As you likely know by now, I have a thing for superheroes. They are kind of a major part of my life. So of course, The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies. I saw it theaters when it came out and when my husband and I honeymooned at Walt Disney World, we were so excited to meet Mr. and Mrs. Incredible. We had not met before this movie came out, but it was a favorite of each of ours before we even met. So when Incredibles 2 was announced a while back, we both starting counting the days until it’s release! Then something really exciting happened – Disney & Pixar invited me to check out Pixar in person, as well as some footage of Incredibles 2! The event takes place April 3rd to the 5th, so be sure to follow along with #Incredibles2Event.
There is no bond quite like the one between mother and child. The moment I birthed my children, I knew that. But did I know that the whole time I was pregnant? Nope. I was terrified – I mean, TERRIFIED – that I would not love my children the way so many mothers do. I was afraid that I would not know how to take care of them, and I was afraid that I would be a bad mom.
As you likely know already, I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. My girls and I watch all of the Star Wars shows – and they have even seen some of the movies. We are slowly working our way through them, as they are only 5 and 6, but I love their excitement over them. One of our favorite Star Wars shows to watch as a family is LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures. Well, season 2 was just released on DVD, and I consider it a must buy! To help celebrate it’s release, I have teamed up with Star Wars to bring you the chance to win an amazing $125 Easter Basket totally themed for Star Wars!
This past week I finally saw Black Panther in theaters. I know, I know. I might as well turn in my Marvel fan girl card right now. We were at Disney when it came out and we had opted not to take the girls. After seeing it, I am really glad we made that decision. When we came home my husband had a lot of time to makeup at work and had to work late nights and the weekend. Then the following weekend, we had plans to go but had to cancel our sitter when the stomach bug hit our house hard. Finally, my husband and I made it to a Monday matinee. I am so glad that we saw this movie because it made me feel all sorts of feelings – from laughter, to sadness, and even shame.
I went and saw Pitch Perfect in theaters with my husband when it first came out. We are both big fans of Anna Kendrick and were very excited to see it. It blew us away and instantly hoped there would be a sequel. When Pitch Perfect 2 came out, we saw that in theaters too. Unfortunately, we were unable to get a sitter to see Pitch Perfect 3 in theaters, so I was super excited to get a copy in the mail from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment!
You might now know this about me but Winnie the Pooh was one of my favorite things when I was growing up. I had a giant stuffed Eeyore, Pooh Bear, and Piglet – that OK, maybe I still own. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, we did not know gender, so had to go with a gender-neutral nursery. We went with a Winnie the Pooh theme and my husband free-handed some amazing murals on the wall. So when I heard that Disney was going to make a new film, Christopher Robin, I was ecstatic. I knew right away that it was something the whole family was going to see in theaters. Today, the teaser trailer came out, and it is everything.
In case you missed it, I shared a pretty amazing Thor: Ragna-ROCK Candy Cupcake recipe recently. As you likely know, I asked you guys to submit your Thor themed recipe for a chance to win a Thor: Ragnarok package. This package includes a copy of the movie on blu-ray/DVD/Digital, a Valkyrie Funko Pop, and a Thor Hammer/Hulk Fists set! Now, it is your turn to vote!
A Wrinkle In Time is hitting theaters on March 9th, 2018. I read the book when I was in grade school and it was easily one of my favorites. When this movie was announced, I was beyond excited. And then when the cast was announced, I was floored! To help celebrate this release, The Hopping Bloggers have come together to bring our readers A Wrinkle In Time prize pack worth over $150 that everyone will want to win!
If you guys know anything at all about me, then you know I am a HUGE Marvel fan girl and have been literally counting down to the release of Avengers: Infinity War. Well today I was browsing my social media apps as I normally do and then my world changed. I opened up Instagram and right there in from of my face, was a post from Marvel Studios. It was about Infinity War, but it looked….different. The date was wrong. It was no longer May 4th but a whole week earlier, April 27th.
Hopefully you have been following along with the #CountdownToInfinityWar fun on Twitter every week. Mama’s Geeky and As The Bunny Hops created a schedule of all the Marvel Cinematic Universe films to watch before the release of Avengers: Infinity War. Around the halfway mark (after Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 1), there will be a twitter party with some HUGE prizes. We are talking over $750 worth of prizes!
