Disney Frozen Party Ideas #QuickerPickerUpper #DisneyFrozen @Bounty #Ad

    As a busy Working Mom, I don't have a lot of time to party plan and I especially don't have time for the messy cleanup during and after the party.  Normally, I try to make cleaning up fun for everyone, including the kids, so they won't realize that they are actually helping to get rid of the mess because they are enjoying themselves too much.  Now, you can make clean up quick and fun for the whole family with limited-edition NEW Bounty Prints Featuring Disney Frozen!    Frozen is one of my most beloved Disney animated films and Bounty napkins and paper towels are a staple in our home because they are tough on messes and, in a house full of men, I need all the tough I can get.  Aside from keeping a clean house, I also love to be able to save a little money on party decor whenever possible.  After all, raising a family can be very expensive and it is important to cut corners and not put too much strain on the family budget.    … [Read more...]

I am focusing mainly on the Magic Kingdom as that is where we had our last visit but there is a lot to do within the Disney Parks.Magic KingdomFreedom- Give your teen a little freedom, depending on the age and responsibility level of course. Even though it may be a family trip consider giving them at least a few hours off in the park on their own. They are more likely to come back together to meet up for pictures and meals with a smile on their face if given a little leeway.Behind the scenes … [Read more...]

Spend Family Time Making A Wind Wheel! #HadaPirata #Ad

*This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Disney Studios.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.    Spending time with my sons is on the top of my list of priorities.  As a Working Mom, I spend a lot of time away from them due to my career and I like to take advantage of every opportunity to bond with them or to engage in educational activities with them.  We do a lot of fun things when we are together and making arts and crafts is just one of them.    This evening, we are watching Disney’s Pirate Fairy on Blue-ray™ and Digital and watching a familia of hadas or family of fairies working together to bring their loved one, Zarina, back home after she has made the wrong decision and gotten mixed up in some bad company.  Like we say in Spanish, "Dime con quien tú andas y te digo quien eres."*  They encounter some pirates and use some pixie dust on their adventures which ultimately help to bring the fairies together again.    We are so … [Read more...]
