DisneyKids Sofia the First Preschool Playdate

Yesterday, we had the pleasure of inviting a few friends over for a fun Disney Preschool Princess Playdate! Our friends at Walt Disney World Resort and MomSelect sent us a wonderful celebration kit filled with fun stuff to help us pamper and shower our playdate guests with pixie dust! We used everything from the box, including fun […]

You already know how excited I am about the new Disney movie, FROZEN. Now that our family has seen it and are COMPLETELY and TOTALLY in love with it (ahem), I’ve been on a hunt to secretly purchase all the FROZEN toys from Walmart I can find for them to unwrap under our tree this […]

Disney’s Frozen Review

frozen

I’ve started and stopped this review so many times, and I still can’t seem to come up with words that amply convey just how wonderful this movie truly was. Stunning imagery and graphics, hilariously funny, wonderful engaging story, and fantastic cast when coupled with the single best 3D I’ve ever seen, you have “FROZEN” by […]

Mickey Mouse Waffles #EggoWaffleOff

Mickey Mouse Waffle

As a Chief Waffle Officer for Eggo®, our task this week was to create a character out of waffles. This one was a no-brainer for me, really. We looooove Mickey Mouse, and we’re a pretty Disney-addicted family. I’ve had Disney on the brain lately, so a character out of waffles – oh heck yeah, it’s gonna be […]

Happiness is ______ {Week Thirty} #happinessis

pool to ourselves

2013 is going to be a fantastic year – a year where we collectively focus on the happy and the joy in our lives. What makes you happy? What is it that you do that you can’t get enough of? What makes your soul shine, your eyes beam, and your insides sparkle? Happiness is so […]

Toy Story Birthday Party

default

This was Baby Dude’s first big-deal birthday party, where he was old enough to realize everything happening. He’d been talking about it being his ‘birt-day” for weeks now, but doing all of THIS? This was HUGE to him. As huge Toy Story fans, we’ve amassed quite a collection of Toy Story paraphernalia. We broke it […]

Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2011 Recap – Day 3 #DisneySMMoms

default

Our day 3 started out by my decision to NOT run that morning (if you could call sleeping-in a “decision”). Ha! As much as I wanted to, all the walking and dancing and activity from the day before left me super-exhausted and, as a result, our entire family slept through breakfast, which was NOT good […]

Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2011 Recap – Day 2 #DisneySMMoms

Screen Shot 2013-05-14 at 4.40.30 PM

The night before, I had found a fellow conference-goer who wanted to run at Disney World. Her name is Krista (@kristalswan on Twitter) and, after connecting on Twitter about meeting for a run before the conference, we met at the registration desk downstairs at O-dark-thirty (6:30am) Friday morning. The air felt a bit cool (being […]

Disney Social Media Moms Conference 2011 Recap – Day 1 #DisneySMMoms

default

Nothing says “We’re home!” like kids and husbands puking. (We’ve got skillz, friends.) Needless to say, all are on the mend, but damn, was that ever a not-so-happy end to the wonderful time we had this weekend. Won.der.ful. Oh my gosh! First things most importantly first – I want to thank Amy, Susan and Janice, […]

Death by Ass-Numbness – Road Trip Take 2 #DisneySMMoms

default

Currently, I’m in our minivan, where I’ve been for three plus hours now, exhausted from being up really late packing eleventy-billion kids’ things, ass already getting numb to an insane level (with several more hours of driving ahead of us, too), but we’re on our way to Disney World for the Disney Social Media Moms […]

Happy Veteran’s Day

default

  Last year’s Veteran’s Day was spent quite eventfully playing with military equipment and bouncing in jumpy houses. The year before it was spent at a local nursing home, honoring vets there. This year, it’s spent much quieter, tucked away close to home, together. My husband’s upstairs, hip-deep in Batman action figures, Dora dolls, and […]

Mastering the Mickey Pancake

mickey mouse pancake tutorial

My last attempts at Mickey-Shaped pancakes equaled a gigantic mega-fail on my part. See? Really, I know. That was a lame attempt at free-pouring. I am happy to report that I no longer have to try it freehanded. I have weapons with which to create awesome! Woohoo! Upon visiting one of the many shops at […]

Fever and the Unexpected Snow

default

While we were in Disney, my daughter, Captain Obvious, came down with a fever. She had no other symptoms except she was cold. She eventually became tired and lethargic from it, so we took her back to the hotel instead of her feasting on pizza at CiCis. Within a day she was perfectly fine again, […]

First Trip to Disney

default

This obviously wasn’t my first trip to Disney. Before the Mom Bloggers Mixer, I’d been twice before, both as a child. My husband was told he went as a baby but, of course, he doesn’t remember going, so, in essence, this was his “first”time, as well as five of our six children (Baby Dude went […]

Disney’s Secret (I Can’t Wait to Experience. Again)

default

There’s so much to experience at Disney, there really is. So much I can’t wait to show my children while we’re there. There are the big things, but there’s also little things that stick with you, even after you’ve left. Things you continually think about, close your eyes, crawl up into your brain to relive, […]

Birthday Celebratory Goodness (and My Husband’s Sneak Attack)

default

Today it’s my birthday. I’m not ashamed to say, I am 33 years young today. It has been an emotional, life-changing 32nd year for me, I can’t imagine what my 33rd year will bring. This is the year I finally lost weight. This is the year I finally realized, it’s okay to follow what you […]

One

default

On Sunday, baby dude turned one. One. When exactly did this happen? How is it I woke up and a year slipped by me like a prowler, and suddenly a one-year-old is nuzzling at my breasts? Where is that wrinkly, pink little gangly dude I birthed? With his peach-fuzz hair, his pouty lips and wimpered […]
