The Real Hero of Frozen

Each time we sit down to watch Frozen, Frozen 2, or the Frozen shorts, my husband remarks on how amazing Elsa is (bada$$ is the word he chose, but I felt weird cursing in a post about Disney so). While I agree that Elsa is fierce and all around awesome, I don't think she's the [...]

Who is the Best Disney Prince?

Kristoff. Obviously. What, that isn't enough? Here are my reasons: Pet reindeer. What, still not enough?! Here's the real goods: Pet reindeer (it's worth mentioning twice! Animals are excellent judges of character. Plus it's clear he can take care of someone. He isn't self-centered like some other males we know (ahem Hans)). He's honest- to [...]

Life Lessons from Frozen 2

Frozen II spoilers ahead, so read at your own risk! As you all know, I'm fully and totally obsessed with Frozen II.

It is magnificent. I also shared this trailer this morning on the blog's Facebook page. Make sure you're following there [...]

If Dads Summarized Disney Movies

The Little Mermaid falls under the topic of 'heated discussions' in our household. My husband (I would hope jokingly but I'm honestly not sure) is against the kids watching it, because Ariel deliberately disobeys her father. Then I provide the counterpoint of her father being anti-human, and how she opened his eyes to a new world. [...]

Hiking the Butte

We've been having what feels like unseasonably warm weather here in Alaska. It's late March, almost all of our snow has melted, and we've had abundant sunshine and high temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s for at least two weeks. I've been enjoying getting out and enjoying this warmer weather, with Baby A [...]
