I Am Heading To Pixar To Check Out Incredibles 2 + Interview Filmmakers! | #Incredibles2Event #Incredibles2

As you likely know by now, I have a thing for superheroes. They are kind of a major part of my life. So of course, The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies. I saw it theaters when it came out and when my husband and I honeymooned at Walt Disney World, we were so excited to meet Mr. and Mrs. Incredible. We had not met before this movie came out, but it was a favorite of each of ours before we even met. So when Incredibles 2 was announced a while back, we both starting counting the days until it’s release! Then something really exciting happened – Disney & Pixar invited me to check out Pixar in person, as well as some footage of Incredibles 2! The event takes place April 3rd to the 5th, so be sure to follow along with #Incredibles2Event.

Disney’s Christopher Robin Teaser Trailer Brings Back Childhood Memories | #Disney #ChristopherRobin

You might now know this about me but Winnie the Pooh was one of my favorite things when I was growing up. I had a giant stuffed Eeyore, Pooh Bear, and Piglet – that OK, maybe I still own. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, we did not know gender, so had to go with a gender-neutral nursery. We went with a Winnie the Pooh theme and my husband free-handed some amazing murals on the wall. So when I heard that Disney was going to make a new film, Christopher Robin, I was ecstatic. I knew right away that it was something the whole family was going to see in theaters. Today, the teaser trailer came out, and it is everything.

How To (Mostly) Stay on the Keto Diet at Walt Disney World | #Keto #Disney

As you likely know by now, I have changed my way of eating to a Keto lifestyle. It has been about two months know and I feel better than ever. I knew going in to this that I would be spending nearly two weeks (12 days) at the most magical place on Earth, Walt Disney World. Being Disney Vacation Club members allowed us to be able to escape this snowy, frigid, and downright depressing winter, and enjoy some fun in the sun. It is no secret that Disney is our favorite vacation spot – I mean, it is why we joined the DVC. But there are temptations everywhere for someone trying to cut out carbs – here is how I survived my extended Disney vacation on Keto!

The Thor: Ragnarok Bonus Features Will Have You Cracking Up All Over Again! | #ThorRagnarok #Marvel

If you have been a follower of mine for a while, then you likely know I went to LA for the Thor: Ragnarok red carpet premiere. I was lucky enough to interview some of the cast and it was something I will never forget. Totally one of my favorite press events to date. If you didn’t see my spoiler free review of the film, you can read it here. Well, Thor: Ragnarok has finally come home. There are many reasons to pick it up (honestly one of the best Marvel films to date, in my opinion), but the bonus features are the main reason! The deleted and extended scenes, as well as the gag reel, had me laughing so hard I had tears.

If You Love Good Food & Winnie The Pooh – The Crystal Palace Breakfast at Walt Disney World is A Must! | #Disney

If you haven’t figured out that we are a Disney family by now, there is probably no hope for you. Ha, just kidding. But honestly, we are Disney Vacation Club members and love going “home” two or three times a year. We have several must dos when we go, which includes rides, character meet and greets, and of course, restaurants. One that the entire family looks forward to every visit is breakfast at The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom.

How to Enjoy Your Disney Cruise as a Couple (While Your Kids are with You!) | #DisneyCruise

If you are a Disney family, I highly recommend taking a Disney Cruise at some point. My family has been on two, so far, and are dying to go on another! Thanks to the Oceaneer Club and Lab, this can feel like a couples getaway as well as a family vacation. There is plenty for Disney fans of all ages to do on board and in port, including things for parents to do while the kids play at the Club. My girls barely wanted to leave – in fact, they fought with us a couple times when we said it was time for dinner.
