Weekly Round Up: January 22

Spice Road Table (Mouse on the Mind)Monday afternoon, I was shivering in the 50ish degree Florida sunshine … today, I’m a foot deep in freezing snow and ice in North Jersey. Bet you can guess which one I prefer!!

But I am low on complaints as I consider how lucky I have been over the past year and how many things have come up in my favor, even amid incredible heartache and confusion. This past weekend was just another example of that, as I celebrated At Disney Again‘s birthday at his side.

The rest of this week will bring new posts, but I’m really gearing up for next week. I’m putting together some really amazing content for the blog, including some new Magic Kingdom features, the newest dining spot in Epcot and a nod to the Superbowl. Hope you’ll hang with me!

A Special Shout Out
She doesn’t know I am planning to do this, but I want to send some special love to Emma of A Pinch of Pixie Dust. I read my Disney blogs on an RSS feed every day. I read a lot, and I mark the ones I want to share with you for later review. This past week and a half, I have marked so. many. of Emma’s posts. Because she is doing awesome, creative, thoughtful stuff.

For example, did you know that Disney was offering Limited Time Magic character cards? I didn’t. But Emma collected them. She also ordered ALL OF THE CUPCAKES at Be Our Guest. And shared the hammocks of Castaway Cay … much appreciated as I dug myself out of this snow storm.

Do your self a favor and visit Emma.
