The Planning Phase of My #DisneySide @Home Celebration!

January 21, 2015

Now that we have the ball rolling on my #DisneySide @Home Celebration, I am ready to share a few details!

Because we were chosen to have a Disney Villain Tween / Teen party, I knew right away who our character focus was. The party will be a Mardi Gras theme with an emphasis on Dr. Facilier (Disney's The Princess and the Frog). That does not mean that a few of our other favorite villains will not be represented (Maleficent, Ursula and maybe a hint of Jack Sparrow)!

The party is for my very own 12 year old Princess Kelsey (I call her Miss Thing) who is a "Rock Star"! She is an awesome child who understands what it means to be selfless. When her dad got out of the hospital in November 2014, she stepped up and helped me to care for him in so many ways (from making snacks for my son, to washing the clothes and dishes without being told, and cleaning up so that my husband could get round without falling). For those that do not know, my husband was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis about 14 years ago and recently had a "flare-up" that caused him to be placed in the hospital for a little over a week. Thankfully, he is doing much better, and though he still has a way to go in his recovery, it is a reason to celebrate. I am so proud of her and who she is, and not only is she a great student (A's & B's), but she is an athlete who plays soccer, volleyball and run track. So you see when this opportunity presented itself, I was excited because SHE gets to have a "day" just for herself. 

I know what you are thinking.... Did I get invitations?  Why YES, yes I did! Here is a sneak peek of the invites. I am not ready to show the full invitation, because the creative mind behind this invitation is not finished just yet, but when she is done, I will share. 

More to come, stay tuned!

"Are You Ready!!!?" My #DisneySide Celebration

January 8, 2015


"Well, Well"....... Imagine my surprise when I opened my email to see that I was chosen to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration!

The #DisneySide @Home Celebration is a program that provides a special celebration kit for selected individuals to have their own #DisneySide celebration in their own home (Party, Party!). What I found fascinating was that I get to host a party for some awesome Tweens and Teens with a fun focus on Disney's most wicked villains (hence my title -Dr.Facilier - Disney's Princess and the Frog and the beginning of my post - Maleficent from Disney's Maleficent).

I am still hammering out some of the details as I go, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates!!

Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection The Little Mermaid - Review and Giveaway!

January 3, 2015

“I received the Little Mermaid Legacy Collection CD as a member of the Entertainment New Media Network.  No further compensation was received and all opinions are my own.  This post may also contain affiliate links.”


As soon as I received this CD in the mail, I rushed to give it a listen because The Little Mermaid is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies. Everyone that knows me knows that I am an all around Disney fan, and the music is no exception because it is timeless and can be great with or without the movies themselves, in my opinion. This CD is spectacular and I am so glad that I got the opportunity to review it. Words can not describe the memories that came flooding back when I listened to a few of my favorites like: Under the Sea, Part of Your World, Poor Unfortunate Souls or Kiss The Girl. I think now is a good time to break out in song, who's going to join me?

Honoring the continuing legacy of the Disney music catalog, Walt Disney Records' newly launched site, Disney Music Emporium (DME), is a destination for collectible Disney music products that also features monthly columns by guest writers, a News tab for fun Disney facts, plus videos that exclusively debut on DME including behind-the-scenes of beloved soundtracks, The Lost Chords and more.

The label honors one of the most beloved soundtracks of all time with the 25th anniversary release of Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection The Little Mermaid is available today.


When you purchase the CD, you will find a 20 page booklet that includes some background information and lyrics so that the entire family will finally know all of the words to the songs (I won't mention any names). The CD also includes 2 discs, with one of the disc featuring demos of some of the song moments that take the listener through the process on how the songs were developed, understanding what the authors wanted to communicate, and ultimately leading into what the song became.

The great news is that you can own this awesome 2-disc set by visiting the Disney Music Emporium: www.disneymusicemporium.com or iTunes: http://smarturl.it/lclma1.
