Is the Bbbidi Bbbidi Butique worth the money?

I have wanted to give my daughter the princess makeover in the castle at Disney for a real long time. Now that she was turning 6-years-old we figured it would be the absolute perfect age to do it.

They call it the Bibbidi Bobbidi Butique and you can either do it in cinderella’s castle or downtown Disney in Florida. The whole package cost about $200. you can get packages for less but after visiting the Disney Store and pricing their i figured it would cost about the same to just let her pick her outfit while we were at the park. So after being nervous about whether or not it was worth the money, we made it to Disney and her birthday was the big day to surprise her with the boutique. Continue reading

Is the Disney Hopper Pass worth it?

We took our kids to Disney World in April and we bought a 5-day hopper pass for each one of us. The nice thing about Disney is that once you hit day 3 the prices for each day drop a ton. I think we paid around $7 or $8 for each additional day after day 3. The thing that I have to wonder is if the added hopper option was worth it. I think it was for the last day but a waste of money for the first 4. Continue reading

Taking the pacifier away from my 2-year-old

My son was the king of sleepless nights until he was two-and-a-half years old.

For the longest time we could not figure out what was keeping him awake and then it took 2-days and BAM sleep! The funny thing, well funny now, is what we had to do to get him to sleep. Ya it was easy, wish we would have thought of it a lot sooner!  It was Continue reading

Grey’s in the eyebrows…reallly?

It is one thing to get grey hair but it is quite another when those grey hairs start sneaking up everywhere. I am a hair plucker. I get them on my face and neck and it seems the older I get, the more I am plucking out.

Now the grey has seeped into my eyebrows. May not seem like a big deal but I have tried to die them and they don’t die as well as the hair on my head do. it only lasts about a week and those nasty straw like greys are sticking out of my eyebrows…yuck! See how thin my eyebrows are on the ends? Continue reading

Flower Boquet Cake

I know this is my second day in a row for cakes, but here you go anyway!

I wanted to make both my kids birthday cakes. My step-daughter and my oldest daughter are only a week apart in birthdays so we did a family party together as we were heading to Disney World a week later. The friend parties would be when we got back.

I watched DC cupcakes on NetFlix and saw a beautiful bouquet cake they made out of cupcakes. I decided to do two of these, one for each of them. It really wasn’t too hard. Continue reading

Princess Castle Cake

If you have been following my blog for awhile you already know that I have been teaching myself how to do cakes for the past 2-years. Cakes are a lot of money to fork out on birthdays and other occasions and I knew I could figure it out. They are time consuming, and you have to have lot’s of patience to do them, but if you can grasp those two things then you can definitely make cakes on your own.

My daughter wanted a princess party. I wanted to make a princess cake. Since we surprised her with Disney World for her birthday, the theme was perfect.

I found a castle topper on Amazon Disney Princess Castle Cake Topper and it was under $20 so I ordered it. Love prime shipping because I got it within 2 days!

Now it was time to design my own cake! Continue reading
