Disney World | Part One!

We got back from Disney a week and a half ago and guys.....


WHY DO I NOT LIVE THERE. I have always been a life long Disney lover. My very first movie in the theaters was Little Mermaid and I remember it so clearly. I dress my kids in character Disney clothes and chose to spend my 19th birthday there where I got to take Anthony there for the first time ever in his life. It's just always been a huge love of ours and our babies. 

But leaving this time? I did not want to go. At all. Not even a little bit. And I usually love the coming home from vacation part as much as I love getting ready for one!

And maybe I was Googling "old lady cast jobs" at Disney World on the plane ride home.  (Fairy godmother? Totally!)



It was just amazing and I can't say enough good things about it. I was stressing majorly about it before hand. The packing, the planning, the Hazel. But everything was so smooth and perfect. Except the bus service. That killed my soul a little everyday lol! We are already planning our next trip where we will most definitely stay at the Contemporary so we can walk right over to the Magic Kingdom!

Speaking of Magic Kingdom, my girls were hilarious because when they think "Disney" they think the castle. So whenever we ventured to Epcot or Animal Kingdom.... we weren't in Disney in their minds. Which is both hysterical and maddening considering how much money put into those park hopper tickets!

Daddy got picked to be the knight :) How fitting!




This was also our first time going at Christmas time. And the castle at night!? I cannot even put into words how many times I would just stare at it saying "It's so pretty!" I seriously felt like a child, but it was magical you guys.  m a g i c a l.

We stayed at Art of Animation which was the only reasonably priced hotel that could fit all 5 of us! Especially when Hazel still needs her own space. Harper and Quinn both shared a bed which was ..... interesting :) Adorably cute, but definitely not ideal! Especially for two girls who have always had their own rooms!

I'll do a few posts of pictures because there are so many. (And ps. The Memory Maker?! Totally worth every single penny!)










I'll be back with some more photos this week! 

Because school's out and WHAT AM I GOING TO DO.

Loving all the fall things.

We've had a busy couple of fall days so I am spending today doing absolutely nothing and trying to meal prep as much as I can. It took me almost 8 years of being married to realize that if I spend all of Friday doing a l l  t h e  l a u n d r y and all of the cleaning then I can actually enjoy the weekend so much more. So here's to that!

On Friday we spent the day with our favorites hitting pumpkin patch #1.

It naturally started with an attempt of a kid picture.


But Hazel had other plans. Like always. 






It was such a beautiful day and the kids were so pooped, it gave me a double nap time that I had been praying for! Woohoo!

Saturday we got to celebrate this little cutie turning 4! 4! I seriously can't believe Baby Brody is 4. 


The weather could not have been nicer and even though Hazel was running on one short nap, the kids did great! 

Did anyone else snag an entire cold weather wardrobe for their kids during the Cat & Jack sale?!







On a funny note. If her face can fit in it... she will stick it right in haha!


See?



My love for goats gets stronger every year. Seriously I just want a tiny goat and pig and that will conclude my farm life that I so desperately need. And a horse. 






WHAT KIND OF BROWN EYED PEOPLE HAVE KIDS LIKE THIS?!






We somehow managed to count about 78 pumpkins when we go home, so I see a ton of painting and carving in our future! This weather has been so amazing, and even though its going to hit 80 a few times this week, I am soaking it all up as much as I can!

But this weekend?! A definite fall win.

One Last Summer Hoorah

We took our annual trip down to North Carolina and got back a week ago. Pretty sure it's taken me the entire week just to get back to "normal". I don't even know what normal is, but pretty sure were finally getting there. We left on a Sunday and the Friday before I was fortunate enough to get to go away for a girls weekend. I can't write this post without saying how much needed and grateful I am for the group of women I got to spend the weekend with. Man, if it just doesn't feel so good to laugh, drink and share stories that make you feel like you aren't really sucking ass at this whole motherhood thing.


We usually drive through the night so the the girls can sleep the entire way there, but being that Hazel has never slept away from home, we decided that getting somewhere new at 2am and having to put that child down would not go over so well :)

So I got back bright and early from girls weekend and we headed out a little before lunch time. The girls did so good on the drive down. We stopped to grab some lunch and let them stretch their legs and then we made it (all with a 30 minute Hazel nap) right at dinner time. It was perfect. 

The next morning? All we wanted was the pool :) I am so proud of this little fish this summer and how far she's come. Quinn and her cousin Sloane could have been in this pool all day, everyday.  





The beach however? Is where I could spend the rest of my days. Anthony doesn't understand my love for literally lying on the beach all day long. And I am happy to watch him in the water with the girls. 





This one. I don't want to say she was the best behaved this week....but she was the best behaved this week ha! We really, really got to enjoy her and her sweet personality and it was much needed in between Hazel tantrums and Quinn's sass. 













By far, my favorite picture of Anthony. 
































This was by far one of the best weeks we've had in NC. We got to spend some time with family we don't get to see a lot and it was awesome. With 4 kids in the house it was actually amazing. And I am missing that view everyday since!

But now it's October. So bring on the pumpkins and hot coffee and boots!
