    Hershey Park Review & Tips

    Disclosure: Hershey Park was kind enough to provide my family with complimentary tickets to their park in exchange for this Hershey Park Review post. All thought’s, experiences, and opinions are my own. πŸ™‚ Family Time! I finally made it to Hershey Park! Haha! I have lived near Hershey Park all of my life and have never been. Now I want to go back multiple times a year. Our trip to Hershey was fantastic, and we wish we had stayed longer. It was also the first time to the park for my kids. (My husband had been before as a child.) We stayed at the Hershey Lodge and took advantage of…

    Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Trailer Reaction

    Disney is releasing a sequel to their 2014 movie, Maleficent. On October 18, 2019 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will hit theaters. (Just in time for Halloween.) Below is my reaction to the latest trailer. My Reaction So, I had three reactions to this trailer. My first was how the trailer for Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil already looks better than the first movie. Hands down. In 2014 when Maleficent came out I did not have a feeling of “Oh! I need to go see this in the theater.” It was more of a wait till it came out to rent feeling. The Maleficent: Mistress of Evil trailer though has me…

    Disney’s Live Action Mulan: Teaser Trailer Reaction

    One of My Disney Favorites The teaser trailer for Disney’s live action Mulan hit the internet recently, and this Disney fan is excited! (I will be honest with you. Disney has been hit-or-miss with their live action remakes. Sorry Dumbo.) I am usually not one to make teaser trailer reactions, but Mulan has been one of my personal favorite Disney characters since the animated version released in 1998. What caused me to love her so much is the duality in her life. (Her duty to bring honor to her family through a good marriage, but her having the courage to risking everything to save the one’s she loves.) The song…

    Places to Stay Near Hershey Park: Hershey Lodge Review

    Disclosure: While visiting Hershey Park recently my family and I were given a discount on our stay at the Hershey Lodge. I was not required to write a review of the Lodge, but I wanted too because my family and I loved the Lodge so much. The Lodge Recently during our trip to Hershey, PA, to visit Hershey Park, we had the opportunity to stay at the Hershey Lodge. (My family and I have never stayed at a Hershey resort before so we were excited to try it out.) From where we are located in Maryland it takes us about 1.5 hours to drive to the Hershey, PA area. The…

    Product Review – EzPz Mini Mat

    Food Fight As a new parent I was so proud when my daughter started eating solids and eventually showing interest in using a plate and utensils. What I wasn’t too fond of, but of course it was adorable, was when my daughter would take her plate and dump it upside down so all the food would run or fly off. To her it was so much fun to dump her plate and feed the dogs her dinner. (Not fun for mom or dad who had to clean up or take care of said gassy dogs. haha!) When we went out for dinner, knowing are daughter would just dump her plate,…

    Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Movie Review

    Growing Up with Toy Story I don’t know about you, but I grew up with the Toy Story movies. Over a 24-year span I watched, and loved, the adventures of Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bo Peep, Slinky Dog, Hamm, Rex, and more. While they grew up with Andy, I grew up alongside them, and when they were no longer Andy’s toys I cried. But in Toy Story 3 the gang was passed onto Bonnie, and it seemed like a fitting end to the Toy Story movies. Woody still had a kid to make happy, and all was right. Then came along Toy Story 4. Mixed Feelings When I heard Disney/Pixar was…

    KidsEmbrace Buzz Lightyear Combination Car Seat Review

    This post is sponsored. I did receive a free KidsEmbrace combination car seat in exchange for my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I would never recommend a product that either I or my family did not like. To Target and Beyond! Haha! This is what my 3-year-old said after we unboxed her new KidsEmbrace Buzz Lightyear combination car seat. We have been in full Toy Story 4 mode here at our house so it was like Christmas when I surprised my oldest with her new car seat. (I mean what kid wouldn’t want to ride around with their favorite Disney or Marvel character? Haha!) But if you…

    Toy Story 4 Prize Pack Giveaway

    Do you remember the first time you saw Toy Story on the big screen? I remember mine. It was so exciting and I loved it, and every Toy Story movie after. I grew up with Toy Story, and I am so excited my 1st child is now old enough to watch and enjoy the movies too. She is Woody and Buzz Lightyears biggest fan, and she goes crazy every time he see’s a promo for Toy Story 4. This month of June has been nothing but Toy Story in our house and I am ok with it! The Toy Story franchise has been extremely successful – and now the fourth…

    DIY Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4 Forky Craft

    Toy Story Who here has grown up watching the Toy Story movies? I have, and they have been a big part of my childhood. Toy Story 3 turned me into a big baby, and I teared up throughout the movie. After Toy Story 3 I thought that was the end of the Toy Story movies. Welp, I was wrong! Haha! Later this month Disney/Pixar is coming out with Toy Story 4, and I am so excited! Not only do I get to continue watching the adventures of Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bullseye, Hamm, Rex, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, and the Aliens, but Bo Peep is back! They have…
