We are a Disney family, as you might have already discovered. My girls love to read and one of their favorite subjects is none other than the Disney Princesses. My oldest went off to Kindergarten this year and my husband and I knew we were going to get her a personalized Disney book as a gift. Then fate struck and Put Me In The Story released a special personalizable book called Dream Big Princess, what could be more perfect than that for a 5 year old who is heading off to “big girl school”.
I remember watching the Power Rangers when I was a young kid. And now my daughters watch it too! There are lots of versions now but their favorite is Saban’s Power Rangers Dino Charge. They were really excited when we got an advance copy of the newest DVD, RISE. This DVD features 4 episodes and a bonus Halloween special. Halloween is my 5 year old’s favorite holiday and so she loves all things spooky. She really enjoyed the Halloween special (OK, the whole family did) and I highly recommend you pick it up to help celebrate Halloween this year!
I have a pug and she is truly a member of our family. He name is Khaleesi and she is certainly a Queen. We all love her more than anything. If you have a dog that you love more than anything as well, check out these 5 items that every dog owner needs!
Everyone’s favorite furry characters are back at it again! Elmo and his friends discover the magic of numbers in their newest educational adventure, Sesame Street: Monster Magic. This special has fun brewing on Sesame Street and Elmo, Rosita, Abby are exploring their magical talents, while learning a thing or two along the way. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, the non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to help kids grow smarter, stronger and kinder, will release Sesame Street: Monster Magic on DVD October 4, 2016.
My daughters and I are huge fans of Veggie Tales. We have been for as long as I can remember. So when Veggie Tales in the House started on Netflix, we were hooked! We love to binge watch seasons together and these have been a hit with the whole family! I love Veggie Tales because my daughters learn good lessons with great morals. Veggie Tales teaches them the right way to act in situations and I can see that they have grown just from watching it. Plus, who doesn’t love the fun vegetable characters! Veggie Tales in the House Season 4 hit Netflix today and we have already watched several episodes (our favorite so far is the first part of episode 2, Invisible Arm Wrestling).
I love to show off my geek pride in any way that I can. So when I found out about TeeBlox, I was thrilled! TeeBlox is a monthly subscription box that will send you an officially licensed T-Shirt – and you get to pick the theme! They have eight equally amazing themes to choose from (trust me, I have been trying them all!) that are geared towards geeks and gamers. One of the categories is even games (and I have seen some Pikachu shirts being sent out!). I am a Marvel girl myself, so of course I lingered on that one for a while. I got Disney for my daughter and she loves it! She has a great collection of Minnie and Mickey shirts now!
I recently went on a Disney Cruise and had the time of my life! It was just a three day cruise but it was a blast. My family and I have since planned a second one for this coming February and I cannot wait to experience it with my husband. He has been in class for work and was unable to attend the last one, so I took my mom. I was sure to take lots of mental notes on what adult activities there were that my husband and I could enjoy while our daughters are at the Oceaneers Club and Lab. There were actually lots of things – but my top three MUST DO activities that I recommend for adults on a Disney cruise are hitting the spa, eating at Palo (or Remy), and lounging in the 18+ deck area.

You may remember Nikki DeLoach as a child member of The Mickey Mouse Club, along with Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, and Keri Russell! She stars in one of the fantastic celebrity YouTube PSAs promoting the Peanuts Rocks the Vote campaign! As a Peanuts Ambassador, I was lucky enough to get the chance to talk with her on the phone about the Peanuts Rock the Vote Campaign! I learned a lot about this campaign (and went right to the website with my daughters after getting off the phone).
My girls and I love Hello Kitty! I collect stuffed animals and figures of my favorite characters and Hello Kitty is one of them. I was so excited when Hallmark sent me one of the new Hello Kitty itty bittys® – and it is adorable! I absolutely love it, and have been proudly displaying it on my desk ever since it arrived. My daughters love her so much that they try to steal her at least three times a day.
