Disney/Pixar’s latest movie, Finding Dory
, was released into theaters last Friday. Our family was able to check out this new movie on Saturday, and I really wanted to write this review ASAP for all of you to read, but I’m glad I waited a few days to let my thoughts simmer. That’s not to say they were bad thoughts, but, in hindsight, I’ve gained a little more perspective on the film than I initially had, so I think you’ll be glad I waited.

Summer is in full swing in our neck of the woods, and, already, the resounding chorus of “I’m bored!
” has begun to echo through the halls. Yes, we do have a vacation and some other summer activities planned, but, for the most part, we’re just going to wing it. It’s my last chance to be home with my girls for more than a few hours a day, and I don’t want to get too overwhelmed running them here and there for all the camps and all the activities (we’ll have enough of that come August, I’m sure).

I’ve written here before about how fashion and Disney

term. What exactly does it mean to “Disneybound” you ask? Well, Disneybounding is creating looks, outside of cosplay and costuming, with your own wardrobe (or something you thrifted or bought) to create a look that represents your favorite Disney character. This idea was created a few years ago by a creative, funky soul named Leslie Kay.[more ...]
On our family’s recent vacation to Walt Disney World, we were delighted to have chosen the “right” day to visit Epcot. We unintentionally chose to visit on the last day of our vacation, and lo and behold it was “Speak Like a Whale Day!”
I was in high school when the “Finding Nemo” was released in the theaters, but that didn’t stop me from going to see it with my friends. 13 years later, I’m going to get to take my kids on a new journey with me to find Dory and her family.[more ...]
Do you have plans to travel with your family this year? Obviously we are the get up and go types, and, while we’ve mostly traveled domestically, it is always important to us to be able to connect with our friends and loved ones at home while we are away. If you’ll be traveling internationally this year, you’re probably wondering how to connect back home without facing a ton
of international charges upon your return.
