T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 4 Years Of Fun

This week my son turned 4 years old – and I can’t believe how big and smart he is getting!

He went to build a Bear for the first time this week to celebrate his birthday – and I just marvel at how grown up he is getting. He is funny, caring, outgoing, and a great friend to everyone he meets.

This weekend he is having his birthday party – it’s Halloween themed and he will be dressing as Batman for the occasion. I am so excited to have everyone we love come together to celebrate the past 4 years with him

I know this post isn’t Disney related – but I have been pretty busy planning his birthday party this past week, and he deserves to have a post dedicated to him and his awesomeness!

I can’t wait to party with him this weekend!!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Christopher Robin” Will Bring You Back

r_christopherrobin_header_ddt-16713_7c69a010

Last week Disney’s “Christopher Robin” arrived in theaters, delighting those of all ages – and bringing a new generation of fans to the movies to see a delightfully forgetful Hunny-loving bear and his pals go through misadventures in the Hundred Acre Wood:

The gang’s all here – Winnie the Pooh, Rabbit, Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo – all the characters I adored as a child have come back to help remind us of our childhoods

Disney said this about the film: “In the heatwarming live action adventure “Disney’s Christopher Robin,” the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and loveable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.”

…Sometimes I think we ALL need that reminder, a friend to help us find our way back to our true path. Well done, Pooh. Well done.

Pooh and friends were always a favorite of mine as a kid – so I can’t wait to head to the theater to check this out – What about you? Have you seen it yet?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – It’s Hot Hot Hot – Keep Cool With These Disney Summer Items!

I recently wrote about all the amazing New DISNEY Stuff at TARGET – and I have to say, I am REALLY loving the POOL stuff right now. Could be because the temperature and humidity have been INSANE here lately, so much so that we basically LIVED in the pool last weekend just to escape the oppressive heat!

And what better way to enjoy the pool and outdoors than with amazing Disney stuff?

Dry off in style with an awesome Disney beach towel

Loving these Disney pool inflatables – especially these drink holders!DisPool 1

It’s important to hydrate when you’re spending time outside in this heat – this Disney drink dispenser would be perfect for lemonade, ice water, juice for the kids, or even sangria (juice for the adults!)

 

You better head to your local Target ASAP to grab these amazing summer items – as they are already starting to clear them out for back to school time (eek!). I would be there right now buying them all for myself if my husband wouldn’t kill me – as we already have two GIANT pool floats and TONS of assorted other pool items….so as much as I would LOVE that Minnie Mouse float – must…restrain…myself (for now anyway…)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – In My Happy Place With My People

This week’s post is not really about Disney – but it IS about what I find to be one of the Happiest Places On Earth – curled up on my couch with not only my boys, but my best friend and her family, too! They are here to visit this weekend, and I am SO GLAD to see them – they live about 7 hours away in Virginia, and we while we visit each other often and FaceTime and text a lot, it’s still hard to be away from her and her family so much! Luckily, we have this time together now:

This is the first time they are here in the summer since we moved to our new house – so getting to see the kids enjoy the pool and backyard has been a real treat for me – this is what it’s all about – family and friends. It’s what makes the tantrums and juggling and working so hard worth it

Lovin’ life right now – TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Oh TWO-dles!

Last week one of my favorite little ones turned 2 – Miss Ella is one of my close friends daughters – and we were so thrilled to celebrate her birthday with her.

…And even MORE thrilled when we found out that the theme was MINNIE MOUSE!

My son had a great time playing with Ella and especially enjoyed the (Mickey) balloons

Trying to get 4 toddlers to pose…futile, but the outtakes are adorable

FINALLY – a place to wear these shirts besides Disney World!

A great party – and we even got party hats to take home!

Side Note – I may or may not be posting this in hopes my husband will plan a similar Minnie Mouse party for me this year? They make Ella’s outfit in my size, I bet…? Maybe?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Ok Target Just Take ALL MY MONEY

I always knew this day would come. I KNEW Disney would find a way to bankrupt me. I just always assumed it would be via their Parks and insanely priced souvenirs – I NEVER thought it could hit this close to home. So close in fact – that it is at every single Target store in the country – and I am powerless to stop the magnetic pull it has on me!

Target8

Target7

Disney recently released a TON of new merchandise, being sold exclusively at Target stores around the country. And we aren’t talking just a few little knick knacks and kids clothes or something like that – no – we are talking FULL ON Disney taking over Target. Kid’s and babies clothes/shoes, adult clothes, home goods, bedding, makeup, and then there’s the SUMMER stuff – pool accessories, camping stuff, and the list goes on AND ON – seriously.

Target4

So obviously – I had to check it out for myself. And I brought my tiny Disney fan too. He scored some Mickey Lip Balms to share with me

Target5

I had to seriously limit myself to only the necessities. I need to moisturize my lips, and I need something to drink coffee out of, and Walter NEEDS a Mickey hoodie (ok – maybe that last one is a bit of a stretch – but stores NEVER have the XL dog clothes/costumes – so I jumped on it!)

Target6

….He was less than impressed but a good sport nonetheless (treats were involved so that helped!)

target2.jpgTarget1target-3.jpg

And then I couldn’t resist matching tumblers for the family – another necessity really – as we all need to drink water, right?

There. Is. So. Much. Check it out online – and if you’re at Target just look up for the giant “Love Mickey” signs hanging from the ceiling – they will point you towards the good stuff!

…Seriously though I am going to need a second job just to fund my love for all things Disney at Target. Hmm…maybe Target is hiring?

TGIF!
