What I'm Looking Forward To This Summer (2018)
Welcome back to another installment of my “What I’m Looking Forward To” series! I know I say this all the time (no really, I say this in EVERY post) but I absolutely LOVE this series! It’s always so much fun coming up with little lists like this and it truly does help me get excited for the upcoming season.

Although I’m not the biggest fan of summer (it’s actually my least favorite season. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun and all but I’m not a fan of the heat and I’ve just always loved winter, spring and fall more), I’m actually really excited for summer to officially start tomorrow!

For me, summer means traveling, BBQ’s, long nights, swimming, spending countless nights at the beach, picnics, S’mores, music festivals, hanging out with friends and family and everything in between!

Here are a few of the things I’m looking forward to this summer (June 21 – September 22):

Tale As Old As Time, True As It Can Be [Disney Princess Tag]

June 18, 2018

Beauty and the Beast iPhone case
As some of you may recall, I’ve been trying to post one Q&A/Tag post per month/every few months. (So you guys can get to know a little more about me and I can in turn learn more about you guys). Since it’s now June (and my last tag post was in May), that means it’s time for another Tag!

If it wasn’t already obvious from the title or the picture, I’m doing a..wait for it…Disney Tag! Before you say “But didn’t you already do a Disney Tag?!”.Yes, I’ve already done a Disney Tag (filled with general Disney questions) but this a Disney Princess Tag! (And thus completely different).

Oh, BTW, Elsa is a queen NOT a princess so don’t expect to see her on this Tag.

Disney Cruise Line: Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats

June 15, 2018

Vanellope's Sweets and Treats
In honor of today’s release of Incredibles 2 (I’m seeing it later tonight), I thought it would be fun to do a Disney themed post today. (I know, I know The Incredibles is Pixar not Disney but you know what I mean). It’s no secret that I LOVE all things Disney and Disney Cruise’s are no exception!

My Disney Cruise back in January was an absolute blast and I can’t wait until my next Disney Cruise this August! I know what you’re thinking, “Two Disney Cruises in one year?!”. I was telling my mom the other day how when we discover something “new” within Disney, we tend to go a bit overboard. Case in point, we visited Disneyland Paris twice in one year and now we’re taking two Disney Cruises within the same year.

What can I say, Disney is my happy place!

Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

Shake Shack Chicago
Hey! I know I’ve been super inconsistent when it comes to blogging lately, and I’m not here to give excuses, but I just wanted to check in and give you guys a little update. So basically, I’ve been SUPER unmotivated lately. It is what it is. I have so many fun blog post ideas in my head, but whenever I go to sit down and write, I just can’t.

My goal for this month, and the summer, is to get back to my regular blogging schedule. (AKA new posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday). I still have a lot of Disney Cruise posts to share with you guys. (It’s crazy to think that that cruise was back in January. I can’t wait until my next Disney Cruise in August!).

Also, can we just talk about that photo for a second. Who doesn’t love Shack Shake?!

Celebrate the #ULTRADAD in Your Life with Michelob ULTRA

It’s June, which means Father’s Day is right around the corner. Whether it’s your brother, friend or your own father, let’s toast to the #ULTRADAD who inspires us to live full lives and make better choices. 

Although I was raised by a single mom, I had two amazing father figures in my life: my granddad (who is sadly no longer with us) and my uncle. Growing up, we would always barbecue to celebrate Father’s Day. I have so many vivid memories of waiting by the grill while my grandad flipped the burgers and hotdogs.

My granddad would always let me help make the potato salad for the Father’s Day BBQ. He said I was the only one he trusted with the “special ingredient.” (Even though everyone in the family knew it!).

In fact, to this day, whenever I barbecue I always think back to those moments with my granddad!
