The Nightmare Before Vacation

IMG_20131013_220358

Hello Everyone!

Cierra here, and today I’m going to be sharing with you the top 10 things that people forget when packing for vacation. Between my sisters and our parents we have all forgotten these items in the past. It is never intentional to forget something, you just sometimes have so many things to do and get done before leaving that they simply slip your mind. Anyways, having said that, we have found where all the Targets, Sams Clubs and any other stores we’re familiar with, within about a 10 mile radius of where we’re staying, haha!

  1. Toothbrushes
  2. Toothpaste
  3. Socks
  4. A Change of shoes. (I don’t care if there isn’t rain in the forecast; you take an extra pair of shoes because inevitably your shoes will get wet.)
  5. Pillows (My family and I take our own pillows, we don’t like to think of all the heads and hair, in various stages of cleanliness has touched the hotel pillows, yuck!)
  6. Lysol (Once again we like things clean.)
  7. Power Charging cords. (Luckily 4 of the 5 of us have the same brand of phone, so odds are one of us will have one that someone else can use.)
  8. Sunglasses (Can’t even tell you how many “souvenir” sunglasses have come home with us over the years.)
  9. Chap stick. (Whether it’s hot or not your lips on vacation could be completely dried out.)
  10. Sun block. (Always to forget to put it on, so we get to bring home beautiful red sunburn that turns into a nice peel, especially the scalp, fun times.)

 

Well those are the top 10 of things that we have forgotten. If you have any you would like to share, please do!

Have a great day!

Frappuccino Friday

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!

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!!!!

Motivation and Mansions!

Hi Guys,

2016-10-09 15.29.45

Sorry for the brief silence, Happy Haunts interrupted our tour, but we are happy to be back this week to our regular posting.

How is Monday again already? It seems like such a long week leading up to Friday and then I blink and suddenly, here we are again.

I will say that I am starting the week pretty motivated. One tip I will say helps a lot is prepping things on Sunday night. I know it seems bothersome, especially when I am winding down for bed. However, that 5-10 minutes of getting things ready for in the morning helps immensely. I think that is a tip that can be applied to both school and work.

2016-10-09 14.15.39

One thing keeping me motivated today is that we have officially booked a trip to Disneyland in September. That means Halloween decorations will be up and Pumpkin Spice Latte’s and Frapp’s will be available. Halloween at Disneyland and California Adventure is one of our favorite times of year and we are extremely excited to be heading there in a less then a month!

2016-10-10 12.34.46

While work is never necessarily fun, the idea that I am counting down the days till I am strolling down Main Street, riding The Haunted Mansion Holiday and seeing what new and exciting changes have been made in California Adventure, makes it a little easier.
