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
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
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
