    We Bought A HOUSE…

     🔑 It’s OFFICIAL! We are HOMEOWNERS 🔑

    I may have been a little MIA the last couple of months but I promise I have a good reason…we bought our very first house! My fiance and I were supposed to be getting married this month but COVID had other plans so we pivoted our plans and took this as the chance to find our dream home! Some may think it’s crazy to go house hunting in a pandemic with an uncertain economy and an unemployment rate that was increasing by the day (much better now that the vaccine is out) but something the pandemic brought was super low mortgage rates, something unseen in a very long time!

    With this influx of super low interest rates combined with limited inventory on the market, home buying became one intense process. You would see a house one day and need to make an offer within 24 hours competing with multiple offers well over ask to get the house you want. We began house hunting and it instantly became a stressful process but we knew now was the time to buy, at least for us as our current place was up for another year renewal and we no longer wanted to loose money renting vs investing in the equity of a home.

    After weeks of searching we found our dream home and when I say I knew it was the one I mean it. We walked in and I loved the wide, open, light and airy feel…I loved the neighborhood (walking distance from an award winning elementary school for when we start a family) and it had my dream white kitchen. It was love at first sight for me and after seeing the lovely neighborhood and hearing even from the neighbors who have lived here for 20+ years what a great community it is, my fiance was convinced as well.

    The bidding war began, we came in with a firm offer well over ask and mint credit and were selected! We moved in last month and the renovations and decorating began.

    That brings us to where I’m at now…well I’m typing this blog post from my gorgeous new office…designed exactly how I envisioned and I couldn’t be more thrilled. From my shoe and bag display to having areas to display my favorite Disney merch, to enough space to create content and run my marketing agency, this office is truly what I’ve dreamed of!

    Now the fun stuff begins…from redesigning our landscaping to buying furniture to setting up the guest rooms + more, everyday is a new journey and we are constantly learning new things when it comes to being homeowners. Month one we thought our water heater was broken (spoiler it wasn’t), we tried discovering why our tub plumbing wasn’t working (after multiple plumbers we realized it was a minor fix) and we are still getting to know our neighbors, HOA and so much more.

    My tips for first time home buyers in the current climate – 

     *Be Pre-Approved so when you find a house you want you can go for it ASAP (with low interest rates, the real estate market is on fire)

    *Have your budget in mind + don’t feel pressured to go over. My fiance and I had a budget in mind and even though coming in over ask and making a high offer may be necessary to seal the deal on the house you want, really evaluate if the house is worth what’s being asked, it’s important to not over extend yourself – that’s what leads to housing crashes like the early 2000s.

    *Understand you may not check every box on your list. For example, I wanted a pool but the perfect house didn’t have one so we decided in a few years we will put one in ourselves because everything else checked the boxes on our list when it came to school district, location, house layout + more.

    *When you find the right house you will know. It can feel like a ton of pressure to commit to a house, especially if you are on the fence + tons of people are making offers, but don’t let that convince you to get a place you aren’t truly in love with…otherwise you will regret it.

    *Take things slow once you move in, I definitely didn’t follow this advice – the moment we moved in I was go, go, go wanting everything to be perfect which led to fights and anxiety so don’t pull a Missy + instead take things slow 🙂

    Hello To A Bright 2021…

    ✨ HELLO 2021 ✨

    Let’s be honest, 2020 has been a doozy and 2021 is off to a rocky start but despite the world being a little overwhelming right now, I began thinking of what I’d like to accomplish this year, what to look forward to and also reflect on what 2020 taught us. There were growing pains we experienced as a country – from social justice issues to climate concerns to political mayhem to COVID and more so while I continue to process the ever changing saga that is everyday in the current world I know what I can control is myself, my actions, my future + my impact on the world.

    So what am I personally looking forward to in 2021? Well A LOT!

    My wedding got postponed which was a tough decision and for another blog post…stay tuned so 2021 we are focusing on moving forward with our lives by buying our first HOME. We felt is was the logical next step so we can begin planning our future while our wedding is on hold for the moment.

     1. House Hunting – we are looking to find our dream home within the next few months + I know that will be a fun way to kick off 2021. I can’t wait to find the home of our dreams and make it our own with fun design choices etc. Most of all I am excited about more space for my office and content creation…and my closet.

    The next thing I am excited for is to continue to grow not just my blog, MissyOnMadison but also my marketing agency!

     2- Growing My Business – My goal is to continue to add to my client roster and help amazing brands and founders grow their businesses. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients grow their social presence, website traffic + more so we want to expand that success by adding new clients to our agency for 2021!

    ICYMI running MRT Media Management is my full time job ♥

    Next thing I am looking forward to? Focusing on my overall health. That would be physical, mental etc. 2020 was pretty stressful for us all and I don’t know about you, but I have been having a hard time dealing with an almost year lockdown, having to skip all my exciting engagement and wedding moments and postponing my entire wedding for another year and a half basically. This leads me to needing a little self care love + focusing on my overall wellness.

     3 – Focus On My Health – My goal is to take time to work out a little everyday, continue to focus on eating healthy + also take mental health breaks. Whether it be yoga, meditation or going for daily walks – every little bit helps.

