Weekly Round Up: January 8

Ryan Gosling loves Mouse on the Mind. You should too.

It’s Tuesday, and that means lots of links here at Mouse on the Mind!

And we hope you’ll keep coming back throughout the rest of the week, because we’ve got some good stuff coming up, including one of my favorite Disney shopping tips and a great guest post about the Twilight Zone.

Or, if you just want to hang around here and stare at Ryan Gosling until a new post pops up, we won’t judge you. (Thanks to Estelle from This Happy Place for making Mouse on the Mind a much happier place with her photoshopping skills!)

Some exciting news to kick off this week’s post: I’m working with Adam and Andrew (from The Disney Hipster Blog) and Estelle on a meet up in New York City for late February.
