Disney Online

Disney Online and Disney Interactive Studios have released their summer games for some good old fashion family game time. Well, maybe not old fashion... more like karaoke and video games based on Disney movies.
Sound good?

I'll show you around the party I was lucky to attend! The room was filled with TVs and games. Along with each game was the game designer to explain the best features of each game.

Nick spent a lot of time playing the online game ToonTown with Philip(above).
Thanks for all the tips, Philip!!!

Here's Nick with the new Cars Online game expert. Thanks for the cool hat, dude!
Radiator Springs here we come....

Split Second was Nick's favorite game by far. Available now for XBox 360 and PS3.
See the fiery explosion on the screen in the picture above?
That would be Nick having a blast, (i know) playing Split Second.

Here is a quote from when I asked him to write a review on this game.

"Split Second a breath taking action game with driving, destroying and amazing tracks. You are competing against the best drivers in the world. It is totally fast and fun." -10 year old gamer Nick

Disney Faires Online At Pixie Hollow

You can invite Tinker Bell and her pals at Pixie Hollow into your home with the click of your mouse (pun intended). Disney online makes it easy this summer to entertain your kids safely online.

My favorite part about Disney Online is there is not gaming system required. Any where you have access to the internet, you can play in Going to grandparents? Going on a trip? You can play with your fairy when you arrive at your destination. She's always just a click away..... Go ahead what are you waiting for? Create your Fairy and Fly

Miraclebody Jeans: A Fairy Tale

Once upon a time there was a mom blogger in search of jeans that fit, day after day she bravely ventured into dressing rooms... these jeans are too short, these jeans are too tight, never could she find the jeans that were just right. She searched every mall in all the land.

One day a little birdie named twitter delivered an invitation to a friend's home (thanks Momfluential) for a Miraclebody Jeans party. She had never heard of the new Miraclebody Jeans. Was this an invitation to the ball? Was it finally time to meet her Denim Godmother?

She walked in the room to see the jeans hanging, waiting just for her... as she took them off the hanger something felt different. There was a softness and stretch to them she had known before in her favorite leggings. Could it be? A smile swept over her face, first one leg then the next, she effortlessly slid them on. The jeans fit like a glass slipper made just for her. She looked into the mirror mirror on the wall. She was the fairest of them all, she looked 10 pounds lighter in 10 seconds. Once she had found the jeans made just for her, she lived stylish and comfortably ever after.

This is my story. I am the queen of jeans, I wear them everyday but I had yet to find the perfect fitting jean. 10 years ago I became a mom, in the nine months I was pregnant the style of jeans changed to low-cut. Along with my son, a plumber's crack and muffin top were also born. I was never able to find the right fitting jeans until now.... Miraclebody has made a new jean unlike any other and found a way to fit all shapes and sizes!! And did I mention they are made in the USA?! These jeans should be called "The New Mom Jeans!" I am a mom on the go, I needed a jean that is going to move with me, have the perfect rise and just enough coverage in the back AND that's exactly what I got!!!!

As I mentioned before I was invited to a party and given a pair of these heavenly jeans. I have to admit, a little on the pricey side I don't think I would even try $110. jeans on BUT... consider the effort on actually losing 10 lbs., consider the cost of liposuction then consider: looking great in really comfortable jeans=Priceless (Photo courtesy of Julie -thanks!)

Perfect fitting jeans are no longer a Fairy Tale....
Miraclebody Jeans are reality!

"Project Natal" Xbox 360: It's All Fun And Games

I've heard rumors about "Project Natal" for Xbox 360 (pronounced Nay-tall), no controllers, no wires, just your body and your avatar..... really? Yes, Really!

My family and I were invited to a "sneak peek party" to play their first version of "Project Natal". Let's start with the name. In case you haven't heard of this from your kids yet- you will soon enough it'll be the new hot item to have and on every holiday wish list. Project Natal sounds a little like a science experiment crossed with a blockbuster spy movie starring Matt Damon. And that alone is intriguing to me. So hubby, neenie (g'ma), 10yr. old gamer, and I were off on our first "Project Natal" experience. We were greeted by the really friendly Project Natal Team of gals and given (to keep) a new handy dandy FlipCam to record ourselves while playing. We did not disappoint, silly we were!

Flip video coming soon....

It looks like we're going the hokey pokey I know, but by the looks on our faces you can see how much fun we were having. We were playing the only game they were sharing with us for now, Dodge Ball. More games will be released and another get together for playing is coming soon, I hope! My family had 3 generations at the party, this is fun for Grandparents, Parents, and of course kids~ It is so nice to find activities for kids to be interacting with adults that is fun for everyone and best of all it keeps you active!!!

*Warning: not recommended for couch potatoes!

Check out these posts from two of my ladies.....
And my sister's post with FlipCam video:

Thank you to The Project Natal Team for letting us be part of the Xbox 360 family!
We can't wait to play together again soon~
