Precious Moments Growing in Grace Figurines | #PreciousMoments

I have a set of Precious Moments from when I was a little girl – the birthday train set with all different animals. I some how lost a couple along the way, but I still display it because it brings back great memories of when my parents would give me the figurines for my birthday each year. I am hoping that my daughters will look at their Growing in Grace set the same way when they are older. I just received the Age 5 figurine for my oldest daughter, and I plan to catch up with the first four for her over the next couple of months. I will start a collection for my 3 year old as well. I love Precious Moments figures and am so excited to be sharing that love with my daughters now.

Choose Your Side with Marvel American Tourister Luggage: #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan? #Giveaway

The biggest movie in the world right now is Captain America: Civil War. If you have not seen it yet, what are waiting for? It is action packed, thrilling, and just – well – it is incredible. (You can read my full review here). I am a huge comic book fan and have always been on Team Iron Man when it comes to the Civil War story line, but after watching the movie, I can honestly say that I am divided. I walked away not knowing who is on the “right” side – in fact, I don’t think there is one. We are a house divided, as you can see above. My 3 year old LOVES Captain America (she was even him for Halloween) and my 4 year old is an Iron Man girl through and through. I was thrilled to be able to give them their own American Tourister luggage to help them represent their teams while on trips.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Teaser Trailer is Finally Here! | #BeOurGuest #Disney

Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite Disney movie. Belle was my favorite Disney Princess while growing up (and still is). I think I really connected to her because I was a total bookworm. I would literally read a minimum of 4 or 5 books a week when I was younger. I remember during one of my first trips to Disney, I turned 11. That day I got to meet Belle (in her white and blue outfit) and she wrote “Happy Birthday Tessa!” in my book. I thought it was the coolest thing. So much so that I ripped it out and hung it on my wall. I really wish I hadn’t done that because now that page is lost – but the memories are not. I was so excited for my daughters to meet Belle at Disney World last October and have a picture of them with her framed on my desk.

Kate & Mim-Mim: Balloon Buddies on DVD 5/24 | #KateAndMimMim #DisneyJr

My daughters love Kate & Mim-Mim. We recently got a DVD of the show and they have been watching it over and over and over – so I was thrilled to find out that the second one is coming out! They love it (of course) and have been watching it with their plush Mim-Mim that they both love so much. My 4 (almost 5 – where does the time go?) year old loves to spin around in circles holding him and pretend that she has been transported to Mimiloo.

Review: The Finest Hours | #TheFinestHours #Disney

I was lucky enough to check out this movie a few days before it’s release and boy, am I glad I watched it. I had planned to go see it in theaters with my husband, but with two little kids date nights are few and far between, and it just never worked out. My husband was in the U.S. Navy for years and so any movie that has to do with the military on the ocean, well, it is a must see for him. Throw in the fact that this film is based on a true story – one that he knows everything about – about a famous U.S. Coast Guard rescue, well, we knew we were going to be picking it up once released. The other night we got the girls settled in to bed and popped it in.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Sport-y-thon on DVD 5/24 | #MickeyMouse #Disney #Giveaway

My daughters love Mickey Mouse. Maybe some of their mom’s love for Disney has rubbed off on them – OK, it definitely has. We have always been a Disney family and so they love all things Mickey Mouse and friends! Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is one of our favorite shows in our home – it is something we watch together nearly every day. So when the brand new Mickey Moust Clubhouse DVD, Sport-y-thon, arrived at our door, I had two very excited little girls. In fact, I think it was in our home less than 5 minutes before it was open and in the DVD player. My 4 year old immediately noticed the Exclusive Golden Mickey Medal that comes with every DVD and put it on. She was so excited to have a medal just like Mickey and his friends.
