7 Things Every Disney Fan Needs!

FullSizeRender (4)

Hey everyone, it’s Sydnee! As you guys probably know, we are major Disney fans. We are Disneyland Annual Pass holders, we RunDisney, we buy Disney, we are just Disney people. Disney fans need a lot of things ok well maybe not need but we feel like we do. Below are some things that if you have you are a major Disnerd and if you don’t you need to become a Disnerd.

  1. Minnie or Mickey Ears

We hope that this is a given since Minnie ears have become more popular than they used to be. Wearing ears that match those of the two famous Mouses that started it all, enhances the in park experience.

2. Disney Phone Case

Repping Disney on your phone at all times lets people know what kind of person you are. When other Disney fans see it they will want to talk to you and if non-Disney fans see it they will know to stay away. My phone case is a Princess Leia one that says “Join the Rebellion” I got it from Star Wars Launch Bay in Disneyland. The cool thing about customizing it is that you can put your name on it to establish superiority among all of the basics. Just Kidding, but seriously get a Disney phone case from the park or amazon.

3. Disney Bracelets

These bracelets can include a cute cuff one that I want so bad or the classic Alex and Ani’s. Bracelets can also include those leather ones that you can get engraved at a few different places in the parks. Our favorites are Alex and Ani’s, I think between the three of us we have about 20-25.

4. Disney Bag

Maybe it’s a purse, a suitcase, or reusable bag but it’s still Disney and that means it’s better than any other plain old bag. Other bags might as well be potato sacks in comparison. I don’t have one but the other two have a ton of Disney Dooney and Bourke’s they’re expensive but worth it.

5. Mickey Waffle Maker

We know that everybody loves the Mickey waffles from the park but having a taste of them at home is good too. Ours don’t taste half as good as the ones at Disney but  it’s mickey shaped which means it tastes better.

6. Disney Shirts

Whether these are from the parks or a small shop orr you make them yourself, Disney shirts are a must for everyday life and park days. My favorite Disney shirt right now is my gray shirt that says “I Live in Fantasyland”, this shirt is from the park and it’s pretty accurate because I love books so I feel like I’m in a fantasy world more than the real one.

7. DISNEY MUGS

I’m pretty sure every mug we own is Disney. One of us usually comes home with a Disney mug after each trip, it’s a serious issue but we can’t stop. If you too have too many Disney mugs please join our support club by following us and telling us about your addiction, we can’t help but we can support you by also having the same issue.

Thank you so much for reading! If you have anything to add let us know in the comments!

 

 

 

 

Frappuccino Friday

FullSizeRender (3)

Good Afternoon! Today officially marks the day that Pumpkin Spice is back at Starbucks! If you’re like us and you love fall, our favorite flavor coming back so early is not an issue. When pumpkin spice is back at Starbs, that usually means other fall flavors are out in various different things.

Halloween Oreos-  Omg so these Oreos are basically the same as regular Oreos as the orange filling is only food coloring but somehow they TASTE SO MUCH BETTER! We can’t really explain what makes them so good, it’s probably just that fall is our favorite season and once these are back we know cooler (or somewhat cooler #AZProblems) weather is in our horizons.

Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt- This year will be our first time trying pumpkin spice yogurt. The past few years we couldn’t find any but it looks like Chobani hopped on the Pumpkin Spice train and we’re headed on a journey to Halloweentown wearing our UGG boots and leggings.

S’mores Candy Corns- We know it seems crazy but these are so much better than the classic candy corns. Like pumpkin spice, S’mores seems to be availing as a popular flavor and we’re here for it. Although it is sad that the S’mores Frappe is gone from Starbucks we have our PSL and these delicious candy corns to hold us over.

These are just the things that we bought at Target today so we thought we would share it with you! If you’re as excited about fall as we are talk to us in the comments!

Have a great Labor Day weekend and Happy PSL day!

Hello Everyone!

 

I hope you are all doing well! Cierra here and I just wanted to give a little update of what’s coming in our tomorrow’s, hence the title.

Lindsey: Currently working on her last semester for her bachelor’s. She’s also flexing her Girlboss muscles at work.

Cierra: Just sent in my application for my 6th semester of my bachelor’s program and trying to deal with some work changes.

Sydnee: A month into her junior year of high school and constantly training in figure skating.

Collectively, we are all very excited to be heading to Disneyland in just a few weeks to experience Halloweentime. This and Christmas is our favorite time at Disneyland. We’re still training for the superheroes half marathon weekend infinity gauntlet challenge. Lindsey and I are excited to go back to the farmer’s market for my bake shoppe (www.cierrasbakeshoppe.com). Plus all of us are so excited for fall! Two of the three of us have already put up our Halloween decorations and we don’t care who knows it! Haha!

We hope you are all having a wonderful week and we’ll talk to you soon!

