First Day of Spring

So, if you’ve read my blog or followed me on Instagram, it’s obvious I am one of those “adult Disney fans”. I own it. In fact, I own it so much, I know WHEN to pose for ride photos….

Because the BEST time to have a wild phone conversation is on a ride, right? (Okay, Photo was totally staged, they ALWAYS are) LOL!!

I also photobomb characters.

And wear sparkly shoes with “critter” handbags.

Now this was all yesterday, so this was how we spent the first day of spring. The forecast was calling for heavy rain, but it’s been pushed to tomorrow, which meant we had a glorious afternoon adventure in the parks!

And I snagged these wicked awesome buttons. I LOVE official Disney buttons!

So there you have it! How did you spend your first day of Spring 2018?

Happy “Gotcha” Day!

Today (well, I’m on the West Coast, so it’s still technically March 18th!) marks the one-year anniversary of Arlowe the Cat becoming an official member of our household. I made sure he wasn’t chipped, and then had him chipped and his shots. 4 days later he went to the kitty “spa” to be fixed, de-wormed, and cleaned up, poor baby was a MESS! He had two kinds of worms, a cold, and two open wounds. And he was SO SKINNY!

Here’s last year:

And now he rules the roost:

The most human cat I’ve ever met. Happy “Gotcha” Day Arlowe….our lives (and my curtains) are forever changed by your arrival.

Until next time,

Jules


March

I know, we are nearly halfway through the month of March. It seems like 2018 is going to fly by faster than any previous year! I haven’t been posting as much, as I am at a bit of a crossroads. I’m not buying new Kate Spade (or rather direct from Kate Spade the company), due to the incident last year, but I don’t really want to change my blog name, or anything else online. I have stayed true to myself all the years I have been blogging, staying away from sponsorships that make ZERO sense, and hosting bizarre ads. I’ve never blogged to the stuff or money, but for the joy of sharing my style and mundane life with others! So, think may change a bit as time goes by, but I don’t see many of them. Just fewer new purchases and more Disney trips!

Some recent outfits:

Arlowe is still ruling the house (but is not allowed in the kitchen, which he lets us know is NOT OKAY)

I went to an Oscars party, and dragged a friend this year….

And we met Black Panther at Disney’s California Adventure Park!

Yeah, that’s the photo right there….utterly absurd and ridiculous looking! #nailedit

Until next time,

Jules


Walt Disney World

How have I not posted this sooner? We’ve been back from our family trip for nearly a month! We had the most amazing time EVER. It was worth the hours of planning, time spent changing and rearranging our plans, because everyone got to do everything they wanted. And the weather was perfect! Ponchos were not needed! Some photos:

My mom and I upgraded for the flight out (red eye!), and not sure how but I was upgraded on the flight home (Delta magic, THANK YOU!). I didn’t take tons of photos, instead we really just lived in the moment while we were there! Plus I was using my phone to keep our plans on schedule. Carry lots of battery packs, with Walt Disney Worlds FastPass system your phone will burn through juice!!

My favorite moments were just being with the kids and my parents. After almost losing my dad last year, this trip was a gift! Aren’t my parents the cutest:

My dad is seriously a big kid. I mean, he pretty much was growing up, but even more now. Brain surgery changes a person! It was a fun trip, but I was ready to come home. We all were….in fact we all had “celebrating the last day” buttons, and we skipped all out last day plans….instead opting to explore the Grand Floridian, and eating lunch at the Polynesian.

I’m so glad we went, and I can’t wait to drag my husband in May!

Until next time,

Jules
