What I Ate in Disneyland!

What I Ate in Disneyland!

The last time we went to Disneyland I was eating pretty strict Paleo.  I didn’t really splurge on much other than the pineapple whip which was extremely disappointing.  This time I knew that I still wanted to keep things healthy but wasn’t going to freak out if I splurged on a few treats here and there.  Especially after seeing so many amazing posts on all the great food there was to eat.  Pregnancy excuse?  Maybe a little 😉

I still packed tons of healthy snacks and things to keep us from number one, not spending too much money, and number two, still eating some healthy foods.

Monday when we arrived, we went straight to Downtown Disney for lunch.

Disneyland Day 2

Disneyland Day 2

Hi there!

So when I left you last we had just ended our first day in Disneyland.  We all went to bed early so we were nice and rested for our first day in the park.

Disneyland Day 1

Disneyland Day 1

Have I ever told you guys that I didn’t go to Disneyland until I was an adult?

I went to Disney World when I was in college but it wasn’t until just a few years ago that I went to Disneyland for the first time.   I have to admit that when we were there in May I kept wondering what all the fuss was about.  It was so overcrowded and we spent more time standing in line than we did doing anything else.  The magic was there but it just wasn’t like I had expected, even with The Love Nugget with us.  We decided to go again this year because we knew with the baby coming we probably wouldn’t return for a few more years.  Plus we wanted to do a fun trip with The Love Nugget before his world gets flipped upside down.  So we planned a few days in February when things are supposed to be much less crowded.  THIS, was a huge winning factor to our trip.  There were so many fewer people there that it truly made for a much more enjoyable trip.  That plus the fact that The Love Nugget was so much more into it this time than last being that he was a few years older.  His excitement just leading up to the trip was enough to make us anticipate the day more than we thought we would.

Like I said we planned our trip for early February and also chose mid-week which we knew would make for fewer people.  We left bright and early on a Monday morning to make the 6 1/2 hour drive to LA.  I know some people are probably thinking we’re crazy for driving but it’s really not all that bad when you leave early enough to miss traffic.   Along with The Love Nugget, we had my mom and mother in law with us which made for a more entertaining drive.  We arrived at Disney Grand California just after 12:00 and dropped off our bags to go explore Downtown Disney.

Planning our Next Adventure with Discover it Miles Card


Even before we had kids summer time meant travel time for us.  Which is mainly because I was teaching and once school was out, we were itching to get out there and see the world.  Once I became a stay at home mom we planned our vacations for whenever worked best and were able to score some pretty sweet deals in the off-season.

Marvelous weekend getaway!

Marvelous weekend getaway!

Okay so I know it must seem like we drink a lot with all my wino posts.  The past few months we’ve just had quite a few wine events and trips that have been so much fun!  However, we don’t drink much during the week if at all so are okay with splurging a bit on the weekends.  Plus until I’m preggers I’m going to enjoy it while I can 🙂

It just so happens we got to enjoy another fun wine trip this past weekend in Napa.  So I’m joining Katie and sharing a bit about our marvelous weekend getaway!

Smooth Traveling with a 3 year old

Smooth Traveling with a 3 year old

You guys I don’t know if I told you how good our traveling experience was with The Love Nugget.  Of course we knew it was going to be easier than traveling with a much younger child but had heard horror stories about traveling with kids.  Tantrums on the plane, screaming in the airport, accidents in public, we had heard it all and were having nightmares about all the horrible things that could happen.  Luckily, none of those things did and actually The Love Nugget was so great we received numerous compliments on how well-behaved he was.  Someone even said, “Wow, you guys must fly all the time!”  Nope, first time 🙂

Was it pure luck?  Nope.  I made sure to be overly prepared in order to ensure our trip went smoothly.

Travel WOD’s and a Family WOD

Travel WOD’s and a Family WOD

I know some people are against working out when they go on vacation.  I am not one of those people.  I’m a morning person and typically awake before the rest of my traveling companions so if I like to do something productive while everyone still sleeps.  Productive and enjoyable for me. Exercise!

I love getting to explore new gyms, fitness centers or towns on foot while getting in some good fitness time.

As you know we recently took a little vacation to Hawaii and the fitness room was one of the first things I checked out upon arriving.
