Rock Your Disney Side: Our Adult Only Trip to Walt Disney World

DisneySide1

My husband and I just returned from our first “no kids” trip to Walt Disney World.  It.was.so.fun!!!!  It was a different kind of fun-we love Disney with our kids-but this was a hand holding, no stroller pushing, eat where we want when we want, and ride Dumbo together kind of fun!  While I’m hanging out with the Disney Social Media Moms on the Road in Philadelphia, I’m going to share how my husband and I Rocked Our Disney Side!

Princess Jewelry Hook

Princess Jewelry Hook #princessroom #littlegirldecor #silhouetteamerica

Princess….I think that should be Natalie’s middle name.  I mean, really.  She has two older brothers, she is the only girl we have, and she loves anything and everything sparkly and shiny and girly.  I personally wouldn’t have it any other way!  So, for her birthday, we did a little room makeover.  We wanted it to be “princessy”, but not Disney princess.  You should all know by now that around the Hurst house, we love us some Disney travel, movies, music, and magic.  BUT, believe it or not, our house is not-nor will ever be-“Disney-fied”.  Including the kids’ rooms.    So, playing with the princess theme, I created this Princess Jewelry Hook so Princess Natalie can have her jewels within easy reach and they won’t get tangled in her jewelry box.

Ten Things I’m Always Glad I Pack for Disney World

Cinderella Castle

Packing for Walt Disney World is an ongoing event in our house.  About 6 weeks before we leave, I start “soft packing”.  I start picking up items at the store, make a rough list of items I don’t want to forget, and start setting it all aside in the designated corner of our bedroom.  And let’s face it, it allows me to make lists.  I don’t think I could survive without a list, and a packing list for Disney is one of my FAVORITE ones to make!  So let me share with you the Ten Things I’m Always Glad I Pack for Disney World.
