Pixar’s Onward hit theaters and quickly moved to digital release and soon it’ll be streaming on Disney Plus. On April 3rd to be exact. If you missed it, we wrote a detailed review of Onward. Lots and lots of information there about whether it’s too scary for little kids, and our thoughts on the movie. Including my kids review.

We have a weekly family movie night where we take turns choosing movies to watch together. Onward is Pixar’s latest movie to hit theaters, but sadly the run was cut short because of the pandemic. Good news is it’s already available on digital home video, and will be available to stream on Disney+. We got started on making a Pixar Onward Dessert that you can enjoy with your family while you watch Onward together. And don’t forget to download our free Pixar movie watchlist to check this movie off your list. And follow me on Instagram for more digital checklists.

As with all of our recipes, they have to be EASY! So easy that my kids can do it alone or with minimal help. So far we’ve done Tiana’s Beignets, Toy Story Rice Krispy Treats and Princess Jasmine Donuts. Today I’m sharing our Onward Dessert Cones.

For this you just need some square campfire marshmallows, some sugar cones, blue ice cream (or some frosting), toothpicks, and some spray food coloring. You can also have some fun with it and add some blue cotton candy for the hair. The idea is for this to look like the head of the elves.

Pixar onward recipe

You cut the corners off the marshmallows to make the elf ears. Then spray them blue with some food coloring spray. Then stick a toothpick through the bottom and stick that inside your scoop of blue ice cream. We used blue raspberry sherbet for ours.

And after just a few moments of some sugary play you have a fun Onward themed movie dessert. These could be fun for an Onward birthday party too. If you try it please leave us a comment and let us know what you think! We’d also love to hear your thoughts on the movie too!

It’s hard not to love a Disney Pixar movie. All have compelling stories that take us on emotional adventures, characters you learn to love, and teach us important lessons. Ranking our favorite Pixar movies hasn’t always been easy. Especially since the lineup has grown significantly longer over the last several years. But one fun way to do it is with a March Madness-style Pixar movie bracket.

With Onward coming to Disney Plus this week you should be able to watch and rank them all! If you haven’t signed up for Disney Plus yet, now’s a good time to try a week for free.

I homeschooled for two years, and I had plans to begin homeschooling again starting this summer when word of schools around our country shutting down spread. Instilling a love of learning in my children is one of my passions, and I’m always looking for ways to do that.

But I know the idea of homeschooling or helping your kids learn from home can be intimidating. Especially if you’ve never done it before and find yourself in a situation where your kids are suddenly learning from home.

In this blog post I’m going to share some of my favorite resources for free homeschool lesson plans.

Helping your child follow their passions. Parenting an all-star youth cheerleader level 1.

Thursday morning at 9am, I felt like a crazy person as I urged the parents in our cheer group chat that we should not go to the competition in Galveston this weekend. I’m normally a pretty confident person, but sticking your neck out with an unpopular opinion is uncomfortable.

“Seriously, it is like a flu. We aren’t going to die.” A mom replied after I voted “no” to attending.

Black ariel Disney bpund

This Black History Month I have been so hyped for all of the Black stories and Black Girl Magic happening around the internet. In years past I’ve tried to do roundups of some of my favorite books for Black History Month. This year, I’ve kept my eyes open and tried to share many of my cool findings, across several categories.

I wanted a post I could come back to to find some of the best moments from Black History Month this year.

These are things that came across my life and/or feed, and some were crowdsourced from my Instagram audience. I’ve also thrown in some of my personal favorites like in my opinion, the best children’s book celebrating dark skin that every family should have on their bookshelf. I read it to my son’s first grade class a couple months ago and I had parents messaging me later asking for the name of the book.

From books to commercials to people gone viral. Here’s a compilations of 20 of the best moments from Black History Month 2020. I’m sure some epic moments still slipped through so please share other things you’ve seen this month or even this YEAR so we can keep this blackity black year going!


white man proposes to his black girlfriend on Netflix's Love is blind

I secretly started watching Love is Blind on Netflix a couple weeks ago. I don’t even know how I turned it on. One second I was watching something undoubtedly sophisticated and the next minute I’m sucked into a blind love experiment hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey (which by the way where did they go?).

I turned it on as background noise while I was editing pictures and drafting posts but the record screeched when I heard one of the guys say “If I had to guess, I’d say you’re African American…” Say wahhhh?


Easy princess and the frog party beignets

You know we love Tiana. Princess and the Frog is one of our family’s top Disney movies. And I thought for our movie night snack recipe this week, and for the final Friday in Black History Month, we should pay tribute to Princess and the Frog. It’s an easy Princess and the Frog beignets recipe you can make with your kids while watching Princess and the Frog on Disney Plus!

But if you’re having a Princess and the Frog party, or are looking for some Princess and the Frog dessert ideas for a movie night, these easy beignets should do the trick. And even be simple enough for your kids to make.

You know me, and that’s a big requirement for any recipe I share.

For Christmas I surprised my mom with the news that I was taking her to Disneyland! For years I’ve said “we should go,” or “you should come with us!” but timing hadn’t worked out. We’d done Disney trips with just my family. I’ve gone with two of my sisters. My husband’s parents and siblings, but I hadn’t yet shared the magic with my mom.
