Favorite Disney CDs for Road Trips + Giveaway

The Easter bunny came early to the Parker house and, as you can tell from Lily’s picture, the kids were pretty excited. When a lovely little package from Walt Disney Records arrived on my door step last week, I knew the four latest CDs from Disney Music Emporium would be the first thing I packed for our road trip. Thus these CDs became the first early addition to our Easter baskets!

Growing up, I have so many memories of listening to Disney cassettes in the car with my family on road trips. Love that I now have Into the Woods, FrozenGuardians of the Galaxy, and Disney Junior DJ Shuffle 2 for our collection! Get your family read to hop into spring with these fun collections! Check out our favorites and be sure to enter to win all four below.

Tara’s Favorite

Into the Woods Cast CD and Poster

I’ve been ever so patiently waiting for this musical to come out on DVD (March 24 – it’s out NOW!) so Into the Woods was my clear favorite of the four CDs. Perfect to listen to while I waited for the movie to come out!  Musicals have had a special place in my heart since my high school drama days. The story telling, the orchestra, the unforgettable lyrics and performances – I love them all. I’ll admit to you that I’ve had Meryl Streep’s voice in my head singing “Greens, greens, nothing but greens” every morning as I’ve made my green smoothie this week.

John’s Favorite

Music from Guardians of the Galaxy

This ultimate mix tape CD from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy made it to the top of my husband’s list. Personally loved the cover and the role the mix played in the movie as a gift from the main character’s mother on her death bed. Songs that got the thumbs up from the Parkers included Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede, I Want You Back by Jackson 5, and Come and Get Your Love by Redbone. So many memorable hits! My children begged to listen to Hooked on a Feeling on repeat during our road trip and I happily obliged.

7 year old Lily’s Favorite

Frozen Sound Track by Disney

Pretty safe to say that most little girls would be THRILLED to find a Frozen DVD and soundtrack in their Easter basket. This CD was the first Lily requested (aka begged) to listen to in the car. Frozen had the most sing alongs and we may have belted Let it Go and Do You Wanna Build a Snow Man? a time or two. Adore the vocal talents of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, and Santino Fontana. My new favorite is the quirky Fixer Upper – there are some great one liners in there!

5 year old Cort’s and 3 year old Kyler’s Favorite

Disney Junior Shuffle

My little boys thought that the Disney Junior DJ Shuffle 2 was fun, fun, fun, fun! Everyone in the car couldn’t help but sing along with that line from the first song. This collection of songs from all their favorite Disney Junior shows was definitely a crowd pleaser with the littles. Two by Two and Believe in Your Dreams from Sofia the First were most often requested by Lily for repeats on this CD. The boys giggled every time during the Captain Hook Destroy the Book song from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Definitely a fun CD for your collection and a great listen for the car.

Win the latest Disney Soundtracks

All four CDs can be found at Disney Music Emporium. I am excited to be teaming up with Disney music group and  giving one lucky reader all four of these CDs. Cross your fingers and enter to win below!

A Day in the Life of a Fashion Blogger

A Day in the Life of a Fashion Blogger

This last niche of bloggers are some of my favorite to follow on instagram. From the runways of New York Fashion Week to the styles in your hometown, fashion bloggers are the ones to follow for the latest in beauty and style. Today I am sharing with you a few that I follow and a sneak peek into their days as bloggers.

A Day in the Life of a Beauty Blogger

1. I was lucky enough to have this first blogger move right up the street from me in my old neighborhood. We’ve both since moved, but I can tell you that. Abby of Twist Me Pretty is just as fun and fabulous in real life as she is online. As a Project Runway fan, I loved following her time with Tresemme at New York Fashion Week last year. Check these posts to get your own sneak peek behind the scenes at Bryant Park. Besides being a beauty blogger, Abby is also a mother of two – soon to be four with twin baby boys on the way. If you are looking for hair inspiration, this is one fab mama you want to be following on instagram and youtube.

2. Speaking of fabulous hairstyle bloggers, if you aren’t following Mindy of Cute Girls Hairstyles and her twin daughters, Brooklyn and Bailey, you are missing out! I am on their youtube channel and web site several times a week looking for new hairstyles for my daughter Lily. Find out what time Mindy wakes up at to get it all done and take look at a day in her life in this video. If you are looking for a safe and entertaining youtube channel for your teens and tweens to follow, follow this link to Brooklyn and Bailey. Check out their morning and evening routines as well as a tour of the studio room they share with their mom in the videos above and below.

