Get Ready To Be Blown Away By The NEW Trailer & Poster for Black Panther! | #BlackPanther #Marvel

I am a pretty big fan of Marvel, in case you somehow missed out on that. I have been reading Marvel Comics since I was a little girl – so you can imagine how excited I am about all of the Marvel movies coming out. This is certainly a great time to live in if you are a geek like me. Thor: Ragnarok is the next Marvel Studios film to come out (and I can’t wait for you all to see it – it is so good!!) but after that will be Black Panther. After seeing the latest poster and trailer, I was blown away. I already know this film would be amazing, but now I am really counting the days.

Bernard David Jones and Marcel Spears From ABC’s The Mayor Talk Politics, David Spade, & More! | #ThorRagnarokEvent

My husband and I are always looking for new shows that we can enjoy together. We love a good comedy and so when we first saw the commercial for ABC’s new show, The Mayor, we thought it might be a good one to try out. Both of us laughed through the whole thing, so it seemed like something we would like. A few of the actors in the show are favorites of ours and we tuned in the first week it aired. I am glad we did because little did I know just a week later I would get to interview some of the cast!

I Ran Into Some Friends From Work on the Thor: Ragnarok Red Carpet – James Gunn & Kevin Feige! #ThorRagnarokEvent

There is nothing like a Marvel red carpet – and no two are the same. I recently hit up LA and attended the Thor: Ragnarok premiere and of course, it was an amazing experience. I was really excited about this one because it was at one of my favorite theaters – the El Capitan Theatre – which I had not been to for a while. It is a totally gorgeous and historic theater and I highly recommend that everyone go visit it at some point in their life. I knew this was going to be a busy carpet, but I didn’t realize just how amazing the vibe would be. It was so high energy and buzzing with excitement.

Choosing Age Appropriate Games for Your Kids + A Super Mario Odyssey Giveaway! | #SuperMarioOdyssey

As you probably know, we play a lot of video games in our family. My daughters are pretty young – only 4 and 6 years old. Because of this we need to really pay attention to video game ratings. We know that there are many benefits to gaming for kids and thanks to GameStop and UpNorthLive, we were given some great tips on age appropriate gaming. Sometimes my husband and I forget just how young they are while selecting video games as gifts for the girls.

Disney Kingdom Hearts Funko GameStop Exclusive Box – UNBOXED! | #KingdomHearts #Funko #GameStop

My husband is a HUGE Kingdom Hearts fan. In fact, he is currently in the process of getting a Kingdom Hearts tattoo on his arm – and it is pretty fantastic. When we found out that GameStop was creating an EXCLUSIVE Kingdom Hearts Funko POP box, well, we were pretty darn excited. I have quite the Funko POP collection – OK, I will admit it, I am addicted to them. And my husband “lets me” keep his in my office, so I was all for him getting this box.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game is a Hit! | #LEGONinjagoMovie #Nintendo

I have always loved playing video games – ever since I was a young girl and got my first Nintendo system. I enjoy all types of games, but some of my favorites have always been the LEGO games. These games can occupy me for literal hours on end. We own quite the collection of them – Harry Potter, Marvel Super Heroes, Dimensions, and now we have added the LEGO Ninjago Movie! I was super excited to see this show up in the mail because I just knew I would love it!

Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions Is Perfect For Any Nintendo Fan | #PlayNintendo

We are a family of gamers – so imagine our excitement when Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions showed up on our doorstep! One of the reasons we were practically jumping up and down was because it was nearly a full three weeks before it’s release to the public. This is a game that we had been waiting a long time for, and we couldn’t wait to dig right in! My daughter, Ivy, and I started playing it immediately – and quickly became addicted to it.

Own Disney’s Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary on DVD Now! | #Disney #MickeyMouse

Whenever we go to Walt Disney World or on a Disney Cruise, one of our favorite things to do is watch the cartoons on the TV. So imagine how excited we were to see that a bunch of Halloween & Christmas themed ones were put on to a DVD. When we were sent a copy of Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary, we opened it right up and put it on. Watching these cartoons totally transported us back to Disney World, and we felt like we were really there again. I just know this DVD will be watched whenever we are missing it there (which is all the time!).

Win A Copy Of Bruce’s Big Move + A $50 Gift Card | #BrucesBigMove #FollowBruce #Giveaway

One of my favorite things to do with my girls is cuddle up and read a good book. It is something that we look forward to doing almost every day as a family. Recently, we received an advance copy of Bruce’s Big Move from Disney-Hyperion, and I must say, we loved it right away. The story itself is cute and funny – and we can’t help but love the grumpy bear Bruce. It even teaches a great lesson to kids – there’s no place like home.
