My favorite Disney photo

One of my favorite things to do when I'm at the Disney parks is take pictures. This picture is one of my all time favorite. Leo and MK were riding the Teacups at Disneyland and I was clicking away when I noticed this couple. I was so pleased at how the picture came out. I love how the woman has her hands up with reckless abandon, laughing and the gentleman has a huge smile on his face. It pretty much sums up what Disney is all about. Something about the Disney magic that takes over you no matter what your age.

Kim Possible

On our last visit to Epcot,Maggie had a blast doing the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure. It’s an ultra interactive quest at Epcot based on the Disney Channel animated series, Kim Possible. She got to transform into a secret agent, join Team Possible and help save the world from super-villains with the help of a high-tech "Kimmunicator". Maggie’s mission (if she chose to accept it) sent her to England where she defeated the villian and saved the world! She was so focused and she took her job very seriously. Out of everything we did in Epcot this was by far her favorite! She wanted to spend the entire day looking for villains.

Go Wickless!!

My latest venture! Scentsy. I know what you're thinking. Another home consultant gig Marianne? It wish I could say it was a hard decision, but it wasn't! I absolutely love this product and I would not at this time of my life especially, get involved with something that I wasn't completely passionate about. I simply don't have time for that.

As a candle addict, I purchased a couple of Scentsy warmers after reading about them online. I opened my new warmer and was pleasantly surprised at how pretty it was and the excellent quality. Then I added a couple of scent bars plugged it in and I was sold! It was better then any candle I had ever purchased, it made my house smell wonderful and even my husband really liked it!

Here are the reasons why I joined:

1. Awesome product that makes my house smell great
2. Options of having home parties or selling product on the internet
3. Opportunity to share this fun product with others and make a little extra money on the side
4. 80 + different, delicious fragrances and a fantastic variety of warmers, plug ins and other products

Of course if you would like to host a party there are some awesome Hostess rewards that you can take advantage of. If you prefer to order online, and you have any questions give me a call. I'll be happy to assist. If there is a particular scent you are interested in I can drop by or mail a sample. Go ahead and take a look at all of fun warmers and plug ins.

Disney Autograph Book.

I lost my USB cord for my camera and I have tons of pictures from Walt Disney World. I finally broke down and bought a new one. Here are some pictures of the autograph book I made for Maggie to take with her on our trip.

The characters really enjoyed looking at it while they signed it always asking Maggie if she made it! The most excited was the CM that was with the UP characters, as well as the UP characters. They made a HUGE deal out of it and spent extra time with her signing and fooling around. I think DUG may have licked her a few times.

Pure Imagination

I heard this song on a commercial this morning and it immediately brought me back to when I was about 7 years old. My mom would drop my brother and I off at the movie theater while she would go shopping. Back in the day there was just one movie playing in the movie theater. My favorite snack was a big ol dill pickle and a Coke. The movie, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and this song just reminds me of being a child and carefree. I really felt in this movie I was there with Willy Wonka, touring his factory. Something about Gene Wilder. He was odd, but at the same time something about him was comforting. I knew all along he would take care of Charlie in the end. It was in his eyes, a certain look. Gene Wilder was a genius that way.

I did of course see the remake "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and usually Johnny Depp can do no wrong in my book. But he could not match Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka. I enjoy watching the original with my kids and it has always been a favorite in our household.

When I hear this song I wish I could be a little girl again, just for a little while.

Come with me and you'll be In a world of pure imagination.
