Hello friends!! This is the last post for the month of love! And I thought how fun to do what I love about Disneyland! First of all it’s already almost March like, wth! Spring is coming in strong and I’m excited for some spring fashion! I’ll be doing a spring post next week! Some fashion must! Fall and spring have always been my favorite! So I’m super pumped!
So let’s get started with my Disney love! First I want to talk about annual passes. We were pass holders before, when breaker was 2, but we hardly went. So we had taken some time away. We decided to get them again when Breaker turned 6, he’s so into Disney. So far we have loved having our passes. They are pricy, but if you plan to visit enough in a year they are so worth it! I recommend the deluxe passes. They are not as pricy as the others and they have good days to go. Not so many block out dates. The only thing is if you like summer days don’t get this one they are blocked almost all summer. Go with what I have the signature. The reason I have signature and not deluxe like my hubby and breaker is for the parking. Signature includes parking. We go 2-3 times a month and at $25 a day parking it made more sense. I’m also not blocked a lot. So if you don’t mind paying more go with that one. Totally worth it if you plan to go a lot.
Food ok, we are still exploring food! But some of my must haves are the clam chowder in bread bowl. They have this in New Orleans square and the pier at DCA. It’s a fav! I love the red cart in Main Street for a good old corn dog, so yummy! Jolly holiday has the best treats if you have a sweet tooth. And let’s not forget about the churros. You can’t go wrong. And by far my favorite treat is the beignets in New Orleans square too! If you need a drink head over to DCA for a yummy drink at lamplight lounge. We love following magic journeys on YouTube and Instagram for all the latest yummy foods at Disneyland!
Fashion you all know I love some cute clothes! And we all know most love the great photo opportunities at Disneyland! So we all need to look cute, but I mean comfort is key! I usually go with my most comfy jeans especially when I know I want photos. If it’s a lazy day going I opt for sweats or leggings. Hot days I go with my comfy jean shorts. I love to go on theme. Who doesn’t love to wear a Disney shirt to go along with the cute ears! My go to places are H&M and zara for my Disney needs! They always have the cutest tees and you can’t go wrong with some jeans and tee! For Breaker I usually get his shirts from H&M or kids gap. I always wear converse or my comfy adidas. So try to stick to a shoe you know is great for walking. Good thing sneakers are so on trend!
So much more but I’ll do a more foodie one soon with pictures! Because low key we go to eat!
till next post!
Hello friends! Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine’s Day! We actually asked the boys what they wanted and they picked shake shack, and that was perfect! I love that place. So our valentines was a family night out. This month I wanted to stick to things I love! So to continue with that I wanted to share the products and items I’m loving right now. Most I’ve been using for a long time.
First is for sure skin care favorites! I finally have a skin regimen that I see my skin loves. I also think washing your face every night and using an spf is important. I’ve talked about summer Fridays before and I’m talking about them now! They just came out with a gel cleanser. I’ve always been more sensitive to face washes. So when I heard they were coming out with a gel cleanser,I had to have it. I’ve only been using it for a little over a week now. And my first impression is it’s not drying. The worst is when you use a face wash and your face feels instantly dry. Not this one, it cleanses really well and so far so good. My absolute favorite is the pumpkin over time mask. This I use about 2 times a week. I’ve been using the cc me serum as well and I like it, haven’t seen much of a difference in my dark spots beside them not getting darker. I have noticed my pores are less noticeable which is a plus! I do love the jet lag mask, it became my night cream and under eye cream and it’s great! If you have all of these I promise your skin will love you.
Accessories! I love some Accessories, at the moment I’m all about a gold loop. And I actually love the packs from H&M,they are so fun and they don’t hurt my ears. I’m also loving headbands right now, but I don’t like when they are tight and uncomfortable, the ones from HM are so cute, inexpensive and they don’t hurt. Check them out!
Vitamins!! I’m about to turn 41 soon and I started taking a multi vitamin. I’m loving these and the hubby even takes the one for men! Check them out!
Lastly would be my favorite nail polish that I take every time I get a pedicure. I normally just get white on my toes, I know kinda boring but it just looks good with everything! This one is my absolute favorite and last a long time. During winter I can get away with a pedi once a month. Try it!
So that’s it, my product love post! Let me know if you’ve tried any. Hope you liked this post, till next time!
Happy Wednesday my friends! Hope you all are having a wonderful week. I’m doing well, we had a nice family getaway to Big Bear this past weekend. Really no snow, but we got lucky on the day we left. It snowed very lightly so Breaker got to see that for the first time. He thought the snow at Disneyland was real so him seeing real snow made my heart smile.
Talking about hearts! Who is ready for Valentine’s Day?! Do you make a big day of it, do you keep it casual, fancy or is it a stay in cozy kinda night? We wanted to go out since it’s on a Friday, but we are kinda pooped from big bear and getting back to weekday life. So we are leaving plans in the air. I’m cool with ordering in with a drink or two. But getting dressed up is so fun!
Talking dressing up, if you have plans set in stone! Do you have your outfit picked? Well if not I’ve put together some INSPO for you! I love a pop of pink for Valentine’s Day! Most go with red, which is beautiful. But pink is so girly! You can even mix both and that looks so chic! If I was going out I’d wear some leather faux pants, a bodysuit and with a pop of pink on my feet! Edgy with a little girly twist! But check out what I found and hopefully you can get some INSPO for your sweetheart night! Hope you all have a beautiful Valentine’s Day! Till next post!
