Princess in Training

Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Aurora, & Ms. Piggy!

What do they have in common?

... Well, you will probably find pictures of look-a-likes plastered all over Instagram, Twitter and Facebook in just about 21 weeks.  Why? The Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon.  Can you believe it?  We are about 21-ish weeks away from my very first 1/2 marathon. I'm SO excited.

Princess Training
Yesterday was my very first official training. In order to properly document, I asked my darling husband to take a picture of me.

As you can see, he took a BUNCH. Actually, he took more... I just didn't think I should post 25 pictures of me dancing around my living room as a "warm up" before my first run.

Seriously, sometimes I forget i'm a grown up. ...

 How about you, have you started training yet? 

In addition to training, my husband and I have continued to walk our pups an average of 2 miles each morning. If you work a full time job, and love spending time with your spouse, I highly recommend a morning walk.  I find myself much happier when I've spent the first 45 minutes of my day walking with and talking to my love. We also eat breakfast together (which he cooks). So, if you are looking for ways to spend more time with your spouse, set that alarm for 5:00 a.m. and go for a walk!

The oral surgeon finally called me today and I have scheduled my surgery to remove my wisdom teeth. I'm terrrrrrrfied. ... I actually start to panic when I think about it. There is something about the thought of the word "procedure" that FREAKS me out. ... AAHHH.  Okay. I'm a grown up, I can handle it. I know the Lord is going to take care of me and I know my husband is going to be the best care taker. ... So, nothing to worry about right?  If you think of me, pray for me.

Graduate School
Tonight we had to leave church early so that Mr. Handsome could come home and finish up some homework. He has 1 year left until he has his Masters in Nerdarian  (I mean, Library Science) ... Unfortunately, he needs to record a video ... and ... well. ... I can't seem to keep the pups from running up and down the stairs. Seriously, I think my dogs are louder than kids.

Any tips for keeping dogs quiet?

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

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…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
