Mickey’s Very Merry Christmastime Parade

Last week when Chris and I were at Disney we took the opportunity to go to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  We had gone to the party last year but didn't really know what to expect so we spent a lot of time wandering around aimlessly trying to figure out what we wanted to do and see.  This year though, we went in with a plan. I really wanted to take the time to see the 8:15pm and 10:30pm parade shows, that way I could enjoy one and try to get pictures of the second one.  The Frozen show Continue reading [...]

Five Ways to Improve Your Photography Skills

It's been a little over a year since I received my first DSLR and I still cannot believe how much I've improved since I took that first picture.  I am still nowhere near where I want to be but I am continuing to learn and hone my craft more and more each day. Today I want to share what I've done on my own journey (and what I still need to do).  How I started and how I've gotten to where I am.  I still have a very long road ahead of me, but I am proud of where I am at. It has taken a lot of Continue reading [...]

Paper Mache Christmas Decorations

Last week I wrote about why we went all musical with our Christmas decorations this year. It's been a lot of fun to make my own decorations to go with the theme, and I am so inspired by all the great Christmas tunes that are now hanging out in our home. Some of my favorite Christmas projects on Pinterest have been made with paper mache cones.  Not only are they cheap projects but they also just look really cool.  I was determined to make my own paper mache Christmas decorations this year, Continue reading [...]

Five Reasons to do Christmas at Disney

Ever since getting married in 2012 Chris and I have made a point to head down to Disney World for Christmas.  For me, the holiday season hasn't started until I see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights or Cinderella's Castle all lit up with her holiday lights. It's the very best time of the year! Christmas is my favorite holiday and going to Disney is my favorite travel destination, so combining the two is a match made in Heaven for me.  If you've never been to Disney during the Continue reading [...]

Gifts for the Cook

When Chris and I got married I only knew how to cook two dishes, and Chris would only eat one of them.  I was never allowed in the kitchen growing up because I had a unique talent for burning anything I touched.  I put a cookie in the microwave once to warm it up and it caught on fire (true story).  So I had to learn quickly how to feed my new husband because I was not about to let us starve or waste money on eating out all the time. Three years later I can honestly say Continue reading [...]
