A new venture for The Frugal Socialite. I'm laughing as I watch this video. I am in such the groove of teaching English As A Second Language, online every morning, that I am talking like I'm teaching students, LOL. Big thanks to SAB Media & Tom Brown for the studio time! Alma Thomas and Colin Cooper how was your day for being my cheering section at the end of our business meeting. They didn't know what they were getting into!

Disney's official promo for the event.

The Frugal Socialite is losing her touch. I thought I was in good with Disney reps, but low and behold,
I was out of the loop on Disney’s newest event that hit theaters across the nation today.

A lot of my time is spent occupying and entertaining my toddler. My 3 year old leaves school inquiring about our next stop. “Mommy, are we going to the playground, Chuck E. Cheese, Pump It Up or a restaurant?” If none of those get a “yes”, the next question is whether so-and-so – insert name of his handful of playmates -- is coming to play with him.

The Frugal Socialite has been invited to be Disney’s special guest at “Dinner with Disney”
next Thursday, September 16th at Old Ebbitt Grill. Mickey’s bringing some of Disney Parks’ diverse cuisine to D.C!

It’s a private event, for Disney’s Mom Bloggers only, BUT, I’ll bring back goodies for my readers and great opportunities to get up close with Mickey. Can’t wait to see Disney reps, Laura Spencer and Leanne Jakubowski again, and to finally meet Maria Bailey, of BSM Media, who has invited me to so many events, but we’ve never connected.

Instead of being frustrated at trying to shoot a video while my toddler jumped around, I decided to let him be part of the project. He "helped" me record my entry into Oprah's OWN Network show contest. I'm pitching the idea of a Frugal Socialite show. He truly is a mini-socialite! By himself, with no prompting from me, he started repeating the things I was saying, and tell me, is he a natural?

Who knew you could put on the Ritz for a few cents? I had a blast appearing today on WUSA9's noon news with J.C. Hayward to talk about The Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City's 20th Anniversary deals. New Executive Chef, Frederic Chartier, brought not only his new signature dish, Salmon Rillette, to life on the show, but created a little "a la la" with his French accent! The hotel's Fyve Restaurant and Lounge has a little Parisian flair in the house with the addition of Chef Chartier. Inexpensive and The Ritz Carlton seems to be an oxymoron, but The Frugal Socialite found deals to make your mouth water and your budget stay in tact.

Many of us practically live in the Costco across the street or at least breeze through Pentagon City Mall, but how m...
