T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Home Décor – It’s Not Just For The Kid’s Rooms!

Disney characters a really common theme for nurseries and kids bedrooms – and with good reason! They are fun and easy to coordinate – considering that basically EVERY store sells Disney stuff now. Speaking of Disney stuff – I am always looking for nice “grown up” Disney décor to spruce up my house – and when I went looking recently, I found some GREAT stuff:

Kohl’s just started selling this line of awesome Mickey bathroom décor – check it all out here. I especially love the Mickey “polka dot” pattern!

TGIFdecor7

I love these vintage Disney movie signs – they would look great in a family room or a media room, don’t you think? You can buy them at your local Hobby Lobby

Hallmark sells some great Disney items – like this amazing Cinderella Carriage Silhouette – I actually have this, I received it as a birthday present last year and I LOVE it – it sits on my bedside table

Wouldn’t this be super cute in the kitchen for reminders/to do lists? Check out all the Hallmark Disney goodies here

And I shall leave you with this inspiration – from the Mouse himself…

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

Tomorrow I will be 31 years old (eek!) – and while I don’t exactly love getting older, I do enjoy all the perks that come with it – being an adult, living on my own, making my own decisions, starting my own family, being a homeowner – these are all pretty awesome! At this point, birthdays aren’t really about having a party or getting presents, but more about celebrating all that I am grateful for in my life – like my family (including my baby boy!), friends, health, job…the list goes on, and I feel lucky every day to be living this life!

   31 4

Speaking of luck – I was lucky enough as a kid to get to travel to Walt Disney World every year with my parents – the memories of these trips are ones I will always cherish, and I credit my parents as being the ones who kick-started my Disney obsession. I have traveled back several times as an adult, and enjoyed it even more than when I was a kid – which actually ended up being the inspiration behind starting this blog – showing how much fun Disney can be for everyone (not just kids!)

31 3

For me, birthdays are a great time to reflect on not only the past year, but on yourself as a person – and for me, Disney is a huge part of who I am, and I can’t wait to introduce my son to all the magic in a few years! Until then, I will be dreaming of (and writing about!) the Happiest Place On Earth!

And even though I know I said that birthdays aren’t really about presents anymore, I must admit – there are a few Disney-themed things on my VERY short birthday wish list this year…

31 2

Shutterfly is one of my favorite websites – I love the easy to create photo gifts and prints are super easy to order (you can even do it from your smartphone!), and they just recently released a new line of ready to personalize Disney items – pillows, notebooks, wall decals, placemats – they’re all cute and would make great gifts, but I have to say that the Disney photo book is really the one that stands out for me – I love the pages and the little embellishments you can add – and I am REALLY hoping my husband got me one

31 1

The Disney Alex and Ani bracelets are really popular right now, and they have a ton of cute styles (I have a few, and would love to add a few more to my collection!). Everyone needs a good mug to drink their morning coffee out of – and I am a HUGE alice in wonderland fan – in fact I have “We’re All Mad Here” tattooed on my shoulder (talk about a diehard Disney fan!), and as for the purse – well – that’s a bit of a dream – but everyone needs a Disney wish list, right? Just in case they come in to some money, or some really rich relative wants to buy you something…

While I would love to get these amazing Disney gifts for my birthday, I know that regardless of if I get Disney gifts or no gifts – as long as I have my family and friends, I know it will be great birthday, and I look forward to the year ahead of me too!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My All Time Favorite Trip Pics

I love taking a look back at photos from my trips to Disney – each one holds a special memory – and I love remembering the great times I’ve had there! There are some photos that stand out for me, ones that I always come back to and that make me smile no matter what…

MainStreetCastle

This was one of the first photos taken on our honeymoon – I hadn’t been to Disney in 8 years, and I was so excited to finally be back and standing in my favorite spot – at the base of Main Street, in front of the Castle – with the World at my feet (the DISNEY world that is!)

TGIF Characters

While we were on our honeymoon, we dined at Chef Mickey’s – and when Minnie came to greet us, she made a big fuss over my rings and our new marriage, it was so cute!

IceCream

I FINALLY got to try the Gold Rush peanut butter sundae at Ghiradelli in Downtown Disney a few years ago – it was SO GOOD! Sadly, the location is now closed, but I still have the memory of how yummy it was!

1900 6

There are few things better than waking up on Christmas morning at Walt Disney World – which I was lucky enough to do two years ago! We had breakfast at 1900 Park Fare and enjoyed the amazing buffet and characters – here we are posing in front of the gorgeous tree in the lobby of the Grand Floridian!

Spending Christmas in Disney was amazing – and the most amazing thing of all that we did that week was getting to watch the Osbourne Spectacle of Lights be lit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – they do a little ceremony where Goofy dressed as Santa comes and flips a giant switch and suddenly there’s lights, music, and even snow!

What about you – what are YOUR favorite Disney moments?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Tattoo #3?

I am a big tattoo fan – and I especially love when Disney fans express their devotion through Disney Themed Ink. I’m proud to admit that I am part of the “Disney Tattoo Club” – as I have TWO Disney-inspired tattoos:

Tat 1

Alice In Wonderland is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies – I love both the animated and live action versions, and this quote is the best – it reminds me not only of my love for the movie, but of the fact that everyone is crazy in their own way (which is oddly comforting, don’t you think?)

Tat 2

I got this Walt Disney quote a few years ago – and it’s a reminder that if you really want something, there’s always a way to make it happen for yourself

Outside

So now that I’ve got this little guy running around and making my life absolutely amazing, I want to get a Disney themed tattoo that represents him and my family

 Tat Ohana 2

The thing that immediately comes to mind is the word “Ohana” which means “Family” – and according to Lilo and Stitch “Ohana means family – and family means no one gets left behind, or forgotten” which may be corny, but I don’t care – I love it

Tat Ohana

Apparantly this is a pretty popular tattoo – as there are TONS of variations out there

Tat Ohana Drawing

Personally, I am thinking of doing something like this – with my son’s initials in the heart (please excuse the crudity of the drawing as I am NOT an artist ha!)

I love the idea of combining my love for Disney with my even bigger love for my little guy! What about YOU – do you have a Disney tattoo already, or are you thinking about getting one?

Tat Stitch

That’s right, Stitch <3

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney-Fy Your Bridal Shower With Some Easy DIY’s

I have talked before about how Disney can design you an amazing fairytale wedding with beautiful “Happily Ever After” results, but the reality is that not all of us can afford the Disney pricetag when it comes to wedding planning. There are some great DIY ways to add that Disney Magic into your wedding (check some out here) – but it doesn’t have to stop with the wedding! What about the Bridal Shower? Check out these cute Disney DIY Bridal shower ideas:

    ShowerBling

Bedazzle your own custom Bridal party hoodies or tank tops (they make great gifts!), or you can pay someone to do it (Etsy would be a great place to look!)

ShowerDrinkme

ShowerMadHatter

A Tea Party theme for a shower is pretty popular right now – and a great Disney twist to that would be to have a “Mad Hatter” Alice In Wonderland themed bridal shower

ShowerPrincess

A Princess themed Bridal Shower would be perfect for a Disney Loving Bride To Be – creating something like these labels and place cards could easily be done on the computer for little to no cost!

ShowerInvite2

Speaking of Princess theme….these invites would go along with it perfectly!

ShowerInvite

I must admit – my future sister in law is my inspiration for this post, as she is marrying my brother in law in September, and we are headed to her bridal shower this weekend. Her wedding is going to have an “Up” theme to it, and something like the above invites would go along perfectly with that theme!
