It’s Trivia Time, Babes

As we get ready for Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy tomorrow, we love throwing out a bit of Disney trivia to start us off.  


Many of these are easy. I expect you to ace them. However, two of these questions blew my mind and I need to know if it’s the same for you. This is important.  (I’ll post the answers Thursday!)

1. Ariel has a fascination with what, in “The Little Mermaid?”

2. In “The Little Mermaid,” Ursula gives Ariel the ability to walk on land. How long is this ability supposed to last?

3. What is the name of Ariel’s best friend?

4. What is the device that Ariel refers to as a “dinglehopper?”

5. What is Andy’s last name?

6. Sid Phillips, Andy’s next-door neighbor from the original Toy Story makes a brief appearance in the third movie as what?

7. The calendar in Andy’s room is always set to what month?

8. True or False: Lots-o’-Huggin Bear appeared in the first Toy Story movie.

9. What is the name of the daycare center the toys end up at in Toy Story 3?

10. How do the toys realize that Andy is looking for them in Toy Story 3?

11. Who saves the toys from the incinerator in Toy Story 3?

12. Where does Ken ask Barbie to live with him?

Halloween Costume Ideas

It is October 20th and the Halloween costumes I meant to purchase two weeks ago are still on the proverbial rack. I’m often a failure at Halloween costumes and I’m glad my kids seem to be used to expecting it. We’ve reached the point in Halloween preparedness called: Where Whatever You Have On Hand Plus Scary Make-Up.

Or: Where What Your Sister Wore Last Year.

I always have good intentions. Really. We first chatted about costumes nearly three weeks ago. Life, as it always does, takes over and then when you ‘come to’ it is all of a sudden the week before Halloween and you don’t even have a single spider web hung. (Of course, the ones that were already there can stay. It’s art.)

Since I’m absolutely no help (obviously) we have found some ideas from people who are much better at this than I am.

I’m a sucker for that look on a kid’s face when they see their favorite Disney character at Disneyland or on stage or, yes, on ice. When they see these character favorite come to life right in front of them and you can almost feel their joy? THAT.

I’m a joy junkie.

Netflix just announced that ALL 10 seasons of FRIENDS will be available for all the watching January 1, 2015.

No really.


I think you know what this means.


All the gifs.

I can’t help myself, I’m too excited.


There’s also Brad Pitt and a hair flip. I just wanted to put this here.

For 20 years, FRIENDS has been my comfy couch and my comfort food all rolled up in to one big hug. You’re damn right I’m excited. (Also, it is so gross when I can say that something has been my favorite for 20 years. Gah.)

I just can’t even freaking wait.

Staying Healthy and Breast Cancer Awareness (plus a Vitamix giveaway!)


Several weeks ago, I really started to notice how poorly I have felt for the past year. When I actually started to pay attention, I was almost impressed with my pain tolerance. And my ability to ignore all the things. I live such a distracted life, I really wasn’t paying attention to my health and well-being. As moms, we push through and ignore a lot. There’s always someone else who needs our attention and it’s always too hard to put ourselves first.

We are not putting on our oxygen masks on, ladies.

In October, many of us take a time-out to bring awareness to breast cancer and those who are fighting against it. We talk about prevention. We talk about early detection. We celebrate all the many women who have kicked cancer’s ass. But how many of us make all the necessary checks and appointments on a regular basis? How many of us REALLY pay attention and aren’t distracted by the craziness of life?

Clearly, not me. (Although, I promise I’m working on it and doing better.)

It really is time to pay better attention, and take better care of myself. It’s time for all of us to make sure we are doing better at keeping ourselves healthy. We’re all worth it.

Saint Agnes Breast Center wants to help bring awareness to the fight against breast cancer and to help us all remember to make our appointments and our screenings! Take care of you! To promote healthy choices and healthy living, a group of us (some of my favorite bloggy ladies) are hosting a giveaway thanks to Saint Agnes.
