Frozen – Live at the Hyperion theater

Frozen

Next week I will be heading up to Disneyland for the world premiere of Frozen – Live at the Hyperion theater. This is a much anticipated premiere as it will be replacing Aladdin. Those are some pretty big shoes to fill as “Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” ran for 13 years.

Frozen, the musical, will open at the Hyperion Theater in the Disney California Adventure Park on May 27, 2016. The new Frozen production is based off of the 2013 animated feature film and the creators have worked hard at keeping the magic alive in the theatrical performance.

The 1,873-seat Hyperion theater is the perfect venue for such a powerful musical. This theater was made for something spectacular, I think Walt Disney Imagineering made sure this was going to be it. I can’t wait to get a first glance at the performance and will tell you all about it when I get back.

Disclosure: I will be attending the blogger preview night to provide you with the most up to date information about Disneyland. Tickets were provide. All opinions are that of GUG.

Saying goodbye

bubba

A couple of weeks ago, we lost you, Jackson. Last year we found out you had cancer, and it was a rough go initially. But you’ve been in great health since we had a tumor removed on your leg. So it was a shock to us that we had to say goodbye to you so quickly this time.

We miss you. A lot. More than I thought we ever would. Our house is quiet without you here, even with two loud, playful girls running around. No sighs. No rattling of your collar and flapping of your ears as you shake your head. No pitter patter of your feet as you bound up and down the stairs. The silence here is deafening. continued

Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters

We have a new favorite in the Disney California Adventure park. Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters opened in March and we can’t get enough of it. This week, my girls were singing the theme song before we even had our bags packed and ready to hit the road. continued

Toy Story birthday

Just when I thought we had moved on from Toy Story, our four year old surprised us with her birthday party request. Move over princesses, Toy Story for the win. I was kicking myself for not saving the Jesse boots from our oldest daughter, but I think we pulled off a cute little outfit perfect for Addie.

Fresh

Today is a fresh start. A fresh start for writing and bringing back to life the passion that might have been misplaced for a while. Over a year ago, we decided to make some pretty big changes for our family. We were nervous, but thrilled. We relocated and have been busy ever since. I also co-founded a company that didn’t go in the direction we thought it would. After many sleepless nights, I decided to choose joy and find my happy place again.

Close some doors.  Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead you anywhere. -Paulo Coelho

Sometimes being an adult sucks. Making hard decisions is never fun. But at the end of the day, I am much happier now than I have been in a very long time. continued

Halloween at Disneyland

Fall is my favorite time of year. Our kids are back in school and the holidays are just around the corner. We’ve been going to Disneyland around Halloween each year for the last several years. This will be our third year attending Mickey’s Halloween party. For us, this is a great way to start the fall festivities.

HALLOWEEN TIME AT THE DISNEYLAND RESORT (ANAHEIM, Calif.) - The Diamond Celebration continues as guests celebrate Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort from Sept. 11 through Nov. 1, 2015 with dazzling entertainment and decor, in addition to the return of Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. This year, the family-friendly Mickey’s Halloween Party expands to 17 nights throughout the season at Disneyland park, where guests are invited to trick-or-treat in costume, celebrate with favorite Disney Characters and enjoy special presentations of the “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular and the all-new “Paint the Night” parade.

Mickey’s Halloween Party is Disneyland’s annual Halloween event. This year, there are 17 dates available from September 11–November 1. Tickets for the event are on sale now. If you’ve been thinking about going, make sure you get your ticket sooner than later. They sell out fast. continued

Sheet pan meals. dinner is served.

School is starting up again. Now that we have two girls in school, I find myself trying to get back in the kitchen on a regular basis. If you’re anything like me, you’re running around like crazy trying to find extra time in the day just to get things done. With two active kids, I need as many short cuts as possible. Dinner has always been the hardest part of my day, and I have found a way to make it easier on everyone. The sheet pan.
