Disney on Ice: Rockin Ever After

This year Dave and I decided not to do a lot for the kids for Christmas gift wise, and instead focus on doing more "experiences" with the kids. Kensley's "experience" was tickets to Disney on Ice. Yesterday afternoon we took Rowan to Grandma Patti's to hang out, (Don't worry he will get his own "experience" soon!) and then Dave, Kensley and I drove up to Cleveland to see the show.

Heading to Disney on ice! #daywithmyprincess

We got to the show and immediately dropped $10 on cotton candy and a princess crown. She refused to eat a hotdog or anything because she saw the cotton candy first and wanted that. When we headed to our seats we sat down and a guy was coming around with snow cones. He yelled, "Anyone like a snow cone?!" and Kensley shot her hand up. He stopped and looked at us and I had to say no. You should have seen her face. I told her we would get one in a little bit. That meant about 5 minutes later. Another $10 spent on a snow cone and princess cup. She then proceeded to spend more focus on that snow cone then the actual show.

At the beginning of the show, Mickey Mouse came out and she turned to me and said, "See mom! I TOLD you he'd be here!" I guess I should have researched a little bit about the show. I assumed since it was Disney Princesses on Ice that all of the princesses would be there. She kept asking when Cinderella was going to come out and I kept telling her I am sure she's coming out soon. She never did. She wasn't part of this show. My little Cinderella dress wearing girl was not happy. She asked me where she was. Why she didn't show up. She explained that she must have been throwing up. (K was sick last week so maybe that explains why she would think that?!) I guess the lesson learned is do your research mom before you tell your child a princess will be there.

Even without Cinderella being there, and even after dropping huge amounts of cash on junk food and princess gear, I would say it was 100% worth it. We got to spend the afternoon with our very own princess and she told us she loved it and wants to see the princesses again soon!

Mickey Mouse came out and she said, "See mom! I TOLD you he'd be here!" Haha

And look out Cinderella, when we come to Disney World...We are coming for you!

Happy Birthday to Me!

I was pretty spoiled today by the hubby. First thing in the morning he woke me up to the sight of some birthday balloons. IMG_0410 The number 1 balloon popped so I guess I am only 3 this year ;) IMG_0413 We had an amazing dinner at my favorite restaurant with amazing wine, filet and some hot lava cake. IMG_0415 I also hit the birthday swag jackpot! Earrings, a sparkly make-up bag, Mumford and Sons CD, a new pair of skinny jeans, a comfy sweatshirt and cozy socks, my favorite body lotion and a cute penguin hand sanitizer dispenser.
