A Guide to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney World

August 28, 2019

A Guide to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney WorldI wouldn’t say I’m the biggest Star Wars fan out there, but I’m definitely a huge fan of the franchise. I remember seeing The Phantom Menace opening weekend back in 1999. Can’t believe I was only 7 at the time! Honestly, that’s probably where my love of Ewan McGregor came from. Any who, although the prequels weren’t that good, at least we have the originals and the new trilogy. Right. Right?

During my quick trip to Disney World last week, I had the incredible opportunity to preview the new Star Wars land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. While Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been open at Disneyland for a few months now, its Disney World counterpart does not officially open until tomorrow, August 29th! Getting a chance to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge before it opened to the public was seriously a dream come true!

Here’s a little recap of my visit to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney World:

Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes Exhibit at The Franklin Institute

August 9, 2019

Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes Exhibit at The Franklin Institute It’s no secret that I love all things Disney. And by all things Disney, I mean ALL things Disney. That includes: Pixar, Star Wars, The Muppets and of course Marvel. Although, I was a huge Marvel fan way before Disney purchased them. Or before Iron Man and the start of the MCU. (Marvel Cinematic Universe for all the non-Disney speakers). My love of Marvel started way back in the 90’s when I was just a little girl.

Growing up I LOVED X-Men. Love might not even be a strong enough word. I’ve mentioned this several times on the blog before but I even wanted to bleach a strip of my hair white when I was a kid so I could look like Rouge. I loved anything X-Men related. The comic books, the animated TV shows, the live-action films, video games. If it was X-Men, I watch/owned it!

Yup, my love for Marvel goes way back.

Brunch at White Dog Cafe in University City, Philadelphia

July 8, 2019

Brunch at White Dog Cafe in University City, PhiladelphiaHi everybody! (If you didn’t immediately think of Dr. Nick and/or The Simpsons…we can’t be friends anymore. Just kidding. But not really). In my 48 hours in Philadelphia post, I said I’d be sharing more about White Dog Cafe. As well as giving an overall review of the restaurant. Well… drum roll please…here it is!

I had wanted to visit White Dog Cafe ever since I saw it featured on Food Network years ago. I honestly don’t even remember what Food Network program I saw it on. But it always stuck with me. Maybe it’s because I’m a huge dog lover? Regardless, visiting White Dog Cafe had been on my bucket list for a while now. And it definitely lived up to the hype. 

I am in LOVE with White Dog Cafe!

48 hours in Philadelphia: What to Do, Eat and See in Philly

July 1, 2019

I heart Philadelphia sign Love ParkHappy Monday everyone! Also, happy July. Quick question: What day do you guys consider to be the “start” of the week? Because I’ve always thought Sunday was the first day of the week. But I know a lot of people consider Monday to be the start of the week. I guess it’s because Monday is the start of most people’s work/school week? Sunday is the start of my work week though. I’ve always been confused on that.

I just Googled it and even Google doesn’t have a definitive answer. Weird. Anyway, as promised, today I’m going to be sharing a recap of my recent trip to Philadelphia. Since I love putting together little travel guides (like this one for St. Louis), I thought it would be fun to share a few of my Philly “must do’s.” Normally when I visit Philadelphia, it’s usually only for a day or two. But from experience, there’s a ton of fun things you can do and explore in Philly in a short amount of time!

Heading to Philly? Here’s what to see, do and eat in Philadelphia
