Disney Bounding- Sadness

sadnesssmiles

Smile Pretties! It is Friday and I am feeling fabulous and wish you love and happiness for your weekend adventures!  If you are in the Orlando area you may want to find Adventure at Disney Springs for the Road to the Races tour where you can see Lightning McQueen and other Cars 3 stars.  This event is scheduled through Sunday.  Don’t worry if you are not able to attend you can still enjoy the event!!! I will go live on my Instagram this weekend while attending the event found on the Marketplace side.  If you are following me on Instagram  you will receive a notification when I go live and if you are not following me @forkandspoonley you really should hit that follow button.  I will try to do more live feeds from the parks and when we are out and about as much as I can.  If you would like more information about the Road to the Races tour you can find it here:  Cars3tour.  The tour is kicking off here in Orlando and making it’s way around the USA!

So, today I wanted to share with you a Disney Bounding look I put together for one of my favorite characters from Pixar’s movie INSIDE OUT.  There is just so much to love about her.   I just want to hug her and turn her blue into a new hue.  SADNESS!

So here I am with @JulietTheFirst as “Joy and Sadness” as we took over headquarters.  This was truly an emotional day.

Disney Bounding is tons of fun and acquires a lot of attention from cast members, characters, and other guests.  Overall it adds to the magic of the day!  So to complete this look you will need a blue wig, large-black circle glasses, blue dress with Peter Pan collar, nude colored flats, and blue lace peek a boo socks.

You can find the wig and dress on Amazon.  To keep within the Disney Guidlines for dressing up in the park I chose to wear the dress vs the sweater and pants look that Sadness rocks so well.  Simply because the wig and glasses really made the look.

 

Do you Disney Bound?  Share your Dressed in Disney looks below!!!  I would love some new inspiration.  Also, if you would like to see me Disney Bound as a specific character around the parks post your suggestion in the comments.

The Great Carp Escape and a giveaway!

unnamedThe Great Carp Escape is a beautiful children’s story with a deep message reminding us just how deep God’s love is for us and all living creatures.  Written by Irish Beth Maddock and based on a true story the illustrator transports the readers  to a small beach front in Canada with allegorical images of geese, weeping willow, evergreen, waves, and carp!  Your child will enjoy reading of the adventures of this dynamic sibling pair and the habits of the ocean life found along the shoreline.  Swimming, snorkling, and even clam fishing; the story quickly develops into a lifelong lesson that  Beth, Paul  (the siblings), and your own child will never forget as the children take a walk with dad.  Stumbling upon what has been defined as the ugliest fish ever seen (the carp) by Beth, their dad explains  that beauty is more then skin deep.  Our creator loves each and everyone of us and designed us with love; including the CARP.  “God thinks this fish is wonderful!”  Smiling, he added, “God thinks you’re wonderful too!”   This is my ultimate favorite line in the book.  There is so much relief in this single line, to know that above everything else that my creator thinks I am wonderful!  ” That means I am wonderfully made!” my almost teenage daughter exclaimed as I read that line aloud.  This brought a huge smile to her face and joy to her heart.  As a teenager this is a big message to receive, when everything around you seems so awkward and out of place and you question your sole purpose for belonging.  We too can find the beauty not just in this strange fish with spiny fins and large scales but every living creature if only we look through our Father’s eyes.

This is sure to be a family favorite and  will change how ya’ll view the world around you!

The Plans I Have For You- a book review

plansLove this book!  This story is written as if God is speaking directly to your child.  Throughout the story your child is reminded that they were born with a purpose and a very important job to do.  The fun part is discovering God’s special plans for you.   My children enjoyed the illustrations and identifying the many different things they can do when they are older.  This a great book for children ages 4-8and is filled with lyrical fun.  This book is a great read for moms and dads as well, as it acts as a reminder of how personal and special God’s recipe for our lives truly is.

Jeremiah 29:11. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
