Guardians of the Galaxy Floats

Star Lord is great.  He’s funny; he’s got great dance moves.  But Groot, especially Baby Groot when he’s dancing.  I just can’t accurately predict how many times I’m going to see Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 just so I can watch Baby Groot.  It’s going to be a lot.


In honor of Groot, my family and I celebrated the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 with Guardians of the Galaxy floats.  We call them Groot Beer Floats as they are blended root beer floats with lots of fun extras.  Check out the super simple recipe that’s out of this galaxy!

A Mother’s Thoughts on Born In China

My grandmother Flossie (yup, that was her real name) lived in Small Town, USA. Our visits out to her house put our imaginations to the test as there wasn’t a ton to do. We drew faces on clothespins, played Yahtzee, and toured the yarn store.


With limited entertainment offerings, my sister and I were thrilled when our dad offered to take us to the movies. We saw a documentary on bears, and I was officially hooked on nature documentaries.  Disneynature keeps my fascination alive with their gorgeous glimpses into the world of animals. The upcoming cinematic release, Born in China, takes viewers into the wilds of China in the latest true life adventure film.

10 Cutest Disney Babies

Babies with their big ol’ eyes and rolly, polly selves. It’s kind of impossible for me to pass by a baby and not ohh and ahh.  Don’t worry, Mom.  We’re not having any more. 


As cute as my babies were, it’s the babies of Disney films I’m obsessing over today.  It seems more and more common in Disney films to include a backstory and a pint-sized look at the main character.  These glimpses at the Disney characters I adore as infants add extra adorableness to the animated features.


6 Best Character Changes In Beauty and the Beast

I so desperately wanted to love it.  Everything I had seen leading up to Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast was so charming, so perfect.  I went in to the movie with such high expectations and an anxious heart.  I loved it more than I thought I could.


I’m sharing all the best changes, focusing on character development, to the original animated film.  There are some moderate spoilers, just so you know.


Beauty and the Beast Activity Sheets

Don’t you see? She’s the one. The girl we have been waiting for. She has come to break the spell.


You guys. Today’s the day!  Beauty and the Beast is now playing in theaters and my heart can barely handle it.  Never before has my geek heart had both Disney and Harry Potter fluttering inside it.  To celebrate, I’m sharing super fun Beauty and the Beast activity pages for you the kids.


DIY Trolls Pinata

Recently, we threw my 3-year-old a Troll-tastic birthday party, full of lots of DIY fun.  One of my favorite birthday party projects is making custom piñatas. They’re easy to put together using recycled materials.  Plus, using leftover packing supplies means they’re inexpensive too!

Beauty and the Beast Exclusive Sneak Peek at Disneyland + Coloring Pages

True as it can be, it’s almost March 17th. I am so darn excited about seeing Beauty and the Beast I can’t even handle it. Belle was my favorite favorite favorite princess growing up (Snow White is my favorite favorite, but not favorite favorite favorite).  Her dreams of the great wide somewhere; her nose stuck in a book; her hatred for the boorish, the brainless Gaston.  She pretty much rules.



Add in Emma Watson playing the lead role, and I can’t even. That’s why I’m so delighted to share some special Beauty and the Beast themed fun with you.


Moana Elf on the Shelf Idea

Some elves are naughty, wrapping toilets in wrapping paper or making messes. But our Elf on the Shelf “Joey” is a gift giver.  A few times a week, he makes our season merrier by bringing small surprises for my daughters.  He’s brought Advent calendars filled with chocolate. Another day he arrived with stickers.  




These small trinkets bring holiday fun to our home.  For my Disney-obsessed girls, we were so thrilled with the Moana theme he chose for himself recently.
