My name is Shannon and I look forward to sharing some of my life with you!  I am an Event Manager turned part time working mom trying to wrangle two kids, a dog, a bunny, a husband and my blog!  I have a degree in Sports, Entertainment, and Event Management and worked in the hotel industry but realized the hours weren’t conducive to having a family and giving them the attention that I wanted.

This blog is a slice of our lives and offers a look at everything from crafting to baking and living!  I love to bake and enjoy planning activities for the kids.  I am a Disney loving Mama and working on creating Disney loving kids!   We love traveling asok a family and experiencing new things (and revisiting Disney as many times as I can convince my husband to let me  ).
