Countdown to the Weekend: 7/20/2012

Why, hello there. How was your week? Ours was super hot, and now super rainy. Hoping for sunshine and some cooler temperatures this weekend!

Quite a few stellar posts around the Disney web world this week! Here are a few I recommend trying out:

» Jingle bells, jingle bells! The Disney Blog shares the 2012 Disney Ornament Collection over at Hallmark. I love love the Muppet one! (Surprise, surprise)
» Moving to a new place is never easy but I’m sort of jealous of NJ native, Kelly, who just moved next door to the mouse! She ventured to EPCOT for the first time recently, and I love her enthusiasm!
» Mr. Mouse on the Mind (aka Rob) talks about his appreciation for the parks, even though he’s not into it as much as his wife is.
» The gals at Best Friend’s Guide are giving away an adorable Cinderella moleskin! Go enter! (Or don’t… because I want to win!)
» Very little can convince me to run a marathon but Sarah at Running at Disney almost sways me with character opportunites!
» It’s going to be a holly jolly Christmas after all as Tough Pigs announced The Muppet Christmas Carol will be out on Blu-ray in  November with some awesome special features!
» Melissa of Disney on Wheels visits the Joy of Tea over in Epcot. It certainly looks delish!
» Such a great look at a Disneyland Paris trip over at Growing Up Disney!
» Vintage Disneyland shares a great story (with proof!) of the last DL ticket book!

endearing and underrated, this happy place blog film series

Much much thanks to Jeff B. & Michelle for writing their pieces for the EndEARing & Underrated film series! I so loved both of their movie choices and how well they backed both up!

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Podcast of the Week but I cannot ignore the fabulousness of the Disney Hipsters who hosted a happy hour of their own (actually 2) circling around World Showcase while sampling beers from each country. There’s a lot of brainstorming going on, and also cursing. So beware kids. Adult content only. But I just loved listening to them, and it made me crave a beer at 8 in the morning. Be sure to download their podcast here!

Just want to take a quick moment to thank all the new friends who have stopped in to comment! It’s been a great week and I’m glad to have you!

Have a great weekend!
