Frozen on Broadway!

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Exciting announcement from Disney today!

Frozen on Broadway no longer refers to me as I walk to work in New York City during the winter.
Holiday Snowflake 5th Avenue & 57th St. in NYC

Frozen is joining Aladdin and The Lion King on Broadway!

The show will premiere in the spring on 2018 and will be based on a book by the film's screenwriter Jennifer Lee.
For those of you who don't live in NYC... I think now would be a great time to start planning a trip!
If you can't make it to town I am sure the show will go on tour eventually as legions of Anna and Elsa fans out there will help to make this a sure hit.


Everything's coming up Minnie!

Disney Store Minnie Collectible Doll

Ever feel like you find out about all the fun, collectible Disney merchandise after it is sold out?  The Disney Store released a Limited Edition Minnie Collector Doll on 1/22/16 and it is already sold out online!  I hear rumors that some stores may still have the cute little fashionista on hand but it is probably like finding a needle in the Magic Kingdom.  

It is for this very reason that I am coming to you with an early public service announcement.  
Start saving your money ladies because the fabulous designer Kate Spade is coming out with her very own designer Minnie inspired purse in March.  I personally wish it was coming out in time for Valentine's Day.  
Hint Hint to all the dear husbands reading along. 


Kate Spade Minnie Limited Edition Purse

I can't wait to see this in person!  I can just imagine wearing this to formal events and adding a little sparkle and mischief to my step.  Until then I might be pursuaded to rock this polka dot purse called "Maise" by Kate Spade.  I don't know about you but I'm thinking Ms. Spade may have had a little Minnie on her mind when creating Maise as well!

Goodbye, Osborne Lights!

Monday, December 21, 2015


I am one of those annoying people who is immediately in the Christmas mood the minute I finish eating Thanksgiving dinner (actually, if I'm being honest I've had the Christmas radio station on since the first week of November)!

I wish I could see the Osborne Lights this year for their last run! Have you ever seen them? Instead of focusing on not being there I am going to bask in the happiness of getting to visit once upon a time!

Farewell, Dancing Lights! You will be missed!

Christmas means even more Disney magic at home!

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

If Disney is the most magical place on Earth and Christmastime is the most magical time of year its no wonder they go together like Peanut Butter & Jelly (or Banana if that's your fancy).  My home sparkles with the magical shimmer of Disney all year but at Christmas there are no decorations as fun or whimsical.  We have a ton of stuff but I guess the best place to start is the tree.

I think having a Disney tree sort of just happened to us.  It started when my mom used to let me and my sister and brother each pick out an ornament growing up.  By the time I was 10 or 11 I started picking Disney ones every year (and my mom is so cute she still buys us a new ornament every year)!

I collect ornaments from most of my trips.  After I got divorced I realized that having the same ornament each year was less fun than picking out something special. I like to go with what I am into in that moment to remind myself of the trip. I collect ornaments when I see them during the year (from some Disney on Broadway shows or special trips).

Somewhere along the way my decorations around the house have slowly started to become Disney themed as well! The epitome of which is that thanks to a colleague all of my "extra" or "filler" ornaments are the beautiful ones that came from a monthly subscription!

I am also a big fan of the snowglobe pairs and ornaments Disney Store offers each year.  And I guess the idea of Disney magic isn't that different from Christmas magic... it stays the whole year throughI know there are lots of people today who still don’t get it but I do, and you do if you are reading this, you probably do too!  

Looking for some holiday ideas?  I am always fully stocked in Disney cocoa, and OF COURSE I always manage to incorporate Disney it into my Christmas baking. (Click the pictures below for the links to the recipes pictured!)
