Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.


Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

Current Favorite (Free) Workouts!

Who has time for DVD's? - Not this momma! That's why I'm obsessed with streaming workout routines from Youtube! Today I'm going to share two of my favorite Fitness Channels on Youtube!


POP Pilates

I'm fairly new to the POP Army, but when I saw several amazing momma friends on Instagram using the hashtag #POPARMY I wanted to check it out. POP Pilates was developed by Casey Ho, she took the everyday fitness routine and created a time of not only fitness but empowerment. I absolutely LOVE her personality and create moves.

Currently, she is doing a superhero series on YouTube, you've gotta check it out!


Yoga with Adreine 
This is not the first time I've mentioned YWA, truth is - she's my absolute favorite Youtube Yogi! Her videos are perfect for someone who has never tried yoga before but would like to get into it. The way she effortlessly explains how to move from position to position is amazing and has truly helped build my fitness vocabulary, giving me con…

MARATHON MONDAY: WDW Marathon Training, Week 15

It's a long road, but it's worth it. Welcome to Week 15 of Marathon Training!  In case you missed my previous post, you can Read all about week 14 here! 
This week I started the 21 Day Fix again. I'm really trying to get a handle on my eating. I find that I don't eat enough of the right foods throughout the day, so I just don't feel my best! Something I do love about the 21 day fix eating plan is that it's spelled out for you. You are told (based on your personal weight) how many servings of proteins, carbs, greens, fruit, etc... 
I first did the 21 day fix in January of this year and had great results - check it out my results here! 
On Tuesday I did my 21 day fix exercise and ran on the treadmill for 20 minutes. I felt pretty good, no aches or pains and was pretty happy with my pace!

Marathon Monday: WDW Marathon Training, Week 14

Training Week 14Week 13.
it's getting real. 
We've hit the part of Marathon Training, where we regularly run longer distances than most people will ever imagine running. That's right, on Saturday I was scheduled to run 15 miles! - but before I jump into that, let me talk about the weekly runs. 
Tuesday, I did 30 minutes on the treadmill dressed as Marie. - It was so much fun! 
"You're not a lady, you're nothing but a sister" Dressing up actually makes treadmill running more fun! . . . . . . #tuturunner #tutu #marie #Epcot #wdw #wdwmarathon #disneymom #disneyig #disneybounding #disneyrunner #rundisney #runhappy @disneystyle @sparkleathletic #teamsparkle A post shared by StorybookErinšŸŽ  (@disneystoryerin) on Sep 26, 2017 at 10:50am PDT

Budget Friendly Beauty and the Beast Party!

Beauty and the Beast has such a special place in my heart. When it was released in 1991, I remember going to the movie theater with my neighbor to see it. It was such a big moment for me because it's one of my first memories of going somewhere without my parents or sisters.

For my birthday that year I got some Beauty and the Beast Sheets, that I still have and use. So, to say I'm fan of beauty and the beast might be an understatement.

I tried not to host a Beauty and the Beast (BatB) party for our daughters first birthday, in fact I really wanted to host a Fiesta and serve tacos and play Uno. However, my husband was completely not on board with the idea so we went with BatB.

Her name does have Belle in it... so it was the obvious choice!

If you are looking for specifics on how to save money on hosting a Disney inspired party, check out my Rapunzel party post, it's got lots of great tips and ideas. This post applies the same concepts, and will hopefully give you some inspi…

MARATHON MONDAY: WDW Marathon, Week 13

105 Days until the WDW Marathon My last Training Update In 105 days, I'm getting this Beauty!

I'm SUPER excited about it too!

I'm finding my groove again with Marathon Training, and am working to adjust my plan with our current calendar of events (Birthdays, Holidays, Life).  Once I settle on a plan, I plan to share it so I can be held accountable!

Although Miami was spared from a direct hit from Hurricane Irma, and the Lord protected all of us - the effects of the storm have really caused me to re-think how I'm getting my runs done. I'd planned to run my 15+ mile runs at Shark Valley. However, they are still closed due to the amount of trees to be cleaned up.  Speaking of trees and clean up... I can't even run on the side walks around my home because they are filled with piles and piles of branches. - It's really sad looking to be honest and i'm looking forward to every…

3 ways to ensure a HORRIBLE race

September 17, 2017 I attempted to run the Navy-Air Force Half Marathon, and literally everything that could go wrong did and there is no one to blame but myself.  I should have known better, especially after the Mount Dora Half experience... but I didn't learn.  So, here are my 3 ways to ensure a HORRIBLE race.  1. Neglect your Training.  I have EVERY excuse available: Three Small kidsHot WeatherHurricane Lack of SleepLack of Motivation.... However, if you register for a race, and want to have a fabulous time at the event. Do not neglect your long runs. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get out the door for a few long runs before the race and then we were trapped inside while #hurricaneIrma moved through my beautiful Florida so, I just wasn't as well trained as I was intending to be - and I paid the price for it.  
2.  Forget to Hydrate The day before this race we had the opportunity to go to an Air Show on base with our friends. It was an AMAZING experience, truly a highligh…
