Want to up your weekend plans? Football season is almost over and tax season is not in full swing yet so it's time to Empty Nesters Finally your weekend. Without further ado: 5. Enjoy afternoon tea at a fancy hotel. Boom. You get the ambiance of the hotel and you get to feel like you are on holiday for a couple of hours. Brad says to make sure tea comes with dessert.

Empty Nester Brad always wanted to be a Storm Trooper and fight in the galaxy. He calls me Yoda (he says it's a compliment). 2. Empty Nesters Finally loves to visit Disney World still. To us, it truly is the happiest place on earth. We recently went for the first time without Lane and Drew and were so surpris
Opposites attract or so its been said. Brad is a patient person. I knew that when I married him and I married him any way. On the other hand, I am not so patient.

As Empty Nesters you get to do a lot of things you never had time to do when you have kids in the nest (Sorry Lane and Drew - but its the truth). Traveling was always on our to do list but we never managed to get out of Florida when the kids were young. Hello Disney! I don't mean that the way it sounds cause we love Disney. We visited a lot especially when the kids were little. Luckily the boys enjoyed our trips to Orlando as much as us. In fact, not sure which of us liked Di
