The Ant-Man and The Wasp Trailer Is Finally Here + My Reaction Video! | #Marvel #AntManAndTheWasp

If you haven’t figured out that I am a giant (pun intended) Marvel fan. Ant-Man is one of my favorite comic book characters, especially the Scott Lang version. I think that Paul Rudd plays him perfectly, so I have been really excited to see what Ant-Man and The Wasp has in store for us! It feels like forever that we have known about this film, but we haven’t seen much of anything – UNTIL THIS MORNING. The Ant-Man and The Wasp trailer finally dropped, and it was well worth the wait!

Steven Universe: The Complete First Season Hits Stores This Week! | #StevenUniverse #CartoonNetwork

Cartoon Network is one of my family’s favorite channels. There are several shows that we can watch all together and Steven Universe is one of them. In fact, we have been toying with the idea of dressing up as Steven, Pearl, Amethyst, and Garnet for Halloween sometime. It works out perfectly since we are a family with three girls and one boy. When we found out that the entire first season of Steven Universe was going to be available on DVD, we were thrilled. Now, we have watched it all, but this way my daughters can watch it in the car on long trips, or in their rooms.

I Just Binged The First 4 Seasons of Agents of SHIELD and This Is What I Thought | #AgentsOfSHIELD

Recently I binge watched the first 4 seasons of Agents of SHIELD. Unfortunately I caught up to season 5 a little too late and now I have to wait for the first 3 episodes to resurface. Likely on Netflix once the whole season is over and that makes me very sad. Once I really got in to it, this easily became my favorite current drama. It is totally my own fault that I have to wait to see what happens to my favorite agents now. Anyways, these were my thoughts as I finished up season 4.

Napping Princess Is An Anime The Whole Family Will Love!

Every weekend, my family has a family movie night. We take turns picking a movie and cuddle up on the couch with some snacks. It is one of my favorite times of the week. I know that eventually my daughters will want nothing to do with my husband and I on a weekend night – or any night for that matter – and so I savor it. One movie we watched recently was Napping Princess. I was excited to get an advance copy, and so were my girls. We love Anime in our house, so we were eager to watch it. To be honest, I was a little worried it might be a bit adult for them, but they really enjoyed it.

5 Reasons To Read Marvel Comic’s Guardians of the Galaxy Infinity Quest NOW! | #CountdownToInfinityWar

In case you have been living under a rock, let me tell you that I am a bit of a Marvel fan. I love the comic books as well as the movies. I also have an insane amount of Marvel collectibles. As you might already know, the Guardians of the Galaxy are one of my all time favorites (I mean, hello, I have a full tattoo sleeve featuring them). Lately, they have been tossed around the comic book universe. What I mean by that is there was a short run by Brian Bendis, then another by Garry Duggan, which abruptly went from All New Guardians of the Galaxy #12 to Guardians of the Galaxy Infinity Quest #146 (still written by Garry Duggan) seemingly over night. Which is not entirely a bad thing, however, because man, is it good.

Mama’s Geeky’s Must Have Video Games Series: Rayman Legends | #UbiStar #Rayman #RaymanLegends

Seeing as we are a family of four, we love that there is four player couch co-op in Rayman Legends for the Nintendo Switch! This is one of the few games we can all play together without taking turns. Our girls are young, but boy do they love it. We have had some real fun with the 100+ maps that are in this game. That means hours and hours of fun.

2018 Disney Studios, Marvel, & LucasFilm Movie Slate – We Are In For Quite A Year! | #Disney #Marvel #StarWars

As I am sure you know, I am a big fan of movies. It is hard with young kids, but my husband and I try to go to the movies at least once a month. Of course, for most Disney films, we can take them along with us. 2018 is going to be one incredible year – for the entire Smith family. From Marvel films that I could have dreamed of 10 years ago, to re-imaginings and sequels of a couple of my favorite films – it is going to have it all.

Get The Debut Album From Whole Damn Mess – The Queen and The Outcast – Now | #WholeDamnMess

You might know this about me already, but I am a huge fan of music. There is a record player in my front room on the first floor of my house and whenever I need a moment to myself to just relax, I sit in there and put it on. Music is so powerful, so I was thrilled to get the chance to preview the debut album from Whole Damn Mess, The Queen and The Outcast. I was pretty much blown away by this album. I enjoyed it so much that I listened to it three times in a row. It was really powerful and is clearly all about a fantastic love story.

A Marvel Cinematic Universe Countdown to Infinity War: One Movie A Week Until May 4th! | #Marvel #InfinityWar #CountdownToInfinityWar

This may come as a huge shock to you, but I am a bit of a Marvel fan. All kidding aside though, the countdown is ON for Avengers: Infinity War and I am over the moon excited about it. I am not ready for some of my favorite characters to die, or willing to admit it will happen, but let’s just say my purse will be full of tissues when I hit the theaters on May 4, 2018. In order to prepare ourselves, I teamed up with my girl Amy from As The Bunny Hops. Together, we created a viewing schedule for all the Marvel Cinematic Universe films – one a week until Infinity War hits theaters. We even did all the hard work and found out where you can watch them.
