DIY Disney Cruise Door Decorations + My Favorites I Found on Etsy | #DisneyCruise #DIY

I took my daughters on a Disney Cruise last August. We loved it so much that we immediately booked (while still on board) another Disney Cruise. We leave next week and I am so excited about it! One thing we did not do for our last cruise but decided we could not miss out on it this time is door decorations. My 5 year old loved walking around the ship and pointing out the different door decorations that we found. She enjoyed reading all of the names on them and looking at pictures that were put up. There are tons of options on Etsy and Amazon, but my girls love being crafty (even though their mama really isn’t). So we went ahead and decided to make our door decorations this time.

Why Boise POLARIS Premium Paper Makes All The Difference in Your Home Office | #Giveaway

Between me working from home and my daughter’s school projects, we use a lot of printer paper. My youngest daughter is only 4 and not in school yet and we work on her letters, math, and writing at home. To help me do this, I print a lot of materials. Not to mention all the coloring pages that my girls insist of printing out (on a daily basis!). I have learned the hard way that choosing the right printer paper for the task at hand is very important. If you choose the wrong paper you can end up with ink bleeding through to the other side (or your desk or table), jammed paper, smudged paper, and even ripped paper. That is why I have teamed up with Boise POLARIS Premium Paper to help you discover the right paper for the job.

Principal Photography on the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story Has Begun! | #StarWars #HanSolo

If you know anything about me, you know I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I am also a huge Han Solo fan (I mean, how can you not be). When the Han Solos solo film (see what I did there) was announced, I was thrilled. I can not wait to delve deeper into one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars universe! I just found out that principal photography has begun on this film and it is becoming more real to me now! The actors involved are amazing – Donald Glover anyone? I LOVE him! He is going to be the perfect Lando! I am thrilled that I only have to wait until May 2018 to see this movie – I am so used to Star Wars movies coming out in December. Buckle up guys – this is going to be an amazing ride!

An Exclusive Interview with Jill Schulz & Melissa Menta about the Snoopy & Belle in Fashion Tour | #Snoopy

I am so excited to have been chosen as a Peanuts Brand Ambassador for a second year in a row. I grew up with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and friends – and my young daughters are too. I have many fond memories of watching the movies with my family when I was a little girl, and I love being able to instill that love for Snoopy & friends in my girls now. Recently the Snoopy & Belle in Fashion tour kicked off in LA and as part of this ambassadorship, we were lucky enough to be able to chat with non other than Jill Schulz, Peanuts creator Charles Schulz and Melissa Menta, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Peanuts Worldwide LLC, and the producer of the Snoopy and Belle In Fashion Exhibit.

Sports Moms: Get Organized with TeamSnap So You Can Enjoy the Game! | #OhSnapApp #SSPartners

My daughters have been doing dance for 3 years already – and they are only 4 and 5. Next year they want to join the competition team and I am totally behind that. The problem is, I am not very organized in general. I have multiple calendars around the house but I always forget to look at them. I am always nervous that I will miss a competition or double book us. My nephews are on several different sports teams – baseball, football, and basketball – and we try to go to a few of their games a year – but I can;t keep their schedule straight. So when I found out about TeamSnap, I knew it was something that I could use to get organized – and that my sister-in-law would love too!

Easy DIY Fish Extender & Fish Extender Gift Guide | #DisneyCruise Series #DIY

While on board the Disney Dream last August, I learned all about Fish Extender groups. What exactly is a fish extender? Well, outside your room on the ship is a message holder – in most cases it’s shaped like a fish (but can be a starfish or sea horse). This is there for Disney to place important communications to you, such as excursion tickets and notes from the Cruise staff. It is basically a mailbox for your room. A Fish Extender (FE) it is something that you hang off the fish, much like a pocketed organizer. By hanging the Fish Extender off of the fish the Cast Members can still use it for its original purpose.
