Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.





 ....to have thought that Natalie might have gotten an A on her test when I heard her screech from her room but it turns out, no, it's because Billie Eilish announced she'll have a documentary released on theaters and Apple TV in February. 


.....to hope Natalie does well when she goes back to in person school--she returns October 5th. Yup, masks are required and there's sanitizer everywhere. Plus Natalie is bringing her own. Am I nervous? A little. But she's one of those students who NEEDS in person school. She gets too distracted at home. 


....to know I'll miss my husband when he deploys. He's set to leave soon so it'll just be me with the kids. And normally when he goes, everything breaks. This is why my chocolate drawer has been well stocked.


.....to currently be reading Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner. It's about a plus-size Instagram influencer which I love. She has to go to the wedding of her ex best friend and, well...it probably won't go smoothly. 


....to love this inflatable "The Child" that I picked up from Walmart. Our Child who we named  Steve was in awe.

50's Prime Time Cafe At Hollywood Studios Review

I am all about classics, so I was always curious on eating at 50's Prime Time Cafe at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I knew the tables were set up like a 1950s living room, plus the dishes they served were classic. (Think fried chicken, pot roast..) 

To add to the fun, the waitresses and waiters admonish you for having elbows on the table or not finishing your meal. (You can opt out of this if it's not your thing though.)

You need a reservation, so I made sure to have one of those. 



Here is the inside:






Cool, huh? The TVs play shows from the 50s.


Here's the menu and you can also click here to see it:




I ended up with the Mom's Favorite Recipes, which meant I got the fried chicken, pot toast, and meatloaf:


I thought everything was delicious. My favorite was the fried chicken. The skin was perfection. 

Yes, we opted to have fun with our waitress. She admonished Tommy for not finishing all his food and told him to get his elbows off the table.






We were all told to finish our food and Tommy was the one who found it the most hilarious:





We decided to get the brownie for dessert. We got the ice cream on the side because my mom is lactose-free. It was amazing.



Steve had fun watching the old shows:



Oh, and guess what? I finished my food and got a Clean Plate sticker. But only because I put the rest of my food on Tommy's plate, mwa-haha. 




We would return! The food was scrumptious and we loved the atmosphere. The prices range from $15-$34.99 per adult. Again, a reservation is needed, and you can make that here. It's located in Hollywood Studios close by Gertie the dinosaur.


Have you ever eaten at 50's Prime Time Cafe?

Visiting The Battleship North Carolina

Our family loves history, so we've always enjoyed checking out battleships. I think it's important for kids to know about the heroes who allowed us to have our freedom today. We were in North Carolina over the summer and knew we wanted to stop off in Wilmington to check out the Battleship. 

Of course there's a pandemic going on, so there were changes. For example, you couldn't go below deck. You only could explore the top decks. But on the plus, the entrance fee was reduced because of this. 



It's a pretty area to walk around, so we did that first:






My husband is in the Air Force, so we had to get photos here:






The ship is pretty spectacular:



There were signs reminding us of what was open:




Yes, masks were required, and there was sanitizer stations around so we felt safe touching things. You were still allowed to do that.


Did you know in the 40s, the Battleship North Carolina was considered the world's greatest sea weapon? 



It was still neat exploring the upper decks.



There were social distancing reminders:




There were only a certain number of tickets sold, so we didn't see a lot of people.

I was telling Natalie here that a torpedo slammed into the hull in 1942 but it still survived. Pretty cool. 






The full tour is now available. We have done that one before a few years ago and enjoyed it. If you want to go, the Battleship North Carolina is open from 8-5 every day and there are still safety measures in place, like masks required and smaller groups. You can click here for more info. 




Have you ever been to the Battleship North Carolina? I know we'll be back one day.
