Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

It’s Thursday!

And for us, it’s basically Friday because, since the kids didn’t have any snow days this year (boo), they get tomorrow off.  What’s better than a random Friday off?

A snow day.

But…that didn’t happen, so we’re taking this! #takewhatyoucanget

It’s the FOURTH and final installment of our Spring Break Disney Cruise!

(And everyone said AMEN!)

Last week, I recapped PART ONE (where we boarded our ship and kicked off the fun!) along with PART TWO (where we docked in Key West and had the best day walking around that beautiful town!).  And then earlier this week, PART THREE where we hit up Atlantis in the Bahamas!

Today, we’re wrapping up the trip with our Marvel Day at Sea and our day at Castaway Cay.  Take a look…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Sleeping kiddos on our day at sea :).

We let everyone sleep in a bit on this morning and then we met up with the grandparents at the character meet and greets.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Breakfast with my little 🙂 .

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Everyone met up at 9:30 because we had tickets to see…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…THE MARVEL CHARACTERS!

Now, on our past sailings, the meet and greets have been for the Frozen characters and Princesses, but since this was a Marvel sailing, EVERYTHING was Marvel on our day at sea!  From the minute we woke up, to the minute we went to sleep, it was Marvel everything.   They were playing Marvel music around the ship, the captain kept coming over the loudspeaker and paging Marvel characters (it was really funny!), the crew all had on something Marvel, they were playing Marvel movies all day by the pool and in the theater…I’m telling you…it was MARVEL MANIA!  And my kids were PUMPED!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

The character meet and greets are free, but you have to make reservations for them in advance.  My kids loved this because they were all so personable!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Iron Man was my favorite because he was FUNNY!  Each character took a second to talk and joke around with the kids.  It was really sweet.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

So, after we met all of the characters, we hit the deck for a day by the pool.  Guess what?  I took three pictures the whole entire day.  Three.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

This selfie.  My swimsuit top is HERE.  And then this one…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…an awkward random picture.  Ha!  We swam, we rode the slides, we played, and played and played…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…and then this one too 🙂 .  At 3:30, I took M inside and we cleaned up quickly for her appointment at…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!

Third Disney sailing, third daughter to get a makeover in Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.  Looky here…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

our first sailing when Kensington had her makeover.  Ahhhh!  Look how little she was!!!  And then last year

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…when Ashby had her makeover!!!

This year, it was Madeley’s turn…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Because you don’t want glitter in your eyes!  🙂

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Spider Girl looked so beautiful!!  She had on a little makeup, her nails were polished, she had sticker earrings on and her hair was oh so fancy!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Big sister’s face says it all!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

You also need to make Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservations in advance before you board.  You can buy a costume there or bring one from home (which is what we always do).

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

She was so proud!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

#alltheglitter

For Marvel night, we brought all of the kiddos Marvel costumes to wear…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

They were ready for FUN!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

We opted out of costumes, but let me tell you, so many adults had them on ALL DAY LONG!!  My dress was from Amazon and it’s only $19!!!!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Dinner this night was at Animator’s Palate and Kensington wouldn’t lose her character.  No smiles.  All attitude.  Instead of their normal show at Animator’s Palate during dinner, it was a special Marvel show.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

We all were having the BEST day!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

My earrings are HERE.

After dinner, the kids went to Marvel trivia night and the adults went to another pub trivia.  There was a big Marvel celebration on the top deck at 10:15…and we reallllly wanted to stay awake for it, but my kids were wiped out.  Andrew even offered to wake Smith up at 10:00 for it, and Smith declined.  I’m pretty sure we were all fast asleep by 9:00.  Being outside and having fun all day can wear you out!

