T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy 3rd Birthday To My Baby Boy

This weekend we are celebrating my son’s 3rd birthday – and I am just astounded at how quickly three years went by

…To a funny, silly, happy, talkative 3 year old (who loves all things DISNEY, of course!)

So many amazing memories made over the past 3 years, and next year we will head to Disney World for this little guy’s first trip – and I can’t wait to make even more amazing memories with him. Watching him experience things for the first time has been so much fun – and Walt Disney World is no exception – I can’t wait to see what he likes, what makes him laugh, smile, scares him, what he wants to ride again and again – it’s so cool watching kids grow up – and I may be biased, but I think I got myself a pretty great one here.

Happy 3rd Birthday John!

Now if anyone needs me I will be crying in the corner – part sad as my baby is growing so fast, part happy as he is turning into such an amazing little man

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fall Is OFFICIALLY Here!

A few weeks ago I wrote about how pumped I was for the Fall Season to begin at Walt Disney World – and while that might have been a bit premature with it barely being September and all – now I can say with certainty that fall is TRULY upon us (it officially started yesterday!) so that means all things FALL are HERE (whether you like it or not, ha!)

WDW’s Magic Kingdom is all dressed up for fall – and even if you aren’t a fall fan, you can surely appreciate the awesomeness of this photo – creepy, spooky, and full of fall flair! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is in full swing, and let’s just say that fall is a great time to head to Walt Disney World – the food, décor, merchandise and overall spirit of autumn are all in the air!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Slinky Dog Dash” Takes Shape At Hollywood Studios!

Ever since the news about the opening of Toy Story Land broke earlier this summer, us Disney fans have been hungry for more details – and finally we have some!

Slinkydog

One of the coming attractions that will surely be VERY popular once Toy Story land opens is “Slinky Dog Dash” – a roller coaster built by Andy in his backyard – combining track pieces with other toys, too (he has QUITE the imagination – as those of us who are fans of the movies know to be true!). The track for the ride was recently completed, and just last week the rider vehicle was delivered to the coaster site!

It’s so cool looking – looks JUST like the slinky dog in the movies! Check out more info (including a video!) here

Toy Story Land is set to open to the public next summer, and I personally can’t wait to see what else Disney’s Imagineers have in store for us Park Guests!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “So Basic I Can’t Even”

Perhaps you have heard of the term “Basic White Girl” – and if you haven’t, I can school you on it – it’s your typical fall-loving, pumpkin spice latter drinking, apple picking, scarf wearing gal who just adores everything about fall and all that goes with it. Maybe the term might offend some, but I personally find it to be funny, and truth be told I am about as Basic as they come. I LIVE for fall, and the unveiling of all things fall at Disney is something I look forward to every year. And now that it is September, I feel like I can OFFICIALLY be excited about fall – and all the great ways Disney brings it to life:

There’s the fall décor that springs up everywhere you turn at the Parks

And then there’s the seasonally themed treats for sale at all the Disney Parks, too!

 And for those of us not lucky enough to be headed to Walt Disney World this fall, we can take solace in the fact that the Disney Store has a nice big Halloween Section – full of amazing costumes and décor and other fun stuff you can use at home to make this the BEST FALL EVER!!

Ok – sorry – got a little excited there – can’t help it – it’s the basic girl in me!

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

This week I celebrated my 33rd birthday – and I think most adults would agree with me that as you get older, birthdays aren’t as much about gifts or how many people say “Happy Birthday” or show up to celebrate you (although all those things are nice!) – it’s really about memories, and just getting a chance to enjoy life with the ones you love!

I didn’t have a “Birthday Party” this year (as 33 isn’t exactly a milestone year, ha) but we did have some people over for a bit of pool fun this weekend, and even though I know I just said birthdays aren’t as much about gifts, I did get a few that really thrilled me:

Meet “Swanda”

My husband and I were lucky enough to move into a bigger house this spring – and even LUCKIER that the house came with a POOL! We have all LOVED spending time splashing around, and truth be told – I have been dreaming about one of these since we moved in (because what pool is complete without an INSANELY HUGE inflatable swan?) Oh – and even though my husband said “it will take up half the pool” – FYI – it only takes up like a quarter. So there.

33bday3

I also received this – 846 pages of ALL THINGS WALT DISNEY WORLD. I seriously cannot wait to read this cover to cover in preparation for our Disney World trip next year!

33Bday1

Seriously though – aside from the gifts, I know that Birthdays these days are all about being grateful for everything I have in my life – and I gotta say, I feel pretty blessed right now – as I am turning 33, I look forward to the year ahead and spending time with my family – and watching this little superhero get even bigger and grow and learn even more! Oh – and obviously I can’t wait to spend even more quality time with Spider Dog too – even if he does currently hate me for making him pose in that cape
