Christmas at Disney

Happy Friday friends! In case you didn't realize it, we have TEN days until Christmas! EEK!

This week we checked off another item on my Christmas bucket list. We went to Disney to see all the Christmas decorations!

On Tuesday, we took the day off to go to Disney. We've been doing this for the past couple years. It can get real cray-cray at Disney on the weekends during the holidays and I ain't a fan of huge crowds. Going during the week is the way to go, kids are still in school and most people are working. . The weather was perfect with temps in the high 60's/low 70's and while there was quite the crowd, it wasn't too nuts.

We started the day of going to First Watch for breakfast. I 💗 that place.

Here are some fun shots I took of the decor down Main Street.


I wore my Dachshund through the snow shirt, of course. I received so many compliments do the shirt which I didn't expect. There are lots of Doxie loves out there!

After walking around the park, we headed over to the Grand Floridian for lunch at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Really, I just wanted to see the life size Gingerbread House.

They had a demonstration on how to decorate a gingerbread house. I got some good tips for when we decorate ours next week 😉

Lastly, a picture of my first pair of Mickey Ears! I know, I've been a Disney pass holder for years and I just now got my first pair. Honestly, these suckers are tight on the head. LOL But for the rose gold 😍, I am willing to bear the headaches for adorable they are!! Hoping they stretch out after some time. 

I am looking forward to this weekend. Lots of Christmas parties to go too! Have a great weekend!

Christmas Cards

This weekend was a very chill weekend for us. The Mr. has been sick and with the drop in temperatures, we decided to stay indoors on Saturday and relax. I took advantage of the down time to fill out our Christmas cards to send.

Every year, I tell myself that we are going to get pictures done so we can have photo Christmas cards. It never happens. -_-

I still wanted to send cards so I picked up these adorable ones from TJMaxx. I am a little obsessed with the whole red truck/car carrying a Christmas tree look. I have a lot of decorations with it. Too cute!

I wanted to be a little extra and purchased some cute washi tape to decorate the envelopes.

I tasked the Mr. to purchase cute Christmas stamps and he comes back with Mary and baby Jesus. Now don't get me wrong, I totally understand that He is the reason for the season, BUT I was hoping for, I don't know... ornaments? Wreaths? Something cutesy.

While getting ideas on Pinterest for the envelopes, I came across the site Zazzle where you can get custom stamps. I found some of the cutest stamps that I may purchase next year!




How precious are those?!? Wayyyy overpriced but totally worth how cute they are!

80s Roller Skate Team Outing & Work Holiday Party

A couple times a year, our team will have a team outing to break away from the day to day work grind and just have fun together. Well this team outing, my senior manager planned an 80's theme roller skating outing for our team. We had a pizza party and had the whole skating rink to ourselves for two hours. It honestly was my fave team outing to date! Took me back to my childhood days and the fun I had back then.... Of course, the recovery after skating did not take as long as it did this time around.

I was really worried about how my hip would do skating but I managed to skate the whole time and did not bust NOT ONCE! I can't say the same for some of the other gals there. There were a lot of airborne falls and some good bruising going on. Haha!

A full shot of my outfit.

Pink Tee Shirt $3 from Walmart, Orange tee and workout pants from my closet, black beads $1 from Walmart, and black mesh headband made with black mesh $1 from Walmart. 80's outfit on a budget!!

On Friday evening, we got fancied up and went to our work holiday party. We haven't been to one in a few years due to conflict with other plans we had, so we were excited to be able to go. It was at a new place, Armature Works, here in the area that is still under construction so that made things a little interesting.

I wish I had a better shot of my dress. I loved it and it was so comfy! I received soo many compliments as well. I got the dress from Macy's and the purse which I fell in love with as well from Charming Charlie.

Here are some other pictures I took throughout the evening...

Love this picture with my boo lookin' all dapper <3 He was a trooper cause he is recovering from some type of cold or flu and still managed to be in good spirits.

A couple champagnes in... we were feeling really good! Ha!

It's not often that we get all dressed up, so it was nice to throw on a fancy dress and some heels and dance the night away!
