As you probably know already, I am a HUGE Marvel fan! One of the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe films is Thor: Ragnarok – and it is one of my favorites! I was lucky enough to walk to red carpet at the LA premiere and trust me, this movie is amazing. You probably already know this, but I interviewed some of the cast and filmmakers as well, so be sure to check those out! Thor: Ragnarok is finally coming to digital release TODAY (February 20th), and in order to celebrate, I have come up with a fun and delicious recipe for you. I brainstormed with Amy over at As The Bunny Hops for this one while we were discussing our #CountdownToInfinityWar fun.

Build Your Own Family Fun On Game Night With Sculptapalooza From Educational Insights!

If you are a fan of my website or social media accounts, than you know I have two little girls. Well, I shouldn’t say little anymore since they are now 5 and 6 years old. These girls love to play games. In fact, several times a week we sit down as a family for a game night. We always try to rotate the games that we play so that we don’t get bored, and the latest addition is Educational Insight’s SculptaPalooza. Believe me when I say that we have been laughing up a storm with this game!

Mama’s Geeky’s Must Have Video Games Series: Cuphead | #CupHead #XBOX

I don’t want to say we went out and bought an XBOX One X solely so that we could play Cuphead, but I will say that it was a huge part of the reason why. My husband and I had been waiting for this game since it was announced. The fact that it is totally hand painted is super fun and old school – and we just love it! Was this game well worth the cost on an XBOX One X? I say yes!

Take the Mysticons Character Quiz Plus Check Out the New Toys & Get A Chance To Win! | #Mysticons #Nickelodeon

I have two daughters, ages 5 and 6, so when we choose shows involving superheroes to watch together, those shows usually involve female superheroes. They connect with them better, and honestly, I like them seeing girls be the strong ones for once. Mysticons is one of our favorite shows, which you can watch on Nickelodeon. It has been on for about 6 months and in that time has become a huge hit with us! Even my husband enjoys it!

Celebrate We Love Anime Month with Amazing Deals From GameStop! | #WeLoveAnimeMonth #GameStop #Giveaway

Did you know that February is anime month? My family is big into anime, from Pokemon to Attack on Titan, we love it all! Cowboy Beebop is one of the first television shows I ever binged. That show helped my love for anime grow – and my husband and I passed that love on to our daughters. They might only be 5 and 6, but they enjoy shows like Yo Kai Watch and Pokemon more than most other shows they watch. Not to mention, they collect all of the toys and games.

Pick Up Wonder on 4K, Blu-ray, & DVD + A Fun DIY Wonder Activity! | #ChooseKind #Wonder

I am a big fan of sappy movies. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love action, comedy, and horror too, but if I am in the mood for a feel good movie, there is nothing else that will satisfy that craving. When Wonder hit theaters a few months ago, I really wanted to go see it. However, we just never got around to it. So I was thrilled to receive an advance copy from Lionsgate so I could finally watch this film.

The Love Story Behind The Queen and The Outcast + My Own Love Story | #WholeDamnMess

As you might remember, last month I told you about an amazing new album from Whole Damn Mess. It is called The Queen and The Outcast and I have been listening to it quite a bit lately. Now, I love a good love story, and that is truly what this album is all about. In fact, Don Miggs has said he was inspired by his love for his wife. How sweet is that? I, for one, am certainly glad for his relationship because it gave us this incredible album.

My Little Pony: Spring Into Friendship DVD Giveaway! | #MLP #MyLittlePony #Giveaway

My family loves My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is one of the shows that we enjoy watching all together – yes, even my husband. So naturally we were excited when the latest DVD was sent to us by Shout Factory Kids! The episodes on Spring Into Friendship are some of our favorites – so we were thrilled! My personal favorite of season 7 was Just for Sidekicks, so I was super excited to see that one on there. That being said, all of the episodes included are pretty amazing and loved by my whole family. Adding this My Little Pony DVD to our collection was a must.
