There’s A Little Turkey In All Of Us

Hey Everyone,

Happy Monday, I know Mondays are typically nothing to be excited but I still hope you all had a great day!

It’s almost Thanksgiving here in America and you we can officially let the Holiday season begin! Just like most of the world, The holidays are always my favorite time of the year. The magic is everywhere people literally sing in the streets!

The best part about this time of the year is that you get to spend it with family and friends and the people who mean the most to you!

To me, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because you get to express your love and thankfulness for each other! Its a time to reflect on the year and think about who and what you are thankful for. It’s not all about Turkey even though who could resist that much food!

Usually, I would post something like this on the actual holiday but for me, it was one of those Mondays I needed a little bit of optimism and thoughtfulness! Since this post is early I hope you all take the next few days to think about who and what you are thankful for!

For example:

I am thankful for every single one of my followers and readers, not only do I feel your love and support on a daily basis but you have become such good friends! Regardless of if we have ever met or ever will meet you all have become a huge part of my life! I wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

XOXO,

Michelle

Bubble Backpack

Hey Everyone,

Happy Monday! As you, all know when I find something awesome I just have to share it with all of you!

I recently bought Tonks a Bubble Backpack so she could join me on hikes and we can enjoy the outdoors together!

Today was our first hike, and we both had so much fun!

Tonks really liked the backpack she was able to look out the front as well as the two sides. And I felt that she was safe and secure so that I could hike without any worries!

The backpack is made very well; Tonks weighs 8 pounds, and the backpack had no problem holding her in safely!

I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors with their furry friend!

Here is the link if you are looking for the perfect carrier for your hiking buddy! #bubblebackpack:http://www.amazon.com/Texsens-Innovative-Traveler-Backpack-Carriers/dp/B01FNJWPOG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&keywords=backpack+pet+carrier

Cativersary

One year ago today Tyler and I found our little Kitty outside of our apartment complex! She was cold and hungry but so loving and kind!

She lived with us two days before we finally decided on her name! She took to us very fast and it was a relief when the vets gave her a clean bill of health!

She won the hearts of our friends and family, and before you knew it the lonely little kitty had the love of so many people!

People may say I am crazy for taking Tonks on walks in a stroller or for driving around with her in her car seat! But she has become like my child, we are there for each other, partners in crime!

So go ahead tell me I am crazy because I probably am! But over the last year Tonks has been with us through: planning a wedding, getting married, graduating college, holidays, and moving twice! That is a lot of bonding!

So here is to the last year, and to many more with my furry friend! We love you Tonks, you will always have a forever home with us!

 

 

Hello World

Hello Everyone,

I must apologize for my extended absence! I must say I have been a very busy girl, most recently I have started grad school!

I was offered a full assistantship! Allowing me to go to school as well as get a great experience of working as a Teaching Assistant, enabling me to teach classes, and do some real world hands on research!

I just finished my first week, and so far I have no complaints, it is so nice being back to school.

Me and Tyler also through a celebration of our marriage, a second reception! As many of you know our wedding ceremony was planned ver quickly and even though it was fantastic it was very nice to have a bigger party that all our friends and family could attend!

It’s been a crazy and fun summer!

I am hoping to get back to you all more regularly; I am going to make an honest effort! I miss all of my web friends! Let me know if there is anything you want me to touch upon in the next few days!

Talk to you all soon!

Lots of love,

Michelle

 

Ponilox

Hi Everyone,

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

 

Today I want to talk about one of the best products I have just recently tried. It is called ponilox. And it may just be the best hair product on the market.

 

I love it because it is easy to use, very quick if you are in a rush, and it looks great. Its perfect for travel, work or leisure! It really is ideal for any occasion.

 

All you have to do is twist your hair, insert the comb and secure the latch of the ponilox! Just like that you have a great look without the stress.

 

The key to why this product works is really in the design of it! It has the first and only patented French comb that curves perfectly with your head. The ponilox also has a barrette made with an elastic that secures your hair, so the style stays perfect all day.

 

The ponilox comes in many different colors so you can have one perfect for all occasions. Check out the link below to get your own ponilox!

