T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney – As Modeled By The World’s Cutest Baby (Part 1)

I don’t have much of an introduction for this series of photos – except to say that my kid is adorable. And looks even more adorable when donning super cute Disney themed clothes

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: My Favorite Disney Moments With My Favorite Birthday Boy

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVE to my amazing husband – he is not only all around awesome at being married to me (not always an easy task I am sure), but he’s a great dad and friend too! We have had a lot of great times together, and we have been blessed enough to be able to travel to Walt Disney World 4 times together – here’s a recap of some of my fave Disney moments with my fave guy:

PartyOfTwo

There were many delicious meals shared at WDW with my man – we both love trying new foods, and Disney has some amazing restaurants – so it’s the perfect place for foodies like us!

There’s no better place to be than The Magic Kingdom, am I right?

Posing with characters is fun no matter how old you are

Ok, I know this one isn’t a Disney picture – but the cuteness makes up for that, right? I am so grateful for my family and can’t wait to make more Disney memories with them

TGIF – and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREW – may your day be as amazing as you are!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Redecorate With These Awesome Disney Finds!

I don’t know about you, but I have a TON of things I want to get done in 2016: things to clean, things to accomplish, things to change – and things to make better, too! One of the things that’s on my many lists this year is to spruce up the house – do a deep clean and then do some redecorating too, and I am hoping to get some more Disney into my design scheme. If you’re considering doing some redecorating in 2016, then you’ll definitely want to check these out:

       rooms1

You don’t have to be an artist to create an awesome Disney-themed kid’s room – decals are available online or at a lot of local retailers, and anyone can slap a fresh coat of paint on some old furniture to spruce it up!

rooms3

Disney bedrooms aren’t just for the little ones – using black, white and a splash of red with some Mickey décor can really make for a sharp looking adult bedroom too!

Rooms5

Mickey perks up even the smallest space – and the bathroom is a great space to freshen up (since it gets a lot of use!). Kohl’s has some great Disney bath accessories right now, and they are pretty affordable too!

rooms7

rooms6

I love the idea of getting to display all my favorite Disney kitchen ware (most of which I brought back from the Parks), and putting up shelves or hooks in a dining or kitchen area is pretty simple, and a great way to decorate too

rooms8

One of my favorite Disney trip souvenirs is the photos I take while at WDW – I love looking over them and then printing the best ones for framing and albums. A Disney trip vacation photo wall is a great way to express your love for Disney anywhere you have a blank wall – and you can add things like a pin shadow box too

Hopefully these have inspired you to head to your local home improvement store and get some things done around the house – I know I can’t wait to infuse a little bit more Disney into my house this year!

Forget The Flowers – I want DISNEY This Valentine’s Day

I was at Target a few days after Christmas – hoping to score some good post – holiday deals (which I did – half off Reese’s peanut butter cups? Yes PLEASE), and next to the discounted wrapping paper and LED light strands were items for Valentine’s Day, St Patrick’s Day, and Easter. Now – you might think I’m now going to say “why is this stuff out so early?” and complain about the commercialization of our country – but I am NOT. Why not? Because I love holidays, and I love to plan ahead – so I am actually kind of psyched to see this stuff out at the stores (the cheese stands alone on this, I realize)

Of the three aforementioned holidays, Valentine’s Day is my favorite – my husband and I don’t make a big deal out of it usually, but I love thinking of little things to make or buy him, things with sentimental value that really mean something to him. After being together for ten years, that can get tricky – but that’s half the fun of it! As a Disney lover, I of course love receiving Disney themed items for any and all holidays/celebrations – because who can tell a love story better than Disney? No one. This year I am going to leave not-so-subtle hints for my husband in hopes that he will skip the roses in favor of something way better:

You can have these custom made with your names – check it out here

Jewelry is always a good go-to present for Valentine’s Day – check out the Disney options here

vdayframe

This frame would be perfect for displaying a cure snapshot of you and your hunny – check it and others out here

If you’re a fellow Disney lover like me, maybe you can convince your sweetie to get you one of these awesome gifts this Valentine’s Day. And if you don’t have a Valentine – these make perfect “to me from me” presents too!

DisneyGifts Cards

As much as I would love to receive any of these great gifts, the truth is – a homemade gift is even better than something store bought! And not to brag, but my husband has made me some awesome cards and gifts over the years – and I love every single one and am so grateful he takes the time to create these for me – I’m a lucky girl to have such a great Valentine!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Getting In The (Disney!) Christmas Spirit!

It’s December, Thanksgiving is behind us – and that means we have officially entered CHRISTMAS SEASON! Christmas songs, Christmas cookies, decorating the tree, spending time with family and friends, shopping galore – I can’t wait to do it all! I also really like to do it all with a Disney flair – here are some of my family’s Disney Christmas traditions:

We always watch tons of movies and specials this month, and these are two of my very favorites. Mickey’s Christmas Carol is a retelling of the classic Dickens tale, and Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too follows our 100 Acre Wood friends on an adventure to get their letter to Santa

I love seeing pictures people post on various Disney websites of all the amazing Christmas décor at the Disney Parks – I am lucky enough to have been able to visit twice during this season, and it’s truly a magical time. Since I can’t go this year, I will settle for reminiscing and going through my pictures – and enjoying the posts/pictures from those at the Parks!

Check out some great Disney themed gift ideas here – these will definitely get you in the Disney Holiday Spirit!

ABC’s “The Muppets” – Yay Or Nay?

Muppets Manhattan

I have always been a BIG fan of the Muppets – when I was a kid, I used to beg my parents to take me to Blockbuster to rent the video (yep, as in a video store full of VHS tapes) of “Muppets Take Manhattan” every weekend – and most weekends they obliged, because who can resist a movie full of snarky, hilarious puppets – with a happy ending? I know I can’t!

Muppets15

Well, for those of you who don’t know – THE MUPPETS ARE BACK! They have a new half hour sitcom on ABC, and the premise is they all work on the show “Up Late With Miss Piggy” – a late night talk show where Miss Piggy is the host, and Kermit is the executive producer – with all the characters working assorted roles within the television studio. It’s very similar to the show “The Office”, and also reminds me a bit of Modern Family

muppets15 2

Here’s the thing….I really, really WANT to love this show. I love all the components – Muppets? Yep. Modern family/The Office dry wit/humor? Yep. Anything the Muppets do? Yep – love that too. However. I really don’t love the show. It has it’s funny moments, but I feel it’s trying too hard to be funny, and they are also having WAY too many celebrity guests on each episode. Obviously they need guests on Miss Piggy’s “talk show” – but they are stuffing way too many celebs into each episode.

I will continue to watch it, in hopes that maybe there are some funny holiday themed episodes coming up that might make me change my mind…but for now? I give it a solid B-, it’s fine, not great, but I think it can have some potential and room to grow into something great (and I hope it does before the network cancels it!)

I would love to know YOUR thoughts on this new show – do you love it? Hate it? Tolerate it? Let me know!
