Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue opens in just a couple of weeks (July 18th)! Bubbles is counting the days as much as I am; every time she sees a trailer or commercial on TV she jumps up and down and shouts “That’s the movie we’re going to see at the theater! The new Planes movie!”. So, clearly – we’re excited.

You may have heard that there’s this little movie playing in theaters.  The one that dominated the box office last weekend.  The one with Angelina Jolie.

Angelina Jolie is Maleficent #Maleficent

The movie is Maleficent and I have heard nothing but amazing things about the film.  We have Austin & Ashley’s graduation party tomorrow, and Austin’s graduation itself on Sunday, but next week?  Next week will be a Maleficent movie date for hubby and I. Continue reading »

Happy Easter!  So thankful that today actually feels like Easter – warm and sunny!  And we’ve been able to enjoy the day with family and friends.  Really a perfect day.

Bubbles had a wonderful morning of chasing down eggs and opening treats.  Then we had lunch, where one of Ashley’s friends from college declared my White Cheddar Mac & Cheese (no chicken or broccoli today) the best food on Earth.  Yeah, that will make you smile.

Frozen "Easter Egg" - Rapunzel & Flynn Visit Arendelle

Now something to make all of you smile!  You may or may not be aware that Pixar is kind of famous for “Easter Eggs” in their movies – a character or item from one will end in another in a really small way.  Disney does it, too, like when Rapunzel and Flynn show up in Frozen (see above!).

My love for Disney is certainly no surprise to those of you whom have been reading this blog for any length of time. I’ve loved all things Disney since I was just little, and laying eyes on Cinderella Castle for the first time simply cemented the connection for me.  The magic of Disney, the attention to detail, none of it was lost on me.

When Disney first released their collection of Vinylmations, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of them.  The small collectibles – their names derive from a combination of the words animation and vinyl – come in a variety of sizes.  They’re all shaped like Mickey Mouse but have different colors and markings to represent everything related to Disney.

Blank and Bow in Disney's "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story" #BlankandBow

I don’t yet have much of a collection, but I do have a few special ones.  One of the Bakery series, one with the year on it, a few of the characters I really love.  I’m also looking forward to adding one that Bubbles gets to choose when we take our first Disney World trip. Continue reading »

It’s no secret that we love the Disney Frozen movie.  I shared my Disney Frozen review with you after we took Bubbles to see it in theaters back in November.  And recently we even had a Mother/Daughter Disney Frozen day of fun.

Disney Frozen's Elsa Sings "Let It Go"

One of the things I loved most about the movie was the music.  The “Let It Go” song is not only one of my favorite songs from Frozen, but is one of my favorite Disney movie songs, period.  Bubbles has been singing this song literally since we returned to our car after the movie. Continue reading »