3. I recently discovered Jackie of Something About That and I love this sneak peek into her life! I am crushing on several of the shoes in her spring Shoe Love post and I am slightly jealous of her hand-lettering skills in this post. Find out how she squeezes in blogging around a full-time job here.

4. Last but not least, Michelle from AllLaqueredUp.com is the go-to girl in the industry for everything nail related. She has been named one of the Best of the Web by Instyle and voted Favorite Nail Blog by Marie Claire. Take a peek at her Beauty Diary and see what products she uses and loves in a typical day. This behind the scenes look at her experience creating FingerPaints with Sally Beauty is a great read as well.

I could spend all day being inspired by these ladies in the fashion industry. I hope you’ve enjoyed a look at their days. For more behind the scenes posts, these out.

A Day in the Life of a Lifestyle Blogger

Only a few days left of this series. I’ve learned so much from peeking into a day in the life of a blogger this past week. Do you know one of my favorite fun facts from this series? Several bloggers have their water-proof smart phones with them in the shower- now that’s a way to multi task! I’ve listened to podcasts in the shower before, but haven’t scrolled through my instagram feed yet.

I love that everyone finds routines and tips and tricks that work for them and their busy lives. Today we are looking behind the scenes at lifestyle bloggers. Excited to introduce you to these lovely ladies!

A Day in the Life of a Blogger

1. Our first blogger is Patti from A Side of Moxie. The moment she described herself as a “an explorer who is continually one step away from getting sucked into another adventure,” I knew that I would love her blog.

Her passion for sharing stories is evident in both of the series on her blog – Every Mother Counts and Participate in Your Life. This morning some tears escaped as I read her first birth story and I cheered when I read that she hired a doula for her second birth. I’ve been there with the rolling veins that nurses can’t find and the helplessness. Writing my own birth story was cathartic and I hope it was for her, too! Visit her and check out where her favorite space is to do creative work!

2. Audra from Reality to Dreams is my fellow Disney mom. As you can tell from these posts, this mama loves Disney just as me! At Build your Blog Conference, I was able to sit down and have lunch with Audra and her five year old son Simon, who is also a blogger. Blogging is a family affair at the Reality to Dreams house and that is ever so evident in this sneak peek into their life. Her post reminded me of why I blog and why I love to do it with my family. Be sure to stop by Audra’s blog to find out what five things help her power through her day.

3. Meet Katrina of Thinking Outside The Sandbox. Along with her fellow blogger Catherine, Katrina runs a site and a team of authors to help with all the business sides of blogging. If there is an e-book that will help build your blog, these ladies are going to share it with you. Her perspective as a mom who works full times + plus blogs is an excellent read. Find out what she listens to in her car to maximize her time.

Those are our lovely lifestyle bloggers! Be sure to check out the incredible bloggers in the other niches as well!

Are you ready for the good stuff? I hope you are enjoying the sneak peeks into a Day in the Life of a Blogger. Today I am sharing posts from a few of my favorite bloggers, who also happen to be frugal bloggers.

A Day in the Life of Money Saving Mom

1. Crystal from Money Saving Mom is possibly the very first blogger I started following. My initial visit was for her grocery store deals, but I was quickly drawn in by her family and goal-setting posts. If I could choose someone as a motherhood and blogger mentor – she would be high on my list!

Each week Crystal sets 10 doable goals and invites others to link up and do the same. See the goals and follow ups here. I could easily spend hours on her site and all her informative series from 52 Ways to Save $100 a Year to 15 Favorite Children’s Read Alouds- check out the complete list here.

Crystal regularly does A Day in the Life posts and you can see them all here. Happy reading – come back and let me know which ones were your favorite!

2. This next blogger is a girl to keep tabs on because she is going places! Every time I open an e-mail from Jordan of FunCheaporFree, she is on a new adventure to make frugral fabulous. Trust me, she is worth the subscribe. She’s been featured on TLC’s Extreme Cheapskates (watch it live with her here) and has been interviewed by news outlets worldwide. Her youtube videos are entertaining and informative and she even recently filmed one about her daily routine. Check it out:

Jordan also has a post from a day in her life – pre two more cute kiddos. See why my children are insanely jealous of her basement and how she gets her work done here.

3. I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa from Saving Cent by Cent at the Build Your Blog Conference. She’s been featured on ABC 4 about How to Compile a 72 Hour Kit on a Budget and you can see that here. I am definitely checking that out before the great shake-out next month. I love this peek into her day as a blogger and mother of three young children. I always wonder how the mother’s of young babies do it!

When you are done checking out these fantastic and frugal ladies – take a look at the bloggers from the other niches!

