800th Post & Announcement!

I am just so excited & there is sooo much to celebrate this week. First of all it is my hubs b-day today! He has been in my life for nearly 8 years and am so grateful to have such a loving & supportive husband. I can go on and on but that's not the big announcement!

The other thing that has been happening is my blog! I have lots of new readers and I'd like to say welcome. I remember when I reached 100 and now I have over 500 readers. That is just outrageous. So with that and all the new changes, gues posts, reviews & giveaways coming up this is the perfect time for this announcement.... And no, we are NOT pregnant! I had someone ask me that the other day, haha. I hope we will be soon, but not yet.

So.... without further adieu....

Are you ready to "Unlock Imagination" at the Disney Store! Out local store had shut down and we were devistated. We didn't know what was going to happen with the store. But lots of stores were going through the same renovations and I am proud to announce that they will be opening tons of stores all around the US in the next few weeks, just in time for the holidays.

In our local city, McAllen, Texas, the Grand Opening of the newly-designed store will be on Tuesday, October 4th at 10am! And everyone is invited. A select few, like me, will be given a tour of the new layout and just check out some of the things that will be featured in the new stores....


“the best 30 minutes of a child’s day” through immersive experiences, including a Disney Princess Castle with Magic Mirror, Translucent Magical Trees, Disney CARS neighborhood, and the Disney Store Theatre, featuring the latest in Disney entertainment. 

“The magic and wonder of Disney is captured within the unique experiences that await families at Disney Store,” said Jim Fielding, President of Disney Stores Worldwide, “More than a store, we’ve created a shopping destination where we will bring the magic of Disney to life every day for McAllen families.”

I hope ya'll are as excited as me... McAllen is joining a group of elite stores that will have the new "concept" stores and by the end of the year there will only be 60 stores in North America! It truly is an honor to have been invited to take a tour of the new store and hope that many of my local readers will join in the fun!

And this store is geared for the whole family to have a Magical time! Do you have boys? Check out this awesome "Cars 2" display. And we all know that the new race cars are going to be a hit!

There is something for everyone! Check out some of the products in the new "Imagination Winter" Collection. These would be great for those who are Disney Collectors or just someone special in your life that loves Disney.

And for the Princess in your life these new "Disney Animators" Collection. The cuteness is unbearable!! Retail value is $24.50!

In 2010, Disney Store unveiled an innovative, highly interactive new store design set to deliver the best 30 minutes of a child's day. also has a new look and feel, while continuing to offer a comprehensive assortment of exclusive Disney merchandise at a great value. When a family visits Disney Store or they will find unique, high quality Disney product and enjoy a magical shopping experience.

Now it's time to REVEAL that Innovation & watch our children enjoy the magic and fun that Disney Store offers families world-wide!

Here's a pic of the Santa Monica, California... who knows, maybe we'll have some celebrities join us at our Grand Opening!! **Mental note: Don't forget the camera!**
