Disney+ Marathon Day 18 | November 29

4:30am – Rise & shine! 🌞

Need coffee! ☕️ Must. Survive. Black Friday. 😭

6am – Work 🛍

4:45pm – Dinner + Lizzie McGuire 🍕

S1E23 – Last Year’s Model

5:15pm – Bath + Monsters University 🛀 

Final thoughts for the day: To say I’m exhausted would be an understatement. I don’t have an ounce of energy left in my tank to say much more than I hope your Black Friday was better than mine. To my fellow retail employees, my condolences. 🖤 Here’s to wishing day 19 is MUCH better! 🥂

Disney+ Marathon Day 17 | November 28

🍁 H A P P Y   T H A N K S G I V I N G !   🍂  

9am – Rise & shine! 🌞

9:30am – Editing + Lizzie McGuire 💻 

S1E20 – Educating Ethan

12:15pm – Making Green Bean Casserole + Lizzie McGuire 👩🏻‍🍳

S1E20 continued!

I have no idea why it took me THREE HOURS to finish one episode. 🙄

12:30pm – Editing + Lizzie McGuire 💻 

S1E21 – Lizzie Strikes Out

S1E22 – Untitled Stan Jansen Project

2pm – Thanksgiving Meal 🦃

5pm – Editing + Gotta Kick It Up 💻 

Sí, Se Puede!

Since Marshall Middle School is located in a mostly Hispanic neighborhood, I want to highlight a few of the lead actresses:

America Ferrera is Honduran 🇭🇳

Camille Guaty is Cuban & Puerto Rican 🇨🇺 🇵🇷

Sabrina Wiener is Peruvian 🇵🇪

👁 Spotted: Susan Egan | She is the voice of Megara from Hercules, one of my favorite Disney characters & one of my favorite Disney movies. She’s also the original Belle from Beauty and the Beast on Broadway.

7pm – Editing + Jump In 💻 

👁 Spotted: Corbin Bleu | Of course you know Mr. Bleu from the High School Musical trilogy, but you may also remember him as Coltrane from Phineas & Ferb or Johnny Collins from Hannah Montana. He also made the *GASP* crossover to Nickelodeon; he made an appearance on The Amanda Show & Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide.

👁 Spotted: Keke Palmer | Another Disney/Nickelodeon crossover actress! Keke cameoed in Degrassi: The Next Generation & Just Jordan and starred in True Jackson VP & Winx Club. For her Disney resume, it’s worth mentioning that she was Cinderella on Broadway; it was the Rodgers & Hammerstein version, but that doesn’t make her any less of a Disney princess. 👑

👁 Spotted: Shanica Knowles | You might recognize her as Amber Addison from Hannah Montana. She also cameoed on Unfabulous which completes the Disney/Nickelodeon crossover trio!

🎶 This song is still a J A M, & the entire soundtrack is still perfection. 🎶

Final thoughts for the day: Even though I had to work on the computer, it was still a nice, cozy day watching childhood favorites on Disney Plus & eating yummy food with my family. 🧡 I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I’m off to bed because I have an alarm set for 4:30am. Oh the joys of working in retail on Black Friday! 😭 Good night! 🌙

Disney+ Marathon Day 16 | November 27

10am – Rise & shine! 🌞

10:15am – Blogging + Freaky Friday 💻 

I decided to keep my Lindsay Lohan marathon going. 👩‍🦰

Anna’s speech as Tess took me by surprise & put a tear or two in my eyes. I’ve seen this movie so many times & yet I don’t remember being so emotional. I love that sometimes the depth in Disney movies doesn’t hit you in the face but rather sneaks up on you. 🤧

🎶 My generation grew up with the best Disney jams. F A C T ! 🎶

🎶 Remember what I said before?? Still true. 🎶

5:15pm – Work 🛍

Final thoughts for the day: I truly miss Disney queen Lindsay Lohan. I hope she’s doing well these days & knows how much her 2000s tween audience loves her. ♥️ See you tomorrow for day 17! 👋

Disney+ Marathon Day 15 | November 26

10am – Rise & shine! 🌞

This was my 1st time watching this movie, & it was really cute. Not a new favorite, but I would watch it again. 😊

3:45pm – Blogging + The Parent Trap (1998) 💻 

👁 Spotted: Lindsay Lohan | She is in 4 other Disney movies: Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, Freaky Friday, Herbie Fully Loaded, & . . .

