5 Reasons I Love Kelly Thompson’s Captain Marvel #1 | #CaptainMarvel

As you likely already know, Carol Danvers has been one of my favorite characters in Marvel comics for a very long time. And even though I did NOT agree with her stance in Civil War II, I still love her.  The Life of Captain Marvel comic run just ended and dropped a couple major bombs. Carol has been through a lot lately, and has learned things that will effect her for a very long time to come. Captain Marvel #1 just came out this week, and picked up her story right where it left off. I read this comic through 5 times yesterday because it is THAT good. And here is why.

Giveaways A Dog's Way Home

Win A Dog’s Way Home Prize Pack To Celebrate Theater Release!

You probably already know this if you follow me, but I have two dogs – a pug named Khaleesi, and a puggle named Sansa. They are a huge part of our family and we love them so much, I cannot imagine how it would be if they got lost or ran away. A Dog’s Way Home is about a dog who takes off to chase a squirrel (something I could totally see our Sansa doing) and she has to find her way home. This is something that my whole family wants to see because we love a heartwarming tale, especially one that involves dogs.

Why Every Parent Should Watch Love, Simon (Spoiler Free Review)

I finally got around to watching Love, Simon – I know, I know. It has been months since it came out but the timing never worked out. Now that I have seen it (twice because it was that good), I am ready to sing its praises to everyone. Love, Simon is a movie that every single parent should watch – no matter how accepting you are. If I had seen it before my top 10 list of 2018 movies was put out, it probably would have been in my top 5.

Ben 10: Out to Launch Arrives on DVD February 12th!

My daughters both love Ben 10. It has been one of their favorite shows since the first time they watched it. My six year old is such a big fan that a lot of her Christmas presents were Ben 10 themed. So she was thrilled (and so were we) when a special package from Cartoon Network arrived at our door. It contained the newest DVD – Ben 10: Out to Launch – as well as a Playmates Toys’ Ben 10 Deluxe Transforming Figure. Of course now we plan to collect them all!

What I Really Think About Colton as The Bachelor

When Colton was first announced as this year’s The Bachelor, I was less than thrilled. After watching him, not only on Becca’s season, but on Bachelor in Paradise, I just felt like he wasn’t ready. It has nothing to do with his age, I was married at age 25. But everything to do with how he treated Tia. Perhaps he really did fall in love with Becca, but he was confused about Tia because of it. I just hope he has matured since then. I have seen the first episode of The Bachelor already, and I am cautiously optimistic.

5 Comic Books You Need to Read Before Seeing Captain Marvel

I have told you before I am sure, but Carol Danvers has been one of my favorite Marvel ladies for a long time. Back when she was Ms. Marvel, she was amazing, and I was hooked on her story lines. And then she became Captain Marvel, which was insanely cool. She is a total badass. Super strong. She can take down Iron Man guys. And HARD! With the Captain Marvel movie hitting theaters this March, all fans should be familiar with some story lines. Here are the five comic books that I recommend reading before you go see Captain Marvel.

My Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2019

2018 was an amazing year for movies, and it looks like 2019 is going to be just as good, if not better. There are so many movies that I am looking forward to! It was super hard to narrow my list down to the top 10 (so you know I put in some honorable mentions too). At the end of the year I will come back with my top 10 movies of the year, and it will be interesting to see which ones, if any, overlap. Hopefully these all live up the hype I have for them!

SyFy’s Deadly Class Is An Instant Hit

From the moment I heard that Deadly Class was going to become a show on SyFy, I was thrilled. I knew it was based off a comic book, which I had not read, but had only heard good things about from my fellow comic book reading friends. Then I saw that the Russo Brothers were executive producers and I knew it was going be out of this world. Well, I watched the premiere episode last night and I was hooked instantly!

Artemis Fowl Inspired Vanilla Pop Tart Milkshake Recipe | #ArtemisFowl

As I am sure you know by now, the hit book series Artemis Fowl is soon to be a major motion picture from The Walt Disney Studios! Yea, I am super excited! This was one of my favorite series to read growing up, and I have now been introducing my seven year old to the series. We are on the third book and she is hooked – just like I was. To help celebrate the series, we made some Artemis Fowl inspired milkshakes together, and I am going to tell you how you can make them too.
