We got in on Sunday and made it to Hollywood Studios, it was a little rainy but that wasn’t going to stop us! Timothy is always amazed how big the trees are.

 

20151122_151447.jpg

Always posing!

 

20151122_161020.jpg

Everywhere we went Timothy pointed out all his site word and tried sounding out words to read.

 

20151122_161227.jpg20151122_161244.jpg20151122_164001.jpg

Everyone is so excited about all the Star Wars stuff coming to Hollywood studios!

First time meeting Santa Goofy, Timothy told Santa Goofy everything he wanted for Christmas!

 

20151122_184809.jpg

Then it was off to the Osborne Family lights! I still cant believe that this is the last year, this has been a tradition since 2006 for Ryan and I. I did shed a tear or 100!  I am hoping that maybe we can make it there one more time before they take it down.

It didn’t take long for this guy to fall fast asleep. We still have the stroller for Disney (even though he is getting too big for it) But its better then having to carry this guy around!

20151122_190331.jpg

I love a family selfie!

Disney Recap

Disney Recap November 2014

We always have the best time at Disney World! Every November we make sure to go for a week for our Anniversary and we haven’t missed one yet! Timothy has been going to Disney since he was 4 months old and every time it’s so different in such a special way! He has finally hit 42 inches which means he can basically go on most rides, expect for the big roller coaster (space mountain, Everest, Rock n Roller coaster,¬†etc…)¬† so he had a ball! I shared a ton of pics on my Facebook page and IG account but I figured I would do a picture dump here too. All the pics I took this year were just from my phone, so some are not as great as they could be. Enjoy! ūüėČ

20141102_121257-1

We made it! The look on Timothy’s face is so priceless when he sees this sign!

 

20141102_122551

We stayed at the Art of Animation, I love this hotel, I think it’s so great for little ones! We have stayed in the Little Mermaid and Lion Kings rooms before so we knew it would be great, Timothy says next time he wants to stay in the Nemo rooms!

20141102_140648

Always so lucky to have my mom with us for the first couple of days of our trip, Timothy has the most fun with her!

The Elephant Graveyard was his favorite thing!

P.S. Grandma is not following directions NO CLIMBING!

We unpacked and were off to the Magic Kingdom!

Only Disney transportation of course.

20141102_151816

First stop Timothy’s favorite ride Winnie the Pooh!

More pics at the hotel

20141103_093841

Then the next day we were off to the Animal Kingdom

20141103_101304

The Lion King show is one of my favorite shows!

20141103_110810

He was not so impressed with the Safari ride HAHA

20141103_115226

My mom took Timothy to play in Dino Land so Ryan and I could ride Everest, I always think I can ride it and I always feel so yucky after it

When Timothy finally woke up we were just in time to see a parade and hang with one of my besties who was also at Disney!

Here is a cute pic of the sleeping babies and the Grandmas!

20141103_145815-1

Always good to see Mickey, by the way today is Mickeys Bday!

Happy Birthday Mickey!

Mickey was nice enough to do the Hot Dog dance with Timothy

20141103_16185520141103_161828

The weather was picture perfect

  20141103_163002

We always spend a little time with the ducks

20141103_163113

Timothy was funny this trip he would climb or sit on something and say take my picture,

I think it was because he really wanted to climb on stuff he wasn’t supposed to and he knew that was the only way he would get away with it haha

20141103_174325(0)

2014-11-10 14.34.48

This was Timothy first time on the teacups, and he had the best time, Grandma and I sat that one out

20141103_193659 IMG_20141103_231526

we met back up with Jules and watch the night parade

20141103_202141

Then the fireworks….
20141103_204631

20141103_210241 20141103_210610 20141103_211234

The next day we were off to Hollywood Studios

 20141104_093507

20141104_101124

Timothy was super excited to get some presents from Mrs Jules

20141104_101656

This was also the first time to see all the frozen things at Hollywood studios and they did not disappoint

20141104_103958 20141104_104748(0) 20141104_104849 20141104_105700 2014-11-08 18.14.12

