So You’re Going to Disney World – Tips from a Pro

We are officially on a two month countdown to our trip to Disney World and I am so excited! I booked our fast passes this morning, have some new Disney shirts on their way from Amazon and now it’s just waiting for the fun to begin!

Disney World Planning Tips from a Pro!

This will be our 7th trip to Disney World and I’ve learned a lot during booking the last three trips. Some history, we used to always go to Orlando with my husband’s family in October and we’d usually spend one night and two day at Disney World. They are all Universal fans but Disney World was always my favorite for MANY reasons.

In 2015, we took a trip to Orlando with our friends and opted to go in December to experience Christmas. We always decided to go for six days and spend four days in the parks – double the amount of time we usually get! We had so much fun that we went again in 2016. This year my husband’s family postponed their trip to December and we are bringing the two newest members of our family who have never been!

Planning a Disney World trip can be overwhelming but here are my tips to help make it as smooth as possible! My tips are based on staying on Disney property which I would highly recommend!

3 Things I Don’t Love About Disney Land

This might not be a popular post so I’ll start by saying I do love Disney Land but there are some thing that really make me sad there! I’ve been fortunate to have visited Disney World several times and having been there, it kinda ruins some parts of Disney Land.

I'm a huge Disney fan but there's a few things I don't love about Disney Land...especially after visiting Disney World!

Last week my hubby and I took off to California for our anniversary trip and we kicked it off at Disney Land. We were there last in December 2013 and spent 2 days at both parks. This year we decided to just go for 1 day and only go to Disney Land – I couldn’t justify the extra $120 to park hop just for one day.

So without further ado, here are the things that I do not love about Disney Land… Read more

Magnolia Market Review from Someone Who Doesn’t Watch Fixer Upper

I’ve found that I get a bit of shock when I say I don’t watch Fixer Upper. Years ago, I watched HGTV for hours upon hours and loved shows like House Hunters. I had a few things spoil most of the shows for me (I won’t share so that I don’t spoil it for you too) so now the only thing I watch regularly is Flip or Flop. I had seen Fixer Upper one time before visiting Magnolia Market but that wasn’t enough for me to consider myself a true fan of Chip and Joanna’s.

Magnolia Market Review

My mom and I had planned a trip to visit my sister and her family in Dallas and when we planned it, we thought we’d spend most of the time spoiling my niece that we don’t get to see near enough. We booked the trip on a whim when we found flights for under $80 roundtrip (thank you Southwest) but we failed to realize that it was my niece’s first week of Kindergarten so she would be in school during the day.

My sister made the trip to Waco in March but didn’t end up going into the market because the line to get in went around the block so she asked if we’d be interested in going. My mom is a huge Fixer Upper fan so we thought it’d be a fun day trip for the 3 of us to take together. Although I had only watched the show once, I remembered really liking their style so I figured I would enjoy myself there.
