I am SO excited to attend Disney on Ice: Worlds of Fantasy this Saturday with my family!! My boys have been long-time Disney fans, and around the holiday season this is just icing on the cake!! I have been keeping it a secret, and can't wait to tell them!! Not to mention, I am bursting at the scenes to experience the 'magic' of Disney myself. I have never been to Disney world, and I would imagine this would come pretty close (well close enough) to witnessing first hand, what Disney has to offer.
Here is the event description: Thrill to high speed stunts as Lightning McQueen, Mater and the crew of Disney/Pixar's Cars race across the ice. Dive into the Little Mermaid's enchanting undersea kingdom and enter the mystical world of Pixie Hollow with Tinker Bell and the Disney Fairies as they reveal the magic that lies within. The toys are back in town with heroic action when Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Jessie and the Toy Story gang escape from the rambunctious tots of Sunnyside Daycare and race for home, in their most daring adventure ever. Come experience a magical Disney fantasy on ice at Rogers Centre! Rev up for non-stop fun with four of your favorite Disney Stories as Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy.

I was recently invited to the Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket, Ontario Disney Store Grand Opening! Who wouldn't be thrilled with attending an event thrown by Disney? Let me start off by staying this was truly a magical experience!
"Disney Store’s new design aims to deliver “the best 30 minutes of a child’s day” through immersive experiences, including a Disney Princess castle with magic mirror, translucent magical trees,Disney∙Pixar CARS neighborhood, and the Disney Store Theatre, featuring the latest in Disney entertainment."
From the moment you walk in, you are greeted with organized pockets of magical spaces, just waiting to be discovered. I have always been a fan of the Disney Store in general....but this, this is something special. The princess castle is amazing, a life size castle with an interactive 'magic mirror' will keep tiny princesses motivated and wondering if magic really does exist!
Everywhere you turn there is a portal to a new little story that is just waiting to be discovered! From tiny tunnels that lead to a new area, to simple walkways paved for imaginative journeys. My favourite part of the store is the Disney Store Theatre. A great place to keep the children occupied while parents shop! No matter what your favourite Disney Character is you will find it here living among a community of friends.
To celebrate Disney-Pixar’s Brave this summer, the Newmarket Disney Store will offer guests a wide assortment of Brave product for fans of all ages, including toys, plush, apparel, costumes, stationary and more. From June 30th – July 1st, the Upper Canada Mall location will host a free Brave event.

Being Canadian is something I have always been proud of. Whenever I have travelled to other countries I have always been well-received by various locals simply because I am Canadian--that I am proud of! Being Canadian means freedom, security, and unity to me. Canada is a place of great possibilities, cultural heritage and a boiling pot full of multiculturalism that cannot compare to any other unity I have ever seen.

When I was 16 I took on a job at my local Mc Donald's and it was the experience of a lifetime.
I know, its hard to believe that a fast-food joint could ever make an impact on a teenagers teen years, but it did. Working there was about experience, attitude and determination. Mc Donalds really makes sure their employees feel secure, comfortable, involved in charity and education. The main thing I remember about my experience there was the constant coming together for group meetings and huddles focused on improvement and charity work. I really felt like I was part of a family. Mc Donalds takes care of their staff as well as the organizations they create and follow. After, 4 long years spent learning and engaging in Mc Happy Day, I can sincerely say that this is a day of celebration and charity for a great purpose.
Mc Happy day is a day whereby all Mc Donald's chain stores donate $1 from every Big Mac Sandwich, Happy Meal and hot Mc Cafe Beverage to local children's charities such as Ronald Mc Donald House. As a parent today, I could't think of any better way than to spend a day of fun, activities (varies by location) and purpose.
...and indulge in a bit of 'yumminess' while you're at it ;) See you there!Did you know?
McDonald’s Canada covers all of RMHC Canada’s
administrative and operating costs, making it possible for 100 per cent of every directly donated dollar to go to Ronald McDonald Houses and their programs. For more information on RMHC Canada, visit: www.rmhc.ca
In addition to supporting McHappy Day in-restaurant and online, Canadians can also show their support by texting MCHAPPY
to make a $5 donation** to RMHC.For more information:

I am so thrilled to be a part of The Ultimate Blog Party this year! A place where a bunch of bloggers come together to support each other and bring you the very best PARTY! This is a place where bloggers and blogs can join together to learn, communicate and support one another without a time restriction! Just plain, FUN!!
Bloggers from all over will be partying it up until April 20th online through various niches and platforms. It is incredibly important to me to be part of this wonderful celebration because it certifies the reason I love blogging. Engagement, ideas and FUN are all part of this community, and The Ultimate Blog Party makes all this a reality.
Excited to meet new people and participate further in this campaign for years to come.
Here's a brief about me:
I am a mommy to two wonderfully busy boys I like to call 'Cookie' and 'Neigh'., Cookie just turned 5 and is a bundle (to say the least) of energy and intrigue, and little Neigh is 3, when he is alone he is the quietest child alive! --together they make my loving chaos!! Thankfully have my hubby who keeps me calm, cool and collective (most of the time) while he is home, which is never! Hubby works most of the day but we get to snuggle him on his days off and take advantage every time we can.
I started blogging last year for fun. Little did I know that this would take me to meet and enjoy the company of so many friends online!! When I am not blogging (hardly ever) I am cleaning, cooking, running around and enjoying every second of being a mom. I am the type of parent who loves chaos and uses creativity in everything I do. Most of my friends cannot relate to my type of parenting because it is so 'messy' a mess that I LOVE!
Thank you for your time, I look forward to meeting ever one of you (I will at least try ;))
