Anyone else been spending all of your downtime poolside this summer? We certainly have. It can be such a bummer to have to stop the…

Much like myself when I was younger, my daughter Zoe loves to play with my makeup. And even though the thought of her growing up makes me weep, I thought it might be fun to have a few friends over to play dress up!
I set up 5 stations to help us on our journey to becoming “super-model fashionistas”
It’s wedding season and with multiple friends planning upcoming ceremonies, love is definitely in the air! Briana has been one of my best friends for a long time now and I even got to be a co-conspirator in planning where and how Adam would pop the question; so even before I was asked to be maid-of-honor, I insisted on hosting an engagement party for our close friends. What can I say, I’m a hopeless romantic who loves a good love story. Vince and I first met the happy couple years ago through our shared love of Disney and Disneybounding so we knew right away that Disney would be in the details for this special occasion. Not only that, but the movie Tangled has extra sentimental value to them (Briana was once very good friends with Rapunzel while working at the Magic Kingdom) so choosing the theme for this particular soiree was the easiest part. From there, I just had to figure out details.
This post is a throwback to a fun campout we had with the kids last summer! I wasn’t blogging regularly back then, but we had so much fun that I thought it was definitely worth sharing in honor of this week’s Disney Family #DisneyWeekend theme being back yard camp out! We made our campout a Wilderness Explorer theme, because not only do we love the movie Up (and let’s face it, ALL the Pixar movies), but I had the idea of adding a bit of learning to the experience by having the kids participate in different activities to earn Wilderness Explorer “badges” (stickers) just like Russel has in the movie!
We recently had the pleasure of attending one of the most epic birth– er, un-birthday parties I’ve even been to. With help from her family and others in the Disney community, Velia, the mother of Sophie (better known as @growinguponmainstreet on Instagram) transported guests down the rabbit hole by transforming an entire backyard into a literal Wonderland. From masterfully crafted Wonderland themed snacks to beautiful backdrops, no detail was left out. And to top it off, Alice and the Mad Hatter themselves (performed by The Adventure Effect) were guests of the party! They ran around with the kids, told stories, posed for pictures, and even played a rousing game of “Alice Says.”
