We Pursued & We Found the Magic This Week

Normally I post my weekly recap on Sundays, but for the new year, I have decided to move them to Saturdays.

It is hard to believe that the holidays have already passed us by and we are through the first week of 2012.  As we start off this new year, I am looking forward to so many things.  One being that I am finally going to be posting my trip report from our Halloween trip to Walt Disney World!  Over the next few months I will be reviewing our stay at Disney's Polynesian Resort, our experience with Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and so much more.  Of course, you know from my previous post with Magical Blogorail Green that I am getting myself ready for a Disney race, which I could not be more excited about!  If there is ever anything you would like to know more about, feel free to ask and I can share my Disney experiences with it, or I can certainly find someone who has the answer!

This past week at Pursuing the Magic:

Monday, I kicked off this month's series "In Pursuit of Pirates."  I shared where my Disney obsession began.  Throughout the month, I have lots of guest bloggers who will be sharing their perspective on my favorite Disney attraction from photo tips to scrapbooking layouts to recipes and even perspectives from other Disney parks besides Walt Disney World.

Tuesday, I shared an article I wrote for the WDW Daily News Newsletter.  It is one of my favorite vacation memories from our recent trip: A New Toy for Pluto? ~ A Memorable Moment at Chef Mickey's

Wednesday, I joined in the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Deb at Focused on the Magic.  I shared photos of a few of my children's "Disney Firsts."

Friday, I was featured over at Jedi Mouseketeer sharing all the new LEGO Star Wars kits being released this month.

Of course this was also the week that Disney released details of their new Disney promotion "One More Disney Day."  For all the details, my fellow Magical Blogorail member, Bruce at A World View, has a great overview of all the details, as well as how to enter the daily sweepstakes to win a trip to Walt Disney World or Disneyland.  Have you been entering everyday?  I have!!

Also, a big thank you to Jodi at Magical Mouse Schoolhouse!  I won her giveaway and she sent me a Magical Mouse Schoolhouse T-shirt and a great Princess fashion kit, which my girls love!  If you haven't checked out Jodi's Wednesday giveaways, make sure you do!  You test your Disney knowledge and win some great prizes!

Speaking of giveaways, The Disney Moms are having a Dooney & Bourke giveaway.  Make sure you check them out to see what you need to do to enter.  Also, I will be posting my first contribution to The Disney Moms next Saturday with a Disney craft you can do with your kids!

How did you find Disney magic this week?  I would love to hear about it!
