Things That Thrill Me

Happy Thursday, all!

As you can see, Things That Thrill Me Thursday has gotten a makeover! I’m thrilled with the new look and format as I believe it is more straightforward and easy for all of you to navigate. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

1. Great tips on how to make your cubicle or office suck less.

2. The easiest and most delicious fruit dip that I’ve ever seen. 

3. A pretty way to decorate a bedroom for winter.

4. The cutest ornament that will be purchased for Finley next Christmas.

5. This outfit that further fuels my obsession with winter pastels.

6. A recipe for banana blueberry bread – yes, please!

7. An online calligraphy class that I hope to participate in this year.

8. Hair color inspiration for my next hair appointment.

9. A DIY project to raise the height of our pesky front-loaders.

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