Then we said Goodbye to Mrs Jules and her mom, grandma and baby Addalyn and we were off to the Frozen show, the only bummer was we sat on the side and next time I will try my hardest to sit in the middle section

20141104_112259 20141104_120213(0) 20141104_120329(0)

Timothy may or may not have climbed under the ropes for these next two pictures ūüėČ

20141104_120948(0) 20141104_120948(0)closeup

Again this was another one of those let me climb and take my pictures moments

20141104_131445

Since we always go in November we try really hard to not buy Timothy a bunch of stuff because it’s so close to Christmas and honestly he has too much already BUT with Big Hero 6 coming out he looked at this Baymax everywhere we went so I caved and bought it for him

20141104_135254

Next we were the first family for the Disney Junior show, so Timothy got to knock and say the MAGIC words

20141104_140756 20141104_140901 20141104_143649 20141104_143952 20141104_144102(0) 20141104_144314

We ended up back at the hotel and grandma had to go back home for work and we just relaxed and ordered pizza to the room!

Next day was Epcot

20141105_114507

20141105_114928 20141105_114956

Timothy visiting all this friends

20141105_124505 20141105_124739 20141105_124958

So this was our day at Epcot and I wish I had taken pics of all the food we ate at the food and wine festival because it was delicious and we ate at so many countries.

Ummm so we were stopped to eat some of the yummy food and I said look how cute Timothy is to Ryan, take his picture and this was what he took! haha

20141105_134322

Another first for Timothy was the Fast Track and we got to make our own car and this is what Timothy came up with all by himself!

20141105_143313(0) 20141105_150008

A stop in the United Kingdom to see Winnie the Pooh and Tigger in Christopher Robins Bedroom

20141105_152716 20141105_15283520141105_165421

Stopped at the international gateway and found Arial with no line, so we stopped to have her sign the book!

20141105_161109 20141105_161120(0)

Oh, Canada!

  20141105_170325 20141105_170340 20141105_170735 20141105_171008

This was at the end of the day, I was so tired and full from all the amazing food, that we didn’t stay for fireworks but before we left Timothy got out the rest of his energy

20141105_172402

So happy that the next morning the Magic Kingdom had started Christmas decorating

20141106_105955

I was so¬†curious to see what the garland would look like at Disney because it goes across Main Street USA, but I¬†knew that would not be possible with a¬†fire breathing dragon that came down the street everyday¬†at 3 O’clock.

Ummm its going to take some getting use too

20141106_110003

Some fun pics of our adventures

First real rollercoaster on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride!

PicMonkey Collage

and I actually put makeup on this day and was super proud of myself

20141106_133424

20141106_142946 20141106_162208

Back to the hotel for some pool fun, but some little girl puked in the pool so everybody out and to the Splashground we go! (it happens)

   20141106_173253

20141106_175456 20141106_181218 20141106_181715

Couldn’t believe it was already Friday but we were going back to Hollywood Studios for my all time favorite thing ever at Disney World

The Osborne Lights

20141107_143207 20141107_144822 20141107_160232

So fun fact in the Muppet Vision 3D theater when you first walk in there is a sign that says “Back in five minutes, key under the mat” and there really is a key under the mat, it’s so fun to show Timothy all these kind of things since he is starting to understand it and I love all the hidden little things everywhere!

20141107_162003-1

Honey I shrunk the kids playground

20141107_164805(0) 20141107_165011 20141107_165359

Stopped at the Christmas shop to pick up something for Timothy’s teacher and he was so super cute picking out the perfect ornament for her, he knows she likes Peter Pan, which we all know is his fav too, so watching him decide on the right one was too cute!

20141107_170739 20141107_171313 20141107_171655 20141107_171656

So as you can see Timothy is really good (most of the time) I was able to catch a not so good moment when he only wanted a pic with Lightening McQueen and wanted Mater to move, which we all know this was not going to happen

20141107_174204

10 minutes later he was happy again with his very first hot chocolate ever, but he still wasn’t quite sure

20141107_174945

So of my favorite moments from the trip was waiting the lights to start and watching Timothy’s face as it begin to snow, it was the most magical moment for me

20141107_180755

This was one of the best Disney trips yet!

