  • Can.not.wait. for that Disney Channel original movie marathon! Our poor DVR is going to be full for the rest of our lives from me saving all of those 🙂 Gah! I can’t get enough of Prince George!! Did you see the pics when he met Obama IN HIS PJS?! I died.

  • Oh my gosh Prince George.. he is SO cute!!! The pictures of him meeting President Obama were the best too. All of that food looks delicious too. I also had this calligraphy kit when I was a little girl too. 🙂 Thanks for sharing and I hope that you have a great day!! 🙂

    • I know how to do traditional calligraphy, too, but I’ve really enjoyed the new modern take on it. So fun and less formal!

  • That Prince George picture is just the cutest…and I love how he was standing on a stack of books!!

  • Oh Prince George is adorable! And I really want to take a calligraphy class sometime!

  • Yay for the switch – your space looks so good! And I’m pumped for that Disney marathon – no shame. #JohnnyTsunami

    • You are so sweet, thank you! And, I’m pretty sure none of us have any shame about our excitement for the Disney movies. It’s so fun to relive our childhood sometimes!

    A Disney Original Movie Marathon?! – I know what you will be watching! I enjoyed the article about girls and anxiety, a lot of truth and some good advice there. And that Prince George, just can’t get enough of that little boy and his family. Yummy looking recipes here today, too!

    • I’m so excited for the Disney movie marathon, I used to watch those on repeat as a kid as I’m sure you remember!

  • William & Kate are just the best 🙂 So excited for the Disney movie marathon!

    OMG I used to love Zenon! Did you ever watch The Secret World of Alex Mack? That was another one of my favorites growing up! And a big old YES to faking calligraphy! haha

    • I never really got into Alex Mack, but I sure did love Zenon – it’s so funny that they’re all coming back on!

  • Prince George is seriously the absolute cutest!!!!! I love that floral midi dress, fab round up as always girl!

    I’ve always admired pretty handwriting. Prince George is just precious 🙂 A friend of mine just shared the Disney marathon lineup. I was a HUGE Zenon fan haha!

    • I’m glad I’m not the only one excited about that marathon! Prince George is the cutest kid alive, I’m convinced.

  • Zenon, what a throwback! I never got the Disney channel at home so I was always so excited to stay at my Grandma’s because I could watch it there haha. I’ve always wanted to learn hand lettering but my writing is just not up to par!

  • Love the royal family, they are so close to normal considering they may be running a country soon. Also I am so beyond excited about Disney Channel replaying their movies, Zenon and Alley Cats are totally on my list, but really all of them will probably be watched lol.

  • Thanks for the London love lady! PUMPED about the Disney Channel movie marathon. Zenon was the best!!

  • That midi dress is perfection, and yessss to all things London and the Royal fam! Happy Friday gurlie <3

  • I have been trying to learn fake calligraphy because I don’t want to spend a fortune on the instruments for real calligraphy. It’s so fun!
