months I’ve been traveling a bit more than usual. I like exploring new places and visiting ones that I already know and love. While I enjoy traveling with my family, most of my recent adventures have been without them. I’m fortunate to have my parents, my mother-in-law, my sister and most importantly Husband to take care of Wifey’s House while I’m gone.

Most recently the good folks at Walt Disney World invited me to spend some time with them to meet Princess Tiana, the star of the new Princess and the Frog movie and the first African-American Disney princess, during her debut at Magic Kingdom; and to explore some of the attractions and resorts on the property. I spent three magical days at Disney and will share several highlights with you over the next couple of weeks. What I didn’t realize was that Disney magic was taking place at my house, too.

Normally when I’m gone I’m happy to come back to the house still standing and everyone accounted for – and still in it. Seriously, I never worry while I’m gone – Husband is an excellent father – but let’s just say that I don’t always know what condition Wifey’s House might be in when I return. This trip, Tinker Bell must’ve come and spread some of her pixie dust on Husband because he knocked out his “honey-do" list and more. Not only was Wifey’s House clean, it was organized. While I was playing in the park, Husband, with a little help from my father, spent his vacation from work cleaning-out the garage, the junk-drawers in the kitchen, fixing the running toilet, putting a new fan in the bathroom, fixing the broken light fixtures in the house, putting together the new chair I won from Office Max and even cleaning the burnt smudge off the top of the stove. All this while taking care of my little pumpkins. Oh, he took them to get their real Halloween pumpkins, too.

What can I say, but the man is awesome.


My clean stove - trust me, you don't want to see the before pics.


My new bathroom fan.


My lovely new chair - thanks Office Max!


The princess at Cinderella's Castle.


OK, the REAL Princess Tiana making her Magic Kingdom debut.


My prince charming on vacation in September (he doesn't always stay home!)

I appreciate my wonderful Husband for renovating Wifey’s House while I was gone; my new family at Disney; and of course, the power of Disney magic.

How about you? What does your house look like when you come back from a trip? Do you have any secrets – or pixie dust – to share to get husbands to handle their “honey-do” lists? Moms on the go want to know …

My house is always a disaster if I go away with out my husband...and we don't have kids!! Sometimes he thinks he does a good job (which is cute) but I'm like SERIOUSLY?? lol oh well he is who he is right?
PS..I LOVE Disney!!! Great pictures!

I'm so jealous that you got to go to Disney. I've never even been there!

My problem is when my husband returns from trips. I always clean the place within an inch of its bricks when he goes away. Literally within ten minutes of his return he messes the place up. Drives me batty.

Your photo together is too cute! Love that he did that for you.. AWE--true love..:D

That is true love! I love that! My hubby didn't clean up while I was gone, but that's fine. He kept my kids in tip-top shape like an excellent daddy would! (Although I'm mad jealous about that stove - mine is in need of serious intervention...)

So jealous about Disney, I've never gone =(
Big kudos to your hubby for all his work, mine would definitely not have done anything. at all.

That was so sweet of the hubby! My hubby is not the best at keeping things organized while i'm gone, but he is good at cleaning the kitchen for me. Feels good doesnt it?
