Chef Mickeys Tips You Need to Know

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. Over the years our family has always made it a point to eat breakfast at Disney's famous Chef Mickeys located at Disneys Contemporary Resort. It was always a restaurant that my kids and I looked forward to eating at. My kids loved it because they got to see all of the main Disney characters and get their autographs. I enjoyed it because it was a buffet and when you are a mom with picky eaters, Disney buffets are the best. Like most Disney food establishments Chef Mickey's is expensive so I wanted to share Chef Mickey's Tips You Need to Know. Chef Mickey's is great for any kid or adult that loves the original Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie … [Read more...]

Teach Your Kids Playground Etiquette

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. As a mom with 6 kids, I know that kids, especially girls, can be mean to their peers. It is unexplainable and at times extremely frustrating because too often parents don't know how their kids are treating other kids or being treated themselves. I do not believe in being a helicopter mom but I do believe in teaching and training my kids how to treat one another. When I decided that I wanted to write this post I was initially going to title it, 'Teach Your Girls Playground Etiquette', but then realized that boys need to be taught this as well. I've been raising kids for over 20 years and from my experience, most kids are genuinely amazing. They want to have friends, … [Read more...]

How to Avoid Weight Gain During a Cruise

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. Last year the House of Faucis went on our first cruise. Our family had the most amazing time on the Royal Caribbean cruise. Not only did we create amazing and unforgettable memories but we relaxed like we've never relaxed before. In addition to relaxing, we ate! We ate 3 square meals a day, along with cookies before bed and we washed our food down with soda and a variety of umbrella drinks. With that said, it was no surprise that when we go home, we had gained a lot of weight. Our next cruise is scheduled for the end of March and I have already come up with several ways to avoid weight during our next cruise. Most of us can agree that when we are on vacation, … [Read more...]

Is Disney The Most Magical Place on Earth

This post contains affiliate links. Please see full disclosure here. I have been visiting Disney for 20 years and I've been writing my thoughts about Disney for 3 years. I love Disney and I love to share my Disney experiences that are both good and bad. I recently posted an article 'Why Disney's Art of Animation is Not For Me' on my House of Fauci's Facebook page and someone immediately assumed that I am 'not loving Disney anymore'. This is far from the truth. Walt Disney World is still my family's number one vacation destination and most likely always will be, but I sometimes have to question 'Is Disney the Most Magical Place on Earth', so I decided to share the good and the bad about Disney. In life, there are positives and … [Read more...]

Why I Love Literati Subscription Service for Kids

Thank you, Literati, for sending me one subscription box at no cost for my honest review. I have always loved to read. When I was a child, I would always read and even now as an adult, I am always reading.
