I had a meltdown the other day. It was my fault. I had accidentally knocked the lid of Matthew’s new smoker on the ground and knicked the dang thing up. He was frustrated but I felt AWFUL. It was one of those days when everything seemed to go wrong. Forgotten golf clothes for after school practice, dumped out baby food pouch in the car, a … Continue reading Hiding Under the Bed
Well I have a secret for you. The last school day is here and that means one final project for this mama. Unwisely and yet, purposely, I keep every single thing my kids bring home from school throughout the year. Into the bulging folder it goes as my husband asks if I can kindly make some more space in our filing cabinet. Who knows why but I … Continue reading Through My Loving Eyes
Today is the day! The official opening dedication ceremony for Pandora, Disney’s long awaited new world within Animal Kingdom. This past week we had a chance to get an early preview of the land. I will be extremely open in saying that my expectations were low. Clearly Disney has the capabilities to produce great products, but in term’s of how much I cared for the movie … Continue reading REVIEW: Pandora at Animal Kingdom
I’ve got to preface this with a note that my next update will be about the new Pandora land at Animal Kingdom and I’m super geeked about how the previews went. But more about that next time. Cause it’s about to get real. GET REAL. I think it’s fair to say that most people spend an above average amount of time planning their Disney trip. … Continue reading Planning the BEST DAY EVER at Magic Kingdom. For serious planners only!
Yeah! Summer vacation season is knocking on our door! Several years ago I made such a trip to Orlando and we got to a point where we said that we needed to take a day off and hit the beach. Orlando has tons to explore but we know families (and have been that family) where repeated days of itineraries can put everyone at their breaking point. So if you … Continue reading Just Do It – Best Beach Day Trips from Orlando
It seems every week I’m hearing of a new family or friends heading to Disney as summer break approaches so I’m going to be passing on some tips for you all over the next few posts! Let’s make it a Funday Monday and check out this AMAZING new shop at Disney Springs. It opened two weeks ago and I put this on my list of … Continue reading Disney’s Grown Up Dress Shop
If HappyGoSunny and frankly, motherhood, had a heroine, it most certainly would be Moana. Mulan was always my go to Disney princess. Strong willed and ready to fight for her family, she was always tearing it up bringing honor to us all. Yet Moana speaks to me so much more. I love her so much that I’ve openly said I’d be willing to play a … Continue reading Why Moana Is Perfection
Guest blogger today! Well semi-guest blogger. Matthew and I took a nighttime kayaking trip and about halfway through the excursion it was very obvious that I needed to do a split blog recap. To catch you up: For Matthew’s birthday I booked with BK Adventures requesting the nighttime bioluminescence tour. See illustration below. We traveled out to the Indian River along the Atlantic Coast for … Continue reading Matthew Guest Blogs: Moonlight Kayaking Adventures
Today marks a shift in the way I’ve looked at life in the last 10 years and I’m ok with that. Like all excited pregnant mamas, I purchased a girl (in addition to a boy) “going home” outfit when our first baby was due in May 2010. And with each passing pregnancy and subsequent boy baby, in the closet it hung, to the hospital it … Continue reading Goodbye to A Girl
Hi everyone! I’ve been fielding a lot of calls and messages from wonderful friends who are heading down to Florida for spring break and summer asking what they should check out. Disney is such a fantastic place but as anyone who has been there can tell you, while the parks are absolutely amazing they can also be exhausting!!! I’m a firm believer that if … Continue reading Is it summer yet? Checking out Disney’s Blizzard Beach!
