Monday Must Haves: August 15, 2016
Happy Monday, friends! I'm totally embracing messy hair today. There's something about Monday that makes me really excited for chasing dreams and doing big things. This week I'm super excited because I finally get to go back to Walt Disney World for a day and just hang out and take some pictures for the Disney blog I write for, WDW Nerd.
One of my favorite Twitter accounts is @Imagineertweets. Chase is super cool, and dream driven. He is constantly posting beautiful pictures of Walt Disney World and Disneyland. There's also quite a few fresh takes about Paint The Night and the Main Street Electrical Parade right now. (If you didn't know, MSEP is leaving Magic Kingdom at WDW in Orlando October 9 to go to Disneyland for a final performance before "retiring." Strong rumor is that Paint The Night, the parade Disneyland in California had for the 60th Anniversary, is coming to WDW!) Chase also has an incredible IG account! Be sure to go follow him there as well.
One of my favorite Disney inspired small shops is Once Upon A Mickey Tee! Seriously guys, Katie and David make the cutest tees and tanks around! They just previewed their Christmas design and I'm going to need that in my life for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! Their shirts are super high quality, and the designs are so creative. One of my favorites is "It's a Rope Drop To Wishes Kind of Day!" which basically describes my Magic Kingdom life.

I'm loving a good highlight right now, and while I'm a major fan of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, a different highlight has taken over my love right now. The Tarte Champagne Pink Highlighter is the perfect BAM I'M HERE highlighter. It comes in the Showstopper Palette, along with a bronzer, a blush, and six eyeshadows. But the real star in the palette is the highlighter. It's the perfect icy pink without being glittery.
This past week was the start of NFL football, and even though it's preseason it's super exciting to have football back on my TV. I've missed Sunday's being filled with football snacks, a cold beer, and grown men fighting to the death. (Well not really, but sometimes they come out with bloody noses.) I think the Jaguars are going to have a pretty decent team this year, and I'm excited for what the future holds for this franchise.
One of my favorite food trucks here in Jacksonville is The Happy Grilled Cheese, and as you would suspect, they specialize in amazing grilled cheese sandwiches! One of my favorites is the mac & cheese melt and I add pulled pork. Yes, I know this is going to eventually clog my arteries and give me a heart attack, but sometimes you have to treat yourself. You can find out the location of The Happy Grilled Cheese every day by following them on Twitter: @HappyGrilledChs.
Since my AP wasn't good all summer I feel like I missed so much that opened in the parks right after my blackout dates started. One of those things is Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire, which is the new castle show that replaced Dream Along With Mickey. I'm super excited to see this new show because Rapunzel and Flynn are both in it, and I love Tangled! I've been seeing some awesome pictures from the show, so my goal this week is to catch one of the shows before it inevitably starts raining.
Well friends, that's it for this week's Monday Must Haves! If you like any of this stuff or have something you think I should try out let me know in the comments! Like this post if you're excited about NFL football being back!
