I started this blog I told myself I was not going to be one of those people who
apologizes for not blogging as often as one thinks they should, particularly
since currently I am working under the assumption that only like four of you
are actually reading it right now. I started this post the day after Dapper
Day, like a kid excited to share her Christmas presents, and now here it is two
weeks later and the images are still sitting here wordless.
#targetdoesitagain. Someone tell Flora & Merryweather to stop bickering already because I found a dress that makes them both happy! I was going to forgo a new Easter dress this past weekend due to the recent closet-cleaning-out and the fact that Miss Stella needs her teeth cleaned (can someone figure out a less expensive way to clean a dog’s teeth, please), but then I stumbled across this $29 number at Target, on sale for $25.
Dressing for your Hogwarts House doesn’t have to mean theming or uniforms. That can be fun too, but if you don’t have the budget for an entire Wizarding Wardrobe, there are plenty of ways to incorporate everyday pieces into your house style.
When you’re going to be at the park all day it’s good to come prepared. I am notorious for leaving my house forgetting at least one thing I need for the day (just ask my friend Sarah who has had to turn around the car twenty feet out of the driveway more times than I can count). In order to help aleviate the stress of packing a bag each time we go, I keep a park bag packed with basics that I can grab and go.
One of the perks of living in Orlando is that in lieu of being able to take an actual vacation this spring (yay, deadlines), I can go on safari in my own back yard! The Animal Kingdom, in my humble opinion, is one of the most under-rated Disney parks. Sure, there aren’t as many rides as the other parks offer, but they make up for it with the many healthy and yummy food choices (sorry, Casey’s hot dog) and all the cute animals (I’m lookin at you, sheep with hidden mickey shaved onto your butt cheek).
One of my very favorite fesitvals ever is Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and I’ve been more times than I can count on all fingers. If your only perception of Mardi Gras is ‘Bourbon Street and boobs’ then you are missing out on arguably the best part of Mardi Gras – the parades (this is where people get all the beads – not by showing their boobs, sorry guys).
