Mickey Valentine treats

Valentines Day at Disneyland

My girls love Valentine’s Day. I think it has everything to do with the color pink and their love of anything sweet.

Last year, we spent Valentine’s Day at Disneyland. This year, we’ll just miss the holiday by a week or so.

Mickey and Minnie Valentine Cookies

I loved making the Mickey and Minnie heart cookies last year, and wanted to make something fun again this year. We all love Rice Krispy treats, so Mickey Mouse shaped treats it was.

Rice Krispies

These treats were probably the first dessert I ever made on my own. They are super easy and timeless.


I think as a kid, I loved being able to measure out the three ingredients. Always adding extra marshmallows, because several get lost along the way.

Rice Krispy treats make really good cookie cutter cut-outs.

The hardest part about making these treats, is letting them cool just enough to eat, but retain their gooeyness.

melting chocolate

If you still have some left over to decorate, get some melting chocolate and sprinkles ready to transform them into Mickey Valentine’s treats. Just like the ones they sell in the parks.


Melt the chocolate and have your sprinkles ready. Using a spoon, or an application bottle, paint your Micky with white chocolate. Enough that your sprinkles will stick.

Cover your Mickey shapes with colored sprinkles. The more you coat with the chocolate melts, the more your sprinkles will stick.

Sprinkled Mickey Shapes

We have several people who love Disney and treats. I packaged these up for some neighbors. Of course there were plenty at home for us too.


We couldn’t be at Disneyland for Valentine’s day, so we brought Disneyland to us! Do you have a special Valentine treat you like to share? What is your go-to treat?

Disney On Ice: Let’s Celebrate coming to the Bay Area!

Tracking PixelDisneyOnIce

Disney On Ice is coming back to the Bay Area with a new holiday show, Let’s Celebrate. I was thrilled when we were offered tickets to take the girls to see it. This new show, Disney On Ice, Let’s Celebrate is a great way to see all your Disney favorites in one place. If you haven’t been to a Disney On Ice show, this show could make you take the leap. Or if you’re a fan already, you’ll really like how much they’re changing things up. continued

Every week, I park in front of a Smart & Final when I drop my daughter off for her gymnastics class. It wasn’t until recently that I realized it’s open to the public. It’s a one-stop shop where you can get just about everything. continued

Easy Valentine no-paint canvases

Valentine Canvas Art

Getting ready for the holidays can be a lot of fun. We do a fair amount of entertaining, so I like to keep my decorations updated and fresh. With our impeding move, I need to keep things simple. Working with canvas is always my go-to DIY craft staple. The great thing about canvas, you can use them painted, or not painted. With no-paint canvas art, you can create just about anything. continued

Getting alone time


When my husband and I found out we were having a baby, it was a mutual decision that I would stay home. It’s been over six years now that I’ve been a stay-at-home mom. Now that we have two girls, I’ve found out so much about myself, my husband, and what it’s truly like to raise children. continued

Sad goodbyes, warm hellos

For those of you who haven’t heard my story, I met my husband while we were at school in San Diego. He moved to San Francisco soon after college. I made my way around the world as a flight attendant for several years, and finally settled in San Francisco over ten years ago when we re-connected. continued

Curious event at Sunset Magazine

Just before the holidays I had the opportunity to visit Sunset Magazine and take part in a fun evening of crafting with my fellow blogging friends. The evening was hosted by Curious, a local Bay Area company I’ve been interested in for a while. continued

Holiday cheer with Marley’s coffee

Marley coffee

One of the best times of the year is when we can all get together, sit down, and catch up. Over the holidays, a group of us were able to do just that, thanks to Marley Coffee. Nichole, from In These Small Moments, came to my house and we hosted a “Holiday Cheer with Marley Coffee” party. continued
