T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – All Time Favorite Disney Moments

There are some vacation memories that stand out in our minds as being the perfect moment – and throughout all my trips to Disney, I have definitely had a BUNCH of these – moments where I just stop and think “wow, this is amazing and perfect and I wish this could last forever!” Of course, it can’t last forever – but the memory of it can, and so can the pictures (my personal favorite souvenir of all time!). Check out some of my top Disney moments:

???????????????????????????????

When my husband and I went to Disney for our honeymoon, I hadn’t been there in over 7 years – and when I stood at the start of Main Street and stared down at the Castle in the distance – I got a little misty eyed – and the only thought I had was “I’m FINALLY home”

Osb Lights1

My parents, husband and I spent the week of Christmas at Walt Disney World two years ago – and we had SO MUCH FUN! Waking up at Disney on Christmas day has to be the ultimate in Christmas dreams come true (thanks Santa!), but I have to say the best moment of the whole trip was when we went to see the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights on Christmas Day. We went early so we could see them be lit, and it was an amazing experience – the music, the lights, the (fake) snow, it was the absolute perfect thing to do on Christmas Day and I think of that memory often

Duffy

When Duffy The Disney Bear came on the scene, I just thought he was the cutest thing – and I loved the backstory of how Minnie made him for Mickey so he wouldn’t be lonely on long trips. So I knew I had to meet him – pronto. I made my way to his character meet and greet in Epcot, and was saddened to see that he wasn’t there – but after only a few minutes, he appeared and I got to meet him! I was so excited, and I would say this was definitely one of my favorite character encounters ever!

I have been lucky enough to get to travel to Disneyland once – and it was such a great experience! I love how different it is from Disney World, and yet how similar it is too (yeah, that seems weird to say, but it’s true!) and I love that it was a place where Walt actually went and took his family there, and that he created from the ground up

Vacations are a perfect place to have fun, relax, and make memories with the ones you love! I am so grateful and lucky to have gotten to travel to Disney and have these moments with my family – and I can’t WAIT to bring my little guy to Disney so he can start making memories of his own!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Cheers!

There’s no better time to celebrate life, family and love than when you’re enjoying an amazing vacation. Personally, I would vacation at Walt Disney World every year if I could, and even though many people think Walt Disney World is mainly a place for kids/families, they do cater to the adult crowd – by offering amazing food and plenty of choice drinks too! Check out some of these awesome drinks you’ll find around Walt Disney World:

  DrinkMargarita

Lime Raspberry Margarita – pair this with some chips and salsa at La Hacienda De San Angel in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion

???????????????????????????????

These beers are made in house at Big River Grille & Brewing Works at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort – we have been a few times, and both my husband and father have enjoyed the assortment and getting to talk to the Brewmaster and ask him questions

DrinkCiderDark

Over in Epcot’s United Kingdom, you’ll find the Rose and Crown Pub – home to this drink – Strongbow Cider with a shot of Crème de Cassis, the “Cider and Dark”

DrinkJiko

Wine fans will want to check out the extensive collection of South African wines found at Jiko – the Cooking Place – which is an amazingly innovative restaurant over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

Cheers – and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – HAPPY BIRTHDAY To The World’s BEST Husband!

Today is a very special day for my family – it’s my husband’s 28th birthday! WOO HOO! I am so excited to get to celebrate another birthday with him, it’s always fun to spoil him and treat him like a king – after all, he is the best husband/father/friend/person ever!

Seriously though, he is an amazing person inside and out – he’s kind and caring, funny, smart, and he is the most amazing dad to our beautiful 3 month old son and our 2 year old dog!

Another reason why he is so great is that he not only puts up with my Disney addiction – but he actually likes Disney too! We have gone several times together, and had so much fun!

I love getting to travel to my absolute favorite place and making memories with my absolute favorite guy! He’s the perfect travel companion – always up for anything and willing to walk around the Parks all day with me – going on rides and shopping and eating (one of his fave things to do at Disney) and seeing shows – we do it all, and I am so glad I have him to do it with

A Big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him, and to everyone else – Happy Friday (and TGIF!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Year, New Resolutions!

HAPPY 2015! Can’t believe Christmas is over and it’s a whole new year already! I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to take on 2015 and all the challenges and good times it is sure to bring! I like to make New Year’s Resolutions, and I have come up with some for this year:

Introducing my baby boy to the world of Disney, starting with these:

TGIF NY 1

Yeah, that’s right – Disney Videos! Actual VHS tapes of basically all the classics, and not only will this introduce him to Walt’s classics, but it will also teach him what a VCR is (something he otherwise would never have known, because who uses those anymore anyway? Well, me, duh!)

TGIF NY 2

Aside from videos, it’s also never too early to teach him about the Disney Parks too – he will need a full education on what it’s like to visit the happiest place on earth, and I hereby resolve to start that education ASAP!

TGIF NY 3

Another one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to cook more and to try new recipes. Lucky for me, Disney can help me out with that, with their assortment of cookbooks that contain recipes from the Disney Parks and Resorts!

IMG_32287973495935

My last resolution is the most important to me – and that is to spend as much time as I can with my family and get to watch my baby grow into a little boy – they grow up fast, and I won’t be missing a single minute of it. Before I know it, he will be tall enough to go on all the Rides at Walt Disney World! I can’t wait to take him – but for now, I will focus on enjoying this stage of his life and helping him learn and grow

What about you – do you make any New Years Resolutions? Are they Disney related?

TGIF and Happy New Year to all!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Christmas Cheer At Home!

The countdown to Christmas is on – less than three weeks remain until Santa comes for a visit! Last Christmas I was lucky enough to be vacationing at Walt Disney World – and this year, while I won’t be away on vacation, I will be getting to celebrate my son’s first Christmas! He is only 2 months old so he won’t really know what’s going on, but we are still super excited- he already “helped” us decorate the tree and the house, and of COURSE the decor includes some awesome Disney touches! Check them out:

20141204_113140

This one is new this year – to celebrate ournewest family member’s first Christmas!

20141204_113147

This was a gift from a friend – I just love the design and it looks great on the tree!

20141204_113154

Picked this one up last year at WDW – loved the drawing and detail

20141204_113202

This was a honeymoon purchase – had to commemorate our first trip as a married couple somehow!

20141204_113214

Picked this one up on our 2011 Disney trip – we went a few weeks before Christmas and had such a great time!

20141204_113227

Minnie walking her little pup was a gift from a close friend – who knows how much I love my dog Walter (who was of course named after Mr Disney!)

20141204_113243

This is actually a framed greeting card – when we were at the Art of Disney Store in Downtown Disney last December, the artist was actually there displaying a lot of his Disney sketches, and we fell in love with this one so we bought some cards but I couldn’t resist putting one on display!

20141204_113315

This was actually a gift we received at our baby shower for our son – he’s a bit young to get to use it now, but we will certainly be setting it up around the Christmas tree for that extra little Disney magic!

What about you – do you like to decorate Disney for the holidays? Personally I love it – it reminds me of my favorite place while celebrating my favorite holiday!

TGIF!
