Disney on Ice Presents Frozen & Encanto Recap

February 13, 2023

Last month I had the opportunity to go see Disney on Ice (for free) so I thought “why not? There’s worst ways to spend a Sunday”. I hadn’t gone to a Disney On Ice show in a few years. I think the last time I went was either in 2017 or 2018 and it was to see Frozen on Ice. Disney on Ice has always had a special place in my heart. When I was a kid, I think second grade, my entire school went to go see Disney On Ice. It was Pixar/Toy Story themed. Keep in mind, I was in second grade in 1999 which is when Toy Story 2 came out. So Toy Story was THAT movie at the time.

I just have so many fawn memories of that trip and of Disney on Ice in general. So when Disney on Ice is in town, I make effort to go.

Side Note: I had no idea that all 11 seasons of Kids Baking Championship were on Discovery+. I spent a majority of my weekend binging it and being jealous that a bunch of children are better at baking them me. I really want to learn to cook more meals from scratch. It’s definitely a goal of mine. Sorry for the random ramblings..

I like Frozen (I prefer Frozen 2 tbh) but I didn’t have any desires to ever see in on ice again.

Boxlunch Loungefly Winnie the Pooh Disney Pin Collecting When I first started writing this post I was saying how it’s even forever since I’ve given you all a pin update. Then I realized it’s only been a month. So technically I’m right on track with my monthly pin update posts. I don’t know why I thought months had gone by without me posting about pins. But anyway….

Here’s the new Disney pins I got in January:

Happy Monday and happy 2023! It’s 2023 and I’m so excited. I feel like it was 2020 yesterday. Maybe it’s just me but I feel like 2021 and 2022 didn’t happen. Or they just went by super fast? I don’t know but I’m welcoming 2023 with open arms. I have so many fun things planned for this year (more on that later). I also have a lot of blog post ideas + blog related things coming up.

Here’s hoping for an amazing 2023!

A Disney Pins Filled Christmas | Disney Munchlings Disney Pins

December 26, 2022

Happy Monday + happy day after Christmas. This time of the year is always bittersweet for me. On the one hand I’m sad that the Christmas season is over. But then again, I’m excited for a New Year and new adventures! I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and great holiday season. And that you’re staying warm (it got to like -8 here in Chicago at one point!).

This Christmas I got a ton of adorable Disney pins to add to my Disney pins collections. I didn’t get the chance to take photos of all of the pins (because I wanted to get them up on the pin boards as soon as possible). But I did remember to take some photos of a couple of my new pins.

Here’s a few of the Disney Pins I got for Christmas: Continue reading

This is Halloween | Halloween Decor at HomeGoods

September 19, 2022

Halloween Decor at HomeGoodsYou guys?! Do you know what Thursday is? FALL! That’s right, this week is officially fall. FINALLY! Which also means my LEAST favorite time of the year, summer, is finally behind us. YAY! Although, I’ll be in California later this week where there’s a heat wave and it’s 95 degrees so I guess I won’t be escaping the summer weather just yet. BUT, here in Chicago the weather has been so beautiful!

And since it’s (almost) fall, that’s means I can finally start decorating for Halloween!! I am not going to lie to you guys…I took these photos back in late Julyish(?) but have waited to post them. I know a lot of people don’t start decorating for fall/Halloween until late September/October but not me! As most of you may know I LOVE holidays so I try to extend them for as long as possible. I like to get almost 2 months worth of the holiday. So for Halloween I start decorating on September 1. That way my decor is up from September – October 31.

And for Christmas I start decorating on November 1 so I get a little under two months of having that decor up. I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it works for me. The longer I get to have my holiday decor up, the happier my mood is! And speaking of holiday decor…

Here’s a look at this years Halloween Decor at HomeGoods! Continue reading
