Showing off my #DisneySide

Recently I received an email stating that I was chosen to be a #DisneySide hostess. Well let me tell you that was the thrill of my day. Anxiously I stalked the message boards for word of shipping dates. And of course when the dates were released a freak cold hit the country. It seemed everyone was having delivery issues. Not me I thought. I live in good ole south Louisiana! HAHA! We were part of that storm. We had snaux! (snow) Not like what everyone else had but a shock to our system. Luckily my package was only delayed two days. And then…..IT ARRIVED! I was so EXCITED! What ever could I get????

I tore into the box….only restraining myself to take a picture of the outside. I peeked inside and Ooooooohhhh!

SOOOO MANY GOODIES!

Well now I have to plan my party! Mardi Gras vacation seemed like the perfect time. It happens to be a week when a lot of people from the New Orleans area happen to travel to Disney anyway. So this was a perfect week for those of us that weren’t going this year. I invited some of my mommy friends and their kids and got to setting up.

My youngest was so excited not only to have her friends over but to dig into the goodies.

The kiddos had a blast. It had rained the day before so we were stuck inside but the kids still had fun. I think the T-shirts were the HIT of the crowd.

They even enjoyed a bit of coloring some Frozen coloring sheets I found online.

Summertime in the South

In the South summertime means many things: tans, going on the river with friends and family, crawfish boils and of course allergies. Yes, all that sunshine means our grass grows exceptionally fast so that means nearly everyday someone in the neighborhood is cutting the grass. And how lucky am I that one of the 101 things I am allergic to is grass. (For the record I am also allergic to hay, pollen, cats, dogs, long haired animals, oak, pine and dairy products) When my alergies flare up my new weapon of choice is Claritin.

Claritin is a 24 hour pill that combats my allergy symptoms. For me those include itchy face and eyes, sneezing, runny nose and generally a bad mood. My eyes also swell shut sometimes. Claritin knocks all of that out of my system and leaves this mommy a non drowsey non itchy happy camper.

Have you tried Claritin?

Review: Ghirardelli Squares Milk Chocolate with Truffle


Oh my yumm..these are so good. I was recently given the opportunity to try and review Ghiradelli Chocolate squares. Chocolate? Free chocolate? Why yes….sign me up. Those of you that know me know that I believe chocolate, especially good chocolate, should have its very own place on the food pyramid. So, when the mail man delivered this box of goodies I tore right in. No, I did not share with my children….this is research…all don in the name of science mind you. Inside the bag are these little individually wrapped squares of chocolaty goodness. They were creamy and melted in my mouth. I can not wait to get more. And the good new is these little things are not hard to find. They are available at Target, Walmart, and Walgreens and are only around $4 a 4.63 oz bag. Affordable luxury. I hope if you try them you’ll post your opinions below.
