Disney’s Frozen Printables, Coloring Pages, and Storybook App

My family got the chance to see this movie last night at an advanced screening, and I cannot WAIT to post my review on release day! I tell ya, as soon as I saw this teaser trailer, it pretty much solidified my need and want to see this movie: Here’s the full trailer, just in […]

Mickey Mouse Waffles #EggoWaffleOff

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 […]

Disney World Armed Forces Salute 2011

Oh my gosh, Walt Disney World has done it AGAIN!! The military may receive discounted tickets for their service-member and their family members, yes! Thank you so much Disney World for honoring our military again yet another year, it means such a great deal to us! Now, again, there are a few more changes from […]

Happy Veteran’s Day

  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 […]