Soaring Around the World: Travel Bucketlist

Hey guys! It’s Sydnee! Today we thought it would be fun to share our travel bucketlists with you! Fasten your seatbelts and let’s go!

The gorgeous island of New Providence in the Bahamas.  San Francisco Feelings - SF by @thefullfrxme

Lindsey’s top two places that she wants to visit are the Bahamas and San Francisco, California. Both are really cool places. Our family loves all things tropical so the Bahamas would be a perfect vacay. As for San Francisco, they have the original Ghiradelli Chocolate Factory, nuff said.

London, England  Get a famous Voodoo Doughnut in the heart of Portland Oregon. Voodoo Doughnut, Southwest 3rd Avenue, Portland, OR

Cierra’s top two places she would like to visit are London, England and Portland, Oregon. London looks like such a beautiful place and Harry Styles is from England so it makes sense. Portland has a ton of coffee shops and Voodoo Doughnuts so it was obviously made for coffee loving hipsters.

What to Do in Boston: The Perfect 3-Day Itinerary - Small town charm meets big city hustle in this New England capital. Boston is choc-a-block with historic landmarks, killer Italian eateries, topnotch shopping, and quaint cobblestoned streets. Here’s your ultimate weekend guide.  Edinburgh, Scotland

My top two places are Boston, Massachusetts and Edinburgh, Scotland. Boston has everything, they have a big city, the ocean, a preppy sense of style, and my dream university. Edinburgh has castles and tons of book shops so I feel like it was made for me. I would also like to ride a horse, shoot arrows, and let my reddish blonde hair flow in the wind like Merida from Brave.

Thank you so much for reading! Where would you go if you could soar anywhere in the world?

I’m gonna take us out with some High School Musical!

 

What I’m Obsessed With… Today At Least

2017-08-24 16.58.24

Hey Everyone!

 

Cierra here, and today I thought I would share with you what I’m currently obsessed with. If you are an avid Michael’s shopper like my mom and I, you have probably come across these amazing stamp sets.

They are apart of the Everyday Value program that is currently going on within the store. Currently they have 4 different kinds of everyday reminders and social media icons. However, I was very excited to see that they have a Halloween set. I couldn’t resist! This makes me very hopeful that soon a fall set will be released and then after that…Christmas!!

They also had a few different ombre inspired ink pads but they also have a set of different color inks mixed in with the stamp sets. I love these stamps and encourage you to try them as well!

 

Have a great day!!

Top 10 Disneyland Moments

IMG_0209 (2)

Good Morning! It’s Sydnee here this fine Tuesday and since we have a trip to Disneyland coming up pretty soon I thought I would share my top Disneyland moments, this basically means those moments that make you happy and make your Disney trip 10x more magical.

  1. Getting FastPasses then getting to use them almost right away

This happened quite a few times on our last trip, we ended up walking by the ride when FastPasses were still available and you could use them within 5-10 minutes. I’m not the most patient person so you can imagine my joy of getting on some rides rather quickly.

2.  When the line for a ride is short so you can go on it more than one time in a row

This doesn’t happen often but when it does it is truly amazing. Sometimes late at night we all go on Indiana Jones and we see that the line is short so we can hop the rope or walk back around and get in line again. Not everyone goes, it’s usually just my dad and I but for Indiana Jones being a favorite ride of mine and my dad’s I’d say we get pretty lucky when we get to ride it 2 or 3 times in a row.

3. Getting Starbucks and Riding the Train

I’ll admit that rushing to all the rides is a tiring experience so getting on the train is a relaxing “ride” that lets you rest up for the rest of the day especially if you close down the park like we do. Before we got on the train we get some Starbs so we can rest and literally recharge with some much needed caffeine.

4. That feeling when you’re upside down on California Screamin’

California Screamin’ is my favorite ride. Rollercoasters are definietely my thing and I practically live for that upside down feeling. On Screamin’ it’s different because you’re in the happiest place on Earth, I love all of the views from those high points and being able to go fast. I think I like being up so high because I’m closer to Thor on Asgard.

5. Sitting by the window over by Radiator Springs Racers at Flo’s V8 Cafe

Eating my cars waffles and watching Radiator Springs Racers zoom by is the ultimate morning experience. When you sit over there you also get to watch Mater and Lightning McQueen go by as they make their way around Cars Land. Not only are the views amazing but the waffles and just the overall atmosphere of Flo’s.

6. Raining in Disney

Some people don’t like the rain and that’s fine but I love rainy Disney days. It drives some people away so it is a little bit less crowded and walking on Mains Street or waiting in line for Pirates is my favorite thing to do on rainy or cloudy days in the park.

7.  Waiting in line for Big Thunder Mountain during fireworks

I love watching the fireworks with the wildest ride in the wilderness in the background. Riding the ride while the fireworks are going on is also pretty spectacular but it doesn’t happen often.

