Disney’s Dumbo Movie Trailer

Dumbo is a movie that I grew up watching. Then, when I became a mom, it became even more special to me as I fully understood the bond between Dumbo and his mom, who would do anything–ANYTHING for her little one. I am loving this trend of animated movies coming to life, and this is going to be another good one! Check out the trailer below:

Here is a little more info on the film:

“From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure DUMBO expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.”

Disney's Dumbo

I can’t wait! Did you grow up watching Dumbo? What are you most excited about in Disney’s Dumbo?

Toy Story 4 Reaction Video

Just when I thought I couldn’t get any more excited about Toy Story 4, Disney Pixar does. it. again. Yesterday a teaser trailer was released, and now today, we have an adorable reaction video featuring two of our newest friends, Ducky and Bunny. Yall. These guys are hysterical and I cannot wait to see what funny lines they will have in the film. It’s going to be amazing.

So who are Ducky and Bunny? Check it out:

“Woody’s journey in “Toy Story 4” includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.”

Aaaahhhh! It’s going to be epic. I can’t wait. Between Forky, Ducky, and Bunny, Toy Story 4 is going to be out of this world, or could we say….to infinity and beyond? Because, you know…I know science and all. Heh.

What are you looking forward to most in this film? I would have said forky and Bonnie before, but now with the introduction of Ducky and Bunny, I think they may be my new favorites! I think Emma Kate is going to love them, too. Are your kids excited about the movie? Mine loves the new teaser trailer and the reaction video alike!

Don’t forget, Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.

Follow along on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, too!

Toy Story 4 Teaser Trailer

Ok guys, while I love all Disney movies I am SO PUMPED about this one! I grew up with Toy Story, and now Emma Kate is OBSESSED with the movies and the land in Walt Disney World (she lloovveess Alien Swirling Saucers!), so I know she is going to love Toy Story 4. When I woke up this morning and saw a teaser trailer was available, I knew I immediately had to share it with you guys. Check it out below:

 

Squueeeee!

Ok here is a little about the film:

“In Toy Story 4, we are welcoming new friends to Bonnie’s room, including a reluctant new toy called Forky. But Forky insists that he is NOT a toy! An actual spork-turned-craft-project, Forky is pretty sure that he doesn’t belong in Bonnie’s room. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get away, someone yanks him back into an adventure he’d rather skip. Forky is a toy that Bonnie made out of a disposable spork, so he’s facing a crisis. He wants to fulfill his purpose as a spork, but now has a new toy purpose thrust upon him.”

Toy Story 4

I love the storyline here! Finding your purpose is a great lesson and I’m sure there are many more tucked away in the film. Keep a lookout for more up and coming information, hopefully soon! I know I will be waiting with my four year old.

Also, did you know that “Toy Story 3” won Oscars® for best animated feature film and best achievement in music written for motion pictures, original song (Randy Newman/“We Belong Together”). The film also won a Golden Globe® and BAFTA for best animated film. It was the second Pixar film to be nominated for the best picture Oscar. It’s also Pixar’s second highest-grossing film of all time behind “Incredibles 2?”  I had no idea! I’m sure the new film will win awards, too.

“Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.

The Magic of Mary Poppins Returns

The magic of Disney is hard to explain. I have loved Disney movies, parks, stories and more for as long as I can remember, and the magic has always been my favorite part. There is just something you feel, something special about imagination, and believing that anything is possible. If I had to pick one movie that truly embodies that sentiment, it would be Mary Poppins. As a kid, watching the original movie, I dreamed of dancing with penguins and riding carousel horses with a super cool nanny who made everything a game.

That’s why I cannot wait for Mary Poppins Returns to hit theaters, and I can’t wait to share the magic and the music (girlfriend will dance to any music) with Emma Kate and hopefully she will continue to love the magic just like her mama. Check out this adorable special look below and let me know your thoughts!

MARY POPPINS RETURNS arrives in theatres everywhere on December 19th!

