Did you know that February is anime month? My family is big into anime, from Pokemon to Attack on Titan, we love it all! Cowboy Beebop is one of the first television shows I ever binged. That show helped my love for anime grow – and my husband and I passed that love on to our daughters. They might only be 5 and 6, but they enjoy shows like Yo Kai Watch and Pokemon more than most other shows they watch. Not to mention, they collect all of the toys and games.
I am a big fan of sappy movies. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love action, comedy, and horror too, but if I am in the mood for a feel good movie, there is nothing else that will satisfy that craving. When Wonder hit theaters a few months ago, I really wanted to go see it. However, we just never got around to it. So I was thrilled to receive an advance copy from Lionsgate so I could finally watch this film.
The highly anticipated latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Black Panther, is finally almost out in theaters! On February 16th, travel to Wakanda as you get to know T’Challa, the King of Wakanda. Personally, I enjoy his story lines in Marvel comics, so I am thrilled to see where this movie takes us. I am totally hoping for a lot of set up for Avengers: Infinity War. To help celebrate Black Panther’s release, The Hopping Bloggers have come together to bring our readers a Black Panther prize pack worth $150 that everyone will want to win!
As you might remember, last month I told you about an amazing new album from Whole Damn Mess. It is called The Queen and The Outcast and I have been listening to it quite a bit lately. Now, I love a good love story, and that is truly what this album is all about. In fact, Don Miggs has said he was inspired by his love for his wife. How sweet is that? I, for one, am certainly glad for his relationship because it gave us this incredible album.
My family loves My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is one of the shows that we enjoy watching all together – yes, even my husband. So naturally we were excited when the latest DVD was sent to us by Shout Factory Kids! The episodes on Spring Into Friendship are some of our favorites – so we were thrilled! My personal favorite of season 7 was Just for Sidekicks, so I was super excited to see that one on there. That being said, all of the episodes included are pretty amazing and loved by my whole family. Adding this My Little Pony DVD to our collection was a must.
About five years ago we moved from Florida to New York for my husband’s job. I grew up in Massachusetts and one thing that I knew I was not looking forward to was the snow. What I underestimated was just how much more snow there is in upstate New York than I was used to. I learned to drive in the snow, so you would think I wouldn’t mind it. But I hate it. Well, let me correct myself. I hated driving in the snow. Especially after having kids. I would be a huge ball of nerves worried that I would slide wrong and get in an accident with them in the car. Well, thanks to the 2018 Kia Sorento, I have learned to enjoy driving in the snow.
One of my favorite movies is Bad Moms. I went to see it in theaters with a group of girlfriends and have seen it several times since. I own it on blu-ray and put it on every few months. It makes me laugh so hard, even after having seen it multiple times. The movie totally captures the truth about moms – and that is why I am really excited about the sequel, A Bad Moms Christmas. There was a lot going on at the time it was in theaters, so I didn’t get to go see it. Universal Studios sent me an advance copy of it on blu-ray and I could not wait to check it out.
You might know that my husband and I are huge Star Wars fans. I think I have said this before but we actually walked out at our wedding reception to the Imperial Death March. We have both been eagerly awaiting Solo: A Star Wars Story, and the trailer was FINALLY released this morning! To say it was amazing is an understatement. All of the actors look fantastic (I mean Donald Glover as Lando! MIND BLOWN!).
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and so it is time to start brain storming about gifts. Candy and flowers seem to be the go-to for just about anyone, but does everyone really like that? For me personally, I am on a diet so candy is a no go, and flowers die too quickly in my mind. I put together some items that would make great gifts for the whole family.
The next game in my must have video games series is Call of Duty: World War II. This game is the latest game in a long franchise of Call of Duty games. If you haven’t picked it up yet, here is why you should!
