Oh Hey Friday!

{Seems I forgot to schedule my post to go up this morning - whoops!}
I fully intended on joining the last linkup of the Summer Bucket List with Park Discovery, but I forgot the memory card to our camera the day we went!  Boo!  So instead, I'm joining September Farm for the Oh Hey Friday linkup.


1.  Once Upon a Time
Scott and I used to be avid watchers of this show but fell behind on some episodes.  Lately I've been binge watching season 3 and I love it!  It's so good, and I can't wait to see what they do with the Frozen characters in season 4! :)

2.  Harveys Sunbrella tote
It's no secret that I love Harveys purses, and this one is the next one on my wish list.  I've been a big fan of totes lately, especially given all the toys that seem to end up in there.  I love the bright colors, and palm print on the inside, not to mention of course that all these bags are made in California!

3. Share a Coke
I happened to find this the other day when I was at Target and snagged it on my way through the checkout.  My goal is to find one for my hubby, and maybe a few others too.

4.  Inside the Magic
One of the Disney podcasts I listen to is Inside the Magic to stay up to date on all my Disney news :)  Definitely worth checking out if you're a fellow Disney fan.  I've started listening to it from the very first episode, back when I was a sophomore in college, and still look forward to every Monday when I can listen on my way to work.

5.  My favorite person
I love spending my day with my little girl, and makes the time away from her during the rest of the week worth it.  She was saying 'night, night' when she put her head on her high chair tray, and can't go night night without Mickey!

Tech Tip Tuesday | iPhone series

A few weeks ago, I started a series designed to share technology tips and the response I received was very positive!  I don't plan on doing it weekly, but for sure a few times a month, so if you have any suggestions or something specific you'd like to see here, let me know!  Tweet or email me and I'll include it in this series :)

Tech Tip #2

I know there are many iPhone users out there (myself included), so today's tip focuses around that device.  Ever have issues with battery life?  There's a few things you can do to help extend it.  First, I'd suggest turning on the battery percentage icon.  This can be found under Settings - General - Usage.  This is much more descriptive than trying to decipher the little battery icon :)

Something else you can do is turn off background app refresh on certain apps.  Some apps will continually pull data in the background, and for things like your Mail, this is a good thing.  However, for me, I don't need Stocks and Pinterest continually updated, so I've turned those off (along with a few others).  Check what you have set via Settings - General - Background App Refresh.

Finally, you can get rid of currently running applications by double-tapping the home button.  Swipe any apps off the screen that you aren't using; this will help battery life, and also make it easier for you to switch between the apps you are using.

Happy Tuesday!

Friday Break

Aaand breathe - we made it to another Friday!

Not gonna lie, this was a tiring week, so today I'm taking a break from the linkups and random findings, and spending some much needed time with my husband and daughter.  So I hope you all have a fun, and relaxing weekend and get to spend some quality time with your loved ones.

Time to kick back with a vodka lemonade and watch some Frozen! :)

Christmas in July

A few weeks ago, I was lucky to be a part of a Christmas in July gift exchange with a few of my favorite bloggers, Jenny and Courtney, and it was so much fun!  

Jenny from the Chronicles of We had our name, so Reese and I had some fun opening up the package when it came.  

We opened the box to find some popsicle molds, a Minnie Mouse lunchbox, a princess flashlight, a sticker book, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, crayons, and a Minnie Mouse toy camera.  
Someone was very anxious to play with her presents :)

Reese absolutely LOVED the camera and has been playing with it non-stop ever since.  Plus, we received the sweetest notes from Jenny and her daughter, Callie, and even some cute notecards for myself! (Forgot to take photos of these, oops!)  

Thank you so much Jenny and Callie - we loved the gifts!  

To see what Reese and I bought for our friend, Jenesha, head on over to her blog to check out the reveal.

Happy Christmas!
