Thor: Ragnarok Trailer Sets Record

Real talk: Thor was my first Marvel bae. I’ve been anxiously waiting for more news about Thor: Ragnarok which opens on November 3, 2017.

Nine New Disney Legends Honored at D23 Expo 2017

Two years ago I sat in the same room as Susan Lucci, Johnny Depp, and George Lucas as they became Disney Legends Honored at D23 Expo. It was an experience I will never forget. The room was electric and I was in awe as one by one their careers and stories were shared with the […]

Ka-Chow! Cars 3 Road to the Races Nationwide Tour

The Nintendo Switch: Anytime, Anywhere

While I’m not a huge gamer, my kids sure are. Especially the 45-year-old one I’m married to. Ahem. When we were offered a chance to check out the new Nintendo Switch we jumped at the offer. Okay, everyone else jumped and I reluctantly agreed. I was pleasantly surprised with what I learned about this new […]

Beauty and the Beast Valentine Cards

February is a month known for love. And we love Beauty and the Beast around here! Here’s a few Beauty and the Beast Valentine’s cards to print and share.  I had a small freakout this morning when I dropped the kids off at school. I saw one child walking in with a plastic bag full […]

Super Bowl Monday Musings

The Super Bowl is still going on while I’m writing this. And it’s a nail biter. Holy cow. But I’m not here to talk about touchdowns and turnovers and penalties. Let’s talk about the halftime show. GAGA, y’all. She killed it. I just shared this fun nugget this morning on Facebook. All the halftime shows […]
