Must Grab Toys for Mickey’s 90th Anniversary Celebration!

If you know anything about me you know I am a bit of a Disney fan. So when I heard about some amazing toys coming from Just Play Toys to celebrate Mickey’s 90th Anniversary, you know I was excited! They sent me some that now have a home in the office. My daughters tried to steal the adorable Steamboat Willie plush, but they haven’t succeeded yet. OK, every now and then I let them sleep with him in their bed, but he lives in my office. These are total must haves for any Mickey fan!

5 Must Do Activities While Visiting Orlando, Florida and How to Book Them

If you know anything about me, you likely know that I am a Disney Vacation Club member. Because of this, my family travels to Orlando, Florida quite often. Most of our time is spent at Walt Disney World of course, however, there are many other things to do in Orlando. The best part? It can all be booked using TripAdvisor (besides Disney). Grab all your tickets in one place instead of visiting website after website. Then come back and review your experience so that other travelers can know what to expect!

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.

Couples Disney Cruise

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.

3 Lessons Every Kid Can Learn From Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors

I am a giant Marvel fan and I am totally raising my kids to be Marvel fans too. Recently I got a screener for Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors and just could not wait to share with with my girls. I have been reading the new Marvel Rising comic books which feature Squirrel Girl and Ms. Marvel, so I was really excited to see them in this movie. Plus, who doesn’t love America Chavez and Patriot?! Quake, actually voiced by Chloe Bennet, had me pretty darn excited too because I LOVE her in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Playing Forward’s Stan Lee’s Kids Universe Is A Blast For Kids!

My girls and I love to game. OK, my husband does too. We are constantly checking out new games on all consoles – even mobile games. In fact, we love mobile games because we play them at restaurants or hotels when trying to pass the time. Each of my daughters have their own tablet and they get one hour of free play. Lately both of them have been choosing to play Stan Lee’s Kids Universe AR. They have so much fun exploring the world with Dex T-Rex!
