When Mom Comes to Town …

Happy Wednesday, folks!

Well, if it wasn’t a short week already due to the Labor Day holiday, my mom is coming into town today to stay with us for a few days!
I’ve never had the opportunity to host her in my own home, and I’m looking forward to taking her around my new city – on the agenda is visiting the Dressing Downton exhibit (a second time for me!), hitting up the Oshkosh outlet mall, and enjoying a lot of fun, mother/daughter bonding time. Be sure to follow all our shenanigans on Snapchat @msinthemidwest!

That said, I’m taking the rest of the week off to soak up all the “mom time” that I can get. I’ll be back to regular programming next week.

Have a good one, everybody!

@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

Do you ever experience quiet moments of total content while on vacation, no matter where you are?
  • Catalina Island is nothing short of enchanting. ☀️ #catalinacasino #vacationmode #frommyview

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
