Tangled is one of the most popular movies in our house. I have two young girls who just love Rapunzel, Flynn, and Pascal! For Halloween a couple of years ago we were all Tangled characters. Whenever we go to Disney World, Rapunzel is a must meet for us! And now that they started a character breakfast with her and Flynn, that will be a must book as well. So when we heard about Tangled Before Ever After, we were thrilled! Kicking off a new TV series with a TV movie is a fabulous idea! We, of course, tuned in the night it aired – and we all loved it!
I run my girls around a lot – and I know this is only the beginning. They both do dance, but they are on different nights so it is a lot of time out of the house. In order to pass the time in the waiting room, I often pull out my phone and do some mobile gaming. There are a few that I really like but I am always up for a new game to try out. Elephant Mouse, the independent game publisher of the iOS hits Star Trek™ Rivals and Archetype, recently released the colorful and clever endless climber game, Twisty Sky, for iOS. The game, which requires both puzzle solving and quick reflexes, is available as a free download on the iTunes App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
So, I have yet to make it to the theater with my daughters to see the new live action Beauty and the Beast. I know, I know, please don’t kill me. We tried! We live in a tiny little city and our small theater was sold out the first two weekends (I really should have planned in advance but showings NEVER sell out there), and then my daughter was sick. Life has been happening and I cry a little bit each day that goes by without having seen it. Well, all that is about to change because the Sing-Along version hits theaters this weekend and I am determined to see it – even if I need to drive over an hour to a bigger theater!
Last year, as part of a press trip, I was lucky enough to check out The Walt Disney Family Museum. It was so powerful for me as a Disney lover and I can’t even think about certain things I saw without tearing up. I can’t describe the feeling it felt. So if you are ever in San Francisco, I highly recommend swinging in and spending some time there. This Spring and Summer The Walt Disney Museum is adding some youth summer classes and a brand new exhibition that will make your trip even more worthwhile.
The most Miraculous adventures of Ladybug and Cat Noir continue! Paris’ favorite crime-fighting duo return in a new volume of the action-adventure, romantic comedy that will have you on the edge of your seat. The action-packed CGI animated TV series Miraculous™: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir: It’s Ladybug! will be available on DVD April 11, 2017, from Shout! Kids, in collaboration with ZAG. This release includes six amazing episodes on DVD and a Ladybug paper doll! My daughters are HUGE fans of the series and they were so excited to get an advance copy of this DVD. We watched it immediately and they loved every episode.
My girls love everything about space! They have turned into total space nerds after our trip to the Planetarium a few years back. So when the new DVD, Floogals, arrived at our door and they noticed the characters were in rocket ships, they were thrilled! They asked if we could put the disk in right away – and we did. Within minutes they fell in love with the Floogals – and my husband and I enjoyed watching along with them as well!
I am not a big makeup person in the sense that I do not do a full face of makeup everyday. But one thing that I do nearly every day is wear lipstick. I just feel like it makes my face pop and I enjoy wearing it. I learned about LipSense from a friend of mine, Kara, who happens to sell it. She told me that it lasts entire day – if not longer. I am constantly reapplying lipstick so this sounded like something that would save me lots of time. She sent me some to try out and boy, did it make a difference!
The warmer weather is coming and it’s time to start thinking about outdoor living spaces. We’re so excited to share this backyard storage giveaway for the brand new Step2 StoneFront Patio Collection Cooler & Storage and a Ready Shed by Backyard Discovery (worth a combined retail value of $1,998!).
One of my daughters’ favorite thing to do on Saturday mornings is turn on Netflix and watch a couple of their favorite shows. They were thrilled see yesterday (4/1/17) that there was BRAND NEW DinoTrux to watch! Season 4 was released on Netflix on Friday, March 31st, and they could not wait to watch it all! They were bummed when it was time to turn the TV off and do some chores because they had “only watched 4 new episodes”. I think I know what they will be watching over the next few days!
If you are looking to fill your little one’s Easter Basket with fun and unique gifts this year, look no further! Sure, we all want to add candy to their baskets, and I have chosen some great stuff to include, but I always enjoy adding some toys and other items that will get longtime use! Here is a list of items that I know the Easter Bunny would be happy to hop in with at your house this year! If you have any suggestions yourself, feel free to leave a comment letting everyone know!
