Word Of The Week

It has to be adventure as we had a great weekend, nipping to London for a last-minute trip to see a movie and getting to spend time with my mum, dad and brother, and preparing for our big holiday adventure it is all so exciting and hopefully we will make some fantastic memories along the way.  This photo is not the clearest but I just love it so thought I would share it anyway.

Jacks Dream Teen Disney Itinerary

Last week I shared Joe’s dream tween itinerary, this week I am sharing Jacks  dream teen Disney itinerary. One thing I have learnt from this exercise is how different both of our boys are. Their itineraries and choices were just poles apart.

Joe likes more action, stunt shows and water rides whereas Jack? The faster and wilder the ride the better. When I think back to when Jack was younger he was not into fast rides at all, then one day the thrill seeker in him developed and now his mission is to ride all the wildest roller coasters.

My Captured Moment, Meeting Friends

I love this photo, it was taken on Saturday when we got the chance to meet up with one of my best friends. We both had plans but were 10 mins away from each other in London so both made a quick Dash to meet up together. Donna and I have been friends for 20 years and do try to get together as much as we can, we are godparents to each others children and our boys get on so well.

The Preview of Disney Pixar, Inside Out with SUBWAY®

On Saturday we got to see the new Disney Pixar Film Inside Out, the event was arranged by subway to celebrate their new Inside Out kids pack that comes in a cool messenger bag.

The event was a friendly affair with balloon modelling and face painting to entertain the younger children and a tasty SUBWAY® lunch for all. Inside Out is about 11-year-old Miley and tracks her journey moving away from her hometown and almost everything she knows and loves in life.  The focus of the film flips between life and headquarters other wise know as the brain. It cleverly portrays the emotions of Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust as little people who run headquarters thus controlling Miley’s emotional outlook.

Stress Free Business Cards With StressFreePrint

Business cards are such an essential item, something you should never visit an event without. When I started out I made my cards online cheaply, I designed them all myself and was quite pleased with them, but honestly? They were not the best quality, they were fine but just not professional enough.

When I got the opportunity to work with StressFreePrint  I jumped at the chance and honestly they do exactly what it says on the tin. The service is just incredible, I went for the design service, I was able to choose my design, send off my art work and social media info to be included on the card.

My Weekly Round Up and Adventure

Wooohooo 6 days till our big adventure, we are all so excited. I must say I have sat down several times to schedule posts for when we are away but it just didn’t feel right, my blog is a reflection of us and our lives. So I have decided that I am turning my blog into a diary for the duration of our hols.

AdventureWe have been so excited and I want to savor every moment, so every day I am going to post a memory. Only a short one but the little things that if not recorded I may forget. I have so many post ideas for when I am home but it’s the little things I just don’t want to forget.

Yes, I am conscious that we are on holiday so will not be spending lots of time blogging; this will be my holiday diary for us to look back on and smile.

Joe’s Dream Disney Tween Itinerary

We only have a week left to go until we visit Walt Disney World, arghh we are all so excited. Our restaurants and FastPasses are booked, and we are almost packed. I can’t believe it is nearly here.

This will be the first time that we visit where both the boys are big enough for most of the rides, although they both have completely different Dream Disney itineraries for our stay. When we were planning our trip I asked them both to decide what their priorities were? Which rides they really wanted to go on? Did they have a restaurant wish list? And if they could only choose 3 FastPasses for the entire holiday what would they be?

I am going to share Joe’s wish list today and Jacks next week, but they came up with quite different wish lists and priorities. I love the fact that Disney is so great for all ages it has a different appeal for different age groups. Continue reading →
