Descendants 2: Behind the Scenes with Director/Choreographer Kenny Ortega | #Desecendants2

While in LA recently, I was lucky enough to check out some footage of Descendants 2 and talk with the cast and crew. One of my favorite interviews was with Director/Executive Producer/Co-Choreographer Kenny Ortega, Executive Producer Wendy Japhet, and Screenwriter Sara Parriott. Kenny Ortega is a legend guys – I mean, Hocus Pocus & Dirty Dancing. I always enjoy picking the brains of those that work behind the scenes to make our favorite movies.

Dove Cameron Says Mal Is Her Ride Or Die & Talks More Descendants 2 | #Descendants2

When in LA recently I was lucky enough to talk with Dove Cameron, who plays Mal in Descendants and Descendants 2. She was beyond sweet and I just loved our time with her. Speaking with her, I could tell how much she loves playing Mal and how much the character means to her. She is one of the few actresses that my young girls really look up to, and having met her, I can say I am very thankful of that.

Sofia Carson Talks Descendants 2 & Has An Inspiring Message for Young Women | #Descendants2

One of my favorite people to interview is Sofia Carson. I was lucky enough to talk with her and Sabrina Carpenter when Adventures in Babysitting was coming out, and now again for Descendants 2. Sofia is insanely sweet – and it makes me feel good that my young daughters look up to her. After the interview, I mentioned how my oldest wants to be Evie, and Sofia made a video for the kids of us bloggers! I can tell you that I earned some serious cool mom points because of that.

Get to Know The New VK, Uma, In This Exclusive Interview with China McClain | #Descendants2

China McClain is joining the cast of Descendants in Descendants 2 as Uma, Ursula’s daughter. Ursula has always been one of my favorite Disney Villains so I was eager to learn about Uma when in LA for the Descendants 2 Event a couple months ago. From the footage we were lucky enough to see, Uma is pretty amazing. She is strong and powerful, and China plays her perfectly.

Hot New Mobile Game Snoopy Pop Out Today + Win A Samsung Galaxy Tablet | #SnoopyPop #PopGoesTheSnoopy

t should come as no surprise to you to hear that I am big into mobile gaming. I have been gaming since I was a little girl and still do every chance I get. In fact, I am raising my daughters to be little gamers themselves. They are 4 and 5 right now and ask to play games every night. We recently got a Samsung Galaxy Tab A preloaded with a mobile game that wasn’t even out yet (until today!) – Snoopy Pop! To say they were excited to try it out is an understatement.

Keep Track of Your Pet & Their Health with Paby Smart Pet Tracker | #Paby #PetParents

We are a dog family. There are two of them in our family, a pug named Khaleesi, and a puggle named Sansa (clearly we are Game of Thrones fans). Our pug is great at staying in the yard and causing no issues, but the puggle, who just turned one, likes to push our buttons. She will normally stay in the yard, but she likes to find places to hide that we didn’t even know about. That is why we were really excited to try out the new smart pet tracker, Paby.

Make Family Movie Night Fun with Smurfs: The Lost Village & Smurfs Cupcakes | #SmurfsMovie #Smurfs

Make it a family movie night with the beloved blue creatures in the fully animated, all-new take on The Smurfs when Sony Pictures Animation’s SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE debuts on 4K Ultra HD™/Blu-ray™ + Digital, Blu-ray + Digital and DVD July 11 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. I grew up watching the Smurfs and so did my husband – so this was a movie we knew we wanted to share with our daughters. We have really enjoyed the past Smurfs movies, and this one did not disappoint either.

Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory | #THBHop #Giveaway

I grew up watching Tom and Jerry – and have since shared my love for them with my daughters. My girls are 4 and 6 and some of the biggest Tom and Jerry fans out there. I was shocked to see them sit and watch the old cartoons for hours. I mean, they would watch episode after episode. It surprised me mostly because in many of them (maybe all?), Tom and Jerry don’t talk, which I figured might be a little boring for younger kids.

5 Reasons Spider-Man: Homecoming is this Marvel Fan Girl’s Favorite Spider-Man to Date | #SpiderManHomecoming

I want to preface this review by saying that I enjoyed both Toby McGuire and Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. Loved them even. As you likely know by now if you come here regularly, I am a giant Marvel Comics fan. That means that at times, I can be picky about the movies that bring my favorite characters to life. I will be honest, I went in to Spider-Man: Homecoming not knowing what to expect. But I was blown away by it. Dare I say it was my favorite Spider-Man movie to date? I do.
