Merida’s Induction Into the Disney Princess Royal Court at DisneyWorld {Video}

Merida's Royal Celebration

Merida was welcomed on stage by the entire Disney Princess court and was crowned by her mother, Queen Elinor, in a touching moment of love and respect that highlighted the unbreakable bond between mother and daughter. And we were there!

That was just the beginnging of another magical day here in Florida… Check out our Story from today!

Fun with Julia at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Do you sometimes wonder what to do with all of those photos and videos on your iPhone? Well, wonder no more. Disney has just launched a brand new app that will compose your memories in to a beautiful story. Disney’s Story app is free! I’m already addicted!!

Full disclosure: I was not compensated in any way for the publication of this post. I happened to see the app advertised on a Disney bus on the way to Hollywood Studios today, and I just had to check it out.

A Grand Welcome

I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been away for a bit. At least I hope you’ve noticed. Well, last Thursday began a fabulously long weekend of learning, growing, and playing in none other than magical Disney World during the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.

Most of the weekend’s festivities took place at the breathtaking Grand Floridian, where we were welcomed on that first day as esteemed guests.

More to come as I share the highlights from my time away. Stay tuned!

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration

I am still recovering from a magical time in sunny freezing-cold Florida at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, aka #DisneySMMoms… Home with my kiddos has never been so sweet!

Being one of the small percentage of moms attending the conference sans family (not by choice, mind you… I wish we could have afforded for all eight of us to spend a week at Disney World together), I was able to enjoy some fun girl-time with some of my fellow solo mom friends – Tara, Sue, Audrey, and so many more.

Plenty can be said about this fabulous conference/celebration, and I will get to all of that, but for now I hope you’ll enjoy a glimpse into my play time.

Disney Moms


I always regret not taking more pictures while with my friends at events like this… For more, check out the Disney Social Media Moms Flickr stream, a picture of two of my closest friends and me, and one of some lucky moms with Chris Brogan. Can you see Alyssa and Colin peeking from behind in that last one? Miss you already, girls!