The next morning, we awoke in…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…Castaway Cay.  This is Disney’s private island and it’s INSANELY gorgeous!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

We all had breakfast and were ready to disembark right at 8:30.  We wanted to grab great spots on the beach!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

See all of those people on the left?  They were getting off to run the 5K that morning.  If you’re a runner, you can run the 5K at every Castaway Cay port of call.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

A beach day with my babe.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

We found a great spot right near the kids’ area with all the slides and stuff (see it back there?), and then settled in for the day.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

You can buy sand supplies there, but I always bring it from home.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Toes in the sand with my littlest love.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

I love her so much!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

All of the grandparents loved the island too!  You can pick excursions on this day if you want more stuff to do…but we enjoy just sitting on the beach and playing in the water.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Too bad you can’t move to Castaway Cay.  Ha!  My hat is HERE and swimsuit is HERE.

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Castaway Cay offers a really nice place for lunch too (that is free of charge!).  It’s a big BBQ buffet in the center of “town”.  The food is always delicious!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

All my peeps at the beach!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

See Ashby and Madeley on their float?  They just giggled and floated around all afternoon!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

 

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

The end of a great day 🙂 .

We went back on board the ship and cleaned up for dinner (reluctantly, I might add!).

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Here we are…ready for our final dinner on board!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

I just love traveling with this guy here.  (My romper is HERE.)

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

That Ashby Shull sure is sweet!

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

Think she loves her Papa Jay?

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

We had dinner again at Animator’s Palate on this night…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…and it was their traditional show where MICKEY shows up!!

After dinner, look who we ran into…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…Sofia 🙂 .

We wrapped up the night…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…with a FANTASTIC show!!  The whole family loved the Dreams show that evening.

We went to sleep and then…

, Disney Cruise 2019 PART FOUR

…woke up and it was time to disembark.  It was also mine and Andrew’s 15th wedding anniversary.  Ah!  FIFTEEN YEARS!  We had breakfast onboard and then headed back to the airport to fly home.  Speaking of our anniversary, did you watch this…

…we did a little video where we discuss everything from our marriage to our families, adoption, friends, food and so much more 🙂 .

Whew!  Annnnnnnnd…we’re done!

This trip with all four grandparents was such a blessing to all of us.  My kids haven’t stopped talking about it since we got home.  I’m so thankful for all four of them and what they mean to our little family.

    What a TRIP!!! You guys managed to pack in ALL THE FUN on those five nights! And I’m asking for a friend but did you spot Thor?? 😉

  • Charmaine Ng | Architecture & Lifestyle Blog March 28, 2019 at 4:51 am

    The girls and their makeovers are the cutest thing! They look so happy, haha! 😀

    What a memorable vacation for everyone! Everyday there’s something special. We’ve done. Several Disney cruises too, and I have to add that we upgraded to Concierge level and that was a game changer. I mention it because I feel like yall would benefit from the extra room and bathroom. It also offers the opportunity to book a cabana on Castaway Cay which is just one more step closer to heaven! You share so many tips and I’ve benefitted do much from you so I had to share a tip for you.
    Thanks for all you do for your readers.

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 5:37 am

      Yes!! Our clients that select concierge cabins always have the best time!!

      • Nadine March 28, 2019 at 3:31 pm

        Ever gone to Palo? The dinner is good but the brunch is amazing! For a cookbook author, I would think that you would want to eat there.

        • Mix and Match Mama March 29, 2019 at 6:21 am

          I haven’t because I haven’t felt like we’ve had time. If we were to do a longer sailing with multiple days at sea, I would. But since we’re on shorter itineraries, I don’t want to spend time on certain things that I would most certainly do on a longer sailing (like visiting the spa too!).

  • Kylee March 28, 2019 at 5:42 am

    Hi there! Love your trip recaps! Looks like such a fun time! I was just wondering what size you ordered that $19 dress and how the fit was? I’m going to Florida in a couple weeks and would love to take something like that!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 5:58 am

      I bought it in a small and was over the moon thrilled by it!

      • Tammy March 28, 2019 at 9:20 am

        What size do you typically wear? I’m a size 2 and I’m afraid the Small will be too big. The sizing on Amazon says a Small is for size 4-6.

        • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 10:36 am

          I typically always wear a 2 and the small fit me great!

    • Laura Farmer March 28, 2019 at 9:28 am

      Love the last 2 days of your cruise. Thank you for sharing.

  • Elspeth Mizner March 28, 2019 at 5:54 am

    Looks like the absolute best time! So glad you all went and had so much fun! Do you prefer land or sea vacations?

    http://www.elspthsdaybyday.com

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 5:59 am

      Eeeeeks! That’s such a hard one. Okay, I love big land vacations (like the Scotland/Ireland trip we took last summer), so I would probably say that…but every.single.time. I board a ship, I get excited and feel like it’s my “happy place”.

  • Rory March 28, 2019 at 6:09 am

    This is random, but do you do anything special to keep your clothes wrinkle-free when you travel? Special folding techniques or something? I hate ironing on a holiday and you and your husband always look so crisp 🙂

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 6:59 am

      Have you tried Tom & Sheri’s iron in a bottle??? We bring that!! I do think using the packing cubes helps too because things don’t get tossed around.

  • Narci March 28, 2019 at 6:16 am

    What fun!! I am loving all the pics of Castaway and Marvel night! This looks like an absolute blast! My whole family can’t wait to take another Disney Cruise!

  • Sheaffer Sims March 28, 2019 at 6:20 am

    THAT $19 dress!!!!! Sooooooooooooo good! And Miss Madeley was precious all made up…but so was K seeing M all made up! SO SWEET.

  • Alexis deZayas March 28, 2019 at 6:34 am

    The picture of Madeley in Castaway Cay is the sweetest!! Looks like y’all had the best time!

  • Allison March 28, 2019 at 6:41 am

    We were on the Fantasy at the same time of your cruise. Love DCL! I’m thinking our next will include a Marvel day! Looks so fun! Thanks for sharing these sweet memories!

  • Jess at Just Jess March 28, 2019 at 7:28 am

    M’s makeover was so sweet! It looks like an amazing trip! Jess at Just Jess

    • Laura Farmer March 28, 2019 at 9:29 am

      Love the last 2 days of your cruise. Thank you for sharing.

  • Angela Ellingson March 28, 2019 at 7:37 am

    What an incredible vacation!! So between your trips to Disney World, Disney Land and Sea and just the Disney cruises, how do you rank them price wise? And which is your favorite?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 8:29 am

      Oh gosh! I have to say Land & Sea because you get the best of everything!!!

  • Kelly Buffington March 28, 2019 at 7:44 am

    We were on a Disney cruise in 2009 and my twin sons were thrilled to see our sweet restaurant servers from the ship at the BBQ on Castaway Cay. I think they thought that they lived on the ship and never left it:).

  • Alice March 28, 2019 at 8:09 am

    There’s only one ‘d’ in Bibbidi and Bobbidi. It’s clear from Madeley’s sash. And it’s Sofia, not Sophia. Just wanted to make sure you knew. If I was touting my Disney travel agent super skills, I would want to be sure I had the spelling right.

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 8:28 am

      Ugh…here’s the thing…I need an editor. That is for SURE! Going to correct that stuff now. I probably also need more coffee and sleep too 😉 .

    • Emily March 28, 2019 at 8:37 am

      Wow Alice. Just because she’s a travel agent doesn’t mean she has to be a spelling bee champ too.

      • Alice March 28, 2019 at 9:52 am

        It’s not that hard to check before you hit publish, Emily. The blog is a part of her job. I thought it might be beneficial to know. If I were traveling somewhere and the travel agent I wanted to use didn’t spell things correctly, it would make me question their attention to detail to the rest of my planning. Thanks, Shay, for taking my advice. 🙂

        • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 10:36 am

          To be fair to Emily, Sophia doesn’t get underlined in red as being spelled incorrectly and no matter which way you spell Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, you get the red…so, yes, I should edit more carefully, but yes, I do write a ton and am human therefore, I make mistakes.

