orlando week (and pandora)


Last week I went down to Orlando for a training for work, so Austin and I took advantage of it and spent the weekend after in Disney. 
Spending a week away from each other may not be a lot, but when you're still in the "honeymoon" phase, it feels like it. So while I really enjoyed myself at the training, I was over the moon to see the husband on Friday!
 I finally stopped Disney Springs (besides just boating through it). It was awesome- especially the creamery!!!
Saturday we tried out the new part of the Animal Kingdom park, Pandora. During the day it was pretty amazing, but at night.....it's even more spectacular! I totally recommend it! I also loved the food.... 

 No stop to Disney Springs would be complete without a Sprinkles visit... even if I was full at the time (but eating it in bed was perfection). 
 Remember the Pandora food I was mentioning? Austin and I tried the dessert too (because duh). The above is the Pandora blueberry cheesecake (the inside was purple)! It was interesting....but still good.

Sea World day (with my coworkers!) Such fun- even if it was rainy the whole time!

This adorable shop and it's printable bookmarks and journaling prompt sheets are pretty awesome.

If you're a feminist, or just love girl power (channeling my inner Spice Girl here) then you'll love this site and all of it's inspiration and scrapbooking story telling.

This dress in white just screams summer to me.

This dress is also on my need list.

I cannot wait for this movie to come out!!

I am totally in love with this marble kitchen island!

Okay, this entryway is what home dreams are made of!

I'm pretty much in love with this wall art. And since Austin likes it too (in an ombre theme) I'm hoping to try a version of it soon!!!

May I have one of each of these dresses? Pretty please??

In pinteresting all kinds of homes- I've decided that split level rooms are my favorite currently.... like this gorgeous home. Oh and this home too!
There is a good chance that I will either create a pinterest board for only split level houses or just make a blog post. Haha- but seriously-- that's how much love there is right now.

If you like card games and Pride and Prejudice, come play this with me!! I can't believe this is a thing--but I'm so happy it is.

A notebook perfect for summer!

I love every single one of these DIY shelves.

dinner (him vs me)

I'm just going to go ahead and put this out there. I suck at cooking. Yes, I know with practice I could get better, but let me put something else out there.... I hate cooking.  Loathe it. I will clean dishes, I will bake, but please don't make me cook!

However, with that being said, I should've known that being married would change that. (Not the liking it part, but the having to do it part).

So this week, we both took turns cooking.
 The outcome?
Well, I forgot to season the meat..... and added too much flour to the dumplings.
His meal? Perfect of course.
(above photo: me devouring the burrito he made!)

Yeah, yeah- married life isn't about competing... whatever.

But really self? You forgot to season the meat?!? I take this as a sign that I need to cook less (or I guess more...whatever...).

Austin- I think this is a sign....you should cook me dinner all the time (wink, wink)!

song #4 Me Too

I'm pretty sure this is every teacher right now (yea me included (and yea I'm mean)). 
Yay for summer!!!!!

This blog post....20 favorite journaling bible supplies. <3

Book of the month club. Yes please.

Speaking of online book buying......I learned about this site from an instagram pal. Cheap books!!!

Speaking of book deals....this site emails you about books on sale (from FREE to $2) everyday!!

I want....no, need this dress!!!

THIS challenge looks like SOOOO much fun!! It starts May 17th!

I really love this DIY photo album idea. So crafty!

All I can say, is these wooden beams!!!! Swoon.

This illustration/design is perfect for summer.

These brownies look so incredibly amazing.

I'm pretty much addicted to the new show Cable Girls on Netflix (can't wait for the season to return!!)! The music is also pretty stellar. 

Harry Potter fans- check out this adorable Wizarding World of Harry Potter minibook!!

Can we talk about the amazingness of the men in this photo?

Best productivity advice from writers. Such a good read.

This polka dot background for your computer and phone is not only fun, but FREE!!


Can we talk about how creative these women are? Jules and Tea and Tanya Lee Kahler. Love them! Only wish I had found them sooner!

And speaking of Tanya Lee..... I'm kind of in love with this art idea... maybe a 2017 project for me?

If you're a Harry Potter fan, you'll love these memes and jokes. I literally can't stop laughing!

Ok, so if you are a Harry Potter fan and you haven't taken this sorting quiz (the official one) then you have to.  Apparently I am Ravenclaw (but I've thought and called myself Hufflepuff this whole time). You can also find your patronus and wand.

Speaking of Harry Potter.... here are pictures of some of the cast proving that being "longbottomed" is now an adjective!! 

I'm kind of in love with this mini album/scrapbook. Her blog is pretty awesome too!

I'm in love with these earrings!!! Seriously.

One of each of these brightly colored notebooks please!!!

This new (to me) show has me binge watching!! There aren't a lot of episodes, but the few they have are great!

This print is stunning. 

This t-shirt is all sorts of awesome.

so this is 30

I have to say, this Cinco de Kellie was awesome! We rang in my new decade in roaring 20's style at an adorable 20's themed restaurant and bar in St. Augustine. 












I feel so incredibly lucky and blessed to have such wonderful friends that would dress up and drive all that way to celebrate with me (especially Kim, who drove 5 hours just for the night!)
By the end of the night we were exhausted, but it was so worth it. 
So cheers to thirty! It's gonna be a great decade!!!!!
