T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy 30th To My “Mickey”

30th-1

This week my husband turned 30 – and I got to thinking about our past (almost 11 years together!), and about just how grateful I am for him. He’s an amazing friend, husband, and dad – and I hope he knows just how much he means to me

30th-2

30th-3

30th-4 30th-5

He supports my love of Disney, and has traveled there with me many times – and we have so many fond memories of those trips

30th-6 30th-7

Here’s to millions more memories (Disney and otherwise!)

TGIF – and HAPPY 30th to the Mickey to my Minnie

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Accessories For The Apple Lover

Ok – I would like to preface this post by saying that I am a nerd, and am well aware of it, and accept it as reality – so that makes the fact that I am writing about Disney accessories for Apple devices Ok and normal (well, at least kind of anyway!)

I recently switched (back) to having an iphone, and I also just purchased an Apple watch – and I have to say, it’s pretty cool! I like all the things both devices can do, and I also love the fact that there are tons of ways to Disney-fy them:

minniecase

Love this – Minnie is so sassy isn’t she (reminds me of myself!). Check out the collection of official Disney Store phone cases here

minniespeaker

Speaking of Minnie – there are a ton of bluetooth speakers available out there that scream “DISNEY FAN!”

starwarsspeaker

Or if sparkles aren’t your thing, maybe something a bit more manly and Star-wars themed for your listening needs?

watchears

Obviously the first thing I did when setting up my Apple Watch was change the watch face to Mickey (it comes with it built right in!), and I am thinking the second thing I need to do is order this awesome watch case with Mickey ears!

This Ipad case is so cute that it makes me want an Ipad – well – maybe for my birthday, ha!

The point is – there are tons of ways to deck out your favorite devices with a Disney flair, to really personalize them and make them your own! They also make great gifts for the Disney lover in your life

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Disney Gifts For A Disney Loving Boy (And His Mom!)

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas – and that you got to enjoy friends, family, food, and FUN! Our Christmas was great – my son had the best time, and of course he received TONS of great presents – many of which had a DISNEY theme to them:

gift3

A super comfy Mickey couch (perfect for enjoying viewings of what else? Disney movies, of course!)

gift2

A super amazing Mickey sleeping bag made by my mother in law – with no pattern (she really is talented!)

gift4

This was a big hit, as you can imagine!

gift1

And a super cool Mickey fire truck, too!

gift5

He wasn’t the only one who got in on the Disney gifts – I was lucky enough to receive this amazing mug I have been drooling over for a while now from my husband – it’s perfect for me as I LOVE mugs, and I LOVE to bake!

What about you – did you get everything on your Disney wish list this year? If not – don’t worry – there’s always next year!

TGIF, and Happy New Year!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  xmas16-2

I may not be celebrating Christmas Day at Walt Disney World this year, but I am lucky enough to have done so a few years back – it was the best Christmas of all time – until my son came along, of course!

xmas16-3

Now it’s all about him, and watching him grow and learn to enjoy the holiday – from Santa, to presents, to traditions, to the true meaning of the holiday – I have the honor of getting to teach him all about all of it!

xmas16

From my little family to you and yours – Merry Christmas – may your day be merry, bright, and full of love and laughter!

TGIF! And here’s hoping Santa is good to you all! Now if you will excuse me – there are some Christmas Cookies calling my name…

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:

063-dsc_0241

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!
