Disney Recap - Polynesian Resort Review & Rest Days

Untitled
Well, our Disney trip has come and gone and I'm already starting to think about our next trip... we go every other year and we look forward to it so much! Every year we stay at a different resort and this year we stayed at the Polynesian Resort, which had the best location of any other resort we've stayed at! We have also stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Beach Club in the past (we loved both of those, too!). 

In today's post I am going to share a little review on the Polynesian Resort and also how we spent our two rest days during our Disney trip. Our first rest day was the day we flew in and then we had another rest day midweek to give ourselves a little break from the parks. On our rest days we dined at Ohana, toured the Grand Floridian and enjoyed tea time there and we also did the Hoop De Doo Revenue at Wilderness Lodge... oh, and we did lots of swimming in the Polynesian pool!

The photo above was taken just outside the main entrance of the Polynesian, it is such a beautiful photo spot!

MyBirthdayWishList
Hey everyone! I have a big milestone birthday coming up in a couple of weeks and I thought it'd be fun to create a wish list. I think I'm getting excited about my birthday, even though I'm a little freaked out about the number. I am working on throwing myself a fun birthday bash with some family and friends. I can't wait! There is even going to be white, pink and gold monogrammed cupcakes! I've never thrown a birthday party for myself, just for the kids... so, this has been a lot of fun to plan with Brian.

I always like to keep breakfast fun and so sometimes I surprise my kids with something they aren't expecting. Recently, I made these Choco-Toast Berry Slab Pies
 that have a fresh and creamy layer spread over Kellogg’s® Eggo® Choco-Toast™ Chocolatey Chip with fresh berries on top. My kids love to munch on these individual pies during the hot summer months for breakfast or as a snack, they are so refreshing!

We love to grill during the summer! It means fresher dishes, less clean up and more time outside in the sun. Today I am sharing a recipe for Smoked Sausage and Beer Mac and Cheese, which is one of our favorite summer recipes. I have my husband grill the Eckrich Smoked Sausage Links while I whip up the delicious Beer Cheese Pasta that we add the smoked sausage to! It is delicious, affordable and such a perfect summer pasta to enjoy!

Ruffle1
What I'm Wearing:
Sam & Libby Neveda Bow Sliders - Target* | Renegade Cluster Bracelet - Stella & Dot* Layer Flounce Striped Skew Collar Blouse (Blue Stripe) c/o RoseGal |  Apple Watch* | XXLarge Initial Necklace - ONecklace.com | Coral Clutch - Old (Similar, Similar)* | Maui Jim Baby Beach Aviator Sunglasses*

On our recent vacation to Mexico, I noticed that everything I set aside to pack was either blue, white or blue and white stripes. It worked out great, because I could pack similar shoes and jewelry that worked with all the pieces! I may need to remember this the next time I travel. It was funny... because, my husband packed a lot of blue and white items, too! GMTA, eh? If you haven't seen my Mexican vacation recap post yet on the lovely Secrets all inclusive resort we stayed at, be sure to check it out HERE. I'll have another recap post (the last one) tomorrow. Today I'm sharing this lovely one shoulder ruffle top from RoseGal (it's under $20!). This style of top is so popular this summer, that I had to have one of my very own for my summer wardrobe.