    ✨ What are some of your goals for 2021? ✨

    I’m back to reality this week after spending a magical week in Orlando at Disney World to kick off the fall season as part of #DisneyCreators! I had the amazing opportunity to hang with other influencers + experience everything new for Halloween at Walt Disney World Resort from new merchandise to tasty treats to spooky decor + more. There were so many favorites so here’s a few Halloween highlights I wanted to share with y’all!


    One of my favorite parts of Halloween at Disney World are the festive decorations. Nothing makes me happier than seeing Mickey pumpkins line Main Street and this year they are back in full force along with fall leaves and adorable signage.


    Since there are no character meet + greets currently at Disney World as part of their safety guidelines for COVID, there are fun character cavalcades that go around the parks at various times throughout the day. I loved the Halloween ones at Magic Kingdom like the one with Winnie the Pooh and friends dressed up in Halloween costumes or the Nightmare Before Christmas float complete with spooky music from the movie + more! This was one of my favorite parts of Magic Kingdom to keep the spooky spirit alive and well.


    You know I love stocking up on new Disney merch and the new goodies didn’t disappoint from Spirit Jerseys to Popcorn buckets to Ears to Plushes, Decor + more…I love all the spooky must haves and definitely stocked up on a ton from ShopDisney and from WDW!

     Villain Clue was a must have + I couldn’t wait to buy it and I can’t wait to play it!


    OK, other than stocking up on merch you know one of my favorite things to enjoy during Halloween at Disney World are the yummy treats! From desserts to drinks to savory snacks + more, Disney never disappoints when it comes to the food! One of my favs? The Pumpkin Spice Milkshake – how cute is it?

    I also LOVED the Pumpkin Spiced Waffle Sundae + Orange and Black Sugar Churros. Honestly all the food is way to yummy! Full food roundup on the Disney Parks Blog!

    While there are more safety precautions in place this time around, it didn’t make the experience any less magical, in fact smaller crowds, more opportunities for photos + short lines for rides + food! It was pretty magical if you ask me!

    P.S. I made it to the Disney Parks Blog if you want to check it out HERE!

    Tips To Planning A Disney Trip…

    White Eyelet Skirt || White Wedges || Danielle Nicole Purse || Tie Dye Disney Sweatshirt || Mint Green Minnie Ears

    ♥ Everything You Need To Know For Disney Planning During COVID ♥

    We’ve been in a pandemic for over 6 months now. Lots of unanswered questions, future unknown + moods haven’t been the best. We’ve been quarantined at home, beginning the steps of wedding planning, avoiding going out but next week that changes for me. I’ll be heading to Orlando for a press trip with Disney along with meeting with vendors for the wedding + overall planning for what’s ahead.

    I’m excited to head to Orlando but also nervous. I am taking every safety precaution seriously and anxious to see the extra steps put in place at Disney to keep everyone safe, healthy + happy so I wanted to share some things to keep in mid if you are planning a Disney World trip during this uncertain time.


    Currently the Walt Disney World Resort is opening limited resorts, restaurants etc so it’s important when planning your trip to see what is open, what is not + what are the new park hours given the updated park status. For example, the Polynesian Resort is closed until 2021 as it is being re-designed to be made Moana theme while other resorts are closed due to refurbishments + overall not having every resort open at once to limit overall capacity for safety pre-cautions.


    A new regulation in place at Walt Disney Resort due to COVID is that you can no longer park hop. You can only go to one park per day to prevent spreading any possible germs from location to location. No word on when park hopping will resume but for now this is the policy in place.


    New Walt Disney World Resort policy is that in order to visit one of the 4 theme parks, you must purchase tickets (or have your annual pass) ahead of time and book the day and park you want to attend in advance. This policy is in place to limit park getting filled above limited capacity currently in place to keep everyone safe. If you are planning a trip it’s key to book the days at the parks in advance to assure you get to go to the park on the days you want.


    I’m packing over 50 masks with me to match the looks I’m bringing to Disney given I will try to shoot some content while I am there, but overall the mask policy is while visiting any of the 4 parks you must wear a mask and you can’t take it off for pictures or any other reason other than to eat which you can’t do while walking to avoid people walking around maskless.


    I am going to the parks fully prepared with Clorox wipes, extra masks, plenty of sanitizer + more to make sure I have everything I need on me to keep clean. It’s important to sanitize after touching every surface and the wipes are handy for any transportation or rides you may be going on (including the airplane – I wipe down every inch of my seat, tray table, window etc to avoid any remaining bacteria. I also wipe down every piece of luggage often whether carry on or checked to make sure I am not touching what could have been touched by others.


    At the parks not every restaurant or fast service location is open so be sure to scope out the situation on the My Disney Experience app ahead of time to avoid getting hangry without knowing where to go to grab lunch or dinner.


    While we are living in a time with a lot of uncertainty, if you are planning a Disney trip make sure to be safe. Keep your distance, wear your mask, sanitize and wash your hands often, don’t touch your face, eyes or mouth until you have fully cleansed your hands etc, and most importantly think before acting – so often I will touch a surface + then out of habit go about my day…nope you must wipe down or sanitize everything to assure you avoid the spread of germs!
