101 Disneyland Tips turns ONE, let’s celebrate

101 Disneyland Tips

I never believe how fast time flies. It’s hard to believe we just hit the ONE year anniversary of my book, 101 Disneyland Tips. It’s been such a great year and I look forward to sharing a new, revised edition with you early next year.

My book has done really well, and I’m proud of the reviews it has received so far. If you haven’t read it yet, you’re in for a treat. Dawn Cullo, the ultimate Disney fan, wrote the foreword of the book, giving us an abbreviated history of Disneyland. This book is filled with helpful tips for ally parents, any first-time visitor, and even those of you who think you’ve experienced it all. Thank you to all of you who have purchased, read, and shared the book. Without you, it wouldn’t be as successful, I’m sure of it. continued

Baker’s Secret Colored Bakeware


When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait for Christmas morning. I would wake up at the crack of dawn, and run in to the front room where the Christmas tree was to see what Santa had brought. After the presents were long forgotten, I’d realize how hungry I was. Getting up at 4:00am does that to a kid. continued

Tinkerlab: A hands-on guide for little inventors

Kids are funny, and scary. When I realized I had a creative little toddler, I struggled to find ways to keep her busy. I knew our oldest daughter was full of creativity, just like her dad. I needed to find a fun way to have organized chaos. On a very slim budget, I was able to create an amazing space for my girls to make a huge mess while exploring her creative side. Little did I know, I had created our very own “Tinkerlab.”

New Disney Apparel By Jumping Beans at Kohl’s

Getting ready for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, I was eager to have the girls in matching outfits. I think this will be the last year I can get away with it, and I love it when they match.

Kohl’s recently launched classic Mickey and Minnie Disney apparel by Jumping Beans. Looking over the new collection, you can dress your kids in cute Mickey and Minnie inspired clothing.



Newsletter 2.0

It’s been months since we launched our newsletter. I was having a hard time keeping up once we launched the book. Now that we have Dawn onboard, we’re ready to start our tips series again. Over the next few months, we’ll send out the latest Disney news, tips, events, and any DIY projects we might attempt.



Giveaway: Sofia the First Songs from Enchancia

I’ve been a big fan of Sofia the First since the show started on Disney Junior. It’s a favorite with both of our girls. They sing their favorite Sofia the First songs in the car. By now, I know every single word of Enchancia because we play it so often. And of course, my five-year-old daughter knows every single word of the song too.
