Let the VLOGGING begin

After much deliberation and anticipation (on my end; sorry) we finally got the ball rolling and our YouTube Channel, Delightful Chaos, and things are on a roll! We vlogged our ENTIRE TRIP from our days at Disneyland, to California Adventure Park and even a little visit to Santa Monica Pier.  Vlog 002 //Disneyland Adventures (napping in Disneyland) Vlog 003 //California Adventure Park (flying high without telling dad) Vlog 004 //Santa Monica Pier (burgers for babies) Vlog 005 //Disney Adventures (picky eater breakthrough) We made memories that will last a lifetime, and thankfully I made a point to pull out my video camera at every moment I could so that not only … read more...

We’re in Disneyland {brb}

It's true, we're headed to the happiest place on earth... DISNEYLAND!

Husbands Doing Laundry {+free printable}

There is nothing hotter than a man who cleans; am I right ladies? When it comes to husbands, I know I won the lotto and I don't even have to split the winnings (hello! sister wives). 10 years together and it's safe to say that we've finally found our groove as a couple, and YES that means my husband cleans and does the laundry.  I cook all meals, make all lunches, keep the house tidy and the kids alive and on weekends he does a deep clean and any dirty laundry that still needs doing. It's not for everyone, but it works for us. Don't get me wrong it's not like this each and every week, duties change, he may cook while I may get to all the laundry that week, but at the … read more...

3 Jeans, 10 Days, Choose Wisely

Hi, my name is Tairalyn and I over pack for all vacations! If their were such thing as a OPA (over packers anonymous), no doubt this would be my opening line. The one I would say right before I burst into tears giving my irrational reasoning for packing my entire wardrobe (all 4 seasons of it) for a week long tropical vacation. Over packing is just something I come at naturally, deciding in advance what I will wear each day sounds like torture to me, it's just something I can't wrap my mind around, I like the idea of having options. This weekend our family leaves to California for 10 days and although I managed to fit me and the girls in 1 RATHER LARGE suitcase I didn't … read more...

Tiny Happy Tuesday

So my girl Hillary over at Hillary with two L's Please has started a movement, Tiny Happy Tuesday's and I wanted to get involved; mostly because I need some tiny happies in my life, and because I love this girl! So let's do this people, let's share our tiny happies and have a warm tingly feel good moment together this Tuesday (one that's not brought on by caffeine)... Tiny Happy Tuesday is a prompt to acknowledge the good, no matter how small. Acknowledging (and sharing!) tiny happies can lead to bigger happies as we train our brain to find the good.  Tiny Happy #1 // Sissy Sofia has made it very clear over the last few months, she come to the decision … read more...

Why Disneyland is MORE than magical for kids!

So this morning my news feed lit-up with tagged images and videos, connecting me to Johnny Depp. Although a fabulous connection to have (Hello! Mr. Depp) my friends and family knew I needed to hear the news. As he has been known to do, Johnny Depp surprised Disneyland guests by putting himself INSIDE the Pirates of the Caribbean ride surprising all that rode it yesterday (see it here)! What an experience eh?  WE MISSED HIM by 10 days! I mean, HE MISSED ME by 10 days (too bad for him, he'll be losing sleep over this one tonight)! After reading the articles I was tagged in I got to see some video clips from riders in Disneyland and I got crazy excited; WHAT FUN! I … read more...

Luggage Haul (for Disneyland)

We all know that half the fun of planning a vacation is the countdown (hello! paper chains for the win) and of course searching out and purchasing new things for the trip too; no?! Is that just me?

Either way, we've increased our luggage to include a few new things that I just had to share with you because I'm so excited to put them to good use this Family holiday.  Here you have the 5 most recent additions to our luggage (yes, I left that very open for more possible additions):   Water Floaty // Retails $15 We're headed back to the same house we stayed at (and loved) the last time we visited … read more...
