Meet the "Descendants" and Disney's Villains

Behind every good Disney movie, is an even better villain!   You know, the character you love to dislike.  Think Maleficent, Jafar, Cruella De Vil, The Evil Queen from Snow White.  With the release of the new Disney original movie Descendants this Friday at 8pm EST on the Disney Channel, we thought we'd spend our weekend getting (re)acquainted with Jafar from Aladdin.

"How do you do it all?"  It's a question I hear often as I'm running around from one activity to the next.  My days are filled with strenuous activity and adventure as Activities Director of a private club in the Colorado Rockies.  I am on the go from sun up to sun down most days and sometimes I'm not even sure how I get through the day with enough time to eat, sleep and repeat it all the next day.  I need a quick grab and go solution to keep my energy up, sugar down and carbs low.

It is the perfect weather for grilling- too hot to turn on the oven!  I thought I'd try an alternative to the traditional BBQ this weekend and serve all veggie foods.  This is a vegetarian lovin' BBQ right here!  Not so sure meatless can be delicious???  Come find out...

 If I've learned anything as a mom, it's that kids love eating things off of a stick.  For this backyard picnic, we discussed what we'd like to kabob.  Here's what we came up with:  Tyson® Any'Tizers®, caprese salad, fruit and s'mores.  Start-to-finish, this picnic was made just by kids, for kids.  Come check out the steps!

Sending Smiles with Hallmark Cards Starting at 47cents!

As a kid, we'd (me + my twin sister)show up to birthday parties with a present wrapped in beautiful paper with a gorgeous bow.  As the birthday girl/boy would open their gift, we'd explain, "There isn't a card...it's from us."  Even though my mom owned a gift shop and sold greeting cards, we were convinced we didn't need a card attached to the gift...a card was just an added expense.  True when you have 6 kids invited to birthday parties all of the time, and true when you watch kids toss the card to the side in .2 seconds to get to the gift.  Isn't it interesting, that as we get older, the sentiment of the card begins to hold more value than the gift?

Teaching Kids About Emotions with Disney's Inside Out and Toys "R" Us!

There has been a buzz about Disney's Inside Out since the first glimpse of a preview we watched on TV months ago.  A resounding "I can't wait to see that!" was blurted from each of our mouths.  You see...I am involved in a program at our local schools bringing mindfulness, movement and relaxation to kids of all ages.  I volunteered for the youngest kiddos (kinders and 1st graders) at my daughter's elementary school this year.  As soon as I heard about the program, I knew I wanted to get involved!  Three woman I most admire in our community created the program and the parents have shown their full support and appreciation.

Celebrating the Man who Set the Course - Nautica Voyage

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #NauticaforDad #CollectiveBias
I always tell people that I've been blessed with kids who are perfect for me.  They are athletic, artistic, and adventurous.  Likewise, I have been blessed with parents who are perfect for me.  My father- grandfather to 20- taught each of his 6 kids the value of hard work and the importance of strong family values.  As a single mom, my dad is the greatest and most consistent male role model in my kids' lives.  He spends time with all of his grandchildren, but we are the fortunate ones to live only a mile down the road.  People around town always ask me if I am his daughter- which is always followed up with a compliment about my dad, his integrity and his character.

Road Trip Ready with Pennzoil Summer Rollback

Is your car ready for a road trip?  Better yet, an off-road trip?  I knew I was pushing it with the time/mileage between oil changes. There aren't many oil change options where I live and my schedule was not aligning with oil change hours.  My SUV was way over due.
