Disney Blog Hop – Taking a Break from the Parks

While on vacation at a Disney park, it’s often necessary to take a break from all the hustle and crowds to find more relaxing ways to fulfill Disney needs. This week on the Disney Blog Hop we’re doing the same thing.

Disney Blog Hop is hosted by Babes in Disneyland and provides bloggers a place to gather and share their Disney-themed posts. As such…it’s also a great place for non-blogging, Disney fans to go for a Disney fix.

The assignment this week is to share a picture that is Disney-related but not taken at a Disney park.

I LOVE posting photos so I’m definitely feeling the theme this week. And it shouldn’t be too difficult to find good pics, since my life is Disney saturated. As usual, the hard part will come in trying to narrow down my selections to a reasonable number.

First up, is my daughter in her homemade Boo costume. I made the costume and one of the talented Tags at Tagrel.com edited in the Mike and Sully background for this fantastic Monsters Inc. photo avatar that I use on DISboards.com.

Next up…my Disney magnet gallery, aka my fridge. I’ve been grabbing souvenir magnets from every Disney trip since 1999. My best friend brings me one when she goes as well. I love all the bright colors.

I no longer have a local Disney Store so I was excited to visit the newly opened North State Street store in Downtown Chicago last November. My oldest daughter is a resident so I talked her into taking me when I was there visiting her. Feels like it must be time to head up that way again.

I love gardening. I also love photography. I was taking pics for a photo contest when I noticed the hidden Mickey in my flower bed. This photo won me a prize for “Most Creative” on BloomingDaily.com. My prize…a fabulous flower photo taken on Main Street USA. Winning!

That’s all for this week. Be sure to check out the other links on the hop and come back next week for more!

  1. Your daughter’s Boo costume is awesome! You did a great job. I love the Hidden Mickey in your garden! I just wish I could grow something…

    • Thanks for the compliment. My daughter has outgrown the costume, but I’m unable to turn loose of it. I use it as a prop in my haunted garage each Halloween now.

  2. I love all your pictures!! Boo is too cute and the flowers are perfect!! thanks for sharing! :)

  3. I, too, can’t believe that costume was homemade! Between your photography talents, and design/construction abilities, I certainly hope you have your own business. Let me know!

  4. I love, love, LOVE the Boo costume!! We’re magnet collectors, too, in my house, although I don’t have near enough Disney ones… yet! Beautiful flowers, what a lovely Hidden Mickey!

  5. I stared at the flower picture for a full minute before I found the hidden Mickey LOL! Great post :)

  6. OMG, that Boo costume is so cute. My daughter loves Boo so much, she sleeps with her every night. Love all the magnets, I just had to take our down because we got a new fridge.

    • Boo is one of my favorite characters. Your daughter has good taste. ;o)
      I should take my magnets down and give them a good bath…and a new fridge would be awesome!

  9. That Boo costume is amazing, I love it. I collect magnets too. We have a lot of the same ones. :o)

    • Thanks for stopping in Melissa!
      Lately I have a hard time choosing a magnet during my trip. I wish they had more that were fabulous and unique. Maybe next time!

  10. You are so talented! That costume is amazing! Your flowers are beautiful and you already know I love your photography. It is very creative, no wonder you won!

  11. You are wrong, that is not a picture of the North Michigan store. North State St. The Michigan one is not that cool.