A New Perspective

Call me way behind in the times, but I JUST watched the movie Soul Surfer about Bethany Hamilton on Saturday night. It’s one of those movies I always wanted to see, but wasn’t going to go out of my way to rent, etc. My mom happened to DVR it the other day, so we all watched it together. Yes there were a few cheesy parts, and parts of Carrie Underwood’s performance reminded me of the Sound of Music live TV special, but I really, really loved the message.

john 137

Bobby and I are currently going through some unpleasant things in life, and we have said things that, just like the actress who played Bethany said….”I just don’t understand why this is happening to me.” In the movie, Carrie Underwood’s character challenges the kids to see things from a new perspective, that sometimes we are too close in on a situation, and need to back up a bit to try to see more of the big picture.

While I think this is a great thing to do, it is definitely easier said than done. For a control freak like me who likes to know everything NOW, waiting around to see the big picture, or waiting around to see that eventually something good will come of a situation, is not ideal in my mind….especially when I feel like I have already been waiting a long time.

It is my hope that maybe someone else can one day benefit by what we have been through/are going through and hearing our story (which is still in the making), so I do try really hard to set a good example and have a good attitude about it all, even when things don’t turn out as planned.

unnamed (2)

So, while I know this is a big week for us and could end very happily or with us being very discouraged, I pray that no matter what we will be able to keep it all in perspective and see the bigger picture. I hope you are encouraged today to not get frustrated by things in life, but instead to step back and think.

QOTD: Have you ever wanted answers to come right away, and to be able to see why certain things were happening to you? Did you end up seeing the bigger picture eventually?

Entertainment Updates

1.) Ok guys, I need some new books to read. I am looking for a couple of different things:

-A mindless beach read, the cheesier the better, but still has to be good. Smile

– Mamas, what are some good baby books I should be reading about life with a newborn? It will be here before I know it!

photo (9)

Who doesn’t love reading at the beach?

2.) Also, who else is super sad about the loss of Cristina on Grey’s Anatomy? She is my favorite character, and I am so beyond sad to watch her go. The show just won’t be as awesomely sarcastic without her.

3.) Who is excited for the next Hunger Games movie coming out in November? Have you seen this? Julianne Moore is going to make a great President Coin in my opinion. I cannot wait!

4.) Any other good movies out or coming out I don’t know about? I feel SO behind in this sort of thing. I think I am getting old.

5.) Bachelor starts up on Monday! Who will be sucked into the drama with me? (I seriously can’t help it. I know it’s awful).

QOTD: Pick a question (or more) and answer. Let’s chat!

New Favorites

I may be a little behind with my love for a few things but still wanted to talk about the “new to me” things I have been enjoying lately!

The Walking Dead

I have heard a lot of people profess their love for this show, and honestly, I was a bit scared to watch it. I am not a horror movie kind of girl. The thought of flesh eating zombies jumping out from behind buildings really freaks me out. However, I gave it a shot and I am happy to report in my opinion, the “walkers” are not even that scary. It’s mainly about surviving in a post apocalyptic world, with a lot more plot than just zombies chasing characters around. The zombies are actually quite dumb which is more funny to me than scary. Bobby and I are midway through season two and are really enjoying it. Can’t wait for season 4 to start in the fall!

The Kill Order

I have said before how I really loved the Maze Runner book series. I was at Target browsing the book section a couple weeks ago and stumbled about a prequel that I didn’t know existed called the Kill Order. I hurried home and downloaded into onto my tablet, then finished the book in three days. I loved it! Great way to round out the series and explain some of the things that happened in the 3 books that come after it.

The Elite

Another book I talked about last year was The Selection. I read it super fast and hated I had to wait a whole year for the next book to come out. Well, it finally came out and now I am awaiting the third! This is a good beach read type of a book, very easy and fun. It’s technically a young adult book, but I love it. (Hey, I’m young right?)

QOTD: Read any of these books? Love the Walking Dead?
