This DIY MistleToes gift post is brought to you by DataRank and Burt’s Bees. All words, projects, and opinions are my own.

I’m getting a little bit giddy.  Christmas, which is my absolute favorite time of year, is getting closer by the day.  In fact, there are only a little over 73 days until the big day arrives.

Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet?  Us either!  I’m a little embarrassed (jealous?) that even my parents have seen it.  We’re just waiting for a good time for Bubbles to visit Papaw and Grammy so that hubby, Austin and I can go and see it.

I have heard amazing things about it, though.  My Facebook feed has been full of great reviews and positive comments, and a number of people have even mentioned going two or three times already to see it.  The buzz couldn’t be better!

I created this free boating printable subway art in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

As a Discover Boating Ambassador for the summer, last month I shared with you all some tips for renting and how to choose a boat for your outing or vacation.  I hope they were of some help to anyone looking to get out on the water this summer!

Sunset on the Lake

We haven’t yet had the chance to go out ourselves; the summer simply has been more busy that we had expected.  Between graduations and work and helping Ashley shop for and get settled into her new apartment and job, there hasn’t been a lot of extra time. Continue reading »

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue flew into theaters yesterday.  We had been promising Bubbles for weeks that we would go to see it the day it opened.  There was a 2:30 p.m. non-3D matinee, and so we packed up some snacks and headed to the theater.

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Review: Dusty, Blade Ranger, Dipper, and Windlifter

The very moment the movie started, Bubbles exclaimed “That’s the song from the first Planes movie!”.  She was right; the instrumental intro was music shared from Disney Planes.  I liked how they tied them together right from the start. Continue reading »

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.
