This post is sponsored by Tradewinds and Mom It Forward. All opinions are my own. Nothing says summer like a cool refreshing glass of Tradewinds Tea.

Summer may be over but there is still time on the weekends to curl up on the couch and binge watch Disney movies all day. We tend to do this on our lazy Sundays. This month of August there are 3 new Disney movies coming to Blu-ray and DVD to a store near you. They are Descendants 2, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and The Lion King.
