So many memories at this magical (and sometimes crazy) place!! I’ll always cherish these 6 years with my babies! I’ve loved having passes for so long because we’ve experienced so many things at every time of year and you can stop and see things that you don’t want to take the time for when you’re only visiting for a day. Since the holidays are such a fun time to visit @disneyland I’ve had some friends ask me advice about going so I thought I’d share some tips here so you can easily come back to it when you want to. Just make sure you wear some comfortable walking shoes cause you’ll be doing a lot of it. DISNEYLAND TIPS:. 1️⃣ buy tickets and passes ahead of time so you don’t have to wait in lines. And get the max pass for the day, it’s so worth it!. 2️⃣ download the @disneyland app so you can check wait time for rides, get fast passes, see shows, order food etc. and all your passes can stay on there. 3️⃣ get there the earliest you can. If you’re staying at a hotel there and can get in for the early magic hour that is so worth it. You’ll get all the big rides in fast. 4️⃣ make reservations for a character breakfast. It’s a great time to see the characters and not worry about it later. Bring an autograph book (makes an inexpensive souvenir for kids and they get so excited about it). 5️⃣ take advantage of stroller swap and get all the fast passes you can. The most popular rides will run out of them if you don’t get them early. Use the single rider line when you can. 6️⃣ bring a portable phone charger so your phone doesn’t die when you need your passes. But If you forget, they have stations throughout the park that sell chargers called fuel rods that you can swap out as you need it. 7️⃣ bring your own drinks and snacks. And the first aid station will give out bandaids and Advil if you need it. Wear all your Mickey gear and feel like a kid again 🐭✨🎠🎢🎡🍿
When it’s Friday and all you can think about is date night 🙌🏻 but then you realize you’re getting old when all you want to do is go to bed early 🤣. Swipe to see how you can easily sass this outfit up for a night out. And tell me what you’re looking forward to this weekend?? #sleepdeprivedmama #datenight
Doing all the festive things at the pumpkin patch today and this guy is here for it. He picked out his own little one and couldn’t get enough of the train or the pony rides while the other two just wanted to keep doing the bounce house slides and get their faces painted. And Adam just had to keep going back for more tickets 🤪. We love this time of year!
Wearing the best sweater to add to your closet on the blog today and it’s under $30!! If you could see the quality in person you wouldn’t believe the price. It goes with so many different things and I’m showing it with my favorites in these two outfits. Which one do you like better?? The comfy cords or silky skirt?
I love to freshen up my home with the start of a new season and one of the easiest ways to do that is with new pillows! One of my favorite shops is having their friends & family sale right now so it’s a perfect time to get a couple items that you’ve had your eye on and that will be the finishing touch to your room. I’ve always loved the pillow selection @serenaandlily and these embroidered ones are my favorite for anytime of the year. You can see more of my sale favorites on the blog and get 20% off with code ‘BEOURGUEST’ at checkout. #serenaandlilypartner
Accurate depiction of me as a mom - always needing more arms and trying to juggle it all 😆. That’s the thing about parenting, just when you feel like you’re getting one part down a new stage will come at you that causes you to figure it all out again. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the different personalities of my kids and how they react to things differently and what I can do to parent their needs. So I’m coming to you guys - how do you handle parenting the different personalities with your kids?? Do you discipline them differently??
We finally got some cool temps today so I added some fall touches around the house and these branches are my favorite find! The perfect light shade that’s realistic looking, hard to find right? But more importantly it’s almost cold enough to bust out our favorite chili recipe! We are suckers for a good chili and cornbread. What’s your favorite for cold rainy days??
Such a fun morning with my little sidekick at a beautiful event thrown together by @beinspiredpr to celebrate motherhood and discuss more about those things we are all trying to figure out everyday - like how to get more sleep and keep those babies fed 🤪. I love being surrounded by other amazing women going through motherhood together! #inspiredbymotherhood
I don’t always find the time to make a home cooked meal for my kids every night let alone pull together fresh bread, but when the weekends are a little slower and I can enjoy being in the kitchen then you can bet this new favorite artisan bread will be apart of it. I don’t know why I was afraid to try making it for so long, but I was intimidated until I was having people over for Sunday dinner and literally didn’t have anything else in my pantry to go with our dinner so I tried this for the first time and it turned out great 👌🏻. Anyone can whip it up, promise! It’s perfect for soup season which is my favorite! And all the tasty chili recipes. So go out on a limb and invite some friends over, make it a gathering and enjoy some good food together. Such a great way to fill your home this season 💛
I managed to get one room in the house clean today because the kids all got home from school to quickly get it messy again 🤪. That’s how it goes right?! I’m trying to figure out a schedule of getting everything done in the house throughout the week - like the laundry pile that still needs folding from a few days ago😆. So share all your tips!! Do you do everything on one cleaning day or have different days of the week to get things done?? P.S. i linked my console table and everything else with it here http://liketk.it/2EZvP #liketkit @liketoknow.it
Sharing some beach pics on the blog from when the heat wave was coming in hot and the beach felt cooler than in our house 😅. And also chatting about our weekend traditions. I think it’s so fun to have things to look forward to and something the kids will remember as well cause let’s be honest - pizza and movie night are sometimes what gets us through the week! What’s one of your weekly traditions??
Easy way to get those beach waves in your hair
“The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride; and really, isn’t it a wonderful ride? Enjoy it! Laugh about it! Sing about it!” -Gordon B. Hinkley A weekend full of beach time and games and bike rides and water fights and delicious food - Just to get us ready for the wild ride that begins Monday morning. Buckle up and enjoy 😊
To be honest with you, I’m actually a more shy person by nature. It’s easier for me to be private. To put yourself out there and create new ideas or dreams or pieces of your heart is vulnerable and every time I hear something negative I just want to hide away and not share anything. I’ve been hurt before by not feeling totally accepted for who I am so it takes me pushing past those negative thoughts, remembering my worth, and not comparing to others. I have value and so many ideas and talents that I love creating with. I want to be of value to you and your life and hope to inspire a little. So if it’s hard for you too putting yourself out there, then remember I see you and I feel you and I got you girl. We’re all in this together 👊🏻
Date night out or staying home cozied up with a good show?? Which one are you? I feel like we live for date nights now that our weeks are so crazy and we hardly see each other. But our babysitter canceled this weekend so we’re staying in. Adam’s already finished stranger things without me so we need all your show recommendations!! I’m so excited for This is Us to return!❤️
Kicking those feet up because it’s almost the long weekend!! Yahoo!🙌🏻 And also because I found the perfect white bootie to transition into fall. These ones are just the right shade of white and look great with jeans or dresses. I think you’ll wear them all season long 👌🏻@justfab #justfabpartner