Until next time

See ya real soon….

Summer Fun so far…

Summer Fun

PART ONE

June was such a busy month for us, it started at Disney and lots of parties and fathers day was also thrown in there as well. It was a lot of work but everything came out perfect!

The beginning of he month started at Disney World just for a night, the brand new Snow White ride opened and we had been so excited to ride it. We stayed at the All Star sports, we have stayed at more then half of the hotel at the Walt Disney World Resort, if you are deciding to stay at a value resort, I would say The Art of Animation (mermaid rooms) and the Sports are the best ones in my opinion.

Ryan and Timothy running the field

Timothy super ready to go to the Magic Kingdom

20140601_095442

One of Timothy’s favorite rides is the bus ride

20140601_100826

So I really wanted this pic of him being all excited, truth is he was super scared up there

20140601_102939

The Mine ride was the most amazing ride, we had to wait about 50 minutes which was so nice, I was expecting 4 hours or something crazy, I wish Ryan and  I would have taken Timothy because it was not a super fast roller coaster and it was super smooth, he would have really loved it. It will be one of the first rides we go on in the fall when we start going back again (we never go to Disney in the summer because of the heat and the crowds)

20140601_111219

Every detail was perfect!

20140601_111616

20140601_115745

20140601_131201

20140601_133712

Timothy got to be Chip and Belle had a little crush on him!

20140601_135023

20140601_135233

He held on for about a 3 minutes, hehe

20140601_135249(0)

So it was raining in the afternoon so the new festival of fantasy parade was a no go, which was a bummer because my mom had not seen it, so we got to see the rainy day parade, don’t blink you will miss it!!!!! ūüėČ

20140601_151250

Here comes the parade

20140601_151319(0)

Then the next weekend was my cousin Amanda’s Bridal Shower. My mom and I worked really hard to make it super special for her. We knew we were also going to be throwing a baby shower at the end of the month so we though really hard about things we could do to make stuff that we could use for both, since both showers were a white and pink theme. For my cousins shower we decided to use the hot pink, which is the color of her bridesmaid dresses.

wpid-20140603_163713.jpg

I felt so bad because this is what my moms house looked like for weeks! Just stuff everywhere!

wpid-20140604_154509.jpg

We started actually putting stuff up on the Tuesday before the shower

wpid-20140604_161804.jpg

I used the Cricut so much, I loved that I could make everything so it would be more personal!

wpid-20140604_163554.jpg

wpid-20140604_170158.jpg

This was something that we saw on pinterest an decided it would be the present table for both showers, I have to say if anyone wants to make this, its extremely time consuming and make sure you have your Michaels or Joanns coupons because it was a ton of tulle, a lot more expensive then we though it was going to be to make it.

wpid-20140603_145647.jpg

Bling!

wpid-20140605_160151.jpg

Dressing up a plain vase from Michaels with some sticker rhinestones, really gave it a nice touch

wpid-20140606_181241.jpg

wpid-20140606_183405.jpg

My mom is a perfectionist!

wpid-20140607_091642.jpg

wpid-20140606_181818.jpg

This was for a memory game we played and any chance I get I bring out Tampa Bay’s best Wedding of 2006 (cause my wedding was in it and I planned it all by myself!!!!)

We also played a purse raid game that was hilarious!

wpid-20140606_181837.jpg

Wish I would have gotten more pics of the actually shower but I was busy running around

wpid-20140607_120600.jpg

Found this idea on Pinterest  and it was a great idea to use for well wishes, it turned out so well we did a baby shower version, when the shower was over I glued all the balloons on so Amanda was able to take it home that day

wpid-img_20140607_170244.jpg

wpid-20140607_091924.jpg

Before the shower started (again wish I would have taken a pic of all the presents )

wpid-20140607_092027.jpg

These were the gifts for the winners of the games, I wanted everything to match and it ended up making a great centerpiece

wpid-20140607_092050.jpg

I shot this pic in the morning of the shower and light was coming in perfect, my favorite picture!

