Get Ready for Movie Night with Disney #PixarCOCO!

#PixarCoCo_005.jpg

Whenever we are really super excited about a movie, the first thing my girls say as we walk out of the theater is, "Mom when can we watch it at home?!" Coco was no exception, my girls could not wait for a Coco movie night. Well we've had Coco on digital for a couple of weeks now, but there is just something fun about getting the DVD too. 

#PixarCoCo_006.jpg

Thank you to Allied Contigo for the fun crafts and gifts. How cute is this COCO frame? I had so much fun painting it. Yes, I did it. I used it as an excuse to get some quiet craft time in for myself. Although, I think I'll go pick one up for my girls now. 

#PixarCoCo_009.jpg

Frames play a key role in Coco. For Día de Muertos frames are used to display photos of loved ones that have passed and are placed on ofrendas.

You can find these cute DIY frames at Toys-R-Us for $12.99.  The frame set includes: 1 Wooden Frame, Sticker Sheet, Foam Sticker Sheet, 2 Markers, 6 paints and a paintbrush. 

#PixarCoCo_003.jpg

Oh man, I have to say I haven't done something so challenging when it comes to crafting in a really long time. When I opened up this package my mouth dropped, the paint by number that I was thinking of was a lot less intense. But I was up for the challenge. And I have to say I was pretty proud of myself when it was done. 

#PixarCoCo_007.jpg

Isn't it so pretty?! I can't wait to hang it up on the wall. My girls kinda loved it too and they were really proud of me.

Gift Ideas for the Cool Little Girls #JCPchallenge

Gift Ideas for the Cool Little Girls #JCPchallenge

This post is sponsored, thanks to JCPenney. All opinions and photos are my own. 

And just like that, my girls are grown. No longer are the days of picking out cute little matching outfits that I like. Now, all of a sudden and what seems like out of nowhere, my girls have opinions of their own and style preferences. The early tween age is pretty tricky, it’s a balance of them finding themselves while still guiding them to not make poor or inappropriate fashion decisions. JCPenney has so many great deals throughout the store. I was able to find an adorable dress, jeggings, a really cool top and stocking stuffers too!

Bring the Family Together this Thanksgiving with Disney's #PixarCOCO!

Bring the Family Together this Thanksgiving with Disney's #PixarCOCO!

The anticipation was real when it came to Coco. From the moment we heard that Disney and Pixar were going to be taking on the traditional Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos. Personally, I could not wait to see how they were going to add their magical touch to an already beautiful Mexican tradition. Through all of the doubt and skepticism, Disney and Pixar came out on top and proved all of the doubters wrong. #PixarCOCO

Bring Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” Home Today!

Bring Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” Home Today!

Earlier in the year I talked about how much I LOVED Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3.” I'll be honest, the Cars movies have not been my favorites from Disney, until this one, I loved Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3.” I loved the inclusion of a strong female (Latina) character and the encouraging message. More importantly, my girls loved it. Just the other day my youngest asked when she could watch Cars 3 again and luckily for her, Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” has just been released on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD™ and DVD, Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD™ & Blu-ray™.

Discover a Different Breed of Hero #MyLittlePonyMovie in Theaters Oct. 6th!

I did it again. This weekend I won the Best Mom in the World Award when I surprised my daughter with an advanced screening of the newest My Little Pony Movie. I loved My Little Pony when I was a little girl and I was not-so-secretly excited when my girls started loving them too. We have spent many hours watching My Little Pony over the past few years so, I have become very familiar with these lovable ponies. Pinky Pie and Rainbow Dash are my favorites with Fluttershy coming in a close third.

Get Ready for #PixarCOCO with these Printable Activity Sheets

How excited are you for Disney/Pixar's latest greatest creation, COCO!? I know I'm not alone in this. It has been such a long road to get here, as a Latina Mama I know there was a lot of resistance and a lot of hesitation and hope that Disney would honor the traditions behind Dia de los Muertos. I have yet to see the film for myself, but from the trailer (which you can check out below) it seems as though Disney has worked their magic and created a really beautiful story. #PixarCOCO

I can't believe it's been almost a whole year since the first #WeAllGrowFAMILIA.  The We All Grow Summits have been some of my favorite times of year over the last few years and when I received an invitation to last years #WeAllGrowFamilia at the Munchkin Inc. headquarters, I could not wait to see what this amazing day was going to bring to us. I love the feeling of being surrounded by like-minded, strong, ambitious, powerful women that are ready to share their inspiration and be inspired-- and this day was all of that, plus familia.
