2017 was an incredible year for “Finding Debra”!
Thanks to you, my loyal readers, 2017 was a year I stepped outside of my comfort zone and was a bit more adventurous in so many ways. I thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane and see which blog posts you loved most. So here are my Top 10 Posts of 2017 – filled with recipes, tips, travel, and of course plenty of DISNEY!
Earlier this year, I shared with you a new favorite vacation spot – Amelia Island, Florida.
Not only that, but I gave you an up close look at some of the off-the-beaten-path hidden gems that are not to be missed. Definitely one to consider as you plan your spring/summer trips this year.
I shared with you one of my favorite easy, one pot meals this fall, and if you haven’t tried it yet, bookmark this now! It couldn’t be easier and we all have those crazy, busy weeknights where we could use an easy meal in the kitchen!
Just over a year ago my family experienced our very first Disney Cruise.
We chose a Merrytime Cruise during the week of Thanksgiving and it was fabulous. One of our experiences during that cruise was so unique that I had to share it with you fellow Disney travelers – the Royal Court Royal Tea.
The most popular post of the year had to do with germs!
It seemed everyone was interested in my top tips for fighting germs (especially while traveling). I can happily report back that though traveling throughout this really horrible flu season, we are still healthy (and I just got back from another trip this week)! Definitely worth a look and let me know if you have any tips to add!
This summer we had the most fun as we ventured off to Walt Disney World and became one of the first to ride in the new Minnie Vans!
The perfect way to get around the parks and resorts in certain circumstances – see what I’m talking about.
When fall hit, parents and teachers were looking for great activities to keep the kids entertained. These scarecrow activities were perfect!
Easy Devil’s Food Coca-Cola Cake – Only 2 Ingredients
No surprise that my Coca-Cola Cake was a favorite among readers this year. It is the simplest recipe by far. If you haven’t ever tried a Coca-Cola cake, you are in for a real treat. This recipe is so moist that you don’t need to add frosting or icing!
No-Spoiler Pixar COCO Movie Review – What Parents Want to Know
Last night, COCO was the Golden Globe winner for Best Animated Film. I’m so proud that I had the chance to play a small role in promoting this movie. If you haven’t yet seen this movie, you will want to head there soon with your entire family. The animation is breathtaking, but it’s the story that is so beautiful, it brought me to tears and had a big impact on my heart. Read why! Plus, see all the fun I had at the Coco Premiere – walking the red carpet and more!

Guide to Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom – Disney World
This little known activity at Disney World was one we discovered just a couple of years ago and I’ve been spreading the word ever since. You must try this (and get free souvenirs too)!
