Disney’s World of Pandora

by

I got the chance on Sunday of opening weekend to visit the new world of Pandora inside Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. There has been a lot of news about Pandora and how amazing it is. There has also been news that it is crazy crowded and will have huge wait times. I went and I survived without really having to wait at all. In this post, I’ll give you my advice, tips, and reviews to visiting the amazing world of Pandora.

Winter Weekend in Chicago

by

What to do, where to eat and see during a weekend in Chicago during winter.

Chicago is a wonderful place to visit for a weekend trip. It is easily accessible from just about every airport and for many midwestern states, it is an easy driving distance. Chicago is around 4-5 hours from where we live. I was born just outside of Chicago, spent a summer in college working there and my husband went to undergraduate there, so we both know the city well and this made it an easy decision for us when we were trying to find a city for our one-year anniversary trip. Not to mention the amazing (more…)

Nashville Hot Chicken Recipe

Try the Nashville Craze at Home with this Hot Chicken RecipeNashville Hot Chicken…..

has been around forever. However, it just recently became a craze. I grew up in Nashville and while I remember people referencing hot chicken, I don’t remember it being a thing until after I graduated high school. I’m HUGE fan of anything spicy, so I’m shocked I never had this dry rubbed spicy chicken sooner. The company I worked for out of college had the Nashville hot chicken restaurants, Bolton’s, vend at their music venue. Part of my job was working with the vendors. After telling the owner, Mr. Mathews, I’d never tried hot chicken he gave me some. I was hooked from that moment on. Shortly after this, hot chicken took (more…)

Packing for a RunDisney Trip – Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend

by

Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend is almost here! Everything is booked, the trip planning is complete, the race outfit is ready to go, my training is almost over. It’s time to start planning what I will pack. When it comes to packing, I either over pack by a substantial amount or I under pack by a substantial amount. I stress over every item I put in my bag and have nightmares that I forgot half of it. This stress is even worse when it comes to any of my Disney vacations. Packing for RunDisney events is no different. * This post may contain affiliate links, if you make a purchase after clicking these links we will be compensated.

Anyone that knows me can tell you that I love all things, Disney. As a very girly little girl, I loved princesses. Dressing up as Cinderella for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom is possibly my favorite childhood memory. When my husband and I got engaged there was only once place I could imagine having my bachelorette party, Walt Disney World. Disney World makes a wonderful destination for a bachelorette weekend. There is an abundance of things to do, more restaurants than you can count and if you haven’t been since you’ve been a child, you might be surprised to know there is plenty of nightlife. *This post may contain affiliate links, we will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on these links.

Things To Do In Playa Del Carmen

by

The Rivera Maya is one of the most beautiful places in the world. We took our honeymoon six months after our wedding. This gave us time to research destinations and find an affordable and gorgeous beach destination. After we settled on Playa Del Carmen, I immediately began researching activities and quickly found that there are more activities than you can do in one 7 day honeymoon. For the majority of our vacation, we focused on relaxing and spending time at our all-inclusive resort, but that does not mean there isn’t plenty to do outside the resort walls.

Snorkeling

Things to do in Playa Del Carmen - Snorkeling

This first activity we did on our vacation, besides lounge by the beach and pool, was snorkeling. The Rivera Maya has one of the largest coral reefs in the world, The Great Maya Reef, and the snorkeling is fantastic. I have been snorkeling before, but this was my husband’s first experience and it did not disappoint. We swam along the coral reef with hundreds of fish, sea turtles and sting rays. Two bucket list items, swimming with turtles and sting rays, were crossed off my list in one day!