 Close up of the balloon board

wpid-20140607_135611.jpg

wpid-20140607_104513.jpg

Even though it was a lot of work with a lot of little details it was worth it and I think Amanda enjoyed it a lot

The next weekend was Fathers Day, it was s nice to just spend time with Ryan and Timothy

wpid-20140615_112911.jpg

We decide that we wanted to take Timothy to mini gulf for the first time and

wpid-20140615_113249.jpg

Timothy got to feed the alligators

wpid-20140615_113754.jpg

One of my BFF’s came to visit me this year and it was so exciting because she had never met Timothy before, I would have not traded that experience for anything, I love and miss her so much. Keeping my fingers crossed that her husband get orders to come to Florida in the next couple of years! We had a mini vacation together at a Disney Hotel while they stayed and we had a blast.

They really bonded over their coffee talk.

FOUR

Earlier this year the company I worked for was sold and a lot of people lost their jobs, when I found out what was happening I went into panic mode, I had no idea what was going to happened to us without the second income coming in. I had always wanted to become a stay at home mom but I didn’t think we were¬†ready for it at all, I thought I¬†it would¬†be¬†when Timothy started school so I could be around all the time for him. Well I put on a brave face and said well I have always wanted to¬† be at home, let’s do it, even though I was a huge mess on the inside. I have to say I had a gloomy couple of months trying to figure out what my plans were going to be but I got through it and defiantly came out better on the other side.

We have days like this…

 69042_10201052708146157_2022434320_n

and days like this…

62880_10201091826404089_1361557918_n

but most days are like this and I am so thankful that!

This year for some crazy reason I have decided to become a runner….what was I thinking! Actually it has been fun, challenging and every emotion that you could think of, all in getting ready for Glass Slipper Challenge in February 2014

Color me RAD!

Timothy turned three this year! He is growing up so fast, turning three was a big deal because his room was changed around and his crib was turned into a big boy bed. He is doing so much on his own, its hard to let go and let him but everyday he is showing me that he is getting more independent and becoming his own little person with his own little personality.

My BFF turned 30 this year!!!! We had so much fun for Danielle’s Birthday, we had so many fun things planned including planning out 30 presents for her 30 birthday! We had a fabulous dinner at one of my fav spots the Cheesecake Factory where her hubby surprised her with a girls weekend trip to O-town

Staring this blog, I had no idea what¬†I¬†was doing, ¬†I have no idea what I am doing! I am hoping that all of you can get a glimpse into this fairytale life. I call it that not because my life is a perfect or some amazing fairytale all the time¬†but because in fairy tales, there is so much struggle to get to the happily ever after. I have my Prince Charming already but for anybody who has watched ONCE UPON A TIME knows even when you have your prince there is still always the struggle and fight between good and evil. Also on a much lighter note, I am obsessed with Disney and obsessed with fairy tales. Oh and being a¬†Princess I really could go on and on about my obsession with¬†all things make-believe¬†ūüôā

Back to the fact that I am obsessed with themes, we had Fall pictures done. Timothy is normally the best at getting his pictures done, but this day was a different story. Lucky for us we have an amazing photographer, Carrier Photography and in the middle of his crying and carrying on she still got some amazing shots

So sweet right?

Disney World! So we had an epic trip that I really never finished telling people about on the blog so I am just going to share some pics and you will see we had the best time ever. We stayed 8 days at the Caribbean Beach resort in the Pirate themed room!

Oh yeah and while we were there Timothy had his first haircut and it was the sweetest thing ever!

We tried to see every character we could, and Timothy’s phrase while we were there was “you wanna sign my book”

I have always dreamed about the time when I can take my child to Disney and they would love it as much as I do, and Timothy did not let me down, I have never EVER seen him so happy!

Of course we can’t talked about a recap of the year without talking about Christmas! Christmas with a three-year old was the most fun ever! Timothy was so excited and really understood about Santa this year. It really was the most magical day, I had my family over for Christmas dinner which turned out great and I felt so happy to spend it with people I love and the people who love me.
