I am a huge Star Wars nerd! In fact, my husband and I went to Star Wars Weekend at Disney World for our honeymoon – and had a blast! We even got to meet Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett himself) and that was super cool! This past weekend was San Diego Comic-Con. I do wish I was there and I was totally living vicariously through my friends who were. There was a lot of amazing announcements that came out of this weekend, but most importantly, was all the Star Wars: The Force Awakens goodies. My husband and I are counting the days until this comes out (December 18th!)! I cannot wait to see it! I just know it is going to blow us out of the water!
These cupcakes are sure to impress your friends and family whether you are celebrating the movie release, having a Marvel or Superhero themed birthday party, or just entertaining for the summer. The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man” when master thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Be sure to go see Marvel’s Ant-Man in just 7 days (July 17th, 2015)!

My husband used to be in the United States Navy so military movies (especially Navy and Coast Guard ones) are always favorites in our house. Anything that has to do with the ocean and boats, you can pretty much guarantee we are going to see it in the theater. And if it is a Disney movie – well – nothing can keep us away. We are a Disney Household all the way. My husband and I honeymooned there and my daughters who are 4 and 2 are going for their second time in October.
I am counting the days until I get to see Ant-Man – just two weeks!! I have already heard so many rave reviews – and most of them from non-comic book readers. I would lie if I said I wasn’t a tad jealous of those that have already seen this film. My husband and I have already secured a date night for opening night and we can’t wait. We both read the comic books and knowing what hand Ant-Man has in many things – including the Avengers and something called the Dark Avengers – we are really hoping that Marvel steers that way. Dark Avengers would be, well, dark, so I am not sure they will go full blown, but we will have to wait and see. Ever since reading the Dark Avengers storyline, Scott Lang’s Ant-Man has been one of my favorite characters. Don’t get me wrong, I love Henry Pym, but Scott Lang truly brings something new to the suit – and I have a feeling Paul Rudd is going to capture that perfectly.
I am always looking for movies that I can enjoy with my daughters. There are…
I hope you tuned in to the Disney Channel watch Teen Beach 2 on Friday. It is an incredible movie with amazing values. I really enjoyed watching it when I went to LA (I even teared up a few times), and I enjoyed sharing it with my family last week even more. My husband, who “liked” the first one, was glued to the screen for the second one. He kept asking me what was going to happen – and of course, I kept my mouth shut and made him watch. He was pretty vocal about certain parts (don’t worry I won’t give anything away, but if you have seen the movie I bet you know what I am talking about – hint: surprise ending).
While in LA, I got the opportunity to sit down with the one and only Kyle Maclachlan. He is the voice of Dad in the new Disney/Pixar movie, Inside Out but you may also know him from Twin Peaks, Sex and the City, How I met Your Mother, and more recently, Agents of Shield. He is an incredible actor and his role in Inside Out is one of his top performances, in my opinion. I just love his character in the film – reminds me of my husband actually – total goofball! Several times his character had me tearing up as well – although I will not tell you when (no spoilers). If you have not yet seen Inside Out, stop reading this, run to the movies, and then come back and finish reading. It is that good – you need to go now!
Teen Beach 2 is a great movie to watch with friends and family. There is singing and elaborate dancing – it is so much fun. I think the best way to watch it when it airs this Friday (June 26th) would be to have some friends and family over and have a Summer “beach” party! I am talking beach activities, food, and of course, enough room to get up and try to dance along! I know that I plan to have a few people over and will be throwing a beach blast of my own! It really is the best way to experience Teen Beach 2 – even if you haven’t seen the first one (although, you still have time!).
OK everyone – TODAY IS THE DAY! Inside Out is in theaters everywhere and you need to go see this. It is a must-see summer movie that kids and adults are sure to love. I just got back from seeing it with my daughters, my husband, and my mom. We all laughed, and a few us shed some tears (guilty!). In order to celebrate this JOYful day – I have a few fun (and FREE) printables for you to download.
