T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Being Thankful

Thanksgiving is fast approaching (it’s less than a week away!), and I know once it arrives it will go quickly and then it will be Christmas season – with its flurry of shopping, parties, baking, wrapping, and well ACTUAL flurries too (for some of us anyway!) – needless to say, I am betting the rest of this year will FLY by – so I wanted to take a moment to really think about what I am thankful for this year. And I realized that it could best be summed up by this one picture:

My husband, son, and dog. These three are what I am most thankful for this year

Of course there’s much else to be thankful for too: family, employment, good health, friends, laughter, and of course DISNEY!

What about you – what are YOU thankful for this year?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Christmas Wish Lists

We may only be partly through November, but I know I for one have already gotten a bunch of Christmas shopping done – I like to plan ahead, and I like making lists, too! So while I plug away at ticking things off my “To Do/To Buy” list, I am also working on making a Wish List. You’re never too old to make a list of things you hope “Santa” will bring you, and since I am a Disney fanatic, of course my Christmas Wish List Is Full of Disney:

     adult-hoodie

Is it slightly ridiculous to wish for a hoodie with ears at 32 years old? Probably. But do I care? NO WAY – just look at how cute this thing is!!!

pursexmas
Ok well – this one is probably a bit unrealistic to wish for, but hey, it’s MY wish list – therefore I can put whatever I want on it!
holidaymug10
With a toddler to look after, plus shopping, baking, entertaining, traveling, wrapping, and MUCH more to do this holiday season – I think I can safely say that I will need MUCH coffee to get me through – and this mug would certainly help put me in that holiday spirit!

?

Ok well, enough about me – let’s talk about the guy I can’t seem to stop shopping for.

My 2 year old is definitely a “Disney addict in training”,

because his wish list this year is pretty heavily Disney-populated too:
microphone
Since he likes to pick up dog toys and pretend they are microphones, I thought this one would be a good choice (less sharp and heavy than the dog toys at least!)
shelves
With more toys does NOT come more space in my house – so any way I can find to store all his stuff is a win for me – plus these have the Mouse himself on them – so it’s a win/win for me and my Mickey-obsessed little man!
pjs
I couldn’t help myself on these – he will look so dang cute!

Hopefully this has inspired you to get going on your own wish list – and your to do list for the holidays! TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week Post – That Kid’s Smile…

This week’s picture selection comes straight from my crazy toddler – who makes me laugh every day with his silliness. On Halloween I got out my Minnie Mouse ears to wear while we brought him trick or treating (his first time!) so that I at least wouldn’t be totally without costume, but my son had other ideas for them…

I am pretty sure there is no cuter Minnie Mouse ever in the history of the world, am I right?

Stay tuned next week for what’s on this kids (and MY) Disney Christmas wish lists (since Halloween is over that means it’s basically Christmas, right?)

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Halloween!

The air is crisp, the leaves have turned, the temperature has dropped, pumpkin everything is everywhere – there’s no doubt about it now – FALL has definitely arrived! In fact, it’s almost time to celebrate Halloween, and for me, Halloween means candy, costumes, plenty of scary movies, and of course – PUMPKINS! This year we painted pumpkins (since my little man isn’t quite old enough to help carve yet), but I can’t wait until he is old enough to help plan and decide on how to carve his very own “Jack O Lantern”! I am not-so-secretly hoping he decides on a super awesome Disney design:

Oh, and just for fun – here are some snaps of my little man in his costumes – he makes an adorable Batman AND Charlie Brown, don’t you think?

TGIF – and Happy Halloween!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My Babe Turns TWO!

WARNING: Parental gushing ahead….You’ve been warned…

Tomorrow my baby boy turns TWO – it is insane – I can’t believe he is two and that the last two years have gone by as quickly as they have. He is quite the little man – funny, always smiling, always in motion, and loves hugs, cheese, and of course Mickey Mouse!

Today’s pic of the week is in honor of the birthday boy – tomorrow we will celebrate his life and the past year with our family and friends – and I can’t wait to party, and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings too!

I can’t help but feel like the luckiest woman in the world as I write this – what a guy he is, and I am just so grateful to be his mom

TGIF – and Happy 2nd Birthday to my favorite little man!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: My Top Picks For Disney Halloween Costumes

Halloween is coming up! Ok – maybe it’s still a month away, but hey – tomorrow will be October, and that means all things spooky and scary (including scary movies on TV like 24/7 which is a DREAM come true for me!), and it also means it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to be for Halloween! As a HUGE Disney fanatic, my first thoughts obviously go to some of my favorite Disney characters. And in doing my “research” (aka scrolling through google/pinterest/Disney facebook forums), I came across some people who are legit killing it and are so on top of their costume game it’s downright SCARY! Check out my picks for top Disney Halloween Costumes:

costumes-ursula

Best DIY – This is dedication – I mean really – putting purple makeup all over yourself cannot be an easy or fast process – but it’s worth it for the end result of this amazing Ursula getup

costumes-couple

Best Couples Costume – Ok so Mickey and Minnie would be the obvious choice here, which is probably why I love this so much – you don’t see many Donald (or Daisy!) costumes, and I love that they went for the DIY on this, too!

costumes-baby

Cutest Disney Babe – I know my toddler would hate me for this (don’t worry I won’t be subjecting him to this!) – as I am sure it’s thick, uncomfortable, and hot as heck with that giant hood piece – but could it be any cuter? I mean really, a baby Fozzy costume – wokka wokka!!

costumes-funniest

Funniest – If you’ve been to Walt Disney World then you might have seen these cards – they hand them out randomly as you enter a ride queue, and they help determine the wait time for the ride. I know I always feel so special when I get chosen to carry one, and so when I stumbled across this costume I just had to share it (hey, it made me laugh!)

costume-store-bought

Best Store-Bought – For me it just doesn’t get any cuter than a little girl dressed as a Disney Princess – and the Disney Store as well as costume stores like Party City sell some super cute princess frocks (and accessories too!)

So what will it be for you – a classic Mickey, or another of your favorite Disney characters? I would love to know – tell me in the comments! TGIF!
