Ginger Vitality 5-ml
Ginger Vitality for fall is such a nice treat. Still want to hang on to some of those zestier, summer-like recipes? Use Ginger Vitality in a marinade or a salad dressing. It’s also great to experiment with in your culinary ventures. Remember though, a little goes a long way! Plus, Ginger Vitality is great in a tea for helping calm your stomach and support healthy digestion.

KidScents SniffleEase 5-ml
Whether your kids are in school or not, it’s inevitable, they’re going to try and bring the sniffles home with them from wherever they might go. SniffleEase to the rescue! Diffuse it at bedtime or whenever they need it or add a few drops to a warm compress and put in on their chest as they relax. Even if you don’t have kids, this is a great one for adults too!

Inner Defense – 30 softgels
Game changer for anytime you need that extra immune support, like when the seasons change. This is not a daily supplement, but when you’re starting to feel run down or you feel something trying to come on, take Inner Defense! You need this in your life. SO good.

Raven 5-ml
Need something a bit heavier duty than SniffleEase? Raven will step up to the plate and help you with your breathing needs. Ravintsara, Eucalyptus Radiata, Peppermint, Lemon, and Wintergreen provides a refreshing blast of easy breathing and inspiration. Diffuse it or rub it on your chest with a carrier oil. There’s a reason this is in the Premium Starter Kit now, because it’s an essential blend we all need.

MultiGreens – 120 capsules
The extra stress on our bodies as our immune systems start to work overtime can leave some of our other systems in need of support. MultiGreens can help with your glandular, nervous, and circulatory systems to keep your body in tip top shape as we head into colder seasons. This is especially important as our dietary choices change and we’re eating fewer fresh vegetables. Get your greens!

Supplement and oils all coming together to make that transition from summer to fall so smooth that the only thing you’ll notice is that you need to put on a sweatshirt because it’s not a million degrees out anymore. This is such a great combo of products to get this month. What are you most excited about? Are you going to double up on some and put some of these products in your qualifying order or are you going to get other fall oils and supplements? Let us know and have a great September!

Tokyo Disney

Our Disney Tokyo Trip

This past year we had the privilege of going to Tokyo Disney. It was a dream trip of ours that we thought wouldn’t happen anytime soon. Our kids had never traveled internationally and it had been a while since we had either. One morning, I came across Tim Trackers video of Tokyo and how his wife and him planned there Disney trip. I decided to use their tips and start looking to see if we could do it. I should mention we had already made reservations to take a trip to Disney World and budgeted around $4,000 for that trip. After crunching all the numbers, I found for around $1,000 more we could go to Tokyo and stay for longer. So we took the leap and booked our trip. To hear all the details of how we booked everything you can watch out planning video.

About 2 months after booking our trip, we were packing and getting ready for our adventure. So our adventure began!

We arrived in Tokyo pretty exhausted but happy to be there safe and to get our first look at Japan and our hotel.

Our trip to Tokyo was at the end of October. This is a special time to visit as the locals are very into dressing up for Halloween. They take dressing up Disney to whole other level. We really enjoyed seeing everyone dressed up and grabbed many pictures with them.

Our first day at Tokyo Disney and we were very impressed with the extremely friendly people and absolutely beautiful park. This park had a very familiar feel to Disneyland in California. This made our kids feel comfortable as they slowly got to experience some of the Japanese culture mixed with their familiar Disney friends.

Day 2 in Japan and we headed over to Disney Sea. If you’ve heard anything about Disney Sea you have heard it is AMAZING, and it did not disappoint. It was everything we had heard and more. Nothing like any other Disney Park we have been to. If you only have one day in the Tokyo Disney area, go here.

Day 3 we did some park hoping between Disneyland and Disney Sea. This is super easy to do with the Monorail pass. I will share more about this in my videos, as well as the best passes to get.

Over the weekend we headed into the city of Tokyo to do some exploring. This was very overwhelming for the kids. The crowds, the hustle and the unfamiliar feeling. We did a little sight seeing and tried to avoid some of the big tourist areas after we saw the stress it was causing them. Hopefully as they get older they will feel more comfortable with these things. Even with all of this we had a lot of fun, made some great memories and saw some amazing sights.

Day 6 I had a tooth act up that I had no idea was a problem and unfortunately we spent a lot of time at the hotel. We did go down to the pool and that was an interesting experience. I talk more about that in my hotel review video. Definitely not your typical experience.

