I showed my bug-out-bag aka 72 hour emergency kit on my Instagram stories a while back and a bunch of you wanted to know what was in it. Well, I FINALLY got around to writing it up. It’s kind of a beast though, just warning you! In my defense, it’s pretty thorough. I mean, I researched this for awhile. Please, do yourself a favor and save time, by using this post instead 😉[Read more…] about 72 Hour Emergency Backpack
At the tail end of summer, we decided to fly down to Los Angeles for a week and take a road trip down the coast. We hadn’t planned any major traveling this summer so it was nice to getaway and plan some summer fun! And I’m finally sharing the trip with you guys – I know a bunch of you wanted to know our itinerary and where we visited![Read more…] about Southern California Road Trip to Universal Studios with GetAround

We decided to fly down to Southern California last week for our summer vacation and of course, if I’m in SoCal, it’s pretty much a given that I’m going to Disneyland! And with the recent opening of Galaxy’s Edge, there was no chance we’d miss out on that!
I was pretty concerned that the park would be ridiculously crowded, especially with Galaxy’s Edge just newly-opened, because July is the peak of the summer. But luckily the park wasn’t as busy as predicted. In fact out of all the times we’ve visited recently (trips in March, May and June) last week’s visit was probably the least crowded! I’d really recommend taking a last minute trip to Disneyland if you can swing it this summer!
We had a packed itinerary consisting of a road trip and some serious beach time, so we only had one day to spend with Disney (usually we spend at least 3 days there). So I went into full on research and planning-mode, determined to fit everything we needed into that one day. At the top of the list? Galaxy’s Edge![Read more…] about Disneyland and Galaxy’s Edge in 1 day
Ever since our last trip to Mendocino, Ryan and I kept saying we should really come back without the kids. Traveling with kids is always fun, but sometimes it’s just so nice to sneak away and leave the kids behind, wouldn’t you agree?[Read more…] about Designer Destination | The Brewery Gulch Inn
A few weeks ago during spring break, we decided to do a very stereotypical thing for spring break…We went to Florida! Where did we go in Florida? No, not Disney World, no, not Miami, no, not Ft. Lauderdale. We went to Rosemary Beach. Now you may have that blank look that most of our friends gave us when announcing our destination. Or if you’re from the Mid-West or the South you’ll know EXACTLY where. Rosemary Beach is a lesser known beach destination on the gulf coast (commonly referred to as the Emerald Coast) or inner coast of Florida. There’s a tiny little strip of a highway called 30A rolling through a bunch of gorgeous little beach towns each with their own distinct personality. We mostly spent our time in Rosemary beach and it’s gorgeous cousin, Alys Beach, just a hop, skip and a bike ride down 30A.[Read more…] about 36 Hours | Rosemary Beach Florida
Tis the season for visiting friends and family both near and dear and near and far, so what better time to stock up on everything you need for a safe and comfortable road trip? I’m even eyeing some of these finds to enhance my daily commute! I love the combination of #1 and #11 for keeping trash in check in the front seat and back. Items #10, #14, and #16 can take you from cramped car to pretty picnic in no time and would make perfect gifts for any adventurer. #6 is a must-have for anyone navigating, and #2 would be the cutest (and most useful) stocking stuffer. I’d love to hear where you’re headed this holiday season and what you’ll be bringing along!

Most of you have heard of the Konmari method and the every minimalist’s bible: The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Ever since reading the book a few years ago, we regularly “konmari” everything in the house. It’s such a simple and easy way to keep clutter to a minimum.
When we moved, I thought I would use the konmari method to help make the whole moving process easier, not only before moving but during the move as well!
A couple of weeks ago we took a quick trip for Arden’s 7th birthday. The destination? Well, where would almost any 7 year old tell you they’d like to go for their birthday? Yep, DISNEYLAND.
We decided to surprise her, which was the most fun ever. I packed a bag with a bunch of new Disney-themed goodies (see the packing list below) and had her open it to guess our destination. As you can imagine she was pretty ecstatic! I think I love Disneyland just as much as she does so…we were all pretty happy 😉
We’ve been to Disneyland quite a few times and I thought it would be fun to share with you my favorite tips and tricks to help save you time and money (and your sanity) when planning a trip there. Because believe me, it makes a huge difference on whether your trip is one to remember or if it will make you never want to visit the “happiest place on earth” ever again.