Hello friends Happy February! The month of love! Who all still goes out for Valentine’s Day? I haven’t in years but I think me and the hubby are going to this year, so cool it is on a Friday.
Today’s post since it’s the month of love, I thought how fitting is it to dedicate my first post to my first born. He is the reason my heart grew bigger.
My David, he just had his 16th birthday. Imagine 16 years as a mom, I remember the day I went into labor with him. He was my little big guy, a whole 6lbs 11oz but long, I knew he was going to be big, he had the biggest hands and his feet were too big for his newborn pajama. I had to always cut the bottoms. He was my gentle giant. And now he’s 16 a young man that has this beautiful heart. He’s so caring and loving with everyone. I know he has a bright future. But this year he will hopefully get his license and maybe get a summer job, lol! No but really He has his written text very soon. It’s crazy!
I’m so proud of him. And I can’t wait to see him grow more as a person. He has brought so much joy to my heart for 16 years. So Happy sweet 16 my baby.
Moms out there that might be worried about having a second baby because you feel you can’t love anyone as much as you do your first, don’t be scared. Your heart is capable of amazing things. You love them just as much and your heart grows fonder every year they grow. The heart is an amazing thing and gets bigger with the more people we allow in.
Till next post!
Hello my friends!! Ok so I’ve kept my theme of January devoted to the new year and goals. This is my last post for January so I wanted to end it on a simple note.
Do not spend your year beating yourself up on trying to get through all the goals. I honestly don’t think goals have to take over your life. Life is way too short for you to stress over a goal you made for yourself. Enjoy life that’s important. A simple goal doesn’t mean less than a big goal. Who’s to say your simple goal isn’t a big deal to you. Don’t let anyone make you feel like your goals are not big enough.
Goals are great to have they keep you in line. But don’t feel discouraged because others are hitting their goals and you aren’t. You are on your own path, don’t worry what path others are on. You make your path on your own. So no rush and just remember to enjoy everyday. We are absolutely never promised the next.
So like I said before, no goal is too small, and don’t ever feel a goal is too big. You have the ability to make it happen. With that you have 336 days as of today to work on what you have to work on. Don’t follow someone else’s goals. Focus on you and what makes you happy.
My number one goal is family, spend more time with them, make more memories and just enjoy the time we have with them. And day 29 of that I’m on the right path. Let’s all cheer each other on. Till next post.
Hello my friends! Ok so I’m using January as a stepping stone into the new year! So why not share my steps with you! I don’t like to start off so crazy like giving myself all these rules and goals! Like for real it’s just torture to yourself! I like to start off with manageable goals! And once I start to see myself achieving these manageable goals, I add more! It’s less disappointing at the end.
So something I can already check off my list and let me tell you it’s the most important, is making our dr appointments and dental appointments. Health is the most important in my book! I made sure to schedule all appts so I know we are set and healthy! Some of us will put these off and let me tell you, if you have yearly goals that’s great! But nothing is more important than health. If you are not healthy, how are you going to accomplish anything? So make those appointments!
Dentist! Most of us hate them lol! Well not hate just scared of them. But oral care is just as important as physical. So get it over with and book those dental appointments! Believe me I have a huge phobia with the dentist but hell it feels good to get those choppers cleaned! So book your appointment!
Thats it! Getting those done for my family take a lot of stress off me in the beginning of the year! So we can proceed with our own individual goals and just be happy! Till next post!
Hello friends! Being we are mid January I’m still in the New Years mind set. So why not dedicate my January blog post to that! I didn’t do a vision board this year. I just made a List of things I would like to get done this year. And to be honest As far as career goals, I’m so lost. So this year I wanted to work on my time management and my family. With a few things here and there.
So time management can be everyone’s worst enemy. I think we all have said there’s just not enough time to do everything, Nope! But we don’t have to do everything in one day!
Being a stay at home mom,I felt like my days were so long and I was so tired from the day. I have 2 kids and both in school. So mornings are as busy as can be trying to get everyone up and ready for school and hubby out the door for work. Once everyone was gone I felt like I had to keep busy like cleaning, washing, reorganizing you name it I did it. I felt guilty sitting down and also felt that it was my job to keep busy all day at home. And felt myself so tired and frustrated by the end of the day! So I decided this year, I would manage my time better and not feel guilty to sit or feel bad to make plans for myself during the day.
So I made rules to make my days better! Here they are! We go to target for daily stuff on Saturdays, unless it’s for my pleasure that would be my weekly outing,lol! Super market shopping on Sunday’s! Honestly doing that makes my week so much easier. I have a day I wash all day, I fold it right away because I swear it’s easier then piling and piling! I make dinners that last about 2 days or more so I don’t feel like I’m in the kitchen everyday all day! Little changes like that have already made such a difference. I also promised myself to get dressed like I mean real clothes not workout clothes lol! Managing your time will make life so much easier. I don’t like to rush and I’m very organized. I honestly feel managing time and being organized is going to make your year much smoother.
A few tips to help, whether you’re a working mom or stay at home mom, get all your clothes ready the night before. Even my teenager does this for himself and saves him about 10 minutes in the morning. I usually clean my kitchen good at night and take out things I need to make it easier for lunches. That saves another 10-15 min. Just by doing those 2 things you are saving yourself almost 30 minutes! That’s how I see my day! Minor changes will make your time more manageable. And don’t think everything needs to be done in one day! Enjoy life! That’s what I’m doing! Till next post!