Day 7 was COLD and wet. However. It was our only day that the weather wasn’t good so we really couldn’t complain. It was a short day at the park as my tooth was still hurting (Ended up needing my wisdom tooth pulled when we returned home.) and the weather was a little chilly.

We finally got to check off one of the rides we had heard lots about. The Winnie the Pooh ride, and I have to say, it did not disappoint. A definitely must do if you plan on going. The fast passes go first thing in the morning

One show the kids loved getting to see for the first time and my husband and I got to reminisce over the as the Country Bear Jamboree. We went to that one a few times over our 6 days there. I finally got a recording of it in the video listed above. A lot of it was in Japanese but a lot was un English too so it was a perfect mix that we enjoyed a lot.

Our last day we headed over to Disney Sea first and tried to check off our last few wishes to get done there. We experienced our first ride failure and had to get off. It was a little funny since we had no idea what they were telling us to do. But we made it off safely and continued our adventure. However I ran out of battery so that was the end of recording, sorry. However, we did get a couple more pictures so I will share those with y’all.

One of the things we enjoyed while there was the food. From new things we had never heard of or tried to classics with a Japanese twist added.

I put together this video of some of our favorite snacks and treats as well as our food tips for where to eat.

I hope you enjoyed following along our Disney Tokyo Adventure. We really hope to be back soon and hopefully, hit up some of the other international Disney parks in the near future.

Here is the complete playlist of our adventure from the announcement that we were going, to the last tip, like which rides or shows you must check out because they are so different from Disney California. Enjoy, and let me know if you are planning on going. I’d also love to hear in the comments if you went to Tokyo Disney your best tip. We sure hope to use them on our next trip there. Thanks 😁😁

Spring Decor Home Tour

I love decorating our home. It is a fun relaxing hobby that I love to do. I always start with shopping my home. I will bring flowers, plants, blankets, rugs, and decor from other rooms and move them around to where I’d like them now. I will grab any themed decor I have stored in the garage out after that and add it to the areas I like to add themed decor. Usually that is my front entry table and coffee bar. I try to not spend much money on these themed decor, as well as we do not have to much room to store to many items. If your like me you know what I mean. No more storage room in the garage so space is precious and items must be worth storing.

Here is my final result for our Spring decor.

Entry Table

Mantel

Dining Room

Livingroom

Coffee Bar

Front Porch

December Promos 🌱 Young Living

****US DECEMBER PROMOS****

This month is all about celebration. No matter what holidays or events you celebrate in December, being together and sharing it with friends and family is what it’s all about. Young Living’s December promos will help you do just that, and there’s something special for all of us to celebrate the life and legacy of Gary Young.

These promos each cover a piece of coming together and celebrating, starting with Lemongrass Vitality, which can add a nice twist to some of those dishes at your holiday gatherings (as well as being a great part of a daily health and wellness regimen). Pine is a great oil to help fill your whole home with the comforting aroma of a fresh tree, and has the added benefit of having a grounding, calming effect. You can also use it with the Young Living Diffuser Ornament from last month’s promos! Joy. Do I need to go into why Joy is great for a month filled with holiday hustle and bustle and big gatherings? Diffuse it. Wear it as a perfume. Apply it over your heart. Let it work its magic on your mood. Maybe Joy isn’t your thing (the 5-ml could make a great stocking stuffer)? Well, Young Living broke out one of the big guns with White Angelica. If you still haven’t tried this blend, you need to get it while they’re giving it away. It is AMAZING. Calming. Grounding. Uplifting. And it smells divine. It’s one of the most popular blends, and for very good reason, and I have a feeling it will become one of your favorites (if it isn’t already).

White Angelica could be a great blend to diffuse during more stressful times with holiday planning, while Gathering is a great blend to diffuse while you have those holiday get togethers and fun times with friends and family. Gathering has Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Northern Lights Black Spruce, Vetiver, Frankincense, Rose, and other wonderful oils in it, and it can be a great conversation starter with the whole, “What is that amazing smell?” The “D. Gary Young: World Leader in Essential Oils” book is the perfect way for us to celebrate and learn more about the incredible life that the founder of Young Living lived, and the legacy he’s left that will live on. If you already have a copy, gift it to another oil lover who will appreciate just how special the book is. To top it all off, 15-ML FRANKINCENSE!! Give me ALL the Frankincense. All of it.