Discover the Magic of Disney’s Reimagined Cinderella

Cinderella

Photo courtesy of movies.disney.com/cinderella

It’s the classic we all know and love reimagined and reintroduced as a fairy tale that will resonate across generations. Disney’s Cinderella is opening in theaters this weekend and is sure to enchant and inspire. While I was swept up in the exquisite gowns and stunning scenery, a single quote was etched into my mind after screening Cinderella earlier this week.

“Have courage and be kind.

Where there is kindness there is a goodness,

and where there is goodness there is magic.”

Variations of this phrase echo throughout the movie reminding us that good can triumph over evil. Actress Lily James (who also plays Lady Rose in Downton Abbey) brought to life a sweet, but strong Cinderella. Possibly my favorite Cinderella to date. While staying fairly true to the traditional story line with a few creative twists, Disney elects this time to portray Cinderella less as a damsel in distress and more as an active player in her own fate. The conversation Cinderella has in the village with a former servant as well as the conversation with her stepmother in the attic show us the strength and conviction that her character possesses. As a mother (and a woman), I love this and how it models having strength in our sorrow and in our struggles.

Disney's Cinderella

Lily James is accompanied by a talented cast including Cate Blanchett as the step mother, Lady Tremaine, Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, and Richard Madden as Prince Charming. The twist of Cinderella and Prince Charming initially meeting as supposed equals adds to the strength of both characters. Enjoy this sneak peek into their meeting.

The intricate details of the set design and the gorgeous setting provided the perfect backdrop for Cinderella. The movie was filmed throughout England in similar locations to Maleficent and Pirates of the Caribbean. Three-time Oscar-winning costume designer Sandy Powell is the woman behind the elaborate costumes for the film. Cinderella’s breathtaking ball gown was made from more than a dozen fine layers of fabric meant to appear as if she were floating. My favorite touch was the butterflies on the bodice as well as the shoes that paid homage to Cinderella’s relationship with her mother. Catch a peek at the gorgeous butterflies in the official trailer if you haven’t seen it yet.

My family adored the movie from my three year old on up to my husband. The antics of the mice, lizards, and goose had my five year old son giggling and my daughter was wide eyed at the ballroom scene. I’ve heard her humming “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and I’ve had to sneak that Cinderella dress into the wash while she is sleeping so she can wear it every day. The soundtrack for Cinderella is already available on Amazon.com and iTunes.

Disney's Cinderella

As an added bonus, theater goers are treated to Pixar’s brand new short film Frozen Fever. This crowd favorite had our entire auditorium laughing and wanting more. We are in luck because Disney just announced today that Frozen 2 is in the works! Here’s a quick glimpse of what you can expect from Frozen Fever.

From the enchanting backdrops to the endearing and timeless characters, you will not want to miss Cinderella and Frozen Fever this weekend. Whether it is girl’s night, time to snuggle up with a date, or the perfect excuse to take your family out, catch it in your local theaters and let me know what you think!

A Day in the Life of a Family Blogger

A Day in the Life of a Family Blogger

This is the niche of bloggers I want to sit down with a cup of hot chocolate and quiz the most. The mommy bloggers! Of course, many bloggers in other niches are also mothers and in similar situations. Where is the line drawn between blog and family or is it all jumbled together in a mutually beneficial heap of fun and hard work? As a blogger and a mother, this is the reason I started the A Day in the Life of a Blogger series. My curiosity at how a mom and a blogger juggles both roles lead me to teaming up with over 25 bloggers to give you this sneak peek.

A Day in the Life of 25 Bloggers

1. If you live in Utah, Kim of UtahValleyMoms.com, SaltLakeMoms.com, and DavisCountyMoms.com  is a person you want to follow!  She’s my go to girl for events and if there is something fun happening in Utah, I can typically find out more about it on Kim’s web-site or her facebook page.

A Day in the Life of a Local Blogger

I had a blast participating in her instagram challenge for Chalk the Block at the Riverwoods last year. Utah Valley Moms doesn’t just tell you about the events, they give you great tips, too! I’ve always been too scared of the crowds on free zoo day so I was thrilled when Kim posted a video of the crowds to her instagram. Shhh … best time to go is in the morning!

Kim is one of the first bloggers I talked to about balancing mom/blog responsibilities while we were carpooling to an event. Not only does she give you an indepth look into her day, there’s a video, too! Find out what meal of the day Kim and I feel absolutely the same about and how she keeps her social media running smoothly throughout the day here.

2. Next up is Alicia from Crazily Normal. I love her perspective as a mom, a blogger, and a nurse. I’ve been brushing up on my instagram skills with her 10 Tips for Using Instagram More Effectively. There’s no time to waste so I am always up for tips that will make me more productive! Find out more about what a day looks like for a working mom and blogger here.

