T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – A Little #FBF – And Why I Love WDW

My husband says to me the other day “can you believe it’s been almost 7 years since we got married?” – and I really can’t – the time has flown by in a blur of love, laughter, fun, and trips to DISNEY of course! We went to Walt Disney World together for the first time on our honeymoon – it was hot, humid, and super crowded – but it was one of the best times I have ever had!

So today’s TGIF post is brought to you by me and my husband’s first ever trip together to the Most Magical Place On Earth:

When people ask me “Why do you love Disney so much – what’s so great about it?” It’s hard to put into words – it’s the sights, the sounds, the smells, the atmosphere – the rides, the food – it’s just such an amazing place with something everyone will love – and it will make you feel like a kid again (something we can all use once in a while!)

Happy Flashback Friday – and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy 30th To My “Mickey”

30th-1

This week my husband turned 30 – and I got to thinking about our past (almost 11 years together!), and about just how grateful I am for him. He’s an amazing friend, husband, and dad – and I hope he knows just how much he means to me

30th-2

30th-3

30th-4 30th-5

He supports my love of Disney, and has traveled there with me many times – and we have so many fond memories of those trips

30th-6 30th-7

Here’s to millions more memories (Disney and otherwise!)

TGIF – and HAPPY 30th to the Mickey to my Minnie

I’m Goin’ To Disney World!

DSC00520

I am the first to admit that I am a lucky LUCKY woman – my husband is supportive, funny, reliable, and easy-going. He knows I tend to be more of the “take charge” type, and he lets me do that without question most of the time. But when it comes to vacation planning – he has made one thing clear – that he doesn’t exactly prefer going to Disney World EVERY TIME we go away. We have gone several times together, and had a blast, but his preferences definitely lean toward exploring/seeing new places, and beaches (and who can blame him, really?)

We’ve decided to go away together next fall, and when it came time to pick a destination, we really had to do some thinking to come up with a place we would BOTH really enjoy visiting. We finally came up with a great idea – a week in Florida, with a most of it spent in Tampa – taking trips to St. Petersburg for the beach, and checking out different local restaurants/breweries in the area, and then heading to Orlando for a few days, and staying overnight at DISNEY WORLD! He will get his beaches, new places, and beer and food to try, and I will get to visit the Happiest Place On Earth with my favorite guy – what could be better?

A few snapshots of our times together in Disney – what amazing memories we have made together!

Marriage – it’s all about compromise, isn’t it? I am just grateful that we were able to come up with a trip that gives us both things that we love, and I can’t WAIT to visit both old and new places with the love of my life!

…Ok, so is it next fall yet though? Seriously, I’m ready to go NOW! Well, at least it’s not too early to start planning…I feel a list or two coming on…#ListQueenStrikesAgain

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top (Adult) Disney Birthday Gifts

DSC00620
Disney isn’t just for kids, people. I have said it a million times, and I will say it a million times more – ADULTS CAN LOVE DISNEY WORLD TOO! There’s so much for everyone to love about all things Disney – and that includes at birthday time, too! There are Disney gifts out there for those of ALL ages, and I know there’s a few Disney items I am hoping to receive for my birthday this year, too! Check out my top Disney birthday gift picks for adults:
bdaygift 2

What woman wouldn’t want a Disney themed purse for their birthday? Disney has partnered with famous designers like Vera Bradley and Dooney & Bourke to create unique handbags that feature an assortment of Disney characters, themes, and events

A haunted mansion themed mug makes even Monday mornings more bearable. Oh – and it even says “Hurry Back” on the inside *swoon* – check out Disney Drinkware Here

Not only will this Disney luggage cheer you up while you deal with the monotony/annoyances of air travel, but it’s also super easy to spot as it comes out of baggage claim

Brighten up their office with some Disney
Bday gift 1

Ok truth be told – this post was slightly inspired by the fact that MY birthday is coming up – and I would love to receive any of these awesome gifts! As for this bracelet…I might have already ordered this for myself as an “early birthday present”…I couldn’t help it, it’s just the cutest, and will go with my other Disney Alex And Ani perfectly. What can I say – sometimes you just gotta treat yourself, am I right?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 5 Years Of Laughter & Love

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary! It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years already – the time seems like it has flown by! Today I want to reminisce a little about the time I’ve spent as half of a married couple – and of course by reminisce I mean check out some of our Disney memories!

TGIF Characters

HappyHourBig River

We spend our honeymoon in Walt Disney World – June is a hot, sticky, wet month in Orlando – but we still managed to have a lot of fun! It was the first time I had been back to Disney since I was a teenager – and it was my first time as an adult (without my parents!) and I loved being able to explore and re-visit things as an adult, and a new wife too!

XmasPartySign

TGIFride

AKL XMAS TREE

Disney World in December is amazing – we went mid-month, and also went to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – which was a ton of fun. The weather was nice and mild, and getting to see all the amazing Christmas décor everywhere put us in the Christmas spirit for sure!

IceCream

Ice cream on a hot afternoon at Disney? Yes, please. And thank you. And I will even share (because that’s how much I love him!)

Enjoyed the food, drinks, and view from Disney’s California Grill Restaurant atop the amazing Contemporary Resort

1900 2

Everyone enjoys meeting characters – and this was an especially awesome day – Christmas morning at 1900 Park Fare – amazing food, and awesome characters – and a great time making memories with my husband too!

It’s been 5 years of laughs, fights, hugs, tears, kisses, buying a house, getting a dog, having a kid – and I personally wouldn’t trade a minute of it for anything!

Here’s to a million more memories

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Cheers” To A Disney Happy Hour!

Walt Disney World is a GREAT place for adults to vacation, and one of the things that only the 21 and over crowd can enjoy there is the huge variety of alcoholic beverages available on menus all around the Disney “World”

Here are a few of our faves:

 HappyHour Rag

 The beer list at Raglan Road Irish Pub is long, and full of delicious options!

HappyHourBig River

Or head over to Big River Brewing Company – where the beer is brewed on site!

HappyHour Boma1

HappyhourBoma2

Boma has a great selection of whiskey drinks – a few of which my family and I have sampled and really enjoyed!

 

So cheers to Disney, Friday, and good times! TGIF!
