We went on a Disney Cruise! {Travel Tuesday}

I am SO excited to share with you that we just got back from our first ever Disney Cruise! We originally had booked a week to Atlantis and after some recent negative reviews about the property, we did a switcharoo and booked a last minute Disney Cruise on the Magic.  It was seriously the best decision ever and I am already looking to book another one! Because we were so last minute and we planned to travel over Spring Break, our options were a bit more limited.  We ended up booking a 5-night cruise out of Miami and the only negative we had was that it wasn’t longer.  We can’t wait to book a 7-night out of Port Canaveral!

I plan on sharing ALL the things about the cruise and I will review our excursions and experiences over the next few weeks.  I did a lot of research before sailing so I will try and share as many things as possible to help any of you that might be looking to book a Disney Cruise for yourself or for your family.

My Future Blogger {Mommy Monday}

Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited to be back with another Mommy Monday post!  I love sharing some of my favorite finds and this MerriMane vest has been a wardrobe staple all winter!

If you have ever traveled to Florida during the winter, you have probably seen the crazy weather changes we experience from morning to afternoon.  You can wake up with 40-degree temps and by lunchtime, it can be in the 80’s!  Because of this, I have had the hardest time dressing the kiddos for school.  I was SO excited when MerriMane sent Brayden this adorable pink vest!  It is the perfect transitional piece for our Florida weather and it’s so incredibly soft and cozy!

How to Season a Pizza Stone

After sharing our family pizza night post, I received a few questions about how we seasoned our pizza stone.  Fortunately, we just purchased the pizza stone and I took some photos of the process.

I purchased the Big Green Egg pizza stone for my hubby for Christmas along with a table for the smoker.  When the table and stone were being delivered, the BGE authorized dealers gave me 2 tips that have helped a ton in our pizza making journey.  The first noted that we never want to soak the pizza stone or wash it with water.  The stone is very porous and when wet, could shatter under the extreme heat.  The second is that we should season our stone before using it.

I did some research online and there seems to be a difference of opinion on this matter. Some people believe that the stone does not need to be seasoned and the act of heating/cooking on the stone will allow natural seasoning over time.  There are also those that believe a seasoned stone will create a better cooking process and prevent the pizza dough from sticking to the stone.  We decided to season the stone and I am so happy that we did! Here are the steps to seasoning your own pizza stone at home.
