About livinginagrownupworld

**LIKES** Movies (especially horror movies), baking, cooking, going out to eat (food in general is a big like of mine), spending time with friends and family, working out, and of course…All things related to Walt Disney World...I have been there 15 times, and I love to read anything I can get my hands on about Disney…needless to say I have a lot of (otherwise useless) Disney information in my head. I enjoyed WDW so much as a child, and when I went back as an adult I found I enjoyed it so much more than I could have ever imagined, hence this blog...and THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG IS to convince those out there that Walt Disney World isn’t just for kids/families, its enjoyable for those of all ages, and there is something there for everyone (and I mean EVERYONE)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Everything’s Coming Up…Purple?

By now you’ve probably heard of the Purple Wall – and that it’s THE place to take a #Selfie in the Magic Kingdom – but I bet you didn’t know that this was just the beginning of Disney’s obsession with purple…

Sweet treats like cupcakes and churros, drinks, and merchandise (like sparkly purple Minnie ears!) are all the rage right now

If you’re headed to Disney soon, you’ll want to make sure you check out all the purple treats available Here

They say purple is the color of royalty – and it looks like Disney just got a whole lot more regal!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – A Random Act Of Kindness To Start Off 2018

As usual, my husband and son and I spent New Years celebrating with our friends in Virginia – and what fun it was!

Dance parties, movies, baking, visiting family – we did it all! But the best thing happened on the drive home. We stopped at a gas station in Pennsylvania to use the restroom, and on our way in (and out!) my son was eyeing a giant stuffed Tigger in the back of someone’s car

As my husband was buckling up our son to hit the road again, the very kind lady who was working at the gas station at the time came out and took the Tigger out of her car and gave him to John!

We didn’t know what to say – we were so overcome with happiness at the random kindness of this stranger – who clearly wanted nothing more than to see a little Disney-loving boy smile. And smile he did – Tigger has had quite the time since joining our family – watching movies, sharing toys, sleeping with John at night oh and of course plenty of cuddles!

To this woman who gave us her Tigger – we said it already but it bears repeating – Thank You from us all – you are a rarity in this world where it can sometimes be hard to find the good. Thank You for showing my son (and me!) that there is still good in the world ❤

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – A Little #FBF To Disney At Christmas Time

Five years ago today my husband and I boarded a plane to the Happiest Place On Earth – Disney World! We spent the week of Christmas there – and it was the most magical experience ever:

If you ever get the chance to spend Christmas at Walt Disney world – I highly recommend you TAKE that chance – it’s so beautiful and festive! The lines are long and the crowds are very high – so be prepared for that too (we were – we knew what we were getting ourselves into ha!) – but overall it’s one of the best trips we have ever had

Here’s hoping you have a Merry Christmas full of fun, laughter, love, and all things DISNEY of course!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Countdown To Christmas!

Christmas is just around the corner now – and I hope your days have been full of Santa visits, caroling, baking, and overall fun! I know mine have:

Of course – the holidays are also full of shopping, endless wrapping, more trips to the store as you forgot the baking soda, tantrums galore, the list goes on….but when I look at pictures like these of my son enjoying the season, I know it’s all worth it!

Just one more weekend until Christmas – I hope to spend it relaxing with my favorite men (husband/kid/dog) – how about you?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Castle At Christmas

If you haven’t experienced Walt Disney World during the Christmas season, you’re really missing out – and you should book a trip there ASAP! Sure, the crowds and lines are a bit long – but the beauty is worth it!

My husband and I were lucky enough to get to attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party a few years ago where they really pull out all the stops creating that Christmas magic!

I can only imagine how much work and planning goes into making this winter wonderland a reality – but it’s all worth it as it’s breathtaking in person – the lights, sights, sounds, and actual SNOW are truly amazing and something I think everyone should experience at least once in their lives!
