I (Sarah) have always been fascinated by the Disney Princesses. Recently, I came across this article on Stylist that features beautiful renditions of the Disney Princesses as real life people. The art is drawn by Jirka Vaatainen who draws various Disney themed characters as real people. He started with Ursula from The Little Mermaid, and then did the princesses. This is a new side to Disney characters (both princesses and otherwise) that I am thoroughly enjoying. See them HERE!
What Disney character would you like to see drawn as a real life person?
I (Sarah) love science fiction and cheesy disaster movies, and I could not be more thrilled about the SyFy network talking about a reboot of Tremors! Tremors was about these creatures called Graboids that lived under the ground and how they blasted them out to win back their town. A reboot t.v. show or this movie sounds like a blast! What’s even better news for fans is that Kevin Bacon wants to come back for the show.
What movie would you like to see a television series based on?
OMG OMG OMG, you guys! I (Jeni) told you guys about my excitement over the new Golden Girls Clue game that should be coming out, and now guess what? There’s a Golden Girls Monopoly game being released, too!! Wahooo!!! No telling when this will happen – when I Facebook messaged USAopoly, they said this:
Oh, ok, USAopoly, thanks for being so VAGUE! Ugh. I can’t wait! I’m not even bothering to ask about the Monopoly release time. Anyways, back to the game. It looks like so much fun, and the pieces are hysterical – including Stan’s toupee, Fernando (Rose’s teddy bear) and Blanche’s brush. When I zoomed into the board, I saw that every “property” is an actual place from the show. Hollingsworth Manner and Shady Pines are where Boardwalk and Park Place would be. This is going to be an epic game, that I KNOW my boyfriend is going to get sick of playing. But hat’s where love is really put to the test, isn’t it? 😉
Which Monopoly games are your favorites?
Do you have a child who loves sidewalk chalk? I (Sarah) recently spotted this mandala stencil kit for sidewalk chalk from Alex Toys for only $6.62! I remember being a child and trying to fit sidewalk chalk in my Tupperware stencils, the struggle was real!
Have a child going off to camp this summer? These adorable summer camp journals are just $15.99!
You know those inexpensive, tasty ice pops that every kid loves that come in the long plastic tubes? Now you can make your own at home with any type of juice or soda. This pack of 160 ice pop tubes with a funnel is just $10.17! They are BPA free and include an e-recipe book.
I (Sarah) totally wish I was a mermaid. When I was younger monofins (swimmable mermaid tails) were not a thing. Now they are. This set makes me wish I was a little kid again! Can you get any cuter in a swimming pool than being a mermaid?
Would your little girl want to be a mermaid when she swims?
I (Jeni) love pizza. I love ice cream. I know – I’m a weirdo, right? 😉 I actually love the idea of pizza flavored ice cream, even though it sounds grody to the max! It’s made with crushed tomatoes, basil, garlic, oregano, crushed red pepper and other stuff you normally find in pizza. You can only get it in Philadelphia at a specific restaurant….. dang! Won’t be that easy to try!
Would you try pizza ice cream?
This is fun! This isn’t really a quiz or anything like that, but you can see if the way you say certain words or what you call certain things will nail where you are from! I (Jeni) am from California, and this was totally accurate for me!
Did it predict where you are from correctly for you!?
Hipknoties – these pieces of clothing are pretty amazing! It’s ONE piece that you can wear 30 different ways. Seriously. How cool is that!? Plus, sale colors start at only $24.99, so it’s a serious bargain! These are so clever, and so affordable, I (Jeni) don’t know why I haven’t gotten one yet! Check out the video below to see how it works:
What’s your favorite piece of clothing?
Do you remember when Burger King had the most amazing french toast sticks on the entire planet? I (Sarah) most definitely do. They were a huge part of my childhood growing up. I recently found this copycat recipe and they taste exactly like the ones that I remember from Burger King as a kid.
What’s on the menu in your home?
