Big Disney Announcements!

Last weekend, the D23 event was held. If you aren’t sure what that is, it is basically the event of all Disney events! It is where Disney announces all of the big news about upcoming changes to their parks, movies, etc. It’s basically a huge, nerdy dream of mine to attend D23 someday! Because I am just too excited to keep all of these D23 announcements to myself, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite announcements that Disney made!

Amazing Family Halloween Costumes

I grew up going to a church Halloween party that was always a highlight of the season. Everyone got into the Halloween spirit, but one family would steal the show every year with their themed costumes. I knew that when I had a family of my own, I wanted to have a family theme for as long as my kids would participate! As soon as I became a mom, those dreams became a reality. I LOVE family Halloween costumes! I have searched and found some of my favorite Halloween costumes online, including some looks from my own Halloweens past.

I just love to see what families choose to be together for Halloween. I think you can definitely tell when the kids have a say and when the choice was mostly made by the parents. No matter who chooses, I love any family who will dress up together! I hope you get some family Halloween costume inspiration! [Read more…]

Wreck it Ralph Sugar Rush Birthday Party

Sugar Rush Birthday Party

Sugar Rush Birthday Party on www.girllovesglam.com

It officially happened! We have a 4 year old now. I don’t really know how it happened, but my little girl is growing up! It has been interesting to see what theme she chooses for her birthday parties each year. So far, she has always chosen a party theme that matches what she chose to be for Halloween the previous year! I was interested to see if she would continue the trend and sure enough, she did! This year we had a Sugar Rush birthday party. Sugar Rush is the game that Vanellope Von Schweetz is in on Wreck it Ralph. It is very specific, but that is just how this four year old rolls. I didn’t do anything overly themed to make it Wreck it Ralph and just stuck with a candy theme. She didn’t think anything of it and I think it would be just as cute to have a candy themed birthday party! [Read more…]

No Sew Vanellope Von Schweetz Costume from Wreck it Ralph

Choosing our family Halloween costume each year is quite the¬†debate. The last two years haven’t been too bad, but this year it was much more difficult because 3 1/2 year olds seem to change their minds every 5 minutes! Eventually, we narrowed it down to being Minions, Wreck it Ralph characters, or Powerpuff Girls characters. It took a long time to decide, but we finally decided on Wreck it Ralph characters! I kind of love that we are going with this theme for a few reasons… 1. I love this movie and I don’t think it got the love that it deserves. 2. This movie is a few years old and there aren’t going to be a million other people dressed like us. 3. This Vanellope Von Schweetz costume is out. of. CONTROL! After we decided what we were going to be, I asked my daughter about the Vanellope Von Schweetz costume and that is when I realized that she wasn’t thinking about the hoodie that Vanellope wears 99% of the time in the movie, she was thinking of the Vanellope Von Schweetz princess dress that she wears for about 30 seconds in the entire movie! So, I mapped it all out and made it happen. Introducing the Vanellope Von Schweetz Princess Costume!
