Monthly Life Update: May 2022

Monthly Life Update: May 2022

Stay updated on the latest happenings.

I feel like my life has only been Disney content since booking our trip in February. And it pretty much has been! All the outfits I’ve been planning for all spring are Disney. All the conversations I have at home are Disney. Everything Disney. So much Disney!

Here’s a pic of me at Animal Kingdom. I took so many pictures and video of our trip. Now I just need to organize the content to write some posts about it!


With our vacation happening this month, it was difficult to add in anything “extra” on top of our work schedules. A lot of my want-to-do’s were pretty much put on the back burner. But I am marking one complete! Travel somewhere newWe went to Disney!

You can find my original list of my goals here: #22in2022.


I didn’t do anything sponsored this month because I was really focused on on the plans for Disney!

LTK: I did not work on growing this channel this month. May had 277 clicks and $4.44 open commissions.


I wrote seven posts this month, so it’s a lot better than April! I also participated in some engagement groups, but not too much.

Here’s what I shared on the blog this month:

  1. Kentucky Derby 148TH Run for the Roses Viewing Party
  2. The Top Four Trackless Rides at Disney World
  3. 5 Ways to Display Your Disney Pin Collection
  4. Outfits I Wore to Each Disney World Park
  5. AmbassadHer Review – Is AmbassadHer Legit?
  6. 8 Essential WordPress Plugins
  7. May 2022 Reading List – 3 Books
  8. and this Monthly Life Update: May 2022!


May 2022 Side Hustle Income

Even with being gone for one full week on vacation, I still managed to sell a couple items before I left. Even with a little hustle, I’m glad that there’s something in the bank! I also received a collaboration payout right before the month ended, so that was a nice boost as well.

Total income: $248.17
Total expenses: $50
Net: $198.17

May 2022 Transactions

LTK lowered the payout threshold down from $100, so I did received some affiliate payouts this month. And I love getting the cash back by using Rakuten!


I pushed myself as hard as I could before we left for vacation. Then vacation was full of standing in lines, haha. My legs are still sore! Then I got sick. This is the work month of the year!

Total Miles: 15.6
Total Hours: 4:38:30
Total Workouts: 16


I’ve already read 23 books so far this year! That’s 46% of my goal.

Zack and I celebrated six years of marriage this month. We didn’t celebrate because it was the weekend after we got back from Florida.
