T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Lovely Gifts For Your Love

Valentine’s Day is upon us! That’s right – less than a week remains until everyone’s favorite “Hallmark Holiday” – and if you haven’t started your shopping or pre-ordered your roses for your Love – fear not! As I am here to help you with all your romantic gifting needs – and of course the best gifts are always Disney-themed, right?

VD18 1

This is on the TOP of my Valentine’s Wish list – what an adorable bangle (gotta love the Disney Alex and Ani – I know I do!)

VD18 2

Any Star Wars loving guy would LOVE to receive this amazing watch for Valentine’s Day (or any day, really!)

VD318

What a cute little plush Lady & The Tramp set for kids – and what a classic love story!

My son – who has NO IDEA what Valentine’s Day actually is or what it means – loves running around screaming “it’s almost VALENTINE’S DAY!” so luckily I don’t think either my husband or I will forget to celebrate or get each other gifts – and hopefully this can serve as a PSA to you (who may have forgotten Valentine’s is coming up quick?)

And if all else fails, there is always candy and Jewelry, right?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Christmas Smiles All Around!

I don’t know about you – but in our house we have been celebrating Christmas for a couple weeks now – cookies, decorating, crafts, songs, movies – it’s been so much fun doing it all with my little family and seeing my 3 year old son actually start to understand and enjoy Christmas this year!

I think the best gift I could ever get this year is smiles from this little man – and I must have been on the “nice” list – because he seems to smile all the time – and I couldn’t be more glad to be spending Christmas with him

Here’s hoping your Holiday is full of laughter, fun, magic, family, and friends – MERRY CHRISTMAS and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top Disney Toys That EVERY Kid Will Love

I don’t know about you but I am DEEP in Christmas prep – like – shoulder deep – cookies, wrapping, decorating, Santa-ing – it’s ALL happening over here – the season is in FULL FORCE at our house. And if you’re like me, you probably have some little ones on your shopping list that you haven’t bought for yet because you have NO idea what to get them. Well – join the club – cousins, friends of your kids, nieces/nephews – it’s hard to pick out something they will like! Luckily – I have done some research for you – and come up with these Top Disney Toy Picks:

XmasToys1

Dress Up Clothes – because what little girl doesn’t want to dress as their favorite Disney Princess?

Xmastoys2

Mickey’s Clubhouse – Anyone with a little one knows how much they love Mickey – EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM love him – no matter what age. So this playset is perfect for hours of fun

XmasToys3

Fun for the whole family! (and if you think this isn’t a toy – hand your little one a stack of the cards and watch them “play” with it for hours – my son LOVES pretending to play on his own and looking at the pictures on the cards)

At the end of the day, kids want TOYS for Christmas. Clothes, candy, books – those are all well and good, but let’s be real – it’s the toys they want to unwrap. So, stick with these awesome toys and you will be the coolest mom/aunt/friend/cousin ever!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Full Speed Ahead To CHRISTMAS!

Ok, I know what you’re thinking – it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and this chick is writing about Christmas? Well – yes. Yes I am. Not only am I a notorious over-planner (meaning I love lists and like to plan wayyyy way ahead), but I am also a mom – which means not only do I have to bake, send cards, wrap gifts, decorate – but I also have to ensure that I am creating that Christmas magic for my son, too!

XmasCraft5
Which honestly I am SO THRILLED to do – this year he is 3 and finally old enough to start to understand Christmas, and how Santa operates – that part he is SUPER aware of – “Sant bring me that toy?” is one of his new phrases. Because of that, and also because of the fact that he is a lot more aware this year, we are also going to try and include him in on our annual charity work – donating to those in need – warm winter clothes, food, toys – we will bring him along so he can help pick it all out. We are trying to get him to understand that not everyone can afford new toys every Christmas – and I am hoping this is a message that sticks with him for years to come!

Another thing he is super into (aside from what Santa may bring him of course) right now is crafts – he LOVES little projects – I have found that pre-packaged ones from craft stores that include stuff like self adhesive parts are a HUGE hit with him – and so since he ALSO loves Disney, I thought why not try and find some Disney Craft projects for him to try?

Xmascraft4

My son is BIG into Monsters Inc right now – so this Ornament would be right up his alley!

Xmascraft3

Considering that he is always grabbing the black drink coasters and pretending they are his “Mickey Ears” – I think this would be a hit, too

Xmascraft2

Alien Elves – so cute!

XmasCraft1

Not sure what he would enjoy more- creating this adorable Candy Box, or eating the candy we put in it (ok – I am sure – the box would be a hit but the candy wins every time ha)

Hopefully these help get you and your little ones into the Christmas spirit – TGIF – and happy crafting!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Minnie’s (Many!) Makeovers

MinnieYears1

Minnie Mouse first made her appearance in November 1928 – in the famous short Steamboat Willie! She has changed so much since then, so I thought it would be fun to take a look back at her different styles throughout the years:

MinnieYears4        Minnie years 5Minnieyears3

MinnieYears2

Minnie and Mickey are one of the world’s most well-known couples – and she isn’t the only one who has changed over the years – check out some of Mickey’s past styles here

She’s had MANY looks throughout the years, but one thing remains the same – Minnie’s style is iconic and classic and always amazing!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Gear Up For Halloween With These Awesome (Disney!) Costumes!

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!

Costumes2

Costumes1

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!

Costumes3

 

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!
