Wedding Series- The Disneymoon

Hello loves! Part 2 of my wedding series is going to be my Disney World/Honeymoon planning post.

Let me tell you out of all the planning I have been doing for everything in my wedding, this has probably been the hardest/most time consuming out of it all.

Let’s start off with how the place was chosen…

My fiancé and I planned on going road trip style, down the beach to Disneyland to stay a few days.

Well my soon to be mother in law called us and said “why don’t you two go to Florida to Disney World?” We had told her that was too expensive for us and that’s why we were doing something closer to home. She said no no… find a hotel and get the best room and stay for a week, I’m going to do this for you guys, it’s your wedding.

Yes. I was in shock.

So we looked and looked, it was kind of difficult because we hadn’t been to Disney World before so we had to go by pictures/distances from parks/recommendations from cast members.

We finally decided on Hotel Contemporary, this hotel is pretty great, the monorail runs right through the hotel! We have a Theme Park view room so if we’d like we can see fireworks/etc.

As a Disneyland AP holder I haven’t had any experience in half the things you have to do for Disney World, example making dining reservations 6 months in advance!

Yeah that was an experience… one of the hard things was we had never eaten at any of these places before so we had no idea if they were good or not but I can’t imagine anything being bad in Disney World. Another difficult thing was that a few things I wanted, the reservations were filled by the time I even got on! Yeah that was nuts!

But, this is our honeymoon… I’m going to go with the flow and everything is going to be amazing because I will have my Hubby with me!

My soon to be hubby is so easy going, he’s just letting me set up plans and just going with the flow and all he has to do is show up!

Let’s just say our Disneymoon is going to be perfect no matter how we spend it, no matter what the Florida weather chooses to be… because I’ll have my Husband by my side!

XOXO,

Ashley

Holidays 2017

Good afternoon lovelies!

This year holidays were different to me, not because we did anything different- it was the feeling. I mean yes my family spent Thanksgiving in Disneyland but that didn’t change much for me.

My mom decided to book a trip down to Disneyland to celebrate Thanksgiving to have some much needed family time. We stayed in a hotel that looked like a house, it had a full kitchenette and even an upstairs. How did we spend our Thanksgiving meal you may ask?

One evening we had gotten back from the park and we were just relaxing, we had talked about doing Medieval times but decided against it. One of the hotel workers recommended a place where you eat your thanksgiving meal and you watch this Pirate show. This show was SO impressive! I would choose to go again because I was so impressed. This topped off our whole trip.

Moving on to Christmas… This year Christmastime felt so different to me. I felt so in the Christmas spirit. I don’t think it was because I watched Hallmark movies all month but who knows- just kidding! It felt so good to be with family and be surrounded by the people I love through the whole season. This year I planned everywhere my fiance and I had to go (family wise) so I felt so much less stress this year.

This year it wasn’t about the gifts given, it was nice of them to give but that was the last thing I cared about. This year it was about being surrounded by the ones I love.  It was also my last Christmas before I get married next September, time flies.

Overall my Holidays were pretty darn great.

How were your holidays?

XOXO,

Ashley

Thanksgiving at Disney 2017

Thanksgiving is approaching fast, next week in fact! Wow, this year is going by so fast.

Thanksgiving is usually a holiday that I spend jumping from family to family all day. It usually starts off at one of my grandmas houses then to my fiancé’s grandmas then finally my other grandmas for dinner with my parents and brother. Crazy day right? Gotta love it!

This year my mom decided to spend Thanksgiving in a totally different way than normal. She has been planning for months and now it’s finally almost here!

My Mom/Dad has decided that as a family (me, my brother, my fiancé and my parents) we are spending Thanksgiving at Disneyland! She has booked a “penthouse” suite for the five of us, we will spend Monday through Thursday there.

As a family we love going to Disney, all the people that say Disneyland is for children are completely wrong. We all are Annual Passholders.

Honestly I love being an Annual Passholder. For one, it’s so much cheaper in the end, one visit pretty much pays for the whole thing. Being an AP allows us to just plan a spur of the moment trip, all we need to do is book hotels. Yes we have blackout days but those days are the most crowded anyway!

Being an AP has other perks also- discounts in the parks, little events that are held throughout the year, being able to hop from park to park… the list goes on.

We have never spent Thanksgiving anywhere other than Home… or any other holiday for that matter! Thanksgiving to me, means spending time with your families and being thankful for their presence. I’m so excited to spend this amazing week with the ones I love the most in one of the places we all love the most!

What are you all doing for thanksgiving? Feel free to leave it in the comments, I would love to know what your plans are!

XOXO,

Ashley

Valentine’s Day ’17

Hello lovelies! I hope you all are having amazing days and have had a great Valentine’s Day with your loved ones. 

My day has been pretty busy and honestly tiring! I have worked all day and then was bombarded with a migraine smacked in the middle of my day. 

Well I have gotten off track to what this post is about! My fiancé usually works until about 4:30-5:30 and comes straight home. 

Not today! He surprised me with a dozen red roses (I am one that loves flowers beside my bed, I love the way they look and smell.) He also came home with a giant white bear with a red bow around his neck and a box of chocolates. I was so surprised with the gifts I was given. Let me make something clear, I don’t expect gifts ever! I’m happy with just being together. 


Overall, my Valentine’s Day was amazing, how were all of your days? 

XOXO, 

Ashley

Memorial Day weekend 

So I’m laying next to the pool, spending time with my family. I’m enjoying the sun and the nice weather. Especially being able to just relax. 

This weekend is a pretty chill weekend, we made a fruit salad and a veggie plate, getting dinner ready so we could hang out outside and make dinner when we’re ready. 

I am going to have a Costal scents review coming soon because I took advantage of their 30% off sale. I figured because I was an affiliate I should have some of their products reviewed on my blog. I’m going to try to buy things in time from my affiliate sites and review them all but I’m starting with Costal Scents. 

So, I hope you guys are having a great Memorial Day weekend! 

XOXO, 

Ashley
