weekend shenanigans

Weekend Shenanigas – Disney On Ice Edition

Well, I am not sure about you guys….but having an extra hour this weekend was lovely, and I wish we could gain one every weekend!

Friday – Friday I took the day off work and chaperoned Cooper’s class to Disney On Ice. Cooper is my four year old nephew for those that may not have caught on to that. He is basically the cutest kid there ever was.

We had an amazing time. It is so cool to see the looks on all their faces when the first characters came out on the ice. When there was fire or someone flew they sat at the edge of their seats. When Goofy waved, the little boy that sat in front of us turned around and said “Look! Look! Goofy is waving at me!!!!”

The theme was Treasure Trove and they went through different movies, like Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Aladin, Toy Story, Tangled, Little Mermaid and Snow White. I loved every moment!


Little Mermaid

Aladin flying on the carpet

Snow White

Lion King

Tinker Bell

The crocodile from Peter Pan

Alice in Wonderland

Toy Story

Saturday – I woke up early, cleaned the house and cut the front and side yard. I just have the back to do next weekend and hopefully that will be the last for the year. I felt so damn accomplished after the side yard. I was able to do the whole thing at one time, a first for me. Let’s me know that even if I don’t exactly see results from my work outs lately, I know I am getting in better shape! One day I need to take a picture of that side yard so you see what the big deal is!

I rewarded myself with a Caramel Creme Brulee, one of my favorite holiday drinks from Starbucks…in the pretty red cups of course!


I enjoyed an Ace Pumpkin Cider while catching some of the Georgia game.Sadly, it was a loss.


Sunday – When I woke up, I made myself a cup of Pumpkin Pie Spice coffee and sat down with my book that I haven’t had a chance to read much of lately. I got in several chapters and it felt great! I then made us some cinnamon rolls for breakfast and we watched some of our shows. We then meal planned and headed to the store to get our grocery shopping done for the week.


Sunday evening I had to get some work done since I was out on Friday. I also did a little blogging work and answered all my emails. I am still a little behind on blog reading but hope to catch up this week!

We had some pumpkin cookies with white chocolate morsels this weekend too. I totally whipped out my winter cookie tray.


I hope everyone had a great weekend. Can you believe we are already into November?!

    So glad you and your nephew had a blast! I totally wanted to go to Disney on Ice when it was here, but I didn’t exactly have anyone under the age of 8 to take with me 😉

    It’s so weird that it’s NOVEMBER! ACHK!

    Disney on Ice looked like a BLAST! I am such a sucker for those things! Emry just isn’t in to them anymore. **SIGHS**

    I’m glad you are getting in better shape – that is my goal as well. 🙂

    I’m posting my pictures tomorrow from Disney on Ice! Of course, I had a brain fart and hit delete all on my camera, and then remembered I hadn’t downloaded all my pictures from Friday! FREAK OUT! I immediately turned off my camera and managed to save some of the pictures, but I’m still not happy about it. And I’m so ready to go get my first red cup of the season!!

    I would enjoy Disney on Ice so much – I need a little nephew! Was the Ace good? I’ve seen it but can’t break away from the Angry Orchard to try it.

    Having an extra hour was definitely nice because I had to get up early Sunday morning to bring my friend to the airport. It made it that much more bearable.

  • Reply alyssa November 3, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    Disney on Ice, so awesome!! I actually want to go so bad, the Frozen production is near me this winter. I may just have to buy tickets!
    And YES to the red cups!! I gotta go get myself a CBL soon — they’re SO good! Trumps pumpkin spice, that’s for sure. And gingerbread… and peppermint mocha.. the most wonderful time of the year! 🙂

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says November 3, 2014 at 9:37 pm

    What a fun way to spend a Friday. I want to take Erica to Disney on Ice but I always, ALWAYS forget to buy tickets.

    I think I will try a peppermint drink this year. I don’t drink coffee but I love peppermint. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll do hot chocolate.

  • Reply tricia congilio November 3, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    Pumpkin cider WITH alcohol?! Yes! I wonder if I can add vodka and make it a martini? I had no idea that Disney on Ice had a variety of different cartoons that come out. I really want to go, this looks amazing!

  • Reply tricia coniglio November 3, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    I just realized I spelled my last name wrong in my previous post. Good stuff, huh? LOL

  • Reply Amanda November 4, 2014 at 2:20 am

    We were sooooo looking forward to our “extra” hour of sleep! Unfortunately, Johnny Cakes can’t tell time and woke us up at the usual time… so an hour “early.” hahahahah Good thing he’s so damn cute! ;P
    I saw Aladdin on Ice as a kid and it’s one of my favorite childhood memories. 🙂 My family didn’t have a lot of money growing up but I got that one year for my birthday and it was the SHIT! 🙂
    YAY for red cups!

  • Reply Biana @ Blovedboston November 4, 2014 at 11:59 am

    Sounds like Disney on Ice was a success all around – glad to hear you enjoyed it so much!!

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth November 4, 2014 at 1:12 pm

    The red cups are out???????? Ummmmm as a former life of a figure skater I totally love/hate Disney on Ice it’s so cute but it’s like where washed up talent goes so it makes me sad lol

    Look at Livvy being all sweet and cuddly!

  • Reply Laura November 4, 2014 at 1:29 pm

    He looks so happy to be there! I’m really sad I didn’t see you in a princess dress…wtf Nadine?!?
    Also, if you make cinnamon rolls like that every weekend, you’re going to wake up one Sunday and find me just chilling at your kitchen table.