    • Karyl March 28, 2019 at 8:45 am

      That was a bit unkind. We have used the services of the Mix and Match Travel Agency and their strengths are creative ideas, responsiveness, and friendly customer service. Perfect spelling of obscure proper nouns is not on our list of requirements.

    • Erica Werner March 29, 2019 at 10:21 am

      I have been reading your blog for years. I absolutely love it! You are so encouraging and positive. I could say so many great things about you! Thank you for sharing your life with us. I LOVED this video with Andrew. It was just FUN! I was laughing so hard during the rapid fire questions because it totally reminded me of my husband!!! And you’re right, I did know most of the answers just from reading your blog! LOL! I am so thankful for you and your family, even though I have never met you! 😊 Have a great weekend Shay!

  • WhittyWife March 28, 2019 at 8:14 am

    Oh my word, such fun days!! Okay, so I have to tell you that I LOVE your hair straight – beautiful! Also, how did K grow up and become a teenager overnight?! Oh, and you should come to New England, where our kiddos all have to go to school later in June, because we used up MORE than our allotted snow days. 😉 Haha! (But I agree, snow days are still the best.)

  • Sara Robinson March 28, 2019 at 8:15 am

    I wish my kids were little – so regret not doing a Disney cruise with them when they were younger! Need to plan a trip to the Bahamas!

  • Laci March 28, 2019 at 8:17 am

    My favorite memory is the Disney Cruise we took our kids on! We need to book another one!

    • Margaret March 28, 2019 at 9:45 am

      Enjoyed you and Adrew talking about life! Have you thought about doing a talk show together or app.

      • Amy March 28, 2019 at 11:58 am

        Great idea!!! I am ALL for you two doing more talks Together. Loved it!!

  • Amanda Wilson March 28, 2019 at 8:20 am

    We just got off our first Disney cruise…..and you were so right!!!! AMAZING!! Love all the recaps! Love your travel posts!! Have you heard of the Bucket List Family?? I think you and your kids would love to watch them!!

  • Emily March 28, 2019 at 8:35 am

    Do Disney cruises have rules about being potty trained for the pools like other cruises? Also do all sailings include a stop at castaway cay?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 8:43 am

      Yes! They have a kids splash area for those younger kiddos. Almost all Bahamanian and Caribbean sailings do…but not all. Some even make TWO stops there!

  • Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams March 28, 2019 at 8:35 am

    What a memorable trip!! You and Andrew were too cute in your anniversary video. Glad Smith got to visit with his beloved Marvel characters instead of the Frozen princesses lol. I can’t wait to take a Disney Cruise with my family one day!
    Amanda @ Cupcake N Dreams

  • Amy Azza March 28, 2019 at 8:38 am

    I just love your blog and all the pictures of your sweet family. I traveled all the time with my grandparents as a child and it’s so special that your kiddos got all 4 grandparents on this trip. Also.. you always look gorgeous but that $19 dress from Amazon is my favorite look on you !!

  • Kara March 28, 2019 at 8:46 am

    This was my favorite post of the trip. Taking it easy….playing in the ocean and pool…my kind of vacation.

    K’s face when Madeley got her “makeover” – Love!!!! The character photos on the stairs are great!

  • Kim March 28, 2019 at 8:53 am

    You and Andrew need to quit playin’ and start your modeling careers ASAP! I mean talk about two gorgeous people!! 😜

  • Erica March 28, 2019 at 8:56 am

    Loved the video of you and Andrew! Happy 15th Anniversary! I also loved the $19 Amazon dress and just ordered it for our Disney Cruise in May!!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 10:37 am

      Have so much fun!!!!

