I’m finally back and boy, it was a long, but super fun week! I have truly missed y’all and glad that I decided to take a real break from the blogging world. Sometimes, you have to take a step back to re-energize and this break was just what I needed. Our trip to Disney, was so fun and we made incredible memories that will last a lifetime and I can now share with you. We are so blessed to have been able to go to Disney so many times since Knox was born that he has actually been more times than he is in age. When Knox was approached and given a Make-A-Wish, I immediately knew that my little three year old would ask for something Disney oriented, and Disneyland it was. What kid and adult doesn’t love the allure of the magic that is associated with the theme park that makes dreams come true? It will tire you out, frustrate you with all of the people, but at the end of the day, to see that smile and laughter on the face of your child is worth its weight in gold. The reason we keep going back as many times as we possibly can.
Since we have had so many Disney experiences, we have found out some of the best tips and tricks that I want to share with you that will hopefully help you plan your next Disney experience. My sister is a Disney planner extraordinaire and I am a Pinterest junkie, so between the two of us, we have figured out some valuable info that I will share with you! I am currently in the midst of putting together a Best of Disney video VLOG that will become the first video on Crockpot Empire’s YouTube channel. YAY! My plan is to start doing many more videos, but time has not been on my side, as of late!
I was glad to get back and celebrate Becky’s 38th birthday (you can read more about her here). She finally caught up to me and she won’t let me ever forget that I will be the big 4-0 before her, which is right around the corner! Eek. We have been celebrating her birthday’s with her family at the “fire restaurant” as the kids call it, ever since we were in high school BK (before kids!). Being able to celebrate her and our friendship with our children and her family makes me so grateful. We have so many memories that we will always share, and now our babies get to do the same with one another. So, what’s a girl to wear to a best girlfriend’s birthday celebration other than this off-the-shoulder chambray wide leg jumpsuit, statement earrings and some chic heels?! I have gotten so many compliments on this insanely adorable jumpsuit and 0ff-the-shoulder is all the rage this season. I have stocked my closet with some of the cutest off-the-shoulder numbers and have been wearing them all summer and when I saw this jumpsuit, it was so fab that I knew it was a must have. I was a bit worried about the fit, but I think it’s perfect. I am wearing a size small for reference. I paired it with blush today, but the possibilities are endless with this one! You will definitely see it again on Instagram styled differently, so make sure you’re following me @crockpotempire
