I’m super excited to say that our kitchen renovation is ALMOST finished.  So close – but not quite there yet.  I’m excited to share pictures as soon as it’s done – and even invite people over! I’m not embarrassed of our house anymore!!! In the meantime, I…
A beautiful way to display the beautiful Disney Starbucks coffee mugs.

2015 White House Correspondents Dinner

My favorite place to eat at Walt Disney World has gotten even better. It’s a small, tucked-away spot that most people glance over, but it’s a hidden gem of delicious goodness. I’m talking about Kona Island at Disney’s Polynesian Resort.  To the untrained…
My favorite place to eat at Walt Disney World has gotten even better. It’s a small, tucked-away spot that most people glance over, but it’s a hidden gem of delicious goodness.
