Favorite photos from a whirlwind trip to Walt Disney World

A couple of weeks ago I shared our favorite photos from the Walt Disney World Festival of Fantasy Parade.

Today I thought it would be fun to share our favorite photos from Walt Disney World. Even with only a few hours to play in the park we had so much fun. There is just something magical about a visit to the Magic Kingdom.

We spent our time at the park taking pictures and meeting up with some blogging friends who also happened to be in the park….

Crock Pot Kielbasa and Sauerkraut

This recipe for Crock Pot Kielbasa and Sauerkraut won rave reviews when I served it to John and his Mom. We had John’s Mom over for lunch to try a few of the recipes I have been working on.  It is always nice to have a 2nd taste tester in the house.

I love my Husband but some days he will eat just about anything. I like knowing that other people have tried the recipes before I share them with all of you :-)

Plus as a bonus I can send home a ton of leftovers with John’s Mom to make room for more things in the fridge.

We have been on a crock pot recipe spree lately and the fridge is a bit packed. I am loving being able to stock up the freezer with a ton of food John can easily heat up if I am not home.

My #WishforOthers this holiday season and into the new year

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Capital One. All opinions are 100% mine.

When Capital One asked me what my Wish For Others was I had a hard time putting my wish into words. How do I express a wish that is emotional and not tangible. 

I have been trying to figure out how to write this post for a few days. I struggled with putting into words my wish and how to convey it.

As some of you know we are currently in Kona, Hawaii. This is our happy place in the world. A place we are so comfortable in we can just relax and go with the island vibe. We don’t have to stress about a schedule, worry about what to do or any other pressure while we are here.

Tonight we were watching the sunset in one of our favorite places on the island and it hit me what I really wished for.

I put together this video to share some thoughts on my wish that I hope convey the wish in a way that makes sense :-)…
