A Month in the Life: August 2016

Since I have moved back to Orlando, the days have been flying by at lightning speed! August was a fun month because there was a lot to celebrate, so many visitors, and a plethora of mini-adventures! This post is going to be a bit of a condensed version of all of the fun activities that happened during the second half of summer!

Let’s see, where to begin? Well, one of the major themes of August was visiting Sprinkles Cupcakes… several times a week. It easily became our favorite place in all of Disney Springs.

Bobby and I popped over to Animal Kingdom to see good ol’ Br’er Fox who was running around with his pal Br’er Bear at the entrance of the park. It was way too much fun going to visit those troublemakers!

On the 7th, we got to celebrate Krista’s birthday! We stayed the night at Disney’s Art of Animation resort in a Little Mermaid themed room which was mer-mazing!


(I hope you enjoyed that fin-tastic mermaid pun.)

It was Krista’s 22nd birthday so we got some special birthday balloons and had a photoshoot along the colorful walls of our resort building!

And you better believe that we listened to”22″ by Taylor Swift on repeat all day long.

We spent the day frolicking around Magic Kingdom, seeing Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire (the new castle show!), and spending some good quality time with the Hub Grass!

(In case you were wondering, my ears are from @brittsblossoms and Krista’s are from @FloofyArts. They were such a fun addition to our already magical day!)

On this day, Bobby and his friend Leighanne convinced me to go to Magic Kingdom in the blazing summer heat! We got to do my favorite Magic Kingdom activity of all time – ride the PeopleMover!


While visiting Tomorrowland, we stopped by the Incredibles Super Dance Party and rocked out with Mrs. Incredible for a few songs!

Then we finished off by grabbing some Dole Whip for dinner! I would say that was a very successful afternoon in the kingdom.

This was the day of the Ricky & Friends Living Structure house-warming party titled “Dream Along with Ricky and Friends!” It was a themed party based on all of the classic quirks we take part in when we go to the parks such as taking polaroid pictures, taking photos with the Purple Wall, and going to Starbucks! It was a very aesthetic party and it was so fun to celebrate everyone’s big move to Florida all together!

We planned this day specifically so we could experience Animal Kingdom at night! We went to the lounge at Tiffins for the very first time and it was so lovely. The bread service was delicious and the atmosphere was so relaxing – I am itching to go back!

August 23rd, 2016

One of my best Fairy Godmother friends came back to visit us from Boston, so this morning we got to have a Bibbidi Bobbidi Reunion at the Crystal Palace! Being all together again was just about as sweet as Pooh’s Puffed French Toast!

August 25th, 2016

On the 25th we went on a day trip to Tampa to see the Fifth Harmony concert! Earlier in the day, we spent time exploring Oxford Exchange and various coffee shops in the area.

August 26th, 2016

(Last one I promise!)

This was such a special day to me because we visited head quarters and got lots of love from Joy and sadness!  Those are hugs I will remember forever!

So, as you can tell by this post, August was an absolute whirlwind but I made some memories that will last a lifetime. It’s so wonderful and exciting to be back, and I can’t believe that this is only the beginning! I can’t wait to see what happens next!
