Who Are The New X-Force Members That We Saw in the Deadpool 2 Final Trailer? | #Deadpool2 #XForce

This may come as a total shock to you – but I am a big Marvel comic books fan. I’m kidding – that should not shock you. And if it does, well that you just don’t know me well enough yet. Stick around and you will figure me out. Over the years I have collected a lot of comic books, but X-Force has always been in my top 5. My favorite run is probably volume 3, which was 2008 to 2010, or Uncanny X-Force, which was the one right after that. The teams were amazing and filled with some of my favorite characters.

Disney Channel’s Newest Original Movie, Zombies, On DVD 4/24!

When we were on our most recent family vacation at Disney World,  the newest Disney Channel Original Movie came out. I remember my husband and I cuddling up with our daughters on our bed at the Polynesian and watching Zombies. My girls are in to spooky things for some reason, and so this movie was right up their alley! Not too scary, but featuring one of their favorite things – ZOMBIES! Honestly, my husband and I really enjoyed this movie too.

DIY Archery Target To Help You Shoot Arrows Like Hawkeye! | #InfinityWar #Archery #DIY

We may not be seeing much of Hawkeye lately, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In fact, not seeing him in the Avengers: Infinity War trailers and posters could mean he is more important than we could even imagine. I have my own theories for him, and in less than two weeks we will know for sure. Sometimes I channel Hawkeye because I love archery. Where I live, there are not many places to shoot around, so I created my own target out of a few things I found in the basement. It was really easy, and did not take long at all.

A Tour of Pixar Animation Studios & The Pixar Archives to Prepare for Incredibles 2! | #Incredibles2Event

Incredibles 2 hits theaters in June and after heading to Pixar Animation Studios to learn all about it, I can pretty much guarantee it is going to be the movie of the summer. I was totally blown away by all the work that goes into creating an animated feature film. Stay tuned for all the details on that later, but right now I want to tell you guys all about my experience at Pixar Animation Studios. This place is amazing. I knew it would be surreal to step on to the campus, but I wasn’t prepared for all the emotions I would feel. And all the awesome things I would see.

Throw the Perfect Puppy Dog Pals Viewing Party! | #Disney #PuppyDogPals

Puppy Dog Pals is a hit show on Disney Junior and we love it in our home. It features two adorable pug puppies and since we have a pug (and a puggle), this quickly became a favorite in our house. It is one of the few kids shows that we can watch together as a family and all truly enjoy. On April 10th, the first season was released on DVD and we threw our own Puppy Dog Pals viewing party!

I’m Going To Spend My Birthday With Marvel At The Avengers: Infinity War Premiere! | #InfinityWarEvent

Recently, the most amazing email hit my inbox. Marvel was inviting me to attend the World Premiere of their most anticipated film yet – Avengers: Infinity War. If you know anything about me, you know I am a bit of a Marvel fan. So for me to be at the Infinity War Premiere – walking the red carpet – seeing the movie with the cast (as they watch it for the very first time) – WOW! I mean, WOW. There are really no other words to describe my excitement. But that is not all Marvel has in store for this group of 25 bloggers – oh no! And as if things couldn’t get any better – my birthday falls during the event. Talk about turning 34 in style!

5 Marvel Comic Book Series You Should Be Reading Right Now

As I am sure most of you know, I am a HUGE Marvel comic book fan. Before I had kids, I was subscribing to at least 40 comic series a month. Once I had the girls, I had to cut back – it wasn’t even a money so much as a time thing. Recently, I started picking up more and more series. These are my current favorites that I think EVERY Marvel fan should be reading. If you have a favorite that is not on this list, please let me know. I am always open to adding more Marvel series to my list.

Disney Junior’s Puppy Dog Pals Season One Comes to DVD!

My youngest daughter is obsessed with Puppy Dog Pals. I mean OBSESSED. Her fifth birthday party was Puppy Dog Pals – and her cake came out amazing by the way. We made sure that her gift was a Puppy Dog Pals playhouse. This was months ago and she still plays with it every single day. So when I found out that Disney Junior was releasing the first season on DVD, I knew she needed it. They sent us an advance copy and when it came in the mail, she cried happy tears.
