I’ve been excited to see Jurassic World since I first heard it was being made.  I still remember watching the first Jurassic Park movie when it came out and being entirely in awe when those first dinosaurs came into view as they rolled up in the little Jeeps.

Of course after my Chris Pratt interview awhile back, I was looking forward to seeing him in another role.  I had really wanted to see it in theaters but I was afraid that even though she wanted to see it, it may be too overwhelming and scary for Bubbles.  And with Ashley in Indy teaching and Austin away doing his Army training, our babysitting options are a bit limited at the moment.

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.

Trying out new restaurants was one of my husband and I’s favorite things to do when we were living in Florida.  There were so many so close to us that we tried to get to one new place every other week or so.

Mellow Mushroom has fun decor unique to each location, like this fun Churchill Downs-inspired decor at the Middletown, KY location.

There are a lot of great ones to try here in Louisville, too; Louisville is quickly becoming known as a real foodie town.  But between having a baby and moving to the edges of the city we haven’t had a chance to try as many new ones as we’d like. Continue reading »

Earlier this week we were invited to attend a screening of the new live-action Disney’s Cinderella movie.  After weeks of being snowed in, iced in, sick, and snowed in some more (nearly 18″ the first weekend of March. seriously) it was an evening out that both Bubbles and I were looking forward to.  We made it a complete mother-daughter night with dinner out before the movie.

Bubbles was especially excited about the short film Frozen Fever that was showing before Cinderella.  She has been smitten with Elsa, Anna and crew since the moment she first saw them on the screen in Frozen and this was no exception.  She never took her eyes off the screen for the entire thing and only spoke once to tell me, “I love Elsa’s new dress”.

Our plans for Valentine’s Day are starting to take shape.  We’ve decided to go out to lunch for a family “date” in the afternoon, and then that night we may do the indoor picnic about which she’s been asking.  Then probably finish up with one of the family-friendly movies for Valentine’s Day that I shared a bit ago.

Kick off Valentine's Day with your kiddos by watching the new Doc McStuffins Cuddle Me Lambie DVD. Includes free Lambie hair clips, too!

In the morning, of course, we’ll have breakfast.  Maybe some heart-shaped toast with peanut butter to go with her yogurt (her breakfast repertoire isn’t very deep).  After that we like to spend a little time snuggling and watching one of her shows together. Continue reading »
