Movie of the week!

A certain little someone has been a bit poorly sick over the last week and has taken to watching this week's movie of the week repeatedly!

Having only watched it once before I'm not sure what made our 3 year old, Joseph, pick it out but he did and its one of my faves!

This week's movie of the week is The Princess and the Frog.

Ka-chow - A Cars themed birthday!

My regularly readers and Instagram followers will know that I am a big Disney fan! So, when our little boy, Joseph, asked for a Cars theme for his 3rd birthday party I was happy to oblige!

I love a good themed party and Joseph has been lucky enough to have a Mickey Mouse and a Thomas the Tank Engine theme before. Having a theme can bring a cute touch to a party but it can also make things expensive! If like us you also have two parties, one for family and one for friends, that can add to the cost too!

So, I thought I'd share with you how we did our Cars themed birthday on a budget, twice!

First, I'll be honest with you and say I did start prepping a couple of months before. Doing this allows time for bargain hunting and getting crafty! I started by looking for ideas on Pinterest and had a flick around the internet for any special offers on partyware.

The latter meant I got the themed invites, tablecloth and party bags on special offer at Toys R Us, getting them for less than half price!

Next, I set about coming up with decorations, and again Pinterest was a great resource for this! I decided to go with bunting and to ensure all the pictures I used matched and were the same style I used Disney Wiki. It was time to get crafty!

Book of the week!

Book of the week is a little bit late this week! We've been super busy at home and when I've had chance to sit down I've had a problem with my eyelids closing and nodding off to sleep!! But now the time has finally come for this week's book of the week!  

This week's book is a bit of an educational one! It's Snappy First Words in Spanish!
