I hosted a #DisneySide Bunco Party recently and we had a blast. I invited all of the ladies in my neighborhood for a girls' night out. The theme was #DisneySide and with a touch of Valentine's Day. We had the best time. The night was full of great conversation, laughter, delicious food, fun and games. Check it out for yourself...
My best friend and I had the opportunity to go to a Moms' Night Out movie screening last night. We had the best time. As you can see from the pictures, we had a moms' night out of our own! We enjoyed dinner and drinks at Ruby Tuesday before walking over to the movie theater to watch Moms' Night Out. It is a hilarious feel good movie with a great message. We could relate to almost everything in the movie and laughed the entire time. This movie is not just for the ladies. My husband will relate to what the dads in the movie were going through while their wives were out "unplugging"! I cannot wait to see it with my husband.
I picked up a new term... stress paralyzed. Have you ever found yourself so stressed out that you are paralyzed and you have to regroup before moving onto the next task? I cannot wait to see my family's reaction when I tell them that I cannot do something, because I am #stressparalyzed! :-) I highly recommend this movie to everyone. It's a great excuse to get out with your girlfriends for a moms' night out.

Olive Garden Restaurants just released a new printable coupon for a FREE Kids' Meal when you purchase an Adult Entree. Limit 2 free kids' meals with the purchase of 2 adult entrees per printable coupon. I love the fact that both of my kids can eat free with just one coupon. Guess who's not cooking tonight?!? I'll have to take a look at their new menu to check out my choices. Their salad is to die for. I can eat an entire bowl by myself! I used to get all of the pepperoncinis in the bowl until my kids acquired a taste for spicy foods. Valid through 3/2/2014.
So, I am sure that you have heard all of the buzz in the media about showing your Disney Side. Now is the time to show the world your Disney Side!

You can show your #DisneySide just about anywhere... home, work, outside playing in the snow (think snow mouse!) or best of all at a Disney Park! Here are a few pictures from my family's trip to Disney World. It's never too late to find your Disney Side. You can find your #DisneySide at any age!
Some of my favorite ways to show my Disney Side include:
First and foremost, the fun and quality time with my family which result in magical memories to be cherished.
Enjoying the rides. Kilimanjaro Safaris is a "must ride" at Animal Kingdom! Experience an exciting expedition through an African style savannah with real animals that are roaming freely. Test Track is a "must ride" at Epcot! Test Track - Board a GM vehicle to experience rigorous testing procedures first hand, from testing your car's suspension to riding through environmental chambers. Fun, fun, fun!
Visiting different Disney Resorts and trying out their restaurants, such as Boma at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Character breakfasts are always fund with the kids.
Participating in events, such as the CAN DO Volunteer event when we planted trees that served green efforts in various Southern states. The kids and I enjoyed lending a hand.
Relaxing and taking it all in at Disney's Resorts. Disney's Polynesian Resort - This is a gorgeous top notch resort. It is a very relaxing and serene resort with beautiful grounds.
Learning about and experiencing different cultures at Epcot, from food to rituals.
Capturing candid moments. I spotted a little girl dressed as a princess going up the stairs at Disney's Polynesian Resort. She looked like a true princess as she held her dress and traveled the stairs with her shiny slippers!
The bakeries... Oh, how could I forget! I smell the bakeries from a mile away! I visit every Disney bakery that I pass. I have never been disappointing! The creations are not only pleasing to the eye, but also very pleasing to the palette!
The grand firework shows are always a great way to end the night.
