Make a Wish

Hi there. I have the perfect activity for your Aladdin movie night. Remember how much you used to love making friendship bracelets? Now is your chance to introduce this joy to your family! The idea is that you make  a bracelet out of thread or twine. Use beads or don't. Tie it on your wrist and make a wish. When it finally falls off, your wish will come true! 

The thinner the bracelet, the quicker it will wear out. I guess that is just common sense. Use your creativity or check out Pinterest. Search for wish bracelet or friendship bracelet and you will come up with innumerable options. For this one, i just used some cording. I braided it, tied a knot and slipped on my beads, then another knot, more braiding and tie it off. Easy peasy! 

This is such a cute little craft and a wearable reminder of the great family memories you made during your movie night! This printable is included in the Printable Aladdin Movie Night kit in my shop. Link up to your amazing wish bracelet creations in the comments!

Keep Moving Forward

Last year, I made a goal to run the Disney Half Marathon in 2016. Guess where I was marathon weekend? We were finishing up a Harry Potter movie marathon while eating.. well.. nothing good. A couple days later, I asked my husband if he would like to run the half marathon with me next year. Bless him, he said "Of course!" without skipping a beat. This interaction elicited a chuckle from others within earshot. Rightly so I suppose, but it got me thinking. 

One of Walt's most famous quotes is "Keep moving forward". So what does that mean for us? Well, for me, in that moment, it meant that my past mistakes weren't going to dictate the future. I can let them inform my decisions without weighing on them. Does failing once mean I am doomed to failure forever?  I often get down on myself when I don't accomplish a goal. It is easy for me to let my disappointment keep me from trying again. Well, not anymore!

I resolve to keep moving forward,  literally and figuratively. And this time will be different with a little accountability (now that I'm putting out there in the bloggerverse).

I will keep looking forward. I am a goal maker and I won't let this discourage me from keeping that up. So, I guess I should go strap on my running shoes, huh? I am not moving anywhere sitting in this computer chair! 

How are you going to move forward this year? Sound off in the comments and the rest of us can hold YOU accountable!
