Another great year with Disney On Ice!

Despite being a bit nervous about traversing Disney On Ice at the Van Andel Arena with three kids by myself, I dare say the night was a complete success!



The kids absolutely adored Passport to Adventure! They loved seeing some of they favorite Disney characters come to life on the ice as they skated and spun and performed all sorts of tricks.



While I felt Passport To Adventure was one of Disney On Ice’s more less-showy shows (it doesn’t have as elaborate of sets or special effects as some of the other shows), I am continually amazed at the talent of the performers and how they embrace the characters.







While Disney On Ice has concluded for the year here in West Michigan, there are still plenty of opportunities to see one of the amazing shows across the country, including their newest show — FROZEN! You can find tickets to shows in your area at DisneyOnIce.com.



I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of their Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Disney On Ice: Passport To Adventure :: giveaway

It’s not like I was expecting February to magically be all warm, sunny and spring-like. It’s February. It’s still winter. I get it. But this is ridiculous! The days that have managed to shed a smidgen of sunshine have also been bitter cold! So, so cold!

So, you would think I would be dreaming about running away to somewhere warm this month. Sandy beaches. Ocean breezes. But, nope!

Instead we are dreaming about ice….Disney On Ice to be exact!

DIY :: barn wood blanket box

So it has taken me so much longer to get this DIY recap to you than it did to do the actual project, all thanks to some issues on the backend of the blog. Some days it’s so much nice to just work with wood than it is technology. If the wood doesn’t cooperate or turn out the way we want, we just toss it in the fire. Not so easy to do when you’re dealing with websites and servers and codes.

But, alas, I bring you the Barn Wood Blanket Box!

DIY :: Bathroom Storage

When we moved to this house from our condo, we were leaving behind three full baths with ridiculous amounts of bathroom storage. It was probably the hardest part about moving here. Gloriously obscene amounts of bathroom storage {sigh}.

Now all five of us and and all our bathroom stuff pile into one bathroom that has one small cabinet and a tiny space under the sink. {Yes we have a second bathroom in the house but it’s in Talon’s bedroom…not off his bedroom…IN his bedroom. So we only use that for emergencies.}

The old owners were nice enough to leave behind a small three-tiered wicker corner shelf in the bathroom. In an effort not to spend extra money, we gladly put it to use for the kids toothbrushes, hair brushes, and magazines. But then I started noticing how dirty it was getting. And how not easy wicker is to clean. Especially when my kids manage to goob toothpaste all over the place!  Read the rest of this entry…

DIY :: pallet clock

With a huge space between our fireplace mantel and the ceiling peak in our house, I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out how to “fill” that space. Of course I’d love to have a big ol’ moose head mounted up there but I don’t see us jet-setting off to somewhere where we can shoot a moose any time soon. {Instead I settled for this little guy.}

With the moose head on hold, I decided a large clock would look cool up there. Knowing a clock that size (as in, size XL) was not in our budget, I looked for ways to make my own.

First I picked up a large wooden spool used for cable on auction. Should be perfect because it’s already a circle (just need to cut one end off). Then, after getting it home and really sizing it up, I realized that thing is hella heavy!  And just wouldn’t work well for my clock. So, it got repurposed as kids yard toy and, eventually, a winter storage reel for the 500 feet of hose to water my garden. Read the rest of this entry…