Find out what camera and back drop from Staples that she uses and how the rest of her day goes here.

A Day in the Life of a Blogger - A  Lively Hope

4. This next  blogger is one of my good friends and we just so happen to be related! I am excited to introduce you to Heidi of  A Lively Hope. Heidi and I are second cousins who grew up going to family gatherings together, but lost touch a little in our teenage and young adult years. Through our blogs, we have been able to get back in touch and have been able to get together more – I love it! Heidi has so much to offer – she is a homeschooling mom of three with an etsy shop and a blog that details their adventures. Her journey with infertility, foster care, and adoption is a beautiful and inspiring read. See what a creative and family-filled day looks like for Heidi here. This is one mom I look to for modeling my families day!

6. KT from The Proverbial House says so well what so many moms and bloggers feel. We’ve got big plans, but we don’t want to miss the precious moments of childhood either. I like what she shared about her schedule – she sets certain tasks that must happen each day. I tend to do this as well – tasks to accomplish works better for me than time slots. Click on the link or picture above to read her poignant thoughts and see her day!

A day in the life of a Craft/DIY Blogger

Time to get creative! Today we are looking behind the scenes at a day in the life of a craft/DIY blogger. Three craft bloggers and three totally different days.

A Day in the Life of a Craft Blogger

1. Let’s start with Rachel from the Crafted Life. Her movie-inspired crafts are darling, be sure to pin this one with the sweetest Elf projects for Christmas! The Crafted Life’s tutorials (with beautiful pictures bytheway) make DIY fun and approachable. Forget the fancy tools and years of experience, head to this gal’s site and get started on something beautiful! Find out what time of day she gets the best pictures and what social media site drives her the most traffic to her blog in this post or by clicking the picture above.

A Day in the Life of a Craft Blogger

2. Our next blogger is Busy Being Jennifer. Her Craft Crazy Friday link-up is bursting with 100s of crafts and recipes that I’ve been scanning through for St. Patrick’s Day ideas. If you are a craft blogger, make sure the link up is on your radar. One thing I love about Jennifer’s day is that she makes a plan and she sticks to it – from going to the gym to sewing up her makeup bags for the next market. Be sure to read her nugget of wisdom at the end of the post – I happen to agree completely!

Day in the Life of a Digital Scrapbooker

3. This blogger is passionate about preserving memories and family history – something I love having just attended Roots Tech. Meet Dawn from Dawn’s Delights Art. Dawn is a genealogist and digital scrapbooker with a lot on her plate as she homeschools her children. Her shop full of digital scrapbooking clip art will help you preserve your memories, too. Take a look behind the scenes of a homeschooling, work at home, craft blogger and see how she gets it all done! 

And when you are done checking out our craft bloggers, be sure to take a look at our other bloggers as well!

A behind the scenes look at a day in the life of a travel blogger

Do you have the travel gene? Does your suitcase never quite make it back into storage before your next adventure? If so, you may identify with the travel bloggers we will meet today. Take a look at a day in the life of a travel blogger and see what you discover. From beaches and mountain vistas to skype chats and wobbly wi-fi, the story of a travel blogger fascinates me and I think it will do the same for you.

A Day in the Life of a Travel Blogger

1. Meet Jessica of Team Wiking.  She is a mama of two with exquisite photography that will have you packing your bags to go wherever she is featuring.

From a romantic rue in Paris to city guides in her home state of California, Jessica’s photo essays and writings have been featured in Apartment Therapy and Design Mom. See what a day in pictures looks like for this blogger and photographer.

2. Next up is a blogger living in my home state. The Utah adventure list for my family just doubled thanks to Michelle from A Local Wander.  From the fun of local splash pads to incredible hikes around the world, so many things from her blog have been added to my bucket list.  Michelle travels with her four children, including her adorable twins.

Find out the one word that she uses to describe their life right now and the blogging hours she shares with Camille from The Six Sisters Stuff (I talked with Camille at the Build Your Blog Conference about how she juggles blog and family. She generally works the same hours as Michelle so head on over to see what those are!)

3. This next blogger is a woman after my own heart. I’m a better early bird than a night owl and so is Jessica of Suitcases and Sippy Cups. This mom travel blogger has been featured on Disney’s Family Fun web-site and had me at 10 Ways to Entertain a Toddler in a Hotel Room. That information is gold for families traveling with children. Her weekly travel tips and worldwide travel guides will convince you that travel with children is completely doable.
