About StorybookErin

In December of 2011, my husband and I made a deal that when the new year came we would walk together and try to lose weight. At the time we were both at a very unhealthy weight and needed to get active.
January 2012, we began walking each morning and eating healthy. One thing led to another, and we found ourselves RUNNING and training for the Princess Half Marathon. After we ran the Princess Half Marathon in February of 2013, we were completely hooked on running. So in love that we registered for the 2014 Goofy Challenge (half marathon on day 1, full marathon on day 2). Shortly after we registered for the run I found out we were expecting our first child.
We welcomed baby girl number one and began training for the Walt Disney World Goofy Challenge once again. Shortly after our training began, we found out that we were once again expecting and we were completely thrilled! I continued to run and train and ran the 2015 Goofy Challenge at 5 months pregnant with baby number 2.
After finally getting the hang of balancing wife life, motherhood and running, we learned that once again we were expecting. Another beautiful baby girl.
Now that we are more settled, I am once again training for the Walt Disney World Marathon, chasing my weight loss goals so that I can be the best wife and mom I can be to my amazing family. Our family enjoys exploring new places, going on adventures, planning parties and being together. We hope you find our warmth and inspiration when you come to visit our little piece of the internet.

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'…