‘Ohana Means Family

Hello Everyone,
I hope you all enjoyed your St. Patrick’s Day! I certainly did!
Yesterday was another magical day at Walt Disney World! In the morning we went back to ‘Ohanas but this time for a character breakfast with LILO and Stitch! This is the one place in the park you can currently meet Stitch and believe me it was so worth it! The food was great and he was adorable! 
After that we went to Hollywood Studios to experience more Star Wars and ride all the rides! We enjoyed Star Tours and the new Toy Story Midway Ride! The day was incredibly magical! 
After we spent the majority of the day in Hollywood Studios we went to Magic Kingdom to do dinner at the new Be Our Guest Restaurant! This was amazing it was straight out of the movie! The rooms were gorgeous and we got to meet our host the beast! 
We were able to get on to the Pirates of the Caribbean and It’s A Small World before the park closed! 
Can’t wait to experience all the magic tomorrow! 
Love you all,
Michelle

   
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
   

To Infinity and Beyond

Hello Everyone!
Yesterday when all the traveling was done and I finally arrived to the happiest place on Earth, Tyler and I ventured to Magic Kingdom “The Most Magical of all the Parks”!
 When we walked in, the parade was just beginning. It seemed to be a welcome to us as our favorite Disney characters waved and danced along with great upbeat music!
We made our way through the masses of people and arrived outside of Buzz Lightyear. This is a ride where you sit in a space ship and shoot a lazer gun at aliens trying to beat the person aside of you in the car! I take these challenges very seriously! Unfortunately, so does Tyler since he beat me!
After this we met Buzz on our way out and had a photo taken with him, after all he is BUZZ LIGHTYEAR!
We then explored more of Tomorrowland making it on to the People Mover, one of my all time favorite rides thats only purpose is to move people! I feel like its an honest ride no surprises or twists you get exactly what you expect. It is very moving LOL (puns).
We got to see the Monsters Inc Laugh floor, which always supplies good clean jokes that have everyone cracking up. For example :
    “What Kind of car do Disney characters drive? …… A Minnie Van” LOL
They never get old!
We got a small lunch since we would be having a very large dinner! Followed by walking around and exploring the new areas of the park! Like Ariel’s castle, The Beasts Castle, Rapunzel Tower! Oh So fun!
We ended the night with ‘Ohana. Yes, it means family but it is also one of the best restaurants Disney has to offer! It is at the Polynesian Resort and it’s an all you can eat family style masterpiece! Everything is fantastic, I had no complaints!
We had also picked the perfect time to eat at ‘Ohana because we had the most beautiful view of the Magic Kingdom Wishes Firework Show! The restaurant dims their lights and you get to hear the narration from Jimminy Cricket over the loud speaker!
Our first day truly was incredible! I’m looking forward to all the magic of tomorrow! Follow my Instagram and Facebook for updates in between posts!
Love you all,
Michelle
   
    
   

Where Dreams Come True! 

Hello Everyone!
Happy Monday! Today is finally the day, we are on our way to Disney World!!!!!!
We have made it through check-in, security, and now its all the fun of flying, landing, staying in NC for a layover then flying, and landing again!
I am so excited to get to Orlando that I feel like it’s been the longest day ever! I have my carry-on stuffed full with all kinds of goodies I mentioned in last weeks post!
I have eaten my way through Starbucks, Five guys, and Dunkin Donuts! And I am so ready for some fun!
On the plane we are watching WALL-E to help us get into the Disney mood. The moment we land I know I will be able to feel the magic!
When we land we will be taking the Magical Express to start the magic early! Then we will check into our hotel and head over to the park! Our dinning reservations are at the hotel tonight so we can pick any park! It will all depend on what we are feeling, and probably the length of the bus lines!
Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Twitter for updates during the day on our activities! As well as, checking my blog each day for a post about all the magic we have been experiencing! I am so excited to be given this opportunity to spend the week here and share all my experiences with all of you!
Love you all,
Michelle ❤

Happy Memories 

Hello Everyone,

I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

As many of you know I will be leaving for Disney tomorrow! 

So today I want to talk to you all about anticipation! Sometimes life seems to be waiting for a different moment! You can’t wait for a vacation, graduation, your wedding, or whatever exciting thing you are looking forward to! 

But what about the moments we are living now! I am a firm believer that we should make the best out of all life’s adventures so don’t just sit back and wait for your next big adventure enjoy all of the little ones on the way! 

And when you finally get to a big adventure make the best of it and take time to sit back and just absorb a memory! 

A lifetime is filled with so much happiness and magic! Sometimes we need to just step back and enjoy these moments… Before they become just happy memories! 

Don’t ever forget that the best thing about memories is making them! 

I love you all,

Michelle
