Every Day is A Holiday / Happy National Waffle Day

August 24, 2018

Cars Waffle Flo’s V8 Café in Disney California Adventure
Happy National Waffle Day! Yup, according to my planner today, August 24, is National Waffle Day. Is it just me or does it seem like every day is National ‘something’ day? Seriously, yesterday was National Sponge Cake Day and the day before was National Tooth Fairy Day. National Tooth Fairy Day?!!

Now I love a good holiday as much as the next person. (In fact, I’m “that person” who starts decorating for Christmas the day after Halloween. No shade to Thanksgiving). But even I can admit that there are way to many random celebratory “days” nowadays. Ah, who am I kidding, the more there is to celebrate, the better!

Bring on all the weird holidays!

(Side note: Since today IS National Waffle Day, make sure to check out THIS POST featuring those delicious Cars themed waffles from Flo’s V8 Café in Disney California Adventure pictured above).

The Best Theme Park/Disney Youtube Channels

Best Disney Youtube Channels
I’m back! I had such a blast at Disney World and on my Disney Cruise but now, sadly, it’s back to reality. This was such a bittersweet trip because unfortunately, this was my last Disney trip for awhile. As most of you know, I’ve been an annual passholder at Disney for three years now (since 2015). And because of that, I was able to visit the Disney Parks quite often.

In fact, since 2015 I’ve visited a combination of Disneyland, Disney World and Disneyland Paris 20+ times. And I went on two Disney cruises in that timeframe as well! (That’s a LOT of Disney!). It’s hard to put into words but Disney is truly MY happy place. I don’t mind when people say things like “Disney is for kids”, or “Disney is a tourist trap” or “why waste money on Disney when you can visit to xyz!”. At the end of the day, it’s MY choice and I’ll always chose Disney.

But, there’s always a sliver lining. The reason I’m taking an extended Disney break (and not renewing my annual pass when it expires in October) is because I’m saving for a trip to Tokyo Disneyland! (Actually, I really want to spend a month in Asia and hit Tokyo Disneyland,  Shanghai Disneyland and Honk Kong Disneyland all within one trip!).

A little ambitious, I know!

Reliving My Childhood | Thrifting Adventures

August 6, 2018

Vintage Disney VHS Videos
Hey guys, Happy Monday! Although I’m currently in Disney World, aka my second home, and I usually don’t post while traveling, I wanted to share another post in my “Thrifting Adventures” series. I LOVE heading down to my local Goodwill to see if I can find some cool finds.

Whenever I go thrifting I try not to have any exceptions. I don’t want to go into it thinking “I hope I find this” or “I wonder if they’ll have this.” It’s always best to just go with the flow and have zero exceptions when thrifting. That way, when you DO find something, it’s that much better!

Here’s what I found at Goodwill:

To Travel is to Live [Travel TAG]

August 1, 2018

Eiffel Tower Paris at Night
Happy August everyone. It’s crazy how fast this summer has been going by. (But hey, no complaints here, bring on fall and winter please!). Even though I’m not the biggest fan of summer, I can’t deny that this summer has been a great one. In fact, I spent the first day of summer exploring Toronto, Canada. 

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 August, that means it’s time for another Tag! 

And since I started out this summer with a trip to Canada and next week I’ll be in Disney World, I thought today would be the perfect timing for a “travel tag.”

12 Months of Happiness: July 2018

July 30, 2018

Happy Monday and welcome to the latest installment of my 12 Months of Happiness series! This summer has been really awesome so far. We had a few super hot days here in Chicago but the last few days have been in the 70s/80s so I definitely can’t complain. And since July is finally coming to an end, that means my Disney World + Disney Cruise countdown can officially begin!

In just six days I’ll be back at home in Walt Disney World. (I can’t wait to explore Toy Story Land!). And in just 11 days I’ll be back on the Disney Dream for another incredible Disney Cruise. I CAN’T WAIT!!

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