Jensey LOVES her Alice in Wonderland Doorknob!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3rd September 2016

Now that we’ve gotten our BIG little announcement out of the way, on to the fun posts. <3

The first thing I bought when we moved into our new home was a doorknob. But not just ANY doorknob. (Nate would add in here, “A $100 doorknob!”) which I would immediately combat with “A PRICELESS doorknob that only cost $80!” I’d been lusting on Pinterest for years now. I finally tracked it down to PropSculptor’s shop on Etsy- You can buy your own here. :) I bought it with the hopes of it being a nursery doorknob, but knowing if the kid thing didn’t work out, I’d find sooooooomewhere to put it. <3

I’m really impressed with the quality and it makes our nursery already seem so magical! The downside is that I was so excited to show our nephew Hallpants this amazing magical entryway to the room he stays in when they visit, and he was TERRIFIED! Like, didn’t even want to sleep in the room!!! Hopefully baby Root will have a different reaction and appreciate the nod to classic Disney! ;)

It was so easy to assemble and my *only* complaint is it took a while to find an easy way to open it since the face is where my fingers usually rest. But now I just open using the top half and no problems! And let’s be honest, I wouldn’t care if it was a problem because look at this thing of beauty!! <3

Jensey Loves Finding Pascal’s Friends

6th August 2016

One of my favorite recent(ish) additions to the Magic Kingdom is the Tangled area! As much as I wish they could bring back the Skyway, I was tickled to see that Disney put so much love and attention into what is now a glorified bathroom. The Tangled-themed rest area (which many have dubbed “Tangled Toilets”) is also home to plenty of benches and charging stations, all themed like the town of Corona with Rapunzel’s tower in the background. I love guests’ reactions when they realize this charming area isn’t a ride queue, but in fact, a glorified bathroom!

My favorite part about this area is something I didn’t know until our friend showed us: 10 of Pascal’s friends are hidden around this area! They’re tucked in the greenery, by the water, even on the building itself. :)

I’ve posted some of my favorites hiding spots here, hopefully not giving away tooooo much.

Happy hunting! <3

Jensey Loved The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights

30th July 2016

I can’t think of a better way to wrap up my little Christmas in July series than with my dear Osbourne Lights. Decembers won’t be the same without this show! :(

These are just a few favorite photos from our last trip to see the lights. I didn’t know at the time that it’d be my last time, which actually worked out for the best, so I wasn’t a blubbering mess leaving. We showed up, walked around holding hands, and took some photos, so I love that my last visit was truly like any other. <3

Jensey Loves The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

25th July 2016

In January, we had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to head to Lake Louise in Canada for the anniversary session of one of our past couples. What would have otherwise have been an out of the question idea ended up working perfectly since we were wrapping up our “snow” trip in Seattle days before the session!

Lake Louise is one of those places that photos just don’t do justice. No, not even ours. This first photo captures it perfectly to me, but the rest just don’t capture the magnitude of these mountains just two miles away. The day we showed up was so foggy we could barely see past this pine tree, so waking up to this view the next morning was something I’ll never forget!

The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise was nothing short of spectacular, and I’m so glad I got to spend a few nights in a place I’m certain inspired every Christmas song ever written. <3
