I’m pretty excited about this new movie I Feel Pretty hitting theaters this April 20th.  I caught a glimpse of the trailers on Facebook and thought it looked great.  Amy Schumer character struggles with insecurity in the beginning and it all changes with unforeseen events.  Giving her insecurity a run for its money!  I couldn’t imagine a better way to do a Mommies night out with this flick!

A Quiet Place Giveaway

quiet-place

 

Have you seen the trailers for A Quiet Place? One scene, in particular, catches my interest. The Abbott family sits down for a silent family dinner, and they wordlessly hold hands and gesture to “say” grace before eating out of lettuce leaves with no utensils.  

a-quiet-placeThis had me thinking If they don’t use forks and knives — or even speak more than a whisper —some kind of horrible monster would rush into their home and shred them all to pieces.  

A-Quiet-Place-Movie-Review-2018

What would you do if you had to live in that nightmare?  This literally had me thinking about what would be a good recipe to eat in silence.

I thought this Creamy Avocado Tuna Sandwich (by: Give Recipe) would be perfect and it would keep you replenished for hours. The only utensil I would use is a manual can opener and boom.  Lunch is served.

Ingredients

2 oz Canned tuna

 

1 Avocado, ripe

1 Lemon
2 Lettuce, leaves
1 handful Parsley
 1 Salt
1 tsp Olive oil
 

 

directed by John Krasinski,

Synopsis:

Paramount Pictures describes the film, “In the modern horror thriller A Quiet Place, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threatens their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.”

A Quiet Place definitely looks like a Thriller with some very vivid scary moments you wouldn’t want to miss.  Where do these Aliens come from? How many are out there? How many other families are surviving in a world of silence? I just need to know if this family will survive this epidemic, considering his wife looks pregnant. What a nightmare!

Monster Jam was a hit!

IMG_4506

Monster Jam 2018 was a phenomenal experience. This was my families first year attending.  I didn’t know what to expect. The only thing I ever really paid attention for Monster Jam was the toys. My son always wanted us to buy him some.  But I never knew it was an actual thing big show.  Some of the Monster Trucks competing were recognizable and so fascinating to see in person, I even found my son cheering the Gravedigger and George on.  

Rampage-Movie-2018

The show had so many great elements, of freestyle and racing, that time just went by so fast. The best part of the show was definitely the finale.  They collaborated an awesome show with the new upcoming film Rampage and it was a spectacular 12 min show.  

IMG_4489

The crowd went crazy and it was definitely the highlight of the last day of Monster Jam.  We can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with for next year. 

IMG_4512 Next year we will be more prepared. Since this was our first year attending, I had no idea how loud it was going to be.  My son had a hard time on Friday, due to his inability to tolerate loud noises. We weren’t able to stay for the whole show because of it.  But Saturday’s show we came prepared.  We went to Big 5 and purchased an inexpensive noise-canceling headset for only $15.00.  Which really made a difference for my son.

Although we didn’t want the show to end.  It was pretty awesome seeing all the Monster Trucks driving out one last time.  It was definitely exciting to seeing all the drivers and the crowds going wild.

From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love.

Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light. Directed by Emmy(R) winner and Oscar(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominee Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Oscar-winner Jennifer Lee based upon the beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle, “A Wrinkle in Time”

I’m definitely excited to see what this film has in store with the phenomenal cast and exceptional script-based book. This classic has a hit written all over it.  Based on all the trailers youtube has, the film is definitely got my families attention, and can we just say anything Disney produces is always a hit.
