Showing our #DisneySide

A couple months ago, I found out I was selected to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration, and we decided to make it a brunch play date while I was off from work.  In this house, we really enjoy any excuse to show off our Disney love, so we had a great time decorating (the decorations are still up now with no plans to take them down), planning snacks, and sharing some Disney fun with our friends!

Thanks so much to Disney, American Tourister, HPOcean Spray and most of all Maria Bailey and the BSM Media team for providing the opportunity, products and support that made my Disney Side @Home Celebration so much fun!

It's True

... we're having a baby!

pregnancy announcement
(We got the idea for the announcement from this pin.)

And now for the frequently asked questions:

1. Due date?
July 21!

2. Are the boys excited?
Yes! We haven't heard a single negative comment (so far).  O moved into JD's room, and we're calling his old room "the baby room".  He is loving it.  He also thinks it is going to be a boy AND a girl, so there may be some disappointment ahead.

3. Do you know what you're having?
No. We're hopefully not going to find out until D day.  However, I do feel wider and more exhausted than last time.  But it's my third, and I'm older, and I'm working full time....

4. Names?
We're pretty set on them, but I'm not going to share them here.  O is determined to call the baby "Gem", so that's the nickname for now.

So it's safe to say that there are some (more) big changes ahead as I navigate being a working mom of three. I welcome any and all tips!!

O Turned Three (a couple months ago)

I was recently chosen to host a Disney Side @Home Celebration, so that's really kicked my butt to post more of our #DisneySide here on the blog.

Back in October, O turned THREE (3!!! I assure you my baby turning three did not pass without shock and some tears), and we celebrated with a Mickey Halloween party.

Disney Store Costume Party
Party day started with an early morning costume party at the Disney Store!
Come Inside It's Fun Inside
There are so many Mickey Mouse Clubhouse sayings that were easy to incorporate into the party. (The other side of this sign read "See ya real soon!" for people on their way out.)
Disney Pumpkins
I bought Target out of every Disney pumpkin kit they had. We also used a big pumpkin with tiny pumpkin ears to make Mickeys.
Halloween Mickey Party Hats
Orange Mickey party hats from Henson Creations and sign from Pamela Renee Designs
Mickey Bats
I got the template for these Mickey bats at Spoonful.com & spent every waking moment cutting them out to use around the house and yard.

We had a pumpkin painting station.
Mickey Pinata
And a Mickey pinata of course.
Hot Diggity Dog Station
We rented an awesome hot dog cart & served up Hot Diggity Dogs with every fixin we could think of.

Mickey cupcakes with orange frosting and big & mini Oreos
Chocolate dipped orange rice krispie treats 
 We all had a great time celebrating and showing our Disney Sides!

Mickey Trick-or-Treat bag favors were a hit.

Sooooo many cool Mickey gifts.

The party was so much fun that JD is asking for a Mickey party for his next birthday too.  The Mickey cutout is still in our living room, and I don't see it leaving any time soon.  We are so excited to host our Disney Side @Home Celebration, so stay posted for even more Disney on the blog!
