It is no secret that I cannot wait for Avengers: Infinity War to hit theaters on May 4th. I am a bit of a Marvel Fan Girl, in case you did not know, and have been counting the days for years. As a big comic book fan, I have seen this coming for quite some time. If you are not someone who reads comics, let me suggest at least five that you should pick up before heading to theaters. Trust me, this will help you walk in to the film prepared – but won’t give anything away!

Mama’s Geeky Must Have Video Games Series: Scribblenauts Showdown | #Scribblenauts #ReadySetParty

We are a gaming family. I mean, we have basically every gaming console ever made (yes I have the original NES still – although it is in the attic and not set up – but that is another story). When we first heard about Scribblenauts Showdown, we knew it was likely be an instant hit with our family. We love battling it out with each other and are constantly playing games like Mario Kart, 1, 2, Switch, and Bomberman. All four of us have some competitiveness about us, so this game was right up our alley! Luckily for us, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment gave us a copy to check it out the day it came out – and we fell in love right away!

Mama’s Geeky’s Must Have Video Games Series: Cuphead | #CupHead #XBOX

I don’t want to say we went out and bought an XBOX One X solely so that we could play Cuphead, but I will say that it was a huge part of the reason why. My husband and I had been waiting for this game since it was announced. The fact that it is totally hand painted is super fun and old school – and we just love it! Was this game well worth the cost on an XBOX One X? I say yes!

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.

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.

5 Reasons We Go To Disney on Ice Every Year | #DisneyOnIce #DreamBig

As you likely already know, the Smith family are HUGE Disney fans. We are Disney Vacation Club members and visit Walt Disney World at least twice a year. We pretty much eat, breath, and live Disney, so when Disney on Ice comes to town, we always make sure to go see it. This year, thanks to Feld Entertainment, we were able to attend opening night. The theme for this show was Dream Big, and I am not going to lie, it made me tear up a few times. We go ever single year, and here is why.

Black Panther is hitting theaters in February 2018 and is highly anticipated by Marvel fans everywhere. I am certainly one of those fans who is dying to see what Marvel does with this film.

If you don’t normally read the comics, but want a good background on the man himself, Black Panther, before heading to theaters in February, here are 5 books I think you should pick up.
