In my opinion the music of Disney, whether it be from the movies or their shows or the parks, is one of the greatest parts of Disney’s magic.  So when I was offered an advance copy of the new We Love Disney album I jumped at the chance to give it a listen.

The new We Love Disney album 2015 has some of your favorite Disney songs performed by today's hottest artists across all genres!

It’s such a fun album!  It’s got some of your favorite classic Disney songs – like “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” and “It’s A Small World” – as well as some newer hits, and even songs you might not be that familiar with.  And they’re all sung by some of today’s hottest artists across all genres.

This shop and my Descendants DIY jars has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions and love for villains are mine alone. #Disney #VillainDescendants #CollectiveBias

I’ve always had a little bit of a soft side when it comes to Disney Villains.  Is it a matter of choice, or are they a product of their circumstances?  I mean, it’s hard to hear the backstory of Maleficent and not feel at least a smidge of sympathy for her.

Disney Descendants DIY Painted Jar with Mal's icon. Great to store your Descendants doll accessories in!

When I started to see commercials for Disney’s Descendants I knew I wanted to watch the premiere on The Disney Channel.  Fortunately my little Disney “mini me” Bubbles was happy to oblige and we sat down to watch it together.  I wasn’t disappointed – it was great! Continue reading »

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. My DIY baby shower gifts, photos and opinions are mine alone. #MagicBabyMoments #CollectiveBias

My sister-in-law’s baby shower is coming up in a little over a month and I’m getting excited.  I unfortunately won’t be able to make it back to Maine to attend so that means I need to get my DIY baby shower gifts, shopping, and decor ideas done now so I have time to mail them.

I love shopping for baby boy stuff which is a good thing considering that all the baby cousins have been boys.  And with Sam and Abby having just found out they are having a boy, too, I’ve had a better idea of all the goodies I want to pick up to send for the shower and birth.

We have a new tablet that Bubbles is very excited about.  We spend a little time snuggling at night and she gets to use it with me, to play a few educational games, maybe watch a couple of videos.  And once I showed her that we could use it to read some of her favorite books, she was thrilled.

Learning to read with Disney Story Central digital books

For over a year now we’ve been accessing great Disney books through Disney Story Central’s app on my iPhone.  It’s been great to have for on-the-go entertainment, but being able to let her read and listen on a bigger, brighter screen has been a treat for her.  And watching her learn to read more words is a treat for me.

Bubbles celebrated her 4th birthday back in February.  I had big plans of sharing the entire thing with you at that time, but we were all sick both prior to and following her birthday, so sharing the details kind of slid to the back burner.

One Bowl Elsa Doll Cake Tutorial for a Frozen Birthday Party

As she’s getting older now and definitely has her own opinion on things, I let her choose her own party theme this year.  We looked at some different options online and in the stores, and in the end she (unsurprisingly) chose a Frozen theme.  And once we had decided on Frozen, I knew I wanted to try my hand at an Elsa cake.
