Halloween is JUST around the corner, and if your house is anything like mine, you’ve been decorating and getting ready to celebrate with candy, costumes, and fun! Speaking of costumes – it’s really the best part of Halloween isn’t it? Getting to dress up as literally anything else you want to dress up as for one whole day? It’s so fun to dress up, and as a parent it’s even more fun to see your kids choose a costume and act the part and really get into the Halloween Spirit!
If your kid is a big Disney/Marvel fan (like mine is!) Then the Disney Store has you covered – with a TON of costume options – Princesses, Superheroes, and everything in between!
Buzz Lightyear and Spiderman are just a few of the offerings for little boys – mine would LOVE to go dressed as either one for Halloween!
If you tend to be more of the procrastinating type, OR if your little one suddenly changes their mind LAST minute and you need to get something under a time crunch – don’t worry, you still have PLENTY of Disney-themed options available to you at stores like Target and Wal-Mart (like these adorable options!)
Happy Costume Hunting – and TGIF!

This weekend we are celebrating my son’s 3rd birthday – and I am just astounded at how quickly three years went by
From a tiny, chunky smiley little guy…
To a curious toddler who loves to laugh
…To a funny, silly, happy, talkative 3 year old (who loves all things DISNEY, of course!)
So many amazing memories made over the past 3 years, and next year we will head to Disney World for this little guy’s first trip – and I can’t wait to make even more amazing memories with him. Watching him experience things for the first time has been so much fun – and Walt Disney World is no exception – I can’t wait to see what he likes, what makes him laugh, smile, scares him, what he wants to ride again and again – it’s so cool watching kids grow up – and I may be biased, but I think I got myself a pretty great one here.
Happy 3rd Birthday John!
Now if anyone needs me I will be crying in the corner – part sad as my baby is growing so fast, part happy as he is turning into such an amazing little man
This week my husband, son and I headed to Cleveland Ohio for a little getaway/family vacation. We arrived Wednesday and have been having a TON of fun so far:
It’s our first real trip away, just the three of us, and we are so pumped to be exploring a new place! Checked out the amazing zoo they have here and are headed to the rock and roll hall of fame today!
…And of course, what would any trip be without a little shopping…DISNEY Store shopping specifically!
We let our boy pick out a toy – and he picked Buzz Lightyear – and has not put him down since. Even begged to bring him to bed but I managed to convince him that Buzz wouldn’t be the best cuddle buddy ha
It may seem strange to some to go shopping at a mall on vacation, but we don’t have a Disney Store at home, so this is the closest I can get to that “Disney Magic” feeling (without heading to Florida – and trust me this is a MUCH cheaper option!)
A few weeks ago I wrote about how pumped I was for the Fall Season to begin at Walt Disney World – and while that might have been a bit premature with it barely being September and all – now I can say with certainty that fall is TRULY upon us (it officially started yesterday!) so that means all things FALL are HERE (whether you like it or not, ha!)
WDW’s Magic Kingdom is all dressed up for fall – and even if you aren’t a fall fan, you can surely appreciate the awesomeness of this photo – creepy, spooky, and full of fall flair! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is in full swing, and let’s just say that fall is a great time to head to Walt Disney World – the food, décor, merchandise and overall spirit of autumn are all in the air!

Normally on Fridays I like to bring you a fun, lighthearted look at something fun and Disney-themed with these TGIF pic posts- but this week I gotta say – I am having trouble coming up with something fun to post – in light of the destruction that has been happening all over – fires, floods, earthquakes – and most recently – Hurricane Irma who spun her way through Florida earlier this week leaving destruction and devastation in her path
I am not going to comment on the Hurricane specifically – other than to say I hope everyone staying at/working at/living near Disney World and every other place effected is safe and sound and able to move forward
Luckily – myself and my family were not personally effected by the hurricane or other natural disasters that have recently plagued our planet – and for that I am so grateful. Blessed beyond words to not have to go through that – and it just makes me even more eager to practice gratitude daily – something I always try to do. This week’s pictures are brought to you by the things I am most grateful for:
My son, my husband, my dog, friends/family, health, a stable job, a home, laughter, hugs and kisses – these are the things I am grateful for today, everyday – always.
TGIF – and to those affected by Irma and the rest of the problems of the country/world – stay strong, and search for that glimmer of hope – it may be small, but it’s there
