Animal Kingdom:  It’s Not Just a Zoo (Disney Pt. 2)

Animal Kingdom: It’s Not Just a Zoo (Disney Pt. 2)

Posted October 20, 2018 in Real World // 4 Comments

Animal Kingdom is the Disney Park I’ve tended to skip when we were in Orlando.  I went when they first opened, but have almost no memory of the visit.  We went to Busch Gardens instead when we went to Orlando in 2013, but this time… I wanted to go to Animal Kingdom. My husband had never been, and I wanted to revisit. I am so glad we did. Animal Kingdom has its own kind of magic and vibrancy that’s different from the bustle of the other parks.  A lot of care has gone into the details – which is the case […]

Epcot:  Disney’s Hub of Tech & Culture (Disney Pt. 1)

Epcot: Disney’s Hub of Tech & Culture (Disney Pt. 1)

Did you know that Epcot was never intended to be a theme park? Walt Disney was enamored with human innovation, and when he first envisioned the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, he saw a suburban living area where humanity could come together in the name of advancement.  It was to be a community for technology and innovation.  Think Eureka.  But when Walt Disney died in 1966, the plans were abandoned because honestly, what corporation wants the responsibility of an entire city? In the 1970s, Magic Kingdom had become so popular that the company wanted to expand and add another park to the […]

Lords and Ladies, I Present: King Richard’s Faire

Lords and Ladies, I Present: King Richard’s Faire

Posted September 22, 2018 in Around the World, Real World // 2 Comments

Y’all may remember that back in June, I was bemoaning the fact that I had missed ren faire season.  May and June are prime time for a lot of the smaller renaissance faires in New England because there’s no point in competing with all the county fairs in the fall. That is, of course, unless you are a Really Big Renaissance Faire.  There are a couple big ren faires within driving range of where I live, and my husband and I have been toying with the idea of hitting up King Richard’s Faire in Carver, MA for a while now.

If You Are Reading This, I am at Disney World (BRIEF HIATUS)

Hello my beautiful monsters, how are you on this glorious Saturday morning? If you’re reading this when it goes live, I’m aboard a plane and Disney bound! Matt and I went to Disney back in 2013 as adults, and discovered that Disney is a totally different experience as an adult.  We don’t have kids, but I’ve heard that a Disney vacation can be really exhausting for the adults when children are running amok?  For that, I’d like to say a great big thank you to my mum and dad, who took us not once, but twice when we were younger and are some […]

What If.. You Put Oreos Inside a Chocolate Chip Cookie? (+ Recipe)

What If.. You Put Oreos Inside a Chocolate Chip Cookie? (+ Recipe)

Posted August 14, 2018 in Real World // 4 Comments

Hey guys! It’s been nearly a year since I posted a recipe on this blog, which is silly because Matt and I cook things from scratch all the time and honestly, what’s better than the house smelling like fresh baked cookies?  There are quite a few treats in our regular rotation, but today I want to share a recipe with you that is one of my husband’s favorites. He recently made these for a work potluck, and they were a huge hit.  They’re always a huge hit because who can resist an Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookie? Honestly, even if it’s not your […]
