    Gift the Magic – A Disney Gift Guide

    Personally, I absolutely love having things that remind me of either my trips to Disney or Disney itself. However, I’m not a super big fan of things that absolutely scream DISNEY at you when you look at it. I much prefer a more subtle approach when showing my Disney love. With that in mind I thought I’d look for some more chill options on the shopDisney site to bring you a Disney gift guide for Christmas (or otherwise)! All of these options are available at shopDisney.com (except for a few Pandora items) and if you’re on the ball, I’ll assume will get to you in time for the holiday! Now, let’s look at some pretty.

    Going Vegetarian, Veg-Veg-itarian

    As of August 16th I stopped eating meat. I am SO pumped about that because this means it’s the most successful “diet” I’ve ever been on. I realize it’s not really a diet but it’s the best word I could come up with (¯\_(ツ)_/¯). It’s now been just over three months since I started this little journey! There were a few stumbling blocks with going vegetarian and discoveries along the way, so let’s talk about it below. 😊

    BTW – this is not intended to be judgy if you eat meat. Your body, your food, y’all!

    Our Disneyland Trip Part One

    So we went to Disneyland finally back in October 2015 oops and I’m so excited to share the photos with y’all! I took a lot, since we’d never been there, so I’ll be splitting up the photos into three posts as to not overwhelm. I’ll also be very brief with words, also to not overwhelm because believe me, I could definitely get wordy talking about this trip. Now, enough with the chatting, let’s get to the pictures (sorry for the letdown non-rhyme).

    Project365 September

    I did a thing. My happy *expletive* decided on September 1, 2017 that I was going to complete a Project365. But not to make things too easy, I’m going instant! I previously completed the #100HappyDays challenge but this is a whole other beast. I’ll be posting my photos every month as a look back on, well, the past month. You’ll get some photos and brief explanations for each day. I can’t say it’ll be fascinating, but I’m excited! Now click that Continue Reading link and away we go!

    Buying a House: Questions for Your Home Inspection

    I briefly touched on our home inspection in my last buying a house post, but thinking more about it I remember it being a very nerve-racking, sometimes confusing, experience. Trying to search the internet for common questions often resulted in some concerns that were not covered.  Just a warning, some of these questions may seem a bit “off beat” since we were looking at an older home. Depending on what kind of house you’re looking to buy you may have very different concerns and other questions that come up in your inspection. This is just a framework to get you started, so let’s get to it!

    Reviewing Erin Condren Contact Cards

    Similar to business cards, which is why I ordered them, Erin Condren Contact Cards provide some basic information in order to contact you. Wow! Surprising! The difference is that a lot of their premade templates are super, super cute. Since I was in need of some new cards (I had previously used VistaPrint) I decided to try them out. Now let’s find out more after the jump!

    2017-2018 Day Designer for Blue Sky Planner Review

    This is the beautiful 2017-2018 Day Designer for Blue Sky planner!

    Help me I’ve never been able to break my love of planners (don’t actually help me, I love them). Today we were at Target, just browsing as one does there, and lo and behold I found one heckle of an adorable planner. The Day Designer for Blue Sky planner is SO pretty and the paper is SO great that I might just switch to it full-time. Well, at least for a few weeks! Luckily it was Andrew that suggested buying to review so…technically it wasn’t my fault. Now, let’s take a look at this adorable planner!
