Monday’s Music 30 // Modern Broadway Playlist

January 20, 2020

Modern broadway playlist
Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s been over TWO YEARS since my last Monday’s Music playlist. (Insert Homer disappearing gif). Awkward. Well, what better time to revive this series than in a new decade? Originally I planed on sharing a general Broadway playlist but it got to difficult trying to narrow down songs. So I came up with a different plan.

Today’s playlist is a Modern Broadway Playlist. Modern Broadway meaning shows that came out between 2010-2019. The rules were, I could choose ONE song per year (for example one song from a show that premiered in 2013, one song from a show that premiered in 2014). Another rule was that I could only pick songs from shows I’ve actually seen. There’s so many amazing Broadway shows/songs out there so you can expect more Broadway themed playlists in the future!

Here’s my Modern Broadway playlist: Continue reading

And All That Jazz – Broadway Tag Q&A

January 13, 2020

Broadway in Chicago Broadway playbills
Pictured above are the Broadway musicals/shows that I saw in 2019. Not to bad for one year but I plan on seeing WAY more in 2020. I don’t really do New Years resolutions, but I do like to set goals for myself. And one of my goals this year is to see MORE Broadway shows than I did last year.

In fact, I already have tickets to see Mean Girls, Hadestown, Moulin Rouge and Beetlejuice this month (January)! Although tons of great shows tour here in Chicago, I plan on taking a few trips to NYC this year just to see more Broadway shows. (In fact, I’m heading on my first ‘Broadway trip’ to NYC next weekend!).

Needless to say, I’m a huge broadway lover.

Dining at Enchanted Garden on the Disney Dream | Disney Cruise Line

Dinning at Enchanted Garden on the Disney Dream Disney Cruise Line
It’s been a while since my last Disney Restaurant Review post or my last Disney Cruise post. So today I thought I’d combine the two and bring you guys a Disney Cruise Line restaurant review. *Drops mic*. As of January 2020,  I’ve sailed on the Disney Dream three times. (Side note: I’m still not use to typing 2020). Although I LOVE the Dream, I’m so excited to be cruising on the Fantasy for the first time this August. But back to the Disney Dream…

There are three main rotational dinning rooms on the Disney Dream: Animator’s Palate, Enchanted Garden and The Royal Palace. All three restaurants are amazing but my favorite restaurant is definitely Animator’s Palate. Enchanted Garden gets the number two spot for me, leaving The Royal Palace as my least favorite. (But like I said earlier, they are all good!).

I’m going to be reviewing all three of the main rotational dinning rooms located on the Disney Dream. But for today, we’ll be talking exclusively about Enchanted Garden! 

Here’s everything you need to know about dining at Enchanted Garden on the Disney Dream: Continue reading

Opening Disney Parks Wishables

January 6, 2020

Disney Parks Wishables
I love ALL things Disney so naturally when Disney releases new products, I more often than not want to buy them/check them out. When Disney first started releasing Disney Parks Washables I thought they were super adorable. I mean a Disney plush blind bag? How could I resist?

But, I never bought one or really got too into them because I wasn’t a fan of the $9.99 price. I realize that most blind bags are sort of around that price but still, for some reason I just never bought one. I would see them at the parks and thought they were cute and even came close to buying them once. But I always ended up putting them back.

However, recently Disney came out with the most adorable Disney Parks Wishables set, a Disney Cruise Line one, and it sparked my interest in Wishables again. Although I won’t be able to get them (if they are still available) until my next Disney Cruise in August, Santa brought my three Disney Parks Wishables for Christmas! Thanks Santa!

Here’s the Disney Parks Washables I got for Christmas: Continue reading

12 Months of Happiness: December 2019

January 3, 2020

Disney World Hollywood Studios Tower of Terror during Christmas
I feel like December FLEW by. Heck, 2019 flew by. I seriously can’t believe it’s already 2020 and a new decade. At the beginning of the decade (2010) I was graduating high school. (I can’t believe it’s been nearly TEN years since I graduated high school). And now here I am 27 and living the dream. My dream.

I am exactly where I hoped I’d be and exactly where I want to be in life. A good job. (That allows me the freedom to travel often). Great friends and family. Good health. Life is good!

Also, yes I know this post is late. My bad!

Here are some of the things that made December an amazing month: (Don’t forget to comment down below how your December went and what things made you smile this month! I LOVE hearing from you guys about what makes you happy!)
