Girl's Weekend Getaway in the Outer Banks, North Carolina


*This post contains affiliate links.
When I was pregnant with Benjamin, my best friend, Candice, and I went on a road trip to Washington D.C. On our way back to Atlanta, we traveled along the coast and happened upon the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I honestly had never heard of OBX before that trip, but from that moment on, we've been wanting to take a vacation there. 
When I got back from visiting California this spring, I immediately suggested she and I go on vacation for her birthday weekend. We got to planning and on Wednesday she flew in. It's a 10-hour drive to Southern OBX, where we were staying. Our plan was to get up and leave at 5 a.m. on Friday. After some drama getting our car rental Thursday evening, we ended up leaving directly from the another rental place at 11 p.m. She and I drove until around 4:30 a.m. before stopping to sleep in the cab of our rented JEEP at a rest stop. It wasn't the most comfortable sleep ever but all part of the adventure!

Autotrader Private Screening of Disney PIXAR's Cars 3 Movie and Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land


Thank you, Autotrader, for the invitation to your Cars 3 event! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
"Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn't through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage!" 

Last night we had the opportunity to join the Autotrader family at a private screening of Disney PIXAR's Cars 3. You can see their brilliant television spot, here. I actually didn't realize beforehand that the movie was in 3-D and it was a first for Benjamin. We all thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and without giving away any spoilers, here are 3 things you're going to love about Cars 3, too:

Introducing Disney Classics to Little Ones Before Visiting Disneyland + Recipe


While visiting California a couple of months ago, Benjamin and I were able to have a mommy & son date at "The Happiest Place On Earth". If you've been following for a while, you know how much we love Disney and jump at every opportunity to visit one of the parks or share our #DisneySide at home. As Benjamin gets older, I have treasured each and every new park experience we've had. This trip was fun because I got to introduce Benjamin to the OG of Disney Classics: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

* We received complimentary Park hopper passes. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Talk about a magical break! As soon as we walked through the tunnel into Disneyland, Mickey Mouse himself was arriving to meet and greet guests. Benjamin was able to share high fives and thumbs up -- and looked terribly cute doing it. I am totally framing this!
