  • Packing for Disney World

    Packing for Disney World

    So you booked your flight to Florida, pre-purchased your park tickets, and mapped out your FastPasses*. Now comes the crucial question, what do you need to pack?! We thought we’d revisit what we’ve packed in the past to help guide you with your packing decisions. If it’s a baby-free trip, then you can definitely pack […]

  • Disney World sans Lil Bean

    Disney World sans Lil Bean

    Last summer, D realized we needed a little getaway. Deep down I thought so too, but I was more reluctant than D to leave Lil Bean for more than a day or two. I had many reasons, like, she’s still breastfeeding, she can’t go to sleep without me rocking her, and she’s not the greatest […]

  • Our 1st Family Vacation

    Our 1st Family Vacation

    It’s been almost 3 months since our first family vacation and I’m still smitten about it. Lil Bean got a chance to meet so many Disney characters. My parents and D’s parents got their first taste of Disney World. And D and I made some wonderful memories with our baby girl. It was magical and […]

  • Disney World with a Baby

    Disney World with a Baby

    The House of Mouse takes our money every even year. And we don’t mind. No, seriously. D and I love Disney World. We love Florida. We love vacations. So we budget well, and we make it happen. This year we went above our typical “you and me” getaway and included our daughter and our parents! […]

  • Disney World Tips

    Disney World Tips

    Let’s get down to business… to defeat Disney World!!! Hehehe. Call us freaks. Nerds. Geeks. Fans. Enthusiasts. Devotees. Aficionados. Whatever. We really enjoy our trips to Disney World and Disneyland over the years. I know I’ve shared this before but fun fact: I’ve pretty much been to a Disney park each year of my life. […]

  • Rewind to Our Unwind

    Rewind to Our Unwind

    Before even going to the Democratic National Convention in Philly this year, I knew D and I needed another vacation. For D, he hit a major professional roadblock. He was trying for a good portion of the year to move us back to California by seeking a promotion in one of the Marriott hotels in […]

  • D’s Dirty 30

    D’s Dirty 30

    I’ve know D since he was 9 years old. We both were goofy looking, with huge glasses, and awkward gaps in our mouths. Fast forward 21 years and D’s my partner in crime. We’ve also outgrown our goofy looks, huge glasses, and awkward gaps in our mouths! Thank goodness. Haha. For his 30th birthday, D […]

  • Bahama mama

    Bahama mama

    I wish I was sipping on one right now. Ah, a delicious Bahama mama. A few weeks ago I posted about our recent decision to visit the Bahamas in January. It was a bit spontaneous considering we didn’t officially know we were going until a few weeks prior to the trip. But again, that’s how […]

  • To travel is to live.

    To travel is to live.

    I renewed a promise to myself this year. That I was going to travel as much as possible. It’s not a new year’s resolution but a long-term commitment with my inner being that I need to keep. Far too often I’ve put my wanderlust aside for more adult-like things – bills, savings, investments, hours at […]

  • When you wish upon a star…

    When you wish upon a star…

    … your dreams come true. Well, maybe… I think I’ve already shared how much I love Disney. I love Disneyland. I love Disney World. I love Pixar movies. I simply love Disney. Something about that company – it makes you believe in fairy tales and happily ever after. It’s silly, but sometimes you need to […]
