Valentine’s Decor

IMG_7406

We took our Christmas decor down over the first weekend of the year. During the process I decided that I wanted to decorate our mantel for the Valentine’s season. My second favorite seasonal decor to raid through at Target’s Bullseyes Playground are Valentine items (In case you were wondering what my personal ranking is – 1st is Christmas, 2nd is Valentine’s, and 3rd is Halloween). This year’s offerings did not disappoint. I love all the shades of reds and pinks together!

  • “I Love You Like Mickey Loves Minnie” sign is by me
  • “Mickey & Minnie Kind of Love” sign is by me
  • “Forever” sign is by me, the heart is from Target
  • “So This is Love” sign is by me, the heart is from Target
  • “XOXO” sign is from Target
  • “LOVE” arrow sign is from Target
  • I think the vases are from Fred Meyers, I bought them several years ago
  • Garland is from Target
  • The first Mickey & Minnie is actually a photo holder from Aulani
  • Mickey & Minnie Alaska Adventure is painted by Noah
  • Mickey & Minnie “and they lived happily ever after” is from Hallmark

That’s about it for our Valentine’s decor aside from a heart mobile that I hung outside. As far as what are we doing for Valentine’s Day? Nothing planned because we both prefer to save up for our upcoming Disney trips! =D

Hello, 2018!

 

We are 8 days into 2018 and guess what? I haven’t messed up writing or typing the year out yet. Haha.

Here are some of my goals for 2018:

  1. Continue to grow my side hustle
    I’m almost at 100 sales on Etsy! By the end of the 2018 I’d like to hit 225 Etsy sales.
  2. Continue the Keto lifestyle
    I started on my Keto journey November 6, 2017 and I couldn’t be happier! -19 pounds so far and lots of NSVs (non scale victories). I’m excited yet a little sad that my favorite pants (which I have 4 pairs of) are getting too loose to wear!
  3. Stop wasting food
    Just the other day we cleaned out our pantry and threw away so much food… It’s a big waste of money.
  4. Complete the Visual Communications Certificate from American Public University
    1 class almost done, 2 classes done,  and 3 more classes to go.

Here are some things I look forward to:

  1. MOVIES
    There are so many movies I look forward to seeing! Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Avengers: Infinity War, The Incredibles 2, Black Panther, Fifty Shades Freed, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Ralph Breaks the Internet, A Wrinkle in Time, Solo, etc…
  2. Colorado
    We’re going down during the summer for my mother in law’s wedding. I can’t wait to spend quality time with family! I’m also excited because it’ll be my first time going to Colorado.
  3. Disney Wonder & Disneyland
    We’re going to sail from Vancouver to San Diego on the Disney Wonder. I’m so excited because we sailed on the Disney Wonder in May 2016 right before she was reimagined. I can’t wait to see what’s new! When we get to San Diego we’re going to head to Disneyland for a few days. I’m SO EXCITED because the Halloween decorations are going to be up while we’re there. Plus we’ll be able to experience the new Pixar Pier at Disney’s California Adventure.
  4. Las Vegas
    We might spend our 7th year wedding anniversary (and TEN years of togetherness!) in the city we got married! I hope we can work this trip out, but it’ll just depend on our finances as we get closer. We both play myVEGAS Slots so I’m hoping we can make it affordable by getting a few free nights at a hotel and free meals.Quick rundown of myVEGAS Slots – It’s a free app you can download on your phone or play on a computer. You get coins and can redeem them for discounted/free hotel stays, meals and entertainment. It can take a while to build up enough coins, but it’s worth the effort. We’ve been able to stay at New York New York, Excalibur and Luxor for free. We’ve also gotten free meals at the Bellagio buffet and free tickets to a few shows. Like I said, it’s worth the effort!
  5. Disney World and Disney Fantasy
    This is our big trip of the year! I can’t wait to see Disney World all decked out for Christmas for the first time. I also can’t wait to sail on the Disney Fantasy on a Very Merrytime Cruise itinerary. What makes this trip extra special is that we’ll be Gold Castaway Cay Members (finally!) and we’ll be sailing on the first ship that sparked our love for cruising.

What are you looking forward to in 2018? I pray you’ll have a fantastic year full of laughter and new memories!

With Love
