Magical Blogorail Blue - The Ultimate Disney Meal

Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney Babies Blog  and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail

Imagine sitting at a perfectly set table with crisp white linens being served by your own personal waiter. Now imagine the table is in your resort room.  That's right - a fabulous steak dinner from ROOM SERVICE.

It was a last minute decision because we had had such a busy day, it was July and we were exhausted.  We were staying at the Yacht Club and you know how fabulous the food from the Yachtsman Steak House is.  When we ordered room service we were expecting the usual knock at the door and they shove a plastic tray at you and have you sign the ticket.  This experience was totally unexpected.

The waiter rolled his cart in and cleared the table in our room.  Next he pulled out a starched white tablecloth and covered the table.  Next he sat each place with silverware and two glasses - one with water and one with the sodas we had ordered - then he even pulled out the chair for me.

The food was beyond delicious, the steaks were perfectly cooked, the salad and potato were fabulous too.  But my favorite part of the entire meal was the dessert - chocolate hazelnut cake.  It was the chef's special dessert and I haven't been able to find it on any menu at Walt Disney World.  It was so good I would go to a restaurant just for the cake!! 

Let me tell you, the experience was so satisfying that we actually ate room service again a couple of nights later - and yes I got the chocolate hazelnut cake for dessert again.

Olaf's Summer Vacation Project with DIStherapy

It didn't even take until Thursday for me to decide which Pinterest Challenge I am going to undertake.  My good friend Donna from DIStherapy asked me to reimagine Olaf so that he could travel Europe with her this Summer.  Who could say no to that??

Here is the Pin we started with (the original tutorial was on Spoonful).

Now, we are reimagining Olaf to go on European vacation with Donna. A few things are going to have to change to suit our purpose.

  • He needs to be larger so that he will look good in photos.
  • We prefer more stick like arms and hair.
  • We like the happy dancing Olaf from this coloring page better so he will be our template.
You can find this adorable coloring page at Spoonful.
Be sure to come back to see our version of Olaf in the next week or so, then follow DIStherapy on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to follow #OlafSummerVacation.

Have a Magical Day!!

Challenge DDK - Pinterest Challenge

Remember this post with the  Mickey Topiary tutorial?  It all came to be because I had a bad link on my Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Board post.  When one of you sent me a request for a new link the tutorial had been taken down by the original poster.  I couldn't let you guys down so I set out to recreate it myself and I loved the end result.  This got me to thinking about something very frustrating for me...

One of my biggest pet peeves is clicking on something you love on Pinterest and it goes to a non-working link or it is just a picture uploaded by the user.  One of the greatest things about Pinterest is being able to find items you love and the source to buy them or a great tutorial for making them yourself.  So if you are not a creative type what do you do?  You ask me!! My latest adventure here at Disney Donna Kay is Challenge DDK and this week's theme is the...

I am asking you to challenge me to recreate something you saw on Pinterest and just can't figure out how to make yourself.  I will scour the internet for the best possible tutorials to recreate your project - and if all else fails I will create it from scratch myself.  In a couple of weeks I will be posting my version of the project complete with an easy to follow tutorial.

Here's how it works:

  • Add a link to the Pin you would like for me to recreate on the Disney Donna Kay Facebook Page.
  • Be sure to check out all of the submissions and comment on ones you would like to see recreated.
  • I will choose a Pin from those submitted on Thursday 7/3/14.  
  • My completed project will be posted on 7/18/14 with a step by step tutorial on how you can create it yourself.
Be looking for more DDK Challenges coming soon - I am very excited about challenging my friends to get their creative juices flowing and eventually would love to challenge you - my readers!!  So, hurry over to my Facebook page with your Pinterest link so we can get this party started!!

Have a Magical Day!!

Three Things Thursday

I'm older than a lot of my Disney friends, but there's something fabulous that comes with age...acceptance, pride, confidence.  Today's Three Things Thursday is my chance to share some things I have learned at the ripe old age of 50 that I wish I had know when I was younger.

  1. Love Yourself.  I promise it's the first step in having true friends and finding that someone special.  If you don't love yourself you aren't ready for someone to love you.  Love your extra 10 pounds, you potty mouth or your "prominent" nose.  Self acceptance is a wonderful thing, and believe me you're a pretty awesome person.  
  2. Always Be Yourself. Be yourself and never try to change to make someone else happy.  You know yourself better than anyone, you know how you feel and what you like or don't like. If you ever have a relationship (romantic or otherwise) and the other person is constantly trying to change you - get out ASAP!!  You want someone to love you for you, you shouldn't have to change who you are for anyone - ANYONE.  You are perfect just the way you are, if someone doesn't like it that's their problem - show them to the door.  Nothing drains you like negativity, refuse to let others rain on your parade.
  3. Be The Kind Of Friend You Want To Have.  Everyone is not going to like you, that is a fact of life - but if you want to find true friends you have to be one. Genuinely support you friends in the best way you know how, and don't expect anything in return.  You will be amazed at how good it makes you feel to do something nice for someone, that feeling is your reward.  I fully believe that the Golden Rule we learned in elementary school is the best foundation for all of life's relationships.  When you start follow the "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." rule you will be amazed at how much fuller and happier your life will be.
OK, I am stepping down from my soapbox with my awesome short haired, fully made up, cheap costume jewelry wearing,  unapologetic self in tact and ready to be your BFF and support you in every way I can.    

Have a Magical Day!!
