Pin Trading at Disneyland | Monthly Pin Update

December 1, 2022

Pin Trading at Disneyland
Happy December! It’s been a minute since I last posted. The hosting for this blog had expired and, if I’m being honest, I was thinking of not renewing it. I had 3 weeks to decide if I wanted to renew or lose Simply Sinova forever. But then I thought about all the work I’ve put into this blog over the past 8/9/10(?!) years. And I didn’t want to lose the memories. Even if I’m not as active and don’t post as much, I want to forever have this blog to look back on.

This blog represents a certain chapter of my life (a great chapter at that!). And for that reason I renewed the hosting! But enough rambling, time for another pin update~

Here’s the pins I bought + traded for while at Disneyland: Continue reading

Bits and Pieces: Disneyland During Halloween

October 24, 2022

Disneyland During HalloweenHappy Monday! I can’t believe October is almost over. How are we about to be 11 months into 2022?! I wanted to post two more posts before the month is up. The first post being this one and the second one being the part two to my monthly pin post that I promised.

One of my absolute favorite times to visit Disneyland is during Halloween time. The weather is perfect (well, normally it is. There was a heat wave when I went but let’s not talk about that). The Haunted Mansion becomes Haunted Mansion Holiday. The decor is top notch. And the seasonal food is mouth watering. 

I just LOVE Disneyland during the fall!

Happy Monday. It’s OCTOBER! A new month means a new monthly pin update post. This month I’m actually going to be posting two update posts for September. This first one is going to be about the new Disney pins I got before my trip to Disneyland. The second pin update post will be decided solely to the pins I bought and traded for while at Disneyland.

So get ready for a Disney pin overload! Are you ready? 

Here’s the new pins I got in September:

This is Halloween | Halloween Decor at HomeGoods

September 19, 2022

Halloween Decor at HomeGoodsYou guys?! Do you know what Thursday is? FALL! That’s right, this week is officially fall. FINALLY! Which also means my LEAST favorite time of the year, summer, is finally behind us. YAY! Although, I’ll be in California later this week where there’s a heat wave and it’s 95 degrees so I guess I won’t be escaping the summer weather just yet. BUT, here in Chicago the weather has been so beautiful!

And since it’s (almost) fall, that’s means I can finally start decorating for Halloween!! I am not going to lie to you guys…I took these photos back in late Julyish(?) but have waited to post them. I know a lot of people don’t start decorating for fall/Halloween until late September/October but not me! As most of you may know I LOVE holidays so I try to extend them for as long as possible. I like to get almost 2 months worth of the holiday. So for Halloween I start decorating on September 1. That way my decor is up from September – October 31.

And for Christmas I start decorating on November 1 so I get a little under two months of having that decor up. I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it works for me. The longer I get to have my holiday decor up, the happier my mood is! And speaking of holiday decor…

Here’s a look at this years Halloween Decor at HomeGoods! Continue reading

Yearly Broadway Recap: First Half of 2022 (January – July)

August 31, 2022

CIBC Theatre Six the Musical Aragon Tour
Hiya everyone! Welcome to a new series here on the blog. This series is dedicated  to one of my favorite things: Broadway. I’ve decided to start doing a little “Broadway recap” sort of thing. This won’t be me necessarily “recapping” the shows I’ve seen, it will more so be me listing the shows I’ve seen. Basically, this is a way to keep track of all of the show’s I’ve seen during the year.  Instead of doing this monthly I’ve decided to break the series into three posts.

The first post (this one) will recap the shows I’ve seen for the first half of the year. (Technically the first half of the year is January – June, but I’m including July in this post too). The second post will recap the shows I’ve seen during the second half of the year. Then the final/third post will be an overview of all of the shows I saw throughout the year and different little highlights about my favorite shows, etc.    

So let’s get started!
