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

It’s a bit hard to believe that a year has already passed, and that this tiny little guy…

…Has turned into this big man!

He turned 1 yesterday, and we are celebrating his first birthday tomorrow – I can’t wait to see everyone come together for this milestone! There will be pizza, cake, and presents – but most of all, there will be CELEBRATING! We survived! My husband and I managed to successfully keep the baby alive, not kill each other, and have a TON of fun along the way…

From tons of playtime (including peek a boo!)

2.13 cooking

to helping Mommy cook…

To getting to meet the Easter Bunny,

Outside

And enjoying plenty of outdoor playtime!

 

I realize that this post isn’t really Disney related – but I love my kid more than I love Disney (it’s true!) – so I figured why not dedicate a post to how excited I am about his turning 1?

Oh – and if have a baby in your life who’s turning 1 soon, then you should check out my list of gift ideas!

TGIF – and Happy FIRST BIRTHDAY JOHN! Here’s to millions more memories and fun times!

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

Tomorrow I will be 31 years old (eek!) – and while I don’t exactly love getting older, I do enjoy all the perks that come with it – being an adult, living on my own, making my own decisions, starting my own family, being a homeowner – these are all pretty awesome! At this point, birthdays aren’t really about having a party or getting presents, but more about celebrating all that I am grateful for in my life – like my family (including my baby boy!), friends, health, job…the list goes on, and I feel lucky every day to be living this life!

   31 4

Speaking of luck – I was lucky enough as a kid to get to travel to Walt Disney World every year with my parents – the memories of these trips are ones I will always cherish, and I credit my parents as being the ones who kick-started my Disney obsession. I have traveled back several times as an adult, and enjoyed it even more than when I was a kid – which actually ended up being the inspiration behind starting this blog – showing how much fun Disney can be for everyone (not just kids!)

31 3

For me, birthdays are a great time to reflect on not only the past year, but on yourself as a person – and for me, Disney is a huge part of who I am, and I can’t wait to introduce my son to all the magic in a few years! Until then, I will be dreaming of (and writing about!) the Happiest Place On Earth!

And even though I know I said that birthdays aren’t really about presents anymore, I must admit – there are a few Disney-themed things on my VERY short birthday wish list this year…

31 2

Shutterfly is one of my favorite websites – I love the easy to create photo gifts and prints are super easy to order (you can even do it from your smartphone!), and they just recently released a new line of ready to personalize Disney items – pillows, notebooks, wall decals, placemats – they’re all cute and would make great gifts, but I have to say that the Disney photo book is really the one that stands out for me – I love the pages and the little embellishments you can add – and I am REALLY hoping my husband got me one

31 1

The Disney Alex and Ani bracelets are really popular right now, and they have a ton of cute styles (I have a few, and would love to add a few more to my collection!). Everyone needs a good mug to drink their morning coffee out of – and I am a HUGE alice in wonderland fan – in fact I have “We’re All Mad Here” tattooed on my shoulder (talk about a diehard Disney fan!), and as for the purse – well – that’s a bit of a dream – but everyone needs a Disney wish list, right? Just in case they come in to some money, or some really rich relative wants to buy you something…

While I would love to get these amazing Disney gifts for my birthday, I know that regardless of if I get Disney gifts or no gifts – as long as I have my family and friends, I know it will be great birthday, and I look forward to the year ahead of me too!

TGIF!

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

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!

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:

image

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…)
