I've gotten several since the last one I did, but blogging is hard! ;)

So....I asked for a comfy, cozy winter box that can be layered for our crazy Georgia winter weather.
The first top I tried on was the Honey Punch Josey Textured Pullover. I had pinned one similar on my Pinterest bored and my awesome stylest, Saytha, tried to match it.  
It looks more pink here, but its actually a little more purple than pink.  It was very soft and I loved the color and texture, but I just felt like it was too boxy and big on me.  No real shape.  Maybe a small would have worked better than a medium?  Oh well!  --Returned

Also, the jeans I'm wearing were sent to me as well.  They are Liverpool Deidra Bootcut Jean.  They have no buttons!  They just pull on!  Pretty comfy and fit perfectly, but I don't know.  Something about them just didn't call to me.  Maybe its the fact that I have a ton of jeans right now.  --Returned

Next up is the Emory Park Emi Duster Cardigan
Super soft and I'm sure its very warm, but I have enough outerwear right now.  --Returned

This...This top....LOVE!!!!
I had this pinned and Saytha found it for me!  The Laila Jayde Layola Cowl Neck Knit Pullover is everything I hoped for and more!  So soft and super cute!  And look at the detail on the bottom.
Love it!  And then...the best part....I didn't even notice at first.  I was taking it off and....
It has thumbholes, people!!  What?!?  I think I found my new favorite top!  Probably wearing it tomorrow! --Kept

Saytha also sent me this cute necklace, but I'm returning it.

<![CDATA[Walt Disney World Transportation Hacks: The Resort Monorail]]>Mon, 08 May 2017 14:24:19 GMThttp://goldencarriagegetaways.com/1/post/2017/05/walt-disney-world-transportation-hacks-the-resort-monorail.html
Disney transportation isn't always the best. Slow bus stop waits with tired, cranky kids are never fun.  Check out this hack from The Kingdom Insider!

"The Hack
Today’s hack lies in the fact that you can hop on that resort monorail and get to the Magic Kingdom just as fast as if you were to wait in that dreadfully long line for the monorail or ferry. The extra perk? You will most likely all have a seat and not be crammed shoulder to shoulder as well. This hack also applies to when you are leaving Magic Kingdom at the end of the night. Hop on that resort monorail again and you’ll make one stop at the Contemporary Resort and then the Ticket and Transportation Center, most likely between waves of the resort monorail, so you may have a relatively short line for the trams as well."
