MARATHON MONDAY: WDW Marathon, Week 13

105 Days until the WDW Marathon 

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 everything being cleaned up.

You can read our #IrmaStory here. 

So, let's chat for a bit about my training runs. After a HORRIBLE 13.1 in Washington D.C., I was eager to get back out there and shake off the negative feelings about running - So, in true Taylor Swift Fashion, I just had to shake, shake, shake it off. ;-)

 I wasn't able to get my run in on Thursday, because I was doing last minute prep for our daughters first birthday. So I knew I had to get my Saturday run in! After everything was semi-cleaned up, and our family headed home I dressed in my green Sparkle Athletic skirt black shirt and headed to the treadmill for four miles Disney Bounding as Kim Possible!


I was quite pleased with my runs this week, but I'm running out of costume ideas.

So, leave me some comments about who I should dress up as for some upcoming runs!

Have a great week everyone, and continue to pray for those recently effected by natural disasters.

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'…
