My two favorite parks are Magic Kingdom and Epcot.

Magic Kingdom has the castle and so many amazing rides. But Epcot has yummy food, the World Showcase, and Soarin’ – which is my all-time favorite ride. I really can’t decide which one I like better! What’s your favorite Disney park?

The first stop on our first Magic Kingdom day? Taking a ton of pictures in front of the castle, of course! I booked us an early dining reservation for breakfast just so we could take some pictures without a million people in the background.

5 Ways this Mama is Focusing on Herself this Year (with Smile Brilliant)

By on January 10, 2019

This post was sponsored by Smile Brilliant but all opinions are my own!

For the last 6 years, my life has been centered around my kids. And as much as I love those little boogers, I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to focus more on myself this year. I really started to realize I needed to put some time into fulfilling my own wishes and desires when I decided to start this blog. I noticed that as my kids got older and more independent, I had more time that I needed to fill. That’s why I started blogging! It’s been so much fun creating content and really developing my brand. But this year I’m going to do even more to make sure that I feel like a person, and not just “Mama.”

Ready for a million pictures from Disney? I actually LOVE reading about other people’s Disney trips (looking at you Journey of Parenthood!) so I’m going to share all of my favorite pictures from our recent trip. Up first – our day at Hollywood Studios and our first day at Epcot!

The kids were festive and ready to go!

We loved our Magic Band skins from Magic Your Band! We got them for free for booking our vacation through DVCreqests.com. It was a great experience booking through them and we’ll totally use them again in the future!

Have you finished your Christmas shopping?

I’ve got a few things left to buy! We’re trying to keep it pretty simple around here as far as new toys go. We have SO many toys right now (most of which the kids don’t even play with) and I really don’t want to spend money on things this year. I’d rather save money for trips and experiences!

Santa is bringing Graham these car track tube things. He saw it on TV and has been asking for it for a few months. He’s also super into arts and crafts, so he’s getting this magic scene creator.

Simple and Easy Disney Princess Disney Bounding Ideas

When you go to Disney World, everywhere you turn you’ll see a little girl wearing a sweet princess dress and a crown or tiara. After all, who wouldn’t want to dress like a princess at Disney?! Not to destroy your dreams, but adults aren’t allowed to dress up in the parks. But there is a way to express your love of Disney through your clothing – Disney Bounding!

Disney Bounding is a subtler way of dressing up like a Disney character using colors and accessories inspired by the original outfits. It’s such a great way to make your Disney trip a little more fun. Especially if you’re planning on meeting that same character that day! I love looking for comfy, affordable pieces online for Disney Bounding outfits. Amazon, Target, and the Disney Store are always my first stop! Hot Topic usually carries great Disney accessories as well.

If you’re looking for some Disney Bounding inspiration, check out my simple and easy Disney Princess Disney Bounding ideas!
