So easy & delicious! My kids LOVE these! Can't wait to make these for dinner!
Yes, the excessive heat warnings are still here in the Midwest and it doesn’t look like they are going anywhere soon. Bleh. Luckily, we are still in full party mode with our Elena of Avalor party from Friday! Putting up all the decorations and, of course, the main event of FINALLY getting to watch Elena of Avalor on Disney Channel are wonderful, but little tummies need something to nibble on. 🙂 (more…)

Eleeena, Elena of Avalor! Am I the only parent who has had the theme song from Disney’s newest princess stuck in my head? No? Oh, good! My little Minnie has been OBSESSED with Elena of Avalor for about the past week and what better way to welcome the new princess than with a little party?

Until a time comes where I can for the most part trust my little ones to not spill something or need some accessory, I am stuck with  so lucky to get to carry one. 🙂 (more…)

Lists, lists, lists. I love lists! Everything is so orderly and I (probably) won’t forget anything.  When it is time to start planning and packing for a Disney adventure, lists are the only thing that keep me from losing my mind.  (more…)

Our favorite resting spot at Disney World! So beautiful and so quiet!  Love to pretend we are Rapunzel at the Lantern festival
Hi there! Welcome back! The next post for the Magic In The Details Series is all about the BEST bathroom in all of the Magic Kingdom at Disney World: Rapunzel’s Bathroom. It’s ok, this isn’t going to turn into some oversharing critique of which toilet to use or anything like that. Promise! (more…)

After welcoming spring and rampaging thru the house with spring cleaning, I always find I have one too many boxes of stuff that is of no use to us. Sorry, to my kids’ grandparents, but those stuffed animals and those “must have” parenting items just aren’t making the cut anymore. Sayanora!  (more…)
