Disney Frozen Beauty Collection {Review} | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

I was sent complimentary samples of this product to review for my blog.  
No further compensation was received and all opinions expressed are my own.

Earlier this month, I shared about the exciting Disney Frozen Beauty Collection from Walgreens.  After I shared the information with you, I was sent my own collection to try and review on my blog.  I was excited.  My 6 year old son was mortified that I had Elsa makeup (He claims to dislike Elsa and Frozen, but deep down he loves it! ;) )  My 2 year old squealed and wanted to put on "the lips," then cried when I wouldn't let him!
 After trying these products for myself, I had several thoughts.

Disney Wonder Forge Games for Easter {Review} | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

I received free products from Wonder Forge in order to review for my blog. 
The opinions expressed here are my own.

Recently we were sent two awesome games from Wonder Forge for review.  The games we chose were Disney Frozen Matching Game and Marvel Dominoes Game.  I thought the Frozen game would interest my 2 year old more, but I think my 6 year old liked it more... even though he lost to his 2 year old brother!

#DisneySide @ Home Celebration Decorations | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

I received free products in order to host a Disney Side @ Home Celebration. 
The opinions expressed here are my own.

This year's #DisneySide @ Home Celebration kit included everything I needed to decorate for our party. I decided from the beginning not to stress over this party or spend too much money out of pocket. I stuck with the theme found in my kit, which was Mickey and friends. Above you can see the invitations included in the kit. All I had to do was fill them out and give them to friends and family.
Also included were Mickey Mouse Swirl Decorations. These were in last year's kit too, so I used what I had saved from 2014!

#DisneySide @ Home Celebration Food | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

I received free products in order to host a Disney Side @ Home Celebration.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

Food.  All of my parties and get togethers revolve around food and my #DisneySide party was no exception!  This year, we kept our party simple.  We used everything in our box and added a few things from past parties.  The one thing we did add was food.

One of my favorite parts of the party kit was the Duff Tie-Dye cake mix.  At first, I was completely intimidated by this product!  The box looked so beautiful and the instructions seemed too difficult for me, but I decided to give it a shot anyway.  Below is the documentation that I really did do it! :)

#DisneySide @ Home Celebration | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

I received free products in order to host a Disney Side @ Home Celebration.  The opinions expressed here are my own.

I think it's been one of the craziest months ever.  Between 10 inches of snow, sickness, computer issues, an inch of ice, school closings, travel and a wedding, I'm happy to bring to you our #DisneySide party!!

In January, I shared with you the amazing box of goodies I was sent to help with our #DisneySide party.  After looking through this box, we decided to use everything that was in the box.  Last year, we had a Magic Kingdom themed party and added so much to what was given to us.  All of our food and activities centered around our favorite park.  This year, our box was so complete, all we added was the food.  We used all the supplies from our box and used old supplies we already had from previous parties.

Disney Wordless Wednesday Tangled Garden | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

One of my favorite Gardens in Magic Kingdom is the Tangled Restrooms Garden!  There are 10 Pascal figures hiding around the garden, in the flowers and near the buildings.  I won't give away too many of them, but here are few of my favorites!

Wear A Happy Thought {Review} | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

The past several weeks have been crazy in our house.  Between the insane weather in North Alabama (10 inches of snow, 70 degrees, and an inch of ice all in one week), intense work hours for me and my husband, three sons and everything in between, there hasn't been much time for blogging. In times like this I need happy thoughts.  Disney always does this for me.  "Wear A Happy Thought" helps me even more!

Wear a Happy Thought is a great t-shirt business my friends in south Alabama created.  You can read their story here. It's perfect! Really, read it!  They have the cutest, most creative t-shirts.  It's a great way to show your DisneySide by being very subtle.  

Recently, my friend Emily, who started WAHT, sent me a little happy in the mail.  I was so surprised to find my own "Wear a Happy Thought" t-shirt!  It was perfect.  The "Zip a Dee Doo Dah" shirt was a great fit, the best color and the perfect phrase.  My favorite part is the blue bird on my shoulder! :)  The shirt is a soft cotton and being fitted, it makes it a bit more feminine and "dressy" than a traditional t-shirt. (Yes, I count t-shirts as being dressy!)  
You can find Wear A Happy Thought on the web on Instagram. Keep checking back with them to see when you can order your own t-shirt.  I promise it'll be the perfect shirt to wear to Disney Parks or around your hometown!  You can even wear it when you need to be "dressy!" For questions you can contact Emily!
