Happy May and welcome to a new segment here on the blog! I miss doing my little monthly segments (RIP 12 Months of Happiness) so I thought it would be fun to create a new one. (Because why not?). I’ve been slowly growing my Disney pin collection more and more and I’ve been wanting to share more about it here on the blog. This new monthly segment is called: Monthly Pin Update or MPU for short.
In this series I’ll just be updating you on what new pins I’ve gotten that month. Sometimes it will be pins I purchased or, when I go to Disney, pins I’ve traded for. I thought it would be a fun way to sort of watch the growth of my pin collection.
In April, I purchased a few new pins from BoxLunch:
Happy Monday everyone! I got back from my birthday Disneyland trip last Monday (technically Tuesday morning) so it’s the perfect time to start sharing little bits and pieces from the trip. It’s weird because normally I write my blog posts on my laptop but today I’m typing it up on my iMac so it’s a little different. I don’t use my iMac much so I’m trying to give it a little more attention.
Any who, you all know that I love a good Epcot festival. The Festival of the Arts, the Flower and Garden Festival, the Festival of the Holidays and, of course, the Food and Wine Festival. But oddly enough, I’ve never gotten to experience a festival at DCA. So I was super excited when I learned that my birthday trip was going to fall during the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.
Here’s a little mini recap of the 2022 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival:
Happy Thursday. I know what you’re thinking, “Three blog posts this month alone and two posts in one week?!”. I know, I know. I’m patting myself on the back as I type this. Just Kidding. But I am glad I’ve been able to blog as much as I have this month. You’re probably also thinking “Isn’t Easter this Sunday? Why are you posting about your Easter Basket now?.” Well, good question. Yes, Easter is this Sunday but Sunday is also my birthday. And since I will be at Disneyland, the Easter Bunny decided to be a real one and drop off my Easter Basket early!
Can you believe the last time I posted about Easter/my Easter Basket was in 2014!?? That feels like forever ago. I was still in college back then. Crazy.
Here’s what was in my Easter Basket:
I was on Pinterest the other day (yes I still love browsing Pinterest) and I saw one of MY photos show up on my explore page. (This is only the third time that’s ever happened to me!). It was a photo of some candy from Honeydukes in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter from one of my old Bits and Pieces posts. I completely forgot that I started this series back in 2019. Honestly, I actually loved posting little bits and pieces from my trips but then 2020/covid hit…well, you know what happened with that.
I went back through some of my old Bit and Pieces posts and I thought “Aww, I need to post more of these.” Plus, I never get tired of posting more related Disney posts. And since I’ll be in Disneyland this weekend celebrating my birthday, it only makes sense to post another Disney post to the blog!
So here’s a few (like legit five?!) cute photos from Magic Kingdom:
Happy Monday and happy April! My birthday month has officially begun and I couldn’t be happier. To celebrate my birthday I’m going to Disneyland next week. So in honor of that trip, I wanted to do a little simple Disney DIY. Now listen, I am no seamstress but I’ve been seeing this cute DIY all over my Instagram. People have been taking the Disney Pixar Turning Red plush blanket bag and turning it into a plush crossbody bag.
When I first saw this plush bag I was curious why Disney didn’t make it into a crossbody because they’ve done it before with Duffy, Winnie the Pooh, etc. I held off from buying the bag because I didn’t want to have to carry it around. Then I saw so many people turning them into crossbody bags and I was like “hey, that’s so smart!”
So the question is, was making this crossbody really as easy as everyone made it seem?
