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 – Those Movies Are HOW Old?

I was reading recently on the Disney Parks Blog that the Lion King turned 21, and that Pocahontas turned 20 – hard to believe, as I remember when both of these first came out, and I remember going to see The Lion King in theaters!

Got me to thinking – how old are some of the other Animated Disney Classics?

SnowWhite

Snow White is the oldest – originally released in theaters in 1937

Cinderella

My absolute favorite Disney movie – Cinderella – first graced the big screen in 1950. Hard to believe that it was that long ago, isn’t it?

AliceInWonderland

Followed the next year by Alice In Wonderland in 1951

TheLittleMermaid

Jump ahead a little to this classic – released in 1989 – 26 years ago

Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991)

This “Tale as old as time” came out in 1991

TheLionKing

In 1994 I was 10 – and vividly remember seeing this at the movies

Wreck-It-Ralph

2012 brought us the release of Wreck-It Ralph – which didn’t get much publicity as it should have in my opinion – I loved this movie!

INside Out

Disney’s newest movie was released just last week to rave reviews – will YOU be heading to see Inside Out?

These Disney Classics have stood the test of time, and I can’t wait to see what else they come up with!

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

4 1

Happy 4th of July! How will you be spending this holiday? A picnic, or fireworks perhaps? There are few things more patriotic than celebrating our nation’s birthday, and why not celebrate it in style this year?

4 3

Dress your little one in this adorable swimsuit that’s perfect for the 4th

4 4

…Because who DOESN’T heart USA?

4 5

Must. Buy. Them. All. These are too cute

4.6

Tons of stores have Disney clothing for kids – Walmart, Target, Kohl’s and more – but if you want something custom made (like these adult polos) – head over to Etsy

4 2

Ok, I know the cupcake isn’t clothes – but – doesn’t it look amazing? I would love to be scarfing this down while enjoying some fireworks at Disney World!

TGIF – and Happy Independence Day!

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!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Headed To The Beach!

I may not have any Disney trips planned in the near future, but my family is going to be taking our first ever “family vacation” to Cape Cod this September! We will be renting a house and just relaxing and hopefully spending a TON of time on the BEACH – I can’t wait to see my son play in the sand and let him touch his feet in the ocean!

And of course – one cannot head to the beach without the proper DISNEY attire….

Beach Towel1 Beach towel2

I ordered these personalized beach towels for my son and my best friend’s daughter – because everyone needs their own beach towel (I almost ordered one for myself and now looking back am not sure why I didn’t…hmm)

BEach Rashguard

Better protect my little guy from the sun with one of these rash guard shirts – featuring Mickey Mouse!

Beach Nemo

Or perhaps something from the Finding Nemo swim collection would suit your little one?

Beach Ariel

Once you have the beach towel, it’s hard not to go all out with the matching swimsuit, bag, sandals, and sunglasses (don’t worry, it’s ok if you do – I don’t judge!)

Check out the Disney Store’s Swim Shop for more awesome summer looks!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney-Themed Mother’s Day Ideas

Hard to believe it’s already May, isn’t it? But here we are – another Spring upon us – the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, the rain is falling (depending on where you live, it may be falling a LOT), and the temperature is slowly inching upward. Spring brings with it plenty of great things to look forward to – picnics, long strolls around the neighborhood, playing outside, longer days, and of course – Mother’s Day! In case you didn’t know, Mother’s Day is May 10th this year (yeah, as in NEXT SUNDAY!) – but don’t worry if you haven’t gotten a gift for mom yet, because I’ve got some great ideas for you (with a DISNEY flair, of course!)

Mday Frame

Photos are always a great gift for mom – a framed memory of a great Disney trip perhaps? These frames are great because they can be personalized, but there are plenty of other choices too – check out the Photos and Memories section of the Disney Store online for a whole bunch of album and frame options

7501002529714

What woman doesn’t love receiving jewelry as a gift? This set is really affordable, but if you’re looking for something a bit fancier, don’t worry – The Disney Store has got you covered there, too

Mday Vera

Vera Bradley bags and accessories are super popular right now – so if your mom is a fan, then I suggest you check out the Disney Vera Bradley Collection for a new tote or cute crossbody purse for Mom

Mday Mug

I don’t know many mothers who can survive without coffee (myself included!). Order mom a cute mug and gift it paired with a bag of her favorite brew

Mday Mom

I personally can’t wait to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom and my little guy this year – and I really hope she likes the gift I got her, and hopefully you’re inspired by this to pick out a great Disney gift for your mom too!
