I Just Realized My #DisneySide…

Hello, I’m Brittany.

#DisneySide Ariel

But, I am Ariel too.


Okay, I am not really Ariel…but I have to admit there are some {scary} similarities. My favorite Disney movie has been and will always be The Little Mermaid. Probably because I am a child of the 80’s. ┬áMaybe more so because I could totally relate.

Look at this stuff, isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the girl
The girl who has everything?

Look at this trove, treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here, you’d think
Sure, she’s got everything

I’ve got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I’ve got who’s-its and what’s-its galore
You want thing-a-mabobs?
I’ve got twenty
But who cares? No big deal. I want more

You know the song. It is one of my favorite Disney songs ever. My husband hears that song and says “yup, that’s you”. I don’t disagree. I have this OCD bordering hoarder personality that once my mind gets an interest in something I have to own everything that has to do with it. Like my planners and planning supplies. Or my makeup.


Or my techie gadgets. I couldn’t decide between the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Note 3. So I got both. I have issues.

BTW yes I am a ginger…I was born one. Even though I dye my hair now I have evidence to prove it:

Yup, that’s me. I think I was like 4. I was cute huh? RIP Dad. I miss you.

I have mini collections of frogs, tattoos, and pretty much anything that sparkles and/or is pink. ┬áLet’s not even get started on purses and totes…or pretty boxes and bags. Or Karaoke CD’s….

..and that brings on my love of music and {true disney princess style} random outbursts of song. I love to sing and for a time had an Ursula in my life who tried to steal my {inner and outer} voice and manipulate me for her own personal gain.


Only difference is my Ursula was actually my mother. Not the cool one you see in my Instagram feed or mentioned on my blog…the biological one who did so many horrible things to me that I am still not entirely comfortable talking about with anyone, let alone on this blog. Maybe another time.

Then there is the rather ironic fact that I married my sailor as well.

We did wait longer than a few days to get hitched though…not much longer but still.

Wonder where my husband’s picture is where he is in his Navy uniform? Sailor looks fine in his Navy uniform. Gonna have to find that and Project Life it.

So anyways, yeah. I love Ariel. Ariel is my part of my #DisneySide. I’m the spunky red head with hoarding issues, and evil witch in my past, lover of men in uniform. I am curious, adventurous, head strong, and I go after what I want and am not afraid of sacrificing something important to get it.

What’s your #DisneySide? What Disney character can you relate to?
