T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Have Your (Disney) Cake And Eat It Too!

Now that I’m a mom, my inspiration for most things usually starts from something related to my son – in this case, I happened to see some birthday parties for little ones on Facebook, and not only were they all super amazing and perfectly themed, but they all had adorable cakes and cupcakes too – and it got me to thinking about ideas for my baby’s first birthday (which is many months away, but hey planning ahead is good right?) – and as far as I’m concerned, the CAKE is one of the most important parts of any party! Check out these awesome Disney themed cakes:

  Cake UP

The movie UP is such a great love story – and a cake like this would be a perfect wedding cake, don’t you think? What a way to start out your greatest adventure yet!

Cake Smash

A baby’s first birthday party wouldn’t be complete without a smash cake would it? Something simple and not too intricate like this one would be perfect (after all, it’s just going to wind up all over their hands – and face, hair, feet, probably the floor and walls and…well, you get the idea)

Cake Princess

I love this Princess cake – subtly celebrating some of Disney’s most beloved characters and movies! I also enjoy that it’s not over the top frilly or glittery or extra girly – its classy and fit for royalty!

Cake Shower

And of course – I HAVE to mention the cupcakes my mother in law made for my own amazing baby shower (yeah, those are brownie Mickeys in them – aren’t they amazing?!)

Ok – so let’s be real here – not everyone is as crafty as my mother in law (like me, for example…), but luckily, most grocery store bakeries have the ability to add some Disney magic to their sheet cakes – with designs like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Pooh and Friends, and yes – even Frozen – this means everyone can enjoy some Disney cake on their Birthday!

Ok – now I really want cake. That’s acceptable for breakfast right?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Cinderella-Inspired Attire For You And Your Little Princess

 Cinderella animated

Cinderella is hands down my favorite Disney movie ever – I watched it so many times as a kid I think I wore out the tape (remember those? VCR’s, VHS tapes, rewinding…), and now even though I have upgraded to the DVD version, my love for the characters and story haven’t faded with age.

CInderella 2015

The newly released live action Cinderella movie has been pretty popular at the box office – and of course with the release of any new Disney movie comes new merchandise. Check out some of the items from the new Cinderella clothing line:

Cinderella1

Wouldn’t your little princess look perfectly adorable in this ball-inspired dress?

Cinderella2

True statement.

Cinderella3

I love the whimsy of this one – perfect for a Spring wedding

Cinderella4

No Cinderella collection would be complete without glittery glass slippers

The clothing is available exclusively at Kohl’s – check out the whole line here

How about you – are you planning on checking out the new Cinderella movie? I personally can’t wait to see Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother

T. G. I. F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Easter Ideas

It seems that there’s always some holiday I’m planning for or thinking – and now that I have a son, I want to do even more to make holiday celebrations special for him! I was thinking to myself the other day “what do you get an infant for Easter?” and obviously the easy answer is “nothing – he won’t remember it anyway” – but of course I want to get him SOMETHING, and while I’m at it, why not Disney-fy it?

Check out these awesome Disney Easter-themed gifts:

When I was at Disney World for Easter a few years ago, they had these super cute “easter eggs” that opened up into stuffed Easter Mickey and Minnies – aren’t they adorable?

image

A fun craft would be to make your own Disney Easter Basket to put all your dyed eggs in!

image

Stores like Walmart, Target, and Drugstores have these awesome pre-made Easter baskets filled with candy and toys and they come in a big variety of characters to choose from

image

Amazing personalized baskets brimming with Disney goodies can be purchased (and delivered to your house!) from Disney Floral & Gifts

If you need some ideas on what to stuff your Easter baskets with, check out these Egg-stra Magical Disney Easter Gift Ideas

As for me – I’m still trying to figure out what to get my little guy for Easter. I’m thinking something he can put in his mouth as that is his current fave (poor kermit…)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Warm Up With A Smile With These Disney Mugs!

WILL THIS COLD NEVER END!!! I would give anything to be at Disney World right now – not only because it’s the happiest place on earth, but because it’s a heck of a lot warmer than Upstate New York this time of year! Alas, I am stuck here, so to cheer myself up, I think I will grab a warm beverage (coffee if it’s the morning time, or cocoa in the evening perhaps?) in a DISNEY MUG:

 Mugs Pixar

Could these Pixar mugs be any cuter? I especially love Nemo

Mugs DIsney Store 1

Find these and other drinkware at the Disney Store’s website

Mugs PrincessMug

I kick myself for not buying this – look at how big it is, I could really use that to wrap my hands around right about now!

COASTER finished

I did buy this one though – I love the vintage collage-y feel to it! Oh – and if you want to make your own Disney coasters like the ones pictured, then check out the DIY here

You can buy Disney branded coffee and tea at the Disney Parks – I always pick some up (and then am always wishing I had gotten more when I run out!), and they really are the perfect treat to enjoy in your favorite Disney mug. Just keep on sipping and hoping for spring…

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week Post – Check out these “Charm”ing New Disney Pandora Charms!

Who doesn’t love a little Disney bling? I know I do – I have a few Disney Alex and Ani bracelets, and another super popular Disney collection is their new Pandora Disney Charms which debuted late last year. There are tons of great styles, check out some of my faves:

 Pandora3 Pandora1 Pandora2

Personally I love the sparkly ones – I just know they would look great added to my bracelet!

Pandora4

They have some amazing styles available, and the great thing is – you can get them at any Pandora retailer! Pandora is a really fun concept and they really do have a charm for every occasion. The only drawback is they can be a bit expensive – but I think that makes them all the more special! What about you – do you collect Pandora or another type of charm or Disney jewelry?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – HAPPY BIRTHDAY To The World’s BEST Husband!

Today is a very special day for my family – it’s my husband’s 28th birthday! WOO HOO! I am so excited to get to celebrate another birthday with him, it’s always fun to spoil him and treat him like a king – after all, he is the best husband/father/friend/person ever!

Seriously though, he is an amazing person inside and out – he’s kind and caring, funny, smart, and he is the most amazing dad to our beautiful 3 month old son and our 2 year old dog!

Another reason why he is so great is that he not only puts up with my Disney addiction – but he actually likes Disney too! We have gone several times together, and had so much fun!

I love getting to travel to my absolute favorite place and making memories with my absolute favorite guy! He’s the perfect travel companion – always up for anything and willing to walk around the Parks all day with me – going on rides and shopping and eating (one of his fave things to do at Disney) and seeing shows – we do it all, and I am so glad I have him to do it with

A Big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him, and to everyone else – Happy Friday (and TGIF!)