Disney+ Marathon Day 14 | November 25

11am – Rise & shine! 🌞

11:20am – Laundry 🧺

11:45am – Shower 🚿

12:20pm – Blogging + Home on the Range 💻 

👂 Heard: Estelle Harris as Audrey the Chicken | She also played Mrs. Potato Head in the Toy Story franchise, Mrs. Turtle on Mickey Mouse Works & House of Mouse, Muriel on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, and Old Lady Bear in Brother Bear. She cameoed on Dave the Barbarian, Disney’s Hercules: The Animated Series, Kim Possible, Phil of the Future, Sonny With a ChanceThe Proud Family, and Timon & Pumbaa.

👂 Heard: Dame Judi Dench as Mrs. Caloway | I’m mentioning her just because she’s a QUEEN, but for the sake of Disney connection continuity, she cameoed in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

👂 Heard: Jennifer Tilly as Grace | She also voiced Celia Mae in Monsters, Inc.

👂 Heard: Patrick Warburton as Patrick | He also voiced Kronk in Emperor’s New Groove, Emperor’s New School, & Kronk’s New Groove

👂 Heard: Steve Buscemi as Wesley | He also voiced Randall Boggs in Monsters, Inc & Monsters University.

I can see why this movie divided critics. It’s definitely not Disney’s best product, & the animation isn’t perfect. However, the characters are endearing, & the animation looked nice for most of the movie, like a Little Golden Book come to life. I also liked the music & loved hearing so many familiar voices. At the very least, it was a pleasant trip down memory lane. 💕 Call me crazy, but I would watch a TV show that revisited Patch of Heaven with Grace, Maggie,  Mrs. Caloway, & the rest of their animal friends. 🐓 🐄 🐐 🐎 🐖

5:30pm – Work 🛍

Final thoughts for the day: Unfortunately I didn’t have a great day. I dreaded work all morning & afternoon. I was nauseous during my entire shift  & felt like I could throw up at any moment. 🤢 I feel a little better now, but I’m exhausted & not looking forward to my workload tomorrow. Hopefully I can sneak in more Disney+ to make myself feel better! 🥰

*Note: I was too tired to remember & acknowledge the end of week 2 so  here’s a reminder. We’re doing great! 🎉

Disney+ Marathon Day 13 | November 24

7am – Rise & shine! 🌞

8:30am – Work 🛍

6pm – Dinner + Wreck-It Ralph

First of all, the concept for this movie is so C O O L. I love the similarity to Toy Story, the idea of inanimate objects living their own lives when they’re alone. In this case, arcade game characters can reside in their own world or travel between games. Second, the brother & sister relationship that develops between Ralph & Vanellope is so sweet. In the beginning, both of them need someone to accept them for who they are; they find that acceptance & friendship in each other. The “You’re my hero” scene definitely made my eyes tear up. One of the most heartwarming scenes but also the most heartbreaking. 😢 I really liked this movie & can’t wait to watch the sequel when it’s available next December. 👍

Final thoughts for the day: Even though I’ve slowed down in terms of volume, I’ve enjoyed watching just one thing & giving it my full attention, especially movies I’ve never seen before. Little by little, we are making our way through this 30-day marathon. How are you feeling? Make sure you’re staying hydrated! 😉

Disney+ Marathon Day 12 | November 23

9:20am – Rise & shine! 🌞

11:20am – Blogging + Moana

Right away, I’m mesmerized by the STUNNING animation. WOW! 😍

At the risk of being dramatic, I would die to protect Baby Moana! 😭💕

Dear Santa, I want a potbelly pig named Pua to roam the islands with. Please & thank you! 🐷

Hei Hei is . . . interesting. 😂

Dwayne Jonhson a.k.a. The Rock was born to play the role of Maui. 💪

I’ve come to the end of the movie, and . . . I am speechless. It was SO FREAKING GOOD!! I’m mad at myself for waiting so long to watch it, but the point is I’ve finally seen it, & I love it. I guarantee I’ll be singing the songs for weeks to come. 🎶

Speaking of the soundtrack, you need to watch this video of Te Vaka live. They helped make the music!

Final thoughts for the day: My holiday work schedule is only going to get crazier from here so expect more days like this with one movie or show. Hopefully that’s not too much of a disappointment. See you tomorrow for day 13. We’re almost at the halfway point! 😲