  • Chrys March 28, 2019 at 9:00 am

    Wow…some people can be brutal with the comments. Sheesh! Anyway, I LOVE all your cruise posts, every time! But that is also because I am a cruise lover. Quick, random question…Do you whiten your teeth? If so, what do you use? I have sensitive teeth and I am always afraid of trying something, but your teeth always look so pearly white. 😁 Thanks Shay!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 10:37 am

      Ughhhhhhh…I can use a Crest White Strip about once every two weeks. Any more than that and I’m cursing myself all day long. My teeth are super sensitive!!

  • Annalisa March 28, 2019 at 9:06 am

    I’m thinking of planning a beach vacation this summer but I have little kids (7 months, 3, and 8) They would definitely need lift jackets and I noticed Madeley wearing one on your trip. Did you pack that for her or were you able to rent it? I’m nervous about how much I would need to pack for them for a beach trip! Thanks!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 10:36 am

      I packed it for her!

  • Michele March 28, 2019 at 9:11 am

    Loved, loved the video! I think Andrew is my favorite person in the World!:)

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 10:37 am

      He sure is mine!!

    • Jan March 28, 2019 at 7:18 pm

      I love all of your vacation posts! Your family looks so happy in your photos. 🙂 I would really like to hear some of your mom’ s diet and fitness tips. She does not look like a Grandma one bit!

      • Mix and Match Mama March 29, 2019 at 6:19 am

        Um, she doesn’t ever work out and doesn’t eat well at all. It’s the weirdest thing. She doesn’t eat very much (like, I could not survive on what she eats), so that’s probably part of it. She’s never been one of those “healthy” people who likes a good run and a salad…so, I think it’s all genetics.

  • Paige March 28, 2019 at 10:01 am

    Do you have a link or the name/store where you got the brown/tan sandals you have on in the pictures with the Amazon dress and the day you got off the ship? They look like shoes you could wear with anything!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 10:33 am

      I wish! They’re several years old from Nordstrom. They’re really comfy.

  • Carrie March 28, 2019 at 10:49 am

    Do you know, if you have a little boy who wants a princess makeover at the boutique, will they do it? Do you think they’d handle it respectfully?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 12:30 pm

      Yes!! There was a boy in there this time!! They have boy costumes for purchase as well!!

  • Shelly March 28, 2019 at 10:54 am

    Shay, can you share where those brown wedges are from? From the photo with the amazon dress? thank you!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 12:30 pm

      They’re old. Boo! I’m sorry!!

  • Raeanne March 28, 2019 at 10:58 am

    Do you ever feel motion sickness on cruises? I get motion sickness flying and if I am sitting in the backseat on a road trip. I REALLY want to go on a cruise, but I am scared I will be sick the whole time!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 12:30 pm

      I do not…but I do get very sick on planes and in cars. I really don’t feel the motion on a big cruise ship.

  • Lori March 28, 2019 at 10:59 am

    I started following your blog when my sweet granddaughter became a part of our family through adoption. I know I’m older than most of your readers – but I still want to be fashionable which can sometimes be a challenge to look age appropriate. Your mother always looks like she has the perfect balance of fashion and age appropriate. Have you ever thought about featuring her in some of your fashion posts?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 12:29 pm

      I have asked and she has politely declined! I will ask again though! I do know that she shops mostly at Nordstrom and Anthro.

  • Kelly Lane Nation March 28, 2019 at 11:13 am

    That pic of your kiddos posing in costumes is too cute! You should definitely frame that!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick March 28, 2019 at 11:23 am

    Oh man. I need a vacation. And I’m loving that Amazon dress!

    It has been fun to see your in-laws! Your MIL is gorgeous. What a blessing your kids have all 4 grandparents strong and healthy. Your mom is stunning too! I love her style. 🙂

  • Lauren March 28, 2019 at 12:21 pm

    Can you share a link to those nude sandals you’re wearing in the last picture (if they’re still available?) Thanks!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 12:29 pm

      The wedges? They’re old. Boo.