8. That first bite of a churro

When the churro is still a little warm and the cinnamon sugar hits your tongue just right and it’s soft a gooey and amazing and it reminds you of all things right in the world. Yeah I love churros if you can’t tell and the whole thing is great but the first bite is especially magical.

9. The smell of Pirates of the Caribbean

I’m not sure if some of you find this gross but I love the smell of  the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. I’m pretty sure it’s the water and it’s probably just dirty and muggy but I don’t care. I’ve been on this ride a million times and the smell has become kind of a comforting and familiar smell. Not saying I want the house to smell like it but I miss it sometimes. Sorry if this is weird.

10. Seeing it decorated for Halloween or Christmas for the first time that year

Disneyland is one thing. Disneyland decorated for Halloween or Christmas is a completely different thing. My Disneyland experience is enhanced to the max when it is decorated for either holiday. My love for Halloween and Christmas is so strong but add Disney in that mix oh geez I’m going to explode with holiday cheer and it’s only August. My favorite Halloween addition is the pumpkin on Main Street and all of the pumpkin flavored treats. My favorite Christmas addition is the tree on Main Street. MY FAVORITE HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS ADDITION IS.. DRUM ROLL PLEASE ………………………………..

THE HAUNTED MANSION HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the Nightmare before Christmas so seeing it come to life during the Haunted Mansion Holiday is a pretty mind blowing experience. My favorite addition to the ride is the Gingerbread House that changes every year, I can smell it now…..

Thank you so much for reading! Let me know in the comments what your favorite Disney moments are!!!!

Travel Tuesday: San Diego Day Trip

IMG_2173

Good Morning everyone! Sydnee here…. Again. We’re kind of slacking on blog post ideas at the moment so I thought I would share what we did on our recent one-day trip to San Diego, California. All of the pictures her were taken by me.

The day started out early… 5 am early but we wanted to get a full day there. Once we got there we basically spent the whole time finding somewhere to eat we had some places in mind but they were too crowded so we had to keep driving, but that wasn’t such a bad thing because we ended up by Scripps beach where Lindsey and I took a quick ankle dip in the water.

IMG_2202

(Blogger moment for me (right side) you can see my camera lense lol)

\From there we just decided to go to an old favorite to eat. Point Break Café on Shelter Island has some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. It is a quirky little café across the street from the ocean that has amazing chocolate chip pancakes. We got lunch there for the first time on this trip and let me tell you that burger is my best friend. It was cooked perfectly and it was the perfect size, the perfect size in burger language is “can barely fit it into my mouth” perfect. The fries were also really good so our whole family recommends this cute little restaurant in the heart of Point Loma.

IMG_2241

After that we went to Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institute of Oceanography. It was really crowded but I still enjoy reading and looking at the cute little marine animals. My favorite thing is the view on the outside pictured here is the pier we were by in the first picture so we’re pretty high up.

IMG_2258

\When we left Scripps we headed over to Seaport Village so we could do a little shopping and then have dinner before we left. Cierra and I both bought Tervis cups from the Tervis store (our guilty pleasure). Her cup has little donuts on it so it matches her blog planner and I got a Toronto Maple Leafs one because hockey season is coming up! After the Tervis store Lindsey and I headed to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront so we could get Starbucks, we both got Java Chip Frappes. Almost right after the Frappes we went to our favorite pizza place, Assagio’s Pizza Pasta Plus. They ran out of breadsticks (still salty about it) but the pizza was pretty dang good and the best way to eat pizza is by the ocean.

IMG_2298

After we ate, it was time to head out so we got in the car to head back home to the heat. Did I mention that it was 70 degrees the whole time? Well it was and I loved it. It wasn’t a long trip by any means but it was nice to spend a day by the ocean then have Sunday to get ready for the week ahead. As they say, a Saturday at the beach is better than a Saturday at home! I’m not sure who says that or if that’s even a things but I like it! Thank you for reading I’ll see you back here next Tuesday!

Keep Calm And Have A Cupcake

81017.jpg

Hey Everyone!

It’s Cierra and today I’ve decided that we have earned a cupcake. We made it past Wednesday, now we’re on that weird day standing between you and your weekend and you have done so well. You got out of bed today, if you really overachieved and got dressed you earned extra sprinkles, so go you! And to help with the possible guilt of having a cupcake, I’m sharing with you a recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes, so you have to work for your reward. So without further ado:

Cupcakes:

  • 1 1/2 Cups AP Flour
  • 1 1/4 Cups Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 1 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk
  • 2/3 Cup Oil
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs

Heat oven to 350 Degrees F. Line 2 (12 cup) Muffin tins with cupcake liners. Set aside. In large bowl, blend all ingredients until moistened. Divide batter evenly among cupcake liners. Bake at 350 Degrees F. for 20 to 25 minutes.

Frost as desired and enjoy!!!
