Magical Monday: Another Disneyland Getaway


Do you know how hard it is to take hundreds of magical, really cute pictures from Disneyland and narrow it down to a handful for your blog? Very hard. I wanted to post these in the first few days of getting home from our trip, but I just barely announced that I am pregnant (yesterday) and I didn’t want to announce sooner, but I couldn’t post some pictures before you knew our big news because in some of these pictures its quite obvious that theres a baby in my belly. So now that you know Baby #2 is a cookin’ I can finally share some Disneyland pictures from our latest vacation to the happiest place on earth!

We were there just three days, but they were a very magical three days. As per usual, H was awesome. He was so good and well-behaved and obsessed with meeting characters and loved going on rides. He loved rides so much that when we’d get off rides he’d completely lose it. Cast Members would often approach him and be like, “Its ok! You’re off the ride now!” But little did they know he wasn’t sad because he hated the ride, he was sad because he hated getting off the ride! I think this time his favorite rides were Casey Jr, Small World, Nemo’s Undersea Voyage and the carousels.

Day One:


Eating at Cafe Orleans is a must for our family. Mainly because they serve pommes frites  and they are to die for. They’re seriously the most delicious thing you’ll ever eat.



My husband is the cutest. On our first day, he agreed to match with my two little sisters. Isn’t that sweet? I love the relationship that my sisters have with my husband. They’re all buddies and so cute and fun with each other.


Day Two:




We ate at Goofy’s Kitchen (in the Disneyland Hotel) on our second day and it was a blast. Goofy and his friends come around and visit you and there is a buffet with a lot of different foods to choose from. Its one I highly suggest.



Day Three:

I always insist on a 3D glasses picture when we’re in line at Toy Story Mania. H is still not so sure about the glasses so this picture was as good as we got.



See what I mean about the baby in my belly flaunting its stuff?



I love the Toy Story Mania line. We always seem to take a lot of pictures while waiting in it. Oh, and enjoy another peek at Baby #2. (I’m showing so fast)


We ate at Hungry Bear for lunch as per my sisters request. This is another one of our go-to’s that we’re always very pleased with. How cute are my sisters??


And we’ll end with our last family picture we took in the park at the Rivers of America.


Disneyland never disappoints. It never will. I’m so grateful to be able to go there so often and to be in a family that crazily obsesses over it with no shame. I’m currently in a state of deep depression because I miss it so badly, but I guess that just means we’ll have to go back that much sooner!

Until next time, Disneyland…




Park Day and Good Vibes

Sunshine is absolutely therapeutic, people. This great weather and H is obsessed with being outdoors (when he wants to go outside he goes to the door and starts knocking on it furiously) so for the past week we have pretty much lived outside. We pretty much only go inside for naps and dinner (lunch is outside a lot). It is the best. The. Best. I don’t understand why, but there is something so nice, relaxing and refreshing about being outside. It has given me the opportunity to get away from my phone and given me a clear mind. Its given me wonderful bonding time with my son and has just done something for my spirit. I feel better, I feel more confident and in control, I feel happier and more calm. Who knew something as simple as the weather could do this for me.





A Dip in the Pool

My family has a pool in their backyard and every year we anxiously look forward to the time of year when the pool opens and we get to anticipate the endless summer days floating in the pool and smothering ourselves in sunscreen (#palegirlproblems #estheticianproblems). I was so excited to take this picture because this same time last year we announced that H was a boy by debuting a boy swimming suit – the one he is wearing! Now he’s in that suit and he is CUTE! H was fun in the pool. I wasn’t sure how he’d like it, but he loves bath time so I was hoping he’d view the pool as a giant bath that he got to take with his family. He ended up being pretty indifferent towards the whole ordeal, but he didn’t hate it – so I’ll take it!


Warm weather is here!! I hope you have fun plans and get some good ol’ pool time in, too!



The Happiest Place on Earth


Last week our family of three went with my family to our home-away-from-home, our favorite place to visit, the place we love most and travel to most often, the best place in the whole entire world – Disneyland. As usual, it was magical, wonderful and has provided us with many more memories and pictures to marvel over. It sounds silly, but I really am so thankful to be a Disney Person. My mom is a huge fanatic and she’s passed the passion onto her children and husband and I plan on doing the exact same thing with my family. Wild Man has already fully embraced the Disney lifestyle and I can honestly say that H is loving Disney, too.


Truth be told, even now, a week+ after our magical getaway I am still on cloud nine. I get the Disneyland blues typically after coming home from a Disney trip because I miss it already, but I also feel full of butterflies because I get to think back on our time there (and eagerly, anxiously look forward to our next time there). And yes, I know how corny that all sounded but I meant every word of it.


I have decided I need more Disney on my blog posts. I’m going to be implementing weekly Disney posts, so keep an eye out for those. In the meantime, enjoy a few random shots from our vacation to the happiest place on earth.
