T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Check Out This Awesome Disney-Themed Baby Shower!

Ok – so the title of this might be a bit misleading – but I can’t help but brag about how amazing my recent baby shower was! My mother in law made pretty much ALL of the decorations – from the garlands, to the wooden letters, to the silverware holders, to the cupcake holders and the cupcakes themselves – which contain a famous mouse made of brownie inside them! Check it out:

Oh, and aside from the amazing décor – she also went ALL OUT when it came to sewing – curtains and a valance, a crib skirt, quilt, bumpers, blankets, burp clothes, a teddy bear, onesies, teethers – all handmade, and all Mickey themed! This picture isn’t great, but you can see some of the items she worked so hard to make for us! Makes me feel so special – and we are so grateful that our little guy is already so loved (and that he is getting introduced to the Mouse so early in life too!)

 

Don’t worry – even if you or your family isn’t quite so artistically inclined, you can still outfit your baby in plenty of Disney – clothes, bedding, toys and more are available at most major retailers like Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and department stores

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Back To School Cool With Mickey (And Friends!)

Not many kids really countdown to the start of a new school year – and why would they? It signals the end of carefree sunny days spent outside playing, and the start of another year of books, assignments, and routine. There are some ways to get kids excited though – and I personally am a big fan of using a little bribery to make things go smoothly – bribery in Disney form perhaps? Why not outfit your kids with some awesome Disney school supplies that will make going back to school way more fashionable:

SChool Snack

How about an adorable snack box you can fill with treats to tide them over between school and soccer?

School StarWards

Heck, I am not going back to school but even I want this awesome stationary kit featuring the ultimate villian himself – Darth Vader

School Princess

Maybe your little princess needs a royally styled backpack to make going back to school more bearable

SChool Hoodie

I don’t know where you are, but here in Upstate NY the fall mornings can get a bit crisp – so keep them warm with a personalizable hoodie featuring their favorite character

Check out the Disney Store’s full Back to School collection here, and check out your local Wal-Mart/Target/grocery store for plenty of other Disney themed clothes, folders, pens, pencils and much more to get them into that “back to school” spirit!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Birthday To Me!

Today I celebrate 30 years on this fine earth – and 30 years as a Disney lover too! How will I be celebrating? Well, with a pedicure, and some dinner prepared by my man (because not only should one not have to cook on their birthday, but I am also almost 8 months pregnant – all the more reason that a foot rub and a hot meal served to me are highly appreciated luxuries these days!)

So what’s on my birthday wish list this year? Well, it may not shock you, but its chock full’o’Disney:

 TGIF Bday2

Disney Alex and Ani is pretty high on the list – they have some great new styles available now that I think would look great dangling from my wrist

TGIF Bday1

One can never have enough Disney Kitchen items, don’t you think? I love these Mickey’s Diner items – aren’t they great? Check out all the Disney Store’s Kitchenware section for more!

TGIF Bday3

I had a shirt JUST like this when I was a kid – it was neon pink but had the same Mickey and Minnie graphic on it – I guess the 80’s are back in? Check it out here

TGIF Bday4

And just because they are adorable – I sure wouldn’t mind getting a nice cross body Vera Bradly Disney bag

Even if I don’t get any of the items off my Disney wish list, I know I will have a great birthday full of friends, fun, food, and relaxation – and really, what is better than that?

TGIF!

Saying Farewell To The World’s Greatest Genie – Robin Williams

I am sure that by now, you have all heard the shocking news of Robin William’s death which occurred Monday evening. America has had so many laughs thanks to him and his many movie roles and stand up acts, and he will always be remembered for the joy he brought to us all.

Robin-Williams-Genie

Aladdin was one of the first movies I remember seeing in the theater, and I watched it so much I wore out the VHS (remember those?). The main reason this movie was such a hit can really be attributed to Robin William’s amazing portrayal of the Genie – he made us laugh and as we all know, laughter can cure whatever ails you!

aladdin-genie

Unfortunately, laughter wasn’t enough for Robin, as he had some internal battles that he was dealing with which ultimately lead to his death, you can read more about the demons that plagued the actor here

RIP Robin – your legacy will live on for generations to come, and thanks for making me laugh when I really needed it
