During our visit to Disney World last October, out first with our kids, I insisted we do at least one Character Dining Experience. There are so many to choose from at varying locations, times, price ranges, I decided to pick one in a location I knew well. Fort Wilderness, my childhood Disney stomping grounds, offers a fun outdoor character dining experience with Mickey’s Backyard BBQ.
April 22nd is Earth Day and in celebration the kids and I decided to do a little craft. We settled on a popsicle stick bird feeder, mostly because we had a lot of popsicle sticks making a mess of our craft closet and Minnie was stealing them every chance she got.
Since purchasing and bringing home our first RV, I have been making list after list, taking inventory of our closets and shopping to stock the trailer with everything we would need for a comfortable camping trip. I am lucky enough to have very experienced RVers for parents as well as my own experience camping and RVing in my younger years so I felt pretty comfortable knowing what I needed and what would be too much.
I am only stocking with the interior of the trailer and the patio/activity supplies right now and I will break this post into 5 sections. Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom, Patio and Entertainment.
I am still obsessed with all things Beauty and the Beast after seeing the new remake last month. Everything about it was so perfect and so magical, I feel like I need to see it again because there is so much to take in at once. I am sure I missed so much detail. Penny came with me and she was also in love. A couple of scenes made her a bit nervous, when the Beast first appears and again when the wolves attack Belle and the Beast, but it was nothing she couldn’t handle. Following the movie she insisted I call her Plumette after her favourite feathery character.
Our backyard and deck become essentially an outdoor room in the spring and summer months. After winter in a snow belt, we try and spend as much time as we can outside enjoying the sun and fresh air. Last year we purchased a basic gazebo to provide some much needed shade on our deck. It was large enough to fit our patio table and chairs underneath and we ended up using the deck so much more than we would have without it.
This year I am looking to make the are more comfortable and relaxing with some fun textiles like throws, rugs and pillows and also more usable with lighting.
Have you ever considered a vacation to one of Disney’s beach properties? Have you worried that it would be missing some of the Disney magic you know you would find at Disney World or Disneyland? Well, worry not. We are sharing 5 very convincing reasons you should visit Disney Hilton Head Island Resort, located on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Our family took a week long trip there recently and truly fell in love with the resort and the South Carolina Low Country. Here is our experience and it includes lots of pictures and pixie dust!
Spring is here, Easter is around the corner and Penny’s kindergarten class is throwing another class party to celebrate this special time of year. This month I am feeling short on time so I put together the most simple class gift I could think of. Bubbles!
Every June my mother in law, Penny and myself head out to a local strawberry patch and spend an hour filling a few baskets of strawberries. After we collect our share and Penny is full from sitting in the rows and eating as many berries as she can stomach, we race home to hull and freeze bag after bag ensure we have plenty of local berries to make home made jam!
Easter is next month and even though winter is making an attempt at an extended stay, I am busy getting ready for warm weather and spring festivities.
I wanted to make a colourful, fun and inexpensive easter wreath to get the kids in the springtime spirit. I decided on a bright and fluffy tulle wreath adorned with colourful easter eggs.
Throughout the month of March I have been participating in the $100 Room Challenge, a home decorating and DIY challenge put together by Erin at Lemons Lavender and Laundry. One room gets made over with $100 dollars in one month. This was really a great challenge to take a long look at what you have, what you can do on your own and what you need to put together a functional and beautiful space that wont break the bank. Another wonderful bonus, I had a deadline! I had committed so there was no more putting things off for later. I loved being on a strict timeline because things actually got done!
