Disneyland 2017 girls trip!

About a month ago my best friends and I went on our (almost annual) girls trip to California! It was so much fun. We all took off from work a little early on Thursday for our 6pm Flight!

Our hotel was really cute and castle like, but the main perk was its 20 minute walk from the front entrance of Disneyland!

Thursday night we made some bad decisions like stopping at Wendys for dinner. haha and got some groceries for breakfast.

Friday morning we were up bring and early and literally sprinting to Disneyland. I was a little mad that we missed opening by 15 minutes... again. Getting places and through security always takes longer than you think. Soon enough we were in park and dreaming of a perfect day!

It was a lot busier than we were expecting, but that was probably due to the absolutely perfect weather. Sunny and 65. We took things a little slower than we normally do at disney, but still rode pretty much everything we wanted to (Pirates was closed so that was sad) and we ate dinner at the Blue Bayou! We got our reservations 2 months in advance and I am SO glad we did!







Food: We ate our way through Disneyland this year. Dole Whips, Churros, cream cheese pretzels, popcorn, corndogs (Megan), Fried Chicken, Caramel apples, cake pops, Dinner at the Blue Bayou (HIGHLY RECOMMEND) 








The rest of the weekend include Downtown Disney, the beach, lots of Mexican food, and 3 trips to Sprinkles. Trips always go way too fast, cant wait till next year!

Jackson Hole Weekend Getaway





















 For Christmas I gifted Travis a ski trip to Jackson Hole. If you know my husband well you know skiing is one of his passions and he has always wanted to go on a ski trip!

We left early on Friday for the 5 hour drive to Jackson. We listened to music and enjoyed the work free day. We arrived at our Tiny Cabin and were so charmed! I would stay again at the Fireside Resort in a HEARTBEAT. This place was so cute and cozy and it was nice to have a whole place all to ourselves.

We had planned on night skiing that night when we got there, but when it was -8 degrees we opted for a nice meal and cuddling by the fire watching a movie instead.

The next day we woke up early to ski all day at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. This place was INTENSE. Definitely the steepest runs Ive ever done and I only stuck to the blue! The resort was breathtaking and I loved that a bunch of the lifts had closed in gondolas.

After skiing we showered up and headed to dinner in Jackson. We had so much good food while we were here!

The next day we explored jackson town. This place is so cute!!! We went to this ADORABLE place for lunch, got delicious caramels and fudge from Yippie- I- O, walked around the shops and then drove home.

We are definitely planning to come back! Next time I would definitely take an extra day to add in another ski day.


2017 goals



Another one that has been sitting in my drafts for months! I absolutely love setting goals, and a new year always feels like the right time to sit down and assess how the last year went and where we want the next year to go.

This year I had 5 categories of goals that I documented for my own personal growth as well as some business goals.

Personal: 

Quality time- 
1. Stop watching tv every night after work, find new activities to do during the week together
2. Only work Monday and Wednesday nights and don't let it seep into every other night of the week
3. Invite people over for dinner!

Health- 
1. Start getting ready for be around 9:45 every night so I can get to sleep earlier
2. Formally exercise 3 times a week

Spiritual-
1. Read my scriptures every night
2. Attend the temple at least once a month

Financial- 
1. Get the full match on Travis' 401k add 5% to my 401K
2. Save at least 1/4 of our post tax income

Emotional- 
1. Read 52 books this year or one book a week
2. Take more pictures
3. Take one trip a month (even if its something small like a weekend getaway to St. George)

Monthly trip ideas:
January- Jackson Hole
February- St. George & California
March- Iceland
April- London
May- ?
June- San Fransisco
July- Caribbean or Thailand
August- California?
September- Washington DC?
October- ?
November- ?
December- ?

Business goals:

1. Grow instagram to 10,000+ followers this year
2. Be able to pay our mortgage with my profits each month
3. Find new ways to express my creativity through my business (photoshoots, marketing, etc)

Telling people about my goals and having them in a place where I can regularly be reminded of them is the best way I have found to stay accountable! I have them printed on my nightstand so I can see them daily! What are your 2017 goals?
