HELLO!

Hello Friends!

I am linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals (one of my fave bloggers) for SHOW AND TELL Tuesday for Reintroductions!

 

My Name is Jennifer and welcome to my own little fairytale.

This is me betternew pic

but lets be honest this is actually what I look like most of the time

jens phone April 2015 587

I love, LOVE and give all of mine to the two men in my life, my very own Prince Charming, Ryan and my sweet son, Timothy.

jens phone April 2015 108

They are my whole world and I can’t get enough of them. I am a wife and stay at home mom.  I live in the sunshine state!   I love to paint, draw and create. AND COFFEE is my drug of choice!  I also have a dark side where I love to watch trashy reality TV, drink wine and gossip with all my friends! Oh and I’m kind of messy, but most creative people are, RIGHT?

Did I mention I’m obsessed with ALL things Disney!! Walking down main street USA and seeing the castle still can bring me to tears and I have been there over 200 times. Also I have secretly always wanted to be a Disney Princess or at least Alice, and I know that is every little girl dream but I just never grew out of it.  With my love for Disney I have also become a RunDisney wannabe!

Timothy started Kindergarten this school year and its been a whole new season in life. I never thought it would be so different but it totally is!

This is it! This is my life! Welcome to it!

fairytale quote

SO also in this post you are suppose to talk about resolutions, well I am terrible at resolutions so I break GOALS down into monthly Goals. I feel like its more attainable for me.

This month its about just being BETTER

A better mom, wife, friend…..a better version of myself!

I am also doing Lara Casey’s Power Sheets so I will be blogging about that next week.

Bring on 2016!

Ryan got a call from work so he had to head back to the hotel to log in for work and Timothy and I headed off to one more ride before heading back to the hotel too!

20151123_130542-1.jpg

20151123_131848.jpg

I knew Ryan still had a little bit of work to do so I took Timothy to the arcade and it was a blast!

After some rest at the hotel we were off to the Magic Kingdom! I am obsessed with Disney World especially at Christmas time!

He knows what to do, he has been to see Belle one or 30 times HAHA

Timothy never took a nap in the afternoon so I have no idea where all this energy came from, he is normally in bed by 8:30 but he was still going STRONG AT 10:30PM! I couldn’t believe it!

HI Everyone!!!!!

I hope everyone had a fab Thanksgiving, I wanted to do a little picture recap of our Disney Trip!

Enjoy🙂

 

20151122_151356.jpg20151122_151427.jpg

We got in on Sunday and made it to Hollywood Studios, it was a little rainy but that wasn’t going to stop us! Timothy is always amazed how big the trees are.

 

20151122_151447.jpg

Always posing!

 

20151122_161020.jpg

Everywhere we went Timothy pointed out all his site word and tried sounding out words to read.

 

20151122_161227.jpg20151122_161244.jpg20151122_164001.jpg

Everyone is so excited about all the Star Wars stuff coming to Hollywood studios!

First time meeting Santa Goofy, Timothy told Santa Goofy everything he wanted for Christmas!

 

20151122_184809.jpg

Then it was off to the Osborne Family lights! I still cant believe that this is the last year, this has been a tradition since 2006 for Ryan and I. I did shed a tear or 100!  I am hoping that maybe we can make it there one more time before they take it down.

It didn’t take long for this guy to fall fast asleep. We still have the stroller for Disney (even though he is getting too big for it) But its better then having to carry this guy around!

I love a family selfie!

Ill be back tomorrow with more Disney pics!

October Goals

octobergoals

Now that school is back in and we have more of a schedule in place I started another month of goals!

onehalloween

Jog 100 Miles in October! I want to get back to jog/running. I want to get back to Disney to earn some more bling! We have a ton of stuff going on so I know this is not going to be easy to get 100 miles in but I am up for the challenge!

TWOHALLOWEEN

I just want to enjoy everything more! This is always a goal, I don’t like that I have to remind myself about it, but I when I do it makes me slow down and take a deep breath and enjoy! We have a lot of really fun things we are doing this month, and I want to take it all in!

#clearoctober

I follow Lara Casey and this month and she is using October to stop and focus on being bright, free, and certain! I am all about this!

THREEHALLOWEEN

This one speaks for itself!

wpid-screenshot_2015-09-01-10-51-12-1.png

That’s it, three simple goals to achieve this month!

These are perfect to start getting back into the swing of things. Using my Power Sheets and my tending list to make all these goals into reality!

XOXO

JEN

P.S.  October is also my B-day month!!!!

What we are eating this week…

I made Plant Hollywood’s Captain Crunch Chicken, I remember when I was little on one of our many Disney trips going to Planet Hollywood and having Captain Crunch chicken, then my mom making it a couple of times when I was growing up. I was feeling nostalgic and thought I would give it a try.

I totally forgot to take a picture of it, but it was super tasty!

You can find the recipe HERE

What I’m reminiscing about…

It’s no secret that I love a good costume. Honestly I can’t believe tomorrow is October, and now that Timothy is older and is deciding what he wants to be for Halloween I am thinking about all of his costumes that I was able to guide him into choosing haha

He still hasn’t decided what he wants to be yet….so we shall see

What I’m loving…

My Whitney English Day Designer by BlueSky

If you follow me on instagram you know I am a planner junkie, when Timothy started school I really wanted to start with an Academic planner to follow the school year. This just happened to be the time when Whitney English said that she would be doing a collaboration with BlueSky for Target. Well…. I was all over it! I was using the Simplified Planner from Emily Ley, and I love that planner but for 19.99 at Target I couldn’t resist that price point! So I went for it, and I am so happy I did! I did purchase the daily planner, I like to write all over the place so I need a daily just for the room. It has goal planner sheets in the front, Saturday and Sunday share a day, and Monday through Friday looks like this

What we have been up to…

School is in full swing and Kindergarten is going great!

Timothy had a rocky start with some crying, well a lot of crying! Once School started our lives have been all about school, T-ball, and trying to have fun along the way!

Last year I tried to take a pic of Timothy everyday, when Timothy was born a coworker (a much older gentleman) named Charlie told me how lucky I was to live in a time when we could take as many pictures of our children that we wanted.  He said, “They change so much everyday and you want to be able to remember as much as you can, so take pictures all the time, take pictures everyday!”

Well it was awesome advice and I definitely take picture-taking to the extreme! But I love every minute of it!

What I’m dreading…

I am going to be 33 years old this month, I love my birthday but I dread all the physicals and checkups…basically going to the doctor in general.

What I am working on….

Well, I am the room rep for Timothy’s Kindergarten class, so I have been busy working on all the ideas  I have for the students this year.

Also I have been working on the blog, I have been busy writing some Disney posts that I am hoping my peeps will find helpful when planning their vacations!

What I am excited about!

I am always excited about all the activities that go along with month of October, our town has different festivals, we go to the big pumpkin patch, and of course Halloween, but adding to it is all the fun school activates we will be during for Fall!

This is from last years pumpkin Patch!

What I’m listening too…

Oldie but a goodie

I found a bunch of old CD’s from when Ryan and I first got together so I have been listening to all the songs over and over again! This was my favorite, I was surprised it still plays, I listened to it sooooooo much!

T-Ball, Bridal Shower, Town Festival and my favorite, getting out all my fall decorations!

Kindergarten is no joke, so we have been practicing everyday trying to make everything fun so Timothy stays interested, this was something fun I got off Pinterest to help with his site words