  • Brittany March 28, 2019 at 12:25 pm

    Ok Marvel day looks like the best time!! So glad y’all had such a great vacay!!

  • Renee March 28, 2019 at 12:58 pm

    Popping in to say how much I enjoyed your video. You guys are adorable and I enjoyed every minute of it. I was nervous for Andrew during the rapid fire question part. I was glad he redeemed himself toward the end of the questions. My husband would have been terrible!

  • Kayla Sokoloff March 28, 2019 at 12:59 pm

    Where did you get the dress that you are wearing on the last day? It is so cute!!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 2:28 pm

      That’s an oldie but goodie too from Nordstrom!

  • Chelsea March 28, 2019 at 1:12 pm

    Ashby is serving the up fierce in that Spidergirl costume! I love it! Also, I really like your hair straight. Very pretty ❤️

  • Cyndi Berger March 28, 2019 at 1:19 pm

    Just have to say it, GO MARINERS, being a Seattle gal.

  • Sarah March 28, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    Why is no one commenting on Ashbys pose in her marvel outfit? She is beautiful, Shay! Happiness and confidence can be seen so easily. Good job, mama.

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 2:27 pm

      Thank you 🙂 .

  • Jordyn Kolar March 28, 2019 at 1:36 pm

    When watching your video with Andrew I was yelling GERMAN FOOD during rapid fire.. phahhaha.

  • Chiffon March 28, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    What type of room do you prefer on a cruise ship and what deck?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 28, 2019 at 2:27 pm

      It depends on the ship, but I like a nice high deck with a veranda. I also like mid-ship to aft the most.

  • Liz Thorson March 28, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    Loved the picture story of your vacation with all of your childrens’ grandparents! You’ve shared many pictures of your parents through the years I’ve read your blogs, and a few of your in-laws. Your in-laws are a stunning couple! I think Kensington looks a lot like a combo of her darling mother and Andrew’s pretty mother!❤️ Loved Kensington’s reaction to Madeley’s reveal! Precious!❤️ Shay, I admire you so much! You always take the high road when someone says something petty or critical regarding something you have shared with us. As my precious, long passed away mother used to tell us, a true Christian does not flaunt or label or talk about being a Christian, they share it by their words and behaviors.

    I’m about to leave for spring break!! I’m a work out every day kind of person, and I’m really wanting to use this week to relax and just enjoy my family. Do you sleep in while on vacation? What’s your mantra for while on vacation? Do you let loose? Thanks!!

      I do not work out on vacation. I really try and get more sleep and let my body rest while traveling 🙂 .

    Hey Shay! Which Louis purse did you take with you on the ship?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 29, 2019 at 6:20 am

      That little crossbody…but I don’t know the name.

    Why do the little girls so often wear the same outfits?

      Because they think it’s so much fun!

    I have been wondering if I should look for something different than the standard Polo shirt for my husband, but I feel validated now after seeing Andrew wearing them in several of your vacation pics! Does he wear the classic or slim fit?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 29, 2019 at 6:20 am

      Slim Fit from J. Crew!

    Where did Lovie get her swimsuits?

    Wow, Andrew’s mom looks really tall!

    • Mix and Match Mama March 29, 2019 at 6:18 am

      She is! All of those Shulls are tall! My 12 year old nephew is 6’2″. YES!

    I love your cruise posts so much! I’d love it if you did a “must pack for Disney cruise” post!

    I have a question about your Nantucket trip ☺️ My husband and I are planning an Anniversary trip to Nantucket & Martha’s Vinyard and are using your blog for tips. What did you do with your rental car while you were on the island? Also, have you ever been to Martha’s Vineyard?

    • Mix and Match Mama March 30, 2019 at 6:19 am

      We only rented a car for a few hours one day. You really do not need a car on Nantucket if you’re staying near Main Street. We like to rent a car for a few hours one day to drive around the island, but the rest of the time, we stay within walking distance of everything (or uber).
