Our First Family Vacation

It’s been almost 3 months since our first family vacation and I’m still smitten about it. Lil Bean got a chance to meet so many Disney characters. My parents and D’s parents got their first taste of Disney World. And D and I made some wonderful memories with our baby girl. It was magical and I can’t wait to go… Read more →

Disney World with a Baby

The House of Mouse takes our money every even year. And we don’t mind. No, seriously. D and I love Disney World. We love Florida. We love vacations. So we budget well, and we make it happen. This year we went above our typical “you and me” getaway and included our daughter and our parents! That’s right. Our first family… Read more →

Moving Back to California

After nearly a decade in the Washington D.C. area, D and I picked up our lives and moved back to California in November 2017. You’re probably wondering why such a late update!? Well, I just got busy… Motherhood, ya know? We found out we were leaving Virginia/D.C. a couple weeks before Thanksgiving. The move happened so quickly, I don’t think… Read more →

We Moved!!!

Yes, we moved… Again!!! Haha. Ya’ll remember me griping about how much I hate moving from last year, right? Yeah, well we went through the pain and agony of moving again this year AND, at the time, I was 28 weeks pregnant. We’re crazy. So where did we move to, you might ask? We decided to head out of D.C.… Read more →

Disney World Tips

Let’s get down to business… to defeat Disney World!!! Hehehe. Call us freaks. Nerds. Geeks. Fans. Enthusiasts. Devotees. Aficionados. Whatever. We really enjoy our trips to Disney World and Disneyland over the years. I know I’ve shared this before but fun fact: I’ve pretty much been to a Disney park each year of my life. With all of the trips… Read more →

Rewind to Our Unwind

Before even going to the Democratic National Convention in Philly this year, I knew D and I needed another vacation. For D, he hit a major professional roadblock. He was trying for a good portion of the year to move us back to California by seeking a promotion in one of the Marriott hotels in Southern California. For me, I… Read more →

Moving… again!

I absolutely loathe moving. I’ve done it several times as an adult, and I’m at the point that one more move will probably break me. But hear me out!!! This streak of endless moves started in college. My dad went berserk one day after I told him my proposed living situation; I’d spend the week days at my aunt’s house… Read more →

Cherry Blossom Season

I really like being able to experience seasons. Back in California we got a dry season and a rainy season. Pretty much all we ever get. But living in DC I’ve been able to watch the leaves turn bright yellow and red, the first snowflake fall, and the tiny buds bloom into beautiful blossoms. I think of all the seasons,… Read more →

D’s Dirty 30

I’ve know D since he was 9 years old. We both were goofy looking, with huge glasses, and awkward gaps in our mouths. Fast forward 21 years and D’s my partner in crime. We’ve also outgrown our goofy looks, huge glasses, and awkward gaps in our mouths! Thank goodness. Haha. For his 30th birthday, D wanted to take a little… Read more →

Bahama mama

I wish I was sipping on one right now. Ah, a delicious Bahama mama. A few weeks ago I posted about our recent decision to visit the Bahamas in January. It was a bit spontaneous considering we didn’t officially know we were going until a few weeks prior to the trip. But again, that’s how we like to roll. (Sometimes… Read more →
